Biopsychosoc Med 2020 24;14. Epub 2020 Feb 24.

1Department of Behavioral Medicine, National Institute of Mental Health, National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, 4-1-1 Ogawa-Higashi, Kodaira, Tokyo, 187-8553 Japan.

Background: The effectiveness of psychotherapeutic interventions for eating disorders (EDs) is widely studied in Europe, North America, and Australia/New Zealand.

The longitudinal effects of seated isometric yoga on blood biomarkers, autonomic functions, and psychological parameters of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome: a pilot study.

Biopsychosoc Med 2019 5;13:28. Epub 2019 Nov 5.

2Department of Psychosomatic Medicine, International University of Health and Welfare Hospital, Iguchi 537-3, Nasushiobara-shi, Tochigi-ken, 329-2763 Japan.

Background: In a previous randomized controlled trial, we found that practicing seated isometric yoga regularly for 2 months improved the fatigue of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) who are resistant to conventional therapy. The aim of this pilot study was to investigate the possible mechanisms behind this finding by comparing blood biomarkers, autonomic nervous function, and psychological indices before versus after an intervention period of seated isometric yoga practice.

Methods: Fifteen patients with CFS who did not show satisfactory improvements after at least 6 months of conventional therapy practiced seated isometric yoga (biweekly 20-min sessions with a yoga instructor and daily practice at home) for 2 months. Read More

Division of Psychosomatic Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, St. Luke's International Hospital, 9-1, Akashi-cho, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, 104-8560 Japan.

Background: Although in vitro studies show that iron absorption can be inhibited by magnesium laxatives such as magnesium oxide, taking oral iron supplements with magnesium laxatives is not considered a clinical problem.

Case Presentation: A 28-year-old woman diagnosed with anorexia nervosa who overused magnesium laxatives was admitted to our hospital to evaluate her refractory iron deficiency anemia (IDA), despite having taken oral iron replacement therapy for nine months. She had had amenorrhea for years and her fecal occult blood tests were negative. Read More

Department of Psychosomatic Medicine, School of Medicine, International University of Health and Welfare, 4-3, Kozunomori, Narita-shi, Chiba-ken 286-8686 Japan.

To clarify the possible roles of board game use in psychosomatic medicine, the present review evaluated studies that investigated the effects of this activity on health education and treatment. A literature search conducted between January 2012 and August 2018 identified 83 relevant articles; 56 (67%) targeted education or training for health-related problems, six (7%) examined basic brain mechanisms, five (6%) evaluated preventative measures for dementia or contributions to healthy aging, and three (4%) assessed social communication or public health policies.

Bio-psychosocial factors of children and adolescents with internet gaming disorder: a systematic review.

Biopsychosoc Med 2019 14;13. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

4Faculty of Medicine, Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, Shimane University, 89-1 Enya-cho, Izumo-shi, Shimane 693-8501 Japan.

Previous large-scale studies suggest that internet gaming disorder (IGD) among children and adolescents has become an important public concern. Minors are known to be particularly susceptible to problematic internet gaming use owing to age-related underdevelopment of cognitive control. It has been shown that precursors of addictions appear during adolescence; therefore, prevention efforts must be established targeting minors who have their first experience with addictive substances and behaviors during pubescence.

Current management strategies for the pain of elderly patients with burning mouth syndrome: a critical review.

Biopsychosoc Med 2019 31;13. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

1Department of Psychosomatic Dentistry, Graduate School of Medical and Dental sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, 1-5-45 Yushima, Bunkyo, Tokyo, 113-8549 Japan.

Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS), a chronic intraoral burning sensation or dysesthesia without clinically evident causes, is one of the most common medically unexplained oral symptoms/syndromes. Even though the clinical features of BMS have been astonishingly common and consistent throughout the world for hundreds of years, BMS remains an enigma and has evolved to more intractable condition. In fact, there is a large and growing number of elderly BMS patients for whom the disease is accompanied by systemic diseases, in addition to aging physical change, which makes the diagnosis and treatment of BMS more difficult.

Exaggerated envy and guilt measured by economic games in Japanese women with anorexia nervosa.

Biopsychosoc Med 2018 6;12:19. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

1Department of Psychiatry, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University, 54 Shogoin-Kawahara-cho, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto, 606-8507 Japan.

Background: Anorexia nervosa (AN) patients are assumed to express high levels of guilt and envy.
