Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress. Important aspects of your query are: • 21 year old female • Left studies 4 years back. • Complaints of: Not doing anything except TV watching, locking herself in room and poor self care. • No response to reki From the history there is chances of having psychosis in your sister. In psychosis patient may have some of the following symptoms: -Suspiciousness or fearfulness: That may be the reason she kept herself locked. -Loss of contact with reality and living in imaginary world. -Talking or laughing to self -Lack of self care. -Lack of insight: Deny to have any problem. Usually these patient do not respond to ayurvedic, homeopathic and other therapies (yoga/reki). She need evaluation by psychiatrist to confirm diagnosis. Primary mode of treatment in such cases is treatment with antipsychotic medicines and patients show significant response after treatment. She had already lost her precious 4 years in-spite of having good treatment for such cases. So take first and show her to nearby psychiatrist. If you can come in Gurgaon, you can meet me with her. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups. Wish you good health. Regards,
