“Irritable Bowel Syndrome [IBS] is a chronic and debilitating functional gastrointestinal disorder that affects 9–23% of the population across the world,” write Y.A. McKenzie, MSc, from Nuffield Health the Manor Hospital, Oxford, United Kingdom, and colleagues from the BDA Gastroenterology Specialist Group.” Reports in this article Laura Barclay MD, in the webpage Medscape.
IBS presents different symptoms in different individuals. These can be as varied as opposites, as it is the case, for example, of dhiarrea and constipation. The newly presented nutritional guidelines are conceived with the aim of helping standarise the treatment given by diet therapists. A standarised treatment will also give clear data in order to continue research on this field. In the article you will find some specific nutritional recommendations, mainly directed to professional dietitians and nutritionists.
Clinical hypnotherapy provides tools which can help mantain a controlled healthy diet. Clinical hypnosis has also developed techniques to help palliate the pain or discomfort caused by IBS, with positive results. Professor Peter Whorell BSc MB BS MD PhD FRCP of the University of Manchester is a pioneer in this field.
