Have you been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Do you struggle with discomfort in your stomach and gut? Do you feel bloated, have constipation or diarrhoea? Do you worry about going out in case you have an accident?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, is a functional disorder of the gut. It is a common illness affecting an estimated 1 in 5 of the population.
Certain foods are known to trigger IBS symptoms, such as fatty foods, caffeine and processed foods. Stress is also known to trigger IBS symptoms.
Although there is no cure for IBS some treatments are known to help including changes to diet, reducing stress, exercise and medication.
Research conducted at The University Hospital of South Manchester in Wythenshawe has shown that hypnosis is an effective treatment for reducing the symptoms of IBS and increasing quality of life in patients.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends hypnotherapy as a treatment for IBS in those whose symptoms have not improved after 12 months on medication.
