Synopsis: This writing describes the attributes of the personality that is most likely to develop cancer.
The effective alternative approach to fighting cancer usually encompasses several kinds of considerations. I will occasionally emphasize one of them. This article is dealing with stress. When we are “nice” at the expense of our health, we set ourselves up to develop disease.
Civilization has it’s price. We cannot afford to allow situations to continually gnaw at our insides in silence. “Every doctor is familiar with the “”cancer personality”” …. “”The nicest person in the world”” say his friends and relatives, “”This should not have happened to him””. (Dr. Kennedy)
Dr. Kennedy has spelled out the effect of stress on producing cancer and other diseases. He does not stress the importance of relieving stress to treat disease in this article. However, much evidence shows this to be true.
Remember, it is the immune system that fights cancer and stress is devastating to our immune system. This may be the most difficult area of managing our lives in order to get well. We are loyal to our relationships at the expense of our health. I have seen it over and over again. Folks just can’t convince themselves that certain drastic changes may be in order for us to manage our recovery well.
I was compelled to make some drastic changes in my personal relationships in order to deal with the stress that promoted my cancer by shutting down my immune system. The relationships are not resolved, and I expect that they will never be resolved. I have placed myself outside the combat zone. This makes some people unhappy, but that is part of the price that must be paid if I am to survive.
