Easing IBS Symptoms

I have had many requests over the years about how to best employ hypnosis, hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis to successfully help deal with the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Following on from some exploration and blogging early in 2012, I put together a couple of tracks for helping ease the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, using hypnosis. This hypnosis audio track contains a simple and easy process to help deal with IBS Symptoms.

When I first start researching specific issues and ailments using hypnosis and hypnotherapy, it is always wonderful when firstly, the subject matter has some supporting evidence, and secondly, that supporting evidence is positive!

With a review of the literature, I have actually been reading in the past couple of weeks, some main studies stand out:

Whorwell, P.J., Prior, A. and Farragher, E.B. (1984)

Controlled trial of hypnotherapy in the treatment of severe refractory irritable bowel syndrome. Lancet, 2:1232-1234 (although I mainly referred to this study via a review of the study conducted and published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis)

Palsson, O. S., Turner, M. J., Johnson, D. A., Burnett, C. K. and Whitehead, W. E. (2002) Hypnosis treatment for severe irritable bowel syndrome. Digestive Diseases and Sciences, 47: 2605-2614.

Harvey, R. F., Hinton, R. A., Gunary, R. M. and Barry, R. E. (1989) Individual and group hypnotherapy in treatment of refractory irritable bowel syndrome. Lancet, 1: 424-425.

And another great related study:

Talley, N., Owen, B. K., Boyce, P. and Paterson, K. (1996) Psychological treatments for irritable bowel syndrome: a critique of controlled treatment trials. American Journal of Gastroenterology, 91: 277-286.

This is all well and good, and shows that there is a strong evidence base to suggest that hypnosis is more effective than the placebo and other control group interventions within the studies, although we’d like to see more studies completed on more people of course.

I could go on and on and offer up my own thoughts and review on the literature, however, that would not make for very entertaining listening or reading.

The reason that I mention the studies is that I have been and read them and found a number of consistent applications that were used that I have used in therapeutic practice before now, and also that I have adapted as a number of hypnosis audio tracks.

This hypnosis audio track requires a lot of repetition; in fact the vast majority of the processes that I shall be sharing here do require repetition to be the most efficacious.

With the repetition, you’ll start to develop control and more of a notable response to the technique.

This particular process is designed to help soothe the symptoms of IBS, but also to heighten control of gut function.

Speaking of which, anyone wishing to derive the most benefit from these types of processes will enhance the effectiveness of the process with a good understanding of the physiology of the gut. I’d recommend going and giving it a google or looking it up in an anatomy manual of some kind.

Get a good idea of whereabouts your colon, stomach, small intestine and large bowel is located, for example. It’ll demonstrate that the pain of IBS is not always deep in the pits of our lower abdomen, but can reach up to our ribs where our large bowel extends towards.

Sometimes, the pain, spasms and oversensitivity associated with IBS can seem out of our control, so repeated use of processes such as todays, are designed to give you a coping skill and a sense of control.

Prior to starting, have a good think about your own ongoing symptoms with IBS (i.e. Noting differences between diarrhea and constipation) and with the symptoms in mind, then we can get set up and ready to start.

Using a Warm Hand to Ease IBS

Following on from some exploration and blogging early in 2012, I put together a couple of tracks for helping ease the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, using hypnosis. This hypnosis audio track contains a simple and easy process to help deal with IBS Symptoms.

We are surely all aware that when we have experienced an upset tummy, that we often instinctively place our hand upon it as a means of soothing – in much the same way that a parent may have done when we were smaller.

Likewise, I can remember being in bed with stomach cramps after sporting exertions and dehydration when I was in my early teens and found holding a warm water bottle on my tummy helped it to relax, stop its spasms and eventually ease the pain.

This hypnosis audio session is similar to my other hypnosis audio track aimed at IBS relief in terms of it helping to relax and ease the stomach area when you have symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, and it also helps to establish a sense of self-efficacy in dealing with those symptoms and gives us a sense of personal control. Ideally when we start to rehearse these types of processes, they can be used not only as a preventative measure, but also then can be used as a coping skill to abate and deal with symptoms if and/or when they occur in the future

Enjoy this session, if you have ever suffered from IBS, I think you are going to enjoy this track.
