Wen Dan Tang helpful in schizophrenia

The Chinese herbal formula Wen Dan Tang (WDT) may be helpful for people with schizophrenia, according to a Cochrane Database systematic review by Chinese authors who analysed 15 randomised trials involving 1437 participants.

WDT was found to be non-inferior to antipsychotic drugs (such as chlorpromazine or risperidone) for global outcomes and mental state, and was associated with fewer side-effects. When WDT was combined with a low dose of antipsychotic medication, positive effects on...

Ohrakupunktur bei Schlafstörungen

Kleine Nadeln, große Wirkung: Eine Insomnie ist dann behandlungsbedürftig, wenn neben dem gestörten Nachtschlaf das Befinden am Tag stark beeinträchtigt ist. Da schlaffördernde, chemische Substanzen schnell abhängig machen können, sind Alternativen wie die Ohrakupunktur gefragt.

Burnout: Starkes Nervenkostüm durch Rosenwurz

Wie eine dreimonatige Behandlung mit Rhodiola rosea-Extrakt das Stressempfinden, die krankheitsspezifischen Beschwerden und die psychosoziale Situation von Patienten mit stressbedingtem Burnout-Syndrom verbessern kann, zeigt eine vorläufige, explorative Studie.

Bei vielen Arbeitnehmern verursacht diese zunehmende Arbeitsbelastung kontinuierlichen psychischen Stress aufgrund chronischer Überforderung. Typische Symptome eines Burnout äußern sich in starken Erschöpfungszuständen, Depression, Angst und Schlafstörungen, die in körperlichen Leiden wie Rücken-, Magen- oder Kopfschmerz bis zum Herzinfarkt resultieren...
