I was reading a medical book that had a section on flatulance and was surprised when one of the treatments suggested was medical hypnotherepy. Does anyone know why? What is the link between the brain and gas production? It was once suggested to me that I should try medical hypnotherepy for the pain, if it could reduce the gas I would be very willing to give it ago.

There is no connection between the brain and gas production in the colon.

One possibility is that they are thinking of someone who swallows frequently (for whatever reason) and that would cause more air than normal to enter the esophagus. The hypnosis would be stop that.
