TTAC is experiencing heavy censorship on many social media channels since we’ve been targeted by the mainstream media sellouts, social media bullies, and political turncoats. Be sure to get the TRUTH by subscribing to our email list. It’s free.
War, natural disasters, the loss of a loved one, domestic abuse, financial destitution, a cancer diagnosis, tragic events from childhood: these and so many more situations can cause the “bottom to fall out” of our lives. They can also leave us with medically-diagnosable psychological disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
But can emotional traumas, if left unresolved, actually lead to cancer? The answer, according to the latest research on stress, the emotions, and cancer… is an unequivocal Yes!
The Long-Term Effects of Emotional Trauma
According to the American Psychological Association, trauma is “the emotional response someone has to an extremely negative event.” In-the-moment responses to such events (often called “shock”), such as racing pulse, dizziness, confusion, numbness, disorientation, and distraction, are a normal part of our system’s “fight or flight” response.
Problems arise, however, when the effect of such events are so severe that they linger with us long after the fact.
The following are signs that an emotional trauma may still be effecting you or a loved one:
- Avoidance of people, places, and situations that are reminders of the trauma
- Spontaneous recurrence or distressing memories of the event
- Ongoing nightmares and flashbacks about the event
- Distress when faced with people, places, and situations that remind the person of the event
- An inability to remember the important aspects of the event that is not related to head injury or substances
- Sweeping negative generalizations and blame about oneself, others, or the world (eg. “I am no good,” “All men are scum,” “The world is a dangerous place”)
- Overall feelings of shame, horror, anger, guilt, or fear
- Diminished participation in activities that used to interest the person
- Estrangement from others
- Inability to experience positive emotions
- Self-destructive behavior
- Hypervigilance or paranoia
- Exaggerated “startle” response
- Inability to concentrate
- Sleep issues
- Emotional numbness
- Overall edginess or irritability
- Mood swings
Whether or not you have been medically diagnosed with PTSD, if you have experienced a traumatic event in your life and you have not healed the wound of that experience, chances are you are dealing with the ramifications of chronic stress which could lead to cancer.
How Chronic Stress Effects Cancer
When emotional trauma goes unhealed, the body system is in a constant state of heightened stress. Numerous studies have connected stress with lower immune function and higher incidences of disease in general. A recent report, however, analyzed the findings of close to a hundred other studies that showed how the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) can actually encourage metastasis when it is chronically activated.
The SNS is the primary system involved in the chemical changes that occur during “fight or flight.” In acute situations, the SNS becomes active. As soon as a traumatizing event has passed, however, the body goes back to homeostasis within about an hour. Under chronic stress, the SNS is “turned on” virtually all the time. In this state, adrenaline and noradrenaline-stimulating mechanisms within it will alter genetic code.
This genetic alteration can lead to a number of pro-cancer processes:
- Activation of inflammatory responses
- The inhibiting of immune responses
- Inhibition of programmed cancer cell death
- The reduction in the cytotoxic function of Natural killer cells
- The inhibiting of DNA repair
- Stimulation of cancer cell angiogenesis
- Activation of “epithelial-mesenchymal transition,” which is one of the ways new cancer stem cells are created
4 Ways to Heal Emotional Trauma and Lower Chronic Stress
Dr. Douglas Brodie, MD, is a pioneer in understanding the connection between the emotions, the mind, and cancer. After almost three decades of research, he noticed that the majority of individuals diagnosed with cancer have similar psychological traits. He calls this the “Cancer Personality Profile.”
Among these characteristics is the experiencing of a traumatizing and emotionally-damaging event roughly two years before getting a cancer diagnosis. Other characteristics mimic those of long-term emotional trauma mentioned above. A few of note are the tendency to internalize intense emotions, difficulty in establishing closeness with others, and an inability to adequately cope with stressful situations.
The good news, however, is that there are dozens of modalities out there that can help you heal the wounds of emotional trauma and reduce chronic stress that can lead to cancer. Here are four to try:
#1 – Meditation and Visualization
Radiation oncologist Dr. Carl Simonton and his wife Stephanie, a trained psychologist, are the authors of the book Getting Well Again: A Step-by-Step Self-Help Guide to Overcoming Cancer for Patients and Their Families. This seminal work was perhaps one of the first to document how people can influence their disease process through healing their emotions. Of the many modalities they discuss are meditation and visualization. In their book, they provide example after example of how meditation and visualization prolonged life, improved the quality of life, and in some cases aided in cancer healing altogether.
More recent research confirms what the Simonton’s wrote about in the late 70s. A 2015 Canadian study observed breast cancer survivors who meditated and those who didn’t. After three months, the meditators showed evidence of longer telomere strands than those who did not practice meditation. Telomeres exist at the end of every cell chromosome and protect the integrity of genetic information. Shortened telomeres are often associated with age and diseases such as cancer.
#2 – Healing Emotional Wounds
Healing deep emotional wounds through therapy, hypnosis, or specific programs can help heal the lingering effects of emotional trauma, especially if it occurred during childhood.
The experiences you had during your formative years, whether they were positive or negative, formed how you now interact with the outside world as an adult. These belief systems can be changed, but only by working at the subconscious level, which was where they were formed in the first place. “Talk therapy” can be helpful for understanding the dynamics of the event and for breaking unhealthy behavior patterns when combined with other modalities such as visualization. Programs such as The Silva Method can speed up the process as well.
#3 – EFT
New Physics pioneer Bruce Lipton, author of The Biology of Belief, considers Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), or Meridian Tapping, to be in the category of “super-learning.” This is because EFT reprograms old negative beliefs by working on both the kinesthetic level (through tapping acupressure points) and verbal statements for very rapid results. EFT is ideal as a supplement to other modalities and as a stand-alone for lowering anxiety and stress levels quickly.
#4 – Exercise
There is a direct link between regular exercise and the regulation of stress hormones. Numerous studies have shown that when animals are stressed repeatedly and not allowed a physical outlet, disease sets in quickly. When animals are provided with a physical outlet to release the stress, however, the damage to their bodies is minimal. Studies also confirm that individuals who walk and jog on a regular basis are more flexible in their belief systems, display greater self-acceptance, self-confidence, and self-responsibility and were less prone to depression.
You CAN Heal Emotional Trauma and Reduce Your Risk of Cancer
Whatever modality you use for trauma healing, remember that the best course of action should include practices that you can incorporate into your regular routine − preferably on a daily basis. The ability to allow emotions to simply flow through you instead of holding on to them is akin to a “muscle” that must be worked every day in order to grow strong.
It may take a little time to see results from your inner work, but you WILL see them. And when you do, you will realize that the state of your life, and your health, has remarkably changed for the better.

excellent explanation…thanks ^.^
It seems that along with emotions triggering cancers, it is my experience that Forgiveness is a key emotional release for trama that alot of people forget about. The Forgiveness must be total and with Love, or is is not complete. This is self healing as in Physician heal thy self. There is a brightness that comes to the eyes and a softness to the face, when done with true Forgiveness. I have been doing this for 14 years, assisting others. Hold nothing back. Love and Gratitude. Alan.
Rinske Wagenaar says
Thank you Alan – this may be my problem. I am currently dealing with grief and stress and I know it is not healthy, but it will not go away. Our youngest son took his own life in January and a week later my husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. The only relief is wine induced sleep. I am trying to keep stress and grief damage at bay by taking chlorella, milk thistle, dandelion root, vit D and lots of fruit. My diet is very clean. As a young child I was emotionally abandoned and I am most comfortable being angry and sad. I may need to forgive my mother and my husband, but I can’t – I am angry at them.
Lynn Eriksen says
Through the terrible pain that you are dealing with remember that you must make a choice about what’s best for YOU now. Having a warm, supportive and smart therapist that you can talk to about your life can make a huge difference. They can help you learn to see things in a different light, to learn to care about yourself and perhaps other involvement in support groups that can surround you with understanding and others who are going through through their own traumas. I know you must feel that you are living in an alternate universe right now-but sometimes one small action and commitment to your own sanity can be a beginning out of the darkness. I know it is not comfortable being angry and sad-you are just used to it- Reach out for help-it IS there-don’t let fear of payment or embarrassment stop you-your life is too valuable-There is much good in this world and many people who will love to help and support you.
️️Love heals, hate kills, be the ️Love side of your life, no matter what, what we are dealing with right now is very hard, but much easier dealing with it with Love,
Feel your heart grow warm, remember this, because this is how we want to feel, when we die, this is good energy, which is the pathway to the light. ????????
Hi Rinske, there is a 10 minute forgiveness process that works very well, you can keep your anger while you do it. Its called ‘Radical Forgiveness’ .If there’s a way to email I can forward the details to you, Regards Tom
Marina Jarocki says
Can you email this to me, as well, Tom?
Claire Murphy says
Dear Rinske, I’m so very sorry for your turmoil. Have you tried counseling? With such heavy emotional things, it seems that counseling , talking to someone you will like, (you can tell right away) who sees so much of your problem, may be able to lead you in a new direction. But it will take time, you’ve suffered such terrible problems, I pray for your recovery. Things that happen in our younger times, truly gear us for tougher things later in life. To be angry at your Mom, is understandable, for not being there for emotional guidance, but it’s hurting you, not her. I had the same thing as a child, As for your husband, he didn’t ask for Cancer, so he must be heavy w/ fear.
To lose a child is my greatest fear, nothing could be worse for a parent, but maybe you have to solve one thing at a time?
If you read the book “It Didn’t Start With You” by Mark Wolynn your heart may soften towards your parents when you can recognize that their past traumas are the reason for them not being able to provide you with what you needed. Regardless, you will not heal until your relationship with them is healed, even if they are not here in physical form. It’s hard work, but the payoff is worth it.
Oh, dear… I’m so sorry about your son. Please, accept my love..
Thanks to Alan . He reminds us about importance of Forgiveness especially towards yourself.. There is a neurofeedback alpha -waves training and the best one is located in British Columbia, Canada and i believe in Germany ( originally it’s been moved out from the USA). BioCybernaut Institute. They work through Forgiveness. (Many years I dream to visit them but I can’t afford).
Dear Rinske, my heart goes out to you. I know that Alan is right in what he says about forgiveness, and you said that you think so, too. I know how it is to feel the need to forgive, and yet, not be able yet to reach that level of total forgiveness. I hope that you and I and everyone else can eventually claim that elusive peace. I feel for you. You are not alone in your quest.
Doing the EFT or therapy might not necessarily work for you. Hypnotherapy might not also work. It didn’t work for me as I simply do not trust other people or won’t allow them to in control of me.
So the best thing I do and you can do is exercise and by that I mean putting in some serious exercise. Stretching is good but not sufficient. I believe it to be absolutely essential. Too many people nowadays are totally sedentary.
Shirley Gazzola says
Dear rinske, I was abandoned as a young child never sure when my Mom would reappear. I truly believe that forgiveness starts with ourselves before I could forgive my mother I had to deal with the anger towards her and my father. I moved through the anger by journaling my anger and the by visualizing both of my parents in chairs where I would read out my angry thoughts first and then realizes I could finally forgive myself for my thoughts of I am not good enough, I am not smart enough . These I used as a reason my parents abandoned me. Once I saw this was not true I could forgive myself and then forgive them which I did through them sitting in the chairs again. Then a child about 6 appeared in the chair and I knew it was me and she came and Sat on my lap and I held her and rocks as I told her I loved her. This process took over 5 years and was do worth it as I continued to heal. With love and prayers Shirley
carl Brown says
If you go to my website i have made a short video of how early trauma can be trapped in our subconscious mind. I have found that inner-child work in hypnosis is very effective
What a hard year you’re going though and no doubt you’ve had other painful years. I hope you get to have peace on the inside in time.
I’ve hard years and not so hard. My son had lymphoma when 10 yrs old and my Dad and mother-in -law died the same year. My son died 3 years later
Realistically its nigh impossible to forgive but God wants to come alongside of you and show you how His son forgave those who killed him and how much He wants you to know He forgives all your misdemeanours
That’s why it’s amazing grace!!
Once you taste his amazing grace and love then it’s possible to start the journey to forgive your mother and husband Keep in mind forgiveness doesn’t mean what they did was ok. It just lets you off the hook – so you stop suffering.
Check out Father’s love letter
Will pray for you
Hello Rinske, you are right, we cannot forgive on our own. Perhaps you are familiar with the story of Corrie TenBoom, who was arrested by the Nazis, along with her elderly father and sister, for helping to protect Jews. Corrie and her sister were sent to a death camp and subjected to humiliation and abuse, but Corrie’s sister always encouraged all to have faith in God and respond with love. Corrie’s sister died in the camp, but Corrie was released. Afterwards she traveled around sharing a message of healing and forgiveness, but was sorely tried when, after speaking of God’s forgiveness to all, even the most cruel, a German man approached her and thanked her for her message of forgiveness. She immediately recognized him as a cruel guard from the death camp, and she realized that she did not want to forgive him, indeed, she could not forgive him. Yet he was extending his hand to her to thank her for her message of forgiveness. Her arm was frozen at her side and she could not extend it to him. She sent up a prayer, Lord Jesus, I cannot forgive him, please give me Your forgiveness for this man, and she felt a change come over her as she extended her hand to him in the forgiveness that was given to her by her Creator. Truly, we cannot forgive on our own, but it is a gift from our Creator if we just ask for it. And we may need to ask for it many times. You are precious, and your Creator longs to bring you healing and freedom. Blessings to you, and may you find the peace in the gift of His forgiveness to extend to others. With love, Jacquie
Forgot this story about TenBoom. Great story and reminder.
Beautiful comments. Such truth and love. So grateful that we have a God that with Him all things like forgiveness is possible.
Richard Yurick says
Dr. Veronique, I would put unceasing prayer as the first and most important way to heal from any emotional trauma. My God can heal anyone of anything at any time. Praise His name.
I agree with you Richard. I have a weekly small prayer group of women that meets at my kitchen table. We read God’s Word and pray into His Truth. He tells us in His Word that He is our Healer in Exodus 15:26:
He said, “If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you.”
And again in James 5:16, He says – Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
We are working on our faith to believe His Truth and also learning to pay attention to His commands and to keep His decrees. It’s a process and He is teaching us because He LOVES to instruct us as we seek Him. A group of three-four of us diligently seek Him together. We love the Lord. He has blessed us with peace and joy and healing. We praise Him, worship Him and give thanks for His goodness to us and for so much else. And when the Spirit moves, we give Him permission to shine light on areas of darkness in our hearts. Some ‘stuff’ may have been there for a lifetime or has been justified by our culture or upbringing, or passed down to us through generations. Then when the ‘sin’ is revealed it gets confessed to one another. He works very gently and lovingly with each of us because He only reveals to us what we can handle. Whenever an unidentified area of sin comes to light and I confess it out to my sisters (in Christ) or when I confess a known overt sin, I feel released of pressure and feel lighter. It’s incredible. God knows what He’s talking about. He really does heal us, He wants to do that for us.
Bless you all and I pray that you too find the peace and joy and healing that come from the Lord.
Rhonda Elston,MA LMHC says
I have been a mental health therapist for 30 years and one who has been trained as a trauma therapist for many of those years. One trauma technique that I would highly recommend is EMDR. It is one of the most researched trauma therapys. When it comes to trauma neuroscientists say that “what fires together wires together”. What gets wired into a trauma is the
1) MEMORY OF THE EVENT ( what we recall of the trauma). 2) NEGATIVE COGNITIONS (what we’ve come to believe about our self because of the trauma), 3) NEGATIVE EMOTIONS (example.. I’m unworthy, I’m unlovable, etc) lastly, 4) OUR BODY’S “FELT SENSE” OF THE EXPERIENCE. The body truly “keeps the score” when it comes to trauma. EMDR has the capacity to help “unwire” this network because it replicates REM sleep. (REM sleep is where we heal emotional memories) God has given us the capacity to heal emotional trauma and I have been honored to assist clients on their healing journey using EMDR.
EMDR is a therapy tool worth considering.
Rhonda Elston, MA, LMHC
i found so much of the article relevant to myself when I had breast cancer . I find it so helpful to read that I am on the right path to reduce my risk of cancer returning, thanks for the guidance.
I suggest taking a look at the site (New Zealand), alternative-cancer-care.com Lots of information on emotions and cancer–
psychology-oncology. All best, Faye
Yael Nadia Guery says
I found it usefull article, inspiring spreading the truth in opposition to pharmaceutiical and medical industry. My compliments!
This article has me thinking of the stress of 11/2015 when my mom died and 1/1/16 when my dad died. Both had cancer. Me and my husband brought my dad up to New York to live with us. He was in St. Augustine Fl. His second wife had Alzheimer’s and was in a nursing home for 7 or 8 years already and my dad was in his 90s. We had to bring him to live with us as he was no longer able to care for himself. It was very hard for him to live with us and the situation in my house was terrible. My dad hated my husband and to make a long story short, my health suffered greatly as I was also working and caring for dad and going to see mom who lived an hour away and was dying of lung cancer and I had to put dad in a nursing home. Anyway the stress in my life was so bad for such a long time it makes me wonder how long it will take to get my body back to normal and healthy. At least from this article I do not demonstrate any of the severe signs as mentioned in the beginning because of my faith in God and constant prayer, but now I have watched the Truth About Cancer series and am eating healthier and trying my best to align myself with God’s plan for me and my life. Thank you so much for sharing all you do! God bless you!
Thanks Alan. I am trying my very best to forgive totally and with love. Been reading a lot too on forgiveness and praying for the highest good for everyone especially those who have wronged me in the past. Learning about Reiki and practicing it as often as I can seem to help, however once in awhile feelings of despair do creeps up creating so much sadness again. Am not perfect and am trying my best..
My daughter has small fiber neuropathy. This causes her body to live its life in a constant state of “fight or flight.” I am thinking that this is such a strain upon her system, besides the attending health issues. She isn’t “into” meditation, visualization and things like that; and can’t/won’t exercise because of the pain and other symptoms. I’ve started taking yoga for myself, as a preventative and to help me cope with life. I fear for my daughter, but I can’t force these things on her. ‘Just wanted to express this. Thanks for your article.
Hello Jean; I am a intuitive dowser and Forgiveness facilitator and have had 70 yrs of life experience. Your daughter had a experience at around age 14 a trauma of some kind? The trauma goes into our bodies and creates toxins, I believe and so do others. There is a statement that says, every wound we ever experienced is with us now, everything is Gods witness. And we seem to leave a piece of our selves with the experience, that piece is also the peace. When I Forgive a brightness comes to my eyes and a feeling of peaceful resolution comes over me. ” Forgive us our trespasses as we Forgive those who trespass against us” and ” Exalt all things” Loving Blessings. Yourself called alan.
Annette Vaillancourt says
I am so glad you introduce EFT for healing emotional stress. I’ve been an EFT facilitator for 10 years and was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Lung Cancer. You can bet I’m tapping like crazy…on everything from the day to day stress of getting through the day, managing physical symptoms, to the inevitable issues that arise when your life is turned upside down and you know there’s no going back.
Because of my 30 year focus on mind/body/spirit healing, I opted out of chemo and radiation for complimentary care…most of which Ty touches on in his series. But EFT is a MAJOR part of my healing and not just a footnote. I hope more people inquire into how to use this powerful self-help method.
Dave Bucklow says
Not included in your artical above is Tai Chi & Qi Gong. These Antient Arts are growing in leaps and bounds today, mainly thanks to Bill Douglas of Kasnas City and his World Tai Chi Day promotion. Both of these Arts are perfect therapies for stress relief.
A whole library of information can be found at Bill’s web site – worldtaichiday.org.
If the health system would embrace Tai Chi & Qi Gong it could save $$ millions $$ and we would ALL be in better health Naturaly.
Yours in Health
Diane Trollope says
This is a true statement that unresolved trauma can ‘crash’ the immune system and lead to cancers, and other trouble.
Myself, silence is the worse thing you can do to yourself. I was trained to be silent..so was. It cost a lot and the fear was constant till my body broke down with illness. It started then and ten years later the cancer was found. I was told it had grown about 10 years and didn’t look back
till chemotherapy was over a while. When I could I did and discovered it was just about the same timeframe after the attack.
My faith and so much grace has been given and offered since that time and going to a specialist I finally was able to tell it, and deal with it.
And healing does come. Actually, the breast cancer was found during my healing process.
I have found that lack of sleep for whatever reason has ended in an illness not expected, or wanted. It is a deadly game when my body cannot get enough good healing sleep.
Yes, meditation is certainly a good thing and I do chair yoga. I wrote and do art so get lost in those medium, so do what brings joy and peace to your heart, soul & it will translate to your physical being as well. And never be silent when something creates trauma.
Looking to help others is also a good way to balance all the self stuff which is not so good to focus entirely on in the long run.
Now with The Food Revolution is helping with food ideas and new choices.
Thanks for this work on The Truth About Cancer…. amazing work.
Trauma Release Exercises as taught by Dr. David Berceli,PhD. are very helpful as are all of the above that are mentioned in the article. Dr. Berceli has helped many thousands of people in crisis situations and has helped many of our vets with PTSD.
Fran Peterson says
I learn so much from these articles. Thank you so much for all your hard work and then sharing with us. I truly appreciate it!
Hello Rinski. I am Alan; You said that you are angry at others, be careful with your emotions, feel them and beat a pillow. Anger is a strong emotion and it will hurt you, your body will tell you that you are hurting it. It is self abuse. You hold back your parents and you hold you back from freedom and peace. It has been said that” it is like taking poision and waiting for the other person to die”. Love is the key that fits into the lock of Forgiveness and Freedom. Your eyes will change and a light comes to them and then a softness comes to the face and a appearance of youthfulness.Forgive others and Forgive your self and we tend to leave a piece of our self with the experience so visualize this happening. I was given a Forgiveness ceremony that goes beyond the usual ” I Forgive you” if you want I can share it with you, at my e-mail address. God I Love You, You ARE Myself. Alan.
Diane Trollope says
Good advice, Alan. I found forgiveness also to be a key to settling matters in the past. It does not always take the results away, but it releases the grip that the trauma has on you now. Then dealing with what happened seems less a burden that blocks, but slowly becomes an opening for new thinking.
That leads to new energy being born. If there is someone to talk with that certainly helps, better yet, ask for it. Speak to your doctor, or someone. Having others on board helps. Forgiveness does not mean setting yourself up, it means letting go of what holds you hostage and that is anger. Underlying anger is most often… fear. Knowing that helped to understand where to begin.
Forgiving leads to less stress.. Our body is for our life. It knows what we need to be well. Love ourselves …. a thought to believe and hold close.
Nickie Barnard says
Dear Rinske – I too I needed to forgive my Mother but found I first needed to give myself permission to hate her. Someone here rightly says that anger is dangerous – it’s an energy and so can’t be destroyed – so I figured I should let it out rather than let it eat me, and it helped. Once it was out of my system I could be objective and see that I didn’t know what made her as she had been and, although it wasn’t my fault, what she had left me with was my responsibility. That I could work with.
Love didn’t work for me in that time. Love is like a stream of pure water and I was a muddy, stagnant pool which first needed cleaning. Other people couldn’t help, and nor could God as a benevolent outside force and so I ended up redefining the concept. God has a lot to deal with, millions of galaxies, etc, and whatever bit of the Almighty to which I have access is already within. It gives me the duty to cherish my spirit and to love myself. However much we may care for another person we can’t control their destiny, only our own, You are the most important person in your life. The better you are for yourself, the better you are for others.
Sleep is important – forget the wine. Magnesium, selenium and zinc. Go for a walk if you can’t face exercise. One step at a time. I’m saying the same things as everyone else – just differently. My depression lasted for years and I wouldn’t want that for you.
Like me, you won’t give up. That’s why you are writing.
Tim Turner says
Can you give us information on Xgeva for bone cancer ?
monika ashton says
Dr. Gabor Mate has written a very good book on this subject, “When the Body Says No”.
This relates to emotional stress causing eventual disease.
Julia, I don’t know where you are located, but one of the original neurofeedback alpha -waves training centers is the Princeton Biofeedback Centre run by Dr Les Fehmi in Princeton, NJ.
Excellent article. I’ve used all of the techniques mentioned and they’ve all helped. Meditation is the one that was a complete game changer – though again all have contributed.
I’ve tried a number of meditation techniques/methods but the one that I found easiest, most pleasant and at the same time deepest and most impactful is TM (transcendental meditation). I didn’t have actual TM training because it’s so expensive and the technique is so simple. But there are a number low cost or free knockoffs online offering the same technique. “Deep Meditation” on AYP.org is a free and well documented knockoff with forums etc. I originally learned with NSR (natural stress relief) by buying their manual for I think $30.
But TM is the quickest route to the meditative goal of stillness. And once stillness is reached, stress completely evaporates replaced by greater energy, calmness and alertness. A major win for quality of life.
Lynn – you probably do not realise how many people may be reached by that one thoughtful reply. For those of us dealing with complex situations that cause debilitating emotional responses too difficult to explain, a thoughtful comment like yours can make a world of difference. Thank you for taking the time.
Tom, I would so much appreciate a copy of the info that you offered to share. I am not suffering with cancer, my wife of 48 years is and of course she is stressed to heights most folks can’t imagine. The other part is that it has me in the same cage. We talk about enjoying our Golden anniversary in a couple of years and going fishing many more times.
Thanks so much,
Joe & June
God wants to give a way to people to heal the traumas of the past. This can be accomplished with the help of God. The person who has a trauma would have to pray to God and ask for His help for this issue. The way God will help this person is through a dream that will send to him. People will know when they have overcome a trauma of the past when they would not have hate anymore for the person which has harmed them but not anger as well. They would trust God to deliver justice for the harm they have done to them and they would not want to retaliate.
please send me your reply Tom..
Intense Trauma Therapy will help all those traumas to move from the right brain (where the brain believes it is currently happening) to the left brain (where it is left as a memory). It is a physiological approach to begin healing, and it really works. I believed that I suffered no traumas, but I went after a free assessment. The outcome is nothing short of incredible.

My daughter dearly needs help and I think your suggestion might do that.
Glad to read something in TTAC about emotional aspects that are causing physiological weakness hence opening the doors to any cancer process. Thank you Faye for your link.
Next to prayer, EFT is the most helpful tool in my toolbox. I use it almost daily for physical, mental and spiritual reasons. It can be learned by “self help” materials, webinars, seminars. And the more you do the better it gets. The more specific you get the better. If something is deeply buried in the subconscious the more time will be required but that is o.k. because you derive benefit from any and all EFT even when you are it doing for others.
One wonderful experience that I keep in the front of my mind happened at a seminar with the brilliant developer of EFT, Gary Craig (who built on the genius of a Dr. Callahan). We were to do a group process, each with our own problem and for some strange reason I couldn’t come up with an issue. I made an intention to use the letter X to represent my issue and then proceeded to follow Gary with EFT process, using X throughout. At the end I burst into tears and cried like I have never cried before. Apparently I had released a trauma that my psyche knew I could not deal with at that time. Even to this day I do not know what it was but it is gone–no longer around to cause trouble. Let me say that I was told by my doctor, after having had a mastectomy to remove two different cancers in one breast, that I was a good candidate for a recurrence of cancer. A good forty years and I am free of cancer. I have to attribute this at least partly to the gift of EFT. You can Google EFT and find unending sites. You are all in my prayers. Viirginia
Hi Virginia. Thanks for your comments here. You mention prayer. Are you a Christian, a follower of Jesus?
I’m sure I could also benefit from your “forgiveness process” Tom. Would you be able to forward it to me too?
