What is IBS hypnosis?

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition in which stomach pain is associated with a range of symptoms.

Typically, these include intermittent abdominal pain accompanied by constipation, diarrhea, or alternating episodes of both. Other symptoms may also be present.

It is a common functional gastrointestinal (GI) condition with worldwide occurences in 10–15% of the population.

Functional disorders are conditions where there is an absence of structural or biochemical abnormalities on common diagnostic tests, which could explain symptoms.

  4. Focusing on the “miscommunication” between the gut and the brain, which will be therapeutic
  5. Providing an ongoing and healthy coping strategy.
