Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

I am suffering from severe tinnitus. I know there is no cure for tinnitus, but is there any therapy which can help me to get reduce its effect so that I can concentrate on my studies.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Tinnitus and vertigo is very common these days in any age group due to excess of noise exposure and damage to inner ear, humming sound, whistling and giddiness are the problems which are getting in people are very common these days, these get complicated when they are not taken care of at proper time whistling or buzzing in the ear is getting commoner these days in people of all ages. Most common causes is wax or any object in the ear, after getting your ears clean these gets over. But if ears are already clean than this is worrisome. Common causes which are responsible are high cholesterol diet, alcohol, smoking, loud noises, cervical spondylosis, trauma (self or inflicted) over the ears. If this is the situation than report to your ent doctor immediately tinnitus is basically due to hampered blood supply to ears due to which ears start dying. As this process starts a person starts hearing noises. When a person starts hearing noises then it is already late diagnosis as these noises gets heard by someone when they are of 40 db intensity, below that threshold these noises are not heard. So it is already to late and the damage has become permanent. Problem with these noises are that we can control at what level person goes to his specialist otherwise these noises keep on increasing and can give you headache frustration and depression. Get ct scan also done.

Forgetfullness and decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist in person for effective treatment. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, rehearse all these will improve your memory and concentration.

hello doctor. Some one in my circle is very much addicted toward alcohol. He is about 30 years old, he consumed alcohol in large amount. And and perform unacceptable activities. After drunk he can't able to take a step. He also abuse family member. please suggest what step taken to get rid off. Is it right to admit him in any hospital like (nisha mukti kendra).

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, before taking him to any rehabilitation centre kindly try the following therapy at home:- mix 30 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q in a bottle of 2litres of water. Keep that medicine mixed bottle isolated. Whenever the patient asks for water to drink give him that medicine mixed water to drink. Since the medicine is colourless, odourless & tasteless, the patient would not be able to identify the medicine present in water. He will easily drink 2 litres of water in a day. Thus he will intake the medicine along with water without even knowing it. Repeat the same process everyday. This medicine shows effective result by decreasing the craving for alcohol within just 2 weeks.

Rather than worrying who is apt to treat anxiety neurosis. It is ideal for you to get the severity of anxiety disorder evaluated, if the symptoms are mild, you can be treated by CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) alone or medications. If the symptoms are moderate a combination of CBT and medicines, if severe medications first and after improvement CBT can be planned. Medications are given only by a psychiatrist as well as diagnosis ruling our medical causes for anxiety is done by a psychiatrist. CBT can be given by psychiatrist or clinical psychologist, who are trained in the procedure. Hope this helps you to decide. All the best.

Work addiction or giving more time to work is a good quality so that he excels in work and life but if ignores normal lief you can make him understand lovingly that life and work have to be seen from different angle and both should not go on a collision course

Hello I don't understand what is going with me: I am really very sick I think. I am getting anger very earliest. And saying anything to one who is taking with me! I can't understand anyone. I am feeling like I should die.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You seem to be hurting from something in the past or having worries about the future. In any case you are probably using anger as a quick fix to reduce your emotional disturbance which is actually more detrimental for you as well as your relationships. Anger is a secondary emotion and hides many primary emotions like sadness, fear, anxiety, embarrassment etc which the person doesn't want to show as their self esteem can be hurt by this. I suggest that you explain your anger or whichever emotion that you are actually feeling and talk about it. This is called assertive talking. You can learn this in counselling how to explain your anger and talk about it, how to show your anger without damaging your relationships ships and your health. How to draw boundaries with people who hurt/ make fun of you. Also remember that people are very different from you and will have different opinions, perspectives, thoughts and prejudices about the same topic. So you need to develop tolerance, understanding and acceptance for these differences because no one is right or wrong. There multiple ways of solving a problem or doing things. You need to live harmoniously in society with people for your own survival needs. So adjustment and flexibility of thoughts is a desired quality to lead a peaceful and purposeful life.

Dear , you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were your wife disappointed in the near past? please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise.

I suffer from depression on and off. What could be the reason?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, you should be able to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. You are disappointed because of a reason you know very well and therefore you are worried, sleepless, sad etc. These things happen. Nothing to worry. Ask yourself, why should I worry and cry over and over again instead of finding an alternative? once you introspect, your problem will start solving itself. Take care.

If you are under stress, you will tend to lose memory. So if you deal with the stress by meeting with a counselor, a lot of your problems will be resolved and memory will happily return. Concentration precedes memory so follow these instructions to feel better bout it. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 all junk food.

Dear lybrate user. Nicotine is addictive and other chemicals from the smoke could cause cancer and respiratory problems. Therefore there is no safe smoking. Even one cigarette once in a week destroys some cells in your lungs and could form gangrene and then cancer. Quit smoking. Take care.
