Hi Doctor, I am 22 years old. Usually I am very cool. But in some situations I get tensed and get angry. Please suggest me how to reduce the anger.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
During that situation take deep breaths for 10-12 times and if possible sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall and upper part of body lying down making 90 degree with legs for 10 mins. Your mind will be relaxed of all stress within 5-7 mins temporarily.

To achieve the best results, medication should be taken in the right dose for the prescribed period of time. One of the causes of early relapse or incomplete recovery is that patients tend to stop medication on their own without consulting the doctor as they feel better. I suggest you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed assessment and take medication as prescribed with regular follow ups. Having a previous history of depression makes you more vulnerable to the severity of the illness, so please do not ignore it. Depression is not something that will 'go away on its own' or 'get better with positive thinking' Like diabetes or hypertension it is an illness that requires urgent attention.

For this to come up at this age is significant because it is the last chance you will get to resolve it before it becomes a permanent negative trait. About the issue itself: do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? you can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (i suggest you join the toastmasters club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone: it is called performance anxiety. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too! there are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: awareness, intimacy, and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good. It is also possible that after many performances, you will find it easier and easier to face and sing in front of audiences.

Due to slump in Business and worry about the current situation I am feeling very depressed and not being able to sleep properly and get only about three hours . Please help.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your stress is of a high level. This shortage of sleep portends serious repercussions for your health, let alone your business. You must be aware that many businesses do not last for various reasons. If you have to cut your losses and shut down the business for another, do it fast and consult a professional. Sometimes the location may not be suitable, the business may have run out its course, new approaches and competition can all put you out of your venture. Change is the only constant in life: innovate or perish. Passivity is criminal to the situation. Do something, even if it wrong. Try many options before you settle with the right one. But get on with your life, and soon too. Your sleep will return to normal levels and your health will not be threatened.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of scleranthus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night. Your problem could be vertigo.

Difficult to give clear answer here without knowing you. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

I'm suffering from my mental problem as I think much on those talks or things which are not relevant also.
You need to take deep breaths 10-12 times whenever you feel such irrelevant thoughts. And also you go for food supplement i.e. Naturamore male powder, 1 spoon in morning and evening for 1 month. It will definitely give you result by stopping this irrelevant thoughts. All these starts appearing is due to lack of nutrition and stress in this today's world. Better just go for it. If you are not getting it anywhere, please let me know. I will provide you. Take care :)

How I can concentrate in my studies. Give some methods or tips or any type of secret method for study. Please tell.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Masters in psychology counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 AM and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times, "Practice makes Perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing . Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6AM. Example some people they don't like Mathematics but it is essential for Life everyday and every time we are depended on Mathematics, Right from Doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds It is like love issues. still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

Please take her to a psychiatrist for assessment and diagnosis and let the doctor prescribe medication. For you, you need to talk to your doctor if you w to reduce your dosage. Further, these medications have some side effects. I suggest that for a deeper cure from the cause of the illness, both of you undergo counselling sessions coupled with alternative treatment of ayurveda or homeopathy where the root cause is addressed rather than the symptoms. A holistic approach to healing is always better than single approach, where 1. You will need to exercise regularly to release natural anti depressants in your brain which will naturally protect you against mental illness and emotional ups and downs. 2. A healthy diet containing fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish, proteins, good fats is required for a sound mind and body functioning. These foods are mood stabilisers and have a good affect on the cognitive functioning as well as emotional balance. It will ensure you a good night sleep and early rising in the morning. 3. Having a daily routine and time for mental and emotional relaxation is important too. So having a satisfying hobby and a congenial friend circle where you can relax and emotionally intimate with each other is of equal importance.

Hello lybrate-user- weight loss can be easily achieved by following some ayurvedic rules- a) go to bed before 10 pm and wake up early morning if you want to study. B) avoid fast foods and foods which are processed in nature. C) practice kapalbhati pranayam in the morning. D) have foods which have more fiber content. E) take evening meals before 7 pm and try not to take milk while going to bed. F) drink water before meals as it will decrease your food urge and will reduce your weight.

Physically she may lose libido (sex drive) earlier than you as she ages. This may cause problems in your sexual life. Psychologically there may erupt ego clashes in future since you are younger and if you would like to have a male-dominant family. But with good understanding and open communication from both sides, you can live a happy married life.

I am sure you are another one of those who has not combined medication with counseling. Please seek the help fo a counselor and learn some specific coping skills and techniques to support the medical effects. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, 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. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear doctor, good evening. There is lots of tension and fight between my mom and dad everyday. They don't like each other and they always blame each other. In the year 2014 my dad got married with another lady and had 1 son. Most of his money he spent on him only. Now also he started talking with one lady continuously who works with him also he started drinking very frequently. My Mom is very depressed because of his behaviour. Actually my dad don't like my mom job as she earns only 5000 a month but if she don't do that job also my dad will not fulfill her needs. She have to go for work. I feel uncomfortable to talk to my my dad that why he is doing all this thing even my brothers don't want to ask him saying that he is like that only. But all this thing is affecting my mom's health badly. Please help what to do. My dad does not have his parents also whom he will listen. Please advise how he can leave his bad habit. Specially with other ladies affair. His age is 54 years now and as per my mom he us very interested in sex but my mom had done family planning operation and uterus operation so she get stomach pain very frequently and not much interested in Sex.

The problem between your parents is very complicated, though not unusual. A lot of married couples lead a very unhappy life with each other. From what you are saying about your dad, your brother's assessment may be right. He probably has a personality which makes him highly centred on his own needs, ignoring the pain he is causing to others. Your mother's job is just an excuse. Giving him what he wants simply because he gets upset is not fair. But it becomes a way of life for families. With so many problems going on, it is natural that their sexual relationship will be adversely affected too. It is a marital problem and only your parents can solve it, provided they agree to solve it through professional counseling. As for his alcohol, he may require treatment with medicines as well. I can understand it bothers you a lot, but sometimes it's better that two people live peacefully apart than suffer together. You can try talking them into seeking help but that's about all that you can do.

Rather than reducing the effects you need to stop smoking as the number of cigarettes are dangerously high. Consult a psychiatrist to reduce craving and get withdrawal treated. All the best.
