Hypnotherapy and Cancer

Why people with cancer use hypnotherapy

People with cancer most often use clinical hypnotherapy for sickness or pain. There is evidence that hypnotherapy as an adjunct with your regular doctor helps with these symptoms. It can also help with depression, anxiety, stress, weakness, nausea, and vomiting. Hypnotherapy may be woven into psychotherapy to assist in the uniquely personal adjustment each client has to make in their illness.

Some doctors and dentists have training in hypnotherapy. They may use this alongside conventional treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

Saint Peregrine is the patron saint for spontaneous remission from Cancer. He had cancer for 18 years, and due to the power of prayer was able to heal himself in 24 hours. A Miracle!

How Hypnotherapy can Benefit Cancer Patients

1 – clinical hypnotherapy is useful for treating the symptoms of the disease itself: pain, anxiety, nausea, organ-specific symptoms.

2 – clinical hypnotherapy is useful in the management of the side effects of the cancer treatment. This is important because sometimes the side effects are so bad they cause the client to drop out of treatment.

3 – clinical hypnotherapy is useful for dealing with the profound psychological issues that cancer patients have to cope with. Many see this diagnosis as a death sentence.
