Dear doctor,
my daughter 17 years old recently completed her 12th exams quite she is bright student in her class but ...
Please talk to your daughter or show her this response. At her age she is probably going through a spurt in her male hormone, testosterone. Because of this there are three identified behaviors affected by it: she will become sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. It is not because she wants to behave like this; it is the effect of the chemical. What you need to essentially follow is this: become her friend and stop all parenting and moralizing (that time is realistically over), meet with her friends and call them over to the house, give her a lot of time, listen to her even when you don? t agree with her (you cannot tell her anything without knowing what she has to say), follow the path of least resistance, use the help of a close relative she respects, a friend, or teacher to find out about her and to even tell her to do some things you want but all this in strict confidence. During the hormonal imbalance there will be a lot of things going on in her mind and she may temporarily lose awareness. There is nothing to worry about and this state of confusion will last for exactly two years and then it will stabilize and she will feel normal and even better. Now my biggest concern is that 82% is itself phenomenal under these circumstances and must be acknowledged by all and sundry as good achievement. We push our kids for too much and then what is actually good is seen even as failure. I suspect that she is going through this misperception. You just mark my words, she is going to do extremely well if she gets out of this slump in her mood and gets back to working smart and winning ways will come her way. These disappointments are her stepping-stones to success. All great people have experienced setbacks in their path to success, and they have become great achievers because of those setbacks. She is a great kid and has to only work through this presumed failure. Later she can always show how well she did in spite of this!

Dear Lybrate user. There ae many such instances. You should talk to her father without accusing him regarding this. Then a counseling session should solve the problem. I suggest online counseling. Take care.

I think that before you ask your doctor to reduce your medication, make sure you are complying with all the requirements as prescribed. Now if you are serious to want to reduce the medication, you must also work with a counselor and develop some skills and techniques to help you cope with the daily challenges of this condition. Then, as you improve in behavior and coping skills, the doctor will reduce the medication but in such a manner that it will help tease the brain to produce the same naturally. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body?s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart?s fitness; meditation for the brain?s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

I am getting very angry from few days. What should I do to be calm and cool?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
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.

M 27, I smoke once daily, m suffering from nose blockage, and my throat pains sometimes, nose block is a daily issue for me, I m not able to sleep in ac because my nose gets blocked.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stop smoking and avoid secondhand smoke, which can make cold symptoms worse drink lots of fluids such as water and clear soups. Fluids help loosen mucus. Fluids are also important because they help prevent dehydration. Gargle with warm salt water a few times a day to relieve a sore throat. Throat sprays or lozenges may also help relieve the pain. Avoid alcohol. Use saline (salt water) nose drops to help loosen mucus and moisten the tender skin in your nose.

Dear friend, goal (psychological) is misery. Only physical effort is needed to achieve something but this constant mental effort to be someone, you are not is draining you. Try not to be so result-oriented and leave the sleep to come on its own. Do not struggle, it will worsen the problem. You should realize that sleep does not need your effort, it is an automatic function of the body, the more you put effort the more this automatic function is disturbed! have patience. It will fall in its place. You may like to go through the health tip on insomnia.

Schizophrenia is a lifelong disease and the treatment is good for her and must be continuously monitored by the doctor. However, I advise you to take her for therapy as well to provide her with skills and techniques to understand her condition and the measures she can take to have a relatively fulfilling life. This combination will help her tremendously but do not expect great changes. It will be a gradual process but somewhat rewarding. I commend you for having lived with her and helped her this far. The journey is, however, not complete and you will need to give her all he support until the end. If you have other people at home, they could all help too. If you notice any unusual symptoms, immediately inform the doctor. I wish you had started therapy a long time ago. Anyway do seek this help from a professional comp[etent to handle psychotic disorders like schizophrenia.

Role of Nutrition in depression and other mental illnesses

We are able to correlate poor physical health with poor nutrition, but most of us don't relate poor nutrition to poor mental health. In recent times, many researches and studies conducted on healthy and mentally ill people seems to indicate that nutritional deficiency of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids, carbohydrates play a large role in setting off and maintenance of depression, bipolar, ocd, schizophrenia, suicidal tendencies and anxiety disorders.

A typical indian diet based on western diets is found to be very low in many nutrients, especially essential vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. A notable feature of the diets of patients suffering from mental disorders is the severity of deficiency in these nutrients. Studies have indicated that daily supplements of vital nutrients are often effective in reducing patients' symptoms. Supplements containing amino acids have also been found to reduce symptoms, as they are converted to neurotransmitters which in turn alleviate depression and other mental health problems.

Most prescription drugs, including the common antidepressants lead to unpleasant side effects. This usually causes the patients to skip their medications. Such noncompliance can be detrimental to the patients recovery. On the other hand, long term use of medication can lead to drug toxicity, which in turn can be life threatening for the patient. An alternate and effective way is to start a diet rich in anti oxidants, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids which will slowly increase the levels of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrin and gaba, resulting in reduction of symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses. Patients and their families can talk to their psychiatrists, nutritionists and counsellors to guide them through the recommended doses of most nutritional supplements and diets.

1. Omega 3 fatty acids: daily intake of omega 3 in the form of eating fish, olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, sesame seeds, omega3 capsules can produce precursors responsible for producing natural neuro transmitters which will act as anti depressants. Most of the grey matter in the brain is made up of lipids and a diet rich in lipids can enhance the functioning of the brain and mind.

2. Vitamin b complex: poor intake of foods rich in vitamin b has been directly linked to mood swings, depression, anxiety and suicidal tendencies. Diets rich in processed foods, sugars, trans fats are one of the reasons for depression and other mental illness being on the rise. A diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, eggs, poultry can be very helpful in improving the levels of vitamin b 1- 12. Here I would particularly lay stress upon vit b 12 and 6 for helping in cognitive functions of focus, concentration, memory, retention and reproduction. This is of particular use to people who engage in high mental activity like students, office workers, teachers, scientists etc.

3. Minerals: the role of minerals cannot be less emphasized in the realm of mental health. Calcium, iron, magnisium, iodine, zinc, lithium all play important roles in the body in their ionic form and protect us from anaemia, thyroid, fatigue, manic and suicidal episodes. Consuming a diet rich in minerals or having their supplements can prove to be very beneficial in recovery or insurance against mental illness.

4. Proteins: proteins are the building blocks of our life and particularly needed for sound mental and brain functioning. All the neurotransmitters in the brain are made up of amino acids which are found in proteins. Having a diet rich in all 20 amino acids may not require a person to take chemical based anti depressants. Dopamine and serotonin can be easily produced naturally in the body and by eating beans, peas, legumes, eggs, milk, honey, fish and poultry.

5. Carbohydrates: it has been observed that diets rich in whole grains and low gi index foods encourage a regulated release of energy in the body which in turn secretes insulin. The correct flow of insulin determines the amount of tryptophan release in the brain. Thus it's advised to avoid high sugary and processed foods which release high amounts of insulin which upsets the brain chemistry and mood regulation leading to poor mental and emotional health.

It is suggested by various studies and researches to include dietary intervention as an important tool for recovery from mental illnesses along with medications, counseling, social support and physical activity.

Hello, How long can a person of an age 28 can live if he is consuming 200 ml of alcohol daily, neglecting to drink once in a week?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is no way anyone can calculate your longevity on the basis of your alcohol consumption alone. There are so many other factors to be considered and so you are fooling yourself by statistics. You must also factor in that at this rate of consumption you will gradually develop tolerance and dependence on alcohol so that you will'need' larger quantities to attain the same pleasure. You are well advised to quit from the regular use forthwith.

Dear lybrate-user, Sorry to hear about your brothe'sr and parent's sufferings. This what happens to many families that have a person living with a mood disorder. Your brother is young and he has the whole future in his hand. Let not the mood disorder spoil it. Please know that mood disorders are treatable. The treatment may be long term mood stabilizers, antidepressants, tranquilizers, psychotherapy or a combination of all these at different times. Please have hope and continue to treat him as advised by your psychiatrist. You will be doing good not only for your brother but for the whole family including yourself. Positive results, take time because many tablets don't reach brain immediately. It takes 2-3 weeks. Doctors usually give a low dose in the beginning and then only increase the dose. The same doctor will help you out with the dose and different type of tablets at different time. Even if your brother refuses to go to doctor, you or your parents can go to him and discuss your brother's mood swings.

Hi. I have a feeling of stress inside me neck and sometimes it also comes over my nose. I was a smoker for around 9 months but I quit 4 months ago. I have been getting this lump in throat problem for around 1 and half year. Had an endoscopy done but nothing came out. The ENT guy said I just have acid reflux and gave me medicines. The medicines helped me for few days but as soon as the course completed it came back. Can you suggest me a permanent solution for this problem?

Leaving any addiction very much depends upon the will power of the person. You need to promise yourself that you will quit. Also gradually decrease the no of cigrattes you are smoking, sudden leaving would result in withdrawal symptoms and you will get more craving for the pipe. Also take reckwedge no. 77, german homoeopathic medicine. Positive thinking and strong control along will medicine should be able to help you to quit smoking. To build the muscle mass, take more of protein rich diet and join a gym for muscle workout. It would definately add bulk to your body.
