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.

How can hypnosis used to affect community health? Community health is a public health concept that involves the betterment of health in a variety of communities. As health, which the same thing as well-being, can be influenced by cultural phenomena, it should be rather obvious that it is related to prevailing attitudes and values. These are patterns. As every hypnotist knows, patterns may be healthy or unhealthy.
Individuals and families have very specific attitudes when it comes to diet, social interaction, exercise, sanitation, immunization, in sexual activity. If someone were to study...
What is happiness? Some would define it in terms of being contented with what you have or are experiencing at the moment. Others would explain it in terms of what they own, where they live, and how much money they make. As a therapist, people frequently tell me that they determine their happiness by how others treat or regard them. Unfortunately, in that case they have completely surrendered their happiness to the whims of others. That is not a condition that I recommend.
However, I am now going to recommend that you consider another approach to happiness. Consider your dominant thoughts....
Very early in my study of hypnotherapy I was required to focus on many issues of women's health as relates to my field. I became interested in the number of reproductive-related issues that can be affected by a woman's mental state. There are a high number of researchers who had looked into how stress affects various issues regarding a woman's health. As way too many in the medical field considered hypnosis primarily as a stress reduction tool, they were more than willing to look at the relationship between hypnosis and woman's health. Over the years there has been more interest in looking at...
