The lesser known Social Anxiety

What happens in anxiety?

Many people with anxiety experience symptoms of more than one type of anxiety condition, and may experience depression as well. It’s important to seek support early if you’re experiencing anxiety. Your symptoms may not go away on their own and if left untreated, they can start to take over your life.

Social anxiety

Socially anxious individuals cannot seem to relax and enjoy themselves while they are in public. These people think that other people are trying to evaluate them in some sort of way, being critical in what they do or say.

However, for people with social phobia performing in front of others and social situations can lead to intense anxiety. For example, the prospect of eating in front of others at a restaurant can be daunting for some people with social phobia.

Social phobia may occur in the lead up to or during in:

  • performance situations (such as have to give a speech or being watched while doing something at work)
  • situations involving social interaction (such as having a meal with friends, or making small talk).

Social phobia can also be specific; where people fear a specific situation or a few situations related to a specific fear (such as being assertive at work or with their friends).

social phobia

How common is social phobia in our country?

Research suggests that almost 11 per cent of the Indian population experiences social phobia during their lifetime, with just under 5  per cent experiencing social phobia in any 12-month period. More women than men appear to develop the disorder. The condition often starts in childhood or adolescence.

Treating social anxiety

Social phobia is treatable and seeking professional support is the first step to recovery. There are two main types of effective treatments for social phobia; psychological treatments will generally be the first line of treatment. In some severe cases, taking healthy food and changing lifestyle can also be effective.

Fat loss vs Weight loss

Health is the greatest gift and contentment is the greatest Wealth. Being obese comes with its own set of problems. It brings so many related health issues and has a major impact on lowering our confidence.

Trying to be slim and healthy can be a long and tough journey which requires a lot of effort, but shouldn’t we make sure we’re putting this effort in the right direction?

weight loss vs fat loss

There is a vast difference between fat loss and weight loss but not many of us know this. A few simple differences and it’s effects on our body are :

  • Body : Weight loss is a reduction in weight which includes fat, weight and water whereas fat loss focuses on losing only the fat content in the body.

  • Health : Weight loss can make our body weak as a we lose larger part of the important components whereas fat loss helps us burn the fat which results in increased stamina and energy.

  • Food : Reduction in diet and exercising can help us lose weight but fat loss requires a proper, balanced diet with regular exercising.

When we merely try to lose weight, we tend to reduce our food intake. This can harm our body, lead to weakness and sickness as our immunity system loses strength.

Fat loss mainly focuses on losing the unnecessary and excess fat from your body resulting in strengthening the muscles with regular exercising.

We must make sure we are benefiting from the efforts and hard work we put in towards making our body and health better by knowing and doing the exercises and diet in the right way.

The Ancient Cure : Acupuncture

What Is Acupuncture?

Contrary to popular Western belief, acupuncture is not just a system for inserting very fine needles into specific body locations to alleviate pain. So, what is acupuncture, then?

From its inception in China more than 2,500 years ago. It has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as to improve general health.

The traditional explanation for acupuncture’s effectiveness is that it modifies the flow of energy (known as qi or chi) throughout the body. In fact, much research in the West has focused on this pain-relieving effect, rather than acupuncture’s traditional role of balancing energy to address a wide range of disorders, and the more subtle mechanisms that may be responsible for its overall benefits to health.

How do we do acupuncture???

Understand the anatomy and physiology of the “acupuncture points,” the definition and characterization of these points remains controversial. Even more elusive is the scientific basis of some of the key traditional. Eastern medical concepts such as the circulation of Qi the meridian system. which are difficult to reconcile with contemporary biomedical information. But continue to play an important role in the evaluation of patients and the formulation of treatment in acupuncture.

We have lot of clients who comes here specifically for sessions. We treated patients with migraine, asthma,  back pain, neck pain, gastric ailments, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.

There will b a course of treatment and it differs from person to person, condition and severity of cases. In certain conditions, we use cupping method(dry) and electro acupuncture. This we decide after seeing and studying the case and condition.

The mechanism Is same only and the aim is to increase blood circulation, to stimulate the nerve endings of  the target tissue. There will be occasional dull ache at the point that then subsides.

Time duration of acupuncture is 5 to 30 min.

Carrot spinach juice

Carrot spinach juice

This healthy spinach carrot juice recipe will not only give you a TON of natural energy, but has a hefty dose of fiber!  The pineapple is a nice sweetener and flavor, make sure to keep the nutritious core in it, as your Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender will easily pulverize it and make it digestible for you.  You can substitute apple for the pineapple if necessary, but make sure to core it first, since apple seeds aren’t nutritious like the core of the pineapple! You can use regular water or we like coconut water for added hydration, electrolytes, and potassium. Because carrots juice is so fibrous compared to other juices we make and to make it more of a thin juice consistency, you will notice in the recipe instructions for Blendtec we use the SOUP button, which runs a full 40 seconds longer than the WHOLE JUICE button, and for Vitamix, we run it a full 1.5 minutes on High before manually stopping. However be sure to add lots of ice so it doesn’t get hot and kill the live enzymes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Carrot peeled and chopped.
  • 1 Bunch of spinach (1 cup).

Method:

Clean the spinach carrot cut into pieces add carrot, spinach and ½ cup water into the mixer grinder or blender blend it discard the  pulp and serve. Drink it immediately to get maximum nutritional benefit.

Benefits:

  • Creation of RBC.
  • Relief from Rheumatoid Arthritis.
  • Prevent bleeding gums.
  • Rich in Antioxidants.
  • Prevents formation of cancerous cells.
  • Treats vision problems.
