Worrying can be helpful when it spurs you to take action and solve a problem. But if you’re preoccupied with “what ifs” and worst-case scenarios, worry becomes a problem. Unrelenting doubts and fears can be paralyzing. They can sap your emotional energy, send your anxiety levels soaring, and interfere with your daily life. But chronic worrying is a mental habit that can be broken. You can train your brain to stay calm and look at life from a more positive perspective. start doing yoga and exercise

Anxiety Disorder - Natural Remedies That Can Help You!

BAMS, MD Ayurveda

Anxiety Disorder - Natural Remedies That Can Help You!

In the fast paced world today, everyone is in a hurry to get things done and thus, sleep disorders, chronic stress and anxiety are natural outcomes. They may appear to you as very common and do not concern much. But in reality, they can be extremely harmful to your health. High blood pressure and diabetes are some of the most serious results of chronic anxiety and so these must not be neglected. Though there are uncountable ways of treating these problems, it is better to start with Ayurvedic home remedies as they can cure you completely of anxiety and depression without causing any side effects.

Drink a cupful of chamomile tea when you are feeling anxious
Chamomile contains apigenin and luteolin, which are known for promoting relaxation. A recent study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Centre reports that the patients who are detected with generalized anxiety disorder and took chamomile tea supplements for 2 months, experienced a significant reduction in anxiety and depression symptoms as compared to those patients who were given a placebo.

Try to have about 3 grams of Omega-3 a day
There is enough evidence that Omega-3 fatty acids help in easing anxiety symptoms as well as lifting your mood by reducing the stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol in the body. You can have canned fatty fish like tuna, salmon along with a handful of walnuts and flax seeds with warm milk as these are all great sources of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Breathe in lavender when you are stressed out
People who receive a regular massage with lavender oil are found to be more confident and optimistic and less anxious. It can even lower down the systolic blood pressure, which is related to the stress levels. You can also add a few drops of lavender oil in your bath as well as your pillow. If you want an immediate release from stress, then adding a few drops in a cup of hot water and inhaling it right away can be a great option. Lavender oil can be used in any form you want. So you may dab a few drops right on your skin as lavender is one of very few essential oils that can be directly applied.

Anxiety itself is very harmful, and it even paves the way for more severe ailments. If you had been suffering from anxiety and chronic depression for quite some time, then it is advisable to try these home remedies before popping in those anti-depressants with loads of side effects. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

What are the proven ways to increase memory power? how to measure the same? any age limit for the same?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear chandrasekhar, I do understand. I do not know how bad is memory problem. The best method to improve memory power is to actively engage in brain games and other physical games. Spinach, nuts, fruits are always beneficial to the brain. I need to know more. People worry unnecessarily over memory problems. I think your worries are also such. I need to determine whether you really have any memory problems.

I am 25 years old, I am preparing for civil service exams, while studying how should I concentrate for more time?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This could be quite a challenging exam and you must be well prepared for them. Stress can foil memory and concentration. The distraction it leads to will not allow focus on a particular topic or subject. So locate the stressor and deal with it soon to recover good memory. It will be easier to work with a counselor on the emotions that are causing the stress. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. In the meantime do some of the following: 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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.

Lybrate-user. Symptoms explained by you go in favour of a psychosis. As he mutters to himself, he must be hallucinating. His altered behaviour also supports psychosis. He certainly needs an active psychiatric treatment provided organicity is ruled out. And one more thing it has nothing to do with his intelligence which is intact. Please consult a psychiatrist as early as possible. Take care!

Hi, depression is chronic mental health issue like hypertension and diabetes. If u are on medicine and u are doing well then go with same medicine in appropriate dosing. For symptoms that relapse u mark, write down in ur diary as warning sign and inform other caregiver to give support at the time of crisis. U also try to change ur daily routine activities so that u feel more relax and cheerful

Hi this is for my Wife, since few months we noticed that sometimes while speaking, wrong words are pops out from her mouth e.g she want to say 'honey' and the word comes out as 'ghee' or 'thousand' comes out as hundred. It happens with words only not with sentences. Along with this recently she often complains about her headaches too. Please let me know if there is anything serious, what is a cause of it and what treatment should we go for?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Well words popping out irrelevantly can be part of many problems. The first possibility is it can be due to hypothyroidism (most common) which occurs usually due to impairment in concentration. The second possibility is it can be a part of tic disorder usually vocal tics. The third possibility can be migraine headache with aura. The other most common possibility to think of is stress /depression which can also produce these symptoms. Since she is having headache my opinion is to consult both a neurologist/ psychiatrist. Neuro imaging maybe needed for her. She needs detailed clinical evaluation for a clear diagnosis to be made. Lastly don't worry in most clients we come across the problem is very mild and treatable. Your wife can be treated. Be relaxed and consult the specialist.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions and are related to psychological health rather than physical. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

How Homeopathy Helps Treat Mental And Physical Stress?

BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
How Homeopathy Helps Treat Mental And Physical Stress?

For the past two centuries, Homeopaths have concentrated on the interconnection between psychology and physiology. It has been known for long that Homeopathy has no side effects on a person's overall health and thus, it should be implemented in curing mental and physical stress. Mental stress may result from a person's coping skills. You may respond to stress in a wrong way and this further complicates your situation.

You may fail to control your instinctive reactions. Medications in Homeopathy can actually remedy disorders regarding stress management. In many cases, it has been noticed that a physiological disease has a psychological impetus to itself. For instance, people falling under the 'Type A personality' category are more susceptible to heart problems. Their heart problems can be serious enough to make them undergo bypass surgeries. 

An operation can be avoided, if only reasons behind problems at the surface are understood. Patients belonging to the 'Type A personality' category can suffer from 'hurry sickness' with symptoms like bouts of anger, impatience, aggression and hurriedness. These factors together enhance the risk of having heart problems later in life.

The following medicines tackle disorders without any side effects:

  1. Homeopaths advise you to take Aconitum napellus to reduce physical stress. Aconite napellus is known to treat problems such as a dry mouth, an irritable skin, a pounding heart and so on so forth. This can even cure problems resulting from a traumatic episode in past.
  2. Another Homeopathic medicine prescribed to deal with anxieties about future is Arsenicum album. If you have fears about your safety, about certainty or about what future has in store for you, this medicine can help you out.
  3. The medicine Phosphorus is known to treat fears of being alone. Many people are afraid of being alone. They need company all the time. Phosphorus also tackles common fears, such as fear of thunderstorms, fear of the dark or fear of ghosts for that matter.
  4. People facing anxieties about health or anxieties about death often evade sleeping at night. They hallucinate and see apparitions. Mental stress therefore, leads to physical stress. Kali- arsenicosum is one Homeopathic medicine to take care of such problems.

Homeopathy as an alternative branch of medicine, which comes to your relief without causing other bodily problems during the course of treatment. Hence, to fight mental or physical stress you must try out Homeopathy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

I am 29 years old and have been occasionally (avg once a month) experiencing severe anger outbursts since last two years in which I lose control of myself, often directing violence towards my life partner. I do not have a clue why is this so. I have not observed this tendency before. What should be the way forward?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Kindly get your anger evaluated and treated by a psychiatrist. I have given some anger control tips, if they do not work, kindly consult without delay, 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of, "You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

I had to move to a different city for studying in a college. I'm a single child and my parents are very over protective about me. Thats why my mother decided to come with me and stay together in a rented house. My mom is a house wife and dad has his business back home. Although dad keeps vising for a good 10-15 dats every month, yet mom has to stay alone in d house d rest of d days when dad isnt around. Every time dad leaves, my mom kees crying the entire day and stays very irritated. She creates a scene and scolds me over trivial reasons. She loves me a lot and doesnt let me do anything on my own. She doesnt even let me go to college and come home alone.She drops me and picks me up as well. She is skeptical about me going anywhere outside college campus with my friends. Although i avoid going out with friends but on some days i have to go out in order to participate in extra curricular activities of college. On such days, my mother would be very concerned and would worry a lot. My mother has diabetes,high blood pressure etc and if she takes tension it adversely affects her health. Sumtimes she drops me to college and den i go out of college meet friends and den come back to college. I dont like the way she tries to control my life. From what i eat to what i ear and everything else she controls me.I hv told her that i can stay in a hostel but she says she cant live without me and also that i cant take care if myself. When dad is away she keeps calling dad all the time which makes dad feel guilty as well. We tell her something as to how she can keep herself busy with books or exercise or some creative classes. We tell her that she needs to give me some space and that i'm not a 10 year old anymore. But when we say all this, she cries or gets angry and her blood pressure gets high etc. She has sacrificed a lot for the family but she needs to understand that each one us are also individuals and we all need to have a life of our own. I feel like running away somewhere or just dying. Right now each one of us is frustrated. What do i do?

You all need family therapy. Your mom?s mothering is smothering, isn?t it? She is refusing to cut the apron strings even now! I like that she loves you so much but it should not stifle your growth and independence. All people, and particularly children seek Permission and Protection to grow, develop, and become independent. It is not the equal use of both but a discrete use of one over the other for the singular purpose of growing up and away of the dependent person. You must talk to the college counselor and get him/her to intervene. But the greatest proof would be for her to see that you are a responsible person by the way you conduct your life and studies. Now I know it could turn out to be ?a chicken or the egg? situation, where you may feel justified that you can?t be responsible without the provision of that kind of opportunity or permission. However, do not get into that futile argument but prove yourself to her. Then talk to dad too and get him to assure her. She obviously gets worked up over little or no reason, which is why she may have all those medical complications. Someone has to become firm and take a strong stance. It all sounds good on the surface but what she is inadvertently doing is stifling your growth and self-confidence. I do not recommend that you do sneaky things behind her back because that is no solution to over-protective parents. This whole manner will disturb your healthy development. Parents? love must ensure the healthy personality formation while they are in charge. At a certain age that is relinquished to enable independence. So you must do something either through the college (try the counselor or the principal), through dad, and of course through your responsible behavior. A professional will also help by reminding your mom to sever the umbilical cord. So it is all up to you to maneuver, in a gracious manner, this healthy outcome for your own good. Let me know how it goes. I am fully with you, and would love to be of some help. Let?s see what initiative you take. The single child status does not help at all for these reasons, particularly.

Dear, You are not alone. Almost all adolescent people do have such attitude. It is not your fault but your developmental mile stone. You are learning LIFE. Don't worry. You have concentration if you are able to watch movie for 2 hours continuously. In the matter of studies, you do not have attention because you are not interested in it. You are not interested because you do not have any concrete aim.
