Irritable Bowel is one of the most common health problems related to the gastrointestinal tract, with 10-20% of the UK population suffering from this extremely uncomfortable condition. However it is expected that even more people with the condition suffer in silence so the numbers are likely to be much higher.
Symptoms vary to each individual, as does the cause, however in many cases it can be extremely debilitating and reduces the quality of life for many suffering with it.
Because of the individual causes of this disorder, doctors are often dismissive about the condition, as unsure how to tackle it best.
Research - Mind and Body
Research from the top Gastroenterologists and Clinical Psychologists, show that there must be a multi-disciplinary approach, to include the use of dietary intervention and also helping to tackle a patients mindset. Hypnotherapy has been found to be a very effective way of dealing with IBS, according to a study in the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
In fact, more than three-quarters (78%) of the 250 study participants reported improvements in their bowel habit, or stool frequency and consistency, after they underwent hypnotherapy.
Extracolonic symptoms reported by the patients, such as lethargy, body pains, backache, and urinary symptoms improved after hypnotherapy. The therapy also reportedly improved the patients’ quality of life and reduced their anxiety and depression."
So How Can I help you?
Being a Regsitered Nutritionist aligned to medicine I used to feel helpless trying to improve the symptoms and quality of life for IBS sufferers, as diet alone just didn't seem to help in a large majority of cases. This was what prompted me to look into how I could best tackle to mind to improve my patients health, so trained to become a Master Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner.
This combination has really revolutionised my service and success, helping many people feel the best they have felt for years and in some cases ever. Very rewarding indeed!!!
"I went to see Nicky after suffering for a few years with uncomfortable bouts of IBS. My symptoms were beginning to take over some aspects of my life and I found it hard to find a way to overcome the sometimes debilitating aspects of IBS.
Nicky helped me work through the root cause of my symptoms, discovering my limiting beliefs and working towards a more peaceful being and ultimately a more peaceful and calm tummy! Nicky used hypnotherapy and relaxation therapies and she showed me how to deal with stresses that were causing the problems. Over the course of a few weeks my IBS symptoms were gradually alleviated.
Now, thanks to Nicky, I am much better equipped to deal with stresses in my life and as a result my tummy and I are both much calmer!"
