Dear lybrate user, you are stressed out and you know that you are stressed out. The problem is that stress becomes more and more difficult to manage when we start accepting that particular situations and activities will bring back the stress in us. In your case it is talking with another person. So you know that when you talk to somebody you will have shivering and high heart rate and since you have already observed this thing about yourself-this has become a recurring phenomenon in your life. First of all dissociate yourself with this fact by again in again repeating this activity and situation. Don't avoid talking with people. In fact make it a habit to talk to as many people as possible. You will have initial difficulty but as and when you continue giving yourself the same situation the difficulty in managing that situation will keep on fading and one day it will completely vanish. This is the best way that you can manage and conquer your fears. Regards

No details of reports . See a consulting physician for proper clinical examination, all relevant investigations, and diagnosis of exact cause of disease. You may also see ENT Specialist for evidence of chronic pharyngitis, Tonsillitis or Septic Tonsillitis. Keep a thermometer and diary and record temp with a good thermometer whenever felt. See these doctors regularly for follow up. and advice.

Dear, I don't see the risk of amnesia in you at this age. Have you met with any accident or trauma? are you diagnosed with anxiety disorder or depression? busy and anxious people do forget many things, that does not mean they have amnesia. Therefore, usually, busy people keep everything in writing or appoint a personal assistant to help them out. Stress is also another factor behind forgetting. People also forget things which they feel unimportant. Therefore, I think, you do not have anything to worry. Still, if you insist, I can run a series of memory related tests to assess your memory. First screening test will be through mobile. Let me know if you are willing. Take care.

Depression - How Unani Therapy Can Help Treat It?

Depression - How Unani Therapy Can Help Treat It?

Depression is a common, debilitating, life-threatening and serious mood disorder with an increased morbidity and mortality that affects more than 300 million individuals worldwide. It interferes with an individual’s thoughts, behavior and feelings, affects a person’s ability to work and form relationships and is responsible for destroying the overall quality of life. It is the fourth leading cause of disability, which contributes a major role in increasing the overall global burden of disease. In case, left untreated it can also lead to suicidal tendencies in a person and presently, is responsible for 850,000 deaths every year. 

It is characterized by the change in mood, lack of interest in surroundings and enjoyment, feeling of sadness, gloominess or melancholy. Many depressed individual experience anxiety symptoms, disturbed sleep, poor concentration, feelings of guilt or low self-worth and increased or decreased appetite, and may have even medically unexplained symptoms. Mental depression is classified into unipolar and bipolar depression. Unipolar depression is more common and accounts nearly 75% of cases, in which mood swings are always in the same direction. It is accompanied by symptoms of anxiety and agitation, shows a non- familial pattern and closely related to stressful life events. Bipolar depression is less common (about 25% of cases) which shows a familial pattern, appears in early adulthood and usually have no relation with external stress.

Over a period of time more and more people are getting affected with it, therefore to deal with such an illness what is required is boosting the body’s self-preservation power which Unani medicine strongly focuses on.

Know when to seek medical help
The first step to treat any condition is to acknowledge that problem exists when the signs are noticed. The most prominent symptoms of depression are developing a strong sense of loss, loss of energy, inexplicable sadness, fatigue and lack of interest about the things happening around. In the majority of depression cases, lack of sleep or a disturbed sleep is also another striking symptom. Even, unexplained physical problems like headaches or back pain, weight loss, reduced appetite, restlessness, feeling agitated all the time are also very common symptoms of depression.

Identifying the factors causing the issue
Determining any specific factors that trigger depression in one is impossible. But it is definitely stress and anxiety that gives rise to this emotional illness. A certain amount of stress is natural in everyone’s life. But when the pressure of matching with one’s ambition, aptitude and inertia increase excessively and the person fails to cope with his own and others’ expectations, then the emotional crisis gives birth to depression.

How Unani helps in combating depression?
According to Unani medicine, illness is natural processes, and their symptoms are nothing but the reaction of the body to them. In Unani medicine, it is believed that the body has its own self-preservation power that helps in maintaining a balance between its humor, such as blood, yellow bile, phlegm, etc., it facilitates the body to strengthen and regain its natural balance.

And when it comes to treating depression with Unani, it works in three steps. The first is distracting the mind through various distractive methods and adaptive changes, then excreting the problems caused by mental illness and lastly strengthening the mind as well as the heart through proper drug therapy, if necessary, diet therapy and regimental therapy also. The principles of treatment based upon which depression is treated by the Unani physicians are very much testified by the modern medicine for its usefulness as well as efficacy.

When the intense sadness due to depression continues to last for days to weeks and sometimes months, it can take a toll on your day to day life, interrupting you from living normally and happily. Remember, depression is caused due to certain changes in the brain chemistry which requires immediate medical attention. And since, Unani aims towards aiding the natural processes of the body without causing any side-effects, treating depression with Unani can be advantageous, no doubt. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My wife aged 65 years is suffering from conversion disorder on alternate days. Previously she was under treatment of psychiatrists for her depressive episode. But finally it was observed that she didn't require any antipsychotic medicines and she was advised for psychotherapy & physiotherapy. She is now dead against visiting any psychologist or psychiatrist. On alternate days she behaves in a depressive mood, but otherwise she remains quite normal in my family. Her normal diet has reduced & she doesn't want to go outside. Please advise remedies to get her normal as earlier.

Very strongly recommend not to attend to her whims and fancies. Another name for conversion disorder is attention seeking behavior. So long as you continue to attend to her undesirable behavior, she will never come out of it. Stop bothering about it while secretly keeping an eye on her, see hoe she will improve. You are the doctor here who has to cure her!
