Hypnotherapy is a complementary treatment that may assist in the management of some symptoms of cancer. For example, it may assist with in the treatment of stress and anxiety associated with a cancer diagnosis. High levels of stress may be detrimental to the health of cancer patients. Hypnosis may also help patients to better tolerate the side effects of chemotherapy including nausea and loss of appetite.
Note: Let me stress again that hypnotherapy is a complementary natural therapy and it is in no way a substitute for appropriate medical treatment such as chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. Please take the advice of qualified medical specialists or doctors in this regard.
However, hypnosis may be useful to manage the side effects of some cancer treatments and for helping cancer patients to be stronger physically, mentally and emotionally during this challenging time. Hypnotherapy can increase our resilience.
