Way of the future: new research shows at-home app for gut-directed ...  NewsMaker

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common disorders of gut–brain interaction worldwide, estimated to affect around 15% of the global population. With symptoms leading to a decreased quality of life along with high medical costs, IBS is a significant health care burden.

New research published reveals that app-delivered gut-directed hypnotherapy (GDH) is proving highly successful at helping people manage their IBS symptoms. The research found that 64% of sufferers reported a reduction in symptoms after using the mobile app-delivered GDH program; similar rates to that seen in in-person studies.
