What is known about IBS?

Hypnotherapy for IBS Dublin

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) otherwise known as spastic colon is a bowel disorder that causes chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating and a change in bowel habits. It is considered a diagnosis of exclusion with an estimated that 20% of the adult population of Ireland suffer from IBS. While the exact cause remains unknown, many researchers believe IBS is due to changes in nerves that control sensations or muscle contractions in the bowel. It is also thought the central nervous system may affect the colon.
Women are two to three times more likely than men to have IBS with some theories suggesting hormonal changes also play a role. Triggers for IBS can range from gas or pressure on your intestines to certain foods, medications or emotions. Consumption of chocolate, milk and alcohol result in constipation or diarrhea for some individuals.
Although IBS is a chronic non-life threatening condition, it is widely accepted to have a serious affect on our emotional, social and physical well-being. Digestion is one of the unconscious actions our bodies carry out every day. This digestive function is affected by our emotional state and significantly, IBS is often connected with anxiety and stress.

How can hypnotherapy help my IBS?
IBS is a gut-level reaction to stress so reducing the stress alleviates the symptoms. Therefore addressing the source of physical or emotional triggers (that our disturb bowel function), will be highly effective in eradicating IBS. Brain body reactions explain how IBS symptoms such as diarrhoea and constipation can be directly related to fears, anger and depression. Releasing emotions we may not even be aware we harboured, yields amazing results for our clients. Once free from these worries, hypnotherapy allows you to regain control of your life!
So is there any evidence to verify the success of hypnotherapy in treating IBS?
YES!!! Extensive medical research and scientific studies have consistently proven hypnotherapy’s success in treating IBS. This impact is clearly demonstrated in an “Overview of Published Research To Date on Hypnosis for IBS” by Olafur S. Palsson, Psy.D.

More and more GPs now recommend hypnotherapy as a treatment for IBS.

How many sessions will I require?
No two people report the same combinations or severity of symptoms. Generally though our treatments will involve anywhere between 2-4 sessions with almost all clients reporting a vast improvement in their condition after just one visit!
Why suffer any longer with pain, fatigue and discomfort?
