Social Anxiety Disorder (social phobia) is the third largest mental health care problem in the world today. The latest government epidemiological data show social anxiety affects about 7% of the population at any given time Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people. It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person's life. It is chronic because it does not go away on its own. Anxiety reducing medications along with CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), can change the brain, and help people overcome social anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist and get helped. All the best.

Your prescription needs revision, consult a psychiatrist and get the best medicine which helps to control the symptoms and does not produce any unpleasant effects. But give your psychiatrist few reviews to get the right one as different people respond differently. Also your need to wait for 1-3 months for significant improvement. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

My case may take your time but I request you to pay attention now we are a family of five as I just got married. My parents relationship were not healthier since starting. But they do love both of us. I left my home in 2006 for college and then job and it impacts my mother mind hard. Since 6-7 years I am noticing she lost her confidence. She keep standing in the kitchen for 3-4 hours and doing nothing. Starts looking the roof and start laughing and she never eat food with anyone. It' s not that my father is a bad guy. We all tried to understand her mindset but not possible. Now my sister also moved out of karnal for job and now just my parents are left at home. Now when I see my mom, I want to help her. I don' t know what exactly is going in her mind and she never shared her feelings. She just keep calling me and ask for my health and food. I do worry for her and she is not in good state of mind. I saw her sometime talking to wall or something. My father also tries to help her but we don' t know how to handle or do? i' m ready to do anything just to bring her back to normal. Please help!

Your mother had gone through a very stressful and hard life after marriage, I think. She had her desires suppressed. She could not express herself, openly and this led to her present state of mind. For her treatment proper counselling is required and certain psychotic drugs to be recommended after counselling.

Hyperactivity in Children - Role of Homeopathy In Treating It!

Hyperactivity in Children - Role of Homeopathy In Treating It!

Parents get very concerned when they are just not able to hold their child’s attention who is restless, hyperactive, anxious, highly energetic, and never attentive. For some, this could initially be an exciting phase but can be an indication of some serious underlying disorder too.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or hyperactive disorder or ADHD as it is commonly known is a group of symptoms including behavioural, mood, cognitive, and learning disabilities with a lot of aggression, irritability, excitability, forgetfulness, restlessness, reduced attention span, etc. in these children. Listed below are the common symptoms, which are almost diagnostic of ADHD are:

The impact is felt across all spheres of life including home, academics, school life, and in relationships with friends.

  1. Usually seen in children before the age of 7.
  2. With very short attention spans, the child constantly looks for something to do and be engaged.
  3. Very easy to get distracted even when engaged, the child is very restless.
  4. Sleep disorders.
  5.  With constantly being on the toes, the child feels tired and lethargic.
  6. Difficulty prioritising and frequent procrastination.
  7. They forget things quite easily and would ask for help with coordinating movements.
  8. Rare, but some children can have learning disabilities like dyslexia, but their intelligence levels are not affected.
  9. Disorganisation, leading to poor motor coordination and impaired movements.
  10. Difficulties with fine motor and cognitive skills may cause delay in engagement in sports.

Causes

  • Diet changes with rise in processed foods and sugary diet.
  • Social changes like nuclear families, single parents, lack of siblings, etc.
  • Increased time spent with electronic devices.

Homoeopathy has an effective cure for ADHD as it looks at the child holistically and proposes remedies. Homeopathic constitutional treatment provides an effective solution for adhd. Some common remedies are listed below. A word of caution though never self-medicate using these. ADHD is a complex condition and should be assessed completely before initiating treatment.

  1. Tarentula Hispana: Most commonly used in treating idiosyncrasies. The child is hyperactive, compulsive, restless, constantly moving, and has difficult being in one place, can be violent and destructive. Strange, but they have a strong liking to music.
  2. Stramonium: When the child is fearful or aggressive or withdrawn (usually due to a traumatic event), they tend to seek attention and this is then used.
  3. Hyoscyamus Niger: Used in children who present with manic or sexualised symptoms.

Homeopathy is used in ADHD where symptoms are across the spectrum - hyperactive to complete withdrawal, completely based on symptoms and psychotherapy plays an important role in treatment through behaviour modification techniques like CBT. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

It is natural to be anxious when you are writing an important exam so that you do well but excess anxiety can be counterproductive and hinder your learning and revision. If you are suffering from depression, then you will need to take psychiatric treatment and undergo psychological counselling as well to manage depression. Cognitive behaviour therapy is excellent for controlling rumination and negative thinking, anger management and any emotional disturbance. You can also look at alternate sciences to help you with depression because they don't have side effects. 1. You need to understand the source of your emotional upheaval and learn to either manage with it or cope with it so that you can concentrate on your studies. 3. Exercising regularly within your capacity is very important so that natural neuro are released in the brain and you will feel relax and calmer and more confident and motivated to do many things. You can run, walk, gym, dance, whatever you can and want to do. 4. Avoid all kind od processed and refined foods and replace with fresh fruit and vegetables for your nutrition. You need more of lean proteins, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin b12 and vitamin d3 for optimal brain functioning and emotional wellbeing. 5. Sleeping well for 6-8 hours every night is important for the brain to recoup from daily stress and body from physical stress. Please do bhramri and anulom vilom pranayama to help you sleep well every evening for 10 min each. Please give your exams only that much importance that is due to it because life is more than these exams and not everything in your life depends on them.

My brother is suffering from schizophrenia. He is under treatment since last 3 years. Now he is complaining of weakness and he want to discontinue tablets saying that these are not needed for me. Last year also he discontinued for 3 months and disease was relapsed then again he restarted treatment. My question is what we should do, treatment is going long and long and he don't want to take saying that I'm ok. 80% of the symptoms are gone. Answer me. Thanking you.

Thank you for your question. If your brother want to quit treatment than you have two options now to continue his treatment without his knowledge. Depending on the remaining symptoms: one option is liquid form or dispersible medicine which is tasteless, colorless and odorless . You can continue this medication in minimal dose.
