Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS

Group Hypnosis Improves Symptoms and Quality of Life in IBS

Extracts from article: – “Patients with refractory irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have improved symptoms and quality of life following gut-directed group hypnosis, researchers from Austria report…Dr. Gabriele Moser from the Medical University of Vienna : “In gastroenterology centers it should be offered as a routine treatment, and gut-directed hypnotherapists should be a part of each gastroenterology team.”…The strongest effects of hypnotherapy were seen in daily activities, fatigue, and emotional aspects of IBS, the researchers note….Patients randomized to group hypnotherapy experienced significant reductions in anxiety and depression, whereas controls maintained their anxiety and depression scores near baseline…Dr. Peter Whorwell from Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester, UK has also studied hypnotherapy for IBS. He told Reuters Health, “Hypnotherapy should start to be integrated into the care of patients in general rather than being a stand-alone treatment.”
