Can hypnosis reduce hot flashes in breast cancer survivors?


Hot flashes are a significant problem for many breast cancer survivors and can cause discomfort, insomnia, anxiety, and decreased quality of life. In the past, the standard treatment for hot flashes has been hormone replacement therapy. However, recent research has found an increased risk of breast cancer in women receiving hormone replacement therapy.


As a result, many menopausal women and breast cancer survivors reject hormone replacement therapy and many women want non-pharmacological treatment.In this critical review we assess the potential use of hypnosis in reducing the frequency and intensity of hot flashes. We conclude that hypnosis is a mind-body intervention that may be of significant benefit in treatment of hot flashes and other benefits may include reduced anxiety and improved sleep. Further, hypnosis may be a preferred treatment because of the few side-effects and the preference of many women for a non-hormonal therapy. Two case studies are included to illustrate hypnosis for hot flashes. However this intervention has not been adequately studied. We discuss an NIH-funded randomized clinical trial of hypnosis for hot flashes in breast cancer survivors that is presently being conducted.

The ego in hypnosis

Who am I? Ever since Sigmund Freud the concept of the ego has been an intense topic of conversation. We attempt to understand who we are in terms of not only our physical description, but also our values, beliefs, and behaviors. When all of this is considered, we just may have a reasonable concept of our “I-ness.” This can also be referred to as our ego. In the Freud-influenced Western world a healthy mind is often synonymous with a healthy ego. This means that a stable ego is presumed to be a core requirement for the maintenance of adequate mental health. However, as normal ins-and-outs...

Hypnosis and chemotherapy

When a person is diagnosed with cancer and should they decide to pursue traditional allopathic treatment, most certainly they will be faced with having to endure the ravages chemotherapy. As chemotherapy is intended to attack the cancerous cells, it is very logical that these chemicals will cause numerous problems for the healthy parts of the body. The result is nausea, hair loss, and a series of mental issues such as depression, anxiety, and a general feeling of helplessness. Most cancer patients to go this route passively accept the ravages of chemotherapy. It is very rare that someone...

Are you an Alcoholic?

In our culture alcohol consumption has often been synonymous with being socially accepted. Somehow we have linked the ingestion of these liquids, which everyone knows contains toxic substances, to our desire to be socially connected. It has always been the baby boomers version of Facebook and Twitter. In fact, decades ago while serving as a young Army officer, it would have been considered an insult not to share a few “cold ones” with the men as a form of celebration. I’m not saying the Generation X and Y’ers are immune to becoming alcoholics. It seems to be a problem that transcends...
