Ayurvedic Treatment of Scriptophobia ( Fear Of Writing In Public)

SCRIPTOPHOBIA: OVERVIEW

scriptophobia

Scriptophobia is a social anxiety disorder, which can simply be described as an extreme -- and generally irrational -- fear of writing in public. Similar to other social anxiety disorders which result in avoidance of social situations, Scriptophobia may start in childhood/adolescence, because of certain factors like social traumas or embarrassments. Sometimes, this disorder may also be accompanied by other anxiety disorders or depression.

The term ‘Scriptophobia’ is derived from a combination of Latin word ‘script’ which means ‘writing;’ and Greek word ‘phobos’ which means ‘fear’ or ‘dread.’ Scriptophobia can affect men and women equally.

Like most other phobias/fears, Scriptophobia is also a result of a subconscious overprotection mechanism. The phobia may usually get triggered due to an unresolved emotional conflict, a negative experience in the past, a deep-seated lack of self-esteem, or the fear of bullying/maltreatment by others. Interestingly, one of the possible causes of this fear of writing can also be a fear of excess success.

People suffering from Scriptophobia are afraid of ridicule, criticism, rejection, and embarrassment. As such, in some cases, the disorder may have an adverse effect on the day-to-day lives of the sufferers. In students, in particular, Scriptophobia can be debilitating because it can lead to panic attacks each time the sufferer has to write in the class. The phobia may, therefore, hinder an affected student’s progress in school and have an impact on his/her scholarly achievements. Some students may even give up education because of this fear of writing.

Scriptophobia can sometimes lead to a related disorder called ‘Graphophobia,’ in which the affected individuals develop a strange complex which makes them feel afraid of writing down their personal thoughts. Such individuals may feel that their writing may have devastating outcomes because their innermost thoughts may get exposed.

SYMPTOMS OF SCRIPTOPHOBIA

Patients suffering from Scriptophobia may show diverse physical and emotional indications of the disorder, depending on the extent to which they fear writing. Some patients may avoid writing altogether, while others may become excessively guarded or particular about what they write.

Generally speaking, some of the common symptoms of Scriptophobia are:

  • Extreme Anxiety, Dread
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Heart Palpitations
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Rapid Breathing
  • Nausea
  • Dry Mouth
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Confusion / Inability to communicate clearly
  • Lack of Focus
  • Shaking
  • Feelings of powerlessness
  • Fear or feeling of loss of control
  • Avoidance of social situations.

Scriptophobia may cause an affected individual, especially children, to feel continually depressed, isolated, and anxious. Most children suffering from Scriptophobia may develop some other fears as well. They may be scared of sleeping alone or develop a tendency to remain lonely, or may have imaginary friends. Some children might even experience bed-wetting due to this fear of writing.

SCRIPTOPHOBIA: TREATMENT

For treating Scriptophobia, doctors usually depend on three types of anti-anxiety drugs --- benzodiazepines, anti-depressants and beta-blockers.

In addition some of the other treatment methods for managing this fear of writing may include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Therapy (CT), Habit Strategies To Relax, Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Group Therapy, Energy Psychology, In Vivo Exposure, Response Prevention, and Meditation. The use of therapies is specifically important for the treatment of Scriptophobia in younger patients.

Besides anti-anxiety medications and therapies, Scriptophobia can also be effectively managed in a natural manner, with the help of some excellent herbal products prepared by renowned Ayurveda experts at Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company.

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) Treatment in Ayurveda

PROGRESSIVE MULTIFOCAL LEUKOENCEPHALOPATHY (PML): OVERVIEW

progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a rare, serious and aggressive viral disease of the central nervous system.

In this disease, the ‘white matter’ of the brain gets progressively damaged or inflamed at a number of locations. ‘White matter’ refers to the cells which produce ‘myelin’ --- a fatty substance that coats and protects the brain’s nerve fibers and helps conduct electrical signals. The damage caused to the ‘white matter’ can hamper a person’s ability to move, think, and feel sensations.

Since the damaged ‘white matter’ of the brain does not grow back, the effects of nerve damage in PML patients are permanent, and may be similar to the problems linked to a stroke. The disease can also lead to memory loss and paralysis.

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is, therefore, a potentially fatal disease which typically attacks part of the brain when the body is unable to fight off diseases in the way it naturally should. The key cause of PML is a virus called the ‘John Cunningham’ (JC) virus, which attacks the ‘myelin.’

Although nearly 85% of the adults have the JC virus, most adults do not have any health problems linked to the virus because a normal, healthy immune system can keep it in check. However, in individuals who have a weak immune system, the virus affects the central nervous system and causes PML disease.

SYMPTOMS OF PML

The early symptoms of Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) depend on the nerves which are damaged or inflamed first, because of the onset of the disease. Hence, the symptoms may initially be different for different individuals, and may affect virtually any part of the body.

Nonetheless, some of the symptoms which are generally associated with PML include:

  • General weakness which steadily keeps getting worse
  • Clumsiness or loss of coordination
  • Difficulty in walking
  • Difficulty using the arms/legs
  • Weak muscles
  • Facial drooping
  • Sensory loss
  • Eyesight problems or loss of vision
  • Changes in personality
  • Difficulty in speaking, or loss of language skills
  • Mental slowness
  • Memory problems.

TREATMENT

The treatment of Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is aimed at improving the immune system of the affected individuals with the help of certain medications, therapies or procedures, including Plasma exchange (via blood transfusion), Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART), and Supportive and Investigational therapies.

However, there is no specific treatment of PML because the cause of occurrence of the disease, and some other health considerations, are taken into account for its treatment. As such, treatment methods are based on individual circumstances of the patients.

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy can safely be managed in a natural way, with the help of some excellent herbal products available from Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company. These herbal products -- prepared under the guidance of renowned Ayurveda experts -- include:

herbal remedies for hashimoto's thyroiditis

It is an autoimmune condition which is the common cause of hypothyroidism. In Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the body mounts an immune reaction against its own thyroid gland tissue, leading to inflammation of the gland (thyroiditis).

Antibody Test

  • This blood test tells whether the person has the antibodies that suggest Hashimoto’s disease.
  • More than 1 in 10 people have the antibodies but have the normal thyroid function.

Herbal Remedies for Dhat Syndrome - Causes, Symptoms & Treatment in Ayurveda

herbal remedies for dhat syndrome

Dhat syndrome refers to a ‘semen-loss’ related physical and psychological distress which is typically experienced by men in the Indian subcontinent region, including India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Dhat syndrome is also called 'Dhatu dosha,' because of the origin of the word 'Dhat' from the Sanskrit word 'Dhatu' which means 'elixir of the body.' The condition was first described by Dr Narendra Wig in the year 1960.

The men affected by Dhat syndrome suffer from premature ejaculation or impotence. They undergo pangs of anxiety and sexual dysfunction because of the belief that they are passing semen in urine, in the form of some whitish fluid or whitish particles.

The anxiety over the believed loss of semen -- either during urination, or through nocturnal emissions and masturbation -- results in a sense of depression in the affected individuals because the fear of semen loss is very strong in the Indian subcontinent.

Though Dhat syndrome is basically a culture-bound condition which generally affects young men from a rural background -- or of a lower socio-economic status -- in the Indian subcontinent, it may also, in some cases, affect the women of the region. In addition, it may also be prevalent in some other cultures across the world.

Although there is no known organic cause behind the occurrence of Dhat syndrome, the condition may be linked to some other post-orgasmic disorders, like postorgasmic illness syndrome (POIS) and post-coital tristesse (PCT).

DHAT SYNDROME: SYMPTOMS

Dhat syndrome is characteristically marked by anxiety, fatigue, sexual dysfunction, and some other vague psychosomatic symptoms, which are usually related to an anxious and dysphoric mood state.

Generally speaking, some of the common symptoms which are associated with Dhat syndrome include:

  • Premature ejaculation
  • Impotence
  • Weakness
  • Anxiety
  • Palpitations
  • Insomnia (sleeplessness)
  • Low mood or listlessness
  • Getting tired easily
  • Feeling of shortened penis
  • Loss of appetite
  • Poor concentration
  • Forgetfulness
  • Lack of physical strength
  • Guilt related to semen loss

DHAT SYNDROME: TREATMENT

The treatment of Dhat syndrome involves the use of anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications, as well as Cognitive behavioral therapy. The medications are chiefly aimed at relieving anxiety and stress related to the disorder, while therapy/counselling is aimed at reassurance and correction of wrong beliefs.

For the management of Dhat syndrome in a natural and effective manner, renowned Ayurveda experts at Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company have prepared some beneficial herbal products from 100% pure herbs. The herbal products, which can relieve the symptoms of Dhat syndrome, include:
