BACH FLOWER REMEDY- MIXTURE FOR EXAMS/ EXAM FEAR/ EXAM STRESS

CERTIFICATION IN BACH FLOWER REMEDIES OF ENGLAND, Ph.D DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN BIOCHEMISTRY, B.S.M.S BACHELOR OF SIDDHA MEDICINE AND SURGERY,
Alternative Medicine Specialist,
BACH FLOWER REMEDY- MIXTURE FOR EXAMS/ EXAM FEAR/ EXAM STRESS

The mixture is made with these flowers:

Clematis: for a better concentration

Chestnut bud: to better remember things

Gentian: not to respond when in front of an unexpected situation

Elm: for a surplus of care that an exam requires

Larch: to have confidence in your abilities

Some of my ideas that may help you customizing this mixture:

Mimulus: if you're scared about the exam or if you're shy

Impatiens: especially useful towards the end of the studying process and during the days before an exam, if you're afraid that you might not have enough time to study or if you can't wait for the exam

White chestnut: when your mind always goes to the things that you're studying or when you can't stop thinking about the exam itself. This mixture for the exam is very useful. But don't forget to study.

Intelligent boy is not scoring marks -

Is there any fear of exam? (Mimulus)

Does he forget during the exam but remember after the exam? (Scleranthus)

Or is he going blank and forgetting the answer? (white chestnut)

Or does he not have enough time? (elm)

Or feeling shaky while reading the question paper? (rescue remedy)

Or making silly mistakes and getting fewer marks. (impatiens)

Is he sitting to study putting the required efforts? (oak)

Or not sitting to study in the house? (chestnut bud)

Hi, as your son is in his" teens" which is very crucial time period for him, there are hormonal fluctuations which he is going through and at the same time, you do have to guide him properly so that he shouldn't get spoiled in bad company. The important point here is, you should have patience and a good communication with him, just break the ice and make friends with him so that he could able to confide in you and start sharing the things openly with you. But listen to him patiently even if he is going in wrong direction because building up that faith and confidence in you will let you hold his hand and take him in the right direction!

antipsychotic drugs are better avoided in pregnancy.. but due to lack of large studies their side effects on foetus have not all been documented clearly wth statistical precision.However, if your psychiatrist feels that continuation of treatment is more important, please defer planning a family for the time being.

Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

It is the problem now every youth is facing. They watch pornoraphy in that they compare thier size. When compared to foreigners our size is very small. Based on this youth developed inferiority complex. They have doubt that we perform very well or not. Because of this some youth postponed marriage also. Initial days onwards you go medicine after that it may be addiction. Without medicine you are unable to do that. So power may increase day by day. It may leads some other problem. Suppose you partner and her mothers knows they may be chance to comment on your power. They said this person is has not having sexual problems. Your partner may also complain that please come without medicine. So you may so many problems. Physical as well as psychological problems. So do not depend on medicine. Do as a natural manner. They are not using any medicine why do you prefer medicine. Go with full confidence. You may succeed definitely. So please follow my suggestions. I have seen so many cases related to this problems. For that reason I give this advise. So please follow. Best of luck.

During that situation take deep breaths for 10-12 times and if possible sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall and upper part of body lying down making 90 degree with legs for 10 mins. Your mind will be relaxed of all stress within 5-7 mins temporarily.

First consult a neurologist to rule out any neurological cause. In some movement disorders, the symptoms reduce on distraction. Hence that factor cannot be used to diagnose. For a patient to have Parkinson's disease, other features like tremors, rigidity, bradykinesia, etc also need to be present. Once it is ruled out, consult a psychiatrist. In some patients, depression and anxiety often manifests as a physical symptom. If he is on medication, ensure it is in supervised capacity.

Domestic Abuse Is Not Just Physical - It Can be Silent Too!

Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling
Psychologist, Jalandhar
Domestic Abuse Is Not Just Physical - It Can be Silent Too!

No matter how cool, attractive or smart you are, you could be a victim of domestic abuse and the worst thing is that you are not even aware of that. In most cases, people neglect it as a small and insignificant issue, but the truth is that silent abuse can do you more harm than anything else and if you are thinking whether or not you are being abused, chances are that you are.

  1. You are fearful about your partner’s reactions: In some instances, you must have found that you are more fearful of your partner’s reaction to a particular awful situation than the severity of the situation itself. It is the first sign that you are heading towards an acute form of abuse.
  2. You are not upset about fighting with your partner but scared: Fighting with someone you love is an unpleasant ordeal. While it is supposed to make you feel sad and depressed, it is not meant to make you feel scared that he or she would hit you or cheat on you.
  3. When you are fighting, you are looking for an exit: Is your gut feeling saying that you are not safe while having an argument; it is a warning sign of domestic abuse.
  4. You cannot trust your partner: Trust is something that comes naturally in a relationship and when your partner is demanding your trust forcefully, you are being emotionally abused.
  5. Your partner makes you feel like you are insane: Have you been noticing that your spouse is manipulating your words or actions to advance his or her own agenda? Be careful.
  6. You feel that you always need your spouse’s opinion: This is because you know that your partner would be angry, if you decide on something of your own.
  7. Your partner doesn’t allow you a life outside him or her: If the other person is not secured when you want to spend some time with your friends or colleagues, it indicates that they have no respect or support for you.
  8. Your partner makes you feel guilty most of the time: This is an important sign of how difficult it would be for you to manage to be with your partner in future. He or she makes you feel guilty so that no guilt falls on their shoulders.
  9. Your self-esteem is running negative: When you are being emotionally drained, it would have an ill effect on your confidence level and self-esteem.
  10. Your partner tracks your activities: Lastly, if you find yourself being tracked, no matter what you do or where you go, you are being abused significantly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Are You A Heavy Drinker? 5 Tips to Help You Drink in Moderation!

MBBS, Diploma in Public Health ( Preventive and Social Medicine)
General Physician, Navi Mumbai
Are You A Heavy Drinker? 5 Tips to Help You Drink in Moderation!

While most of us consume alcohol on a social basis, or during certain special and momentous events of our life, there are some people who may be classified as heavy drinkers. There is a certain alcohol limit as per the sex, age and climate that a person can have on a daily basis. When a person overshoots that limit on a daily basis and that too by a large margin, he or she may be known as a heavy drinker.

If you fall in this heavy drinking category, then you may want to go through the following tips in order to bring down and curb your habit so that you can drink in moderation, without causing undue problems for your mental and physical health.

  1. Use bitters: Using bitters, especially digestive bitters, with your drinks can help in bringing down the amount of alcohol that you consume in one go. This can also help your body in digesting the alcohol in a better manner so that you do not wake up with a hangover. Also, the use of digestive bitters can help in detoxification of the liver and prevent it from getting coated with toxins released by alcohol.
  2. Water: It is a well-known fact that one must stay hydrated while drinking so that he/she does not get carried away and drink too much. You can easily have a glass of water between each drink so that you keep the buzz at a stable level rather than letting it get to your head, to a point where you start to ask for even more alcohol. Moreover, before a big party or event, it is best to first have plenty of water so that you do not end up going overboard.
  3. Cleansing juices: The latest diet and fitness fad includes a dose of juices churned from various kinds of fruit and vegetables. You can also try this cleansing juice menu every time you feel like reaching out for a drink. This will help you in keeping things in perspective and then drinking moderately, if and when the need arises.
  4. Set a drink deadline: If you want to cut back on your drinks significantly, then one of the best things to do is to set yourself a drink deadline. As per this deadline, you will set a number where you will stop. For instance, once you have reached 2 to 3 drinks, you will automatically stop so that you do not binge.
  5. Find a support group: It is best to find a support group of friends or even an alcoholic anonymous group so that you can share your experiences and find motivation at the same time. This is especially important for those going through withdrawal symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

What to reduce my stress&control anxiety,emotions? Please suggest any techinques are available.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You need to know the cause of your stress and anxiety first. Everyone goes through stress, but anxiety occurs when a person is unable to exercise enough control over the direction and intensity of the thoughts. Telling yourself that what you are thinking is not really going to happen( if it's an irrational fear) and collecting evidence to disprove it, will help you to offset some anxiety. Knowing your personal strengths and using them to manage stress is a good method. Positive thinking will help you a long way on this journey. Meeting people who are cheerful, positive and progressive will be of immense value. Try to learn critical thinking and problem solving techniques. Exercising, yoga, meditation, walking in open air, diet, sleep all play a big role in controlling stress and anxiety. You could meet a counsellor in your city who can help you to overcome negative thinking and find your personal strengths.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Prefer keeping yourself is a dangerous thing. Be friends with others. In friendliness the severity of the problem may reduced. You explore your internal status with others. Then severity of the problem may become small. So please share with close relatives and friends. Take further steps for relax yourself. Change the place if possible or visit new places, temples, movies, do not be alone spend most of the outside. Create your entertainment channels. Do not think about past incidents. Be happy and be friendly all the time. Ok best of the luck.
