Controlling Your Gut Feelings is an IBS natural treatment program originally developed for children and young adults, but effective at treating digestive issues for people of all ages

This program is a simple solution that produces real, lasting results (and peace of mind) using three proven techniques:

Medical Hypnosis

TEAM-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TEAM-CBT)​

Powerful Motivational Techniques

What’s Medical Hypnosis?

Did the word “hypnosis” make you skeptically raise your eyebrows? You’re not alone. Most people think of wacky hypnotists in capes and weird hats swinging a pocket watch in front of someone and telling them to cluck like a chicken. 

That is NOT what this is.

Medical hypnosis—also known as clinical hypnosis, self-hypnosis, visualization, and mental imagery—simply involves creating a highly  focused state of mind that allows you to access your internal ability to change a pattern of thinking and behaviors.

It is a learned skill that is strengthened with continued practice.

What is CBT?

In simplest terms, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT for short, is a set of therapeutic techniques that helps you change your thoughts, which helps you change your feelings and your behaviors. The belief is that your thoughts lead to feelings, which usually lead to actions. So by going back to the source—the thought—and replacing a negative one with a positive one, or figuring out a new way to look at something, your feelings and behaviors will likely change as well.

TEAM-CBT was developed by David Burns, MD. It is an evidence-based framework that can be used to enhance all schools of therapy. For more about TEAM-CBT, click here.

Negative thought > Negative feeling > NEGATIVE BEHAVIOR

So the goal of CBT techniques is to change this sequence to:

Negative thought > Positive thought > Positive feeling > POSITIVE BEHAVIOR

Cognitive Techniques

Cognitive therapeutic techniques focus on retraining your mind to achieve a specific goal. Some common examples include:

Behavioral Techniques

As the name implies, behavioral therapeutic techniques specifically address the actions that result from negative or anxious thoughts and feelings. These might include:

Motivational Techniques

These methods involve the clinician asking certain questions that help patients find their own internal reasons to become more open to change. Common motivational interviewing approaches include:
