Its quite normal to feel sad and feel depressed sometimes. Accept the reality. Most of the times people recover normalcy over time as the routine duties resume. So have faith and share your feelings with people who are close to you and get back to regular rhythm slowly.

Hi, Do kegel exercise: Locate the right muscles Insert a finger inside your anus and squeeze the surrounding muscles. You can feel the PC muscle tighten or move upward when you contract it. Then, relax your muscles and feel your pelvic floor return to the starting position. Also try to stop the flow of urine when you urinate. Don’t do this on an extremely full bladder. Practice Makes Perfect Contract your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for five seconds, and then relax for five seconds. Practice it five to six times in a row. Work up to keeping the muscles contracted for ten seconds at a time, and then relax for another ten seconds between each contraction. Focus While Exercising To have a faster result in a shorter period of time, focus your mind on tightening your pelvic floor muscles only. Do not flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Breathe normally and avoid holding your breath. Repeat 3 times a day Practice at least three sets of ten repetitions a day. After a while, you’ll be able to exercise your PC muscles seamlessly. You’ll even be able to do them while doing your daily chores! There are other lifestyle changes and diet changes you can make which will help you. Counseling will also help you. Consult me for same. All the best.

Can Yoga Improve Your IQ?

When you get a compliment, 'smart thinking or you are intelligent or that was intelligent of you', you definitely feel good. These comments fill us with confidence, admiration and pride and we want it to happen to us again and again. But owing to a busy schedule and long working hours it might not be possible. Having said this, it does not mean that a person cannot stay intelligent throughout. This can be easily achieved by regular meditation. Regular meditation and yoga helps the mind to be more reflective and efficient.

Here are reasons how yoga and meditation lead to an intellectual learning and growth:

  1. Utilizes the brain: Almost everyone uses one half of their brain more and this leads to imbalance. Meditation is believed to sync the left and the right hemispheres, thereby allowing neural connection and great processing power. When logical left and creative right brains start working in harmony, then solving problems becomes easy; and it also increases creativity, deep thinking comes to be known of and concentration and focus magnifies. Highly successful people usually display whole brain synchronization.
  2. Functional capabilities of brain enhance due to meditation: Research backs it that meditation increases the gray matter thickness of the brain regions, thus making the brain smarter, bigger and faster. This is very similar to doing physical exercise which makes the muscles denser and stronger. The increase in Functional Capabilities of brain is based on the concept of neuroplasticity, which states that our intelligence is not based on genetics and there are some things which can be done to improve the way our brain works. Meditation is a good brain enhancer with an ability to increase intelligence.
  3. Beneficial brainwave patterns can be seen: Meditation can help to guide the brainwaves into beneficial frequencies. The frequencies: alpha, theta and delta when guided can show case a myriad of benefits including idea generation, creativity, cognitive functioning, and intellectual capacity. Meditation helps to transform these beneficial states of mind and help boost the IQ.
  4. Develops intuition and insights: These are generally obtained through listening and developing to the inner voice. Thus meditation forms to be the basic key to tap these latent abilities. The intelligence can be mapped through tests and quizzes and is valuable at each level to stimulate insights and creativity. As per some people, inner intelligence, is considered to be the most important and best success in the world. Successful people including Steve Jobs have stated that their super revolutionary ideas and business acumen came through their intuition.
  5. Meditation helps in improving both short and long term memory: The key memory areas hippocampus and frontal lobe show increase in activity during meditation. By stimulating these areas, the short and long term memories are improved.

Dear Joy, Happy to know that you are trying to leave marijuana smoking. Heart beating fast and weakness are the effects of marijuana. Usually there is no withdrawal symptoms of marijuana.So if you decide you can leave it without any bad effects On the other hand you may feel strong and your heart may not beat fast. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like weed parties, smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud..

Dear lybrate-user, masturbation is a normal physiological sign of you growing up. When your testosterone level is high when you mature to manhood, you feel the urge to masturbate. Though biologically mature at 16-18 years sociologically or economically you are mature to get married. So accept that masturbation proves that you are a man and it is a normal outlet before marriage. But you are suffering from depression which needs antidepressant treatment. Both rexipra and prothiaden are good antidepressant tablets. You can take them during examination also. It will give you mor confidence to give your best. Restart both tablets and go back to a psychiatrist - not neurologist. Depending on the improvement, he may increase the dose.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your uncle's will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If your uncle is ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support he need, he can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless he feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that he has a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for his actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. He should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who will 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, your uncle need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with his psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hello, I am sorry for your loss. Life becomes hard when you loose your close one. But we need to cope up with the situation. Keeping everything with yourself will increase the burden. You need to talk to people you trust or make new friends even if you don't like it. Try and express your feelings in a way you like. Distract your self to the other activities that you like. You have a great life ahead, you have studies and a career to take care. It will take time but you will come over it.

I am very puzzled mentally. I am not mentally fit. I am trying to commit suicide. I need counselling. Please advice.
Your puzzled situation and thoughts of self harm suggest some severe type of disorder, most like ya complicated type of depression. This is common in people with hypothyroidism. Such a severe problem may require target oriented counseling along with some medications from a psychiatrist. You may also need a re evaluation of your thyroid levels. Without any hesitation or delay, consult a psychiatrist, preferably with a family member along, for a detailed management.

I want to stop my alcoholic addiction. I tried Mother Tincture acid scalp Q. But no effective Pls help.
Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

MD - Psychiatry

Seems highly unlikely. Never heard of a person taking disulfiram and alcohol, as the interaction can be life threatening. Try getting admitting your father in a licensed de-addiction centre as in patient and detox him.

Overeating may be an underlying symptom. This needs to be looked into in detail. Certain people over eat in emotionally testing times, stress, while others do so chronically. It is essential that you understand that limiting portions may make you hungry again and again, but there is no harm in eating smaller meals at regular intervals. Infact its better. Your weight and height point out that you are quite underweight and the bmi ratio is about 14.3, which is quite low. I would recommend a thyroid function test for you, if despite eating big meals, you aren't putting on weight. Detailed examination is a must for you.

My son aged about 27 years, basically B. Tech, is in the habit of smoking Grass (Ganja) in excess quantity. He has become hyperactive. Please may I know the remedy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it? The obsession and compulsive use are when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When one smokes pot, the body absorbs THC right away. (If he eats baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for the body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in the stomach before it enters the bloodstream). He may notice changes in his body right after he smokes. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: •Dizziness •Shallow breathing •Red eyes and dilated pupils •Dry mouth •Increased appetite •Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i. E. For example, you can see sounds and hear colors! If he is finding it very difficult to give it up on his own then admit him in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep himself clean forever. He will need to alter his lifestyle, change his friends, his haunts, his habits, etc. He must learn to have fun in clean ways. He must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally he must be able to handle his feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach him about emotions and how to handle them.
