By Poorvi Mittal April 2004 Cancer is deep resentment held for a long time until it literally replaces every cell of the body. But we do have the free will to go on from here and create a new reality for ourselves. Dr Poorvi Mittal is a homoeopath who incorporates other alternative modalities in her practice at The Clinic in Delhi.

It also occurs in women whose sexuality is suppressed or if they are mentally traumatised, in a marriage or relationships If a rope is tied around the leg of a baby elephant and attached to a stake in the ground, it slowly learns that it has very narrow limits. It learns to restrict its life so as to adjust to its confinement. Years later it grows up to be a powerful adult, with power to uproot a tree, yet it gives up its free will, to remain in the confines of a life staked to the ground. Such is the power that our conditioning wields on us. It prevents us from unleashing our true potential, just because somewhere down the line some people decided that certain things are impossible, one of them being the idea that cancer is incurable.These are all habits of thought learnt and accumulated since the day we were born. As a habit of thought we are led to believe that cancer is the end of the road and so we dread it. If we were to change our habits of thought and behaviour, we can modify our body’s response to cancer. We are not just physical bodies, we are in fact also a dynamic energy field, which is in constant exchange with the universe. Our essential field is one of infinite possibilities and the event that is precipitated is the one we lend our thought process to. If our mind associates cancer with death, ‘dying’ is the event that will be precipitated and if we change that and associate cancer with understanding more about ourselves and overcoming it, ‘cure’ is the event that will be precipitated. We are blessed among species that we can change our perceptions and subsequently modify our cellular memories to transform our disease reality. If we can change our perception and modify our action we can literally create a new physical body. The Kriya Yoga technique as practised by the Siddha Yogis is one such powerful tool with which the physical body can be transformed completely. We can influence the course our cancer takes by the choices we make. Most researchers and medical practitioners (oncologists) ignore anomalies. But in fact anomalies are the phenomenon that leads to breakthroughs. They are what we should be studying. If something breaks the rule, no matter what it is, no matter how remote the possibility, it means a new possibility has arisen. If there is a new possibility then there has to be a new mechanism. Even if one out of a million persons suffering from cancer cures himself, i.e. goes into spontaneous remission, we have to pay attention because it means that somewhere there is a mechanism of cure to account for it, and if we study enough such cases then we can understand this mechanism and resolve it. My tryst with understanding cancer started about four years back. At that time I had a small homoeopathic practice. I have always been fascinated by cancer right from the time I was a final year student at the homoeopathic college. What is this thing that our body creates that is so powerfully parasitic to the extent it destroys its own creation? At that time I was reading a lot about it and any data I could find I would try and assimilate, so as to build my understanding of this massive disease phenomenon. I was treating three people, who were suffering from various types of cancer, each coming from a different socio-economic background. One was a 33-year-old woman suffering from ovarian cancer, another a 50-year-old lady with breast cancer and the third was a 38-year-old with malignant non-Hodgkins lymphoma. As it is with homoeopathy, we are used to taking detailed case histories. One thing I found common in all these people was tremendous anger and resentment, despite their vastly different origins and life spaces. The ovarian cancer patient had a history of multiple sexual abuse as a child at the hand of domestics. The one with breast cancer had a lot of anger against her children who had left her. And the man who had non-Hodgkins lymphoma had tremendous anger against his mother and sister over certain vital issues. I started reading New Age literature and came up with startling facts. One thing that all of them stated and repeatedly verified was that mostly cancer is a by-product of tremendous anger either expressed or suppressed. And more often the tumour exists at the very seat of anger in the physical body, like the woman with ovarian cancer who was abused. Her sexuality was abused and it was in her sex organs that the cancer manifested itself. Statistics stand testimony to the fact that cancer of the cervix is common in prostitutes. It also occurs in women whose sexuality is suppressed or if they are mentally traumatised, in a marriage or relationships. Deep down they are angry and hurt as to what has been done to them and that anger comes out in the form of a tumour. People with laryngeal cancer are frequently those who have not been able to express their feelings out to people who hurt them, and when this happens time and again a nodule forms which ultimately becomes malignant. There is always a lot of grief eating away at the self. If it is not grief, then there is a lot of hatred. A tumour is a false growth. An oyster takes in a tiny grain of sand and to protect itself grows a hard and protective shell around it. We call it a pearl and think it is beautiful. In the same way, we take an old hurt and nurse it, everytime a scab starts forming, we pull it off by re-inviting it in our thoughts and slowly over time we have a tumour. That is the reason why women have so many tumours in the uterine region. Just because a relationship does not work out the way we want it, it does not mean that there is something wrong with us. It does not lessen our self-worth. It is not what happens but how we react to it that is important and in our reaction lies the answer to the event that precipitates the outcome of our disease. I believe that we create every so-called illness in our body. The body, like everything else in our life is a mirror of our inner thoughts—it is always talking to us. We must listen to it. To every illness there is a mental pattern and at the expense of sounding rhetorical I must reinforce—cancer is deep resentment held for a long time until it literally replaces every cell of the body. Something happens more often in childhood that destroys our subconscious sense of trust. The experience is never forgotten by the mind and our subconscious lives in the pity of it. Life subsequently becomes a series of diseases, hopelessness, helplessness that ultimately terminates in cancer. In this I agree with the medical world’s views—cancer is a terminal disease. It is the end-point of our habits of anger, resentment and helplessness but we do have the free will to go on from here and create a new reality for ourselves. This we can do by changing our habits and thought patterns. I can write endlessly on this subject, but like all life issues, especially diseases, one has to ultimately get down to changing our thought pattern. Many people with cancer have done that and have succeeded and consequently cured themselves. A case in point is that of Louise Hay (her book titled You Can Heal Yourself) and Brandon Bays (The Journey). They could cure themselves because they were healers. You can do it yourself too—but if you need support, I am there to help. My approach to healing cancer is using multiple modalities. As a practising homoeopath, my view is that homoeopathy helps in taking care of the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but does not induce remission. With acupuncture, which I also practise, I discovered that it raised the body’s energy levels and helped in controlling the spread of the tumour in the physical body. But my final breakthrough came when I studied Hypnosis and the Theory of the Mind with Dr Sunny Satin of the California Hypnosis Institute. From that time onwards each moment has been of great revelation and I seem to live in the euphoria of the power of mind. Today I practise using a combination of homoeopathy, acupuncture, hypnosis and past life regression therapy. I am helped by my friends: Preeti who is a hypnotherapist and psychotherapist, Roma who is a Reiki master and hypnotherapist and Anita who is a clinical hypnotherapist and past life regression therapist. We at The Clinic believe that cancer is curable… we help in bringing up the cause with hypnotherapy and past life regression, understanding the cause, accepting and then releasing it… thus bringing on healing.
