Hello, Thanks to Lybrate, It helps in spreading awareness about Homeopathy. I don't know if you are aware about major systemic side effects of antidepressant. Homeopathy is practiced over 250 years, science is based on food habits, sleep, and sexual behaviour. Please write in private msg for treatment and more details. As homeopathic medicine are proved on healthy human being, it does not have side effects. Your complaints suggestive of stress can be cured with one month treatment.

He might be filling up some void through substance abuse. Let him address a deeper emotional issues which he is suppressing through tobacco, otherwise he will resort to some other addiction after withdrawal of tobacco.

Alcoholism is alcohol addiction. If you?re ready to stop drinking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from alcoholism and alcohol abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating alcoholism is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of alcoholism. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I have body pain for last two days.What can i do?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I have body pain for last two days.What can i do?
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Dear, I am sorry to say that you cannot delay the process of ageing. But there is an old saying. Body gets aged and mind never. That should be a motivation to you. Initially there will be disappointments when you feel that you are ageing. But that disappointments brings more motivation and you will become active soon. Don't worry. Take care.

Depression and anxiety go hand-in-hand often. The morning time is when you need to be alert but the depression may take a toll too. However, if you exercised first thing in the morning, it will make a lot of difference to your whole day. 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.

You are not expressed your problems properly. I think you are maintaining secrecy. Suffering yourself. Always alone, thinking too much about small things. Everything is solvable. Some problems we have a capacity to solve it. But some problems required to take help of who are very close to you. Search who is your closed one and express them. They may not solved directly your problems. But it may give great relief to you. You get moral support and good advices. When the internal frustration thoughts are increased then the possibility of depression. So better to explore your thoughts to friends. Do not be sit alone. Do not spend too much time on one aspect. Divert the thoughts in to other aspects. If uncontrollable then tell others. Be friendly and be sociable it is always best to you. Ok best of luck. My best wishes to come out this problem. God bless you.

Any such unfortunate incident with an individual may just be a trigger to precipitate an underlying psychiatric disorder. It would be rather inappropriate to speculate about his diagnosis or treatment from such an inadequate data. However I would certainly recommend you to visit a psychiatrist with your friend for a good plan of management. Take care.

I am looking for one answer. Just one word answer that a patient who is moderately depressed from 2-3 years. Can he beat it with exercise, CBT, Diet, yoga and relaxing techniques without taking any antidepressants. I am doing exercise daily. I am getting better and better day by day. I don't want to stop this improvement. But as the time progresses I am in doubt whether really I can be alright with exercise alone?

Possibly no. Exercise and cbt have a positive effect on depression and are proven to improve depression. However in your case, the duration of illness i. E. 2-3 years is striking. This is just because chronic depression usually requires medications and a holistic approach with ruling our other causes of such depression like hormonal imbalances and specific vitamin deficiencies.

How to make our body fit and energetic and concentrate more in studies which is my main problem faced by me so please reply to my query please please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. 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 sugar and junk food.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Are you suggesting that at this age you are not working and still depending on the family to support you? since you are not clear, I have to speculate. If this is not true, then don? t bother about your family since you are earning. Also money is important in life but it is not the be-all-and-end-all of everything. In fact the more money you have, the more the problems. Learn to detach from money because it can incite greed. You must learn to live with what you have. Many people get into so many problems because they want more things, which unfortunately money can get. But you cannot go on acquiring things for immediate gratification. You must learn discipline: the number one tool for incorporating discipline is the ability to delay gratification. In other words you must be patient, accept some pain and wait for the right time to get things. The greed for money can lead to worshiping it to make it your god.
