Hypnotherapy for IBS seems to work by lowering the general level of anxiety, lowering the perception of pain and discomfort (which is related to anxiety) and also by directing positive images and suggestions to the gut.

The ENS can function separately from the main central nervous system and is connected by special large nerve fibres to the brain.
