These are examples of diseases that many patients have. Integrative Medicine is beneficial. So it is very important to choose the best Mind-Body Integrative Medicine practice. it could benefit a patient the most. Do you see any difference in some of the Integrative Medicine Mind-Body practices? For example, yoga, tai chi and massage therapy. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Perhaps some other Mind-Body practices? How do you choose the best mind-body practice that will benefit the patient the most? Is the choice of Mind-Body practice based on cultural and personal preference? Is there a difference between different types of mind-body practices? Dr. Kevin Barrows, MD. Integrative Medicine specialist, Director of Mindfulness Program, UCSF. Yes, that’s a great question. We do factor in personal and cultural preference for sure. But the fundamental way to choose the best mind-body medical practice for each patient is to look at the research. You look at the evidence. We have studies that show tai chi helps patients with Parkinson’s disease. So a mind-body medicine therapy for a Parkinson’s disease case would be tai chi. We know biofeedback can help relieve migraine. So that might be our first choice for migraine. Hypnosis and guided imagery are often effective in a hospital setting around procedures. Before someone is going to get a surgery or procedure done. Or you can do it guided imagery and hypnosis during or after surgery. So I start with the research. What we know to be true about where these mind-body therapies. They are effective. And then I match them up with a patient. But you’re correct about the cultural and the personal preferences. The way I try to help someone choose a mind-body medicine is to learn a little bit about them. I then give the patient just a preliminary description of each mind-body medical practice. So I can see what interests them. I can see what gets them excited. Then I favor the Mind-Body practice where we have research evidence. But ultimately it has to be something they they want to do and that they are motivated to practice. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. So that’s important and that’s part of the concept of integrative medicine. To look at what is evidence-based. What works based on what experience and evidence. And choosing the best Mind-Body practice in accordance with the cultural preferences and personal preference of the patient. Dr. Kevin Barrows, MD. Exactly, it does display those two principles. Yes, adherence to the evidence-based principle. But also the awareness about the patient’s psychology. We have to tune into the patient. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. How to choose best Mind-body practice?
