Dear, This may not be totally medically proved fact however in my alternative practice, I ha e seen complaints like these improving after aura detox meditation. We have field of energy around us which gets contaminated by negativity and adverse thought energies. Aura cleansing through guided imagery meditation technique could give you immediate benefit. No harm in trying it out.

I am distracted most of the time so please kindly advise me something for concentration.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Therapy along cognitive behavioural therapy will help. Start by recognising your thought processes just before and during a panic attack. Medication may have some benefit but unlikely to cure it on its own.

Treating Anxiety, Stress and Depression with Homoeopathy

Treating Anxiety, Stress and Depression with Homoeopathy

Anxiety, stress and depression are common mental health disorders. Though they may be overlooked as “something that’s in your mind”, but these disorders can have serious implications on your health and the quality of your life. Homeopathy is an effective way of treating disorders like anxiety, stress and depression with negligible side effects.

Anxiety can be defined as the general feeling of fear or apprehension. Anxiety disorders may be seen in the form of general anxiety, phobias and obsessive compulsive disorders. Anxiety symptoms are generally sporadic and follow not set pattern. Homeopathy can be used to treat anxiety once the cause for the disorder can be identified. Two of the most common forms of homeopathic treatment for anxiety are:

  1. Aconitum napellus: Waves of anxiety or outright panic attacks can be treated with aconite. This is also beneficial if the person is fearful, restless, agitated or if he has recently experienced an accident or natural disaster.
  2. Argentum nitricum: Anxiety often takes the form of apprehension and nervousness about the future. In such a case, Argentum nitricum (Arg-n.) can be an effective form of treatment. Such cases of anxiety can worsen with heat and in crowded spaces.

The terms stress and anxiety are often used interchangeably, but they have different medical definitions. The response to situations and events that make us frustrated, anxious or angry are known as stress factors. Each person has a different response to stress. While it temporarily enhances productivity in some people, it can paralyze others. Here are two common homeopathic medicines that can be used to treat stress.

  1. Kali phosphoricum: Stress caused by overworking or illness can be treated with Kali phosphoricum. In such cases, the patient may be jumpy, over sensitive and can find it difficult to cope with normal life. Kali phosphoricum helps relax the nervous system and can also be used to treat insomnia caused by stress.
  2. Lycopodium: If stress causes the person to feel inadequate and pretend to be someone they are not, Lycopodium is a good form of homeopathic treatment. This can also treat irritability, crankiness and social withdrawal that results from stress.

Mild depression is often self diagnosed as a simple bad mood. There are many causes for depression including changes in the biochemical makeup of the brain. Here are a few homeopathic prescriptions for depression.

  1. Aurum metallicum: Failure to succeed is a primary cause for depression in people focused on work. Aurum metallicum can be used to treat such cases of depression. These symptoms may also be accompanied by feelings of humiliation and discouragement.
  2. Causticum: Depression caused by grief or loss can be treated with causticum. This also treats accompanying frequent crying, forgetfulness and mental dullness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

Dear patient, greetings from lybrate! we usually recommend to take anti-epileptic medicines like oxytol to be taken for 3 years at a stretch after she is seizure free. This is to prevent a recurrence soon. Never stop these medicines without advice of your doctor. I hope this helps.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out.
consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Respected Sir, Even though I practice allopathy, I am aware that there are medicines in ayurveda also for depression. However I chose to reply to your query as I wanted to know the reason why you wanted to stop Ventab. If it is due to side effects, there are numerous allopathic alternatives available with fewer side effects and better efficacy than ayurvedic medicines. On the other hand, if it is due to an inadequate response, you are taking a pretty low dose of Ventab which can be hiked up for better results. However I would advise you to do the same after consultation with a psychiatrist. Also, both ayurvedic and allopathic medicines have numerous drug interactions, hence I would caution you against the use of both at the same time and once again ask you to reconsider shifting from allopathy to ayurveda.

I live with my 4 months old child, mother in law and my husband's nephew, my husband is out for work and comes once in 3 days. In his presence these people show that they help me so much But when he goes to office they do not offer me any help. I am handling my small child all alone. I feel overwhelmed with frustration. Almost going into depression. Also. I want to work for my child's better future. My husband works very hard that is why I cannot share much of my problems with him. My mother wants to keep the child so that I can focus on my career. But at the same time I am deep down with guilt. Please suggest me something. Thank you in advance.

lybrate-user Having a baby is a huge transition in your life. Every transition comes with lots of ups and downs and adjustments. The baby demands a lot of attention, and when you have to solely take care of the child, even doing the basic things as going to the washroom needs planning. Also, our hormones are undergoing changes and that adds to our processing of information and our moods. Having a child is the biggest blessing, but despite that in that span of 24 hours we long for some me-time. To help yourself sort all of this, it will be good to get some ground set. The idea is you can't change anyone else's behavior or opinions. But you can do a lot of changes in your own behavior. That is the only thing which will give you the power to deal with any situation. Your child is your responsibility. Grandparents, friends, relatives will play with the child, babysit them for some time but they should not and neither we should expect them to take care of the child like you do. Whatever help they offer to you be glad that they are doing so, even if it is only in front of your husband. Be grateful for it. Look for some other temporary arrangement who can help you with the baby. As you said, you wish to work for your child. You sure can start doing something, but as your child is 4 months only and it is recommended that you breastfeed your child for first six months. If your mother is willing to take care of the child while you work, then go ahead with it. You wish to talk further in detail, or if you feel you have low mood all the time, it is healthy to see a psychologist. It would be good for your well-being. A happy mother means a happy child. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, There are plenty of natural remedies in the market but it is better to consult a professional. You can try natural mood elevators like exercising regularly, playing a sport, yoga, meditation, dark chocolate and even spending tome with people you love, doing things you enjoy! Another route would be clinical hypnotherapy, it has long term benefits. You an also consult a counsellor psychologist for help. Hope you feel better soon.

You need to do meditation and fulfill your needs first before sitting for studies. If you just sit for your studies as a burden you will never be able to concentrate. First decide and place your motive aim then look forward for it. However you can take biochemic tablets kali phos 6x once daily for 2 weeks and revert back.
