We all know that our mind controls every tiny thing and reactions of our body. The main factor is that it stimulates our emotions. If a person won't get satisfied with the treatment mentally, the treatment could not able to heal it physically. When a person hears of his 100% chance of recovery he gets happy by this, by which he gathers all positivity and does not mark a single doubt in his brain about this. Hence, he got mentally and physically prepared for the treatment. It does not mean that the doctor has to guarantee fake things, the main highlighting is that the person got mental peace which makes him fully prepared for further treatment.
According to a survey, more than half the patients suffering from cancer suffer from severe depression, mood swings, anxiety because they have a fear of death. Each and hour for them looks like a death hour to them until and unless someone consoles them, tried to take them out of this situation. This is the reason they cannot take the treatment physically because their minds are not set for it. If it is tried to give a little bit of mental peace to the patients, may a hope could be conducted for the recovery.
