The Effects of Relaxation Response Training on Menopausal Symptoms

In a 1996 randomized, controlled pilot study by Irvin, Domar, Clark, Zuttermeister and Friedman at New England Deaconess in Boston, 33 menopausal women between 44-66 years old were assigned to either Relaxation Response training, a support group or a control group.

As many of you know, the Relaxation Response is a technique developed by Herbert Benson that simplifies the essence of ancient mantra and breathing meditation. You do some conscious breathing and repeat a calming word or phrase to yourself, like "Peace" or "All is well". It's kind of a Meditation 101, and by keeping it simple, calling it "The Relaxation Response", and doing some outcome research with it, the wiley, practical Benson made it acceptable in corporate venues and other traditionally skeptical places ... to which we say, "GOOD FOR YOU, HERB!"

The Relaxation Response group had significant reductions in hot flash intensity (p < 0.05), tension-anxiety (p < 0.05) and depression (p < 0.05). The support group had significant reductions in tension-anxiety (p < 0.05) and confusion-bewilderment (p < 0.05). The control group stayed the same.

Side Bar: For all you statistics-phobic folk out there, these "p" numbers signify the probability that the same results would happen by chance ... so the smaller the "p", the more important the finding. When a "p" is less than .001, researchers start doing cartwheels and have to fight an urge to kiss their subjects.]

Therefore, for the most part we are sexually attracted to those people with whom we can mate and produce the healthiest offspring. Furthermore, a person is more sexually attractive if we instinctually believe that they are capable of fulfilling their role as either a nurturer for or provider. Even though this may seem to be reducing human sexuality to the animal level, in all actuality that is exactly what it means. A person who perceives in need to improve their sexuality most likely does not...

The challenge of smoking cessation

Why does anyone still smoke? Just about everywhere you go nowadays you see signs that clearly state that smoking is not allowed. Yet despite all of the sanctions, taxes, peer pressure, and with over 440,000 deaths every year in the US, there remain millions of hardcore tobacco users who just don’t seem to want or be able to stop this habit. Clearly, the fact tobacco products cause cancers of the lung, esophagus, larynx, and oral cavity should motivate any sane...

Health: Science or art

When a person considers whether maintaining health is a science or art, they normally consider the cultural or prevailing wisdom of the dominant medical institutions. Those institutions, which have legal sanction in our present society, include practitioners who primarily think of themselves as scientists. This is because they have received training that is flavored by scientific tradition. What most people do not realize is that medicine comes in a number of variations. Many of them have roots that precede the establishment of Western scientific thinking. On the other hand, despite the fact...
