IBS Relief – Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy at Orlando Hypnosis Clinic
What can you do about IBS? Clinical hyypnosis and hypnotherapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in a number of clinical studies. Are you someone who has had a work-up for Irritable Bowel Syndrome or other gastric issues and the physicians haven’t found anything physical to treat? You’re not alone. Make an appointment for a free consultation and learn more about how hypnosis or yhpnotherapy could help you find relief from IBS.
Research has found that hypnotherapy may help improve the primary symptoms of IBS. It may also help relieve other symptoms suffered by many people with IBS such as:
For example, because there aren’t many treatments for IBS, hypnotherapy has become “the front-line therapy”. Experts theorize that hypnotherapy works for many gastrointestinal disorders because they are often affected by a faulty connection between the brain and the gut, or digestive tract. The gut and brain are in constant communication. When something disrupts that communication, the brain misinterprets normal signals, which can cause the body to become hypersensitive to stimuli detected by nerves in the gut, causing pain. Experts believe hypnosis for IBS shifts the brain’s attention away from those stimuli by providing healthy suggestions about what’s going on in the gut.
Learning effective self-hypnosis skills can help most of our clients to significantly improve their IBS symptoms and can help with indirect effects of IBS problems such as overall well-being, quality of life, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, and bloating.
IBS and the Stimulus-What Can You Expect from Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy for IBS
“It doesn’t get rid of the stimulus. Your GI tract is still moving. It’s just changing the threshold of perception so you’re not paying attention or feeling it with the same intensity,” says John Pandolfino, chief of gastroenterology and hepatology at Northwestern, which started offering hypnotherapy in 2006 and has plans to expand to two regional hospitals
Other gastric issues such that are stress triggered or related can often be easily relieved through a similar process only focusing on the cause of the stress, anxiety, etc. Give Orlando Hypnosis Clinic a call and request a free consultation to see if we can help relieve your day to day difficulties.

Hypnotherapy Can Be Used to Break Unwanted Patterns
Re-educate your mind to stop worrying about the next IBS attack.
Learn new relaxation techniques to help your mind and body to slow down and de-stress. IBS and stress are a painful combination.
Hypnotherapy appears to offer symptomatic, psychological, and physiological benefit. Steer your mind away from the pain gradually.
In certain instances, it may be necessary to identify and resolve events, current or past, that are subconsciously affecting IBS symptoms
Do the effects of hypnotherapy last once a course of treatment has been completed? Research on the long-term follow up of patients who have benefited shows that after a period of between 1 and 5 years, most remain well with many requiring no further medication at all.
