Full title: Cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway of some non-pharmacological therapies of complementary medicine: possible implications for treatment of rheumatic and autoimmune diseases.

Rheumatologic and autoimmune diseases are among foremost diseases for which patients seek complementary and integrative medicine options. Therefore, physicians should be informed on the advances in research of these therapies, in order to be able to discuss possible indications and contraindications for these treatment modalities with their patients. This review summarizes several therapeutic modalities of complementary medicine that may be involved in the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway. The analysis of systematic reviews of acupuncture for rheumatic conditions has concluded that the evidence is sufficiently sound to warrant positive recommendations of this therapy for osteoarthritis, low back pain and lateral elbow pain. There is relatively strong evidence to support the use of hypnosis in pain treatment, such as in cases of fibromyalgia. A recent controlled study that evaLuated tai-chi in fibromyalgia has reported reductions in pain, improvements in mood, quality of Life, self efficacy and exercise capacity. There is also cumulative evidence that acupuncture, hypnosis and tai-chi may decrease the high frequency of heart rate variability, suggesting enhancement of vagus nerve activity. Hence, it has been hypothesized that these modalities might impact the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway to modulate inflammation. Further clinical and basic research to confirm this hypothesis should be performed in order to validate integration of these therapies in comprehensive treatment for some inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

Affecting insomnia without the use of pills

When trying to understand insomnia, you should consider sleep is from a neurological point of view. In general, a sleep state represents a significant neurological reorganization. This means that many areas of the brain are substantially inactivated and others activated. For instance, the Reticular Activating System, which is located in the brain stem and has a lot to do with conscious awareness. (Also, the brain stem controls breathing, which is why meditators, who consciously modify their breathing, can substantially change their mental states.) When modulating (i.e. inactivating the...

Mental health disorders

In general, there are three types of mental health disorders with which I am concerned. The first category, and probably most common, involves disorders related to fears, anxieties, trauma, and phobias. These almost always related to learned patterns. Something happened in their mind and body fell to adapt appropriately. The second category is personality disorders. Again, this involves a person's ability to adapt and adjust to the unknown. A personality is normally considered one's beliefs, values, and behaviors. Together these are reflected as patterns. Once something happens that is...

Freedom from Mental Anxieties

What happens when someone is experiencing an anxiety? Normally, we associate such an occurrence with distinct reactions in the body. Some people feel like their anxiety must be a heart attack. They find that their pulse increases. They feel a tightness in their chest. Their hands and feet may suddenly go numb. Yes, it may just feel like a heart attack is occurring. Even though it is not, still they are experiencing a miserable situation. Anxieties normally happen as the result of a previous traumatic event. Often this event occurred during their childhood years. At that point the ability...
