What is CBT and
 How Does it Help IBS?

Mahana’s Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is gut-directed psychotherapy (GDP) that improves IBS symptom severity by targeting the cognitive factors known to drive symptoms. CBT is the most rigorously tested psychological treatment for IBS.

CBT is a safe, effective solution that works for all types of IBS (D, C & M).

Mahana enables you to empower all IBS patients with a treatment that has no known side effects.

The gut-brain axis is a contributing component to IBS symptomatology.

The gut-brain axis is a bidirectional communication system that links intestinal functions with the emotional and cognitive centers of the brain.
