I would like to know who can provide proper medication for my wife who's in to Mania/Bipolar depression in Mumbai and around Suburb area? Few symptoms are as follows: I think she is into "Psychotic depression" as I read from one of the forums and especially if you read some of her recent signs what she is going through: 1. Give all money to beggars, kinners. And other old people who's asking for money 2. She thinks she is holding Shiva so she keeps yelling on family members all time 3. She thinks she bought our rental apartment, bought an Audi, and got 500+ crores with me 4. She listen to 3-4 particular songs and keep repeating them the whole day/ night 5. Doesn't want to sleep 6. 3-4 AM starts washing cloths 7. She doesn't care even our bedroom is messed up 8. Talks the whole day even with a strangers 9. Stops listening/ keeping her self away from all closed family or friends, and she gets super hyper if one of us try to say something 10. No fear of public and she doesn't feel embarrassed herself even walking with bare feet 11. Started putting everything on Facebook (in real life she doesn't that) 12. Broke 2 of her mobiles and then couldn't remember.Please tell sir .

Dear s user, thank you for writing to lybrate. I understand your concern about treatment of your wife. Elevated mood, grandiosity (claiming power, wealth, supreme identity, knowledge), diminished need for sleep, excessive talking or pressured speech, racing thoughts or flight of ideas in mind, clear evidence of distractibility, increased level of goal-focused activity at home, excessive pleasurable activities or spending too much often with painful consequences all are symptoms of manic episode of bipolar mood disorder, severe with psychotic symptoms. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist who has indoor treatment facility. She requires hospitalization and indoor management. When patients with severe mania with psychotic symptoms are brought to my hospital, I hospitalize them. I give them medications like lithium carbonate, olanzapine and lorazepam. With availability of latest brief pulse and ultra brief pulse ect devices, electroconvulsive therapy (ect) is a safe and effective biological treatment which improves mania rapidly. I also recommend ect for her. She will definitely improve with treatment. I recommend treatment earliest. Warm regards.

Hi I'm very dejected, feeling strength less. Not interested. Not following routine. All this since two years.

You could be depressed. Can you identify with what happened two years ago that has led to this change? it is very important that you get into a routine by which I mean you need to follow a disciplined lifestyle. Please visit with a counselor first and that person will check how intense your situation is and decide whether you need medication also. Whatever happens, do not discontinue your therapy with the counselor. You must also work on your emotions and learn to express them appropriately. I suspect you have some deep-rooted anger that needs to be dealt with. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings. Don? t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Get into a healthy routine, and do some fixed activities that are interesting, and involve people in your life every day.

When under a lot of tension and stress I usually collapse for some seconds what should I do?

Hi, Try deep breathing exercise. Set aside relaxation time. Include rest and relaxation in your daily schedule. Don’t allow other obligations to encroach. This is your time to take a break from all responsibilities and recharge your batteries. Do something you enjoy every day. Make time for leisure activities that bring you joy, whether it be stargazing, playing the piano, or working on your bike. Keep your sense of humor. This includes the ability to laugh at yourself. The act of laughing helps your body fight stress in a number of ways. All the best :) Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi doctors, from last 2 weeks I am undergoing lot of depression (I feel). There are certain thought which cross my mind everyday. And every single minute. I couldn't stop thinking, while I want to. Even while sleeping, thoughts are going in mind. Sometimes I couldn't sleep and feel flurry. Sometimes heartbeat rises and drop down. Feel exhausted long breaths and if I eat anything it get omitted from body. Rest I am taking glucoses daily to avoid weakness.

MD - Psychiatry

It seems most likely to be a Obsessive Compulsive disorder, with secondary depression, wherein recurrent intrusive thoughts come against a person s own will. It is due to altered serotonin transmission in areas of brain (mind) and can be easily treated by any psychiatrist. Consult one. All the best.

Hi, I have a 19 month old daughter. She is always throwing tantrums and gets upset over small things. She cries a lot when we don't give her whatever she desires and eventually has her way. I don't want to spoil her and need help to understand her psychology and control her behavior.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is the terrible twos. The child was once the center of the world and has to now adjust to the fact that you are going to have to meet some of your own needs before hers. She will not be able to take it for some time. You need to set boundaries and let the child know that she will not be neglected but she must develop a little patience. She will throw tantrums to force the attention from you and she will try to control you too. Help her tide over this phase without rejecting her. For example, you can tell her to stop crying when she wants something until you are available or finished doing whatever you are doing. She can cry a little but do not allow her to whine or holler for too long. She will also learn anger management at a child level with these types of behaviors. Don?t ever deprive her of love. As this process unfolds, she will develop good self-control and will be a fabulous child as time flies by. Later on you will also find it easy with her for this worthwhile investment. It may last for a year maximum, if handled well.

Getting Over Anxiety With Homeopathy

Getting Over Anxiety With Homeopathy

It is normal to feel nervous before an interview or be anxious about certain things, but letting that fear take over your life is not normal. If your worries and stress interfere with day-to-day life, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Fear not, this is treatable with homeopathy. 

Here are a few homeopathic remedies to help calm an anxious person:

  1. Kali Phosphoricum: Kali Phosphoricum is potassium phosphate that helps calm people when overwhelmed by anxiety attacks. This is suitable for people who are easily stressed, over sensitive, insecure, irritable and despondent. It also helps deal with the after effects of grief and fright. Physical ailments such as fatigue, dullness and lack of energy that are a result of anxiety can also be treated with this biochemic salt. 
  2. Aconite Napellus: Aconite Napellus is made from a purple flowering plant by the same name. It has a number of uses, primary among which is to control anxiety. This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for sudden, intense anxiety attacks and for post traumatic anxiety. It also helps deal with after effects of anxiety such as memory weakness, restlessness, oversensitivity and spells of rage. 
  3. Argentum Nitricum: Argentum Nitricum is also known as nitrate of silver. This is helpful in cases where anxiety makes a person insecure and unsure of what to do. When you're anxious, you are likely to crave for something sweet and feel very hot. Both these are cyclic symptoms of anxiety, and can worsen the situation, if not dealt with. However, Argentum Nitricum helps calm the digestive effects of sugar and cool the body to keep anxiety levels in check. 
  4. Arsenicum Album: Arsenicum Album is a constitutional remedy that can treat both chronic and acute problems. This works well on people who are worried about safety and security. If issues like health, money and break-ins are the cause of your anxiety, this homeopathic remedy is ideal for you. It also helps deal with restlessness. 
  5. Calcarea Carbonica: This is a homeopathic remedy made from the middle layer of sea shells that has a number of applications. When it comes to anxiety, Calcarea Carbonica is well suited for people who are scared of change and over controlling. This anxiety is accompanied by excessive sweating due to any exertion and stubbornness. Such people are also often afraid of animals and of the dark and get easily confused. One of the biggest advantages of homeopathy over allopathic treatment is the absence of side effects when taken in low doses. 

However, even homeopathic medication can have side effects when taken in high doses. Therefore, it is a good idea to consult a doctor before self medicating.

In order to prevent tension headaches, you need to reduce your anxiety. The first thing you need to do is make sure that you understand your headaches are a result of anxiety. For those with severe anxiety, or that suffer from panic attacks, it's not uncommon to get a rush of anxiety when you suffer from a headache, or any kind of weird sensation in your head. For example, a quick, sharp, shooting pain in the head that happens in a moment and leaves quickly can easily be caused by anxiety, but has a tendency to trigger anxiety attacks in those with panic disorder. You need to take time to convince yourself of this thought, because one of the main issues with tension headaches is that the fear it's something worse leads to further stress and further tension. In addition, you need to follow it up with anxiety reduction strategies: •Make sure that you're exercising, eating healthy, and drinking plenty of water. Poor eating habits and inactivity genuinely lead to more anxiety, and this may easily be contributing to your anxiety and headaches. •Learn anxiety reduction strategies for before your anxiety is out of control. Tension headaches can be stopped if they're stopped when the headaches are mild. As soon as you start feeling stressed, start deep breathing or progressive muscle relaxation to gain more control over the amount of stress you experience. •Always try to get enough sleep. Sleep is one of life's main coping strategies, and a lack of sleep contributes to further stress, and further eye strain (both of which lead to more tension headaches. Finally, you'll need to figure out how your anxiety is affecting you and what steps can be taken to cure it completely. If you have any further query feel free to contact. Regards, Sukanya Biswas.

Sir I smoke weed joint only on weekend is it will harm me or I can continue with it? I studied on internet dat smoking weed is not harmful as compare to others?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The problems with addictive substances like weed is that over time your tolerance for it will develop and you will need more of he substance to get the same effect. So there is no guarantee that you can stick with this control. Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. 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 is when you become addicted to the substance. Now we all spoke the same language: we can stop whenever we want, it is not addictive, it is fun after all, there are so many medical benefits etc. All meant to justify the consumption. There are so many other healthy ways to be creative or to stimulate the creativity in you; and there are so many ways to ‘open’ your mind. Why choose the easy way out when it is a chemical way out? 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 you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat a baked good or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. 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!!! Please discontinue soon and live healthily until the scientific world comes up with concrete benefits, if an, about smoking weed.

I drink coffee everyday morning. I start my studies from 5 o clock and I drink 4 to 5 cups of coffee. Is drinkinging this many coffee bad for my health.

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Drinking a cup or two throughout the day can be relaxing, but this much is bad for you. Coffee and tea are dehydrating and addictive. Whenever you have an urge to have coffee, have a glass of water and have some fruit or light snack instead. That would have a better impact and help you concentrate better, without harming. Having this much coffee actually kills your appetite.

Sir I got nervous usually in any little problem. Usually got depress and it effects digestive system. Feel vomiting. Unwillingness for food. And at last week ness affect for long run. Although I back and recover in few days but it happen usually. Please suggest what should do.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Our body is linked to our mind and whenever we are emotionally disturbed, some part of the body which is weak already will get affected. You have very rightly connected your emotional state to your digestion. For nervousness, I suggest that you undergo counselling sessions to feel more confident from within and in control of yourself and the situation. The counsellor will help you to vent out whatever you are going through in a non judgemental and therapeutic space which is aimed at recovery from the stress and learning practical tips to handle stress better without feeling nervousness. Meanwhile some general tips foryou: 1. Keep in mind that you have some abilities and capabilities. If you are doing any work out of your comfort zone, then it's possible that you win feel nervous. All humans go through this and it is normal. But what helps to come out of nervousness and perform the job, is a core belief that I am capable and worthy of doing this job and I know how to do this job. If you don't have the knowledge then it is best to learn what is needed and then attempt the job. Eg. A receptionist must know how to type and answer phone calls. Thus it is important to know these skills before attempting to take this role. 2. Don't be afraid to make mistakes: all humans make mistakes even if they have been doing a particular work for many years. This is again human nature and tendency. So don't be hard on yourself and be ready to make mistakes. The best way is to learn from your error of judgement so that you don't do the same things next time. You will get hands on experience and know different ways of doing the same thing as well. People who succeed only make number of mistakes. Without making mistakes, nobody has yet succeeded. 3. From depressed I think that you feel disappointed in yourself. Please don't label yourself as depressed because disappointment is a normal emotion and nobody is immune to it. Life is dull of ups and downs. Your job is to bounce back and be ready to take the challenge again. The failure doesn't define you as a person. Failure and success are one part of life and you are much more than that. You might have not succeeded in one attempt. But you can make more attempts or try something new. There is no end to scope of exploration and learning. 4. Exercising regularly and eating light food full of lean proteins, complex carbs, good fats is very important for physical and mental health. Get your vit b 12 and vit d3 levels checked and if it's low then eat foods which will up this level or take supplements. Exercising is known to release natural and mood uplifting neuro transmitters to help feel good and confident about your self. And there are numerous health benefits including better digestion.
