Hello Doctor, I am 28 yr, F. How to get rid of anxiety and nervousness and be at peace naturally? Please guide me,

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have not been dealing with your fears for a long time, perhaps. All unexpressed feelings will find some other way of expressing itself in the body. These will lead to psychological problems of various kinds. You need to be trained in dealing with emotions and retain it as an ongoing process in life. Meet a counselor and get some guidance in this regard. In the meantime, please follow an exercise regiment, eat well and keep good company. Make your last meal, as far as possible, a pure carbohydrate meal. Eat early and make it a small meal too. Avoid all foods that cause flatulence. Sleep on your left ear most of the night. Every time you feel fear talk to someone about it. Do some deep breathing, with your left nostril shut, and you will immediately calm down. If it gets too much, place your index finger on your shut lips and puff up your cheeks tightly with air and hold it for some time. The back pressure of the air will press the vagus nerve at the rear of the throat and immediately reduce the heart rate to calm you down. If it is worse, please visit a counselor and if that person advises then meet with a psychiatrist too. If this is a recent phenomenon, you could just do all of the recommendations suggested below too. If the fear is more from childhood, you will need to work with a counselor. The counselor will help you see what are the things frightening you, and why now. Sometimes a recent event may have triggered what was lurking under the surface for a long time. That too must be identified and dealt with. In that case you may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

I can empty my stomach in morning easily. But I feel likely to excrete when I am in stress like deciding to go outside for travel or entering college etc. I feel stomach upset. Why? Is there any natural remedy for this? What is this?

I worry a lot or you can say I usually have fear of irrational things like fear of happening bad incidents, fear of thinking bad thoughts. I had gone through so many ups and downs in last three years of my life and underwent huge stress. Now everything is ok but I use to fear if something bad happens and how shall I deal with it. I also use to suffer from digestive problems. Is there any correlation between thinking and stomach disorder? Last week in night I got up suddenly and felt difficulty in breathing, dropping heart beats and felt fear of death. This lasted up to 10 to 15 minutes and then I became normal. It happened first two years ago. I want to ask, Are all these kind of anxiety due to over thinking, or due to chronic stomach disorder or due to both? Pls give your valuable advice.

Dear lybrate-user, Excessive or ongoing worry and tension, an unrealistic view of problems, restlessness, irritability, muscle, tension, headaches, sweating, difficulty concentrating etc. Are all symptoms of a general anxiety disorder. Here are a few things you can try to reduce anxiety: - Deep Breathing: When you’re anxious, you breathe faster, but by breathing deeply from the diaphragm, you can reverse these symptoms and calm yourself down. -Meditation High levels of stress can cause physiological symptoms like indigestion. Exercise, eat well and sleep well in order to reduce stress. Difficulty breathing, dropping in heart rate and fear of death are a few symptoms of a panic attack. When you feel a panic attack coming try using coping statements. For example, instead of thinking" I'm having a heart attack" stop and tell yourself "I've gotten through this before and I can do it again" For further help please consult privately. Good Luck.

My mom passed away on 18th June after that my father and me both are in great depression. My dad is restricted to his bedroom and started consuming lot of alcohol. And about me I am unable to cry. I am feeling my mom with me. I am Afraid to go to anywhere even in toilet. I use to see some shadow images. I was with my mom for last two years for her care. When I close my eyes I use to see her indulging in day today activities. I always see her very young. Please Help.

You both are dangerously withdrawing into yourselves. You both need help and a counselor is absolutely necessary under these circumstances. If you do not deal with your loss and do some grief work, you are likely to waste away your lives. I am sure your mom will not like to see these developments. So meet someone and talk to that person about your feelings. This is what is called an 'episodal depression' where due to a very heart-rending event that you feel you cannot handle you tend to collapse into a depression. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your father. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 scorching 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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. Your mom will not come back and it is now the focus of the living that is very important. Let mom be proud of you wherever she is.

10 Reasons Why You Should Try Counselling Therapy

M.D Psychiatry , DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
10 Reasons Why You Should Try Counselling Therapy

Therapy is an ideal way of freeing your mind over a talk session with a therapist. Here are 10 reasons you should try therapy for a better health of mind.

  1. Therapy is for everybody: Therapy is not for crazy people with mental illness. It is good for anybody and everybody who wants to gain peace of mind.
  2. It is easier to talk to a stranger about some matters, than a friend: Only a stranger has the ability to recognize an irregularity in you, which your friends cannot. Therapists can dig into matters deeply and arrive at different conclusions.
  3. You get to learn more about yourself: During therapy, you talk about stuff and come to different realizations about things, which you never thought or cared about before, which allows you to discover a new side of yourself.
  4. You can get out of your comfort zone: Before going for therapy, you may feel awkward or strange to sit with a stranger and discuss personal matters. However, therapists are professionals and once you open up to them, you will be able to discuss everything with them comfortably.
  5. You feel supported: There are many issues in life, which seriously affect you, but no one pays heed to them. Your therapist listens and discusses everything you have in mind. Finally, you are heard.
  6. You develop better self-awareness: Therapy gives you a chance to stop for a moment and contemplate about certain areas of life, which you usually never cared about. What you never thought about might finally affect you, and you will try to improve on it.
  7. You feel better: You may have serious issues and might be feeling troubled. The therapist gives you suggestions and when you leave the clinic, you are bound to feel much lighter and calmer.
  8. You can focus on yourself: In the daily hustle bustle of life, you may be so occupied that you never get a chance to think about or focus on yourself. Weekly therapy gives you an hour, which is dedicated only to you to explore your feelings, thoughts and concerns about life.
  9. You may be pushing down yourself: Ignorance of serious issues causes a negative effect on your life and health, as well in the lives of your dear ones. Therapy allows you to bring all these ignored issues to light and after recognizing them properly, you can improve upon them.
  10. Smart, successful people believe in therapy: Therapy is for strong people who have the courage to approach a stranger with their personal issues. Majority of smart and successful people recognize the benefit of therapy and undergo the same for their own benefit.

Therapy is  very effective and allows you to express yourself honestly and benefits you in many ways.

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.

I have been suffering from social anxiety and depression. N few days back I came across a book 'The mood cure by Julia Ross. It suggests different treatments for anxiety through natural supplements along with the prescribed dosage. For the symptoms and problems that m going through, the author recommends a supplement named L- tyrosine and omega 3 fish oil. As well as 5-htp. These are all amino acids. I want to try them all but I still feel a bit doubtful since these are little expensive. Please suggest me if I should try them as per the prescribed dosage?

General Physician,
The anxiety can interfere significantly with daily routines, occupational performance, or social life, making it difficult to complete school, interview and get a job, and have friendships and romantic relationships. Social anxiety disorder usually begins in childhood or adolescence, and children are prone to clinging behavior, tantrums, and even mutism. These need psychotherapy and counselling

You need to calm down. You are stressing yourself a lot and maybe thinking much about the breakup. Try to focus your energies and attention to other positive things and involve yourself in activities that help you stay happy. Exercise daily.

I am 40 year old male, just stopped smoking for 3 weeks now. I am still having the urge but typically made up my mind not to touch cigarettes any more. How long does it take it take for the urge to go get into zero factor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on stopping the smoking. Every day is important in containing this habit. If you are looking at a point zero for total absence of the urge, you are looking at an abstinence of three years without relapse. Here? s a piece of very good advice however: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again? but the three years from the new date must be your starting point for the three-year layoff. The body has a lasting memory and even after three years you could start the habit and get into addictive levels easily. I am only saying that the urge will disappear after three years of smoke-free abstinence. I hope that is clear. The true resolution to the addiction lies in a concept called the script issue, which will resolve why you are killing yourself by slow poisoning and give you better reasons and drive to quit. Since you have bp, smoking is contraindicative and there must have been other factors driving you to be so harmful to yourself. Of course I do not know for how long you have been in this habit. 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.

How to do away with fear and existential anxiety permanently without taking any pills. Its making me go paranoid and nuts.

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Well, if your anxiety is overwhelming (which it seems from your phrasing the question & your medicine Melzap-MD 0.25 mg) you will need a combined approach of medicines & lifestyle changes. First is deliberately put yourself in way of your FEARS Second keep a diary & make a list of all your fears. Grade these fears 1-10 (1 being highest & 10 being lowest) Third, go to a Psychiatrist & keep discussing your progress in conquering this fear hierarchy/fear list. He/she can give you valuable inputs/modifications/suggestions to make your progress easier & faster. Lastly with suggestion of Psychiatrist, take regular course of medications to hasten your recovery. All the Best.
