Apoyo Psicologico

Apoyo psicológico y consejería para pacientes.
 
Para muchos de nuestros pacientes que reciben un diagnóstico de cáncer, puede ser tan devastador para la psiquis como el cáncer lo és para el cuerpo. La conciencia y chequeos anuales han desempeñado y continúan desempeñando papeles esenciales en la prevención, la detección temprana y  avances médicos en el tratamiento.

La información en esta sección tiene el objetivo de ayudarle a sobrellevar los muchos problemas e inquietudes que tienen lugar cuando usted tiene cáncer.

 

El cáncer puede causar una amplia gama de sentimientos. Hay recursos disponibles para ayudarle a entender acerca de la enfermedad y sobre las personas que pueden ayudarle. Sepa que usted cuenta con la ayuda de nuestro equipo.

Según el Instituto Nacional del Cáncer, hasta el 25% de los sobrevivientes de cáncer experimentan síntomas de depresión y hasta el 45% experimentan ansiedad. Muchos también experimentan síntomas que cumplen con los criterios del Trastorno de Estrés Postraumático (TEPT). Lo más preocupante es que los sobrevivientes tienen el doble de probabilidades de suicidarse que la población general.
 
Aunque varía de cada persona, para muchos pacientes de cáncer los efectos psicológicos negativos ni siquiera comienzan hasta que finaliza el tratamiento. Esto es a menudo cuando se establece la angustia y una de las coyunturas más cruciales durante las cuales se debe prestar atención al bienestar emocional del paciente. A pesar de la importancia de contar con apoyo durante el tratamiento, tal vez lo más importante sea un sistema continuo de apoyo sostenible con el que el paciente pueda contar durante la recuperación. Otros pacientes también lo experimentan tan pronto como son diagnosticados.
 
"Los sobrevivientes de cáncer que están deprimidos tienen el doble de probabilidades de morir prematuramente que los que no están deprimidos" – source: Journal of Cancer Survivorship
 
Cualquiera que sea la enfermedad o el diagnóstico que pueda tener un paciente, ser afectado por una condición de salud mental a veces puede hacer que los pacientes se sientan aislados y abrumados, dado que lidiar con las noticias que el paciente recibe son difíciles de manejar, es importante encontrar un sistema de apoyo en el que el paciente pueda confiar. Poder hablar con un amigo de confianza, un miembro de la familia, un grupo de apoyo o un profesional de salud mental proporciona ayuda y alivio en momentos de necesidad.
 
Por otro lado también contamos con apoyo mental para cuidadores, familiares y personas sanas:
Llamamos apoyo mental a lo saludable, volviéndonos conscientes - la práctica de mindfulness.
 
Mindfulness simplemente significa "autoconciencia". Es el proceso de enfocar la mente, el cuerpo y el alma en lo que se siente en el momento, y proporciona al cliente la idea de observar y comprender los sentimientos positivos, negativos e intermedios desde la distancia.
 
Las prácticas de Mindfulness (que sencillamente es el espacio de sentirse presente en el momento) pueden ayudar a aliviar el estrés, mejorar el sueño y reducir el dolor crónico, la presión arterial y los síntomas de enfermedad cardíaca. También tiene el poder de cambiar la forma en que funciona tu cerebro. Los estudios han encontrado que actividades como la meditación y el yoga aumentan la cantidad de conexiones de señalización en el cerebro y proporcionan un mejor control sobre el procesamiento del dolor y las emociones.
 
La salud mental es parte de la salud general. Al igual que no podemos estar bien sin una buena salud mental, no podemos estar sanos si descuidamos el resto de nuestro cuerpo. Cuando se trata de una condición de salud mental, puede ser fácil caer en la rutina, depender únicamente de la medicación o la terapia para curar y olvidarse de cuidar bien nuestro cuerpo. Sin embargo, prestar atención a las elecciones de estilo de vida también es importante para la recuperación, así tenemos una variedad de proveedores que ofrecen servicios preventivos y de bienestar desde exámenes físicos completos hasta yoga, crioterapia, masajes, tratamientos faciales, etc. Haga clic en: Healthy Concierge Services.

Seleccionamos personalmente a nuestros proveedores para este servicio y ofrecen consultas y sesiones a través del teléfono, Skype y FaceTime. Sin embargo, si tiene una preferencia para una sesión en persona o una solicitud especial, háganoslo saber y lo acomodaremos.

El cuidado saludable y preventivo

La definición holística de salud y bienestar es mirar la salud y el estilo de vida de un individuo considerando los cuatro factores, físicos, intelectuales, emocionales y sociales. Se enfoca en todo el cuerpo y la mente, no solo en una parte del cuerpo y los síntomas del problema. Se examinará el estilo de vida del individuo, como las deficiencias nutricionales, las causas del estrés y por qué hay una falta de buena salud y bienestar. Creemos que el comienzo de la evaluación de nuestro bienestar comienza con los servicios integrales de bienestar físico.
 
Los servicios de salud y bienestar incluyen: crioterapia, masajes, yoga, fisioterapia, gimnasio y acondicionamiento físico, terapia de cromo (color), terapia de sauna, servicios de quiropráctica, acupuntura, terapia de ventosas, cuidado facial / de la piel... ¡y más servicios!

Stress Management


We work with this provider who has scientific-based methods for evaluating and treatment of stress. "Stress is not a mental illness. But, mental illnesses can cause stress and it also goes the other way around where stress can cause mental illnesses." says Dr. James Mills. Dr. Mills is focused on revolutionising how people and especially the medical fraternity think of stress. "Stress is a defence mechanism, just like the skin and other organs. My mission is to educate people on stress and its related illnesses," Mills explains. His interest in stress began when he was in medical school and has not faded since. Wherever he went across the world, he had to find a bookstore to get a book that would increase his knowledge on stress. "The fact that I studied physiology further increased my interest in stress. Physiology along with medicine and surgery also widened my scope on stress by helping me to analyse things critically. Also, even while I was teaching at the UWI, I was teaching subjects that were about stress," Mills said. Mills is a fellow of the American Institute of Stress. In 2016 he established Global Stress Solutions, a facility that seeks to help people identify their stress source and solve their stress related problems. He is the only known person throughout the world to measure stress. Yes, with technological instruments he can measure your stress levels in the same way you can measure your body temperature. His wealth of knowledge on stress coupled with his mission to educate the public about stress led him to write The Scientific Principles of Stress, in 2012. This book became a best-seller on Amazon and made the New York Times Bestseller list. He believes that despite all the beliefs people have about stress, there is an underlying fact that all should understand.

Stress Management


We work with this provider who has scientific-based methods for evaluating and treatment of stress. "Stress is not a mental illness. But, mental illnesses can cause stress and it also goes the other way around where stress can cause mental illnesses." says Dr. James Mills. Dr. Mills is focused on revolutionising how people and especially the medical fraternity think of stress. "Stress is a defence mechanism, just like the skin and other organs. My mission is to educate people on stress and its related illnesses," Mills explains. His interest in stress began when he was in medical school and has not faded since. Wherever he went across the world, he had to find a bookstore to get a book that would increase his knowledge on stress. "The fact that I studied physiology further increased my interest in stress. Physiology along with medicine and surgery also widened my scope on stress by helping me to analyse things critically. Also, even while I was teaching at the UWI, I was teaching subjects that were about stress," Mills said. Mills is a fellow of the American Institute of Stress. In 2016 he established Global Stress Solutions, a facility that seeks to help people identify their stress source and solve their stress related problems. He is the only known person throughout the world to measure stress. Yes, with technological instruments he can measure your stress levels in the same way you can measure your body temperature. His wealth of knowledge on stress coupled with his mission to educate the public about stress led him to write The Scientific Principles of Stress, in 2012. This book became a best-seller on Amazon and made the New York Times Bestseller list. He believes that despite all the beliefs people have about stress, there is an underlying fact that all should understand.
