Say Goodbye to Stress With Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Say Goodbye to Stress With Homeopathy

Stress is the physical or emotional response of the body to an internal or external stimulus that upsets the equilibrium of the body. The contemporary lifestyle causes a lot of stress, which may have adverse impacts on your health.

Homeopathy can be used to combat stress without harmful side effects. Since stress is responsible for several health problems and homeopathy aims at eliminating the root cause of said disorders, these remedies can cure a lot of stress related problems too.

The common homeopathic medicines used to deal with stress are:

  1. Gelsemium: Gelsemium is an immediate solution to anxiety and apprehension caused by an upcoming event such as a performance, an interview or a test. Gelsemium can relieve symptoms like short-term paralysis, increased pulse rate, dizziness, nausea and indigestion.
  2. Argentum nitricum: It is useful for nervous fits and impulses caused by suggestibility and extreme mental exertion.
  3. Arsenicum album: It is beneficial for people who are anxious, fastidious, nervous or excessively critical. It is also used for patients who exhibit tendencies of paranoia, such as arriving hours early for an appointment out of an irrational fear of being late.
  4. Calcarea carbonica: It is an appropriate remedy for work related stress or burnout. Often, people feel an intense amount of pressure at their workplaces because they feel that they are constantly being watched and evaluated, and are afraid of making even minor mistakes or have strict deadlines to meet.
  5. Natrum muriaticum: It is the treatment for symptoms like insomnia, claustrophobia, frequent headaches and pain around the eyes. It is also used to treat stress caused by isolation and dejection.
  6. Pulsatilla: It is a remedy for mild or violent mood swings caused by stress. The patient may alternate between over excitement and depression within a very short period of time.
  7. Ignatia amara: This is used to deal with depression caused by stress factors like humiliation, fear, guilt and loss. People who go into shock can also be treated with Ignatia amara.

However, the medicines must be taken only after seeing a doctor as he checks out the exact symptoms of your condition and only then prescribes the medicines.

Sudden stop of smoking weed will cause any defects ? How to get out from it ? Is that any natural way without tabs or any.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Yes. Suddenly quitting weed could cause withdrawal symptoms like restlessness and nervousness. You can engage in physical activities and outdoor games and engaged entertainment. Drink lots and lots of water and fruit juices. Take care.

I am mother of 16 years boy. He is very distracted, careless thats why hez intolerable at school n home. He alwz does those things you do not want. He is failed in 9th for this reason. School says that he has no limit for his bad things and they are right as I am facing those problems 24 hrs and my husband has a project work so I am handling him alone and feeling that I am living vd an animal cuz I am in deep depression, I am living the life which I am really not. What should I do? He is not realising what he is doing with others. noon likes him. He has no aim. He is replying back all the time without any knowledge. You can not tell him anything as he is not a listener. My behaviour is also being very rude to him. He is not realising tht his mother is being sick now. Even I bite him to protect my self vd him.

Dear madam, This is a complicated situation that has no simple answers. At the same time, it is also a very common scenario, and not all that unusual. Ideally, the both of you must see a mental health expert. However, I understand that he will not be willing to see anyone. Again, even this scenario is common and not unusual. The correct thing to do for you is to come over and meet a mental health expert to figure out the exact situation in detail. There are no short cut answers but at the same time it is also true that the situation can be improved gradually under expert guidance. Once you come over alone, besides figuring out the exact situation and future strategies, your own stress and depression, as a separate individual can also be understood and treated as necessary. It is a reasonable possibility that after a few discussions, appropriate ways of making your son interested in this process and making him attend sessions is also possible. I would see this as a temporary phase that can be gradually improved and there are numerous examples of such situations in families having gotten better over time with appropriate interventions. Take care! Do not worry! Things will definitely be better!

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately along with the medication and you must cooperate to your utmost with both therapies. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am 55 years old, my problem is that I like only selected persons, usually I do not want to mix up with every one because I dislike most of the persons, I meet.

This is probably a personality related issue. These kinds of problems are common and not treatable with medicines. This is particularly so if your nature has been so since early years. However, psychotherapy or specialized counseling can certainly help. It will need some time and effort from your side to do this.

Due to changing lifestyle in this competitive world sometimes we feel so lonely as we are surrounded by many peoples but we don't connect with them its like" water water every where but not a drop to drink" and all these factors some times lead to loose intrest in every type of activities and when any emotional person faces this type of situation he/she really feels problem because now a days peoples are becoming self centred without caring for others feeling but it does't mean that this situation cannot be change what it requires is slightly change in our view point as we cannot change the people and environment around us but we can change our view point so that we can lead good life, your concern is showing that you want to change this situation ,its really positive point .I am sure with slightly change in your view point you will be able to feel all the beautiful colours of life. You can also consult any professional regarding this. Life is very precious we get only 1 life so enjoy as much as you can, there are many colours in life ,only the difference lies in our approach just think about patient who is suffering from cancer at last stage that patient will desperately want to live as much as he/she can ,i know by only saying its really difficult to manage ,but you have to divert your mind, try to make yourself busy as much as you can so that no other type of thought came. And if still thought runs then write it on paper and also write that you will think on this topic at some other time mention the time and say to yourself that at now I am suppose to do some other work. Make some new friends, try to chat on fb ,but anyhow you have to make yourself busy, increase social activities, you can do yoga and some deep breathing exercise, join any hobby class, listen loud music as it will interfere with your thought, you can make some plan with friends, make any good friend so that by sharing your feelings you will feel good. Take care.

The medications are fine, but your hallucinations are not controlled. So you need a revision of prescription, consult your psychiatrist. He will be able to help u. If all 4 years the symptoms have not remitted, with adequate dosage, there are medications for resistant hallucinations. All the best.

I am 20 years old and my mind power is very weak so please give me tips.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. At your age and otherwise also you can have distractions easily and the mind will tend to be occupied with things that interest it. You can follow these simple rules: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises (in fact Yoga has some good exercises for focus and concentration like looking at your thumb and at candle light), 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. Afternoons are a bad time to do study by reading. 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. In a calm disposition concentration is much better and you will be able to study better. You may need to make notes and reduce the quantity of material to be studied and that will make it easier. Today the syllabus is very heavy and so it is difficult but you must find ways of giving more important topics more of your time and attention and that way you will prioritize your effort.

How should be concentrate our. Mind. While. Studying at. Night. And hw we should learn correctly?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Lybrate-user. First of all, study times and study methods have to be individualized. However there are certain prerequisites for a good study and learning process. Your mind needs to be focused, should have good concentration levels and no distractibility. If you are easily distracted and less attentive that could be a presentation of attention deficit disorder. So also you need to have only the right amount of stress for study. Learning is a combination of attentive reading, grasping and rehearsing what you learnt. Here are few steps to improve your concentration and learning. - set approachable targets for study everyday - do not stretch yourself beyond your physical or mental limits - study in short periods of 40-50 minutes, take relaxing breaks of 5-10 minutes in between. - do not be overdemanding. Know your limitations, study regularly and steadily. Practice makes a man perfect. If you still have issues with concentration and find it difficult to be attentive while studying, see a psychiatrist soon.
