Hypnotherapy eases IBS

18th March 2010

Hypnotherapy has a greater role to play in easing the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome according to Dr Roland Valori, editor of Frontline Gastroenterology.

He said of the first 100 of his patients treated, symptoms improved significantly for nine in 10. However, he is concerned that although previous research has shown hypnotherapy is effective for IBS sufferers, it is not widely used because doctors simply do not believe it works. Dr Valori, of Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, said the research evidence which shows that hypnotherapy could help sufferers of IBS was first published in the 1980s.
