Use of complementary and alternative therapy by women...

Full Title: Use of complementary and alternative therapy by women in the first 2 years after diagnosis and treatment of invasive breast cancer

OBJECTIVE:: Our aim was to document patterns of consultation with alternative practitioners, use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) commonly used to alleviate menopausal symptoms, and lifestyle changes made by women in the first 2 years after their diagnosis with invasive breast cancer. METHODS:: A total of 1,588 women in the MBF Foundation Health and Wellbeing After Breast Cancer Study completed both the enrollment questionnaire and the first follow-up questionnaire (FQ1), on average, 41 and 92 weeks after diagnosis, respectively. The Menopause Quality of Life Questionnaire and the Psychological General Wellbeing Index were included in the FQ1. Logistic regression analysis was used to examine characteristics associated with consulting a CAM practitioner or using CAMs. RESULTS:: At the time of completion of the FQ1, 16.4% of women had consulted a CAM practitioner and 10.6% reported using at least one CAM commonly used to alleviate menopausal symptoms. Women who consulted a CAM practitioner and women who were using at least one CAM at the time of completion of the FQ1 were, on average, younger and more educated and had a higher Menopause Quality of Life Questionnaire score than did women who did not. Of the women, 33.6% reported having made a dietary change, and the most common lifestyle change was an increase in physical activity, which was reported by 29.0% of women. CONCLUSIONS:: The frequency of use of CAMs in common usage for menopausal symptoms by women with breast cancer was lower than anticipated, increased with time from diagnosis, and is associated with more severe menopausal symptoms.

The Internet Porn Trap

Of spoofing, spam, and Internet porn, it is probably the last creation of the Information Super Highway that has had the most adverse effect on the lives of many people. 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...

Drinking, alcohol, and hypnosis

Drinking alcohol in excess can quickly become a strong addiction. While alcohol drinking may have started out as a way of socializing, once it becomes a regular activity a person’s body and brain begin to expect a certain level of consumption. A that point this behavior begins training the body and brain to expect the stimulus. The resulting addiction becomes a medical and mental health problem that affects just about every facet of life. Other than realizing the physiological problems, when addressing an addiction related to the excessive drinking of alcohol, it is important to remember...

Are you an Alcoholic?

In our culture alcohol consumption has often been synonymous with being socially accepted. Somehow we have linked the ingestion of these liquids, which everyone knows contains toxic substances, to our desire to be socially connected. It has always been the baby boomers version of Facebook and Twitter. In fact, decades ago while serving as a young Army officer, it would have been considered an insult not to share a few “cold ones” with the men as a form of celebration. I’m not saying the Generation X and Y’ers are immune to becoming alcoholics. It seems to be a problem that transcends...
