How To Stop Worrying And Start Living
How To Stop Worrying And Start Living

Worrying slows you down and only makes you dumb. It takes away your usual smartness and leaves you with lot of unwanted negativity. Besides, it makes your look older and your hair whiter! However, it is not easy to stop worrying as we worry about everything and for everyone. What we don't realise is that worrying has seldom achieved anything.

Here few things you can do to keep worrying at bay.

1. Postpone your worries to a specific time of the day - There is no point in worrying about something all day long. Not only does it affect your other work, it also affects your mind. Having said that, worrying can be helpful too. One might find a great solution, just with a little bit of pondering over the topic. So don't shun the worry, instead set aside a time to think about what is worrying you. Not only will it not gnaw on you mind all day, but you too can give it a constructive time when your mind is free of other preoccupations.

2. Use here and now techniques - Always try to remind yourself of what you should do “in this place”, “ at this time”, and focus on the activity or task you need to complete at that hour of the day.

3. Question your act of worrying - Evaluate the amount of time spend on worrying, how worrying is going to help you, how it can solve your problems or for that matter, the problems of others and in what better ways you could have spent the same time.

4. Relax yourself - Worrying can cause anxiety and tension which maintains the preoccupation and blocks the rational thinking process. So relax yourself. Use some systematic relaxation techniques or spend some time on any entertaining activity which relaxes you. Even having a casual chat or coffee along with your friend can be helpful.

5. Identify your negative thoughts - Try to identify the negative thoughts that arise in you which maintains the intensity of your worries. Challenge these negative thoughts and try to replace it with thoughts of hope and success

6. Develop problem solving skills: try to put your worries into a statement which describes the real core problem, brainstorm to find all the available solutions. Try to analyze the available solutions and choose the one that suits you the best. Start the solution at the earliest.

7. Develop acceptance - Many issues which you worry about may be the ones which are not in your control or even sometimes not your problem at all. Develop the tendency to accept that all issues will not be under your control at all times.

8. Prepare yourself to Wait - In case of worries about issues where uncertainty prevail, prepare yourself to wait till a concrete status I arrived at just like waiting for examination results.

9. Develop trust worthy friends - Good and trustworthy friends can help you in distracting your thoughts from the preoccupation with your worries and sometimes even provide effective solutions to the problems. Just sharing your worries with your friends may by itself give you some relief. Be careful not to engage with friend who would further add on to your confusion.

10. Seek help - if you feel that you are finding it difficult to come out of this vicious circle of worrying, don’t hesitate to meet a professional who can help you the resolve the problem

1. Its best to try naturally. If you can't, then meds may be required. Try to have sex between 10th to 19th days of cycle. This is the fertile period. 2. Yes you can try in September also. For good eggs & sperm, both partners should have healthy & balanced lifestyle, not just the female. Folic acid is to be taken couple of months before conception. No other drugs are mandatory.

Postnatal Care - Ayurvedic Medicines For It!

Postnatal Care - Ayurvedic Medicines For It!

For a mother, the first few months after delivery are crucial since the uterus after expanding due to delivery, shrinks back to its normal size. Moreover the tendons, ligaments and muscles connected to the uterus begin to regain the power and strength lost during labor. A lot of emphasis is put on postnatal care in Ayurveda.

Ayurveda suggested diet tips:
According to your digestive system, you must take Sesame oil i.e. Til oil and ghee i.e. clarified butter after mixing it with panchkola. Once this mixture has been digested, you must consume rice gruel and milk that is medicated with Vidharigandhadi gana or panchkola. Apart from these, you must consume jaggery water for about a week. After a week, you must eat foods that are easily digestible to help you regain your strength.

Do's and Don'ts: 
1. Do massage yourself with Vatahara Oil
2. Do bathe with warm water
3. Do keep your perineum and breasts clean
4. Do urinate every 5 hours
5. Do breastfeed properly
6. Don't consume food irregularly
7. Don't have stale or cold food
8. Don't retain urine or feces
9. Don't indulge in sex or exercise

Ayurvedic medicines and herbs:
All the medicines and herbs mentioned below are never advised together. An ayurvedic specialist will usually give you a combination of a few medicines depending on your symptoms and condition.
1. Dashamoolarishtam: Dashamoolarishtam is extremely effective in boosting your immunity and keeping infections at bay. It is usually prescribed for the first few months as it also helps reduce inflammation and pain.
2. Jeerakarishtam: Jeerakarishtam is well known for inducing normal lactation, and is usually prescribed to mothers during the monsoon or winter seasons. This is because it keeps the body warm owing to its hot nature.
3. Shatavari Gulam: Improve lactation and achieve overall hormonal balance by consuming Shatavari Gulam.
4. Pulileham: Pulileham is administered to new mothers from the third week onwards for about a month and half.
5. Shatavari: Shatavari herb is mixed with boiling milk to improve the production of breast milk and avoid post partum depression. It is also useful for normal involution of the uterus.
6. Musta: Apart from improving breast milk production, musta herbs also relieves clogs in milk ducts and inflammation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

I am 25 years old female . I have a long lasting problem of irregular menstruation since after my puberty . Initially when I bleed it was going ok for almost a year after that a pause of 5 or 6 months occurred then it bleed so everyone even my mom said its normal it happens being at an early stage of life . Who knew that it will take a disastrous phase as such. After that the problem started irregular menses sometimes a gap of 7 or 8 months occur and it never bleed until I take medicine or go to a doctor . It is a girl like me that I have been going under continuous treatment since then but still my problem is the same. In the starting I temporarily took a homeopathic treatment but the doctor said that this is a hormonal problem and it can not be cured but he prescribed me some medicine to let it bleed. After that I went to homeopathic doctor and spent there some 5 to 6 months but wasn't satisfied. After that I went for a bigger homeopathic doctor, this time I was 16 years of age and there I had a long treatment of about 5 years. Here also my problem was not cured completely , every time when I take medicine tgen only it bleeds and sometimes even after having medicines it got irregular then the doctor changes the medicine and then I bleed. There also sometimes a long gap of 5 to 6 months happened somehow and I got so disappointed. However I continued my treatment and after sometime I got through a Unani Hakim and tried tp give it a chance. He assured me that cases like this used to come to me and he had solved each and every case. I got some hope and started treatment there. His medicines were quite costly but I did not give up. And I sticked there for almost 3 years. His medicines were quite effective but my problem was like what to say. I gave up my treatment there and somehow there developed a feeling inside me that there is no doctor in this world who can cure me I will have to rely on medicines for a vast phase of my life. After that I again went to halopathy, this time a bigger doctor he asked to have some test and USG of lower abdomen. Then after going through the reports he told me that there are cyst inside there and that is the reason for the irregular menstruation. Anyhow he again told me the same thing there is no particular medicine for it you need to exercise, lose weight and have light diet etc. After that I heard of a very nice homeopathic doctor and he is an expert in solving critical cases. Now I have decided that whatever happens this will be my final doctor whether good or bad I will stick to him and now I am undergoing his treatment since 1 and a half year. His medicines are effective and he somehow assures me that tbe problem will be solved definitely but now after seeing such complications I doubt this line but anyways keeping an optimistic approach towards life, hoping to get well soon. By the way if you have any solution to my problem then do send me the details. Thank you.

It appears you have a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome. It is very important to reduce weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle to get a good response to medicines. Medicines need to be continued till your weight can be optimised. Equally important is for you to remain positive and do as per doctor's advise.

6 Fantastic Health Benefits of Apples

6 Fantastic Health Benefits of Apples

History and diversity of apples is not the only thing to celebrate. Apples also can be credited with delivering an amazing number of health benefits, such as:

1. Fighting bad breath. Apples contain pectin, which helps control food odors. Pectin also promotes saliva, which cleanses breath.

2. Preventing asthma attacks. Asthma sufferers often have low levels of antioxidants. Apples are high in vitamin C and flavonoids (beneficial, water-soluble plant pigments). Both are antioxidant. One study found that vitamin C supplements helped protect against exercise-induced asthma.

3. Reducing the risk of stroke. A study involving 9,208 men and women showed that those who ate the most apples over a 28-year period had the lowest risk for stroke. Researchers concluded that the results suggest the intake of apples is related to a decreased risk of thrombotic stroke.

4. Preventing constipation. Fresh apples are high in fiber, which adds bulk to the stool. Apples contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, or roughage.

5. Combating fatigue. The high vitamin C and antioxidant content in apples counter the free radicals leading to oxidative stress, which has been linked to fatigue.

6. Reducing the risk of diabetes. The phytonutrients (beneficial substances found in various plants) in apples help regulate blood sugar.These compounds help prevent spikes in blood sugar in a variety of ways: by inhibiting enzymes involved in the breakdown of carbohydrates into simple sugars; by stimulating pancreatic cells to produce insulin; by decreasing the absorption of sugars into the bloodstream.

Hello lybrate-user, facial hair and irregular menses both point towards poly cystic ovarian disease (pcod) however the confirm diagnosis can be made after a ultrasound examination and blood test. You need to undergo a sonography of your abdomen and pelvis and blood test for your hormonal levels. Depending on your reports, the most appropriate treatment can be given to you.

Hi lybrate-user If the periods are delayed just by 4 days then you need to wait more for 5- 6 days. It is not necessary that you will get pregnant. As there are alot of other reasons of delayed menses such as stress, hormonal imbalance. After 5-6 days if it has still not comes then take a pregnancy test. The result will tell you. Till then do not stress upon it. Takecare.

Anxiety And Depression

M.B.B.S,C.C.A,D.C.A,AASECT,FPA,AAD,M.I.M.S
General Physician, Gorakhpur
Anxiety And Depression

Anxiety and depression affects countless people around the world, some in more serious ways than others. Using essential oils for anxiety and depression has been a part of human culture for thousands of years, and remains a popular treatment to this day.

While stress is a natural part of life, and can often help our bodies prepare for different situations, anxiety can often become pervasive, changing your outlook on life. Stress and anxiety can increase inflammation, put strain on the immune system, and lead to oxidative stress and chronic disease. It can also negatively impact the stability of your personal, emotional, professional and social lives. And depression can cause you to lose interest in beloved activities, have poor sleeping habits, lose weight, and disengage from the outside world.

While many people think of anxiety as being a result of worry in our lives, it can also be caused by environmental factors, genetics, chemical changes in the brain and medical side effects. Similarly, depression is characterized by major changes in hormone and chemical levels in the brain and body, in conjunction with life events, grief, medical conditions and genetics. Using essential oils for anxiety and depression can help to alter that brain chemistry, promote the balance of hormones, and improve overall mood and attitude, thanks to their sedative, soothing, stimulating, energizing and detoxifying properties.

Best essential oils for anxiety and depression

Some of the most popular essential oils for anxiety and depression include rose, vetiver, ylang ylang, lavender, bergamot, basil, lemon, frankincense, chamomile, patchouli, clary sage, jasmine, peppermint, valerian root and geranium oils, among others.

Frankincense oil

This powerful essential oil is often used in aromatherapy practices for improving meditation and clearing the mind of anxiety and worry. It also helps to lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate, which can provide a feeling of calm during an anxiety attack.

How to use - Topically apply a few drops of this oil to the back of your neck, or mix this oil into a room diffuser or aromatherapy machine.

Valerian root oil

One of the common side effects of anxiety is tension in the stomach, cramping and indigestion. Valerian root oil can not only improve your mental state, but also soothe the stomach and stop the cycle of anxiety in its tracks. It is also a sedative, which can help with any symptoms of insomnia you may be experiencing as a result of anxiety.

How to use – external use of this oil is quite popular, particularly for sprinkling on the pillow before you go to sleep, allowing you to inhale the aromatic compounds all night.

Chamomile oil

To instill a sense of calmness in the body and mind, many people turn to chamomile oil, as it can settle feelings of restlessness that often accompany depression. This oil can elevate your mood, simply by inhaling it, and will also reduce sleeplessness, another common side effect of depression.

How to use – you can inhale chamomile oil straight from the bottle to soothe your nervous system, or you can add a few drops to a room diffuser.

Lemon oil

The active components of lemon oil have been directly connected to a boost to cognitive energy. When you are in the throes of an anxiety or depressive episode, this oil can clear away the mental fog, giving your purpose and clarity, and boosting mood by increasing energy levels in the body through elevated circulation.

How to use – you can mix a few drops of lemon oil in a glass of warm water to induce a sense of focused calm, or you can add the lemon oil to your bathwater and re-set your mood.

Basil oil

This is one of the most versatile essential oils for anxiety and depression, as it can reduce inflammation in the body, stimulate the immune system, boost energy, lower blood pressure and reduce feelings of fatigue or despondency. For someone suffering from anxiety-induced depression, basil oil is a comprehensive remedy for all related symptoms.

How to use – adding a few drops of this oil to a pot of steaming water and then breathing in deeply can deliver the powerful aromatic compounds directly to the parts of your brain that need them. Using this oil in a room diffuser is also effective.

Vetiver oil

This powerful natural oil is not the most common, but it does interact directly with the central nervous system as a tonic, helping to regulate nervous system function, reducing panic and hypersensitivity. This is crucial for people suffering from chronic anxiety.

How to use – this oil is often combined with rose or lavender oil and then applied to the wrists, just a few drops on each. This can let the oil quickly enter your bloodstream and provide a pleasant, uplifting smell all day.

Rsoe oil

This popular oil has a number of stimulating properties, capable of elevating blood pressure, increasing mood and balancing hormone levels in the body. This can rapidly impact feelings of depression, while also countering anxiety by releasing dopamine and serotonin into the bloodstream.

How to use – this oil is popular in aromatherapy and room diffusers, as a few inhalations can start to boost energy levels. You can also apply a few drops to the back of your neck or wrists.

Lavender oil

With its sedative and soothing qualities, lavender oil can help to lower blood pressure and moderate symptoms of anxiety, while also regulating hormones to reduce mood swings and periods of depression. Lavender also has anti-inflammatory properties when inhaled, which can reduce pain and chronic discomfort, which often leads to long-term anxiety.

How to use – putting a few drops of lavender oil on your pillow can induce sound sleep and leave you feeling rested in the morning, with a positive attitude and balanced hormones.

Patchouli oil

Research has shown that the aromatic compounds in patchouli oil are able to stimulate the release of dopamine and serotonin, which can quickly flood the body and replace feelings of sadness or despondency with hope and happiness. The sedative and analgesic properties can also promote healthy, pain-free sleep, which can further help avoid depressive episodes.

How to use – the pleasant, unmistakeable aroma of patchouli oil makes it a favorite for room diffusers, as it can help to keep your mood elevated and optimistic all day. Applying a few drops to the back of the neck is also a popular remedy.

Ylang ylang oil

Studies have shown that ylang ylang oil can reduce blood pressure and slow the release of adrenaline within the body, helping it counter panic attacks and reduce overall stress hormones in the body. It also has sedative properties that can aid sleep disorders and insomnia, which are common side effects of depression.

How to use – topically applying a combination of ylang ylang oil and a carrier oil (coconut or almond) to your skin as a massage oil or chest rub is an excellent way to deliver the active ingredients and see rapid results.

Bergamot oil

This oil can stimulate blood flow and circulation, and some of its active ingredients are even used in antidepressant medications. It is commonly praised for being able to clear the mind, invigorate the senses and provide relaxation for an overactive nervous system, in the case of anxiety.

How to use – you can add this oil to a room diffuser or topically apply it to the neck, stomach, hands or feet, where it can be readily absorbed.

Jasmine oil

This is a highly valued oil for its ability to regulate the central nervous system and balance hormone production. When using this oil, you can quickly calm your emotions and increase levels of happiness through the release of serotonin, helping to fight off depression, regardless of the cause.

How to use – inhalation is the most effective way to use jasmine, so adding it to a room diffuser, or putting a few drops in a steaming pot of water and then breathing in deeply, will provide you with almost immediate effects!

Geranium oil

Chronic pain and inflammation are often connected to depressive symptoms, so geranium oil’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties are very important. Furthermore, this oil is a sedative, helping to induce sleep and promote feelings of calmness so you can rest uninterrupted through an entire night.

How to use – people often place a few drops in their hands, rub them together, and then breathe deeply before going to sleep. However, room diffusers and aromatherapy practices also work well with geranium oil.

Caution

Using essential oils for anxiety and depression can be extremely beneficial, without the side effects of pharmaceutical solutions. However, each of these potent oils comes with its own unique set of side effects, ranging from skin inflammation and fatigue to severe gastrointestinal reactions, dangerously low levels of blood pressure, cognitive confusion, dizziness, appetite fluctuations, mood swings, and many more. Speak with a doctor before adding any of these concentrated oils to your health regimen. Be particularly careful about which oils can be internally consumed, as some can be quite toxic.
