Can emotional traumas, if left unresolved, lead to cancer?
The answer, per the latest research on stress, the emotions, and cancer… is an unequivocal Yes!
How Chronic Stress Effects Cancer
There are many situations that can cause the “bottom to fall out” of our lives. They can cause chronic stress, emotional trauma, and even leave us with medically-diagnosable psychological disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
According to the latest research on stress, the emotions, and cancer… this emotional trauma can actually create cancer.
Problems arise when emotional trauma goes unhealed and the body system is in a constant state of heightened stress. A recent report shows how the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) can encourage metastasis when it is chronically activated.
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 which can lead to several pro-cancer processes.
“According to the latest research on stress, the emotions, and cancer… this emotional trauma can actually create cancer.”
Dr. Douglas Brodie, MD, is a pioneer in understanding the connection between the emotions, the mind, and cancer. His work has shown that most individuals diagnosed with cancer have similar psychological traits.
Among these characteristics is experiencing a traumatizing and emotionally-damaging event roughly two years before getting a cancer diagnosis.
The good news is there are dozens of modalities that can help heal the wounds of emotional trauma and reduce chronic stress that can lead to cancer. Besides having a body rid of toxins.

4 Ways to Heal Emotional Trauma and Lower Chronic Stress
#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.
“Problems arise when emotional trauma goes unhealed and the body system is in a constant state of heightened stress.”
#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. A healthy body is a happy body.
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 daily.
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 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.
