Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

Dear Mary. Panic attacks are always due to underlying anxiety disorder. Therefore treatment is given to anxiety disorders and thereby panic attacks are cleared. If you take treatment for anxiety disorder, you don't have to worry about panic attacks. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, **the food but ginger is well accepted as a traditional cure for indigestion. Ginger as a food ingredient or in a strong ginger tea helps in causing stimulation of saliva, bile juices and gastric juices while all these play important roles in digestion. Drinking ginger tea is certainly much more beneficially to get rid of gas and indigestion problems than coffee and soda.

Good question Mr. Lybrate user. Keep it up. To maintan good quality of life, first of all, you need to focus on your diet intake, which should be home maqde, wel balanced with more proteins, less fats& carbohydrates, more fibre rich, like you can take all non. Veg items but fresh, home made, less spicy, less oily but not fried in oils, etc. If eggs, prefer white. If pure veg, you take, more dal, millets, spouts, dry fruits[even if you take, non. Veg also, you should take more veg is better}, milk morning & nigt before going to bed, replace sugar intake with jaggery or honey, take 3-4 litres of water/day. That too taking 1/2 litre to 1 litr in morning with empty stomach is very good for body as a cleanser. Do not forget to keep mind & body in qyilibrium by practicing yoga, pranayama, mediattion, breathing exercises, regularly& physically to become fit, do exercises, warm ups, playing some favourite spiort regularly is good. Try to avid alcohol, smoking max. If any tea habit, its okay if 1-2 times, but reduce more than 2 times if its or, try to replace with lemon tea, or green tea. Avoid junk/fatty/packed/fast/spicy/oily/out side/canned food& drinks, like carbonated rinks. Take more green leafy veg, veg, in your diet. Avoid using smart phones usage at maximum at your level, I know now a days, its must for everybody, for every thing, so try to limit to certain period on urself, use ear phones max. Whenever you need to listen or talk. Take care.

Dear , the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please provide me with more information and post a private question. I will help you with this. Take care.

You are worrying unnecessarily. Urine color will be determined by the food you eat to a large extent. Yes, it is true that this may also mean concentrated substances that the body finds it necessary to discharge. So it is a good thing. If you find other symptoms of pain while urinating, fever, and any other medical signs, only then do you need to consult a doctor. I however, advise you to drink a lot of water every day to flush out toxins from your body more frequently. Then you will notice clear urine after the first discharge.

Hi lybrate-user, if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. First and foremost, don't let your anxiety cause you to make poor decisions about anxiety treatments. The reality is that most" rapid" treatments don't work. You'll find many people that claim that they have an extract or a medicine that can cure your anxiety immediately, and unfortunately it's never the case - it's people taking advantage of you in your time of need, and hoping the placebo effect will be enough to cure your anxiety. Even prescription medications have a" false" component. Prescription medicines can give you some help with anxiety, but that help is only temporary, and your mind and body can actually become dependent on these medications. As soon as you stop taking them, your anxiety may not only come back - it could even be worse than before. Curing your anxiety is a process - it's a process that can happen, for everyone, but those that hope they can get instant anxiety help are going to be disappointed, and possibly taken advantage of. Your symptoms define your anxiety if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. Imately effective treatment. Setting up a long term plan - making realistic goalsi possible to reduce your anxiety every day. There are countless tips to learn to manage it. But you need to do two things: you need to make sure that you're giving yourself realistic goals. You need to make it a long term plan. You can get anxiety help now - help that will genuinely reduce your experience with anxiety. But it will only reduce it so much. You'll still need to keep at it, and commit to it in a way that will guarantee short and long term results. Realistic goals will ensure that you don't give up. You're bound to have setbacks, because life isn't stress free. A long term plan will also make sure that you keep at it - you'll not only have something to do next, you'll also know what to do next. For example, let's look at several strategies you can do right now that will reduce your anxiety: start jogging jogging isn't just for your health. Jogging releases endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that improve mood. It also tires muscles, and there is evidence that extra energy in muscles becomes converted to a feeling of anxiety. Sleep better getting more sleep will fight anxiety right away. Far too many people are allowing themselves to be sleep deprived, but sleep is one of the most important and easy tools your mind has for coping with stress. Breathing training many anxiety symptoms, particularly for those with anxiety attacks, are a result of inadequate breathing techniques. Anxiety can actually train your body to breathe poorly, leading to hyperventilation and a variety of related symptoms. Exposure therapy exposure is a cognitive behavioral technique that trains you to get used to things that used to cause you anxiety. For example, if you often get anxiety when you feel dizzy, you spin around in a chair and use a variety of techniques to calm your mind. Lifestyle changes many lifestyle changes that you will need to make in order to live with anxiety also require long term changes. For example, who you spend time with may need to change, as will how you react at your workplace. These strategies take longer, and require more effort and planning on your part. They're also not immediately successful, and there are often setbacks. Realistic goals and an effective and healthy plan can reduce the effects of these setbacks. You'll also need to be okay with admitting to yourself that you have an anxiety problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to try to fight the truth about your anxiety, you'll struggle to overcome it. Anxiety and stress are very real problems that affect people every day, and there's nothing wrong with you if you suffer from them. As soon as you can come to terms with your anxiety, you'll be on the right path towards treating it. Consult for psychotherapy for anxiety.

You may be an introvert. This is a problem of fearing people for what they think about you, especially the ones who know you best. Yes, people will often judge you but that is not the final word. When we try to read other people’s mind we will always think that they know the worst things about you, that your flaws are easily visible, and then you feel self-conscious and guilty. This is all far from the truth. People do not know you, even if they are married to you for many years! In fact, you do not know yourself for many years and may go to your grave with a minimum understanding of yourself. So, face people with confidence, knowing that they are the least knowledgeable about you. Sometimes, your family may not have socialized much and that can also give you a disadvantage about mixing and meeting people. This can be unlearned and you can make a new beginning and easily become a social butterfly. Many people have hesitations about social situations and are in the same boat: you have a lot of company. The bottom line is that you have afraid: deal with your fear and people will seem different, and not so threatening. This ability is a natural ability in all of us. If it was not stimulated early in your life, now is not too late. We are all gregarious by nature, and need each other, to the extent that we are all interdependent. I recommend that you attend a personality development course, attend the Toastmasters Club, and meet people by attending conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings, and social clubs. In time, this anxiety will dissipate and disappear, completely.

6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

M.Sc - Disaster Mitigation, MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
What is avoidant personality disorder?

Feelings of inadequacy for long durations and being extremely sensitive to what others think of you is a disorder called avoidant personality disorder symptom. Such feelings of inadequacy in turn push the person to become isolated from the society and the person avoids people, work, and other activities. Social and occupational functioning is affected as the person is extremely sensitive and has very low self-esteem. Symptoms of avoidant personality disorder are:

1. Avoiding social interactions: people suffering from this disorder avoid almost all sorts of interpersonal contact since they lie with the fear of rejection, disapproval and criticism.

2. Avoiding risks: they avoid taking personal risks or being involved in activities which seem new, because they fear that they will embarrass themselves.

3. Socially unplugged: they are not willing to get involved with individuals unless they are absolutely certain of being liked by the person.

4. Preoccupied with negative perception: the idea of being criticized or rejected in social functions is so deep within their psyche that they are often preoccupied with only this thought in their minds.

5. Inferiority complex: people suffering from avoidant personality disorder consider themselves as good for nothing, unappealing, and inferior to everyone else.

6. Avoid intimacy: they are always reluctant to get into intimate relationships because they feel that they will be shamed and ridiculed. Because of such fears, they let go of relationships where they would have been genuinely cherished too.

The only treatment possible for this disorder is psychotherapy. While some people opt for long term therapy, most people usually visit a psychotherapist only when they feel overwhelmed with their fear and emotions.

Is medication good for psychosis? If not what is the alternative?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
Medication is absolutely good and necessary for treating psychosis. There is no alternative but you will need to combine counseling or psychotherapy along with the medicines. Psychosis is a problem of imbalance in the chemical production or processing of the same in the brain. In very rare cases, in institutional settings, in very intense one-to-one therapy, it has been claimed that there has been erratic success to get the brain to produce the same chemicals to compensate the loss or gain. People have resorted to black magic to undo the spells that they believed has cast them into such states; and religious superstitions that have only worsened the condition. The advancements in medicine have improved to a large extent to contain most conditions. It is the naive who sometimes mess the situation by other approaches that it worsens the psychosis to a chronic and irreparable state. The plight of the individual is doomed forever.
