The Role of Psychotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer pp. 429-438 $0.00
Authors:  (Don Benjamin)
There are two main theories about cancer: the orthodox cancer paradigm sees the tumour as the disease that starts locally and spreads to distant sites; the alternative paradigm sees cancer as a systemic disease affecting the whole body with tumours being late-stage symptoms. Objective: To identify the causal factors in cancer that successful psychotherapy appears to address and to develop a rationale for treatment. Method: Several alternative cancer therapies were assessed to identify the most effective based on randomised controlled trials. These were then analysed to determine their main principles. Other therapies not evaluated in RCTs but with good evidence for efficacy were also identified to clarify some of the cancer causing factors with a view to determining a rationale for treatment. Results: The most effective psychotherapy appears to be Creative Novation Behaviour Therapy developed by Ronald Grossarth-Maticek. This suggests the existence of a cancer prone personality that can be changed to a healthy autonomous one. The most effective immunotherapies were Issels‘ Wholebody Therapy and Iscador. Conclusion: An hypothesis of cancer causation emerges, viz that the cancer prone personality determines who gets cancer. Treatment should therefore be wholistic and systemic; focus on identifying the important causative factors in the particular person‘s personality; and use a range of therapies to remove or minimise these factors.
