Women Treated for Breast Cancer Follow Coventional Treatment with CAM

More and more women are now successfully being treated for breast cancer, and wind up searching for ways to hedge their bets on staying strong and well after treatment is completed. A recent survey out of Western Oregon University asked 551 ex-breast cancer patients about their use of 15 different complementary and alternative (CAM) therapies after completion of allopathic therapy for breast cancer. These were women in the Portland OR area who were diagnosed an average of 3.5 years earlier.

Two thirds of the women had used at least one CAM therapy during the previous 12 months. The majority did this without a recommendation from their doctor. Relaxation/meditation, herbs, spirutal healing and megavitamins were used most often. The majority felt that using these therapies were at the very least, "moderately important" in remaining cancer-free.

Significant predictors of CAM use were younger age, higher education and private insurance.

Reasons for using these therapies included enhancing overall quality of life, feeling more in control, strengthening the immune system and reducing stress. CAM use did not reflect any negative attitudes toward conventional medical care, but rather an orientation toward self-care and health optimization.

Don’t Let Your Fear of Death Control Your Life

I vividly remember the time that I learned of my mortality. I was probably around four or five years old when I suddenly realized that I was not going to live forever. As I matured and grew older – and having survived a near fatal automobile accident – I decided that I wanted to focus on living rather than constantly working about my demise. Obviously, all of us are aware that life is going to end sometime. However, by choosing to live everyday to its fullest your life can become rich and rewarding.

If death is constantly on your mind, it is time to let these thoughts go....

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...

Smoking tobacco and hypnosis

The various forms of tobacco use to include smoking can be easily affected to the use of hypnosis. In fact, I've always said that it is probably the most successful topic that I address as a hypnotherapist. Obviously, the reason for my success rate has a lot to do with the fact smoking tobacco is a very highly toxic habit with many negative implications and my unique approach. My typical success rate with tobacco smokers is around 90%. And by this I mean success after only one session. I measure the success of the number of people with told me that they either completely quit immediately,...
