Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a medical diagnosis that confirms this dysfunction is not caused by antigens such as bacteria or viruses. When the GI tract is no longer effectively processing and eliminating foods, it is considered dysfunctional – it’s just not working properly. Hypnosis works with the unconscious processes of the mind and body and retrains the digestive system to relearn the process so that food moves from the mouth to the anus with the muscles, nerves and tissues of the GI tract working together in a synchronized timely and smooth fashion. The hypnosis protocol is backed by a large body of research conducted in universities and hospitals in the UK and the US.
Recent studies have placed full recovery at 90% of sufferers. The program deals with 6 specific issues relating to the dysfunction over a period of 3 months. The client must listen to a recording once a day and must track their progress by rating (0-10) a list of their symptoms at the end of the day. Stability of the GI tract is generally fully established after 3 months although the client begins to stabilize by the 3rd week. Foods are gradually introduced to access a wide and balanced nutrition and to give time to the gut to learn how to process healthy food again. By 6 months, function of the GI tract is fully and permanently restored. Nearly all my clients have recovered their normal digestive function.
