Body Dysmorphic Disorder - How It Can Be Treated?

Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of psychiatric disorder. It is when you cannot think about one or more defects or flaws in your appearance. These flaws are usually very minor and sometimes even unnoticeable. This is actually a much more serious disorder than many other people may think. This is because people with body dysmorphic disease may avoid many situations and also suffer from severe anxiety or shame. Here is everything you need to know about body dysmorphic disease.

Causes
Just like other psychiatric disorders, there is no known cause of body dysmorphic disease. However, there are a lot of factors, which increases your risk of developing it which include:

  1. Brain disorders: Many people with abnormal brain chemistry disorders suffer from body dysmorphic disease. 
  2. Genes: People whose blood relatives have this disease or have obsessive compulsive disorder are more likely to develop this disorder as well. 
  3. Environment: Cultural and social influences are a major cause of body dysmorphic disorder as well.

Symptoms
There are, however a lot of symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder, most of which are psychological in nature. They include: 

  1. Having a preoccupation with a flaw in the body, which is very minor or perhaps even unnoticeable.
  2. Beliefs that people are mocking you in relation to your flaw.
  3. Being a perfectionist

It is also worth noting that this obsession can affect any part of the body and can also include several parts of the body or different parts of the body at different times. Here are the possible treatments of body dysmorphic disorder.

Treatments
There are a variety of treatments, which a patient can opt for and a variety of methods of curing the problem. Here are the most common.

  1. Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is when a therapist tries to stop you from thinking about the flaw that you have been focusing on way too much. 
  2. SSRI: SSRI stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They are given in cases, where body dysmorphic disorder is caused by problems related to the brain chemical serotonin. 
  3. Hospitalization: This is a severe measure, but may need to be taken if you are in danger of harming somebody or you cannot perform daily activities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time help me.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Dear, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the? fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

How often in a year, can a smoker of cigarette's scale one's teeth, to get rid of nicotine stains?

How often in a year, can a smoker of cigarette's scale one's teeth, to get rid of nicotine stains?
All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. In case of smokers, if stains are more, scaling can be done once in 3 months also. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

My dad 76 yrs quit smoking after 50 yrs, it has been 3 months still he has tingling head, anxiety, tension etc.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Wow! congratulations sir for giving up a very bad habit after so many years of consumption. Don? t count the period of abstinence. It is not for record-keeping. Your success is remarkable for every day you have stayed away, forever. Now stay focused on the abstinence: today matters, not yesterday, not tomorrow? today matters. The headache, anxiety and tension will be there for some time until the process is complete. Think that you have given it up permanently and that there is no way you are going into it again. Remember all the savings, health benefits, the life extension, the love and joy of people around you, your own mental wellbeing, the restoring of many organs that have been damaged all these years, the clean air you are breathing right now, etc. Develop an attitude of gratitude; and pray with thanks to god for this great decision and his help. There are no milestones in this abstinence except the joy of being out of a dangerous and unhealthy habit. If you need to join a smokers? anonymous group to garner more support during your trying moments, do so. Bear the reactions to your quitting: it is sometimes the signs of the withdrawal, and the body is still craving the substance. Your determination will defeat these and you will be free, completely, when the process is finished.

HI lybrate-user, Frankly, there is no medication or pills to do this miracle otherwise we all would take it and forget the person in a minute. Time is the best healer in such cases and your own efforts. When someone is not even thinking about you do not waste your time and energy on that person, have some bigger goals in life. Why let a person who does not even care about your existence push you in depression. You deserve much better things in life. Try to be away from her contact, number, memories etc. Keep yourself busy socialize with your friends. Consult with me for therapy all the best.

I have an addiction to alcohol and after drinking I feel very good to play my guitar with singing. I think it's about two and a half years, I am continuously doing this. I drink about 300 ml daily at night. What should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Start with homoeopathic medication by Schwabe - Quercus Robur 1x/ thrice a day daily for 4 weeks. Start taking fresh, nutritive, balanced and healthy food consisting more of seasonal fruits, green vegetables, pulses, legumes, nuts, flaxseeds, 10-12 glasses of water in a day, 6-8hrs. of sleep daily and think healthy! Can also practice yoga which also helps in get rid up this habit and detoxify your body! Yoga Poses: -Marichyasana: It is performed by sitting in a comfortable position on the floor. Sit cross-legged on the floor and pull your right thigh towards your chest. Twist your body towards the right side. Repeat the twist on the left side. -Suryanamaskar: To begin with, hold your hands folded in front of you (as in the Indian Namaskara pose) and look at the sun. Raise your hands straight upwards in the folded position. Bend down and touch your feet. Stretch one leg outwards and arch your body backwards. Bend forward in the downward dog pose and then rest your entire body on your belly. Next, slowly lift up your torso in the cobra pose. Now, return back to the downward dog pose and all the other poses you have performed before it in the return sequence. Ultimately, you will return to the folded hands pose which you have started with. -Baddha Konasana is performed in a seated posture. Start by sitting with your legs stretched outwards. Now fold one leg and then the next, and place them with the soles of the feet in contact with each other. Remain seated in the position for as long as you can. -Balasana helps in combating alcoholism by strengthening the mind of the alcohol addict. This asana relieves mental stress and fatigue and improves blood circulation to the brain. To perform this asana, kneel down, touch the floor with your forehead and stretch out your hands in the front.

Usually in India women get married by 24 -28 years. But it is totally an individuals decision and a person should be physically, mentally, financially prepared for marriage and not for the sake of relatives. There are many famous, and not so famous, ordinary people who aren't married and live happily. Marriage is a kind of bond and commitment in which you need to work constantly to keep it alive with its pleasures and pains. So get married only if you wish and not for your relatives taunts and don't regret later. Don't be depressed for this. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your state of mind. Firstly, its never ok to compare you life with another person's. We all have different set of problems, which may be not apparent. Like others might feel that you are having a great life being single (not knowing how you actually feeling), same way you can have perceptions about their great life which infact may not be all that hunky dory. Problems are a part of everyone's life. You are young 28. Your previous relationships didn't work out for some reason. You need to have faith on god and most importantly yourself. Things will materialize soon and you will have a nice husband. Have you read the book" the secret" please read it. It says the way you think is the way you attract things from your enviroment. So think positive. Consult me for counseling.

Dear Mani, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.
