Hello lybrate-user, Appreciate your concern for your mother. As you shared she feels lethargic and assuming she doesn't move much could be leading to some gastric issues. Believe me, a supportive family can do wonders to change the outlook and wellbeing of any individual. Set a proper schedule for her day .Let it be written clearly on a paper and displayed in her room. Don't give her much time alone to let her sink into bouts of lonliness. Take support of other immediate family members to keep her involved .Ensure warmth and care. Discuss things with her. Day to day events to invoke response. A healthy diet and companionship can do wonders to her wellbeingAll the best.

That stress affect my reproductive system?
Hi Mr. lybrate-user, The stress which you were suffering would not affect your reproductive system because you are too young to be prone for that, but if the stress is consistent then definitely at one stage will yes affect your reproductive system.

I have too much cold in winter days because of cold I have not to concentrate on my studies I am a student please contact me.

M.Sc - Psychology
Hello lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Com I can understand your concerns. As you suffer from cold you find it hard to concentrate on studies. It's common to feel that way alternatively you can approach a holistic method of moving you up. Try to take preventive home remedies before winter season so that you are less affected. Also try to motivate yourself by doing small tasks one at a time as you are finding it difficult to focus on the whole. Also join some yoga and exercise classes as it will help to build strong immunity to fight with the viral attacks as well as motivate you to feel active. All the best.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

I am suffering from stammering problem. Please suggest Is there any treatment to cure permanently.

Stammering and stuttering have an underlying psychological element that must be resolved. You need to meet a Clinical Psychologist, and a Speech Therapist to help you out. This is a long drawn out treatment over a few months.

Reliable indicators are of great help in the diagnosis of any disease. This fact assumes more importance in the diagnosis of mental illness because a clinician has to depend on interpretation of clues discernible from a patient’s behaviour, including emotional outbursts. Fortunately, researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine are reported to have identified, for the first time, a biological marker. Their study has been published in the journal EBioMedicine.

Researchers know that the XIST gene works overtime in female patients with mental illness. They also know that this gene inactivates one of the two copies of the X chromosome in cells that store genetic material. Keeping all this in view, they decided to focus on the identification of biomarkers for mental illness, which would, in turn, facilitate further research paving the way for the development of effective drugs.

The study was led by Xianjin Zhou, assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego School of Medicine and lead author. They carried out their study on 60 lymphoblastoid cell lines from female patients, most of whom were found with a family history of mental illness.

Results revealed that nearly 50 per cent of the female patients were found to have XIST gene and other genes related to the X chromosome. The team led by Zhou pointed out that a new treatment option for treating mental illness may be to reverse the abnormal activity of the inactive X chromosome in the patients.

The whole team is optimistic about the results, which have revealed the possibility of early diagnosis of mental illness with a simple blood test. Encouraged by the results, they intend to pursue their research, aimed at finding effective treatment options for mental illness.

I want to lose my health? Please give me valuable tips. How can mentally free also give information?
Thanks for the query. There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. Replace all processed foods in your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet. Eat smaller portions at every meal and avoid going back for seconds. Take a smaller scoop of rice,  half of a piece of chicken instead of a whole piece and one less egg in your morning omelet, for example. Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight. Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Store foods like chopped fruits and vegetables or cooked grains, legumes, eggs and meats in your refrigerator so you always have something to grab when you’re in a rush. Buy fresh vegetables and fruits from the grocery store if you forget to bring healthful food from home. When you can’t avoid dining at a restaurant, opt for a salad as a starter, and always ask for the dressing on the side. Clear soups, lean meats, seafood and grain-based dishes like roti, whole grain bread are other good choices. Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging. Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

Can Smoking Affect Your Heart?

MBBS, MD (Gen. Medicine), DM (Cardiology)
Cardiologist, Delhi
Can Smoking Affect Your Heart?

Smoking can affect your health in all respects, and it is no different when it comes to your heart. Smokers are almost twice as likely to have heart problems compared to individuals who do not smoke.

How does smoking cast an impact on your cardiac health?
Smoking increases the risk of developing various kinds of cardiovascular issues such as stroke and coronary heart disease. It damages the lining of the arteries which, in turn, paves the way for building up of fatty substances called atheroma which narrows down the artery. This may lead to heart attack, stroke, and angina.

Tobacco contains carbon monoxide which reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood. This indicates that the heart has to work harder for supplying the required amount of oxygen. Cigarettes also contain nicotine which stimulates the production of adrenaline. This instigates the heart to beat at a faster pace and raises the blood pressure.

The chemicals present in the smoke of tobacco can harm your blood cells and retard the normal functioning of the heart. When not inhibited, it can lead to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is an ailment in which a waxy material, termed as plaque builds up in the arteries and limits the flow of blood to different parts of the body.

When plaque builds up for a long span of time, it causes coronary heart disease, and you are likely to experience symptoms such as heart failure, chest pain, heart attack, arrhythmia and heart failure and even death.

Smoking is a major risk factor for another fatal ailment called the peripheral artery disease or PAD. PAD is a clinical condition where the accumulation of plaque in the arteries inhibits carriage of oxygen-rich blood to the head, different organs, and limbs.

With regular smoking, the blood is more susceptible to clotting which surges the risk of having a stroke or heart attack.

Is there any effect of second-hand smoking?
Second-hand smoking, also referred to as passive smoking means inhaling the smoke ejected while smoking. When a person is regularly exposed to smoke, he or she is likely to have low levels of good cholesterol, damaged heart tissues, and high blood pressure. Various researchers are of the opinion that second-hand smoke of tobacco is a viable cause of heart ailments in nonsmokers. This means, if you are a smoker, you are definite to harm the members of your surroundings.

Why should you quit smoking?
One of the best ways to decrease the risk of having cardiac ailments is to stop smoking. In case you have never smoked, you should never think of starting it for the same reason. You should also try to avoid second-hand smoke by avoiding going to a smoking zone. It would be a great idea to avoid the company of smokers for the periods when they are smoking.
Stay away from smoking for your heart health. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
