A top-secret spy agency recruits an uncouth but promising street kid into its highly competitive training program, just as a twisted technological genius threatens the world. Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L. Many studies have showed that eliciting the relaxation response - a physiologic state of deep rest induced by practices such as meditation, yoga and prayer - not only relieves feelings of stress and anxiety but also affects physiologic factors such as blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen consumption.
The relaxation response was first described more than 40 years ago by Herbert Benson, MD, founder and director emeritus of the BHI and a co-author of the current study. In order to analyze the potential impact of mind body interventions like the relaxation response on the utilization of health care services, the researchers examined information available through the Research Patient Data Registry (RPDR) of Partners HealthCare, a system incorporating MGH, Brigham and Women's Hospital and other Boston-area facilities. Data regarding more than 4,400 3RP participants' use of Partners system services in the years before and after their participation was compared with information from a demographically matched control group of almost 13,150 Partners patients over a similar two-year period. Based on the number of health-care encounters in the studied period - which included interactions health care providers in any setting, imaging studies, lab tests and procedures - the 3RP participants had an average reduction of 43 percent in their use of health care services in the year after their participation. Stahl notes that the results of this investigation need to be validated by a prospective study that would also explore where and when best to use mind body interventions like the Benson-Henry Relaxation Response Resiliency Program.
Benson adds, "From the outset, our primary goal has been to enhance the health and well being of people by counteracting the harmful effects of stress and alleviating the many diseases that are caused or exacerbated by stress. Amid reports that rank today's teens as the most stressed generation in the country, a new study offers hope for helping them effectively manage stress and build long-term resiliency. People with more friends have higher pain tolerance, Oxford University researchers have found.

An international evidence review has found that certain nutritional supplements can increase the effectiveness of antidepressants for people with clinical depression. Mental agility can be boosted by even a short period of learning a language, a study suggests.
The German model is instead adding another film credit to her resume by working as an executive producer on her director husband Matthew Vaughn's latest film, "The Secret Service." In addition to that role, Schiffer will also oversee the cast's wardrobe, hair, makeup and interiors, British Vogue reported. The movie, which is based on the comic book of the same name, is about a group of spies who use a gentleman's tailor as their front. In other news about the model-turned-actress, in a recent interview, Schiffer discussed the fashion of the 1990s and what today's fashion is missing.

Now a study from the Institute for Technology Assessment and the Benson-Henry Institute (BHI) for Mind Body Medicine - both at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) - finds that individuals participating in a relaxation-response-focused training program used fewer health care services in the year after their participation than in the preceding year.
The physiologic opposite of the well-documented fight-or-flight response, the relaxation response is elicited by practices including meditation, deep breathing and prayer and has been shown to be helpful in the treatment of stress-related disorders ranging from anxiety to hypertension. Through the RPDR - which provides de-identified information on clinical services provided within the Partners system - the research team gathered data on individuals participating in the BHI Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (3RP) from 2006 to 2014.
The control group had an overall but not statistically significant increase in service utilization in the second year. Jackson will star in the film, and other big-named celebrities, including David Beckham, Elton John, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Adele are also rumored to have roles.

The model has also worked as executive producer on another one of her husband's films, "Kick Ass 2," in addition to acting in films including "Love Actually," "Ritchie Rich" and "Zoolander," a movie in which she portrayed herself.

The paper's authors note that stress-related illnesses such as anxiety and depression are the third highest causes of health expenditures in the U.S.
The program combines elicitation of the relaxation response with social support, cognitive skills training and positive psychology designed to build resiliency.
The utilization-matched 3RP subgroup had a reduction of around 25 percent across all clinical services. From a public health perspective, it is better to be prepared to offer these tools to people in their customary settings than to wait for them to seek out these interventions. Clinical areas in which 3RP participation was associated with the greatest reduction in service utilization were neurologic, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal.
The investigators estimate that the price of participating in programs like 3RP would be made up in costs savings in a matter of four to six months or less.
