Mind-Body Interventions for Surgery: Evidence and Exigency


Henry Dreher's superb summary of research with mind-body interventions for surgery appears in the Fetzer Institute's Advances in Mind-Body Medicine, Vol 14, no.3, Summer 1998, pp. 207-222. His discussion of Henry Bennett's placebo controlled, double blinded research with 4 audio interventions on 335 surgery patients establishes that the Health Journeys tape for Surgery was the only tape that offered statistically significant results.


The study yielded profound results on the reduction blood loss, length of hospital stay and anxiety levels, both state (the fluctuating kind) and trait anxiety (which presumably doesn't change, because it is seen as a relatively stable personality feature). In fact, the Naparstek guided imagery tape was so potent, that Dreher devotes a whole section of this article to trying to figure out why it outperformed all the others.

The ego in hypnosis

Who am I? Ever since Sigmund Freud the concept of the ego has been an intense topic of conversation. We attempt to understand who we are in terms of not only our physical description, but also our values, beliefs, and behaviors. When all of this is considered, we just may have a reasonable concept of our “I-ness.” This can also be referred to as our ego. In the Freud-influenced Western world a healthy mind is often synonymous with a healthy ego. This means that a stable ego is presumed to be a core requirement for the maintenance of adequate mental health. However, as normal ins-and-outs...

The meaning of empathy

Our ability to sense other people's feelings is the key to survival with any civilized society. It may also be directly related to our ability to learn languages and customs. The discovery of mirror neurons in the 1990s showed that are empathetic nature is very much a part of our neurophysiology. Additionally, other neuroscientists have frequently discussed the fact that properly nurtured and socialized infants and children have also developed specific parts of the brain, which are associated with the ability to show empathy. People without these abilities are often called sociopaths or...
