Hypnosis in Breast Cancer Care: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials.


Introduction. Many breast cancer patients and survivors experience pain and emotional stress related to their disease, its diagnostic procedures, or treatment. Hypnosis has long been used for the treatment of such symptoms. The aim of this review was to systematically assess the effectiveness of hypnosis in women with breast cancer, breast cancer survivors, and in women undergoing diagnostic breast biopsy. Methods. PubMed, Scopus, the Cochrane Library, PsycINFO, and CAMBASE were screened through February 2014 for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of hypnosis in women with breast cancer or undergoing diagnostic breast biopsy. RCTs on postmenopausal women without a history of breast cancer were also eligible. Primary outcomes were pain, distress, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, and hot flashes. Safety was defined as secondary outcome measure. Risk of bias was assessed by 2 reviewers independently using the Cochrane Risk of Bias Tool. Results. Thirteen RCTs with 1357 patients were included. In women undergoing diagnostic breast biopsy (3 RCTs), hypnosis positively influenced pain and distress; 1 RCT on breast cancer surgery found effects of hypnosis on pain, distress, fatigue, and nausea. For women undergoing radiotherapy (3 RCTs), hypnosis combined with cognitive-behavioral therapy improved distress and fatigue. In 3 RCTs on women with and without a history of breast cancer experiencing hot flashes, hypnosis improved hot flashes and distress. Three RCTs on women with metastatic breast cancer found effects on pain and distress. Conclusions. This systematic review found sparse but promising evidence for the effectiveness of hypnosis in breast cancer care. While more research is needed to underpin these results, hypnosis can be considered as an ancillary intervention in the management of breast cancer-related symptoms.

What is anxiety?

After looking at many definitions of anxiety, which are offered by a variety of medical and psychological authorities, I can't help but think that something's missing. Typically anxiety is to find as a feeling of apprehension, fear, or worry. But to fully understand what it is and how it may be affected by hypnosis a much bigger picture must be looked at first. The fully developed adult brain has the ability to anticipate and simulate. As perceptions or imagination or match with predictive patterns it is natural to assume that something either extremely positive or extremely negative may...

Smoking cigarettes and hypnosis

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...

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a very general term which refers to any interaction between one person, a couple, or a group and another who presumably has specific training and skills dealing with the healing of various situations involving the human mind. It is a contraction between the word psyche, which is the Greek word for spirit or soul, and the word therapy, which refers to corrective treatment for a illness, disease, or pathology. It logically overlaps the concept and/or field of psychology, which is defined as the science of the mind. As a field of practice the term psychotherapy is so vague...
