Getting a diagnosis of a serious illness can be a traumatic experience. And trauma has its own health risks. Unresolved, it can compromise the immune system because it can heighten the response of the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for producing stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones reduce the efficiency of the immune system.
However, there is a very simple therapeutic technique for healing trauma called the rewind. This has been shown to be enormously effective in treating both major traumas such as those experienced in war zones (cf www.ptsdresolution.org), as well as those from medical diagnoses. It also seems to get very good results helping people to move beyond much more insignificant “little ‘t'” traumas that we can all experience in our daily living.
So, in order to make the most of your medical treatment, a first good step can be to assess how you’re feeling about your diagnosis itself, and take the time to work through any trauma.
