Ways To Manage Compulsive Sexual Behaviour!

One of the emerging psychiatric disorder that has significant medical and psychiatric consequences is compulsive sexual behaviour or hypersexuality, is an obsession with sexual thoughts in which people cannot manage their sexual behaviour. It may involve a commonly enjoyable sexual experience as self-stimulation which becomes an obsession. The person suffering from the condition may also get involved in sexual behaviours that are outside the bounds of commonly accepted conduct like paying for sex or having extramarital affairs.

Untreated compulsive sexual behaviour damages one’s self-esteem, health, job, relationships and career. However, with treatment and self-help,
one can manage compulsive sexual behaviour and learn to manage one’s urge. Males are more likely to be unfaithful than females because they have stronger sexual impulses and weaker self-control. Compulsive sexual behaviour symptoms vary in type and severity. During intense sexual impulses, one feels as if they're beyond control. This is the first and the most common symptom as the patient uses compulsive sexual behaviour as an escape route for problems like loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress. One has trouble establishing and maintaining emotional closeness, even if one is married or in a committed relationship.

The treatment for compulsive sexual behaviour involves psychotherapy and medications. A primary goal of treatment is to help one manage urges and reduce excessive behaviours while maintaining healthy sexual activities. If one has compulsive sexual behaviour, one may need treatment for mental health condition. People with compulsive sexual behaviour often have alcohol or drug abuse problems or a mood disorder such as depression.

Counselling sessions can help one learn how to manage one’s compulsive sexual behaviour. Intensive treatment programs for compulsive sexual behaviours focus on identification of core triggers and beliefs about sexual addiction. It assists in development of healthier choices and coping skills to minimize urges and deal with the preoccupation of sexual addiction. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can prove to be very useful as it focuses on increasing one’s awareness of unconscious thoughts and behaviours, and developing new insights into their motivations. Resolving conflicts using this therapy is also recommended. The other kind of treatment program is cognitive behavioural therapy. This therapy helps one to identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviours and replace them with healthy, positive ones. Family therapy and couples therapy may restore trust, minimize shame and guilt thus establishing a healthy sexual relationship between partners.

Medications include anti-depressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, mood stabilizers and anti-androgens have also been used to treat compulsive sexual behaviour. Anti-androgens are prescribed as it reduces the biological effects of sex hormones in men thus reducing sexual urges. Luteinizing hormone is also prescribed as it reduces obsessive sexual thoughts by reducing the production of testosterone. Anti-seizure medications, naltrexone, and medications which decrease male hormones have been found to decrease the compulsive urges and impulses associated with sexual addictions for some sufferers. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dissociation Disorder - Know More About This Disease!

Dissociation Disorder - Know More About This Disease!

Dissociative disorder can be described as a mental disorder that involves experiences of disconnection and a lack of continuity between the thoughts and memories of a person including a lack of awareness of the surroundings, actions and even identity. People who are suffering from dissociative disorder generally escape reality in such an extreme way that they lose focus of what is happening around them which causes involuntary and unhealthy actions that may hamper the normal way of life.

Studies have found that dissociative disorder is a result of a trauma that the person may have encountered prior to the symptoms and tries to keep the difficult memories related to that incident away from their mind. Symptoms of dissociative disorder range from amnesia to even alternate identities depending heavily on the type of dissociative disorder that the person is suffering from. Research has shown that stress is a major factor in inducing the disorder. Stress worsens the symptoms and makes the disorder obvious.

There are a number of treatments for dissociative disorder. It ranges from talk therapy or psychotherapy to medications. However, it must be noted that treating dissociative disorder is difficult and research and studies have tried to learn new and approved ways to cope with it to lead a healthy, productive life on a daily basis.

Causes of dissociative disorder

To know more about dissociative disorder let's learn about the causes of the disorder. Medical research over the years has been able to delve deep into the causes associated with dissociative disorder. The results have concluded that dissociative disorder develops in an individual as a way to cope with a major trauma that he/she may have experienced in their life. The disorder is often seen to develop in a child who has been subjected to years and years of physical abuse along with sexual and emotional abuse. In many cases, a toxic home environment is responsible for the above said abuses also results in a dissociative disorder. Moreover, the stress of war on a soldier or the effects of a natural disaster on an individual can also induce dissociative disorder.

 

Childhood is an important time for the development of personality. Children are more prone to emotions than a grown-up. So even if the abuse is happening on someone else, a child will pick up on it and develop their personality around it. A child may learn to dissociate in order to cope with the traumatic situation. And as a result, he employs that same dissociation in the latter part of their life to endure any traumatic situation or anything that triggers similar memories.

It is always advised to take help from a professional if the situation gets out of control. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello, thank you for informing me about your problem, Constipation is a condition of the digestive system where an individual has hard feces that are difficult to expel. In most cases, this occurs because the colon has absorbed too much water from the food that is in the colon. The slower the food moves through the digestive tract, the more water the colon will absorb from it. Consequently, the feces become dry and hard. When this happens, emptying the bowels can become very painful. This article will cover the main causes of constipation and how it can be treated and prevented. Fast facts on constipation Here are some key points about constipation. More detail and supporting information is in the main article. * Constipation generally occurs because too much water is absorbed from food * Causes of constipation include physical inactivity, certain medications, and aging * Some cases of constipation can be relieved by lifestyle changes * Laxatives should only be used as a last resort Symptoms A diet that contains a good quantity of fiber helps prevent constipation. The main symptoms of constipation are increased difficulty and straining when passing stools. Passing fewer stools than usual can be a sign of constipation. Other symptoms include: * stomach ache * stomach cramps * feeling bloated and nauseous * losing appetite Causes Constipation happens when the colon absorbs too much water. This can occur if the muscles in the colon are contracting slowly or poorly, causing the stool to move too slowly and lose more water. These are the most common causes of constipation: 1) Lack of fiber in the diet People whose diets include a good quantity of fiber are significantly less likely to suffer from constipation. It is important to consume foods rich in fiber such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Fiber promotes bowel movements and prevents constipation. Foods that are low in fiber include high-fat foods, such as cheese, meat, and eggs. 2) Physical inactivity Constipation can occur if someone becomes too physically inactive. This is especially the case in older adults. For individuals who have been bedridden for a long time, perhaps for several days or weeks, their risk of having constipation is significantly increased. Experts are not sure why. Some believe that physical activity keeps the metabolism high, making the processes in the body happen more rapidly. Older adults tend to have a more sedentary life compared with younger people and are therefore at higher risk of constipation. Physically active people are much less likely to become constipated than inactive people. 3) Medications The most common medications to cause constipation are: * narcotic (opioid) pain drugs including codeine (Tylenol), oxycodone (Percocet), and hydromorphone (Dilaudid) * antidepressants including amitriptyline (Elavil) and imipramine (Tofranil) * anticonvulsants including phenytoin (Dilantin) and carbamazepine (Tegretol) iron supplements * calcium channel blocking drugs including diltiazem (Cardizem) and nifedipine (Procardia) * aluminum-containing antacids including Amphojel and Basaljel * diuretics including chlorothiazide (Diuril) 4) Milk Some people become constipated when they consume milk and dairy products. 5) Irritable bowel syndrome People who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) get constipation much more frequently, compared with the rest of the population. 6) Pregnancy Pregnancy brings about hormonal changes that can make a woman more susceptible to constipation. Also, the uterus may compress the intestine, slowing down the passage of food. 7) Aging As a person gets older, the metabolism slows down, resulting in less intestinal activity. The muscles in the digestive tract do not work as well as they used to. 8) Changes in routine When a person travels, their normal routine changes. This can affect the digestive system, which sometimes results in constipation. Meals are eaten at different times, or a person might go to bed, get up, and go to the toilet at different times. All these changes can raise the risk of constipation. 9) Overuse of laxatives Some people believe a person should go to the toilet at least once a day - this is not true. However, to make sure this happens, some people self-medicate with laxatives. Laxatives are effective at helping bowel movements. However, using them regularly allows the body to get used to their action and gradually the dose needs to increase to get the same effect. Laxatives can be habit-forming. When a person becomes dependent on them, there is a significant risk of constipation when they are stopped. 10) Not going to the toilet when needed If individuals ignore the urge to have a bowel movement, the urge can gradually go away until the individual no longer feels the need to go. The longer it is delayed, the drier and harder the stool will become. 11) Not drinking enough water If constipation is already present, drinking more liquids might not relieve it. However, regularly drinking plenty of water reduces the risk of constipation. Many sodas and drinks contain caffeine which can cause dehydration and worsen constipation. Alcohol also dehydrates the body and should be avoided by individuals who are constipated or very susceptible to constipation. 12) Problems with the colon or rectum Tumors can compress or restrict the passages and cause constipation. Also, scar tissue, diverticulosis, and abnormal narrowing of the colon or rectum, known as colorectal stricture. People with Hirschsprung disease are susceptible to constipation (a birth defect in which some nerve cells are absent in the large intestine). 13) Some diseases and conditions Diseases that tend to slow down the movement of feces through the colon, rectum, or anus can cause constipation. These include the following: * Neurological disorders: Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, stroke, spinal cord injuries, and chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction can lead to constipation. * Endocrine and metabolic conditions: Uremia, diabetes, hypercalcemia, poor glycemic control, and hypothyroidism. * Systemic diseases: These are diseases that affect a number of organs and tissues, or affect the body as a whole, they include lupus, scleroderma, amyloidosis. * Cancer: Constipation occurs in people with cancer, mainly due to pain medications and chemotherapy. Also, if a tumor blocks or squeezes the digestive system. Treatment In the majority of cases, constipation resolves itself without any treatment or risk to health. The treatment of recurring constipation can include lifestyle changes such as doing more exercise, eating more fiber, and drinking more water. Usually, laxatives will successfully treat most cases of constipation - but should be used with care and only when necessary. In more difficult cases, the person may need a prescription medication. It is important to understand the cause of constipation - there could be an underlying illness or condition. Some people with recurring constipation use a daily diary where they record their bowel movements, stool characteristics, and other factors that may help both the doctor and patient devise the best treatment. Some gastroenterologists comment that there are people who do not allocate enough time for their defecation. Set aside enough time to allow your toilet visit to be unstressed and uninterrupted, and do not ignore an urge to have a bowel movement. OTC laxatives Only use these laxatives as a last resort: * Stimulants: These make the muscles in the intestines contract rhythmically. These include Correctol, Dulcolax, and Senokot. * Lubricants: These help the stool move down the colon more easily. These include mineral oil and Fleet. * Stool softeners: These moisten the stool. Stool softeners include Colace and Surfak. * Fiber supplements: These are perhaps the safest laxatives. They are also called bulk laxatives. They include FiberCon, Metamucil, Konsyl, Serutan, and Citrucel and should be taken with plenty of water. If you want to buy bulk laxatives, then there is an excellent selection online with thousands of customer reviews. * Osmotics: These facilitate the movement of fluids through the colon. These include Cephulac, Sorbitol, and Miralax. * Saline laxatives: These draw water into the colon and include milk of magnesia. * Chloride channel activators: These require a prescription and include lubiprostone (Amitiza). * 5-HT-4 agonists: They increase the secretion of fluid in the intestines and speed up the rate at which food passes through the colon. They include Prucalopride. If the constipation does not respond to any treatment, as a last resort, surgery to remove part of the colon may be undertaken. In the procedure, the segment of the anal sphincter or rectum that causes the constipation is removed. Natural remedies There are a few ways to ease the symptoms of constipation without using medication. These include: * Increasing fiber intake: People with constipation should eat between 18 and 30 grams (g) of fiber every day. Fresh fruits and vegetables and fortified cereals have high fiber content. * Drinking water: Consuming lots of water can help to rehydrate the body. * Bulking agents: Adding these to your diet can help soften stools and make them easier to pass. Examples of bulking agents include wheat bran. * Regular exercise: This can help to make bodily processes more regular, including the passing of stools. * Routine: Having a place and time of day where you can put aside time to visit the bathroom without forcing a stool. * Avoiding holding in stools: Responding to your body's natural urges to pass stools when they happen is key to reducing the impact of constipation. * Elevate your feet: Place your feet short platform, such as a step, and make sure the knees are above hip-level while passing stools. This can reduce constipation. * Homeopathic remedies: While their effectiveness is disputed, some studies have suggested that treatments for constipation offered by homeopathic doctors can be successful. These include calcarea carbonica, nux vomica, silica, bryonia, and lycopodium. Speak with your doctor about the best course of action if symptoms are not responding to natural or home remedies. Complications Constipation on its own can be uncomfortable but not life-threatening. However, severe constipation can develop into more serious conditions, including: * rectal bleeding after continually straining to pass stools * anal fissure, or a small tear around the anus * hemorrhoids, or swollen, inflamed blood vessels of veins in the rectum * faecal impaction, in which dried stools collect in the anus and rectum, leading to an obstruction in the path stool would take to leave the body Dealing with constipation before it becomes one of these conditions can prevent further discomfort.

Eart palpitations are abnormal or irregular heartbeats that cause a thumping or fluttering feeling in your chest — sometimes also described as "missing a beat. Palpitations can occur with heart rates that are too rapid or too slow. They can be triggered by stress, exercise, diet, medication and sometimes by a medical condition. Although heart palpitations can be a worrisome or a strange experience, they're usually harmless. In most cases, it's possible to find the cause and address it in order to reduce palpitations. Rest and take a break. Some people experience heart palpitations due to physical overexertion or being too active; however, an increased heart rate from exercise or anxiety (called tachycardia) is not the same as palpitations. Both can happen at the same time, although palpitations are defined best as unusual heart beats, not just fast heart beats. If your palpitations seem to be sometimes triggered by exercise, then stop what you're doing and rest for five to 10 minutes and catch your breath. Alternatively, reduce your exertions or change your exercise to something less strenuous. Walk instead of jogging, for example. Lift smaller weights. Gently tread water in the pool instead of doing strokes. Resting heart rates vary between people, but it's typically between 60 and 100 beats per minute. Palpitations can occur above, below or within the normal heart beat range. Reduce your stress/anxiety. Moderate-to-high levels of stress and anxiety are relatively common triggers for heart palpitations due to the release of too much "stress hormones" into the bloodstream. Thus, you may be able to prevent or reduce your palpitations by managing how you react or respond to stressful situations. Stress-relieving techniques like yoga, tai chi, deep breathing, visualization, meditation, biofeedback and aromatherapy are all helpful for promoting relaxation and better heart health. Ask at your local gym, community center, church or health clinic about joining a yoga or tai chi class. Taking deep breaths can naturally lower your heart rate and reduce the occurrence of heart palpitations, especially if you practice positive visualizations or guided imagery. Buy some relaxing aromatherapy candles (lavender scented, for example) and light them in the evenings prior to going to bed. Don't forget to get enough sleep — at least eight hours per night, although some people need a little more. A chronic lack of sleep can lead to anxiety and heart palpitations. Remove yourself from stressful situations, such as arguments. Quit focusing on financial problems. Stop watching scary movies or shows. Avoid consuming stimulants. There are a number of substances that affect your central nervous system (CNS) and can trigger heart palpitations, including alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, illicit drugs (such as cocaine and amphetamines) and some over-the-counter medications (particularly cold and cough medicines. Thus, if you're having periodic heart palpitations, consider what you're putting into your body on a regular basis, because it could very likely be the cause. Vagal maneuvers are simple actions that you can do at home to affect your vagus nerve, which is the primary one that regulates your heart rate.] Vagal maneuvers can slow your heart rate down and stop palpitations within seconds if done correctly. The Valsalva technique involves holding your breath and bearing down as if you're having a bowel movement for about 15– 20 seconds — it increases your intrathoracic pressure and stimulates the vagus nerve. The Valsalva technique can change the rhythm of electrical impulses in your heart, help your heart rate return to normal and reduce palpitations. The Valsalva maneuver shouldn't be done if you have heart disease or are advanced in age, as it may increase the risk of stroke. Activate your diving reflex. The diving reflex gets activated when your head or face gets cold for more than a few seconds — your heart rate slows down to reduce blood flow in an attempt to survive, which is helpful when submerged in cold water. To trigger this survival reflex, place very cold water or an ice pack against your face for about 10 seconds. Your heart rate and palpitations should reduce pretty quickly. Dip your face or submerge your head in cold water. Put a wet face cloth in the freezer for 30 minutes then press it against your face. Alternatively, drinking a glass of very cold water will cool the hard palate of your upper mouth and also mildly trigger the diving reflex. Vagal maneuvers are simple and generally quite safe to do, but they should be done as soon as you realize you're experiencing palpitations for best results. Do not attempt vagal maneuvers while standing — they can sometimes cause dizziness and fainting. Ry coughing a bunch of times. You can also try coughing forcefully (or clearing your throat) multiple times in efforts to move your diaphragm, increase intra-thoracic pressure, and stimulate your vagus nerve. In essence, coughing creates the same physiological effects as bearing down (the Valsalva technique), but some people may find it easier to perform. When coughing, it must be forceful enough and sustained — a single, light cough won't likely trigger a vagal response. Make sure to completely swallow any food you're eating or beverages you're drinking in order to prevent the risk of choking. If you're unsure, ask your doctor for a demonstration of vagal maneuvers.
