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.

Hi I am 27 years old. I spend most of my day's time with my office friend . She is also female . I feel I am lesbian. Because I get attracted to her. But I feel it is just because I am emotionally and mentally attached to her. So all I am feeling this. I just want to know how do I confirm if I am a lesbian or not ?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
If you are attracted only emotionally you may not be lesbian, but very much dependent on her. If you are attracted physically wanting to have body intimacy, but also have similar thoughts with men, then you are bi-sexual. But if you have those exclusively towards women (body intimacy). Then you are a Lesbian. Whatever it is, nothing wrong, enjoy your sexuality

Ayurvedic View on Alcohol and Nicotine De-addiction

MSc Applied Biology, Diploma in Naturopathy

Ayurvedic View on Alcohol and Nicotine De-addiction

What happens when you are addicted to a chemical substance? You lose control of your life. It doesn’t matter what you are addicted to alcohol, nicotine or drugs the effects are the same. It is usually not easy to get rid of an alcohol and/or nicotine addiction. Most people find it difficult to give up these substances even after years in de-addiction therapy. Hence, it’s prudent to let Ayurveda, the ancient science of healing handhold us in getting rid of addictions. 

Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT. Perhaps this list of ingredients that are found in cigarettes is enough to make you want to quit smoking for good! - Lowell Kleinman, M.D., and Deborah Messina-Kleinman, M.P.H​

Addiction - The Ayurvedic View
Ayurveda considers alcohol and nicotine consumed in large quantities as ‘Visha’ or toxic. According to Ayurveda, alcohol has the following properties-

  1. Light or Laghu
  2. Hot or Ushna
  3. Sharp or Tikshna
  4. Drying or Visada
  5. Rough or Ruksha
  6. Expensive or Vikaasa
  7. Swift or Aasuga
  8. Sour or Amla
  9. Subtle or Sookshma

These properties are all opposite to the qualities that ojas possesses. Ojas has all life-giving properties and alcohol and nicotine have life-negating qualities.

Why do humans get addicted to alcohol and nicotine?
Human brain produces Dopamine normally and what alcohol does is to activate the nervous system to promote dopamine formation. The brain thus remembers the taste of alcohol and nicotine by creating special cells called receptor cells. As a person increases the quantity of alcohol, these cells also increase in numbers. When the person wants to give up his addictions these receptor cells agitate and create withdrawal symptoms with unpleasant and even dangerous symptoms.

De-addiction - Ayurveda Way
De-addiction treatments in Ayurveda comprise the following:

  1. Purification therapies or Panchkarma: These are used for getting rid of all toxins present in the patient’s body. These must always be done under the supervision of an ayurvedacharya as they are quite potent. After Panchakarma, the patient is given vomiting therapy or Vamana, followed by purgative therapy or Virechana, Basti or enema therapy and administration of Nasya or nasal drops therapy. All these help in detoxifying the body and mind and prepare the patient for further de-addiction ayurvedic treatments like Rasayana therapies which nourish and strengthen the body after Panchkarma. For treatment of addictions, Rasayana treatments include changes in diet and use of oral herbal medicines both.
  2. Herbal medicines used in de-addiction: A range of herbal medicines and their combinations are used in the treatment of addictive problems in Ayurveda and these are to be consumed orally. Ayurveda prescribes Chamomile and Ashwagandha in combination to heal the lungs. These help in cleansing lungs of smoke- related problems. Doctors also prescribe congestion relieving herbs like ginger and pepper mixed with honey or lemon. 

In addition, herbs to improve memory, concentration and to fight depression are also given. These are:

  1. Shankhpushpi
  2. Kanphool or dandelion
  3. Brahmi
  4. Ashwagandha

In addition, herbs to treat sleep disturbances like Jatamansi, Sarpgandha, Brahmi and Jaiphal are also prescribed. Since most addicts have impaired liver function, herbs that improve liver function like Aloe Vera, Punarnava, Long pepper, Kutki, Tulsi are given to revive the liver. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Dear lybrate user. You have to first understand that you are you. You have your own set of skills and capabilities, good points and bad points, good attitude and negative attitude. You are made by your own thinking and actions, never by others. Therefore, ignore what others say and be self respecting. Take care.

Hi, lack of energy could be owing to a host of reasons--nutrient deficiencies, sporadic sleep cycles, under-eating and subsequently overeating, dehydration, skipping breakfast to name only a few reasons. To regain energy, ensure you drink ample water through the day and that your meals are wholesome and complete and that your daily diet includes fruits and fresh vegetables. Hope this helps.

I smoke daily 4 cigarettes. But when I quit those for two to three days my complexion looks good. What's that. Im 18 years of age.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Cigarette smoke does effect the skin and makes it form wrinkles. I do not know that it can cause good complexion so fast but does damage the skin, especially on the face. Any way there is no mystery about the harmful effects of tobacco consumption and so without worrying only about your skin my advice is for you to quit it soon before it becomes too much and therefore too difficult. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time just like you experienced with the skin changes.

Hello, I started to smoke three months back and now daily it has been like an habit. I initially started just taking one puff but right now I'm smoking daily, I wanna quit can some one help me?

This is how nearly everyone gets into the habit of smoking or any other habit. Now that you are in it, it is good you want to get out of it.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 in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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.

My relative is suffering from wiered issue. She is washing her hand every time. She don't want to touch wall also. She is feeling that this is dirty. Is there any possiblity to recover from this issue?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is called ocd or obsessive-compulsive disorder. The obsession is a repeated thought pattern that is not productive and it leads to a repeated action behavior that is compulsive and also non-productive. The person will usually believe that if the behavior is repeated a certain number of times, the problem will disappear. In some people it can be quite crippling. So if it has not reached serious proportions take her to meet with a counselor to resolve the same. The ocd is founded on fear, and the compulsive behavior is magically believed to resolve the same. The counselor will help her identify the fear and help her deal with it in healthy and normal ways. She must be cooperative and very communicative for any success. The therapy may be for long-term and so she has to be patient and never drop out thinking that she is done with it. Let the counselor decide that with her. You must also involve her parents in all this. If the counselor thinks it is serious enough that medication is required, that person will send her to a psychiatrist. Whatever happens do not discontinue the therapy until she feels completely out of this problem. Her particular problem is a fear of infection: the fetish is about cleanliness and germs, which is in fact all over the place and cannot be completely eradicated except in very sterile surroundings. Our immune system can quite easily handle it but if she is stressed by the fear, she can in fact become infected due to lowered immunity, and will not know it or accept it anyway.

Dear sir/madam, I am 26y/male During the morning time after waking up & during the relaxed conditions & during tension I feel too much stammering/stuttering in speech. At same time when I am wid my very closed ones & normal active time I don't get any stammering. Please suggest me a cure for this problem.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

Now a days I do regular practice what ever touched during speech therapy and do yoga from a week but still stammer . And stammer more when I talk to father . Whether he is soft towards me . Sometimes I also fear from talk on phone and moving in market , I fear from people at market for talk . And I think I stammer. Sometimes I went in mental depression.

Hi, you definitely need to see a psychologist for help. Tell your parents frankly that you have been advised to consult a psychologist for curing the stammer. Am sure, they too will want it cured. Do not worry, with right treatment it can be cured fully. They teach ujjai pranayaam- a breathing exercise for stammer. No harm in doing, but must do alongwith watching on tv for correct procedure. In general, the program if watched and followed will do you tremendous good. God bless you!
