Your Doctor has diagnosed that you are suffering with the symptoms of IBS, so now what?
You still have the pain, the bloated feeling, always worried about how far the nearest toilet might be. The constant worry of suddenly succumbing to an attack of painful, griping, stomach ache, a bloated waist, and uncontrollable diarrhoea, can be so embarrassing that it often prevents the sufferer from leading a normal life. The fear of having an IBS attack when they are not in familiar surroundings, can create such anxiety, stress, and illness, that many people have to give up their jobs, avoid meals out and are prevented from even going on holiday.
For some, the symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome can be helped by adhering to strict dietary limitations, but this does not work for all and is not always easy to maintain.
With Hypnotherapy you can learn how to change the way your body feels and works, reducing discomfort, a bloated stomach, and stomach ache. It will teach you how to use your own unconscious resources to relax your stomach, and intestines, and calm the spasms, reducing the bloated feeling and improving the natural flow of body waste.
The imagery that used during the state of hypnosis will help you learn how to control your IBS rather than it control you. Once you have learnt how to relax, and control the symptoms yourself, they will disappear or reduce so dramatically that they become unnoticeable.
After using Hypnotherapy regularly, you will feel more confident to regain your life, and start enjoying things you never thought you could. Taking back the control you had lost.
Conquering IBS with self-hypnosis is now used in many NHS Hospitals, and is proving to be as useful, if not more so, than medication.

Hypnotherapy in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.
There is accumulating and compelling evidence that hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. Recently, studies have shown that hypnotherapy has beneficial effects that are long lasting, with most patients maintaining improvement, and with decreased consultation and medication needs in the long term. The particular gut directed approach used, which is aimed at normalizing and controlling gut function, is also described. While the mechanisms of how hypnotherapy brings about its therapeutic effect are not fully known, changes in colonic motility and rectal sensitivity have been demonstrated, although changes in central processing and psychological effects may also play a role".

Remember, Self-Hypnosis is a powerful self-help tool for implementing change within your life. It is simple, effective, and non-invasive, produces long-term changes, and can be used by almost everyone.
Hypnotherapy sessions often include the benefit of soothing music at strategic points, helping you to relax even more, and absorb the information whilst the therapist guides you with gentle suggestions, positive language, and life changing imagery. You will always be in control at all times, able to awaken immediately should the need arise and attend to anything that you need to. Hypnotherapy cannot make you do anything or say anything that you would not normally say or do, and it will never coerce you to try to.
By using self-hypnosis CDs and mp3 downloads, you will have at the touch of button, a full Hypnotherapy session that can be used whenever you need to, as often as you need to. It's as simple as that.
Frequently Asked Questions
Constipation - burning pain in upper left abdomen.?
Hey there folks.
For about the past 2 weeks, I have been suffering from abdominal pain from constipation. But for the past 2 days I've had really painful burning sensations in my upper left abdomen, just on level with my lowest rib. I've also had a little bit of an acidic taste in my mouth - I've had refluxes/heartburn before, but none as bad as this. I'm only 19, don't smoke and rarely drink alcohol.
Any ideas as to what it could be? I think I've just been making it worse by looking up stuff online and making myself generally more anxious about this. I've phoned NHS Direct already and they've told me it's just constipation, but this feels a bit different.
Thanks for your help.
if you haven't been to the toilet at all for 7 days get yourself to the doctors, you can even try medoc (an out of hours doctors service provided by the NHS) you could be that full that it needs to get out before you get ill.
you also shouldn't be suffering from serious constipation for more than a week or so, so get yourself seen to.
if any pain becomes unbearable get yourself to the closest A&E, just to be on the safe side.
although i've not ever gone through what you are now, i know it's best to be on the safe side. i had a serious pain a few years ago, thought it was my appendix as it was in the right location, went to A&E. turned out that my left fallopian tube was in spasm!
