Complementary and alternative medicine in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia
BACKGROUND: Despite the widespread use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the general population for the treatment of chronic diseases, only few data have been published for patients with leukemia. The aim of this survey was to study systematically the use of CAM in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A structured questionnaire was sent to 247 CLL patients of all clinical stages and disease durations, treated and untreated. The questionnaire was returned anonymously by 87 patients (35%). RESULTS: Thirty-nine patients (44%) had used alternative treatments. No correlation was seen with educational level, gender, or previous or current chemotherapy. The most common alternative or complementary treatment modality was vitamin supplementation (26%), followed by mineral (18%), homeopathic (14%), and mistletoe therapy (9.2%). Some 21% of patients considered their alternative treatment as being successful. Most patients reported that they decided to use CAM after conducting a personal investigation and based on the information they found, without outside recommendations (59%). The majority of the patients used patient brochures about CLL as an important source of information (54%), followed by specific lectures (34%) or the internet (32%). CONCLUSION: Our data show that patients with CLL use a wide range of CAM, among them potentially harmful methods. Rational, evidence-based medical information about the effects and risks of CAM use should be made available through patient brochures distributed by patient organizations, through information events with lectures, or via the internet.

One of the most absurd human habits is that of the consumption of tobacco products. Of course, this includes the smoking cigarettes. As just about everything about cigarettes involves the ingestion of highly toxic materials, it makes absolutely no sense for anyone to smoke a cigarette. Yet three years people have been trained to smoke. This is not helped by the fact that the components of tobacco contain substances, such as nicotine, that are highly addictive.
Over the years I've worked with numerous people helping them to kick their cigarette smoking habit. Most of them start the habit...
Essentially, psychology is the study of the mind. More accurately the word means the body of knowledge about the mind. Current textbooks, however, describe it as the “science of the mind.” This is despite the fact that many practitioners of the field take a rather idealistic, unscientific approach.
The field of psychology can trace its roots back to Wilhelm Maximilian Wundt, a German whose life spanned the previous two centuries. Wundt is alternatively regarded as a physician, physiologist, philosopher, and as a professor. He established the first formal laboratory for psychological...
Any behavior that is repeated often enough becomes a habit. Once a habit become so engrained in your mind and body that normal processes are interfered with, the habit goes to the extreme of becoming an addiction. Unfortunately, in many ways these behaviors become part of your personality. In fact, they become part of your identity. Nevertheless, change is an option – if you have the know-how.
Your actions and thoughts become habits because your brain and body are set up to work with and in patterns. These patterns represent real pathways that connect your neurons in your brain and...
