Hypnotherapy for IBS
Many people worry about how often and even what time of day they should have a bowel movement. However, medical studies have shown there is no correct way for our guts to function normally, which is why it is difficult to illustrate what should be considered regular or average.
Bowel movements may be affected by diet, exercise, stress levels, particular moods or physical environment. But if you are aware or worried by how often you experience a bowel movement, or if you are experiencing any long term bowel discomfort, then you could be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
With Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) the digestive system is particularly sensitive; this sensitivity can be to particular food groups such as dairy or emotional stress.
Most of the time it is only a minor inconvenience or occasional nuisance, but sometimes the condition can seriously affect a person’s quality of life at which point you may feel the necessity to address the problem.
It can develop at any time during an individual’s life, but it is usually common for the symptoms to develop between the ages of 15-40 as the gut develops and adapts to new foods. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common disorders of the gut because it includes a vast array of possible symptoms, many of which occur at opposite ends of the spectrum. These consist of:
- Periods of diarrhoea or constipation
- Abdominal pain
- Spasms of the gut
- General discomfort after eating
- Excessive or trapped gas
There is currently no cure for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); doctors often find it difficult to gauge the cause of the patient’s problem. Furthermore, Irritable Bowel Syndrome is often caused or made worse by psychological factors, such as stress, depression, or anxiety. A stressful event such as a serious virus, bowel surgery, or difficult period at work or home, can all trigger IBS symptoms to develop.
The gut often reacts to stressful situations, making the individual nauseous or feeling as though they have to go to the toilet with some urgency. This natural mind-gut connection found in all humans is often exaggerated in those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and may cause them additional stress, exacerbating the problem further.
Even though it is a medical condition, hypnosis can make a significant improvement to an individual’s experience, relieving uncomfortable symptoms. Seeing an Advanced Hypnosis London hypnotherapist means you can receive effective and comfortable treatment for your IBS, breaking the upsetting cycle of emotional tension and bowel discomfort.
By addressing the subconscious cause of your symptoms, such as stress or anxiety, hypnotherapy is able to make powerful changes to the psychological connection between your mind and your gut, helping you to develop a more natural and comfortable digestive routine.
