What is IBS?   IBS Hypnosis Research: "Hypnosis may be an effective, long-term therapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), according to a new study.

The findings of the survey were reported in Gut, a specialist publication of the British Medical Association. Research was carried out over six years and involved more than 200 patients.

Around 71 percent of patients said that hypnotherapy successfully improved their condition, with positive effects that lasted up to 5 years. Many also found that hypnosis significantly helped to reduce levels of anxiety and depression associated with the condition.

The patients underwent one-hour sessions of hypnosis lasting up to 12 weeks. They were asked to note any changes in their symptoms, quality of life and mood before and immediately after their treatment, and up to six years later.

IBS is a common but little understood disorder of the digestive tract. It is characterised by a number of common symptoms including recurrent abdominal pains, constipation or diarrhoea."
