NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) and the BMA recommend hypnotherapy to alleviate IBS symptoms. Some NHS departments are now set up just for Hypnosis for IBS.
It is a uniquely comfortable form of treatment; relaxing, easy and generally enjoyable.
It utilizes the healing power of the person’s own mind and is generally without negative side effects.
The treatment sometimes results in improvement in other problems such as migraine or tension headaches, along with the improvement in IBS symptoms.
The beneficial effects of the treatment last long after the end of the course of treatment. According to research, individuals who improve from Hypnosis IBS can generally look forward to years of reduced uncomfortable bowel symptoms.
