Sleep Paralysis...
Waking Up And Being Unable To Move
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night terrified and been unable to move?
Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon that occurs when a person wakes up from a sleep being unable to move, speak, or react.
It usually occurs as a person is about to fall asleep or as they are about to wake up out of sleep, and is usually accompanied with breathing difficulties.
This may not sound like a big deal for those who haven?t experienced it, but it can be terrifying at times.
You are totally paralyzed and unable to wake yourself up.
When you are in a state of paralysis,it is the brains natural response to think that you are under attack, so your brain naturally enters into a state of ?flight? mode.
Sometimes, sleep paralysis is accompanied by hallucinations or the feeling that there is an intruder in the room.
Some people even claim to sense the presence of demonic entities that sit on their chest, or aliens that stand over top of them.
In fact, the Chinese used to call this experience ?Gui Ya? which means ?ghost pressure?, and they believed that a ghost would come sit on your chest as you sleep and paralyze you.
What is the scientific reason reason this is happening?
Well, there isn?t any confirmed theory out there yet.
The most plausible scientific explanation is that it is thought to occur when the mind wakes up out of REM sleep while the body is still in a state of atonia to prevent sleepers from acting out their dreams.
I would agree with this for the most part, but who have experienced sleep paralysis with eyes open as one was sitting up in bed after waking up from a sleep, so one know for a fact my brain was not in a REM state of sleep because one could already been awake for several minutes.
In this notification, we will look at what to do to stay calm during sleep paralysis, how to prevent it from happening, and how to use it to your own spiritual advantage.
What to do when you can?t move
I have had a great deal of experiences with sleep paralysis, and have now reached a point where it no longer bothers one anymore.
The first time it happened to someone, One can tried to fight it and forcefully wake myself up from it.
This only caused by ones fear and anxiety and was completely ineffective.
If you wake up and realize you are in a state of sleep paralysis, don?t resist it.
The minute you resist it, you will start freaking out.
Accept it, and treat it as an opportunity to practice patience and peace of mind.
Conscious breathing really helps keeping your mind from entering freak-out mode.
Breathe in slowly and consciously, and exhale slowly and consciously.
Don?t panic.
Make it your mission when you are in sleep paralysis to be as calm as you can, and treat it as a chance to be fully present within your body.
Enter a meditative state of mind, and it will shortly pass with time.

There have been times where one have heard voices in ear while being paralyzed, but One remained calm by meditating and practicing conscious breathing.
It?s kind of like taking psychedelic drugs.
You can give yourself a bad experience by what you choose to think about and where you allow your mind to wander.
It can only have power over you if you give it your power.
Keep your attention inside your breath.
Pretend that you chose you would experience sleep paralysis at that time, and full embrace the experience with peace of mind.
Prayer has also brought many people peace during scary experiences of sleep paralysis, so if you feel comfortable calling out to God, that will only help bring you more comfort.
Preventing sleep paralysis
There are several factors that have been identified as increasing your chances of experiencing sleep paralysis.
Some of these include physical fatigue, under-sleeping, and erratic sleep schedule,stress, and an overuse of stimulants.
For me personally, oversleeping is what has caused most of my sleep paralysis experiences.
Most of the happen when one choose to go back to sleep even when one can rested, or when one take a nap throughout the day.
So a big way to prevent paralysis from happening is to have a proper sleep schedule.
Healthier sleep habits is the best thing you can do to avoid this experience.
Another big way to prevent sleep paralysis is to not sleep in supine position.
This is what supine position looks like:
When you sleep flat on your back in supine position, your soft palate is more likely to collapse and obstruct your breathing.
This causes you to wake up out of deep sleep while your body is still in a state of atonia from REM sleep.
Sleeping on your stomach (in prone position) or on your side is a good way to prevent this from happening.
Using sleep paralysis to your spiritual advantage
Sleep paralysis can be a burden for some, and an opportunity for others.
Not only can you treat it as a test to see how present and calm you can become,you can also use it a chance to try to initiate an out-of-body experience or a lucid dream.
Remember, some part of you remains in REM sleep while your waking mind is alert and attentive.  What if this REM atonia is a sort of toolbox that enables you to use your will, intention, and visualization to leave your body and enter into new worlds?

Affirm to yourself that you are going to have an out-of-body experience, and visualize yourself hovering over top of your own body.
Feel yourself starting to leave your body, and stay calm in your mind knowing that you will soon be outside of your body.
Many people claim that they try to induce sleep paralysis on purpose as one of the beginning stages of astral travel.
Don?t think if yourself as a victim to a scary experience.
Think of yourself as a pioneer on the edge of a world of lucid dreams and astral travel and create the experience you want for yourself.  Science tells us that we are literally at the brink of the world of sleep and dreams and the world of waking life.
Why not use it to your spiritual advantage and experiment a little bit?
The truth is, there is really nothing to be scared of.
Nobody has ever died or been injured from being in sleep paralysis,and it usually doesn?t last for more than 30 seconds.
Work with it, practice presence, clean up your sleep schedule, and if you feel like you?re up to it, use is as a launching pad for the exploration of other dimensions.

From the past 3 months he is having headache and sometimes the problem of migraine but he don't want to consult a doctor so please help.

Hello,It's important to figure out what type of headache is causing your pain. If we know your headache type,we can treat it correctly. I think you are suffering from tension headache, the most common type, feel like a constant ache or pressure around the head, especially at the temples or back of the head and neck. Take BC No. 12, 5 tabs twice daily and kali phos 6x, 5 tabs at bed time. Alpha HA, 15 drops with warm water twice daily. Revert me after 15 days.

Because the effects of epilepsy are more serious than the side effects of its medicines that's why taking medication is a better acceptable solution

This is correct tab and dose. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Dear Nawal, It is really sad to see your father dementing. Please let me know the type of dementia CMC or RINPAS diagnosed him. He is too young to get Alzheimer's type of dementia. If we investigate 10 persons, only one of them will have a treatable cause. Unfortunately it looks your father did not have a treatable cause. So we may not be able to bring him back to his original self. But there are few cholinesterase inhibitor kind of drugs available. They at least stop further deterioration of dementia. The care takers need counselling to prevent burn out. Few day care and in house care help them to preserve whatever brain function that are not lost. Please don't spend much money and time in taking him to place to place. Instead spend that money for the care taker or rehabilitation places.

Hopefully this one use may not do any harm. But it looks like you have learned a lesson and will no longer use this substance. There are many controversial claims about marijuana, and we need to wait until the dust settles to finally know the entire truth. The medicinal uses have been proven to a large extent and the use of this substance must be limited to that prescription only. Until then please do not use it at all. The sensation of numbness and perception of reduction in touch sensation may be connected but if you do not indulge in marijuana, it should disappear without much ado. I hope you are one who exercises regularly anyway because that is always good for your health and circulation. So don't worry too much and only if this sensory deprivation persists you will need to meet a doctor.

I had sinus or migraine as one side face ache? Severe one sided face ache frequently what is it cure?

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM, Fellowship in palliative medicine, certificate in interventional pain management, Multidisciplinary pain management course
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
One sided facial pain is not due to migraine. It can be due to: 1. Tooth infection: Consult a dentist first to rule out dental pathology as cause of facial pain. 2. Sinusitis: Associated nasal congestion, features of upper respiratory infections are present. ENT consultation is needed. 3. Trigeminal Neuralgia: Sharp,shooting electric shock like pain in bursts felt along particular part of face It is easily relieved with medication and if needed intervention like Gasserian ganglion block. Consult a pain specialist for this. 4. Idiopathic facial pain: This condition is simply facial pain without any reason. This can be managed by medication and if needed injection. Consult a pain specialist for this. For detailed evaluation and treatment accordingly consult with a pain specialist.
