Correlates of use of different types of CAM by breast cancer survivors
Among breast cancer survivors, we identified the prevalence and correlates of use of different types of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 2,022 women diagnosed with breast cancer 1998-2003 who responded to a survey about CAM use. We performed logistic regression to determine demographic and disease factors associated with use of different CAM therapies (including relaxation/imagery, spiritual healing, yoga, energy healing, acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, high-dose vitamins, herbs, and homeopathy). We also measured quality of life (QoL) using the SF36 and optimism using LOT-R and fit linear regression models to compare mean scores among CAM users and nonusers. RESULTS: Sixty-two percent of respondents used CAM. Younger age was the most consistent correlate of CAM use, but factors associated with CAM use varied by type of CAM. Chemotherapy was associated with use of relaxation/imagery (OR 1.3 95%CI 1.1-1.7). Radiotherapy was associated with use of high-dose vitamins (OR 1.5 95% CI 1.2-2.0). Tamoxifen or anastrozole treatment was associated with use of homeopathy (OR 0.5 95%CI 0.3-0.9). Users of most types of CAM had worse QoL scores than nonusers, but better QoL was found among users of yoga. The lowest QoL scores were associated with the use of energy healing. Optimism was higher among users of relaxation/imagery. CONCLUSIONS: Factors associated with CAM use varied according to type of CAM. Our finding of worse QoL among women using energy healing and better QoL among women using yoga suggests the need for longitudinal studies to determine the temporal relationships between these therapies and QoL.

What is your level of confidence and why should you care? To a statistician, confidence levels would mean how reliably could a certain condition occur or be predicted and expressed as a percentage. For instance, when putting if a golfer can reliably get his ball into the cup nine times out of 10, a statistician would say that he has a 90% reliability. This can also be expressed as 0.9. However, a psychologist would look at this slightly differently. What she may be looking at is the effect that a level of confidence would have on a person's self-esteem. A person's self-awareness or ego can...
Insomnia, which is the chronic inability to sleep, can be affected by the use of hypnosis. Normally, the inability to sleep is a result of the failure of the brain to switch functions from those needed during the awake state to those needed for a restful sleep. Through the use of hypnosis a person can shut off the parts of the brain that are not needed for sleep.
In order to understand this, it is helpful to look at the brain as an organ with many parts. At any given time these individual parts are either active, inactive, or idle. For any mental function a combination of these parts,...
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.
