I always remain in tension. My brain is always restless. Pls suggest something. I am going to b mad.
DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things …. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal…4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits …. 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) eat 5 gm of ajwain seeds along with 5 gm of jaggery after meals. B) take 60 ml of trifala juice along with 20 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

I am 21 years old male. I am suffering from stammering. This hurt me too much when I sit in friends group, talk to a person. Kindly tell me sir what should I do.

You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can.

Dear lybrate-user, hbsag is the surface antigen for hepatitis b virus. Let me be very clear on this hepatitis b is a type of virus which affects the liver. In many cases it gets cured on its own but still the hbsag remains in the blood stream, you can check other antigens like hbcag etc or do a pcr for hepatis b virus which will let you know the actual concentration of the virus in the system. Having said so many patients remain asymptomatic post hepatitis b acute infection, the surface antigen in the blood keeps them as carrier. Please report what other symptoms your wife is having, especially does she have jaundice i. E. Yellow coloration of eyes, skin etc or any other symptom. Also share the other blood reports. Do not worry, every thing will be fine.

I have delayed arousal issues. Visual arousal does not happen. I need talk accompanied by manual stimulation to get hard. Why would this happen. Why can I not get aroused by seeing my naked partner or even fully clothed kissing. Is it a mental command issue.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
This not a concern as you are aroused anyway. You cahange the pllace where you mak sex or adjust light and surroundings. Keep me posted after you try. After may years of being together, visual arousal may not always come. By touching and kissing and by physical stimulation you can get. Ask privately I can guide you.

Marijuana'may' interfere with the anesthesia. If you are undergoing surgery under g then two weeks should be more than fine. There is no concrete study on this, many believe since it has no drug interaction, 2 days prior to surgery is fine. Coughing if any caused by it may cause some problem. Lastly tobacco with nicotine which is mixed in the joint to smoke causes vasoconstriction, with decreased oxygen flow to tissues, which may impair healing, tobacco may cause little more bleeding too because of its vasoconstriction effect.

Which is the best thing to increase anxiety while studying to recall & revise fast and if one avoid sugar completely should he take caffeine in place of it or sugar is necessary.

Which is the best thing to increase anxiety while studying to recall & revise fast and if one avoid sugar completely ...
Mr. Lybrate-user, best method for increasing memory is to learn a technique of visualisation, where you visulise the page or paragraph that has been read or studied, that is create a mental picture in front of your closed eyes, and memorise it. There is a book written by one Mr. Silva - silva mind control techniques/ or methods. Search for it and follow. That should help. Caffeine increases alertness for a few minutes to an hour or two. But it is followed by a feeling of dullness. Repeated use is not advised. Thanks for the question.

I am addict of Alcohol. Now I want quit this. My age is 36, weight is 72. Daily capacity 2 beer. Please advice any effective medicine.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with your wife and the children and whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast.

40 years old lady and married. She have a child boy 15 years old. He studying in 10 standard. Problem is that my cousin sleep along vd husband and son on one bed. She mostly sleep with son. And always doing tight hug. She never doing gap with his boy. She take bath in front of him even change Clothes in front of his boy. And mostly touch private part also. We are doing objection many time but she said that he is his only boy and she loves him so much. And she is right. We are unable to understand her situation. please suggest us.

No, this is not only unacceptable but it is bad for the child. Nudity in front of a grown up child and in his teens is very impressionable. She may be reluctant to break the symbiosis and it has been stretched far beyond its recommended term. He may, therefore, not grow up at the pace he should and will be a very dependent child, as he grows up further. Sleeping with the parents and physically holding in the manner you describe are all indicative of molly-codling beyond his years. Some elder person from her family can either dissuade her or she can be taken for parenting consultation to a professional. That person will explain to her the ramifications of such behavior, especially for the development of the child. Loving a child is one thing but this kind is overdone and we refer to it as'smothering and not mothering' as a boy, his concept of sexuality and manhood will all become contaminated.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You are right that living an aimless life is depressing and disheartening. This is the exact reason that needs to be sorted out and the reason for living will emerge strongly. This can be discovered easily through some career counseling. Why think of death when you have not done your homework! Many youngsters are in this boat, sometimes living the parents? dreams out. Now there are very good tests to determine your aptitude, your strengths, skills, and the courses to take to fulfill them. Life without vision is like life without sight. Apart from the tests, throw yourself into various activities to see where the best comes out of you and that will be a good indication to locate your likes and strengths, and then pursue them passionately. You have just gone about it in a wrong manner. This guidance I have given you could change your life forever. Let me know what you discover in the tests.

Dear lybrate user. If the girl in question is from a good and sound family, and if they are reasonably cultured, your parents are bound to agree after some fuss and cry. Tell them boldly. Make them understand that you are serious. Take care.

Hi this is Arif, I am 22 years old. I started smoking recently from the last past 2 years. And I regularly smoke approx 20 cigarettes a day. I feel their might be some problem with my lung and I want to make sure if everything is alright and if not then I will quit this habit right away. So I was planning to take some test that might tell me how my lungs are. So wanted some advice what to door for which test should I go forward with. Thank and Regards Arif Khan.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You should not wait to have a problem with your lungs before quitting. You are already smoking too much for a 22-year old. You need to visit a pulmonologist to check your lungs, immediately. You may check these lung cancer signs to know something as a layman: Lung Cancer Signs and Symptoms (Sourced from Medicinenet. Com) Lung cancer is the most common cancer in men and the fifth most common in women, even causing more cancer-related deaths in women than breast cancer. The incidence of lung cancer is strongly correlated with cigarette smoking, with about 90% of lung cancers arising as a result of tobacco use. Symptoms of lung cancer are varied dependent upon the exact location of the tumor and the extent of its spread. A person with lung cancer may have the following kinds of symptoms: •No symptoms - Up to 25% of people who get lung cancer do not have any symptoms when the cancer is found. In these cases the cancer is first discovered on a routine chest X-ray or computerized tomography (CT) scan performed for another reason. •Symptoms related to the cancer - The growth of the cancer and invasion of the lung and surroundings may lead to symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest pain, and coughing up blood (hemoptysis). If the cancer has invaded nerves, it may cause shoulder pain that travels down the outside of the arm (called Pancoast syndrome) or paralysis of the nerves traveling to the vocal cords that leads to hoarseness. Invasion of the esophagus may lead to difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). If a large airway is obstructed, collapse of a portion of the lung may occur and cause infections (abscesses, pneumonia) in the obstructed area. •Symptoms related to metastasis (spread to other organs) - Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce excruciating pain at the sites of bone involvement. Cancer that has spread to the brain may cause a number of neurologic symptoms that may include blurred vision, headaches, seizures, confusion or altered thought processes, or symptoms of stroke. •Paraneoplastic symptoms - Lung cancers frequently are accompanied by so-called paraneoplastic syndromes that result from production of hormone-like substances by the tumor cells that are released into the blood. A common paraneoplastic syndrome associated with one type of lung cancer is the production of a hormone called adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) by the cancer cells, leading to over secretion of another hormone, cortisol, by the adrenal glands (Cushing's syndrome). •Nonspecific symptoms - Nonspecific symptoms seen with many cancers, including lung cancers, include weight loss, weakness, and fatigue. It is important always to consult a doctor if a person develops the symptoms associated with lung cancer, in particular: •A new persistent cough or worsening of an existing chronic cough •Blood in the sputum •Persistent bronchitis or repeated respiratory infections •Chest pain •Unexplained weight loss and/or fatigue •Breathing difficulties such as shortness of breath or wheezing.

I am 23 years old male, I admire a girl so much I want her to be my sister because I believe her influence can change my life, the problem is I can't tell her because I fear she might refuse, and I am also afraid to approach her often because she might think I'm sticky, and she doesn't respond to such people and I'm already getting this signal of her ignoring me, because whenever I ask her anything (on Facebook) it takes her more than 24 hrs to reply, she never did this with anyone else. This thing is making me sad.

If the thoughts of career goals and achievment predominate your thoughts and behaviours, since you are only 23, you will get every thing you need for a happy life including an intimate relationship. Otherwise, you will loose both the present and future, if you keep engaging in these activities like. Deep dive into your career life. All the best.

Dear Puja, i am not sure that Gaurav is suffering from clinical depression. Depression may be a part of some other neurological illness. Probably that is why Cognistar was prescribed. Find out his diagnosis clearly. Any drug has to be weighed for its benefit vs harm. There is no drug which is absolutely safe. So will be Cognistar.
