How to Beat Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Everyone has the odd tummy upset,  but if you find you are constantly having painful cramps, constipation diarrhoea and a feleing of bloating then you could be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).   Doctors are still not sure what causes the condition but the good news is that you can do things to control it.   Hypnotherapy has been proven to be an effective treatment. More than 80 per cent of people with IBS who try it find they improve.  So how does it work?   Experiencing hypnosis is a pleasant and natural state which you will recognise if you have ever become so absorbed in  a film or a book that you were not aware of the world around you. A trained hypnotherapist can work with you to use this state to anchor new ideas in your subconcious mind. For IBS in particular we can work together to help you to control the pain in your gut, and to reduce bloating. We can also work, using guided imagery and meditation to reduce anxiety and help you get your confidence back.   Many people also find that stress can act as a trigger for IBS. Again hypnotherapy can help here by working with you to find better ways to manage your stress. If you come to us at wellthought we can give you a complete programme of treatment to overcome the problem.

This is often stress but some foods can play a role.    Another thing a good hypnotherapist will do is encourage you to keep a food diary. You know best how your body reacts to diet. And you may find that certain foods act as a trigger which makes your IBS worse. Wheat products and dairy products can be frequent problems. If you do find that this is the case then you might want to consider moving to gluten free or dairy free alternatives.
