Does flavored hookah effects our heath? And e-hookah is good or also is bad for health? If we do hookah 2 time in 10 days then hw much it is effected?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Yes. Hookah is more injurious than cigarettes. E-hookah maybe less injurious but is not devoid of side-effects. The flavours may not contain tobacco but has traces of it. Also inhaling smoke is certainly bad.

Memory and Concentration on work is important in all sphere of life. Effective study is only possible if you study with full attention throwing off mind all the irrelevant thoughts which interrupt in the process of learning. Try to get full sleep.-Take at least six hour rest for refreshment and relaxation of your mind. A fresh mind can concentrate more easily. Take regular exercise - Brain takes its nutrients from blood for functioning properly. Physical exercise speeds up blood circulation to brain and brain gets well nourished as well as brain gets rid of waste products. Study in a place with no or less distractions - Your study place should be free from such things which may absorb your attention, i.e television, music, changing color bulbs, maps etc. Similarly study in quiet place free from sound distractions. Avoid multi-tasking - While you study avoid playing with other things. Like you study as well as texting to friends on cell phone or making hair styles or one eye on television and one eye on book. Similarly study one subject in one time. Fixation of priorities - If you don’t fix your priorities and work haphazardly, it is more likely you start thinking while doing one task “shouldn’t I do the other task first as that is more important”. This thought will not let you work with concentration. Make time-table for your subject and follow it. Take short breaks in long study - If you study for a long time, you get bore and can’t maintain concentration on work. You should refresh your mind by taking short breaks to maintain your concentration on study. Have good breakfast - Your breakfast should contain items with high protein content, carbohydrates and low sugar content. When you get up from sleep, have good diet though normally you should take light diet. Play Brain Games - computer-based brain-training programs can help you sharpen a range of skills, from reading and comprehension to improved memorization and more. Master a New Skill - Engaging in "purposeful and meaningful activities" stimulates your neurological system, counters the effects of stress-related diseases, reduces the risk of memory loss and enhances health and well-being. Try Mnemonic Devices - Mnemonic devices are memory tools to help you remember words, information or concepts. They help you to organize information into an easier-to-remember format. Try 1.Acronyms (such as PUG for "pick up grapes") 2.Visualizations (such as imagining a tooth to remember your dentist's appointment) 3.Rhymes (if you need to remember a name, for instance, think "Shirley's hair is curly) 4.Chunking, which is breaking up information into smaller "chunks" (such as organizing numbers into the format of a phone number). Concentration Exercises - There some exercises which improve your power of concentration i.e. Yoga, self-hypnosis, looking at a round spot on wall with full attention etc. There are books on these things you can study. Your feedback matters for follow up. Thank -you.

My father age is 65 he is suffering from parkinson. His health going down day by day he take levodopa 4 to 6 times in a day. He is also so impatient please suggest how can we care him.

COMT, MPTh/MPT

I understand your concern for your father. In physiotherapy we have several techniques to treat Parkinson’s patients like stretching exercises, manipulation techniques, mobility program, co-ordination/balance training etc. Physical therapy is the best treatment that we can offer to patients to make them work independently by increasing there functional performance. So I would recommend you to take him to physiotherapist who can make a best treatment plan from further deterioration of disease. By the time you can ask him to do daily walk for 20 min (if he can do independently) and general mobility exercises so that his muscles does not get stiff / rigid. Regards.

She has obviously been traumatized by, not only the sudden death of her father, but the manner of his death. Girls are normally close to their fathers and so this has had a great impact on her. I do not believe that she has genuinely or completely resolved his death. She has to go through some grieving therapy and so it is advised that you take her to a counselor to take care of that. Once she takes care of the grief and perhaps some anger too, she will return to normal pretty soon. You, as her husband, must be very empathetic and understanding and give her all the support you can to help her process this grief. She has to be encouraged to talk and express all the feelings and memories to completely deal with the issue.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

You seem to be going through a lot and it looks like post traumatic stress disorder. You can benefit from counselling where you will be able to deal with the stresses of the past problems that might be still affecting you. Additionally please start exercises like yoga, meditation and tai chi to help you get back balance in life. Eat healthy food and reduce any junk food. A visit to a psychiatrist can help you if there is any underlying psychiatric issue. Please consult if you have any questions.

Excellent decision but would be willing to at least admit yourself into a hospital and go through detoxification for less than two weeks? If not you will need to admit yourself into a rehabilitation for at least 6 weeks. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend NA meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. to be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

Hi my self Nazeer, I have short temper memory problem, I have taken many medicine but no changes. What should I do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Do the following: 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. You can make village action committee taking help from other like minded village people. Take help of women and other youngsters. Try to convince the smoking people. Definitely it will be not that easy and could take much time. But slowly and steadily, you will see the change. You can take help from the store people and request not to sell smoking ingredients etc. One step at a time, leads to success. Take care.

I am a smoker. I want to get rid off this. Can you suggest something so that I may not get attracted towards it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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.
