Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
IBS sufferers often have somewhat restricted lives. Symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, flatulence, indigestion, heartburn diarrhoea and constipation. These symptoms can have a serious negative impact on the enjoyment of life.
Although the exact cause of IBS is unknown, diet and over-activity of the digestive system are thought to be key causes. New thinking suggest that anxiety and stress may be an even bigger factor.
Conventional treatments for the condition are not always successful.
Hypnotherapy has been extremely useful for helping sufferers to relax and to better manage stress and anxiety. The sessions can help to reduce the symptoms and to improve the quality of life.
Note: As IBS is considered a medical condition please seek medical advice prior to booking an appointment.
