Cancer

Just the name is enough to invoke fear. Yet every one of us produce abnormal cells that for the most part our immune system deals with.

.

What are the main causes of cancer.

Research has shown us that the major causes for cancer are a genetic predisposition to cancer, diet content particularly sugars, smoking in relation to lung, throat, and mouth cancers with the other major factor for all types of cancers being stress. Yet not everyone that has these major factors develops cancer it is usually the case of there being a combination of factors the biggest one of these acting as a trigger with other elements very often stress.

My qualifications are in the fields of Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness and Healing

As part of your health team. I can make a difference in many other ways by teaching you to become your own healer . Not only with the stress and anxiety you may have had in your life just through the actions of every day life, but also from the very real stress, pain and fear caused from just the diagnosis and then, the shearer exhaustion and self esteem issues that come along  with all the side effect of  all the medical treatments and protocols that you may need.


Hypnosis and mindfulness can have a very real and profound impact on your abilities to not only cope with the stresses of your cancer treatment but also helping you to regain control over your life leading you to the abilities and skills to improve your quality of life as you come to terms with this terrible disease, learning that it need not define you. Improving your abilities to cope with this devastating disease, that blights so many peoples lives.

Any medical professional will tell you that your state of mind and attitude have profound effects on your physical well-being, this is particularly true of this period of a persons life. We have all heard of the expressions mind and body and even extending that to mind body and soul. My job is to not only give meaning to those expressions and understandings but more importantly, working with you to bring a better quality life.

.

Each of us are individuals with our own belief systems, understandings and experiences making us the person we are. The same is true of what you need now.

As you are the expert on you. My first job is to listen to you and find out what you need most and then acting as a guide to help you to those understandings, inner truths and strengths’. Relieving the source of the problems that helped to create the cancer in the first place, but also helping you to cope with all the stresses and anxieties that the mere fact of being diagnosed with cancer causes. Then there is the treatment with all the side effects and fatigue, on top of the stresses of our everyday life. Helping you move on from cancer and not being defined by cancer. Learning to heal your body, mind and soul in ways that are uniquely right for you.

Although 1 participant admitted considering a drug holiday prior to joining the study, none of the participants felt tempted to stop their hormonal treatments while receiving Spiritual Healing.

Further research is needed to test Spiritual Healing as a cost-effective complementary therapy, for those undergoing long-term cancer treatments.”
