Will Health Journeys' Chemotherapy guided imagery work as well for people being treated with immunotherapy?

Dear Belleruth,

Thank you for your guided imagery for people undergoing chemotherapy. I know that the newer immunotherapies work differently than chemotherapy. Will the same Chemotherapy guided imagery program still be good for someone getting the immunotherapies?

Thank you,
Hillary


Dear Hillary,

The answer is yes. Both immunotherapy and conventional chemotherapy operate on the overarching idea of supporting the body's natural ability and mechanisms to fight disease, and that's what the content of the Chemotherapy imagery is talking about. Another suggestion for imagery to support either therapy is Healthy Immune System.

Thanks for asking a great question.  


Best wishes to you,
