Ask him to undergo a 14 day course of shirodhara & start doing meditation daily. This is the best stress buster. Start taking milk & ghee daily, exercise daily, have good nutritious food, sleep early are some other things that he must follow.

My sister 36 year old never go out anywhere she doesn' t have any confident herself she doesn' t have any interest in life she had face rejection in love life, she doesn' t want to go to doctor. She says she is ok. What to do please advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Her withdrawing is not at all a good sign. You can tell her that, if she is okay, she should be able to come out too. She is trying to brush you off. Now there are several options to consider doing: bring home a lot of people as friends, include the relatives also. If you bring her friends home, it will be ideal. She will find it difficult to ignore them or not to be hospital to them. If she was or is working, invite those colleagues too. As she gets comfortable with meeting people, she will gradually get out of her lack of confidence in relating to people. Organize parties, meetings, spiritual talks, get-togethers, functions, and prayer meetings at home, regularly and frequently, to literally bombard her with a social life, almost domesticated. This will have a telling effect over time. You have got to be patient, and give her some room. I don? T know the details of her love-life to comment on it but she has to move on and meet people to find another one to love? She was the loving kind once upon a time! In the meantime you could get a pet that you know she will like and let her only interact with it. Caring for the pet alone will be a full-time task, if she buys into it, fully.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

My brother always fear of water. He is 28 years old.Please do help

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, Aquaphobia is a persistent and abnormal fear of water. Aquaphobia is a specific phobia that involves a level of fear that is beyond the patient's control or that may interfere with daily life. People suffer aquaphobia in many ways and may experience it even though they realize the water in an ocean, a river, or even a bathtub poses no imminent threat. They may avoid such activities as boating and swimming, or they may avoid swimming in the deep ocean despite having mastered basic swimming skills. This anxiety commonly extends to getting wet or splashed with water when it is unexpected, or being pushed or thrown into a body of water. Psychologists indicate that aquaphobia manifests itself in people through a combination of experiential and genetic factors. Treatment of options are limited. Desensitization therapy could be of help. Please post a detailed private question to me. Take care.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ Problems with voice are usually related to anxiety and using voice for more time and with higher pitch than normal. If voice rest does not help, I can certainly help with medications to treat your anxiety to restore you voice back. I am sure this will help. I hope you can pay online to book a private and confidential appointment to be able to move forwards with the treatment options.

No, he does not need a psychiatrist. If you can, talk to him openly about what he thinks about death in general. Find out if he is scared of death and what about it scares him. It must be hard for him to live every single moment after entering into 84th year, because of the prediction. Discuss with him about his belief on predictions, and has he experienced that predictions can gone wrong. Also very tactfully discuss with him, what is the point in dying every moment under the fear when death is certain for everyone. Encourage him to enjoy life to the fullest. Also find out if something else is bothering him. If he is open about his feelings discuss how he would like to settle things after his death. All this may sound little nasty, but if you can make him talk about his worries, it will help him. All the best.

On 4th April 2015 I got an Epilepsy attack in morning around 5 A.M. My wife told me that whole body got folded and after Epilepsy I was feeling vomiting issues. After 5 days I realized that some sound is coming from my mind or Ear I do not know but it is coming continuously. Till then I have contacted many Neuro /ENT .Some one says its Tinnitus and I have started medicine. Epilepsy : Encorate Chrono 500 MG two times (Regularly). For Tinnitus : Bilovas and rejunex cd. Some of my friends have told that you are not taking correct medicine for Epilepsy so you are hearing this sound as an side effect. I am not sure because all 3 Neuro doctors have prescribed me same medicine for Epilepsy. Kindly suggest me that if this can be the case or not. I am really confused and getting depressed / anxiety issues now.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Epilepsy is a complex disorder of the brain which has various psychiatric components in it. Anxiety and depression are common. Encorate chrono is no doubt a very good medication for epilepsy. But i hope you have investigated yourself in detail for the first attack of epilepsy at your age. Epilepsy due to some reversible and treatable cause should always be sought for complete cure. Sounds from your mind/ ear need evaluation because sounds in tinnitus are peculiar and can hardly be confused with anything else.

Were your wife disappointed in the near past? clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. For other four treatment methods, I will help you.

Natural way is not be overly concerned of outcome of your actions, which funnily are not in your hands anyways anxiety is always futuristic. Be brave enough to let the destined come the demand to have positive outcome all the time is the culprit! one should know that it is an impossibiltyt you also may take help of a counselor! take care.
