This new model of health and healing is an inside-out process that incorporates the notion that the unconscious mind is at the base of any departure from health as well as recovering from ill health.
EDMONTON, Alberta (PRWEB) January 29, 2015
Author Francisco O. Valenzuela, Ph.D., boldly advocates for hypnosis as a valuable tool in the health and healing of cancer in his new book, “Psycho-Oncology, Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Healing in Cancer” (published by Trafford Publishing).
Using his own experiences as a prisoner in concentration camps and torture chambers in Chile and Argentina, Valenzuela demonstrates the power of the human mind to control emotions and manage pain. When his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, he branched out to explore the capabilities of the unconscious mind to control sickness and healing.
“Every cancer sufferer, caregiver and professional working in this field is aware of the devastating effect of fear, lack of control and associated pathological emotion networks surfacing during treatment,” Valenzuela says. “This new model of health and healing is an inside-out process that incorporates the notion that the unconscious mind is at the base of any departure from health as well as recovering from ill health.”
Valenzuela hopes to inspire readers to take full advantage of the reservoir of knowledge in their unconscious minds to solve their problems of living and thriving.
