You should go to a dental clinic for physical examination to find out the cause of the disease, because treatment depends upon the cause. May have gingival hyperplasia in this disease gums get enlarged. Gingivectomy is the treatment after confirmed diagnosis.

I am 26 years old and I am addicted to alcohol from 2-3 years and I tried a lot to quit but I failed. Please give me some type of solution.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

Is bipolar 3 completely treatable and patient returns to normal routine most of his life?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hello, in general bipolar disorder (irrespective of 1, 2, 3) are not completely curable. But with proper course of medicines & lifestyle management, one can lead a very healthy & productive life. In general, we advise 5 years of continued medicines for bipolar disorder. If patient remains symptom free for 5 years, we attempt to reduce & stop medicines. If during this period, symptoms return, then medicines are continued lifelong. Hope this helps. Good luck.

You are not happy. Something is bothering you. But probably you are not able to understand what is causing this sadness and why you feel like crying. I guess you have lot of suppressed emotions. Please try to understand what is going on in your mind. Do not try to avoid or neglect your true feelings. Kindly talk to a counsellor who will help you to get in touch with your innermost feelings and who also will help you to relieve you of the stress caused by this. Once your suppressed emotions get a healthy outlet, you will start feeling lighter and then you will start enjoying life. All the best.

Is there any treatment for it or not.

Homeopath, Pune
Hello, U haven't mentioned whether your father had been diagnosed some sort of neurological disorder, or has atleast undergone some investigations. There are various neurological disorder which can cause such forgetfulness symptoms, the very common being Alzheimer's disorder. As per my opinion, your father has some neurological disorder, but few patients for attention seeking may also develop such symptoms intentionally. Let me know if there's a cause diagnosed. If the case is later one, surely he needs psychological support. There are medicines for neurological disorders if the case is so. For any further queries, feel free to text back.

My brother is suffering from psychiatric problem(Schizophrenia) since 25 years. Medicine is continuing. His behavior is like normal, but he is purchasing news papers and wrtting in news paper for whole day. No improvement brought over that. Can You suggest how to escape from that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your brother is obviously not on a rehabilitation program of occupational therapy. Mere medical approach will not suffice. He needs to know how to spend his time productively; and his mind and body needs to be engaged in some useful manner. His mind is already busy with disturbing thoughts and it needs to be distracted and focused in activities that can train the brain to trigger more healthy neuronal pathways and thus become a healthy person. He may ideally contact a psychotherapist for this follow up. Additionally, I could suggest some exercises that he could do to serve the same purpose. You may contact me if you need them.

I am a straight cross dresser and it plays on my mind all the time. What should I do?

I am a straight cross dresser and it plays on my mind all the time. What should I do?
It is called transvestism. It may be little relieving for you to wear a ladies garment just to get peace of mind for some time, but it has serious social and personal percussion. It is better to get treated. I advise you to consult a nearby psychiatrist who may treat you well with a SSRI group of drug for some time.

I am feeling irritate from long time my nature becomes angry so please help me what can I do.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, 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.

Please suggest me some tips to increase the memory power and concentration. Does hardworking people always succeed in Life?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Hard Work brings success. No doubt Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear, you are disappointed. Disappointment sometimes gives you symptoms like depression. Everything in your life will change. You will also change one day or other. Nothing is immortal. You just can't say, you cannot live without your ex-girl friend. You will live without her. So don't be so adamant. Be elastic. That is the solution. Take care.

Mood fluctuations can be controlled with the medications you are on. But Zero level will be there for sometime and you may have to keep an eye on your symptoms subjectively.

I am applying for immigration to a certain country. I am a regular smoker. Will this be a problem in the medical examination.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, if it can be detected it means you are a heavy user. It is normally visible on the lungs, if an X-ray is taken. Patches of lungs will be covered by the tobacco tar and it will be visible on the X-ray.

There is nothing called "behaving like a gay" He might very well be bisexual and that's a perfectly normal sexual identity.

Dear lybrate user, high sugar levels are definately a cause for you to worry about your mother. Stress can be major contributing factor for high sugar levels. It appears to me that your mother is emotional kind of person. She may not sharing her feelings with anyone. But that causes tension. She needs an outlet to express her emotions. I would suggest you to take her to a counsellor who will help her to relieve of her intense feelings. Once her tension is released then she will be able to think rationally and will have lesser stress.
