MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Jaipur
Hi, The essential feature of this disorder is recurrent obsessional thoughts or compulsive acts. Obsessional thoughts are ideas, images or impulses that enter the individual's mind again and again in a stereotyped form. They are almost invariably distressing (because they are violent or obscene, or simply because they are perceived as senseless) and the sufferer often tries, unsuccessfully, to resist them. They are, however, recognized as the individual's own thoughts, even though they are involuntary and often repugnant. Compulsive acts or rituals are stereotyped behaviours that are repeated again and again. They are not inherently enjoyable, nor do they result in the completion of inherently useful tasks. Autonomic anxiety symptoms are often present, but distressing feelings of internal or psychic tension without obvious autonomic arousal are also common. There is a close relationship between obsessional symptoms, particularly obsessional thoughts, and depression. So, you need to be treated and for that have to visit a psychiatrist otherwise its severity with time will increases.

Children generally live at home with their families providing for their needs, often with the assistance of workers from state agencies. Until your child reaches the age of three, services are provided through the Early Intervention system. A Services Coordinator (Case Manager) works with parents and/or guardians to develop an Individualized Family Services Plan (IFSP). Services for a child with developmental delay may include individual therapies, play groups, parent training, family counseling, or transportation services. Depending on your state, there may be a sliding-scale fee for these services, or they may be free of charge. At three years of age, the school system begins to provide the needed school and therapy services. children with mental retardation are entitled to a free and appropriate education based on their needs. School systems are required to work with parents to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP). The IEP describes each child's own needs and how the school system will meet them. Both special education and other needed services are provided free of charge. Ideally, children with mental retardation are enrolled in regular classrooms with children of the same age, with special supports as needed. They may be included in a regularclassroom for all or part of the school day. Sometimes children may also attend specialized classrooms or schools, based on their individual needs. All the best

Ayurveda Can Help You Beat Stress

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, DNHE, P.G. Diploma in Panchkarma, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Hapur
Ayurveda Can Help You Beat Stress

Stress is a natural response to situations we have to face, but the fact remains that a similar situation may leave one individual a mess but another, untouched. What this implies is that how stressed you feel largely depends on the way you choose to respond to a stressful situation. With the right diet, breathing techniques and the use of adaptogenic herbs, it is possible to alter this response and cultivate a positive attitude that will help us face life's challenges with courage and strength, without losing our cool. Here are the other ill effects of stress.

Eat the right foods

According to ayurveda, food possesses three qualities or gunas

sattva, rajas and tamas. Sattvik food is light, fresh and nutritious,rajasik food is spicy and fans emotions, and tamasik foods are stale and promote the sense of inertia. Obviously, the consumption of a diet rich in rajasik and tamasik foods is bound to keep you in a state of mind that is most conducive to stress whereas a sattvik diet helps keep the mind calm.

Remedy
make sure you include foods such as pulses, fresh vegetables and fruits, milk and grains such as rice and tapioca. Avoid spicy chutneys and pickles, sour cream, chicken, fish, meat, cheese, onion, garlic and urad dal and you will find a noticeable change in your ability to cope with stressful situations. Here are some more expert tips to beat stress.

Use relaxing herbs

Certain herbs such as cardamom (elaichi), lettuce, celery, peppermint, chamomile and fennel (saunf) contain phytoconstituents that have wonderful relaxing properties. Make these a part of your diet in the form of herbal tea or by working them into the dishes you cook for some stress relief. Ayurveda recommends the use of adaptogenic herbs (that help the body and mind adapt better to stressful conditions) over time can also help you cultivate a calm mind that does not easily get swayed by extreme emotions. Herbs such as aswagandha, jatamansi, guduchi, brahmi, tulsi and shankhpushpi help restore the imbalance in your doshas that make up the body and mind. However, it is important you avoid self-medication with these herbs- have them only under the prescription of a registered ayurvedic practitioner who is well-versed with their use.

Have an oil massage 

An oil massage has a number of health benefits and one of them is stress relief. According to ayurveda, abhyanga the application of oil to the entire body at regular intervals is an easy way of relaxing not just the body, but also the mind. Use any oil- castor, sesame or coconut. heat it and rub it into your scalp and all over the body; allow the oil to remain for an hour or two and then bathe with hot water. You will actually feel the stress and strain wash out of your system. For even better relaxation, mix in a little powder of shankhpushpi or brahmi into the oil you use for the massage.

Cut down on unhealthy beverages

Most of us are addicted to some form of liquid stimulant that we believe makes us more alert and able to deal with the myriad things life brings our way. Caffeine and alcohol tends to increase feelings of anxiety and stress. Cut down on your intake of such beverages and you are sure to observe your stress levels becoming much more manageable. Apart from increasing your stress levels soft drinks also have a lot of unhealthy side effects, so giving up that one habit can do you a world of good.

Breathe right

In our constant rush to meet deadlines and do things on time, our breathing takes a backseat. A lack of proper deep breaths greatly reduces the amount of oxygen circulating through your body. This is a major reason for stress related damage to the body. To combat this, make it a point to breathe in slowly and deeply a few times every morning and night - feel your stomach and chest expand as you inhale, and fall as you exhale. Breathe in as you slowly count from 1 to 5, hold for five counts and then exhale while counting from 1 to 5. If possible, learn the techniques of pranayama from a qualified instructor and practice it every day. Whenever you feel yourself getting tense, practice this deep breathing a few times and you will find the feeling of crisis tide over almost effortlessly. Over time, you will find it easier to cope better with unpleasant situations without getting stressed. Pranayam has a number of other health benefits too, you can read more about them here.

You haven't mentioned why health issues you have but it seems to be stressing you out enough to impact your health. Thus stress and worry will not solve your health problems. If you want your health then you will need to do things that make you healthy. Problems are a part of everyone's lives but some people feel it more than others. This is because of the meanings and significance that they attach to these problems and their way of ruminating about it. Getting health checks done and taking medications timely is one way of taking care of your health. Another way is to exercise regularly, eat healthy food, reduce junk food and sleeping on time. Learning how to manage stress and tensions will help you remain healthy longer. A counsellor will be able to provide you with a non judgemental space where you can talk freely and openly about your problems and find workable solutions to your problems. Is some of the problems are not within your control, then learning to live with them amicably is one way out. Problems and mistakes are actually great teachers and if we have the right attitude can learn a lot and grow and develop personally and spiritually. A simple life without any complications would be very boring and unchallanging. Without experiencing sadness and disappointment how will you appreciate success, happiness and achievements? try to see life as a balance of positives and negatives and remember that bad times don't last forever. Good times will follow eventually and you will be up and about all over again. Being flexible and adaptable is a desirable trait in people who want to achieve a lot in life. These are general tips.

Dear Lybrate user. Having tingling with pain in fingers may simply be the somatic presentation of your internal anxiety. Having a glass break by your hand 1 year back holds no chance for having pain now. So my suggestion to you would be to have a detailed evaluation done from a psychiatrist and get your anxiety treated. Take Care.

Can we improve our intelligence? If we ,then how it is possible. By doing meditation daily can we improve or by using anacardium30 syrup is is it possible to improve intelligence?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
1. Become a renaissance man. Or woman. Be a student of life—not just wealth, health and happiness. Study history, science, psychology, art, languages, math, music, etc. Learn how this world works. Add depth to your mind and character. Read at least one book a week. Start to notice the patterns. Intelligence all boils down to pattern recognition. 2. Play the brain game Dual N-Back. Do this 20 minutes a day. It will improve your working memory, and one study showed it increased IQ drastically. Other studies showed it didn’t. Screw those studies. I’ve been doing this for a while, and it is definitely doing something amazing to my brain. 3. Do regular high cardio exercise. The version of Dual N-Back I use tracks my progress. Well one day I went to the gym and played the game right when I got home (I use the word “game” lightly—it’s mild torture). My scores went through the friggin roof. There is something about the release of endorphins that sends your brain into overdrive. Get as many of those endorphins as possible. 4. Learn an instrument. Learning to play music is the equivalent of giving your brain a full body workout. This has been proven in studies using FMRI scans. Simply put, playing an instrument lights your entire brain on intellectual fire and has lasting impact on math and spatial reasoning skills. It’s not for no reason the wealthy almost universally require their children to learn a classical instrument whether they like it or not. Carve out 30 minutes a week to take a lesson and release your inner rock star. 5. Buy the book Boost Your IQ by Carolyn Skitt, and play all the games. This book was written by Mensa nerds, so you can be guaranteed they know what they’re talking about. Bottom line: your intelligence is not set in genetic stone. You can increase it. And as you do, all the other things you’re trying to succeed at will become amazingly easier. I did it. You can do it. “You have to be smart. The easy days are over.” –Robert Kiyosaki. Then you have to consult your HOMEOPATHIC DOCTOR or better medicine.

Doc I have a problem of forgetting. I forget to some general things even some names or words that generally everyone knows.

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
There is s possibility that you are having learning disabilty (dyslexia) with limitations in working memory. Check whether you are attentive to whatever you do, or preoccupied with some other thought whenever you are doing any activity. If this is the problem then improve your attention by overcoming the preoccupation using" here and now" method consistently. If you feel that you have to improve you memory there are a number of techniques such as cue control, sequential prioritizing etc. If you feel that you are anxious stressed or sleep deprived which leads to forgetting consult a clinical psychologist at the earliest edit answer.

**hello lybrate-user, first of all I would like the appreciate your thought that you want to do some thing to avoid laptop and mobile. **thus, what I mean that you have already taken the first step by deciding that you want to do something, so that you can have a balanced life between laptop - mobile one one side and your priorities like studies on the other side. ** atleat the level of awareness that you have will take you long way. ** firstly, you don't have to completely avoid them. But rather divide your time according to your priorities. If your priority is studies then make a timetable as to how and when and how much time will you give to your studies. Then in breaks you can still operate on mobile and laptop. ** try not to completely be off them as then the craving will be more. ** see that you don't starve your self from studies and other activities as well. ** think of physical activities (swimming, racket games, cycling gym etc,) that you can do so that you r fit at the same time. ** if you want, you can learn to play any musicical instrument, as it's a great way to concentrate and focus in your life. ** all the best for your new improvised lifestyle.

How much exercise do people over age 50 really need? How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Exercise depends upon peron to peron and age is not the criteria of judging the amount of exercise one should put in.After 50 just exercise such that your body is fit and you are active throughout the day. At or over age 50,one must drink on an average one Drink /Day.The consumption of this drink should be very slow ending anywhere between 15-45 Minutes One drink is equal to one of the following:  250 ML can or bottle of regular beer  100 ML can or bottle of malt liquor  60 ML glass of red or white wine 30 ML glass of hard liquor (spirits) like gin, vodka, or whiskey. Although tolerance effect of consuming alcohol remains almost same in age group 50-65 year if factors remain same but loneliness, boredom, anxiety, or depression, In fact, depression in older adults leads to decreased tolerance but increased diverion towards alcohol just causing health issues.

My aunt is very sweet and loving. But on the contrary she gets violent even at 60 and hardly can control her anger. At times she gets very depressed about life and actually it is increasing day by day and she keeps ruminating over the past and recalling the past unpleasant memories. She feels alienated but it is not so. It is in her thought process. Everyone in the family loves n cares for her but she feels insecure. And one thing lastly she gets panicky about petty matters.

Your aunt is becoming old now and life becomes more difficult at this age. It becomes difficult for a person, to see that the body and mind is getting older. Older people have lesser patience. Because of this she might be feeling frustrated and sad. She might be having some health issues, which may be making her insecure and angry. Encourage her to talk about her past life experiences and when she is ruminating over it, validate her feelings. Try to understand the situations from her view point. All she needs is more love and respect. Give her responsibilities that she can shoulder. Involve her in family decisions. Make her feel important. Talk to her about "letting go" of things so that she will not keep worrying unnecessarily. Encourage her to pursue some hobbies or activities she could not undertake till now. Encourage her to have her own social circle. She needs to understand that if she becomes more positive and flexible about life, she can still enjoy life to the fullest and ultimately her anger will reduce.
