Talk on "Management of Anxiety" by Dr. Sanjeev Jain, Professor of Psychiatry, NIMHANS Held on Saturday, 27th February, 2010 at 6.30 pm

Bangalore International Centre had arranged a Talk on "Management of Anxiety" on Saturday, 27 th February, 2010 at 6.30 PM by Dr. Sanjeev Jain, Professor of Psychiatry, NIMHANS, Bangalore.
In a lucid analysis, inter-laced with wit and humour, Dr. Jain demystified the various facets of Anxiety Disorders, which have become more pronounced during the recent years. He said that according to a data-base, compiled in 1998 in USA, about 45.5million people in USA were victims of Anxiety Disorders of some form or the other, out of a total resident population of 143.3 million people in the age-group of 18-54 yrs. He clarified that in general in almost every country 10% of the adult population suffer from Anxiety Disorders; however, only one-third of those who suffer from it receive treatment. Anxiety Disorders are highly treatable in most of the cases.
Dr. Jain elaborated as to how certain factors like Inter-personal Threat, Mortality Fears, Fear of Animals and Agoraphobic Fears (associated with open/closed spaces, traveling alone) can induce anxiety in different individuals and explained how they impact on the brain which, in turn, causes several physical and mental discomforts. He dwelt at length on certain phenomenons like Panic Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Phobia and Generalised Anxiety Disorder and how genetics, brain bio-chemistry, stress etc act as causative agents in creating them. He listed the common medications available for treatment, but cautioned that they all have side-effects, like dizziness, headache, nausea and impaired memory. Behavioural and cognitive therapy have become widely popular in the treatment of such cases along with Psychotherapy. Dr. Jain also underscored the positive impacts of Meditation as a therapy and advocated a diet regime which could avoid prone-ness to anxiety. He listed Coffee, Alcohol, Sugar, Strong Spices, Highly Acidic Foods and Foods with White Flour as items which could best be avoided.
In a stimulating discussion that followed, Dr. Jain emphasized that Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress and does help to deal with a tense situation.
