What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS?
IBS is one of the most common digestive disorders affecting Americans today. IBS is a chronic condition affecting the lower intestine, or colon, with symptoms ranging from very mild to severe. Those affected usually require long term management. To get IBS relief, consider how stress affects you. Hypnosis can help you naturally relax and get the relief you desire.
The cause of IBS is unknown. Two out of three sufferers are women. Researchers have found a link between IBS and pre-existing psychological conditions like anxiety and depression. Stress often will worsen symptoms which range from very mild to extremely severe.
Because stress often makes IBS symptoms worse, your doctor might recommend a medication to calm you. The choice is up to you if you want to take prescription medications. Discuss this with your doctor.
However, you can find natural ways to reduce stress such as using meditation or using self-hypnosis. Self-hypnotic suggestions have proven to be a natural, effective way to manage stress. You can enjoy it almost instantly after you train your mind how to use it.
A proper and correct diagnosis of IBS is made by your doctor. Therefore, it is very important you tell your doctor all symptoms you are experiencing. To get IBS relief, tell your doctor which foods make your symptoms worse. It’s very important to give detailed information to your doctor including family history of IBS.
Whether you have mild indigestion, abdominal cramping, bloating, or severe symptoms like diarrhea and constipation, you are at risk for malnutrition. This ultimately will affect your quality of life. Treatment ordered by your doctor will be aimed at managing your symptoms. Using self-hypnosis regularly to destress can be a very important part of getting IBS relief. There is no known cure for IBS.
