Re: Diet and Hypnotherapy or Hypnosis

Hello and welcome -

I see you have posted the same questions on 10 threads, so I will reply to you here and on the hypnotherapy forum.

In response to your questions/comments:

"I am suffering from same disease."

IBS is not technically a 'disease' but rather a symdrome - it is functional in nature and you can read more about it in the home section of this website - just click on the top link on the left to read about IBS.

"Can anyone tell me about Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) treatment? "

Again, there are several treatments mentioned on this website: Diet, supplements, hypnosis/hypntherapy, and yoga - the links are on the left and fully explain each one.

Some people respond to modifying their diet, others take supplements - either along with a diet or alone, still others have found that hypnotherapy aids in their symptoms.

Also, how long have you had IBS - and how severe - these are factors to consider as well.

"What I will make changes in my lifestyle?"

Only your doctor can advise you in the best way - firstly you need to have a definite diagnosis of IBS from a physician because there are other conditions that may have the same symptoms as IBS but would be treated differently, so make sure you have been checked out by a doctor to verify your IBS diagnosis.

That being said, if you have been diagnosed, and perhaps your doc has not been able to help, then how long have you had IBS? What are your main symptoms? Only you can determine what lifestyle changes are best for you - some folks have IBS symptoms when they drink alcohol - so for them, cutting back or eliminating that would help ease symptoms - for others, stress may make their IBS worse, though it does not cause IBS, so for them, perhaps hypnotherapy would be helpful, still others may have motility issues and therefore use teas or peppermint caps to help ease those. Or a combination of several things too...

Most people go through a list of various diets, supplements, meds, etc before finding out what works best for them - what works for one person, may not for another, etc.

"What I have to make changes in my regular diet?"

Again, that is dependent upon your symptoms and if you have IBS or other food issues - some people are able to eat a regular diet after completion of hypnotherapy, others follow the Eating for IBS diet which is outlined in this website - others follow other diets - it is all up to what works best for you as an individual - trial and error.

We can share our stories of what works for us, but ultimately you will need to decide - and also consider what your doctor has to say, if they can help, great - obviously you are here, so perhaps you are looking beyond what your doc has suggested.

All the best to you in your quest to feeling better - there is a lot of information here and we are all here to help - it can be overwhelming, but there is hope!
