What are the symptoms
Symptoms do vary considerably from person to person but may include the following:
pain (which can range from mild to severe)

NB This list of symptoms is not exhaustive and may be caused by problems other than IBS. In every case, you should always consult your GP for advice.
The precise causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are not known, however some experts suggest that it could be triggered by specific types of food, hormones and stress or a combination of the these. It is generally agreed within the medical profession that whilst the precise causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS are not known,it is widely accepted that psychological issues such as stress and anxiety do play a major part in triggering the symptoms.
When we look at the major stressors such as death of a
loved one, divorce, moving home or being made redundant...these could be a
contributory factor to IBS symptoms
The Benefits of Online Virtual Hypnotherapy for IBS
Online hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for people with severe
irritable bowel syndrome, a new study has found.
Hypnotherapy, in combination with other treatments, has been shown to be an
effective treatment for patients with serious symptoms of irritable bowel
syndrome which do not respond to other treatment.
Could hypnosis cure a painful gut?
Hypnosis could be one of the most effective ways of beating irritable bowel syndrome, according to new research.
It found 40 per cent of patients volunteering to be hypnotised suffered fewer symptoms afterwards and that the benefits appear to be long lasting. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gut problem which affects up to one in five people at some point.
Treatment normally involves avoiding foods that might trigger symptoms, taking drugs to halt abdominal pain and diarrhoea or under-going some form of counselling.
Stress is thought to be one of the major triggers for IBS, and hypnotherapy works by helping patients to relax when they experience symptoms such as abdominal pain and bloating.
The research, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, involved giving 138 IBS patients hypnotherapy for an hour a week over a three month period: a similar sized control group had no treatment at all.
The results showed the reduction in symptoms continued a year after the treatment.

IBS sufferers are typically perfectionists setting themselves extremely high standards, having a fear of failure, and constantly needing to be aware of what others think of them.
Childhood experiences before the age of six years play a very important role in the development of a child. Personality, likes, dislikes, fears beliefs are formed at a very young age based upon these experiences
Regression hypnotherapy allows a person to re-experience these memories again as an adult thus allowing them to process them as an adult rather than a confused 5 year old.
The root causes of anxieties and stress will be unearthed from the subconscious.This will then allow a person to alter their reactions in the present day to situations that cause them to be fearful.
