I am 18 years old, and this question from my grandfather-How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

Hello sir, there is no safer unit of consuming alcohol. Alcohol is the playing a role to make people over age than real age. According to american studies 21 unit per week is less effective on male. That is tolerable for male per weak. Above it leads to liver disease. Thank you.

Your wife suffering frigidity. It is psychological disorder. It is also called as fear of sex. It needs psychotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy, sex therapy. If the psychologist is lady then it is helpful to you. Generally this type of problems comes to me. I conduct psychological counselling. Marital counselling both you need. This problem will not solved with gynecologist. It needs sex psychologist. Or expert in psychological counselling. Wait for more time. It needs lot of patience. It is not her problem. She is under psychological frigidity. It is curable. It takes some time to come out of the problem. Or better to consult sexologist also he is also helpful for this problem. Maintain good relation with your wife. Do not argue with her. Maintain friendly atmosphere. One day she will cooperate to you. Age is not criteria. It is common nowadays. Share your personal feelings and problems with your wife. Allow her to share her feelings. Be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

My boyfriend is born Intersex by birth (male and female both) He has the genitals of a Intersex person. (He's not transgender) I'm a normal female and I'm his girlfriend. The problem is that he's struggling with low self esteem. He hates his life because he's a Intersex person. He also suffers from depression and anxiety because of this. He tried committing suicide many years ago and I suspect that he still must be feeling suicidal. I always do my best to keep him happy but nothing works. Please tell me what to do? How should I help him out? I hope he doesn't commit suicide.

Due to smoking unable get in sex. Any treatment and exercise. I want to quick smoking. Tried due to circumstances still on. We need kid pls help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course your sex life will be effected if you continue to smoke. So quitting and immediately and promptly is the best advice I can give you. You must do a lot of exercises: one of which is called kegel and you can find more if you google this name. There are too many harmful effects because of smoking. But here are a few to ruminate up on with the intention of either making you stop or to never start again. It has more than 7000 chemical substances most of which are harmful. It affects your stamina, breathing, forms skin wrinkles; Bad for your heart, bad for bad cholesterol, it can lead to strokes, dental problems, eye problems, cancer, brain cell death, vascular problems, throat problems, voice difficulties, etc. The list is quite endless. It is so bad that there is an international battle to dissuade smoking. Each cigarette you smoke has an effect on your erectile capacity: the nicotine in the cigarette is a vasoconstrictor i.e. it narrows the blood vessels to constrict the blood flow. The erection of the penis is caused by an extra flow of blood to the penis along with a shut down valve that facilitates its engorgement. This action will be compromised. Your BP rises with every cigarette you smoke. But to me the biggest danger is that, in time, dependence and tolerance will develop so that you will want more cigarettes in order to have the same effect as when you started smoking with only one or two. Now, the bluff that we all went through when we were teens was this belief (really a denial) that, if we want, we can stop at any time we choose. That unfortunately does not work: it is a deceptive bluff. The fortunate thing about giving up smoking is that you can reverse most of the damage by giving up at any time: the sooner the better, however.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 chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

If all the above said are recent changes in your behaviour then these could be due to unresolved stress and depression. Females at your age are prone for hormonal changes, peri menopausal symptoms etc and hence depression. You might need some investigations to rule out possibilities of hormonal imbalance, vitamin deficiencies etc. Dressing and anxiety improve for sure by treatment with medications and counselling.

Alcohol or smoking show their effects on Which age. How our chest can be cure after so much smoking.Please tell sir.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Alcohol or smoking show their effects on Which age. How our chest can be cure after so much smoking.Please tell sir.
Alcohol and smoking do harm to everyone at any age. When you smoke you damage your lungs: when you smoke more you damage your lungs more: and if you smoke less you damage your lungs no less – well may be a little less. Your desire to smoke less is most welcome but it is not enough. You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. 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. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. 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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Do not discontinue, change, modify or alter any medication without the advice of your doctor. These kind of changes can cause relapse. Medication is to be taken for a prescribed period of time. It is not to be discontinued just because you feel better. Risk of relapse is very high in such situations, and relapsed patients are more difficult to treat. Consult your treating psychiatrist about the same. Also consult a dermatologist who will be able to advise you regarding any interaction with other medications.

I have memory loss problems. I forget the educational things. J am soft nature person. I am not talking any tensions. I am a mechanical engineer, so I needs to keep all technical things in my brain but due to memory loss I am unable. I don't have a single bad habits. Please suggest powerful medicine.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Many of us are not aware when we are under stress. Please explore this with a counselor and you will be surprised how much pressure we are under without our knowledge. When you address that memory will return to you happily. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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 too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

How does smoking of weed effects in long term and what precocious need to be taken?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
The immediate effects of taking marijuana include rapid heart beat, disorientation, lack of physical coordination, often followed by depression or sleepiness. Some users suffer panic attacks or anxiety. But the problem does not end there. According to scientific studies, the active ingredient in cannabis, THC, remains in the body for weeks or even months. Marijuana smoke contains 50% to 70% more cancer-causing substances than tobacco smoke. One major research study reported that a single cannabis joint could cause as much damage to the lungs as up to five regular cigarettes smoked one after another. Long-time joint smokers often suffer from bronchitis, an inflammation of the respiratory tract. The drug can affect more than your physical health. Studies in Australia in 2008 linked years of heavy marijuana use to brain abnormalities. This is backed up by earlier research on the long-term effects of marijuana, which indicate changes in the brain similar to those caused by long-term abuse of other major drugs. And a number of studies have shown a connection between continued marijuana use and psychosis. Marijuana can change the structure of sperm cells, deforming them. Thus even small amounts of marijuana can cause temporary sterility in men. Marijuana use can also disrupt a woman’s menstrual cycle.(29) Studies show that the mental functions of people who have smoked a lot of marijuana tend to be diminished. The THC in cannabis disrupts nerve cells in the brain, affecting memory. Cannabis is one of the few drugs that causes abnormal cell division, which leads to severe hereditary defects. A pregnant woman who regularly smokes marijuana or hashish may give birth prematurely to an undersized, underweight baby. Over the last 10 years many children of marijuana users have been born with reduced initiative and lessened abilities to concentrate and pursue life goals. Studies also suggest that prenatal (before birth) use of the drug may result in birth defects, mental abnormalities and increased risk of leukemia (cancer of the bone marrow) in children.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help.

Hi lybrate-user, It does not sound like you are suffering from depression. However, it is important that you realize the root cause of why you are feeling so low. You are looking at yourself from the eyes of your boyfriend, others. Your life is not just about being someone's girlfriend. There is a whole new person existing inside you apart from your relationship which you need to discover. I suggest you go for regular Counseling to share your life freely and learn to develop your confidence and strengths. Take care.

shall I use saraswathi lehyam. Does it really works I mean does it really improves memory power. How should I use it?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Saraswatha lehyam is good for memory. You can take one spoon at night before bed time. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.
