Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression

Prevalence of complementary medicine use in a phase 1 clinical trials program.

Full title: Prevalence of complementary medicine use in a phase 1 clinical trials program: The MD Anderson Cancer Center Experience.

BACKGROUND: A key end point of early cancer clinical trials is the assessment of toxicities and their possible association with new experimental drugs. Therefore, the concurrent use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in patients with advanced malignancies seen in a dedicated phase 1 clinic was evaluated. METHODS: An investigator-designed survey was anonymously completed by patients seen in the phase 1 clinic. Pharmacologic CAM included any oral, topical, or intravenous agent, including vitamins, dietary supplements, and herbal products. Nonpharmacologic CAM included prayer, meditation, hypnosis, massage, and acupuncture. RESULTS: Of the 404 patients approached about completing the CAM survey, 394 (98%) agreed to respond, and 309 (78%) surveys were returned. Of those 309 patients, 162 (52%) used 1 or more CAM. Of the 162 CAM users, 77% utilized pharmacologic CAM, 71% used nonpharmacologic CAM, and 48% used both modalities. The most frequent CAM used were vitamins (70%), prayer (57%), and herbal products (26%). CAM utilization was not significantly associated with race, age, level of education, employment, or income level but was used more by women than men (P < .01). There was no statistically significant association between the use of CAM and quality of life as perceived by patients. Of the CAM users, 43% of patients had been using CAM for >5 years. Only 5% reported having side effects from using CAM, whereas 23% did not fully disclose their CAM use to their physicians. CONCLUSIONS: CAM usage is common in patients with advanced malignancies seen in a phase 1 clinic. Cancer 2011. © 2011 American Cancer Society.

Let your Anxieties Fade Away

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?

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...

Don’t Let Your Fear of Death Control Your Life

I vividly remember the time that I learned of my mortality. I was probably around four or five years old when I suddenly realized that I was not going to live forever. As I matured and grew older – and having survived a near fatal automobile accident – I decided that I wanted to focus on living rather than constantly working about my demise. Obviously, all of us are aware that life is going to end sometime. However, by choosing to live everyday to its fullest your life can become rich and rewarding.

If death is constantly on your mind, it is time to let these thoughts go....

Hypnosis and community health

How can hypnosis used to affect community health? Community health is a public health concept that involves the betterment of health in a variety of communities. As health, which the same thing as well-being, can be influenced by cultural phenomena, it should be rather obvious that it is related to prevailing attitudes and values. These are patterns. As every hypnotist knows, patterns may be healthy or unhealthy. Individuals and families have very specific attitudes when it comes to diet, social interaction, exercise, sanitation, immunization, in sexual activity. If someone were to study...
