Mind power is so effective at controlling the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) it is now recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence.
Professor Peter Whorwell, an IBS specialist based at the University of Manchester, pioneered the approach because standard treatments were failing for many of his patients.
“I got into hypnosis because the conventional treatment of these conditions is abysmal,” he says.
Patients start with a brief lesson in how the gut works and are then asked to imagine a feeling of warmth and their bowel working normally.
He has shown that under hypnosis they are even able to slow bowel contractions which is usually impossible. Patients also become less sensitive to pain.
Professor Whorwell is not sure how the hypnosis works but said there is “a lot of incontrovertible research” that it does.
