Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, is a digestive condition that causes a variety of symptoms, such as diarrhea, bloating/gas, constipation and abdominal cramps. These symptoms often cause pain and discomfort for those suffering with it. IBS is more common among people in their late 20’s, particularly women, and those with a history of mental disorders. Not all symptoms are GastroIntestinal-related; non-GI symptoms are common as well and include:
The exact cause is not known, but specialists theorize it may be in the way the brain communicates with the intestinal tract, causing it to move too slow or too fast. Studies have shown a correlation between IBS and anxiety, in which one will often aggravate the other, though they are not known to be direct causes. Due to lack of knowledge in this area, prevention methods are also unknown. However, general upkeep of exercise and a good diet are seen as one way to minimize the symptoms experienced during an episode.
According to WebMD, since anxiety and psychological illnesses are so common among IBS patients, treatments involving behavioral therapy are viewed as very helpful in reducing symptoms. Hypnotherapy was listed among them as a useful tool for coping with IBS and is a safe, drugless form of therapy.
Self-hypnosis has been shown to have remarkable effectiveness with many conditions, even when other treatments may fail. It is a particularly successful method when the source of a problem is emotional or tension-related, however deep-rooted it may be. Self-suggestion is a process which strikes at the core of a problem, rather than simply masking the symptoms, making it especially helpful for complaints with no known cause, such as IBS.
The very term “Hypnosis” is a direct reference to the ancient Greek “Hypnos”, meaning sleep, and indicates the relaxed, sleep-like, state that is necessary for suggestion to take effect. However, many often have trouble reaching this deeper level of consciousness on their own and require the assistance of a skilled hypnotherapist to ease them into, and out of, a hypnotic state.
