Gastrointestinal Problems and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
We all carry a certain amount of stress and for some of us it could manifest as a headache, or a skin rash but many of us internalise our worries and find that we cannot digest or process our food properly.
Hypnosis has proved to be particularly beneficial for gastrointestinal problems, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, colitis and Crohn’s Disease. Through hypnosis the gastric acid secretion can be both stimulated and inhibited according to the condition.
In a controlled study of ulcer patients with a one year follow up it was found that all the patients, treated with medication until the ulcer healed, had relapsed. Of those treated by hypnotherapy, it was found that only 53% had recurring problems.
It is known that gut problems are usually caused by stress, poor eating habits in terms of time and quality, and food intolerance. Through hypnosis you can learn to stay calm on the inside, by being more relaxed and in control of your daily life and your eating habits and patterns.
