Response to individualized homeopathic treatment for depression in climacteric women with history of domestic violence, marital dissatisfaction or sexual abuse: results from the HOMDEP-MENOP Study - Mac ías-Cortés EDC, Llanes-González L, Aguilar-Faisal L, Asbun-Bojalil J.

BACKGROUND:  Although individualized homeopathic treatment is effective for depression in climacteric women, there is a lack of well-designed studies of its efficacy for depression in battered women or in post-traumatic stress disorder. The aim of this s...

Introduction: VR immersion therapy is a practical, noninvasive and riskless technique with promising applications for rehabilitation. Preliminary studies have demonstrated its feasibility and effectiveness for various therapies targeting depression, anxiety disorders, and PTSD using exposure, relaxation, and mindfulness techniques. VR has also been shown to be an effective pain management tool for acute and chronic pain relief. These techniques tend to focus on distraction and redirecting cognitive resources from pain attention towards the VR stimuli.

Heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback is a simple and noninvasive method for brain stimulation. This method includes paced breathing at a rate of about 6 breaths per minute (0.1Hz), which is slower and more rhythmical than natural breathing. HRV biofeedback has been used to successfully treat a wide spectrum of diseases, such as asthma, COPD, IBS, fibromyalgia, hypertension, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and insomnia (Gevirtz, 2013). It has been employed to improve performance in athletes and human operators.

Introduction: Recent open-label studies report that excitatory repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (dmPFC) may be clinically beneficial for a variety of psychiatric disorders, including treatment-resistant major depressive disorder (TRD), eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, comorbid post-traumatic stress disorder borderline personality disorder. However, the clinical efficacy of dmPFC-rTMS is heterogeneous, and have been formally evaluated in only one randomized controlled trial of modest sample size.

Background: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a chronic psychiatric disorder associated with disruption in social and occupational function. Available treatments are less effective at reducing symptoms and improving function in military veterans. To this end, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) represents a novel approach to PTSD. Intermittent theta-burst stimulation (iTBS) is a new, more rapid TMS protocol with emerging data supporting efficacy in depression.

Repetitive TMS (rTMS) represent the front-line of innovative approaches to correct dysfunctional brain networks. rTMS is FDA-approved for patients with depression, OCD and clinical trials for PTSD and substance use are underway. Despite this increasing use, knowledge of how repetitive stimulation induces brain plasticity in humans is critically lacking and will be necessary to develop next-generation personalized brain stimulation treatments. Here, we investigate the neural mechanisms underlying rTMS using direct brain recordings with high spatiotemporal resolution.
