German study provides more evidence: hypnosis safe and effective for IBS

One of the highlights of this German study was a strong effectiveness of medical hypnosis for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, among other applications. A key message conclusion from the study states:

Robust evidence (from meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials including at least 400 patients) of the efficacy of medical hypnosis exists for reduction of pain and emotional stress, duration of interventions, drug consumption during medical interventions, and reduction of irritable bowel symptoms.
