Dr. Ian Banks, Men’s Health Forum, introduces the programme by exploding the myth that men don’t care about their health and instead points to the way society does not expect men to discuss their health. Throughout the programme he introduces the different issues: stress, prostate health, exercise and maintaining your identity as you get older. Case Study 1 – Graham was dragged off to yoga by his girlfriend. Case Study 2 – Randy, our second case study. Case Study 3 – Using clear, concise language, together with pictures, the therapist Max Tomlinson is able to describe the prostate gland. Case Study 4 – The final item in the programme shows how complementary medicine can help those men who are going through some kind of change or stressful time in their life.

Introduction – Vox-pops from the case studies. Nick Avery, a GP and Homeopath, has taken an interest in the relationship between hormones and women’s health problems. He describes how difficult it is to treat hormone problems because even if you have a blood test progesterone and oestrogen vary widely within the normal range. Case Study 1 – We hear from Anne, who had been treated extensively with hormones by her doctor to try and combat painful and almost continuous periods. Case Study 2 – Annette had been trying to have a baby for over a year before she was diagnosed as experiencing early menopause. Case Study 3 – Dr. Marilyn Glenville is a nutritionist who provides a natural alternative for people not wanting to go on HRT. Case Study 4 – Scilla, however, approached the menopause another way under the supervision of zero balancing therapist, John Hamwee.

Mistletoe for Cancer?

May 26, 2008 by

mistletoe.jpg

Mistletoe leaves and twigs have historically been considered a herbal remedy. While mistletoe berries and leaves are toxic and can cause death depending on the amount ingested; extract from the plant is currently being studied for its therapeutic properties. Mistletoe plant extract is considered to be a complementary cancer treatment by many researchers.

Per the National Cancer Institute:

Mistletoe extract is studied as a possible anticancer agent because it has been shown to:

  • Boost the immune system.
  • Kill cancer cells in the laboratory.
  • Protect the DNA in white blood cells,including cells that have been exposed to DNA-damaging chemotherapy drugs.

mistletoe-exract.jpgIscador is a trade name for a mistletoe extract– other trade names include, Helixor, Eurixor, and Isorel. The extract was publicized when actress Suzanne Somers revealed that after surgery to remove a cancerous lump, followed by radiation, she took Iscador to boost her immune system.

The extract has been used widely in Europe. Mistletoe requires a prescription and should always be given under medically supervised conditions due to the potential for anaphylactic reactions. Mistletoe extract is generally given as an injectable at the tumor site for ten to fourteen days. Warmth at the injection site and flu like symptoms are some of the reported side effects. Mistletoe extract should not be used by pregnant women.

Per the American Cancer Society:

“Commission E (Germany’s regulatory agency for herbs) has approved mistletoe as palliative therapy for malignant tumors (to help treat symptoms, not cure disease).”

Use of Mistletoe in the United States:

Per the National Cancer Institute:

“The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of mistletoe as a treatment for cancer or any other medical condition. The FDA does not allow injectable mistletoe extracts to be imported or used except for clinical research.”

In the U.S. doctors can legally order the extract directly from Europe, though it is not approved for sale in the United States.

Clinical Trials in the U.S. involving Mistletoe:

While more than thirty clinical trials have been conducted in Europe involving mistletoe, the National Cancer Institute reports flaws in many of the studies.

Currently the National Cancer Institute in collaboration with the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine is sponsoring an ongoing study:

Gemcitabine Combined With Mistletoe in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors. Visit the site for more information.

Sleep and the Cancer Patient

May 20, 2008 by

sleep.jpgInsomnia is considered one of the most serious side effects of cancer.

45% to 50% of all cancer patients deal with disturbances of sleep.

The sleep cycle consists of four stages, going from light to deep sleep and finally REM (Rapid Eye Movement). The sleep cycle takes about 90 minutes. Per SleepDex, “infants spend almost 50% of their time in REM sleep. Adults spend nearly half of sleep time in stage 2, about 20% in REM and the other 30% is divided between the other three stages . ”

Are you getting enough sleep? A typical adult needs about 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night. Many people say they only need five hours of sleep a night, but researchers have found that this is true of only about 10% of the adult population.

The typical cancer patient has many valid reasons why their sleep is being disturbed.

Causes of sleep disturbances in cancer patients:

  • Chemotherapy and other medication side effects
  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Lower GI problems such as constipation or diarrhea
  • Depression
  • Interruptions of sleep in the hospital
  • General fatigue
  • Stress

The Mayo Clinic lists 11 alternative cancer therapies, three of which are exercise, yoga and Tai Chi. Per the Mayo Clinic: “Alternative cancer treatments won’t play any role in curing your cancer, but they may help you cope with signs and symptoms caused by cancer and cancer treatments. Common signs and symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, pain, difficulty sleeping, and stress may be lessened by alternative treatments. ”

What’s Yoga? Yoga is a mind and body therapy that includes gentle stretches, breathing practices, and progressive deep relaxation. Visit the Yoga Center site for information on the many types of yoga.

What’s Tai Chi? A form of exercise that utilizes slow gentle movements and deep relaxed breathing.
