Chronicles of Health Creation: Report Shares Successes/Challenges in M.D.-Led and N.D.-Led Integrative Patient-Centered Medical Homes
Positive outcomes in patients with obesity and multiple chronic conditions are among the findings in an investigation recently reported out as "Prototypes Emerging of MD-Led and ND-Led Integrative Patient-Centered Medical/Health Homes." One remarkable early lesson appears to be that integrative care should not be dismissed -- as some do -- as a pastime of wealthy health hobbyists. Successes are being reported with Medicaid patients and others who have no prior experience with acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, yoga or other integrative services who are assigned to these integrative patient centered medical homes. Howeve...

Holistic Solutions for Anxiety & Depression in Therapy
“It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.” — Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.E.) “The art of healing comes from nature and not from the physician. Therefore, the physician must start from nature with an open mind.” — Paracelsus (1493 – 1541) Treatment options that have long been considered outside the mainstream are becoming commonplace: a survey shows that nearly two in five adults in the United States have tried complementary or alternative therapy in the last year. As clinicians, it is our job to work with the individual t...

The Placebo Effect: Harnessing the Healing Power of the Mind
Having performed research for a number of years on the healing effects of both Western medicine and complementary therapies such as Tai Chi and meditation, I'm intrigued by the question of which factors actually contribute to improvements in health. Do Western and complementary therapeutic modalities share any common healing factors? In our society we generally assume that Western therapies heal and complementary therapies, like meditation or acupuncture, do not. If some improvement comes after a complementary therapy, I've heard people say, "It's just the placebo effect." But what exactly is the placebo effect? And what i...

The Alexander Technique can help you (literally) unwind
(Follow me at @DrEvaSelhub) In the 1890s, a Shakespearean actor named Frederick Matthias Alexander set out to discover why he often lost his voice when he performed. (Imagine yourself as a Shakespearean actor, completely dependent on your voice to pay your bills, finding yourself without a voice just when you needed to perform!) Needless to say, Alexander had to figure out why this was happening. He began by observing himself in multiple mirrors while he prepared to perform. Indeed, he did discover that something changed prior to his speaking: He was contracting the muscles in his upper body, especially his neck, so strong...

Chronicles of Health Creation: RAND Report Begs New Look at Integrative Medicine and Health Professionals in the Triple Aim Era
Are you a thing or are you a human? If someone wishes to assess your potential contributions to this life we live, what is the best starting assumption: thing or human? The questions may seem silly. But a recent report from the RAND Corporation bores in on how regular medicine reduced complementary and alternative medicine professionals to "thing" status -- as "modalities" -- in the first years of the integrative medicine era. The title of the report is "Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Professions or Modalities?" The discussions among policy makers, practitioners and delivery system leaders synthesized in ...

Complementary therapies for neck pain
This study is making news because of its major finding: when the participants were assessed a year after the start of the study (that is, 6 to 7 months after completing treatment), those assigned to acupuncture or Alexander Technique lessons reported significantly less pain and disability than those receiving usual care alone. No serious side effects due to treatment were reported. Of course, there are caveats Before we declare victory over neck pain, we should mention some important limitations of this research. They include: More than half of the patients with neck pain originally considered for the study were excluded....

Doctors Give New Advice For Treating Morning Sickness
BOSTON (CBS) – Morning sickness can make life unbearable for some expectant mothers, but now there is new expert advice so women don’t have to suffer as much. Gaby Barajas has been miserable with morning sickness during her pregnancy. At times, she couldn’t keep food or drink down. “It was to that point that I was so desperate just to feel better already,” says Gaby. Her doctor suggested the 32-year old try a treatment that combines vitamin B6 and the antihistamine, doxylamine. Now the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is recommending the combination as a first-line treatm...

Acupuncture reduces hot flashes in breast cancer survivors
(University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine) Acupuncture may be a viable treatment for women experiencing hot flashes as a result of estrogen-targeting therapies to treat breast cancer, according to a new study. Hot flashes are particularly severe and frequent in breast cancer survivors, but current FDA-approved remedies for these unpleasant episodes, such as hormone replacement therapies are off-limits to breast cancer survivors because they include estrogen. The results of the study are published this week in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

7 Things to Know While You're Undergoing Chemotherapy

My particular flavor of cancer was stage 1, grade 3, triple negative infiltrating ductal carcinoma. That's a mouthful, huh? I had my bi-lateral mastectomy performed and one month later I began six months of ACT (Adriamycin, Cytoxan, and Taxol) chemotherapy.

They Shoot Horses, Don't They? Not If These Equine Innovators Can Help It
Four years ago, Phil Yarbrough’s horse Mercedes broke her leg and ripped apart her knee while running in her pasture outside Atlanta. "She went over a hill, and she did not come back up," Yarbrough said. Conventional wisdom suggests that horses with broken legs can't be saved. Hundreds of racehorses with injured limbs are euthanized each year. In June, a horse named Helwan was euthanized after he broke a bone on the same track where, hours later, American Pharoah won the Triple Crown But Yarbrough wasn't willing to consider this fate for his horse. "She's like a kid to me," he said. Veterinarians at the Uni...
