You think there nervous about hypnotherapy.
Obviously, they didn't put to much research into this as it does work on some of the root causes in IBS. Really the main part of IBS viseral sensitvity and calming the emotional centers of the brain which I just post info on in the Brain imaging thread. It also has the highest success rate statistally then any treatment out there. LOL"However, it is important to bear in mind that the underlying cause of IBS is not treated using these techniques and that they can often be expensive." This is a flat out misleading statement and false.
Good to see they are recognizing it though and that they liked my website design."I have heard that alternative treatments, such as hypnotherapy and stress management may help IBS symptoms. Is this true? Some studies have shown that hypnotherapy and stress management may help a subgroup of IBS patients to feel better and therefore they can be useful treatment options. However, it is important to bear in mind that the underlying cause of IBS is not treated using these techniques and that they can often be expensive. http://www.ibs-register.co.uk is a useful website to look at if you are considering exploring alternative therapies. The site contains a register of IBS specialists specialising in hypnotherapy across the UK. It also lists all up-to-date information on IBS and complementary therapies." "they can often be expensive."Mike tapes are cheaper then a life time of taking zelnorm and when I say that having nothing agaisnt taking zelnorm what so ever, but how expensive is that really?I can see where they would not want to push this however since they have there agenda, I only wish they would post more accuraste info on it.------------------Moderator of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Anxiety and Hypnotherapy forumI work with Mike and the IBS Audio Program. www.ibshealth.com www.ibsaudioprogram.com

As you know, I was helped a lot by Zelnorm and am looking forward to taking it again, but have to agree with you. Mike's tapes are the most effective approach for dealing with IBS that's currently available. Even when I get the Zelnorm, I'll continue with Mike's tapes. It's not an either or or, but BOTH!

Well as far as I can see you can't get a bigger compliment than that!
If they're nervous about it - then they obviously see hypnotherapy as a realistic and viable threat to their products/sales!Otherwise - why mention it?Eric/Mike! You have Novartis quaking in their boots.....he he he

Hi All,Marilyn, Your right we have a good solid site with accurate info, and a good webmaster too
GailsusanThank you for your comments. Your right, my program can be used alone or used to complement medication. As you say it does not have to be one or the other. It can be both. Clair,This is indeed a compliment
Perhaps this is the first step to the drug companies looking to work with us rather than see us as a threat.
Thanks for your comments.As an aside, I recently contacted a drug company to enquire if they would be interested in supporting an IBS support group I am planning, or my program to help in further research ( which I am doing anyway, but out of limited funds that my practice can afford ). Initially they were interested, then said no !! It was their loss. I wonder if Novartis reads this board
Thank you all for your support and feedback.Best RegardsMike
