CONCLUSIONS: At present, the field of e-health interventions for the treatment of anxiety or depression in children and adolescents with long-term physical conditions is limited to five low quality trials. The very low-quality of the evidence means the effects of e-health interventions are uncertain at this time, especially in children aged under 10 years.Although it is too early to recommend e-health interventions for this clinical population, given their growing number, and the global improvement in access to technology, there appears to be room for the development and evaluation of acceptable and effective technological...

What is holistic therapy? Holistic therapy is defined as non-medicinal recovery methods. At Cliffside, we use holistic therapy to complement traditional treatment practices. Holistic therapy aims to bring the mind, body and spirit into alignment. It focuses on the patient’s overall well-being while also treating physical symptoms of addiction and withdrawal. They can be very beneficial to addiction therapy because they can be calming, healing outlets to use in place of old behaviors. They support the constant growth of each patient – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Holistic therapy aids in he...

Bipolar disorder is highly treatable, and yet so many people don’t seek treatment. Or if they do seek help, they later stop taking their meds or stop attending their therapy sessions. Or both. And then their bipolar blows up. Their mania spikes. Their depression sinks even deeper. Sticking to treatment is not easy. Medication has side effects. Therapy takes work. The illness itself can be stubborn, exhausting, confusing. It can all feel so frustrating. We wanted to know what led some individuals to stick to their initial treatment — and why they’ve stayed dedicated ever since. Of course, life is not linea...

In this study, we evaluate the potential pharmacological effects of PSAP on acute stress restriction (ARS)-induced depressive and anxiogenic-like behavior associated with hyperalgesia and mechanical allodynia in male adult Swiss mice (25–35 g). The ARS is an unavoidable stress situation that was applied for a period of 4 h using an individual rodent restraint. Ten min after ARS, the animals were treated with the PSAP (10 mg/kg, intragastrically [IG]) or imipramine (IMI, 10 mg/kg, IG) and after thirty min they were submitted to the behavioral observations in the forced swimming test (FST), sucrose preference t...

ConclusionsAccording to patients, the use of PROs to measure symptoms in primary care clinics has the potential to be useful. However, patients are reluctant to complete PROs if they perceive that clinicians do not use the measures to improve care. Barriers to implementation in primary care (e.g., duration of visit) should be addressed to enhance the utility of PROs.Clinical trial registration ClinicalTrials.gov ID: NCT02383862.

In conclusion, I would like to add a value quote that I came across during my research. I feel this is something that we all could reflect on. Consider the following food for thought: “When the way you think, speak and behave match your values, life feels very good. You feel whole, content, in control. But when these do not align with your personal values, then things feel… wrong. Life feels uneasy. You feel out of sorts, disconnected, restless, and unhappy.” – Melli O’Brien

The story began a year ago, as did my divorce, but I will try my best to explain my relationship with Blake Chadick, as it was a major impact on me this past year, waiting for my divorce to be finalized.  I realize my blog is reading backwards at the moment, but should only be several entries or so.First of all, he's married.  He said his wife Melissa was very sick from the radiation treatment she received when she had colon (among other) cancers in 2011.  She slept half of the day, was in the the bathroom for the other half, and had a medication the constipated her for about 2 hours a day so she could be ac...
