I am schizophrenic. I am on medication. I am having problem in coping with day to day activities. I can't concentrate much longer on anything at my own although can sit long for classes when taught by others. I feel as if something is not right, as if I am not leading a normal life. The time I am expecting some kind of experience things turn out to be so different that I feel uncomfortable with them. I tried a lot to get out of this situation but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help me.

Dear lybrate-user, Right now there are no treatment, tablet or food, to cure or reverse Alzheimer memory loss. Further deterioration can be prevented by tablets and food. Since Alzheimer is a gradually downhill course, it is worth preserving what is left of brain functions. All healthy foods are good for both physical and brain health. Why don't you join local Alzheimer's disease society? It will give you ideas of various persons trying in vain various things. In order to find a cure, many things are tried. Some optimistic reports will be there. If it is not significant or not replicated in others, it will not be useful clinically.

Acute Stress Disorder - How To Manage It?

Acute Stress Disorder - How To Manage It?

What is Acute Stress Disorder
Acute stress reaction usually happens when some stressful events occur. Acute usually indicates that the symptoms occur quickly and do not last for a long time. Symptoms, such as anxiety and stress occur when exposed to stressful events. It is believed that acute stress disorder occurs after unexpected crisis like traumatic events, serious accidents, domestic violence, sexual assaults or sudden bereavement. Acute stress reactions are commonly seen in people who have experienced major disasters or terrorist incidents.

Symptoms of Acute Stress Reaction
Symptoms of the condition develop very quickly, within minutes to hours in response to a stressful condition. Some of the symptoms are:

  1. Anxiety, mood changes, emotional trauma (ups and downs), poor concentration and sleep, irritability and the desire to be alone
  2. Unpleasant recurrent dreams
  3. Avoiding situations and people who may cause anxiety and stress
  4. Emotionally numb
  5. Nausea, palpitations, headaches, abdominal pain, difficulty in breathing and chest pain are usually caused by the stress hormones like epinephrine.

Management of Acute Stress Disorder
Generally treatment is not required as the symptoms go when the stressful episode is over. Talking to family and friends or understanding the symptoms is helpful. Some people might experience extended symptoms. The following can be done:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This is the therapy where a person can talk to an experienced therapist to understand the patterns and the triggers that charge the problem. The aim of the therapist is to change the way a person thinks and help him avoid the thoughts and be more realistic and calm. Usually when CBT is used for acute stress disorder patients then it is termed as trauma focused CBT.

Counselling: This is usually done when the symptoms are more severe or persistent. It is helpful as it helps to explore the way to deal with the stress and its symptoms. Psychiatrists help by counselling the people and also there are many online resources, which might be helpful. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

I hv been using clofranil 10 mg half a tablet for last 4 years, to control anxiety, can I stop using it now.

MD - Psychiatry

I hv been using clofranil 10 mg half a tablet for last 4 years, to control anxiety, can I stop using it now.
Please do not stop the medicine all by yourself. Please talk to your doctor and learn whether it will be a good idea to stop it. If the doctor's opinion is that you should continue, try to learn the reasons for the advice. Psychotropic drugs are useful treatments for psychiatric symptoms but often are not curative. To continue to get benefits of the treatment one needs to continue consuming the medicines. If you need to stop the medicine for some specific reason e.g. drug side effects or allergic reactions or adverse interactions with another drug that some other doctor has prescribed or contraindication in some other medical condition etc then ask the doctor to help you taper the dose off. Frequently, stopping psychotropic drugs all at once can produce a "drug withdrawal reaction" and to prevent that, one must taper the dose 'gradually'. Please ask the doctor to supervise the gradual taper. Only the doctor can tell you what 'gradual' can be, from his clinical experience.

I have heard that dark chocolate is good for depression. Will I get same benefit if I take cocoa powder. Thanks.
Dark chocolate along will not help in depression. Try following things to manage stress and over come depression. What you are feeling might be due to conic stress, result of our fast life style. You could also explain this as feeling burnout. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Tension Headache - How Homeopathy Can Help You?

BHMS, MD - Alternate Medicine
Homeopath, Nagpur
Tension Headache - How Homeopathy Can Help You?

Stress is brought on by specific circumstances or occasions in a person’s life. These situations make them feel disappointed, angry, stressed or even restless. The stress reaction is different for every individual. However, it is common that a similar occasion can regularly cause divergent reactions:

  1. Public speaking
  2. Pressure from due dates and deadlines
  3. Difficult conditions in the family or friendly settings
  4. Social circumstances
  5. Changes in the workplace

Anxiety, then again, is a general feeling of nervousness or fear. However, the source of anxiety of is not clearly defined or characterised. Anxiety disorders are a bunch of psychiatric conditions that cause unreasonable tension. Headache on the other hand are the most common while dealing with stressful situations or anxiety attacks. Homeopathy is viable because it is a holistic medicinal practice that cures the individual all in all. It addresses and cures the root of the issues that lead to diseases and disorders.

Homeopathy has cure for this condition as we take of mind and body both, so its complete cure for headache.

One of the most common reasons people seek homeopathic care is to relieve the pain associated with chronic headaches.homeopathy helps treat and prevent recurrent tension headaches.

"I’m so stressed out!”  
“I can’t go to work. I’m stressed.”  
“I’ve got a stress headache.”  
“It’s just stress.” 

These are statements you hear all the time aren’t they? You’ve probably even said one or two of them yourself. But what do people actually mean when they use this word, stress? Does everyone mean the same thing? 

In homeopathy, the practitioner is always inter­ested to understand what another person is actually experiencing. Of course, we can only understand by interpreting what we observe from their behaviour, in addition to listening to them explain what their inner experience is using their own words. 

However they often use words in quite loose and general ways, so to grasp what someone else is really feeling we need to ask them for examples, and to get them to describe their experience in as much detail as possible. 

When we do that, we find that individuals have quite different inter­pretations of the word stress. For some it’s a feeling of anxiety, a kind of nervousness. For other’s, it’s primarily a kind of agitation. For yet others it’s a feeling of not being able to cope. In fact, there is a wide range of emotions and inner feelings associated with this word “stress”.

Biologically, a stressor is anything which impacts on an organism requiring it to adapt  or to defend its integrity. In human beings that impact may come from within, or from without. Physical disease processes can alter the inner environment of the body and these alterations require adjustments to be made.

In most circumstances we feel stressed when dealing with change. However, clearly everyone will experience similar situations differently, some feeling unruffled. Even those who are experiencing a situation as stressful will have different thoughts and different sensations from each other.

As always, the homeopathic approach recognises this and therefore there is no single remedy for stress, or even small handful of remedies for stress. The most appropriate remedy will be the one which best matches the individual’s experience and characteristics. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

It might be due to early onset of dementia or you might have been in depression secondary to your cardiac problems. Analyze yourself properly that you are suffering with the symptoms of depression or it is purely forgetting. A few tips to reduce memory deterioration in case of dementia is that a research says that taking almonds on a regular basis will keep your brain healthy that in turn stops fading memory. Taking a spoon of turmeric powder in a glass of water or in any form of food will help your memory stops fading.
