PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder is a confusion that develops in a few people who have encountered a shocking, unnerving, or dangerous event. It is natural to be scared during and after a traumatic event. Fear triggers numerous brief and instant changes in the body to protect us from the threat or to stay away from it. Here are a few myths and facts about PTSD:
Myth 1: Everyone who has been through a life threatening event will develop PTSD.
Fact: In reality, a great many people who are exposed to such events will not get PTSD in most of the cases, and a lot of them see a decrease in the symptoms gradually over the months or even days. The number of individuals who may be diagnosed after an event that can result in PTSD ranges from under ten percent of people after twelve months of exposure to general trauma. Where as, thirty seven percent of the individuals are exposed to deliberate trauma.
Myth 2: People who are weak, get PTSD.
Fact: It is not clear why a few people get PTSD and others do not. Women are twice as prone to be determined to have it than men are, however, women will probably have numerous mental issues since they will probably look for help, and accordingly get an analysis. Individuals who are presented to interpersonal injury, for example, rape or fighting, will probably have more pronounced PTSD symptoms than survivors of mishaps, accidents or natural disasters.
Myth 3: After a specific measure of time, one should be over the trauma.
Fact: Depending on the nature of the trauma, it might stick around. Furthermore, in some cases, a person may seem to get over it. However, something triggers the recollections and they get tormented by symptoms again. Additionally, as individuals age, the movement that keeps the long-term memory far away from the brain, starts to diminish, exposing the person with seasoned recollections.
Myth 4: The trauma was such a long time ago that it is past the point where it is possible to recover from the trauma.
Fact: The good news is that it is never past the point where it is possible to address your shock or trauma. In fact, most of the patients are middle-aged child sexual abuse survivors. There is a great deal of reasons that somebody would hold back from getting treatment, yet the decades isolating them from their trauma are not an obstruction by any means.
Myth 5: I should have the capacity to handle this myself.
Fact: Frequently it takes more strength to get help than to battle alone, especially for specific events. Cases of individuals who might be particularly hesitant to connect include men who have been conditioned by the society to not express sentiments or show helpless. Marginalised people have a more troublesome time looking for somebody who can relate to them. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

मिर्गी उन बिमारियों में से है जिनका पहचान काफी पहले ही हो चुकी थी. आज हम मिर्गी के लक्षण, कारण और उपचार को लेकर बात करेंगे. विशेषज्ञों के अनुसार मिर्गी की बीमारी तंत्रिका तंत्र में विकार आने के कारण होती है. तंत्रिका तंत्र का सीधा सम्बन्ध मस्तिष्क से है. जब मस्तिष्क में विकार आता है तो इसकी वजह से तंत्रिका तंत्र प्रभावित होता है. फिर मिर्गी का अटैक आता है और पीड़ित का शरीर अकड़ जाता है.
इस बीमारी को लेकर पहले समाज में कई तरह की भ्रांतियां प्रचलित थीं. हलांकि अब भी कई लोग इसे भुत-प्रेत से जोड़कर देखते हैं. कई बार तो मिर्गी के मरीज को पागल की तरह भी ट्रीट किया जाता है. यहाँ ये बताना आवश्यक है कि मिर्गी भी बस एक बीमारी के सिवा कुछ नहीं है. इस लिए इसके मरीजों को तुरंत किसी चिकित्सक के पास ले जाना चाहिए. हम मिर्गी के के विभिन्न पहलुओं पर प्रकाश डाल रहे हैं.
मिर्गी होने का क्या कारण है?
शरीर के सभी अंगों की संवेदनशीलता मस्तिष्क द्वारा तंत्रिका तंत्र को दिए गए निर्देश के अनुसार ही काम करती है. मस्तिष्क में स्थित न्यूरॉन्स ही तंत्रिका तंत्र को सिग्नल देते हैं. लेकिन जब इस प्रक्रिया में बाधा पहुंचती है यानी कि न्यूरॉन्स तंत्रिका तंत्र को सही निर्देश नहीं दे पाते हैं तब मरीज को मिर्गी का दौरा पड़ता है. इसमें शरीर का अंग विशेष कुछ देर के लिए निष्क्रिय हो जाता है. इसके कुछ संभावित कारण निम्लिखित हैं-
1. न्यूरोलॉजिकल प्रॉब्लम्स जैसे कि अल्जाईमर.
2. अनुवांशिक कारण यानि आपके खानदान में किसी को रहा हो या हो.
3. ब्रेन ट्यूमर
4. जन्म से ही मस्तिष्क में ऑक्सीजन का आवागमन पूर्ण रूप से बंद होने पर.
5. मस्तिष्क ज्वर और इन्सेफेलाइटिस के के संक्रमण से.
6. ब्रेन स्ट्रोक के कारण ब्लड वेसल्स को नुकसान पहुँचने से.
7. कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड की विषाक्तता से.
8. अत्यधिक मात्रा में ड्रग लेना.
क्या हैं मिर्गी के लक्षण?
जाहिर है हर बिमारी के कुछ न कुछ लक्षण होते हैं जिसके आधार पर हम इसकी पहचान करते हैं. ठीक उसी तरह मिर्गी के भी कुछ प्रारंभिक लक्षण हैं. इन लक्षणों के नजर आते ही आपको डॉक्टर के पास जाना चाहिए. हलांकि जब मिर्गी के दौरे पड़ते हैं तो एकदम स्पष्ट हो जाता है.
1. मरीज का पूर्ण रूप से बेहोश हो जाना या आंशिक रूप से मूर्छित हो जाना.
2. अपना जीभ खुद से काटना या असंयमित हो जाना.
3. सर और आँख की पुतलियों का लगातार घूमना.
4. हाथ पैर और चेहरे की मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव उत्पन्न होना.
5. मूर्छा से उठने के बाद मरीज का उलझन में होना
6. पेट में गड़बड़ी होना.
7. चिकित्सकीय पहचान: एक्सपर्ट्स का कहना है कि इन सब लक्षणों के बावजूद मरीज का मेडिकल करने के बाद ही उसके रोग का निर्धारण किया जाता है. डॉक्टर मरीज़ के पल्स रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर को चेक करते हैं. फिर इसके बाद न्यूरोलॉजिकल साइन का भी परिक्षण करते हैं. इसके साथ ही इस रोग का पता ई.ई.जी, सी.टी.स्कैन या एम.आर.आई और पेट के द्वारा लगाते हैं.
क्या है इसका उपचार और कैसे करें रोकथाम?
मिर्गी एक बेहद संवेदनशील बिमारी है. इसके उपचार के लिए सबसे महत्वपूर्ण उपाय बताया जाता है कि जब भी मिर्गी का दौरा आए उस समय सीजर को नियंत्रित करना. इसे नियंत्रित करने के लिए एन्टी एपिलेप्टिक ड्रग थेरपी और कुछ सर्जरी होती है. हलांकि डॉक्टर्स का ये भी कहना है कि जिन लोगों पर दवाई का असर नहीं होता है उन्हें सर्जरी करने की सलाह दी जाती है. मिर्गी के मरीजों को ज्यादा वसा वाले खाने से दूर ही रहना चाहिए. खाने में ज्यादा से ज्यादा कार्बोहाइड्रेट वाले खाद्य पदार्थों का इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए. इससे सीजर की आवृत्ति में कमी आती है.
रोकथाम के उपाय
आपको जानकर हैरानी हो सकती है कि अभी भी मिर्गी के कारणों का ठीक से पता नहीं लगाया जा सका है. हलांकि शिशुओं के जन्म के दौरान जेनेटिक स्क्रीनिंग की सहायता से माँ को बच्चे में इसके होने का पता लगाया जा सकता है. इससे बचने के लिए आप इस बात का ध्यान रखें की आपके सर में चोट न लगे. इसके अलावा आप ये उपाय कर सकते हैं-
1. जितना हो सके तनाव से दूर रहें.
2. खाने में संतुलित आहार लें.
3. डॉक्टर द्वारा दी गई दवा का सही तरीके से सेवन करते रहें.
4. नियमित रूप से चिकित्सक से सलाह लेते रहें.
5. पर्याप्त नींद लेना भी अत्यंत जरुरी है.

Drug addiction is an addiction of a very severe kind. This causes the sufferer i.e. the drug addict to seek and use drugs compulsively despite the destructive consequences to themselves and those around them. This is known as a chronic brain disease because of the functional and structural changes it causes in the brain. It is the overpowering dependence on illegal or legal medications and drugs. One cannot quit taking drugs just by strong will or good intentions. Ayurveda's holistic method combines exercises, meditation, and herbal medicines to cure addiction towards drugs.
- Panchakarma Therapies-Only an ayurvedic expert should perform the panchakarma therapies and rituals on you. It promotes cleanliness and helps in detoxifying the body. These therapies are done using various herbs and oils in accordance with the ancient traditions to eliminate negative conditions.
- Virechana-It is the most useful Panchakarma therapy to treat addiction. Virechana is known to cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract and purify the blood of toxins of a period of a few days. It helps decontaminate your spleen, stomach, liver, kidneys, colon, intestines and sweat glands through varied herbs and laxatives such as castor oil, mango juice, raisins, cow's milk, psyllium seeds, flaxseed husk, prune and senna.
- Rasayana therapies-Rasayana therapy is another very useful Ayurvedic treatment for treating drug abuse and addiction. It is based upon the transmutation and conservation of energy to improve the mental as well as physical characteristics in order to increase your body's natural metabolic processes while enhancing your immune system and brain function. Rasayana therapy consists of intricate face, head and full body massages which are combined with medicated creams and herb oils. This therapy is also useful to remove artificial aging which occurs due to prolonged drug abuse.
- Yoga-The chaotic chemicals are known to wreak havoc on the drug addict's brain during the process of recovery. Resorting to exercise or yoga will help generate extra endorphins which are very helpful for clarity. To recover from drug addiction, you must join a structured yoga class along with other ayurvedic therapies. Yoga is beneficial since it stimulates every part of your body without applying too much stress on any one part. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.
