Neurologist,
Parkinson's disease-kampavata (a neurological disorder) parkinson's disease is a neurological disease, or brain disorder, that leads to progressive difficulty with balance and coordination. In people who have parkinson's disease, nerve cells in a region of the brain known as the substantia nigra become damaged or die. These cells are important because they produce the chemical dopamine, which helps to coordinate body movement-basal ganglia. When dopamine-producing cells degenerate/die, the areas in the brain that control movement can no longer function properly, and symptoms of parkinson's disease eventually develop. Parkinson? s disease prevalence:- parkinson's disease can affect anyone, but it most often occurs in people who are over the age of 50. Only 15 percent of parkinson's disease patients are diagnosed before they are 50 years old. The prevalence of parkinson's disease is nearly the same in both men and women, and recovery rate is more in men. People with a family history of parkinson's may have a higher risk of developing the disease, but parkinson's disease is rarely attributed to genetics alone. Parkinson's disease symptoms symptoms of parkinson's disease usually develop after about 80 percent of the brain's dopamine-producing cells are lost. The main symptoms of parkinson's disease include? tremors (kampam)- tremulousness (uncontrolled shaking or trembling) of the hands, arms, legs, face, body is often one of the first indicators of parkinson's disease? rigidity. Profound stiffness or an inability to easily move the arms, legs, and trunk, pain and stiffness on neck muscles is another hallmark of parkinson's? bradykinesia:- describes the unnaturally slow movements that are characteristic of people with parkinson's disease? poor balance- parkinson's disease affects balance, leading to difficulty walking and impaired coordination. The symptoms of parkinson's are generally mild at first, but become more severe over time, until they eventually interfere with your daily routine. This is usually the point when treatment is recommended. The outlook for people with parkinson's disease parkinson's disease is a chronic, progressive condition, which means it is a lifelong disease that worsens over time when it is not treated properly. Each individual's situation is different, but in general, the first symptoms of parkinson's disease usually don't require treatment and may be restricted to one area or one side of the body. Movement of symptoms to the other side of the body? tremors that become more pronounced and interfere with activities? bradykinesia, or slow movement, that becomes disabling? difficulty with hand writing? impaired swallowing and chewing? speech that becomes monotone? poor balance and repeated falls? slow, shuffling gait (manner of walking)? stooped posture? facial expressions that become stiff and blank? chronic constipation? poor bladder control? sleep disturbances this progression is gradual in most people, but it may happen faster in some than others. Understandably, stress caused by the progression of the disease can lead to anxiety and depression. Ayurveda treatment: there is cure for parkinson's disease with ayurveda treatment, with ayurveda medicines and treatments we can relieve symptoms, slow down the progression and then we can completely arrest further degeneration of the of the cells, thereby we can completely control and cure the disease. If you are diagnosed with parkinson's disease, it is important to work closely with your medical team, so your medications can be regularly adjusted to help you remain as functional as possible for as long as possible. As far as parkinson's disease is concerned this is a brain related issue, so will surely effect the mind; so I recommend 49% treatment to patients and 51% treatment to family members.

Dear lybrate user, sex is a physical urge/need. It helps in emotional connect as well. Having good sexual relations with your partner will keep you both connected emotionally and committed to each other. But sex is not a daily chore, for which you can have a fixed time or interval. Hence there is no hard and fast rule for having or not having sex on daily basis. A couple can enjoy sex when they both feel the urge and are ready physically and emotionally. The frequency depends on their mutual need and capacity. Sex is also not just a physical activity. It is a way to connect and develop bond with your partner, way to seek and express love to each other. So do not worry about the frequency. What is more important is that both the partners need to be ready for it. And the feeling/urge needs to come from within. I think it would be very helpful if you seek pre-maital conselling for either both or at least you can talk to a counsellor. There are many aspects to married life, which you need to understand before marriage to have a successful marriage. Good luck.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

I feel headache. Stress. Tiredness in my mind. Moat of the time. So what should I take to relief from then?
Having stress, headaches, feeling tired and fatigue most of the time at your age can have multiple causes but mostly it is due to mismanaged stress. Also a possibility of hormonal imbalance, vitamin deficiencies and depression cannot be ruled out. Please find time to do relaxation exercises like yoga and/ or meditation. Even a daily brisk walk for 45 minutes can help. Have a relaxing sleep at night. Eat healthy. Include fresh fruits in diet. Avoid preserved foods or junk foods. Consult online for further queries and assistance.

Hi Librate user Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of our life, but when your emotions such as hopelessness and despair take hold and just won't go away you may have depression. You should try to be brave and face each and every situation in your life. Try to think positive. You should share your feeling and emotions with a close friend or relative. Try to spend some time for outdoor activities. There are many things you can do to lift and stabilize your mood. Be happy and try to live a healthy life.

Dear lybrate-user. Homosex is not a crime. If you are having pleasure in that area you may continue it. This habit will not be transferred to your son or daughter, don't worry. I also suggest you to try straight sex because society needs you to do that. Don't be worried or anxious about your homesex attitude. Enjoy it. Take care.

My friend is a regular chain smoker he smoke more than 20 cigarette per day. I want him to leave smoking. What should be done. Any advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is indeed a very noble thought that you want to help your friend. However, it is now very clear that in any addiction, the addict must want to stop the habit himself for any success. All you can do is keep advising him, but also highlight the dangers of tobacco smoke with correct information. And believe me that it is indeed very scary. One thing that hits a lot of youngsters, boys in particular, is that you will lose your erectile capacity and over a period of time even your sexual potency can diminish. And of course everyone has heard about cancer, which is very frightful. You could take him to any police station or cancer hospital to view the condition of cancer-caused disfigurement and it is horrific. These things do help in dissuading people from smoking. In other words, create awareness such that it works as a deterrent to further smoking. You would have done him a great favor.

How to increase our grasping power of our brain which we help in our study as well as can keep us happy in our life and keep a big smile on our face and never be give us false thinking?

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Hi Librate user Very good question. Grasping power depends upon practice and concentration. If you keep a focused mind only one thing at a time, that you would like to achieve, then your grasping power will definitely increase. Make a short notes of your studies, and try to recall them, and for your happiness try to make a short list of the simple things that give you pleasure, and keep them in front of your consciousness and make sure you engage with them at least few times in a week. Whatever movements inspires you do it, observe it and feel the happiness, its brings for you. Live in the moment is the key of individuals happiness, you can't change the past, no control of the future so try to live in the moment and enjoy what's in front of you right here, right now. Thanks.

Anxiety Disorders, Phobias and Their Management

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Anxiety Disorders, Phobias and Their Management

Anxiety is one of those things that almost every individual faces at some point of time in his/her life. You can be anxious about many things. Sometimes, however, these can lead to a more complex set of problems called ‘phobias; where a person develops anxiety towards a seemingly benign object/situation. For example, a person would be uncomfortable in water, and develop a phobia of swimming, or a person can be allergic to insects and get a phobia/fear of insects. 

Anxiety can lead to an emotional pain - a pain where there are no physical attributes. Having an anxiety disorder can hamper a person from performing his/her regular activities. Let us have an in-depth look into anxiety disorders, and their possible management. 

Understanding Anxiety: 

Sometimes, there may be no underlying cause of anxiety. Sometimes, the environment or the incidents a person experiences in his lifetime, can precipitate anxiety disorders. There are several symptoms of anxiety, and some of them can include mood swings, confusion, decreased self-esteem, fatigue, weakness, and general fear of one's surroundings, lack of concentration, and a general feeling of helplessness. The person's sleep pattern gets disturbed, and as a result, insomnia sets in. He/she might be unable to perform the activities that they were able to earlier. Anxiety sometimes causes the blood pressure to shoot up, and can result in heart-related complications. In severe cases, anxiety can lead to depression and complete helplessness, and this can result in suicidal tendencies. 

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems that individuals face today. Our changing lifestyle too has contributed a great deal towards it. Modern day urban living is highly stressed with long working hours, unhealthy diet, and frequent smoking and drinking, all of which can trigger anxiety disorders. 

Treatment: 

Anxiety management is not a single step process, and it involves layers of planning. The primary part of the treatment involves the evaluation of the patient first. The underlying cause of the anxiety has to be addressed first and evaluated. The trauma related to that particular cause has to be analyzed, and only then can the physical treatment start. The psychiatrist can help only if the person who is suffering is more open to treatment. Medication certainly works, and anti-depressants, as advised by the physician, should be initiated. Sometimes, a change of job or the environment can help a great deal in minimizing anxiety levels. Friends and family members should also pitch in, offering the support the individual needs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

I am too depressed as I am in a relationship in which he black mails me ki me tumhe badnaam kerduga papa ko goli maarduga he is vry powerful I am depressed I have attempted suicide also no one is there to share my feelings as my parents expectations are high from me I don't wanna broke them I feel sometimes I need a psychiatrist but don't I feel is it I am mental or what? Please advise.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology

Hi, you seem to be in an abusive relationship and it, obviously is having very negative impact on you. He is using your fears regarding your image in your parents eyes as a weakness and blackmailing you. This behaviour will become worse with time. You need to talk to your parents or helpful siblings who can help you. Why it's important to involve your parents is firstly, your fears will be addressed, secondly, being elders they will be able to help you more sensibly. Yes there is every possibility of your parents getting angry with you but their anger may not last long because they love you and want the best for you. Putting up with your parents anger is better than going through this abusive relationship with your boyfriend which may have long-lasting impact over your mental health and future relationships. If you have other trusted family members who can help you in this, you can take their help too if parental help is not an option for you. Take care.
