General Physician,
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 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 Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

I feel pain sometimes under my left arm rib. I do smoke sometimes. I am 33 years old.
Depending on the extent of the smoking you need to visit a cardiologist, just to rule out any effect of the smoking. Then if any tests are required that will also help pin-point the problem and cause.

I have loss my mind memory what I do.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
I have loss my mind memory what I do.
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

Different Ways to Boost Women's Health

Different Ways to Boost Women's Health

Women's health concerns are a little different from those of men. If you're a woman, these tips will soon have you feeling fit and energetic. 

Eat a healthy diet: you want to eat as close to a natural foods diet as you can, that means a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and fewer processed foods. Eat whole grains and high-fiber foods and choose leaner cuts of meat, fish, and poultry. Include low-fat dairy products in your diet as well - depending on your age, you need between 800 and 1, 500 milligrams of calcium daily to help avoid osteoporosis. Avoid foods and beverages that are high in calories, sugar, salt, and fat.

Apple cider vinegar in water is the best way to start your day. This bitter drink helps to stimulate the stomach's digestive juices, to help with food digestion. Try taking two teaspoons in water 10 minutes before breakfast.

Healthy eating will help you maintain a proper weight for your height, which is important because being overweight can lead to a number of illnesses. Try some raw vegetables, such as celery, carrots, broccoli, cucumbers, or zucchini with a dip made from low-fat yogurt.

Exercise: you want to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week, if not every day. Aerobic exercises (walking, swimming, jogging, bicycling, dancing) are good for women's health in general and especially for your heart

Manage stress: no matter what stage of her life - daughter, mother, grandmother - a woman often wears many hats and deals with a lot of pressure and stress. Take a few minutes every day just to relax and get your perspective back again. It doesn't take long, and mental health is important to your physical well-being.' you also can manage stress with exercise, relaxation techniques, or meditation.

Avoid risky habits: stay away from cigarettes and people who smoke. Don't use drugs. If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Most women's health studies show that women can safely consume one drink a day

Hi, my age is 26, I am running a business, I am a chain smoker minimum 15 to 20 cigarette a day from past 4 years due to business tension. Now I want to quit the smoking, how can I quit my smoking habit and how can I clean my lungs which cause damage due to smoking from past 4 years? Is there any treatment? I heard there is treatment of cleaning lungs, so please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must simultaneously treat yourself for the tension.You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. 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. 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. 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 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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

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 you are already showing a lot of strength. There are several things and circumstances that we cannot control and change. Knowing a person closely and letting them go leaves us all shattered and memories play like a tape recorder over and over. Please consider taking counselling sessions (online or in person) to help yourself cope better with the situation. All the best!

How does my drinking affects me and my baby as I am pregnant?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
The World Health Organization (WHO) advises pregnant women to not drink alcohol at all. We don't know how much alcohol is safe for you to have while you're pregnant. That's why many experts advise you to cut out alcohol throughout pregnancy. Also the actual amount of alcohol you can have during pregnancy is probably different for every woman because everyone metabolizes alcohol differently. If you do decide to drink alcohol take no more than one (10ml) or two units of alcohol, once or twice a week. Alcohol is a toxin. When you drink alcohol, it rapidly reaches your baby across the placenta, via your bloodstream. If you drink too much alcohol during pregnancy it can permanently damage your developing baby's cells. This could affect how your baby's face, organs and brain grow. Heavy drinking can also damage your baby's nervous system. This can result in your baby having learning difficulties and problems with movement and coordination throughout his life. The term for all these problems is fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). It's called a spectrum because the problems can range from mild learning difficulties, through to birth defects. Full-blown fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is at the extreme end of the spectrum of disorders. Babies with FAS tend to have facial defects, to be born small and to carry on being small for their age. These children will have learning difficulties, poor coordination and behavioral problems for the rest of their lives. Heavy drinking can also cause problems with your pregnancy, such as miscarriage and premature birth. Too much alcohol can even increase the risk of your baby being stillborn. The effects are more in the first and third trimesters.

I am sorry that your father abandoned you and mom in childhood. This is certainly having a great impact on you. Your anger towards your father is causing you too much distress and I suggest that you speak to a counselor and purge it out of your system, and soon too. As a result of your father?s absence, you and your mother have been stuck in a symbiosis, where you are unable to see her love someone else. Naturally you thought she was all there for you alone but you now find that she is devoting her time and love to another. Here again it will help to talk to a counselor to handle this intolerance you have developed. It seems that mom has fulfilled her duty towards you and feels like she can move on with her life. You must look at her with empathy. If you cannot tolerate her meeting her needs, you can imagine how much of a sacrifice she has made living without love herself and devoting all these years exclusively for your education and well being! You have to break out of the symbiosis and grow up to be your own man. If you truly love your mom, you must encourage her to live her life now that she has shaped yours. Because you are stuck in the symbiosis in an unhealthy manner, you feel like you are not able to break the apron strings and move on with your life. But move on you must. Mom sacrificed to give you life but you do not seem to appreciate that and cannot even seem to want to live. You need to get on with your life and will understand all this better, if and when you get into another relationship yourself: now that is something I suggest you explore. It will open your eyes to other people?s needs and thereby you will have an understanding of your mom. Life is very precious and you are too. Be a man and go conquer the world. Life has just begun for you but you may end up a quitter, if you do not live a life of your own and in a most fruitful way. A counselor will certainly help you in many ways to reach your milestones in life and grow in maturity soon.
