Do we cause our own illnesses?
Psychosomatic disorders are well known and accepted causes for multiple diseases involving the mind (psyche) and body (soma). For example, when we are afraid or anxious adrenaline is released often producing several of the following symptoms: a fast heart rate, fast breathing, wide eyes, palpitations, feeling sick, shaking (tremor), sweating, dry mouth, chest pain, headaches and a knot in the stomach. This is the body’s way of protecting itself, creating the flight, fright and fight response which increases the body readiness to react. Some physical diseases are thought to be made worse by mental factors such as stress and anxiety. However, the term psychosomatic disorder is mainly used to mean … “a physical disease that is thought to be caused, or made worse, by mental factors”. Some people also use the term psychosomatic disorder when mental factors cause physical symptoms, but where there is no physical disease. For example, a chest pain may be caused by stress, and no physical disease can be found. Whichever way the disorder is interpreted, it clearly shows that the mind and body impact upon each other.
Are you Stressed, Anxious, Worried?
The Mind Body Link
Every symptom that we experience is the body’s way of speaking, our body is sending messages to tell us that something is not quite right. This may be within our health from a dietary perspective, in the way that we are living our lives, or to point out the fact that we are ignoring our health and wellbeing. If our bodies have created the cancers then our bodies must know exactly how to un-create the cancer. It is up to the individual to provide our bodies and minds with the right tools to do so and to take away the impediments that caused the cancer to appear in the first place.

An Alternative Approach to Health
Neuro-Linguistic Psychotherapy (NLP) is an applied psychology which looks directly at the impact made by the language we use, our behaviors, decisions, beliefs and values. Assessing whether the choices that we have made as a result of these has had a negative impact upon our current reality. NLP focuses directly on the Mind and Body link, a well-researched phenomenon, that provides the foundations of many of the alternative therapies that are now available to help fight Cancer.
