Hypnosis and hypnotherapy ease the pain of chemotherapy by reducing and/or eliminating nausea. See how it is possible to reprogram your mind to not vomit during the course of chemotherapy.

Hypnosis can reduce or eliminate nausea during chemotherapy

Nausea is one of the unpleasant results of chemotherapy treatments.  The amount and intensity of the nausea from chemotherapy are the result of the course of treatment administered by your doctor as well as your body’s chemical reaction to the drugs.

Society has identified nausea as a “known” result of having chemotherapy.  Everyone knows someone who has had chemo and they said they were vomiting regularly throughout it.  This creates in our brain an expectation “it will happen to me.”  Your brain creates the expectation and your subconscious mind carries out the orders.

Anticipating Nausea

This type of nausea is no different than when a hypnotherapist tells someone they feel warm sun on their body as they stroll along a beach.  The expectation is planted in their subconscious mind and the mind executes that command easily and effortlessly.  The body and mind execute the experience on the beach – no different than how society telling you nausea comes with chemotherapy.  Hypnosis is powerful stuff!

The mind is the most amazing, self-healing mechanism

Your brain controls nausea and vomiting.  Nausea is connected and controlled by autonomic nerves.  Different “inputs” such as smells, tastes, pain, chemicals and anxieties can trigger the part of the brain that initiates the vomit reflex in the body.

Using hypnosis we can retrain the brain to interpret these inputs as a different experience.  During the hypnotic state we calm down the body’s instinctive reactions and give the brain new commands for what to do when the body is flooded with traditional inputs society has labeled as vomit triggering.

Hypnosis can help

In a study in American Health Magazine, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a 93% success rate compared with lower results from other methods of therapy which require far more sessions.  Click here to learn more about hypnosis and its high success rate.
