Angel, with anything in treating IBS you pay your money and take your chances, however statistically Hypnotherpay has one of the highest, if not the highest success rates in IBS, so there is a good chance it will work for you and will not hurt you in anyway, because its a safe natural treatment. The reason why it works has a lot to do with the brain gut connection.

It might be worth reading these links for the info, before you decide anything.

No one can tell you it will work for sure, but there is a good chance of it working and changing your IBS and hence your life. reading these will help.

" The experience to date may be outlined as follows:

* Reported success rates range from approximately 70-95% in all studies with any significant number of patients [for example, in the work of the Manchester group in England(4,5,13) and our studies(6,7)].
* The improvement enjoyed from this treatment often lasts at least two years after the end of treatment(5).
* All major IBS symptoms improve from this kind of treatment (abdominal pain, diarrhea/constipation, and bloating).
* There are some indications that individuals with certain characteristics are somewhat less likely to benefit from this kind of treatment(5,7,13): People with very little hypnotizability (perhaps 15-25 % of all people), persons with psychiatric disorders, and maybe (according to one report) males with diarrhea-predominant type of IBS.
* This treatment can be effective also when people are treated in groups(14).
* In addition to effects on physical symptoms, the treatment commonly improves psychological well-being and life functioning substantially(6,7,13,15) and can have long-term positive effects in reducing disability and health care costs and improving the quality of life of IBS patients(15)."

Hope this helps, in the thirty + years I have had severe IBS, it has done more for me then anything on all my symptoms and long term and not just for me but many many others.

I took so many meds and otc for my IBS over the years that was a problem in itself and none of them did anything really.

If you have questions ask away and we will try to help.It may seem weird, but its documented and well accepted now as a treatment for IBS. Hope this helps.
