    Hello everybody.

    i have beem performing martial arts in my early 20s for almost 5 years and i must say i have aquired a good sense of discipline and control and i even got better than i was befor in my teens.

    After some years from quitting i was 26 then now am 29 , i have started to experience some weird mental problems like for example uncontrolled nervosity and agressivity . So i started visiting doctors to deal with this and i finally in 2017 debuted a treatement program with a psychologist witch concluded that i have a schizoid-paranoid disorder .

    So i wonder what would a true martial artist do ? i mean with respect to traditional martial healing ?

    Follow the advice from a psychiatrist/psychologist. Even those who would be qualified to help, can't give you advice online, knowing almost nothing about your symptoms (and don't take that as a sign to share your symptoms-that is for an in-person discussion with a qualified professional).

    Martial arts are primarily about fighting. If I want to learn a fighting skill, I ask a martial artist.

    If I want help with mental issues, I talk to a doctor trained in psychology/psychiatry.

    A true martial artists would do what most people do. Listen to the medical professionals (aka your doctor) and keep training.

    Your doctor is going to have a better grasp on treatment so anything that out side of that would need to be discussed with your doctor. A doctor who is trained in mental conditions is going to have years of information, studying, and experience in trying to treat various types of mental conditions. That same doctor may also have access to resources (other patients) who are going through the same thing and it's possible that one of those Patients may have a solution that helps them and it may work for you, but only the doctor would know that.

    Martial Arts is Awesome, but it can't fix everything, nor is it the solution to everything.

  11. Specialists are incredibly important. More so than your general care Doctor's. Seek, listen and stay with the specialist that you personally trust.

    Using the right tools, is the bases of Martial Arts.
