Check out this article by the NIH about the integration of hypnosis into cancer care
“There has been widely publicized research on the use of hypnosis with metastatic breast cancer patients.

Hypnotherapy is scientifically proven as a powerful adjunctive therapy- applied along with traditional cognitive therapy. With hypnotherapy, we are addressing the potential unconscious ideas, beliefs, and emotions that often limit the patient from achieving optimal medical outcomes or potentials.

*how many people have negative self -talk when they focus on this condition, or in general about themselves, while working on healing?
How many people can relate to that?
