The relationship of cancer and the emotional sphere of the person

In our days there are many “official” theory of the origin of cancer. They describe the impact of viruses, mutations and carcinogens, as a starting factor in the development of the disease. But increasingly, says that cancer is caused by stress, a kind of negative emotional landscape, against which a disease occurs. That is, it becomes apparent that the problem of cancer psychological roots.

Cancer have psychological roots

Later, this view received confirmation. It is proved that the condition of the emotional sphere significantly affect immune and endocrine systems of the body. Psychosomatic disease occurs when this influence becomes too strong. Ancient Chinese medicine regarded the tumor as a result of the accumulation and stagnation of blood and vital energy. Malignant tumors were characterized as insensitive clusters, that is, devoid of life, alien to the body. Therefore, their treatment was not only used drugs affecting the tumor itself, but also practiced the Tao, as a way to change the style of life.

Known cancer metaphor – “stone heart”. Over time, if not remove, the stone turns into a tumor. In the case of Oncology there is a transition from external psychological problems to the inner – somatic. The organ that is damaged by tumor, symbolizes external dangers do not get to fight in an adequate way. Oncology is actually a capitulation, a shift of the problem from the realm of personal responsibility towards taking care of: “now Let my problem get to a doctor, I can’t do it”.

What triggers the cancer response?

Reference point becomes the trauma of the event, after which it is impossible to live as before. She seems to divide life into “before” and “after”, and the person breaks down on dotravmaticheskoe and after a traumatic. Adequately experienced a traumatic event allows you to live in the changed conditions. But if we ignore reality, not accept it, the body can begin to form a tumor. To close her eyes no longer work.

For “traumatic” equations need

For “traumatic” equations need the following conditions: first, the principles, attitudes and rules by which the structuring of life and, second, the embeddedness in events with these principles at some point begins to disperse. For example, a man emotionally involved in a romantic relationship with an “unsuitable” from the point of view of the relatives of the girl. For some time the loyalty of the parent system will keep him in a stable relationship “between the crocodile and the lion,” but one day he will have to make a choice – to follow their desires or to abandon them.

The betrayal itself is a vivid example of chronic injury. Acute injury occurs as a response to the detection of any reality whose existence is in contradiction with existing representations. The discovery of reality hurts. For example, a woman who grew up in a very strict family, suddenly finds himself in sexual desire that threaten her own identity: “I’m good , exemplary spouse.” And then you can either be thankful for finding something that was not available, or include a powerful repressive mechanisms aimed at the expulsion of the psyche outrageous information. However, these mechanisms don’t work as well as stick-zabavushka from the movie “Men in black” and therefore expelled from the consciousness information is always returned, though on a somatic level.

One day a young woman’s life changes dramatically, she put a fatal diagnosis. She is fired, her boyfriend dumps her. To live remains only two months, and she throws all caution trying to finally implement their unfulfilled desires… the movie “the Guitar” (The Guitar, 2008) .

Often we can observe a situation in which the individual is actually a “clone” of the other. He doesn’t understand what he’s got desire. Instead, it translates the desire of another as your own, or compromise claims in exchange for guaranteed consistency in a relationship. That is the phenomenon dependent relationship, when the emptiness inside is filled with active activities in the periphery and one of the partners is forced to abandon yourself in favor of another, believing that his life is more important and more valuable than your own. The dependent relationship is dangerous because, ending, leave one of the partners in a state of total loneliness, when there is no possibility to rely on himself.

In this situation takes a whole life, which lined up around the relationship. Typical personal reaction to such experiences is the feeling of helplessness and despair, when discouraged and force anything to do. And it was at this point more than ever you need to move on. Symbolically the message body in the form of a cancer response is: “Change or die”. Some time a person stays at a standstill, when the solution to the old ways could not be found. And then remains either to explore new opportunities, or as a solution to resort to physical care.
