Normally marijuana or ganja does not have such results but it is commonly seen that people selling them lace it with chemicals to give a bigger kick and is very harmful. Now since you have left it, rest assured, all effects will be reversed. So. Do not worry. There is no problem now.

How can I turn my study room with positive vibrations. How can I make room with positive when I have to study.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Here are some ways to achieve a winning room that’s perfect for studying: 1. Remove items that can be very distracting such as TVs and game consoles 2. Always have everything at hand, including outlets for your laptop and tablet 3. Place a great cabinet which can house your books and notebooks 4. Choose lighter colors on the walls as darker ones like chocolate brown or deep greens can induce sleep 5. Find a way to help you manage the room temperature – not too hot that it makes you sweat or too cold that you’d rather doze off 6. Make the room have access to natural lighting as architecturally possible by taking down walls or making the windows bigger.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 2 drops of mimulus + 2 drops of crab apple + 2 drops of white chestnut + 2 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose).

My father is 74 years old, he forgets everything like where he worked, what is home address etc, now days he wants to go out of the house frequently, once he had gone and didn`t returned one whole night, luckly we found him, what is his problem and treatment also.

Usually in old age, gradually memory power vl b decreased, along vth the decline in activity of brain function. But here, your father's condition, v can think of more rapid decline. Diseases like geriatric dementia (its a c/o related to memory loss in old age, alzheimer's, parkinson's disease r other any other neurological c/o shouldb excluded, where dopamine levels gradually come down. So, once take your father to show a neurologist to get ptoper check up, so that the diagnosis could b done, accordingly the t/talso as per requiremnt. Dont delay.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder - How Can You Deal With It?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS, DNB - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Oppositional Defiant Disorder - How Can You Deal With It?

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) is a disorder found in young children. Some common traits of a kid suffering from ODD include disobedient behavior, vindictiveness, manipulation, anger issues and irritability. These kids are known to have a negative mindset and are very difficult to get along with.

Here is a list of ways to deal with a kid suffering from ODD

  1. Communicate you expectations clearly: Kids suffering from this disorder feels an irresistible urge to control the environment they are residing in. It helps when you lay down simple, but mandatory house rules such as not raising the voice, being kind to others, refraining from hurting family and friends etc. This will not only keep their behavior in check, but will help them to make better choices.
  2. Be calm: Make sure you don’t give your kids any room to argue. Remind them that house rules apply for everyone. A back-and-forth argument will give your kids to impose his will on you. Explain in short the parental requirement that is expected. While giving instructions make sure you maintain a calm and collective dialect. Scolding or arguing your kid will do more harm than good.
  3. Use empathy: Instead of imposing parental will, it is best to be empathetic towards your defiant kid. For instance despite your repeated warnings, if your kid continues to watch TV or hook to the play station, remind them why it is important to go to bed early. Explain to them that you understand his feeling of having to leave the day for the night, but also tell them how his favorite activities can be continued the next day.
  4. Reward scheme: Kids with ODD reacts wonderfully to a reward system. For instance, if he successfully sticks to the rules laid in the house or behaves the way he is expected, he should be rewarded for the job well done. This reward scheme should be declared well in advance. As a parent, your job is to continuously remind him about the reward if he manages to do a job well. This incentive scheme will force your kid to be obedient.
  5. Don’t use false threats: Be very precise with your kid about the instruction you want them to follow. If you want him to brush his teeth before going to sleep, make it very clear to him what would be the consequences if the instruction is not followed. Do not use empty threats. As a parent, if you fail to keep your end of the bargain, your kid will not value your word anymore.
  6. Create a routine: A routine works well with kids suffering from ODD disorder. Every task should be time bound with more than one choice. For instance, between 5 PM to 7 PM allow them to do either of the two things like playing outdoor games or spending time with the play station.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate-user. Laughing a lot unnecessarily and starts talking irrelevant. You have to observe her more. What you think irrelevant may be relevant for her. Talk to her friends and get their opinion, and feedback. Then we will decide. For the time being, let her complete the studies. Take care.

Addiction of tobacco, smoking , drinking or drugs only depends on yours mind. You have to exercise your mind only. Eat green food and fruits more . Take apple in breakfast daily. Do walk in park and do yoga, exercise and meditation are golden remedies . Which trains your mind within a week. If you do it in an appropriate manner. Close your eyes and feel fresh air think that you do not have a need of any kind of addiction. Do it again and again. Try to find out other good things of your interest. Which will be more fruitful for whole life. Remember. Life is not for wasting. Make it useful and fruitful for urself and for others. make life worth living. dont just pass life, live life....

Ask her to practice deep breathing. She must eat healthy (leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, walnuts etc.) and on time. A good night sleep is must. No to coffee. No to alcohol. Can have dark chocolate instead. Take her out in greenery without your phones. Take Care For any further query feel free to contact me Thanks, Archana Narwani.

Hi doctor, I am into marriage for 16 years with 2 kids. Prior to marriage, we were dating 6 years. Our marriage was a big dissent and discontent in my family, as I am the only son. We have been fighting since we are married and prior to that also. I am a complex person, highly ambitious and ethical person. Need your advise in the matter.

After 16 years of marriage, if you and wife are content and happy and live separately from parents you need not bother them and stay happily with wife. You said you were fighting with parents and not wife, right?

I am female 29 years I am facing problem of anger. I get angry and irritate very often I feel like so many people are trying to take away my happiness and want to show me inferior how to tackle my anger and situation thnx.

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, MPHIL
Psychologist, Mumbai
Dear lybrate-user There can be many reasons for anger and irritability, the best way to understand if there are any underlying cause for it will be to consult a professional. Meanwhile you can incorporate some basic activities like listening to soothing music, exercising at least for minimum 20 mins daily, doing basic breathing exercises, walking for 10 mins everyday and a healthy diet. All of this will certainly calm you down but won't totally eliminate the issue. So please consult someone and take help for it. All the best!

Respected Sir, I perfectly understand what you are feeling and empathize with you completely. When it comes to our family and loved ones, no number of opinions is going to leave us entirely satisfied. However you have to understand that Depression tends to have a recurring course, in some individuals. The fact that you mentioned that she recovered within a few months of treatment leads me to believe that the diagnosis and treatment of the psychiatrist you consulted initially was accurate and spot on. Usually in treatment of 1st episode depression treatment needs to be continued for 9-12 months. If not, the chances of recurrence are very high. Even if you complete the entire duration of treatment which I doubt you did, there is a small chance of recurrence. Moreover in most cases, patients usually want to continue treatment with the same psychiatrist to whom they have opened up their innermost thoughts and feelings. Hence, I would advise you to discuss with the patient and then decide together regarding continuing treatment with the same psychiatrist but the change of psychiatrist is unlikely to bring about a change in the recurring course of depression if treatment is not continued regularly.

What will be effect if a person taking tobacco everyday? How does it can be control?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs 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, Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

This is possibly a panic attack. Detailed evaluation will obviously be needed to confirm the same. The good news though is that panic attacks can be controlled relatively easily. The background of depression will also need evaluation. It is very well known that depression and panic attacks commonly occur in the same person. Medicines are usually needed to treat. The medicines are NOT addictive or sleep medicines and are safe. take care!

I have a phobia which scare me to get into the enclosed places such as Lift, metro rail and closed room if some lock from outside. When i lock from inside there is no problem. I have cervical problem also. Please guide me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Phobias are fear-based problems where you exaggerate the stimulus to very frightful proportions. You have very high level of fear which you are not dealing with properly. You will need to meet with a counselor to identify that and find ways to counter it effectively. Now because of that fear you explain it rather clearly that if you are in control, the phobia is less: like closing the door from inside gives you control, whereas if it is shut from the outside you have no control. As a result you may have control issues too. The cervical problem could be stress induced - all connected to the scare. Fear is such a common human trait that there have been special schools devoted to the study and understanding of it. You are not alone but do reach out and resolve this soon for you to enjoy a normal and peaceful life.

Hello Lybrate user, Try these techniques: 1. Try to get full sleep. Take at least six hour rest for refreshment and relaxation of your mind. A fresh mind can concentrate more easily. 2. Take regular exercise. Brain takes its nutrients from blood for functioning properly. Physical exercise speeds up blood circulation to brain and brain gets well nourished as well as brain gets rid of waste products. Physical exercise is necessary for enhancing power of concentration. 3. Study in a place with no or less distractions. Your study place should be free from such things which may absorb your attention, i. E television, music, changing color bulbs, maps etc. Similarly study in quiet place free from sound distractions. 4. Avoid multi-tasking. While you study avoid playing with other things. Like you study as well as texting to friends on cell phone or making hair styles or one eye on television and one eye on book. Similarly study one subject in one time. 5. Have free mind. Throw off your mind all the irrelevant thoughts while you study. If you are obsessed by a certain idea, try to find a solution to your problem first. Stress makes it difficult to concentrate. 6. Fixation of priorities. Fixation of priorities, what should be done first and what should be done next, is very important for having full concentration in your work. If you don’t fix your priorities and work haphazardly, it is more likely you start thinking while doing one task “shouldn’t I do the other task first as that is more important”. This thought will not let you work with concentration. Make time-table for your subject and follow it. 7. Take short breaks in long study. If you study for a long time, you get bore and can’t maintain concentration on work. You should refresh your mind by taking short breaks to maintain your concentration on study. 8. Have interest in your study. Lack of motivation and interest leads to boredom and dividend attention so develop your interest in your studies. 9. Have good breakfast. Your breakfast should contain items with high protein content, carbohydrates and low sugar content. When you get up from sleep, have good diet though normally you should take light diet. 10. Don’t take too much tea or coffee. Tea or coffee has caffeine that gives you more strength for sometime but soon leaves you sluggish. 11. Concentration Exercises. There some exercises which improve your power of concentration i. E. Yoga, self-hypnosis, looking at a round spot on wall with full attention etc. There are books on these things you can study.
