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.

Consult a psychiatrist and discuss your concerns with him. Your psychiatrist may suggest either increasing the dose or changing the medicine or adding another medicine to overcome your depression. He may also discuss with you the option of shock treatment. Many options are available to overcome depression. Do not make any hasty decisions.

I am in a very poor mental condition. My results of class 12 final exams are bad and I have failed to keep up to the expectations of my parents and teachers. I blame myself for this. No one else is to blame. My family life is bit complicated. My mother single handedly bought me up. I was a topper of my school. But then suddenly I suffered some depression in class 10 but recovered after that. But my entire class 11 and 12 studies were very poor as I was distracted all the time. I am addicted to smartphone for I have no friends. I have not visited any place since 2010. It is not possible for us to travel. It is better if I do not talk about my father. He have beaten me and harassed me since childhood. I and my mother do not have money so are dependent on my father. Only for money. Apart from that we have no relation with my father. I cannot concentrate on anything. I always feel like crying. I think sooner or later I have to give up. I cannot take this embarrassment any longer. I cannot find any meaning in life. The last few days have been a living death for me. I am writing this out of utter helplessness.

You should learn to enjoy your job. You are giving 100% but you are not passionate about your job. You take the examples of scientists, who are not aware of time when they research. Once you become passionate, you don't feel mentally stressed. You may post a detailed private querty to me (for a fee) and I shall provide you some tips.

I am 21 years, a student and have suffered depression in my college life due to my dad's abusive and agressive behaviour. I know he loves me but that is the way he is. Now, I dont live with him but still I get low and feel lonely sometimes. I dont know know what's the reason for my this feeling but I now I am not able to laugh, even cry like I earlier used to. During my college life, the thought of suicide also crossed my mind but I got over it with the hope that one day i'll have a successful carrer and i'll not have to suffer from all of this but with this lowlessnes and emptiness, it rather seems difficult. Also, this low and depressed feeling comes at any time and other times, it appears that everything is fine. Seriously, please I need your suggestion on what to do?

You are into an anger related depression and must work with a therapist to express this feeling to come out of the depression. Your anger may be directed at your father, and if your mother was passive during these abuses, you may be angry with her too. Even if you do not live with your father, he lives very much in your head, still abusing you with those memories you have of him. This will continue to torment you wherever you go and therefore it is imperative for you to sort out this mess in your head. You are losing affect in the bargain as a measure to deny the feeling so that you don? t have to deal with it. But that is exactly the set up for further depression. Your emotions are very important to you, and give you identity. By denying them you are not acknowledging yourself. We are all emotional beings and as such are able to be humane because of our feelings. This could get you into serious trouble later when this thing may become too entrenched to deal with easily. If it ever becomes unbearable, then do meet with a psychiatrist too.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor i.e. the work. It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. You must also talk to your superior that the workload is getting beyond your means and that you need more personnel to support you. Finally, learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate. You may also take a multivitamin and multimineral along with your food. You must also keep a good regimen of exercise, sleep, and diet so that you can combat stress in whatever form it appears.

Role Of Homeopathy In Treating Depression

Role Of Homeopathy In Treating Depression

Depression is a mental-emotional disorder that reflects signs of severe sadness, pessimism and a general indifference towards life. There are major changes in physical activities as well. It is a little difficult to identify in the initial stages and it can move on to a more serious condition wherein a person turns suicidal. People suffering from depression may intentionally inflict physical pain on themselves as an outlet to relieve their psychological suffering.

Symptoms of Depression

  1. Loss of interest towards their hobbies.

  2. A laidback, indifferent attitude towards life.

  3. Persistent sadness.

  4. Irritability for causes unknown.

  5. Pessimism.

  6. Sudden weeping outbursts.

  7. Restlessness.

  8. Inability to concentrate on something for a long period of time.

  9. Inability to apply the mind to work.

  10. Lack of rational or logical thinking.

Causes of Depression

  1. A sad, difficult event in life. For example, a major failure, loss of a loved one, separation from a loved one, a disturbed family life or any other form of tragedy.

  2. Reaction to certain medication that has affected the neuro-transmitters or bio-chemicals present in the brain.

  3. Hormonal imbalance, especially during the peri-menopausal (marked by the ovaries secreting lesser oestrogen) years of a woman.

  4. Any physical disability or chronic illness such as cancer can contribute to depression.

Treatment for Depression

  1. Counselling sessions with a psycho-therapist.

  2. Consultation with a neurologist.

  3. Spiritual healing through chants, guidance, positive thoughts.

  4. Medication.

  5. Spending time with friends, loved ones.

Healing Depression With Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a natural and non-toxic remedy for several diseases. The major advantage of homeopathy over other medication is that it does not cause any adverse side effect. It is safe and can be used at all ages without worrying about any detrimental consequence. Homeopathy is known to be very effective in treating depression. Homeopathy medicines are prescribed after a thorough study of the symptoms. Homeopathy first treats the symptoms and then provides relief; for example, the constant mental exhaustion or some unexplained physical pain. It then works on the cause of the disease. In this case, the medicines will affect and treat the hormonal disorders or neurological disorders. Following this, homeopathy medicines will try to prevent the onset of depression in future. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

I am an OCD patient. I am on treatment but I still get negative thoughts and these negative thoughts causes me anxiety. How to reduce my anxiety during that time naturally.

MD Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mohali
Dear , Anxiety is one of the core symptoms of OCD. Since your obsessions are still persisting, the best way to get rid of anxiety will be to get rid of the symptoms. In addition to anxiety, you can consider starting cognitive behaviour therapy which has a very good effect in reducing OCD symptoms. Talk to your psychiatrist regarding the same. In addition, exercise is one of the best natural ways of reducing anxiety. You can also start doing relaxation techniques in form of deep breathing and meditation. Hope that you recover soon. Best wishes.

I am not able to maintain constant interest in a single work. Please help. Memory related to theory is very poor. How to improve my learning ability?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
No matter what your age, throughout your life you will be learning. Your formal education ends with high school, but for many the learning never ends. You may attend a university, trade school, night school, community college or adult school. You may enhance your knowledge via business seminars, lectures, books, e-courses, and whatever else shows up in our information society. So wouldn?t it be helpful to have some good study habits and some tools to increase your ability to learn? Although you may not be studying information to get good grades, retention of what you are learning can help your career, your parenting skills, your business, your relationships, your hobbies, and so much more. So it makes sense to acquire good learning skills sooner than later. Skills such as speed reading and good comprehension are useful for all the great information you want to take in. Here are some more secrets for improving your ability to learn. Most apply to classes, but you can adapt them to any learning situation. 1. Be Prepared. If you?re taking a class online or at a school, study the curriculum in advance so you know what to expect. Engage in necessary prep work like downloading software, getting a workbook, or setting aside the dates for the course. 2. Get and Stay Organized. If you?re a computer note taker, make sure you set up a file folder system that will enable you to find what you need when you need it. Learning good computer organizational skills will save you a lot of time and headaches. If you take notes by hand, keep them in a labeled binder so you can review them later. Keep any other course papers in the binder as well. 3. Be On Time. If you?re taking a teleclass (this is a class conducted via telephone), call in five minutes early. Clear your desk, and have your pen and pad or a new computer file open. For live classes, show up a few minutes ahead of schedule. When you?re on time, you will have your full attention focused on the class, and not on ?catching up? with yourself and what you may have missed. 4. Take Good Notes. If you?re unable to listen and write at the same time, just listen and then write notes after the class is over. If it?s recorded, you can review the class and take notes then. You can also ask the teacher for his/her outline, summary, or notes. Review your last class notes before your next class. 5. Establish Your Learning Style. Which is your best and preferred learning style: visual (reading), auditory (listening) or kinesthetic (doing)? When you know your learning style, take classes that incorporate that style. For example, audio learners keep CDs in their car to turn traffic jams into productive time. Book learners may keep a notebook handy to take notes and read as they exercise on the stepper machine or treadmill. When you study, do you need silence or do you enjoy having music playing in the background? Knowing how you learn best improves your effectiveness. 6. Ask Questions. If you?re taking a course online or in a school, make sure to jot down questions as they come up and ask them when you have a chance. I?ve always believed there are no dumb or silly questions. If you need clarification, you won?t continue learning until you have your questions answered. Most instructors see questions as a sign of an alert, intelligent mind. 7. Complete All Assignments. Stay current with your assignments and complete each one. If you?re reading a self-help book, do all the exercises. If you miss a class, find a way to get the assignments?from another student or the teacher. Online classes are often recorded, so make sure to listen to the recording if you can?t make a class. With information coming at us from so many directions and in so many formats, it?s difficult to sort out what?s important. It?s even more difficult to retain data with so much to store in our brains. Ultimately we have to be more selective in what we choose to learn, and we need in order to develop effective learning habits. Having good study habits can help.

Organic Brain Syndrome. Rule out UTI/Other infections and treat the cause. Oxazepam 7.5mg sos/nocte or bd. Will be of some help. Most often Zopiclone for sleep will do. Rest with TLC is very much therapeutic.

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.
