Irritable Bowel Syndrome
How to manage Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)? - IBS Therapy in London and Online
The gut-brain connection
The gut is our second brain. It’s the body’s first line of defense between us and the outside world.
It’s a complex system, home of living organisms, bacteria, viruses, and fungi called the microbiome.
Stress, anxiety, and trauma are significant factors in unbalancing the gut and producing IBS symptoms.
Stress and anxiety attack the microbiome.
Trauma is freezing the stomach and stopping it from functioning properly.
How can the therapyforlondoners approach help you?
We work on your stress level, lower your anxiety, and get rid of traumas so your stomach can function properly.
We calm your mind and activate the parasympathetic brain (the “chill out brain” ) which is responsible for the whole digestive system.
A well-functioning parasympathetic brain = A well-functioning digestive system
We create more serotonin- 95 % of serotonin (the happy hormone) is created in the gut. When we have a proper flow of serotonin, we are happy and it is easy to cope with life.
Leaky gut = less serotonin = low mood
Proper serotonin flow = Good mood and more happiness
therapyforlondoners - My story with IBS
I am truly passionate about IBS as I suffered from it for more than 10 years. I was afraid to eat out with friends, I checked the city’s toilet map before planning a day out and felt so ashamed many times. Traveling on a plane or bus meant no food for me as I was so afraid that there would be times when I wouldn’t be able to use the toilet. I made sure that I had a minimum of an hour before an interview so I could use the toilet many times at the café close by.
I have now overcome IBS, enjoy eating out, no longer check the loo map and always eat on the plane 😊
I can help you to achieve the same.
