A new study shows that stress can accelerate prostrate cancer and that stress can reduce the effectiveness of prostrate cancer therapies. Hypnosis has proven to be effective for both stress reduction and cancer treatment. In my Seattle hypnosis, Bainbridge Island hypnosis, at Peninsula Cancer Center in Poulsbo and via Skype hypnosis people living with cancer are learning self hypnosis for cancer to reduce stress, control pain and nausea, increase energy, counteract negative side effects of cancer treatment and improve recovery. Studies are showing that hypnosis is a powerful and effective tool in dealing with the physical symptoms of cancer as well as decreasing need for anesthesia during surgery, alleviating pain, nausea, fatigue and emotional distress.
Emotional Stress Reduces Effectiveness of Prostate Cancer Therapies in Animal Model
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, January 25, 2013: Not surprisingly, a cancer diagnosis creates stress. And patients with prostate cancer show higher levels of anxiety compared to other cancer patients.
A new study by researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center indicates that stress is not just an emotional side effect of the diagnosis; it also can reduce the effectiveness of prostate cancer drugs and accelerate the development of prostate cancer.
We are at the very beginning of understanding complex stress-cancer interactions with multifaceted responses to stress that affect cancer cells, tumor microenvironment, and the organism overall. We hope that components of this signaling pathway could be used as biomarkers to predict whether and how a given tumor will respond to stress and anti-stress therapies.
The findings are published in the February issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
I’m very fortunate in that I have never had cancer. I am also blessed to have had the opportunity for the past 10 years to teach people living with cancer self hypnosis. The feedback that I have received supports the studies showing the effectiveness of hypnosis for cancer and hypnosis for stress reduction. You too can learn self hypnosis for cancer and stress reduction and create inner peace for health and healing.
Having a life threatening disease like cancer is stressful. Hypnosis help is available via Skype in your own home or office.
