In this article, we will go over the advantages of hypnosis for IBS and studies that have shown superior results in IBS patients who had undergone professional gut directed hypnosis – St. Petersburg Hypnosis Center LLC invites you to keep reading!


Hypnosis For Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Although there is no one shot cure for IBS yet, there are plenty of treatment options for it out there, and hypnosis is one of the most effective! Many studies have proven that hypnosis for IBS is extremely effective in alleviating IBS symptoms.

But perhaps the single most important thing about hypnosis, in contrast to other treatments, is that it has no side effects at all!

IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome as it is often known, is a specific condition of our digestive system and includes symptoms such as feeling bloated, constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.

However, you need to see a medical professional before starting hypnosis to verify that your symptoms are a consequence of IBS and not some other condition with pretty much similar symptoms.

IBS affects roughly 10 to 15 percent of people at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, its exact causes are still unknown, but what we know is that IBS can be exacerbated or triggered by exposure to a long period of stress.

The fact that it is hard to predict when you will experience IBS, and the pain and the discomfort of IBS can greatly affect the quality of your life. The vast majority of people find IBS distressing and upsetting condition to deal with.

Hypnosis Can Alleviate IBS in Several Ways

Let’s take a look at the helping and stress reduction powers of hypnosis by taking a peek at some of the scientific studies.

A study conducted at the University of Manchester in the UK in 2001 found that 71% of those who underwent 12 hypnosis sessions because of IBS, 5 years later, reported that they are experiencing lasting improvements when it comes to their condition.

Numerous studies have shown that hypnosis for IBS can significantly reduce irritable bowel syndrome symptoms by more than 70% in patients, while most of the conventional treatments for IBS are not always that successful.

SIBO is the Leading Cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

SIBO is a small intestinal bacterial overgrowth that causes methane, hydrogen, or hydrogen sulfide gas production.

These gases are not only causing the main symptoms of IBS but can also wreak havoc on the intestinal wall. IBS can have numerous causes – from stress over lack of hydrochloric acid or digestive enzymes to dysbiosis of the large intestine and food sensitivities.

Each and every one of these can cause digestive complaints that are hard to distinguish.

How Does Gut Directed Hypnosis for SIBO Work?

Gastrointestinal disorders are very complex. Even more, the causes are different for every single patient. But what we do know is that sensitive nerve endings and visceral hypersensitivity in the gut cause those people with GI conditions to experience more motility problems because they feel more pain.

Luckily, gut directed hypnosis solves this “miscommunication” between the gut and brain. Wondering what it looks like?

Gut directed hypnosis is a provoked mental state guided by a highly trained Hypnotist to help you get in a focused state of awareness while feeling completely relaxed.

The technique utilizes imagery, suggestion, and relaxation to produce maximal therapeutic effects. These suggestions’ purpose is to calm and relax an individual’s digestive tract and reduce discomfort in their body.

Benefits of Reducing Anxiousness: Alleviate the Symptoms of IBS and SIBO

First and foremost – regular deep relaxation during hypnosis sessions counteracts the stress response, which is the foundation for everything else. When people are under stress, regardless of the reason (e.g., certain pressures regarding your job or whatever), the brain switches to a different mode (fight or flight mode) because it perceives that there is some threat to your safety.

Once this happens, human adrenal glands start releasing lots of adrenaline that triggers certain changes in our body so it can respond (accelerated heart rate, quicker breathing, and so on and so forth). It’s preparing you up for the upcoming action.

And, on the other hand, the brain also switches off other non essential responses to survival for a while, such as digestion, immune system, and sex drive, because there’s no need for them when you are threatened.

There is nothing wrong with these in a short term situation. But… If you feel stressed day after day for months, your adrenal glands will be sidelining your system, including digestion.

However, with hypnosis for SIBO and deep relaxation, you can counteract all this. Getting rid of these symptoms helps your immune system work as it’s supposed to – it gets the blood and oxygen it needs to work better.

Deep relaxation is the best antidote to everyday stress. Hypnosis is a scientifically backed way to calm down inflammatory conditions of all kinds, accelerate healing, and manage pain – It has been used for many years!

With hypnosis and visualization, you can learn how to directly influence your own body and remove the discomfort of IBS.
