Welcome. As a parent of a child who is struggling with irritable bowel syndrome, functional abdominal pain, or other digestive issues, are you feeling frustrated?
Are you at times annoyed with your child because they are not going to school?
And perhaps even a bit discouraged because they are unable to be with their friends and participate in their favorite activities?
You’re not alone! And neither are they. In fact, between 5% and 20% of kids have IBS.
It is estimated that between 6% and 14% of all teenagers suffer from some form of IBS and many of them are teenage girls dealing with digestive issues & gut pain. Many teenagers are experiencing anxiety-induced IBS. Unfortunately, anxiety and stress can intensify the symptoms of IBS in teenagers.
20% of adults have IBS as well.
Now, as frustrating and difficult as this is for you as a parent – especially if IBS is new to you – I know from working with hundreds of people just like you over the past 25 years that these feelings are due to the fact that you love your child so much and want them to succeed, so they’re able to get back to enjoying a good quality of life.
The good news is, even if you feel like you’ve tried everything… There is a solution to empower your child to not only gain much better control over their IBS symptoms, but also over worry and anxiety at the same time.
When this happens, which could be quicker than you think, they will have even more self-confidence and self-esteem.
So, what can you do to help your child overcome these problems?
Controlling Your Gut Feelings is the first online video program developed by an internationally recognized expert in medical hypnosis and board-certified, Stanford-trained pediatrician for children and adults with gut issues (such as irritable bowel syndrome and stomach pain) and related anxiety.
This program provides a comprehensive combination
of these techniques:
The goal is to teach how to harness the power of your mind to relieve pain and anxiety, and regain control over your body and improve quality of life.
After 20 years of experience treating kids and young adults with IBS, I’ve accepted that as wonderful as Western medicine can be, it does not provide the solution for my patients.
The Controlling Your Gut Feelings program incorporates the three techniques that I have discovered in my practice work best to treat these conditions:
My driving philosophy is always to discover which treatment works best for each patient, and I have witnessed firsthand how effective these approaches are.
Not only does medical hypnosis help patients manage their anxiety, it is also extremely effective in treating the physical symptoms of these gut-related symptoms, such as:
The combination of medical hypnosis with powerful motivational tools and CBT (the gold standard for treating anxiety) helps patients achieve meaningful relief much more quickly than other approaches – and it’s proven by science.
That’s why this program won’t have any of the usual solutions you might be used to seeing. It’s a completely different approach. And it’s an effective one.
A randomized controlled trial for children with IBS or FAP (functional abdominal pain) showed:
*Hypnotherapy Group: 85% of patients were in remission.
Standard Medical Treatment Group: Only 25% of patients were in remission.
* Vlieger, A., Menko-Frankenhuis, C., Walfkamp, S.C.S., Tromp, E. & Benninga, M. (2007) Hypnotherapy for children with functional abdominal pain or irritable bowel syndrome: A randomized controlled trial. Gastroenterology (November)133,5,1430-1436
There is no other solution that works so quickly and produces long-lasting results. Evidence-based medical research shows that medication doesn’t work in treating gut and anxiety-related conditions.
The good news is that combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with medical hypnosis has proven to be the most effective treatment approach for these problems—and this program provides both strategies.
The goal of this program is to become empowered to help yourself. Instead of relying on medications, doctors, therapists, or products, you will learn skills that put you in control of your pain and that can be applied to countless other life challenges.
Your relief and self-confidence will skyrocket after discovering you can control your symptoms and anxiety and determine your quality of life.
Your child can learn and practice on their own—no parental involvement needed!—in the comfort of their home and on their favorite device: phone, tablet, or computer.
Your program fee provides you unlimited access to skills you can use to control both pain and anxiety and to achieve goals.
Why continue to spend hundreds of dollars for medications, therapy, copays, homeopathy, and other products that simply don’t work? This program is the simpler, more effective, less-expensive solution.
Your life just got a lot simpler. After watching the program videos, you only need 15 minutes daily to practice the techniques and achieve real results quickly.
Your child may surprise you, his doctors, and therapists—and even their self!—at how quickly he gets better.
Your child won’t be reliant on a device. Many new mindful and CBT apps require your kid to check in
or use the app throughout the day to collect data. NOT with this program! Your child simply watches a handful of short videos, practices the new skills, and completes the brief homework with pencil and paper.
With growing concerns about young people’s exposure to screens, this relatively low-tech solution is a welcome alternative.
As wonderful as Western medicine can be, it did not provide the solution for any of my patients with IBS, functional abdominal pain, functional dyspepsia, abdominal migraine, or cyclical vomiting syndrome.
So I embarked on a journey of extensive research, intensive training, and careful work with my own patients, and discovered an approach that uses the foundational and transformational strategies of medical
hypnosis, TEAM-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and powerful
The results my patients and I achieved gained attention nationally and internationally, and I began lecturing around the world, teaching other clinicians about the Controlling Your Gut Feelings approach.
I have complete confidence this program will provide the skills needed to control symptoms, thoughts, and emotions… to achieve a higher quality of health and life. I can’t wait for you to begin this life-changing experience!
