When a person is diagnosed and treated for long term potentially fatal diseases such as cancer, they often accumulate distressing and traumatic experiences along the way. A new study from the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health at Thomas Jefferson University reveals how Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) substantially alters the brain’s response to traumatic memories, and reveals the potential importance of the cerebellum in regulating the brain and body’s response to traumatic stress.
The ONE Research Foundation is proud to announce the publication of “Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) Reduces Symptoms of Traumatic Stress in Cancer Survivors”. The study focuses on 23 cancer patients who had distressing cancer-related experiences that caused traumatic stress. Some received NET and others were waitlisted to a control. All patients received a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) while listening to the story of their distressing cancer memory before and after NET.
The scans after NET (as seen in the photo above) display a dramatic reduction in the brain’s response to trauma, validating the powerful effects of NET on the brain.
