IBS treatment and Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy has been successful in the treatment of IBS and has once again attracted the spotlight in the Media.
ABC 7:30 Report interviewed an IBS sufferer as well as Professor Peter Gibson, Gastroenterologist and a recognised expert in IBS. Professor Gibson and his team at Monash University have dedicated many years to their ongoing research into IBS.
Australian Research into Hypnosis for treating IBS
A research team at Monash University carried out a study which compared the impact of gut-related hypnotherapy with that of the low-FODMAP diet.
The results were dramatic.
The low-FODMAP diet is now considered the gold standard with regard to dietary therapy for IBS sufferers. And they can now show, that hypnotherapy is just as beneficial as the low-FODMAP diet.
But researchers found that most people actually don’t have to change their diet when they undergo the gut focused hypnosis.
Overseas research for gut directed hypnotherapy
The Monash University study isn’t the first time it was proven that hypnotherapy has lasting benefits on easing IBS symptoms.
Many such studies have already been carried out in various Universities overseas.
Scientists in Sweden have also found Hypnotherapy to be an effective treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. A study involving 346 patients, concluded that Hypnotherapy is a valid alternative treatment to ease the symptoms of IBS.
What’s even more interesting, the Researchers found that hypnotherapy not only alleviates the discomfort of IBS, but that the changes remain long-term.
The treatment of gut directed Hypnotherapy helps you to control your IBS symptoms with deep relaxation and hypnotic suggestions. Patients learn to use these suggested IBS hypnotic techniques to help them in their busy everyday lives.
