How to reduce body pains ?

How to reduce body pains ?
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, 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. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. 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. Welcome to lybrate. Nervousness is anxiety disorder and anxiety disorder can happen to anyone irrespective or age, sex or demography. 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. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness 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 need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Handjob has disadvantage or not.
Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage for whatever reasons it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

My son  is a 17  years slim boy but he behaving like a girl. But he is physically fit. He has no other problems.
Nothing to worry sir. Whether it is male or female, we generally call them a child. It has a practical implication. Your son is just transforming from his childhood-boyhood-adoloscent-adult. In some children the transformation may be slow because of lack of role models of their same-role parent or significant others or spending more time with members of opposite sex. Hormonal influences may play a little role here. By the time he becomes a college student, there may sex-appropriate behaviours develop. You can deliberatetly induce him to make changes in his mannerisms without hurting him.

You can do meditation, it lets you meet with yourself & gives you inner peace. Understand yourself, try to rule out your problems. And write it down. Think of positive solution for each problem, change your attitude towards it and go for change within yourself. Sometimes, negative thoughts appear due to circumstances, hormonal changes and many other reasons. Its ok to have negative thoughts at times, just ignore it and involve yourself in something creative or productive work.

Dear lybrate user. Many of the trading high protien powders in the market are having steroids mixed with them which predisposes a person for depression. As you already had an episode of depression in the past, you be cautious of what that powder contains as ingrediants. Spirulina in pure form has no such interactions.

Drinking alcohol while taking antidepressants is generally not advised because alcohol can make depression worse. It can also increase the side effects of some antidepressants, such as drowsiness, dizziness and co-ordination problems. Therefore, it’s best to avoid drinking alcohol if you're taking antidepressants, particularly if you're going to drive or operate machinery.

I am gone to depression from 1 year. About think my past situations. How can I get got of it? Any solution.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches.

Hi lybrate-user, panic attacks can be cured and the sooner you seek help, the better. With treatment, you can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of panic and regain control of your life. I suggest you to go to a professional asap with somebody close. Meanwhile - Move your body frequently—don't sit for more than an hour Learn to breathe slowly and deeply and don't hold your breath Stay closely connected to supportive family and friends Allow for relaxation to be a part of your daily routine Reduce your intake of alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine Get the amount of restful sleep that you require.

You should take mom to see a doctor and determine whether she has depression or schizophrenia and then get the right treatment for the condition. Dad is not doing anyone any favors by drinking as a solution and must seem in control of the situation. If mom is a passive smoker, are you suggesting that dad smokes too? The passive smoking is not the problem in this situation for mom. There are more serious concerns and you people must seek professional help and soon too. If mom has schizophrenia, then this involves long term treatment and a lot of adjustment from the others. Anyone else becoming dysfunctional or is using inappropriate behaviors to cope with the situation are all adding to the woes.

Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40

Dear , you should be able to distinguish between clinical depression and disappointment. Disappointment also manifests symptoms that resembles depression, including sleeplessness. Were you disappointed in the near past? I think one or two telephone counseling sessions with me should provide you with insight to your problem and tips to over come it. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling session. Take care.
