The only difference between psychologist and psychiatrist is, that a psychiatrist can prescribe medications if required, while a psychologist can not. If you need to consult, you can consult a psychiatrist.

How to Deal with OCD

CERTIFICATE COURSE IN HOMOEOPATHIC CARDIOLOGY, M.D.(HOMOEO.)PSYCHIATRY, B.H.M.S.(BACHELOR OF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE & SURGERY.)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
How to Deal with OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is also known as OCD. It is a mental ailment that causes specific changes in the brain as well as the behaviour of the patient. It can also cause severe anxiety and lead the patient to consume a lot of time for completing even the most normal tasks. These obsessions are like thoughts, images and even videos playing where the cause of a certain action becomes more profound with the number of imagined risks if it is not done in a specific way, as per the mind of the patient. These turn into repetitive actions undertaken by the patient, where these actions are known as compulsions.

Hence the term: obsessive compulsive disorder. Washing, cleaning, losing control, contamination fears and more are only a few of the thoughts that plague patients suffering from this disorder. While this disorder may not have a specific cure, there are various ways in which it can be managed. Let us look at some of these methods.

Causes of OCD

The exact cause of OCD is unknown. It is generally considered unlikely that OCD develops purely psychologically as a consequence of the way we are brought up.

  1. Genetics and Physiology: It is generally accepted that OCD arises from differences in the physiology of the brain in people with the condition.
  2. Serotonin: Lack of serotonin activity appears to be involved in causing OCD. Serotonin is a calming and inhibitory neurotransmitter, one of its main actions is to control and put the brakes on painful, worrying or anxious thoughts.
  3. Traumatic Life Events: Traumatic emotional events such as bereavement may trigger or worsen OCD in people who already have a tendency to have the condition.

Treatment of OCD

For best results in treating this troublesome anxiety disorder combine brain-chemistry balancing approaches with psychotherapy techniques.

  1. Nutritional Therapy: Try tryptophan and St John's Wort to increase serotonin. Rhodiola has been shown to help generalised anxiety disorder however Rhodiola has the ability to raise 'brain energy' and therefore hypothetically may exa-sperate OCD symptoms. 
  2. The Inositol Treatment of OCD: Inositol, one of the B vitamins, has been found effective in treating OCD. Inositol is used in biochemical processes that affect serotonin receptors.
  3. Psychotherapy: This is also known as discussion or talk therapy where the patient is allowed to engage with a therapist who is usually a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist. The doctor will help the patient in first of all, becoming aware of the problem by helping the patient carry out various tasks in a controlled environment. These tasks will be timed and then relayed to the patient before the exposure therapy begins, where the patient will be taught to build a better quality of life. This a long term and time taking process which can also involve group sessions and sessions with the family members. Also, this method takes a lot of practice so that the patient learns how to regulate the obsessions and stop the compulsive behaviour gradually.
  4. Exercise: Numerous studies have shown the benefits of exercise upon mental health. So, a minimum of 20mins of daily exercise can help you a lot.
  5. Relaxation Training & Meditation: Learning meditation and relaxation techniques may enhance one's ability to control anxiety and one's thoughts in general.
  6. Medication: There are various kinds of medicines that can be prescribed for these patients. Anti-depressants can help the patient in overcoming the fears and anxiety that a person feels when the wheels of one's imagination begin to turn towards obsessive thoughts. This will also help in tackling the hopelessness that the person feels when faced with the so called depressing outcome of not bowing to the compulsive habits.

Putting It All Together

  • Follow the diet for serotonin deficient depression, and GABA deficient anxiety.
  • Consult with a qualified therapist using behavioural rather than analytical techniques.
  • Do some repetitive mind-occupying/filling as opposed to mind-emptying meditations everyday.

Dear, exam related anxiety is caused by unnecessary negative or obsessive thoughts and apprehension. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I feel terrible at that time and many negative thoughts come in my mind. I have never experienced this and I want to get cured. Plzz suggest what should I do.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation. You can consult me for further management if required.

My wife has panic attacks while traveling in vehicles . In trains also she has such attacks but only in general compartments but she is ok in AC coaches. Due to this anxiety of traveling she is distracted from doing her daily chores as a homemaker. Please advice

You need to first get her evaluated by a psychiatrist to find out if its an anxiety disorder. If she is fine in AC coaches it may be anxiety due to specific event or place, like crowded place or for security in general compartments. It can be an insecurity which causes the anxiety like safety issues. That needs to be analyzed. If she is being dysfunctional take her to a psychiatrist for treatment. Simultaneous counseling is needed.

The headache and forgetfulness are both probably related to the depression. And it sounds like it is an anger related depression. I am concerned that in these five years you may not have sought counseling in tandem with the medication. This is absolutely essential for you to experience any progress, and even to plan a recovery. The counseling will teach you a lot of skills and techniques to deal with the daily challenges of life in general and for someone with depression in particular. In fact your counseling sessions will need to be more frequent so that your day-to-day progress is properly monitored. Kindly attend counseling session to reap the full benefits of the combined therapy.

I have speaking problem there is little stop occur while speaking from 3-4 years. Please give me solution.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
One of the main reasons for speech disorders and stammering is fear and anxiety. Reduce your speed of speech for now, thus the stammering would decrease and fluency of your speech would become better. When fluency of speech reaches normal, then you gradually increase speed of speech, thus the overall speech can become as original. Because stress and anxiety increases stammering, you should also do transcendental meditation. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center. Hope this helps.

You are grieving over your father's death and that is very natural because you were emotionally attached to him and he's been around you all these years. Give yourself time to feel better. Especially if you were attached, dependant on him in some ways to feel better and get along in life. His going away was definite but I don't know whether you were mentally and emotionally prepared for this eventuality. Since he has passed away, now remembering how he contributed to your life and what he stood for in life will help you to remember him and keep him close to your heart. Doing things in the way he expected you to do and adding your own unique touch will help to move the family legacy ahead. Life and death are a part of life. New life springs from the remains of the dead. That's the rule of the nature. Some spiritual and religious sermons and speeches too help people to connect with their loved ones and heal an aching longing to be with them. Some people read religious text, some see their friends, or family guru. You decide what is your way to find a space to talk about your thoughts and feel better. If you are finding it difficult to do all this on your own, then you could see a counsellor who will help you to manage this emotional time. You could get an unbiased space to voice out your concerns, fears, and any regrets from the past and what could be the best way forward now. Emotional upheavals bring stomach upsets with them. Our gut is very much linked to our emotional state. You seem to be anxious and that is causing acidity and gas. See a doctor and get it checked out. Don't miss meals and eat on time. Drink a lot of water to combat acidity. Take care.

Your stomach upset is definitely related to the anxiety attacks you are experiencing. You may be troubling yourself unnecessarily and too caught up with excessive thinking. You must now act on these problems and only then will a solution appear. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Dea, you are 24 years and you should have the logical approach towards this problem than emotional approach. Logical thinking settles the relationship down. You are still worried because you still hope to get her. That is over. If you don't realize it now, you may be requiring psychiatric treatment in the future. Grow up, dear. Take care.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Hi, I am very sad about my psychological problem that I get suddenly unconscious anywhere. Please advise.
Sudden loss of consciousness can be a symptom of underlying unresolved and untreated anxiety. You need counselling and treatment with medicines if required. Also you might need investigations to rule out other possible causes of such symptoms like epilepsy, anemia, brain lesions etc. Consult a psychiatrist for management. Consult me online for any other queries and assistance.

Hi doctor im 28 years old male I do have sleep disorder from the past 6 years and I have not take serious action but ...
In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.
