  • A pilot trial examining the absorption of oral forms of folate
           supplementation in a healthy population: A randomised control trial
    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Integrative Medicine, Volume 6, Issue 2Author(s): Jessica Bayes, Nitish Agrawal, Janet Schloss Background & aimsFolate supplements are commonly prescribed by health professionals for a number of different conditions, however, the absorption of the different derivatives remains unclear. This pilot trial aims to assess the absorption of various forms of folate supplements in a healthy population.MethodsA four-week, single blinded, randomised control trial was conducted on 30 healthy individuals. The intervention included supplementation with 500mcg of either folic acid, folinic acid or 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). Fifteen participants were allocated to the intervention and fifteen to the control group for comparison. At baseline (week 0) a case report was completed and pathology tests for serum folate, B12 and MTHFR polymorphisms were conducted. Follow up serum folate blood pathology tests were assessed at week 2 and week 4 along with additional food diaries.ResultsOf the cohort, 87% (n = 26) were found to have a MTHFR polymorphism with both A1298C (n = 12) and C677 T (n = 18) being tested. Only13% (n = 4) of participants had no mutation. The different MTHFR mutations were observed across both the control group and all of the intervention groups. The mean (±SD) baseline folate was 33.7 nmol/L ± 7.55 (Reference range:>9.0). Participants who had both A1298C and C677 T polymorphism had lower baseline folate with a mean (±SD) of 29 nmol/L ± 8.75. During the four weeks an overall increase in mean serum folate was observed in both the folinic acid and 5-MTHF group. The folinic acid intervention saw a mean (±SD) increase of 15.3 nmol/L ± 3.56 and 5-MTHF saw a mean (±SD) increase of 9.1 nmol/L ± 1.67, however a decrease in mean serum folate was detected in the folic acid group. In the folinic acid and 5-MTHF groups, serum folate increases were observed in individuals irrespective of their MTHFR status.ConclusionsThis research has provided a foundation for further work investigating folate absorption. The results of the trial suggest that folinic acid has the best absorption, however, it may not have the best bioavailability. More research is required for greater clarification regarding the absorption and bioavailability of these supplements.

  • The effect of stress management incorporating progressive muscle

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Integrative Medicine, Volume 6, Issue 2Author(s): Georgia Georga, George Chrousos, Artemios Artemiadis, Pelekasis P. Panagiotis, Petros Bakakos, Christina Darviri BackgroundPrevious evidence indicates a negative influence of elevated stress on asthma symptoms and asthma-related quality of life.Objective To investigate the effects of stress management (SM; progressive muscle relaxation accompanied by biofeedback-assisted relaxation breathing),on stress levels, asthma control, asthma-related quality of life and physical exercise in patients with intermittent and mild chronic asthma.MethodsThis is a phase 2, two-armed, parallel randomized controlled trial using an intervention SM group (N=23) and a usual care (UC) control group (N=19). The measurements included the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), the Asthma Control Test (ACT), the Mini Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (MAQLQ) and one Likert-type question measuring frequency of weekly exercise. The assessments were carried out at baseline and after 8 weeks.ResultsMost patients had experienced zero or one asthma exacerbation during the previous year, while the mean duration of the disease was about 14 years for both groups. No differences were noted between the two groups at baseline. Patients in the SM group showed significant less perceived stress (p

Main outcome measures: body-mass-index (BMI), body-fat-percent (BF%), systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP), fasting blood glucose, glycosylated haemoglobin and post prandial blood glucose (FBG, HbA1c and PPBG), total, high, low and very low density lipoproteins and triglycerides (TC, HDL, LDL-cholesterol and TG), C-reactive protein (CRP), liver enzyme tests serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase and, serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT and SGOT), kidney function tests (creatinine), total protein (TP, albumin, globulin) and serum ferric reducing antioxidant potential (serum FRAP).ResultsAt 4 weeks, significant reduction was recorded in blood pressure SBP – 6.45%; DBP – 4.6%, FBG & HbA1c-20%; PPBG-15%; total cholesterol (TC-8%), LDL-15%), triglycerides (TG-11%), liver functions SGOT-19% and, SGPT-13%, increase in serum (FRAP-18%) in the subjects of EG post supplementation compared to baseline. When compared to control group, it reduced BF%, FBG, HbA1c, cholesterol, TG, LDL-cholesterol, CRP and raised HDL-cholesterol as well as improved antioxidant activity.ConclusionAMLC leaf juice supplementation (20 g/100 ml) for 60 days showed improvement in all bio-chemical parameters of type 2 diabetes mellitus, with enhanced efficacy and negligible adverse-effects. This juice can therefore, be supplemented along with oral hypoglycemic drugs to keep the above parameters in control. AMLC leaf being easily available and low cost, can be used as complementary therapy in the management of diabetes possibly due to presence of active components, aegelin 2, scopoletin and sitosterol in the leaf.

  • Correlation between tongue body colour, as quantified by machine learning,
           and clinical indices
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 February 2019Source: Advances in Integrative MedicineAuthor(s): Tadaaki Kawanabe, Mieko Tanigawa, Sachiko Kakizaki, Nur Diyana Kamarudin, Xiaoyu Mi, Toshihiko Hanawa, Hiroshi Odaguchi ObjectivesEvaluation of tongue colour is an important approach for assessment of human health in traditional East Asian medicine, which originated in ancient China. However, tongue colour analyses are unreliable due to poor quantification and reproducibility. Given these limitations, the utility of this technique as a clinical index has not been demonstrated. Here, we assessed whether tongue colour evaluations, as performed in Kampo (traditional Japanese) medicine, via an automated image acquisition system were associated with particular indices of patient health.MethodsWe obtained high colour reproduction tongue images from 816 Japanese subjects and applied a machine-learning analysis approach to the quantification of tongue body colour in them. Data on sex, age, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, pulse rate (PR), body temperature, body mass index (BMI), past medical history (PMH), and blood examination results (haemoglobin, Hb; creatinine) were also collected.ResultsTongue body colour was influenced by multiple clinical indices, per simple correlation analyses. In particular, sex, age, BMI, PR, and Hb were correlated with tongue body colour. No significant correlation with PMH was found.ConclusionsTongue body colour, as quantified with a machine learning approach, was found to be a clinical predictor of changes in several clinical indices, particularly those related to obesity and haemoglobin concentrations.
       
  • Verifying the validity of urinary kryptopyrrole (UKP) testing in an adult
           population: Protocol for a multi-stage research project
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 16 February 2019Source: Advances in Integrative MedicineAuthor(s): Amie Steel, Jason Rainforest, Janet Schloss IntroductionUrinary kryptopyrroles (UKP) are described as pyrrole compounds excreted in urine and have been associated with a broad range of signs and symptoms. However, causality between elevated UKP and the described symptoms of pyrrole disorder have not been established. A four stage project has been developed to verify the validity of a urinary kryptopyrroles test and attempt to establish a reference range for a healthy population.MethodsStage one will consist of a survey to clinicians who are currently using UKP testing in their practice to understand their perceptions of the clinical value and applicability of the test in addition to identifying the condition for stage three. Stage two consists of a clinical trial to establish a normal reference range for UKP in a healthy population. Stage three is a clinical trial exploring the correlation, if any, between UKP in a diagnosed health condition to the healthy population group. Stage four is a pragmatic trial assessing UKP levels in patients as used by clinicians as part of routine clinical practice.RecruitmentRecruitment for stage one will be via email invitation to SAFE Analytical laboratories Pty Ltd customer database. Stage two and three will be targeting the wider community in the greater Brisbane area in Queensland and aims to recruit 120 participants per stage. Recruitment for stage four will be conducted through community based clinical practices.ConclusionAt the conclusion of all stage, the validation of the UKP test from SAFE Analytical laboratories will be analysed. Formulation of a reference range for a healthy population range will be explored and compared to a diagnosed condition and other conditions as tested by clinicians in practice.
       
  • Therapeutic effects of saffron (Crocus sativus) versus fluoxetine on
           Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A double-blind randomized clinical trial
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 12 February 2019Source: Advances in Integrative MedicineAuthor(s): Borna Tadyon Najafabadi, Kiandokht Ghamari, Tahereh Kermany Ranjabari, Ahmad Ali Noorbala, Naser Ebrahimi Daryani, Elmira Vanaki, Shahin Akhondzadeh BackgroundIrritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is an expensive and prevalent functional bowel disorder that can reduce work productivity and quality of life especially among youth. IBS is characterized by recurrent abdominal pain associated with defecation or a change in bowel habits and commonly accompanied by depression and anxiety as comorbid situations. On the other hand, saffron (Crocus sativus) is an herbal medicine with anti-depressive properties. This study aimed to compare efficacy of saffron and fluoxetine in increasing IBS patients’ quality of life.MethodsSixty-six patients with IBS, according to Rome III criteria, participated in a double-blinded parallel group randomized trial. Patients were equally divided into two groups and either received saffron or fluoxetine for 6 weeks. Every 2 weeks, each patient was requested to complete IBS quality of life and hospital anxiety and depression scale questionnaires and asked to report side effects of treatment.ResultsBaseline characteristics of groups were insignificantly different. General linear model repeated measures revealed no significant within subject effect for time × treatment interaction difference among two groups for quality of life score (p-value = 0.755), depression (p-value = 0.643) and anxiety (p-value = 0.150) scores among groups.ConclusionsOur findings demonstrated that saffron could be as effective as fluoxetine in increasing IBS patients’ quality of life with similar anti-depressive and anxiolytic effect among these patients. What might make saffron a proper medical treatment alternative for IBS is its rare side effects, wide range of use and greater patient compliance. However, further investigation and research in the area is recommended.
       
  • Survival analysis and prognostic factors of the timing of first antenatal
           care visit in Nigeria
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 12 February 2019Source: Advances in Integrative MedicineAuthor(s): Adeniyi Francis Fagbamigbe, Clearance Abel, Baitshephi Mashabe, Ayo Stephen Adebowale ObjectivesThis study assessed the timing of the first ANC visit among pregnant women and identified its prognostic factors.DesignData obtained from 2013 Nigerian DHS, a cross-sectional and nationally representative survey, were used.MethodsWe included women who had had at least a childbirth or got a pregnancy terminated within the five years preceding the survey or currently pregnant as of the time of the survey. The outcome variable is the timing of the first ANC visit to skilled ANC service provider. Those who were either currently pregnant or lost pregnancy but have not accessed ANC were censored. Basic descriptive statistics and survival analysis techniques involving four models were used to analyze the data at p = 0.05. Data was weighted and adjustment made for survey design and sampling errors.ResultsAlmost half of the respondents were aged 25–34 years. Only 65.5% had at least one contact with skilled ANC providers and such visits were initiated mostly (58%) in the second trimester. The overall incidence rate of accessing ANC per month is 110 per 1000 women. Women with higher education had a higher adjusted hazard of accessing ANC than uneducated women (aHR = 2.89, 95% CI: 2.68–3.11). Older women from households in richer wealth quintile are more likely to initiate ANC. Women from households in richer wealth quintiles, those who had no problem in accessing ANC facilities, those with higher education, residing in urban areas and in the Southern region had a higher tendency of earlier ANC initiation.ConclusionANC utilization in Nigeria is low and the timings of first visits are delayed. For Nigeria to achieve timely and adequate use of ANC services, health facilities should be more accessible and women should be empowered in terms of education, autonomy, and earnings in addition to changes in social-cultural practices that prevent ANC uptakes.

  • Investigating the validity of Muscle Response Testing: Blinding the
           patient using subliminal visual stimuli
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 June 2019Source: Advances in Integrative MedicineAuthor(s): Anne M. Jensen, Richard J. Stevens, Amanda J. Burls Research ObjectiveTo determine if Muscle Response Testing (MRT) can be used to distinguish lies from truths using blind test patients.DesignA prospective study of diagnostic test accuracy was carried out using MRT to distinguish lies from truth.MethodsTwenty practitioners who routinely practised MRT were paired with 20 blind test patients (TPs). TPs were asked to speak simple true and false statements about visual stimuli presented subliminally (at 20 msec). In the subliminal phase, pairs performed 20 MRTs and 20 Intuitive Guesses (IG), consisting of 2 blocks of 10 statements each. In the Supraliminal Phase, the same picture-statement pairs were repeated. The order of stimuli presentation was randomly assigned so that each pair was presented with a unique series of stimuli.ResultsIn the Subliminal Phase, MRT accuracy (as percent correct) was found to be 48.5% (95% CI 42.8 – 54.2), which was no different from IG accuracy (47.8%; 95% CI 43.2 – 52.3; p = 0.68) or chance (50.0%; p = 0.59), and no different from MRT accuracy during the supraliminal phase (59.0%; 95% CI 50.4 – 67.6; p = 0.05). However, supraliminal MRT accuracy was significantly different from chance (p = 0.04), indicating that the pairs could perform MRT proficiently.ConclusionThe main reason for finding no effect is suspected to be due to an inadequate subliminal methodology, a process which is quite complex. Other explanations of results include: (1) MRT is not a valid test when the TP is blind, (2) Blinding TPs during MRT will produce ambiguous or unpredictable results, or (3) Nonconscious beliefs cannot be elicited using subliminal stimuli. Future research may wish to focus on exploring these possibilities. More specifically, subsequent studies may wish to use different methods to blind TPs, and establish whether MRT can be used to detect nonconscious processes, a generally held consensus among MRT practitioners.

  • Integrative Medicine for Significant Dysfunction from Tinnitus: Treatment
           Rationale and Protocol for a Randomized Clinical Pilot Trial
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 April 2019Source: Advances in Integrative MedicineAuthor(s): Ruth Q. Wolever, Rebecca J. Kane, A. Garrett Hazelton, Elizabeth M. Bechard, Debara L. Tucci ObjectivesFollowing the British Medical Research Council recommendations for pilot trials, this study aims to increase experience with a complex integrative medicine (IM) intervention in a randomized controlled design to assess the feasibility for studying this intervention in a larger trial. Specific objectives are to: 1) assess the feasibility of implementing this IM approach to improve dysfunction from tinnitus in a large clinical trial; 2) evaluate patient satisfaction with this complex intervention; and 3) obtain preliminary clinical efficacy data using the planned procedures and measures.Design & MethodsThis XXXX-funded pilot study targets retention of 40 participants with significant tinnitus-related dysfunction, recruited from a conventional otolaryngology clinic. To maximize experience with the intervention, enrolled participants are randomized in a 3:1 ratio to IM + a commonly applied sound-based and educational therapy (SBE) or to SBE alone. The 6-month IM treatment includes the same SBE, modeled after the Veteran’s Affairs Progressive Tinnitus Management approach, as well as 3 cognitive behavioral psychotherapy sessions, an 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course, 5 acupuncture sessions, and 9 telephonic health coaching sessions. Enrollment, retention, patient satisfaction and lessons learned by the trial team will determine the feasibility of using this complex IM intervention in a large trial. Baseline, post-treatment, and 3-months follow-up measures and trial procedures planned for the larger trial are also piloted, with change in tinnitus-dysfunction over the intervention slated to provide preliminary clinical efficacy data.DiscussionThis pilot protocol will inform decisions regarding the feasibility of using this complex IM intervention in a large clinical trial. The larger trial would potentially offer patients an IM treatment to amplify conventional SBE for those who are unable to habituate to tinnitus.
