Research & Outcomes

External Research: Hypnotherapy for IBS

Hypnotherapy for treatment of irritable bowel syndrome

Webb, A.N., et al. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 2007(4).
Key finding
The therapeutic effect of hypnotherapy was found to be superior to that of a waiting list control or usual medical management, for abdominal pain and composite primary IBS symptoms, in the short term in patients who fail standard medical therapy. Harmful side-effects were not reported in any of the trials.

Hypnotherapy for irritable bowel syndrome: an audit of one thousand adult patients.

Miller, V., et al., Alimentary pharmacology & therapeutics, 2015. 41(9): p. 844-855.
Key finding
Significant reductions in IBS symptoms and anxiety were observed via hypnotherapy for IBS.

Hypnotherapy for Children With Functional Abdominal Pain or Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Vlieger, A.M., et al., Gastroenterology, 2007. 133(5): p. 1430-1436.
Key finding
Gut-directed HT is highly effective in the treatment of children with longstanding Functional Abdominal Pain or IBS.

The Efficacy of Hypnotherapy in the Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Lee, H.H., Y.Y. Choi, and M.-G. Choi, Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, 2014. 20(2): p. 152-162.
Key finding
Significant reductions were achieved in abdominal pain and overall gastrointestinal symptoms. The study provides clearer evidence that hypnotherapy has beneficial short-term effects in improving gastrointestinal symptoms of patients with IBS.

Comparison of Hypnotherapy and Standard Medical Treatment Alone on Quality of Life in Patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Randomized Control Trial.

Shahbazi, K., K. Solati, and A. Hasanpour-Dehkordi, Journal of clinical and diagnostic research : JCDR, 2016. 10(5): p. OC01-OC4.
Key finding
Psychological intervention, particularly hypnotherapy, alongside standard medical therapy could contribute to improving quality of life, pain and fatigue, and psychological disorder in IBS patients resistant to treatment. Also, therapeutic costs, hospital stay and days lost from work could be decreased and patients’ efficiency could be increased.

Effects of gut-directed hypnotherapy on IBS in different clinical settings—results from two randomized, controlled trials.

Lindfors, P., et al., American Journal of Gastroenterology, 2012. 107(2): p. 276-285.
Key finding
Gut-directed hypnotherapy is an effective treatment alternative for patients with refractory IBS, but the effectiveness is lower when the therapy is given outside the highly specialized research centers.

Efficacy of individual and group hypnotherapy in irritable bowel syndrome (IMAGINE): a multicentre randomised controlled trial.

Flik, C.E., et al., The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology, 2019. (1): p. 20-31.
Key finding
Hypnotherapy should be considered as a possible treatment for patients with IBS in primary and secondary care. Furthermore, group therapy could allow many more patients to be treated for the same cost.
