The IBHC can help you reduce symptoms associated with various chronic medical conditions, or help you cope better with these conditions. A few of these are: sleep, high blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, chronic pain, and irritable bowel syndrome.

The IBHC can also help you and your PCM develop skills to effectively manage emotional and behavioral difficulties such as: anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression and stress.
