My daughter doing her MBA IN Canada is struggling with mental stress issues, maybe hormone related stress she is 31 - her stress is about being a support system for others but never getting the same back. She is unable to eat sensibly or do anything to distract herself! Anything I can do to help her, are medicines required?

Medicines may be required. Safe and effective medicines (one or two types, not more than that) can be given. Chronic stress related problems are best treated with medicines. The lay public far overestimates the side effects of medicines while underestimating the remarkable benefits it can have. In my opinion, it is not wise to delay this further and invite unnecessary complications. Some blood tests like hemoglobin and thyroid profile will also need to be done. Take care!

How to stop smoking and how to make other to stop smoking. What are it's advantage and disadvantage?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1.Yash,it was 16 when you sstarted smoking.Just think it yourself that was this the age to start smoking.This Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking .You just think how much money of your parents you have wasted till now. 2.Just ssee the poor people around you who cant make up for one time meals.Just think that if you were not ssmoking ,how many of them would you have fed during last 2 years and try to feel that happiness that you must have got and now you are deprived off. 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I uggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. 6.Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking. ALOM VILOM PRANAYAM daily for 15 minute any time during the day. Report after 30 days There is always written on every cigratte case that CIGRATTE IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH.It itself proves that we smoke only due to a habit or compulsion although understanding its after effects but reluctant to leave this monster habit.I dont think there is a single advantage of smoking cigratte apart from its primary action in a Habitual smoker that it creates mental alertness immediately after smoking.But disadvantages of smoking are countless like Ageing,Lung and mouth cancer,Breathing prolems,Resp.allergy like Asthma,Heart insufficiencies and many more.

Dear lybrate-user, mood stabiliser tablets are given for many years. Stopping them will cause a reappearance of illness. If you have started again taking tablets use some family planning method like condom to avoid pregnancy, after getting out of this episode of depression, discuss with your psychiatrist about planned pregnancy. He or she will help you to stop medication for few months, say 12th week of pregnancy and restart comparatively safe mood stabiliser after the first ultrasound of the baby at 11th week. Sometime she may ask you to take folic acid tablets also for few months of pregnancy to see that you get a normal child.

I am experiencing muscle twitching symptoms. I was a regular mild smoker but I quit since 0ct 20 2015. Then again on March 2 2016 and 15 May 2016 I smoked two cigarettes in a party. Soon after quitting the twitching problem disappeared gradually. As and when I smoke a cigarette the symptom reappear. Now I have resolved to quit smoking forever ang have been trying hard.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is too obvious that smoking does not agree with your constitution at all. Quitting is the best option especially sine there seems to be some nerve damage or reaction that is happening immediately. Stay with your resolution and you will be fine. You may not realise this but you have made a life-saving decision and adhered to it.

Depression adversely affects every aspect of our lives – including our relationships – and when one partner is depressed, the relationship may suffer badly. Depression can cause adverse effects on any activity that requires energy, spontaneity and good co-ordination – and that includes sex. And, sadly, lots of individuals who are depressed often appear to lose interest in sex. •In men, the general damping down of brain activity causes feelings of tiredness and hopelessness, which may be associated with loss of libido and erection problems. Some days will seem better than others. On your better days, try to make an effort to show love and appreciation to your partner. •Try to go for a walk every day, preferably with your partner. Walking not only gets you out in the fresh air, but, like other forms of exercise, it releases endorphins in the brain. These are 'happy' chemicals that rapidly elevate your mood. And there's considerable evidence to suggest that exercise can be as good for combating depression as any antidepressant. •Even during your saddest periods, try to spot happy moments like a bird singing or a new flower blooming in your garden. Try to train yourself to notice three of these heart-warming moments per day. •You may have an odd relationship with food while you're depressed (you could have little appetite or constantly comfort eat), but try to eat five pieces of fruit per day. This is a caring thing to do for yourself and is good for your physical and mental health. •Listen to music that matters to you. •Have faith that the depression will pass and that you will enjoy your life again. •Even if you don't feel like full-on sex, do make the effort to have a cuddle. If you are worried that cuddling will project you into full sex when you don't want it, just tell your partner that you're not feeling like having sex, but that you would really like to cuddle up. If you do this, you may both feel a lot better. Touch and closeness can keep a relationship. Regards,

Hi, I can understand your feelings. What ever symptoms you are facing is because of your bad experience. You are trying hard to overcome it. It is a very positive move of yours. Do not afraid of that guy and be firm in communication. It will take some time to be normal. Keep yourself busy. Eat healthy food and have proper rest. Do some physical exercise. It will release some good hormones so your mood will get elevated. You can change your phone number or just say him straight that you are not going to tolerate him anymore. Take help of some trusted person and share your feelings with him/her.

It may take years to get the problem solved by medicines but may take 2-3 months by surgical procedures in which they will relive the fibrosis at temporomandibular joint causing restrictions in opening mouth. The surgical treatment may cost you about 20,000 Rs by an cosmetic ENT surgeon.

Dear lybrate-user, exam stress is a category of performance anxiety. Due to the stress and anxiety involved, you will not be able to concentrate. You should be able to understand exams and prepare for it. Exams are not a fear factor. They just test your knowledge. If you have the knowledge, why worry about exams? I suggest you to see a psychologist for exam stress counseling. Take care.

Why You Can Get a Slipped Disc Problem?

FPM, DNB, DA, MBBS

Why You Can Get a Slipped Disc Problem?

Are you prone to slipped disc problem? + the ideal way to treat it

A slipped disc, also known as a prolapsed disc or herniated disc, is the term given to the phenomenon that occurs when a cartilaginous disc found between the vertebrae in the spine becomes slightly displaced or protrudes, thereby pressing on the nerves in the adjacent areas and causing back pain.
This happens when the soft inner part of the disc, known as nucleus pulposus, bulges out through a weakness in the exterior part of the disc. A prolapsed disc usually occurs in the lower region of the spine and can be of varying sizes. There might even be the development of inflammation around the disc in some cases.

Who is likely to get affected?
Most cases of herniated disc occur in patients between the ages of 30 and 50. The number of men affected is twice as many as the number of women.
Although the root cause of this problem is not yet known, there are a number of factors that may trigger it. These factors include working at a job that requires a lot of lifting, an occupation that involves remaining in a seated position for a long time, weight-bearing sports, obesity, smoking habits and increasing age.

Effective ways of treating the problem
The different methods that are commonly used to treat the problem are:

  • Medications - There are many different kinds of medicines that are effective in providing relief. These include painkillers, muscles relaxants, anti-inflammatory pills, etc.
  • Spinal injections - A number of spinal injections are used to treat slipped discs. The injection is done at the opening where the inflamed nerve roots are found and reduces pain, swelling and irritation in the area.
  • Radiofrequency ablation - This procedure makes use of an electrical current produced by radio waves to reduced pain and sensitivity in the affected area.
  • Ozone discectomy - As opposed to the surgical removal of the prolapsed disc, this new process makes use of an ozone-oxygen mixture that is injected into the spine to treat the problem. Many international studies have proved its superiority to traditional methods and surgeries.

Those affected by this problem are advised to keep exercising and continuing with their everyday activities as best as possible.

'Consult'.

There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it? The obsession and compulsive use are when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When one smokes pot, the body absorbs THC right away. (If he eats baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for the body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in the stomach before it enters the bloodstream). He may notice changes in his body right after he smokes. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: •Dizziness •Shallow breathing •Red eyes and dilated pupils •Dry mouth •Increased appetite •Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i. E. For example, you can see sounds and hear colors! If he is finding it very difficult to give it up on his own then admit him in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep himself clean forever. He will need to alter his lifestyle, change his friends, his haunts, his habits, etc. He must learn to have fun in clean ways. He must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally he must be able to handle his feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach him about emotions and how to handle them.

These can be symptoms of depressive illness or anxiety disorder.

I suffer from body ache, after minor work, pains persist. Legs always have pain.
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.

Hello- these symptoms are associated with irregular digestion as pitta dosha after meals moves toward the heart and thus causes anxiety and palpitation. There is no role of anti-depressants and psychotic medication in this as they provide symptomatic relief but worsens the conditions during next episode, they also have ill effects on your central nervous system by making it slow. Use these safe ayurvedic medicines- a) prabhakar vati 1 tab twice daily after meals. B) pitta shekhar ras 1 tab twice daily. C) manas mitra vatakam 1 tab use sos.
