Professor Roland Valori, a gastroenterologist at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, in Gloucester, said he has used hypnotherapy with success on his patients.
In a podcast to launch Frontline Gastroenterology, a new medical journal, he said experience of the first 100 patients treated with hypnotherapy, nine out of ten showed significant improvement in their symptoms.
In four out of ten the condition cleared up completely while the remainder said they felt more in control.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a long term disorder of the digestive system causing pain, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.
Prof Valori said: “To be frank, I have never looked back.”
Hypnotherapy puts the patient in a state of altered consciousness, or trance, and the therapist can then direct deeper levels of consciousness to think differently or help patients to cope better.
