I want to stop masturbation .It cause any health problem? I cannot study well also.
It's a myth propogated by some quacks under the name of Ayurveda/naturopathic treatment that masturbation is harmful to health on the contrary, masturbation is a safety valve to let go of sexual urges & feeling if done once a day, masturbation is absolutely safe & in fact it makes your penis stronger. Think over it.

Sleepwalking - Is There A Way To Manage It?

Sleepwalking - Is There A Way To Manage It?

Sleep walking is a sleep related disorder that affects many individuals globally. It causes people to get up and start walking even when they are in a deep state of sleep. This condition happens when the patient is going through a state of deep sleep to light sleep, before actually awaking. In most cases, the patients are not aware of their actions and may find themselves in another room or part of the house when they wake up. While this condition usually happens for children between the ages of four to eight, it may even happen for certain adults. Here is everything you need to know about sleep walking from the reasons that cause it, to the ways in which it may be treated.

General causes of sleepwalking: Sleepwalking may be caused by sudden stress or a chaotic sleep pattern. In such cases, it may last only a few weeks and may even come with other symptoms like bedwetting. This is most commonly seen in children. It is also a genetically inherited disorder that can affect people whose parents or siblings have suffered from the same.

Also, if you have a sleep deprivation problem and experience trouble when it comes to falling asleep, then this condition may set in. Many people also walk in their sleep when they are drunk or are known to regularly get drunk. Excessive alcohol consumption may also lead to such sleep disorders. Also, if the patient is taking sedatives that are hypnotic in nature, then they may experience such symptoms as sleep walking.

Medical conditions: There are also a number of medical conditions that may cause this condition. To begin with, sleepwalking may arise as a symptom of heartburn and fever. Also, patients who are suffering from an irregular heartbeat or heart rhythm may end up walking in their sleep. Restless leg syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, night time seizures and asthma may also cause this condition. Other psychiatric disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks and multiple personality disorder can also cause symptoms such as sleep walking.

Treatment: The method of treatment is usually based on the genetic, environmental or physiological reasons that are behind the actual disorder. While changing the medicines and treating the actual ailment that causes sleep walking as a symptom may be recommended by most doctors, one may also have to undergo therapy. This therapy will help in reaching the root cause of the sleepwalking disorder in case it is a chronic problem that has nothing to do with any other ailment or disease. The doctor may also look for signs of nocturnal seizures and confusion arousal in order to treat the same with proper therapy and medication.

Are there any de-addiction centers in Pune that treat a patient at a nominal cost? It's for smoking and drinking. Also, do you suggest consulting a good psychiatrist or approaching a rehab directly?

There are No 'Tricks' to cure depression. Depression is a brain illness & you need to take medicines to help yourself But, for starters, Stop smoking weed as its known to cause neurotransmitter imbalance & worsen any mental illness. You can also do 30 minutes daily Zumba to promote endorphin release in brain to help you feel better.

You should stick to recita forte only & ask your doctor to make appropriate dosage adjustment to help you get better. Recita forte contains Escitalopram + Clonazepam combination of which, Escitalopram is a very good antidepressant. You can get better on plain escitalopram alone with some dosage adjustment. No need of any other supplements.

De-Addiction - How It Can Be Achieved?

De-Addiction - How It Can Be Achieved?

Addiction is the absolute dependency on a particular substance or situation. Substance addiction includes a variety of substances apart from alcohol and drugs. Examples include porn, food, chocolate, nicotine, etc. Situation addiction includes gambling, shopping and sex among others. The problem in our society with addiction is it is treated like a choice than as a major problem faced by an individual. De-addiction is the process of ridding the individual of his dependence on certain substances or activities.

Process

  1. Rehabilitation psychology studies the process of de-addiction and helps addicts blend with the normal lifestyle. Rehab centers offer several forms of therapy to reduce substance usage.
  2. Group therapy is always the go to form of therapeutic technique to deal with cases of addiction owing to the common feeling among users that people who aren’t addicted and do not know what they’re going through. In those cases, it is rather important to have support from a group of people who are exactly where they are.
  3. Family therapy is also essential to make the individual know how their loved ones feel and also remind them of the unconditional support. Some rehab centers also use the horse therapy (focuses on interaction with horses which facilitates emotional and occupational development in patients) which is rather interesting to witness.
  4. In addition to therapy, rehab centers teach life skills and cooperation. Apart from all this, drugs are also prescribed to deal with addiction along with the weekly scheduled personal therapy sessions.

Although an unfamiliar concept in India, halfway homes are the next step after the rehab. The individuals learn different skills and ways to manage themselves outside the house while still continuing their therapy. This is done to make sure one doesn’t relapse right after the rehabilitation has been completed. Most rehabs also suggest support group meetings. Even otherwise support groups are extremely effective in the de-addiction process. ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’ and ‘Narcotics Anonymous’ are two of the most widely managed support groups around the world.

Addiction is an immense issue which has spiraled out of control in today’s times. However, it is necessary to understand it isn’t the question of the individual’s morality. The removal of labels and stigma is essential in the entire process. Support from loved ones is an extremely important step towards de-addiction, right after the acceptance that one is addicted. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

डिप्रेशन/नैराश्य एक सायलेंट किलर (मराठी)

डिप्रेशन किंवा नैराश्य हा एक गंभीर मानसिक आजार आहे। भारतात दर 4 मागे 1 व्यक्ती या आजाराच्या लक्षणांनी पिडित आहे (संदर्भ: who संकेतस्थळ) 
डिप्रेशन नी पीडित व्यक्ती बहुतांश वेळा चिडचिडेपणा, झोपेच्या समस्या, थकवा, विसारभोळेपणा, सतत राहणाऱ्या पाचन समस्या इत्यादींनी ग्रस्त होते। त्यामुळे अशा व्यक्तीचा प्रथम संपर्क हा फॅमिली डॉक्टर, जनरल फिजिशियन डॉक्टर यांच्याशी होतो। 
जर आपल्याला डिप्रेशन विकाराची वरील पैकी कोणतीही लक्षणे जाणवत असतील किंवा वारंवार डॉक्टर कडे जाऊन, वेगवेगळ्या तपासण्या करून सुद्धा समाधानकारक रोगनिदान होत नसेल, तर आपल्या डॉक्टर ला जरूर हे विचारा'मला मानसोपचार तज्ञा कडे जायची गरज आहे का? तुम्ही मला मानसिक आरोग्य समस्येची औषधे स्वतः देत आहात का' 
जागृती ही रोगमुक्त होण्याची पहिली पायरी आहे! 
तुमचा हक्क, तुमचा मानसोपचार तज्ञ!
