Cramps? Constipation? Diarrhoea? Bloating? No one wants digestive problems when there’s so much great food on offer over the festive season.
IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome, is the more common form of digestive problem. It is thought to effect about 1 in 10 people in the UK and is most common among women aged between 25 and 45.
IBS can be debilitating, causing sufferers to feel depressed and stressed. Although it can be life-changing, it is not life-threatening and is not thought to develop into bowel cancer.
Recent research shows that ‘mind’ therapies, such a hypnotherapy, can be effective at relieving the symptoms of IBS.
If you want to enjoy your full turkey dinner without disappearing to the bathroom every two seconds, you could book a session with a hypnotherapist. To find out more about how hypnotherapy can help you with IBS, please visit our Hypnotherapy Areas section.
