How to treat stuttering. I talk normally like a normal person but I stutter a bit with few words. And that is the reason I speak alone with myself sometimes to improve my words. But my family find it crazy. And I do not do it in public like a complete mad but sometimes it gets unintentionally. Tell me how to stop talking to myself. I wonder a lot about many things. And now this is bigger problem than stuttering.

MD - Psychiatry

Stammering or stuttering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next.

Thanks for the information. Some loss of memory is accetable when we age. Daily brisk walking, meditation and deep breathing exercises are very useful for good functioning of brain. You can also solve some puzzles that come in newspapers or magazines. Playing chess with a friend is a helpful strategy. Keeping a calendar near your bedside with important events marked is helpful. You can also start maintaing diary and write notes of all your activity.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Besides the pills, you can go for counselling to get to the root cause of the problem and develop skills to feel confident and in control. Meditation yoga homeopathy and ayurveda are excellent alternative treatment options too which dont have side effects.

All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

DPM, MBBS

All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

An event or an accident that leaves us overwhelmed can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD. A particularly stressful situation or event that has created terror or been overly dramatic or dangerous can lead to stress and anxiety long after the individual has physically come out of the situation. This kind of a traumatic condition is usually what characterises PTSD. This condition is something that is persistent, and can linger on for a long time, calling for medical supervision and care. Here's a list of things you need to know about PTSD.

  • Duration: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder usually lasts up to six months. Yet, there are cases where it lingers on and requires treatment for some particular types of symptoms or behavioural changes. Usually, the patient's behaviour is a result of one or more of the symptoms discussed below.
  • Re-experiencing Symptoms: These symptoms include flashbacks and life like re-imagination in the form of dreams and nightmares. In many cases, the patient may remember and re-experience the entire scene or series of events that have led to the trauma in the first place. This can be triggered by a memory or association with words, events and other such things that have to do with the memory of the traumatic episode.
  • Avoidance Symptoms: A traumatised patient may go out of his or her way to avoid things that are remotely close to the traumatic incident. They may fear a reoccurrence or a reminder of the event and may avoid addressing the trauma altogether. Patients suffering from this symptom may have created a mental block, and may not be able to remember the exact details of the event. They may also feel emotions like fear, guilt, depression and even worry, over the past incident which led to the trauma in the first place. 
  • Arousal Symptoms: Arousal or reactivity symptoms may trigger the same reactions that the person showed during the traumatic experience. These may include being on edge constantly in anticipation of a reoccurrence, or even getting startled by the slightest thing since the mind is already occupied with thoughts of the event, constantly. Anger and emotional outbursts may also be caused due to these symptoms.
  • Mood Symptoms: Mood swings are the most common outcome of these symptoms. The patient may experience a complete lack of enthusiasm and drive to indulge in activities like hobbies and socialising. Also, the patient may end up harbouring feelings of negativity towards family, friends and strangers, besides going through phases of guilt and self blame for the occurrence of the traumatic event.

PTSD can be a debilitating disorder in the emotional sense, and should be treated by a psychiatrist in case it lingers on for more than six months.

Homeopathy - How It Can Help You Improve Your Memory?

Homeopathy - How It Can Help You Improve Your Memory?

Memory loss is something that almost everyone experiences at some point in their life. The trouble starts when some experience it continuously and lose the logic of remembering simple things. Memory loss is not always attributed to age. There can be multiple factors behind it and the conventional medications available to treat them or improve them are not effective in the long run. One can even say that there is no foolproof method of eradicating memory loss that is where homeopathy differs drastically. Most of the treatment options concentrate on the symptoms while homeopathy treats the problem from the root. Come, let us take a look at the actual symptoms of memory loss and how homeopathy can fight it out.

Homeopathy for memory loss:

  • Memory loss is not exactly a disease, but a condition that occurs as a result of many medical contingencies. Some of them can include small strokes in the brain, diabetes, high blood pressure and nutritional deficiencies. Certain medications are also known to be the reason behind memory loss and even alcohol addiction and depression can aid the same.
  • Conventional drugs treat memory loss as a symptom, and they can be effective only till the medications are taken. They can also cause other side effects that can be harmful in the long run.
  • Homeopathy differs in this, and it works on the core principle of putting the patient first before the disease. It focuses on the condition and the factors that are affecting the memory loss. The homeopathic physician understands the patient first and discusses in detail about his lifestyle and habits of the person. Once this is established, a detailed treatment plan can be charted out by the physician.
  • Homeopathy aims to strengthen the immune system and conditions the vitality first. As a result, the human body does not get susceptible to the everyday monotonous activities and becomes attentive. Different medications are used for treating different symptoms. For example, patients who experience sudden forgetfulness are treated with a different set of drugs than the patients who lack in remembering past events.
  • Stress related patients are addressed in a different way, and other methods handle patients with a cloudy judgment related problems. On the whole, homeopathy does not believe in single medications or treatment for all. Based only on the symptoms, different homeopathy medicines are imparted.

Homeopathy is safe:
Of all the important functionalities of homeopathy, the biggest is undoubtedly the one that it does not cause any side effects and is very effective. Visible improvement in the memory can be felt within few weeks, and in the long run, patients are completely capable of dismissing the memory loss problems. Homeopathy also restricts the condition and prevents the memory loss problems from reoccurring as most of the causes are eradicated at the root. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If you depend on medicine it may continue throughout the years. It is not good depend on medicine. Sleeping pills get drowsiness, head weight, laziness, may happen. Our natural sleep is best to recovery from ourselves. If you stress. Then overcome from the stress take further remedial measures from the stress. Relax yourself, yoga, meditation will helps to you.

The main problem is fear and the stress it causes. Dreaming during the day is sometimes an escape from facing the reality. If the fear is too much you will need to meet with a counselor and deal with the fear. Once you calm down you can study better and will remember what you studied also well. One way to reduce stress in an emergency is to puff up your cheek with air pressure and hold it for about ten counts. The back pressure it creates presses the back of your throat where the vagus nerve is present. Because of this pressure it will immediately slow down your heart rate and calm you down since the vagus nerve is directly connected to the heart. If the stress comes back then repeat it until it gives up. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. 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 night’s sleep, 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling 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. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Psychologist,
People will always have their opinion about you which will keep changing. So will your self esteem depend on their definition of you or your definition of what is good about you. Focus on what you are good at and create a definition which shows you in positive light. Do you like yourself at all? if you respect yourself, your husband will respect you. So what if you are dependant on him for money. He depends on you for running the house and taking care of his kids. Feel proud of yourself that you are pitching towards the responsibilities of marriage and doing your bit. And when he says that you are not good enough, then have these things ready to tell him. If you have the time, start earning something small to support yourself. Work gives money, respect, prestige and many connections with outside world. It helps to get noticed and appreciated by people who really mean it. Don' t depend on your husband to appreciate you. One day he will, when he sees the old you again. Click on private chat to consult me for counselling for relationship issues and low self esteem.
