Reincarnation Type Presentations of Children with High-Functioning Autism in Sri Lanka
Publication date: Available online 1 March 2018 Source:EXPLORE Author(s): Miyuru Chandradasa, Layani Champika Autism is characterised by impaired social communication and restricted repetitive behaviours.

Investigating the Effects of the Progressive Muscle Relaxation-Guided Imagery Combination on Patients with Cancer Receiving Chemotherapy Treatment: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
Conclusions Independent trials indicate that the PMR–GI combination is an effective way to tackle the impact of nausea and vomiting and to improve patients’ mental state. However, studies involving other types of primary tumors would be useful because seven of the eight clinical trials only included breast cancer patients. Future research on the identification of potential effects on disease-related parameters (e.g., cytokines and disease-recurrence) and on patient survival is highly needed.

Can mindfulness training improve medication adherence? integrative review of the current evidence and proposed conceptual model
Publication date: Available online 23 October 2017 Source:EXPLORE: The Journal of Science and Healing Author(s): Elena Salmoirago-Blotcher, Michael P. Carey Medication adherence is a complex, multi-determined behavior that is often influenced by system- (e.g., cost), drug- (e.g., regimen complexity), and patient-related (e.g., depression) factors. System-level approaches (e.g., making medications more affordable) are critically important but do not address patient-level factors that can undermine adherence. In this paper, we identify patient-level determinants of non-adherence and discuss whether mindfulness-training appr...
