Do you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Symptoms include:

  • Painful abdominal cramps
  • Bloating and gas
  • Diarrhoea, constipation (or both)
  • Food intolerance
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Anxiety and depression.

IBS can lead to anxiety and stress, shame and embarrassment, social withdrawal, isolation and depression. It can disrupt your entire life.

Though around 1 in 5 Australians suffer from IBS, doctors still don’t know what causes it. Environmental factors can trigger episodes, for example, diet, emotional stress, disruptions due to changes in routine (such as travel, changing jobs, or moving house). IBS can be constipation-predominant, diarrhoea-predominant or a combination of both.

While there is no cure for IBS, treatment involves working with your specific triggers. This may include making dietary changes, for example following a low FODMAPs diet or by identifying and eliminating certain trigger foods, incorporating gentle exercise into your routine, and stress management using therapies such as CBT and hypnosis, recognising the link between the gut and the brain (known as the gut-brain axis).

Gut-directed hypnotherapy for Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

How hypnotherapy can help

Research has shown that gut-directed hypnotherapy can help you when dealing with flare-ups and bowel-related symptoms. Hypnotherapy helps soothe the gut’s reactions to strong emotions and stressors that can trigger the symptoms of IBS.

If you suspect you have IBS you should consult your doctor to rule out any other underlying causes for your symptoms. Once diagnosed, know you don’t have to suffer alone. Help is available.

Our IBS program is designed to get you back in control of your body, to get your gut functioning and alleviate symptoms so you can live your life again.
