HELPING PATIENTS WITH CANCER, by Richard E. Gill, Assistant Editor, The American Psychologist [emphases are added by me, RJC.]
When we returned from Honolulu our mail was waiting for us. On the top of the pile was a newspaper THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGIST. The headline read, “Breast Cancer Survival Rates improve with psychological intervention.”
The story continued:
“IN WHAT COULD BE A MAJOR STEP IN THE BATTLE AGAINST BREAST CANCER, an 11 year study by Ohio State University’s Department of Psychology shows that psychological intervention may very well improve a woman/s survival rate.
The study showed that breast cancer victims might have a better chance of survival, said Barbara Anderson, PhD, professor of psychology, if they join a quality psychological intervention group conducted by an experienced therapist.
Of the 227 women who joined in the study, 114 received psychological intervention programs, while 113 received assessment only, Anderson said. “Findings of the study established that patients receiving the intervention had less than half the risk of death from breast cancer compared to those who did not receive intervention and had a reduced risk of death from all causes, not just cancer.”
Published in the December issue of Cancer, the peer–reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the study indicates that reducing stress that can accompany cancer diagnosis and treatment can have a significant impact on patients’ survival.
Anderson said the findings could have a major impact on the study of breast cancer, “…we certainly hope it has a major impact. We worked really hard to find a study to answer the question: Can psychological intervention reduce the risk for re-occurrence of breast cancer and death? We are confident our findings are real.”
In the near future I will comment in detail on the possible intriguing meanings of this curious comment from this brilliant clinical researcher.
Many researchers have theorized that providing mental health services in addition to cancer care may improve a patient’s health and even prolong their survival but studies linking psychotherapy to improved survival have had inconsistent results. According to Anderson, this study is another step in helping breast cancer victims live longer. “That’s exactly what we found,” she added.
BREAST CANCER SURVIVAL RATES IMPROVE WITH PSYCHOLOGICAL INTERVENTION [headline on page 2 of National Psychologist]
Interventions included strategies to reduce stress and enhance their relationship with friends and family coping effectively improving mood, offering health behavior, especially with diets, and maintaining adherence to cancer treatment and care. Anderson said the study was weak in the area of exercise, but she is confident that exercise plays a significant role in overall health.
Just as important, the study had a significant impact on immune enhancement. Effects of this study concerning immunity were very robust, she said. A large sample of cancer victims who came into the study had high levels of stress that were related to lower levels of immunity.
We know that in those who joined interventions their immunity went up. We’re not guessing, we know that intervention affected immunity, she said. The interventions had a very powerful psychological effect and very powerful behavioral effects. It’s clear that they had health benefits… and survival benefits.”
Said Anderson, “Interventions may impact immune changes that are secondary to stress hormones that may promote cancer growth or metastasis and that in addition to treating cancer patients with powerful anti-tumor medications it also important to treat psychological distress as well.”
The American Cancer Society says there are in excess of 100,000 potential breast cancer victims in this country. Anderson hopes the results of this pragmatic study will persuade psychologists to start cancer patients intervention groups around the country.
“If efficacious psychological interventions to reduce stress are delivered early they will improve mental health and treatment relevant behavior and potentially, biologic outcomes,” Anderson said.
Dr Mary Cowley, PhD, TFT-VT, shares ways to achieve optimal health through Thought Field Therapy.
Janet Thomson, a diagnostic level TFT practitioner, certified nutritionist and author in the UK, did an excellent job of demonstrating the effectiveness of TFT last Wednesday, 4 March, as a guest on BBC Radio 2’s CHRIS EVANS SHOW.
She did 2 live pieces chatting to Chris, and in between eliminating a kebab addiction (no joke!) and reducing cravings for a smoker and a wine lover she got to chat about Dr. Callahan (TFT Founder and Developer) and how brilliant he is and the whole thing was great coverage for TFT.
If you want to listen you can, for the next few days at least (it’s usually live for 7 days so up till midnight Tuesday UK time) you can either listen to the show again (Wednesday) from Chris’s homepage here or download the podcast by clicking here. One of TFT’s other practitioners reported that Janet’s bits are at 21:35 and 1:12:00.
Janet said, “I know some other UK based therapists have already had inquiries as a result so it’s great for all of us and importantly credits Roger as its creator.”
There has been another bit of media in the UK as well, this time about Lloyd Watkins, TFT Dx, and TFT helping panic attacks and anxiety relief. It also talks about NHS trusts and complimentary medicine acceptance of TFT:
Fortunately, such therapy types are now available in the UK, albeit only via private treatment, as even though the NHS Trusts Association (NHSTS) have now officially recognized the value of modern therapies such as Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and included them in their directory of complementary medicine, they are not yet available under NHS funded schemes. Lloyd Watkins our head therapist who alongside specialising in helping panic attack sufferers, teaches TFT to the exacting standards required by the NHS, said recently “its great news that the NHSTA have at long last recognised the benefits of TFT. This will now lead the way to wider exposure of this fantastic method and hopefully open the door to it eventually becoming available in hospitals and clinics throughout the country; something long overdue.” http://www.beonform.com/

There is a new, excellent article in Vision magazine talking about the benefits of TFT for anxiety and stress relief. It is an interview with TFT practitioner Sharon Goodlove, whose is trained through the advanced, Optimal Health level of TFT which includes Voice Technology. Sharon has been a long time practitioner and the interview is great for increasing awareness of the benefits of using Thought Field Therapy for anxiety and stress in today’s chaotic times.

If I told you that you could completely rid yourself of fear, anxiety and stress in a matter of minutes, what would you say?
That’s what Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is all about. By simply tapping on acupressure points in a specific order, you balance the body’s energy system and release negative emotions.
I discovered this modality during a stressful time in my life in which I thankfully found my way to the cozy office of Sharon Goodlove, Certified Thought Field Therapy Diagnostician. She showed me how to treat myself in one session. Recently we spoke again—this time to empower others to release negativity and heal themselves through TFT. Read more
We have had many requests for a recording of our recent TFT and Cancer Teleclass. It was a very exciting call, with some new and important information about how TFT can help those with cancer. We were joined by individuals from 10 countries and the comments we have received from participants are excellent.
Dr. Callahan introduced some new research supporting the value of psychological interventions for cancer patients. He also discussed the “Electrical Theory of Cancer” and research that was done decades ago in support of this theory but largely ignored by mainstream medicine.
We learned about 16 ways that TFT can help cancer sufferers, including how important treating past traumas may be, based on Dr. Hamer’s theory of much cancer being caused by past traumas.
He talked about the importance of the use of a voltmeter for identifying negative polarities and new ways of correcting them.
The class was recorded and is now available as an MP3 file. If you wish to receive this audio file, please contact Chris – Chris@tftrx.com .
