Hamer's work and Time Line Therapy®, which developed
from NLP, has given us new skills in cancer treatment.
Recognizing how the mind body connection affects
cancer treatment, patients can relieve the trauma
of cancer through Time Line Therapy®, and trigger
a natural healing response.
hundred fifty years ago bloodletting was the cure-all
for most diseases. Perhaps in the future when people look
back to today, they will feel similarly miffed that we
understood so little. Great strides have been made in
diagnosing, understanding, and in the use of technology
in healing. These advancements are wonderful and to be
applauded. To assume that there is nowhere else to look
is short sighted and close minded.
As we are becoming increasingly aware of how the mind
and body are interconnected, new possibilities for healing
"dis-ease" and long standing human problems
are being discovered.
A most fascinating study is that of Dr. Hamer, who while practicing
in Rome, Italy witnessed his 18 year old son being shot and
killed. Several years later Dr. Hamer developed testicular
cancer. He had surgery and survived. Afterwards he moved to
Bavaria and became very curious about the connection between
emotional trauma and cancer. He studied and researched over
What he discovered and asserts is that a severe psychological
shock or conflict precedes all cancer. He says, "you
isolate yourself, and do not share your emotions with others.
You are upset and do not share with others - you're obsessed
about conflict. This conflict changes your life completely
- you will never be the same again." This type of Significant
Emotional Experience or SEE, says Hamer, occurs one to three
years before the onset of the first cancer symptoms.
According to Hamer, when a major SEE happens, there is a trapped
emotion in the brain, the brain suffers what could be described
as a minor stroke (leaving a lesion in the brain). It then
starts sending the wrong information to a certain part of
the body and cancer growth starts in that area. The nature
of the SEE determines where in the brain the lesion occurs
and consequently the type of cancer and it's growth. A skilled
MD can see these lesions on the brain with a CT Scan.
Hamer reports that in all cases where the negative SEE is
released (i.e. the negative emotions are cleared or resolved
through some psychological methods), then edema (or water)
appears around the lesion and healing begins. This edema around
the lesion he observed with follow up CT-Scans on all patients
who successfully overcame the cancer.
To successfully release the SEE preceding the cancer, Dr.
Tad James, who developed Time Line Therapyâ, finds it
best to go for the root cause of all negative emotions and
limiting decisions, including any decisions around the disease.
By going for the root cause, which can go to a much earlier
period and is linked to the event that triggered the cancer,
makes healing more long lasting. According to Hamer and James,
cancer does not metastasize (spread to other parts of the
body by splitting off and traveling through the blood stream).
Researchers have not been able to cause cancer cells to metastasize
in any laboratory experiments.
Rather, Hamer and James say that any additional SEE, such
as getting the horrific news of the cancer diagnosis, etc.,
will cause new cancer growth. The most common area spread
to is the lymph, which is related to fear, and the lungs,
related to fear of death.
One client I saw had successfully overcome cancer 12 years
earlier and then had a relapse. We cleared all the negative
emotions, limiting decisions and the root cause of the cancer.
There hasn't been any cancer for three years now and she's
doing things she only dreamed of before.
The University of Calgary, Department of Medicine, now uses
Time Line Therapyâ as a textbook in one of its oncology
(cancer) treatment classes for training medical doctors. Several
psychology departments including St. Joseph's College in Michigan
teach it to psychology students. There is hope when people
are willing to look farther and deeper to find techniques
and alternatives for healing.
