Dear lybrate user, * protein is an essential part of the diet because it is needed for every type of growth and repair of tissues that takes place in the body. * when you consume too much protein, the kidneys are responsible for getting rid of excess nutrients in the body, so over consumption of protein means over working the kidneys. Following steps should be taken to avoid excess protein: 1> drink water: drinking excess water will help your kidneys to flush out and remove excess proteins from your body. 2> eating more foods such as fruits and vegetables will help you feel full and lower your protein intake every day. 3> focus on eating plant-based proteins in place of animal protein. 4> consult a dietician for low protein diet. * excess protein leads to weight gain, joint pain, muscle cramps.

Is it medically possible to erase a bad incident from your memory. And if it happened because of your own mistake and now you are unable to accept that you could do such a filthy act? I am regretting it badly. It's been a month and I cry for almost whole day, daily! I just can't accept that I did the act. Sometimes I feel like killing myself. Is there any way to completely erase it from my memory. I can not feel anything. No happiness no excitement nothing. I have lost interest in everything I do. I don't care if I am driving watching movie or bathing I keep thinking about that mistake over and over again and now I can't undo it. I don't feel hunger or thirst. I don't enjoy anything. Not even the things I was excited about before, I just keep on thinking about that mistake. I want to run away. I am completely detached from this world and I think about my mistake for every moment of the day, its out if my control to stop the thought and there is no relief. I just want to die. I don't know for how long I can handle it. Is there any way to relieve my pain. Can doctors erase that event from my brain? Can I get relief by any therapy? Can you help me forget that incident like it never happened? Can you take away that part of my life? Please?

Dear Lybrate user. You must understand repression. Your mind itself is capable to erase a memory which is painful or causing anxiety and worries. If it has not done, according to your mind, the memories are not that painful. In modern medicine, there are no medicines which can erase memories. But many medicines are there which can help you reduce those thoughts. Hypnotherapy can help remove the memories. Take care.

I have smoking habit I cannot quit, but how can I be healthy by taking some healthy food for lungs.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will only feel like you can't give up, but you will succeed by perseverance. There is no specific food to help with your lungs but you can do deep breathing and improve the performance of your lungs. Not only deep breathing but good aerobic exercise and breathing through your nostrils will improve lung health tremendously. But congrats for your desire to quit smoking. It is now important that you actually do it and persevere with it. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. I guess you know all the harm cigarettes do to your system, which is why I suppose you are seeking to quit. But now you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. 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, for a little while. 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 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.

JOINT DISORDERS

JOINT DISORDERS
Joint Disorders
A ‪#‎joint‬ is where two or more bones come together, like the ‪#‎knee‬, ‪#‎hip‬, ‪#‎elbow‬, or ‪#‎shoulder‬. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or ‪#‎diseases‬, including
1. ‪#‎Arthritis‬ - inflammation of a joint. It causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Over time, the joint can become severely damaged.
2. ‪#‎Bursitis‬ - inflammation of a fluid-filled sac that cushions the joint.
3. ‪#‎Dislocations‬ - injuries that force the ends of the ‪#‎bones‬ out of position
Treatment of ‪#‎JointProblems‬ depends on the cause. If you have a ‪#‎SportsInjury‬, treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. For arthritis, injuries, or other diseases, you may need joint replacement surgery to remove the damaged joint and put in a new one.

At your age this claim is serious. You cannot live alone without suffering depression. We are made to live with others, period. 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.

milk secretion can come due to various reasons even in a virgin lady. Your suspicion based on this alone is not warranted. But explain to her that ur not a medical person, as u rightly did apologize and bring her back. Find the reason for the excessive milk and get her treated. All the best

Neck pain and headache may be due to muscle tension and strain due to poor posture, working at a desk for too long without changing position, sleeping with your neck in a bad position, jerking the neck during exercise. Headache and pain in neck may be related to each other like due to any mental tension and stress or poor posture during sleep and some time pain may be due to any infection. First you should try following treatment for get relief pain. Apply ice for the first few days. After that, apply heat with a heating pad, hot compress, or by taking a hot shower. Take a few days off from sports, activities that aggravate your symptoms, and heavy lifting. Resume normal activity slowly as your symptoms ease. Exercise your neck every day. Slowly stretch your head in side-to-side and up-and-down motions. Use good posture. Avoid cradling the phone between your neck and shoulder. Change your position often. Don’t stand or sit in one position for too long. Get a gentle neck massage. Use a special neck pillow for sleeping. If still pain will remain same then get a cbc with esr test, x-ray of neck done and share your all reports for further management.

For a mild and moderate anxiety, only cbt can help. But a severe case of anxiety will need medications, counselling, exercising and diet interventions.

Hi lybrate-user, are you sure she is depressed or just stressed out because of her exams? There is a lot of pressure on people to succeed in exams and sometimes this can be a little overwhelming for her. She can do following things: 1. Keep talking to her and let her know that you are by her side, a shared burden is always lighter. 2.Make one health-related commitment. Do what is possible to bolster her health so that she can have the energy and strength to tackle the challenges she is facing. One small step, like cutting back on her caffeine consumption, can have a positive effect. Studies show that without caffeine, people reported feeling more relaxed, less jittery or nervous, slept better, had more energy. Similarly, a brisk walk or other aerobic activity can increase her energy and concentration levels and lessen feelings of anxiety. Physical activity increases your body’s production of good-feeling endorphins, a type of neurotransmitter in the brain, and decreases the production of stress hormones. This will help her manage the stress. Enhance your sleep quality. People who are chronically stressed often suffer from lack of adequate sleep and, in some cases, stress-induced insomnia. According to APA’s 2009 Stress in America survey, 47 percent of all adults say they lie awake at night because of stress. It is important to take steps to increase the quality of your sleep. Experts recommend going to bed at a regular time each night, striving for at least 7-8 hours of sleep, and if possible, eliminating distractions, such as television and computers from your bedroom. Begin winding down an hour or two before you go to sleep and engage in calming activities such as listening to relaxing music, reading an enjoyable book, taking a soothing bath or practicing relaxation techniques like meditation. Avoid eating a heavy meal or engaging in intense exercise immediately before bedtime. If you tend to lie in bed and worry, write down your concerns well in advance of bedtime and then work on quieting your thoughts before lights-out. You can figure out how to address stressful issues in the morning, after a good night’s sleep. Strive for a positive outlook. Looking at situations more positively, seeing problems as opportunities and refuting negative thoughts are all important aspects of staying positive and trying to minimize your stress. In some people, stress can be caused by their attempts to handle things perfectly. Setting more realistic expectations and positively reframing the way you look at stressful situations can make life more manageable. Also, difficult circumstances have a way of working out; it is important to keep challenges in perspective and do what you can reasonably do to move forward.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
What are the causes and consequences of mental disorders mainly at their high stage?
Mental disorders are like any other disorders and can happen to anybody. They can also be treated like most other disorders. But unfortunately it goes undetected and untreated which usually leads to worsening of the diseases. It can lead to a number of harmful consequences in the social, financial, occupational and even physical domains of the patient. So, the importance of treating mental illness can't be stressed enough.
