54 year old patient, Mr. C. J. G. (Patient reference number L8057) reported to the clinic for complaints of feeling of uneasiness since 1 year. He would feel heaviness of the head at such times and his face would turn pale. Whenever he would get such episodes, his wife would find that his face had a very anxious look. He would also experience dryness of the mouth and an urging for stools at such times. His blood pressure was also found to be high on such occasions. His anxiety would be much worse when he would be in a warm climate and the symptoms would get better on moving into a cooler environment.
He was a loquacious individual and he spoke at length about the symptoms that he experienced. He was very anxious about issues related to his health. He remarked that he would be quite upset at these symptoms since he had always followed a very disciplined lifestyle. He said that throughout his life he had been very particular about his diet and regimen. He was so worried about his health that he had got himself extensively investigated inspite of the fact that his Cardiologist had said that it was not needed.
He described how he would unnecessarily get anxious at trifling matters at home or at work. One of his major worries was during the period when his daughter-in-law was pregnant and about to deliver. He said that inspite of the fact that there were many other ladies in the house to take care of her, he was extremely worried about her health and moved about in a panicky state. He had become short tempered off-late and would get angry easily but would not be able to express his anger. He was also very fastidious and would get upset if things were not placed in order or work not done perfectly as desired.
His was an average built and a normal appetite. He was very fond of sweets and had aversion to fried foods. He was sensitive to cold in general and would prefer to remain warm. His sleep would be quite disturbed and he would frequently wake up in between for no particular reason.
He stayed with his wife, son, daughter-in-law and grand-daughter. There was history of Asthma about 25 years ago which got cured after Ayurvedic treatment. His mother had hypertension and severe knee osteoarthritis
and his paternal uncle had died of Lung cancer. Apart from this there was no other significant family history.
Based on the history, he was prescribed a remedy that has been developed at Life Force for the treatment of Anxiety disorders. At the first follow up after 1 month of treatment, there was no major change in his state. The medication was stepped up in potency. Another 4 weeks he reported that he was feeling about 50% better in his complaints. His face also looked visibly relaxed and he was not appearing as tensed as he would usually do. However, he expressed his concerns about the upcoming summer season which would worsen his complaints significantly. He was counseled about his complaints this time and was told to report to us anytime in case he faced problems due to the heat. To his own surprise, he described at the next follow-up that his complaints did not surface again as he had anticipated. He also added that there had been a couple of stressful instances that he had come across but he did not get as woked up as before. His complaints of uneasiness of head had reduced substantially and his blood pressure also remained normal on all his follow-ups. He remained asymptomatic for the next few weeks and his treatment was thereafter concluded; he was asked to report to us in case he faced any problem anytime in future.
