Cancer is partly an emotional illness.
Long before cancer takes hold in the body it’s been eating away at the mind for some time as an emotion such as deep hurt, resentment, fear, grief or hatred. While medicine has made stunning advances in the last century, it’s still not very good at resolving emotions.
Hypnosis is the perfect tool to work alongside modern medicine in order to resolve emotions. Once emotions are resolved, modern medicine often works even faster at healing the body and greatly increases the likelihood of a return to health.
Hypnosis can also help the cancer patient in the following ways:
- Reduce pain
- Give relief of nausea and vomiting secondary to chemotherapy
- Provide relief from cancer-related fatigue
- Reduce the intensity of hot flashes
- An effective treatment option for cancer patients suffering from sleep problems
Hypnosis is a viable option for cancer patients, who, once trained in self-hypnosis, may employ these techniques to manage myriad symptoms. It can also be effective when dealing with affected parties, such as family members, loved ones, and friends of the cancer patient.
