Preparing Patients for Cancer Chemotherapy


Burish, Snyder and Jenkins, the highly regarded Vanderbilt University team known for its many studies of imagery and chemotherapy, assessed the effectiveness of biofeedback and relaxation training in reducing the aversive side effects of cancer chemotherapy on 81 patients.


The 81 patients were randomly assigned to one of 6 groups (two kinds of biofeedback, no biofeedback, with or without relaxation -- that is, electromyographic biofeedback, skin temperature biofeedback, and no biofeedback groups, combined with either relaxation therapy and no relaxation therapy).

Outcomes were assessed with physiological, patient-reported and nurse-reported measures, taken over 5 consecutive chemo treatments.

The investigators found that relaxation therapy patients showed decreases in nausea and anxiety during chemo, and decreases in physiological arousal measures after. On the other hand, the 2 biofeedback interventions yielded some reduction in physiological indices, but no other effects.

The study concludes that relaxation therapy is effective in reducing adverse consequences of chemotherapy; and that past data on the effectiveness of biofeedback was probably due to its having been combined with relaxation therapy, and not to the biofeedback alone.

Your relationships with others and your health can easily become victim to your inability to release the bonds that guilt place on our mind, body, and soul.

By simply changing how we look at...

Speaking with confidence

Numerous times that I've heard that public speaking is one of the biggest sources of fear in the Western world. So, in many ways public speaking can be treated right any other fear and anxiety. Nevertheless, unless this fear is merely a part of a larger and more prominent phobia or trauma reaction, it is a rather simple matter to address with hypnosis. Like with any other fear this one can be addressed to some degree as an unjustifiable defensive reaction to eight misperceived threat. However, one must also consider the role that a person's natural empathetic talent plays. When...

How do you become a better person?

We’re at the beginning of a new decade. The end of 2009 left many people shell-shocked from the world-wide economic meltdown. Thousands have lost jobs, homes and life savings. But, as with any adversity, humans have the ability to recreate themselves, to create a better future.

However, change – whether on a global scale or personal – starts with thought. To change your weight, your finances, your outlook on life you have to change how you think. There is power in thought.
