As scientists learn more about fat they think that there is a strong possibility that obesity may affect breast cancer recovery and may even cause cancer. Too much body fat leads to a more aggressive cancer behavior and you want to avoid it. For several years I have taught self hypnosis to people living with cancer so that they can better manage their symptoms and recovery and I have assisted many people with weight loss.
Obesity May Affect Breast Cancer Recovery
WebMD, August 27, 2012: Extra pounds may raise the risk for recurrence among women with the most common kind of breast cancer, a new study shows.
Prior studies have found that being overweight or obese increases the risk of getting a number of cancers, including breast cancer. And smaller studies have noted that obese breast cancer patients tended to fare worse than those who are normal weight.
Among women with hormone-sensitive tumors, those who were overweight or obese when they were diagnosed were about 30% more likely than those with normal body weights to see their breast cancers come back after surgery and chemotherapy. They were also about 50% more likely to die over the course of the studies.
The risk appeared to increase in a step-wise fashion — the higher a woman’s weight, the greater her odds of recurrence and early death.
Do you know that people who received hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not receiving hypnosis and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended? Hypnosis for cancer and hypnosis for weight loss can often be combined to enhance your recovery and health.
Thanks to modern technology, I now assist clients who have cancer and weight loss hypnosis clients across the US, and in several countries across the globe.
