How does Nerva work?

Nerva uses evidence-based hypnotherapy techniques, delivered via an app, to help you learn automatic skills that can help 'fix' the miscommunication between your gut and brain. The program was designed by Dr Simone Peters, who ran a clinical trial with Monash University that found her approach worked just as well as the Low FODMAP diet.

Why try hypnotherapy for IBS?

Hypnotherapy targets the source of the problem: oversensitive nerves in the gut.  

Hypnotherapy teaches you how to address this miscommunication between the gut and brain.

Studies* have shown hypnotherapy provides long-lasting IBS management.

Why hypnotherapy for IBS?

Things like stress and food trigger IBS symptoms due to a miscommunication between your gut and brain.

Gut-directed hypnotherapy can help you learn how to calm down your gut-brain connection unconsciously.

A calmer gut and mind can can help you manage your symptoms.

How does hypnotherapy really work?

Hypnosis involves entering a state of absorbed attention where you become hyper-focused on specific stimuli (such as a feeling or a memory) led by suggestions from a hypnotherapist.
 
During hypnosis, suggestions bypass the critical mind allowing you to subconsciously 'fix' the miscommunication between your gut and brain (how your brain and gut send and receive nerve impulses). These suggestions teach you automatic skills that can help you self-manage IBS symptoms.
