IBS – What causes it and can it be cured?

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most debilitating conditions that a person can suffer.

The constant worries about potentially embarrassing yourself, whether there is a toilet nearby and being afflicted by sudden pain can greatly reduce your confidence just to go out the front door and live a normal life or have normal, social interactions.

IBS a common intestinal problem which affects up to 1 in 5 people in the UK.

There is usually no single specific cause for the problem – each person can develop symptoms as a result of a range of different factors. The most common include psychological factors such as anxiety, increased gut sensitivity or adverse reactions to certain food types.

According to

The International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders

, Hypnosis has been shown to be an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in a number of clinical studies, in which participants experienced improvements in overall well-being, quality of life, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, and bloating. According to these studies, hypnotherapy appears to offer symptomatic, psychological, and physiological benefits.
