Brain, Gut and IBS

So what does your brain and your gut have to do with IBS? As it turns out, a lot. Medical research has shown that your thoughts and emotions affect your digestive tract. Science also shows that what you eat affects your thoughts and emotions.

Research at UCLA, Harvard and other research centers shows that mindfulness based stress reduction (MSRB) techniques such as hypnosis, meditation and yoga can improve digestive health.

For almost 20 years, I have been supporting people with hypnosis for IBS. As a Health Care Support Hypnotherapist I have witnessed how hypnosis really gets at the underlying causes of IBS in ways that pills simply cannot.

The evidence is overwhelming that Hypnotherapy produces dramatic results in improvement of symptoms for over 80% of IBS sufferers.

If you are suffering with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, medical hypnosis can help you. You can learn more about hypnosis for IBS by visiting me in my Seattle Hypnosis office, Bainbridge Hypnosis office or online from your home or office.

The gut-brain connection

The brain has a direct effect on the stomach. For example, the very thought of eating can release the stomach’s juices before food gets there. This connection goes both ways. A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That’s because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected.

This is especially true in cases where a person experiences gastrointestinal upset with no obvious physical cause. For such functional GI disorders, it is difficult to try to heal a distressed gut without considering the role of stress and emotion. Read The gut-brain connection
