Aromatherapy – American Cancer Society | Information and Resources …

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Other common name(s): holistic aromatherapy, aromatic medicine

Scientific/medical name(s): none

Aromatherapy is the use of fragrant substances, called essential oils, to alter mood or improve health. These highly concentrated aromatic substances are either inhaled or applied to the skin. Essential oils are distilled from plants, and approximately forty are commonly used in aromatherapy; among the most popular are lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, chamomile, marjoram, jasmine, peppermint, lemon, ylang ylang, and geranium.

Available scientific evidence does not support claims that aromatherapy is effective in preventing or treating cancer, but its use may enhance quality of life. Early clinical trials suggest aromatherapy may have some benefit as a complementary treatment in reducing stress, pain, nausea, and depression.

Aromatherapy is promoted as a natural way to help patients cope with stress, chronic pain, nausea, and depression and to produce a feeling of well-being. Proponents also claim aromatherapy can help relieve bacterial infections; stimulate the immune system; fight colds, flu, and sore throats; improve urine production; increase circulation; and cure cystitis, herpes simplex, acne, headaches, indigestion, premenstrual syndrome, muscle tension, and even cancer. Fragrances from different oils are promoted to have specific health benefits. For example, lavender oil is promoted to relieve muscle tension, anxiety, and insomnia.

There are different ideas as to how aromatherapy may work. Scent receptors in the nose are known to send chemical messages through the olfactory nerve to the brain’s limbic region, which influences emotional responses, heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration. Some proponents say these connections explain the effects of essential oils’ smells. The effects may partly depend on a person’s previous associations or recalled experiences with a particular scent. Others say the oils are absorbed directly into the system through the skin.

Aromatherapy is either self-administered or administered by a practitioner. Many aromatherapists in the United States are trained as massage therapists, psychologists, social workers, or chiropractors and use the oils as part of their practices.

The essential oils can be used individually or in combination and may be inhaled or applied to the skin. For inhalation, a few drops of the essential oil are placed in steaming water, atomizers, or humidifiers that are used to spread the water vapor and oil combination throughout the room. Sometimes the oils are placed in a heatproof dish over a candle or other flame to diffuse the scent.

Essential oils can be applied to the skin during massage, or they can be added to bathwater. For application to the skin, the oils are combined with another substance (a carrier), usually vegetable oil. Some essential oils can sometimes be used directly on the skin. Oils may also be used to make salves, creams, and compresses. Some people also apply drops of certain essential oils to their pillows.

Use of aromatic, perfumed oils dates back thousands of years to ancient Egypt, China, and India. In Egypt, such oils were used after bathing and for embalming mummies. Thousands of years ago the Chinese compiled an encyclopedia of information on the uses of plants, herbs, and different types of wood. In ancient India, aromatic massage was part of Ayurvedic medicine. In addition, the Greeks and Romans used fragrant oils for both medicinal and cosmetic purposes. However, it was the medieval physician Avicenna who first extracted these oils from plants.

René Maurice Gattefossé, a French chemist, originated modern aromatherapy and even the term itself. After burning his hand in a laboratory accident, he used lavender oil to soothe the pain. His hand healed quickly with no scar, and he attributed this outcome to the lavender oil. He published his first thesis, titled “Aromatherapie,” in 1928 and published a book under the same title in 1937. Aromatherapy was revived in the 1960s by French homeopaths Dr. and Mme. Maury. In the 1980s, aromatherapy began to grow in popularity in the United States. It is fairly well-established in England, France, Switzerland, and New Zealand.

Available scientific evidence does not support claims that aromatherapy cures or prevents disease; however, a few clinical studies suggest aromatherapy may be a helpful complementary therapy. In Britain, there are reports of the successful use of aromatherapy massage in people who have cancer to reduce anxiety, depression, tension, and pain. However, some studies show no difference in outcome between massage with aromatherapy oils and massage without them. There are also reports that breathing the vapors of peppermint, ginger, and cardamom oil seems to relieve the nausea caused by chemotherapy and radiation. However, these claims are not supported by available scientific evidence. Laboratory studies suggest that the oils can affect organ function, although whether this can be useful is not yet clear.

Clinical research on aromatherapy is in its infancy. Early trials suggest aromatherapy may help patients cope with chronic pain, stress, nausea, and depression.

In one controlled clinical trial, inhaling the vapors from black pepper extract reduced the craving for tobacco and improved participants’ moods. In a second controlled trial, the use of citrus fragrance by twelve depressed patients made it possible to reduce the amount of antidepressant medicine they needed.

Another study of aromatherapy suggested that the scent changed a person’s memory of pain, even though the patient’s perception of the pain’s severity while it was happening did not change. There was no difference between the aromatherapy group’s and control group’s pain ratings during a procedure, but after the fact, the aromatherapy group reported that the event was less distressing overall than the control group did.

There is also some evidence that the power of suggestion may explain at least part of the effect of aromatherapy. For example, in one study, the salt water placebo was just as effective in reducing nausea as the essential oil. In another study, the oils were more likely to produce the effect about which the subjects were told, regardless of whether it was the normally predicted effect. Several controlled studies using essential oils have shown no measurable effect.

In a randomized clinical trial of patients with bald patches on their scalp or skin, a daily scalp massage with essential oils was shown to be a safe and effective treatment for hair loss resulting from alopecia areata, a condition in which the patient’s immune system damages the hair follicles. This treatment has not been evaluated as a treatment for hair loss related to cancer treatments. Other laboratory and animal studies have looked at the ability of essential oils to kill or control certain germs and viruses when the oil is placed in direct contact with the germ.

Aromatherapy is generally safe. However, essential oils usually should not be taken internally as many of them are poisonous. Some oils can cause an allergic reaction. Some may cause irritation if applied undiluted to the skin. Aromatherapy oils have been reported as causing headaches, nausea, and allergic reactions.

Relying on this type of treatment alone and avoiding or delaying conventional medical care for cancer may have serious health consequences.

Reflux management tips – Get baby care advice at Huggies.com.au

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Baby in Bouncer

Every parent is desperate to find some way to help their baby who suffers from reflux. Here are a few ideas that may help, however we strongly recommend that you talk to your doctor or childhood health nurse for more information.

Positioning While Awake

Each baby will have their own preferred position that makes them more comfortable. Unfortunately it may take a little trial and error to find the one that suits your baby best. Here are a few positions to try:

  • Upright or with their head propped over your shoulder.
  • Lying on your forearm with their head supported in the crook of your elbow and your hand holding their crutch. Create an angle of about 30 degrees.
  • Seated in an upright position, do not allow your baby to slump in this position.
  • Leaning backwards at about 45 degrees.
  • Some babies like to lie on their tummy with their head propped up slightly.
  • At nappy change time try to avoid lifting their legs up into the air. Roll them to the side instead and if possible change their nappy before a feed rather than after.
  • A front pouch or sling may allow some relief for baby while giving you the opportunity of hands free time.

Feeding a Baby with Infant Reflux

If you are breastfeeding there is no reason why you should introduce formula into your baby’s diet. “Breast is Best” even for a baby that suffers from reflux. It is thought that because breastmilk is able to be digested more quickly than formula that this may be better for babies with reflux.

If you are bottle feeding there are several formulas available that are specifically designed for a baby with reflux. Check with your childhood health nurse for more information. Thickened formula makes a dramatic improvement for some reflux babies, but for others, there may be no effect. Some may even do worse on thickened formula.

Positions for Feeding

  • Some breastfeeding mothers find success with the “Twins position” (under the arm) or if your baby is a little older you could try feeding with them sitting in front of you sitting upright on your lap.
  • If you are bottle feeding your baby try to keep them in an up right position if possible.

Try to establish a feed/play/sleep routine to allow time for your baby’s milk to digest before lying them down for sleep. Avoid allowing your baby to fall asleep while feeding as this will probably lead to a catnap with your baby waking in pain soon after the feed has finished.

Some babies learn that the milk they crave is also the source of their pain and so are reluctant to attach or they may pull off repeatedly during a feed. Some babies learn that milk is soothing while they are drinking, and want to do so frequently (comfort feeding) Crying and back arching during feeding is common in babies with reflux.

Here are a few suggestions for feed time that may work for you; trial and error is the key until you find one that works for you both:

  • Lengthen the times between feeds or alternatively shorten the time between feeds and offer less.
  • Try feeding from just one breast.
  • Or offering both breast with a short break in between sides.
  • For older babies follow the feed with a small amount of solids, this is thought to help to keep the milk down. Younger babies may be able to cope with a small spoonful of thickened milk (formula or breastmilk).
  • If you are breastfeeding you may wish to avoid some foods that may pass through your breastmilk and affect your baby. Some foods that are thought to have some affect on reflux in your baby are dairy products, caffeine, spicy, fatty or acidic foods. You may wish to follow an elimination diet, speak to your doctor for more information.
  • Reflux babies are often more easily distracted during a feed so try to feed in a quiet environment, or a darkened room. You could try feeding your baby while they are still half asleep following their nap.

Sleeping a Baby with Infant Reflux

Many babies with reflux also suffer from a very disrupted sleep pattern. Lack of sleep for both you and your baby can exacerbate the general irritable feelings you experience. Here a few tips for sleep time:

  • Always sleep your baby on their back.
  • Raising one end (head) of the cot may be beneficial in helping your baby sleep. You can do this by placing phone books, rolled up towels or pillows underneath the mattress. If there is no noticeable improvement, there is no need to perservere.
  • Possibly using a dummy at sleep time may offer some relief.

Massage!

Infant massage is a wonderful tool to use for developing a bond between parent and child and has proven benefits for your baby suffering from reflux. Here are some of the benefits to your baby.

  • Relaxes your baby.
  • Helps to develop a bond of trust.
  • Massage can improve your baby’s sleep.
  • Helps to boost the immune system.
  • Improves blood circulation and skin condition.
  • Massage can aid digestion.
  • Massage can also give relief to babies suffering from colic and reflux.

Many hospitals and Birth Centres run courses on infant massage that you can attend during your stay or you can contact the Infant Massage Association to find a qualified instructor near you.

Here are a few tips on the basics of infant massage to get you started.

  • Ensure the room is warm and your baby is not in a draft.
  • Only proceed with the massage if you are feeling relaxed and your baby is generally settled, unless you are performing the massage to help relieve pain.
  • Start on the legs and move upward through the body.
  • Use long firm strokes.
  • Do not place any pressure on the abdomen.
  • When massaging to relieve pain from colic, use a circular motion starting on your baby’s right hand side of her stomach. It is best to seek advice from a qualified instructor prior to commencing this routine to ensure that you apply the correct amount of pressure.
  • Use a moisturizing lotion or a cold pressed almond oil. These are beneficial to your baby’s skin and are easily absorbed.
  • Some aromatherapy oils can be used to assist babies with reflux.
