Here is some very compelling research describing the personality traits that increase one’s chances for developing cancer.
If you or someone you love have a high number of these traits, you can decrease your chance for developing cancer with EPTworks™ and emotional healing. By releasing emotional and physical trauma and changing your beliefs, you can increase your assertiveness and ownership of your power to be honest and open about your needs and the practical fulfillment of those needs without the fear or avoidance of conflict.
The most important fact you need to know about cancer: Of all the people who are diagnosed with cancer; the majority survive.
The presence of traumas was important in assessing the risk of cancer and the possibility of a poor prognosis. In his study of 250 patients diagnosed with malignancy, LeShan (1956) noted that a childhood trauma was present in 62% of the cancer patients, and in only 10% of the control group. He concluded that an early emotional trauma increased the risk of cancer later in life. Such trauma would supposedly lead to an increase in tension towards one or both parents. Later, LeShan included the presence of a childhood trauma as one of the psychological indicators for predicting cancer development.
Later, LeShan (1977) reconfirmed his initial findings. He studied the life histories of 500 patients. One of the typical patterns identified was childhood trauma. Such trauma included feelings of isolation, neglect, difficult, dangerous or intense interpersonal relationships, parental deprivation and coldness. He noticed that 76% of the cancer patients showed such patterns in their past, and had also recently experienced an emotional loss. Traumatic patterns were relived through the recent emotional loss, which influenced cancer growth.
A 1946 Johns Hopkins University study: “Our results appear to agree with findings that cancer patients tend to deny and repress conflictual impulses and emotions to a higher degree than do other people.”
Certain personality features increase the risk of cancer because they are more likely to generate physiological stress.
- Repression, the inability to say “no”, and a lack of awareness of one’s anger make it much more likely that a person will find herself in situations where her emotions are unexpressed, her needs are ignored and her gentleness exploited.
- Extremely co-operative
- Lacking assertiveness
- Represses negative emotions especially anger while struggling to maintain a strong, happy façade—denial of negative emotions.
- The external appearance of a nice or good person
- A suppression of reactions that may offend others
- Avoidance of conflict
- Chronically hopeless and helpless, even though it is not consciously recognized, in the sense that the person basically believes that it is useless to express one’s needs: the needs will not or cannot be met by the environment.
