I am suffering from social anxiety. And not being able to enjoy my life. Have even tried things like visualisation. But they help only for short term. I feel so depressed about it. I fear it is going to severely affect my career as I am a CA student. N I have to face the corporate world. God only knows how I am going to tackle. Is there any solution? Pls help me out.

Hi. Here are few asanas which will help you in reducing the anxiety problem. -Sit in the meditation position (cross-legged or heel seat) and put the hands in the lap. The back is straight and the belly relaxed. Stop one minute every thought. Then remain in meditation, thoughts can come and go as they please. All feelings of anger, fear and grief appear and dissolve by themselves. -Dhanurasana: Lie on your stomach with your feet hip-width apart and your arms by the side of your body. Fold your knees and hold your ankles. Breathing in, lift your chest off the ground and pull your legs up and back. Look straight ahead Keep the pose stable while paying attention to your breath. Your body is now taut as a bow. Continue to take long deep breaths as you relax in this pose. But don’t get carried away! Do not overdo the stretch. After 15 -20 seconds, as you exhale, gently bring your legs and chest to the ground. Release the ankles and relax. -Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (The mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like Balasan, Setu Bandha Sarvangasan, Uttanasan, Garudasan, Savasana, Triconasana, Viprita Karani, Marjaryasana, Dhyana, Bhujangasana, Anulom-Vilum, Pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (Believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids). Medication: Take homoeopathic medication - Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Revert.

YES. IF YOU HOLD ON OR TRY TO GRAB SOMETHING THAT IS FAST SLIPPING FROM YOUR HANDS, YOU WILL BE HURT. MY STRONG RECOMMENDATION- LET GO............ IF YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS STRONG ENOUGH- IT WILL NOT BREAK. IF IT DOES- IT MEANS, NOT STRONG ENOUGH. SO, ACCEPT THE GOODNESS-- FEEL PRIDE IN LETTING YOUR PARTNER GO OUT...TO WHATEVER SHE WANTS.... IT IS IN GIVING THE OTHER PERSON COMPLETE FREEDOM, YOU WILL FEEL HAPPY. BY TRYING TO BEG HER, NOT LETTING HER GO.... YOU WILL BE HURTING YOURSELF. SO, NO PLEADING.... HAVE STRONG FAITH IN YOURSELF- IF YOU DESERVE HER- SHE WILL BE RIGHT THERE. BUT IN CASE, SHE IS NOT IN YOUR DESTINY----MOVE ON.

Avoid garlic and red chilly and non veg and eggs. Take more of proteins, less fats and very less carbohydrate ***Take Bacopa monn. 1x, 2 tabs twice daily with water.

Hi, please take medication for as long as prescribed and suggested by a doctor. Its not recommended to leave taking it on your own because then again these symptoms can show. You should show to a psychiatrist and continue with the medicines. Apart from that be active do exercise/yoga/ deep breathing to fight the stressors. If you are feeling any particular stress you can consult me.

Hello. I see your worry may be related to something which is why your are tenst and worried. You may want to start with few breathing exercises when you feel heavy and tenst. You can search online for various exercises to calm yourself during anxiety. Start telling yourself positive statements that may keep you going.

Speech Disorders - How Ayurveda Can Help You?

A large number of people in the world suffer or has suffered from speech disorders like stuttering or stammering at some point in their lives. Stuttering or stammering is the involuntary disruption or interruption in speech where certain sounds are prolonged or words are repeated. Speech disorder can cause a lot of problems in terms of personality build up and causes anxiety in people. Every activity of the body is dealt or controlled by the nervous system and the brain. Thus the proper functioning of the body is the sole responsibility of the brain and any glitch can affect the functions to a certain extent.

What are the symptoms of speech disorders?

  1. Words are repeated
  2. Prolongation of words or silent blocks
  3. Hesitation while speaking
  4. Difficulty while starting a word or a phrase

What causes speech disorders?

  1. Genetic problems
  2. Impatience
  3. Stress, Shame and Anxiety
  4. Embarrassment and nervousness
  5. Loss of control while speaking

Ayurvedic remedies to overcome speech disorders:

  1. Brahmi Oil: It is a stimulant that is known to calm your mind and boost the function of the brain. Take 10 ml of the oil and warm it. Cool it down to a suitable temperature and apply to your head when it is lukewarm, half an hour before going for a shower. You can also apply it before going to bed and shampoo the morning after. This is more effective.
  2. Black pepper, almond and sugar candy: Take black pepper, and make a paste out of it. To the paste, add 7 ground almonds and mix it with sugar candy. Consume this paste every day for at least a month.
  3. Amla: It is an effective remedy, especially in children to stop stammering. Also known as Indian Gooseberry, it should be chewed on to slowly every day.
  4. Cow's Butter: Also called as ghee, it is responsible for brain development and is known to increase memory. Add this ingredient to your food. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am a 22 year old female. My father has schizophrenia. And I'm facing some issues. I've isolated myself. Also in the verge of losing my job. I have suicidal thoughts, but haven't thought of doing anything. I have mood swings. I am normal sometimes but there are times I don't even want to talk or eat or do anything. Most of time I keep day dreaming and lose hold of reality. I don't think about my future or any responsibilities. I stay in my room for almost the whole day. I'm staying at my parent's, but still I don't feel like talking to them. I tried to check if I carry my father's illness. But I don't have any hallucinations or delusions. I've had depression for like 4 months continuously but later I had depression with gaps. Can you help me analyse what is this?

You need to be extremely careful with a genetic endowment for mental illness. It is possible for you to get other psychotic conditions too. YOu must never stay in stress for too long: it can precipitate any predisposition easily. Ideally, you must go out and socialize but you need to begin at home. You could do with some counseling help too. Do regular exercise, sleep well, eat healthily and above all get some education about emotions and remain balanced emotionally always. Equip yourself with healthy techniques and skills to be fit always. Keep the counseling going for a long time until you feel confident that you can handle all kinds of contingencies.

Dear, you are sleeping soundly. That is all. This is not any mental disorder. Just recall. You are able to wake up when there is an emergency requirement. Don't worry. Take care.
