Has I.B.S. got a hold on you?
Are you one of the estimated 10-20% of the population that has Irritable Bowel Syndrome (I.B.S., or “spastic colon”)?
I.B.S. affects up to 35 million people in the United States alone.Â If you are suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and feel like you’ve tried everything but nothing works, I have some very good news.
Over 15 years of solid scientific research has demonstrated Hypnotherapy to be an effective, safe and inexpensive choice for alleviating the symptoms of IBS, including pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea, bloating and nausea. In 1958, Hypnotherapy was approved by the American Medical Association as a valid medical treatment. Indeed, Hypnotherapy can be a valuable tool when dealing with a wide range of medical issues, according to studies from the American Medical Association, American Psychiatric Association and the British Medical Association.
One great benefit of Hypnotherapy is its proven ability to reduce the effects of stress and stress plays a huge role in I.B.S. You may have heard of the mind/body connection. Your state of mind can directly impact your overall physical wellbeing, even when you’re in good health. If you’re battling IBS, your immune system may actually be undermined by the stress, anxiety, depression and tension that come from dealing with the effects your illness.
Though there is proven evidence that Hypnotherapy can be a key to lasting health and wellness, there can be uncertainty about exactly how and why these treatments work. This is the case with many alternative therapies. Scientists believe that Hypnotherapy affects the body’s regulation of involuntary reactions that are normally beyond a person’s control, by acting upon the unconscious. Hypnotherapy puts these autonomic responses under the patient’s power. And it’s wonderful to note that this Hypnotherapy treatment is suitable for people of all ages, and there are no risks or side effects.
When searching for answers to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, please keep these facts in mind:
• I.B.S. is almost uniquely suited to treatment by Hypnotherapy because stress-related attacks can be significantly reduced.
• One of the most impressive aspects of Hypnotherapy, which is extremely beneficial to IBS sufferers, is its well-documented ability to relieve pain of virtually all degrees and types.
• Because I.B.S. is a syndrome and not a disease, if you can relieve and prevent the symptoms, you have effectively cured yourself of the disorder. The underlying dysfunction may still be present, but if you suffer no noticeable effects from it, you will be living a life free of I.B.S. This outcome is most certainly a possibility with Hypnotherapy treatments.
Let Hypnotherapy be your key to optimum health and wellness!
