My husband gets angry a lot. He can't control it then later he feels sorry about it. While getting angry, he bites his lips, hurts himself, shouts a lot. What to do to control his anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He should not control his anger: he needs to control his actions when he angry. None of the feelings are to be controlled. They are to be expressed appropriately and given total catharsis. If not, it will find an organ in the body and bring about its malfunction to total dysfunction. Take him to a counselor and let him learn about anger management and about emotions. If he is not able to explain the anger or its provocation, then there could be childhood influences that have to looked into. When he turns his anger inwards, he will tend to hurt himself. Over a period of time this could lead to worse outcomes and may also become difficult to handle.

Hi, I'm a acute transient psychosis patient diagnosed at the age of 14. Initially my dosage was very high now im 25 years old consuming 500 mg Divalporate and 50 mg Quitapin plain. Im good when I do not have any relapses and very effective. I completed B. Tech Mechanical with 60 % and got placed in a company as well. Right now im doing software courses. I have few questions: 1 .When I will get rid of my medicine? 2. With these dosage if I can act like a average person so I wonder if im not consuming these medicines I will be more effective with work as well as studies but my relapse will happen in a year or sometime after 2 years. So, is there any alternative for these medicines? 3. I visited many doctors, some say you are suffering from psychosis disorder, some say bipolar or schizophrenia, some say sleeping problems. Why this many doubts in my case. So, what exactly im suffering from? Though I consumed many dosages initially but when I was reviewed with a doctor (Psychiatrist) He advised me the doctors are giving high dosage it can be reduced to minimum. Since then im in contact with that doctor and that is how my dosage is reduced but I want to know whether it can reduced or is there any need of these medicines. I suffer from relapses in a year, sometime 2 years. I will appreciate if any psychiatrist clears my doubts. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, Whether you have transient psychosis or bipolar or schizophrenia or sleeping problem, it is for the psychiatrist to diagnose and treat you properly. With this dose you are without relapse and acting like average person. Why do you want to lose those effects of drugs. Bipolar disorder is a relapsing disorder - sometimes with high overconfident mood sometimes with low self esteem sad mood. Both will be kept under control with valproate and quetiapine. During active phase you may need different dose and during normal maintenance phase you will need different dose. Leave the dose decision to the doctor. Each relapse at this age will stagnate your future - mania because you will lose your name, fame and money - depression you will your energy, interest and may lose life by suicide. Why do you want to have relapses? Continue valproate and quetiapine as prescribed.

Social Anxiety Disorder - How It Can Be Treated?

Social Anxiety Disorder - How It Can Be Treated?

While many of us may feel the pressure of appearing in large social gatherings, there are those who feel positively crippled at the very thought of showing up and interacting with many people at a time. There is a difference between the two scenarios where one may down to an introverted nature, and the other may be a symptom of a greater problem like social anxiety disorder. So what exactly is this condition all about? Here is everything you need to know!

Definition: By definition, social anxiety disorder is marked with many issues including the feeling of pressing self-consciousness, as well as anxiety, fear and embarrassment. All of these may be caused in the natural course of everyday interactions as well. It is a condition where the patient cannot cope with normal interactions without the support of medication and therapy.

Symptoms: There are a number of symptoms which can help in recognizing this condition. Constant worry and concern that one may end up humiliated on a public platform or while having the most mundane discussions at work or at a party, is one of the most pressing symptoms of this condition. Further, the patient will also be fearful of offending people he or she may be interacting with. Also, after an interaction or presence at a gathering, one may sit down to analyze the performance in great detail and be constantly critical of the same. Anxiety may also make the patient avoid any kind of social situation in extreme cases.

Causes: There are a number of things that may cause such a condition. The genetic makeup of the patient may make this an inherited condition that may happen if there were one or more people in the direct family who were suffering from this condition. Also, it may be caused due to changes in the amygdala, which is the part of the brain that controls one’s responses to fear. A person with an overactive amygdala may end up feeling more scared than normal of the most everyday things. Social anxiety disorder can also be a learned behaviour which may come up due to environmental issues like being reared by parents who have been severely overprotective of their children.

Treatment: There are many ways of treating this condition. To begin with, one can turn to psychotherapy. With the help of such therapy, the symptoms can be handled with the help of proper discussions and the programming of new ideas into the brain so that the fear and anxiety gradually recede. Cognitive behavioural therapy is one of the most favoured forms of therapy that psychiatrists consider in such cases. Medication like norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors may also be prescribed for the patient so as to control the amygdala. Further, one may also have to sue antidepressants prescribed by a medical practitioner so as to deal with the anxiety and fear on an everyday basis. Also, one may use beta blockers that affect the way adrenaline functions, by curbing the excess production of the same. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Schizophrenia is my diagnosis. I was left without a job for about the past 1 year or more. I have a job at this moment, I have taken Solian 50 mg regularly as it affects my concentration going without medication. I suffer from lack of good sleep, a Doctor suggested this as anxiety related problems. Constantly problems keep persisting in my mind which lead to my never being cheerful. I have also had a bad stomach which has been my weakness since school days. I had once nephritis. This often makes me feel lonely and despondent in life. I may put it as dullness persists in my life which takes away from me my energy to pursue any other interest in my life. All I need is to sleep well & concentrate on my work & feel fresh every morning, which I don't. I have begun taking a small drink every night since that as well helps me clear my stomach these days. Kindly suggest a remedy for myself.

Mentally Retarded Children - How Homeopathy Can Help?

Mentally Retarded Children - How Homeopathy Can Help?

If your child is suffering from mental retardation, homeopathy can help. A system of complementary medicine, homeopathy works on the dictum of ‘like treats like’. It is able to treat some of the toughest disorders and illnesses that allopathy finds hard to contain.

Mental retardation: Definition

  • Mental retardation is a blanket term for a pattern of persistently slow learning of basic motor and language milestones during childhood.
  • The adult manifests a below-normal intellectual capacity too.Such people have an intelligence quotient (IQ) of 70 or below.
  • They usually have developmental disabilities, developmental delay, or learning difficulties.

Signs

These signs should alert parents and spur them to see a doctor-

  1. If your child learns to sit up, to crawl, or to walk later than other children
  2. Trouble speaking and forming words, remembering things, and having trouble understanding social rules
  3. Trouble solving problems
  4. Trouble thinking logically

What needs to be made clear is that poor academic performance by itself is not a sign of mental retardation. It can be due to multifarious reasons like behaviour problems.

Causes of mental retardation

  1. Down syndrome and Fragile X syndrome are the most common genetic causes of mental retardation.
  2. Problems during pregnancy and birth
  3. Rubella infection in pregnant mother
  4. Iodine deficiency in mothers
  5. Malnutrition is a common cause of reduced intelligence in children.

Here are some homoeopathic remedies for the treatment of mental retardation. All you have to keep in mind is to treat this article as a guide and take medicines only under the guidance of a certified and trained homeopath.

  1. Abrotanum: This remedy works when your child shows marked emaciation of legs, has ageing, flabby, and loose skin, and he cannot hold up his head.
  2. Baryta carb: This homeopathy remedy is very effective in treating cretinism which is marked by a dwarfish appearance, mental retardation, with swollen abdomen, puffy face, enlarged glands, thick lips and short stature. Such children also show delayed milestones like learning to walk and speak.
  3. Calcarea carb: When your child presents symptoms like obesity, a chalky look with red face, large belly, large head, pale skin, soft bones, increased sweating, mental slowness, de¬layed skills-walking, talking, etc., this remedy is indicated.
  4. Medorrinum: The remedy is prescribed by homeopaths when your child presents symptoms like dullness and sluggishness, extreme forgetfulness, imbecility, impatience, irritability, difficulty in concentration etc. The remedy is very good for treating delusions, hallucinations, and illusions.

There are other things that you as a parent can do to help your intellectually disabled child like learn everything you can about intellectual disabilities. This way you can guide your child to live a near-normal life successfully. Also get your child involved in group activities like art classes, drawing etc. This will help him learn social skills and become more independent. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Why Ayurveda Is Important For Mental Health?

Why Ayurveda Is Important For Mental Health?

According to an Ayurvedic study of mental health, ‘rajas’, ‘satwa’ and ‘tama’ are essential qualities of one’s mind. ‘Satwa’ is essential for knowledge and reasoning, ‘Rajas’ initiates thoughts, whereas ‘Tama’ renders a soothing effect and serves to control overactive ‘satwa’ and ‘rajas’. However, equilibrium among these three is necessary for a healthy mind. A disruption in this balance results in anxiety, anger and even mental disorder. Environmental toxins, stress and information overload take a toll on one’s brain functioning on a daily basis. Along with exercises and a balanced diet, these few herbs can be used for restoring mental balance, thereby promoting mental wellbeing.

  1. Mulungu Bark- Mulungu calms your nerves, thus improving your mood and sleep. It even enhances brain function, helping to reduce anxiety.

  2. Bacopa- Also known as Brahmi, bacopa boosts memory and cognitive abilities. It also aids in lowering the production of stress hormone ‘cortisol’. It sustains the physical health of the brain cells, protecting the brain against ageing.

  3. Rhodiola Rosea- This medicinal herb consists of two powerful compounds called ‘Salidroside’ and ‘Rosin’. Salidroside is a strong antioxidant while Rosin shields against neurotoxicity (toxicity in the nervous system due to the exposure to artificial or natural toxins) by curbing inflammation of the neural cells. This enhances a better mental performance, reducing anxiety, stress and fatigue.

  4. Ziziphus Jujuba- Day-to-day chores over a long period of time can get extremely tiring and affect your physical as well as mental faculties. Ziziphus Jujuba encourages good sleep at night, thus restoring your mental health.

  5. Passiflora Incarnata (passion flower)- This herb acts as a natural sedative; thereby relieving anxiety, which is a primary reason for interrupted sleep.

  6. Scutellaria lateriflora (skullcap)– The anti-oxidant properties of this plant help deal with and alleviate stress levels, in the process, improving your mood and inducing sound sleep. It also helps treat inflammation of the brain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Hi there ~ I am glad for your question, and I appreciate that you have concerns about you mood swings. Many people feel happy and energized on certain days and less so on others. If these mood changes last for a week or more and are severe making it had for you to sleep or stay focused or go to work it may be a sign of bipolar disorder. It does not only damage and destroy relationships it may affect your grades and might make it hard to keep a job and can be dangerous at times. Many people with such changes have extreme changes in mood energy and behavior and may need medication help. Take care and have a lovely day

I got angry very soon on small things makes me to blast I tried to control myself a lot but nothing works my body gets stiff my brain gets totally hyper body gets warm and wen I get calm my head pain a lot.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The pain in the head is a clear indication of this being anger related. It seems that something has bothered you from your childhood. I am saying this without any knowledge of your age. That is why it is important to inform your age so that we can know the problem? s relevance in relation to that. Anyway, I think I am close to right to imagine that this anger may be concerned with some prenatal issue. The stiffening of the body associated with the anger is quite indicative. I suggest that you visit with a counselor along with your parents and ask them to take the history of your development, and information up to your grandparents in relation to any genetic contributions. In the meantime you can do something that is very effective, which is to expend the energy of anger so that you do not get that volatile? do some vigorous exercise every day. Yoga and meditation will also help to calm your mind and train the brain to moderate its responses. You must also express the anger in appropriate ways and give catharsis to the feeling and reduce the toll it takes on your body and mind. If you are a spiritual person you could hand over this anger to god and feel genuinely relieved, if you did it with faith. When you identify who is the cause, learn to forgive them and move on? forgiveness is more important for you than for the other person. This is a very important ingredient of love.

Hi, There are phases in our life when we go through the worse time! The emotional attachment with a person pulls us towards him or her which can't be avoided, of course, but we can get out of that hard situation when our heart gets broken, when we are left alone. We will have to try ourself to stand upright and walk again! Go for any stress-busters like your hobbies, chatting with your close friends, playing lively music, dancing, singing, etc. Medication: Take Schwabe's Bacopa Monerri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 2 weeks, then get back to me there after.

I am asheesh Kumar ma OCD K, I bimari see Pichhe 10 sal se grast hu ma bar 2 hath dhotaa hu man me 1 vichar bar at a hai.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Jaipur
Hi, The essential feature of this disorder is recurrent obsessional thoughts or compulsive acts. Obsessional thoughts are ideas, images or impulses that enter the individual's mind again and again in a stereotyped form. They are almost invariably distressing (because they are violent or obscene, or simply because they are perceived as senseless) and the sufferer often tries, unsuccessfully, to resist them. They are, however, recognized as the individual's own thoughts, even though they are involuntary and often repugnant. Compulsive acts or rituals are stereotyped behaviours that are repeated again and again. They are not inherently enjoyable, nor do they result in the completion of inherently useful tasks. Autonomic anxiety symptoms are often present, but distressing feelings of internal or psychic tension without obvious autonomic arousal are also common. There is a close relationship between obsessional symptoms, particularly obsessional thoughts, and depression. So, you need to be treated and for that have to visit a psychiatrist otherwise its severity with time will increases.
