  • Bengali questionnaire validation among geriatric population visiting

      Aims The authors intend to develop translated Bengali questionnaires measuring depression, stress, mindfulness and quality of life among geriatric population seeking homeopathic care and to examine effectiveness of homeopathic treatment subsequently in the said conditions by an open, observational trial. Methods A mixed method bi-phasic study – a cross-sectional validation study in the first phase, followed by open, observational trial in the second phase was conducted using 4 translated questionnaires – Geriatric Depression Scale, Perceived Stress Questionnaire, Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale, and Quality of Life Scale. Hamilton's Anxiety Scale was physician-administered; hence translation, further validation and testing cross-cultural adaptability was unnecessary. Results Total 110 geriatric patients were enrolled; 60 suffered from depression, 86 from stress, 59 from anxiety. Exploratory principal component analysis using varimax rotation provided indications for construct validity. Questionnaires were internally consistent (Cronbach's α 0.745–0.926); with acceptable concurrent validity (Pearson's r 0.552–0.884). After the questionnaires were found valid by psychometric evaluation, the subsequent open observational trial for 3 months demonstrated individualized homeopathic treatment to be effective for the said conditions by changing the questionnaire scores significantly (P<0.00001; Cohen's d 0.568–1.499). Conclusion The questionnaires appeared valid and reliable. Effect sizes were promising, forming basis of up-taking efficacy trials. Limited generalizability of treatment effects necessitates cautious interpretation. Trial registration: CTRI/2015/06/005927.

      Introduction To compare the efficacy of T. terrestris (fruits) with placebo in menopausal transition symptoms. Materials and methods Patients (n=60) were equally randomized either to receive orally 3g powder of Tribulus or placebo twice daily for 8 weeks in this single-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel study. The primary outcome included the total score of Menopause Rating Scale (MRS). The secondary outcomes included the MRS composite subscale scores and severity of symptoms. Statistical tests were used to analyze the results. Results At post-intervention, Tribulus in comparison to the placebo showed a statistically significant reduction in the severity of menopausal transition symptoms, MRS total and composite subscale scores (P < 0.001) without any side effects. The intra-group comparison showed a significant reduction in the MRS total, subscale scores (P < 0.001) and severity of symptoms (P <0.05). At post-intervention, Tribulus group showed higher reduction than the placebo group in the MRS total mean score (10.43±5.19 vs 16.86±4.9). Tribulus group showed comparatively higher reduction than the placebo group in somatic (4.03±2.38 vs 6.72±2.5), psychological (4.1±2.43 vs 6.33±2.24) and urogenital (2.3±1.60 vs 3.93±1.72) composite subscale scores with a statistically extremely significant difference (P<0.001) at post-intervention. Conclusion Tribulus was more effective than the placebo in alleviation of menopausal transition symptoms and can be a safer alternative to hormone replacement therapy.

      Objective Patient-centred care (PCC) is increasingly recognised as a valuable paradigm of clinical care, particularly in the field of chronic disease. As the use of complementary medicine (CM) grows, so does the need to explore the clinical experience of CM patients. This study aims to provide an examination of patient perceptions of the degree to which CM practitioners employ a patient-centred approach during consultation. Design Cross-sectional survey preliminary study. Methods A patient-reported survey was administered to assess perceptions of practitioner empathy and support, patient empowerment, and PCC in a multi-profession CM student clinic offering acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, nutrition and myotherapy. The survey was comprised of four existing measures: the Consultation and Relational Empathy (CARE) measure, Patient-Centred Care scale, Perceived Provider Support scale and Empowerment scale. Results Amongst 252 respondents, positive perceptions towards all five professions were consistently reported by participants for all four measures. A higher proportion of positive experiences of practitioner empathy and PCC were reported by participants consulting with a naturopath, nutritionist or homeopath compared to those consulting with a myotherapist or acupuncturist. Participants who visited the clinic for assistance with a chronic health condition reported more positive perceptions for items regarding communication from the Patient-Centred Care scale (p = 0.02) and self-efficacy from the CARE measure (p = 0.04). Conclusion CM clinical care appears to be characterised by a patient-centred, empathic and empowering approach. CM may present a valuable resource of PCC, particularly within the field of chronic disease management. Further research is required in order to explore this approach in the wider CM community.

      Setting and objective ‘Manthena Satyanarayana Raju Arogyalayam’ is a 500-bedded hospital in South India that offers ‘Integrated Naturopathy and Yoga’ (INY). We aimed to determine if INY reduced blood pressure and the need of anti-hypertensive medications in hypertensive patients. Design Prospective study involving pre–post-comparative analysis of patients enrolled between April and July 2015. Blood pressure, anthropometry, blood parameters and compliance to diet and yoga (diet and yoga score on a scale of 0–10) were measured at baseline and 3 months. Results Of 104 patients, 80 (77%) had 3-month follow-up. Of them, 79 (99%) achieved target BP control (<140/90mmHg) and 66 (83%) achieved this with >50% reduction in antihypertensive medication dose, and in 8 (10%) patients, all medications were withdrawn. There was a significant increase in diet (2.7–7.4), yoga scores (1.5–5.6) and decrease in body weight, body fat, blood triglycerides and glycosylated haemoglobin levels. Conclusion These early results are promising and need further study with long-term follow-up.

      In evidence-based medicine, meta-analyses are often considered to provide an exceptionally high level of evidence. Beyond other systematic review formats, meta-analyses allow for statistically pooling results of original research. This approach allows us to increase statistical power, improve precision, investigate heterogeneity, and settle controversies across different clinical trials. However, meta-analysis requires rigour in methodology, in order to avoid “mixing apples and oranges”. Study design, participants, interventions, comparators, and outcomes need to be clearly defined, and statistical methods need to be applied precisely. For researchers in specialized fields such as integrative medicine, additional considerations on the unique features of therapies need to be applied. This article describes practical and academic insights into preparing a meta-analysis for publication.

      Background Obesity is a significant public health issue with no consensus regarding optimal medical management. Integrative medicine (IM) may help to fill this gap. Objectives (1) To characterize the sociodemographics, psychosocial functioning, health behaviors, and current medical conditions across BMI classifications in patients seeking IM; and (2) to examine how patients’ reasons for seeking IM care, treatment goals, services sought, and services provided differ based on BMI. Methods Survey data were collected from patients seeking care at nine BraveNet IM centers. Sociodemographics, psychosocial health, lifestyle behaviors, and reasons for seeking specific IM services were compared across BMI categories using Chi-square test, Fisher's exact test, or one-way analysis of variance. Logistical regression was used to compare reasons for seeking IM care, treatment goals, and services sought and provided across BMI categories. Results 2,015 patients were included in this study; 300 (14.9%) were obese and 580 (28.8%) were overweight. Obese patients were more likely to be non-White, unmarried, and uninsured, and have lower education, lower income, and at least one chronic disease (p<0.05). They also had the lowest rates of aerobic activity (67.4% exercise<3x/week, p<0.01), and greater depression (CESD-10 score 10.1±6.6, p<0.01), stress (PSS score 6.3±3.5, p<0.01), fatigue (avg 5.5±2.4 on scale 1-10, p<0.01), and pain (avg 3.6±2.5 on scale 1-10, p<0.01). Obese patients were more likely to seek manipulative/body-based services (OR=1.46, 95% CI=1.10–1.93, p<0.05) and to seek and receive energy therapies (seek: OR=1.49, 95% CI=1.07-2.07; receive: OR=2.56, 95% CI=1.28-5.10), but less likely to seek IM care for greater compatibility with their beliefs and culture (OR=0.72, 95% CI=0.53-0.97). There were no significant differences between BMI categories for IM treatment goals. Conclusion Obese adults seeking IM care may represent a unique patient population with potential unmet health needs. IM may provide approaches to more effectively address the multifaceted complexities of obesity.

      Preliminary research[2–7] suggests dance is beneficial for people with Parkinson's disease (PD) and can serve to compliment traditional medical treatments. There are many types of dance classes[4–6] however, research on Dance for PD® (DfPD®) model has shown rapid growth in participant attendance and interest over time[2,3]. In addition, unlike other studies where the description of the dance program has been rather vague, the DfPD® model has clear principles and a specific structure. The DfPD® model was developed in collaboration with the Brooklyn Parkinson Group and Mark Morris Dance Group, these dance classes are specifically designed to address symptom-specific concerns relating to PD. For researchers, this model allows easier replication to examine effects than a dance program that is not widely disseminated or as specific and the DfPD® model was implemented within this study for these reasons. What remains unknown, is the specific length of dance intervention required, measured in weeks and hours, until improvements are seen in motor impairments and quality of life (QoL) in PD. Objective We aimed to replicate and extend previous findings[2,3] where enhancements were shown on short-term motor (1-day)[3] and quality of life using the DfPD® model. Here we conducted a 12-week pilot study using the DfPD® model, where these enhancements were observed in 34% less dance intervention duration within this model (15hours), than the other two aforementioned studies (8-months[3] & 17-months[2]). Design In this quasi-experimental, non-controlled study, 9 participants completed 2 motor and QoL questionnaires before and after the second and twelfth class at DfPD®. Results Results indicated motor improvements for both balance and gait in short-term (1-day) and long-term (12-weeks). No improvements in QoL were observed. Conclusions Participation in DfPD® model dance classes, improved motor symptoms in both short (1-day) and long-term (12-week) durations. Overall, QoL did not change from the second to twelfth week.

      Objective Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a medicinal plant from Fabaceae family. This clinical study was designed to evaluate the effects of Fenugreek seeds supplementation on serum biochemical parameters of patients with borderline hyperlipidemia. Materials and Methods A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted on 56 patients with borderline hyperlipidemia that were divided in two groups: F group received 8g Fenugreek seeds powder sachets and P group received placebo sachets daily for 8 weeks. After 2 months, triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-desnity lipoprotein (HDL), fasting blood glucose (FBG) and body mass index (BMI) were evaluated and compared with the baseline. Results After 2 months, TG, TC, LDL and FBG significantly decreased in F group in comparison with P group, but these changes were not significant in HDL and BMI. Conclusion Our findings showed that Fenugreek seeds supplementation, as a phenolic-rich herb can be effective in the reduction of some lipid profile in patients with borderline hyperlipidemia.

      Background Breath is the dynamic bridge between body and mind and Pranayama (breathing techniques) is one of the most important yogic practices. There is a lack of scientific evidence on cardiovascular functions during the practice of pranayama techniques, especially Kumbhaka. Hence, this present study aims at evaluating the cardiovascular functions of healthy volunteers during the practice of Bahir Kumbhaka (BK) (external breath retention). Materials and Methods Nineteen healthy volunteers with the mean (standard deviation) age of 23.53 (3.08) were recruited. All the subjects were asked to perform BK for the duration of 30sec (1 round) and repeat the same for 3-rounds with the rest period of 1minute between each round. Baseline, during and post assessments were taken before, during and immediately after the practice. Statistical analysis was performed using repeated measures of analysis of variance with the use of statistical package for the social sciences, version 16. Results Result of this study showed a significant increase in systolic blood pressure (SBP) and rate pressure product (RPP) during the practice of BK which was revert back to normal after the practice; and a significant increase in diastolic blood pressure (DBP), mean arterial pressure (MAP) and double product (Do-P) during the practice of BK which did not revert back to normal even after the practice. Conclusion The result of this pilot study suggests that the practice of BK increases the SBP, DBP, MAP, RPP and Do-P during the practice.
