Hi doctor. Normally I don't believe in friendship from my childhood. In my graduation time I made one friend. We become close like brother but the thing is that he is taking me for granted. The problem is that because of this I am getting fear of losing him, depression, not getting hungry, no sleep n various thoughts are striking in mind. Even not getting interest in studies. What should I do?

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hi. You seem to be carrying the burden of the past for too long. Mistakes happen and its very human to make mistakes. The lessons learnt from mistakes is the only thing to be carried along, rest all has to be let gone. You may not have got an outlet to vent out and let go. To be living in the present, you need to let go of the past and begin living your life in the present, in the here and now. Make a priority list of all the important things relevant to you today and lay down a path to walk on towards your goal/s. In order to do this, you will first have to make peace with your past. You can consult a counsellor to help you. All the best.

I can not use my brain power, few does ago I can solve most of all problems from different maths, physics and chemistry and could easily understand what do I study, but for few days I can not do this things. How could I improve it?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all 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 Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Depression Treatment In Hindi - डिप्रेशन दूर करने के उपाय

Depression Treatment In Hindi - डिप्रेशन दूर करने के उपाय

मानसिक अवसाद उन बीमारियों में से है जो कई और बिमारियों को जन्म देती हैं. इसे आप डिप्रेशन, तनावया चिंता में डूबा रहना भी कह सकते हैं. दुर्भाग्य से इस बीमारी के शुरुवात में या तो हमें पता नहीं चल पाता है या फिर हम इस तरफ ध्यान नहीं दे पाते हैं. यदि हम मानसिक अवसाद के लक्षण की बात करें तो इसमें अनिद्रा, उदासी, वजन का अत्यधिक कम या ज्यादा होना, आत्महत्या या खुद को नुकसान पहुँचाने की कोशिश करना एकाग्रता में कमी इसका प्रमुख है. आइए इस बिमारी के उपचार के बारे में विस्तारपूर्वक समझें.

अवसाद की स्थिति और नींद का महत्व

1. नींद की कमी बिमारी का घर
यदि आप सोने में कोताही करते हैं या पर्याप्त नींद नहीं लेते हैं तो आप कई बीमारियों को आमंत्रित कर रहे हैं. कहते हैं न कि चैन से सोना है तो जाग जाइए. जब आपकी नींद पूरी नहीं होती है तो आपको कई बीमारियाँ जैसे कि याद्दाश्त कमजोर होना, उच्च रक्त चाप, आँखों में सुजन, कमजोरी, थकान, मोटापा, तनाव आदि अपना शिकार बना सकती हैं. इसलिए बेहतर यही है कि आप भरपूर नींद लेने को गंभीरता से लें और पर्याप्त नींद लें.
2. बच्चों में नींद की कमी का असर और अवसाद
किशोरों या बच्चों की मानसिकता पर पर्याप्त नींद न लेने का दुष्प्रभाव उनके आत्मविश्वास पर पड़ता है. अक्सर ऐसा देखा गया है कि आठ घंटे से कम नींद लेने वाले किशोर नशे या स्मोकिंग की चपेट में होते हैं. कई बच्चे इसके दुष्प्रभाव से डिप्रेशन में भी चले जाते हैं. ऐसा होने पर कई बार बच्चे उग्र भी हो जाते हैं. एक शोध में यह पाया गया कि प्रतिदिन 7 से 8 घंटे की नींद लेने वाले 4.5 घंटे से कम सोने वालों की तुलना में लम्बी उम्र जीते हैं. तो बच्चों को भी पर्याप्त सुलाएं.
3. नींद और वजन का संबंध
शोधकर्ताओं के अनुसार कम सोने वाले लोगों का वजन पर्याप्त नींद लेने वालों से ज्यादा होता है. ये भी पाया गया है कि पांच घंटे की नींद लेने वाले लोगों में भूख बढ़ाने वाला हार्मोन 15 फीसदी अधिक बनता है. लेकिन आठ घंटे की नींद लेने वाले लोगों में यह हार्मोन जरूरत के अनुसार ही बनता है. जाहिर है इससे आप मोटापे के शिकार होते हैं और अवसाद की तरफ बढ़ चलते हैं.
4. अवसाद, नींद और सेहत
ये तो आपने भी महसूस किया ही होगा कि जब आप गहरी नींद से सोकर उठते हैं तो आपको एक ताजगी का एहसास होता है. और पर्याप्त नींद न लेने पर दिमाग भन्नाया रहता है. दरअसल पर्याप्त नींद लेने पर हमारे शारीर में रोगों से लड़ने वाली कोशिकाएं भी ठीक तरीके से काम करती हैं. जिससे कि आप कई अनावश्यक बीमारियों से तो बचते ही हैं साथ में आपकी कार्यक्षमता में भी बढ़ोतरी होती है.

खान-पान भी अवसाद से बचाता है
ये भी देखा गाया है कि अपने खाने में कुछ चीजों को शामिल करके भी मानसिक अवसाद या डिप्रेशन से बचा जा सकता है. इसमें क्या क्या हो सकता है इसे देख लेते हैं-
1. काजू
अवसाद को ठीक करने में तंत्रिकातंत्र की भूमिका भी महत्वपूर्ण है. इसमें विटामिन बी प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाता है और ये विटामिन ही तंत्रिका तंत्र को ठीक रखता है. इसके साथ ही काजू आपके शरीर में ऊर्जा का स्तर बढ़ाकर आपको सक्रिय रखने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. काजू ये ये सभी गुण आपको डिप्रेशन से दूर रखेंगे.
2. अंडे
प्रोटीन के भण्डार अंडा में डीएचए भी पाया जाता है. आपको बता दें कि डीएचए पचास फीसदी अवसाद को ठीक कर सकता है. अंडा न सिर्फ अवसाद को ठीक करेगा बल्कि आपको निरोग रखने में भी मदद करता है.
3. सेब
सेब के फायदे तो सबने ही सुन रखे होंगे. तमाम पौष्टिक गुणों से भरपूर सेब आपके मानसिक स्वास्थ्य का भी ख्याल रखता है. इसमें पाया जाने वाले विटामिन बी, फास्फोरस और पोटैशियम मिलकर ग्लूटामिक एसिड का निर्माण करते हैं. ये एसिड मानसिक स्वस्थ्य ठीक रखता है.
4. डेजर्ट
अवसाद को दूर करने में चीनी की भी भूमिका देखी गई है. दरअसल इसके प्रयोग से शरीर के शुगर लेवल को एक नई ऊर्जा दी जाती है. आप चाहें तो इसके लिए चीनी से बने किसी भी खाद्य पदार्थ केक, डेजर्ट या जूस का इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं.
5. टोस्ट या जैम
मानसिक असाद से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए कार्बोहाइड्रेट का सेवन लाभकारी होता है. कई लोग तो इसके लिए ब्रेड पर जैम लगाकर भी खाते हैं.
6. आयरन युक्त भोजन
हमारे शरीर में आयरन की भूमिका बहुत महत्वपूर्ण होती है. लेकिन कई लोगों में आयरन की कमी होती है खासकरके लड़कियों में. तो ऐसे में इसका सबसे अच्छा तरीका है कि आपको आयरनयुक्त भोजन करना चाहिए. इससे आपमें आयरन लेवल तो ठीक रहता ही है, साथ में आपका मूड भी ठीक रहता है. इस तरह आप अवसाद से बाख जाते हैं. आयरन के लिए सबसे अच्छा स्त्रोत पालक है.
7. इलायची
आप खुद को तरोताजा रखने के लिए इलायची का भी इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. इसके लिए आपको बस इतना करना है कि इलायची के पिसे हुए बीज को पानी के साथ उबाल कर या चाय के साथ लें. इससे आपका मूड फ्रेश हो जाएगा.

ये पाँच तत्व भी आपको डिप्रेशन से बचाते हैं
आप डिप्रेशन से बचने के लिए उपरोक्त तरीकों के अलावा और भी कई चीजें कर सकते हैं. हम आपको कुछ बेहद महत्वपूर्ण तत्व बता रहे हैं जो आपको डिप्रेशन को दूर करने में मदद करेंगे.
1. आयोडीन
हमारे शरीर में आयोडीन के महत्व से तो आप परिचित होंगे ही. लेकिन क्या आप जानते हैं कि इसकी कमी से हमारा दिमाग ठीक से काम नहीं कर पाता है. हमारे दिमागी विकास के लिए जरुरी आयोडीन का सबसे आसान स्त्रोत आयोडीन युक्त नमक है. आयोडीन के लिए आप आलू, दही, लहसुन आदि का भी इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है.
2. ओमेगा थ्री
विशेषज्ञों के अनुसार ओमेगा थ्री के नियमित सेवन से हमारे दिमाग में न्यूरॉन से सेल्स की वृद्धि होती है. इसलिए इसे डिप्रेशन से बचने का सबसे अच्छा स्त्रोत माना जाता है. यदि ओमेगा थ्री के स्त्रोतों की बात करें तो मछली, सुखा मेवा, सरसों के बीज, सोयाबीन, गोभी, फल और हरी बीन्स आदि प्रमुख हैं.
3. जिंक
हमारे शरीर की कोशिकाओं में पाया जाने वाले जिंक की कमी से डिप्रेशन के अलावा और भी कई बीमारियाँ हो सकती हैं. इसलिए जिंक का नियमित सेवन भी जरुरी है. इसे हम मूंगफली, लहसुन, राजमां, दालें, सोयाबीन, बादाम, अंडे, बीज, मटर आदि से प्राप्त कर सकते हैं.
4. मैग्नीशियम
याद्दाश्त को बनाए रखने में मैग्नीशियम की महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका होती है. इसलिए इसकी कमी से याद्दाश्त कमजोर होने के साथ ही डिप्रेशन भी बढ़ सकता है. मैग्नीशियम हमें काजू, बादाम, पीनट बटर, अंजीर आदि खाकर मिल सकता है.
5. दूध और इसके उत्पाद
कहा जाता है कि दूध एक सम्पूर्ण पौष्टिक आहार है. तो ऐसे में शरीर में होने वाले पोषक तत्वों की कमी को हम दूध और इसके विभिन्न उत्पादों से पूर्ति कर सकते हैं. जाहिर है कुपोषित शरीर के अवसाद ग्रस्त होने की संभावना अधिक होती है.

अवसाद को दूर करता है म्यूजिक थेरेपी
जैसा कि आम तौर पर कहा जाता है कि संगीत हमें दुसरी दुनिया में ले जाता है. इस बात को शोधकर्ताओं ने भी माना है कि संगीत मूड को शांत और सक्रीय करने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. म्यूजिक थेरेपी से अवसाद दूर करने का आधार यही है. चूँकि अवसाद मानसिक भटकाव की तरफ ले जाता है और संगीत हमें एकाग्रचित होने में मदद करता है इसलिए संगीत के माध्यम से हम अवसाद का सफल उपचार कर सकते हैं. इससे हमें नींद भी गहरी आती है और हमारा शरीर पूरी तरह से रिचार्ज हो जता है.
