How to clean up smoking effect from lungs? please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself.

Please take her to a psychiatrist for assessment and diagnosis and let the doctor prescribe medication. For you, you need to talk to your doctor if you w to reduce your dosage. Further, these medications have some side effects. I suggest that for a deeper cure from the cause of the illness, both of you undergo counselling sessions coupled with alternative treatment of ayurveda or homeopathy where the root cause is addressed rather than the symptoms. A holistic approach to healing is always better than single approach, where 1. You will need to exercise regularly to release natural anti depressants in your brain which will naturally protect you against mental illness and emotional ups and downs. 2. A healthy diet containing fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish, proteins, good fats is required for a sound mind and body functioning. These foods are mood stabilisers and have a good affect on the cognitive functioning as well as emotional balance. It will ensure you a good night sleep and early rising in the morning. 3. Having a daily routine and time for mental and emotional relaxation is important too. So having a satisfying hobby and a congenial friend circle where you can relax and emotionally intimate with each other is of equal importance.

Please tell me the best way to get hangover free.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Some preventive measures are always recommended first: before you drink, have some light food. It will reduce how much you drink and also absorb the alcohol to reduce its quick effect. Black coffee is supposed to be good but it mainly makes a wide awakened drunk out of you! For every peg that you take it takes three hours to get metabolized in your body. So you can calculate accordingly and decide the quantity to limit yourself to and stall a hangover. Another thing to keep in mind is that 10% of alcohol leaves your system unaffected. You may want to hasten this process by drinking lots of water and fruit juices (cucumber is a natural diuretic) which will start to move through your system within ten minutes. You will get quick relief. Get up and do vigorous exercise to hasten detoxification through the sweating.

I always shouted at people. My family and friends. If they talk little suddenly I get angry. Their little talk feels me so irritating.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Some of the" typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper anger: there is a saying" frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. Giving up: giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. Loss of confidence: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that if we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself" it is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. Stress: is the" wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. Depression: depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. Other reactions: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning to deal with frustration it is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody.

First of all, get your eye sight checked. If that is okay, then see if you are anxious or nervous about something. Indulge in some physical exercise, so that your body gets enough oxygen and drink lots of water - dehydration may also cause constriction of nerves and blood vessels thereby causing the headache. Get adequate sleep. If still there is no relief consult a physician

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I suggest you should not worry much about your voice because it can be changed upto an extent even if you go for surgery. I suggest you to just leave it like that and be proud of what positives you have. Just for some change, you may consult a speech therapist. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, for curing alzheimer's so far nothing has come clinically. Of course we would like to research all the possible ones. Research findings to become clinically relevant needs more time and more replication of findings in different population. For preventing probably all healthy food habit may be helpful. May not be alzheimer's alone, generally any dementia, especially vascular ones.

Getting tensed is just another manifestation of not being able to handle psychological stress and anxiety arising due to various reasons at your age. Anger is an outward expression of inner anxiety which you tend to express on people you know, care about you. I am very much sure that you do tend to feel regret after doing so. If you have been consistently facing problems of tension and inability to control emotional anger outbursts then it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity for opinion and management. Consult me online for any further queries or assistance in treatment.

Hello doctor! I'm 20 years old and i'm in a relationship from past 2 years with a boy. Though there had been many ups and downs in our relationship but this guy as promised never left me alone. He loves me a lot and does so much for me but he used to have a very bad cannabis addiction but it was not a big deal for me. He left everything for me . But then he again started it for a week. And then again left all that because I left him. Both our families know somewhat about us. But the guy has very bad image. Every other person comes and says bad about him that He's only using Me and about his past. I had straight away talked to him about it also but that's all ok. whenever we get intimate after that I get the feeling that He's only using me. Every little action of his like not talking on phone immediately for some reason it all makes Me feel so sad. I get very depressed as i'm not again able to trust him completely on that he will completely leave the cannabis though he has promised me. He meets me everyday and on phone call as well doesn't go to his friends for me. But still I feel very insecure. It feels that he will leave me. He is not listening to my problems and keeps on telling that he has headache after sex and all that. He lows I feel such way he tries to convince me but my mind doesn't makes up. Please help.

You are doing well by confronting him every time you hear something. This sounds like an open relationship, which is really good. When people say something about hi9m it will cause a lot of doubt and so there will be mistrust in the relationship and that is bad. Neither should you ignore what people say because not all of them will lie. Therefore, weigh the facts and cross-examine him and read between the lines of his answers. Because you are in love, you will tend to believe him readily and that is why they say that love is blind. My concern in the first place is why you were attracted to a guy who is addicted to cannabis? The answer to this question is to look inside and see if you felt a strong mothering instinct towards him. If that is the case, believe me, there will be a lot of problems in the future. He has to come clean and not abstain from the substance whenever you threaten him. Unfortunately, there is a double bind: if you leave him now he will definitely go back to marijuana; and if you stayed with him he may play games around all this and still be an addict. Your relationship should be strongly based on good and sound principles, which I feel are not fully present. So have a serious talk with him with an ultimatum that he ahs to not only give up his addiction but also make some serious changes in his life to alter his addictive personality. For this, he should go for addiction counseling and work on his susceptibility. When that counselor can give you some assurances, you can perhaps take the risk. You will need a third person's assurance to prevent the easy influence of being blind at this point. So when too many people talk about him in a bad way, then you know that there is no smoke without a fire!!! Think about all this, talk to him constructively and if he truly loves and also wants to change his personality through therapy, you can go forward always under the approval of the counselor.
