Demographic, medical, and psychosocial correlates to CAM use among survivors of colorectal cancer.
: Complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) use among cancer patients is becoming more prevalent; however, our understanding of factors contributing to patients' decisions to participate in CAM is limited. This study examined correlates of CAM use among colorectal cancer (CRC) survivors, an understudied population that experiences many physical and psychological difficulties. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The sample was 191, predominantly white, CRC survivors (mean age = 59.9 +/- 12.6) who were members of a colon disease registry at a NYC metropolitan hospital. Participants completed assessments of sociodemographic characteristics, psychosocial factors [e.g., psychological functioning, cancer specific distress, social support (SS), quality of life (QOL)], and past CAM use (e.g., chiropractic care, acupuncture, relaxation, hypnosis, and homeopathy). MAIN RESULTS: Seventy-five percent of participants reported using at least one type of CAM; most frequently reported was home remedies (37%). Younger (p < 0.01) or female patients (p < 0.01) were more likely to participate in CAM than their older male counterparts. Among psychosocial factors, poorer perceived SS (p = 0.00), more intrusive thoughts (p < 0.05), and poorer overall perceived QOL (p < 0.05) were associated to CAM use. In a linear regression model (including age, gender, SS, intrusive thoughts, and perceived QOL), only age remained a significant predictor of CAM use. CONCLUSION: These findings demonstrate that CAM use is prevalent among CRC survivors and should be assessed routinely by providers. CAMs may serve as a relevant adjunct to treatment among CRC patients as well as an indication of need for additional SS, especially among younger patients.

Excessive worry and anxieties are so common in Western society that I sincerely doubt that there are many people who are not adversely affected by them. Do you constantly feel stressed? Do you have problems sleeping? Is your mind always hyperactive and jumping from worry to worry? Yes, you problem are handling your stress and anxieties very well.
Remember that your reactions are most likely part of what psychologists call learned behavior. This means that at some time you reacted – or over-reacted – to a situation. When you perceived it happening again, this recognition...
Grieving is a natural process, which I never thought I would experience personally. Of course, I know that that was never true. Whether it involves the loss of a precious pet, a friend, a very dear loved one, or a close family member, if it hasn’t happened to you yet, it will eventually.
Over the years I have experienced different forms of loss. One day I took one of our dogs to the vet to have a lump on his chest removed. Within hours I received a rather frantic call from my wife. Between her sobs she told me that our vet had just called. Samson’s growth was actually the tip of a massive...
Numerous times that I've heard that public speaking is one of the biggest sources of fear in the Western world. So, in many ways public speaking can be treated right any other fear and anxiety. Nevertheless, unless this fear is merely a part of a larger and more prominent phobia or trauma reaction, it is a rather simple matter to address with hypnosis.
Like with any other fear this one can be addressed to some degree as an unjustifiable defensive reaction to eight misperceived threat. However, one must also consider the role that a person's natural empathetic talent plays.
