Anxiety - How To Overcome It With Homeopathy?

It is normal to feel nervous before an interview or be anxious about something, but letting that fear take over you is not normal. If your worries and stress interfere with your day-to-day life, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Fear not, this is treatable with homeopathy.

Here are a few homeopathic remedies to help calm an anxious person

Kali Phosphoricum: Kali Phosphoricum is a potassium phosphate that helps calm people when overwhelmed by anxiety attacks. This is suitable for people who are easily stressed, over sensitive, insecure, irritable and despondent. It also helps deal with the after effects of grief and fright. Physical ailments such as fatigue, dullness and lack of energy that are a result of anxiety can also be treated with this bio-chemic salt. 

Aconite Napellus: Aconite Napellus is made from a purple flowering plant by the same name. it has a number of uses, primary among which is to control  anxiety. This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for sudden, intense anxiety attacks and for post traumatic anxiety. It also helps deal with after effects of anxiety such as memory weakness, restlessness, oversensitivity and spells of rage. 

Argentum Nitricum: Argentum Nitricum is also known as nitrate of silver. This is helpful in cases where anxiety makes a person insecure and unsure of what to do. When you're anxious, you are likely to crave for something sweet and feel very hot. Both these are cyclic symptoms of anxiety, and can worsen the situation if not dealt with. However, Argentum Nitricum helps calm the digestive effects of sugar and cool the body to keep anxiety levels in check. 

Arsenicum Album: Arsenicum Album is a constitutional remedy that can treat both chronic and acute problems. This works well on people who are worried about safety and security. If issues like health, money and break-ins are the cause of your anxiety, this homeopathic remedy is ideal for you. It also helps deal with restlessness. 

Calcarea Carbonica: This homeopathic ingredient is made from the middle layer of sea shells. When it comes to anxiety, Calcarea Carbonica is well suited for people who are scared of change and over controlling. This anxiety is accompanied by excessive sweating due to any exertion and stubbornness. Such people are also often afraid of animals and of the dark and get easily confused. 

One of the biggest advantages of homeopathy over allopathic treatment is the absence of side effects when taken in low doses. However, even homeopathic medication can have side effects when taken in high doses. Therefore, it is a good idea to consult a doctor before self medicating with homeopathy.

6 Ways How Alcohol Abuse Can Ruin Your Relationship

You may think that it is just a harmless drink or two at the end of the day to help you relax. it's just a few drinks when you get together with friends. or it's just that you need to get rid of the office stress.. We all need to catch a break sometimes, which makes our favorite brand of drink our best friend. Trouble starts when 'a drink or two' moves to a level where you can't hold the drink anymore. It affects your ability to think straight and take decisions that you may regret in retrospect. Alcoholism not only has serious health consequences but also can ruin your life and relationships. Don't tread down the path of self destruction, or this is what you'll find

1. Conflict: It is not a coincidence that fights are common when one or both partners are caught up with alcohol abuse. It is said that if there is too much alcohol in your system, it hampers with your ability to make rational decisions. It allows you to become inconsiderate about others, and give more importance your addiction over their requirements. It, to an extent, numbs you to what others feel, and makes you drink even more.
 
2. Financial loss: Alcohol costs money. And the more you spend to keep up with your addiction, the more money flows out of your monthly household expenses, monthly savings and retirement plans. And this money literally goes down the drain. Like any other addiction, once you start alcohol abuse, you need it everyday. Drinking may go on to impact your ability to hold on to your job as no one will eventually want to hire someone who has alcohol on their breath at 9am during client meetings. Alcohol is a strict restriction in certain professions where you may put other people at risk. At the very best, you'll be left with a warning. At the worst, you'll lose your job and end up with no work and no money to support your addiction.

3. Accident prone: In 2014, 9,967 people died in drunk driving crashes - one every 53 minutes. This may sound only like a statistic to you - until you speak to the families who lost their loved ones or have to see them suffer through loss of limbs or brain function to bear lifelong suffering. And as far as you are concerned, you may end up seeing the wrong end of a prison. Such things have a profound impact on your relationship - many of which fail to last through the ordeal. 

4. Infidelity: You've seen it a thousand times in movies - which actually might get reflected in reality, if you wake up next to someone whose name you don't know. 

5. Infertility: Alcohols and babies don't mix. Too much alcohol intake can stop women from making and keeping a baby. 

6. Divorce: An alcoholic husband or wife is a valid ground of mental trauma applicable in a divorce.

घबराहट के लक्षण - Ghabrahat Ke Lakshan!

घबराहट एक ऐसी बीमारी है जिसकी वजह से कई बार खतरनाक स्थिति पैदा हो जाती है. इसको हमलोग आम बोलचाल की भाषा में तनाव, अवसाद या चिंता भी कह कर पुकार सकते हैं. देखा जाए तो घबराहट अपने आप में एक बिमारी तो है ही लेकिन साथ ही कई बीमारियों की जड़ भी है. इस बिमारी में हमें मुख्य रूप से दुःख, बुरा महसूस करना, दैनिक गतिविधियों में रुचि या खुशी ना रखना आदि लक्षण दिखाई पड़ते हैं. जाहिर है इससे हम भी इन सभी बातों से भी लगभग परिचित ही होते हैं. यदि ये लक्षण थोड़े समय तक दिखाई दें तो ज्यादा परेशान होने की बात नहीं है लेकिन जब यही सारे लक्षण हमारे जीवन में अधिक समय तक रहते हैं तब ये हमें बहुत अधिक प्रभावित करते हैं. ये स्थिति बेहद तनाव से भरी होती है. विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन के अवसाद की परिभाषा के अनुसार दुनिया भर में अवसाद सबसे सामान्य बीमारी है. आपको जानकर हैरानी होगी कि दुनिया भर में लगभग 350 मिलियन लोग घबराहट या इससे संबन्धित अन्य अन्य बीमारियों से प्रभावित हैं. घबराहट एक मानसिक स्वास्थ्य विकार है जो कि कुछ दिनों की समस्या न होकरके एक लम्बी बीमारी है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से घबराहट के लक्षणों पर एक नजर डालें ताकि इस संबंध में जागरूकता फ़ेल सके.

घबराहट के लक्षणों की शुरुवात-
घबराहट अपने सामान्य रूप में अवसाद जैसा ही लगने वाली एक और समस्या है मूड का उतार-चढ़ाव. लेकिन आपको बता दें कि ये अवसाद से अलग है. मूड का उतार-चढ़ाव तो हम अपने सामान्य और स्वस्थ जीवन में भी अनुभव करते ही रहते हैं. लेकिन हमारे दैनिक जीवन में आने वाली चुनौतियों के प्रति हमारी अस्थायी भावुक प्रतिक्रियाएं अवसाद को जन्म नहीं दे पाती हैं. जैसे कि जब हमारे किसी करीबी की मौत होती है और हम दुखी होते हैं तो वो भावना अवसाद की श्रेणी में नहीं आती है. लेकिन यही दुःख जब लम्बे समय तक बरकरार रह जाती है अवसाद की समस्या हो सकती है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम घबराहट के लक्षणों पर एक सरसरी नजर डालते हैं.

घबराहट के लक्षण-
1. घबराहट के शिकार व्यक्ति के चेहरे पर आमतौर पर एक तरह के उदासी का भाव नजर आता है.

3. इसके मरीजों में ये भी देखा गया है कि इनको ध्यान केंद्रित करने में परेशानी होती है.
4. इन लोगों की मानसिक स्थिति के कारण इन्हें अक्सर दुखी रहते हुए देखा जा सकता है.

6. जिन लोगों को घबराहट की समस्या होती है वो चिड़चिड़े से रहते हैं.
7. घबराहट के शिकार व्यक्ति में हताशा भी आमतौर पर दिखाई देने वाला लक्षण है.
8. आम तौर पर हम लोग त्योहारों या नया मौकों पर आनंददायक या मजेदार गतिविधियों में भाग
लेते हैं जिससे कि एक तरह की ताजगी मिलती है.
9. तनाव के दौरान लोगों को बहुत अधिक नींद या बहुत कम नींद आने की समस्या होती है.
10. तनाग्रस्त व्यक्ति के ऊर्जा में कमी स्पष्ट तौर पर देखी जा सकती है.
11. ये लोग अक्सर अस्वस्थ भोजन की लालसा करते हैं.
12. हमेशा चिंतामें डूबे रहना भी घबराहट का ही एक लक्षण है.
13. कटा-कटा सा और दूसरों से अलग रहना भी एक कारण है.
14. डिप्रेशन से परेशान व्यक्ति के अंदर बेचैनी जैसे भाव भी देखे जाते हैं.
15. उन लोगों को स्पष्ट रूप से सोचने या निर्णय लेने में भी परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ता है.
16. इन सब कारणों से वो काम या स्कूल में खराब प्रदर्शन करते हैं जिससे उनकी परेशानी बढ़ जाती है.
17. घबराहट का शिकार व्यक्ति अपराधबोध से ग्रसित होता है.
18. परेशानियों से तंग आकर उनके मन में आत्मघाती विचार भी आते हैं.
19. आम तौर पर तनाव से पीड़ित लोगों के सिर या मांसपेशियों में दर्द रहने की शिकायत भी होती है.
20. कई बार घबराहट से परेशान व्यक्ति दवा या शराब का दुरुपयोग भी करता है.

Stammering - How Homeopathy Can Resolve It?

Stammering - How Homeopathy Can Resolve It?

Stammering or stuttering is a type of speech impairment where sounds or syllables are repeated involuntarily or there are unintended gaps in between words when the person is unable to make the desired sound. People develop stutters due to genetic flaws, motor functioning defects, coordination problems or due to psychological stressors. The condition can result in anxiety, depression and withdrawal from verbal communication.

How does homeopathy help?

A stutter can be practiced away or corrected by speech therapy but there is no specific medicine that can be used to cure stammering. Homeopathic medicines can provide relief from the symptoms by fixing flawed nervous functions, improve motor coordination and modify the vocal apparatus. Different homeopathic treatments can be used depending on the nature of the condition.

The following is a list of homeopathic remedies and lifestyle changes that can be used to address the problem:

1. Foods rich in vitamin B6 like nuts, fish, bananas and chicken should be consumed regularly by children who have a stutter to help with motor functions.

2. Adults should avoid caffeine, tobacco and other recreational drugs as they cause hyper-stimulation of the nervous system.

3. Stramonium(jimsonweed) can be used when the stammering is violent and the person distorts his facial muscles heavily in order to be able to speak.

4. Lychopodium (clubmoss) can be useful for stammering as well as depression, memory weakness and sleep problems. This is especially helpful if the patient struggles with the last few words of a sentence.

5. Spigelia is beneficial for a mild stutter at the beginning of a sentence, often followed by undisturbed speech.

6. Causticum is prescribed when emotional excitability causes stammering, twitching of the facial muscles or problems in the vocal chords.

7. Staphysagria can aid in reducing social anxiety which often causes stammering i.e. the stammer only appears while interacting with strangers or authority figures.

8. Nux vomica (strychnine) is the medicine to use when stammering is a result of extreme stress or over work.

9. Fright or shock often causes speechlessness or stammering. Aconite can provide immediate relief in such cases.

10. Lachesis is an effective homeopathic medicine when the patient stutters over specific letters or syllables.

11. Gelsemium is used to treat stuttering after severe viral infections when the patient complains of a heavy tongue and lack of general coordination.

Homeopathy is a natural and non-toxic remedy for several diseases. The major advantage of homeopathy over other medication is that it does not cause any adverse side effect. It is safe and can be used at all ages without worrying about any detrimental consequence. Homeopathy is known to be very effective in treating depression. Homeopathy medicines are prescribed after a thorough study of the symptoms. Homeopathy first treats the symptoms and then provides relief; for example, the constant mental exhaustion or some unexplained physical pain. It then works on the cause of the disease. In this case, the medicines will affect and treat the hormonal disorders or neurological disorders. Following this, homeopathy medicines will try to prevent the onset of depression in future.

What Is Love?

What Is Love?

What Is Love

Many people “in love” are addicted to it, just as people are addicted to alcohol, tobacco or other drugs. Love is difficult and requires work and practice. The number of definitions is almost endless. Poets, novelists, and theologians have struggled to define love, as have psychologistspsychiatrists, sociologists, family scientists, and journalists. Think about how you define love and how you know when you are “in love”.

Definitions on Love

  • In love, the paradox occurs that two beings become one yet remain two.

                  -Erich Fromm, Psychiatrist

  • Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.

                  -Ursula K. Le Guin, Novelist

  • He, who knows nothing, loves nothing…But he who understands also lovesnotices, sees…The greater the love, because of the more knowledge inherent in a thing.

                  -Paracelsus, Philosopher

  • Being in Love isn’t ever really loved, it’s just wanting. And it isn’t good. It’s all aching and misery.

                 -James Leo Herlihy, Novelist

  • Love is the history of a woman’s life; it is an episode in man’s life.

                  -Madame De Stael, Novelist

  • Love is a state of perpetual anesthesia.

                  -H. L. Mencken, Journalist

  • When the satisfaction or the security of another person becomes as significant to one as is one’s own security, and then the state of love

               -Harry Stack Sullivan, Psychiatrist

Dimensions of Love

The three dimensions of the love triangle (developed by Robert Sternberg) are

  • Commitment (the cognitive component)
  • Intimacy (the emotional component) and
  • Passion (the motivational component 
  1. CommitmentIt is a cognitive attachment to another person. It also develops over time, beginning slowly and increasing at a faster rate if the relationship is positive. If the relationship fails, commitment disappears. People express commitment when they move their relationship to a more advanced stage (from dating to engagement, from engagement to marriage), by being faithful or by staying in the relationship during difficult times.
  1. Intimacy: It involves sharing feelings and providing emotional support. It usually involves high levels of self-disclosures, the sharing of personal information not ordinarily revealed because of the risk involved. Intimacy gradually increases as closeness grows and deepens as a relationship matures. Few couples are likely to share everything with each other. Human beings need some private space, a bit of their world that is closed to everyone else. But in a mature intimate relationship, most areas are open for discussion and sharing. By opening up, by earning each other’s trust and becoming vulnerable to each other, people can build a strong emotional bond of intimacy.
  1. Passion: It is usually expressed by touchingkissing, and being affectionate, which is linked to physiological arousal; it is also expressed through sexual intercourse. Due to its intensity, passion develops quickly but can also fade quickly. Passion is like an addiction; when it ends, a person can experience withdrawal symptoms such as irritability and depression.

Combining these three dimensions of love in various ways, Sternberg identified eight types of love relationships: non-love, liking, infatuation, empty love, romantic love, fatuous love, companionate love, and consummate love.

  1. Non-love occurs when there is no commitmentintimacy or passion.
  2. Liking begins when there is just intimacy, but no passion or commitment.
  3. When there is just passioninfatuation occurs.
  4. Empty love involves commitment, but no passion or intimacy.
  5. Romantic love has both intimacy and passion, but it is lacking in commitment.
  6. Fatuous love occurs when a person is committed based on passion but has not had the time to develop true intimacy. (For example, a couple falls in love and after seeing each other only on weekends for two months get married).
  7. Companionate love is more characteristics of couples who have been married for years. They have both commitment and intimacy, but they lack the passion they had when they were first married.
  8.  Finally, Consummate love is complete love, containing all three dimensions. it is the goal of most couples.

Most people have experienced several of these types of love and can recognize that each of them feels rather different. Even within one relationship, it is possible to experience two or more types of love over time. A couple, for example, may start out as close friends (liking) and then two years later become sexually involved a year later they may decide to live together.

The Styles of Love

John Lee (1988) described six love styles. Similar to a colour wheel, there are three primary love styles (Eros, Ludus and Storage) and three secondary styles (Pragma, Mania and Agape). Each style has a unique character.

Primary Love Styles

  • Eros is romantic and passionate love, with an emphasis on sensuality.
  • Ludus is courtly love, love as a game with little depth or commitment.
  • Storge (pronounced “STOR-gay”) is based on friendship and on growing together.

The combination of two primary styles, like a chemical reaction, creates the three secondary styles.

Secondary Love Styles

  • Pragma, a combination of Ludus and Storge, produces a practical lover who may “shop around” for a potential partner.
  • Mania, a combination of Eros and Ludus, creates an erotic and game-playing relationship.
  • Agape(pronounced “A-GA-pay”) combines Eros and Storage and results in an intense and committed relationship that is altruistic and caring.

To validate Lee’s approach, researchers found that

  • People who describe themselves as being religious were more oriented toward friendships(Storge), were practical (Pragma), altruistic (Agape), and not inclined to game playing (Ludus).
  • People who described themselves as having high self-esteem were more romantic (Eros); those with low self-esteem were more likely to be game-players (Mania).
  • Looking at male and female (gender) differences, males tended to be Erotic (Eros) and game playing (Ludus),
  • Whereas females tended to focus on friendship (Storge), practical concerns (Pragma), and altruism (Agape).

According to Hendrick and Hendrick (1986, 1989), the six love styles can also be related to sexual attitudes and behaviours.

  • Eros lovers are passionate and seek sex as a peak experience. They are not very self-disclosing but encourage self-disclosure in others that is, they encourage others to reveal personal feelingsexperiences, hopes and disappointment.
  • Agape lovers are similar o Eros lovers, but they see sex as more functional, something to be enjoyed, like other aspects of life.
  • Ludus lovers are game-playing and casual about sex, not very disclosing, uninhibited sexually, and easily bored.
  • Storage lovers are idealistic about sex, encourage disclosures in others and are easily bored.
  • Manic lovers are also somewhat idealistic about sex and are not easily bored.

It is unclear whether one’s love style is constant like personality traits, or whether it varies depending on the kind of relationship style a couple develops.

Diabetes And Depression - Understanding The Vicious Circle They Create!

Diabetes And Depression - Understanding The Vicious Circle They Create!

Diabetes is one major silent killer. Depression is another silent killer. According to the studies, a patient with diabetes has higher chances of getting depressed. Lack of social support, staying alone, lower income, the presence of diabetes complications and poorly controlled diabetes increase chances of depression in diabetes patients. Similarly depressed patient is at increased risk of development of diabetes. Thus, depression and diabetes have a cyclic relationship.

Need to break

It is very important to break the vicious cycle as it can affect the sugar control, quality of life and patient care. The depressed patient is less likely to follow diet and exercise. They do not take medicines regularly. The depressed patients will have bad control of sugar and increased complications of diabetes. It affects the quality of life of the patient.

How we can break the cycle?

1. Speak out

Depression remains underdiagnosed and untreated. One of the reason is the stigma associated with psychiatric illness in the society. Unless and until patient doesn't talk about it they are not going to improve. Hence ADA recommends evaluating for depression in patients with poorly controlled diabetes.

2. Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy or in particular cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven beneficial towards treating depression.

3. Regular Exercise

Regular exercise is very beneficial towards treating, both depression and diabetes. Exercise helps regulate blood sugar levels and hence can help control diabetes. It also helps in reducing excess weight, which can enhance your self-image and make you feel happier. Simultaneously, it also releases endorphins or the 'feel good' brain chemical. This can help alleviate depression symptoms.

4. Antidepressant

These are the medicines given to improve depression. Under the guidance of a psychiatrist, they help a lot. So don't say no to these medicines when prescribed by the psychiatrist.
