As such masturbation will not cause the above mentioned problems, but there may be certain psychological condition is making you to feel these problems. Try to control this habit as possible from you. Then try to have complete diet. Means eat proteins a lot and drink milk and have eggs also for 10- 15 days and get back.

The important sign in panic attack is the feeling that you cannot handle fear and you are using an extreme reaction to the fear. You cannot control panic attack but you can do two things: you can change your perception of the fearful stimulus and you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react in a panic. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Stage fear and this anxiety are both related to ear too. This is the number one fear of all people. Even the most successful speakers admit to this problem. In fact the first 90 seconds are most frightening. The heart beat races to doubles the normal: 144 times a minute. So you are advised to prepare a good opening sentence to launch you off to a good start. The fear is generally centered around rejection: am I good enough? Will people like me? Will people know more than me? Etc. A host of self-conscious comparisons that only make you feel inferior. When the whole world is in the same boat, take heart and learn some basic techniques to overcome this stage fright. Join a Toastmasters club in your town and develop your public speaking skills and experience. Also remember some little rules: look for some pleasant face in the audience, look over the audience, prepare yourself well, talk simply, understand that you can only talk on what you know not on some grand made-up design of yours, there are always others who are better than you, pray before you speak, and so on. Focus on the three areas of public speaking according to their importance: Presentation and appearance (20%), audience (30%), and content (50%). There are a lot more points but space constraints do not permit me to be more elaborate.

I am 17 years old boy. I am in class 12th as I am. Going to give my boards exam. I want to know that eating less food will effect on my brain. Eating less will cause less blood flow in brain. Will it cause weakness in my body and cause effect on my memory.

DPM, MBBS

Why would you want to eat less food? if you are planning to go on a diet for weight loss, eating less is not recommended. You need to eat the same amount, but reduce the fat and carbohydrate content. Increase the protein content. If you follow a very low or zero calorie diet then definitely your brain functions will be affected. Brain needs glucose to work. That comes mainly from carbs in the diet. Eating multiple (4-6 times) small meals is considered a healthy way to control your food intake.

What is work of proton pump inhibitors in human body?
What is sideffect of diazepam.
Proton pump inhibitors temporarily block the production of gastric acid in stomach in response to food and are helpful in acid peptic symptoms or reflux diseases. Diazepam is a benzodiazepine, along acting one. In different dosages as required it is used for anxiety, epilepsy, anti withdrawal management etc. Misuse and overuse or injudicious use of diazepam can cause dependence on the drug, overdose can cause inability to walk, giddiness, syncope and coma. Diazepam may cause dis inhibited behaviour in some individuals etc.

It is a psychological disorder. It needs medication based on patient condition. Medication is required as well as psychological counselling required. If patient is normal stage. Psychotherapy is enough. I think you take medication part only. Medication it will work on internal aspects. After medication also you may develop fear on particular disease means you need psychological counselling. In this case no need of alert faculties and etc. Psychotherapy and behaviour modification therapy will help to modify your thoughts. It is better to consult psychologist. No need of fear about it. You can spend with your family happily. You need to change your thought process. After medical treatment you may develop fear means you need psychological counselling. Psychological counselling is a permanent therapy. It modifies your total personality. Do not think too much about it. Better to spend most of the time with your family members. Share your thoughts and feelings with your family members. Be happy all the time. Be sociable. Be enjoy every movement of life. Ok all the best.

Is schizophrenia cure available with aruveda or homeopathy, pl advise with contacts?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No ma'am, schizophrenia in not curable in allopathy itself and so (I do not wish to sound negative about alternative medicines, and am a fond believer of them myself) I can only presume that there are no other treatments to cure it. I have however found a lot of difference when you combine medicine and psychotherapy, and you are cooperative for great success and somewhat full functionality. Please pursue this line of treatment. I know that even if you took alternative medicines, they do not disagree with regular allopathy.

Treatment for smoking and drinking varies according to the degree of addiction. Some medicines, nicotine patches, nicotine gum, lozenges etc should help tobacco craving. You, being a good loving and affectionate wife should be able to motivate him to quit smoking and drinking. Take care.

General Physician,
In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

Hi there ~ there are many ways to overcome depression. The symptoms of depression are the ones that usually are amenable to treatment. Easy to treat are the ones where you have missed out on the daily routines. Eat regular meals, drink enough water, exercise on a daily basis, sleep well and do not break the schedule. You know that you will ultimately get over the fact that you marks will not matter in the future but for the time being you need to take care of yourself and tide this crisis to go on forward and beat depression. Take care and have a lovely day! sincerely,

It is a psychiatric disease and Panic disorder is different from the normal fear and anxiety reactions to stressful events. Panic disorder is a serious condition that strikes without reason or warning. Symptoms of panic disorder include sudden attacks of fear and nervousness, as well as physical symptoms such as sweating and a racing heart.Underlying Causes of Panic Genetic Predisposition The first is that there is almost certainly a genetic predisposition to panic attacks. Some people are born likely to develop panic attacks under the right circumstances, and some people couldn't have a panic attack if you paid them. We're all born with a variety of innate tendencies. If you have panic attacks, this is one of yours. Anxious trends during childhood A second reason why people develop panic attacks is that as children, they may have grown up in an atmosphere which, for one reason or another, failed to teach them that the world was "their oyster", a safe place in which they could happily pursue their own enjoyment. Maybe there was an early death in the family, severe illness, or some other serious problem like alcoholism or divorce. Maybe the parents were themselves anxious and over protective, perhaps in response to their own anxiety disorder. Perhaps the child learned to spend too much time and effort taking care of others, trying too hard to please others, and feeling responsible for the happiness of others. A Response to the challenge of emerging adulthood The third reason why people develop panic attacks is that they often experienced a period of high stress and stressful changes in the year or so prior to the onset of the panic attacks. These might have been bad events, such as feeling trapped in a bad job or relationship, or experiencing the loss of family and/or friends. Or they may have had a lot of changes which weren't bad in themselves - finishing school, changing jobs, getting married, moving, buying/selling a home, having babies, etc. - but which had a cumulative stressful effect on the person to the point that he/she

I am 36 years male, I have taking medicine of depression for last 6 months but I am getting more aggressive day by day loose my temper very quickly. Please tell me what should I do. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your depression is anger related and can turn violent, if the emotion keeps piling on. When anger turns inwards, you will get depressed. If it is turned outwards as you are doing now, it will turn violent and aggressive. Neither is good for you. All feelings must be expressed. But when expressed, it must be done, appropriately. You must go for counseling as well, to get the best results. If there is too much anger, then do vigorous exercise every day: the energy of anger will be expended and you will not experience that rage and loss of control. Eventually, you need to express the feelings to the right person at the right time. Have you had this short fuse all your life? then I suspect that there may underlying issues of anger from your childhood that has to be dealt with. So it is all a pile up of pent up anger over a long time and is now causing havoc.

Continue treatment for BP. Try to stabilize your mood with exercise/ meditation/ prayers at home/ walking with your husband. Try to figure out with your husband as to why he is hurting you. No point in getting stressful or running away. Face it and be prepared for the worse. You cannot change anyone as you did not cause it/ you cant control it/ and you cant cure it/ only you change your attitude find some hobbies when lonely.

Always I can not confident for this completely that I can do this well or not. I also can not able to consider anything mainly whenever I something study or practice and ever I think that I could properly. Ever people appreciate me for my well done work regarding of all like my hobbies and on my work places same here. But ever so please tell me that how can I more confident on my self .

Homoeopathic medicine ACONITE NAP 1M ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops today night itself and forget this medicine now for 15 days P.L.30 .Ask the homoeopathic pharmacit to prepare thi medicine 2 drahm in 30 number globules and tart taking 4 tabs 3 timess daily for 15 days starting from omorrow. Report me after 15 days With some time and practice (this is not an overnight phenomenon), you too can be a self-confident person, both inside and out, whom others admire. 1. Stay away from negativity and bring on the positivity This is the time to really evaluate your inner circle, including friends and family. This is a tough one, but it's time to seriously consider getting away from those individuals who put you down and shred your confidence.Be positive, even if you're not feeling it quite yet. Put some positive enthusiasm into your interactions with others and hit the ground running, excited to begin your next project. Stop focusing on the problems in your life and instead begin to focus on solutions and making positive changes. 2. Change your body language and image This is where posture, smiling, eye contact, and speech slowly come into play. Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are a confident person. Smiling will not only make you feel better, but will make others feel more comfortable around you. Imagine a person with good posture and a smile and you'll be envisioning someone who is self-confident. Look at the person you are speaking to, not at your shoes--keeping eye contact shows confidence. Last, speak slowly. Research has proved that those who take the time to speak slowly and clearly feel more self-confidence and appear more self-confident to others. The added bonus is they will actually be able to understand what you are saying. Go the extra mile and style your hair, give yourself a clean shave, and dress nicely. Not only will this make you feel better about yourself, but others are more likely to perceive you as successful and self-confident as well. A great tip: When you purchase a new outfit, practice wearing it at home first to get past any wardrobe malfunctions before heading out. 3. Don't accept failure and get rid of the negative voices in your head Never give up. Never accept failure. There is a solution to everything, Low self-confidence is often caused by the negative thoughts running through our minds on an endless track. If you are constantly bashing yourself and saying you're not good enough, aren't attractive enough, aren't smart enough or athletic enough, and on and on, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You are becoming what you are preaching inside your head, and that's not good. The next time you hear that negativity in your head, switch it immediately to a positive affirmation and keep it up until it hits the caliber of a self-confidence boost. 4. Be prepared Learn everything there is to know about your field, job, presentation--whatever is next on your "to conquer" list. If you are prepared, and have the knowledge to back it up, your self-confidence will soar. 5. For tough times, when all else fails: Create a great list Life is full of challenges and there are times when it's difficult to keep our self-confidence up. Sit down right now and make a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and another list of all the things you are proud of accomplishing. Once your lists are complete, post them on your refrigerator door, on the wall by your desk, on your bathroom mirror--somewhere where you can easily be reminded of what an amazing life you have and what an amazing person you really are. If you feel your self-confidence dwindling, take a look at those lists and let yourself feel and be inspired all over again by you.
