Impulse Control Disorders - What Causes It?

Impulse Control Disorders - What Causes It?

A certain psychiatric condition which causes a person to be functionally impaired in social and occupational settings is known as Impulse Control Disorder. Most of you are granted with the ability to think before you act but it isn't the case for people suffering with such a condition. People diagnosed with this condition are not able to withstand the urge to do something detrimental to themselves or other people.

This condition is similar to other disorders such as kleptomania, compulsive gambling and pyromania to name a few. Although people suffering from this disorder do not plan their acts, the acts they do perform generally fulfill their conscious wishes. Other disorders of such similar nature like Kleptomania and ADHD, which are associated with difficulty in controlling impulses but that is not their chief feature. Patients of impulse control disorder find it highly distressful and are hence often seen to lose control of their actions and consequently their lives.

What causes this disorder?

Some medical practitioners are of the opinion that this disorder is a subgroup of other conditions such as stress, anxiety, OCD and other such. Scientists and researchers are not particularly sure what causes this condition but have determined that it can be caused due to a combination of physiological, emotional and psychological factors pertaining to cultural and societal aspects. Also, certain brain structures linked to emotions and memory functions in and around the frontal lobe are linked to planning functions and impulses.
Some studies show that certain hormones such as testosterone which are associated with aggression and violence may also play a role in forming such disorder. Aggressive and violent behaviors are apparent in people suffering from this disorder. Certain studies have shown a connection between certain forms of seizure disorders and aggressive impulsive behaviors.

People with such disorders are also more likely to contract addiction and mood disorders. Antidepressants are usually prescribed in treating such disorders.

5 Ways To Deal With Anxiousness In Kids!

5 Ways To Deal With Anxiousness In Kids!

Worrying is a natural tendency among children. While some worrying helps children to excel, too much worrying can lead to anxiety related disorders. From friendship woes to homework to fear of failure, there could be a lot of factors that can lead to anxiousness in a kid. This problem is mostly witnessed in school going, children. Some of the common symptoms that are portrayed include the need to be perfectionists, seeking of constant reassurance, getting sick worrying too much, scared of participating in a group event.

How to prepare your child to overcome anxiety?

  1. Help them prepare: One major cause of anxiousness in a child is ill preparation. Be it tests or essays, if a child has not prepared well, he tends to get nervous and suffer from anxiousness. The solution is to teach them various study techniques such as flashcards and quizzes. If this is done regularly and reviewed meticulously, your child will get over the fear of failing and perform better.
  2. Teach them to focus: Losing focus is a major tendency among kids who tend to suffer from anxiety related disorders. Keeping the concentration going is a major skill that needs to be taught by parents. Kids often go blank during tests thinking others are far smarter than they are. Some good method to tech focus is to teach them reverse counting, slow breathing technique and frequent consumption of water.
  3. Pass on the anxiety: Anxiousness has to be passed in form of something. Certain activities, therefore play great strokes in addressing anxiousness. Teach your kids to distress in the form of TV or teach them to write when they are anxious. This not only takes off anxiety from the equation, it helps a kid to relax without the fear of failure.
  4. Reassurance: Kids suffering from anxiousness often need repeated reassurance about the task in hand. The task here for a parent is to make their kid understand that failure will not impact their relationship with their parents. Often the failure of letting someone down makes a kid anxious. Constant reassurance will curtail the tendency. This being said, parents should ensure that this doesn’t become a habit for the kid. The idea is to make them comfortable and not letting your child dependent on you.
  5. Relaxation techniques: A study published by the Journal of School Counseling argued that kids who practice relaxation techniques are far less likely to suffer from anxiety and stress related disorders as compared to their peers. Some of the relaxation techniques that can be easily learned and practised include breathing exercises, meditation, yoga and so on. This exercise helps children to focus and concentrate more.


 

Depression - Can It Be Due To Lack of Nutrition?

General Physician, Pune
Depression - Can It Be Due To Lack of Nutrition?

Depression can be caused because of many reasons. However, it can get worse or be triggered due to nutritional deficiency. However nutritional deficiencies and depression act in a vicious cycle. Depressed people often receive less or improper food which leads to malnutrition which again aggravate depression. Thus, both conditions should be treated simultaneously. Read further to know how:

  1. Omega-3 fatty acids: An Omega-3 unsaturated fat deficiency can cause depression. That shows exactly how much fish, salmon, halibut or flaxseeds and walnuts we have to expend to be at an ideal level. These basic minerals lessen aggravation and take up a basic part in our mental health, particularly memory and disposition.
  2. Vitamin DVitamin D deficiency is a noteworthy problem that specialists and general physicians perceive to be dangerous. This lack has been connected to depression, dementia and mental imbalance. The majority of our Vitamin D levels drop off during the fall and winter months, since daylight is the best source of vitamin D.
  3. MagnesiumOdds are great that you are magnesium inadequate since a lot of people are. Sugar, phosphoric acid, perpetual anxiety, anti-infection agents and diuretics contain magnesium. Magnesium is infrequently alluded to as the anxiety counteracting agent.
  4. Vitamin B complex: B vitamins like vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 have some great medical advantages, including decreased heart diseases and healthy skin and nails. Again, a vitamin B deficiency may affect your emotional wellness. Every one in four depressed or stressed woman suffers from vitamin B12 deficiency.
  5. FolateIndividuals with a low folate level have just a seven percent reaction to treatment with antidepressants. Those with high folate levels have a reaction of 44 percent. That is the reason a lot of specialists are currently endorsing a folate called Deplin to treat dejection.
  6. Amino acidsAmino acids are the building blocks of protein that help your mind work efficiently. An amino acid deficiency may make you feel slow, foggy, unfocused, and discouraged. Great sources of amino acids include meat, eggs, beans, seeds, and nuts.
  7. IronIron deficiency is truly common in women. Around 20 percent of the women and 50 percent of pregnant women are iron deficient. Just 3 percent of men are iron deficient. The most widely recognized type of side effect is the decreasing number of red platelets brought on by the lack of iron. The side effects include weakness, concentration issues and a foggy mind.
  8. ZincZinc is used by more proteins (a person has more than 300) than some other minerals. It is important to most of the body’s systems. It also helps our stomach to determine what food items or nutrients to keep and what to dispose off.

Therefore, it is very important for a person to consume the right amount of nutrients that a human needs. Their deficiency not only causes depression, but also many other diseases and illnesses.

Anxiety - How To Prevent It With Homeopathy?

It is normal to feel nervous before an interview or be anxious about something, but letting that fear take over you is not normal. If your worries and stress interfere with your day-to-day life, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Fear not, this is treatable with homeopathy.

What is Anxiety Disorder?

Anxiety disorder can be understood as a group of mental disorders characterised by intense feelings of anxiety and fear. Anxiety can be best defined as a worry about future events. This condition can lead to physical symptoms, such as a fast heart rate, uneasiness and shakiness. 

Types of Anxiety Disorders:

People often have more than one anxiety disorder.

Conditions Homeopathic medicines can cure:

1. The homeopathic medicines are suitable for people who are easily stressed, oversensitive, insecure, irritable and despondent. They also help in dealing with the after effects of grief and fright. Physical ailments such as fatigue, dullness and lack of energy that are a result of anxiety can also be treated with these medicines.

2. There are homeopathic medicines for sudden, intense anxiety attacks and for post-traumatic anxiety. They also helps in dealing with after effects of anxiety such as memory weakness, restlessness, oversensitivity and spells of rage.

3. The homeopathic medicines are also helpful in cases where anxiety makes a person insecure and unsure of what to do. When you're anxious, you are likely to crave for something sweet and feel very hot. Both these are cyclic symptoms of anxiety and can worsen the situation if not dealt properly. However, homeopathic medicines help calm the digestive effects of sugar and cool the body to keep anxiety levels in check. 

4. Homeopathic medicines also work well on people who are worried about safety and security. If issues like health, money and break-ins are the cause of your anxiety, homeopathic remedies are ideal for you. They also helps deal with restlessness.

5. When it comes to anxiety, there are some homeopathi medicones which very well suit the people who are scared of change and over controlling. This anxiety is accompanied by excessive sweating due to any exertion and stubbornness. Such people are also often afraid of animals and of the dark and get easily confused.

Tips For A Happy Marriage!

There are some tips for a meaningful and happy marriage or intimate relationship:

  • The person should not be pressured to marry early. He/she should be encouraged to mature emotionally and to establish themselves in their chosen profession.
  • The couple should spend one year into a relationship before they marry. They should not marry until they established a meaningful relationship and resolved major difficulties.
  • The couple should complement each other on daily basis. If they have to criticize, do it lovingly. The couple should be encouraged to relate openly and honestly rather than to play traditional dating.
  • The couple should be creative and flexible in their roles and mutual responsibilities, not only during the initial phase of marriage but throughout the marriage.
  • The couple should make healthy physical relations. They should have a strong and viable marriage relationship before they have children and they should make jointly the decision of parenthood.
  • The most important tip to a couple is to have patience and be a good listener. They should understand each other’s point of view. The couple should spend quality time
  • The couple should not make personal life public. Speak of your spouse publically in respectable terms. When we show respect, we will receive in its kind.
  • The couple should handle financial issues with care. The couple should pool their money together, budget together, spend together and save
  • The couple should not bring up the mistakes of past. Both should not get angry at the same time. Whenever you have done something wrong, be ready to admit it and ask for forgiveness.

This is very big problem for me, whenever I get too much angry and fought with someone then I get tears very much. And others people thinks that I got scared and I'm weak but I'm more powerful then my opponent. Please tell me whats the solution for getting tears.

The solution is very simple- do not get angry! you are lucky that your body knows it is not good for your health to get very angry- and if you do get very angry- your body lets you down. So, it is going to be very good, if you avoid such a situation by all means. This is not going to be counted as your weakness. If you can stay calm in a highly provocative situation- this is a strength not all of us have! but, very, very difficult to achieve. It is only with practice you can gain /learn this control. You will benefit from meditation also. Anulom-vilom pranayam, e.g. You need to visit nearest patanjali chikitsalaya for help. You practice all that is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. It is excellent to drive depression, negative thinking out of your system. Not necessary, you have to be present in front of your tv at 5 am. Begin by switching on your tv just whatever time you get up and start practicing as being taught. Gradually when you regulate your sleeping time, you will be able to get up next morning at 5 and will be able to do complete workout. The time you spend here will actually be an investment that will remove tension, stress, etc. Leading to increased positivity.

  5. Feeling restless and irritable
  6. Watching out for danger signs in everything
  7. Feeling mentally blank

In such cases, professional help is required. Certain behavior therapies can be undertaken for eliminating severe anxiety.
