How to get rid of depression caused by various reasons while doing research program, i.e., PhD. One of the reasons is that the research supervisor keeps stretching my duration unreasonably although I have done my part to meet the minimum requirement of receiving research degree (PhD.)? He knows that I am financially drained out:(

How do you think about your research and supervisor is need to be evaluated. Push yourself to do more rational and practical thinking. Everyone has his own way to work. Try to know more about the way your supervisor works what exactly he wants. Provide practical evidences to your thoughts related to your supervisor. You can also improve the way of your communication with him. It is the best way to connect with someone. You are going to learn a lot through this experience. Think positive sides of this experience rather than thinking of difficulties.

Psychiatry - I am 34 years old male. I have been on sulpitac and stilnoct for around 4-5 years for delusions and paranoia. Recently doctor started modalert in morning because of concentration, restlessness and focus problems at work. Though modalert benefited a lot at work but it led to increase in paranoia symptoms. The sulpitac dosage was increased but still I am facing problems. I think it needs to be increased more. I think I was much better without modalert. I do not want to take it. Now I am finding it very difficult to get off modalert. What is the way to get off it. Is there some alternative. Are there some supplements, vitamins etc that may help with getting off modalert and that helps in concentration and restlessness.

If your life is disturbed by your delusions and paranoia, you need sulpitac - may be more. If you want concentration at work, you need modalert. Sticking a balance needs help from a psychiatrist. Please don't adjust yourselves. Inform doctor your problem during a particular time and he/she will adjust the combination of drugs. You can get rid of modalert by gradually shifting to another antidepressant. Supplements are only supplements - they need to be added to antidepressant tablets. They will also help.

I am smoking a lot how can I get the nicotine out or what should I use to remove the nicotine form my body.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just stop smoking and nicotine will gradually leave your system. There are some people who are on a reactive mode and will quit only after they have got a disease or reach the worst condition in their abuse. In addiction parlance this is called ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, that is, you will cease the abuse only when you have suffered the worst affect of the substance. Sometimes that stage may be a terminal stage and there is no turning back: it has become too late. You must live by the adage that ‘Prevention is better than cure’. To quit do the following: When quitting, you must take one day at a time. 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 in 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 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.

I am 34 years married man with a daughter 5 months old. I am a medical sales professional managing a team of 6 members. While trying out to clean the corruption in the team. I have to take some harsh decision and change few team members in the team. As a result the performance get a blow even after giving 100% effort. Over last one and half years, I am wrecked both in my professional field and personal life with my parents. I have become very stressed short tempered. I fails to express my thoughts, ideas, feelings and concerts. People misunderstands me and my views. My division making power is getting creepled. All steps seems wrong. I am on the edge of getting fired. My managers who were happy 1 year back who all were backing my every decisions now finding faults in my every steps. Though I live in the same house with my parents still we have no communication. Because I couldn't agree to there preset perception, old false believe. I couldn't convince them the correct things. Very small these us becoming a big issues. The problem started when my wife got pregnant and I decided to send her to her parents for safe gestation period against my parents will. They wanted the delivery to be in my area. Now there is miles of gaps between me and my parents. My wife and me daughter is in our house with my parents but still l am deserted. Please help me.

Dear lybrate-user, all your intentions seem to be good and leaning towards fairness, caring and supporting each other. However you must realise that our decisions impact others as well and if they are not satisfied with your decisions, they have a right to voice their concerns just as you have a right. 2. Every story/ picture/ incident has various perspectives and angles to look at from. You seem to be seeing the issue of corruption from your perspective but have not taken into consideration that people whom you fire have families to support or that firing will impact them adversely and the team in number of ways. These employees might have been taking money on the side. But we're they productive and the company grew because of their hard work. Did your bosses want your team to be fired or they were willing to accept some faults over some strengths. You need to see the larger picture and then take a decision, which is wise and workable in the longer run. You seem to have gained a lot of unpopularity over 1 year time. Please examine your actions, and try to see them from the eyes and perspectives of others as well because you don't take any action in a vacuum thinking that others will be fine with all your decisions. Please learn to weigh the pros and cons of your decisions and take action after that. 2. Regarding your wife, again your intention was good to let her have rest and a safe delivery, but your parents were against this decision. Did you try to find out their reasons. Even if they are old and false beliefs. Who are you to judge them? sooner or later. What you believe in will become outdated. So should you not get respect and acceptance for that? their lives have been spent seeing that daughter in laws live with inlaws and deliver. Maybe they feared social ostracization from their community and peers? isn't that a genuine concern? maybe they are dependant on your wife to have their needs met. Isn't it best to find another route so that your wife and they both are taken care of? an open communication always helps to clear doubts and any misunderstanding. However if your parents are very rigid in their thinking and you don't find reasonable reasoning working out with them, then telling them that: you really wished that your wife could stay back and help them, but she's not well and needs rest as well, and if you agreed for this amicable, you would be really happy and peaceful. You could have looked for an alternate source of help etc for your parents. Basically, please remember to include others in decisions which are very important and will impact others as well. Learn to be flexible, tolerant and understanding. Sticking only to your principals and working will not take you far. Living in society with its negatives and positives is a fine balance which you need to achieve to be a successful individual.

I am 58 and passing through much depression due to my unforeseen problem i: e financial, professional,
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 consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Good Morning ~ Anxiety can be an overwhelming issue, which can prevent you for initiating or completing daily activities that require a continuous sustained attention. It seems from your description of the problem which is very brief that you are also having panic attacks. You may benefit from medications for the problems that are associated with distressing symptoms on a daily basis. A psychiatric evaluation may elicit some social problems that are contributing to your condition, and it may be appropriate to start you on medications after a thorough evaluation. I believe that you need to focus as much as you can on the symptoms and divert your attention from them when you recognize them. Also being able to face anxiety evoking situations without causing you to be distressed is something that you can be working on using mindfulness meditation. All said you may need medications to take the edge off of your anxiety.

Smoking is definitely very dangerous habit. Due to smoking, mouth, throat, lungs, heart, brain and mind related disorders, diseases and cancer could result. Quitting smoking is no child's play and it takes time and courage. Best method is to completely quit today (now) and sustain with the help of your mind power. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy should help you doing so.

It might be the a normal variation with age or a starting point for dementia. First get a thorough physical check up done, also get vit b12, vit d, thyroid tests done and see if there is some physical cause for your forgetfulness. If everything is fine you need to see if you are getting stressed and are going through depression. If no then you need to take consulatation from neuro pscyhiatrist.

Dear lybrateuser, -your pain could be due to acidity, do not miss meals, have meals at fixed timings, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, have 7-8 glasses of water for proper digestion -do regular exercise for 20-30 min/day, also include yoga & deep breathing for 5-10 min in the morning -get your stress test done as advised by your physician so that any heart problem is ruled out -the pain may not be due to the massage which you have taken.

Benefits of Shirodhara

Benefits of Shirodhara

Ayurveda is a proven ancient life science that has been curing long term and often, debilitating diseases with a focus on methods like Panchakarma (comprising of pre-Panchakarma treatments like snehan oiling of the body with medicated preparations and swedan medicated steam), oral herbal medications and other tweaks in one's lifestyle that can help in combating the symptoms and advent of diseases. 

Shirodhara is one of the methods followed by Ayurveda, which is said to stimulate the pituitary gland or 'third eye' that focuses on pouring warm medicated oil or medicinal decoctions on a certain point on one's forehead for a focused form of therapy followed by a relaxing head massage. 

Let us find out the various benefits of Shirodhara:

  1. Awakening: With this method of oil flow, it is said that the 'third eye' or the pituitary gland gets activated to a degree where awakening of the senses takes place in the true form of the term. Hormones secreted from the pituitary gland the master gland of the body, help control growth, blood pressure, certain functions of the sex organs, thyroid glands and metabolism as well as some aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, water and salt concentration and the kidneys, temperature regulation and pain relief. This encourages overall better health as the organs also respond and function in a better manner. 
  2. Good for Nervous System: This treatment also helps in stimulating and relaxing the right nerves in the right way which restores the balance the Praan Vaayu . So, the cerebral system also works in a better manner and cognition thrives, leading to a good and healthy state of the nervous system. 
  3. Mental Clarity: When there is clear headedness and a proper balance and flow of chemicals within the brain and the various parts of the body, then there is a better state of mental clarity that the patient can achieve. This can be done with the help of shirodhara as it activates the requisite glands which can produce a more favourable and balanced state of mind. As a consequence, the patient will find that the quality of concentration and productivity as far as various tasks are concerned, will also go up by leaps and bounds. 
  4. Treats Hair Loss: This focussed treatment takes on the hair follicles as well, thanks to the concoction of herbs and oils which is allowed to flow on to the scalp. This can help in preventing and repairing hair loss and hair damage to a great extent due to the nourishment and prolonged treatment method with which the oil is allowed to penetrate deep into the scalp and provide good health to the roots. 
  5. Improves Sleep: This form of oilation therapy is also known to help a person sleep better because the mental faculties work better during the day and this restores the natural rhythm of the body by night, when the right amount of fatigue is achieved thanks to the healing properties of this procedure. 

Thus, Shirodhara is a wholesome treatment for the body, mind and soul. Practice Shirodhara on a regular basis for good overall health.

Dear lybrate-user, depression is like any medical disease like diabetes and bp, aimed at sustenance and not cure. Please continue the same medicines and consult your doctor for change of dose or adding another medicine or cognitive behaviour therapy. Few alternate therapy like yoga and pranayama may be added to tablets. Few nutritional supplements like same, flax seeds and omega 3 fatty acids also can be added to medicines.

How Stress Affect Your Health

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
How Stress Affect Your Health

 

Stress: we've all felt it. Sometimes stress can be a positive force, motivating you to perform well at your piano recital or job interview. But often like when you're stuck in traffic it's a negative force. If you experience stress over a prolonged period of time, it could become chronic unless you take action.

A natural reaction

Have you ever found yourself with sweaty hands on a first date or felt your heart pound during a scary movie? then you know you can feel stress in both your mind and body.

This automatic response developed in our ancient ancestors as a way to protect them from predators and other threats. Faced with danger, the body kicks into gear, flooding the body with hormones that elevate your heart rate, increase your blood pressure, boost your energy and prepare you to deal with the problem.

These days, you're not likely to face the threat of being eaten. But you probably do confront multiple challenges every day, such as meeting deadlines, paying bills and juggling childcare that make your body react the same way. As a result, your body's natural alarm system the fight or flight response may be stuck in the on position. And that can have serious consequences for your health.

Pressure points

Even short-lived, minor stress can have an impact. You might get a stomach-ache before you have to give a presentation, for example. More major acute stress, whether caused by a fight with your spouse or an event like an earthquake or terrorist attack, can have an even bigger impact.

Multiple studies have shown that these sudden emotional stresses especially anger can trigger heart attacks, arrhythmias and even sudden death. Although this happens mostly in people who already have heart disease, some people don't know they have a problem until acute stress causes a heart attack or something worse.

Chronic stress

When stress starts interfering with your ability to live a normal life for an extended period, it becomes even more dangerous. The longer the stress lasts, the worse it is for both your mind and body. You might feel fatigued, unable to concentrate or irritable for no good reason, for example. But chronic stress causes wear and tear on your body, too.

Stress can make existing problems worse. 2 in one study, for example, about half the participants saw improvements in chronic headaches after learning how to stop the stress-producing habit of catastrophizing, or constantly thinking negative thoughts about their pain. 3 chronic stress may also cause disease, either because of changes in your body or the overeating, smoking and other bad habits people use to cope with stress. Job strain high demands coupled with low decision-making latitude is associated with increased risk of coronary disease, for example. 4 other forms of chronic stress, such as depression and low levels of social support, have also been implicated in increased cardiovascular risk. And once you're sick, stress can also make it harder to recover. One analysis of past studies, for instance, suggests that cardiac patients with so-called type d personalities characterized by chronic distress face higher risks of bad outcomes. 5

What you can do

Reducing your stress levels can not only make you feel better right now, but may also protect your health long-term.

In one study, researchers examined the association between positive affect feelings like happiness, joy, contentment and enthusiasm and the development of coronary heart disease over a decade. 6 they found that for every one-point increase in positive affect on a five-point scale, the rate of heart disease dropped by 22 percent.

While the study doesn't prove that increasing positive affect decreases cardiovascular risks, the researchers recommend boosting your positive affect by making a little time for enjoyable activities every day.

Other strategies for reducing stress include:


    
    Identify what's causing stress. Monitor your state of mind throughout the day. If you feel stressed, write down the cause, your thoughts and your mood. Once you know what's bothering you, develop a plan for addressing it. That might mean setting more reasonable expectations for yourself and others or asking for help with household responsibilities, job assignments or other tasks. List all your commitments, assess your priorities and then eliminate any tasks that are not absolutely essential.
    
    
    Build strong relationships. Relationships can be a source of stress. Research has found that negative, hostile reactions with your spouse cause immediate changes in stress-sensitive hormones, for example. 7 but relationships can also serve as stress buffers. Reach out to family members or close friends and let them know you're having a tough time. They may be able to offer practical assistance and support, useful ideas or just a fresh perspective as you begin to tackle whatever's causing your stress.
    
    
    Walk away when you're angry. Before you react, take time to regroup by counting to 10. Then reconsider. Walking or other physical activities can also help you work off steam. Plus, exercise increases the production of endorphins, your body's natural mood-booster. Commit to a daily walk or other form of exercise a small step that can make a big difference in reducing stress levels.
    
    
    Rest your mind. According to apa's 2012 stress in america survey, stress keeps more than 40 percent of adults lying awake at night. To help ensure you get the recommended seven or eight hours of shut-eye, cut back on caffeine, remove distractions such as television or computers from your bedroom and go to bed at the same time each night. Research shows that activities like yoga and relaxation exercises not only help reduce stress, but also boost immune functioning. 8
    
    
    Get help. If you continue to feel overwhelmed, consult with a psychologist, homeopath or other licensed mental health professional who can help you learn how to manage stress effectively. He or she can help you identify situations or behaviour that contribute to your chronic stress and then develop an action plan for changing them.
