My Chemo Secrets From a Breast Cancer Survivor Review

Highly Recommended

The writer presents a well detailed summery of the major headings. As a professional in this field, I must say that the points shared in this book are precise.

I give this ebook my highest rating, 10/10 and personally recommend it.

Hypnosis as an Adjunct to Chemotherapy in Cancer

Rosen models for us his approach to assisting cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy. As I point out in Chapter 16, there have been suggestions of caution expressed about using age progression techniques with seriously depressed patients lest they project themselves into a very negative future that exacerbates feelings of hopelessness. This could be iatrogenic and increase suicide potential. Thus you are cautioned to use age progression thoughtfully in working with cancer patients, assessing their level of depression and suicide potential prior to intervention. (Ed.) You are age 83, looking back at yourself, at age 43. And you see what happened after you saw Dr. Rosen. How did you go through that period How did you go through the chemotherapy Was the chemotherapy upsetting to you Did it take one week, did it take two weeks after you saw Dr. Rosen, before the chemotherapy was accepted as a matter-of-fact treatment As a helper Or did it take only one session before you felt...

Healing Others with Highly Developed Qi

One of my patients, Sophie D., was suffering from breast cancer. She came to see me because she has more faith in Chinese medicine than in Western medicine also she had seen my Qigong demonstrations and attended some of my seminars. After five treatments her condition had improved considerably -not just because my Qi cured her, but because she followed my instructions and every day did the exercises I had given her. Then one of the lumps disappeared. I believe that one day she will totally recover just by keeping up with the exercises.

Take Care of Your Mind for the Sake of Your Health

Most of the experiences we have, our character, our habits, our choices can all be improved or changed with self hypnosis. Your character is partially predisposed by genetics. There are genes that predispose some people to being a criminal or getting divorced. However, we can take control of these aspects of our life with hypnosis. We can also take charge of our health with self hypnosis even though many of the diseases and disorders people experience are genetically predisposed. Our genes definitely bring us the gift of life and they bring us many of the challenges that we must overcome as well Self hypnosis has been shown to improve the longevity of some people with breast cancer. Self hypnosis can improve health in people with both chronic and psychosomatic illnesses. That said, be certain it is clear that just because hypnosis can help improve the health of the chronically ill individual, it doesn't follow that psychosomatic or chronic illnesses aren't real. Psychosomatic...

Dermatologie Disorders

To this chapter, a soothing bath with cornstarch) is commonly beneficial with irritating conditions. Practicing self-hypnosis to reduce stress may likewise benefit conditions that are exacerbated by anxiety (e.g., herpes, acne, eczema, psoriasis). Warts and herpes may be positively affected through production of ideosensory changes (e.g., warmth, coolness, tingling) both in the office and through practice several times daily in self-hypnosis. Studies (e.g., Scott, 1960 Sinclair-Gieben & Chalmers, 1959 Surman, Gottlieb, & Hackett, 1972 Surman, Gottlieb, Hackett, & Silverberg, 1973 Tasini & Hackett, 1977) have shown particularly impressive effects in applying hypnosis to the treatment of warts. The successful impact of words and imagination on warts is of particular import considering the increasingly widespread routine use of powerful chemotherapy agents to treat warts.

Whenever Two or More of You Meditating with Others

Besides, researchers like Dean Ornish have found that a sense of belonging or connectedness with others not only improves the quality of life but also increases longevity. In one study, people who answered yes to the questions Do you draw strength from your religious faith and Are you a member of any organization that meets regularly were seven times more likely to survive open-heart surgery than those who answered no. In another study, women being given the same conventional treatments for metastatic breast cancer were divided into two groups one that met together once a week

Symptom Effectiveness

Although applied relaxation was developed to treat patients with phobias, it has a wide range of applications in other areas, including panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, headache (tension, migraine, and mixed), back and joint pain, epilepsy in both children and adults, and tinnitus. In clinical practice, applied relaxation training has also proven useful for sleep-onset insomnia, for cardiac neurosis, and for cancer patients with chemotherapy-induced nausea (Ost 1987). Ost found that almost everyone can learn applied relaxation and that 90 to 95 percent of the patients in his studies experienced benefits from the training.

Regression And Depression

The metabolic rate rises significantly with burns, and attains a maximum of twice normal when the extent of the burn reaches 60 of body surface. Meeting caloric requirements is imperative for good wound healing, and recent studies indicate that enteral feeding may protect against endotoxemia and is preferable to intravenous feeding. Burned patients are often aware of the odor of their secretions and feel queazy or lacking in appetite. Hypnosis is widely used to control the nausea associated with chemotherapy, and Crasilneck (Crasilneck et al., 1955) has reported a depleted burn patient who increased his oral intake to 8000 Kcal per day with hypnotic suggestions to eat everything on his plate.

Chronic Disease Multisystem Disease Terminal Illness

Studies also indicate that children are able to use hypnotic skills to reduce nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy (Zeltzer & LeBaron, 1982 LeBaron & Hilgard, 1984 Jacknow, Tschann, Link & Boyce, 1994). It also has been demonstrated (Olness & Singher, 1989) that children use RMI most effectively when they learn the techniques soon after their initial diagnosis (LaClave & Blix, 1989). With terminally ill children, hypnosis has been a particularly effective adjunctive modality in assisting them and their families to cope with and navigate the last moments of life (Gardner, 1976 Olness & Kohen 1996).

Two Case Examples Of Hypnotic Interventions For Childhood Depression

Liver and put in a pump to give chemotherapy directly to the area. With typical developmentally appropriate bravado and denial, R. said he was sure that she will not die from this and that the doctor has said so, too. Without any comment on this, I asked him what he had thought about when he considered if she did die. He was able to say directly, but with detachment I'd be very sad.

Suggestions With Cancer Patients

Many of the same pain strategies apply with pain patients. However, for coping with the side effects of chemotherapy or radiotherapy, I suggest that the unconscious mind will potentiate the therapeutic effects of all treatment and minimize the adverse side effects. It is suggested that, in fact, you can experience any number of different sensations instead of nausea or pain. A feeling of tingling, which often accompanies nausea, is one that you can focus on, and you will experience more tingling than nausea.

William H Redd Patricia H Rosenberger and Cobie S Hendler

We believe the control of chemotherapy nausea emesis through hypnosis offers several advantages. Hypnosis during chemotherapy treatment makes the experience less stressful and the time pass more quickly. It requires no equipment unless a patient uses hypnosis tapes, and then only a tape recorder and audiotapes are required. Unlike antiemetic drugs, it does not produce aversive side effects. As a skill which patients can learn, it gives patients a personal sense of mastery and control over their problem, rather than an increased sense of helplessness resulting from further dependency than a state which just happens every time they are hypnotized. To those patients searching for a technique which eradicates post-chemotherapy nausea with little effort on their part, this is a disappointment. To those patients who desire control over their acute nausea, this technique is eagerly embraced. In addition to a general wariness toward hypnosis, some patients believe that a psychological...

This script was developed for inclusion on a self-hypnosis tape for a middle-aged woman with inflammatory breast cancer who had to have radiation implanted into her breast. The script was designed in two sections. The first part was designed to be used prior to the operation, in the waiting area, and during the operation. The second part was designed for use during the several days she needed to remain in the hospital with the radioactive implant inside and for her recovery at home. She worked with computers as part of her employment and loved the ocean.*

Gagging is an abnormal response of mouth and throat muscles to a normal stimulus either physical or psychological. It has been a problem in professional practice for persons who cannot swallow food or pills, brush their teeth, wear dental appliances, or react excessively to chemotherapy. Authorities have mentioned various methods of controlling this habit. They include authoritative waking suggestion, symptom removal by hypnotherapeutic suggestion, and brief hypnoanalysis (Erickson, Hershman, & Secter, 1961), as well as anesthesia (Hartland, 1966), ideomotor questioning and anesthesia (Cheek & LeCron, 1968), and direct suggestion (Hilgard & Hilgard, 1975). The following technique uses relaxation, temperature change and anesthesia for adults, and relaxation, temperature change and arm catalepsy relaxation for children.

Impermanence

You have breast cancer, the surgeon said, a serious look on his face. I just laughed and said, No, I don't. The lump is nothing. You said so yourself. You have breast cancer, he repeated. All I could do was look into his eyes and say, It has to be a joke. I'm only twenty-seven. I had thought that breast cancer was a disease of my mother's generation or of women who have a family history of the disease. But on February 24, six weeks after my twenty-seventh birthday, I started a war with my body. My doctor was ashen when he broke the news to me. I stared for what seemed like hours at the picture of his daughter, who looked like me - young, black hair, brown eyes. A lawyer, I was told. It could have been her she could have been me. But it wasn't her. I had the disease for which there is no cure - just treatments that might or might not work. No promises, no guarantees. At twenty-seven, I had thought I had a lifetime in front of me. The day before my biopsy, I wanted a family, kids, a...

Listed in rough order of tractability by hypnosis, these include a subgroup of asthmas some dermatological disorders, including warts irritable bowel syndrome hemophilia and nausea associated with chemotherapy. The mechanism by which hypnosis alleviates these disorders is unknown, and claims that hypnosis increases immune function in any clinically important way are at this time unsubstantiated.
