Eat your stress away

Eat your stress away

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.

Anxiety: What You Need To Know?

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Psychological Medicine-DPM, MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, Post Graduate Diploma in Sexology, Certificate Course in Sex Therapy and Counselling
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Anxiety: What You Need To Know?

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
- nausea
- tense muscles
- dizziness

The cure:
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.

Hello, You can consult a physician/cardiologist first to rule out heart issues. Take your previous prescription with you. Sometime the medication can be a cause for it. A bed side ECG will rule out if its due to heart issue. If there is no heart issue consult a psychiatrist have a detailed assessment done. You can contact for further help. Best wishes.

If you feel excessive sleep or tiredness/ head spinning or vertigo like feeling you have to make sure you have no anaemia or hypothyroidism by doing a blood CBC & TSH and inform me directly 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Whatever you experience is 'sometimes' therefore Don't worry because it happens sometimes as you have mentioned. If it persists then it is a matter of concern. Don't label yourself having mood disorder. Let psychologist decide that. You seems to be over sensitive about your bodily experience. Relax at the moment.

Actually last month my brother in law aged 44 expired due to metastatic cancer in pancreas & intrahepatic cancer in liver. I was surprised to see that being a fully fit man without any disease. Now I am very much tensed that it could happen with any one. Pl suggest me which/what type of test/treatment could be taken up as a precautionary step.

It is sad to hear about your brother in law. Your height and weight indicate that you are fit and fine. You should not worry about disease and untimely death. Get your complete body tests/check done every three years from now on. You can only control what is in your hands. 1. Good natural simple nutrition 2. Daily exercise activities to stay fit. 3. Proper relaxation and sleep 4. Being stress free 5. Being happy and spreading happiness. If you can do all this then live a happy life. No one knows how many days we have been granted on this earth. We can only live in this moment. Breathe well and live well.

Never. Instead, quitting tobacco is actually going to help you in the treatment of schizophrenia. Go ahead and quit smoking. Take care.

Slow and deep breathing can help you cool off in a stressful situation. With deep breathing, more oxygen enters the body, which has a calming effect on your mind and body. In fact, 15 to 30 minutes of slow, deep breathing daily can help prevent stress. It can even help you think more clearly, so that you can deal with stress more easily. 1. When you are under stress, sit or lie down in a quiet, comfortable place. 2. Close your eyes and take a deep breath through your nose to the count of 5.3. Hold your breath for 5 counts, then exhale for 5 counts. 4. Repeat 5 or 6 more times or until you calm down and feel relaxed.
