Hello sir. I have a query related to my mental issue. As doctors says I am suffering from ocd problem from last 2 yrs. There is no positive results are coming. There are 15 doctors treated me. And all are well experienced. So I am finally hopeless. Approx 14 hours I am sleeping in 24 hours. Because if I don't do this I just can't control my self. And there is no such thoughts are coming in my mind which are related to ocd. But it is true my problem was started with an word like- I wanted to forgot something and for this I was started to many things. And finally I have gone in very deep. But at this time I am not doing something for this but my illusion-"i have problem" are not going. Please answer me that is it any mental issues of human being are there that can't be treat.

I am sure you are one the many people who have not combined medication with therapy. You absolutely need this and so you must return to medication and counseling. OCD can be easily explained away by too obvious a cause like you mention but it is more complicated. However, the bottom line of OCD is fear. Some deep-rooted fear that has not been handled properly is causing this reaction in you. Normally, when one type of medication does not work within 8 weeks, another is resorted to. Nothing is, therefore, hopeless unless you yourself give up. This si where counseling comes in very handy: it will help you stay motivated and keeps the desire going too. There may be some childhood trauma or setting where this fear has found itself and since it has not been resolved it will continue to plague you like this. Deal with the fear and you will have some relief, if not complete​ recovery.

Behavioral Problems in Adolescents

General Physician, Gurgaon
Behavioral Problems in Adolescents

Upon reaching adolescence, children's bodies undergo several changes and so do their minds. It is then that their minds are most, as well as least impressionable. And the daunting question regarding the upbringing of an adolescent is how to treat their constantly changing behavior?

Here are some of the tantrums adolescents more commonly throw, and what should ideally be your approach to it:

  1. Your child seems to hate you: It is very common for a phase of emotional exclusionism to prevail between 16-17 years of age approximately. And the worst thing you could do is heighten that emotion by returning the hatred. Make sure you're firm against any extremely unacceptable behavior, but at the same time, show them that you're there for them no matter what.
  2. Electronic devices become the center of their attention: Whenever you want to have an earnest conversation with your children, their attention seems to be drawn solely to their phones and computers. They feel the need to be connected to their friends and all times. Ways to monitor that are by setting limit to the maximum hours spent on devices or making them pay their own bills, which will make them more responsible rather than splurging unnecessarily. Also, if your child is not entirely secluded from the family, it is probably best not to interfere all the time.
  3. Ignoring the curfew: Your kids often stay out later than the set limit. But it is quite possible that your curfew is unreasonable when compared to other parents' curfew. Find out what the average time limit is; it may prevent your child from bearing a grudge against you. In case they still fail to respect your curfew, make sure you spill out to them what the consequences can be, like being grounded for a week. However, in certain cases, your child may be spending time doing nothing constructive, but away from home. There may be something else going on, find out what that is.
  4. Being friends with the wrong people: Sometimes it might happen that you think some children do not have a good influence on your child, but you cannot say that directly because adolescents tend to get very defensive about their choice of friends. Unless the adolescent is doing something harmful with the friend, like using drugs, let him exercise his choice. Otherwise, don't hesitate from seeking professional help to counsel your child.
  5. Being over-dramatic: Every emotion is heightened in your child and you cannot tell them that what they are whining or being overjoyed about are trivial, because that's their prime focus then. Let them realize on their own how irrational they sound or else you may risk spoiling your relation with them.

You may be having depression. Depression brings lot of negative thoughts which you are having. Please consult a psychiatrist to rule out depression. But if it is diagnosed then start on antidepressants which he will advise you. After a few days of the course you will feel better. So consult immediately.

I can imagine, how difficult it must have been for you to continue life without that person. Have you expressed your sadness, grief? please talk to someone about how you feel after losing this person. Talk about your pain of losing that person. Otherwise your suppressed sadness and pain will develop into more negative thoughts and feelings. You will find it difficult to take rational decisions and you will experience additional stress. The more you talk about the lost person and the more you talk about your pain, more is the cognitive acceptance which will help you to move ahead in life" grieving" is a process, not something to'get over' with. And as part of this process, you need to experience the pain. If you don't express your feelings, the grieving process is retarded and the feelings are internalised which manifest themselves in somatic pains like headaches, body aches etc without a good reason. I understand your pain but loss is an integral part of life. It is not something that happens to us as we live, it is life itself. Understand that life will never be the same again for you but there is life ahead, for you. And this life can be good, with purpose and meaningful. Nothing of what is lost is replaced. A meaningful part of an identity and time is never replaced. Give yourself enough time to feel and experience the pain. But then you need to move on. Resolution does not mean forgetting. You will cherish that person's memories for the rest of your life. But you need to learn to" let go" of that relation you had with the person and move on. It is not very easy. But this if life. Take care.

5 Ayurvedic Remedies for Managing Stress!

Stress is a mental condition that can be triggered by various factors like personal problems and diseases. Ayurvedic unlike many conventional treatments, has natural treatments and as such is free from side effects. There are multiple treatments in Ayurveda that can be used to treat stress, they are:

  1. Exercise: Exercising helps in releasing endorphins (feel good hormones) in the body. Exercises like running and swimming can help in treating stress as well as aid in burning calories and keep your weight levels in check. Exercise also helps in boosting your alertness and concentration and thus boosting your overall mental health.
  2. Diet: Include plenty of vegetables and fruits in your diet to increase your intake of vitamins and antioxidants. Avoid eating non vegetarian foods as they can lead to accumulation of toxins in the body and cause problems. Include foods like nuts and dark chocolate as they are known as mood boosters. These foods also promote feelings of satiety.
  3. Practice relaxation techniques: You can practice relaxation techniques like meditation, which helps in calming the mind. Basic meditative techniques like focusing on your breath and practicing mindfulness are very beneficial. They also help you in de-stressing and improving your focus.
  4. Herbs: You may also include herbs like brahmi that has properties which can reduce stress levels in your body. It can also help in controlling anxiety and stress. It also provides the body with antioxidants that are good for the body as they help in controlling the free radical damage. Ashwagandha is yet another herb that helps in limiting levels of stress and fatigue in the body. It also improves the immune function in the body which means that you will be less prone to diseases.
  5. Massage therapy: You may opt for massage therapy to reduce stress levels in the body. Use a concoction of various medicated oils to massage your head and body. Massage therapy can improve blood circulation in the body and lead to lower levels of stress. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I hv quit my start up with him. Am job hunting. I'm 29 and i'm scared I won't find a good life partner now. I'm depressed. I get anxiety attacks.

Have self respect, this person doesn't deserve you, also you are fortunate that you didn't marry him, and you got timely reminder. Just relax and move on in life, throw them out of your house and don't give them your house. Don't bow down to his dictates, and understand what would have been the situation if you married him. Be quick, relax you will find good partner and man of your life. If you cant handle yourself meet an expert marriage and relationship coach.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

What are the symptoms of of cancer? From five days I was suffering from wooophing cough is that a chance of cancer? I have habit of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may have what is called a 'smokers cough'. But since you are worried I suggest you can go for a test by consulting your doctor. For the symptoms of cancer: Lung Cancer Signs and Symptoms (Sourced from Lung cancer is the most common cancer in men and the fifth most common in women, even causing more cancer-related deaths in women than breast cancer. The incidence of lung cancer is strongly correlated with cigarette smoking, with about 90% of lung cancers arising as a result of tobacco use. Symptoms of lung cancer are varied dependent upon the exact location of the tumor and the extent of its spread. A person with lung cancer may have the following kinds of symptoms: • No symptoms - Up to 25% of people who get lung cancer do not have any symptoms when the cancer is found. In these cases the cancer is first discovered on a routine chest X-ray or computerized tomography(CT) scan performed for another reason. • Symptoms related to the cancer - The growth of the cancer and invasion of the lung and surroundings may lead to symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest pain, and coughing up blood (hemoptysis). If the cancer has invaded nerves, it may cause shoulder pain that travels down the outside of the arm (called Pancoast syndrome) or paralysis of the nerves traveling to the vocal cords that leads to hoarseness. Invasion of the esophagus may lead to difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). If a large airway is obstructed, collapse of a portion of the lung may occur and cause infections (abscesses, pneumonia) in the obstructed area. • Symptoms related to metastasis (spread to other organs) - Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce excruciating pain at the sites of bone involvement. Cancer that has spread to the brain may cause a number of neurologic symptoms that may include blurred vision, headaches, seizures, confusion or altered thought processes, or symptoms of stroke. • Paraneoplastic symptoms - Lung cancers frequently are accompanied by so-called paraneoplastic syndromes that result from production of hormone-like substances by the tumor cells that are released into the blood. A common paraneoplastic syndrome associated with one type of lung cancer is the production of a hormone called adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) by the cancer cells, leading to over secretion of another hormone, cortisol, by the adrenal glands (Cushing's syndrome). • Nonspecific symptoms - Nonspecific symptoms seen with many cancers, including lung cancers, include weight loss, weakness, and fatigue. It is important always to consult a doctor if a person develops the symptoms associated with lung cancer, in particular: • A new persistent cough or worsening of an existing chronic cough • Blood in the sputum • Persistent bronchitis or repeated respiratory infections • Chest pain • Unexplained weight loss and/or fatigue • Breathing difficulties such as shortness of breath or wheezing My advise to you is to quit smoking whether you have any of the symptoms or not. Smoking is just very dangerous to your health.

And although you want to do some treatment than go for homeopathy. It will helps your child to speak early as possible. Contact me if you are interested to go with homeopathy.

I am a mechanical engineer, so I needs to keep all technical things in my brain but due to memory loss I am unable. I don't have a single bad habits. Please suggest powerful medicine.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Many of us are not aware when we are under stress. Please explore this with a counselor and you will be surprised how much pressure we are under without our knowledge. When you address that memory will return to you happily. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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 junk food.

My friend is 48 yrs old extremely intelligent and successful business man. He always had the habit of worrying too much. Lately he started hearing voices. He went to ENT and was told he is suffering from SCHIZOPHRENIA. He is absolutely normal a. Earlier he was a very optimistic person nowadays he has become pessimistic. This is the only apparent change in him. Can his situation worsen if untreated. What is the course of action to be taken. As a friend how can I support him.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Your friend appears to be having psychosis and he needs a detailed psychiatric evaluation. Schizophrenia is a possibility, but other disorders which may cause hearing of voices (hallucinations) need to be assessed as well. During this period, it is very important to give him a good patient listening, a family member/close friend should accompany him to a psychiatrist for evaluation asap and we should ensure that he takes treatment (medicines and counselling) regularly and someone should be with him most of the time for the first 2-3 weeks.

Hello sir/madam, I am loosing my confidence since my 2 exams are gone worst I was good in my academics but now I have no will power I am loosing control of my anger my fear level is also increasing and there is no sigh of confidence did I thinking too much? Or what even I am not able to understand pls help.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
It needs to be evaluated whether it was failure at your exams that made you go anxious and" out of control" or was it the other way round. Stress, anxiety and emotional turmoil can adversely affect performance particularly where your exceptions are soaring high. A balance has to be meet between your efforts, levels of stress and anxiety and having reasonable and achievable goals in life. If you feel that you have been facing anxiety and unable to work it out on your own you should not hesitate to seek help from a psychiatrist. Counselling and medication (if needed) may help resolve most of your problems.

I am 36 years old, my family life is very good but I don' t know I get very angry for very silly reasons. I just yell at everyone & then I don' t get proper sleep. Should I take any tablet for this ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You don? t need tablet for this right now but you certainly should seek counseling help. In therapy you must identify why you get so angry for trivial reasons, and for how long this has been happening. Also you must explore whether you may be scared but acting angry instead. This substituting of feelings indicate that there may be so much fear that you may mistakenly think that you cannot handle it and prefer to be angry to cover up the fear. Does this sound familiar? naturally when this happens and you shout at others, the awakening may happen a little later and you feel guilt and sleep is disturbed. Learn to apologize and inform them that you are working on this problem which is really yours and will resolve it soon. If you are not married, then there could be that as a reason to make you so irritable and to lash out at others. I don? t know the reasons but do follow up on that and see if you could settle down soon.
