My age is 27 I will always fear or feel tensed for everything, so I want to avoid fear & tension, so please suggest me regarding this.

Fear and tension is mostly associated when there is a feeling of uncertainty about the consequences of your activities or when you start assuming various negative results for a single event and you also feel that you would not be able to manage it. First stop worrying about the consequences and start focusing on the tasks to be completed. Build the confidence that you would be able to mange any difficult situation. You can see that these feelings of fear and tension automatically disappear.

What Does 3 Cigarettes a Day Do to You?

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
What Does 3 Cigarettes a Day Do to You?

Smoking can cause irreparable damage to your mind and body. Chemicals in the tobacco travel to all parts of the body, leaving no area unaffected. According to available data, smoking causes 30% of all cancer deaths and about 80% deaths from emphysema and bronchitis. In addition to adversely affecting yourself, smoking also has a severe impact on your near and dear ones. According to WHO, about 600,000 people die every year from passive smoking. Out of the deaths that occur due to this, 1/3rd is that of children.

The Indian situation
While 85% of tobacco users worldwide consume it in the form of cigarettes, in India only 13% use it in that form. Additionally, 54% use it in the form of beedis. A study conducted on Indian smokers has revealed that an average of 8.2 cigarettes is smoked by an individual daily.

The study also revealed that the number of cigarettes smoked every year had grown to over 6 trillion. While 1 out of 10 adults dies from tobacco use worldwide, 5% of deaths in women and 20% of deaths in men in India are caused by cigarette and beedi smoking.

What happens when you smoke?
Cigarette smoke is made up of 4000 chemicals that are present either as tiny particles or gases and about 50 are known to lead to cancer, the toxin nicotine being one of them. In addition to nicotine, the chemicals that make up cigarette smoke also include tar and carbon monoxide. Prolonged exposure to these toxins can hamper your body's ability to filter air and clean the lungs. The smoke not only irritates the lungs but also causes excess production of mucus.

It also causes a paralysis of the tiny hair-like structures like cilia that line the airways and are responsible for removing dust and dirt from the organ. Paralysis of these hair-like structures also causes a buildup of mucus and toxic substances, leading to lung congestion. The extra mucus that is produced causes smokers to suffer from the very ubiquitous smoker's cough and chronic bronchitis.

It's also one of the many triggers of asthma, which brings about the narrowing and inflammation of the airways. Long-term exposure to tobacco smoke causes the destruction of the structure of the lung, walls of the airways as well as lung tissue. The result is a condition known as emphysema. Additionally, smoking also leads to cancer of the lung and over 80% lung cancer cases occur due to this habit.

General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. You can ask me privately. tar removing filters or cigarette holders are available to buy. Best way is to stop.

I think I am loosing my memory power and concentration. What is the best way to improve memory power and concentration. What is the best medicine or powder. Please tell me the solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

I need to stop smoking and do cleansing my body is this good to start with Spirulina capsule does it has any side infect.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Spirulina can provoke migraines or light fever; for some it can cause constipation, for others diarrhea (particularly in strong doses). It can cause the appearance of red spots, bring light stomach pains, provoke black or green stools (because it detoxifies the colon). A homoeopathic constitutional treatment rather will not only reduce this craving but will be curative too also eat more vegetables and fruits ,drink plenty of water and exercise daily it is more than enough to detoxify your body

Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Hi to start with practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

I have a daughter who is 8years old. I also have a son who is 6years old. My daughter is very sensitive and therefore most of the times she is in extreme mood either happy or sad. If she is sad, she will cry for every small things, incident. We try very hard to remain calm and composed with her but her problem of this over sensitivity is too much. She also has this feeling that we like son more than her which is definitely the case. She also do not listen to us and when things go wrong she repents by weeping a lot. Kindly advise I have not consulted any psychologist.

She may have a genuine problem about the attention the son is getting as compared to her. She may not realize that she is contributing more and more to this discrepancy – after all she is still a child. Her sensitivity may have everything to do with this issue. But she is attracting a lot of negative attention, because for her, any attention is better than no attention. Even so, the sensitivity may be inherited from her parents, if there is any truth to that. There could be factors like prenatal influences too that may be contributing to this. You will do well to meet with a child psychologist and get continuous guidance to affect some positive change. In the meantime do give her a lot of attention proactively. If you give it reactively she will develop a manipulative method, inadvertently. Take her out to play, spend quality time with her in non-stressful ways like visiting friends and relatives, movies, trips, events and activities, and many more such things. You can affect a move from the negative to the positive, if you do it ingeniously. Do not give attention for any negative behavior but make those same situations into positive ones. If you get caught up in her game, you will only feed into further sensitivity. She is amenable to change because she is so young and you as parents are well aware to want that change.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. We have to value the opinion of parents. They always try to help you and protect you. Never disregard them. You can choose modelling anytime. First try to bd independent. Parents worry about your marriage. Modelling as a profession is considered bad within conservative culture. You can't blame anyone because there are many such incidents. My advise would be to go with your parents wish. Take care.

A boss duty is always to pinpoint the limitation or mistakes which one commits. So it is a part of their job, but taking criticism to such an extent which would hinder your growth or makes you highly distressed is not a good thing. So it is important for you to instead of repeatedly thinking about it, try to de-stress yourself by engaging in pleasurable and relaxable things like going out with family or friends, playing or doing some exercise second, all of us at one time or other become highly tensed when we are being criticized at workplace and leads to low motivation, less job satisfaction and stressed up. But dealing with criticism in a positive manner and instead of worrying over it, try to see what all things are there where you are lacking and if possible there can be chances of changing those things.

I'm suffering from a stage like I won't actually take care if some one is rejecting my words but when it comes to my loved ones I actually get so sensitive that I couldn't bare the situation and I break down into tears. I ask something to be done and it's not done then there is always a dissatisfied and worried sad feeling in my mind and this grew so big that I can't even concentrate on important things and forget something and new problems arise due to this besides consulting a doctor can I know any tips that to be followed by me as well as my family?

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Hi Vikranth There is no serious problem you are suffering from and it can be treated with homoeopathy but for that a whole history needs to be taken from you. It is just your sensitiveness towards certain issues or people which is causing problem to you. So dont worry homoeopathic medicine can bring back that confidence and positiveness back in you and reduce any tensions and stress you have because of these. As stress can cause a number of problems other than these. Other than medicine you can divert your mind by learning some new thing like sports or anything that intrests you. It will provide you with confidence and nurture your talent tpp. Takecare

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I went through your query and can understand what you must be going through. You seem to be predominantly preoccupied with negative thoughts. Negative thoughts and sleep disturbance definitely point towards an underlying depressive disorder. You should consider seeking a psychiatric consultation and get yourself evaluated. With adequate treatment with medications and psychotherapy, you will start feeling better and able to think positive. Positivity will help you decide the future course of action in a correct frame of mind. I do hope that I recover soon. Best wishes.

How to Deal with Stress of Raising a Child with Special Needs?

MBBS
General Physician, Jammu
How to Deal with Stress of Raising a Child with Special Needs?

Parenting in the recent past has become extremely stressful than what it used to be a couple of generations earlier. This stress has increased manifold if the child has special needs. Be it a physical or an emotional disability, the caretaker has a lot of additional responsibilities when raising a child with special needs. Also bringing up such a child is extremely rewarding in the long run, when you see them accomplish things in life, for which your contribution is far greater than in normal children.

Read on to for some guidance on how to manage a child with special need.

  1. Understand the problem your child is facing: The problem may become evident prenatally, at birth, or sometimes it will reveal itself as the child grows up. Whatever the case, once identified, understand the various issues it brings along. This is true especially in case of syndromes like Down's or learning disabilities, which have more implications. Review the medical history thoroughly with the doctor to understand the child better and play your role better.
  2. Supportive community: There are a lot of supportive communities, which will consist of similar people and so a lot of mutual support and help would be available. The emotional components of empathy and sympathy play an equally important role here.
  3. Let’s face it: Caring for such a child is an ongoing process. The sooner this fact is accepted, the easier the journey will be. The children need to be reassured that they are not alone, they are differently perfect, they need to forgive themselves, to not be hard on themselves, and not to lose heart. The parent and the caretakers also need to realize that it is like a never-ending marathon and bracing up for this long haul is very important. There might be times when mistakes happen, tough decisions are taken, and you have to be hard on the child and yourself. However, don’t lose heart and encourage both the child and yourself. It is okay for these slips to happen, just accept them.
  4. Live for today: On a daily basis, forgive small wrongs both for your child and yourself. Trust your instincts, celebrate the little wins, don’t compare your child to anybody else, and protect him from getting bullied. The child needs to be told that you are unique and special and to set your own pace and compete against yourself. Work on your sense of humor and get professional help for both the child’s needs and your additional responsibilities.

While the stress of caring for a child with special needs is quite high, these are very small and simple ways to deal with the stress of raising a child with special needs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.
