Dear Lybrate User, *Eating goitrogenic foods such as rapeseed, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, maize, lima beans, soya and pearl millet should be limited. These foods contain natural goitrogens, which are chemicals that cause the enlargement of the thyroid gland by interfering with thyroid hormone synthesis. Cooking is known to make the goitrogens elements less effective, but it would be wise not eat these foods raw. *Smoking depresses TH levels and produces chronic underlying hypothyroidism. Research shows that nicotine increases the synthesis of T3 from T4 in the brain, while alcohol and opiates block the breakdown of T3 in the brain. *Foods that contain iodine, such as kelp, beetroot, radish, parsley, potatoes, fish, oatmeal and bananas, should be kept in the diet.

How To Overcome Infidelity

MD-Pharmacology, MBBS
Sexologist, Delhi
How To Overcome Infidelity

Over the years, infidelity has surfaced as the single most common reason that has the ability to shatter and dismantle a perfectly happy relationship. Infidelity can occur in any and every form of relationship and in each of them it is deemed as unacceptable and uncalled for. Lack of affection has been generally identified as the primary cause why people stray.

However, there are other reasons too that cause infidelity. Some of them are:

  1. Bad judgment: The person who is held responsible for going astray may actually be the victim of bad judgement and an impulsive decision. There may not be anything wrong with the marriage, but momentary attraction and a rash decision are possible reasons that lead a person astray.
  2. Search for an emotional connect: The lack of emotional connect with the partner can be a possible reason for infidelity. An unquenchable thirst for attention and the need to be flattered as well as finding an emotional connect with a new person causes infidelity. Though the most common and devastating outcome of infidelity is the end of a relationship, there are ways, which helps one to overcome infidelity. Some of them are as follows:
  3. Ending the affair immediately: The first and foremost step that you must take in overcoming infidelity is to end the affair immediately. If your relationship is important to you, then it would require your complete investment both physically and emotionally. You must snap all contacts with the other person and concentrate on rebuilding your relationship with renewed faith and trust.
  4. Open discussion: If you want your relationship to work then you must have a completely free and open discussion with your partner. Coming clean about your past affair is imperative if you want to begin anew. Your partner deserves a complete, honest discussion and you must do it delicately and with a lot of care.
  5. Willingness to compromise: Beginning a relationship after confessing about the past relationships requires a lot of hard work and compromises. It will take a long time for the relationship to be what it was before the infidelity and you should take complete responsibility for it as well have a willingness to compromise on certain issues.
  6. Marriage therapy: Apart from the attempt to amend yourself, you can also use the help of a marriage therapist. A marriage counselor or a therapist, through prolonged discussions and sound counselling can avert the possible ending of the relationship.

I am very depressed and want to kill myself. I completely lost my confidence and interest in life. I am facing some familyproblemsfrom last 2 months and one month ago I had given birth to a baby boy but still I am loosing myself. I had become very quite and fearful. I feel scared to share my thoughts and feelings to anyone as no one could try to understand me. I love my husband very much and I want to live with him, only he could give me hope to live now but I can't live with his family now, I feel very frightened with them but I can't share this with my husband. What should I do now. I couldn't sleep, no interest in eating oranything else. I feel senseless. I had totalychanged. I only need to live with my husband or I wouldn't save myself. A very strong urge comes inside me to kill myself. What should I do now. Could anybody help me or I would die.

Hello lybrate-user, killing oneself is not the solution to the problems of life. When a woman is pregnant and for about 6-9 months after delivery she has certain hormones in her body which make her emotionally weaker. These hormones are also necesarry for the development of the baby. I can assure you you will not feel as fearful in 3 month's time. Try to distract yourself whenever you get bad thoughts. Don't give up. Your condition will improve and your baby will bring you a lot of happiness. Be hopeful. Don't worry. This tough phase will pass.

Dear, 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. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

I have smoking habit and now I am planning to quit smoking suddenly on one day. Quitting smoking suddenly on a day is good choice or quitting it slowly by reducing the number of cigarettes preferable? One of my friend said that one should not quit smoking suddenly on one day we need to slow down smoking day by day. Is that true?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Stop it immediately for success. Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, 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.

You have to make a timetable that is not very harsh and not very lax. You have to assign yourself tasks in a graded manner. Dont assign too many things to yourself all of a sudden. if you fail once or twice, dont catastrophise it. it happens to everybody. Try again. Remember a partial failure is also a partial success. See things in positive light. Give credit to yourself. Thinking is the first step to taking action. You have already got the step 1 right. Step 2 shall soon follow. Don't worry. It is only a matter of time. take care!

Hello your symptoms match those of panic disorder. Nexito takes atleast 1-2 weeks to show effect. You need to wait till it starts working. In the meanwhile, you can take an anti anxiety drug like clonazepam during a panic attack. Also, psychotherapy done along with medicines shows better results.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Let me explain what your son is going through. He has entered adolescence by nearly 4 years now. During this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which he has no control: he will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and he will have acne and pimple problems. Then if he has unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel his uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that he himself may not be aware of all this. He is establishing himself among his peers, and he will try to be fashionable in every way possible. What is outrageous to you is very much in, with youngsters today. I am not asking you to become like them but you must understand that this is a different generation and era. He will be seeking a lot of attention from his friends and some of them think that they have to be horrendously different for social acceptance. They will smoke, drink, do drugs, have relationships with girls just to impress their peers. Now what to do? You parents need to become his best friend i.E. You must always ally with him and find the path of least resistance, without displaying any weakness. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment he hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with him, openly. Indulge in him and make home a beautiful place for him to want to be in. Now remember he needs money for all his adventures, which is a commodity he does not have and is not earning it either. That is your bargaining chip or weapon. Use it to negotiate compliance on a barter basis. Never give him anything without there being some negotiations ? barter with him; you give him something in return for some compliance from him. There has to be some ground rules in living in your house. If he cannot adhere to them, let him choose to live elsewhere, on his own earnings. Let it appear like it is his choice. You have to be strong and firm in some matters. Don?t make decisions for him: offer alternatives that help him make responsible choices. I recommend that you take him for career counseling and determine his aptitude for academic pursuits. Offer him the option then, that he does his course or goes to work. If you feed him with all the comforts, he will never be under pressure to do anything. In fact you may be encouraging him in his negative behaviors by facilitating them. If you can befriend his close companions, especially his peers, you can reach him through them to influence him positively but it has to be done with strict confidence. You may also have some respected elder relative whom he regards highly. Use his/her assistance to get some obedience out of him. Whatever you do, never let him feel rejected by you. There is no harm to tell him that you are afraid as to what is going to happen to him, and afraid that you cannot handle him. This is a fact and so there is no shame in being that open to him.

I face difficulty in concentration while studying. I am unable to concentrate for even 10 minutes. Things of past and future start coming to my mind and I get distracted. I am very worried about myself. I can't give myself quality time in study. Please help me and take me out from this weird and annoying problem. Thank You.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is some stress that is causing this distraction for which I recommend you meet with a counselor and sort that out. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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, 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. 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 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 is 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 sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week
