Despite wide use by the public, limited evidence is available for many complementary and integrative health (CIH) practices. Thus, clinical researchers knowledgeable about CIH disciplines are necessary to study the efficacy and effectiveness of CIH practices to benefit the public health. To partially address the need for clinical researchers versed in CIH, the authors of this study report the design of an interprofessional clinical research training program focused on CIH, the Building Research across Interdisciplinary Gaps (BRIDG) program, supported by a 5-year T90/R90 grant from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health...

OBJECTIVE: An alcohol-free mouthwash of curcuminoids purified from the turmeric (Curcuma longa Linn.) rhizome was formulated using a cosolvent system, comprising chitosan and polyethylene glycol (PEG) 400, and determined for its efficacy and safety in management of denture stomatitis (DS) in comparison with a chlorhexidine (CHX) mouthwash. DESIGN: A single-center, randomized, controlled parallel-arm trial was conducted. SETTING: The study took place at the Faculty of Dentistry, Prince of Songkla University, Hat-Yai, Thailand, between June 2016 and June 2017...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Yoga is a mind and body practice that includes relaxation, meditation, breathing exercises, and body postures. It can be effective in enhancing the functioning of several body systems, including the lower urinary tract. Normal lower urinary tract functioning depends in part on the coordination of the bladder, urethra, pelvic floor and other muscles, and the nerves that control them. Lower urinary tract dysfunction can lead to symptoms, that is, stress urinary incontinence (UI), urinary frequency, nocturia, urinary urgency with and without incontinence, and mixed UI...

OBJECTIVES: Acupuncture uses needle stimulation upon the body's meridian points to alleviate physical and psychologic symptoms. In clinical practice, acupuncturists often recommend patients to attend follow-up treatment to achieve cumulative benefit over time. Adherence to acupuncture treatment was studied, and demographic and clinical factors were tested that may predict adherence. DESIGN AND SUBJECTS: A retrospective chart review at an acupuncture teaching clinic was conducted using data from 2014, where patients routinely received recommendations to return for follow-up visits to continue their management of the same health condition...

INTRODUCTION: Main cardiovascular parameters such as heart rate (HR), blood pressure, and myocardial oxygen consumption (MOC) are tightly regulated by a multifactorial, nonlinear control system. Increased HR because of physical activity is often accompanied by an increase in blood pressure. Postural changes have an effect on the baroreceptors, and stretching exercises and isometric contractions modulate muscle mechanoreceptors eliciting increases in blood pressure. However, a hot environment increases the core temperature inducing vasodilation and plasma volume changes that might contribute to a drop in blood pressure...

OBJECTIVES: Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a growing health problem with limited nonsurgical treatment options. Prolotherapy is an injection-based technique for chronic KOA pain; health plan coverage is limited, presenting an access barrier. A local health plan recently included coverage for prolotherapy for KOA, but uptake and treatment response in routine care are unknown. The authors conducted a pilot-level quality improvement (QI) project to explore the feasibility, acceptability, and effects of prolotherapy for painful KOA in a primary care setting...

OBJECTIVES: Poststroke cognitive impairment (PSCI) has constituted a heavy public health burden worldwide. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been widely used in treating PSCI. This study aimed at validating the TCM syndrome patterns of PSCI by using data mining methods. The findings will shed light on the TCM pathogenesis theory of PSCI, and thus provide translation for optimization of syndrome-targeted treatment strategies of PSCI. DESIGN: This is a registry study-based participant survey conducted in 14 medical centers in eastern China...

BACKGROUND: Ayurveda is a traditional Indian system of medicine. The customized Ayurvedic approach consists of a combination of several diagnostic procedures and subsequent individualized therapeutic interventions. Evaluation of inter-rater reliability (IRR) of Ayurvedic diagnoses has rarely been performed. The aim of this study was to evaluate IRR of Ayurvedic diagnosis for patients with knee osteoarthritis. METHODS: A diagnostic reliability study of 30 patients and 4 Ayurvedic experts was nested in a randomized controlled trial...

OBJECTIVES: Physical therapy (PT) modalities are used in the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Acupuncture is a treatment option often sought after by FMS patients. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of PT modalities with those of acupuncture on pain, daily function, and quality of life in FMS patients. DESIGN: A comparative effectiveness study. SETTING AND SUBJECTS: Forty-four female patients between the ages of 18-70 years presenting to Baskent University Faculty of Medicine Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine with a new diagnosis of FMS according to the American College of Rheumatology, with manifestations of chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain symptoms, normal routine blood tests, and a desire to receive PT or acupuncture were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: Despite surveys indicating a high prevalence of blenderized tube feeding (BTF) as an alternative to commercial enteral nutrition (EN), there remains a paucity of data regarding use in clinical practice. The objective of the present open-label pilot study was to assess the safety and effectiveness of BTF in adult patients being given home enteral nutrition (HEN). DESIGN: This is an open-label pilot study, in which all participants who had been on traditional EN formulas were changed to BTF for 6 weeks...

OBJECTIVES: Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychotomimetic cannabinoid compound that is found in plants of the genus Cannabis. Preclinical research has suggested that CBD may have a beneficial effect in rodent models of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This effect is believed to be due to the action of CBD on the endocannabinoid system. CBD has seen a recent surge in research regarding its potential value in a number of neuro-psychiatric conditions. This is the first study to date examining the clinical benefit of CBD for patients with PTSD...

OBJECTIVES: Nonpharmacologic approaches have been characterized as the preferred means to treat chronic noncancer pain by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There is evidence that mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) are effective for pain management, yet the typical MBI may not be feasible across many clinical settings due to resource and time constraints. Brief MBIs (BMBIs) could prove to be more feasible and pragmatic for safe treatment of pain. The aim of the present article is to systematically review evidence of BMBI's effects on acute and chronic pain outcomes in humans...

OBJECTIVES: The combination of biomedicine and traditional and complementary medicine (T&CM) is often referred to as integrative medicine. However, the degree to which the medical disciplines are integrated varies between medical settings, and it is believed by some to be impossible due to epistemological and paradigmatic differences. Clinicians' perspectives are important determinants of how different medical disciplines are used together. This study explores the perspectives of experienced Chinese medicine practitioners when asked about the most ethical model (opposition, integration, or pluralism) for the relationship between biomedicine and T&CM...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of treatment with thread-embedding acupuncture (TEA) using polydioxanone in addition to usual care for patients with chronic nonspecific neck pain (CNP) compared with treatment with usual care alone. METHODS: A single-center, assessor-blinded, two-armed randomized controlled trial was performed. One hundred and six outpatients with CNP were randomly allocated into the TEA plus usual care (TU) group or the usual care (UC) group in a 1:1 ratio...
