He smokes cigarettes daily nearly 5 to 6. And he also suffering from pails. Please suggest for that. I'm waiting for your reply.

General Physician, Mumbai
To sop smoking, simply engage mind in better activities like reading, hearing nice talks or music and keeping mind busy in services. Eating vegetarian foods and fruits and drinking cow's milk in night before sleeping also helps. Self determination is required.

General Physician, Mumbai
When you are not studying take break with some nice soothing music, divine music or walking outside especially in morning and listening to audio on your earphones, and do some meditation and yoga to balance mind. Avoid meat, eggs and intoxicants and too much time of social media and television.

I want to write a book.
I want to lose weight.
I want to make more money.
I want to change the world.
I want to….

Most of us have a list of “I want to’s” but far fewer of us go any further than that.


It’s not because we can't, although sometimes we like to tell ourselves that.

It’s really because we don't want to bad enough.

“If it’s important you’ll find a way. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse.”

It’s time to take inventory and decide.

Who do you want to become? What do you want to achieve?

There’s no better day than today to start turning those “I want to’s” into “to do’s.”

It might not be easy and it probably won't happen overnight but your life, your mission, whatever it is you were called to do is too important for you to settle. Don't keep putting it off. Don't keep wishing and dreaming. Start doing.

And, when you want to give up… read this again and keep going.

Every success comes at a price (time, effort, attention). You just need to be willing to pay it.

Schizophrenia - Know the Causes Behind it

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Schizophrenia - Know the Causes Behind it

Schizophrenia has been recognized as a mental disorder that combines symptoms like hallucinations with distorted thinking and others like fright and severe paranoia. This condition is one that gets progressively worse over time and leads to delusional thinking. Oversleeping and complaining of fatigue are usually the earliest signs of this condition's onset. Eventually, it becomes a debilitating factor in the life of the patient, who will not be able to function in a normal way due to the severe symptoms.

Read on to know more about the types and causes of this condition:

  1. Genetic Causes: Schizophrenia may be caused due to genetic factors and it may be a learned or inherited disorder. It is known to affect patients who have a parent or a sibling who may have suffered from this condition. Yet, one must also remember that Schizophrenia can only be influenced by genetics, and not determined by the same.
  2. Environmental Causes: When there has been an exposure to a viral infection during the pre natal stage, the patient is susceptible to this condition. Also, it may affect children who have been subject to the loss of a parent or separation at an early age. Physical and emotional abuse in one's childhood may also bring on this condition. Low level of oxygen at the time of birth is one of the causes of this condition in many patients.
  3. Anomalies in Brain Structure: When the brain ventricles of the patient are enlarged, he or she may be prone to this condition. Also, anomalies in the temporal lobes and amygdala have links with the onset of this condition.
  4. Types: A wide variety of mental and medical conditions can manifest with psychotic symptoms that must be considered in the differential diagnosis of schizophreniform disorder. These include psychotic disorder due to another medical condition or its treatment; delirium or major neurocognitive disorder; substance/medication-induced psychotic disorder or delirium; depressive or bipolar disorder with psychotic features; schizoaffective disorder; other specified or unspecified bipolar and related disorder; depressive or bipolar disorder with catatonic features; schizophrenia; brief psychotic disorder; delusional disorder; other specified or unspecified schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorder; schizotypal, schizoid, or paranoid personality disorders; autism spectrum disorder; disorders presenting in childhood with disorganized speech; attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder; obsessive-compulsive disorder; posttraumatic stress disorder; and traumatic brain injury.

    Since the diagnostic criteria for schizophreniform disorder and schizophrenia differ primarily in duration of illness, the discussion of the differential diagnosis of schizophrenia also applies to schizophreniform disorder. 

Brief psychotic disorder - Schizophrenia disorder differs in duration from brief psychotic disorder, which has a duration of less than 1 month to residual schizophrenia.

Residual Schizophrenia is a condition where the patient does not experience the various debilitating symptoms of the condition, and is on the road to recovery. Yet, even in this type of Schizophrenia, the patient will not really show any interest in life and the activities around him or her. Finally, the last type of Schizophrenia is Schizoaffective Disorder which is characterised by the symptoms of Schizophrenia as well as the symptoms of major mood disorders. When combined, this condition can lead to major complications and complex behavior.

A patient suffering from this condition will need to see a mental health specialist like a psychiatrist or a psychologist on an immediate basis. The treatment will be carried out on a long term basis for the results to start appearing.

See you think and perceive that you have lost everything. Take time to reflect and practically evaluate whether you have actually lost everything or its just in your mind even if something did not go the way you wanted it to be, then also its never to late to start again. Quite possible this time you do better than last time. Find ways to realize your potential and act on it too. All the best.

My Friend has chest pain and shortness in breath, its first time and no one has this problem in his family. He doesn't have smoking and drinking habit s. Thank you sir.

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
It may be due to exposure to cold or he may be suffering from lower respiratory tract infection. Needs investigation to reach final diagnosis. Check for other symptoms if any. Meanwhile you may go for medicated oil massage followed by fomentation.

Doctor, I am a smoker I want to know amount of tar in my lungs, I am smoking from last 4 years daily 3 cigarettes. Now a days m feeling weak. I want to know what test are recommended. Is chest xray enough for it?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Chest x ray will just show the superficial extent of damage. For knowing the functional capacity of your lungs, get a pulmonary function test done, it a test done wherein you will be asked to blow inside a machine in various ways, so that your lung capacity can be plotted. Stop smoking immediately, all the best. For lung damage consult a pulmonologist, for smoking cessation if you are not able to do on your own, consult a psychiatrist.

Good morning, I played volleyball yesterday. And due to bad way of passing the ball, I got injured in my 2 fingers of left hand. My fingers have got swelling and it is creating little bit pain and giving problem in movement of finger. But I don't think that I got fractured because It would give more pain. Kindly tell me suggestions to improve my fingers. Thank you in advance.

Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Fractures like hair line fracture could not be associated with severe pain. I would suggest you to go for an x-ray done. Delay in treatment may lead to deformities. Meanwhile: 1) try and keep your hand in anti gravity position (it will help to reduce swelling) 2) use ice pack 3-4 times a day. 3) don't mobilize your hand much, if its a fracture then by moving your limb you actually are aggravating the condition. Once the reports are out, go for physiotherapy for further management. Regards!

Ask him to join singing class. He will be changed slowly. Thats good Do not expect things fast. Do something where he needs to speak or ask him to be a teacher in a coaching centre. Only 6 months. Then see the result.

For e.g. L lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed prefer keeping to myself all the time Please help me.

General Physician, Nashik
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

I have to concentrate on my studies I have distraction's I am thinking about my friends (2) all the time. Their behaviour is not good they avoid me sometimes. I have to forget them completely and one of those is my roommate I feel depressed sometimes thinking too much of them. I have to concentrate and get a job I'm n my final year btech please help me out.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
You have to try not to think about other's matters and focus on your studies. Because after the final year of college you will get a job individually and not with your friends. So this is your personal matter. If you still have hard time concentrating on your study, try Brahmi 3X (homeopathic medicine) once in a day before you start reading.
