Swami ramdev reports patients have benefited by anulomvilom pranayama. You will have to close and open your son' nostrils with your hand. I hope if you do it there will be definite improvement. Otherwise, medicines are the last resort with little success so why not try pranayama that might benefit just as other mental health problems.

I always remain ridden with negative thoughts and under the fear of future. I am not enjoying my life even a bit. I can't concentrate on my profession which entails a good deal of concentration. I was (prescribed) on Venlor and Agildol by a psychiatrist for more than one year but still I am suffering. Please guide me. Is it feasible to get well without medicines in such cases ? Thanks !

The multivitamins are good for other reasons but will not have any impact on this condition. You could be depressed. It is very important that you get into a routine by which I mean you need to follow a disciplined lifestyle. Please visit with a counselor first and that person will check how intense your situation is and decide whether you need medication also. Whatever happens, do not discontinue your therapy with the counselor. You must also work on your emotions and learn to express them appropriately. I suspect you have some deep-rooted sadness that needs to be dealt with. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, 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. Get into a healthy routine, and do some fixed activities that are interesting, and involve people in your life every day.

Hello lybrate-user, You are probably feeling that there is no end to your problems and suicide seems like the only way out, but please understand that suicide is not your way out. There is help available. Please reach out to a psychiatrist and get help. Life is worth living you may not feel so now coz everything thing may seem negative to you but trust me ,hold on you won't regret it. Where ever you are reach out and get help. If you are on medication and it is not helping tell your doctor they can change it. There is a solution to all problems. You are right now only concentrating only on the problem look towards a solution. Try some of the following tips along with medication and it may help Tough times are a part of our life, sometimes we are unable to handle it leading to us becoming slaves to a lot of negativity. There are a few things you can try to  help tide over it. * Firstly stop being in denial   accept the situation stop getting angry and bargaining for something better, accept and tell yourself  I want to face this  and  I will do my best to deal with this.* What next? - calm down, think through and try to figure out what to do next? Start working on a solution for the issue rather than just focusing on the issue. * Solution may not come to you immediately but at least start working towards it one step at a time.  * To find solutions we should put ourselves in a third person perspective. Finding solutions is a lot easier this way. Remember that every problem has a solution. * Get help - do not shove away family, friends or any loved ones who are trying to help you. Seeking help does not make you weak. Try and discuss the issue with them to get an outsiders perspective. Since they are not a part of the problem they will be able to have 360 view of the issue and they may be able to help you better. * Positivity is important - it may seem like a difficult task but try to focus on the positive things happening in your life. Try to surround yourself with positive people, and people who see the good in you. * Don t give up   never give way for negativity to seep into your life. Stop yourself from focusing on negative thoughts and emotions.   Drugs/ alcohol - never look at drugs, alcohol, smoking or abuse of any kind as a solution for your problem, it only gives you a perception that things are fine, but the truth is, it only increases your problem. * No blame game - do not blame yourself or others for the problem. Blaming will not solve your situation. * Stay healthy- do not neglect your health. You need to be there for yourself too. Finally remember this too shall pass.

Hi, I would recommend you to talk to your wife on this freely and let her talk her heart; may be she is going through some mental stress or mental trauma, or she may have some medical condition which makes her tired through out the day (which makes her to avoid sex) or may be she is not comfortable during the sex or may be the bond between you and her is not that strong enough (give her emotional, physical support with full attention and keeping your ego away; spend quality time with her daily, go out for a holiday with her only keeping your kids at home or with your parents). If she has general weakness, you can give her homoeopathic medicines - Five Phos./ 3 times a day and Avena Sativa Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup water/ 3 times a day/ 1month. Revert.

Hi lybrate-user, have guts, gather courage tell your guy to divorce and move on with you why be so scared about it when you both love each other, on the other hand if families reputation is involved and he is too weak to take a stand you are too weak then please let it go, there is no point continuing now. If he seriously feels he is destroying life of his wife he should think about separation otherwise there is no point hanging on to past.

Exercise will definitely help removing your laziness and improve immunity. Have small frequent meals or eats. High protein, high calorie diet if you r not over weight. When feel lazy read subject or topic you love more. You can try walk and read, vitamin supplements.

You both may be having different ideas and fatancies about sexual relationship. It is also possible that your urge is stronger than hers. But to learn more about it talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Sexual satisfaction is very important for a marriage to sustain. Any dissatisfaction of sexual needs will complicate the relation further. Kindly seek professional help at the earliest.

Dear Sumit. Smoking is injurious to health. There are two methods available for you to quit smoking. First method is use of deaddiction therapy which is good but chances of relapse is more. You may consult a psychologist online. Second method is to quit smoking NOW and sustain it with mental strength. Motivation therapy and will power therapy should help you doing so. Please consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Your friend needs to evaluate all the pros and cons of whatever she decides to do. Its difficult to understand whether this relationship has any solid grounds. There are two layers to this situation. Layer 1) whether to get into live-in because she loves him and he has promised divorce to his wife after 3yrs. Your friend needs to consider following scenarios. A) he gives divorce and marries her after 3yrs: maybe possible, maybe not. What if he has a kid with his wife in these 3yrs. This will complicate the situation and cause undue pain and dysfunctionality to a family structure. B) he does not divorce his wife after 3years bcos maybe he feels responsible towards her or situation gets too much complicated. What will your friend do after spend 3years in live-in with him. Can she imagine the emotional and physical attachments may make it difficult for her to move on? will she be willing to settle for as a second option all of her life? thinking abt having children may complicate things further. Layer 2) she does not have father so he is financially supporting her family. How and who approved of such an arrangement? what is the role of her mother in this situation? is there no other source of income in the family? what would the family have done to have financial security if this guy would not have been in their life? why is the girl not earning to support the family? is this the only way she can bring money into the house? is money the only binding factor for this relationship? what will happen to them once the rich guy refuses to take care of them any more? ask your friend to reflect on these questions and take a wiser decision. If she can not do it on her own then consult a counsellor.

I don't know what is the problem in my life? Or is it my destiny? Or it was predestined? I am not able to decide. Or is it the wrong choice and decision or past mistakes that I am suffering in my life? I am not satisfied with the present situation in my life. I have never been able to achieve what I wanted in my life. I see myself with lots of potential. I am like all rounder. I am good looking person, I can sing, dance, act, study, play any games etc. But I am not expert in any area. With the increase in weight I am becoming more and more depressed. I don't face people especially with the opposite sex. Inferiority complex has made me sluggish. People see me as lazy. I spend more time watching TV. I don't have any friends that's because I don't trust people. I am reserved kind of person. I want to change my situation but don't know where to start.

You are in charge of your life whatever else happens. You are also in charge of your destiny and you draw up a plan in early childhood that will determine the life path. This is called a script. To really understand your problem in its totality, is to go back home to your family of origin to trace some of the genesis of your problems. You may ignore all my assessments for want of complete evidence, and that is okay. I am not the world’s perfect diagnostic man, nor do I boast of knowing it all. So feel free to take what appeals and dump the rest in the garbage can. In my opinion, I think that your problem lies in the fear of rejection. This rejection is usually founded in your family of origin and is somewhat manifest in some descriptions you have given already. This is not to find fault with your parents: they may have done a lot of things with good intentions but may have inadvertently set up rejection. If you go way back, and see if there was any rejection prenatally or postnatally (again all this with intention or without), the child will pick up the sensation or feel like he is not wanted or even rejected. As you can see, I am presuming all this. You will have to give it substance if you so have the substance. Without reaching to any conclusions, just indulge in this thought to see if there is any semblance of truth to explore it further. Your parents may throw light on this but don’t share too much of what I saying until it has been verified. Also find out, if there was an abortion or miscarriage before or after you were born. Whether you were wanted by both parents at birth. Whether they expected a female child and were disappointed that you were a boy! How long were you breastfed by mom etc? These will all throw some light on my proposal of rejection if there is any truth.

Gaining weight is as difficult as losing it, if you are naturally thin. Skinny people complain that they can't put on any weight.If you want to build up weight, don't just eat high-calorie junk foods and rely on unnecessary supplements. Choose foods that are energy-dense and nutrient-dense whenever possible. Following are some tips to follow to increase your weight. You will take some time to gain the weight you need, but be patient. 1. If you have a rapid metabolism, then you must increase your daily intake of healthy foods (increase your intake of carbohydrates) to compensate for the rate at which you burn energy. Eat six smaller meals a day You should also eat more energy dense foods like healthy oils, dry fruits, seeds, nuts, pulses, etc. along with some starchy foods like potatoes, cereals, bread, pasta, rice, etc. 2. Consume more calories than you burn. Choose healthy calorie-dense food to add calories. Drink healthy beverages to add calories. Mangoes are rich in calories and carbohydrates, include them in your diet. 3. Eat healthy food frequently, 5-6 times a day - 3 larger meals and 3 smaller meals alternately. Separate them by at least 3 hours so you can digest each meal fully. Don't go without food for 5-6 hours after having a major meal. For example, if you wish to consume 3000 calories a day, you may eat 3 larger meals of about 650 calories and 3 smaller meals of about 450 calories. 4. Have a balanced diet. 5. Exercise regularly for putting on weight. Some thin people think that exercise is not good for them. This is not true, it keeps the metabolism high. Remember that eating alone is not sufficient. You don't want to gain fat but lean mass, so exercise is important. Resistance training exercises will help to increase your muscle mass, which in turn will increase metabolism. Learn to distinguish between weight gaining exercises and weight loss exercises. Note that if you do not get enough amino acids during exercise, the existing muscle may break down. Amino acids come from protein foods so you should eat such foods after exercise. Keep in mind that excessive exercise without putting back the energy you have used will not help you to put on weight.

Dear Adi, This time if you tested negative does not mean that next time you can have sex with unknown or even known person, it will be negative always. Better to be safe rather than sorry. Always carry think condom and use it whenever you have sex. Known or unknown person are the same unless you know the person's HIV status. Many time you may not know the HIV status of a known person.
