Interpersonal therapy treatment for depression

Treating depression naturally should always been the first preference. This is primarily due to the fact that there are side effects and addictive properties associated with most medications that are used for treating depression. Cognitive behavioral therapy, as different from the traditional ‘talking therapy’ has been established as being the most effective among the recent natural remedies for depression.

Interpersonal therapy can be considered as an offshoot of cognitive behavioral therapy. This is because most of the techniques that are used in interpersonal therapy are modifications of the intervention methods that have been used extensively in cognitive behavioral therapy.

Cognitive therapy emphasizes on the internal mental processes. In conjunction with behavioral therapy it focuses on how people think about themselves. Interpersonal therapy (IPT) is a short but highly focused form of treatment that addresses the problems related to social functioning in patients suffering from depression.

Interpersonal therapy can help significantly in certain specific areas.

* Interpersonal disputes that can arise from distress and difference in conceptualization of situations.
* Grief, as in loss due to death.
* Transitions of roles at critical junctures in life like retirement, childbirth and aging.
* Interpersonal deficits or the inability to build relationships.

Are You SAD ? Help for Your Seasonal Affective Disorder

While autumn can be a beautiful and anticipated time of year for some, for many it can be somewhat melancholy, bringing about a change in mood as the season shifts. As daylight hours shorten, as many as 1 in 3 Americans notice increased feelings of lethargy and sadness, as well as a decreased number of bright and happy thoughts, as if their emotions are echoing the change in seasons.

This common condition, known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, is a type of depression brought about by the change in seasons. Although anyone can be affected regardless of age, gender or location, SAD generally tends to be more prevalent in populations that live in more northern regions, where the changes in seasons are more drastic and noticeable.

While there are some cases in which SAD occurs during the transition period between winter and spring, it is most commonly experienced during the shift from summer into the colder seasons. Usually, symptoms of the disorder begin to set in around October or November, and last through the winter months until the weather begins to improve during April or May.

What causes interstitial cystitis, recommended diet, and cure

Interstitial cystitis is a urinary bladder disease, the cause of which is unknown to the science fraternity. However, several theories do exist which point towards it being an autoimmune, allergic, neurological, and/or genetic disease. What has definitely been established by various studies and research is that the quality of life for patients of interstitial cystitis compares to that of the end stage of renal failure. Regardless of the origin, interstitial cystitis leads to a damage of the bladder lining and also inhibits bladder cell proliferation, which in turn, have dangerous consequences.

Interstitial cystitis is characterized by frequent urination of as often as every ten minutes, urgency, and pain in the bladder or supra-pelvis region. Pain usually increases and decreases as the bladder fills up and empties and in some cases, even while urinating. Interstitial cystitis causes pelvic floor dysfunction making it difficult for patients to start their urine stream. Excessive urination at night, pain with sexual intercourse, difficulty in driving, traveling or working adds to the agony.

Some of the symptoms of interstitial cystitis can easily be mistaken for symptoms of other UTI often leading to a misdirected strategy of urinary tract infection cure.

The Art of Poultices

Herbal poultices were relied on in our grandparent�s day to ward off more life threatening afflictions like pleurisy, bronchitis and pneumonia. An old stand-by was the mustard poultice which was thought to “burn out” a pulmonary infection.

The 1867 British Pharmacopoeia lists the instructions for making a Cataplasm sinapsis or poultice. Two and a half ounces of powdered linseed (flax seed) is mixed with two and a half ounces of powdered mustard and hot water is added to make a paste. Put the linseed, into a coffee grinder for a minute to bruise the seed sufficiently to improve its drawing qualities.

Mustard can be obtained at the grocery store where it is still sold in little tin boxes. This mixture is then applied to a clean cotton cloth and placed face down on the chest over the lung and bronchial area. Do not leave it on the skin too long. Three to five minutes is enough for the first treatment. Make sure that all mustard is washed off. Keep the patient warm during the whole process.

Between poultices, oil of eucalyptus can be massaged on the chest, helping to disinfect the lungs. Yarrow, elderflower and peppermint tea breaks up catarrhal congestion.

What Is Homeopathy?

An introduction by Bernie Simon

Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine that was founded in the early 19th century by a German physician, Dr. Hahnemann. It had its greatest popularity in the late 19th century here in the United States, when 15% of the doctors in this country were homeopaths. However, with the advent of modern medicine, homeopathy began to look old and stodgy and its popularity took a nosedive. However, since 1980 homeopathy has seen a resurgence of interest in the United States and the U.K.; homeopathic books can be found in many bookstores and homeopathic physicians in most towns and cities.

Classical homeopathy rests on three principles: the law of similars, the single medicine, and the minimum dose. The law of similars states that a disease is cured by a medicine which creates symptoms similar to those the patient is experiencing in a healthy person. Hence an important part of the prescription of a homeopathic medicine is a lengthy interview to determine all the symptoms the patient is experiencing. The homeopathic physician then determines which medicine best matches the symptoms that the patient is experiencing and prescribes it.
