Correlates of use of different types of CAM by breast cancer survivors


Among breast cancer survivors, we identified the prevalence and correlates of use of different types of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 2,022 women diagnosed with breast cancer 1998-2003 who responded to a survey about CAM use. We performed logistic regression to determine demographic and disease factors associated with use of different CAM therapies (including relaxation/imagery, spiritual healing, yoga, energy healing, acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, high-dose vitamins, herbs, and homeopathy). We also measured quality of life (QoL) using the SF36 and optimism using LOT-R and fit linear regression models to compare mean scores among CAM users and nonusers. RESULTS: Sixty-two percent of respondents used CAM. Younger age was the most consistent correlate of CAM use, but factors associated with CAM use varied by type of CAM. Chemotherapy was associated with use of relaxation/imagery (OR 1.3 95%CI 1.1-1.7). Radiotherapy was associated with use of high-dose vitamins (OR 1.5 95% CI 1.2-2.0). Tamoxifen or anastrozole treatment was associated with use of homeopathy (OR 0.5 95%CI 0.3-0.9). Users of most types of CAM had worse QoL scores than nonusers, but better QoL was found among users of yoga. The lowest QoL scores were associated with the use of energy healing. Optimism was higher among users of relaxation/imagery. CONCLUSIONS: Factors associated with CAM use varied according to type of CAM. Our finding of worse QoL among women using energy healing and better QoL among women using yoga suggests the need for longitudinal studies to determine the temporal relationships between these therapies and QoL.

Bodybuilding and your mind

When considering the role of the mind and bodybuilding, two things quickly come up. First, a dedicated bodybuilder almost always already knows what is required to accomplish the desired state.

A bodybuilder knows that the by providing themselves with the right nutrition and rest while participating in the correct weight lifting regimen that they will most likely achieve the results for which...

Improving reading comprehensione with hypnosis

In order to understand how hypnosis can be used to help improve reading comprehension, before should know how reading comprehension occurs. The brain naturally converts perception into meaning. This process includes addressing the central questions of how and why. This process rapidly relates new perceptions to previously established patterns in the brain. As the brain is a rapid learning device, improving reading comprehension normally is just a matter of reducing the obstacles that have been programmed during our education. In order for this process to occur there are very specific parts...

Phobias of the mind

A phobia is a special type of fear. This anxiety disorder represents a persistent fear of an object or situation. As such it is a learned mental health disorder that also may be addressed effectively with hypnotherapy. Like other anxiety disorders, when a phobia is installed in the brain it is due to it an initial sensitizing event, which the person's brain failed to appropriately accommodate. Although a phobia can develop at any time during a person's life, the worst ones are those that occur when a child's brain is still immature. In those situations, a child's hippocampus is seemingly...
