Shiman dr. Sahab, namaskar, is samay subah ke 7/54 ho rahe hain. Aaj bhee mein abhee pooja kar ke uthaa hoon. Thaakur ji ka snaan ityadi to ho jaata hai, lekin dhyaan karte samay dimaag mein bhayanak shaklne aur drishy banne lagte hai. Man mein dar lagne lagta hai. Sanshay peda hone lagte hai, jeise ki shankar ji ko manu ya vishnu ji ko, achcha hanumaan ji mera kasht door karenege. In sabke chalte meri pooja adhoori rah jaati hai, to bhee man dara sa rehata hai. 2. Din bhar neend ki khumaari bani rehati hai. Jiske chalte mein apne parivaar se bhee door hota ja raha hoon.

Dear, aapko obsessive thoughts aatha hai, pooja ke samai. Obsessive thoughts mane ocd nahi. Aap un thoughts se darte ho, is liye woh thoughts baar baar aatha hai. Aap pareshaan hote hai, or jyaada pareshaan hote ho, aur thoughts fir aate hai. Aap to bhakth hai. Ache dil wale ho. Bura kaam nahi karte ho. Aap jo bhi karte ho, aapse bhagwaan karaata hai. Samaj lo, bhagwan aapka dushman nahi, balki dosth hai. Dosth kabhi dosth ko pareshaan kar saktha hai? vishwaas karo, bhagwaan sabh sambhaal lega. Take care.

Is psychosis treatable? What is are the types? How to get rid of psychosis? How is it developed?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Is psychosis treatable? What is are the types? How to get rid of psychosis? How is it developed?
Psychosis may occur as a result of a psychiatric illness like schizophrenia. In other instances, it may be caused by a health condition, medications, or drug use. Possible symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, talking incoherently and agitation. The person with the condition usually isn't aware of his or her behaviour. Treatment may include medication and talk therapy. It is Common and More than 1 million cases per year (India) Treatable by a medical professional Requires a medical diagnosis Lab tests or imaging not required. The following list provides the names and brief descriptions of different types of psychotic illness. Schizophrenia The term schizophrenia refers to a type of psychosis in which a person experiences some psychotic symptoms for at least six months, with a significant decline in the person’s ability to function. The symptoms and length of the illness vary from person to person. Schizophreniform disorder This type of psychosis is the same as schizophrenia except that the symptoms have lasted for less than six months. The illness may completely resolve or may persist and progress to other psychiatric diagnoses, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or schizoaffective disorder. Bipolar illness With this type of illness the symptoms of psychosis relate more to mood disturbance than to thought disturbance. A person will experience mood elevations (mania) and sometimes depression, which may persist or fluctuate in intensity. When psychotic symptoms arise, they often reflect the person’s mood. For example, people who are depressed may hear voices that put them down. People who are experiencing an elevated mood may believe they are special and are capable of doing amazing things. Schizoaffective disorder During this type of psychosis, a person will experience symptoms of schizophrenia and symptoms of a mood disturbance, either at the same time or alternating over time. Depression with psychotic features Sometimes a person will experience a severe depression with symptoms of psychosis without the mania associated with bipolar disorder. This type of depression is referred to as a psychotic depression or depression with psychotic features. Drug-induced psychosis The use of drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, LSD, amphetamines and alcohol can sometimes cause psychotic symptoms to appear. Once the effects of the drugs or alcohol wear off, the symptoms of psychosis will usually resolve. However, the symptoms themselves may require medical treatment. Organic psychosis Symptoms of psychosis may appear as a result of a physical illness or a head injury. A thorough medical examination should be conducted to rule out or confirm this type of psychosis. This examination may involve some tests or investigations such as a brain scan. Brief psychotic disorder Sometimes symptoms of psychosis come on suddenly and, in some cases, are triggered in response to a major stress in the person’s life, such as a death in the family. This type of psychosis usually lasts less than a month. Delusional disorder This type of psychosis consists of very strong and fixed beliefs in things that are not true. Changes in perception, such as hallucinations, are not seen in this illness. A delusional disorder does not usually affect a person’s ability to function. It may be difficult to make a diagnosis in the early stages. Therefore it may not be helpful to focus on a particular diagnosis. It is also important to remember that everyone’s experience of psychosis is different. Course and outcome will vary from person to person.

Seems you are suffering from erectile dysfunction. Factors required for hard erection are hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Erectile disorder can result from any of these problems. Lifestyle changes like regular exercise, quitting alcohol and tobacco and exercises particularly meant for erectile dysfunction can help you.

Hi there, Sertraline is better drug as far as social anxiety is concerned. However, whatever you're doing, do it with your treating psychiatrist's consultation. Also, discuss with your therapist if he can teach you mindful meditation and offer forms of behavioural therapies. Good luck.

Relieving Stress With Aromatherapy

MD - Alternative Medicine
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
Relieving Stress With Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy involves the usage of essential plant oils in order to improve one's well-being and relieve stress. These oils are sometimes put in a diffuser and allowed to permeate the surrounding air. Stress management can be done using aromatherapy.

How Does Aromatherapy Work? Aromatherapy works by several methods such as aerial diffusion, topical application and inhalation. It can also be used rectally, vaginally or orally in case of infections and congestions. Use of natural essential oils is recommended as synthetic oils are not as effective as natural ones and the synthetic chemicals are harmful to the skin.

Holistic Aromatherapy: Having a massage where essential oils are used is known as holistic aromatherapy. The smell of the essential oil along with the oil getting absorbed by the skin or a tissue massage helps in relieving the worst muscle and joint pains or tension. Holistic aromatherapy is one of the most common ways of aromatherapy.

Along with stress relief, aromatherapy also helps in boosting the body's immunity. The immune system of the body is strengthened by stimulation of chemicals in the brain, which fight infections.

Indirect or Direct Inhalation: Indirect and direct inhalation are primary methods for application of essential oils. By inhaling the oils from a safe distance, our brain tends to slow down and ends up in a level of deep relaxation.

Stress causes a lot of serious health problems in our body and the inhalation modes of aromatherapy are excellent procedures to relax emotional turmoils that lead to extreme stress.

Aesthetic Aromatherapy: This method of aromatherapy involves the use of essential oils in diffusers, burners or in a bath. This popular method is availed by people of different ages. Bathing salts, bath beads and shower gels are made using essential oils, and they soothe the skin. The skin gets pampered and stress is relieved. Scented candles also contain essential oils and provide refreshment and relaxation.

Essential Oils: Essential oils are the main instruments of aromatherapy. These oils are extracted from plants using the methods of steam distillation, cold press and absolute.

The most popular essential oils which are used in aromatherapy for relieving stress are geranium, lavender, peppermint, chamomile, jasmine or lemon grass. Before using these oils, read the labels on the pack carefully to know about the natural ingredients, and they should always be diluted before using in jojoba, olive or coconut oil. The oils can also be applied to handkerchiefs, pillows and other objects.

Aromatherapy uses essential oils to give you great relief from stress. The benefits of aromatherapy are great, and the method is very simple and easy to follow. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

What are the symptoms of Schizophrenia? Are violent temperament, inability to see reason, and imagining enemies some of the symptoms?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are a wide variety of symptoms depending on the type of schizophrenia. What you describe is indeed some of the symptoms of a type called paranoid schizophrenia. There will be delusions of persecution and suspicion over everyone including family and other trusted ones. Paranoids are specifically tormented by abnormal fear. What they do however is that instead of dealing with that fear, they escalate anger over it and act violent. They are extremely sensitive to rejection or the anticipation of it. Their thinking can be quite illogical and distorted. They imagine everything with suspicion and withdraw into themselves. They must be put on medication and a lot of occupational therapy and intense psychotherapy are needed to mitigate the symptoms. Kindly seek a psychiatrist's help immediately and do not attempt alternative therapy until a psychiatric evaluation has been performed. A correct diagnosis must be made and prescription followed accordingly. It is very difficult to attempt treatment with other forms of therapy, which lack the tools to tackle this serious mental disorder. In fact they may cause irreparable damage even with good intentions.

Arsenicum alb 200-- one dose (6 to 10 pills) in the morning and one in the evening 2. Gelsemium 200--one dose (6 to 10 pills) in the morning and one in the evening.

Drinking alcohol while taking antidepressants is generally not advised because alcohol can make depression worse. It can also increase the side effects of some antidepressants, such as drowsiness, dizziness and co-ordination problems. Therefore, it’s best to avoid drinking alcohol if you're taking antidepressants, particularly if you're going to drive or operate machinery.

How to get out of depression. I have just broked up with my girl friend :( please help i cant live anymore.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Nobody is worth dying for unless you were in the act of saving them. You may give your heart to somebody, even your mind, but never give your life for someone. Learn to accept that she does not want you for some reason or the other. You don?t want a girl who has been coerced into the relationship!It does not mean anyway that you are a bad person, a useless person, or of a questionable character. If you are any of these, then you have reason enough to work on those issues and get to become a better person. In love strange things happen, and strange bedfellows come together defying all reason. So you never know who is going to come around and love you to bits: that is the kind of person you want and need to hook up with. Look at the reasons why this relationship failed, and if there are many reasons pointing at you, learn to change them for yourself. This is an episodal depression i.E. It was stimulated by an event. When you deal with the event, all things will come to square one. Go talk to a counselor and express all your feelings and identify what went wrong and what you can do about it for future relations.

Hi I am boy and I can't concentrate on my study please help me that what should I do because my exam will held next week and I can't study properly?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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, 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 are 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. If it is only starting trouble, then I suggest that you do group study or study with another friend but both need to be really serious.

My question is for psychiatrist I'm 20 year old engineering student I had a girl friend with whom I was in relationship for almost 2 years there we're no misunderstanding or any trust based issues between us. Our relationship was going well intact we both loved each other and were ready for marriage too. But all of a sudden two months back my girlfriend ditched me. And didn't even tell me proper reason or why is she breaking up with me, but after many days of struggle and hard push I got t know some how that she is not even committed to any other boy or she doesn't even like anybody else and she still loves me. But last couple of weeks ago I forced her to tell why was she avoiding me so much being rude too Me so much and no texts and call all of a sudden, and I was shaken by her answer, and I'm completely going mad in my life The reason she gave was that she needs a break till I and she complete her under graduate and later once I'm done with job if I remember her at that time she wants me to approach her parents and ask for her to get married to me, till then she doesn't want t keep any kinda links or contact or relationship with me. She says she wants me in her life but at the same time she tells me that" she doesn't care about me and go to hell idontcare" kinda stuffs Earlier she was having lots of hopes on our relationship but now she has left with 0% hopes idk why. She says to take care of my life and future but I I want to lead my life with her But she is like this. I'm totally going mad and hell lot of stress I can't even study for my exams and not able to concentrate.

Hi lybrate-user, its better to let go of people who do not want to stay in our lives. She for sure is giving excuses for a reason she is not ready to disclose. The reason is something else, but someone who does not even owe you an explanation for her behavior and cold attitude you should not chase them. Infact, she has lost you so with time if she wants you she should come back to you not the other way round. To test a person sometimes you need to leave caring about them, leave her on her own terms and focus on your studies its your studies and career that will take you long way, people will come and go but remember right people will stay.

What is the treatment for anxiety problem? how it can be cured? how much time it will take to cure? is the anxiety is a psychological problem?

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
Anxiety is a psychological problem. You cannot fix a time limit to cure anxiety because it is a defense mechanism of your body. You should not try to cure it. If you cure it, your body' s defense mechanism is shattered. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and self esteem building therapy through mobile. Take care.

I wanted to be an actress now wherever I go I fall in love with men who resemble some actors unintentionally without reciprocation and I can't do any work except thinking about them this is a repeated pattern.I won't like ordinary men so I am still single, I am 36.Victim of abuse by father n domestic violence n ill treatment by relatives n classmates. Could not study after graduation. Suffer homelessness and on injection of clopixol depot fortnight.Women generally dislike me men try to take advantage please suggest proper rehabilitation center n cure.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think your aspiration to become an actress had failed but you may be still indulging in the fantasy of that failed desire by at least wanting to be in love with a celebrity in the film industry. Your adulation of the celebrity is to identify with their achievements and a desire to own them. These are additive in nature; to the personality and the glamour they enjoy. This failure can be very disturbing. Together with that the childhood abuse and the ill-treatment by others in life has been disquieting at the least. This has all contributed to the weight gain and to the mental disturbance. Now it is important to do the right thing first, for the mental illness, and to deal with the pain of all the abuse. Then the understanding of love and the dearth of it in your life has to be considered and the distortions cleared. It is possible that you might be mixing up sex with love, and innocuously offering it seeking love but the men take advantage of this need and hunger of yours failing to recognize the actual deprivation. You may unwittingly use seduction with males, who will fall gullibly to the guile, but that this same thing may invite the disapproval and disdain of the female companions. All this can get very complicated, if not properly understood. Your medical treatment must be supported by some psychotherapy to adequately address all the psychosocial aspects of your situation. Ideally, you should spend time in a rehabilitation center, and in residential settings to work out these issues in an intense one-to-one treatment. I have no idea of any such center in my experience so far. However, I suggest that you do the next best thing, by seeking help in an outpatient setting. I recommend you work with a female therapist before transferring to a male therapist, ideally and eventually, for a satisfactory recovery.

Yes, you are definitely under some stress. Go meet a counselor and get some help with that and you will be fine.Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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.

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.

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 are 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 junk food.

I could not concentrate on my studies properly. So could you please advice me what to do n what is the cause of it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thanks for the query. Since when do have these concentration difficulties in studies? Starting from simple to more complex issues; we usually are able to concentrate better when whatever we are reading/doing is interesting for us & NOT MERELY DRAB WORK! Hence, you can try to make studies interesting by devising punmonics, trying to figure out practical applications of whatever you are studying with help of teachers & elders around. Secondly, try & choose subjects/courses which you are really interested in studying & just do not study for the heck of getting a degree/academic qualification. Lastly, studies have time & again proven that average concentration span of human mind is around 30 minutes. Hence, if you are able to study for 30 minutes; you are actually doing good! You can devise a 30 minutes study-10 minutes break (strictly 10 minutes!) schedule to improve your concentration. Good Luck.
