Nerva is the easiest way to learn to manage your IBS symptoms at home, without symptom tracking or diet-change. Developed by doctors, Nerva helps you rewire your gut-brain connection with a 6-week psychology-based program.

Nerva uses the most effective psychological approach to IBS relief: gut-directed hypnotherapy. Clinically proven in a study at Monash University (creators of the low FODMAP diet), this approach was found to be just as effective as their gold-standard elimination diet for both food and stress-triggered symptoms.

How does it work?

Gut-directed hypnotherapy can teach you how to use your brain to ignore pain signals from your gut. Less signals, less flare-ups. You also learn powerful techniques that can help you manage flare-ups and take back control from IBS.

With Nerva, it possible to:
• Eat the foods you love without worry
• Be free from chronic pain and discomfort
• Go to work and socialize with friends without fear and anxiety
• Feel confident in your own skin with an un-bloated belly
• Travel stress-free while not having to map out toilets or be worried about having an IBS flare up
• Enjoy a happy sex life without fear of embarrassment

Very helpful

I found this very helpful- in times of serious COVID stress, this app provided me with fast (ie within a week) relief. I like the female voice, the guided meditations/ hypnosis scripts are just the ideal length - usually 16 minutes: enough to have time to relax into it, not so long that I wouldn’t do it because ‘I don’t have time’. It’s on the expensive end for an app, but as the add said: same price as one psych consult, but as helpful as a number of sessions would be. I agree with that. And I’m a psych, so I do know what I’m talking about. I also like that it is a program that you just follow, a no brainer, no decision. to make, rather than having too much choice between options, which I find frazzling.

Great App

I have ADHD and find meditations sometimes very hard to follow, this is one of the rare cases that wasn’t the case! The meditation/hypnotism was great and the voice used for it is relaxing, calm and clear.

I am only on my first few days of my first week so i have not been able to see any results yet as expected, but i’m confident this method will improve my situation

the only negative for me is the price, as a student i will struggle for afford this but it is worth the cost for the benefits and improvement in quality of life I could achieve eventually

Overpriced and misleading

I got charged without having the opportunity of choosing the best subscription for me, and without any reminder of the end of the trial period. There are always the same six tracks repeating and the articles are quite generic. For the amount they charge I would’ve expected more insightful and deeper resources. One of the ‘psychological’ tips they give is ‘if you have bad thoughts think about something else’. I think most people are aware of this already and the point is not distraction but how to divert to a different thought. It’s more about strategies than ‘think about something else’, which I’m sure plenty of people try doing, regardless of the issue at hand. I didn’t get any benefit from this program, just felt incredibly frustrated and think the amount charged is completely disproportionate to the service given.
