Anxiety Disorder - Natural Remedies That Can Help You!

BAMS, MD Ayurveda

Anxiety Disorder - Natural Remedies That Can Help You!

In the fast paced world today, everyone is in a hurry to get things done and thus, sleep disorders, chronic stress and anxiety are natural outcomes. They may appear to you as very common and do not concern much. But in reality, they can be extremely harmful to your health. High blood pressure and diabetes are some of the most serious results of chronic anxiety and so these must not be neglected. Though there are uncountable ways of treating these problems, it is better to start with Ayurvedic home remedies as they can cure you completely of anxiety and depression without causing any side effects.

Drink a cupful of chamomile tea when you are feeling anxious
Chamomile contains apigenin and luteolin, which are known for promoting relaxation. A recent study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Centre reports that the patients who are detected with generalized anxiety disorder and took chamomile tea supplements for 2 months, experienced a significant reduction in anxiety and depression symptoms as compared to those patients who were given a placebo.

Try to have about 3 grams of Omega-3 a day
There is enough evidence that Omega-3 fatty acids help in easing anxiety symptoms as well as lifting your mood by reducing the stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol in the body. You can have canned fatty fish like tuna, salmon along with a handful of walnuts and flax seeds with warm milk as these are all great sources of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Breathe in lavender when you are stressed out
People who receive a regular massage with lavender oil are found to be more confident and optimistic and less anxious. It can even lower down the systolic blood pressure, which is related to the stress levels. You can also add a few drops of lavender oil in your bath as well as your pillow. If you want an immediate release from stress, then adding a few drops in a cup of hot water and inhaling it right away can be a great option. Lavender oil can be used in any form you want. So you may dab a few drops right on your skin as lavender is one of very few essential oils that can be directly applied.

Anxiety itself is very harmful, and it even paves the way for more severe ailments. If you had been suffering from anxiety and chronic depression for quite some time, then it is advisable to try these home remedies before popping in those anti-depressants with loads of side effects. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Stigma Around Psychiatric Issues And How To Overcome It

Stigma Around Psychiatric Issues And How To Overcome It

Though technology has progressed so much that many diseases are getting cured, people still have myths in their minds about mental illness. Mental illness is not considered as an ailment, but often considered as just a passing phase. In fact, having a negative perception of people with psychiatric issues is a matter of concern, known as stigma. 

Due to the stigma around psychiatric issues, people suffering from such issues face a multitude of problems, some of which are: 

  1. Patients may feel afraid to disclose their problems and to seek help, 
  2. Miscommunication may happen between the person and his or her friends and family members, 
  3. Lack of opportunities in case of academic as well as professional fields, 
  4. Facing of both physical as well as emotional bullying by people around, 
  5. Health insurance does not cover mental illness yet, 
  6. The myth that such conditions and situations can never be dealt with completely. 

Stigma is not a short term problem, and there can, of course be, solutions for people with psychiatric issues to deal with it. 

Get Education and Treatment 

It is very important for both the patients as well as the people around to get educated about their psychiatric issues. Today there are some options and ways through which patients can be successfully and adequately managed for many psychiatric issues. If people around you are not able to understand this, you need to ignore them and get proper treatment yourself. 

Do Not Let Stigma Affect You 

If you get affected by the stigma around you, you may get affected by other issues such as depression that may become even more serious. Hence, you need to learn to avoid such people and to gain confidence in yourself. If you have confidence in yourself, you will be able to perform all such activities in life that are performed by any person in an academic, professional or any other field. 

Socialize 

One of the most common problems that you may face is getting isolated. It is your right to lead a normal life, and hence, you need to go out and socialize. If you are not comfortable around your friend circle, you can join a support group that has members similar to you. 

There are many associations that run workshops and seminars to educate people for decreasing the stigma around mental health issue. You can also become a part of such associations, but of course, before that, you need to gain confidence in yourself. For doing this, some of the steps such as the ones given above can be of great help. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Am I depressed or having psychological illness? I have almost stopped all socializing for past 5 months. I don't like to drink. No addictions. I have started meditation. It was inner calling. I like to spend most of my times now reading. Net researching on higher meanings of life. Psychic development. .practising different meditation. Some times I do get stressed and agitated with results being slow. But I discipline myself to keep on researching. I am new to this new age meditation but nothing else in the world excites me anymore. I don't want to travel and see the world. I just want to keep on concentrating on developing my inner energies. Is this all normal? My healer guru travels and goes to ashrams. But I am super focused on just myself. I have developed reasonable telekinesis and telepathic skills till now. But I hardly go out anymore because everything and everyone saps my energy more. I like to just live in my bubble. I live in a posh apartment locality and most find me egoist not to mix with anymore. I owe noon any explanation. I have started doubting my social behaviour? .Do I need to have a balanced way of life Or Is this Ok? Kindly be blunt and honest in your opinion.

There is a certain limit to finding yourself. We are all social animals and need each other. When we learn something new about ourselves, we want to share it with others. This extent of withdrawal is not normal. You must learn how to live and love people. Otherwise you are confining yourself to your own comfort zone but this will soon feel lonely and boring. We are all made for relationships and if you are not in one, you will become an isolate. All this can lead to depression too. So go out and meet the world and enjoy all the pleasures of relating and loving people.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. I suggest online counseling and" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

How to stop negative thoughts and reacting for the same or self talk when negative thoughts trigger.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
How to stop negative thoughts and reacting for the same or self talk when negative thoughts trigger.
Our mind cold be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. I also offer 3 to 6 months program where we need on a weekly basis to work towards your goal achievement. In case of need you may contact me. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Dear Lybrate User, Body and mind are closely connected. If anything goes wrong with the body then it affects the mind and vice versa. Your present thyroid condition may be affecting your mind and may be responsible for your anger and depression. Please continue with the medicines but along with the medicines, if you talk to a Counsellor, it would help you a lot. It is important for you to understand what is making you angry and sad. Then, with the help of Counselling process, you learn to control/ manage your emotions. Please take an appointment with a Counsellor at the earliest. Take care.

It appears that you have difficulty in concentration which can manifest as forgetfulness. If you have other symptoms like sadness of mood, decreased interest in work, getting tired easily, sleep and appetite disturbances, than you might be having a depressive episode. You should consult a psychiatrist

Dear Puja, i am not sure that Gaurav is suffering from clinical depression. Depression may be a part of some other neurological illness. Probably that is why Cognistar was prescribed. Find out his diagnosis clearly. Any drug has to be weighed for its benefit vs harm. There is no drug which is absolutely safe. So will be Cognistar.

I am 37 years old. Got married last year to a person who was divorced. He was even jailed due to his ill behaviour with his previous wife. However I was single but due to my age I had limited option. And he then showed me he was the best. However after marriage from day 1 he had been fighting a lot. Wants me to work and pay his dues. When I said I won't. Then he completely denied that he ever asked for that. I planned to have baby. As I felt may be due to his old mishaps he is such. But during all my pregnancy he kept fighting with me. I am staying with my parents since past one and a half year due to his fights. I asked him to go to psychiatrist as he fights a lot. He takes it negatively. And doesn't talk to me for many days. Kindly advise how can I take care of all these. I have a seven month old daughter as well. And due to all the fights my health has deteriorated and not able to still go for any work. And I can't even claim for a good earning now. After a long gap year.

Hello ,I can well understand what you seem to be going through. There is a lot of insecurity that you must be experiencing .As per the details shared by you it seems your husband has some aggression issues hat need to be addressed. As this has been a kind of life style so he seems to be caught in the web .Talk to him patiently and ask him to state all his problems. Give him support that together you both can confront them. Make a list of the worries that trouble him and take actions step by step as a team, to handle them .Win his trust to enjoy a life long companionship. Certainly, constant problems can be a major reason for losing ones cool .So relax ,act and don't react to the circumstances. Surely you both can sail together with each other's support.

Tensaril is for hypertension, you have to continue it. Depranil is for reducing anxiety and inducing sleep. It is habit forming. Discontinuing suddenly may cause insomnia and anxiety. You may try to reduce the dose gradually over o period of three months.
