Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?

When I think about fear, I used to think about a power that keeps me alive. And you can witness its very different from the way normally people think about fear, that it’s the bad thing that I should do everything to avoid. We turned fear into an enemy. And we can sing songs about the most important thing is to have no fear and you have those slogans “No Fear!” And as a man you learn to overcome fear and be brave and we can see that there is a lot of misunderstanding about what is fear and what should we do with it. The fact is that we’ll always be afraid. Every time something changes in the situation, which means, all the time, we are afraid, we don’t know what will happen next. And this kind of fear keeps us attentive, alive, on our toes and ready to adopt change, run away or whatever is necessary. Or think, okay?

Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?
Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?

To deal with the new situation. So fear allows us to really fit to the physical reality that is around us and not just to what is in our minds. So in a way, it’s a beneficial power. It comes to bring us a lot of energy and a lot of ability to concentrate, to think to make quick decisions. But we get trained from very young that fear is a bad thing. When we were small and we were afraid, it frightened out parents. And since they also didn’t want fear they tried to make us unafraid that they will not have to be afraid. Now this has been going on for many, many generations that every sign of fear is something that says we have to calm it down, push it down, pretend it’s not there, try to find solutions and you can see that we created a defense against fear that somehow pushes it away from us, it doesn’t allow us to really even experience what it is.

When teaching people how to allow fear and how to agree to be afraid, most of the time they are amazed at how wonderful it feels. In their mind it appears as a horrible kind of experience, as something terrible that they shouldn’t agree to, that it will be really bad, but when it happens, actually the experience is very different. For example, to stand in front of people and talk for those who are not professional, and many times even for professionals, is embarrassing.

We also look at the two types of fear we can meet in life. One is fresh fear. It’s happening now. The house is falling, if we don’t move now, very fast, we’re dead. So this kind of fear is immediate. You manage to escape, you run outside, you look at the house collapsing and your body starts to shake after, because what happens now? The fresh fear became old fear. It’s now a memory. It’s not happening anymore when you’re outside watching the house falling down. But what you have now is old fear that if you didn’t know how to allow fresh fear in your body and now it’s being stuck in your body and it gives you the experience of it’s happening now even if it’s not happening now. So you can see the misunderstand how to deal with fresh fear and we try to turn it into old fear. Old fear is old in the sense that it happened in the past, in history, not now. Our bodies respond to fresh fear now. We get filled up with energy, and unless we are trained to block fear, repress fear and freeze as a reaction to fear, then this energy makes us move. If we are too terrified of fear and we freeze then we are victims of the fear itself and instead of being beneficial it’s actually the fear that will kill us and not something else. So when we look at fresh fear and old fear, we can see another thing is that fresh fear, if it’s very long, we cannot be able to maintain it, we are unable to experience long fresh fear.

Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?

When the new fear makes you to think or talk about it for more than three days, your ability to allow fear would be diminished greatly. You’d be exhausted and you will try to turn it into old fear in a way that it would not touch you anymore. It’s because our bodies are not designed for long fear. If you think of wild animals that we once were, If the lion came at us we either died and then no more fear or we managed to escape and if we survived, then this fear was a blessing. But imagine yourself running away from the lion for three days, constantly there is no tree high enough, there is no rock big enough and you’re running and running and the lion runs and runs

We are unable to actually deal with something like that and you can see that the traumas that leave the strongest mark on us are those either those that devastated us in a moment. If we got into an accident and we have now 20 broken bones and five surgeries and it was clear that in one moment it all happened, or long periods of time in which we were terrified, like being abused in childhood or being in a prison where we were tortured for long periods of time or we had to suffer all kinds of depravation under long circumstances, then our ability to deal with fresh fear is diminished greatly, we cannot maintain it for too long.

Pain and fear wake up the body’s immunity, strength, resistance, etc. and those kinds of power are what keep us in well-being and in health. You take away pain and fear and we don’t really have anything to fight for.

Causes for Abortion during Pregnancy – Part I

If being childless is a pain, losing by abortion is even more painful. The major reasons for this kind of incidents are tension and stress cannot be handled. Tension releases stress hormones, causing abortions. 10% – 20% of abortions happen spontaneously. Induced abortions are of 10%, rate of abortions reduces from 1st to 3rd trimesters.

To produce a healthy baby, it requires healthy uterus and a good embryo. Also other health concerns of mother should be addressed too.  If uterus and embryo are healthy enough, conceiving becomes easy. There are many instances regarding this kind of issue. No treatment or medication will come to rescue without having a healthy uterus and a good embryo. So the main concern here is to get mother’s health both physical and mental ready for conceiving. And indeed self-confident plays a pivotal role here.

During 2nd trimester mostly in 5th and 6th months, we find cases with uterus problems. And in the next level we face issues with blood circulation to the baby, high Bp and diabetes of the mother and baby in breach position happens. Possibility to conceive a healthy baby after an abortion is 90%. As the no of miscarriages increase, rate of conceiving reduces by 5% each time. It slides down to 50% after 4 or more abortions. For a woman after undergoing so many miscarriages, stress and tension are serious concerns. So stress needs to be addressed at the earliest as possible.

The another cause of abortion in 1st trimester is defective chromosomes, the major factor effecting the chromosomal abnormalities is environmental pollution, though we see 2-5% of defect in parental chromosomes. 10-15% due to hormonal imbalances. Immunological disorders and infections sharing each 5-10%. Air pollutants like carbon monoxide, benzene, ozone etc., effect too. Chemical solvents like mosquito repellents, paints, hair dyes, perfumes, plastic bottles, nail polish removers etc., effect the abortions in 1st trimester.

It is highly advised to stop habits like smoking and consuming alcohol and also to put a check on the coffee consumption too is necessary. Men with habit of consuming 3 or more cups of coffee a day face problems like low sperm count and abnormalities in formation of embryo. Low thyroid levels also cause abortion risks. It effects both mother and baby. It is advised to get thyroid test done for pregnant women. As it effects babies too. Mothers with anemia, high Bp levels during 7-8th month pregnancy might result in low weight of baby, prematured delivery or abortions and other physical disabilities. Next, high levels of prolactin hormone might increase the chances of abortions. Both thyroid and hormones decrease the progesterone levels, causing abortions.

PCOD in women causes irregular periods due to high insulin levels in the body. It causes implantation problem. Progesterone at correct levels can move the embryo through tubes. It’s vital that Fallopian tubes are free to move after formation of egg. It brings the eggs to uterus. Lining layer of uterus should be in good condition. Consider this lining layer as the bed for the baby in the uterus. It’s important for the embryo to get attached to this layer. Progesterone plays a vital role in fetus implantation. There are 2 reasons for problem in foetal implantation to the uterus. 2/3rd of the problem is due to endometrium i.e., uterus and 1/3rd due to defect in fetus. We have to study the formation of egg and lining layer during every scan. It is always suggested to consume adequate water for better results during follicular study. Avoid coffee and tea, instead take green tea, it’s good in antioxidants. Taking more water influences the quality and functionality of eggs.

Pregnancy Tips

If we observe keenly we can find the reasons as follows:

First, a bulk or enough stool should be formed and certain level of water is required too. In the absence of water, stool becomes hard and dry, it’s progress becomes difficult. Bowel movements should be god too. It depends upon mobility of the body. People with sedentary lifestyle like no minimal walking or physical exercise face this problem. Lack of enough body movement causes it too.

Next is psychological factor. Our beliefs and emotions too play a pivotal role here. Some people face difficulty in passing stool at any place other than their own bathrooms. They won’t feel free to do it. Also people under depression or undergoing tremendous stress face this problem, reason is reduced neuro transmitter levels making the bowel motility slower, resulting in constipation. Such people usually take comfort foods. With high carbohydrates, Maida and other kinds of fast foods. It causes clogging of food, sticking it to the intestines. It is always better to avoid such kind of foods.

In order to get enough bulk formation, we should take more fiber in our food. When added with water, it easily swells up and forms into a bulk. At least 25-30 grams of fiber should be consumed per day in our diet. We get good amount of fiber in pulses, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, dry fruits, seeds, etc. We need to increase its quantity in our diet gradually, else will have to deal with gas formation. All leafy vegetables, pulses, small grains, certain veggies have good fiver in them. Fruits are good sources of fiber too. Specially, banana, orange and guava are good for it.

Dry fruits like raisins, figs and dates are highly recommended. Flax seeds are a good source of fiber too. When tried and powdered, it can be consumed by mixing a table spoon of it with water or butter milk. Or by adding the powder to curries, or directly with the rice. Adequate water should be consumed after eating this.

These are the changes we need to make in our diet to get rid of Constipation. Some more vital ingredients for good fiber in our diet are coriander and cumin seeds.

Next comes consumption of adequate Water. During Pregnancy, some women vomit a lot, it effects their water intake badly. It leads to constipation. Women in such conditions suffer with both vomiting and constipation. Some might get affected due to iron tablets and other medication using during pregnancy. It is suggested to consume at least 8 glasses or 2 litres of water regularly. Also water should be consumed on an empty stomach for better results. In normal conditions other than pregnancy, people can take 2 litres of water at a time.

Pregnancy Tips

But pregnant women can’t consume so much at a time, so ask them to drink a glass of warm water with a dash of lemon in it or take hot raagi malt. Even consuming hot coffee helps in free passage of stool. Few may have a habbit of drinking a glass of warm water with ghee in it. These are the consumable liquids for constipation.

Movement of body by regular exercises like Kegel exercise or walking helps too. Preparing ourselves mentally to helps to get rid of this problem. Some people give us hope and quit trying to cure constipation. They say, it’s chronic and cannot be cured with any kind of medication or exercising and following god diet. One should be determined to get it cured. Also should believe that our body’s nature can be changed gradually to overcome constipation, along with putting right efforts.

One should completely avoid comfort foods and increase intake of fiber rich foods. Try and fix a particular time to pass motion, generally during mornings. Try not to be stressful, give it sometime to process. Never feel distressed if it takes time, show some patience, spend some time for it and never lose hope. In such conditions, drink some water and try doing Kegel exercise to loosen the bulk.

When the mentioned tips are followed regularly, constipation can be easily addressed. If constipation is not resolved with in time, it might lead to severe health concerns. Because, when motion is not regularly passed out, it gets accumulated and starts releasing toxins or bad bacteria. It forms as a thin layer in the intestines. It results in lower absorption of necessary and vital vitamins and nutrients via intestines. And also it causes lower immunity levels and reduces resistance power to fight infections and diseases.
