The International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders states that while hypnosis is not a cure-all, "Research has found that hypnotherapy may help improve the primary symptoms of IBS. It may also help relieve other symptoms suffered by many people with IBS such as nausea, fatigue, backache, and urinary problems. Hypnotherapy appears to offer symptomatic, psychological, and physiological benefit." They go on to say that research shows that "Research on the long-term follow up of patients who have benefited shows that after a period of between 1 and 5 years, most remain well with many requiring no further medication at all." As such, while it may be more expensive in the short term they believe that it's long term effectiveness makes it worthwhile.
