Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a fairly common disease that strikes anywhere between 10 – 15% of the general population so there is no need to feel like you’re suffering alone.
The month of April is recognised as IBS awareness month which was declared by the IFFGD and is listed on the United States National Health Observances calendar.
IBS is a condition that effects the digestive system and is something I used to suffer from. Although there is no known cure there are treatments out there to help you cope.
The disease generally causes stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation and can be ongoing for weeks, months or longer at a time. The exact cause for this condition is unknown but research is ongoing.
Although stress does not cause IBS it is a contributing factor in the condition. Get stress under control and you'll find your IBS is less severe and may even go away. Hypnotherapy has a proven track record in helping control stress. So why suffer when you don't need to? Get in touch and make an appointment and we can discuss what may help you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
