Dear lybrate-user, bitting yourself up for your exam will not help you. Try to forgive yourself for not having done a good job this time and focus on doing better next time. Focus on what you can do better and not the past! all the best, mz.

Feeling bad & nervous. Want to be happy always. Want to get out of anger stress & depression.
Stress is part of our life. We need to think how we are looking at it. Stress is like string instrument, if string is too tight or even too loose then music is not played well. But is its in proper tension ot plays wonderful music. Same our day to day stressful events. It is important how much we get stressed because of them. If too much stressed then it results into anxiety depression and anger. Then we wait for the situation to get better. But all we needto do is relax ourself first and look at situation carefully, believe in our ability to handle them, remember when similar things happened in past and we did them successfully. It is our belief in our self that keeps us going. Also learning self hypnosis and mindfulness meditations help us keep calm and handle such situations in a better way. Do mindfulness breathing exercises 4times a day. Write your positive achievements everyday to boost your confidence. Engage in hobby. Look out for and cherish happy moments. Remember we are not always stressed. No two moments are same. Warm regards

Dear lybrate-user, smoking causes health and sex related bad issues. Stopping smoking is a good decision to take. If you continue to motivate yourself not to smoke you will be able to maintain it for a long time. If you succeed to keep off from cigarettes for 1 year, your chances of restarting is much less. Try and connect the quit day to significant day of your life like birthday. Make goals for only one week at a time and find out the situations or persons who will help you or interfere with your goal and record the result as %age every week. If results are good, treat yourself with something you always wanted. If you have withdrawal symptoms, (you are likely to have since you are a chain smoker) get back online private consultation with me. I can help you with nicotine replacement, bupropion or varenicline along with other home remedies like clove.

Hi. Doctor. I am a engineering student. I am very week in study. I am looking some brain booster pills. Can I use maxgalin 150. Or any other pills can you help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
This medication is an anticonvulsant and neuropathic pain agent, prescribed for partial seizures; management of postherpetic neuralgia (nerve pain caused by the varicella zoster virus); management of fibromyalgia (a condition where the patient has muscle and connective tissue pain). If you are weak in studies it may be lack of concentration or personal disturbances. Medicine may not help much. Still some safe mind booster (as they claim) can be tried. You need to be in touch with me privately is better.

You should meet with a counselor and get some help with your emotions and how to deal with them. For your sleep problem please follow the recommendations mentioned below: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

A medical doctor will perhaps answer your problem regarding meningitis. I am going to touch on an emotional angle to all the problems you have mentioned. Her headaches, depression and fever have a strong basis originating from unexpressed anger. I am also aware that these can be caused by meningitis too but as mentioned I am showing an emotional perspective to it. It is therefore interesting that you do mention that she has a problem with getting easily angry and does get into depression, which is also anger related in my opinion. So apart from following the medical approach, do meet with a counselor and discuss her anger issues and where it has originated from. Perhaps there may be some information from her past either from her parents or from her own knowledge. It could be quite deep rooted and therapy must delve deeply too to get to the bottom of this residual anger until it is expressed, appropriately. The anger may be such that she may not feel like expressing it and therefore she has chosen to keep it under wraps. Any feeling that is suppressed will find a way of expressing itself internally and causing a lot of distress including headaches, fever, and depression. It may be useful to read a book by an author called Louise L. Hay, entitled, ?You can heal your life? to understand how emotions that have not been dealt with can disturb your life, and also how to go about healing the same.

sex ki baat achi hi. lekin koyi karti hai toh gussa as jata hai. words it is not painful. it is not harmful to body. but practically we do it it is very painful. unable to control our anger in your age. initially everybody feel painful. later they will enjoy it. in opinion better to enjoy with words. do not go practically. when you marry then go for safer sex. any work in compulsory situation we do it it has some meaning. for entertainment we do it leads some problems. if not marry it is better to avoid to these type of thoughts.better to enjoy with words of sexual talk. do not participate in practical aspects. one more thing is if you do one time it is not possible to stop yourself. you want some more experiments. so it is better to stop thinking and using this type of thoughts. practically it is lot of painful and guilty feelings, lose of self confidence, lack of interest on other aspects also. so in this age. it is better to concentrate on your studies. if time comes you will know the experience. up to that wait. dont think and dont go practical aspects. dont be alone and dont think too much about sex. be share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. be sociable all the time and be happy.ok all the best.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Top 4 Alternative Therapies for Stress and Anxiety

MD - Alternative Medicine
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
Top 4 Alternative Therapies for Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety are often repeated terms that people use frequently when they are faced with an overwhelming situation. Yet, these are also clinical terms that can refer to hormonal imbalances which can cause despair, panic, hopelessness, depression and other such emotionally and mentally debilitating problems. Apart from the conventional methods of drugs for symptomatic treatment and counselling or therapy, one can make use of several alternative treatment methods to bring down the stress and anxiety levels significantly. 

Here are the top four ways of treating the same:

  1. Meditation: Transcendental and other forms of guided and unguided meditation can go a long way in realigning yourself with your inner resources so as to create a more congenial environment as you go about doing your daily activities. With meditation, you can focus on your breath or a certain point or you can choose to listen to guided medication which will take you through a scene and help you relax. Soothing treatments such as these will help you in grounding yourself in a better way for a more fluid progression of your day. One can even practice mindfulness techniques for meditation to get into a frame of mind where you will basically observe rather than get affected by everyday events. You must find yourself a quiet place where you can meditate in a peaceful way.
  2. Yoga: Many people consider Yoga and its various postures and poses as the best means for the union of the mind, the body as well as the spirit. So, this is also a good way to keep stress and anxiety away. Ensure that you practice the exercises, poses and various breathing activities on a daily basis for at least half an hour to one hour in order to feel visible effects in your mood.
  3. Acupressure: There are a series of specific acupoints in everyone  's body which can be pressed and activated in order to relieve the painful and debilitating symptoms of many conditions, including stress and anxiety. Acupressure is a well known way of dealing with these conditions. This method, with its pointed devices and needles, helps in releasing endorphins and eliminating toxins with reduced muscle pressure and better blood circulation.
  4. A Better Routine: One of the best ways of removing stress and anxiety from your life is by taking care of your routine and ensuring that you eat, sleep and exercise at a set time every single day so as to create a more organised environment in your life. Limiting caffeine and removing smoking or excessive alcohol dependence can also improve the condition by leaps and bounds.

If the stress and anxiety does not go away with natural methods, then it is best to see a doctor for supplements and therapy.

This fear is called phobia. You can control this phobia. Start the bike with minimum. That will continue automatically. If you start initially high speed later it will continue like that. Practice minimum speed always for 21 days. Later it will become your attitude. Always try to go minimum speed. When ever you are driving concentrate on driving. Maintain minimum speed. Do not cross the roads with speed. Your crossing speedly later thinking about that. Anything happened to me. Relaxed driving always best. Do not confused. Better to start early time. Start practicing minimum speed. Once you go slowly it will give much satisfaction. You do not have negative thoughts also. Change your behaviour. Do not imitate others and do not think others are what thinking about to me. Practice slow driving it is always best. Ok best of luck.

Madam, eventhough you may be better as of now, relapse of depression can occur. The medicines help maintain the neurotransmitter balance in the brain. If your history of depression is long, it is advisable to keep meeting your psychiatrist regularly and continue medicine as per instructions. Feeling right now and having a worse episode later may be catastrophic. Its just like immunisation. You can choose not to get vaccine of a certain illness by avoiding the injection but later the consequences are severe.
