I noticed that smoke is coming out from my stool and I am having yellow urination from 3-4 months. Even I had black stool in between. So, what does it imply? Is it a serious problem?

General Physician, Trivandrum
You maybe suffering from acute gasteroenteritis. It could be caused by food poisoning or viral or bacterial infection. You need to keep your body hydrated by drinking isotonic fluids like ors. You can take anti diarrhea medicine and anti vomiting medicine. If your symptoms persist, you will need to do blood tests and stool tests. You should take some soups or porridges like rice soup or porridge with added salt to supplement the lost fluid from your body. Natural fruit juices and coconut water is also very good to regain the electrolytes and fluids that are lost due to vomiting and diarrhea.

People start smoking in teen age, how could we prevent them as we know it is an adolescence related problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is not only an adolescent related problem. Though we can say that adolescents are vulnerable due to many factors. I see youngsters as little as 8 years smoking. It is the influence of peer group, upbringing, genetic issues, broken families, curiosity, hormonal influences, style, rebelliousness, availability of cigarettes, imitation of idols, feeling like an adult etc. There is poor education of the ill-effects of smoking, primarily. Children have not learned good coping skills and adjustability. Home lives are threatened by parental discord, addictions, broken relationships etc. The attraction for instant pleasure etc. Education is the best way to do preventive intervention. Creating awareness has reduced smoking in the West by 1% annually, but the lack of the same has increased the smoking in developing countries by 2% in the same period!

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, everyone is beautiful, we all are, you are. This is not the right basis to make assumptions about yourself. Everything is not based in skin colour and appearance. The right people will realize your worth and stay. Why would you want to stay with people who don't respect you the way you are and see you superficially. You are handsome and no less compared to anyone. Chin up and face everyone. Do not stop looking the right girl will enter your life soon. But yes girls love confident guys. So I guess you need to be one- confident and successful. All the best.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, live your life day to day, try being a little less judgmental. Find and develop friends who share your hobbies and interests. Man is a social animal and you will definitely be able to find some people with whom you can discuss about your life and interests. Do not be stuck in the past and what happened then. Its better to life life anew, see people and events afresh. With regards, sajen john.

I do smoking on regular basis I want to leave but can not suggest me what step should I take to leave smoking permanently.

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Tobacco Cessation - How It Is Good For You?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Tobacco Cessation - How It Is Good For You?

Benefits of tobacco cessation are many. You reduce your risk for hypertension, cancer, cardio-vascular diseases and other serious chronic diseases substantially, at whatever age you quit your nicotine habit. The earlier you quit, the more you benefit. If you quit before the age of 50, you bring down your risk of dying from smoking-related diseases by 50%. But if you’ve crossed 60, suffer from heart disease and/or hyper tension, you can manage these diseases better through tobacco cessation. 

Here are a few other health benefits of stopping tobacco use: 

  1. Reduces risks of heart disease, cancer especially lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) 
  2. Cuts down risks of Impotence due to erectile dysfunction in men, and fertility problems in women 
  3. Optic neuropathy affects the optic nerve that conducts visual signals from the eyes to the brain 
  4. Cataract Macular degeneration is breakdown of the tissue at the back of the eye 
  5. Psoriasis 
  6. Gum disease
  7. Losing teeth early 
  8. Osteoporosis or spongy, thin bones 
  9. Complications in pregnancy i.e. women who smoke have more complications during pregnancy and have low-birth babies. 

Your food and drink also tastes better once you kick the tobacco habit. 

So, how can you stop smoking? Are there any medications and strategies available? The answer is a definite ‘Yes’. Tobacco cessation has been honed into an art these days. 

  1. Clinics: There are tobacco cessation clinics that help you with tobacco cessation. These are manned by psychiatrists, who can provide detailed information, encouragement, and tips to stop smoking. 
  2. Medications: You can use many medicines while you’re trying to stop smoking. This increases your chance of quitting and including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). NRT can be in the form of gums, sprays, patches, tablets, lozenges, and inhalers. NRT is even available without a prescription. Medicines called bupropion and varenicline also very useful. 
  3. Electronic cigarettes: Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are designed to look and feel like normal cigarettes. These contain a heating element that vapourises a solution and looks like smoke. Some may also contain low levels of nicotine. There is currently controversial evidence on their efficacy. 
  4. Counselling and behavioural therapy: They are both very effective too, especially if you are being guided by a cessation expert. He or she can help you with a personalised quit plan, including ways to cope with nicotine withdrawal. Apart from this, online support is also available for those who don’t have the time or money to engage in personal, face-to-face counseling. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I can not remember anything for long time I forget things. How I can improve my memory.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there, short term memory allows you to retain a small amount of information for a short amount of time. Think of it as a temporary workspace where information is consciously registered before being processed into long term memory. A lot of short term data is thrown straight out and is never committed to long term memory. But when we immediately throw out data we want to remember, it becomes a problem. So how can we retain the important stuff so that it sticks when we really want to remember something? in this article, we'll look at the causes of short term memory loss and how you can actively improve it through daily brain training, mnemonic devices, an ultimate memory improvement software and memory supplements. What causes short term memory loss? there are many things that disrupt your conscious processing of new memories. For example, if you can't absorb new information properly, then you have no hope of remembering it later. It's quite normal to forget things committed to recent memory, like what you had for breakfast or where you put your keys. This is a sign of aging, and its the biggest cause of short term memory loss. Your brain stops growing and starts shrinking in your 20s, and so you have fewer brain cells as you get older. While it doesn't usually affect your active memory (minutes), it does affect your recent memory (hours). However, other types of short term memory loss can be a cause of concern. It is associated with a whole host of diseases and disorders, including: alcohol abuse alzheimer's disease atlantic mussel food poisoning cerebral tumor cerebrovascular disease chronic fatigue syndrome chronic stress creutzfeldt jakob disease dementia depression drug abuse encephalitis head injury hiv/aids huntington's disease hypothyroidism lead poisoning marijuana abuse mental illness morgellon's disease normal pressure hydrocephalus sleep deprivation smoking stroke syphilis vitamin b12 deficiency if you feel your short term memory loss is not directly related to aging, you should check out the section on the wider causes of memory loss. However, depending on the underlying cause of your short term memory loss, there are some practical techniques you can use to help restore it. How to improve your short term memory most people compensate for short term memory loss by keeping notes and writing lists of important data. This may provide a quick solution but it doesn't challenge your brain to remember more - if anything, you're using your active memory even less. Automatically storing all your numbers in a cell phone or pda doesn't exactly help either. Instead, it's far better to: perform brain training learn memory techniques take a memory supplement all of these will optimize your brain to perform better naturally - without any artificial aids which will ultimately make it lazy. 1. Brain training it's important to keep your mind sharp as you age. Studies have found that seniors who do crosswords, puzzles, read, write and play card games delayed the onset of dementia. You only need do this kind of mental exercise twice a day in order to help prevent your mental powers from stagnating. The other good news is, brain training is fun! for memory improvement games, I recommend lumosity online brain training. It's free to begin with so you can get a taste of what's available, offering a wide range of simple and scientifically-proven memory games designed for all ages. By practicing daily, you can track your performance and monitor your level of improvement. It's a great resources for anyone serious about sharpening their working memory skills. 2. Memory improvement techniques take a look at some of these memory improvement techniques, designed to help you store more dry data and flex that memory muscle of yours. Exercise a - chunking studies show that most people can comfortably store 7 random digits. In order to make this a lot easier we naturally use a technique called chunking - separating the data into smaller blocks, such as hyphenating phone numbers. How to improve short term memory: chunkingsome people stretch this technique to remember their 16-digit credit card number, broken down into chunks of 4 digits. Can you do this? don't worry if not, most people have simply never tried. After all, we do have this mentality of writing things down instead of making the effort required to remember them. So next time you need to remember a phone number, try the good old method of chunking and committing it to memory first. Repetition and writing it down will help. But the aim of this exercise is to recall the number from memory later on in the day - and not have to refer to a cell phone or scrap of paper. Exercise b - mnemonic devices a mnemonic device is a verbal or visual memory improvement technique that makes it easier to remember a host of seemingly unrelated data. It works by evoking vivid and unusual mental imagery and emotions, thereby giving dry data meaning. Mnemonic devices this mnemonic device will remind you to call your angry gorilla-like boss today. Simple mnemonics can be as basic as a rhyme or acronym to create a reference point for the data you're trying to learn. For instance, my very easy method just sums up nine planets tells us the order of the planets in orbit is mercury, venus, earth, mars, jupiter, saturn, uranus, neptune, pluto. Don't worry pluto, you are still a planet to me! we have all used simple mnemonics like this before - but there are many more clever mnemonic devices to enhance your memory. My favorite are the ones involving colorful visualizations (like a ton of garbage falling down on my head when the clock chimes six) reminding me to take the garbage out. Whether you are battling aging memory loss or super-charging a healthy student memory, mnemonic devices are an excellent habit to form. You will soon be able to quickly memorize long lists of items, tasks, or important facts and recall them from your short term memory with ease. These can also be translated to long term memories if you wish. These powerful techniques can be applied to everyday life and not only help you recall data more easily, it is also another great form of brain training. 3. Memory vitamins sometimes memory loss can be attributed to a nutritional deficiency in the diet. Experts recommend eating more nutrient-rich foods or specific vitamin supplements to restore balance. This provides the brain with all the nutrients it needs to function properly, including the way it forges and retrieves memories. If you are looking to improve your short term memory, you may find it helps to take a memory supplement, in addition to eating a healthy balanced diet. Using the latest memory research, I have compiled a list of the best memory vitamins. These include vitamins b, c, e and omega-3 fatty acids. I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery.

Relieve stress by changing the interpretation

Stress is the reaction of the body or the mind to the interpretation of a known situation. Stress management, therefore, involves either changing the situation, changing the interpretation or taming the body the yogic way in such a way that stress does not affect the body.

Every situation has two sides. Change of interpretation means looking at the other side of the situation. It is something like half glass of water, which can be interpreted as half empty or half full.

Studies have shown that anger, hostility and aggression are the new risk factors for heart disease. Even recall of anger has been reported to precipitate a heart attack.

Many studies have shown that when doctors talk positive in front of unconscious patients in ICU, their outcome is better than those in whose presence if doctors talk negative.

The best way to practice spiritual medicine is to experience silence in the thoughts, speech and action. Simply walking in the nature with silence in the mind and experiencing the sounds of nature can be as effective as 20 minutes of meditation. He said that 20 minutes of meditation provides the same physiological parameters as that of seven hours of deep sleep.
