Gut Directed Hypnotherapy: Promising Therapy for IBS
Hypnosis Now: Not What It Used To Be
Many of us are familiar with hypnosis only through old movies.
Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective therapy that is accepted by reputable organizations around the world.
The American Psychological Association defines hypnosis as “a therapeutic technique in which clinicians make suggestions .......
..... to individuals who have undergone a procedure designed to relax them and focus their minds.”
It is important to understand that the “suggestions” that are central to hypnotherapy’s efficacy do not cause individuals to lose control of their own behavior.
Yes, You Can Be Hypnotized
Everyone can be hypnotized, but individuals differ in terms of the level of depth they can achieve, or what’s called their overall “hypnotizability.”
In Gut Directed Hypnotherapy, the process is specifically targeted to disorders of the gastrointestinal tract.
GDH can Improve gut symptoms of:
- pain - stool - consistency - bloating - distension - gassiness - nausea
Typically, patients experience an alleviation of symptoms with 4-6 sessions of GDH.
Both GDH and the low FODMAP diet can reduce overall and individual symptoms by about 75% in the majority (75-80%) of patients.
