Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

For last about 5 years I am suffering from Anxiety attacks, Phobia & stress. I am 50 year men. Daily I am consuming Nexito Forte & triptomer 10 mg. This has caused considerable weight gain & loneliness In the life. I want to leave those medicines gradually . Looking for advice for the same.

You can suffer adverse reactions. Please talk to your doctor about the side effects you are having and seek his guidance on some alternatives. In the meantime please consult with a counselor for methods of coping with your problems. Your phobia and anxiety are causing the loneliness. There is a lot of fear associated with your life and that has to be dealt with pronto. You will avoid people because you are suspicious of them. Do some Yoga meditation, and lots of exercise. A large and strong heart, obtained by good exercise, will respond to fear and stress more calmly i.E. It will pump blood more efficiently and with less beats it will supply oxygenated blood to wherever it is required. Make an effort to meet people by attending workshops, seminars, conferences, talks, discussions, meetings, and gatherings that expose you to other people in the guise of certain topical issues. Join social groups and clubs too. Fix a time schedule and follow a tight sequence of activities. For some neurological exercises you may contact me. I do not expect you to rush with these suggestions but to stagger it out in a developmental fashion. Your life will certainly improve and, if you stabilize the situation, there are many possibilities.

I am staying separate from wife for about 5 years now due to legal issues. Now when the case is about to come to an end chances are becoming to get reunited. Apart from her mental/ emotional state. Is there any way to make out if she was leading active sexual life in past 5 years.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

If you want to accept her, accept her completely then there should be no room of how she has been in those 5 years. Apart from that you need to trust her to build your relationship again, otherwise just let it go because this doubt may always be there and may lead to unhealthy relationship.

I am feeling very depressed I feel like hurting myself and I have done it also by doing so I feel relaxed. I am feeling very lonely please help me.

You could be subjected to abuse in your early past or childhood. That psychological pain needs relief. Thats why you feel physically self inflicted pain is a relief. That is why you could be suffering from micro depressive episodes as well. Some people go on to develop borderline personality disorder with lots of relationship problems. Consult your psychiatrist for a resolution of the same.

I am vegetarian .I got memory loss. As per alopathic doctor's version my memory is comparably old age person memory. Due to work pressure I take 1strip of anxit 0.5 mg.Now I won't take this tablet. What is the ayurvedic medicine available in market for my memory loss.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)

I suggest you get a vitamin b12 level test done. Vegetarians are often deficient in this vitamin which directly influences memory. If that is normal, then we might want to evaluate you or anxiety disorder. I assume that thyroid functions and hemoglobin have been done earlier and are normal.

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. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.

You may be depressed. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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.

I am not able to concentrate in my studies. Tried many remedies, but couldn't get good results. Any advice? Thanking you in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 are 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, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. 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 Lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day.

Please get yourself evaluated thoroughly by medical expert to rule out any medical problem. In case that is ruled out, then this is a case of Anxiety which leads to Panic attack and shows in form of breathlessness. Anxiety issues can be helped effectively by getting Jacobson Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy from a psychologist. It can be taught by them ad you can practice at home. It is a therapy where each and every muscle of body is relaxed and with continuous practice, this helps in easing the anxiety. Other method is hypnotherapy to help find the root cause of anxiety as there are many reasons for anxiety to be present. Hypnotherapy is a well known tool for helping in anxiety.
