Hi, the best advise for you would be that you take him to a psychologist - where he can be treated for this phobia by using behavioral technique called systematic desensitization. Here is a brief summary of the steps you will go through in desensitizing yourself: step 1. Anxiety hierarchy. First, you will construct an anxiety hierarchy, which is a list of those situations involved in and leading up to your target situation ranked in order from the lease disturbing to the most disturbing. Step 2. Relaxation training. Then you will train yourself in deep muscle relaxation. Step 3. Desensitization sessions. You will then go through a series of desensitization sessions. At the beginning of a session, using what you've learned from your deep muscle relaxation training (to be explained), you will relax. You will then imagine a scene representing the weakest item on your hierarchy while maintaining your relaxed state. A given step on your anxiety hierarchy must be repeatedly imagined until you no longer exhibit anxiety at the presentation of it. You will then imagine the next higher anxiety-producing step, and so on. Thus, the anxiety cues are gradually decreased until you can present the most frightening step without feeling any anxiety whatsoever.

I have quit antidepressant called mirtazapine 7.5 mg 3 months ago. But now again symptoms has begun and I restarted taking it and again start to feel fresh. But I am mainly concern with weight gain after restarting it. Previously I have gained lot of weight on taking it. And able to loose few after quitting it. Whether on restarting mirtaz I will again gain lot of weight? My maximum dosage of mirtaz was 30 mg .on restarting I have taken 7.5 mg. How much weight does it increase normally on restarting mirtazapine 7.5 mg.

You cannot calculate weight gain on the basis of dosage or when you restarted. Neither should you stop or restart medication without the doctor's consent and consultation. It is, in fact, dangerous. The weight gain is a side effect but at least the depression gets taken care of. Anyway, do talk to the doctor about your concerns but do not self-regulate the medication at any cost. Additionally, you can follow some of these instructions, which includes exercise mandatorily: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and with your doctor and you must cooperate with both to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am 17 year old m unable to concentrate in my studies I am so disturbed mentally.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, you will feel like you are feeling right now due to your age and the hormonal imbalances. It may have nothing to do with mental disturbance unless there are other factors you have not mentioned. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

How Is Stress Affecting Your Hormones And Your Weight Loss?

How Is Stress Affecting Your Hormones And Your Weight Loss?

Stress has become an unavoidable and prominent part of our daily lives since we have so much going on all the time- work pressure, money matters, relationships, family affairs etc. When you are under a lot of stress, a hormone in the body known as cortisol is secreted in excess that can then affect our health, body, mind and soul. Here’s how stress affects our hormones and also our weight loss:

  1. Stress affects our sleep- Cortisol is the hormone which helps us in staying alert and it is normally the highest during the day when we are active and lowest during the night when we prepare to go to sleep. So, when we are under a lot of stress the cortisol levels are highly elevated which makes it difficult to sleep and if you don’t get a good night’s sleep after a long day, it affects your body weight. An effective way to remedy this is to use essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, ylang ylang, cedarwood etc., which helps you sleep better. You can do this by putting a few drops on your pillow and just try to go to sleep. Since, you will be inhaling the oils it will relax your senses and it will make it easier for you to have a sound sleep.
  2. Stress leads to unhealthy food habits- Stress hormones can heavily affect our food habits by increasing our cravings for sweet and sugary foods which leads to substantial weight gain. People, who are under more stress, tend to secrete more cortisol than people who are less stressed that is why they tend to consume more calories. In order to check your weight gain, the best thing you can do is to exercise which releases endorphins – hormones that lift your mood. Exercise also helps in increasing immunity that is otherwise reduced by stress.
  3. Stress makes it harder to be active- Since stress affects your mood and body heavily, it sometimes becomes very difficult to stay active. It is common knowledge that stress affects your immunity system which leads to a drop in energy levels, sickness, decelerated muscle recovery, muscle soreness and pain in your body. In order to combat this, you can go for weekly body massages which relaxes your muscles, gets rid of the pain in your joints and muscles, reduces your blood pressure and also secretes endorphins which make you feel happy and positive.
  4. Stress leads to binge eating- When you are stressed, your body tends to secrete higher levels of cortisol due to which the insulin in your body also gets hiked up. Because of this, there is a huge drop in your blood sugar levels which leads you to crave unhealthy junk and sugary foods. That is why they are known as “comfort foods”. Basically, the more stressed you are the more cortisol your body will secrete and the chances of you binge eating shoots up consequently. Meditation goes a long way in maintaining your peace of mind and also helps in limiting your craving impulses. This will help you keep your weight in check and stay healthy and happy.
  5. Stress directly affects hormones- When you feel stressed, it affects the balance of your hormones and they go haywire. Since your cortisol levels are up it leads to slow thyroid function, inadequate production of sex hormones and also causes sugar imbalance. Additionally, this makes it very difficult for the body to secrete serotonin which generally helps you in feeling good and happy. The best way to combat this and bring your hormones in check is to follow a healthy and nutritious diet. Make sure you consume an adequate amount of protein and fibre in every meal. It is also extremely important to include carbohydrates, vitamins and healthy fats in your daily diet. Believe it or not, a well- balanced diet goes a long way in keeping you healthy and stress free.

Hormones are incredibly important in keeping our body and mind healthy. If our hormones are not in balance it can lead to heart problems, obesity, diabetes and other host of health problems. Even though, stress is not completely avoidable it can surely be kept in check by following the above mentioned ideas. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
