Guided Imagery and Breast Cancer


Researchers at Oregon Health and Science University study the effect of guided imagery on immune function in patients being treated for Stage I or II breast cancer.


Researchers at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon, studied the effect of hypnotic guided imagery on immune function and psychological parameters in patients being treated for Stage I or II breast cancer. Psychological profiles, natural killer (NK) cell number and activity were measured at baseline, after the 8-week imagery training program, and again at the 3-month follow-up.

There were significant increases in improvement in depression (P<.04) and an increase in absolute number of NK cells, but these were not maintained at the 3-month follow-up. Hypnotic-guided imagery did cause some transient changes in psychological well-being and immune parameters. However, these changes were not retained after the treatment ended.

The study concludes that there is a role for this method as an adjuvant therapy. [Ed note: perhaps the imagery practice needs to be continued as an ongoing part of daily life in order to maintain its benefits on psychological well being and NK activity.]

Irritable Bowel Syndrome and mental health

One common problem that I find in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) patients is that something major has happened in their lives that have been rather unbalancing. For instance, the adult daughter of a 73 year old retired female civil servant suddenly becomes bipolar and needs substantial care even to the point of wearing diapers. Shortly thereafter the mother, who becomes her primary caregiver develops IBS. Note that these destabilizing events are also present in the case histories for fibro sufferers. So, it is no surprise that many patients are diagnosed both with fibro and IBS. There is...

Don’t Let Worry Control your Life

Why worry about the things that we can’t control? But we do. Our superior brain allows us to anticipate. This is often to our advantage as it allows us to plan ahead and adapt to what we think may happen. However, when our imagination is out of control, this same tool will cause us misery. At that point it often needlessly activates our fight-flight mechanism. This in turn makes us unhappy and can eventually damage our immune system.

Unlike others, people who excessively worry have learned this behavior over time. It could even have been caused by a family member or friend who...

Enjoy dogs with out fear

I could hardly think of what life would be like without the company of man’s best friend. The bond that comes from the deep understanding between a person and their dog (or dogs) is a unique relationship. Yet, to many people even the thought of being around one makes them very uncomfortable and may even evoke feelings of horror.

A fear of dogs may have been installed during your youth. It could have started due to a warning from a loved one or may even be due to an incident where you were attacked or felt threatened. Like any fear or phobia, this fear is a learned behavior that...
