IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is a disorder that can cause pain and discomfort, usually in the tummy. For those who have irritable bowel, hypnotherapy helps IBS by helping you to manage the effects of this particular affliction.

IBS can contribute towards various medical issues and ailments in addition to being known to bring on depressive disorders in some sufferers. Even though it is a very common condition it is still very much a serious problem for all those struggling with it daily.

The cause of irritable bowel is generally unidentified. While various studies have proposed that people with IBS might have an increased level of sensitivity in the stomach and intestines. Stress and anxiousness can exacerbate irritable bowel syndrome symptoms; it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that they can even cause the symptoms to begin with. Regretfully the worry of IBS symptoms could cause a cycle of pain causing panic attacks that can cause more pain etc. Now and then a sufferer will experience high levels of stress over the issue itself and the chance it could go downhill. Typically the worry and expectation may actually result in a number of the problems. Consequently, if worry results in the pain and we get worried about these pains, those pains might happen because of that initial worry.

Lyta Humphris from Hypnosis Devon is well qualified and has many years of past experience in treating irritable bowel using hypnotherapy under their belt.
Lyta Humphris a trained specialist hypnotherapist specialising in irritable bowel syndrome, said,
I have been been using hypnotherapy to help IBS in my practice based in Plymouth, Devon for 20 years, and have helped many people with IBS. It often happens that people with IBS get so worried that they will not find a toilet in time, so they can hardly get out. So generally most IBS sufferers actually have two problems – anxiety and IBS. I find hypnotherapy helps IBS and the anxiety and I get good results.
In fact The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recognised hypnotherapy as a possible treatment for IBS in those who haven’t responded to other treatments.
