What if hairloss is a belief

By Lynne Cory

What if as I was sitting at the foot of my good friend during her chemo treatment, the thought came to me: could hairloss during chemo be just a belief?

What if we were told by our doctors and nurses and pharmacists, who were trying to be helpful and informative, that we would surely lose our hair and so after chemo, we kept checking our head throughout the following weeks and each time we saw a strand fall out, which might be natural, we knew it was coming?

What if because we focused so much on our hair loss and got scared of it happeneing and tightened up our scalp in fear that we actually created this loss?

What if we relaxed and focused on something that brought us joy and happiness and appreciation of our life?
