Emotional/Side Effects of Cancer Treatment and Natural Therapies
This disease has been in existence for hundreds of years … it seems as though it is even more prevalent now than in past decades.
Cancer refers to any one of numerous diseases characterised by the development of abnormal cells that divide uncontrollably and have the ability to infiltrate and destroy normal body tissue. It can often spread throughout the body. According to Mayo Clinic, cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the world.
How cancer cells can take over a person’s body
Cancer cells take up the needed space and nutrients that the healthy organs would use. As a result, the healthy organs can no longer function. For others, complications from treatment can cause death. During the final stages of cancer, problems may be experienced in several parts of the body.
Chronic stress and cancer
Whilst we can all feel challenged by life situations, family dynamics, financial, work concerns and much more, chronic stress is different. This can be as a result over a long period of time in fact this can increase the release of stress hormones which can lead to mental and physical problems. Whilst there is no evidence that chronic stress causes cancer, it can however affect metastasis ie the acceleration of the disease.
There is a very physical aspect about this condition of course, in this article I am coming from the metaphysical perspective – the emotions connected with the physical. From the much respected and quoted book, “Secret Language of your Body” by Inna Segal –
Cancer – Feeling limited, angry, fearful, out of control. Carrying wounds from the past. Not feeling good enough, shrinking inside and attacking yourself from within. Feeling like guilt, grief and uncertainty are eating away at your body. On guard never able to relax and let go. Often pushing yourself to do more than you can handle. Trying to please others and constantly seeking approval.
Treatment for cancer
Depending on the person’s personal choices and state of their health, there are many – conventional eg. chemotherapy, radiation, mainstream medications, etc. Alternatively there is “Raw” (food) programs, many and varied Natural Remedies including Homeopathics/Bach and Australian Bush Flower Remedies, so very beneficial.
Ask someone how they feel – tragically – yes, pain of course, however, often the feeling of isolation, fear of uncertainty, overwhelm, aloneness, low self-esteem, feeling “different”, self-conscious of appearance eg. loss of hair, weight, etc are insurmountable. Possibly the most important gift we can give to people in this experience is our time, kindness and reassurance that they are still the same person, connected and loved.
From a mental and emotional outlook, Australian Bush Flowers’ Tall Yellow Top can assist with the feeling of aloneness/isolation, Paw Paw –for overwhelm, Five Corners – self-esteem, Billy Goat Plum – uneasiness with self-image .. not to mention the extraordinary Bach Rescue Remedy 30c … and many more.
