Scientific Studies Show Hypnosis Helps Cancer Patients
The use of hypnosis to treat the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation has been extensively studied for more than thirty years. While modern oncology has made valiant strides in the successful treatment of cancer, it often results in great discomfort for the patient. The list of side effects of chemotherapy is long and arduous. Many patients experience nausea and vomiting, pain and discomfort, hot flashes, dry mouth, hair loss, sleep disturbances, and fatigue. There are emotional side effects as well: anxiety, depression, and anger. Patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation know all too well how grueling it can be.
In study after study, the powerful healing effects of hypnotherapy have been well established. In fact, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, the nation’s leading research center in oncology, recently concluded an in-depth study of hypnosis and cancer. It’s conclusions were stunning. For cancer patients who received a single presurgery hypnosis treatment :
23% less lidocaine
35% less propofel
44% less unpleasantness
46% less fatigue
47% less discomfort
55% less pain
68% decrease in hot flashes
75% less nausea
85% increase in over-all quality of life

Dr. Sewell AP. C. Ht. says:
“ Most people don’t realize just how much hypnosis can help you. The research on the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for a variety of medical conditions is extensive. My patients see great results, especially my cancer patients. Because they face unique challenges, cancer patients really feel and recognize the benefits of hypnotherapy. It makes then more comfortable. They sleep better at night and their appetites improve. They see how it improves their lives and speeds their recovery. And best of all, the results are sustained. It’s the most emotionally rewarding work I do.”
