What Happened to Your Huge Cache of Mind-Body Research Archives? Where Did They Go?

12 Mar
 
Actually, they’re still where they’ve always been, but the tab disappeared when we changed web platforms… Sorry!  Our error. They’re coming back, and here’s the link in the meantime….  
 
I’ve heard there are publications regarding improved outcomes from guided imagery and other alternative approaches to health.
 
Can you direct me on how to find the articles?
 
Thank you,

Yes, BNS, you heard right.  We do have hundreds and probably thousands of research archives of abstracts and citations for mind-body studies – on the efficacy of guided imagery, meditation, hypnosis, biofeedback, Reiki, and a variety of SAS (software as service or app) interventions.  
 
We used to have a whole separate tab for them on our website, which somehow got hidden with our new platform.  It’s in the queue to restore its visibility. But in the meantime, here is the link – it’s still there:  http://www.healthjourneys.com/blog/hot-research/index.php/.  Please help yourself.
 
And just as an FYI, we no longer use the term ‘Alternative’ for these approaches…. Nor ‘Complementary & Alternative’ or CAM, either.  Both suggest that these should be used instead of conventional methods, and that’s not the case.  The current and more accurate term has become “Integrative” approaches – conveying the idea that they can be used very easily and compatibly in conjunctionwith traditional medicine. 
 
I hope you can find what you’re looking for in our vast archives.  We will be creating a better search system for them as soon as we can.  
 
All best,
Belleruth
