Dear lybrate user. You are misunderstanding. Ayurvedic medicines also has its own side effects. More over for depression, there is no direct ayurvedic medicines. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

You have not mentioned the reason for feeling stressful. With the information provided by you, I would suggest at this time to do Yoga or exercise which would help in relaxing the muscles and help in reducing stress. This should help, but incase not much improvement, then would suggest you to go in for medicines after consulting a psychiatrist.

You are going through anxiety and panic attacks. If it's not taken a deep root within your system then you can benefit from counselling. It will teach you ways to respond in which you remain in control of yourself and different and safer ways to show your displeasure to others. But if the problem is deep seated and chronic, you can need psychiatric treatment additionally. But you must start exercises and yoga daily basis, with pranayam and meditation.

Please gracefully accept the fact that you are no longer a contender for the post of his wife. You tried your best to convince him and he did not budge. That is not your or his fault. Circumstances are to blame and there is no use blaming circumstances. Concentrate on your education and career. Take care.

Homosexuality is a result of mutation of a gene called fruuit fly. You have got to accept what you are. There is no way you can change your sexual preference, you cannot force yourself to get attracted to females. You will be inviting life-long conflict if you force anything upon yourself or try to be what you are not if you are born with this orientation, you will only be attracted physically to guys. Know that and accept it!

Hello..... Masturbation does not affect eye sight... Eye sight affects due to late night studying, nutritional deficiency, wrong sitting position during studying....... Firstly eat healthy diet including all green leafy veges and fresh fruits....... Vitamin C rich fruits are good..... Carrots are very good for eyes.. Eat them in salad or as juice....... Do exercises for increasing eye sight...... During studying sit straight and also read in full light..... These will help you to improve eye sight.... For more advice you can consult me..... Good luck...

We took her to religious scholar she was recovering but suddenly she is like jerking her body and starts vibrating her legs and arms. We took her to psychiatrists but of no use.

Dear lybrate user, if appears that this lady does not have any physical ailment. The psychiatric medicines have not helped much. In such situation it is very important to understand the motive behind her behaviour. It might be" attention seeking personality disorder" in which the person tries very hard to seek attention from others, at any cost. There are a number of reasons why the person needs this attention so desperately. To know more about all this, take her to a counsellor. The counsellor might be able to understand her behaviour after talking to her. I think she will need counselling along with some medicines. Take her to the counsellor, who can start her therapy. You may have to consult a psychiatrist again for medicines because a counsellor cannot prescribe medicines. The counsellor and the psychiatrist will work together to help this lady. All the best.

I want to quit smoking I'm trying but it doesn't works please give me some suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.
