Hypnotherapy Directory has previously explored the use of hypnotherapy for cancer, but will today discuss the positive aspects of holistic therapies when specifically used with breast cancer.
Cancer is a relentless and tiring disease to battle against and a huge part of that fight is the way the mind connects to the body.
So much attention is given to the physical issues but what is often neglected is the patient’s state of mind. In this case, a women might be thinking about anxiety or intimate concerns. Breast cancer suffers place a lot of blame on themselves, questioning their lifestyle and the person they used to be.
Holistic treatments are by no means cures, but surgery and chemotherapy are hugely intrusive on a womens body and holistic treatments do give women an opportunity to take time to address their mind.
The way hypnotherapy works for breast cancer is through a technique known as cell command therapy, which sees the mind communicating with the body. Hypnotherapist, Marisa Peer, explains how the method is based on how the body copies the behavior of the mind. Patients must tell their cancer cells how to behave and imagine them being destroyed.
It is amazing what are bodies can do if we tell them too. Cancer brings about fear and anxiety and hypnotherapy allows women to communicate with their body, rid themselves of fear and make their imagination work with them rather than against them.
