Hi doc, I'm 21 years old, my weight is 87 kgs. I would like to loose my weight. So many people like my neighbours, friends suggested that you have to go gym and you have to mainly concentrate on your workouts completely. Is that productive? Could you please give me some weight loss tips!

exercise is very good for your fitness and increasing your energy level. But I would be very honest with you that that will not help you loose this kind of weight just by exercising. Diet and chaning life style will go a long and and help you lead a healthy and fit life. I would suggest you to get your metabolic test done to figure out the reason behind weight gain and accordingly make a wholistic plan to come back to your normal weight and then learn to maintain it. If you can't find someone in your city, let me know and I would be able to help you give you reference to a good doctor. hope this helps, feel free to contact me for any further questions or concerns, wishing you very best,

Last month I did my abortion coz of my health issues n from then I'm very depressed n feel lonely.

Last month I did my abortion coz of my health issues n from then I'm very depressed n feel lonely.
I am sorry for your loss. An abortion is like a loss of a loved one. It generates a grief reaction in the mother which can be profound in many. But it is also important to understand that it is natural in the first month or so. It usually goes away in a couple of months. If it persists beyond this period we might have to look for abnormal conditions such as depression. In any case from a psychological standpoint you have to understand some things. The loss is not reversible. So do not try to hold on to it. Accept the loss. Share your thoughts and feelings with near and dear ones, do not keep it to yourself. Spend quality time with family and friends. Reengage and spend more time in hobbies. Sleep and eat well; drink lot of water. Listen to calming music, do yoga and pranayam. You should get well soon. If this state continues for a few more weeks, please consult a psychiatrist.

We all know pain is a state of mind, you have to divert your mind at that time. Either go out or call a friend or watch something of your interest. Also you need to understand the sideegfects of continous use of pain killers. They can damage your kidneys for life time. Choice is yours.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. I am afraid you can not do anything in this regard except talk to him, find out why he is irritated, love him and care him as he is a child. In face he has become a child mentally. This happens to all elderly people. Treat him in that perspective.

Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all 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.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Yoga alone can never cure depression. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I feel very low. I don't want to wake up. Thoughts always disturb my mind. I tried but am hopeless now. I am depressed.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Body and mind work together. When you are having increased heartbeats and feeling anxious you need to understand what is going on in your mind. You will have to analyse your thoughts and the feelings behind these thoughts. May be you are underconfident about your abilities or may be you are scared of somehting. Presently you are not realising what is happening to you. This needs to be explored. Talk to a counsellor, who will help you to understand your mind games and will help you to get rid of this anxiety.

Whenever we are having some discussion, at some points, she usually gets angry, and start talking loudly, and sometimes shouts. Is there any problem with her? She sometimes try to hit herself in these situations, or damages something. She herself says that this is not right! What should we do? Whom to consult? Is there any deficiency?

Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Frequent anger outbursts and inability to control them can be a part of underlying personality problems, impulse control disorders or mood disorders. This can also occur due to hormonal imbalances and vitamin deficiency. If these problems have became frequent then you should not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist for treatment and counselling.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I can understand what you must be going through with your symptoms. Constantly worrying over minor matters, and associated anxiety is suggestive of generalised anxiety disorder. However, a detailed psychiatric evaluation would be required for a definitive diagnosis. With proper treatment that will constitute of medications and psychotherapy, you will start feeling better an your general medical health will also improve. In addition, start exercising daily. Start writing a diary to let out your feelings and emotions daily. Please do consult a psychiatrist and initiate treatment. I do hope that you start recovering soon. Best wishes.

I am twenty y five years old and I have smoking habit. Since one year I am suffering from severe cough and skin allergy. I am not able to take this any more. Please help me. I I am scared.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Meet with an ENT specialist and investigate the cough. The skin allergy may or may not have anything to do with the smoking. Quitting smoking is urgent: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
