*** Sztuczna inteligencja rewolucjonizuje obrazowanie medyczne. D bizneswiadomosci UniMarter
*** Sztuczna inteligencja rewolucjonizuje obrazowanie medyczne. Dzięki polskim naukowcom ocena urazu ścięgna Achillesa będzie bardzo dokładna i szybko dostępna ***

Sztuczna inteligencja może zrewolucjonizować przemysł obrazowania medycznego. Zdiagnozuje choroby oczu z niemal 100 proc. dokładnością, rozpozna raka w początkowym stadium, poprawi diagnostykę serca. Zaawansowana technika obliczeniowa przyspiesza i poprawia jakość obrazowania biomedycznego. Polscy naukowcy opracowali zaś metodę oceny badań obrazowych rezonansu magnetycznego w oparciu o głębokie sieci neuronowe. Umożliwia w pełni automatyczną ocenę obrazów, a dokładność oceny stopnia uszkodzenia lub wygojenia ścięgna Achillesa jest porównywalna z ekspertami radiologii ortopedycznej.

– Nasz projekt polega na tym, żeby zautomatyzować pracę radiologa, a przynajmniej bardzo ją usprawnić i przyśpieszyć. Chodzi o diagnostykę uszkodzeń ścięgna Achillesa, które są jednymi z najczęstszych urazów ortopedycznych, szczególnie w sporcie i medycynie sportowej. Polega na stworzeniu rozwiązania opartego na sztucznej inteligencji, na sieciach neuronowych, które pozwala na podstawie obrazów rezonansu magnetycznego w sposób automatyczny postawić diagnozę odnośnie stopnia uszkodzenia lub też stopnia wygojenia ścięgna Achillesa – tłumaczy w rozmowie z agencją Newseria Innowacje Bartosz Borucki, kierownik Zespołu Sztucznej Inteligencji i Analizy Obrazowej w Diagnostyce Medycznej na UW.

Urazy ścięgna Achillesa należą do najczęstszych urazów ortopedycznych. Ocena schorzeń, zwłaszcza w medycynie sportowej, jest niezwykle istotna. Dzięki start-upowi Smarter Diagnostics, założonemu przez naukowców Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, ocena badań obrazowych rezonansu magnetycznego w oparciu o głębokie sieci neuronowe pozwala dokładnie ocenić obraz i ustalić stan ścięgna Achillesa. Metoda automatycznej oceny ścięgna Achillesa to jeden z efektów projektu „START: Nowatorskie metody inżynierii tkankowej wspomagające gojenie i regenerację ścięgien i więzadeł”. Algorytm otrzymuje obrazy z MRI i generuje raport z ocenianymi parametrami.

– Na tym rozwiązaniu najbardziej mogą skorzystać pacjenci. Dostaną lepszą diagnostykę, lepsze możliwości wczesnego wykrycia problemów, ale też później monitorowania procesu leczenia, co pozwoli na sprawniejszą rehabilitację, dostosowanie procesu leczenia do konkretnego pacjenta. A dzięki temu, szczególnie w medycynie sportowej, umożliwi to szybszy powrót do zdrowia. Skorzystają też na tym sami radiolodzy – ocenia Bartosz Borucki.

Ocena bazująca na obrazowaniu medycznym zajmuje dużo czasu, jest kosztowna, a przy tym w dużej mierze zależy od lekarza i jego doświadczenia. Dodatkowo sprawia, że radiolodzy są obciążeni pracą. Ocena w oparciu o sztuczną inteligencję pozwala oszczędzić czas lekarzy, a przy tym zwiększa skuteczność oceny.

– Wyniki rezonansu już dzisiaj można oceniać automatycznie, w przyszłości na pewno będzie tego jeszcze więcej. Szczególnie sztuczna inteligencja i konwolucyjne sieci neuronowe powodują tę rewolucję. Wszystko zależy od danych, ich dostępności, od tego, jak szybko jesteśmy w stanie dojść od rozwiązania, które powstaje w środowisku naukowym, do rozwiązania, które jest już certyfikowanym produktem – tłumaczy ekspert.

Sztuczna inteligencja rewolucjonizuje przemysł obrazowania medycznego, udostępnia informacje o chorobach i urazach, które mogą być trudne do wykrycia bez dodatkowej technologii. Przykładem może być technologia SI od DeepMind należącego do Google, która odczytuje skany optycznej koherentnej tomografii (OCT) siatkówki w 3D i diagnozuje 50 różnych stanów okulistycznych z niemal 100 proc. skutecznością.

iCAD opracował z kolei oparte na sztucznej inteligencji rozwiązanie do cyfrowej tomosyntezy piersi, które ogląda każdą warstwę tkanki, a tym samym pozwala wykryć raka w bardzo wczesnym stadium. Z kolei technologia natychmiastowej segmentacji Siemensa i Intela umożliwia specjalistom bezpieczne oglądanie większej liczby wyników rezonansu magnetycznego serca.

– Rozwiązania automatyzujące, szczególnie takie, które bardzo przyśpieszają procesy, są dużo tańsze. Pozwalają zmniejszyć czas wykorzystania urządzeń obrazujących, w naszym przypadku rezonansu magnetycznego, pozwalają zmniejszyć wymogi co do czasu zaangażowania, którego radiolog ma bardzo mało – mówi ekspert. – Już dzisiaj wiemy, że wiele z tych rozwiązań ma lepszą skuteczność niż lekarz, a tak naprawdę najwyższą skuteczność ma tandem lekarz plus sztuczna inteligencja – przekonuje Bartosz Borucki.

Według analityków Research and Markets rynek sztucznej inteligencji w opiece zdrowotnej osiągnie do 2025 r. wartość 27,6 mld dol. W najbliższych latach będzie się rozwijać w tempie 43,5 proc. średniorocznie.

*** Tylko 2% Polaków bardzo dobrze ocenia służbę zdrowia. Wzg bizneswiadomosci UniMarter
*** Tylko 2% Polaków bardzo dobrze ocenia służbę zdrowia. Względnie zadowolony jest prawie co piąty ***

Tyko jeden na pięciu Polaków pozytywnie ocenia polską służbę zdrowia. Natomiast bardzo dobrą opinię na jej temat ma raptem 2 proc. Z drugiej strony pacjenci dość pozytywnie oceniają własne doświadczenia w korzystaniu z usług zdrowotnych. Dla przykładu, swoją ostatnią wizytę w POZ na plus zaliczyło 37 proc. Polaków. Niechlubnym wyjątkiem są szpitale, większość pacjentów źle ocenia warunki i jakość świadczonej przez nie opieki – wynika z nowego raportu „Doświadczenia pacjenta w Polsce” opracowanego przez Siemens Healthineers.

– Z naszego raportu „Doświadczenia pacjenta w Polsce” wynika, że są obszary służby zdrowia oceniane lepiej i te oceniane gorzej. Do tych pierwszych należy podstawowa opieka zdrowotna, nieco gorzej wygląda to w ambulatoryjnej opiece specjalistycznej. Niestety, najgorzej są oceniane szpitale – aż 40 proc. pacjentów, którzy wychodzą ze szpitala, jest niezadowolonych z opieki. To i tak dużo lepsze wyniki w porównaniu z oceną systemu opieki zdrowotnej jako całości. Tam widzimy, że ta skłonność do krytyki jest bardzo silna, bo odzwierciedla cały bagaż negatywnych doświadczeń pacjentów – mówi Piotr Kuskowski z Siemens Healthineers.

Jak podkreśla, w ostatniej dekadzie patient experience stało się bardzo ważnym elementem systemów opieki zdrowotnej na dojrzałych rynkach, takich jak Stany Zjednoczone, Wielka Brytania czy kraje skandynawskie. W krajach wysoko rozwiniętych doświadczenia pacjenta są rzeczywiście jednym z filarów systemu opieki zdrowotnej.

– Są wytyczne, które mówią, jak należy dbać o doświadczenia pacjenta. Z tym czynnikiem często jest też powiązany system refundacyjny. Natomiast w Polsce dyskurs wokół opieki zdrowotnej jest skoncentrowany na kwestiach dostępu, finansowania, organizacji i efektywności klinicznej, ale wydaje się, że to jest właściwy moment, żeby dołożyć nowy komponent, czyli właśnie doświadczenia pacjenta, perspektywę bardzo ludzką. Ważne, żeby nie mówić tylko o kwestiach finansów czy organizacji, lecz także o tym, co odczuwa oraz dostrzega pacjent i jego opiekun – mówi Piotr Kuskowski.

– Kwestia reputacji służby zdrowia rzeczywiście jest zaniedbana, ale problemów w systemie jest tak wiele, że po prostu nie ma na nie czasu. Rządzący skupiają się na gaszeniu pożarów i na rozwiązywaniu bieżących problemów. Nie ma takiego podejścia szerszego, systemowego. Jako fundacja również widzimy, że pacjenci mają duże zaufanie do lekarzy jako takich, ale nie mają zaufania do systemu i ta ich opinia o systemie jest bardzo zła – dodaje Magdalena Kołodziej, członek zarządu Fundacji My Pacjenci.

Raport „Doświadczenia pacjenta w Polsce” to pierwsza próba oceny polskiego systemu ochrony zdrowia z perspektywy doświadczeń pacjentów. O ocenę usług zdrowotnych zapytano blisko 2 tys. Polaków, na podstawie badań ilościowych i jakościowych autorzy wskazali, co – zdaniem pacjentów – zasługuje na pochwałę, a co boli ich najbardziej.

Wyniki pokazują, że jedynie 18 proc. badanych pozytywnie ocenia opiekę zdrowotną w Polsce, w tym tylko 2 proc. – bardzo pozytywnie. Natomiast aż 39 proc. uważa, że polska opieka zdrowotna jest zła lub bardzo zła.

Z drugiej strony Polacy dość pozytywnie oceniają własne doświadczenia w korzystaniu z usług zdrowotnych. Ostatnia wizyta lub pobyt w placówce ochrony zdrowia przebiegły w pełni satysfakcjonująco dla 37 proc. pacjentów Podstawowej Opieki Zdrowotnej (POZ), 32 proc. Ambulatoryjnej Opieki Specjalistycznej (AOS). Na drugim biegunie są szpitale, z których opieki zadowolonych było 26 proc.

– Pozytywne są przede wszystkim doświadczenia związane z kwestiami interpersonalnymi, czyli relacjami miedzy pacjentem i opiekunem a personelem medycznym. Tutaj jest wiele dobrych doświadczeń związanych m.in. z edukacją zdrowotną, przygotowaniem pacjenta do kolejnych kroków w leczeniu, komunikacją i możliwością partnerskiego dialogu. Stosunkowo dobrze oceniamy też zarządzaniem bólem – czyli to, że personel jest wyczulony na te kwestie i czy coś z tym robi. Po drugiej stronie mamy niestety te doświadczenia złe, negatywne. Są to przede wszystkim kwestie związane z komfortem placówek, z jakością wyżywienia w szpitalu, warunkami snu, ale i dużo takich, które budzą niepokój: m.in. komunikacja ryzyk związanych z procedurami medycznymi albo przyjmowaniem leków, które są dla pacjentów niezrozumiałe – mówi Piotr Kuskowski.

Autor raportu podkreśla, że na minus pacjenci zaliczają też kwestie empatii, wyczulenia na stan emocjonalny pacjenta lub opiekuna oraz efektywnego wsparcia w obszarze emocjonalnym.

– Tego niestety w polskiej służbie zdrowia bardzo brakuje i pacjenci to dostrzegają – mówi Piotr Kuskowski.

– Negatywną opinię pacjenci wiążą szczególnie ze sprawami strukturalnymi i organizacyjnymi w ochronie zdrowia. Mają duże zastrzeżenia na przykład do posiłków oraz możliwości komfortowego snu i wypoczynku w szpitalach, ale źle oceniają też takie kwestie jak procedury administracyjne. Słowem, ich złe doświadczenia są związane głównie ze strukturą i organizacją. Ale zaobserwowaliśmy, że pacjenci są gotowi ostrzej oceniać system jako całość, natomiast jeśli zapytać o ich prywatne, osobiste, partykularne doświadczenia to te oceny są trochę lepsze – dodaje prof. Dorota Cianciara, konsultantka naukowa raportu, ekspert Centrum Medycznego Kształcenia Podyplomowego.

*** Dieta powinna być bogata w superfoods. Można je dodawać w bizneswiadomosci UniMarter
*** Dieta powinna być bogata w superfoods. Można je dodawać w niewielkich ilościach nawet do lodów czy schabowego ***

Dietetyk kliniczny Hanna Stolińska-Fiedorowicz tłumaczy, że superfoods to takie produkty, które w małej objętości zawierają dużo konkretnych witamin, składników mineralnych i dobrych tłuszczy, które mogą uzupełnić naszą standardową dietę. I choć trudno diametralnie zmienić swój sposób odżywiania i całkowicie wyeliminować z jadłospisu wszystkie niezdrowe potrawy czy produkty, to warto przynajmniej uzupełnić je o składniki superfoods.

– Superfoods to produkty, które w małej objętości zawierają dużo danego składnika odżywczego, tzn. albo witamin, albo białka, albo tłuszczu, albo węglowodanów i mają większy wpływ na nasze zdrowie niż zwykłe produkty, które spożywamy na co dzień. Tych superfoodów nie jada się w dużej ilości – mówi agencji Newseria Hanna Stolińska-Fiedorowicz, dietetyk kliniczny.

Jej zdaniem warto podkreślić, że superfoods mają nie jedną, lecz kilka unikatowych cech, które sprawiają, że wypadają znacznie lepiej na tle tzw. konwencjonalnej żywności.

 – Oczywiście chciałabym, żeby cała nasza dieta była superfoods, ale jesteśmy tylko ludźmi i tego nie da się zrobić, bo lubimy lody, lubimy tego przysłowiowego schabowego. Ale jeżeli do lodów dodamy miechunkę, a do schabowego np. macę, to też już zwiększymy jakość naszego pożywienia i dbajmy w ten sposób o nasze zdrowie – mówi Hanna Stolińska-Fiedorowicz.

Pojęcie „superfoods” czy też „superżywność” jest nam już dobrze znane, ponieważ ostatnio wykorzystuje się je bardzo często do opisu różnych produktów. Najczęściej możemy spotkać się z użyciem tego sformułowania w odniesieniu do takich składników, jak np. nasiona chia, komosa ryżowa, jagody goji, żeń-szeń czy awokado.

– Każdy superfood ma swoje właściwości, np. nasiona chia mają dużo kwasów omega-3, które wpływają na układ nerwowy, na układ krążenia, na nasz metabolizm. Białko konopne nie obciąża naszego organizmu tak jak białko zwierzęce, a dodatkowo zawiera dużo wapnia i żelaza. I tak naprawdę możemy o każdym superfoodzie powiedzieć co innego, co robi dla naszego organizmu, ale na pewno je odżywia, bo chodzi o to, żeby nie tylko jeść, lecz także się odżywiać – mówi Hanna Stolińska-Fiedorowicz.

Dietetycy zachęcają do tego, by spojrzeć na nasze rodzime podwórko, gdzie niemal w zasięgu ręki można również znaleźć wiele cennych polskich superfoods.

– Oczywiście my mamy polskie superfoody, nasze np. orzechy włoskie, siemię lniane czy jarmuż, który jest najzdrowszym warzywem na świecie. Ale niestety Polacy nie lubią tych wszystkich produktów. Siemię lniane kojarzy się tylko z takim naparem na żołądek, jarmuż z czymś po prostu niesmacznym. Dla mnie superfoodem np. są orzechy włoskie, które zawierają bardzo dużo kwasów omega-3. Poza tym kasza gryczana, która zawiera bardzo dużo magnezu, żelaza i błonnika, dlatego możemy ją jeść praktycznie na co dzień – mówi Hanna Stolińska-Fiedorowicz.

*** Elektroniczne usługi medyczne rewolucjonizują służbę zdr bizneswiadomosci UniMarter
*** Elektroniczne usługi medyczne rewolucjonizują służbę zdrowia. W Polsce wystawia się już ponad 220 tysięcy e-recept dziennie ***

W Polsce można już bez wychodzenia z domu odbyć konsultację lekarską, otrzymać receptę, a nawet poprosić o jej wykupienie i wysyłkę leku. Na popularności coraz bardziej zyskują też instrumenty takie jak elektroniczna recepta czy skierowanie. Wprowadzenie cyfrowej dokumentacji medycznej pozwoli natomiast usprawnić analitykę i obsługę kontraktów z Narodowym Funduszem Zdrowia. Właśnie wystartowała nowa platforma rządowa, na której wszystkie sprawy, w tym zdrowotne, można załatwić w jednym miejscu.

– Wideokonsultacje czy też rozwiązania telemedyczne już zaczynają być implementowane do polskiego systemu ochrony zdrowia i jak najbardziej istnieje przestrzeń do ich rozwoju. Technicznie nie jest to żadna bariera, więc będziemy mieli coraz więcej takich rozwiązań – przewiduje w rozmowie z agencją informacyjną Newseria Innowacje Marcin Czech, prezes elekt Polskiego Towarzystwa Farmakoekonomicznego.

W Polsce funkcjonują już przychodnie on-line. Jedną z nich jest działająca na terenie Unii Europejskiej przychodnia Dimedic, w której można bez wychodzenia z domu odbyć konsultację lekarską i otrzymać receptę. Pacjent może wybrać również opcję wykupu recepty. Placówka udziela konsultacji głównie w sprawach związanych z antykoncepcją, otyłością czy zaburzeniami seksualnymi

– W obszarze e-zdrowia i wszystkiego, co jest związane z rozwiązaniami cyfrowymi w zdrowiu, to obecnie jesteśmy w fazie pełnej akceleracji. E-recepta, e-skierowanie, e-zwolnienie, konto pacjenta, to są wszystko elementy cyfryzacji, które wchodzą szybko do systemu ochrony zdrowia i dzięki temu gonimy państwa, które uważamy za modelowe, np. Estonię – mówi Marcin Czech.

Recepty elektroniczne można w Polsce zrealizować w każdej aptece od 1 stycznia 2019 roku. Od 1 stycznia 2020 roku wszystkie przychodnie będą miały natomiast obowiązek ich wystawiania. Według danych Centrum Systemów Informacyjnych Ochrony Zdrowia, do tej pory wystawiono w Polsce ponad 7 mln takich recept, a według najnowszych danych, dziennie jest ich już wystawianych ponad 220 tysięcy. Liczba podmiotów wystawiających e-recepty w samym tylko sierpniu wzrosła w stosunku do lipca o 46 proc. i wynosi już prawie 4 tysiące.

Kolejnym krokiem w rewolucjonizowaniu polskiej służby zdrowia ma być wprowadzenie w 2021 r. elektronicznej dokumentacji medycznej. W Internetowym Koncie Pacjenta po zalogowaniu się za pomocą Profilu Zaufanego będzie można przejrzeć nie tylko swoją dokumentację medyczną, w tym historię wizyt u lekarza w ramach NFZ od 2008 r., lecz także swoich dzieci. 

– To będzie otwarcie wrót do olbrzymich możliwości analitycznych, które tkwią w systemie. I to uzupełni dane, które są zbierane dla potrzeb refundacji czy dla potrzeb NFZ-u. W cyfryzacji będzie wiele nowych rzeczy i wiele nowych rozwiązań dla dobra profesjonalistów medycznych i pacjentów – przewiduje prezes Polskiego Towarzystwa Farmakoekonomicznego.

Wprowadzenie możliwości przeprowadzania elektronicznych konsultacji z lekarzami różnych specjalizacji pozwala walczyć z problemem kolejek. Na prywatną wizytę u urologa trzeba w Kielcach czekać nawet trzy tygodnie. Wizyta w ramach kontraktu z NFZ to już czas oczekiwania sięgający co najmniej 3,5 miesiąca. W przypadku zdecydowania się na konsultację przez kanał elektroniczny czas ten skraca się nawet do czterech dni.

Z uwagi na znaczne usprawnienie systemu ochrony zdrowia dzięki narzędziom on-line możliwe będzie też wypracowanie oszczędności finansowych, ale i poprawy jakości opieki.

– Na początku musimy się nauczyć jak z tego systemu korzystać, ale potem wszystko będzie na tzw. kliknięcie, co zaowocuje sporymi oszczędnościami. Być może wymusi to również zmiany polegające na tym, że lekarze będą bardziej się zajmować pacjentem i leczeniem, a np. szeroko zapowiadani asystenci medyczni będą bardziej obsługiwać systemy informacji. Myślę, że to jest przyszłość – mówi Marcin Czech.

W budżecie Polski na 2019 rok nakłady na służbę zdrowia sięgnęły kwoty niemal 100 mld zł, co stanowi 4,86 proc. PKB. W 2020 ma to być już 5,03 PKB, a do 2025 roku 6 proc. Właśnie wystartowała rządowa platforma gov.pl, na której wszystkie e-usługi, w tym także zdrowotne, można załatwić w jednym miejscu.

***16 Rules For teksty Fuller, More Effective And Anxiety Free Li unimarter UniMarter
***16 Rules For teksty Fuller, More Effective And Anxiety Free Life!***

Anxiety disorders over stimulate a number of bodily systems which would normally remain at a constant level. Digestion, circulation and breathing are heavily affected by anxiety and, whilst anxiety can?t harm you, efficient balancing of bodily systems is necessary for good all round health. The good news is that no matter how anxiety affects you, from mild shyness to the extreme manifestation of panic disorder, OCD and phobias, there is much that you can do right now to regain balance and peace in your body.These are my top tips to live a healthier, anxiety free life:1. FoodDiet is vital for maintaining general good health. Avoiding over spicy foods, too many carbohydrates, sugary foods and bad fats are the expected advice of dieticians world over, but in the quest for eliminating anxiety, it is vital to maintain equilibrium throughout the digestive process. Minimise sugar highs caused by sugary drinks and carbohydrates by eating smaller, more regular meals of steamed vegetables, fish, poultry and fruit. Avoid piles of potatoes, bread, biscuits and cakes, they produce fast, short lived sugar highs which can leave you feeling tired and shaky as the blood sugar level drops. The buzz word in any diet is ?balance?2. AlcoholWhether you drink every day or in larger quantities over short periods, alcohol can cause anxiety levels to fluctuate dramatically. Many people find that wine is the worst culprit and that during times of high anxiety and stress, it causes much more pronounced symptoms.Alcohol contains high levels of sugar which has obvious negative affects but also, the psychological affect of the experience of being drunk or tipsy can alter the sufferer?s perception of the world in a way which can cause higher levels of sadness, worry and other emotions. Alcohol consumption should always be minimised for maintaining general good health but in anxiety conditions and times of stress, it is advisable to abstain completely.3. SmokingSmoking can cause blood sugar fluctuations but also bodily changes caused by its stimulant affect. Smoking cessation is also not advisable during times of high anxiety, adding nicotine withdrawal to the anxiety you are experiencing could be very counter-productive indeed. If you smoke regularly, minimise the daily amount, if you smoke occasionally, stop completely if you feel you can do so with ease.4. PostureGood posture is vital to maintaining healthy circulation, digestion and breathing. Slouching can compress the thoracic cavity meaning that the heart, lungs and digestive tract have to work harder. Be sure to take regular breaks if you have to sit for long periods, use a comfortable chair and make sure you sit upright and squarely. There are many posture aids on the market if you feel that you are struggling to maintain good posture.5. ExerciseExercise is an important element of maintaining good health, but what you might consider strenuous could be a ?walk in the park? for die hard exercisers. If you are experiencing high levels of anxiety or stress, it is advisable to do exercise which doesn?t raise the heart rate more than 20 beats per minute above your resting heart rate. In many cases, anxiety levels can be adversely affected by strenuous exercise. Walking, cycling and swimming are the best forms of exercise during high anxiety but you must monitor how they make you feel which is dependent on your fitness levels.6. StressWhat is stress? Often, people experiencing life or work pressure refer to this as ?stress?. Stress is the physical illness caused by constant, inappropriate levels of life pressure. Stress can manifest itself in many ways including high anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal complaints and high blood pressure for example.Experiencing true stress can be the result of making a bad decision. What is this bad decision? Anyone who gives work or life events too much credibility, allowing it to become invasive and damaging to the pleasures of life has made this bad decision. Consider what is important, ask yourself whether what you are doing or your lack of participation in something will cause any actual harm; prioritise your activities, make to do lists and take regular ?mental health? breaks. Talk to other people involved in your routines to discover whether what you are doing is productive or correct and plan ahead of time to avoid time allocation conflicts. In a sentence: Decide what is important and make that the focus during the time you allocate to it but remember nothing is as important as you and your loved ones.7. SleepYou probably don?t need as much sleep as you think in order to function efficiently during the day, however, for those who suffer with severe insomnia, there are many things you can do to promote healthy sleep patterns.? Drink a mug of warm chamomile tea 30 minutes before bed time.
? Make sure you are comfortable in bed ? bad sleeping posture is responsible for many cases of insomnia
? Make the bedroom a place of rest only. Put a sign on the door saying ?sleep room? to emphasise this.
? Be sure and have a light snack 30 minutes before bed time, going through the night without eating is a struggle for healthy people, when you are anxious this becomes a bigger issue.
? If you lie in bed for more than 30 minutes trying to sleep, get up, make a drink of warm milk or chamomile, make yourself comfortable and snug on the sofa, turn on the TV quietly and watch till you fall asleep? no action movies though? something semi-boring!
? Try relaxation or visualisation CDs to enter a deep state of relaxation, these work wonders.8. Environment & behaviourYour environment and your behaviour and your reaction to them, is one of the most important factors in the formation and perpetuation of high anxiety, it is the ?software? that feeds your ?hard drive? with the information it requires to ?re-set? at a higher benchmark level in your mind. You know what things in your life are positive and which are negative influences and the solution to gaining equilibrium is to implement a filtration process? we only live once, we need to maximise the potential of everything around us to feel fulfilled; removing negative behaviours and influences is key to our happiness and wellbeing and to re-programming the subconscious mind.9. RelationshipsAssess what your relationships bring to you, how fulfilling they are and how they could be improved. Decide how you can minimise the negative ones, maximise the positive and mend the broken ones. Being surrounded by happy people has an enormous impact on how we feel, capitalise on this.10. Avoiding confrontationConfrontation is the largest cause of elevated anxiety. As anger rises, so too does adrenalin which causes a flood of anxious emotion, thoughts and symptoms. Avoiding confrontation is simple, just remove yourself from the person who causes it, count to ten mentally, take yourself to a place where you can calm down. The only person who benefits from your anger is your opponent, every time you become emotional in these situations, you are reinforcing your anxiety and perpetuating how you feel. You hold all the cards, you can choose to stay or to go, to react or not too? it?s difficult, but, if you can turn the cheek, you will win out every time.11. Avoiding ?power sappers?Who or what are power sappers? Power sappers are people who draw energy from you but give nothing in return. Avoid them at all times, they do not positively contribute to your life and serve no purpose. IF they are people that you can?t avoid, such as your boss or a work colleague, simply shut down your emotions when in their presence and do not allow them to influence your anxiety or mood? they sap your power to build their own and have no respect for you and your wellbeing. Surround yourself with ?power givers?, you know who they are.12. The past, present and future of youYou have experienced the past, you are living the present and the future is the only thing you can influence. Memory has a purpose; it?s a filing system for your experiences, both negative and positive. Negative memories need to be filed away in the archives of your mind allowing your opportunity to create positive memories to be your focus. Live for tomorrow, not yesterday and make today the first day of the rest of your life. Those who hang onto the past never experience a positive future.13. Goal setting ? your personal challengesTake a blank sheet of paper and write down your short, medium and long term goals. Be realistic about your ability but stretch your expectations. Never be disappointed by your lack of achieving your goals, instead, be impressed by your ability to chase them. Try everything, take every opportunity that arises and regret nothing, it?s all part of the challenges and your personal enjoyment of life.14. You timeSelfishly claim a section of each day, say 1 hour, to do things for you. You could have your nails done, have a massage or simply read a book, the choice is yours. Remove yourself from interruptions, from noise or stress and make that time yours, every day. Ask a friend or partner to assist you with this if need be? it?s the only link you have with the old you, pre-children, pre-work, pre-marriage? it?s your ?grass roots? time.15. ConfidenceRegardless of your ability or achievements, have confidence in the decisions you make and take responsibility for the consequences. Be able to apologise for wrong decisions and be prepared to adapt to changes. Confidence comes from not fearing the outcome of your actions, only you can take control of this but if you do, you will be able to do and say thing that are usually the reserve of super achievers.16. Feeling fulfilledFeeling fulfilled is the key to happiness, to anxiety free living and to enjoyment of each and every day. Feeling fulfilled is the result of a combination of realistic goal setting, removal of stressful influences and personal achievement, in fact every positive influence you can gather on your journey. Feeling fulfilled is simpler than you think and if you apply all the rules outlined in this list, you won?t go far wrong.Charles LindenThe Linden Method for Anxiety, Panic Attacks & PhobiasThe Linden Centre+44 (0)1562 742004www.thelindenmethod.co.ukwww.panic-anxiety.comCharles Linden, ex anxiety disorder sufferer and developer of The Linden Method for anxiety, panic attacks, OCD and phobias is also head of The Linden Centres International.

***OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) Explained***

Obsessive compulsive disorder is a symptom of an underlying anxiety condition. The obsessions experienced by OCD sufferers range from inappropriate thoughts, for example about harming someone or subconscious counting, to carrying out invasive, compulsive rituals such as constant checking, hand washing or tidying.OCD is driven by anxiety. The ?what if??? thought processes, driven by the anxiety of possible consequences, cause the sufferer to ?manufacture? inappropriate scenarios in their minds, catastrophic thinking such as ?what if I don?t wash my hands again, will something bad happen?? Once the sufferer has made the link in their mind between avoiding anxiety provoking consequences and hand-washing, the subconscious, anxious mind perpetuates those thoughts and the obsessive compulsions of OCD develop.Like all anxiety disorders, OCD usually develops as a result of increased exposure to anxiety provoking situations or experiences; the sufferer then creates a subconscious, anxious ?habit? in their subconscious mind which becomes automatic. Whilst there is no evidence that anxiety disorders are genetically linked, those with a predisposition to high levels of anxiety are the most vulnerable. Usually, anxiety disorders are experienced by people with a high level of creativity which is a requirement of the subconscious mind which utilises that creativity to create these inappropriate anxious scenarios and behaviours. OCD can be accompanied by phobias and panic attacks and can present the sufferer with a wide range of anxious symptoms and thoughts.Charles LindenThe Linden Method for Anxiety, Panic Attacks & PhobiasThe Linden Centre+44 (0)1562 742004www.thelindenmethod.co.ukwww.panic-anxiety.comCharles Linden, ex anxiety disorder sufferer and developer of The Linden Method for anxiety, panic attacks, OCD and phobias is also head of The Linden Centres International.

***Occasional Heartburn*** Most people experience occasional unimarter UniMarter
***Occasional Heartburn***

Most people experience occasional heartburn. According to a recent survey, 25% of Americans surveyed experience heartburn once a month and 12% experience heartburn symptoms once a week. Occasional heartburn, occasional indigestion and gas are not generally serious problems, but frequent or chronic heartburn could be.People may experience occasional heartburn, occasional indigestion and / or gas following a large meal, after eating spicy or fried foods or even after the morning cup of coffee. Stressful and fast paced lifestyles often lead to occasional heartburn. According to the recent survey conducted by the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, New York, heartburn seems to be experienced more frequently by people who live in the US and other western countries than in Asian or eastern countries. This could be due to different lifestyles or different food preferences. Gingerroot is frequently used in Asian cooking and is known to provide relief from occasional heartburn.While occasional heartburn, occasional indigestion, bloating or gas is not generally cause for concern, frequent heartburn or other digestive problems may indicate a more serious health problem. Gastrointestinal acid reflux disease, which is commonly referred to by the acronym GARD or simply acid reflux typically presents with complaints of frequent heartburn. Acid reflux is simply medical terminology for the burning sensation that a person feels when stomach acid bubbles up out of the stomach and into the esophagus, the lower part of the throat that connects to the stomach. Reflux simply defined means to flow backwards. Products that provide relief for occasional heartburn typically neutralize the stomach acid with calcium carbonate or other alkaline product. Peppermint oil is sometimes used in over the counter products, not only to improve the taste, but to reduce gas and soothe the throat.There are a number of products designed to provide relief from occasional heartburn. Frequent heartburn, on the other hand, may require a daily medication and / or lifestyle changes to prevent attacks. It may not be possible to completely avoid occasional heartburn, occasional indigestion or other stomach upsets, but you may be able to reduce the frequency by eating small meals in a relaxed environment.For more information about occasional heartburn and other common digestive complaints, visit www.digestive-disorders-guide.com.Patsy Hamilton writes informational articles for the Digestive Disorders Guide.

***The Truth about Anxiety, Panic Attacks, OCD & Phobias*** unimarter UniMarter
***The Truth about Anxiety, Panic Attacks, OCD & Phobias***

Well firstly, they are not mental illnesses, they are behavioural conditions which are stored as memory, habit and instinct in an organ called the Amygdala, seated inside the subconscious brain; and, secondly, I don?t like the term disorder, it implies illness and inappropriate anxiety isn?t an illness, it?s inappropriate anxiety... which can be reduced to an appropriate level very quickly indeed!Psychologists and doctors are wrong! Anxiety disorder doesn?t require drug treatment, in fact, drug treatment is counter-productive; neither does it require counselling or psychological analysis, anxiety can't be analyzed, by its very nature, anxiety disorder is a 'physical' heightening of normal anxiety levels... true, the catalyst for the increased anxiety may have been some kind of trauma, but this is NOT the cause, the cause is simply the new, higher level of anxiety and THIS can easily be corrected.So what can be done? It?s simple, the Amygdala which is confirmed by the National Institute of mental Health as the cause of anxiety disorders, stores the anxious response as habitual memory or instinctual memory which reacts independently of ?conscious? control. You just can?t control it by thinking about it!So, when this organ becomes ?re-set? at a higher than normal benchmark level of anxiety due to catalysts such as stress, work pressure, bereavement, or whatever, the subconscious continues to fire anxious signals out from it even though YOU know ?consciously? that it is wrong... it should have returned to normal, but through a process called 'operant conditioning', it 'learns' to stay at this high level. (Operant conditioning is the process that happens when we learn any new skill by repetition, e.g. driving, instrument etc).By undermining this anxious reaction and replacing it with a 'more appropriate' reaction, the Amygdala can be ?re-set? to a completely appropriate ?normal? anxiety level? this eliminates the inappropriate anxiety completely and restores normality; free form anxiety symptoms, panic attacks, OCD and phobias... PERMANENTLY!It makes so much sense. Let us show you your 'Roadmap To Freedom From Anxiety'Written by Charles Linden

***No Pain No Gain: Therapy Is teksty Great Way To Better Your Bo unimarter UniMarter
***No Pain No Gain: Therapy Is teksty Great Way To Better Your Body and Change Your Life***

Physical therapy is something that many people should consider at some point. No, you don't have to have a serious injury or be recovering from surgery to benefit from some sort of therapy. Massage therapy is a great form of therapy that can help you learn how to relax, so that you don't feel as tense, and your whole body feels better that it did before. Spa products or home health products coupled with massage therapy often attacks stress and tension quickly and effectively. Banner therapy is another type of therapy that can change the way you live your life, and simply help you live better than you did before.Therapy often has a negative association, because many people think that they need to be suffering to take part in some sort of physical therapy. teksty good deal of the time therapy is preventative, or attacks a slight problem before it becomes severe. Depending on what the problem, you don't even need a doctor to help you seek out therapy, such as massage therapy. Therapy is often a good way to avoid future health problems, or can do away with the need for surgery or more painful or in depth medical procedures. Therapy can often work wonders; even for those that have lost all hope of finding an easy fix for their ailments.Who Can Benefit From Therapy?Just about anyone can benefit from therapy. Whether it's physical therapy for some sort of physical ailment or recuperation, massage therapy to do away with stress and sore muscles, occupational therapy to help your body do the things you need to do you'll find that just about everyone can benefit from therapy of some sort. Even when we are feeling healthy there is probably some sort of therapy that could help enrich our lives and help our bodies move and function more effectively.What Does Therapy Cost?The price of therapy really does vary from person to person and by circumstance. Massage therapy can cost as little as $10 an hour, and can be something you indulge in once a week to relieve stress and increase blood flow. Occupational therapy, banner therapy, and physical therapy really does vary because health insurance often covers a good portion of this, so that individuals only have to pay $20 or so to actually see the therapist. This is good news, because it means that a good portion of the population can seek the therapy they need to enrich their lives, whether they simply suffer from stress, or need occupational therapy after surgery or an accident.Does Therapy Hurt?Therapy can hurt; it depends on what type of therapy you are seeking. For instance, think about the last good massage you had. If you had any tight muscles, having it rubbed hurt, but you dealt with the pain because you knew it would be better in the long run. This is the way therapy works, it might hurt in the short term, but the pain is worth it and indicative of healing and the ability to live without the pain and eventually, without the therapy.Many people feel empowered when they take place in any type of therapy, because they are taking steps toward feeling better inside and outside. Therapy can be slow going, but if you keep at it you'll generally find that it is worth sticking with for the long haul, and it really can change your life for the better. If therapy hurts, set goals for yourself so that you can see the progress and tell yourself that it is worth it, and that it is doing some good.Chris Robertson is an author of Majon International, one of the worlds MOST popular internet marketing companies on the web.

***Top Ten So-Called
***Top Ten So-Called "Habits" That May Indicate That You Have Anxiety***

There isn't anyone in this world who does not engage in some sort of "habit"...and often on a daily basis. Some people walk fast, while others twist their hair, for example. While most of these are actually benign behaviors, you should know that there are some habits that actually could be a sign that you suffer from anxiety.Below are ten of the most common behaviors that people often erroneously refer to as "habits, without realizing that they may be attempting to compensate for feeling anxious:1. Smoking - So many people smoke now...although many are learning that it can cause great harm to their health. There are many smoking cessation programs available which one can access. Note that smoking is often a telltale sign of anxiety.2. Nail Biting - Thousands of people bite their nails every day. This ordinarily does not do much harm to people, except that it may lead to infection around the nail. Pay attention to the fact that you may be engaging in "nail biting" because you feel nervous and stressed.3. Hair Pulling - This is more common than people think. Some people pull hair out from various regions of the body (eyelashes, eyebrows, scalp, etc...) when they feel anxious about something. Often this is done unconsciously. If done regularly and in excess, it can lead to hair-loss, and may be a sign of a more serious disorder known as "trichotillomania" (a close relative of a disorder known as OCD-Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). Just note that this could indicate that you have anxiety.4. Leg Bouncing - This can't do any harm to you...except to drive other people nuts watching you bounce your leg! However, it could be a sign to you that you need to relax more and are suffering from anxiety.5. Foot Tapping - This can't cause any problems, other than to annoy others who are watching you tap your feet! Although...your feet might get tired! Bear in mind that "foot tapping" may be more than just a habit...it may indicate that you are stressed out.6. Overeating - Most of us love to eat! But if done in excess, it could cause significant weight gain and lead to a variety of health problems. Comfort foods, such as brownies, cookies, fast food, and other high-sugar / high-fat snacks can cause obesity. Keep in mind that your "habit" of overeating may be a clear sign of anxiety.7. Undereating - This could create a problem in that you may not get adequate nutrition and you could lose significant amounts of weight, which is referred to as "anorexia" in the medical world. It is essential to get the proper vitamins and minerals in order to stay healthy. Please note that undereating could be a sign that you have anxiety.8. Oversleeping - This is known in the medical world as "hypersomnia". It can't do any harm to you, but if you are oversleeping you may be depressed. Depression is a close relative of anxiety, so be aware that you may have "hypersomnia" because you suffer from anxiety.9. Undersleeping - This is known in the medical world as "insomnia" and can effect what's known as cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that is effected when sleep is inadequate. Balanced cortisol levels are highly essential to having proper sleep, and thus keeping anxiety at a minimum. If you have "insomnia", then this may be a clear indicator that you have anxiety.10. Skin Picking - This "habit" can cause harm to you, in that it may create scarring or infection to the area that is being picked. Note that sometimes people who engage in this "habit" are doing it to relieve stress or anxiety.There are four easy steps to help you to better understand your "habit" and its cause:Step 1. Pay attention to your own behavior, and notice your "habits"Step 2. Ask others what habits they see you engaging in, of which you may be unaware.Step 3. Document in a journal what these habits are, and when you engage in them.
(e.g. "I seem to pace just before a big exam in school.")Step 4. Over time, you can establish a pattern of when you engage in a particular habit, and thus pinpoint the cause.Alexandra Mannock is a former professional psychotherapist who recently released a hot new e-book entitled, "Anxiety Zapper: The Easiest Guide To Having Complete Power Over Your Anxiety" found at http: / / www.anxietyzapper.com.

***Do You Really Need To Wash Your Hands*** We were told fro unimarter UniMarter
***Do You Really Need To Wash Your Hands***

We were told from the time that we were little kids to wash our hands. "Did you wash your hands before dinner"? Our mothers would ask. "Wash up before bed" our parents often commanded. "Johnny, stop picking your nose. Now go wash up before you eat" I?m sure that most of us out there have heard these shouts or something similar to them from our parents as we were growing up. What is the big deal about this anyway? Well, that is what this article about.The Center of Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta cites five common ways in which those disease- causing germs can be transmitted on our household. The first is hands to food. Here, the germs are transmitted from dirty hands to food. You or someone else eats the food and possibly gets sick. Another way is changing an infants diaper. Obviously, there is a multitude of germs in an infant?s stool. Without washing, these germs cam be transmitted anywhere and onto anything. Another was if from food to hand. Here the person is handling raw uncooked foods. If they do not wash their hands, they can spread these germs anywhere even back onto other foods, which are then consumed. Nose, mouth, eyes is another way of transmitting germs. Hand washing can prevent all of the above.What is the big deal you ask? Well, the incidence of hospital- borne infections is on the rise. Why? One of the reasons is that hospital staff is not washing their hands the way that they should. Properly, hospital staff should wash their hands in between touching every patient. I need to tell you that is not the case. As a matter of fact, that is no where near the case. teksty surgical hand wash for instance, use to take about a good 10 minutes, we would start at the elbows and work down, scrubbing each finger individually to its tip. I would venture to guess that isn?t happening much today. There was a recent article in the Sunday San Diego Union newspaper that discussed just that fact. It talked about how people were getting preventable infections unnecessarily because hands were not properly washed. Do we care now as much as we did even 10 years ago about what we do to others? I don?t think so.Hand washing is the beginning of infection control. This is an indisputable fact. Not simply a statement. Also, does it matter how we wash our hands, I think so. Simply rinsing you hands with water isn?t good enough. You need to wash your hand with both soap and water and the temperature needs to be on the hot side. Why? Because of the oils on your skin, the germs can adhere to your skin so simply rinsing with water will not get rid of them. The soap forms a bond with the oils and will take the germs with them. Also, the heat of the water opens the skin pores and releases some of the bacteria in them.Here are some interesting facts:One half of bacterial infections don?t respond to antibiotics any longer.
Only an estimated 22-63% of medical personnel wash their hands between patient contacts.
There are an estimated 1.5 million infections per year that occur in long term care facilities.
Direct touching transmits 80% of common infections.
There are approximately 22 million cases of food poisoning with 10,000 deaths per year, which the FDA say is, cause by lack of hand washing.
Seniors and the disabled are 10 times more likely to die from food poisoning than the rest of the population. This accounts for 1 / 3 of the US population.
The top cause for food borne illnesses is poor hygiene
The top cause for poor hygiene is lack of hand washing.
The above stats were gotten from the Food and Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control.Living in a fast paced society leaves little time for many people to stop and wash their hands. They are not thinking about the consequences of their lack of action. However, you as the disabled person must pay attention. Why? Because as I stated above, you are 10 times more likely to die from food poisoning than the general population. This is a fact folk not fiction. Most individuals who are disabled are exposed more frequently to health care providers from doctors to nurses? aids. Not all of them take the time to wash their hands, thus exposing you to infection. The remedy here is to ask the medical provider whether they are a doctor or an orderly to wash their hands before they touch you. Don?t take a no for an answer.Let?s take a look at the above facts. Fact One; over half of the bacterial infections don?t respond to antibiotics any longer. Because of the overuse of antibiotics, many of bacteria have become resistant to them. It used to be when I was growing up (I?m in my mid- 40?s) the doctors wouldn?t give us an antibiotic usually penicillin unless our fever lasted more than three days. This gave our body a chance to fight off the infection. The antibiotics were used only if we couldn?t do it on our own. Today however, people don?t want to be inconvenienced, they don?t have the time to come back if they don?t get better, so they pressure the doctors to give them medication. The result is bacterial that becomes resistant to the antibiotic.Fact Two; only an estimate 22-63% of medical personnel wash their hands between patient contact. This scares the heck out of me. As disabled people, we deal with medical personnel very often. How do we know that the nurse who cleaned out the colostomy bag from the patient in the other room right before she came in to perform a procedure on you washed her hands? Its simple, ask. If she says that she didn?t, don?t let her touch you with doing so. Do not be ashamed to speak up. You may be saving yourself an infection. I can tell you from working in a hospital that there is so much work to do that sometimes they simply forget. Even if it is your doctor, speak up.This leads us into Fact Three; that there is an estimated 1.5 million infections that occur in long term care facilities per year. These facilities do not have the same ratio of trained medical personnel that hospitals do. They usually hire medical assistants or nurse?s aides to perform the direct patient care. These individuals may not fully understand the full ramifications on not washing their hands. That is why you better.Fact Four; direct touching transmits 80% of common infections. It has been said and proven that our hands touch every part of our body a number of times every day. So it is easy then to comprehend how when we rub our eyes after touching bloody meat from the grocery store without washing our hands that we can cause an infection. Common infections include but are not limited to: colds, sore throats, eye infections, the flu, other viruses?Fact Five; the FDA says that there are approximately 22 million cases of food poisoning with approximately 10,000 deaths per year that is caused by a lack of hand washing. In my opinion, you have to be very suspicious of the food handlers in restaurants or fast food chains. Who are the food preparers? Are they illegal immigrants from a third world country and possibly sick? Being hired simply because of cheap labor. You need to ask those questions about the food establishments that you frequent. Also, don?t discount yourself. Preparing your own food with dirty / contaminated hands can also cause food poisoning.Fact Six; seniors and the disabled are 10 times more likely to die from food poisoning than the rest of the population. This to me is a very scary fact. Whether we like it or not, most disabled people have compromised immune systems. This either because of medications that they are taken, or appliances that you are using, or because you are sedentary. Either way, this should be a huge incentive for you to make sure that your hands are washed.Facts Seven and Eight; the top cause of food borne illnesses is poor hygiene and the top cause of poor hygiene is lack of hand washing, speak for themselves.Many of the germs that we are talking about here are what we call opportunistic. This means that they usually will not cause disease. They actually live on your skin or in your bowels. However, if your health is compromised because of a disability or a common cold, these germs can do great harm.Many of you who are disabled have compromised immune systems. Either from your illness, or from medications that you may be taken or simply because you live a sedentary life. Because of this, you are more susceptible to infection. It is simple to wash you hands isn?t it? Well do it! It could save your life.Diana Corso is the founder and publisher of http: / / www.NutritionalUpdates.com. Diana has a BS in Biology and an MBA.

***Are You Overly Anxious?*** I went to Psychology Today to unimarter UniMarter
***Are You Overly Anxious?***

I went to Psychology Today to see if I had any other disorders than the one I caught there the other day. I reported that I had caught OCD on their web site. OCD is obsessive-compulsive disorder.Actually I caught it from my father.I?m sorry Psychology Today.I decided to take a look at Anxiety.Colin Allen has an article posted at the Psychology Today site called When Worry Takes Over. See it at http: / / www.psychologytoday.com / articles / pto-2811.html.I learned that OCD is just part of Anxiety so I wasn?t afraid of catching anything new.You can tell if you have anxiety by your answer to a situation.An example goes something like the one given at the Psychology Today site: Emily?s mother takes Emily to the doctor to check on her growth.If you don?t have anxiety, you will say, ?Well, how tall was she??If you do have anxiety, you will say, ?My God! Has it metastasized??So that is how you tell.Colin Allen says that extreme anxiety goes like this: Sometimes anxiety explodes in a panic attack, marked by a general feeling of terror. teksty person engulfed in a panic attack usually experiences a racing or pounding heart, sometimes even pain or heaviness in the chest. Breathing becomes difficult. The body trembles and hands turn clammy. The person may notice tingling in their hands and feet, sometimes in their arms and legs. They may start to feel light-headed.Well, I?ve had all of those symptoms. I thought it was just my arteriosclerosis and old age! In fact my new aortic valve donated to me by a benevolent hog has relieved most of my symptoms.You wouldn't think a hog valve could cure anxiety would you?It cured mine.If you are not an old foggy like me and you have the symptoms described by Colin Allen you might seek a therapist to help you overcome your anxiety.Choose a therapist of opposite sex so that when the therapist hugs you and says, "There, there, there," you won't get overly anxious thinking you are engaged in homosexual activity.I subscribed to the print magazine Psychology Today at the site. Who knows where an article idea might pop up?I told you I have OCD. Well I cured it myself just by knowing I had it.Last night I only checked to see if the doors were locked three times.John teksty.

***The Obsessive-Compulsive Person***

Do you continually check to see if the doors are locked while in your car or in your home? Do you listen for sounds in your motel room? Wonder if anyone is messing with your car parked outside?Do you wash your hands over and over again like you had just come in contact with whatever causes leprosy? Well, if not today, five years ago.Do you wonder if you put a stamp on that letter you just dropped into the mailbox after having checked the letter a zillion times?Is that a spot of lint on the clothes drier exhaust screen? Do I need to dust the table out on the deck although I dusted it five minutes ago?If the above describes your behavior, you have OCD.I have OCD.I learned that at http: / / www.psychologytoday.com / conditions / ocd.html.If you suspect you have OCD whatever you do don?t go to this web site. It won?t help you any.Another warning: if you do not have OCD, don?t go there either. You might catch it.For those of you who are now worried about catching leprosy because of my thoughtless example above, don?t go to http: / / www.flash-med.com / Cause_of_Leprosy.asp.When I started this article, I was content being obsessive. My dad was obsessive. Why not me?Dad checked the parking break on his car from Salt Lake City to Coeur d'Alene. I checked mine from Atlantic City to Payson, Arizona.Psychology Today says on their site referenced earlier that the disease was rare until the psychologist decided to make a big deal about it.Well, they didn?t say that. I?m just reading between the lines.Now that the disease is a disease and is big rather than small, it can be treated by drugs and therapy.Psychologist must now be making a bundle on OCD. I have a friend in the business. I?ll have to ask him.I decided to write about being obsessive this afternoon. I didn?t have OCD until I went to the Psychology Today site. Then I caught it. So watch out if you go there.Recently I have been scribbling out articles for http: / / ezinearticles.com / . I?ve been doing this for five months producing about 50 articles each month. There are over 12,000 writers and I wanted to be in the top 100. Then I wanted to be in the top 50. Then I wanted to be in the top 25. Then I wanted to be in the top 20. Now I want to be in the top 15. I decided that was being obsessive.After going to Psychology Today I realize that I?ve had dangerous thoughts for years. Repetitive thoughts! D?j? vu all over again as Yogi Berra said.These thoughts are of course harmless before you go to Psychology Today.They then become dangerous and dehabilitating.Psychology is an exact non-science.Psychology is not an exact non-science.Psychology is an exact non-science.Psychology is non-science.Don?t you just hate psychology?Don?t you just hate psychology?Oh! Sorry about that repetitive thinking.Got to go! Just got an idea for Article Number 257!Eleven more articles and I?ll be anchored at position 16?a great base camp for the great climb to number 15.John teksty.

***OCD Over Compulsive Disorder - Till Death Do Us Part***

To lose a loved one is heartbreaking, to see some one you love in pain is heartbreaking, to leave your child on their first day of school is heartbreaking. All these sad events can be removed from our thoughts if nurtured tenderly and tactfully. But what of over compulsive disorder a disease you can not negotiate with thus causing the patient to suffer from heartbreaking symptoms till death do us part.

***Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) And Its Definition***

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a condition that can happen to anyone, regardless of age, sex or economical condition. It has been found that OCD is one of the 10 leading causes of disability around the world and just in the United States there are approx. 5 million people suffering this ailment.OCD manifests in the individual as the presence of persistent ideas, thoughts, images or impulses that are experimented as intrusive and alien to the person having them. This means that they are against the will of the individual and with themes that generally make the person suffer greatly.An important characteristic of this ailment is the obsession that accompanies the alien thoughts; this is they repeat themselves during long periods of time without the person being able to stop them and in occasions causing a great discapacity due to the amount of time dedicated to these ideas.These obsessions are frequently accompanied by behaviors that are also repetitive and perceived as useless at the beginning of the OCD condition manifestation and this is what is known as compulsions. Compulsive behaviors, as well as obsessions, consume lots of time and they are generally done as a response to the obsessions. This is because the compulsions diminish a bit the great anxiety felt by the person suffering the obsessive thoughts. Though this behavior is not the solution to the intrusive thoughts of the person suffering from OCD. On the contrary they only favor the continuing of the ailment making it even worse due to the simultaneous presence of obsessions and compulsions causing great suffering to the person.It is all this combined characteristics of obsessions and compulsions that is clinically characterized as the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). It is very important to mention that these words; obsession and compulsion, as used in the medical terminology related to this ailment, have a different connotation than when used in the everyday life when they refer to characteristics of the personality as perfectionism, perseverance, scrupulosity, etc.Natan Young is an expert author in a number of health themes.

***What are the Causes of Occupational Asthma?***

Some professions can actually cause asthma or, trigger it to make it worse, this is called occupational asthma.Most jobs locations, especially office and factory professions, have some kind of dust, smells and other fumes, with which you have direct contact or, indirectly, as it may be going through the ventilation or air systems (from one office to another), producing occupational asthma.Usually the levels that you breathe in are so minute (small) that you aren?t troubled by it.This means that if the job location , or your work environment, is the cause of your occupational asthma, your asthmatic conditions will improve if you leave that job, or that at least change your work environment, assuming that you and your doctor have caught and treated it early enough.However the longer you continue working in the same conditions which are causing the asthma, the more likely you are to continue having asthmatic conditions even after you leave those working conditions and stay away from the dust, smells or fumes.Unfortunately, most continue with a job in a damaging environment as they have not realized that there is a relationship between their environment and their health, or because it is seemingly very difficult to leave or change jobs. The cost of either is very high, occupational asthma, or other health issues.When a job or workplace is causing the asthma, co-workers, are also affected.However if it is just you it could be another cause such as job-related stress rather than any fumes or pollutants.Wrongly blaming your job for your asthma can have very bad effects.Why lose your job if it is harmless and didn't cause your asthma at all?Also, if people think that the workplace caused asthma, the expense of improving working conditions may mean there will be fewer jobs or in some cases no jobs at all.In addition, a diagnosis of occupational asthma may reduce your chances of future employment.However, if your gets better during the weekends, on an extended break, or when you are on vacation, it likely that something at work is the cause of it.The dust, fumes or allergens in various trades such as bakeries (flour), working with animals, working with pharmaceuticals, craftsmen (especially wood), electronics (soldering), textile dyes (reactive dyes), polyurethane paints and plastic moulding, etc., can be direct causes of occupational asthma.Oddly enough, many substances with a nasty smell don't seem to cause asthma, even though they can cause allergic reactions in the nose.If you believe you may have asthma, occupational or not, do not hesitate to speak with your doctor immediately.Learn More About How You Can Treat and Live with Asthma at Asthma-Explained.com / asthma-treatments.html

***I Have a Migraine Headache***

I've been around several people that use the word Migraine, when they talk about having a headeache. Do these people actually have migraines? What is a migraine, and are there ways to relieve them? These are some of the questions I will answer.The word "migraine" comes from the Greek word "hemikranion" which translates to "pain affectin one side of the head". teksty Migraine is a headache in a form, that is usually very strong and can almost be disabling, when intense. Unlike commong headache's which everyone is prone to, migraines are a neurologic disease, and the most common type of vascular headache.Although everyone individual affected by migraines will characterize the symptoms differently, the book says: severe pain on one or more sides of the head, an upset stomach, and at times disturbed vision. The difference between a headache and migraine is summed up in the word "Aura", which refers to the migraine features that are non-headache like. Migraines have been present throughout history, and it is known that family history and genetic factors are important in the likelyhood of migraines.Many doctors deal with migraines, and will have several recommended treatment for migraines. It is in my experience that over the counter pain killers, and other drugs have their part in reducing the pain migraines cause, but are never actually able to cure them. Along with these drugs come several unfriendly side-effects, which are not enjoyable to say the least. Of course these side effects and effectiveness of the drugs are different on an invidual basis. The treatment that I have seen to be the most effective is the use of Chinese medicine, in particular accupuncture. Accupuncture is a natural medicine in that you are not injecting any drugs or anything inside of your body. You are simply just working with what is already there. Talk to your physician, and others that have experienced migraines, to find out what steps might be right for you.Feel free to reprint this article as long as you keep the article, this caption and author biography in tact with all hyperlinks.Ryan Fyfe is the owner and operator of Migraine Relief Treatment - http: / / www.migraine-relief-treatment.com, which is the best site on the internet for all Migraine related information.

***Over Compulsive Disorder - Murder In Mind***

To assume that OCD is a rare complaint then think again, over compulsive disorder is one of the most common psychiatric complaints addressed by medical staff worldwide on a daily basis trying to ease the pain and suffering of thousands.Repetitive actions or series of thoughts are just some of the symptoms that OCD forces upon the patient. Rituals can entail hand washing to an extent where the skin becomes infected from the abuse recieved from cleaning agents then we have the number obsessions where the brain urges and compels you to feel like a prime canditate for countdown.Incapacitating depression and anxiety soon worms its way into the brain if none of your compulsive acts are finalized or completed.Mental instability brings OCD into the category as a chronic relapsing condition.
Victims come to terms with the fact that if the diseased brain is not nurtured it can well put a sufferer into an early graveJust in the UK alone Over Compulsive Disorder affects 2% of the population more so in women than men, children are spared no mercies, so be sure to watch for any unusual behaviour in your child. Nip it in the bud before it gets a grip because word has it 1% of children are under the spell of OCD.It is a good chance that everyone has experienced an unpleasant or obsessive thought occasionally at some time in their life. However, victims of OCD engage themselves in ritual behaviours where certain actions have to be repeated over and over again thus causing concern for the patient's healthSufferers understand that their actions can be quite irrational but fail to resist and ignore those little alien forces inside the head voicing an opinion on how we live our lives.
If you feel that you or someone close is affected by the symptoms of OCD then please seek advice from your local GP. Should your doctor feel the need to refer you for further help then this will most probably be therapeutic sessions given by a psychiatrist who specializes in the mental department side of things.Professional help is the only way forward and the best way to deal with OCD that has murder in mind.The reasons behind why we do what do makes it very hard for others to comprehend, most outsiders take the easy option in concluding an end to understanding our antics and their answer is probably insanity.And how right they are where we the victims must be mad not to put and end to this self inflicted self designed to kill condition.Finding help is easier than you could imagine, browse my health page for more information.

***OCD Over Compulsive Disorder - Dying On The Inside***

At least one in fifty adults in America suffer with Over Compulsive Disorder (OCD) double that number for the others who at some time in their lives have been affected by this controlling disease. The frightening thing is how many more are to be cursed by this death sentence imposed on the brain. Speaking from experience it has to be the fatigue factor that without a doubt is the cause behind the bouts of anxiety that accompanies OCD...When the brain becomes abusive with an onslaught of verbal threats to do this / that and the other, your body becomes powerless to fight back. Lethargic and drained of all energy your body like that of a rag doll limp and lifeless, waves the white flag and surrenders.Obsessions and habitual acts that each individual experiences will differ greatly. One thing that does not change is the compassion towards each other from fellow sufferers who understand the reasons behind why we do what we do.
You will find being on the road to recovery less of a burden after confiding in someone for help, talking with others who are suffering from this condition is great place to start.OCD is equally as common in both sex's man woman boy and girl; symptoms have been diagnosed from an early age for many patients.
Obsessive rituals are stereotyped behaviours that are continually repeated causing anxiety where depression starts to sink in making this a major health concern for the patient.There are so many different disorders relating to OCD but taking obsessive symptoms and obsessive thoughts are two that work hand in hand together in a similar way, a destructive force to contend with.Sufferers with obsessive-compulsive disorder are more prone to anxiety / depression bouts where on the other hand sufferers of recurrent depressive disorder can develop obsessive thoughts.
Differentiating between both can be quite difficult in some cases because of the frequency where symptoms occur at the same
Either way both destroy a person's life eating away at their existence; OCD works its magical charm on anyone that proves to be a threat where obsessive rituals are prevented from being carried out.Heaven forbid even as a do gooder looking on never tell a sufferer to stop what they are doing because the chances are you will find that you have just become public enemy number one. Let the patient in their own time figure it out for themselves when enough is enough.Help clinics therapies and treatments are out there for those looking for a cure. Depending on the person and how severe their symptoms let the doctor decide what is the best medication for you.Success stories where over compulsive disorder victims have been liberated gives the likes of you and me some hope for the future to go on living and destroy the heartfelt emotion of dying on the inside.Finding help is easier than you could imagine, browse my health page for more information at http: / / www.benidormbeaches.com

***Borderline Personality Disorder - Things You Need To Know!*** unimarter UniMarter
***Borderline Personality Disorder - Things You Need To Know!***

What are the symptoms of BPD?Individuals with BPD have several of the following symptoms:marked mood swings with periods of intense depression, irritability, and / or anxiety lasting a few hours to a few days;inappropriate, intense, or uncontrolled anger;impulsiveness in spending, sex, substance use, shoplifting, reckless driving, or binge eating;recurring suicidal threats or self-injurious behavior;unstable, intense personal relationships with extreme, black and white views of people and experiences, sometimes alternating between "all good" idealization and "all bad" devaluation;marked, persistent uncertainty about self-image, long term goals, friendships, and values;chronic boredom or feelings of emptiness; and
frantic efforts to avoid abandonment, either real or imagined.
What causes BPD?The causes of BPD are unclear, although psychological and biological factors may be involved. Originally thought to "border on" schizophrenia, BPD also appears to be related to serious depressive illness. In some cases, neurological disorders play a role. Biological problems may cause mood instability and lack of impulse control, which in turn may contribute to troubled relationships. Difficulties in psychological development during childhood, perhaps associated with neglect, abuse, or inconsistent parenting, may create identity and personality problems. More research is needed to clarify the psychological and / or biological factors causing BPD. The field is also actively looking at genetic vulnerabilities.How is BPD treated?teksty combination of psychotherapy and medication appears to provide the best results for treatment of BPD. Medications can be useful in reducing anxiety, depression, and disruptive impulses. Relief of such symptoms may help the individual deal with harmful patterns of thinking and interacting that disrupt daily activities.Long-term outpatient psychotherapy and group therapy (if the individual is carefully matched to the group) can be helpful. Short-term hospitalization may be necessary during times of extreme stress, impulsive behavior, or substance abuse. More structured cognitive interventions like dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) are now widely used.Can other disorders co-occur with BPD?Yes. Determining whether other psychiatric disorders may be involved is critical. BPD may be accompanied by serious depressive illness (including bipolar disorder), eating disorders, and alcohol or drug abuse. About 50 percent of people with BPD experience episodes of serious depression. At these times, the "usual" depression becomes more intense and steady, and sleep and appetite disturbances may occur or worsen. These symptoms, and the other disorders mentioned above, may require specific treatment. teksty neurological evaluation may be necessary for some individuals.What medications are prescribed for BPD?Antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and the new atypical antipsychotics are common for BPD. Decisions about medication use should be made cooperatively between the individual and the therapist or psychiatrist. Issues to be considered include the person's willingness to take the medication as prescribed, and the possible benefits, risks, and side effects of the medication, particularly the risk of overdose.With Much Love,Arthur Buchanan

They often happen in grocery stores, malls, crowds, or while traveling.You may live in constant fear of another attack and may stay away from places where you have had an attack. For some people, fear takes over their lives and they are unable to leave their homes.Panic attacks do not last long, but they are so scary they feel like they go on forever.2. When does panic disorder start and how long does it last?It usually starts when people are young adults, around 18 to 24 years old.

I became so afraid that I did not want to leave my house or other safe places."My friend saw how afraid I was and told me to call my doctor for help. My doctor told me I have panic disorder. My doctor gave me medicine that helps me feel less afraid. I have also been working with a counselor learning ways to cope with my fear.

It is hard for these children to control their behavior and / or pay attention.It is estimated that between 3 and 5 percent of children have ADHD, or approximately 2 million children in the United States. This means that in a classroom of 25 to 30 children, it is likely that at least one will have ADHD.ADHD was first described by Dr. Heinrich Hoffman in 1845. teksty physician who wrote books on medicine and psychiatry, Dr. Hoffman was also a poet who became interested in writing for children when he couldn't find suitable materials to read to his 3-year-old son.The result was a book of poems, complete with illustrations, about children and their characteristics. "The Story of Fidgety Philip" was an accurate description of a little boy who had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.Yet it was not until 1902 that Sir George F. Still published a series of lectures to the Royal College of Physicians in England in which he described a group of impulsive children with significant behavioral problems, caused by a genetic dysfunction and not by poor child rearing?children who today would be easily recognized as having ADHD. Since then, several thousand scientific papers on the disorder have been published, providing information on its nature, course, causes, impairments, and treatments.teksty child with ADHD faces a difficult but not insurmountable task ahead. In order to achieve his or her full potential, he or she should receive help, guidance, and understanding from parents, guidance counselors, and the public education system. This document offers information on ADHD and its management, including research on medications and behavioral interventions, as well as helpful resources on educational options.Because ADHD often continues into adulthood, this document contains a section on the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in adults.SymptomsThe principal characteristics of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. These symptoms appear early in a child's life. Because many normal children may have these symptoms, but at a low level, or the symptoms may be caused by another disorder. It is important that the child receive a thorough examination and appropriate diagnosis by a well-qualified professional.Symptoms of ADHD will appear over the course of many months, often with the symptoms of impulsiveness and hyperactivity preceding those of inattention. Which may not emerge for a year or more. Different symptoms may appear in different settings, depending on the demands the situation may pose for the child's self-control. teksty child who "can't sit still" or is otherwise disruptive will be noticeable in school, but the inattentive daydreamer may be overlooked.The impulsive child who acts before thinking may be considered just a "discipline problem," while the child who is passive or sluggish may be viewed as merely unmotivated. Yet both may have different types of ADHD.All children are sometimes restless, sometimes act without thinking, sometimes daydream the time away. When the child's hyperactivity, distractibility, poor concentration, or impulsivity begin to affect performance in school, social relationships with other children, or behavior at home, ADHD may be suspected. But because the symptoms vary so much across settings, ADHD is not easy to diagnose. This is especially true when inattentiveness is the primary symptom.According to the most recent version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders2 (DSM-IV-TR), there are three patterns of behavior that indicate ADHD. People with ADHD may show several signs of being consistently inattentive. They may have a pattern of being hyperactive and impulsive far more than others of their age. Or they may show all three types of behavior.This means that there are three subtypes of ADHD recognized by professionals. These are the predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type (that does not show significant inattention); the predominantly inattentive type (that does not show significant hyperactive-impulsive behavior) sometimes called ADD?an outdated term for this entire disorder; and the combined type (that displays both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms).Hyperactivity-ImpulsivityHyperactive children always seem to be "on the go" or constantly in motion. They dash around touching or playing with whatever is in sight, or talk incessantly. Sitting still at dinner or during a school lesson or story can be a difficult task. They squirm and fidget in their seats or roam around the room. Or they may wiggle their feet, touch everything, or noisily tap their pencil. Hyperactive teenagers or adults may feel internally restless. They often report needing to stay busy and may try to do several things at once.Impulsive children seem unable to curb their immediate reactions or think before they act. They will often blurt out inappropriate comments, display their emotions without restraint, and act without regard for the later consequences of their conduct.Their impulsivity may make it hard for them to wait for things they want or to take their turn in games. They may grab a toy from another child or hit when they're upset. Even as teenagers or adults, they may impulsively choose to do things that have an immediate but small payoff rather than engage in activities that may take more effort yet provide much greater but delayed rewards.Some signs of hyperactivity-impulsivity are:Feeling restless, often fidgeting with hands or feet, or squirming while seated Running, climbing, or leaving a seat in situations where sitting or quiet behavior is expected
Blurting out answers before hearing the whole question
Having difficulty waiting in line or taking turns.Inattention Children who are inattentive have a hard time keeping their minds on any one thing and may get bored with a task after only a few minutes. If they are doing something they really enjoy, they have no trouble paying attention. But focusing deliberate, conscious attention to organizing and completing a task or learning something new is difficult.Homework is particularly hard for these children. They will forget to write down an assignment, or leave it at school. They will forget to bring a book home, or bring the wrong one. The homework, if finally finished, is full of errors and erasures. Homework is often accompanied by frustration for both parent and child.The DSM-IV-TR gives these signs of inattention:Often becoming easily distracted by irrelevant sights and sounds.Often failing to pay attention to details and making careless mistakes.Rarely following instructions carefully and completely losing or forgetting things like toys, or pencils, books, and tools needed for a task.Often skipping from one uncompleted activity to another.
Children diagnosed with the Predominantly Inattentive Type of ADHD are seldom impulsive or hyperactive, yet they have significant problems paying attention. They appear to be daydreaming, "spacey," easily confused, slow moving, and lethargic.They may have difficulty processing information as quickly and accurately as other children. When the teacher gives oral or even written instructions, this child has a hard time understanding what he or she is supposed to do and makes frequent mistakes. Yet the child may sit quietly, unobtrusively, and even appear to be working but not fully attending to or understanding the task and the instructions.These children don't show significant problems with impulsivity and overactivity in the classroom, on the school ground, or at home. They may get along better with other children than the more impulsive and hyperactive types of ADHD. They may not have the same sorts of social problems so common with the combined type of ADHD. So often their problems with inattention are overlooked. But they need help just as much as children with other types of ADHD, who cause more obvious problems in the classroom.Is It Really ADHD?Not everyone who is overly hyperactive, inattentive, or impulsive has ADHD. Since most people sometimes blurt out things they didn't mean to say, or jump from one task to another, or become disorganized and forgetful, how can specialists tell if the problem is ADHD?Because everyone shows some of these behaviors at times, the diagnosis requires that such behavior be demonstrated to a degree that is inappropriate for the person's age. The diagnostic guidelines also contain specific requirements for determining when the symptoms indicate ADHD.The behaviors must appear early in life, before age 7, and continue for at least 6 months. Above all, the behaviors must create a real handicap in at least two areas of a person's life such as in the schoolroom, on the playground, at home, in the community, or in social settings. So someone who shows some symptoms but whose schoolwork or friendships are not impaired by these behaviors would not be diagnosed with ADHD. Nor would a child who seems overly active on the playground but functions well elsewhere receive an ADHD diagnosis.To assess whether a child has ADHD, specialists consider several critical questions: Are these behaviors excessive, long-term, and pervasive? That is, do they occur more often than in other children the same age?Are they a continuous problem, not just a response to a temporary situation? Do the behaviors occur in several settings or only in one specific place like the playground or in the schoolroom? The person's pattern of behavior is compared against a set of criteria and characteristics of the disorder as listed in the DSM-IV-TR.DiagnosisSome parents see signs of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity in their toddler long before the child enters school. The child may lose interest in playing a game or watching a TV show, or may run around completely out of control.But because children mature at different rates and are very different in personality, temperament, and energy levels, it's useful to get an expert's opinion of whether the behavior is appropriate for the child's age. Parents can ask their child's pediatrician, or a child psychologist or psychiatrist, to assess whether their toddler has an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or is, more likely at this age, just immature or unusually exuberant.ADHD may be suspected by a parent or caretaker or may go unnoticed until the child runs into problems at school. Given that ADHD tends to affect functioning most strongly in school, sometimes the teacher is the first to recognize that a child is hyperactive or inattentive and may point it out to the parents and / or consult with the school psychologist.Because teachers work with many children, they come to know how "average" children behave in learning situations that require attention and self-control. However, teachers sometimes fail to notice the needs of children who may be more inattentive and passive yet who are quiet and cooperative, such as those with the predominantly inattentive form of ADHD.With Much Love,Arthur Buchanan

***Borderline Personality Disorder - BPD & Me!***

Raising questions, finding answersBorderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and the individual's sense of self-identity.Originally thought to be at the "borderline" of psychosis, people with BPD suffer from a disorder of emotion regulation. While less well known than schizophrenia or bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), BPD is more common, affecting 2 percent of adults, mostly young women.There are a high rate of self-injury without suicide intent, as well as a significant rate of suicide attempts and completed suicide in severe cases. Patients often need extensive mental health services, and account for 20 percent of psychiatric hospitalizations.Yet, with help, many improve over time and are eventually able to lead productive lives. Symptoms While a person with depression or bipolar disorder typically endures the same mood for weeks. teksty person with BPD may experience intense bouts of anger, depression, and anxiety that may last only hours, or at most a day. These may be associated with episodes of impulsive aggression, self-injury, and drug or alcohol abuse.Distortions in cognition and sense of self can lead to frequent changes in long-term goals, career plans, jobs, friendships, gender identity, and values. Sometimes people with BPD view themselves as fundamentally bad, or unworthy. They may feel unfairly misunderstood or mistreated, bored, empty, and have little idea who they are. Such symptoms are most acute when people with BPD feel isolated and lacking in social support, and may result in frantic efforts to avoid being alone.People with BPD often have highly unstable patterns of social relationships. While they can develop intense but stormy attachments, their attitudes towards family, friends, and loved ones may suddenly shift from idealization (great admiration and love) to devaluation (intense anger and dislike).Thus, they may form an immediate attachment and idealize the other person, but when a slight separation or conflict occurs, they switch unexpectedly to the other extreme and angrily accuse the other person of not caring for them at all. Even with family members, individuals with BPD are highly sensitive to rejection, reacting with anger and distress to such mild separations as a vacation, a business trip, or a sudden change in plans.These fears of abandonment seem to be related to difficulties feeling emotionally connected to important persons when they are physically absent, leaving the individual with BPD feeling lost and perhaps worthless. Suicide threats and attempts may occur along with anger at perceived abandonment and disappointments.People with BPD exhibit other impulsive behaviors, such as excessive spending, binge eating and risky sex. BPD often occurs together with other psychiatric problems, particularly bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and other personality disorders.TreatmentTreatments for BPD have improved in recent years. Group and individual psychotherapy are at least partially effective for many patients. Within the past 15 years, a new psychosocial treatment termed dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) was developed specifically to treat BPD, and this technique has looked promising in treatment studies.Pharmacological treatments are often prescribed based on specific target symptoms shown by the individual patient. Antidepressant drugs and mood stabilizers may be helpful for depressed and / or labile mood. Antipsychotic drugs may also be used when there are distortions in thinking.Recent Research FindingsAlthough the cause of BPD is unknown, both environmental and genetic factors are thought to play a role in predisposing patients to BPD symptoms and traits. Studies show that many, but not all individuals with BPD report a history of abuse, neglect, or separation as young children Forty to 71 percent of BPD patients report having been sexually abused, usually by a non-caregiver.Researchers believe that BPD results from a combination of individual vulnerability to environmental stress, neglect or abuse as young children. teksty series of events that trigger the onset of the disorder as young adults.Adults with BPD are also considerably more likely to be the victim of violence, including rape and other crimes. This may result from both harmful environments as well as impulsivity and poor judgment in choosing partners and lifestyles.NIMH-funded neuroscience research is revealing brain mechanisms underlying the impulsivity, mood instability, aggression, anger, and negative emotion seen in BPD. Studies suggest that people predisposed to impulsive aggression have impaired regulation of the neural circuits that modulate emotion. The amygdale, a small almond-shaped structure deep inside the brain, is an important component of the circuit that regulates negative emotion.In response to signals from other brain centers indicating a perceived threat, it marshals fear and arousal. This might be more pronounced under the influence of drugs like alcohol, or stress. Areas in the front of the brain (pre-frontal area) act to dampen the activity of this circuit. Recent brain imaging studies show that individual differences in the ability to activate regions of the prefrontal cerebral cortex thought to be involved in inhibitory activity predict the ability to suppress negative emotion.Serotonin, nor epinephrine and acetylcholine are among the chemical messengers in these circuits that play a role in the regulation of emotions, including sadness, anger, anxiety, and irritability. Drugs that enhance brain serotonin function may improve emotional symptoms in BPD.Likewise, mood-stabilizing drugs that are known to enhance the activity of GABA, the brain's major inhibitory neurotransmitter, may help people who experience BPD-like mood swings. Such brain-based vulnerabilities can be managed with help from behavioral interventions and medications, much like people manage susceptibility to diabetes or high blood pressure.Future Progress Studies that translate basic findings about the neural basis of temperament, mood regulation, and cognition into clinically relevant insights which bear directly on BPD represent a growing area of NIMH-supported research.Research is also underway to test the efficacy of combining medications with behavioral treatments like DBT, and gauging the effect of childhood abuse and other stress in BPD on brain hormones. Data from the first prospective, longitudinal study of BPD, which began in the early 1990s, is expected to reveal how treatment affects the course of the illness.It will also pinpoint specific environmental factors and personality traits that predict a more favorable outcome. The Institute is also collaborating with a private foundation to help attract new researchers to develop a better understanding and better treatment for BPD.With Much Love,Arthur Buchanan
