Mind-Body Interventions in Oncology.
OPINION STATEMENT: A number of mind-body interventions have been studied for use with cancer patients, primarily measuring outcomes relating to pain control, anxiety reduction, and enhancing quality of life. This chapter defines the scope and characteristics of mind-body interventions, followed by a selective review of research indicating their appropriate use or cautions in cancer care. Mind-body interventions included are hypnosis, imagery/relaxation, meditation, yoga, and creative therapies. Current evidence supports the efficacy of hypnosis and imagery/relaxation for control of pain and anxiety during cancer treatments. Meditation is supported for reductions in stress and improvements in mood, quality of life, and sleep problems. There is a growing body of support for yoga from randomized controlled trials for improving quality of life, sleep, and mood. Creative therapies such as visual arts, dance, and music may help cancer patients express their feelings and cope with the demands of a cancer experience. Research on biological marker effects of mind-body therapies remains inconclusive. Study of mind-body interventions generally requires additional, methodologically rigorous investigation of how various interventions best assist patients during various phases of cancer survivorship, although a major benefit of these therapies lies in the opportunity for patients to self-select them.

Generally, a man is looking for a woman who is able to bear children. And, a woman is normally more attracted to someone who can provide safety and security. Often this means that a woman is seeking a man who displays physical prowess. However, I’ve noticed how intellect and financial...
During my military career and while living in the southeast United States frequently I have come upon people who are addicted to dipping snuff or having a piece of chewing tobacco in their mouths. It seems to have become a habit that is encouraged in certain cultures. While there are some that are proud of their habit and feel that the little circle that a tobacco can makes in the back pocket of their jeans is a status symbol, still most people find the habit rather disgusting. Even many addicted users admit this as well.
Unlike smokers, those that chew or sniff tobacco products...
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. It is where creativity begins. If you cannot perceive of yourself as being slim, it’s unlikely that...
