Dr. Kogan shares the alternative treatments available for irritable bowel syndrome.
Irritable bowel disease is 50 percent an emotionally-driven disorder. People with irritable bowel disease should become very well acquainted with a guided imagery therapy, self-administered hypnosis. They should be able to perform it on the regular basis and create a very restful, peaceful environment for their gut on a daily basis.
People with these diseases are especially susceptible to stress and its side effects, and if we approach this medication, pardon me, this disease only with medication, we are only treating the surface of it. We have to approach it from the root, and that’s where the stress management is so important.
