Hi, Kindly let me know that Stammering of kids can be cured by Acupressure? If yes let me know the treatment or doctors who can do acupressure procedures.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. Obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) is characterized by unreasonable fears or obsessions that cause a person to engage in compulsive behaviors to minimize or relieve their anxiety. Ocd can range from mild to severe and it can also be accompanied by other mental health issues. Coping with ocd can be difficult, especially the sufferer is not seeking professional help. Psychiatrists use different kinds of therapy and medication to treat people with ocd. Ocd patients can also do things like keep a journal, join a support group, and use relaxation techniques to help them cope with ocd. If you think that you might have ocd, you should seek professional help from a mental health professional. Keep reading to learn more about how to cope with obsessive compulsive disorder. Ocd causes lots of stress and anxiety. Therapy and medication may help to relieve some of your negative feelings, but you should also take time to relax every day. Incorporating activities like meditation, yoga, deep breathing, aromatherapy, and other soothing techniques will help you cope with your stress and anxiety make sure to take the medications that your psychiatrist prescribes exactly as directed. Do not skip, stop, or increase your dosage without talking to your psychiatrist first.

I get angry almost every time even for silly things. What can I do to control my anger?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Try to follow the below given tips for anger control, if it does not work, consult a psychiatrist. All the best. 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of, "You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

According to Doctor's diagnosis I am suffering from DEPRESSION and I am on medication , taking 'Sthalopam' 10 mg for the past 4 months ! I am feeling much better but I would like to come out of this malady at the quickest ! Is there any Ayurvedic medicine which can be supplemented without contradicting the current drug and side effects any , for a faster recovery ?

Antidepressant course would be decided by your doctor regularly depending on the progress. Combining two forms of medicine is not healthy. The drug you are taking has gone through multiple trials in many parts of the world and is approved by us fda and other agencies for treatment of depression. When r going to combine this with an ayurveda medication, the impact of the drug-drug interactions and the ayurveda s individual potency and side effects have never been studied, it can lead to severe kidney, liver or heart damage so better be cautious combining 2 forms of different medicine.

Hi lybrate-user ! I felt really bad, I could actually imagine how it would have hurted your son. Frankly speaking concentrate only on your son, but should also maintain at least a problem free life with your husband. Try to be silent, do not end up arguing. Try to not make the dispute big by answering your hubby all the time. Try to adjust for your little son sake. Try giving up. Try not to have too many expectation from your hubby. It happens at this age when kids are 1 to 4 years of age. Try to make your son little attached to his father also so that your hubby also will understand the importance of father how he should behave in front of your child, but handle this carefully. You need to adjust at least till your son turns 6 to 12 years of age. If in future you do something for your son try to hide and keep from your hubby. I feel I should explain more of how you have to behave with your hubby, bcoz kids are very important in life, bcoz most parents do not understand what impact will it do to their little ones though they love their kids, still when husband and wife starts an argument they go blind forgetting their child's presence, in front, how their little small heart gets hurted, so please come in for an online consultation so that I could help you overcome this problem completely, at one consultation itself if you feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage, if you feel this one suggestion will help you no problem. Take care of your little one, try to avoid argument which leads to fight between you and your hubby. With regards,

Dear lybrate user, try to talk to your friend. Listen to him/her without being judgemental. Encourage your friend to express his/her feelings, allow him/her to cry if required. Try to help your friend to find the best solution to come out of his/her present depressive state of mind. You may also take your friend to a counsellor.

Homeopathic Remedies For Psychiatric Disorders!

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Homeopathic Remedies For Psychiatric Disorders!

There are a number of psychological disorders such as bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia, and many more. The homeopathic cures for these disorders are given based on the patient’s condition and their history. These medicines need to be prescribed by a doctor only. However, the most common homeopathic cures for psychiatric disorders are as follows:

  1. Belladonna: Belladonna is a solution for delusions and should be given where there is restlessness, anxiety, and a desire to tear their own clothes. Such patients tend to spring out of bed and hurt people around him. They seem to be scared and see objects when they shut their eyes. The speech and actions of the patients are hasty.
  2. Hyoscyamus: This is a cure for intense insanity with a lot of excitation of the senses and abnormal impulses. Hyoscyamus is for patients who mostly imagine that they are being followed by some evil presence or that somebody is attempting to kill him. The patient keeps running from an imaginary enemy. They are very talkative and usually jumpy.
  3. Cimicifuga: In depressed states, this is one of our best cures. The patient is covered in a dull, dark and mental environment. He or she doubts people and items that seem unusual and unnatural.
  4. Stramonium: This cure is for patients who suffer from insanity and act in the most alarming manner. They usually have pipe dreams and see rats, mice, snakes and different creatures moving towards him or her.
  5. Sepia: Another cure is Sepia for the patients who have dull premonitions about their ailment, powerless memory, and feeling of weakness and vulnerability. They fear almost every situation, give up easily, and fear separation.
  6. Aurum metallicum: This is a cure for those with mental depression and sadness. They feel as if they have lost the companionship of their friends and are destined to stay alone. Their memory is frail, they are usually outraged, or feel the need to debate about everything.
  7. Ignatia: Most instances of depression at some time of the treatment require Ignatia. It suits women better while Arsenicum and Nux vomica are more appropriate for men. Ignatia is for patients who are always gloomy and tend to murmur with an inclination to sob. They conceal their sadness and are usually quiet.
  8. Sulfur: Sulfur is used as a cure for mental conditions that are broad and usually related to religious depression. They turn out to be on edge about their own life. They are additionally distracted and these patients will stop for quite a while to think about how words are spelled.
  9. Cannabis indica: This cure is for those who have heavenly vivid dreams and fantasies that cannot possibly exist in reality; however, they seem real to the patient. A moment appears to be a great many years, and a thing might seem to appear yards away. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.
