It is believed that stress can lead to a reduced effectiveness of one’s immune system; lowering the body’s potential to counter cancer cells. A number of people become stressed upon learning that they have cancer and often find it hard to lead a relaxed life afterwards. Hypnotherapy is an effective tool for bringing about relaxation of both the body and the mind. In hypnotherapy, the cancer patient is encouraged to consider his or her immune system and the treatment as being stronger and powerful compared to the cancer cells. This helps reduce stress hence enhance the body’s ability to counter the cancer cells.
In most instances, the fact that one is suffering from cancer can dominate his or her thoughts for quite some time. The person may develop a feeling of over-reliance on other people to an extent that the person feels he or she has lost control of his or her life. Hypnosis can help such a person re-gain self-confidence and empowerment in dealing with others. It also helps the individual to create and focus on goals he or she needs to achieve in the future, including his or her recovery. Studies indicate establishing a goal in hypnotic trance results in a much better motivation.
There are many side effects associated with cancer treatment which can be quite disturbing. For instance, a number of people may experience anticipatory nausea when going for chemotherapy. Since it comes about prior to and not after treatment, it is likely to have a psychological underlying cause. Hypnosis as a complementary treatment for cancer helps eliminate or lessen such side effects.
