Suicide Warning Signs

Experts at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention say there is no one single cause of suicide, as it stems from a complex mental health issue. However, depression is the most common condition associated with suicide. Loved ones should be aware of these warning signs:

· How they talk: A person may talk about suicide or having no reason to live. They can describe feelings of being trapped or like a burden to others.

· Behavior: Look for an increase in drug or alcohol use, whether the person is researching ways to kill himself, acting reckless, withdrawing and isolating himself, sleeping too much or too little or giving away possessions.

· Mood: A person considering suicide often displays one or more of the following moods: depression, loss of interest, rage, irritability, humiliation or anxiety.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
