Hi I will prescribe you some harmless flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Buy from a shop who sells original medicines. Mix 5 drops of impatiens + 5 drops of pine. Mix these with 100 ml water and take by mouth before sleeping every day at night.

Hello, the best way of releasing the mental stress/ tension is through exercises (sp. Yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. But as you have high b. P, consult and do the exercises under a qualified instructor/ yoga-teacher only. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back. Stress can make mental health problems worse.

I am 21 year old male and I am suffering from TB from 1 and a half month . I am addicted in drinking and smoking but I had left when I heard of TB in me. Can I drink alcohol once in 2 month because of habit.

Pulmonologist, Rajkot
Hi lybrate-user, see as you have left smoking & drinking, then it is not habit for you. It is very nice that you could have stopped it. But you should take advantage of it by not restarting it. See, once in 2 month will not harm you, but habit starts from there only.

Good Morning ~ I am so glad you are seeking help for your wife. I am sure that if it were not for your your wife would have been lost due to paranoid schizophrenia. I also realize how hard it is to deal with someone with paranoid schizophrenia and realize that your problems as a care giver are immense. I believe after having read your description of the medications regimen and her symptoms, I am sure you need second opinion and you are at the right place. A small tweak in the medications that you use along with the help of a psychiatrist may make a large difference in your symptoms. I am sure you will also benefit from a paid appointment as it will not be in a public forum and you can get prescriptions for your wife if I believe she would need some medication changes.

If I occasionally dream of someone I lost a few years ago in an accident, what does it mean?

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
If I occasionally dream of someone I lost a few years ago in an accident, what does it mean?
It probably means that you are either missing that person or still have strong memories of that person. Our dreams are a combination of our own desires, memories, experiences, imagination etc. Hence all dreams may not really mean anything. But if you occasionally have this dream then you need to understand your more subtle feelings about losing that person. If it was after an accident, then it was a shock for you. It might have caused some trauma for you. Understand and accept your feelings of loss, sadness, pain and grief. Eventually you need to" let it go" life is a flow. We lose some people but for the survivors, the journey continues. When your mind accepts that, the deceased person is not going to come back and you need to move ahead in life, tell yourself that, that person has gone away and you have a life ahead without you. You will learn to let go of that person and move on.

My wife is schizophrenia patient, do not want to take medicine What will do? please suggest.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
In a patient with schizophrenia who is not taking medicines, should be assessed by a psychiatrist asap either in the clinical/hospital setting. But if the patient is not willing to visit a psychiatrist, the patient should be seen on a homevisit, and if the latter is not feasible, patient should be admitted directly. Intensive medications should be initiated with timely initiation of insight oriented psychotherapy. Long acting antipsychotic (medication) injectables are used for such patients quite frequently, which can be given once a fortnite or month for patients who have problems with compliance.

Your love can only be affection for n aunt and not physical for sex. It is your age that makes you feel like this and you have to control mind from unwanted thoughts and be just her affectionate nephew and not in other ways.

I am very depressed now a days due to family issues I do not fee happy don't like to be with people always stay alone.
Feeling sad and depressed always, feeling stressed due to daily family issues, inability to deal with ongoing stress, becoming socially withdrawn are all signs of depressive phase. If you are facing these symptoms persistently for more than 2 weeks, you should not hesitate in consulting a psychiatrist for help.

My brother is suffering from psychiatric problem(Schizophrenia) since 25 years. Medicine is continuing. His behavior is like normal, but he is purchasing news papers and wrtting in news paper for whole day. No improvement brought over that. Can You suggest how to escape from that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your brother is obviously not on a rehabilitation program of occupational therapy. Mere medical approach will not suffice. He needs to know how to spend his time productively; and his mind and body needs to be engaged in some useful manner. His mind is already busy with disturbing thoughts and it needs to be distracted and focused in activities that can train the brain to trigger more healthy neuronal pathways and thus become a healthy person. He may ideally contact a psychotherapist for this follow up. Additionally, I could suggest some exercises that he could do to serve the same purpose. You may contact me if you need them.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. When you are greaving, your mind is continuously engaged in sad and disturbing thoughts and feeling of loss and perhaps guilt. When sadness over powers you it is difficult to feel any other feelings. Even feeling happy makes you feel guilty and uneasy. Slow but effective way to over cone sadness is to engage yourself in some neutral activities such as cleaning. Walking or readjng a light book. Once you try that for few days you may be ready for following things. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free contact me and we could work together for few weeks to months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Pregnancy is a physiological process and not a pathology (disease) we have put lots of what is to be done and what not, which is only creating hindrances in a natural process. Trust you body's intelligence. Birthing in animals is a such a smooth process, body takes care of everything. Ovarian cyst is not very uncommon. Just follow your gynaec's advice and enjoy this rare change, which will bring so much of joy to you. Remember fear and stress only harms the baby inside. Take a counseling session if you must. Relax.

Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

Any type of medication for Schizophrenia is useless or by using these medicines only can give symptomatic relief/ temporary relief or suppress the symptoms for some time. You should go for Psychological Counseling and Psychotherapy, these therapies can be useful. Try these.

Hi, I am 23 year old,pursuing CA,currently in my 1st year of articleship. Nine months back I got into a relationship with a man who was 6 years older than me,this was the first time I ever got indulged in emotions of love.I felt our relationship was serious and will reach to a serious commitment,but he broke up with me in last July. After that I have gone into a depression,which I don't show to anyone.I am dealing in my own way. I feel very sad that a 3 months relationship has affected me so deeply and I am not able to get out of that sadness. My studies are getting affected,my work is getting affected. I hardly feel like smiling,I want to get out of this sadness and lead my life happily. Suggest a remedy doc. Thanks

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

That was your first mistake and hopefully, last too. Never get into a relationship, hoping for it to end up into a lasting one or even into marriage. All relationships are like trial-runs. Use it to learn how men operate, how they think, how fickle or strong they are in commitments, what happens to you around them, etc. Having learned from one person you move on to another a somewhat learned person and check how the next one functions. You will be surprised that there is so much to learn and understand that it is very naive to get deeply involved with the very first person you meet. It is also advisable, if you are considering long-term relations, to find someone closer to your age and below 5 years of an age difference. 6 years is marginal, anyway. Falling in love is a lovely state as long as it lasts smoothly. That is why breaking up is so difficult, especially, if it is decided by the other person. Divorcing after several years of bed and board, with kids to boot, and departing from each other can be devastating. So it was better that you did not enter matrimonial obligations and then had this fallout. This incident must be treated as a learning experience. There is no remedy but that you carry some wisdom into the next friendship and be perceptive and also prudent in choice. Don?t waste time brooding over this fellow. Move on quickly and dispose of all associations of his and do not frequent places you two visited. In other words take him out of your system and environment and in no time you will get over him. I am assuming that fortunately you did not get into intimate relations with him. Even if that had happened, nothing to worry about. If you are worthy, he is the loser. Look at the positives, and get into circulation with other friends quickly. Hiding your depression and sadness is not advisable ? talk about it and deal with it soon. Do some group study or attend some tutorials to help you with your studies. Cheer up it is not the end of the world, even if you feel so.

Hi. You should take tab. Ipill 72 with in 72 hours. It make you safe. And pregnancy also depends on your period timing. Most chance of pregnancy are in days before 5 days of menses and after 5 days of pregnancy. If this happened other days of this days then no chances of pregnancy. Avoid late night party or more intake alcohol.

I'm 26 years old guy and I can not take my family pressure about doing job. What should I do?
Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.
