Hi, I am currently taking the following tablets for OCD, depression and anxiety: Flovovamine 100 mg - 1 tablet morning Betacap tr 40 - 1 tablet morning Buperon XL 150 MG - 1 tablet morning Lonazep 2 mg - 1 tablet night I do not have any OCD, anxiety or depression symptoms but I feel like my muscle is stiff in the leg and I feel like shaking my leg always to the extent it pains. I have this prob for more than a month. I had a similar issue earlier sometime before. Could you pls suggest if I can take Ecitane (Trihexyphenidyl) 2 mg - 1 tablet in the morning and 1 tablet in the night along with the above tablets to reduce muscle stiffness and excessive shaking of leg? Note: I am under regular medication since 2011.

I think. As you r on medication since 2011 for ocd wid relieving symptoms. Symptoms you mentioned might be part of restless leg syndrome. Which can be because of medications ,anxiety. And other causes. Usually benzodiazepine like clonazepam is used which you r already taking. Yes in addition to this you can try trihexyphendyl or levodopa carbamamazapine. For your symptoms. U can also avoid caffeine. Maintain sleep hygiene. Leg massage can also help.

Viral fever takes 3-5 days. But if fever persist for long or associated with other symptoms like rashes/ nausea/vomiting/ severe headache/ breathlessness/pain in chest or abdomen etc then please update for further guidance or consult physician, as you may require physical check up & blood investigations. You can take tab. Paracetamol 650 after meals, 3 times daily (only if you are not allergic to the drug) for symptomatic relief. Drink plenty of water, take light but nutritious diet.

Its natural to feel sad about losing someone you actually wanted to be with. But now, its your personal choice. If you wish to clarify whether the girl is still interested in taking the relation forward, you may contact the girl's family for an official meeting again. Feeling sad is okay. But persistent depressive symptoms for more than 2 weeks need treatment. It is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist for the same if required.

I am loosing my memory day by day, I don't remember whatever I learnt or studied, should I check my neurons, please guide me. Give me solutions.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

No need to check anything but you could examine the following and put them into practice: 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 is 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.

Due to smoking unable get in sex. Any treatment and exercise. I want to quick smoking. Tried due to circumstances still on. We need kid pls help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course your sex life will be effected if you continue to smoke. So quitting and immediately and promptly is the best advice I can give you. You must do a lot of exercises: one of which is called kegel and you can find more if you google this name. There are too many harmful effects because of smoking. But here are a few to ruminate up on with the intention of either making you stop or to never start again. It has more than 7000 chemical substances most of which are harmful. It affects your stamina, breathing, forms skin wrinkles; Bad for your heart, bad for bad cholesterol, it can lead to strokes, dental problems, eye problems, cancer, brain cell death, vascular problems, throat problems, voice difficulties, etc. The list is quite endless. It is so bad that there is an international battle to dissuade smoking. Each cigarette you smoke has an effect on your erectile capacity: the nicotine in the cigarette is a vasoconstrictor i.e. it narrows the blood vessels to constrict the blood flow. The erection of the penis is caused by an extra flow of blood to the penis along with a shut down valve that facilitates its engorgement. This action will be compromised. Your BP rises with every cigarette you smoke. But to me the biggest danger is that, in time, dependence and tolerance will develop so that you will want more cigarettes in order to have the same effect as when you started smoking with only one or two. Now, the bluff that we all went through when we were teens was this belief (really a denial) that, if we want, we can stop at any time we choose. That unfortunately does not work: it is a deceptive bluff. The fortunate thing about giving up smoking is that you can reverse most of the damage by giving up at any time: the sooner the better, however.You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison. You must understand, liver digests the poison in order to safeguard your body organs. In that process, liver gets damaged. Even a single drop of alcohol can damage liver. Quit alcohol. Take care.

A thought to Ponder !

" Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarretes, with sex; But eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them."

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

Hello. Smoking causes about 9 out of 10 of all lung cancer deaths in men and women. -Smokers are more likely than nonsmokers to develop heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. -Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body (Bladder, Blood (acute myeloid leukemia), Cervix, Colon and rectum (colorectal), Esophagus, Kidney and ureter, Larynx, Liver, Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils), Pancreas, Stomach, Trachea, bronchus, and lung. -Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. -Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. -Smoking can affect bone health. -Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. -Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. -Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. -Nicotine (which is present in cigarette) stimulates the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and acetylcholine, all of which have been linked to wakefulness, and blood nicotine levels of smokers are highest at bedtime. Thus, smokers spent more time in light sleep and less time in deep sleep. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you to get rid of your habit of smoking and it’s side-effects. Schwabe's Daphne Indica/ thrice daily for 3 months. After a month, report back to me.

Everyone in this world lives with more or less anxiety and depression... so you are not different just don't loose hope and try rejuvenation of yourself again...

Hi Librate user Stress is a normal mental process. Every individual feel stress at some point. It depends on you how you manage it. You should identify the sources of your stress and take action where you can. Try to keep a positive realistic attitude. You should accept that you can't control certain things but it depends on you- how to respond. Share your feeling and opinion with a close friend or relatives. Try to eat healthy, try to manage your time wisely. Get enough sleep and spend some quality time with your loved one. Deep breathing and relaxation technique is very helpful for relieve the stress. Thanks.

Homeopathy: Best to Deal to With Mental & Physical Stress

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Homeopathy: Best to Deal to With Mental & Physical Stress

Stress is the physical or emotional response of the body to an internal or external stimulus that upsets the equilibrium of the body. The stress hormones which are secreted in animals only during starvation, childbirth or torture are secreted in human beings all the time.

Medically, the mental or emotional aspects of stress are exceedingly important. Unhappiness, shock, illness, fear and much else can cause stress, which in turn can make people vulnerable to so many different illnesses both mental and physical. Stress and anxiety go hand in hand; every illness has a degree of anxiety. Even a predominantly physical illness like a sore throat can cause some stress. Certain illnesses have a very large stress component; particularly illnesses like depression, anxiety states and panic attacks.

A person’s tolerance of stress varies enormously – some people thrive on it; high-powered businessmen, for instance, who constantly have to make important decisions. Others buckle under quite small stresses and this may lead to illness.

For the past two centuries, Homeopaths have concentrated on the interconnection between psychology and physiology.

To start with, the homeopathic enquiry is a very profound one and very often during a consultation various factors come to light, which may be creating some degree of anxiety or stress in the patient’s life. A discussion as to how they may be overcome, removed or mitigated, can often be very helpful. Discussion itself can be extremely therapeutic. In many cases, the patient is anxious or worried because nobody has taken time to talk to them. The homeopathic physician spends a lot of time with patients. It is however very important that the practitioner should have a sound knowledge of conventional medical diagnosis because during the discussion signs and symptoms of disease which need conventional (sometimes urgent) treatment may emerge and a qualified doctor with a knowledge of diagnosis knows when to refer a patient urgently to the appropriate specialist and is able to do so.

Having carefully assessed the patient, taking into account not only his illness and how he is reacting to it, but his whole make-up, the homeopathic physician then tries to work out the patient’s constitutional remedy. If he succeeds in selecting the right remedy, the patient’s well­being, resistance, resilience, general health and ability to cope are enhanced and many stress symptoms can be helped.

There are a number of polychrests (medicines of many uses) often prescribed constitutionally, which are particularly appropriate for different sorts of worry and stress. The following I have used to good effect on many occasions: Lycopodium for the patient who greatly underestimates their abilities and anticipates every ordeal however small with pessimism; Silica patients are terrified of failure and Calc carbs are just too weak and exhausted to attempt anything! These medicines are only effective, of course, if they “fit” the patient so far as his whole constitution and make up is concerned.
