Go with your GUT FEELING!

Go with your GUT FEELING!

It is well known that humans have a powerful Gut-Brain Axis which is bi-directional. The gut (and particularly the gut microbiome) has a significant effect on the brain. The brain and nervous system have a significant effect on the gut.

Interestingly, placebo treatments have very high efficacy in gastrointestinal conditions.

Also interesting, is that gut-centered hypnotherapy, can have tremendous effects in patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) AND Inflammatory Bowel Disease (such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis). My favorite patient recommendation in this realm, is to try an app called Nerva from Mindset Health which guides patients in a 6 week program. The committment is about 15 minutes a day. I have seen tremendous improvements in many of my patients.

Absolutely recommend!!
