Observance of day and diet regimen
Long-term treatment of schizophrenia at home is possible only if the prescriber's medical prescriptions and certain conditions of the day regimen are observed. Specialists from official medicine and folk healers recommend:
- Continuously ventilate the room in which the patient is sleeping, and sleep with an open window, regardless of the weather conditions - this contributes to a greater intake of oxygen into the body.
- Every day to go for a walk, in the heat, you must wear a hat.
- Ensure maximum restriction of negative emotions.This applies to books, films, music, communication with unpleasant people.
- Avoid wearing synthetic fabrics, it is better to choose clothes from natural materials.This limitation is associated with possible irritation of the skin, the occurrence of itching and burning - this can provoke irritation and an attack of hysteria or aggression.
Treatment of schizophrenia at home is also regular physical activity.It does not have to be professional sport - even the simplest morning run will help get rid of hallucinations( with their non-intensive manifestation), fear and anxiety.Very good help to prolong the period of remission and water procedures - for example, dousing with cold water or a contrast shower.In general, it is recommended to establish a certain order of the day and clearly adhere to it. For example, this will be an excellent option:
- 5-7 o'clock in the morning - lifting, charging, water procedures( contrast shower or douche, hygienic procedures), personal / community affairs;
- 12-14 hours - lunch, the implementation of current affairs;
- 17-18 - dinner, personal time;
- 21-00 - water procedures;
- 23-00 - maximum time for night rest.
First, it will be difficult for a patient to adhere to such a strict schedule, especially if the symptoms of schizophrenia appear in adulthood.But over time, this mode will become familiar and its execution will occur automatically, without any reminders.
Note : The specified mode of the day is very approximate and needs correction for each patient.For example, if you need to supplement it with one more meal, you can make a snack or a second breakfast.It is important to go to sleep at the same time at the same time, and not vary depending on the desire to watch another movie or finish the book, finish the work.
The prescription for the treatment of schizophrenia from Tibetan monks
There is another method of treating schizophrenia in the home, which "got" to the public from Tibetan monks.To do this, pour into a large vessel( preferably clay) olive oil and bury it in the ground for 12 months.After this time, the oil is taken and used as a grinder.They lubricate the entire body of the patient, but special attention should be paid to the shoulder girdle of the back, neck and head - no need to regret these zones.Treatment schedule: two days in a row the procedure is carried out, then a break for 2 days, a long course is 60 days.Then you need to take a break for a month and you can again continue the course of rubbing with infused olive oil according to the scheme.Such two-month courses can be any number.
When using the method of treating schizophrenia from Tibetan monks, it is important that during trituration there is a calm situation, the patient nothing distracted or annoyed.Each procedure should last at least half an hour and be carried out smooth circular, rubbing and slightly kneading movements.Take water procedures with such treatment is possible only in those days when grinding olive oil is not carried out.
Despite the seeming contradiction, even in the phrase "treating schizophrenia at home", do not disparage the above methods.Yes, they are not suitable for those patients who have a severe form of schizophrenia, but in most cases, patients at home are able to carry out maintenance therapy, apply methods of alternative medicine, thereby providing a long-term remission of the disease.
