Mind-Body Interventions in Oncology.
OPINION STATEMENT: A number of mind-body interventions have been studied for use with cancer patients, primarily measuring outcomes relating to pain control, anxiety reduction, and enhancing quality of life. This chapter defines the scope and characteristics of mind-body interventions, followed by a selective review of research indicating their appropriate use or cautions in cancer care. Mind-body interventions included are hypnosis, imagery/relaxation, meditation, yoga, and creative therapies. Current evidence supports the efficacy of hypnosis and imagery/relaxation for control of pain and anxiety during cancer treatments. Meditation is supported for reductions in stress and improvements in mood, quality of life, and sleep problems. There is a growing body of support for yoga from randomized controlled trials for improving quality of life, sleep, and mood. Creative therapies such as visual arts, dance, and music may help cancer patients express their feelings and cope with the demands of a cancer experience. Research on biological marker effects of mind-body therapies remains inconclusive. Study of mind-body interventions generally requires additional, methodologically rigorous investigation of how various interventions best assist patients during various phases of cancer survivorship, although a major benefit of these therapies lies in the opportunity for patients to self-select them.

A widely accepted definition of psychology is that it is "the science of the mind." It is used for a wide variety of research, business, and clinical or therapeutic purposes. The understanding of the human mind is a topic related to fields such as religion, advertising, education, counseling, and healthcare. This is true even though there are those practitioners who consider themselves to be licensed psychologists, who normally focus on counseling and health considerations.
When using this definition, it is important to understand the concept of science. Science simply is a three step...
Even though the word alcohol actually means a specific type of chemical compound, for the purpose of this article I'm referring to alcohol as a drink with intoxicating effects. And, as with any other ingested chemical that has intoxicating effects, with very little repetition its use can be significantly addicting. Furthermore, the physiological dependence that is created over time will result in dire withdrawal symptoms once the alcohol abuser attempts to completely quit.
Like many other addictions, the repeated use of alcohol was probably started in a social situation. A person may have...
Very simply, stress is a situation when the perceived difficulty of a situation exceeds a person’s perceived abilities. Many times this may be a positive and enjoyable situation. A business challenge, a video game, or an enjoyable game of chess or golf represents times when a person may seek and appreciate a stressful situation. However, in our society, that is not always the case.
There are two instinctual attributes that are hardwired into our brain that may result in constant and recurring stress that may be harmful to our mental and physical health. The first is our survival instinct...
