How can hypnotherapy help with Cancer? For a start we are not suggesting that hypnosis will cure cancer and yet we can do much to help towards that end and much recent research suggests that your thinking can affect your health on a cellular and even genetic level.
If you consider some of the problems that hypnotherapy is known to help with you will start to see how we can help with Cancer: Anxiety, Depression, Fear, Insomnia, Pain, Self Confidence, Stress, even stopping Smoking…
Cancer is one of those illnesses that need to be treated holistically because it involves the mind, body and spirit of the patient. The doctors will focus on the body but a greater part of any possible cure is with the patient’s mind and spirit. Neither the doctors nor the treatments cure anything – the body itself does that. Take a moment to think about that. The body has produced this illness itself. No one ‘catches’ Cancer and, although there are things that will make it more likely that you get Cancer, none of them ‘give’ you Cancer. There are people who have smoked all their lives who don’t get lung cancer, people who spend every day out in the sun, with little protection, who don’t get skin cancer and women who are genetically highly likely to get breast cancer who never do. It is something within the body which seems to flick that switch to produce cancerous cells. Conventional treatment is aimed at killing the cancerous cells. Is anyone working on flicking the switch back off?
There is now sufficient data to show that there is a connection between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems of the human body. Simply put this means that stress and anxiety can lead to actual health changes, and vice versa. Hypnotherapy can work to reduce stress and anxiety, help speed recovery after chemotherapy, surgery etc. and provide guided visualisation of the immune system to help boost its effects.
Cancer and Regression Therapy
Some of the first thoughts and feelings people have when they are faced with a diagnosis of Cancer are “Why me?” “What did I do to deserve this” “Am I going to die?” Anger and worry and sadness are natural reactions but they can hinder the healing process. I have found that Past Life Regression can be extremely helpful in coping with these worries and emotions.
This is part of the spiritual healing that can give patients a different perspective of their illness. Whether it is the understanding that Cancer is not a punishment for any wrongdoing, or the realisation that there is a purpose – and it is your purpose, your plan and your learning. As a part of palliative care it can help towards an acceptance of the cycle of life and death and, as part of the healing process, it can be enlightening to experience the realisation that you have lived before, and may have connections with people you know in this life over one or many lifetimes.
Cancer touches nearly everyone’s life these days and I am no exception having lost both my parents and other beloved members of my family. For this reason I give concessionary rates to sufferers and will arrange to visit them where necessary.
