One of the many aspects of living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome is trying countless remedies to “cure” you of this uncomfortable syndrome. Whether it’s changing your diet, taking prescription drugs, or countless over-the-counter supplements, the experimenting seems endless.
After over 5 years of living with IBS, I still have yet to find the magical potion that will make my bathroom blues subside completely. While searching for that healing elixir, I’ve come across an interesting treatment for IBS: Hypnotherapy.
Michael Mahoney, a UK clinical hypnotherapist, has been successfully treating patients with in-person hypnotherapy sessions designed specifically for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He has also created the IBS Audio Program 100, which now brings these special sessions to those like me (yup, the budget doesn’t include regular flights to the UK) and the rest of the IBS suffering public.
I’ve made A LOT of progress on my own by forcing myself to do things I previously thought I couldn’t, like road trips, and flying, etc. I went from being completely paralyzed and almost housebound (to which many of my friends and family can attest) to having a full social calendar. Looking back, I realize that much of my success was achieved by doing things that trained my subconscious to think differently and therefore my body to react differently. For example, I stopped having panic attacks that led to IBS attacks when I had to go out to dinner, or drive long distances in the car.
I’ve since purchased the IBS Audio Program 100 as a means to improve upon the progress I’ve already made. After reading countless examples of the success of the program and from my own personal experience, I’m convinced it will greatly improve my quality of life and personal success with treating IBS. I will keep you updated as to my progress at a later date.
I firmly believe that when it comes to IBS, treating your mind is as important as treating your body, but don’t take my word for it. Read the interview with Michael Mahoney on the Extras page of this blog and try the program for yourself. Give it an honest attempt. You might just amaze yourself like I have.
