Hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Facts about Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
IBS is the most common functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder with worldwide prevalence rates ranging generally in the area of 10–15%.
IBS is twice as common in women.
IBS is a functional problem i.e. a problem with the functional behaviour of the gut rather than the structure or biology.
Causes of IBS are complex and inadequately understood.
IBS has proven challenging to treat effectively. Many patients who receive medical care do not get satisfactory relief.
Psychological interventions are a logical approach because the brain helps regulate intestinal functioning and controls pain perception from gut sensations.
A lot of different psychological treatments have been tested with some success - however the treatments shown to be most successful by far are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnosis treatment.
Published studies on hypnosis treatment for IBS
The North Carolina protocol is a seven-session hypnosis-treatment approach for irritable bowel syndrome that is unique in that the entire course of treatment is designed for verbatim delivery. The protocol has been tested in two published research studies and found to benefit more than 80% of patients. This article describes the development, content, and testing of the protocol, and how it is used in clinical practice.
