Medical Hypnosis for IBS
While I was researching current studies for the efficacy of hypnosis for cancer, I discovered this research on the Efficacy, Safety and Applications of Medical Hypnosis for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
I very clearly remember my first client 19 years ago who was suffering with IBS. At the time, I didn’t know a lot about irritable bowel syndrome or medical hypnosis. I taught him the mindfulness hypnosis techniques that I knew and he reported immediate relief.
I began to study hypnosis for IBS and he became symptom free. His medical doctor was so pleased that he has referred many of his patients over the years and spread the word about medical hypnosis for IBS among his colleagues.
“Hypnosis should be the treatment of choice for all severe cases of IBS.”

Life without IBS
Many people have suffered with IBS for years. People often tell me that can’t remember not having digestive discomfort. But, it is possible for you to change that and restore your body to digestive health.
One woman recently wrote, “I left the first session feeling the most relaxed and optimistic that I have been in years. I admit though, I was disappointed when I continued having cramping, bloating and diarrhea in the following days. But, I continued with our sessions for which I am grateful.
It’s now been two weeks since the third session, I have had no diarrhea and almost no digestive discomfort. I am so looking forward to our session tomorrow and I now believe that I will live my life free of the worry and embarrassment of IBS. Thank you!”

Efficacy, Safety and Applications of Medical Hypnosis for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Medical hypnosis is a safe and effective complementary technique for use in medical procedures and in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. Waking suggestions can be a component of effective doctor-patient communication in routine clinical situations.
The evidence is overwhelming that IBS symptoms do respond to hypnosis.
Hypnosis for IBS
The evidence is overwhelming that Hypnotherapy produces dramatic results in improvement of symptoms for over 80% of IBS sufferers.
Gut-directed hypnotherapy is a clearly described technique. Its potential mechanisms of action on the brain-gut axis are multiple with evidence spanning psychological effects through to physiological gastrointestinal modifications. Six of seven randomized IBS studies reported a significant reduction (all P < 0.05) in overall gastrointestinal symptoms following treatment usually compared to supportive therapy only. Efficacy was maintained long-term in four of five studies. A therapeutic effect was also observed in the maintenance of clinical remission in patients with ulcerative colitis.
