Results of a study conducted at New York's Mt. Sinai Medical Center that included 200 cancer patients undergoing radiation, were published on CBS Pittsburg today.

Half the group were given medication and the other half were treated with CBT and hypnosis.

For 6 months after the treatment, the patients were checked for fatigue at specific stages.

The researcher concluded that those treated with CBT and hypnosis experienced comparatively less fatigue up to 4 weeks after treatment.

Anxiety and worry lead to fatigue, according to Dr Guy Montgomery (with Mt. Sinai Medical Center) who commented - “They learned the skills that they needed to help themselves feel better over time and hopefully, improve their quality of life,”

Daily Mail 11 December 2014

It’s official - according to a report in today’s Daily Mail newspaper, women undergoing surgery for breast cancer recover more quickly when hypnosis is used beforehand.

These patients spend less time in hospital and if they need chemotherapy afterwards they will have fewer side-effects.

The produce works by having the anaesthetist talk gently to them before a local anaesthetic is administered.

Women who do not have hypnotherapy and are given general anaesthetics take longer to recover and experience more unwanted side effects.

At the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc hospital in Brussels, doctors claim that due to the success of hypnosis a fifth of their patients will now be given hypnotherapy.

Research that was presented in Texas at th San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium compared 110 women who had been given hypnosis with the same number who had standard surgery and the result was that the hypnotized patient’s recovery time in hospital was reduced by more than 24 hours.

A third of these who went on to have chemotherapy or radiotherapy experienced less severe nausea and fatigue than the group who had standard surgery.

The hospital researcher, Dr Martine Berliere stated that the hypnotized patients were much more positive regarding their discharge from hospital and this is attributed to the possibility that hypnosis can boost the immune system.
