Constipation and Alternating Success Stories
      08/24/06 05:46 PM



From time to time we have inquiries regarding if the IBS
Every one is different for the time it takes to see some improvement, so don't despair, improvement is not always seen after just a few sessions, but it is gradual. Here are some folks from the success thread that have been helped with Mike's program for improvement with C (Constipation) and bloating.

Also take a peek at the symptoms chart -

http://www.helpforibs.com/shop/books/hypnoibs.asp

You will see the rate of symtom improvement for constipation and bloating - and for 20 IBS and related symptoms.

Remember to be gentle with yourself and persevere - you most likely have had IBS longer than 100 days, so just know that you can feel better with time and patience...

Here are some encouraging posts for Constipation and alternating symptoms where the program was helpful -


----------------------------


I finished listening to Mike's tapes in March 2000. Prior to that I alternated C&D, with constipation and pain lasting 3 days at a time, and a lot of bloating. I rarely am constipated now, and only have pain around my period. Bloating is also to a minimum.

I've found that the tapes have helped other areas of my life, also. I tend to hold my stress in my lower back, and now when I feel the tension in that portion I do self-hypnosis and it relaxes the muscles to the point they don't go into spasms.

I'm extrememly lucky because I had only had IBS for about a year before doing these tapes, and so was able to nip it in the bud before it got worse. I listen to a tape or two once a week now just to relax.

=================================================

From LG
before I started the tapes I was constipated all the time, I suffered from almost
dialy nausea that would not let up, even woth motilium (a drug designed to eliminate
nausea, whatever the cause), I got a lot of bloating - to the extent that my clothes would
no longer fit by mid/late afternoon, cramping pains, especially in my lower right side,
lots of flatulence, and almost more importantly I felt miserable most of the time. It
seeemd that there was not much else in life except was I going to be able to 'go' today
and even if I did would it bring relief or would I still feel like htere should be more, would
I be able ot fit into my clothes and be comfortable etc etc. After doing the tapes I now
feel alot more positive, I can remeber now what a good day is and can keep this is
mind when things arn't so good. Yes I still have bad days, but they arnt as bad or as
frequent. The incomplete evacuation feeling is almost never there, and I very rarely feel
sick any more (this is great!). the bloating is less now, and I pass less gas.
I got quite dispondant when I was doing the tapes because I didnt really feel any thing
was changing until about 60 -70 days, but I emailed Mike and he was good enough to
reply and keep me on track.
This late action is probaly the reason why I like to carry on with the tapes now, plus I
cant really understand how or why the effect of 100 days would last forever wothout
some revison.

After 11 years of having this thing and trying most things I have read about on htese
BBs (including elimination diets, wheat free, dairy free, antidepressants, homeopathy,
yogs, fibre suppliments, low fibre diet, high fibre diet, linseeds, laxatives, bulking
agents, stool softeners.....de da de dah) I can honestly say that Mikes tapes have been
the most beneficial thing I ve done, so well worth the time and money.
Ugh, keep on witht the tapes, if you find they help even a little id say when you reach
100 days go back and start them again. Keep at it. I personally dont think that iBS is
entirely brain-gut, but I think it does play a large part in it, even if only as a consequence
rather than a cause.

================================================
From Scotcat-UK,
About a year ago I was suffering very badly with IBS-Constipation and was in constant pain. (I'd
suffered on and off for many years but never with continuous pain lasting many weeks)
After finding this website, I phoned up for the IBS tapes and spoke to Mike personally.
Although I was very sceptical that they would work, I was getting so desperate that I
would have tried anything!
It must have taken about three weeks before I started to feel any real benefit from the
tapes, although I was enjoying doing them anyway as it gave me some time through the
day to switch off and relax. I finished the tapes in late September and, by then, all my
IBS symptoms had gone. Before I started the tapes, my IBS used to flare up when I
would go round to friends' for a meal. I had even been known to resort to lying down flat
in their bathroom in an effort to get some relief from the pain. Now I can enjoy my
evenings out without worrying any more.
In the 6 months since I have finished the tapes, I have had only occasional, mild
cramping, but it has always gone after a day or so. I've even had a major holiday to
Florida without any symptoms. When I'm feeling stressed at work or home, I make time
to listen to my favourite session(s) again, and that always helps. What I'm trying to say
is please stick with the tapes if you are trying them. It might not be instant but it certainly
does work. I'd also like to say thanks to Mike - you've turned my life around.
================================================
From Jane 93
Yes they (Mike's tapes) helped me a lot..I rarely get C any more and therefore the gas is reduced...depending on what I eat. I found relief pretty early on and its been several years and I still feel good. I beleive it helps me relax my belly and so therefore helps get rid of C.
================================================

Hi everyone! I finished my tapes in early June and have also found benefit from them. (Sorry I haven't been around)
As an IBS-Constipation and GERD person, I've noticed that the constant urging to go during the day has slowed tremendously. I also feel less anxious. I feel that my bowel, in general, is less sensitive too -- it reacts less to the everyday stresses of life.

Anyways, I continue to listen to the tapes regularly in no particular order (just whatever I like).

Still hoping for more improvement as time goes on.

Thanks,
ng

I started on Dr. Michael Mahoney's 100-day program 32 days ago and it has been amazingly helpful. I have had a normal bowel movement almost every day for 2 weeks, reduced bloating, and less anxiety. I can't recommend it enough.
