Can I Trust The ‘Voice In My Head’?

Dear Dr. Siegel  – I have BC…and my oncologist says I need radiation.  I don’t know why, but…there’s a voice in my head telling me not to do it.  Should I listen to the voice?  Is it possible that some inner part of me knows something that the doctor doesn’t know?

– Sterling (SC)

BERNIE’S REFLECTIONS

Dear Sterling --  Yes this could be your intuitive wisdom or gut feeling or it could be… fear.  I would say draw yourself receiving radiation and look at it to evaluate what your intuition wants you to know.   Look at it the day after you draw it so your unconscious doesn't blind you to the content of the drawing and you will see it as if someone else drew it and so can truly evaluate it.  Literally some people draw God as the radiation machine with a purple beam coming out towards their cancer.  They don't have a problem.  What color is the radiation machine and beam of radiation and the whole scene?  It will tell you what you need to know about making the right decision.  Ask for a dream tonight to help you. Radiation isn't the problem -- your feelings are.   So do what feels right for you as long as you won't be angry at yourself in the future if there is a recurrence and you wish you had listened to the doctor.  When a radiation therapy machine, after being repaired and no radioactive material put back into it, was used for a month to treat people, they realized the problem patients had side effects and shrinking tumors because they believed they were being treated.  The radiation therapist didn't realize he wasn't really treating anyone.  And a patient of mine made her therapist check the machine because she had no side effects. The machine was fine, and her comment to explain her lack of side effects was: "I get out of the way and let it go to my tumor."

Peace – Bernie

From Cancer Patient to Respant

By:  Bernie Siegel, MD

Unfortunately doctors and health professionals, in general, do not study success. We are far more likely to consider an unexpected recovery to be due to the treatment or a spontaneous remission. However, I have learned from my experience with patients and by asking them, “Why didn’t you die when you were supposed to?” that they always had a story to tell.
