What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a source of chronic pain, fatigue, and other discomforting symptoms and it has significant negative effects on the quality of your life. About 1 in 5 Australians suffers from IBS at some time in their lives, but women are more likely to get IBS and develop more serious symptoms.
The exact cause of IBS is unknown. The most common theory is that IBS is a disorder of the interaction between the brain and the gastrointestinal tract, although there may also be abnormalities in the gut flora or the immune system. However, the stress and anxiety involved in the distressing symptoms and discomfort of IBS adds to the severity of the symptoms and the debilitating aspect of the condition.
How Does Hypnosis Help with IBS?
Stress management is a crucially important component of managing IBS, and hypnotherapy is a powerful tool for relieving and managing stress.
By using hypnotherapy to access the power of the subconscious mind, new patterns of emotional and physical response can be created. Like planting seeds in your emotional subconscious landscape that will blossom into the natural, healthy rhythms of the body that are yours to re-own.
The body has it’s own wisdom and has a natural ability to regenerate, recalibrate and heal when optimum conditions are present. Hypnotherapy will help you put in place those things that are necessary and right for you in order to support your body to remember, and do what it knows how to do naturally.
