Are your IBS symptoms interfering with your daily living?

Hypnotherapy has been proven to reduce symptoms in a remarkable 80% of cases, and the improvements last for years.

The research evidence to support this is so dramatic and so overwhelming that Adriane Fugh-Berman, MD, chair of the National Women's Health Network in Washington, D.C., says that hypnosis should be the treatment of choice for severe cases of IBS.

Medically, the causes of IBS are unknown, so traditional treatment, which is effective only about 25% of the time, consists of fiber therapy, antispasmodic medications and antidepressants. In these cases, antidepressants function on the nervous system of the gut to reduce its sensitivity to pain and other sensations rather than acting as emotional antidepressants.

Hypnosis can help treat anxiety disorders in more than one way

The hypnotherapy program we use is a modified version from the research done by gastroenterologist P.J. Whorwell, MD, in Manchester, England, and Dr. Olafur Palsson’s research done at Eastern Virginia Medical Center.

Clients come for about  eight to ten sessions, typically spaced two weeks apart.  Since IBS symptoms fluctuate, results must be evaluated over a long period of time.  What Dr. Whorwell, and Dr. Palsson both found to be true is that the greater the number of sessions, the longer lasting relief the client gets.

Many clients report symptom relief after one to two sessions; however, unless they come for multiple sessions spaced over a period of months, they may notice a gradual “creeping back” of their symptoms. Clients following the multi-session approach have maintained their symptom improvements for years after the sessions ended.

The client is given a CD after "each" session and they are instructed to play the recording for themselves daily until the next session. All suggestions and imagery are “gut specific” and incorporate information on how a normal gastrointestinal system functions.  At the last session, clients are taught self-hypnosis techniques, and a maintainance CD is provided.
