Did you know?

Over-the-counter and prescription medicines reduce symptoms in fewer than 50% of IBS patients.1 That’s why many people living with IBS are looking for more from their current treatment plan. What if you could treat your IBS pain on your own terms?

For nearly four decades, gut-directed hypnotherapy has helped patients find relief from IBS.2 The problem is, few therapists are trained in gut-directed hypnotherapy and therefore patients don’t have access to treatment.3 Now Regulora puts gut-directed hypnotherapy into the palm of your hand.

Regulora is the first and only app cleared by the FDA in the U.S. for abdominal pain caused by IBS, and Health Canada has authorized Launchit DTx to provide Regulora in Canada.

Regulora® is a digital therapeutic intended to provide behavioral therapy through gut-directed hypnotherapy for adults 22 years of age and older who have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Regulora is indicated as a 3-month treatment for patients with abdominal pain due to IBS and is intended to be used together with other IBS treatments. Regulora is intended for patients who speak and read English. Regulora may not be appropriate for patients with mental or physical impairment that would prevent interacting with a mobile video application. Regulora may not be appropriate for patients with evidence of intestinal illness that better explains IBS symptoms such as celiac disease or inflammatory bowel disease. Regulora should not be used in lieu of your current IBS medication or therapy. In a clinical trial of Regulora, side effects were low. About 1% of patients experienced abdominal pain, constipation, fatigue, or headache which was thought to be related to using Regulora..
