IBS Relief in 1 to 2 Sessions

The Important of  Hypnotherapy in the Healing the Gut

The importance of gut health cannot be overestimated since the gut itself has a brain and more neuro transmitters than the brain itself. It is the center of the immune system, handles digestion, absorption of nutrients, and toxins, distribution of life sustaining nutrients throughout the body and even influences the uptake of the endocrine system hormones so vital to life such as thyroid and adrenal support hormones. When there is an insufficiency or imbalance of beneficial bacteria which help us absorb food and minerals it undermines all these processes. They also manufacture B vitamins and amino acids. Good bacteria like acidophilus and bifidobacterium must predominate over bad bacteria such as parasites and E. coli can lead to leakage into the rest of the body and eventually cancer of the colon.

The major pharmaceutical and supplemental weapons are antibiotics, probiotics, and prebiotics.  Psychosomatic causes and cures are discussed below.


SAN DIEGO, May 22 (Reuters Health) – Hypnotherapy improves irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, according to a report presented here at the Digestive Disease Week meetings.

IBS is an inflammatory digestive disorder. Its symptoms include abdominal pain, alternating constipation and diarrhea, bloating and depression. The disease, which appears to be aggravated by stress, affects mostly women, with the onset usually occurring between ages 20 to 30.

Dr. Olafur S. Palsson and colleagues at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia provided 24 IBS patients, 15 women and 9 men, with seven sessions of hypnosis treatment. In addition, the patients used hypnosis audiotapes at home.

At the end of the 14-week study period, 21 of the 24 patients “rated themselves improved in all central IBS symptoms after treatment,” the researchers report. Significant improvement was found in abdominal pain, bloating, stool consistency and bowel movement frequency.

Palsson’s group also measured the autonomic nervous system, which regulates the digestive system and other involuntary body activities. After the course of hypnotherapy, the autonomic nervous system was less easily stimulated. The researchers propose that this calming effect “may plausibly contribute to the symptom improvement.”


People with particularly stressful, abusive childhoods suffer from the disease more frequently than those with congenial childhoods. Onset can be as early as childhood and continue throughout life until the underlying causes are dealt with. What stresses the mind stresses the body since the body mind system is one unit interacting with an endless biochemical feedback loop. Additionally the gut and the mind are constantly sending messages back and forth so the phenomenon of shared anxiety is present. Other causes of disturbances are food allergies caused by insufficient digestive enzmes exacerbated by anxiety causing the digestive track to perform irregularly. 

Cognitive and Emotional Protocols implemented at the Life Management Center have been successful at controlling IBS for lifelong suffers with one or two sessions on-site or with phone sessions.
