April is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month

IBS awareness month happens every year in April. Of course, if you suffer from IBS you will certainly already be aware of the extreme discomfort it can cause. What you might not be aware of is that many people have found relief for their symptoms using hypnosis and relaxation techniques.

By definition, IBS has "no organic cause" which tends to suggest that the cause must be psychological rather than physiological. In my experience, this is usually the case. Any stress related gut problems ranging all the way from constipation to diarrhoea are conveniently labelled as IBS.

Please check my website for more information, including external links to dietary advice. If you would like to book a course of therapy to tackle your symptoms feel free to give me a call on 021 487 6072.
