Hypnosis hailed as IBS 'cure'
« on: 21 October, 2008, 10:51:10 PM »
Hypnotherapy may be a cure for irritable bowel syndrome after trials showed it has a 70 per cent success rate.

Doctors claim the mind relaxing technique combats the condition, which causes constipation, diarrhoea, cramps and nausea.

There is currently no cure for IBS, which affects 15 per cent of people.

But tests on more than 60 sufferers showed seven out of 10 benefited from hypnosis sessions.
