There are lots of things in gaining weight like genetics, diet and physical activity. You cannot change your genes, so eat healthily and do physical activity, avoid drugs and drinks given in gym, as they are found to be harmful for health. Enjoy you body and do not compare with others.

I get a lot of anxiety and panic attacks. And that stays for 2-3 days relating to petty issues. Is there any medicines which are safe and I can control by taking them? And how should I stop anxiety naturally? Please help.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I understand your concerns. I went through the details. Anxiety is a disorder. Not a disease. Mental diseases are usually treated with the help of psychiatric medicines. Mental disorders are treated with the help of psychotherapy, life style changes and relaxation methods. Panic attacks are always due to the underlying anxiety disorders. To clear panic attacks, you need to treat and clear anxiety disorder. Psychotherapy techniques include rational emotive therapy, cognitive behavior therapy etc. You should consult a psychologist for these therapies. In the mean time, you can start physical exercise at least for one hour and breathing exercises for 10minutes daily. I hope this answer satisfies you. I am available for further clarifications. Take care.

You are right that your stress causes the headaches. Aapko problem pata hai toh solution bhi aasaan hai. Stress kam karne ke liye kuchh saral tareeke try kariye. 1. Deep breathing. Din mein kam se kam 5 baar 5 slow aur gehri saans leejiye. You can count till 5 for breathe in and again till 5 for breathe out. 2. Imagery. Try to imagine a relaxing scenery. Jitna ho sake utna detail mein imagine karein. Try to imagine relaxing sounds also, like flowing water, birds, wind, etc. Do this just before sleeping. 3. Muscle relaxation. Lie down in a quite and relaxed position. Slowly and gradually, release the tightness from your body. Aapko ek ek karke apni muscles ko dheela chhodna hai. Start from your feet. Then relax your legs, thighs, back, abdomen, chest, shoulder, arms, hands, neck, head and face. Keep your eyes closed and breathe deeply. 4. Seek professional help.

I am feeling depressed since last year then what type of thing I want to do to avoid it?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am feeling depressed since last year then what type of thing I want to do to avoid it?
If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

Hello. We once played a ghost prank before 3 days to scare one of my friends. It worked well, as the prank was made a bit realistic. My friend was the one who played a key role in the prank. But after that the behaviour of him is changed drastically. He acts normal, but all of a sudden he shouts at us very abnormally. And also he is starting to laugh suddenly without any reason for several minutes. But he is not recogonisng that he is acting in such a way. We have no idea whether he is continuing the prank or he is mentally affected or is there something else. How can we move up with this? Help me please.

Hi, What you can do is ask his parents whether he behaves the same way at home, with other group of people or is the behavior only limited to you all who played the prank. Observe for few days, if it doesnot get better and if you collect evidence that in general he has started behaving this way. Seek help from a psychiatrist. You may discuss other symptoms with me if any for better guidance.

alcohol in any quantity is bad for health in a normal person and more so in a person with diabetes. Plus taking regular treatment for diabetes is a must. Please understand diabetes is just not increase in sugar, it affects every single organ in the body like eyes (retina- leading to blindness), affects blood vessels supplying lower limbs and heart, leading to ulcers on the non healing on foot, going up to amputation, coronary artery disease causing silent heart attacks, kidney damage and neuropathy. So controlling blood sugar effectively is absolutely essential as well as avoiding alcohol consumption. Alcohol affects liver, patient fail to recognise hypoglycemia, affects stomach causing gastritis. Talk to him about these things, may get convinced. Thanks for the question.

But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Just do this small exercise: Sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall straight up, making 90 degree angle for 5 mins. Its better you do in early morning, else you can do it anytime. This will make your blood flow increased towards brain and increase your memory and physical strength too will be increased. And try to have Naturamore Male powder 1 spoon in morning and evening as it has all nutrients supplements that our body needs which will give you relief. If you having problem in getting it, just let me know, I will send you. Still if you have any queries, please ask. Take care. :)

My boy friend was a chain smoker 9 months before. He was smoking 5 to 6 cigarettes per day for nearly 3 years. Then he gradually decreased the count day by day due to my continuous compulsion. I personally hate smokers to the core. He said to me that he totally stopped smoking for the past 4 months. How to find whether it is true or not? Is there any way to find out that he is lining to me that he stopped it and still doing it when I am not around? Pls help me find it.

Hi, There are few physical sign in smokers who smoke cigarette, try to find out those ones: -One of the most common and immediate symptoms of smoking is the persistent smokers' cough. The cough is usually the worst in the morning and lessens throughout the day. -Teeth of smokers show brownish black staining from inside and yellow discoloration from outside. -While yellowing teeth may take some time to appear, smoking cigarettes can cause yellow stains on the fingers and fingernails almost immediately. -A wheezing sound can indicate several different physical conditions, but one of them is damaged airways/lungs from smoking. ­-Shortness of breath is a tell-tale sign of a smoker. -Smokers are more prone to getting certain respiratory diseases like colds, bronchitis, and pneumonia. -Lips have a bluish-black discoloration in heavy smokers. -Premature wrinkling: ‘Crows feet’, ‘cobblestone wrinkles’, ‘smoker's face’: Crow's feet is the prominent lines and wrinkles starting from the corner of the eyes. Cobblestone wrinkles are wrinkles that run down at the back of the neck. Smokers also produce matrix metalloproteinase in excess, which degrades collagen and skin loses elasticity as a result. A typical “smoker's face” showing dryness of skin, wrinkles originating from the sides of eyelids running up to cheek called “crow's feet”, wrinkles in front of the ears, and wrinkles running down the neck. -Nodular elastosis of skin with comedone formation. -Multiple open and closed comedones (black heads) over forehead and furrowed wrinkled skin, produced by chronic sun exposure and heavy smoking. Multiple open and closed comedones are present in the periorbital and temporal areas with yellowish discoloration, yellowish nodules, atrophy, wrinkles, and furrows. The eruption is usually bilaterally symmetrical. No inflammation is present, unlike the comedones seen in acne vulgaris. Apart from physical signs and symptoms, the other signs can also help you: -See if their clothes (or hair) smells like smoke. -Look for burn holes in the carpet, in their car, and in their clothing. -If they use mouthwash or gum more frequently.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

I am suffering from depression and I can't bear please help me please I cannot wait any movement please help me please.
If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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.
