How to overcome from fear?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
How to overcome from fear?
Try gradual desensitization. Oftentimes we're afraid of something because we haven't been exposed to it very much" fear of the unknown" is a commonly used phrase to describe the automatic aversion people feel to something that's different. If you're afraid of something because it's a mystery, try exposing yourself to it in small doses until you gain a better understanding and your fear begins to dissipate. If you're afraid of spiders, start by looking at a badly drawn doodle of a spider done in silly colors. When you can look at that cartoon and control your reaction, move up to photos of spiders. Then try cleaning up dead spiders. As you gain confidence working through each stage of proving to yourself that you can control your phobia, it will diminish until you no longer feel it as anything but a twinge in the most extreme circumstances. If you're afraid of something less concrete, like change, start by slightly changing up your daily routine. Add a morning run every other day, or take the bus instead of driving to work. You'll begin to see that you're capable of handling what life throws at you, and the confidence you'll build will help you deal with bigger life changes.

Mr.Manuel,Its not at all a problem.. but just its an attitude.. Everybody will have their own individual peculiarities..No two people are alike.Just like that u also. But, U can try gradually on ur own. If any inhibitions u have to mingle like looking wise/ht wise/wt wise... just ignore it.Here ur big asset& +point u have is good in studies.. which can help u to build confidence levels in u to mingle with others.. to keep u at high place in group.So, keep proceed in that way in curricular activities... Try to explain if anybody has any doubts.. related subjects wise.. which will make u good among others& make u feel confident.

Homeopathy Medicine After a Concussion

MD - Homeopathy, Masters Degree of Homoeopathy
Homeopath, Mumbai
Homeopathy Medicine After a Concussion

Head injuries occur due to a variety of injuries - road accidents, falls, sports, assaults, etc.  While some injuries might be obvious, others may not have an external injury. However, given the structure and vascularity of the brain, there could be definite damage to the blood flow and brain function. There would be alteration in the person's behavior which may seem weird to others. A detailed history and examination will help unearth these symptoms and the underlying causes and thereby manage them. Any of the above injuries can result in jarring of the brain, and especially in cases of children, it is advisable to immediately consult a doctor.  If it was a very minor injury, then any of the following symptoms should warrant a visit to the doctor.

  1. Worsening headache 
  2. Nausea 
  3. Vomiting
  4. Dizziness 
  5. Difficulty waking up from sleep 
  6. Irritability and confusion 
  7. Unequal pupil size or dilated pupils
  8. Confused about name or place of belonging
  9. Unclear speech
  10. Numbness in the legs or arms 

As with all other conditions, homeopathy believes in getting to the root of the issue and not just treating the symptoms. There have been cases reported where the patient had severe symptoms, was given homeopathic remedies with complete cure of symptoms.  There are specific remedies in the acute phase and the chronic phase. In acute phase, commonly given remedies in the acute phase include Aconite, Arnica, and opium. They are aimed at stimulating recovery and should be given immediately after the injury has happened.

  1. Aconite:  Used when the patient is restless and panicky with the fear of death.
  2. Opium: These may have injuries elsewhere but not on the head, may feel dazed or be in coma, could also have a bloated face.
  3. Arnica: If the patient is severely bruised, however is denying help and claims to feel well, then Arnica should be given

In chronic phase these remedies help in managing the long term implications of a concussion that sets in sometimes even after months.

  1. Natrum sulphuricum: The person here is usually depressed and irritable, suicidal in some cases, have a feeling of ringing in the ears, experience vertigo.  The symptoms are worsened in wet or damp conditions.
  2. Natrum muriaticum: The person becomes sad or withdrawn, have a chronic headache that is worsened when out in the sun and develop a dislike for salt.  Being at the seaside can make these symptoms to improve or worsen dramatically. 
  3. Hypericum: The person will have convulsions immediately after the injury and can complain of pins and needles sensation later on.
  4. Helleborus:  The person seems shut down since the injury has happened with indifference to pain or pleasure.
  5. Hyoscymus:  The person becomes talkative, excited, laughs inappropriately, and in rare cases, muscle spasms or even epilepsy.

Is Your Child Under Stress?

BHMS, C.S.D.(Skin Diseases), M.D.(Medicine), M.Sc. in Counselling and Psychotherapy
Homeopath,
Is Your Child Under Stress?

Is your child irritable? Not eating well or under performing at school?

Relax! Losing your mind and temper won't help. 

There are chances that your child is under stress and needs your support during this testing time. Let's gain better understanding of the problem as a mature step towards positive parenting.

Stress, either intrinsic or extrinsic, can affect your child as easily as it may affect you. There are several causes as to why your child may also be stress-laden even at such a tender age. As pre-schoolers, the major cause for stress stems from anxiety of leaving their parents and spending long hours in an external environment. As a child grows up, further causes of stress may include:

  1. Overwhelming schedule due to large number of academic and extra-curricular activities
  2. High expectations of parents and pressure to perform
  3. Lifestyle or status associated peer-pressure
  4. Conflict between parents / domestic violence / Divorce of parents
  5. Moving to new town or city
  6. Serious illness
  7. Physiological changes during puberty
  8. Worry about getting along with friends

Warning signals that your child is under stress:

  1. Aggression: Children are prone to a high number of aggressive outbursts as they are not as much in control of their emotions as adults are. They may often react with physical aggression (biting, kicking, or hitting) or verbal aggression (screaming or abusing). This can, however, be curbed in a number of ways such as setting firm and consistent limits, and avoiding instilling in them the idea of 'toughness'.
  2. Bed wetting: Though stress and anxiety may not be essential causes that lead to the advent of bedwetting in children, it often accentuates the same. You should reassure your child that you are not angry when he/she has an accident and see the doctor to rule out any other medical causes.
  3. Hyperactive behavior: When children can't handle stress, they release negative energy. Having temper tantrums, running away, or constantly being disobedient are ways to alert adults that there is a problem. Help your child burn off energy in a positive, calming way. Deep breathing exercises, listening to soothing music, stretching, or yoga help.
  4. Withdrawal: Social withdrawal and being frequently moody or irritable can often arise from high levels of stress, social fear and anxiety in children. Offer plenty of positive attention and speak to your child's teacher if you suspect he/she is having trouble with friends at school.
  5. Eating and sleeping disorders: If your child is sleeping less or sleeping more than usual, then it might be an indication that something is not right with your child. Likewise, if there is any change in eating pattern which you find abnormal, then it indicates trouble. This may often stem from stress or anxiety-related issues and hamper the proper growth and nutrient intake in a growing child.

How you can you help your child?  

There are several things you can do to help your child work through his/her problems when it comes to combating stress and anxiety. These include: 

  1. Have friendly relation with kids so that they feel free to share their problems/ feelings. Kids generally hide things out of fear. Motivate them to express and share their worries. 
  2. Try to understand the cause of the stress. Talk about their fears and apprehensions. Make them feel they are understood. 
  3. Do not force them to sleep or eat. Encourage to eat well and sleep in time.
  4. The child should be encouraged to indulge in some physical activities like walk/ jog/sports and relaxation exercises like deep breathing/meditation 
  5. Avoid burdening them with studies and co-curricula activities. Identify their abilities and interest and respect individual limitations. Don't burden them with your expectations. 
  6. There should be sufficient breaks in between studies for rejuvenation. It motivates and enhances productivity.
  7. Avoid demeaning/insulting remarks. Avoid comparisons with other kids.
  8. Avoid negative reactions like scolding/sarcasm/shouting/beating. Teach the child appropriate ways of managing emotions like open communication, sharing state of mind with peers and parents and appropriate anger management techniques.
  9. You should also talk to teachers and peers if you suspect any problem at school and find a solution through their help.
  10. Teach the child about time management. Let them know how to prioritize work according to importance and urgency of task.

Relationship is between two individuals, who are different in there mental make-up and different demands from a relationship. May be your friend is airy and mercurial in nature who is restless and looking for change all the time. And you demand more stability, are more possessive and want more of his attention with your smaller social circle than him. Neither he will change nor you, can a middle ground be found. You must consider this before entering a formal relationship!

Muscle aches often respond well to home treatment. Some measures you can take to ease any muscle discomfort from injuries and overuse include: resting the area of the body where you are experiencing aches and pains taking an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen applying ice to the affected area to help relieve pain and ease inflammation.

You are going to feel isolated like this for some time as one always keeps comparing delhi with bombay. Once you realise that apples cant be compared with oranges, your issue would start resolving. Also in mumbai one has to take an initiative in introducing ourselves to people and then you would surely get the returns.
