How can I stop this medicine and come out...
Yes there is definitely a permanent treatment for acidity with the help of ayurvedic medicines. First you need to avoid eating junk foods and outside food completely. Stop oily, spicy, sour food. Avoid eating spicy non vegetarian food. Rather eat boiled or grilled chicken n fish. Start. Himcocid syp 2-2-2 chandrakala vati 2-2-2 avipattikar 1-1-1 saaraswataarishta kaadha 2spoons twice orally with equal quantity of warm water for your anxiety. Do not stop clonotril without your doctor's advice. May be you can request him to gradually reduce your dose after 3 months of my treatment. Do shirodhaara treatment in a renowned panchakarma centre.

Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum 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.

Dear Gaurav, Welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for "effective learning" techniques or you may consult a psychologist. Take care.

Dear, aapko obsessive thoughts aatha hai, pooja ke samai. Obsessive thoughts mane ocd nahi. Aap un thoughts se darte ho, is liye woh thoughts baar baar aatha hai. Aap pareshaan hote hai, or jyaada pareshaan hote ho, aur thoughts fir aate hai. Aap to bhakth hai. Ache dil wale ho. Bura kaam nahi karte ho. Aap jo bhi karte ho, aapse bhagwaan karaata hai. Samaj lo, bhagwan aapka dushman nahi, balki dosth hai. Dosth kabhi dosth ko pareshaan kar saktha hai? vishwaas karo, bhagwaan sabh sambhaal lega. Take care.

Hello! much as one would like to help you i'm afraid a deaddiction process cannot be initiated online. You'll have to visit a drug deaddiction unit in your city. The process is long and uncomfortable but well worth the effort. You'll need a lot of motivation and tenacity to adhere to the protocol.

To increase thinking habbit and read fast you have to practise it regularly. To read fast you have to read the headings and bold letters leaving aside the whole page. I don't know how one can become introvert as it is the temperament of a person which can't be acquired. But one can control one's behaviour and reactions by practice.

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.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

HI. The best decision is move away from this negativity and people who value money more than your worth. its good that you got rid of her and you should not ever think of going back to the same person. You are very very young. A lot of girls will enter your life and you will form meaningful relations. Tell your friends strictly not to mention about her. The best way to make someone realize is MOVE ON. Focus on building a career and have meaningful relation and friendship. Soon it will be fine.

I have recently learnt about the demerits of Oleanz RT 20, which is being given to one of my relationship, who is under treatment for last 9-10 months after having diagnosed for Schizophrenia. Now, I seek your kind advice on the following lines; 01. Will the treatment continue life long? 02. Could the dozes be gradually reduced e.g.from 20 mg to 15 to 10 to 5 & then stopped. 03. Can a person fully recover from his past ailment of Schizophrenia? 04. Are there any alternative for Oleanz, which is less harmful in the long-term?

Oleanz is an excellent drug for acute/ immediate management of schizophrenia. Whether the treatment is going to be short lived or life long cannot be answered now, it depends on various factors and patient response. Yes the dose can be gradually brought down if the patient improves and maintains well. Total recovery in Schizophrenia rests on nearly 40-50 prognostic factors. There are alternatives to oleanz.

This could be a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder. It cannot be treated with sleep medicines. But the easier way to treat it is with medicines (NOT sleeping pills). There is a way of treating it without medicines, in the form of behavior therapy. But this will take more time and effort from the patient's side. Please give us some more details of the symptoms so that we can help you better with a tailor made plan. Take care!

Most adults don't get better on their own and may require some type of treatment. The goal of phobia treatment is to reduce your anxiety and fear and to help you better manage your reactions to the object or situation that causes them. Professional treatment can help you overcome your phobia or manage it effectively so you don't become a prisoner to your fears. Talking with a trained mental health professional can help you deal with your phobias. Several types of psychotherapy may be effective. Desensitisation or exposure therapy--focuses on changing your response to the object or situation that you fear and may be helpful for phobias. Gradual, repeated exposure to the cause of your phobia may help you learn to conquer your anxiety. For example, if you're afraid of elevators, your therapy may progress from simply thinking about getting into an elevator, to looking at pictures of elevators, to going near an elevator, to stepping into an elevator. Next, you may take a one-floor ride, then ride several floors and then ride in a crowded elevator. Cognitive behavioural therapy--involves exposure combined with other techniques to learn ways to view and cope with the feared object or situation differently. You learn alternative beliefs about your fears and the impact they have on your life. There's special emphasis on learning to develop a sense of mastery and control of your thoughts and feelings. Take care.

I'm not able to concentrate. Properly in my study. What should I do. And I've 2nd pu exam. So please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your age is the factor. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.
