Patient Review Highlights
- There are two level of your mind: conscious or subconscious.
- You think with your conscious mind & whatever you habitually think sinks down into your subconscious mind, which create according to the nature of your thoughts.
- Subsconscious mind is the seat of your emotions & is the creative mind. If you think good, good will follow; if you think evil, evil will follow. This is the way your mind works.
- Your subconscious mind accepts what is impressed upon it or what you consciously believe. It does not reason things out like your conscious mind,& it does not argue with you controversially.
- Your subconscious mind is like a soil, which accepts any kind of seed, good or bad.
Your thoughts are active and might be likened unto seeds. Negative, destructive
thoughts continue to work negatively in your subconscious mind, and in due time will come forth into outer experience which corresponds with them.
- Subsconsious mind does not engage in proving whether your thoughts are good or bad, true or false, but it responds according to the nature of your thoughts or suggestions. Example if you consciously assume something as true, even though it may be false, your subsconscious mind will accepts it as true and proceed to bring about results, which must necessarily follow, because you consciously assumed it to be true.
- The law of your mind is this: you will get a reaction or response from your subsconscious mind according to the nature of the thought you hold your conscious mind.
Bdd is a body image problem. It is defined as a preoccupation with one or more perceived defects in one's appearance which other people can hardly notice or do not believe to be important. Bdd obsessions may manifest as excessive, disproportionate concerns about a minor flaw, or anxiety-provoking thoughts about an entirely imagined defect.
Bdd goes beyond normal concern with one's appearance, and may significantly impair academic and professional functioning, as well as interpersonal relationships.
*engaging in repetitive and time-consuming behaviors, such as looking in a mirror, picking at the skin, and trying to hide or cover up the perceived defect.
* strong belief that you have a defect in your appearance that makes you ugly or deformed.
*belief that others take special notice of your appearance in a negative way.
*attempting to hide perceived flaws with styling, makeup or clothes.
*constantly comparing your appearance with others.
*seeking frequent cosmetic procedures with little satisfaction.
*being so preoccupied with appearance that it causes major distress or problems in your social life, work, school or other areas of functioning.
Depression and anxiety, including suicidal thoughts.
The exact cause of bdd is not known. One theory suggests the disorder involves a problem with the size or functioning of certain brain areas that process information about body appearance. The fact that bdd often occurs in people with other mental health disorders, such as major depression andanxiety, further supports a biological basis for the disorder.
Other factors that might influence the development of bdd include:
1) experience of traumatic events or emotional conflict during childhood
2) low self-esteem
3) parents and others who were critical of the person's appearance.
4) pressure from peers and a society that equates physical appearance can have an impact on the development of bdd.
Treatment for bdd likely will include a combination of the following therapies:
@ psychotherapy: this is a type of individual counseling that focuses on changing the thinking (cognitive therapy) and behavior (behavioral therapy) of a person with body dysmorphic disorder. The goal is to correct the false belief about the defect and to minimize the compulsive behaviour.
@ medication: certain antidepressant medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) are showing promise in treating body dysmorphic disorder, as are antipsychotic medicines such as olanzapine, aripiprazole, orpimozide (either alone or in combination with an ssri). No drug is formally fda-approved for the treatment of bdd.
@ group or family therapy: family support is very important to treatment success. It is important that family members understand body dysmorphic disorder and learn to recognize its signs and symptoms.
