Does imagery help against cancer?
Imagery is a form of therapy that uses techniques for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message. Imagery are mental exercises to enable the mind to influence the health and well-being of the body. While imagery does not directly stop the growth of cancer, the techniques can help reduce anxiety, improve depression, create feelings of being in control, and may be helpful in reducing pain. For cancer patients, imagery has been promoted as a way to ease the nausea caused by chemotherapy and reduce the stress associated with having cancer. Guided imagery is one technique that involves visualizing a specific goal to be achieved and imagining achieving that goal, much as an athlete would prior to competition. Imagery techniques should be guided by a trained health care provider, at least at the start of therapy, and are best used as a complementary therapy to conventional treatments. Remember that it is no coincidence that 4 of the 6 letters of health are heal.
