Hypnosis helps patients with inflammatory bowel disease

Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are debilitating illnesses that affect quality of life and mess with your wellbeing.
They are both immune diseases which cause the intestines to become inflamed, resulting in lots of pain for those afflicted.

Traditional medicine and surgery have long been the go-to remedies to manage inflammatory diseases like these, but now, inflammatory bowel disease specialists are exploring the connection between mind and gut and using alternative therapies to bring relief.

In this article about Hypnosis and Inflammatory Bowel disease reported on WNDU, which is an NBC affiliated news service, patients and practitioners talk about how hypnosis can help bring about behavioural and dietary change.
