Hypnosis & Irritable Bowel Syndrome

ibsDid you know that 1 in 5 of all people world-wide have signs of IBS?

Did you know that 1 in 3 American women have signs of IBS?

We don’t talk about it, but it’s there – the chronic constipation, or the debilitating diarrhea. cramps, bloating, abdominal pain – How much of your life has been spent dealing with your symptoms? Where would you be now if you had the energy, the enthusiasm, the ability to plan and trust your body not to get in the way you had before you developed IBS? How much is IBS costing you?

Of course you need solid medical support. A reliable, well-informed physician can be a lifesaver. However, western medicine really doesn’t have that much to offer IBS. Very few sufferers really get well – and how many of you reading this right now are taking medications to control the side effects of your medications?

It doesn’t have to be like this! For over 20 years, there has been solid research proving that hypnosis works. From Dr. Whorwell’s groundbreaking studies in 1984, to the most recent published research by Dr. Gonsalkorale in 2003 – we know that up to 97% of all sufferers improve with a moderate course of hypnotherapy. 80% can have complete relief of symptoms. And Dr. Gonsalkorale’s study showed that the improvement lasted for 6 years – so much for the placebo effect.

The safe, easy, gentle state of hypnosis works. There are no side effects. There are no contraindications. The usual course of hypnotherapy for IBS is only 6 to 12 sessions. You may even be covered by your insurance. Are you ready to be well? Call, or email, me. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, we can arrange face-to-face sessions. If you live farther away, no problem. I have had great success working with people over the telephone. It is quite simple – we set up a schedule of phone calls every two weeks. We spend the first part of the session checking in, talking, and finding out exactly how you have been doing. Then we hang up – I make a personalized mp3 audio file for you, and mail it to you that day. You can then listen to the mp3 daily until the next phone session.

I look forward to connecting with you soon.
