A news report in the Daily Mirror, of the 25th of March 2008, titled "Hypnosis hailed as IBS 'cure'" stated that hypnosis (specifically for 'gut-directed hypnotherapy') for the treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome had a 70% success rate, but that the waiting list for treatment was 10 months.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a very common condition in Morden, Merton today. It affects a third of the population at some time or other, and about one in ten people suffer symptoms bad enough to see their GP. It can be painful, distressing and affect social and professional life.

Hypnotherapy can help with the symptoms of IBS but diagnosis should be confirmed by a qualified medical practitioner before seeking treatment from me.

Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) include abdominal pain, diarrhoea, abdominal discomfort, abdominal distension, constipation, or an otherwise unexplained change in bowel movements.

There is no single known physical cause for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

When the term Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS was first coined in the 1950's, it was suggested that, because there was no detectable physical cause to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), it should be regarded as a psychological, or psychosomatic problem.

Studies at the time also suggested that the best treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), was up to a year and a half of psychotherapy.

It is well known that there is a strong link between anxiety and IBS and most suffers report that the symptoms of IBS are related to stress.

The autonomic nervous system responsible for the fight/flight response is aroused during stress. One of the functions of the autonomic nervous system is to divert blood to the muscles of the body which will be required to either run away from a predator or fight. It is not a priority for the body to digest food during a stressful experience so the digestive system's blood supply and activity is reduced during excessively stressful periods. If you become chronically stressed then this can lead to digestive problems such as IBS.
