Don’t ignore General Anxiety Disorder

Treatment For General Anxiety Disorder-7Tell me, how often do you see a doctor for treating your restlessness, fatigue or because you are not able to concentrate properly on your work in the office? Funny question, isn’t it? ‘May be I did not have proper sleep for sometime that’s why I am not able to focus on my work. Or, possibility it could be the burden of office work and lack of proper rest that’s causing fatigue…,” and you try to reason it out with yourself and in your own way never knowing you are just on the brink of a mental disorder that may take a heavy toll on your health, if not attended to immediately.

Notice symptoms

That is exactly why it’s so important to consult a doctor in case you experience the above mentioned symptoms, though they seem quite innocuous. At the most, you pop a vitamin pill that you are so often used to taking, not knowing if it is at all useful in addressing the core problem that has been bothering you and affecting your efficiency and more significantly your happiness and peace of mind.

Recognize the problem

Restlessness, fatigue, lack of concentration, getting easily irritated, muscle tension, uncontrollable worries, sleep problems, etc. are some of the early symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder or GAD, a commonly occurring mental disorder among a large section of population in the United States as well as in India. Not recognizing GAD as a problem and treating it as a routine health issue and resorting to self-medication may have far reaching health and financial consequences.

Prevailing taboos

Because of prevailing taboos about the mental illness, very few people acknowledge the problem and come forward for treatment. And, that actually makes matter worse and treatment difficult and a long drawn process. That’s what makes GAD so pervasive and a serious mental health issue across the globe today.

Medication & Therapies help

Through its long experience in effectively dealing with and curing a large number of persons with mental health problems, Cadabam’s Hospitals- one the Bengaluru’s reliable mental healthcare and rehabilitation institutions- has developed tailor-made methods for treating GAD. The common symptoms of GAD can be treated through medication and therapies or both depending on the gravity of the problem. 

Holistic treatment

Cadabam’s has developed a comprehensive approach to treating various symptoms of GAD through a combination of modern treatment processes, using state of the art equipment, such as Feedback, r TMS and psychotherapy effective in treating depression, a common symptom associated with untreated GAD.

Individual data

Most mental illnesses involve the mind, body and the physical environment around. The correlation between these factors has been studied, and devices developed to help get historic data on an individual’s response to these combined factors. This data is then used to build predictive mechanisms to forecast mood swings, etc.

Understanding patient

At Cadabam’s Hospitals, biofeedback therapy involves the assessment of bodily activities such as heart rate, blood pressure, temperature and other vital information to understand and know more about the patient’s psychological behavior. It helps increase awareness about bodily processes through the use of sophisticated instruments and monitoring procedures to identify and correlate voluntary and involuntary physiological responses.

Root of the problem

A patient undergoing biofeedback therapy will be able to better understand the dynamics of his behavior during a stressful or mood-altering situation. On ascertaining the reasons for the specific behavior, treatment is then strategically applied (i.e. focused deep breathing; affirmations; altering thoughts, beliefs, and memories) and response measured using the same mechanism. Cadabam’s has biofeedback solutions to prevent of relapse in illnesses such as bi-polar affective disorder, addiction, GAD etc.

Feel happy

When one is stressed or hyperactive one needs relaxation. When in depression a feeling of wellbeing will do a lot of good. rTMS or repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Wave System is a wonderful way of making you feel happy and mentally healthy. rTMS device sends magnetic waves to the brain to induce a sense of wellbeing by increasing blood circulation and oxygen supply to the brain. This improves concentration, reduces stress and brings about a sense of balance and helps among other mental illnesses the symptoms of GAD. At Cadabam’s Hospitals, patients with stress, depression, anxiety and some adult psychiatric problems have recovered well through this treatment.

Psychotherapy good!

Psychotherapy is an effective way of treating people with mental disorders including GAD. It helps patients understand their illness and find a proper remedy for it. It teaches them various strategies and equips them with tools to deal with stress and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. Psychotherapy helps patients manage their symptoms better and function at their best in their day to day lives. Sometimes psychotherapy alone can provide the best possible solution to a large number of mental illnesses, depending on the nature and severity of the illness. Normally, psychotherapy is combined with medications for an effective cure. Therapists work in tandem with the family members of patients to device an appropriate treatment plan.

Need based therapy

There are various types of psychotherapy, many of them scientifically tested more than others. Some people may have a treatment plan that includes only one type of psychotherapy. Others receive treatment that includes elements of several different types of psychotherapies. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives is decided by his or her mental healthcare needs.

Furnish facts honestly

The relationship between a therapist and a client is an extremely important one and should not be taken lightly. The therapist is the one with whom a person needs to be honest, share one’s darkest secrets, fears, and dreams. On the other hand a person’s therapist needs to be honest, educate the person on issues related to mental health and the person’s current struggles.

Therapies from experts

At Cadabam’s Hospitals therapists ensure that you always feel comfortable and at home. The main therapies being offered at the hospital include: cognitive, behavioral, family, and dynamic. Therapy and medication are often used together for maximum benefit of patients. There are some disorders where medications are used continuously such as with schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder etc.

Long term cure

However, medication gives only temporary reprieve to patients suffering from anxiety and depression. Therapies help in giving long term relief and ensure that persons with mental illnesses such as GAD are able to lead a normal and healthy life for a long time to come. Cadabam’s Hospitals have trained and experienced professional therapists and clinical psychologists on whom patients can bank on for advice and formulation of the best possible treatment plan for a longterm cure.
