I am a daily routine smoker and I have try to quit but its so tough for me so sir can you suggest me some kind of tips to reduce the some present in my lungs? Like some juices or?

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help.

You are going through extended grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Hi, you are having foot fetishism. Having an atypical sexual attraction to a non-sexual part of a female's body is completely okay. But you won't know the extent of your sexual attraction until you actually become intimate with someone. You should only begin to worry if your fetish causes your sexual partner harm or you suffer significant impairment, i. E. You can't get or maintain an erection without the fetish; and even then you may find someone who's completely willing + happy to indulge your fetish all the time. You have nothing to worry about, although these fetishes tend to incredibly tricky addictions, the situation you are in is reversible. Seek help from a psychologist online or in person. Discuss your issues and follow the guidance.

Hi. One of my friend when listen any kind of gossip in which she relates. She think about that word for whole day. Sometime she weep and get angry. Like usne aisa kyu kaha . Wo mere bare me aisa kyu sochta hai. Maine sab khata kar dia. Like that. Pls give me advice how I help her.

MBBS

Pl ask her to not listen or indulge in mundane gossip which can wander the mind to disturbing thoughts and making angry. Ask her to keep mind busy in constructive activities so that mind does not get space for such gossip. From whereever and whenever the mind wanders due to it's unsteady and flickering nature, one should certainly it back under one's control. It may not be easy but it comes by practice. Hope this helps.

Language Disorder - How to Diagnose it?

Language disorder is commonly known as language impairment, it is a common childhood disorder, which makes it difficult for kids to understand what the people around them are saying to them and to face difficulty in following simple directions, it also includes difficulty in expressing the thoughts and feeling through speech.

Language disorder can be classified as:

  1. Receptive language disorder: This disorder makes it difficult to understand what the other person is saying to the one suffering from it.
  2. Expressive language disorder: Kids suffering from it are not able to express themselves and their thoughts.
  3. Mixed receptive expressive disorder: These kids have combined symptoms of receptive language disorder and expressive language disorder, making it difficult to understand and to make someone else understand.

Symptoms of language disorder:

  1. Difficulty in understanding: The ones suffering from language disorder, finds it difficult to understand what the people around them are saying.
  2. Limited vocabulary: It is one of the prominent symptoms, in which the vocabulary of the kids is very limited as compared to other kids of that age.
  3. Trouble learning new things: Learning new things is a difficult task for the kid suffering from language disorder
  4. Repeat usage of certain phrases: Kids tend to use the same phrase again and again, which is one of the basic symptoms.
  5. Frustration: As the kid is either not able to understand or to make other understand or both, kids with this disorder tend to remain more frustrated in comparison to other kids, as they are unable to do things. 
  6. Sentences which do not make sense: Making incomplete or senseless sentences is a key indicator of language disorder.

What you should do?

  1. Speech therapist: The treatment may include speech therapy, in which the speech therapist will work towards building the vocabulary and improving the grammar of the kids suffering, making the kids more confident and feel good about themselves.
  2. Psychotherapy: If the kid is also suffering from emotional issues because of the language disorder, then one should also undergo Psychotherapy, as it not only improves the morale of the patient, but also provides the guidance on how to keep improving further from the language disorder.
  3. Positive Atmosphere: The kids suffering from such a disorder should be made comfortable enough to enjoy their being, giving plenty of time to your young ones is the best way to cure such disorder, so one should always communicate well with his kids and make them learn new things, sing to them, listen to various sounds, show different pictures, colours, shapes to make them learn.
  4. Parental Support: The parents should also understand the issue well, be patient, and should support the kid to work out on the disorder. Parents should also interact with other parents, who have been there, to learn more about the language disorders and how their kids overcome the disorder.

As language disorder is one of common issue in kids, this can be managed and cured well to improve after all the required knowledge and best practices to follow. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Mr. lybrate-user, Usually when TSH level is between 6 to 9.9 mU/L, condition is considered as subclinical hypothyroidism and no treatment is advocated. Sometime treatment is given if there is associated low T4 level and patient has severe symptoms of hypothyroidism. Since you have been already taking the drug, there is no option but to continue it. TSH 4.9 is with in the normal range, however, if you stop treatment, it will again go up. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, You are suffering from OCD. You need medication as well as psychotherapy from a psychologist to get completely out of this situation, psychosocial management is very important. I would want you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Daily 15 minutes morning And evening and whenever thought comes.

Amla juice is ok. Use it. Do not think too much about hair lose. Hair comes again do not think about it. Because of stress. You face so many problems. So do not give stress on your mind. Avoid too much thinking on small things. As per your parents advice it is temporary. Hair comes again. Do not worry. Take amla juice it is good. Take rest. Sleep very well. Take good food. Concentrate on your studies. Share all your feelings with your family members and friends. Do not sit alone and don't think on small issues. Be happy all the time. Best of luck.

I've been smoking for last 3 years and I want to quit this bad habit. I tried number of times but failed to quit because of the craving and headache. Please tell me some medicines which can help me in quitting smoking.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco/ or drugs or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

How to
How to begin your sex life
Prepare yourself- GET READY mentally and physically.
Make sure you are healthy and normally developed.
Seek premarital counselling session from an expert sexologist. Do the investigations if necessary.
Learn about your body and your partner. Share your ideas about hygiene and mend your ways.
Get well acquainted. Develop a rapport with your partner.
Whether an arranged or a love marriage; good communication, sharing your sexual fantasies, body image, expectations in life, health issues is a must. Many people think putting out their best foot is essential to impress a would-be partner. But in time you will realise HONESTY is the most attractive quality in a spouse.
Do not commit to a relationship until you are absolutely sure of what you want. If you are anxious about your sexuality, do not rush in anything. Also separate any feelings of guilt attached to your sexual being.
Interpersonal comfort is very essential in a couple’s life. Find what you like the most about each other and appreciate your partner frequently. You can begin with the “likes” and then point to minor “dislikes” in that order!. That minimizes the impact and hurt caused by criticism. Remember criticism is a part of good communication and both partners should be mature enough to take it lightly.
Wish you happy life !

Hi lybrate-user, You may be having difficulty in regulating your emotions. Although I can provide you few solutions to manage it well, but its necessary to know the underlying cause of it to eliminate it completely. Consult psychologist for same. When your body experiences intense emotions, you may enter the body’s “fight or flight” mode. This response activates your sympathetic nervous system by sending adrenaline and other chemicals racing through your body, raising your heart rate, making your breathing shallower, and causing your muscles to feel tight and tense. Breathing deeply and evenly will help you feel calmer and will provide much-needed oxygen to your body, helping you relax. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen below your rib cage. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose for a count of 4. Feel your lungs and abdomen expand as you fill them with air. Hold the breath for 1 or 2 seconds, then slowly release the breath through your mouth. Aim for 6-10 deep breaths per minute. If a full 4-count is difficult for you, you can start with a 2-count and work your way up with practice. Just try to make your breaths as deep and even as you can Try progressive muscle relaxation. Progressive muscle relaxation, or PMR, can help you calm down by systematically tensing and releasing your muscles in groups. It’s a good way to relieve stress and tension. PMR can also help you learn to recognize the signs of physical tension in your body If you can, give yourself 15 minutes in a quiet, relaxing environment. If you can’t find this, though, you can do a few PMR techniques even while you sit at your desk. Sit and make yourself comfortable. Loosen any tight clothing. Take deep, cleansing breaths. You can start at your forehead and work your way down, or start at your toes and work your way up. In this example, we’ll start at the toes. Begin by curling your toes as tightly as you can. Hold this tension for 5 seconds, then relax. Enjoy the relaxing sensations for 15 seconds, then move to the next group of muscles. Tighten your calves by pulling your toes toward your face as hard as you can. Hold the tension for 5 seconds, then relax. Again, allow yourself to relax for 15 seconds, then move on. Continue tensing each group of muscles for 5 seconds, then releasing them. Take a 15-second break in between each group, noticing what it feels like when that tension is released. Progress through each of the following groups: toes, feet, thighs, hips and buttocks, stomach, back, shoulders, upper arms, forearms, hands, lips, eyes, forehead. If you don’t have time to tense and relax all the groups, focus on the ones in your face. Relaxing your facial muscles can ease feelings of stress. Studies have even shown that relaxing your muscles and smiling can make you feel happier and calmer. Write down the evidence which supports or contradicts the thought that produced the emotion. Start connecting the dots about why you reacted the way you did. When you begin to think about it, you might realize that since nobody gets along well with this particular boss, he can't afford to actually fire anyone, because the department is too short-staffed. For example, you may have let slip something that you should not have said which angered him, but which it is too late to retract. His reaction at lunch may not be what you originally thought it was. Ask yourself if this thing would matter to you 1 year down the line? Is it worth spending your energy on?
