Hypnosis and IBS: How can it help?
The lower GI tract (gastrointestinal tract) is affected by IBS, including the small intestine, large intestine, and colon.
Individuals with IBS may suffer from chronic diarrhea, constipation, or both.
In order to better understand irritable bowel syndrome, the awareness of our minds has become more critical. Symptoms can be influenced greatly by factors such as the way a person copes with stress, how they behave, and how they live.
Symptoms common to both men and women include the following:
- Concomitant abdominal pain, cramping or bloating associated with constipation
- It may appear that your bowel movements are changing
- The frequency with which you pass your bowels has changed
Would you believe that you may have Irritable Bowel Syndrome if your doctor told you that you may have it or have you been told that it may be the case?
What are your opinions about the fact that Hypnosis can be used as a tool to help you control your digestive system?
There exists a “brain-gut connection”. If you experience pain as normal then it does not mean that your brain is misfiring, but that there is a very good possibility that your brain is misfiring.
As a result of it being hypnotized, the central nervous system and its nerve endings may be influenced, thereby reducing sensitivity in the abdomen. Since I am a Certified Hypnotherapist, one of the things I specialize in is the process of helping others to deal with these complex connections and associations, like the interactions between the nervous system and the digestive tract.
