Why feeling helpless is so powerful
In his book “Anti-Cancer” David Servan-Schreiber talks about the impact of helplessness on the outcomes of cancer and today I want to share with you just how powerful helplessness can be.
Hi. I’m Nikki, the Truth Fairy from Choosing Differently.com and I’m here to help you find your way to heal cancer.
The research on helplessness
So there are a couple of pieces of research on this topic that I want to share with you.
Cancer and depression
The first was a meta-analysis of a number of different studies that showed that patients with chronic depression and cancer had a 39% higher risk of dying than patients with cancer alone.
So being chronically depressed increased the risk of dying.
Learning to make changes
And a second study of a group of women who were trained to make simple changes in their lives – simple relaxation exercises, making changes to their diet, getting more exercise, learning to reach out and ask for help and support.
And the women with breast cancer who made these changes had a 70% reduction in death rate.
That’s one big effect!
Both of those numbers are massive.
The power that feeling helpless can have on the outcomes of cancer is absolutely mind-blowing.
But they’re just thoughts and feelings…
They’re just some thoughts and some feelings, that’s it.
You have power in your hands
But if some simple thoughts and feelings can have such an impact on the outcomes of cancer, think about the power that you hold in your hands to make a difference to your experience.
And realize just how many things that you really do have the power to control in your experience.
How many things you can do.
And that taking an active role, taking charge of your healing journey could be the single most important thing that you do.
Use that power to change your experience
So take charge, get informed, make decisions, be your own advocate, and acknowledge all the things you can control and that you can do to make a difference.
And you might just change everything.
And that is the true power of helplessness.
