Gastric issues can be very difficult to cope with. It's not just the physical symptoms that cause a problem, but also the knock on effect in terms of change in lifestyle, emotional impact, stress and loss of confidence.
With any physical symptom or medical problem that are many complementary ways in which you might help to alleviate both the symptom itself and its knock on effect. IBS is no different in this respect. It could even be said that complementary treatments can sometimes be more effective than more traditional medicinal treatments.
Hypnosis has been proven to be very effective in controlling and managing IBS. In many cases it has offered a long-term cure. Hypnosis is easy to use, cost effective and natural. It also has no nasty side effects. I would therefore encourage anyone who suffers from IBS to give it a go.
Many people are unfortunately wary or dubious about hypnosis and this is a great shame. Hypnosis is real and it does work. The only way in which to find out, of course, is to try it for yourself. All I would advise is please glean as much information about hypnosis as you can so that you can make your own informed choice to use it, and simply keep an open mind.
Mind works on body and body works on mind in a constant exchange of information and experience. Any physical symptom has a psychological and emotional impact and vice versa. It can sometimes be difficult to distinguish between the two or even to trace the root cause of a symptom. This is why it is wise to approach any treatment plan from a dual perspective, incorporating both physical and psychological elements.
Hypnosis is a particularly useful complementary tool to assist in any treatment plan for reasons that I mentioned before; it is natural, easy to use and has no nasty side effects. Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and it allows access to your subconscious mind.
Suggestions can be used to sooth your mind and your body. Visualization can be employed to encourage a return to natural bowel functioning. Suggestions can also be targeted to assist in stress relief and also related areas of emotional impact. Hypnosis is very versatile as it can assist in any area that has a psychological impact, which is pretty much everything.
Medical research supports the use of hypnosis for successful treatment of IBS. More recent research is also supporting its use for management of more serious bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis.
The UK newspapers have recently reported that the footballer, Darren Fletcher, has turned to hypnosis as a complementary treatment of this chronic bowel disease. Hopefully, the fact that someone with a high profile has turned to hypnosis will alert more people to its applications and validity.
I have noticed a growing number of clinical trials taking place that are targeting the use of hypnosis as a treatment in various medical problems, many of them bowel related, such as IBS, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and ulcerative colitis. If you are seeking treatment for such issues, or know somebody who is, then hypnosis is definitely worth considering.
