Hypnosis decreases presurgical distress in excisional breast biopsy patients.


Excisional breast biopsy is associated with presurgical psychological distress. Such distress is emotionally taxing, and may have negative implications for postsurgical side effects and satisfaction with anesthesia. We investigated the ability of a brief hypnosis session to reduce presurgical psychological distress in excisional breast biopsy patients. METHODS: Ninety patients presenting for excisional breast biopsy were randomly assigned to receive either a 15-minute presurgery hypnosis session (n = 49, mean age: 46.4 (95% CI: 42.3-50.4)) or a 15-minute presurgery attention control session (n = 41, mean age: 45.0 (95% CI: 40.8-49.2)). The hypnosis session involved suggestions for increased relaxation and decreased distress. The attention control session involved nondirective empathic listening. Presurgery distress was measured using visual analog scales (VAS) and the short version of the Profile of Mood States (SV-POMS). Data were analyzed using analysis of variance and chi2 procedures. RESULTS: Groups did not differ in terms of the following: demographics (age, education, ethnicity, marital status, all P's > 0.28); medical variables (presurgery diagnosis, previous excisional biopsy, previous breast cancer, all P's > 0.11); or preintervention distress (SV-POMS P > 0.74) assessed on the day of surgery. Postintervention, and before surgery, patients in the hypnosis group had significantly lower mean values for presurgery VAS emotional upset (16.5 vs 38.2, P < 0.0001, d = .85), VAS depressed mood (6.6 vs 19.9, P < 0.02, d = .67), and SV-POMS anxiety (10.0 vs 5.0, P < 0.0001, d = 0.85); and significantly higher levels for VAS relaxation (75.7 vs 54.2, P < 0.001, d = -0.76) than attention controls. CONCLUSIONS: The study results indicate that a brief presurgery hypnosis intervention can be an effective means of controlling presurgical distress in women awaiting diagnostic breast cancer surgery.

Getting Away from a Chewing Tobacco Habit

During my military career and while living in the southeast United States frequently I have come upon people who are addicted to dipping snuff or having a piece of chewing tobacco in their mouths. It seems to have become a habit that is encouraged in certain cultures. While there are some that are proud of their habit and feel that the little circle that a tobacco can makes in the back pocket of their jeans is a status symbol, still most people find the habit rather disgusting. Even many addicted users admit this as well.

Unlike smokers, those that chew or sniff tobacco products...

Finding Meaning in Your Life

What does a fulfilled life mean? Certainly it is much more than just paying bills, having kids, and comfortably retiring. There simply must be much more to living than that. Over the years I’ve worked with countless people who feel that something is missing. Yet, they don’t know what.

Back in the 1943, the American psychologist Abraham Maslow gave us a theory that endures until today. He specified that people have a “hierarchy of needs,” which stipulates that needs must be satisfied in this order: physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem, and then self-actualization. Once...

Drug addiction and hypnosis

Depending on which narcotic is involved, a person can quickly become addicted to a drug. Some such as marijuana and prescription pain killers may take longer to create a bonifide addiction. However, others such as meth amphetamines and cocaine can easily create an addiction from the very first use. There are two factors involved in a drug addiction. The first comes from the strength of the addictive drug as mentioned previously. The second comes from the repetitive use of the drug. The more that the behavior is repeated; the quicker it becomes a habit. Of course, that is true for just...
