HYPNOSIS BEST WAY TO END IBS AGONY
HYPNOSIS is twice as effective in treating the painful symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome as other methods, according to a recent study.
The mental therapy, which includes soothing imagery and progressive relaxation techniques, helped 50 percent of test subjects find relief after one year, say researchers from University Medical Center in the Netherlands.
IBS is an incurable gastrointestinal disorder that affects as much as 16 percent of the population and typically causes abdominal pain, vomiting and bouts of diarrhea and constipation.
“We do not know exactly how gut-directed hypnotherapy works,” says study leader Dr. Carla Flik. “But it may change patients’ mindset and internal coping mechanisms, enabling them to increase their control over autonomic body processes, such as how they process pain and modulate gut activity.”
