Fatigue during breast cancer radiotherapy: An initial randomized study of CBT plus hypnosis.
The study purpose was to test the effectiveness of a psychological intervention combining cognitive-behavioral therapy and hypnosis (CBTH) to treat radiotherapy-related fatigue. Design: Women (n = 42) scheduled for breast cancer radiotherapy were randomly assigned to receive standard medical care (SMC) (n = 20) or a CBTH intervention (n = 22) in addition to SMC. Participants assigned to receive CBTH met individually with a clinical psychologist. CBTH participants received training in hypnosis and CBT. Participants assigned to the SMC control condition did not meet with a study psychologist. Main Outcome Measures: Fatigue was measured on a weekly basis by using the fatigue subscale of the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT) and daily using visual analogue scales. Results: Multilevel modeling indicated that for weekly FACIT fatigue data, there was a significant effect of the CBTH intervention on the rate of change in fatigue (p < .05), such that on average, CBTH participants' fatigue did not increase over the course of treatment, whereas control group participants' fatigue increased linearly. Daily data corroborated the analyses of weekly data. Conclusion: The results suggest that CBTH is an effective means for controlling and potentially preventing fatigue in breast cancer radiotherapy patients.

The miracles of modern medicine are not be taken lightly. The mere fact that the longevity of the average person is much longer than it was a few decades ago should be sufficient evidence of its value. However, the story does not stop there. Modern allopathic medicine focus primarily based on systems involving pharmaceuticals and surgery. Very little emphasis is placed on the power of the mind. Even though drug trials will consider placebo and nocebo effects, still little effort is made to understand why they play a role. Furthermore, there's little explanation as to why several research...
As a professional who regularly talks to groups about hypnotherapeutic medicine, over the years I’ve encountered more than one medical professional who has deemed that I have crossed the line and ventured unjustly into an area where they most certainly have superior knowledge. While my expertise is in the area of clinical applications of hypnosis, I feel that everyone who serves in healing professions must be aware of their continued need for further exploration and that they must accept the fact that they are very far from being perfect. One word that quickly calms the most ardent medical...
Weight loss is probably one of the most difficult challenges faced by way too many people around the world. Being obese or over weight as defined by an excessive Body Mass Index (BMI) is a symptom of excessive calorie intake versus inadequate motivation.
Unlike bad habits such as smoking and nail biting, eating is something that a person cannot live without. They cannot “kick the habit” and get thin. So, the trick is finding the right balance between eating and calorie burning.
On the other hand, the quality of a person’s nutrition is also very important. It is not all about calorie...
