I’ve only just started the program and I’m already starting to see an improvement in my symptoms! I love the simplicity of the layout and also the weekly readings- I’m learning so much more about my IBS and how the brain affects the gut Can’t wait to finish the program and be able to live my life again (plus eat without worry!) Thanks guys

Seems to be helping already! Excited to see if I can improve my IBS with this. I couldn’t handle the low FODMAP diet.

Just started the free trial. The hypnoses are well done and I’m looking forward to seeing change. The interface is simple and well designed too.

I’m a naturally anxious person & I think have got into a negative feedback cycle with worrying about my GI issues, and my body then over-responding to fodmap ‘trigger foods’. So far this app is really helping break this loop & everything has calmed down a lot only a few days in.

I have very much enjoyed utilizing the app. I have never attempted hypnotherapy before so I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, but I have been pleased with the program and with the results I have seen so far. I have definitely noticed an improvement in my IBS symptoms. During the course of the day, without me even actively trying to remember what was said during a session, the hypnotist’s voice will suddenly be there in my head. I can definitely tell that my subconscious is processing what was said. IBS is incredibly frustrating, and I feel that this app is a very good tool to help me live with this condition. Thank you.

For those of you who understand the mind-gut connection, I have good news! Nerva for IBS is working really well for me 😃 I have completed 6 weeks of therapy using the Nerva app & I have noticed tremendous improvement. I was desperate to try something & knew that a FODMAP diet approach didn’t make sense to me. I’m so glad I decided to try it. Since beginning the program, I’ve had only 3 flare-ups that lasted about an hour, with almost no pain 😱 That’s only 3 incidents in 35 days!!! I feel calmer, I can leave the house without anxiety, and I’m not obsessed with my gut all day long. I know this isn’t for everyone & I’m not “cured”....I’ll still have some bad days probably, but my IBS will no longer control my life. 🎉🎉🤗

I was a bit hesitant about purchasing this but I am so glad I did! IBS was severely unpairing my every day life before this app and I am now significantly better and can go about my life again and am no longer losing many nights sleep to stomach pain! I wanted to wait until I had completed the programme to review it and I would say it has definitely been worth it and I will be continuing to do the sessions occasionally going forward

I was skeptical at first but decided to give the app a try because it seems that I tried pretty much everything else, and I must say it made a big difference for me. Most of my symptoms have disappeared or are down to a level that is totally manageable.

Hypnotherapy sessions are gut directed and relaxing. They provide specific suggestions on how your body is healing itself. I’m only in week 3 so I’m not sure if things are working yet; but even if they don’t, I’m getting a relaxing meditation-like session each day which is good for my body and brain. The customer service is amazing. I’ve reached out to Alex probably five times with questions and he’s always replied, sometimes even on the weekends. I know that they really want this app to work for people. The price is also very reasonable if you consider that seeing a Hypnotherapist usually is not covered by insurance and will cost $100-$200 per session.

I am suffering from what is now known as CIC Or IBS C for over fift years. Linzess was a lifesaver until it stopped working . I was on all prescription medications known to mankind , miralax and magnesium citrate at least once a week! Found out about low FODMAP and a trained dietician. She mentioned hypnotherapy and searched the App Store. This program has done me so good, and I am very grateful! I love the information in the reading materials, the breathing exercises and the sessions. This team got me hooked. There were certain sessions like tailored for me! If people are willing to let go and trust hypnotherapy, it’s amazing. By now, I know how to handle my symptoms very well. I have learned a lot. All my best to the team for purring this program together.

This is an effective app offering and evidence based alternative to restrictive diets. Most importantly it is easy to fit into your lifestyle. You may not notice results if you over analyse - so stick with it a few weeks in you will notice that your symptoms have resolved. You will also notice other benefits like becoming more aware of your breathing and how powerful it is in relation to your health and well-being. Why don’t more people know about Nerva?!

I have had digestive issues all my adult life. If I got stressed, the first reaction was felt in my digestive system. This program helped me disconnect my gut from my brain and relax more. It’s a terrific program.

I found this very helpful- in times of serious COVID stress, this app provided me with fast (ie within a week) relief. I like the female voice, the guided meditations/ hypnosis scripts are just the ideal length - usually 16 minutes: enough to have time to relax into it, not so long that I wouldn’t do it because ‘I don’t have time’. It’s on the expensive end for an app, but as the add said: same price as one psych consult, but as helpful as a number of sessions would be. I agree with that. And I’m a psych, so I do know what I’m talking about. I also like that it is a program that you just follow, a no brainer, no decision. to make, rather than having too much choice between options, which I find frazzling.

Just a massive thank you to everyone who help create the Nerva app. After 4 years of abdominal discomfort/ pain and bloating to the point that I did my own any trousers with buttons (only wore leggings and tracksuit bottoms!) my symptoms are now no longer an issue - I did not think this app would work for me but SO glad I tried it - would highly highly recommend ! I feel fab and am now wearing sports bras and trousers and my tummy is flat and pain free !!!! Could not be happier with the outcome- loved the education that comes along with the app to further my understanding of the GI tract and symptoms !!! 10/10 - very happy customer !!! I have completed the whole programme.

I’ve been suffering with IBS for decades. Stress and anxiety have always been a trigger for me and I really was focusing on my symptoms all day, nervous about eating certain foods, and especially symptomatic traveling because of fear of not having a bathroom if needed. I’m finishing week 6 of the program and I don’t even think about my gut anymore! I have symptoms here and there but they really don’t bother me. Nothing short of amazing!!!

My IBS-D flared up due to stress and anxiety from the coronavirus, and I came across Nerva while working/quarantining at home. It has really helped me to relax and my symptoms have improved greatly! I'm on week 5, but I want to continue my daily hypnotherapy beyond the 6-week program because I feel it's that beneficial to my well-being.

This app has really worked for me, calmed gastric symptoms during a difficult time. love the imagery used and the presenters voice is just right for a hypnosis tape. Only reason I hadn’t given 5 stars is that you can’t skip the intro after the first listen - other apps allow this.

I thought this app was somewhat helpful, but could have offered a lot more for the price. The informational sections were pretty basic, and I would have liked to have more different recordings, or at least the option to move ahead sooner. I overall enjoyed the meditations, but they would be better if they were more descriptive- I would find myself trying to figure out the transitions, which was distracting (like how did I get to the river in the distance in just a few steps?). What I’m really upset about right now is that I was charged $75 for an auto-renewal I didn’t know about. I thought I had just signed up for 3 months!!

The hypnosis would not play. I submitted a help ticket and was told to uninstall and reinstall and to log out and back in. Neither fixed the issue. I tried my iPad and had the same issue. I was told we don’t usually have this problem, sorry - cancel your subscription so you don’t get charged. I appreciate that but that’s not tech support. I was very excited to try this to relieve my symptoms 🙁 so I’m very disappointed.

£7 for an audio clip (£84/12w). Trial period not long enough - have not been able to use due to iPad failure. Symptoms cleared up on their own so do not need this, and want to cancel a few days out of the trial. Have still been charged £84 for 12 weekly audio clips lasting circa 10 minutes, Apple refuses to refund, WARNING - Beyond the free trial, you pay £84 every 12 weeks - extremely expensive.

Medical Practitioner Testimonials

Pelvic Health Physioptherapist

Australia

“I see a large number of functional gut issues, and had heard about the strength of the work being done at Monash University around IBS. I began sharing Nerva with my patients because it had a good evidence base, strong testimonials from users and low risks attached - in addition to being cheaper than the cost of a single in-person session. I will walk patients through the website and the app in an appointment, email them a link and then organise review appointments to check in on their progress through the program.”

Naturopath

Australia

"I recommend Nerva to my patients as an adjunct to the treatment I provide - it helps with the mental side of IBS. I find if a patient addresses the mental side as well as diet and nutrition, their results are usually quicker and more sustainable. I was aware of the value of hypnotherapy for IBS, but trained hypnotherapists with a focus on gut issues are hard to find and expensive to access. Nerva is a convenient and cost-effective solution. There's an increasing awareness of Nerva among my patient base already. Usually, I'll discuss it with patients in a session, then ask them to access it via their app store. Patients find the Nerva app easy to use and the feedback is positive."

Within the Nerva app, patients report their symptoms are...

70%

of Nerva Users report a clinical improvement in their overall IBS symptoms after finishing the program.

60%

of Nerva Users report a clinically significant improvement in abdominal pain after finishing the program.

57%

of Nerva Users report a clinical improvement in stool consistency after finishing the program.
