Hypnosis for irritable bowel syndrome
I received a phone call from Christine in Rancho Mirage, CA who asked about hypnosis for irritable bowel syndrome.
Christine explained that she has suffered with IBS for at least the last 20 years and maybe her whole life. It was 20 years ago that she was diagnosed as having IBS.
She is now 48 and her symptoms have ebbed and flowed throughout her life. When I asked her if she could remember not have irritable bowel syndrome she paused for a moment and then said, “no”.
About 6 weeks ago her symptoms became worse. She frequently cancels activities and dinners out with family and friends because she’s afraid to get too far from the bathroom.
Her doctor at Eisenhower Medical Center recommend hypnosis and gave her my phone number. She also said that she had been told in the past by doctors that her symptoms were “all in her head.”
Christine asked if hypnosis for irritable bowel syndrome could help her and asked if I had previously helped other clients with IBS hypnosis.
Helping people with IBS
I assured Christine that while IBS does have mental and emotional components, her symptoms were very real. I shared with her that I have been helping people with IBS since 1997.
I cited two studies, a recent one that reports that IBS can be controlled better through mental training than with mainstream drugs. And, an older study that demonstrates that the beneficial effects of hypnotherapy appear to last at least five years.
I teach my clients the self-hypnosis techniques that will allow them to use the beneficial effects of hypnotherapy throughout their life – not just five years.
These are just two of the many studies that show that hypnosis is a viable therapeutic option for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.
I reminded Christine that her body was created to be healthy and it was created to heal. So yes, I think that hypnosis for IBS can help.
I will be seeing Christine for her first session in my Palm Desert Hypnosis office soon.
