Cupping therapy in schizophrenia???

Cupping therapy in schizophrenia???
Cupping therapy in schizophrenia???

Schizophrenia is a mental illness characterized by disordered thinking, delusions (fixed beliefs that are odd or highly unusual), and hallucinations (hearing sounds and seeing things that don’t exist for others). One of western medical opinion has found that there is chemical balance in the brains of schizophrenics is different from that of people without schizophrenia (CHEMICAL IMBALANCE). Cupping therapy on the back is mainly directed to the central line (spinal nerves and parasympathetic nerves) and the sympathetic nerves beside it and cupping centre on head may be have results in chemical balance.
General and localized effects of this therapy strengthen the healing power against disease and, together with a healthy diet and psychotherapy, cure or prevent disease completely.
Here i am not saying to give any promise, its just my observation on some suffering patients and results. As schizophrenia may have multiple causes behind the sufferer so can be treated according to cause and with others medication too. But my view in such cases is that symptoms treatment should be given preference compare to cause.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Am a chain smoker. Now am controlled it. But daily one or two cigarettes smoking continuous. What the way to am stopping. If any nikodin flavour chocolates available in store.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Even one or two cigarettes are harmful. Nicotine tabs are available but may not be in flavors you desire. Nicotine chewing gums are also there. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Most commonly, diagnoses of acute painful spinal conditions are nonspecific, such as neck or back strain, although injuries may affect any of several pain-sensitive structures, which include the disk, facet joints, spinal musculature, and ligamentous support. The origin of chronic back pain is often assumed to be degenerative conditions of the spine; however, controlled studies have indicated that any correlation between clinical symptoms and radiological signs of degeneration is minimal or nonexistent. Inflammatory arthropathy, metabolic bone conditions, and fibromyalgia are cited in others as the cause of chronic spine-related pain conditions. Homoeopathy offers quick, safe and permanent cure for any such conditions, you have to give your detailed case history to select correct medicine for you. Also change your lifestyle to a healthy one, go for regular exercise, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, try to relax for few minutes between work.

I had a past of depression and anxiety for which I've taken clonazepam and alprazolam 1 mg per day as advised by the psychiatrist. Nd I got addicted to and took that dose for 3 years and then I started withdrawaling slowly and switch to etizolam presently I am taking etizolam 0.25 mg per day. I've already had immense Amount of side effects and now had an auto immune disease. Can you suggest me a replacement for etizolam 0.25 as I want to quit this medication too.

Dear it is good that you want to go off medication. Best thing to do is to slowly gradually reduce same medicine instead of replacing it with another. At the same time, build your inner immunity with capsule Reimmugen (colostrum) whcih is a natural product and it will help you overcome the side effects, modulate immunity and also give you the physical strength required to become healthier. Start meditation to further strength mental and emotional state. Regrds.

I have been addicted to smoking from last two years. How can I get out from this addiction can you pls suggest me.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Hi , first and foremost, I would advise you to remain mentally strong and think positive. In order that you are not obsessively compelled to think negative and imagine stuff, it is important for you to assure yourself time and again that everything is perfectly ok and distract yourself to either watching, visualizing or doing something meaningful, relaxing and one that gives you a sense of inner strength and positive energy/ vibes. Remember, its only a fear that you need to dispel off and understand clearly that there is absolutely nothing in reality to be afraid about. Listening to a soothing and inspiring music also helps you to stay calm and relaxed. Do plan your day, listing out the things to be achieved and get going about them one by one. Do be on a healthy and balanced diet with focus on leafy greens and fresh fruits. Take plenty of water daily and stay hydrated. Keep your lifestyle streamlined and do walking/ exercise, yoga et al in fresh air. Get yourself exposed to the early morning sunlight for 5 to 10 minutes daily. Keep your stress levels low and stay relaxed and focused. Enjoy your favorite yet lightweight films/ serials/ cartoons et al as you like to watch and get some interesting yet light stories to read while you retire to bed. You may take a glass of warm milk with a pinch of fresh turmeric powder and a tsp of honey mixed to the same, at bedtime. At the same time, I would also advise you to see a psychologist in person. He/ she may require prescribing you an anxiolytic suitably that you can use for a couple of days and one that helps tranquil your mind and help you control your thoughts. Hope this helps. All the very best.

See you think and perceive that you have lost everything. Take time to reflect and practically evaluate whether you have actually lost everything or its just in your mind even if something did not go the way you wanted it to be, then also its never to late to start again. Quite possible this time you do better than last time. Find ways to realize your potential and act on it too. All the best.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are in an anger-related depression and need to meet with a counselor immediately and if that person feels you need to meet with a doctor too, you must do so. You must cooperate with both therapies and be consistent. I suggest that you visit these professionals along with your parents because their involvement is quite critical to your recovery. Would you know what may be causing so much anger and that you feel you cannot express it for various reasons? If it is of recent origin, you could easily pin-point it and take care of it. But I suspect that it may have to do with something in your developmental years, or your family background. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don?t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear , this is not a problem of your workman ship or talent. Your company cannot afford you and therefore, they told you to quit. They gave you just a reason. That reason does not mean that you are not talented. There are many opportunities in front of you. In fact for your experience, you should get another job which pays more. Please do not dwell in past. Your past company do not deserve you. Also god wants you to work for more salary and in good atmosphere. Think positive. I want to talk to you. Please contact me and I will help you out of this situation. Take care.

It is just a lapse in concentration caused at your age by adolescence and hormonal imbalances. These normally last for two years and then settle down, on its own. But you could develop bad habits in this time and get into insecurity and depression for the rest of your life. It is therefore very important to learn how to deal with this situation and come out with flying colors. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every day. 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 breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

It only feels like so. But if you make up your mind and follow some strategies, you will be able to give it up for good. You have certainly made a good decision and you can go about it in the following manner. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking.

Mr. Lybrate-user, firstly, I congratulate you for having taken very good care of all those multiple problems you are suffering from. Secondly, I must commend the detailed manner in which you have described your present status. Thirdly, you have managed your diabetes pretty well. For your lifestyle & busy work schedule, an hba1c of 7% is quite good. You might be able to bring it down marginally, to 6.5% if you take care of your diet a bit more meticulously & exercise regulary. Beware of hypos when you exercise. All the best!
