Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison and it is absorbed by liver. Then liver dismantles the alcohol and poisons itself. There is no safe limit. Every drop of alcohol is bad for liver. Please restrain from alcohol drinking. Take care.

Dear anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety.

I'm male and my body pain everyday. What to do?
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continuous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from painkillers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dear lybrate user, to reduce stress in your life, start some exercise, meditation or pick up any hobby. Try to understand the source of this stress, analyse it and find the best options to get rid of this. Stress might cause overeating, so please learn" stress management techniques" to lose weight, concentrate on food having lesser calories and more of proteins and nutrients. Have plenty of water. Go for regular exercise, yoga, cycling, jogging whatever you like. To have perfect relations with your wife, understand what she needs from you. Encourage her to express her feelings and needs and you also express your feelings and needs to her. Open communication, individual freedom of choice, faith, care and love make a healthy married relationship. Also, please understand that if you want to have an" ideal" life, which will have less stress, no sadness and excellent relationships, then you are sure to be disappointed. Every other person in this world would like to have this. But this is not possible. We all will have some stress in life, we cannot be always happy, there will be sad moments in our life. Our relationships also will never be perfect, because each person in this world is unique and hence it is difficult to get along with other people. Because of all this, it is important to have" rational expectations" from life and even from people around us. If you try to be a perfectionist, you might not be satisfied in life. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, you must be quiet tired and frustrated if you are not able to sleep for 2 - 3 days/night. Sometimes the mind keeps working without break and hence affects the body. Your lack of sleep may be a result of something going on in your mind. Probably you are not aware of it or may be you are unable to express it with someone you can trust. The allopathy medicines will give you only symptomatic relief but will not treat the root cause. Hence, please talk to a counsellor who will help you to understand what is going on in your mind and how you can manage your emotions. Take care.

Dear, it is not at all necessary that an intelligent student should go for mbbs or iit. Neither it is a rule that intelligent people do not have problems. Even if you have panic disorder and you are better on medications you can definitely go for any professional courses of your choice. Since you have completed your preparations for mbbs entrance you may give it a go. If you do not qualify you should find some better alternative without delay. Good luck.

Hello, I am vedika 18 years. I just want to improve my concentration and sitting capacity to study. I usually study for 1 to 2 hrs. After that I get bored then I just keeps my books away so please suggest something. That increase my concentration.

Hi , Do'nt worry short term intervals are good for your studies. For improving your concentration at first you have to eliminate all the distractions from your study room. Try to take one task at a time. Our attention is limited, when you try to do several things at one time, then you necessarily have to divide your attention. Try to focus on the task at hand, if you are reading a book ask yourself how would you summarize it, and then try to recall it. Meditation is also helpful for improving your concentration. Thanks.

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs . If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break.

Dear , anxiety disorder symptoms appear to be concentrated on your upper torso. You may feel chest tightness, pain, shoulder and neck pain, palpitation etc. When the symptoms are intense, it could be panic attack. You need to address the underlying anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder is usually treated with the help of psychotherapy and life style changes. I request you to contact me for psychotherapy treatment and cure. Take care.

Parvon spas contains dextropropoxyphene, an opioid derivative. Given that you are taking 10-15 tablets/day, you have developed a dependence on it. You are suffering from the side effects of withdrawal on cessation. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction and they will help you with your problem.

Hello, smoking is one of the easiest & one of the most difficult habits to break because 1. Quitting cigarettes does not cause any immediate harm 2. Cigarettes are so easily available that one does succumbs into temptation of smoking just 1 more before stopping altogether. Regarding your question, easy way is decide a quit date 1 week from now & reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke to half from today. Secondly, you can purchase nicotex/quitsure park & suck type nicotine chewing gums to take care of your cigarette craving & substitute them for cigarettes. In addition, there are medications which help to reduce craving & get rid of smoking addiction. If you need them, get back to me after 1 week for next plan of action. Good luck.
