  • The Potential Downstream Effects of Proposed Changes in Australian Private
           Health Insurance Policy: The Case for Naturopathy
    • Authors: Matthew J. Leach; Amie Steel
      Abstract: Publication date: Available online 4 April 2018

      The Australian government has recently announced major reforms to the private health insurance (PHI) system. Amongst the changes are the removal of government-subsidised PHI rebates for consultations with most unregistered complementary medicine practitioners, including naturopathy. However, there are several doubts about these reforms, as this commentary explains, which primarily relate to (1) the basis of the decision, and (2) the consequences of the proposed changes. In terms of the former, an insufficient clinical evidence base was claimed to be the main driver of this decision. However, the evidence informing this decision had several limitations, and in the case of naturopathy, was somewhat contradictory. The absence of enforceable standards (from statutory registration) was another factor contributing to the decision; yet, for naturopathy, this has largely been the product of government inaction, rather than a lack of action from the profession. In terms of the downstream effects of these reforms, these could be considerable, including mass membership withdrawal from ancillary (extras) cover and cost-shifting to the public health sector; potentially leading to a rise in PHI premiums, increased demand for general practice services, and a rise in the number of avoidable hospitalisations. The proposed changes also deviate from international standards and declarations, and contravene key performance indicators of a quality health care system. In light of these concerns, the commentary calls for an immediate rethink of the intended PHI reforms, at least for naturopathy.

      Objectives Excluding gluten containing foods from the diet is medically indicated for the management of coeliac disease, wheat allergy, gluten ataxia, non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, and dermatitis herpetiformis. However, the number of people following a gluten free diet (GF diet) far exceeds the number of people with an indication for such dietary restriction. It has been suggested that 70% of individuals who are recommended GF diets by complementary medicine practitioners have not had coeliac disease adequately excluded. The aim of this study was to describe the diagnostic and clinical management practices of naturopaths, Western herbalists and nutritionists (non-dietetic) associated with recommending GF diets. Design, subjects and outcome measures A cross-sectional 40-item questionnaire was developed and administered online to 145 Australian naturopaths, nutritionists (non-dietetic) or Western herbal medicine practitioners via professional associations and a practice based network (PRACI) between February and April 2017. Demographic data and practice information related to recommending GF diets was collected. Results A total of 56.5% (82/145) practitioners reported that in the majority of cases they did not undertake any recommended diagnostic process, and 48% (71/145) of practitioners referred to a general practitioner to exclude medical conditions related to gluten ingestion prior to recommending a GF diet. A total of 10% (15/145) ordered coeliac serology through local laboratories, and 17% (24/145) through functional pathology companies. Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity was diagnosed by 56% (82/145) through an elimination and reintroduction diet, and 61% (88/145) used a diet and symptom diary. IgG antibody tests were used by 23% (33/145) of practitioners, and 5% (7/145) used kinesiology prior to recommending a GF diet. Conclusion Clinical guidelines for the diagnosis of gluten related disorders are not followed by a substantial number of complementary medicine practitioners prior to recommending a GF diet. Strategies are required to improve the standard of practice in this area.

      Background Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is an autoimmune illness of the thyroid gland. The presence of thyroid antibodies (Thyroglobulin Antibodies and Peroxidase Antibodies) is suggestive of the diagnosis. Patients can have Hashimoto's thyroiditis without the presence of thyroid antibodies. The treatment of Hashimoto's thyroiditis is usually expectant observation of the thyroid function and subsequent exogenous thyroid hormone replacement, if deemed appropriate. This case report outlines a novel approach that led to an improvement in symptoms, and a reduction in one thyroid antibody, for a young woman. Case A 23 year old woman diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, 8 months prior, presented at her initial visit with symptoms of extreme fatigue, anxiety and hair loss. Her thyroid antibodies were strongly positive, with a normal TSH. She was commenced on a three-tiered integrative treatment plan, implemented by the clinic naturopath and general practitioner, working in a collaborative care model. This involved a gluten and grain free diet, support of her methylation cycle and anti-oxidant capacity with micronutrients, and stress management. Conclusion Over a treatment period of 15 months, using an integrative approach, she experienced clinical improvement in her symptoms and return to functional daily life, as well as a significant reduction in thyroid antibodies.

      Background Biomarkers associated with inflammation and immune function are increasingly being used to examine mechanisms of the effects of mind-body therapies. Less researched are biomarkers associated with cognitive and executive functioning in the study of mind-body therapy mechanisms and effects. This study explored the feasibility of recruiting breast cancer patients (BCPs) and implementation fidelity of participation in a research project utilizing the 4-stage Creative Psychosocial Genomic Healing Experience (CPGHE), a mind-body protocol that is theorized to create epigenetic effects via targeted psychological change in emotional triggers in coping with cancer. Methods Eight BCPs were identified as eligible (stages I, II, III, early phases of treatment) and five consented to one of two intervention groups (allocated to a single session or two sessions of CPGHE). Blood draws were examined pre- and post- intervention for a stress/inflammation gene expression marker, Nuclear Factor kappa-B (NF-kB), and three markers associated with synaptic plasticity undergirding cognitive and executive functioning: Early Growth Response 1 (EGR1), activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated protein (Arc), and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Results One consented BCP dropped out due to illness. The remaining four adhered to the 4-stage CPGHE protocol and found the CPGHE experience beneficial. Blood samples for the gene expression results were collected and processed according to planned protocol without incident. Conclusion Implementing the CPGHE and achieving good adherence among a sample of BCPs is feasible. Processing of blood samples collected from BCPs for gene expression data is also feasible.

      Objective To compare the clinical efficacy of Aegle Marmelos (L.) Correa (AMLC) leaf juice (supplementation (20g/100ml) for 60 days among type 2 diabetes mellitus subjects. Design Randomized-controlled trial. Setting Veraval. Gir-Somnath, Gujarat, India. Intervention Confirmed Type 2 diabetes mellitus subjects (n=60), were randomly divided to experimental (n=30) AMLC leaf juice supplementation (20g/100ml) and Control group (n=30) for 8 weeks. Main outcome measures: body-mass-index (BMI), body-fat-percent (BF%), Systolic and Diastolic blood pressure (BP), Fasting blood Glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin and Post prandial bolld 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). Results At 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. Conclusion AMLC leaf juice supplementation (20g/100ml) 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. Trial Registration No: The study was approved by Ethics Committee of Department

      Objectives Red yeast rice (RYR) has demonstrated neuroprotective effects in animal studies. The aim of this study was to access the efficacy of RYR for treatment of depression in patients with recent history of percutaneous coronary intervention. Design This was a 6-week double-blind placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial. Setting Participants included outpatient men and women aged 18 to 60 years old with history of coronary angioplasty, diagnosis of major depressive disorder based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V), and Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS) score of ≥20. Candidates were excluded in case of any other DSM-V disorders, use of lipid lowering agents in the last two weeks, elevated serum aminotransferases or serum LDL≤80mg/dL. Interventions Patients received sertraline (200mg/day) plus either red yeast rice commercially available capsules (2400mg/day) containing 10.05mg/day lovastatin or placebo. Main outcome measures The primary outcome was the difference in mean change of the HDRS score from baseline to endpoint between the two treatment arms. Results The primary outcome approached significance (Mean difference in score change(CI95%)=-1.24 (-2.51 to 0.03), p=0.056) and was accompanied by a significant time×treatment interaction effect [Two-way ANOVA: F (df, mean square)=4.42 (2, 13.687), p=0.015]. There was no significant difference between the two treatment arms in terms of lipid profile, liver function tests, or incidence of adverse events. Conclusions This is the first report on the benefits of RYR in treatment of depression. Future studies are warranted to confirm our findings and scrutinize the mechanisms of action.

      Objective Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) is defined as a domain of diverse medical and healthcare systems, practices, and products that are not considered as a significant part of conventional medicine. The study has aimed to assess hospital and clinical pharmacist perceptions, experience, and knowledge toward CAM; and determined commonly used information resources to answer CAM-related inquiries. Design The study has incorporated cross-sectional analysis using a questionnaire developed by item generation through a review of scientific literature and focus groups. Methods Most survey questions were adapted from ‘Rural Australian community pharmacists’ views on complementary and alternative medicine. A total of 199 pharmacists completed the survey. Results 20% of the participants indicated that they have completed their post-graduation in CAM qualification. It has been evaluated that 53% of the participants did not believe in the safety of CAM, and about 60% of participants were confident in discussing CAM therapy with the patients. Internet was the common route, used by participants to search for information regarding CAM. The relationship between different demographic variables and the attitude score of the participants was statistically significant (P=0.015). This is because pharmacists, who received postgraduate CAM qualification, had higher attitude score as compared to those, who did not receive post-graduate CAM qualification. There were also statistically significant differences (P=0.008) amongst the pharmacists, who frequently, sometimes, occasionally, or never recommend complementary medicine to the patients. Conclusion Pharmacists play an important role in ensuring that CAMs are used safely and appropriately; therefore, they need to be better informed about CAMs and better able to advise patients, seeking alternative remedies.

      Background The effective translation of research findings into clinical practice is a significant challenge to the evidence-based practice movement. In response, implementation science (IS) – the study and application of methods to facilitate the integration of research findings and evidence into healthcare policy and practice – has emerged over recent years. Discussion While IS has been developed for a wide range of health care settings and disciplines, there has been a paucity of critical discourse on the role of IS in complementary medicine (CM) practice – an area of health care that has gained increasing popularity across many countries and in addition, introduces a number of unique and significant challenges with regards to IS and research translation. In addressing this significant knowledge gap, this paper identifies a number of core features and considerations instrumental in progressing the examination and application of IS to CM-related practice and clinical decision-making. Summary IS (and its scientific study/practice) is a contemporary scholarly field that cannot be dismissed by those invested in ensuring that CM research is, and remains, practice-, practitioner- and patient-relevant.

      The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is increasing and some of this CAM is purchased as self-directed treatment for stress, a practice that may be very useful but dangerous if incorrectly applied. This paper reports on the findings of an Australian qualitative study involving semi-structured interviews to explore factors in the decision-making process of pharmacy customers purchasing over-the-counter CAM products for stress. Interview questions were based on the CAM Healthcare Model which takes into account a broad range of factors including values, beliefs and personal factors. We report that thematic analysis of the data illustrated four core concepts: CAM was the participants’ first choice, self-sought information was always checked, a willingness or desire to tell their doctor was evident and there was a level of dissatisfaction with conventional healthcare. These concepts align closely with the personal trait of self-care ability/tendency which, on closer examination, manifests in the key theme, the need for control. The findings illustrate important aspects of the decision-making process in purchasing CAM products for stress and point to areas of future research for pharmacists and pharmacy educators.

      Background Chest pack is one of the common hydrotherapeutic procedures. Though hot chest pack (HCP) is commonly employed to improve various cardio-respiratory problems, there is no scientific report validating its effect on either cardiovascular or respiratory functions. The current study is first of its kind, conducted to evaluate the effect of cardio-respiratory functions in healthy volunteers. Materials and Methods Thirty healthy female volunteers with the age range of 18-24 years were recruited and randomly divided into 2-groups. Subjects of both the groups underwent 20-minutes each of HCP (study session) and supine rest (control session) sessions in 2-different orders. In the first group, 15 subjects underwent HCP on day-1 and SR on day-2, while in the second group the order of intervention was reversed. Assessments were taken before and after each session. Statistical analysis was performed using statistical package for the social sciences, version 16. Results A significant reduction in systolic blood pressure was observed both in study and control sessions. However, a significant reduction in diastolic blood pressure, mean arterial pressure, pulse rate, rate pressure product (RPP) and double product (Do-P) along with a significant improvement in peak expiratory flow rate was observed only in the study session unlike control session. Moreover, reduction in RPP and Do-P was better in study session than in the control session. Conclusion Results of this study suggest that 20minutes of HCP might be effective in improving cardio-respiratory functions of healthy volunteers.

      Aim The aim of this cross-sectional analysis was to identify sociodemographic, and health related predictors for fasting use among patients of a large integrative internal medicine ward. Methods A cross-sectional analysis was conducted among patients being referred to a hospital for internal and integrative medicine. Patients’ ever-use of fasting for their primary medical complaint and their perceptions of benefit and harm were assessed. The potential predictors of fasting use included sociodemographic characteristics, health behaviour, internal medicine diagnosis, health, satisfaction with health, and health locus of control; and they were analysed using multiple logistic regression analysis. Results Of 2144 respondents, 15.8% reported having used fasting, with 61.2% reporting perceived benefits and 3.9% harms due to use. Fasting use was positively associated with higher education, being diagnosed with osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia and regular fast food use, while patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, smokers, alcohol abstinent people and those with a high external social health locus of control were less likely to use fasting. A good health status and high internal locus of control were positively associated with the perception of fasting as helpful, while part-time employment, being diagnosed with inflammatory bowel diseases and being alcohol abstinent were negatively associated with perceived helpfulness. Conclusion There is significant use of therapeutic fasting by integrative medicine patients in Germany, with high self-reported benefit and low self-reported harms. Use of fasting by patients was not related to evidence of efficacy of fasting for their condition, with other factors being more predictive of fasting use.

      Background HIV+ adults have reduced quality of life due to disease-related morbidity and adverse events related to standard medical therapy. Constitutional hydrotherapy is a traditional treatment reported to improve immune function and general well-being. Clinical research on hydrotherapy is needed Objective To evaluate the short-term tolerability, safety and clinical effects of twice-weekly constitutional hydrotherapy treatments over a 6-week period in HIV+ adults. Methods The present study was an eight-week pilot clinical trial of fifteen HIV+ adults receiving twelve constitutional hydrotherapy treatments each over 6 weeks in an academic, Naturopathic medical clinic. Outcome Measures Retention in the trial, adverse events, CD4+ count, viral load, and clinical chemistries, including TNF-alpha levels, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and C-reactive protein. Other measures included anthropometrics and quality of life as measured by the RAND 36-Item Short Form Survey (SF-36). Two-sided, paired t-tests for homogeneity were applied to the difference in outcome variables between baseline and exit interviews. Results 12 of 15 participants completed the study per protocol. Treatments were well-tolerated and without any reported “Severe” side effects. No statistically significant adverse changes were observed in hematologic or inflammatory biomarkers, or anthropometric measures. There were no significant changes in CD4+ count or viral load. Changes in clinical chemistries were non-significant, except for a reduction on sodium concentration (139.6 mmol/L +/- 1.7 to 137.5 +/- 1.8; p=0.005). A non-significant decrease in mean hs-CRP was observed (7.5mg/L, +/- 14.2 to 1.7mg/L, +/- 1.4, p=0.21) with an absolute decrease in hs-CRP in each of the three participants with elevated hs-CRP levels at baseline. A non-significant reduction in systolic blood pressure (SBP) was observed (mean change -7.7mmHg, p=0.22) with 58% of participants experiencing reductions in SBP. Mean percent body fat decreased significantly (22.3 +/- 4.0 to 20.7 +/- 5.2, p<0.0001). In addition, a statistically significant increase in mean Energy/Fatigue score was observed (17.8 to 20.3, p=0.03) using the RAND-36 Short Form. Trends for improved Physical Functioning and Pain scores were of borderline significance (87.9 to 94.1, p=0.10 and 15 to 16.5, p=0.08 respectively). All remaining domains, including General Health, were without trend for change. Conclusions This clinical pilot study suggests constitutional hydrotherapy can be feasibly and safely administered to HIV+ adults, including those receiving HAART, without serious short-term adverse effects. Small, but significant, increases in clinical measures, physical functioning and quality of life were observed.

  • Medical Hypothesis: Light at Night Is a Factor Worth Considering in
           Critical Care Units

      Exposure to light at night is not an innocuous consequence of modernization. There are compelling data linking long-term exposure to occupational and environmental light at night with serious health conditions, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. However, far less is known about the physiological and behavioral effects of acute exposure to light at night. Among healthy volunteers, acute night-time light exposure increases systolic blood pressure and inflammatory markers in the blood, and impairs glucose regulation. Whether critically ill patients in a hospital setting experience the same physiological shifts in response to evening light exposure is not known. This paper reviews the available data on light at night effects on health and wellbeing, and argues that the data are sufficiently compelling to warrant studies of how lighting in intensive care units may be influencing patient recovery.

      Introduction Current study was designed to examine the effect of purslane on Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB). Methodology This randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled clinical trial was performed on women who suffered from HMB with their regular menstrual cycles. Both groups (48 in purslane-using group and 47 in control group) received mefenamic acid every 8hours from the first day to the third day of their periods in two menstrual cycles. In the intervention group, in addition to mefenamic acid, a capsule of purslane seeds, and in the control group, a similar capsule containing corn starch with the same protocol were administered. Pictorial blood loss assessment chart (PBLAC) was used to determine bleeding. Findings Concerning the number of days and volume of menstrual bleeding, one and two months after intervention, a significant difference was observed between the purslane and control groups (p<0.001). Conclusions Purslane boosts the effect of mefenamic acid and reduces HMB.

      Introduction Recent evidence suggests that mitochondrial dysfunction may play a role in the pathophysiology of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). We undertook a pilot investigation of a combination of nutraceutical nutrient compounds which are involved in mitochondrial function and energy generation, to assess their efficacy in improving symptoms of CFS. An open-label design was employed as CFS is largely treatment-resistant with limited placebo-response. Methods A 16-week open-label trial of a nutraceutical combination (primary nutrients: Coenzyme Q10, Alpha lipoic acid, Acetyl-l-carnitine, N-acetyl cysteine, B Vitamins, in addition to co-factors) was undertaken in Ten patients with CFS. Fatigue symptoms, mood and general health were assessed at each 4-week time point over 16 weeks. Of the ten patients (7 female, 3 male) with a mean age of 36.3, eight completed the trial. Results Linear mixed model analysis demonstrated a significant improvement in fatigue symptoms across treatment period on the Chalder Fatigue Scale (p <0.001). Specific improvements were found in tiredness, weakness, feeling sleepy or drowsy, as well as in sleep, and clinician-reported symptom-improvement. No benefit was observed in mood or other functional domains. No serious adverse events were noted. Conclusion These preliminary findings suggest that a combination nutraceutical compound of mitochondrial agents may improve CFS symptoms. Further investigation is warranted in a larger double- blind RCT. ANZCTR: ACTRN12616000567426

      Naturopathy is a system of healthcare through which practitioners apply core philosophies, theories and principles to integrate medical knowledge with natural treatment options. In recent years the naturopathic community has developed a stronger international coherence. Alongside this growing connectivity in the global naturopathic profession, there have been a number of calls for more systematic research attention to be devoted to naturopathy as a substantive research topic, as well as a need for the naturopathic profession to hone a culture of research and evidence-based practices and skillsets. Progress in this area has been made through the development of more pragmatic and whole systems naturopathic research. One aspect which is currently missing in the global naturopathic research landscape despite this growing pattern of practice-based, whole systems research is the application of international multicentre research projects. In response, we have established a research consortium for naturopathic academic clinics in four countries and across multiple world regions. This paper serves to overview the mission, scope and membership of the research consortium and explore some of the research designs and questions which it may support.

      Objective The Juglans regia leaf (walnut leaf) has been traditionally used to treat diabetes in Iran. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of aqueous extract of Juglans regia leaf on blood glucose in type 2 diabetic patients. Methods Thirty-seven type 2 diabetic patients aged 35–70 years with fasting blood glucose levels between 130mg/dl (7.2mmol/L) and 250mg/dl (13.9mmol/L) and HbA1c more than 7% despite using conventional oral hypoglycemic drugs received the Juglans regia capsule (250mg/TDS) or toast powder capsule (placebo) randomly for 3 months. Fasting blood glucose (FPG), postprandial blood glucose (PPG), and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) were assessed as primary outcome measures. Lipid profile and hepatic and renal function were assessed as secondary outcome measures. Nonparametric statistical tests were employed to compare the results with baseline in both groups using SPSS version 17. Results Nineteen patients in the Juglans regia group and 18 in the control group with a mean (±SD) age 55.8 (±7) completed the study. The FPG (p =0.02), PPG (p =0.008) and HbA1c (p=0.003) levels decreased significantly in the Juglans regia group after 3 months compared to baseline without any side effects. The changes of the variables were not significant in the control group. Conclusions This study suggests that the aqueous extract of J. regia leaf had a lowering effect of FPG, PPG and HbA1c in type 2 diabetic patients. Conducting further clinical studies is suggested with larger sample sizes to make precise conclusions about the efficacy and safety of this herb.
