There are various types of schizophrenia. There is the paranoid type characterized by delusions and hallucinations that are audio though they function normally in terms of their intellectual presentation. On the contrary, there is the catatonic type characterized by disorder in movement of a person. Contrary to the paranoid type the intellectual judgment of such a person is affected. Those who are suffering from the catatonic type are incapable of taking care of themselves as opposed to those who suffer from the paranoid type.
The symptoms of these types of schizophrenia are negative since they could lead to self destructive acts. Those suffering from paranoid type may exhibit anger to the extreme and anxiety that tampers with their reasoning. Those suffering from the catatonic type may stay immobile for a long time without doing anything. They could also repeatedly do the same thing over and over again that may be putting them at risk. Anyone may get the condition, but those who are from a lineage with a history of the disease are at a higher risk of getting the condition.
Alcoholism is a condition that is common in the current world. However, one cannot clearly explain the causes and the course to alcoholism in a definite manner. Theorists suggest that features such as depression, anxiety, peer pressure, personality disorders, psychological as well as heredity as some of the reasons as to why individuals may turn to alcoholism. Too much alcohol lessens a person’s muscle control and coordination and may also lead to slurred speech. At the same time, withdrawal from it may bring anxiety, irregularity in a heart beat, hallucinations and tremors. The drug can also cause heart enlargement in its users, liver failure as well as cancer of the stomach and the esophagus.
Use of treatment can help alcoholics to transform and stop using the drug and effectively pick up their lives. Medication and behavioral therapy especially if combined are fundamental aspects of the process of treating such patients. The therapeutic process begins with detoxification, then treatment and relapse prevention. The lessening of withdrawal symptoms is necessary so as to be able to initiate the process while prevention of relapse is also essential in the maintaining the process. The family based hold up systems can also be crucial for this process of healing.
I agree with the video especially on the fact that the patient needs to feel that they are supported in the whole procedure. In addition, it is essential that they identify the problem on their own although it may be hard for such patients to acknowledge having a problem. It is, therefore, more effective to heal an individual who sought help by themselves as opposed to those who sent or force into it.
The sensory system includes seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smell. The sensory system is crucial in the sense that it is responsible for assembling of information from the environment around us. It is this information gathers initiates sensory processing. Sensory processing is how the brain registers, interprets and uses such information. The system is, therefore, instrumental for the survival of any creature. It enables a person to perceive and understand undesirable conditions that could end up being detrimental and, therefore, avoid them. All the sensory organs are vital in their own way and so it is impossible to tell which organ is more urgent than the other. It is their functioning as a unit that ensures that the body of functions properly.
According to a research done by NHS in 2011, the first step towards the treatment of insomnia is al to ascertain whether the issue is caused by an underlying medical condition or not. They found out that in as much as it s treatable through practicing exemplary sleeping hygiene as commonly advised, there is a need to look into other alternatives. This is because there is minimal evidence pointing at the fact that acupuncture is efficient at treating insomnia just as is the case with hypo therapy. The researchers suggest that more emphasis be put on herbal solutions such as chamomile and passionflower that have proven to have positive effects. It is, however, unfortunate that they have not yet had a clinical test and so, their effectiveness and long term security are not yet ascertained.
