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.

Dear, According to Ayurveda joint pain is known as Sandhigata vata. With increase in age vata dosha is predominant in human body that is why with aging disease caused by vata dosha increases in body. Joint pain is a common symptom with many possible causes. Joint Pain and Arthritis are the one of the most devastating conditions faced by individuals, particularly elderly women today. When there is pure Vata dosha involvement (a pain without swelling or discoloration) then the massage with medicated ayurvedic oil is quite useful & supplement is helpful in balancing bodily humors ?vata, which is responsible dosha for Sandhigata vata .

Dear lybrate user...Anxiety with a feeling of being on the edge almost throughout the day causing significant functional impairment is suggestive of you having Anxiety Disorder. In your case not taking medications for anxiety disorder and just treating your insomnia will be a wrong management plan, as with anxiety a person will have difficulty falling asleep. Thus I would suggest to target and treat your anxiety and sleep problems simultaneously for a much better result. In case of your anxiety regarding sleep, I would suggest not to sleep during day at all, not to go to bed and force yourself to sleep during night time. Just wait and do some un-interesting work say reading some serious novel in a dim light away from your bed. Once you start feeling sleepy, get back to bed and sleep. Its a vicious cycle of not having sleep a night and you trying hard to sleep the next night thinking that sleep may not come. This forcing yourself to sleep is itself anxiety provoking and thus try not to go to bed until you feel sleepy. And yes if this is not sufficient than you may need the help of medications. Take care

My query is my husband lives in abroad. Daily he masturbates by forcing me to do sex chat. Having 5 year old boy & 5months old small girl baby with being neutral family I find difficult to chat. I am not at all interested to do so. This makes my husband angry & daily we fight. He always threatening about divorce. Kindly suggest me your valuable solution.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Sex chat can be done, if both partner's consent for it. It is completely your decision to do it or not. Try to persuade your spouse diplomatically for his requests. Tip: telephonic chats are better than sms/written chats as there are no documentary evidences which can be used later maliciously by anybody.

Dear Ranjit The fear that people are judging me generally occurs when we have very low self confidence. You will have to practice some relaxation exercises , breathing exercises and have to monitor your self talk. We are all the time talking to ourselves. Most of the self talk is telling us 'how we are incapable' 'what people are thinking about me' etc. Question yourself - how many times you think about what people do ? No one has the time to think about what others are doing . If someone comments on you all the time, such people should anyways be avoided- because well meaning people appreciate also . Indulge in positive thinking and surround yourself with people who are positive and encouraging.

Ok as you like it, please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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.

Dear Lybrate User, Nice of you to write and explain the issues you are facing .Do take some time out and figure out what are your goals and what you want from your relationship. Live your life according to your goals. Take your parents and friends into confidence and ask them for suggestions. Do make priorities and work out as to what will make you happy. Discuss frankly and tactfully your carrier and life goals with your boy friend, take his suggestions too. Relationships are based on trust and understanding. I am sure if you ask your boyfriend for genuine help and assistance to achieve your life goals he will assist you with good suggestions. Remember that a relationship is two way and its better to be clear on the expectations of each side. Wishing you all the best. Do write back if you require any further assistance.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear Lybrate-User, Getting out of an abusive relationship is a brave thing to do, good job on being able to take this step. Since your anxiety stems from coming out of an abusive relationship it will be important to explore the thoughts that trigger the anxiety. Meanwhile here are a few things you can try to help manage your anxiety: 1. When you feel like you are becoming anxious, look around you and identify: 5 things you can see, 4 things you can hear, 3 things you can smell, 2 things you can feel and 1 thing you can taste. 2. Deep breathing: Taking deep breaths helps normalise your breathing in times of anxiety. Try taking 5 deeps breaths and slowly bring your breathing back to normal. Please consult privately for further help. Good luck.

Hi lybrate-user! Age doesn't matter the modern world and life style makes you think. It is like survival of the fittest. There is nothing wrong for thinking negatively, bcoz the world is like that, it is not that peaceful like what it was about 15 to 20 years ago, so the approach in facing situations should be different I mean you should face each and every walks of your life more positively. Ya it works "All is Well" to some extent, but you require a more impacting ways to convert your negativity into a more positive one. Of course world wide acceptable and effective way both physically and mentally is the more ancient way of following Yoga and meditation, which would suit you and your family better. Feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage. Take care. Do not worry. With regards, Psy. MSV.
