Well, so far I am only on day 14 or so, so really don't know if it is going to help my IBS yet. What I have experienced is just how relaxed it makes me. When I first listened and took the three deep breaths I noticed that I felt better and more relaxed after the breaths. After about day 4-5 I didn't notice a big difference in feeling more relaxed after the breaths BECAUSE I was already relaxed before I even started. I look forward to the sessions and love the time to just drift off with his soothing voice. I am on tape 2. I too sometimes fall asleep so try sitting in a reclining position rather than flat which helps some. I fell asleep a few days ago and the tape had gone beyond tape 2 part I and I woke up to part II which sounds just as good but I shut it off till I'm ready to get there. I had a patch of anxiety panic attacks 14 yrs ago or so when I first got IBS from all the stress of not knowing what was going on with me, physically and also job problems. It was mostly always while I was driving to work (lots of stress there ). Hadn't had them since but then they just reared their ugly head a few mos ago as I had a really scary auto incident and a few break downs on the freeway. Again, only when driving. I'm finding since listening to these tapes they are happening less frequently. I'm hoping for more improvement. At first the price made me balk but now I'm thinking it is really pretty inexpensive when you consider what in person sessions would cost and maybe have someone who really didn't do it right for IBS. Also, think about how much we all spend on pills and potions for this. I would recommend it for anxiety/stress if nothing else.
