Exploring the Benefits of Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that affects the large intestine and can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. These symptoms can be debilitating and greatly impact a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, there are alternative therapies available that can help reduce these symptoms, and one of them is hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that uses hypnosis to help change a person’s thoughts and behaviors related to their condition. In the case of IBS, a hypnotherapist will guide the patient into a state of deep relaxation and suggest positive changes in the patient’s thoughts and behaviors related to their IBS. For example, the therapist may suggest that the patient’s stomach and intestines are functioning properly, that they can control their bowel movements, or that they can eat certain foods without experiencing symptoms. By repeatedly suggesting these positive changes, the therapist aims to re-train the patient’s subconscious mind to respond differently to triggers that cause IBS symptoms.

Research has shown that hypnotherapy can be effective in reducing symptoms of IBS. A study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology found that patients who received hypnotherapy for IBS experienced a significant reduction in symptoms compared to those who received standard care alone. In addition, many patients reported an improvement in their overall quality of life.

It’s important to note that hypnotherapy is not a cure for IBS, and it may not work for everyone. It is important to speak with a qualified healthcare professional before undergoing hypnotherapy, or any other alternative therapy, to ensure it is appropriate for you.

Additionally, hypnotherapy should be used in combination with other conventional treatment options such as dietary changes, and medications, as prescribed by a physician.

If you’re interested in trying hypnotherapy for IBS, it’s important to find a qualified practitioner. Look for a therapist who is licensed, certified, and has experience treating IBS with hypnotherapy. It’s also helpful to prepare for your session by thinking about your specific symptoms and triggers and discussing them with your therapist.

In conclusion, hypnotherapy is a promising alternative therapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) that can help to reduce symptoms and improve the overall quality of life. It should be used in combination with other conventional treatment options and only after consulting a qualified healthcare professional.

Having helped many clients with IBS, you can feel confident that you are in safe hands.

IBS and Hypnotherapy. Does it really work?

How Hypnotherapy in London can help my IBS? Perhaps you have been battling with IBS for a few years now and nothing seems to work.

You have tried all different diets, gluten-free, dairy-free, keto, paleo, vegan and still, the diarrhea is there, the constipation is there, and the unexpected trips to the toilet are there.

Do you always need to know where is the nearest toilet? Feeling anxious about leaving home?

These are one of the most common complaints I hear from patients who visit me.

Why my IBS symptoms are not improving? You may ask. There is more than diet when it comes to IBS. The symptoms and triggers can feel sometimes unrelated, sometimes you eat this food and you feel fine and others you eat the same food and you feel terrible. Why all these? 

It turns out that our brains and our guts are interconnected and communicate all the time. 

Do you remember your first crush? the butterflies in the stomach? that’s one example.

Do you remember a time when someone said something bad to you, and you could not digest it? and the pain in the stomach? this is another example.

What Hypnotherapy can do to help you with all these issues related to IBS?

There is now good evidence that hypnotherapy has proven to help re-establish the connection once had with your gut. The Vagus nerve is responsible for this connection. Hypnotherapy works by activating this specific nerve and enhances healing by using hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy is arguably one of the most effective ways to ease and heal IBS in complex patients when other approaches didn’t bring the desired outcomes.

Most of my clients who come to try my hypnotherapy method tailored specifically to IBS have noticed dramatic improvements after only 1 session. 

The recommended treatment plan for IBS typically it’s from 3 to 6 sessions. Some patients need less and some may require a few extras. 

Are you ready to take back control of your life?

Start the new year smoke-free!

New Year starts with a new you. Actually, what we change and improve in our lives has an effect on the year that just passed. I always thought that celebrating a new year was boring, but now I see the real reason we celebrate. We celebrate our success, goals, and what we achieved with the people we love.

How about celebrating a new habit this year? Or leaving behind an unhealthy habit that is not serving you?

Did you know that on average, we tend to stick to new habits when the New Year starts?

I know how you may feel. Perhaps you tried many times to quit smoking in the past, tried different methods, patches, and gums, and went cold turkey. But still, somehow you keep coming back to smoke more even after trying so many different times and ways.

Hypnotherapy for quitting smoking has proven to be the most effective way to say bye to cigarettes.

Cigarette smoking is one of the greatest single causes of illness and premature death in the UK. Worldwide the number is far greater. Tobacco is killing around eight million people each year, while almost one million deaths are due to non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. Despite nearly 80,000 people in the UK dying from smoking-related illnesses each year, between 12-16% of adults still smoke. 

Though, it seems things are changing. 40 years ago, 51% of men and 41% of women were smokers. These rates have more than halved, with 14% of UK adults smoking, and 60% saying they have never smoked.

Quitting smoking is a big challenge. It takes more than just willpower to give up smoking. There are many different options available to help you quit. From campaigns such as Stoptober to local support groups, therapy to medication. For many people, hypnotherapy is an effective solution.

Considering giving up smoking? Before you try to quit, it’s important to recognise why you want to quit and to be sure you are making this decision for yourself. Trying to quit when you’re not ready or for someone else can often lead to relapse, frustration, and feelings of failure. You are more likely to succeed if you commit to quitting for your own good. 

Why stop smoking?

Smoking increases the risk of developing a wide range of health ailments and diseases. But unfortunately, the habit doesn’t only harm the smoker’s health, it can also have a negative impact on the people around them. If smoking around children and babies, for example, they become vulnerable to many smoking-related health problems, such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and the risk of cot death will increase.

Adults who endure passive smoking for a long period of time are also at an increased risk of heart disease and lung cancer. Tobacco is also an irritant; therefore it can make conditions such as asthma worse.

Stopping smoking can help improve your health, enhance your quality of life, and reduce your risk of premature death. 

What are the benefits of quitting smoking?

It’s never too late to quit smoking. Whatever age you are, if you make the decision to stop, your health will benefit. However, the sooner you quit; the faster the body can recover and the risk of developing serious health conditions will decrease.

There are many benefits to stopping smoking, including:

  • more energy
  • improved immune system
  • longer life expectancy
  • better breathing
  • less stress
  • younger-looking skin
  • more money
  • reduced risk of cancers, heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease, and vascular disease
  • saving money (a pack a day costs around £3,500 a year)

Stopping smoking also prevents harm from coming to your friends and family through second-hand smoke. Passive smoking can be particularly harmful to children and babies, putting them at further risk of developing chest illnesses and infections, reduced lung function, middle ear disease, asthma attacks, and sudden and unexpected death in infancy (SUDI). It also reduces the likelihood of your children and teens starting to smoke, as studies have shown children living with someone who smokes are much more likely to start themselves.

The effects of smoking cessation on the body

The time since the last cigarette and how it affects the body:

  • 20 minutes: Blood pressure and heart rate return to normal.
  • 12 hours: Carbon monoxide levels drop back to normal.
  • 24 hours: The body starts to clear out the mucus build-up in the lungs.
  • 72 hours: Breathing becomes easier and energy levels increase.
  • 1 month: Appearance of the skin improves.
  • 3 to 9 months: Lung function can improve by up to 10%.
  • 1 year: Risk of suffering from a heart attack falls to about half of that of a smoker.
  • 10 years: Risk of developing lung cancer falls to about half of that of a smoker.
  • 15 years: Risk of suffering heart attack falls to that of a non-smoker.

What are the risks and side effects of stopping smoking?

Stopping smoking can leave to a number of withdrawal symptoms. These can be uncomfortable, but they will fade as long as you remain smoke-free. Having ‘just one more’ or ‘just a last’ cigarette can restart the withdrawal process, drawing out the unpleasant side effects. These side effects can include:

  • cravings or urges to smoke
  • feelings of irritation, upset or being grouchy
  • feeling restless, on edge, or having trouble concentrating
  • feeling anxious or depressed
  • difficulty sleeping
  • feeling hungrier
  • weight gain (if replacing your smoking habit unintentionally with eating or snacking) 

While the side effects can vary from person to person, withdrawal symptoms typically peak within the first three days, lasting for two weeks. Many report feeling few to no symptoms once they have past the first month of stopping smoking.

Hypnotherapy to quit smoking

A great number of people find hypnotherapy for smoking an effective treatment. The method works to break the negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking; like smoking to relieve stress. It is these negative thoughts and behaviours that often prevent people from successfully giving up. Quitting does not deal with the underlying issues.

So, when a person makes the decision to stop smoking, the key aspect is to let go of the routine and change how they view cigarettes. Breaking an addiction like this is a challenge; it won’t be easy, especially if it is a lifelong habit, and changing how you think about something can be difficult.

Hypnotherapy focuses on this change. The hypnotherapist will support you and guide you through the motions, you’re no longer alone in trying to quit. Because of this, hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment.

Can you quit smoking through hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy works by guiding the individual into a deep, relaxed state. During this time, the mind is more open to suggestions and change. At this point, the hypnotherapist makes suggestions, which will help you in changing your thought patterns and behaviours associated with smoking.

Suggestions will be tailored to you, but will be along the lines of “I do not want a cigarette” and “the smell of cigarette smoke makes me feel unwell”. They may also ask you to visualise smoking a cigarette, but imagining an unpleasant taste or smell. This can help build an association – when you think of smoking, unpleasant thoughts will come as well.

Many people find hypnotherapy is enough to break the habit, while others prefer to combine the treatment with NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) or medication. Of course, everyone is different and what may work for one person, may not work for you. By exploring all options, you should be able to find a suitable and effective treatment. The best thing is to speak to people – friends, family, and other people who have quit. Discussing your options with your doctor and hypnotherapist can also help you understand what may be best for you.

It is important to remember that hypnotherapy for smoking is not a quick fix. While for some people, one session is enough to quit smoking (or continue the journey alone), others may benefit from follow-up sessions. The ultimate aim of hypnosis for smoking is to empower people to take control of their addiction and improve their health.

Can Hypnotherapy help me with Anxiety?

A lot of people are experiencing anxiety throughout their lives. Sometimes easier and sometimes not so easy to manage. Anxiety is a coping mechanism of your brain to keep you alert. This can happen for many reasons, although many times anxiety just co-exists with us we do not like the feelings associated with anxiety because it can make us feel uncomfortable.

For millennia humans used to live in nature, surrounded by trees and flowers. Nowadays we have moved to more civilized societies but our brains have not evolved so fast with technology and the new lifestyle we now live our lives.

We now have to manage a working schedule with a lot of stress involved, finance, career, relationship, social media, etc.. our brains feel overwhelmed and sometimes they give us the signal of anxiety when we are in a similar (life-threatening) situation but without any predators. 

Why someone has anxiety is very personal and there is no one formula that can solve everyone’s anxiety.  Now I will introduce you to the idea of inner search, creativity, and let go. Hypnotherapy and hypnosis can actually help you tap into your unconscious mind and reprogram any negative thoughts, situations, or habits that contribute to your anxiety. Hypnotherapy can also enhance your creativity and discover new ideas and create new patterns that will increase the sense of relaxation in your life. 

With Hypnotherapy you can of course get rid of your anxiety and stress, allowing your parasympathetic system to start working again at its normal rhythm and increase your overall well-being. 

I have worked online and in person with different people and from my experience anxiety is easily curable and requires very few sessions.

Hypnotherapy is a drug-free – pain-free alternative method to get rid of your anxiety with very minimal effort from your side. If you would like to learn more about how I can help you overcome your anxiety with Hypnotherapy just contact me.
