  7. You experience rapid heart beats
  8. Breathlessness

Homeopathy offers promising treatments for reducing anxiety

Some of the treatment methods are mentioned below

  1. Aconite: Your doctor may suggest you this medicine if you show symptoms of breathing trouble or you experience rapid heartbeats or if the complexion of your face changes. This is also recommended in case of panic attacks and nervousness.
  2. Lycopodium: This is effective in reducing anxiety if the cause of your anxiousness is emotional stress and also if you show symptoms of irritation, diarrhea or fear of claustrophobic situations.
  3. Phosphorus: This medicine is recommended if you suffer from emotional stress and show symptoms of extreme and uncontrolled anger.
  4. Pulsatilla: This is a medicine, which may be advised to you if you suffer from anxiety due to emotional insecurity.

  6. Arsenic album: Your doctor may advice you this medicine if you show symptoms of restlessness or if your anxiety is due to financial insecurity.

Homeopathic treatment for anxiety is very effective since it treats your problem after examining the root cause of your anxiety. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopathy and ask a free question.

Twice in week I have an irresistible urge to check net about females breast. I know its a milk feeding organ which woman develop during stages of puberty. My obsession has become a distraction. And I am unable to concentrate. What would happen if I get married and gave birth to a female child. What will the child think of his dad. How to treat it, please tell.

Attraction to female breasts is inherently built into male psychology so its not much of a wrong thing. But you should concentrate on your work and do not watch porn. Its more like addiction although there is nothing wrong in watching porn stuff. Once you get married and as your age increases with responsibilities coming in most of these urges will go away.

I am a fully grown up 19 year old guy. I always feel insecure in public generally when I am alone. It's like that I am afraid to everyone around. I feel delicate. I think anyone can hurt me. I feel like a coward. Whenever I take a step away from home my mind get filled by anxiety. I shall try to explain it through an example. Whenever I am traveling alone in a train I am afraid. There are thoughts running in mind like "what if somebody take my seat from me or he has already taken and won't be ready to give it to me. What if somebody will do anything which bothers me and I surely would not be able to stop him" Not only I think these but some of them has already happened to me. Once I switched off a light in train but a man from next seat said in a rude way "you can't switch off it until the train starts running" Why do I agree with him? I am emotionally very very weak.

Dear Lybrate User, I can imagine how difficult it must be for you to venture out of your house. I sense that, your upbringing and the situations at home when you were growing up are the cause of this insecurity. This needs further exploration. Please talk to your school/college Counsellor about it. If you do not have a Counsellor in the school, then talk to your parents and take an appointment with Counsellor in Lucknow or take an appointment with online Counsellors for audio sessions. The Counsellor will help you to understand what is happening to you and will also help you to cope up iin various situations. All the best.

I am 39 years old and want to quit alcohol. Please guide and suggest some medicine. Thanks.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Dearlybrate-user, in many ways, introversion is blessing. Introversion is creativity. Introversion boosts creativity and you, being alone and not liking to visit friends etc is blessing in that way. You have potential and utilize it positively. This behavior is never a sign of aging. Take care.

How can I save myself from over anxiety? What measures should I take to reduce it without any medicine?

How can I save myself from over anxiety? What measures should I take to reduce it without any medicine?
Your hormones may being acting up at this age. Even so, it is a good time to investigate if there are any childhood factors that are contributing to this situation. Take your parents and meet with a counselor and identify that. Your fear will gradually lead to anxiety and compulsive behaviors. Before it gets out of control and difficult to deal with seek help earlier, especially about this fear. If the fear is of recent origin, you could perhaps identify it and deal with it. But if it is from a long past, then much work has to be done to sort that out. If medication is required please cooperate with both the therapies to get the best results. It is possible to work it out without medication, if you cooperate with the therapy. Sometimes this kind of nervousness could be genetic too. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again.

You have good concentration. You shift your interest into learning new things that help you clear exams. Practice learning organize way/ Make a graph of priority areas in your syllabus and concentrate and learn. Practice answering question papers of previous years and time it be serious. Be quiet in mind and all others will have the same in their mind. Be natural and face in your own words. For public speaking you practice for few times. You will master. Just do it. You think of strength and relax. Meditate and keep deep mental poise.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You become emotional after speaking rudely to any person whether he is right or wrong. In my opinion there is nothing to worry. You are actual ideal human being with lot of sympathy and empathy. I suggest you to go ahead and be like this. You are bound to change in future, but keep your present trait intact. It will help you in future. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Children learn from training. School teachers are trained for imparting behavioral training to children. In that sense, you don't have to worry. Teachers should look after your child. You should be a better parent at your home. Your child needs domestic behavior modification which parents are entrusted with. I suggest you for a parental counseling so that I can teach you how to modify your child's behavior. Take care.
