Pediatric oncologists' views toward the use of complementary and alternative medicine for children.
Original Title: Pediatric oncologists' views toward the use of complementary and alternative medicine in children with cancer.
Pediatric oncology patients commonly use complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), yet approximately only 50% of these patients discuss CAM with their oncologist. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to assess barriers to CAM communication in pediatric oncology. DESIGN/METHODS: A 33-question survey was sent via electronic mail to 358 pediatric oncologists in the United States. RESULTS: Ninety pediatric oncologists completed the survey. Ninety-nine percent of pediatric oncologists think it is important to know what CAM therapies their patients use. However, less than half of pediatric oncologists routinely ask their patients about CAM. This is primarily because of a lack of time and knowledge. Many physicians think some forms of CAM may improve quality of life, such as massage (74%) and yoga (57%). Over half of physicians thought that dietary supplements, herbal medicine, special diets, vitamins, and chiropractic might be harmful to patients. CONCLUSIONS: Pediatric oncologists believe it is important to know which CAM therapies their patients use; however, they are not asking about them owing to lack of time and knowledge. To improve communication about CAM, increased physician education is needed. In addition, physicians should identify patients using potentially harmful CAM therapies. Furthermore, CAM research in pediatric oncology should focus on those modalities physicians believe may improve patient quality of life.

When you perceive that the difficulty of a situation exceeds your capabilities, then your body goes through a reaction called stress. While in some cases stress may excite and even motivate you to do your best, it can also become a negative factor and challenge your ability to be healthy, happy, and successful in life.
In the definition that I just gave you I started off by using the word “perceive.” This means that what is causing your stress – and how you react to it – may not be the result of a reality. In fact, how your brain perceives things is often a result of how your mind was...
If you occasionally have problems such as shortness of breath, wheezing, a frequent cough, or chest tightness, chances are you are suffering from asthma. And, there's over a 50% chance that your asthma is being caused by an allergy. Asthma can involve a tightening of the airwaves, a swelling of the lining of the airways, and increased mucus production in your lungs. In turn, a predominant cause is your body's reaction to an allergen. As such, one must consider the role of the immune system with each to branches: adaptive and innate. Essentially, your mind and body have learned to react to...
Recently the topics of bullying in bullies have received considerable attention in the press. This is surprising as this phenomenon has been with us since the dawn of mankind and will continue to be with us until civilization evolves sufficiently. Despite its popularity as a topic for discussion, I am frustrated as the speakers and writers rarely adequately define it. However, for the adverse effects of bullying to be adequately treated, it is imperative that it be looked at in its basic form.
Bullying is a form of instinctual dominance play. It can be seen in any form of pack...
