Almost everybody is anxious about something from time to time. Anxiety is normal when there is a threat of some kind and proper cause. The body also prepares to deal with this mild mental derangement. There are some victims who cannot overcome the situations, emotionally disturbed with "Anxiety Neurosis."

What is "Anxiety neurosis"?
  Anxiety neurosis is a mild deviation of mind with unpleasant, distressing emotion usually to be distinguished from fear. This is not to be linked up with an identifiable fear. Fear is aroused by the perception of actual or threatened danger. Anxiety arises when the danger is imagined or cannot be identified or clearly perceived. It is a normal response in stressful situations, but frequently experienced in many mental disorders.

   Anxiety is experienced as a feeling of suspense, helplessness or alternating hope and despair together with excessive alertness. The bodily changes such as:

" I have chest pain, I couldn't sleep well and often disturbed with dreams."
   " I couldn't concentrate on my work. I cannot mingle with my colleagues and family."
   " I feel inferior to everybody".

These victims palpitate with more sweating and eat little or much. Anxiety makes them more irritable which makes them roam here and there. They will be with frowned face, gloomy look and confusion. They feel inferior in every activity. Many patients suffer from diarrhoea without the usual cause, which make the practitioners to diagnose as IBS the irritable bowel syndrome. Adolescents experience loss of sexual derives such as impotence, premature ejaculation. Elderly people experience Hypertension. Anxious children experience bed-wetting.

How does it happens?

Whenever the victim is anxious the adrenaline and cortisone are released in the blood stream. It quickens the heart with palpitation, breathing becomes shallow; the muscles becomes tense; the energy is wasted with this abnormal situation which leads to unbounded tiredness and headache.

In many a different anxiety neurosis is recognized normally. Among them "Phobic Anxiety is common where the irrational fear of certain situations, confining places, particular things and insects characterize this phobia. "Panic attacks" are neurosis with no evidence of reason for extreme fear or tension such as fear for disease and future.

What is obsessive-compulsive disorder?

   Obsessive-compulsive disorders are also a part of anxiety neurosis in which the patients exhibit irrational thoughts and repetitive behaviour. There are two features of this disorder : Obsession and Compulsion. "Obsession" is recurrent and persistent thoughts such as about violence, contamination, or worry about a tragic event. "Compulsion" is an act in the individual, they feel compelled to take in response to an obsession, even though it is senseless and tends to be repetitive.

An example of Obsessive-compulsive disorder is:

  Compulsion repetitive -- checking whether the doors are locked.
      Washing habit in an individual with obsessions about cleanliness or contamination.

How to over come?       

    Education and learning is made on the patient's conscious mental processes in the belief that problems may be due to faulty learning, wrong information, mistaken influences, and so on.
The applications of behavioural principles are helpful in phobias, obsessions, and sexual and interpersonal problems. The symptoms of these disorders are regarded as learned patterns of behaviour this therapy can enable the patient to unlearn.
         For example, in treating a phobia, the patient is taken gradually into the feared situation in about 20 sessions until the fear noticeably reduces.

What is the treatment?

  Anxiety neurosis is a psychosomatic disorder. It requires proper counseling, mild meditation and self-realisation. Homoeopathy treats the victim as a whole entity. We do not treat a patient as a medicine is being prescribed on disease name such as anti depressant, antipsychotic drugs. We treat them by studying the peculiar mental symptoms, physical symptoms and the disease symptoms. It is something peculiar to a patient to ask for his temperament and nature of sweat while taking a case study. These are very vital parts of homoeopathic treatment, which enable your body, react with medicinal force to get rid of your problems.

I had treated such cases with good results. A student was bold enough to write his exams; a Executive engineer was able to command his peon; an abnormal phobic anxiety about crowd, accident has been overcome. Even I have gone through many obsessive-compulsive disorder cases with very good success. The clinical cases are quite interesting.

Few months back I treated a 40-year-old lady with obsessive-compulsive disorder. She was unusual at cleaning as she used to keep on cleaning furniture, dinning chairs, bedspreads and vessels. The problem in her mind was a fear for leprosy. She happened to see a leprosy patient in a bus. She exaggerated her thoughts, as every person coming to her house will spread infection to her and her family members. They consulted a psychologist. No hope! The final move was homoeopathy.

This peculiar case made me to prescribe one of the wonderful Homoeopathic Remedy. After three months she is relieved of her problem!
