Using Hypnosis to deal with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Many times we suffer from various digestive tract issues, one major and debilitating one is Irritable bowel syndrome, this can vary in symptoms from constipation to going every few hours, with severe cramps and sometimes feeling dizzy and faint. Excruciating at best but something we have little or no control over.
So far there is no “cure” for IBS, only anti-spasmodic drugs which can help with the problematic symptoms of cramping but nothing can be prescribed to actually banish it.
Using hypnosis these symptoms can not only be controlled but the causing factor determined and dealt with effectively.
Using regression therapy, going back to childhood where the event that caused this, can reveal when and where this manifested itself, when we are in fight or flight mode the digestive tract can be compromised or sometimes the immune system, one single incident can be the cause of IBS, Ulcers and many other gastro intestinal issues and even cancer, causing the sufferer to live with pain and discomfort the rest of their lives, unless they look out of the box for another alternative therapy.
As children we are completely open to the world around us, from zero to seven years we have no sub-conscious mind which means we accept what happens with no question, the sub-conscious mind starts to develop at seven and is usually finished by the time we are around fifteen years old, as a child we have no back up in our mind to check in with or reassure us, we just conclude something about ourselves in that situation, this is what leads to an incorrect belief system and causes us problems we take into adult life.
An example below of how something can affect us the rest of our lives not only physically but also mentally is shown.
A client suffered for thirty-eight years with IBS and had no conscious recollection of how and why it was there.
She would sometimes go weeks without going to the bathroom, when this would happen she would feel light headed and almost pass out, the cramps were so painful, she just didn’t know what to do or where to go.
During a regression we went back to when she was eight years old, she did remember the incident but had no idea it was responsible for the IBS, she recalled being worried enough to stay awake that night, her single mother had been on edge all evening, after a while a guy knocked on the door and she let him in, after a few minutes the mood changed and he went over to her mother and grabbed her around the neck, at this point her adrenalin was in full flow and she didn't know what to do, she felt a sudden sense of urgency, ran down the stairs screaming at him to leave her mommy alone, she started to pin wheel her arms at him, after what seemed like ages he turned and left.
At that point she stood looking at her mother, she was so shocked she couldn’t say anything, mom never said sorry, never comforted my client in any way, after a few minutes which seemed like hours she ran upstairs and tried to sleep, she had no idea that this incident was to profoundly affect her life.
It was this incident that caused her IBS.
Had her mother comforted her and reassured her everything was ok, she would have been fine and never developed IBS, because she was left in the flight or fight mode for a long period she did not know when it was safe and spent the night terrified and scared and shaking.
Using hypnosis we use the emotions you feel about your issue as a bridge back to the cause, how you feel about your issue is the issue, in my client’s case she was angry, scared and nervous, in essence, this was the emotions she felt at the time the incident occurred.
A felt sense was also instrumental in finding the cause, when we suffer from an emotional issue it will manifest itself somewhere in the body, hers was in the lower abdomen area, she was asked to mentally drop down and describe what it felt like and what emotional quality it was, Sad was something that came up but also scared and fearful, suddenly the symptoms of her IBS were there, she began to feel faint like she was going to pass out, this is a way of accessing the Sub-conscious mind where the deep-seated issues reside.
With healing the resentment towards her mother for putting her in danger, forgiveness and healing the relationship, she felt so much better, and now lives IBS free, the trigger would be if she felt nervous, such as in her relationship, if an argument flared up it would trigger her IBS, now she no longer has to worry about IBS, she now also has a better relationship with her mother.
She would never have got to the bottom if this had it not been for Hypnotherapy.
So the next time you suffer physically, think for a minute, how do you feel about the issue? Can you relate this to an incident in your childhood? How does it make you feel? What is the emotion your feeling?
Hypnosis may be able to help you find out the initial incident that caused this and heal it completely, If you are interested in looking into this alternative therapy please make sure you find a Clinical Hypnotherapist and you must have a referral from your doctor so the therapist can know that you have been cleared medically for the condition you are trying to treat.
