Gut Directed Hypnotherapy (GDH) an effective solution
The good news is there is – Gut Directed Hypnotherapy.
Clinical trials from around the world show using hypnosis for the treatment of IBS substantially improves all the central symptoms of IBS in up to 70-80 percent of treated patients and that the benefit often lasts for years after treatment. And what’s even more remarkable, GDH has been found to help IBS sufferers whose symptoms have failed to improve from regular medical treatment.
A key additional benefit of GDH is that it has no uncomfortable side effects, plus it often enhances the psychological well-being and quality of life of the individual.
What makes GDH so effective?
The mind and body operate as one system and GDH uses the mind to help the function and health of the body. Mental imagery and hypnotic suggestions are used to bring about overall relaxation of the bowels and the whole body, lessened sensitivity to gut discomfort, and increased mental control over bowel symptoms. Suggestions are given to help adopt more effective ways to handle life situations that aggravate your bowel problems.
IBS is a very stressful disorder to live with, and stress is one of the major triggers that can trigger or exacerbate IBS symptoms. This creates a vicious circle. GDH provides tools for combating stress, reducing the anxiety response and thus calming the gastrointestinal system.
