Stress is an inevitable occurrence in the life of all individuals. It takes many forms, such as social, mental and physical to name a few. Anything from work deadlines, commuting burdens, financial obstacles to raising a kid stress doesn't stop. Whilst some personalities take it with ease and find means of dealing with it, others crumble to states of depression and even resort to suicide the obvious winner here being stress itself.
I would like to cite a metaphor for the stress-the elastic rubber band. When one holds an elastic rubber band between the thumbs and when the band is left slack, it is symbolic of people being in a restful state such as sleep. When the band is pulled out to a comfortable stretch, it is comparable to people having a regular working/functioning day before returning to a relaxed state. However, when the elastic band is pulled out to an over-stretched position then it is a warning to the individual to take note and get back to a comfortable position. The overstretched position has two places to go. It can deplete completely and crumble or break if it continues to overstretch itself. Like the elastic rubber band, every individual is equipped with getting back to the comfortable state provided the effort and will exist.
The amount of stress we wish to take in is in our hands as is the amount we wish to neglect. Apart from the various sizes and shapes, stress comes in as mentioned above, stress can be an important external indicator of internal health. One such indicator is the largest organ of our body, the skin. The skin & hair are generally referred to as mirror images of internal body system functioning and are often the first indicator/sign of disease activity originating from within. We dedicate this write-up to our skin& hair, for, they are our shining armour in the fight against a merciless opponent- stress.
Effects of stress on the skin:
When we are stressed, our body releases a hormone known as cortisol. The long-term activation of the stress-response system and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones can disrupt almost all body processes. This puts an individual at increased risk of numerous health problems, including anxiety, depression, digestive problems, headaches, heart disease, sleep problems, weight gain, memory and concentration impairment. The mind and skin are connected at many intricate levels. One theory is the target organ theory: some people get ulcers, some people get migraines and other people get skin rashes as the skin is their target organ to channelize stress. As the skin is exposed to view, skin conditions elicit reactions from the patients' environment and the easy accessibility of the skin allows patients to interact directly with their rashes, adding further to emotional and mechanical stress. So, a skin disorder in itself can be a cause of concern and thus lead to stress, while on the other hand, stress can be considered as a triggering/perpetuating/aggravating factor in the causation of various skin diseases.
1. General conditions:
Dryness: periods of chronic stress will release the hormone cortisol that in turn damages the skin's ability to retain water leading to dryness. One must drink plenty of water throughout the day. Application of a non-allergenic, fragrance-free moisturizer while the skin is slightly damp traps moisture, thereby protecting the skin from dryness.
Sleep: poor quality sleepers have increased signs
Of intrinsic skin aging including fine lines, uneven pigmentation and reduced elasticity and hollowness in the under-eye region. On an average 6-8 hours of sleep is warranted along with plenty of fluid intake. There are a multitude of under-eye creams in the market with moderate benefits. Dermal fillers can be injected into the tear trough, a hollow groove in the under-eye region, which thereby replenishes the sparse hyaluronic acid there. early to bed, early to rise makes the skin healthy, worthy and nice- is the mantra here for sure.
Fine lines: Constant use of the muscles of facial expression, like frowning and pursuing one's lips when one is stressed or angry can lead to deeper wrinkles in these areas over time. Topical retinoid creams, botox injections and platelet-rich plasma therapy are some of the useful modalities to target fine lines and wrinkles.
Immune system: chronic stress usually suppresses the immune system, increases susceptibility to infections and exacerbates some allergic and inflammatory diseases. A balanced and healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, oral antioxidants along with a proper exercise regime will definitely give a boost to one's immune sytem.
Others: Smoking and air pollution have been confirmed as critical chronic stressors that impact skin aging significantly. Air born particle exposure from traffic is associated with significant increase in pigment spots and facial wrinkles. Avoiding smoking and using sunscreens on a regular basis along with physical sun protection can go a long way.
2. Skin conditions:
Acne: The exact cause by which stress worsens acne is not known but a possible explanation is that during periods of stress, stress hormones are activated. The cells that produce sebum have receptors for stress hormones. Sebum is the oily substance that mixes with dead skin cells and bacteria to clog the hair follicles, leading to a pimple or acne cyst.

It occurs when an increased number of hair (i.e, more than one in ten) are in the telogen stage (shedding stage) of the hair growth cycle.

Obesity and the Small Penis
Even in today's health-conscious culture, obesity continues to be a major problem. According to a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1 in 3 adults in America are considered obese. Clearly, obesity is a general health concern, but for men it can also be a penis health issue. And beyond health, there's another factor to consider: men who are obese tend to present with a small penis.
Small penis appearance
Does this mean that obesity causes a man's penis to shrink? Not exactly. Instead, being overweight causes the penis to appear smaller than it actually is.
Part of this is an illusion and has to do with seeing things in comparison. For example, imagine two men standing naked next to each other, each with an erection measuring six inches long and having the same girth. Assume they are the same height, but that one has a waist measuring 34 inches and one a waist measuring 44 inches. Because there is so much more mass "framing" the erection in the second instance, it is going to appear smaller than the erection on the first, leaner man.
But there are other, more insidious ways that obesity contributes to the appearance of a small penis. As stated, being overweight does not make the penis actually shrink. However, as a man's belly grows, so does his pubic pad. This area at the base of the penis grows out over the penis, hiding that portion underneath a layer of fat. It's estimated that every 40-50 extra pounds a man gains hides about an inch of his penis in this way. So his penis may still technically be six inches long - but with an inch hidden away, it appears to be only five inches.
How else does a small penis result from obesity? Well, obesity is associated with erectile dysfunction. Blood vessels are weakened by excess fat, so erections are not as full and strong, thus when the penis becomes erect, it often is not as long as it was in the past.
Fear of a small penis may cause some obese men to take steps to lose some of that extra weight - and that's definitely a good idea. Maintaining a healthy weight can pay off in many ways beyond just making a man proud of his penis. But it's important that a man, especially one who has been overweight for a long period of time, checks in with a doctor before beginning a new diet or strenuous next exercise routines.
That said, here are a few things a man can consider to help him fight his obesity.
- Eat around the food groups. Many men eat too much of certain foods, such as fatty meats or sugary foods, and not enough of healthier items like fruits and vegetables. By expanding the kinds of food he eats, a guy can eat healthier and lose weight at the same time.
- Choose smaller portions. It's not always necessary to "clean the plate" when eating. Men can try taking smaller portions or just eating until their hunger is satisfied, rather than feeling obligated to "eat it all."
- Exercise wisely. Not every guy can jump right into spending two hours working out or running ten miles a day. It's good to know limits and to start slow. Even just walking 30 minutes a day can be beneficial to a guy who is mostly sedentary.
More than just creating the appearance of a small penis, obesity can make it difficult for a man to properly tend to his penis health. This can more easily be accomplished through the daily application of a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The best crème contains both L-carnitine and L-arginine. The former is a neuroprotective ingredient that is excellent at keeping sensation alive in the penis. The latter is an amino acid that helps produce nitric oxide, which in turn helps keep penile blood vessels healthy.ly/1JdSXsN
'Psycho' refers to the mind and 'soma' refers to the body, so psychosomatic disorder is a problem with a combination of mind and body. Not only are these bodily disorders caused by a psychic factor, the correlation between these symptoms (aggravation and recovery) are very strong.
Psychosomatic disorders are commonly referred as psychosomatic illness. It is an illness whose symptoms are caused by mental processes of the sufferer rather than immediate physiological causes. If a medical examination can find no physical or organic cause or if an illness appears to result from emotional conditions such as anger, anxiety, depression or guilt then it might be classified as psychosomatic.
The concept of psychosomatic disorders has been in existence since the time of Sigmund Freud. The belief is that with the varied emotions that a person experiences, each disease manifests with a different set of symptoms in each person, implying that each person needs to be treated differently and not given the same disease-specific medication. This is where homeopathy plays a very strong role in psychosomatic disorders as it also believes in treating the person as a whole and not just the symptoms.
In homoeopathy, we base our prescription on what we call constitutional symptoms where we give lot of importance to the mental symptom as well as to the characteristic physical symptom. Hence every prescription from a Homoeopathic physician will surely include an element of psychosomatic angle. It is beyond the scope of this editorial to mention all the remedies of Materia Medica which has the scope for the treatment of psychosomatic disorders.
The homeopath always undertakes a thorough discussion with the patient to understand the accompanying symptoms in detail and then arrive at a customized treatment plan.
Specific substances are given to manage anxiety, depression, irritability, insecurity, paranoia, etc. These feelings are considered inducers for the above disorders, and managing them can help bring about a harmony in the patient's overall health.

Because of the loss of blood, the patient may become dehydrated and anemic.
Homeopathy for Ulcerative Colitis:
To identify the actual inducing agent, some foods are removed to see if they are inducing attacks. Once identified, that is removed from the patient's diet. In addition, aloe, arsenicum album, carbo vegetabilis, colocynthis, are commonly used remedies for ulcerative colitis. The patient is asked for associated symptoms like bleeding diarrhea, color of the feces, involuntary defecation, abdominal pain, anxiety, cramps, and stress before deciding on a treatment mode.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Irritable bowel syndrome, also known as spastic colon is a functional disorder characterized by recurrent abdominal pain, cramping, and bloating.

Allergy: Allergy is an abnormal reaction or increased sensitivity to certain substances. The allergic individual produces symptoms when exposed to these substances, which are harmless to non-allergic people. The main reason for this is that allergic people make a special type of antibody called immunoglobin E (IgE), which can react with environmental substances in harmful way. These substances which lead to secretion of IgE antibodies are called allergens.
