Mind-Body CAM Interventions: Current Status and Considerations for Integration...


Full title: Mind-Body CAM Interventions: Current Status and Considerations for Integration Into Clinical Health Psychology.

OBJECTIVE: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is increasingly used for treating myriad health conditions and for maintaining general health. The present article provides an overview of current CAM use with a specific focus on mind-body CAM and its efficacy in treating health conditions.

METHOD: Characteristics of CAM users are presented, and then evidence regarding the efficacy of mind-body treatments (biofeedback, meditation, guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing, hypnosis, yoga, tai chi, and qi gong) is reviewed.

RESULTS: Demographics associated with CAM use are fairly well-established, but less is known about their psychological characteristics. Although the efficacy of mind-body CAM modalities for health conditions is receiving a great deal of research attention, studies have thus far produced a weak base of evidence.

Methodological limitations of current research are reviewed. Suggestions are made for future research that will provide more conclusive knowledge regarding efficacy and, ultimately, effectiveness of mind-body CAM. Considerations for clinical applications, including training and competence, ethics, treatment tailoring, prevention efforts, and diversity, conclude the article.

CONCLUSIONS: Integration of CAM modalities into clinical health psychology can be useful for researchers taking a broader perspective on stress and coping processes, illness behaviors, and culture; for practitioners seeking to incorporate CAM perspectives into their work; and for policy makers in directing healthcare resources wisely.

Being a Bodybuilder is a Way of Thinking

No great achievement in life is ever realized without first creating a firm vision of the desired results in your mind. Whether you are considering building the next great pyramid, creating the next billion-dollar Internet business, or growing and shaping your muscles for your next bodybuilding competition, without focusing on your results, it most likely will never be achieved. Why is this true? Realize that everything around and in us is made of patterns of matter and its energy. When one link or component changes, it inspires the others connected to it to adapt. I normally call this an...

Treatment for stress

Without stress we would have very little motivation. We are constantly assessing the balance between our capabilities and perceived difficulties of the challenges that we face every day. When we are inspired, we are motivated to show that our capabilities clearly outweigh the obstacles in front of us. However, even if we are successful, prolonged periods of stress can have its toll. This is why we need to achieve as much balance in life as possible. On the other hand, there are times that the things that stress us may seem to exceed our capabilities to handle them. Likewise, this adds to the...

About Depression

For each and every one of us there are times when we feel, sad, lonely, and wish that our situation was better. This is a natural, normal feeling that we all go through. In fact, it may be just a matter of our biorhythms fluctuating every 90 minutes or so or just helping us balance our life after a period of exhilaration. On the other hand, if these feelings are persistent and so severe as to prevent you from participating in normal relationships and regular activities, just possibly you may have chronic depression and need assistance. Here’s what you should be looking for if you think...
