(PRWEB UK) 23 August 2013
According to an article published by the Express on August 13, research has indicated that four in ten cancers could be prevented by changing your diet.
A report released by the World Health Organisation has indicated statistics into the relationship between obesity and cancer, stating that being overweight increases the risk of breast cancer after the menopause, colorectal and pancreatic cancers. The report indicates that 18% of cancer diagnoses are related to obesity or being overweight. The organisation also states that obesity and being overweight is one of the most avoidable causes of cancer.
The article published by the Express questions whether losing weight will normalise your risk of cancer or if there would be remaining risk, but states that losing weight is one way of preventing an increase of risk of cancer, as well as the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Senior health information officer for Cancer Research UK, Yinka Ebo, told the Express that:
“Some cancers are linked to our genes, age or environment, factors we can’t change. Many are linked to the way we live.”
Many people have found that complementary therapies such as hypnotherapy are an effective method of losing weight. The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) connects members of the general public with professional, skilled hypnotists throughout the UK who are qualified to help with a wide range of issues, including weight loss. A representative for the company said:
“Sessions of hypnotherapy focus on the reasons for overeating, rather than drastically reducing calorie intake. Hypnotherapy sessions also help you to develop techniques to manage your diet as well as increasing your motivation for exercise.”
NCH represents over 1800 hypnotherapy professionals within the UK and is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst our members. Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites. As one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) is actively involved with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and strives to develop standards for the benefit of the profession, now and into the future.
