Why all religions prohibit alcohol if it is good for health ? Those who drink say that it is the best enjoyment and stress buster, then why doctors never prescribe it ? I am not a religious bigot, I just was to know the scientific position. What is the moderate quantity ? Personally, it is my experience that any drink makes us dull and less alert, whereas I like to be always alert except in sleep. I have seem that those who drink regularly lose their conscience at sublets level which they themselves realize. Even if alcoholic drinks provide temporary enjoyment, problems resurface as soon as effect is over. Please clarify the confusion.

You are absolutely right that after the effects of the alcohol are over, the demons coma back and sometimes with a vengeance! Not all religions prohibit alcohol consumption: they prohibit drunkenness. The clear evidence from science is that an average man who keeps himself fit can have two drinks a day, and a woman one drink a day, and for some reason, it is good to lower LDL, the bad cholesterol. The reason even doctors are afraid to share this information is that people can, in the guise of this finding, drink in excess and never know when to stop. Alcohol is a CNS depressant and can lower your alertness and delay your responses. On the other hand, that same influence relaxes you and lightens your burdens to ease some stress. However, it is the excess consumption and the loss of control that invites so much trouble.

Hi there ~ Increase Your Running Stamina with Interval Training Use interval training. There are several benefits to interval training that will help you get the most out of your runs, and increase your stamina.[1] Improve cardiovascular capacity. Endurance running can take wind out of you. By using the interval training, you'll increase your anaerobic capacity (oxygen-depleting). And when you combine this with aerobic capacity (oxygen-building with easy runs and long runs), these will end up making you faster. Burning calories. Bursts of energy (the high-intensity part of interval training) will increase the amount of calories you burn. This is true even for relatively short bursts. It adds interest to your running routine. It may seem a small thing, but boredom with your normal running routine can make it much harder to stay motivated. Perform steady intervals. This is the easiest way to incorporate interval training. You simply alternate equal periods of high and low-intensity running. Start with a ten to fifteen minute warm-up. Start with a rapid walk followed by a slow jog, picking up speed at the end of the warm-up to break into a full run. This will make sure your body is properly warmed-up before you begin the intense speed work If you are first starting out doing intervals, you need to train your body to get used to the hard intervals. Run at high speed for one minute followed by two minutes of slow running or walking. Repeat these intervals six to eight times. Do this for several weeks until you feel comfortable with the rest. Then lower your recovery/rest time by 30 seconds until you are running 50/50 burst (such as one minute burst followed by one minute rest). Make sure you and your body are ready to increase the intensity of the faster pace intervals and reduce your rest/recovery period before you reduce the rest/recovery time. End with a fifteen to twenty-five minute cool-down. Ease from a run to a light jog, and then gradually slow to a walk towards the end of the cool-down period. Use pyramid interval training. Pyramid intervals start with short bursts of high intensity and then build up so that the longest period of high-intensity training is in the middle of your workout. Then, you gradually pull back to the shorter burst of intensity before completing your cool down. This is somewhat more complex than steady intervals, and you may want to use a stopwatch to maintain your times. Warm up for ten to fifteen minutes. As described above, begin with a rapid walk followed by a light jog, picking up speed at the end of the warmup so that you are running at high intensity at the end of the warmup period. Run for 30 seconds at high intensity. Then, run at low intensity for one minute. Continue as follows: 45 seconds high, one-minute, fifteen-second low. 60 seconds high, one-minute, thirty-second low. 90 seconds high, two minute low. 60 seconds high, one-minute, thirty-second low. 45 seconds high, one-minute, fifteen-second low. 50 seconds high, one minute low. Finish up with a twenty-minute to thirty-minute cool down, ending at a comfortable walk. NOTE--> When you start out any interval training program, you need to make sure your body is adjusted and ready to start it. Doing too much too soon can lead to injuries. Just like when you are building up your mileage, you don't just build up. You gradually build up. IF you are pointing to a specific race, you do longer intervals with longer rest several months before the race. As the race approaches, you increase the intensity and shorten the recovery. Do variable intervals. If you play sports like tennis in addition to running, you know that speed and stamina requirements vary according to the conditions of the game. Variable intervals help you to mix up short and long high-intensity intervals in an unpredictable pattern, which more closely mimics the irregular bursts of speed that are part of typical playing conditions. Warm up for ten to fifteen minutes of easy running. Mix it up. Run for two minutes at high intensity and then jog slowly for two-minutes, thirty-seconds. Run at top speed for 30 seconds and then jog for 45 seconds. Mix up your intervals at random. Just make sure that you rest for longer periods after longer high-intensity intervals than you do for short bursts. When starting out, keep your rest periods slightly longer until your body is ready to shorten the rest intervals. Cool down for fifteen to twenty-five minutes. Use the interval setting on a treadmill. When you run intervals on a treadmill, the machine mixes up both the speed and the incline, presenting you with new and unpredictable challenges. Just make sure to warm up and cool down afterward if these periods aren't built into the interval training program. Add weight training to your running. Weight training increases your running economy, which means that you use oxygen more efficiently during your run. Try doing free weights, machines or other strength training exercises three times per week. Do high-powered bike intervals. Pedaling on a high-tension exercise bike setting works your leg muscles even more than running uphill, without the impact on your joints. While you pedal on an exercise bike, gradually increase the tension until you can barely move the wheel. Stand up and do intervals of pedaling as fast as you can. Rest and lower the tension between intervals. For example: Stand and pedal at high tension for 30 seconds. Then sit, lower the tension and pedal more slowly for 1 minute. Keep alternating between standing and pedaling at high intensity and sitting and pedaling at low intensity for 1 minute. You can also perform pyramid intervals of 30, then 45, then 60, then 90 seconds. Then, bring it down by doing 60, 45 and then 30 second intervals. Be sure to do the lower-intensity seated pedaling between the high-intensity intervals. Sign up for a spinning class—the instructor will guide the class through a prepared set of pedaling exercises that will dramatically increase your stamina. Swim some laps. You can either swim as a break after a hard workout or simply include some swimming to change up your routine. Swimming has the added advantage of working your upper body muscles, which are typically underdeveloped in runners Increase your mileage by 10 percent per week. For example, if you run 2 miles (3.2 km) per day, then add 2⁄10 mile (0.3 km) to your daily run for a week. Continue adding 10 percent to your run to increase your stamina. But make sure to alternate your training. For example, if you run 20 miles (32 km) a week, you will increase it to 22 miles (35 km) the next week. But the week after that, bring your mileage back down thus allowing your body to adapt (so run maybe 18-20 miles). Then the week after that, take it up to 25 miles (40 km) a week, followed by reducing your mileage to 21–23 miles (34–37 km) then following week. Gradually build up your running. The peak mileage you pick depends on the race you would like to do.

If you keep falling in love with any girl and have sexual feelings for her, that means you are a hormonally active male. Having sexual feelings for age appropriate females at your age is completely acceptable. Just in case if you feel your likings are much more than normal you may do a serum testosterone levels and serum thyroid profile to rule out any hormonal imbalances. Also if you feel your urge, thoughts or feelings to have sex keep ruminating in your mind always, you should consult a psychiatrist for the same.

It looks like you are having a particular situation induced guilt. It can be made better by taking counselling. If it is not any situation induced one then it could be obsession. To differentiate you can take professional help.

What you are experiencing is called illness anxiety and may take the form of a disorder called hypochondriasis. In this disirder, a person may feel fear or anxiety of getting a disease without any basis. Like in your case too. You need to think rationally that touching saliva may not cause rabies. Fear of disease has occupied your thoughts. For that you need to see how rabies is spread. Then you will understand where you are mistaken. This knowledge will help you to reconsider your beliefs and help you in relieving fear. You need to just start believing that your idea of disease may be wrong and without basis. Only then you will b able to see the contradictory evidence. Otherwise you will always try to reassure yourself of having a disease.

Pl advise whether oxetol 600 tab for Bipolar Disorder can be taken by chewing. Does swallowing or chewing it makes any difference. If so, what difference does it make.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Chewing chewable tablets may help faster absorption of the drug. There are chewable tabs which can be chewed but non chewable enteric coated tabs have to be swallowed as they should not come into contact with gastric acid and should directly reach intestines. Yu check your tables is enteric coated or film coated which can be chewed but bitter taste may be troublesome.

My mother is suffering from depression and some form of psychotic disorder from the past 10 years , she used to talk to herself, doing arguments with my father on issues that didn't even existed. We took her to many doctors and her condition cured very much but still she can't get somethings out of her head (sometimes I feel like she has brainwashed herself) and still fights with my dad due to which my father became an alcoholic and our family conditions are also not good as we are 3 sisters and 1 brother, thinking about this lately has made me depressed. Please advice me what to do as I am also not doing great in life.

So sad you are able to use lybrate, but haven't understood your mother's illness. Based on what you said, she is suffering from schizophrenia, a major mental disorder. One needs to understand the disorder, take continuous treatment, even then some deficits might be there. Your father should have been supportive, giving treatment to her and taking care of the kids, and not going for alcohol dependence (which is rationalization). Understand your mother s illness and giving her continuous treatment, if your psychiatrist is not able to bring significant improvement get a second opinion.

Dear , amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant. It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression. I am sure the medicine was prescribed by a psychiatrist because your mother needed such a treatment. The medicine is not harmful for her. Work with your psychiatrist for proper care and cure. No self judgement. Take care.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If you are anxious for any reason or stressed, your memory will tend to fail you. Meet with a counselor and sort out the stress. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear, anger is an emotion. Emotions comes when we are frustrated due to something which we do not expect. You are talking about stress. In that case, your anger could be due to stress. Why do you get stressed? what are the reasons for your anger and grustrations? if you are able to explain them, you will be able to manage them. Remember, when an emotion comes, you need to vent it out, do not suppress. But if you learn to adjust with that situation, you never get emotional. God bless you. Take care.

All About Panic Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
All About Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is a serious condition that can strike without any reason or warning and the symptoms last for about 10 minutes, such as; a fear for imminent death or losing control, chills, numbness of toes or fingers, stomach ache problem or nausea, trembling, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing.

Over time, a person with panic disorder develops a constant fear of having another panic attack, which can affect daily functioning and general quality of life.

Is it a heart attack or a panic attack?

Most of the symptoms of a panic attack are physical, and many times these symptoms are so severe that people think they are having a heart attack. In fact, many people suffering from panic attacks make repeated trips to the doctor or the emergency room in an attempt to get treatment for what they believe is a life-threatening medical problem. While it’s important to rule out possible medical causes of symptoms such as chest pain, heart palpitations, or difficulty breathing, it’s often panic that is overlooked as a potential cause—not the other way around.

What are the causes behind Panic Disorder?

Although the exact causes of panic attacks and panic disorder are unclear, the tendency to have panic attacks runs in families. There also appears to be a connection with major life transitions such as graduating from college and entering the workplace, getting married, and having a baby. Severe stress, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or job loss can also trigger a panic attack.

Panic attacks can also be caused by medical conditions and other physical causes. Panic Disorder usually begins during late adolescence and early adulthood and is twice as common with women as compared to men.

How can Panic Disorder be treated?

  1. Psychotherapy- It is a type of counseling wherein trained professionals assist people by discussing strategies for comprehending and stabilizing this disorder.

  2. Cognitive Behavioral Theory- Cognitive behavioral theory aims at identifying possible triggers of panic attacks and helps one recognize and change their thought patterns and behaviors that stimulate such behavior.

  3. Medication- Anti-depressant medicines are used to cure panic disorders, such as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI), medications for reducing anxiety and certain cardiovascular medications such as beta-blockers to cope with situational anxiety.

Self-help Tips-

When it comes to panic attacks, professional treatment and therapy can make a big difference. But there are many things you can do to help yourself, too:

  1. Learn about panic, read up on anxiety, panic disorder, and the fight-or-flight response experienced during a panic attack.  

  2. Avoid smoking and caffeine.

  3. Learn how to control your breathing.

  4. Practice relaxation techniques regularly like Yoga and meditation.

Dea, you are 24 years and you should have the logical approach towards this problem than emotional approach. Logical thinking settles the relationship down. You are still worried because you still hope to get her. That is over. If you don't realize it now, you may be requiring psychiatric treatment in the future. Grow up, dear. Take care.
