for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
If you're looking for really
successful help for I.B.S. then Hypnotherapy could offer you
the solution you're looking for.
Hypnotherapy, using tried and tested
methods, is widely recognised as a highly effective treatment for
I.B.S. It has been used successfully for many years and Hypnotherapy
is often successful where other treatments have failed.
I.B.S., or irritable bowel syndrome,
can be a distressing and sometimes very debilitating condition. Many
sufferers find I.B.S. very restricting and it can certainly
dramatically interfere with the quality of our everyday lives and
If you are a sufferer yourself, or you
are the partner or parent of an I.B.S. sufferer, then you will know
only too well the difficulties that the condition can cause.
Symptoms of I.B.S
Irritable bowel syndrome is a
functional disorder of the gut. This means that there is an
abnormality in the function of the gut rather than its structure.
I.B.S. is one of the most common problems of the digestive system
with something like 1 in 6 people suffering from it at some time in
I.B.S. tends to start in younger
people, most commonly between the ages of 15 and 40. Women tend to
be more frequently affected than men. The symptoms often include:
* Abdominal pain, which is often
spasmodic in nature
* Rumbling tummy and/or excessive
* Extreme feelings of needing to go
to the toilet urgently
Causes of Irritable
The exact causes of I.B.S. are unclear
and diagnosis can sometimes be extremely difficult. However over
activity in the nerves and muscles of the gut are believed to be a
factor. Again it is not entirely clear exactly why the over activity
occurs but research suggests that
Stress may well be a
significant factor and it is often diagnosed as being responsible
Treatment for Irritable
The treatment for I.B.S. depends a lot
on the cause. Where Stress is known, or suspected, to be the root
cause, as is the case in a substantial number of cases, then
therapies such as
and N.L.P. offer very effective and successful help.
Other causes for I.B.S. may be diet or
lifestyle related and therefore it may be necessary to find out what
foods you are intolerant to and then reducing or eliminating those
foods from your diet.
A food and lifestyle diary, taken over
a period of a least 4 weeks, may be a good idea so that you can
check your exercise, recreation and your everyday food types and
intakes. This gives you the opportunity of seeing if you can make
any beneficial changes in those areas.
