I am 30 year old married woman very underweight just 40kg since many years. Increases sometimes again due to stress goes back to 40. I have anxiety and depression issues since around 5 years. Some months are fine winters are very bad. M taking homeopathic aurum met and for sleep also ignatia. There is relapse every year. How can I be fully and permanently cured.
Prevent low blood sugar as it stresses you out. Eat regular and small healthy meals and keep fruit and veggies handy. Herbal teas will also soothe your frazzled nerves.
Eating unrefined carbohydrates, nuts and bananas boosts the formation of serotonin, another feel-good drug. Small amounts of protein containing the amino acid tryptamine can give you a boost when stress tires you out.
What is anxiety?
We all stress. Nobody can live without stress. But what happens when the stress crosses from just being a distressful thought to a body complain. It becomes a medical disorder and falls into the category called anxiety.
So when I tell the above to people, their first question is, can this really happen or are you just fooling us?
Well the blunt answer is yes. The problem is that 99% people aren't ready to believe that the brain is a piece of mass just like your liver. So when you feed your liver with alcohol, it stops working.
Similarly when you have diabetes for long, your kidneys start having problem.
So if you start having bad thoughts for too long, the brain produces enough negative chemicals to cause physical systems.
What are the 5 main causes of stress that leads to anxiety?
1. Relationship issues
2. Financial issues
3. Problem with the environment at work/home
4. Fear of being wrongly judged by people.
5. An oversensitive personality
What are the general physical symptoms you experience when suffering from anxiety?
Every individual has a different manifestation to anxiety. But all anxiety disorders share some general symptoms. 6 or more of the following, coming and going often signal presence of anxiety disorder
- panic, fear, and uneasiness
- sleep problems
- not being able to stay calm and still
- cold, sweaty, numb or tingling hands or feet
- shortness of breath
- heart palpitations or chest pains
- dry mouth
- tense muscles
Cure is something tricky, because in india 99% don't accept they have a problem. Just like an alcoholic who doesn't care that his liver is killed with every drink, or the diabetic who doesn't accept his kidney is destroyed by every sweet he takes.
Stopping alcohol or sweets is easier, stopping overthinking, racing thoughts or stress isn't easy.
Since 99% self-medicate themselves by meditation, reading motivational posts or informative posts (like this one), cure never happens.
Secondly when your liver is giving problem you contact an expert in liver disorders, you don't consult facebook. But when it comes to the mind, everyone is an expert.
So to the 1% who seek cure, most welcome to consult me or any other psychiatrist in your area.
