Getting To The Emotional Aspects of Cancer

At HijamaHerbs, we acknowledge the emotional aspects that brought rise to various diseases. As validated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which stated that 85% of all diseases have an emotional element. The American Medical Association (AMA) stated 80% of all health problems are stress related.

There is now numerous evidence that repressed anger and resentment play a crucial role in the development of cancer. When negative feelings are not expressed, they can contribute to physical illness over time. Repressed negative feelings, such as anger, increase a person’s level of the stress hormones, which directly suppress the immune system. When your immune system is down, it is unable to fight cancer and soon develops into a full blown cancer.

British Muslim convert Peter Chatfield who was paralyzed from the chest down due to cancer in the spine. The doctors gave him 6 months to live. He did not have many Muslim friends but desired to be surrounded by Muslims brothers. When the word was put out, hundreds of Muslims from all backgrounds came to visit him in the hospital. Many came from nearby and some came from far away. One Muslim brother even flew in from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia just to see him and fly back. Peter passed away peacefully on Nov 4, 2014. (Ilmfeed)

A team of researchers at Stanford University in California found that women who repressed their emotions were more likely to show disruptions in the normal balance of the stress hormone cortisol, compared with those who did not. Earlier studies have shown that the unbalanced cortisol fluctuations can predict early death in women with breast cancer that has spread to other areas of the body.

“People who have repressive styles tend to be more prone to illness, particularly [immune-system related] diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, infections, and cancers. The concept is of unexpressed anger. If one doesn’t let it out, that could have adverse consequences.”  ~University of California Los Angeles

The National Cancer Institute says that research with animal models suggests that “your body’s neuroendocrine response (release of hormones into your blood in response to stimulation of your nervous system) can directly alter important processes in cells that help protect against the formation of cancer, such as DNA repair and the regulation of cell growth.”

“Extreme suppression of anger was the most commonly identified characteristic of 160 breast cancer patients who were given a detailed psychological interview and self-administered questionnaire. Repressing anger magnified exposure to physiological stress, thereby increasing the risk of cancer.” ~Journal of Psychosomatic Research

“Extremely low anger scores have been noted in numerous studies of patients with cancer. Such low scores suggest suppression, repression, or restraint of anger. There is evidence to show that suppressed anger can be a precursor to the development of cancer, and also a factor in its progression after diagnosis.” ~Cancer Nursing – International Journal

A study comparing long-term survivors of breast cancer with those who did not survive, scientists at John Hopkins University found that long-term survivors expressed much higher levels of anxiety, hostility and other negative emotions.  Patients who were able to express their feelings lived longer than those who had difficulty in doing so. ~Journal of the American Medical Association.

Peter Chatfield, who was dying of cancer, received hundreds of visitors after appealing to the Muslim world via social media. “I am truly blessed,” Peter said, “I don’t turn anyone away. In the last few days I have had over 400 visitors. I’m so thrilled and feel so blessed to be so loved. That is the most important thing here – love.” He added, “I wish everyone here at the hospital a speedy recovery. There’s so much you learn about human nature and life. Some people don’t receive a single visit and I have hundreds.” “It’s so sad but that is the reality of life. People need to take a minute and spend some time with their loved ones.

In people with cancer, there exists both a combination of emotional as well as physical stresses that have contributed to the formation of cancer within the body.

On an emotional level, cancer is brought about by repressed anger and resentment, depression, isolation, poor sleep, emotional trauma and general life stressors.

On a physical level, cancer came about due to poor nutrition, chemicals, toxins, EMF radiation, parasites and chronic infections.

Below are the six separate phases showing how stress develops into cancer. This is how cancer forms within the body at the cellular level over an 18-24 month period.

Phase 1 – Emotional Trauma
Emotional trauma affects deep sleep and the production of melatonin within the body. Melatonin is necessary for inhibiting cancer cell growth and is the primary hormone responsible for regulating the immune system. During this phase a part of the emotional reflex center in the brain slowly breaks down due to the emotional trauma.

Phase 2 – Stress Suppresses The Immune System
The immune system is suppressed by elevated stress hormone cortisol levels. An individual experiencing severe prolonged emotional stress is exhausted. Their adrenals and thyroid are fatigued. Mineral levels are depleted, as stress depletes minerals. Minerals are needed for the immune system to function. The immune system begins to weaken.

Somatids in our blood turn to become more aggressive bacteria, yeast and fungus-like structures that are parasitic. They slowly begin to destroy the body’s cellular structures. This is associated with the development of all diseases, including cancer. Cancer is associated with the last stage of decay of the somatids.

Phase 3 – Stress Causes Glucose Levels to Rise
High stress hormone cortisol levels cause adrenaline to become depleted in the body. This causes glucose (sugar) levels to rise within normal cells. The main purpose of adrenaline is to remove and convert glucose from cells for energy for the body, just as it is the main purpose of insulin to transport glucose into cells. 

When the adrenaline reserves are depleted, glucose (sugar) levels increase sharply within the cells leaving little room for oxygen. Many cancer patients are weak and lethargic because they have little or no adrenaline to convert the glucose in their cells into energy for the body. Their cells subsequently have very little room left to accept oxygen from the blood.

Feeling the need of many lonely patients, a young Muslim woman Eliya Hammad, a Palestinian student at George Washington University has kicked off a new hospital visiting program in a Virginia mosque, to help people suffering health problems during their stay in hospital. The program encourages volunteers to visit people who are in the hospital with no friends or family members to pay them visit. (About Islam)

Phase 4 – Fungus Feeds on Glucose
Subsequently, virus-bacteria-fungus that have established themselves in a weakened part of the body, enter normal cells to feed on this excess glucose. This fermentation of glucose causes “mycotoxins” (a highly acidic waste product) to be released.

Lack of oxygen and cell energy causes normal cells to mutate during the dividing process creating new cancer cells. The body becomes highly acidic (low pH) due to the waste by-products caused by these viral-bacterial-yeast-like fungus. Viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, candida and cancer cells thrive in a low pH acidic environment.

Phase 5 – Fungus and Cancer form Symbiotic Relationship
The viral-bacterial-yeast-like fungus form a symbiotic relationship with newly created cancer cells. Yeast-like fungus is symbiotic in nature and feeds on the high levels of glucose for reproduction of new somatids. The yeast-like fungus provides a natural fermentation process. It ferments the glucose within the tumor, providing energy and a natural growth factor in return. The yeast-like fungus uses the cancer cells as a host or house for their rich reserves of glucose and stimulates these cancer cells to propagate more houses. The result is a tumor.

Yeast-like fungus prevent cancer cells reverting back into normal healthy cells as they continue to cause “mycotoxins” to be released (a highly acidic waste product), meaning cancer cells in a sense are held hostage to the yeast-like fungus that inhabit them.

Phase 6 – Stress Stimulates Cancer Cell Growth and Metastases
During this final phase elevated stress hormone causes the breakdown of the structure of tumor cell walls making it easier for them to spread to other parts of the body, a process known as metastasis. 

Every day, our bodies are exposed to cancer-causing agents in the air, food and water. Typically, our immune system recognizes those abnormal cells and kills them before they produce a tumor. However, when emotional and physical stress decreases the body’s ability to fight disease, it loses the ability to fight cancer.
