Stress

The word stress, has many connotations and can imply a range of circumstances from ordinary workplace or familial dissonance to serious mental disturbance. Crucially, what starts off as a minimal disturbance in one sphere of activity can have significant ramifications that affect many life spheres, if left unattended.
While a range of reasons may be held responsible, central to all manner of stress genesis is “the yawning gap between expectations and reality”. Modern lives have spiralled unthinkingly into a vortex of unremitting desire, relentless aspiration, pursuit of material gain, needless and thoughtless consumption, transient and elusive fulfilment, and unfettered hedonism. Stress is a natural accompaniment, a constant companion, as new desires replace the old, and the gap between expectation and reality remains constant, if not ever-widening.

“If you ask me what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say its avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I will still have to say it”
George Burns (American Comedian).

TRIMED centres with their relaxed ambience are designed to de-stress. Using a combination of yoga, progressive muscle relaxation exercises, Ayurvedic and Naturopathic interventions we make significant impact on the most severely affected individuals. Using this as a base we are able to engage in intensive and incisive client centred psychological therapy, drawing upon a range of eclectic techniques - cognitive-behavioural therapy being a prime focus. As allopathic medicine is at our fountainhead, TRIMED centres also employ in an optimal way, stress relieving medication. This holistic approach has transformed the lives of several hundred individuals with various stress related conditions.

31 year old Mr. R came to us with complaints of discomfort in breathing, lack of concentration and motivation, anxiety, nightmares, ruminating thoughts, and dryness of mouth for the past 5-6 months. He holds a very senior position in an MNC. He had been consulting with several doctors including renowned specialists and no medical reason for his complaint had been found.
He underwent a comprehensive multidisciplinary assessment, a hallmark of Trimed, which helped us unearth multidomain problems including several psychosomatic features – highly suggestive of severe stress and anxiety due to stressors at the work place and at home. Based on the assessment inputs, we customized a 14 day Integrative Stress Management Program. This included relaxing and rejuvenating Ayurveda therapies, muscle relaxation and muscle strengthening exercises as part of physical therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy( CBT), counseling regarding lifestyle modifications, relaxation exercises and yoga asanas along with pranayama and meditation techniques. At the end of the treatment program this patient had improved significantly with respect to his somatic symptoms, behavioural issues and sleep. He had developed immense self confidence, was able to function effectively in his highly pressured work environment, had more conducive interactions with family members and felt he had recovered fully. He remains symptom free and highly appreciative of the Integrated treatment program that Trimed offered to him.>
ost TRIMED pain management programs' integrate Ayurveda, Physiotherapy, Acupressure, Yoga and Jacobson's Progressive Muscle Relaxation exercises. TRIMED centres will soon offer a Naturopathy and Hydrotherapy alternative to pain management.
