The effect of psychotherapy on functional medical disorders

You may need medication, physical therapy, surgery, and so on. Psychotherapy can be a vital part of holistic treatment for all patients with medical conditions.


Functional somatic disorders are common and costly, thereby driving the need for the development of effective brief treatment options. many studies showed that  psychotherapy is a valid treatment option for diverse functional somatic disorders conditions resulting in somatic symptom reductions that persist over time. So psychotherapy should be included in functional somatic disorders treatment guidelines.
"The need for innovations in mental health to improve access and quality of care is urgent," said lead author Dr. Paul Kurdyak, Director of Health Outcomes and Performance Evaluation in the Institute for Mental Health Policy Research at CAMH and lead of the Mental Health and Addictions Research Program at ICES. "But increasing the number of specialists who provide psychotherapy alone will not solve the existing problem of poor access to psychotherapy in a publicly-funded system."
Psychotherapy is an evidence-based treatment for conditions like depression and anxiety, two of the most common psychiatric disorders. Treatment guidelines suggest that structured, evidence-based therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) should be a front-line treatment option for patients with mild to moderate depression or anxiety.
"Evidence-based psychotherapy should be available to all patients suffering from the most prevalent mental disorders," said Dr. Kurdyak.

    In my opinion, all people who have functional somatic disorders should use psychotherapy in addition to drug therapy and other medical methods. Psychotherapy, along with medical treatments, makes the treatment process go faster in addition to getting to know themselves better, and in the end, they get a better result.

    Psychotherapy is used to improve a person’s mental health, resolve or reduce problematic behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts or emotions, and improve relationships and social skills. Today, there are also different types of psychotherapy for children and teenagers, such as play therapy.

    Research has shown that these methods are really effective for treating anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, addiction, trauma, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc., and can have the same positive effects on the brain as psychoactive drugs. Therefore, it should be doubted that psychotherapy may work by affecting the function and structure of the brain!

    CBT is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on changing negative thoughts and behaviors that contribute to psychological distress. In the case of FMDs, CBT helps individuals identify and challenge their beliefs about their physical symptoms, which can reduce anxiety and improve functioning.

    CBT is cognitive behavioral therapy
    Cognitive behavioral therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps to first recognize destructive and disturbing thoughts and the impact of negative behaviors on emotions, behavior and behavioral performance, and then treat it. This type of treatment focuses on changing automatic negative thoughts, which have functional emotional problems and lead to negative behavior and in some cases to depression and anxiety and a promise of changing life conditions.
    Negative thoughts about the incurability of addiction is one of these cases. Thoughts such as “It’s getting away” or criminalizing drug use, and…
    If cognitive behavioral therapy only emphasizes individual behavior and does not consider other cognitive factors and focuses on the treatment of behavior and the individual itself, it will suffer from therapeutic reductionism.
    In several articles, Hossam Oranj considered this type of treatment as a cognitive revolution in psychology and mentioned many researches in this field at the US National Institute of Health. He considered this type of therapy to be short-term and compared to the educational use and the extent and diversity in the use of cognitive behavioral therapy in REBT rational-emotional behavior therapy, MBCT presence of mind cognitive therapy, ACT acceptance and commitment therapy, metacognitive therapy MCT, dialectical behavioral therapy DBT. , it teaches multifaceted MMT and…. This type of treatment has also been used in the treatment of physical diseases.

    Professor about the above matter
    I have to tell you that the patient needs to see the doctor first
    The doctor determines whether the patient needs medicine or not.
    Raven Trapp can help the patient with psychotherapy.
    Maybe the patient will recover with medicine or surgery.
    And maybe by injecting peace.

Enjoys them, feeling hopeless, the presence of diseases such as depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress or other disorders require psychotherapy.
