Randomized Trial of a Hypnosis Intervention for Treatment of Hot Flashes Among Breast Cancer Surv.


PURPOSE: Hot flashes are a significant problem for many breast cancer survivors. Hot flashes can cause discomfort, disrupted sleep, anxiety, and decreased quality of life. A well-tolerated and effective mind-body treatment for hot flashes would be of great value. On the basis of previous case studies, this study was developed to evaluate the effect of a hypnosis intervention for hot flashes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty female breast cancer survivors with hot flashes were randomly assigned to receive hypnosis intervention (five weekly sessions) or no treatment. Eligible patients had to have a history of primary breast cancer without evidence of detectable disease and 14 or more weekly hot flashes for at least 1 month. The major outcome measure was a bivariate construct that represented hot flash frequency and hot flash score, which was analyzed by a classic sums and differences comparison. Secondary outcome measures were self-reports of interference of hot flashes on daily activities. RESULTS: Fifty-one randomly assigned women completed the study. By the end of the treatment period, hot flash scores (frequency x average severity) decreased 68% from baseline to end point in the hypnosis arm (P < .001). Significant improvements in self-reported anxiety, depression, interference of hot flashes on daily activities, and sleep were observed for patients who received the hypnosis intervention (P < .005) in comparison to the no treatment control group. CONCLUSION: Hypnosis appears to reduce perceived hot flashes in breast cancer survivors and may have additional benefits such as reduced anxiety and depression, and improved sleep.

Is Coffee and Caffeine Ruining your Life?

What’s wrong with having a mug of coffee occasionally? No, there is nothing wrong with the enjoying a tasty, warm cup of Joe or a delicious soft drink.

Caffeine is a stimulant that is followed by an almost immediate feeling of relaxation. For some, this becomes an endless cycle that requires constantly refilling your coffee cup or making yet another trip to the vending machine to get your Diet Coke fix. This...

Lose weight today

A primary challenge with helping someone lose weight through hypnosis is the fact that eating is required for survival. Also, once a certain body image is established, this becomes a pattern that is very hard to contradict. So unlike something like smoking cessation where the use of tobacco products, which are basically poisonous to human, when working with the typical weight-loss client the goal is not cessation of regulation.
