Minoo Asadzandi

This study was conducted to design and validate "an Islamic religious spiritual health training model for patients." Content analysis was applied for health education models and motivation theories in this qualitative study. Based on the components of the spiritual care model of Sound Heart, compatible concepts were adopted and formulated to a model...

AIM: To explore and understand the experience of concealed pregnancy and develop a framework for practitioners. BACKGROUND: Numerous cases of concealed pregnancy resulting in serious outcomes including maternal and perinatal death, newborn abandonment and neonaticide are reported internationally. Historically concealed pregnancy is associated with oppressive religious cultures where premarital pregnancy was shunned. Concealed pregnancy has traditionally been viewed through a biomedical lens and associated with mental illness but this assertion remains unsubstantiated by robust evidence...

Religions have historically established ways to regulate the lives of their followers, impacting conceptions of wellbeing and health. Likewise, state agencies have incorporated a more complex definition of health, including a lack of bodily illness, stability, and social, psychological, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Using the category of care in a broad sense, we seek to put these conceptualizations into tension in order to identify points of agreement and discrepancy among the ways of defining health and wellbeing by state and religious agents...

There is considerable lack of clarity on the medical facts surrounding management of ectopic pregnancy. In particular, it is not widely appreciated that by the time an ectopic pregnancy is diagnosed, in most cases, there is no viable fetus (i.e., the fetus has already died). Moreover, there is very little ethical guidance from the medical profession regarding the emotionally difficult decision to terminate a wanted pregnancy when the life of the mother is at risk. The best articulated positions on this topic come from religious groups, based on the principle of double effect...

It is evident that date fruits provide a wide variety of essential nutrients which impart potential human health benefits. In Bangladesh, the popularity of date and its consumption surge few-fold during Ramadan among Muslims owing to the profound emotion related to religious belief that breaking of dawn-to-dusk fasting with dates is fulfilling a Sunnah. The present study aimed to explore the microbiological quality of the five most popular fresh date samples (Nagal, Dhapas, Boroi, Morium, and Tunisia) purchased from different locations of Dhaka City, Bangladesh...

The prevalence of high blood pressure is increasing and expanding preventive and treatment measures may be useful. Some data in the literature suggest that meditation can play a role not only in stress management but also in blood pressure control and cardiovascular disease prevention. Mechanisms involved may be based on the regulation of emotional and biological responses to stress, by regulation of the autonomous nervous system. This approach is available to everyone interested, has no adverse effects and is not related to any particular religious beliefs...

Although there is literature that describes coping strategies of women who experience intimate partner violence (IPV), the definitions of common coping strategies and the two-dimensional model of coping styles (emotion-or problem-focused) may not fully delineate how these women manage their day-to-day lives. Using an Interpretive Description method and feminist standpoint principles, in-depth interviews were conducted with 40 Thai women regarding how they managed living in the context of IPV. Data were analyzed using an iterative thematic analysis procedure...

Sociocultural psychology can contribute to the understanding of religion, as it examines the dynamics by which the social and cultural world creates the conditions for the lives of unique people. This approach focuses especially on semiotic dynamics, by which religion can both guide practices and sense-making, but also become an object of shared representations. Drawing on a series of past studies, I first adopt an ontogenetic perspective, to explore early development into a sociocultural environment in which religion is present, and then to address young adults' religious bricolage...

Surgery is a relatively commonplace medical procedure in healthcare settings. The mental health status of the person undergoing surgery is vital, but there is dearth of empirical studies on the mental health status of surgery patients, particularly with regard to the factors associated with anxiety in surgical conditions. This study investigated the roles of religious commitment, emotion regulation (cognitive reappraisal and expressive suppression) and social support in preoperative anxiety in a sample of 210 surgical inpatients from a Nigerian tertiary healthcare institution...
