HEALING AND REIKI Reiki is the most widely used healing tradition and the one that can also be demonstrated to show scientifically measurable effects, because touching the patient provides stress reduction, relieves pain, and activates a well-being hormone, oxytocin.   Reiki is good to use for stress reduction and you don't need intense belief in some supernatural forces. The treatment is performed for about an hour when dressed on a treatment bench in a quiet environm...

Visualization is a relaxation technique related to meditation. In the visualization you imagine being in an environment that increases your well-being. It differs from meditation by focusing on positive images to overcome negative emotions and to master your stress.   You sit or lie in a relaxed position and concentrate on breathing, just as you do with meditation. You think of something that for you means peace and security. Perhaps you imagine that you are lying on a summer m...

Psychosynthesis is a form of therapy with a focus on self-realization. It is also a doctrine of love that accepts us as we are and attracts what we can become, our potential.   The human being consists of the body, soul, emotion and the intellect. The different parts are in intimate interaction with each other. How that interaction works is crucial for how we feel, both mentally and physically.   Psychosynthesis is based on the fact that each person is unique and...

Symbol therapy is a collective name for understanding the nonverbal within us and in communicating with others.   By working with, for example, dreams, painting, fairy tales and stories, symbolic frames, myths and dance, we get powerful tools to change our lives. When working with inner images you bravely step up paths in your inner unknown forest, making it more accessible.   When painting, it is not a question of painting consciously and planned. You don't pain...

Your psychological well-being is very important in terms of cancer recovery. If you are depressed and/or stressed the cell’s respiration becomes inadequate and the chances of recovery decrease. It can therefore be worthwhile to invest heavily and selfishly in your own psychological well-being, to strive for a tranquil soul and to – in spite of everything – try to be at peace with life.   ...

For the cancer patient, stress is not good at all. It is worthwhile to obtain information on mediation.   Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says like this:   “Meditation, or the art of soothing the soul, is an effective way to lower stress levels.

A major issue of dispute among researchers is how much the diet affects the onset of cancer. Are dietary fats causing breast cancer?   Academic researchers and representatives of school medicine suspect that fatty foods increase the risk of breast cancer. The Cancer Foundation (https://www.cancerfonden.se/livsstil/matvanor ) demands women to limit the intake of high-calorie foods that contain a lot of fat and/or sugar...

Oncologists from University of Iowa have shown that cancer cells, relative to normal cells, demonstrate significant alterations in metabolism. They propose that cancer cells increase glucose and hydroperoxide metabolism to compensate for increased levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS).   It is reasonable to propose that forcing cancer cells to use mitochondrial oxidative metabolism by feeding ketogenic diets (high in fats and low in carbohydrates), would selectively cause met...

The mental health is a resource that helps with everyday life, temporary anxiety, sudden changes and losses. Care for the mental health when you have cancer is very important. Even your mental state can be a great resistance to recovery. Therefore, it is important to seek professional help. Going into different forms of psycho or conversation therapies requires courage.   Few people know that the mental part of you influences your health almost as much as the biological and phy...

Vitamins are absolutely essential for the body's metabolism to function. The role of vitamins in the emergence of cancer has been studied very carefully.

Yoga can be practiced by anyone and by people of all ages. The goal is not to learn to stand on your head and stretch yourself into impossible body movements. The goal is concentration, a form of concentration that one can also achieve at minimal movements, if carried out under total awareness ...

Our breathing is easily influenced by stress and other emotions. We hold our breath when frightened and our breathing is often too shallow, high up in the thorax. Today breathing plays a pivotal role in stress research. It has been shown that humans can regulate their bodily functions themselves through breathing. Consciously breathing you can for example lower your blood pressure, slow your pulse and raise your body temperature.   On March 11th 2001 medical specialist Harri Li...
