IBS treatment Information Doctors May be Missing – Now YOU have it!!
- Most likely that title got your attention because you are researching the latest effective treatments for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and its symptoms.
- Whether you are newly diagnosed, or have been suffering with this condition for years, you want IBS treatment information that is researched and straight-forward.
- While IBS is labeled as a functional disorder, medical research has shown physical differences between IBS patients and those that do not suffer from this condition.
- The pain, discomfort and symptoms you feel are all real, they are measurable, and IBS is not “all in the mind” as some are misguided to believe.
- You may have already investigated the facts about the clinically researched treatment method that has proven overall to be extremely successful, especially in addressing long-term, severe refractory IBS, particularly in those IBS patients who have tried “everything else” with little or no results.
- Most likely, your gastroenterologist or physician has prescribed various medications depending upon your IBS symptoms.
Well, perhaps these routine IBS treatments do not work because IBS has a strong brain-gut connection!
How many times do you worry about being near a restroom / bathroom?
How many times does ‘just thinking about having to leave the house’ actually brings on IBS symptoms?
Physicians are aware of the brain-gut connection in IBS treatment but seem powerless to address it, so they continue with IBS treatment protocols of medications, elimination diets, and fiber – and for a great many IBS sufferers, these IBS treatment options find the relief is only short term – if at all.
But there is a method – a highly effective and researched IBS treatment method, that is available to you right now.
Due to time constraints, and patient demands, some gastroenterologists, general practitioners and family physicians may not always have full knowledge of the vast scope of the research on this IBS treatment method.
Those physicians who are aware of this research information, may be hesitant to suggest this method because they do not have access to professionals who are properly trained in gut-specific protocols or are unaware of the other available IBS treatment options for their IBS patients.
Since 1984, there have been at least 50 published research articles in medical professional journals confirming years of clinical trials showing the efficacy – that is, the successful use – of gut-directed or gut-specific clinical hypnotherapy protocols in the remediation of IBS symptoms and related symptoms.
Now don’t get upset.
We are not talking about “hypnosis” as you may know it – stage hypnosis. Not at all. This is medical researched clinical hypnotherapy IBS treatment. Interesting note: The word hypnosis was coined by a member of the medical profession ~ Scottish Surgeon James Braid in 1841
When IBS sufferers first hear that hypnotherapy may help them as an IBS treatment option, they may become a little indignant.
The reason for this is because they may feel that hypnotherapy implies there is something wrong with their mind or again, as so inappropriately termed “all in the head.”
Nothing could be further from the truth.
IBS is a functional disorder that has a strong brain-gut connection. The nerves that affect the gut and motility are closely connected to the brain. These connections are faulty, as the nerves in the brain miscommunicate with the nerves in the gut, and motility is altered.
Back in 1984, Dr. Peter Whorwell of Manchester England, worked with his IBS patients using clinical hypnotherapy and was able to reduce their symptoms. Since that time, all the studies that have been published have used various protocols that are not readily available to the public. Another reason why physicians do not readily suggest hypnosis as an IBS treatment.
Research shows repeatedly that gut-specific clinical hypnotherapy can significantly reduce or even eliminate all of the various IBS symptoms –
- Motility Dysfunction
- Alternation between Diarrhea and Constipation
- Abdominal and general pain, cramping or “spasms”
- Bloating, gas, stomach distress
- “Not empty” feeling
- Urgency, rushing to the toilet
- “Sweating,” shaky or wobbly feeling
And related symptoms of:
- Anxiety or worry over when the next IBS ‘attack’ or episode will occur, proximity of toilets while away from home, etc. The Anxiety – IBS Attack – Worry – Stress Cycle
- Altered sleep patterns
- Reluctance to leave the house; travel restrictions
All of these symptoms incorporate the mind-body or brain-gut connection so prevalent in IBS.
But now there is an IBS treatment option, and it is readily available to you.
And that IBS treatment option is the IBS Audio Program 100® – an easy to use, at-home treatment program, complete with full on-going support provided. Our IBS treatment program is available on CD set, or immediate MP3 download.
For over a decade, we have done very little formal marketing or major advertising for the IBS Audio Program 100® preferring to use word-of-mouth referrals between patients, physicians and gastroenterologists, as well as IBS self-help support groups and various affiliate websites to share this valuable IBS treatment information.
The IBS Audio Program 100® is a treatment program using a gut-specific protocol of clinical hypnotherapy and has been used successfully in private homes since 1998.
This highly effective IBS treatment protocol was first developed and perfected in the clinical setting, beginning in 1991 by clinical hypnotherapist Michael Mahoney of Cheshire England, who was named number one in the listing of the top ten clinical hypnotherapists in the UK. To learn more about Michael, click here
The IBS Audio Program 100® has been recommended or featured in several books including:
First Year IBS: An Essential Guide for the Newly Diagnosed
IBS for Dummies
- IBS Chat
- Eating for IBS
- Understanding Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Learning from Wonderful Lives: Lessons from the Study of Well-Being
and finally, a comprehensive book entitled,
- The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth About What Treatments Work and Why, a book which has endorsements from Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Barry Sears and Dr. Christiane Northrup, among others. And while we may take a bit of issue with the term “cure,” as there is no cure for IBS at this time, including our program, we are honored to be included in this book as the only listing for clinical hypnotherapy.
By the way, Michael was for the most part, unaware of the inclusion of information about the IBS Audio Program 100® and his work in these books, with the exception of First Year IBS, for which he was approached and interviewed.
So are you still reading?
If so, then learn how the IBS Audio Program 100 can help…
Even as caring and well-intentioned as your gastroenterologist or physician may be, you are here, so that means that your IBS still has not been addressed to your satisfaction.
We speak with IBS patients all over the United States, the UK, Europe and other countries as well.
We know IBS – we have heard thousands of IBS stories and every variant of the condition.
We know not only all about the diets, supplements, prescription drugs, OTC medications including the ones we mentioned before, but also your emotional frustration, embarrassment, anger, and sometimes utter despair – that you are going through.
IBS is one of the most under-rated, neglected, and ridiculed conditions there is. Living with IBS is difficult, restrictive and affects the sufferers family and friends too.
So consider something different – something that thousands of other IBS patients have done before you – quietly, and one-by-one, over the course of a mere 100 days (compared to YEARS and years of suffering), you are going to use a structured process to aid you to control your IBS symptoms and reduce them, gently, gradually, and with very, very little effort on your part. Our IBS treatment program is designed for you and your IBS symptoms.
Thousands of long-term, severe refractory IBS patients have tried this IBS treatment as a last resort after all else failed – and others newly diagnosed, skipped the frustration, and found relief much sooner.
And this was accomplished through the IBS Audio Program 100® for Adults and Teens.
In addition to the IBS Audio Program 100® for Adults and Teens, Michael also has successfully researched and developed the IBS Audio Program 60® for Children Ages 8 – 13 which is highly effective for those little ones who suffer from this condition.
The IBS Audio Programs contain recorded audio sessions of clinical hypnotherapy as well as informational sessions – each session is about ½ hour. The assigned session for the day is listened to according to a specific listening schedule designed for optimal success. During the 100 days the schedule gives 20 days non listening too, this is also part of the process as these day allow the subconscious to assimilate the new information, suggestions and considerations made to you in the program.
It is easy, pleasant, and virtually requires NO effort on the part of the IBS sufferer, other than to set aside time to listen, and to try to avoid reading or researching about IBS while doing the program as it is geared to helping the sufferer move away from IBS symptoms patterns.
Does it work?
Yes. For the vast majority of people who complete the program, follow the simple instructions and are faithful to the listening schedule, the program has been shown to greatly reduce or eliminate IBS and related symptoms. It is NOT a cure, it is not a panacea. Most users are those who tried it as a last resort – and this was the treatment that worked!
A few comments from happy users of the IBS Audio Program 100® ~
From Lana G in Canada~
“I really just wanted to write in to say THANK YOU for an amazing program! I completed the IBS audio 100 series less than a week ago, and it has changed my life.
I have had extreme issues with IBS since I was diagnosed at 8 years old–22 years ago now…I now have days where I am completely pain-free and I just cannot thank Michael Mahoney enough for his amazing program.
I would never have thought that laying down and listening to a CD for half an hour a day could make me feel so much better. Some of the issues that I have had basically all my life are almost completely gone. And I know that I will continue to improve, I’m so excited for my future and doing the things I’ve been avoiding because of the IBS.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”
From Jo in Worthing UK~
I wanted to send my very heartfelt thanks to you for the life changing effect your IBS audio programme has had for me. I completed the 100 day programme a few weeks ago now and I cannot believe that I actually feel free of IBS!
I really had reached a very low point after suffering, and it really is suffering, for over 10 years. I read about your CD’s on an IBS forum and to be honest if I had not been feeling quite so desperate I probably would have dismissed it as I never realised the true potential and healing power of hypnotherapy.
Well, it has amazed me, I started to feel better in the second week and my scores went from 8,9 and 10’s to 1, 2 and 3’s by day 27, I really couldn’t believe it. Now I would say I am consistently at 0 or 1 and very occasionally on a bad day, (which I’ve had about 4 of in over 3 months were it was pretty much a daily occurrence) it might reach a 3.
It has truly changed my daily existence. I am soo much happier and calmer and enjoying life far more!
My partner has commented that I am like a different person, the real me! Thank you for your efforts in developing this and I cannot sing your praises highly enough. I found myself telling someone on the street about it the other day as I know it can help so many people.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Jo, age 38 and reborn!!!
From Patty in Pontiac, Illinois, USA ~
I have suffered with IBS for many years and I’m pretty sure I have tried everything that was ever suggested for relief. I spent nights searching the internet to find any different solutions to try. I tried diets, supplements, even crazier diets, lots of different medication, but nothing seemed to work for very long.
I had limited my social life to nearly nothing, as I was too afraid to go to far from home. My husband was always mad or disappointed in me because I wouldn’t participate in any outside interests.
Finally, one night while I was searching the internet, I was on the site ‘ibsgroup.org’ and one entry started with the words – “If you have tried everything else with no relief, you have to try this”. I read on and the woman described your IBS Audio Program 100. I went to the site, read all the information, then checked out your site and learned about you and your qualifications. I ordered the program and followed it faithfully.
I began to see positive results after two sessions. I have completed your program and have never felt better. I can not express to you the gratitude I feel for you giving me back my life.
Your audio tapes (CDs) helped me in all areas of my life, but it is such a great feeling to be amongst the “living” again. I can enjoy some of the food that I had given up and have no fear of eating out or attending social gatherings. I was even able to give up some of the medication that I had been taking for the stomach pain.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!. My next problem is that now that I can eat almost anything, I am gaining weight. Do you have an audio program for that, also?
Again, the words “thank you” do not come near encompassing the gratitude I feel for the relief you have given me.
Also from the UK ~
“Dear Healthy Audio,
Can you please pass this email to Michael Mahoney. I had been suffering with IBS for the longest time, when my daughter purchased the IBS Audio Program 100 for me. I was skeptical but she paid for it so I owed it to her, and myself to give it a try. And what a powerful message this is.
I could hardly believe it within the first week I was seeing changes and feeling better, I think I did after the first few days (that introduction is just so amazing) but I thought it may have just been me hoping it. Within a month I felt brilliant, by the end of the program it was such a relief to know I could feel so much better.
I finished the program 10 months ago, and I have never looked back. I found the content was excellent and the listening schedule was so easy to follow, and yet it kept me on track and it made so much sense too.
So Michael and all your team, thank you so much, from a very genuine and grateful user.
If you do a search on the internet, you will see that the IBS Audio Program 100® has over 10 years of positive feedback from users of our program. And you can read more patient success stories here (there are quite a few!):IBS Audio Program 100 Testimonials

IBS Audio Program 100® Irritable Bowel Syndrome treatment and hypnotherapy program
The IBS Audio program was ground breaking back in 1998 and remains so today and it is still leading the way as the years of received unsolicited feedback attest its benefits to many individuals.
It brings together the many years and experience of the author, Michael Mahoney who first started practice in 1986. Michael first began helping IBS patients in 1991 and still does so to this day in his medical centre based practice in Warrington Cheshire England as well as other office locations.
Michael realised all those years ago, that not only the physical symptoms of IBS are demanding and demoralising, but so too are the emotional aspects of IBS, the anxiety, the unspoken fear and dread, the lack of confidence and self esteem, and the worry about reduced memory and recall often experienced when emotional energies are drained. This program addresses and acknowledges what it is like for the IBS sufferer when the lack of interest in physical relationships becomes the norm, it is difficult just coping with everyday life in pain, and the dread and the inability of others to understand what it takes to get through the day, physically and emotionally.
This program takes into account how very difficult it can be for the IBS sufferer to go out, to go to work, to socialise, to have friends over and the many other emotional aspects many IBS sufferers have to cope with. And all these have an emotional cost, you manage to cope the best way you can but sooner or later the suffering can become so overwhelming that you know you must find another way to become better and get out from under the IBS and related draining symptoms. And all this is experienced in an ever increasing uncertain economic downturn, which will bring its own set of additional demands to be met, problems to be surmounted, pressures to bear. IBS is not easy at the best of times to deal with, let alone now.

Mike, Just a quick e-mail to say THANK YOU for the creating the IBS 100 CDs.
As an emergency nurse by background I have been a believer in traditional scientific medicine and wary of “alternative” therapies – how my beliefs have changed over the last few months!!!! I have had IBS since I was 19. I am now 30 years of age and over the last 11 years my symptoms have got progressively worse and I ended up feeling quite anxious about trips away (not just overnight but just to the local shopping centre!). I was reading the reviews on the bulletin board with some skepticism (not a believer in miracle cures!!!!) but I was at the end of the road having tried many conventional treatment options! I have also just returned from a 4 week trip to Japan, Australia and Hong Kong – in the past I would be popping back to the hotel after every meal and eyeing up public toilets wherever we went – this time I ate LOTS of food and forgot about my IBS for 95% of the time!!!! Really I just want to say thank you for your help and also for not dismissing this problem. I am very very grateful!!! Thanks. From Cacti ~ UK
