A new 7-session private-pay Gut-Directed Hypnotherapy (GDH) program is being offered via Telemedicine by Dr. David Bowler. Chiefly intended for irritable bowel syndrome, it can be adapted for other functional gastro-intestinal disorders, using the validated peer-reviewed North Carolina protocol. Patients must have been appropriately evaluated and referral must include all relevant investigations and GI consults if available. Initial session is 60-90 minutes, subsequent ones 30-45 minutes, at approximately 2-week intervals.
A medical consultation, online or in person, to review the history and provide information will be arranged prior to the first GDH session.
Physicians and nurse practitioners can fax referrals to 1-844-820-7073.
