Imaging Cancer Away (depression down lymphocytes tumor spleen)
"Anna had been given three months to live. The malignant tumor, growing
rapidly at the back of her neck, had virtually crippled her. Her upper body
was hunched over, her head was forced painfully to one side, and her right
arm was contracted and paralyzed. The best thing she could do, said her
doctor, was to go home and make arrangements for the future of her young son
Instead Anna learned how to "image." She conceived the tumor to be a dragon
on her back and her white blood cells as knights attacking the dragon with
swords. A year later, the tumor had shrunk. Later, it disappeared
complete-ly. Can "imaging" work? Obviously, this is a very controversial
Admittedly, little real scientific research has been done on imaging per
se -- it is a bit too radical a concept. But a few scientists are beginning
to chart the chemistry and information flow in the mind-body relationship.
For example, the death of a spouse has long been associated with the
increased mortality of the surviving spouse. Clinical studies of bereaved
spouses reveal fewer circulating lymphocytes, which help the body fight
disease, and significantly higher levels of cortisol, a substance that
suppresses the immune system's response to disease.
Although it is very early in the game, there are verifiable correlations
between state-of-mind and body chemistry. Further, other researchers have
found that there are sympathetic nerve terminals in such organs as the
spleen and lymph nodes, both of which play important parts in defending the
body. Imaging just might send the right signals through these terminals,
while depression might tend to shut the defense system down.
