Hypnosis for procedure-related pain and distress in pediatric cancer patients
The aim of this study was to systematically review and critically appraise the evidence on the effectiveness of hypnosis for procedure-related pain and distress in pediatric cancer patients. A comprehensive search of major biomedical and specialist complementary and alternative medicine databases was conducted. Citations were included from the databases' inception to March 2005. Efforts were made to identify unpublished and ongoing research. Controlled trials were appraised using predefined criteria. Clinical commentaries were obtained for each study. Seven randomized controlled clinical trials and one controlled clinical trial were found. Studies report positive results, including statistically significant reductions in pain and anxiety/distress, but a number of methodological limitations were identified. Systematic searching and appraisal has demonstrated that hypnosis has potential as a clinically valuable intervention for procedure-related pain and distress in pediatric cancer patients. Further research into the effectiveness and acceptability of hypnosis for pediatric cancer patients is recommended.

The immediate availability of – legal and illegal – pornographic images has made parental supervision nearly impossible and has ruined many relationships.
Like any addictive behavior, Internet porn addiction has both physiological and mental sides. The arousal that ensues creates a reaction in the brain and body. Like any drug, when the physical manifestation is linked to psychological aspect, this on-line viewing...
Empathy is a natural trait in all human beings. However, if it is not developed through the proper social interaction, it will be not become fully developed. All humans have mirror neurons in their brain. They begin having an impact on our brain (to include personality development) from early infancy. These special brain cells play a critical role in our ability to properly socialize to include acquire languages, self and group identification, and other social skills.
Look at the brain as a multitude of competing parts. They are activated and strengthened through use. When an infant or...
