BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The practice of yoga is associated with enhanced psychological wellbeing. The current study assessed the correlation between the duration of yoga practice with state mindfulness, mind-wandering and state anxiety. Also, we examined if an additional 20 min of yoga breathing with intermittent breath holding (experimental group) for 8 weeks would affect these psychological variables more than regular yoga practice (control group) alone. METHODS: One hundred sixteen subjects were randomly assigned to experimental (n = 60) and control (n = 56) groups...

The aim of this paper is to theoretically explore the origins and possible psychotherapeutic applications of some neo-pagan, neo-shamanic, or psycho-spiritual women's movements that are currently spreading in Western countries. In spite of their great diversity, they are all encompassed within the term "ecofeminist spirituality." This article analyzes their ideological, historical, and cultural origins, placing special emphasis on their psychotherapeutic role and describing the main tools and fields of application...

The World Health Organization strategy for global health includes a culturally-sensitive blending of western biomedicine with traditional forms of healing; in practical terms this approach is often referred to as integrative medicine. One distinct element within the systems of North American integrative healthcare is naturopathic medicine; while the basic premise of its fundamental approach to care - supporting healthy lifestyle behaviors - is as old as medicine itself, the early history of organized naturopathy in North America was heavy in theory and light on critical analysis...

BACKGROUND: Integrative cancer care (ICC) is used by approximately 50% of cancer patients to complement oncologic treatments and to address unmet needs. One ICC practice is anthroposophic medicine, integrating conventional and complementary cancer care. It specifically provides mistletoe therapy (MT), but also intensive counselling, natural remedies, creative and movement therapies, nursing procedures, nutrition, and others. The objective of this study was to explore perceptions, themes, goals, procedures, and observations of experienced AM doctors with regard to the subjective dimensions of ICC...

CONTEXT: There is need for a short validated self-report instrument for assessing the feeling of being loved. The Feeling Loved instrument asks: "Do you feel loved?" and "How loved do you feel?" as well as "Do you love yourself?" and "How much do you love yourself?" with 100 mm visual analogue scales assessing the continuous response options. OBJECTIVE: To assess convergent and discriminant validity and to explore psychometric structure for this novel self-report measure...

The role of grateful disposition is also examined by incorporating gratitude as a moderator METHOD: Data were collected using a structured questionnaire from high school teachers working with government schools in the southern region of India. Hypothesised relationships were tested using Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) RESULTS: Results reveal significant relationships between workplace spirituality, subjective happiness, and gratitude...

CONTEXT: Excessive weight is a health problem that can exacerbate multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms and its associated comorbidities such as depression and fatigue. In addition, weight may be a moderator of exercise effects on depression and fatigue symptoms. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the effects of exercise training on fatigue and depression in normal and overweight individuals with MS. METHODS: Sixty-six persons with MS were randomly assigned into an exercise or control condition based on body weight status (overweight vs...

The survival rate of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and extrahepatic metastases is very poor. Sorafenib, a targeted chemotherapy agent, has been shown effective for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but it is associated with serious side effects. In addition, although surgery has been regarded as effective for lung metastases from HCC, its use in these patients is limited. Complementary and alternative medicine, including traditional Korean medicine (TKM), is increasingly used in cancer treatment, as it has been found to improve patient quality of life and maintain tumor size...

BACKGROUND: Neck pain is one of the commonest complaints and an important public health problem across the globe. Yoga has reported to be useful for neck pain and hot sand has reported to be useful for chronic rheumatism. The present study was conducted to evaluate the add-on effect of hot sand fomentation (HSF) to yoga on pain, disability, quality of sleep (QOS) and quality of life (QOL) of the patients with non-specific neck pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 60 subjects with non-specific or common neck pain were recruited and randomly divided into either study group or control group...

Studies of various characteristics of the human face indicate that it contains a wealth of information about health status. Most studies involve objective measurement of facial features as correlated with historical health information. But some individuals also claim to be adept at intuitively gauging mortality based solely upon a quick glance at a person's photograph. To test this claim, we invited 12 such individuals to see if they could tell if a person was alive or dead based solely on a brief examination of his or her photograph...

LETTER
Jason A Kaufman
OBJECTIVE: The human mind-body possesses a remarkable innate ability to heal. Grounded in the evolutionarily conserved systems of the brain and body, nature appears to function as the fundamental source of wellness along the two vectors of attention and relaxation. Yet, our species is moving away from nature at a time when humanity is just beginning to rediscover its benefits. CONCLUSIONS: Exposure to natural environments may provide a "window" of healing that can be extended through a continuum of intervention through the use of guided meditation and ultimately hypnotic suggestion...
