Hypnotherapy for IBS Treatment
IBS, also known as spastic colon, is a disturbance of the colon where patients experience symptoms of cramping abdominal pain, bloating, frequent flatulence, constipation, diarrhea, or even alternating constipation and diarrhea. Between 15% to 20% of the population of affected by IBS. Although using hypnosis to treat IBS is efficacious, it’s necessary that a proper diagnosis be made by one’s doctor or gastroenterologist, since its symptoms can mimic symptoms of many life threatening illnesses. Conventional medical treatment, and dietary changes have shown to be beneficial with about 25% of patients.
Since 1984, worldwide studies have shown the long-term alleviation of IBS symptoms when hypnosis is used with medical treatment. The effectiveness of treatment then climbs toward 80%. Typically, the more “traditional” treatment has been fiber therapy, antispasmodic medications and antidepressants. Adding fiber to the diet through bulking type laxatives and a high fiber diet is a frequent strategy. Antispasmodic medications can reduce spasms in the gut and antidepressants can reduce the sensitivity of the gut to pain. According to the American College of Gastroenterology, drug therapies only have a 25% success rate.
Fortunately, we offer a non-intrusive, effective and natural way that has been utilized to treat sufferers of IBS. Research from the Center for Functional G.I. and Mobility Disorders, affiliated with the University of North Carolina, School of Medicine has strong and overwhelming evidence supporting the fact that 80% to 90% of IBS symptoms can be diminished or eliminated with hypnotherapy. Ongoing research from this center continues with the help of the NIH (National Institute of Health).
Using hypnosis for IBS treatment can help reprogram your mind and create behavioral change, and reprogram the way you react to stressors and inspire a healthier life.
Our IBS hypnosis relief program consists of targeted suggestions and regression. At the end of your first hypnotherapy for IBS session, a “trigger” word is given to your subconscious mind, which will allow your to re-enter this calm state immediately whenever you encounter a stressful or moment. In each hypnosis for IBS session, hypnotic suggestions are introduced to promote inner healing. Depending on whether you suffer from diarrhea or constipation, a metronome representing your digestive system can be imagined. During hypnosis, the you can “control” the beat of this metronome by either speeding it up for constipation or slowing it down for diarrhea. Although you may not realize it, you’ll be able to retrain your process of digestion. Through harnessing your subconscious mind, you’ll have the power to promote accelerated change and wellness.
During your hypnosis for IBS session, you can identify any negative event from your past that has been destructive to your digestion. Your Rockland hypnotist can then re-frame the way your subconscious mind perceives the past event, allowing your current IBS symptoms to be released. Essentially your Rockland hypnotist will teach your subconscious mind that those negative past experiences no longer need to negatively impact you.
