Overcoming IBS Through Hypnotherapy

Gut directed Hypnotherapy

Stomach Pain, Discomfort, bloating, bathroom issues – all symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). This challenging and often embarrassing condition can intrude on a person’s life, sometimes taking over how they go about their daily routine. IBS can be complicated to treat, and many people are forced to live in constant fear of when IBS might strike. Recently, Hypnotherapy has been found to be an innovative treatment for this abdominal ailment. With one in five Australians at some time experiencing the unpleasant effects of IBS, many of them are plagued by this manageable condition on a daily basis. Here, we look at how Hypnotherapy can put IBS sufferers on the road to a healthy gut.

IBS is a gastrointestinal disorder, and we don’t really know the precise cause of the condition. While some people might be struck down at random, others experience bouts of IBS due to eating certain foods or experiencing ‘triggers’ such as stress. Symptoms may include mild to severe abdominal cramps, bloating and sudden diarrhoea, among others. Irregular bowel movements and constipation are other indications that point to an irritable bowel. The good news is that many of the things that lead to IBS are behaviour related, and certain treatments like Hypnotherapy are ideal for managing this uncomfortable problem.

It’s Not Just the Food

Most people do not fully recognise how IBS affects them, with some living with the condition throughout their lives and others developing the disorder as they get older. While science works to understand the exact causes of IBS, those suffering from the syndrome will tell you that certain foods are often the primary cause. In contrast, others point to stress factors as the trigger that upsets the gastrointestinal system.

As our understanding of the mind improves, many physical disorders and conditions have been directly linked to the brain, dispelling age-old myths and inaccurate assumptions. IBS has only recently been studied closely enough for doctors to understand that the condition is triggered by more than simply eating foods that upset the gut – the mind plays a significant role as well.

So Many Treatments

Treating IBS with conventional methods like medications and diet control have yielded limited results. While some patients report early initial improvement, they often still find themselves struggling to manage their irritated bowel over the longer term. While tucking into a spicy bowl of curry is almost sure to trigger a flare-up, often sufferers who carefully watch what they eat find themselves still facing the Painful symptoms regularly.

A Different Option

Hypnotherapy is not a cure for IBS. But it is a proven gut-directed therapy that helps to alleviate the symptoms of the syndrome. Gut-directed Hypnotherapy works on the body’s nervous system. It helps to reduce the sensitivity of the nerves in the gut, teaching the brain to differentiate between stomach Pain and normal gut sensations. Surveys and studies have shown that more than half of IBS suffers who receive Hypnotherapy treatment see a marked improvement in the severity of the symptoms, clinical studies have shown over 70% see some improvement.

Adopting a holistic approach like Hypnotherapy to treating the syndrome is showing greater and greater success, and this, coupled with other conventional treatments, can give welcome relief to people who are hoping to lead a normal life.

A Positive Mind Equals a Positive Gut

Hypnotherapy is proven in helping people overcome distressing psychological issues in a comfortable, controlled environment. During treatment, a therapist will assist their client in entering a psychological state that helps the mind open up to positive suggestion and relaxation techniques. Through these methods, therapists work with the client in gaining control of the unconscious psychological responses and stimuli that inflame IBS symptoms.

Hypnotherapy is capable of addressing both the physical and emotional triggers that make IBS such a difficult and often embarrassing condition to live with. From progressive muscle relaxation to guided imagery, Hypnotherapy empowers the brain to take control of the internal mechanisms, and responses that cause abdominal Discomfort.

We Can Help You in the Fight Against IBS

Sufferers no longer have to live with the daily Discomfort, anxiety and embarrassment caused by IBS. At Hypnocare, Linda and Jan will work through overcoming the psychological issues that aggravate the symptoms of IBS. Whether it’s learning to say no to unhealthy, trigger foods or re-establishing a working connection between brain and stomach, the power of deep relaxation, positive affirmations and helpful suggestion is a proven technique in combatting an uncooperative gut.

The additional benefits of Hypnotherapy in fostering a healthy, reduced-stress mind affects so much more than IBS. Hypnotherapy helps to fight off anxiety, bad habits and stress, leading to a healthier mind and, in turn, a healthier body. Say goodbye to IBS Pain and Discomfort and hello to a calmer, happier life.

Here's what our clients have to say

Have been seeing linda for a few months now and has changed my life for the better greatly! I was sceptical at first but Linda made me feel so comfortable and she really is great at what she does My issue was with alcohol and no longer is an issue for me. Thanks again Linda

I was a habitual worrier. If all was ok my mind would search for the next problem. I came out of my second session with Linda and this had disappeared. I felt light. I had a realisation that whatever my situation, I had a choice. It was highly liberating and has persevered. I ended up studying hypnosis and have a new respect for what Linda helped me achieve. She's genuine and down to earth. Thanks Linda

Linda is a very experienced practitioner in the field. I feel very lucky to have had support from such a seasoned professional. Thank you for all you have done to help me progress Linda. It is much appreciated.

It’s been 8 weeks smoke free and the idea of picking up a cigarette is so unappealing I now sometimes wonder how I was ever a smoker. My skin is better, I'm not carrying around guilt every day, I don't stink, I'm not as anxious, basically I'm so happy it's all behind me and count my lucky stars I don't have to live that smoker life anymore. I think I was really ready to quit this time, and can't thank Linda enough for helping me make that happen. I didn't know if I had the strength to quit for good, but the session we did reminded me just how strong I am. Thank you millions and millions Linda, that one afternoon in your chair has changed my life and helped me kick a habit I've struggled with for over 10 years. Thank you so very much 🙏🙏

In 2008 I visited Linda in her Subiaco clinic to treat a psychological tick involving constant jaw clenching/clicking (probably around 200 times per day - for years). After just 1 session it stopped dead immediately - 100%. It has now remained a forgotten habit for 9 years... had I not gone to her, I would have probably developed an arthritic jaw by now!

Wow! There are no words that can really express my transformation after a few sessions with Linda. When I initially came to see Linda, I was suffering from anxiety and depression from a number of traumatic experiences I had been through in recent years. My anxiety and depression had started impacting my work, relationships and health. I averaged 2 HRS of sleep a night and sat on my couch every painfully stricken day, debilitated by everything that was going on. After my first session, I drove out of Linda’s office feeling light as a feather; I slept like a baby that night and signed up to a gym. By my 3rd session, I was comfortable with speaking to a group of people, I was sleeping regularly and had a huge motivation to go to the gym six days a week. Not only is my life on track, I am following my dreams. Things that I promised myself I would do one day, I am already doing. What stood out for me, was that Linda’s work taught my inner being to help myself, rather than rely on other people to help me find my way. Linda’s work not only instantaneously helped me, the effects of Linda’s work has unfolded over the last 3 months. Thank you Linda. You are truly a blessing.
