As early as the 1980's evidence was published showing the benefits of Hypnotherapy when treating IBS. In an article published by the BBC back in 2010, Dr Roland Valori, the then editor of Frontline Gastroenterology, said of the first 100 of his patients treated using hypnotherapy, symptoms improved significantly for 9 in 10. He also said after an audit 4 in 10 had seen the condtion removed altogether.
As a therapist I recognise the connection between the mind and the body. When we become anxious or stressed chemicals can be flooded into the stomach during our Fight, Flight, Freeze reaction to the percieved danger. For those suffering from IBS this can lead to a catch 22 situation.
I often find an imbalance has occured within the mind/body connection and it has developed into an unwanted symptom. Through the use of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy I have been able to help a number of clients move forwards and get their lives back.
