I am suffering from depression for last two years, headache. Now I am doing yoga but not getting relief, what to do.
Dear, welcome to lybrate. Yoga alone can never cure depression. 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.

Hi My daughter 34 years old married for 13 years, having lovely daughter of 6 yrs old & 42yrs old husband software engineer. It earning high salary owning high rise flat working from residence & engaged all the time with laptop, tv mobile only. He is a perfect saint, has no vices. It appears now that my daughter is totally unhappy with marriage& considers us responsible. She is suffering from high depression & turns down all our advice's as if we are her enemy. I am afraid whether she will be mad. Please advise what we should do.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
If she is having marital problem, the best option would be marital therapy. The success of marriage depends on participation and compromises by both husband and wife. However if your daughter has developed depression, she must be treated first for that, before any counselling is started.

Hi,am 45 year male,married have a 18 year son.From childhood used to write only in capital letters.Difficult to write in small caps & running letters.But from past years becoming difficult to write certain numbers like 3,6,8,9,0 and letters like B,S and few more.It takes more time to start & write above mentioned numbers & letters.Becomes more difficult to write if someone is watching me while writing, can't write correctly. Please suggest. Thanks Samir mehta

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There are some people who have become habituated to write in capital letters. You have been doing so for many years and it has become entrenched in your writing style. To change it now will be very, very difficult unless you are willing to go to calligraphy classes and work at it for a long time. Anyway, why would you want to change your style now, when you have managed for so many years?! The writing itself may not be the problem as much as it seems more psychological. Just to rule out any neurological problem you may get an examination from a neurologist. Your mind could be playing all kinds of tricks with you and making you very conscious of being inadequate and different from others. As you have mentioned that it becomes more difficult, if someone else is watching you. If your mind decides that something is going to be difficult, then it will make that difficulty become real. Are you under any kind of stress, especially to do with fear? You may be very suggestible under fear. This obsession can be quite a handicap, but of your own making. Talk to a psychologist or counselor to identify any underlying causes to your problem and have that sorted out. You will find that the difficulty with those numbers will also disappear.

I suppose you are retired. In that case you may have a lot of spare time and worry about whether the family thinks about you often. This is your insecurity at this age. Have faith and trust god that he will take care of them; and the lack of contact does not mean that something is wrong with them. Many youngsters are really busy, whether studying or working. With an over-active mind and lots of time on your hand, you can spread a bit of unnecessary panic to them. If contact with your children is so important to your wellbeing, then call them up yourself. If not you could also tell them that you worry a lot and that you would like them to keep regular contact with you. There are a lot of things you can do at your age to keep yourself busy by joining likeminded and homogeneous age groups in your locality that have very interesting activities. For example, you could join a book reading club and you may then find that you do not have time to ponder on these negative thoughts.

General Physician,
Air cleaners may not take care of second hand smoke:

Air purifiers DO NOT reduce the exposure to secondhand smoke. Best is not to allow smoking in your vicinity on the occasion of World No Tobacco Day.

Various devices are available for air cleaning, ranging from systems that are incorporated into the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning to simple table top devices and "smokeless ashtrays.

But cleaning air of second hand smoke poses a technical challenge because of the tobacco smoke as well as gases and particles that are included in second hand smoke.

Air cleaning devices typically include filters or electrostatic precipitators to remove particles. Some devices, also include a sorbent, such as activated charcoal, to remove gases. For second hand smoke both elements are needed.

For any air cleaning device to be effective, it must be able to clean a sufficient volume of air in relation to the total volume of the space where it is operating. Few devices are able to clean sufficient volumes of air to be effective in managing smoking indoors.

Small devices, like smokeless ashtrays and many table-top units, offer completely inadequate cleaning capacity.

I am experiencing loss of concentration and memory. I can't recall things I study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

YOu can try these self help or may need antidepressants . 10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day." As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression," Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning." 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression," You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

I want to concentrate my mind on one thing. But I m unable. How can I concentrate mind?

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Difficulty concentrating is a normal and periodic occurrence for most people. Tiredness and emotional stress can cause concentration problems in most people. Hormonal changes at your age can also affect your thinking and concentration capabilities for some time. However if you are suffering from an excessive degree of concentration problem then you should consult an expert. There are certain psychological conditions that cause concentration problems too, like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), bipolar disorder (bpd).

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.
