Family issues are not the problem, you can not take it any more is the problem. The family is all yours, their problems and issues are also yours. Love them don't feel frustrated because of them. Be positive that every thing will be sort out. It gives you positivity in your mind.

There is a four step process to determining if you may suffer from alcohol intolerance. Remember that only a doctor can officially diagnose you and your symptoms, but the following can help you determine if you may be suffering from alcohol intolerance. Describe symptoms keep a close eye on what symptoms you suffer around the time you have consumed alcohol. Also, be sure to know your genetic history of family members with allergies. Conduct a physical examination being carefully examined by a doctor can determine exactly what the cause may be, while dismissing other possible options. Take a skin test this is a method of testing for allergic reactions to various products, such as grains. If your skin becomes raised or starts having rashes after being pricked with a small of the product you may be allergic to you, then you will have discovered precisely what elements in an alcoholic drink you are allergic to, so you can know what to avoid. Take a blood test another test that can determine not only allergies, but also the state of your immune system, is a blood test. This type of test will look for immunoglobulin antibodies, those that fight off allergies, but it is not always an accurate test.

Hi lybrate-user, wet dreams have serious health implications in some people. They are sometimes a symptom of weakness and infection of the urogenital system. Acute cases of night emissions lead automatic emissions at any time. Frequent and acute cases of nightfall require immediate medical attention. Men should learn how to stop nightfall to avoid its effects. Some of the effects of excessive nightfall include physical and sexual weakness, premature ejaculation, and a low sperm count. Do the following: 1. Use bottle gourd juice bottle gourd juice cools your system and helps you stop nightfall. There're two ways that bottle gourd juice can help with your condition. One is that you can prepare and take half a glass of the juice just before going to bed. Alternatively, you can mix bottle gourd juice with sesame oil and then use the mixture to massage your scalp. 2. Try gooseberry another useful tip on how to stop nightfall is taking gooseberry juice before going to bed on a daily basis. The benefits of gooseberry include cooling the internal body heat and boosting your immunity. You can take a glass of gooseberry juice or mix its powder with water. 3. Include garlic and onion in your diet garlic has many health benefits when taken with food. However, if needed to control nightfall, then you should consume it raw. Chop 3-4 buds of garlic into small pieces, mix with water, and take before going to bed. Onions can also help you control nightfall when consumed in your daily diet or in their raw form in salads and sandwiches. 4. Take milk with other ingredients you canstop nightfall by mixing milk with some ingredients and taking the mixture before going to bed. Add a mixture of ginger and presoaked almonds to a hot glass of milk or take several bananas and a glass of hot milk before bedtime. Alternatively, take 2-3 cups of curds before going to bed to cool your body system. 5. Try juice and honey extract juices from celery and fenugreek leaves. Mix the extracted juices with honey and take this mixture every night for a month. You extract the juices by crushing the leaves and mix it with honey using the ratio of 2: 1. Juice from celery leaves cures both nightfall and premature ejaculation when mixed with honey. 6. Take sage tea taking at least two cups of sage tea every day reduces your chances of experiencing nightfall. Take sage tea first thing in the morning and just before you go to bed. Sage tea has other health benefits as well. 7. Eat pomegranate pomegranate is one of the popular remedies for nightfall. The fruit improves blood circulation and acts as an antioxidant. Its role in promoting good blood circulating helps you get hard erections. Eating pomegranate will help you stop nightfall within one or two months. 8. Take yogurt daily if you experience frequent wet dreams, take a big bowl of yogurt at least three times in a day. Yogurt has health benefits and reduces your chances of wet dreams. Taking yogurt consistently will stop wet dreams in a few days. 9. Bathe with essential oils another tip on how to stop nightfall is taking a regular bath with a few drops of essential oils every day before sleeping. Some of the essential oils you can add to your bath include lavender, jasmine, and rose. Such regular baths before going to bed prevent nightfall, relax your mind, and enable you to sleep well. 10. Read before sleep reading a book before sleeping is effective in stopping wet dreams. Do not read books with sexual images or plots, as they will arouse you. Instead, go for books that write about friends, god, colleague life, or love. You will sleep peacefully without night emissions when you read a good book before bedtime. 11. Change your lifestyle the easiest way to stop nightfall is to change your lifestyle including your diet and habits. Identify the aspects of your lifestyle that lead to wet dreams and change or eliminate them. One of the lifestyle changes that can help you stop nightfall is stopping nasty fantasies from your thoughts. Avoid watching porn movies and nude photos. Other lifestyles that will help you stop nightfall include stopping or reducing the frequency of masturbation. All the best.

the only thing that makes a relationship last is respect. one of the partners has to take initiative and start tolerating and respecting the differences. you start this. it will take few days but other one will realise and reciprocate. there is no need to admit you are at fault just keep quiet and don't point out your partner's mistakes.

You are sounding like you are into a depression and it is progressively getting worse. You need professional help right away. I suggest that you go meet a counselor immediately and if that person advises, you may have to meet with a doctor too. Even if you are put on medication do not discontinue the counseling for a long time. Since the problem manifests so early there may be some childhood influences that are causing this depression. In that case I suggest you take your parents too, to the counselor. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because at your age 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Focus on losing weight and your negative thoughts will change to positive. Eat minimum fats and carbs, more proteins, simple foods like toned milk and curds. Exercise is good for body and mind. Learn to focus on one thing at a time when negative feelings prop up. Do some activities which require focusing like reading good books, some job to do on computers, some social work like teaching little kids for an hour a day or helping your over worked mother in kitchen. Do try for a month and write back to get more guidance from any of us here.

Anything that is not responsible, respectful or functional is really unhealthy for you. You need to be careful because porn may provide great sexual entertainment but it also stokes the desire, which will then lead to desire-fulfillment and that will lead to impulses. It actually objectifies women and sex to levels that make you lose respect for them. Besides, the whole thing is dramatized to such crazy levels of performance (that is why it sells too) that you are made to feel grossly inadequate. It is really far from the reality, and these are exceptional actors, with some exceptional endowments and actions that you may even look at your own spouse (later when you get married, that is) with disdain or inadequacies that are most unfair. After you have been stimulated you are left hungry in your groin to want to fulfill your desires, and if not met soon, leaves you with that raging libido, and it can goad you to do something inappropriate. In essence, it spoils a very beautiful thing and reduces it to mere physical impulses. After some time you get disgusted when you have had too much of it; whereas natural sex will never cause that effect at all. If you have so much of sexual energy you can channelize it into activities, sports, games, and hobbies. You need to distract yourself when the drive is very strong in you, which may be so if your levels of testosterone are very high too. You need to socialize with members of the opposite sex and enjoy their company to experience the different aspects of a woman and to also feel the different aspects of sex and not get frozen in the carnal part of it alone. Sex has five different dimensions to it: there is the physical aspect, the emotional aspect, the intellectual aspect, the social aspect and finally, there is the spiritual aspect. The latter may surprise you but this is where respect and regard for women and their bodies will come up to help treat them with value. If you cultivate these dimensions of sex I am sure you will perceive women differently and with a lot of respect. Eventually, when you are into a serious relationship with a woman, you will truly enjoy the whole concept of romance and being and falling in love with the real thing: that my friend will be a different ball-game. Do not play with a poor replica of sex, and shy away from the real person and thing, which are so wholesome.

Smoking is harmful whether it is one or two a day, period. You can visit an ent specialist and investigate your throat. It does not matter if there is any connection or not with the smoking. Some people are more susceptible to the effects of cigarette smoke more than others. It is better to be safe rather than sorry.

Dear lybrate user, I appreciate your efforts to get rid of marijuana. I guess you are able to do it for last 1 month because of your strong will power. Please continue that. At the same time, understand that your body has got used to this substance. Even if you have stopped taking it now, there are some residues in your body, which you need to flush out. This is know as" detoxification" of your body. You will need to take some medicines to detoxify your body. For last 7 years your body has got used to marijuana. So when you suddenly, stop taking it, the body is going to react. You might experience trembling, lack of sleep and intense craving etc. It will be difficult for you to have mind control on these bodily changes or demands. These are known as" withdrawal symptoms" you need to take some medicines to keep your withdrawal symptoms in control. Hence, please consult a doctor at the earliest. The doctor will prescribe these medicines. Once your detoxification is over and you are on medicines to take care of your withdrawal symptoms, then you please start your counselling sessions. There has to be a reason why you started experimenting with marijuana. It appears that your present life is in a mess. To provide you with emotional support and to help you with improving your relationships and move ahead in life, counsellor will be of great help. Please consult a counsellor after consulting a doctor. Take care.

How to Tell If You Need Help Quitting Drinking

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
How to Tell If You Need Help Quitting Drinking

The first step to getting help for a drinking problem is actually recognising that you have one. There are some signs that you might have a problem with alcohol, but it's also worthwhile asking yourself a few questions about your reasons for drinking. Facing the facts can be pretty tough, but it's courageous to step up and decide you need help to control your alcohol intake.

This can help if:

 

  •     You're regularly binge drinking
  •     You're having blackouts
  •     You drink when you're alone
  •     Other people are worried about your drinking habits 
  •     You have an increased tolerance to alcohol and drugs

Signs of alcohol dependence

It's not always easy to tell when you have a drinking problem, particularly as binge drinking is a pretty common activity in Australia. You might not always notice when a couple of drinks has turned into too many.

The fact that you're thinking about whether you have a problem is a good start and there are some signs of alcohol dependence that you can look out for:

 

  •     Worrying about when you'll be able to have your next drink
  •     Suffering from withdrawal symptoms like sweating, nausea or insomnia as a result of not drinking alcohol
  •     Needing to drink more and more alcohol to get drunk
  •     Drinking alcohol, or desiring to drink alcohol, when you wake up in the morning
  •     Consuming alcohol regularly on your own, or trying to hide your alcohol consumption from those around you
  •     Relationships with friends or family are being affected by your drinking. Ask yourself some questions

A couple of questions that people who work in the field of alcohol addiction often ask people include...

 

  •     Do you drink because you have problems or to relax?
  •     Do you drink when you get mad at other people, including your friends or parents?
  •     Do you prefer to drink alone, rather than with other people?
  •     Is your work or education suffering as a result of your drinking?
  •     Have you ever tried to stop drinking or to drink less and found that you can't?
  •     Do you drink in the morning, before school or work?
  •     Do you gulp your drinks?
  •     Do you ever have loss of memory due to your drinking?
  •     Do you lie about how much or how often you drink?
  •     Do you ever get into trouble when you're drinking?
  •     Do you get drunk when you drink, even when you don't mean to?
  •     Do other people comment on your drinking and think it's a problem?

If you answer yes to any one of these questions, it's possible that you have a problem with alcohol.

Facing the facts

Facing up to the fact that you might have a problem takes courage. Deciding to take control and get some help is a really brave move, and if you do feel you have a problem, getting help can be the best thing ever.

Sir, When I start studying I notice, my mind gets deviate. I fail to concentrate on the topic and since our exams are coming an external pressure make over the head causing a little bit headache.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
If you feel excessive sleep or tiredness/ head spinning or vertigo like feeling you have to make sure you have no anaemia or hypothyroidism by doing a blood CBC & TSH and inform me directly 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

4 Things You Should Avoid While Suffering From Depression!

4 Things You Should Avoid While Suffering From Depression!

Depression is a psychological condition that can drain your hope, energy and drive. The things that you once rejoiced might not be pleasurable anymore. Meanwhile, overcoming depression isn't quick or easy and it is recommended that you opt for counselling or professional support to help you through. At the same time, you need to avoid these practices, which tend to increase the intensity of depressive symptoms.

These are the things you should avoid while suffering from depression.

1. Avoid Staying Alone: When you are depressed, you might not feel pleasure in things you used to enjoy earlier. This might result in social isolation, making you lonelier and more depressed than ever. But living in social situations, meeting people will actually help you. It can take off your mind from the feelings of depression and while meeting people might not seem as enjoyable as it did before, it can certainly help in overcoming the feelings of loneliness.

2. Avoid NOT Seeking Help: Most of the people are unable to differentiate between sadness and depression. But if you are someone who has been feeling intensely sad for no reason, then you are probably depressed. So, don't avoid seeking help. Approach a therapist, even online if you want more confidentiality and privacy. A counsellor can actually help in overcoming the feeling of depression.

3. Avoid White Foods: Processed foods or white foods are simple carbohydrates that can actually lead to insulin dumping and trigger the process of depression. The surge of insulin will initially make you feel happier, but once that's surge goes down, you will begin to feel depressed again. This will even trigger hunger and particular cravings, which in turn affect depression symptoms negatively.

4. Products with Aspartame: Aspartame can lower the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that's associated with mood. Therefore, eating aspartame can increase the intensity of your depression symptoms, may result in insomnia as well.

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. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers.
