Does Positive Thinking Cure Cancer?

This was the question asked on CBS’s Sunday Morning show today.

Naturally, they had polarized responses leaving the viewer with inconclusive results. I would like to weigh in on this subject.

The issue is that they didn’t define positive thinking. Many people would define positive thinking as just thinking happy thoughts. This simplistic approach actually might work if the conscious mind was in charge.

However, our subconscious thoughts and limited beliefs ‘drive our bus’. Most folks would be shocked to realize the limiting beliefs they hold on a subconscious level. This suppressed material is a precursor to disease. Given this reality, positive thinking is like putting a band-aid on cancer. It’s only going to push the toxic beliefs further down to serve as a breeding ground to compound disease.

We can’t heal what we don’t acknowledge; therefore, an authentic approach would be to examine the ‘dark closet’ of your subconscious mind—to shine a light on what is there and bring it forward without judgment or self-condemnation. Honoring all buried feelings is key to wellness and emotional freedom.

This process can be skillfully done with the assistance of a professional certified in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), among other approaches. The beauty of EFT is that you can learn to do it for yourself as a way to manage challenging emotions on a regular basis.

Studies show that positive thinking releases life-enhancing chemicals throughout your body. Whereas, negative thoughts produce the circulation of stress hormones which compromise your immune system—the body’s first line of defense against disease. So, given that you are managing your dark emotions, positive thoughts can beneficially impact your health.

Finally, who are we to define positive outcome. It may be that a positive attitude ushers in a very peaceful death for some whose time has come to leave the earth. Whereas, others may need to exercise their courage muscle by fighting disease.

In conclusion, it’s simply not a black or white issue. But it does stimulate contemplation. Think about it!
