Stress - Special diet for stress.

Stress - Special diet for stress.

STRESS -BUSTING FOODS

Stressful events cause our cortisol levels to rise.cortisol causes food cravings, and in women, those cravings tend to be strongest for carbs, especially sweet according to research.

Stress and nutrition have always been linked- it's a fact. Someone with a healthy and balanced diet is likely to be far less than those someone with a poor diet.

Healthy, nutritious food and breathing exercise are the simplest methods for relieving stress.

Food with high vitamin and minerals actively help to reduce stress levels.

Food and drinks that can trigger and aggravates stress includes.

*Tea, coffee, coca, energy drinks.
* Fast foods and takeways.
* Butter cheese.
* Meat and shellfish.
* Sugar, alcohol, soda, soft drinks, chocolate drinks.
* Beverages like soft drinks which contain no vitamins and minerals.

STRESS - Busting food how they work:

1.Bowl of oatmeal boost levels of serotonine a calming brain chemical.

2.Complex carbs- All carbs prompt the brain to make more serotonine. whole grain bread, pasta, cereals, oatmeal.

3.Spinach- Too little magnesium may trigger a headache and fatigue compounding the effect of stress.other green leafy vegetables, cooked soybeans, fillet of salmon also high in magnesium.

4.Fish- omega 3 fatty acid found in fish such as salmon and tuna can prevent surges in stress hormone and may help to protect against heart disease, depression, and PMS.

5.Black tea- Drinking black tea may help you help recover from stressful events more quickly than tea drinkers.

6.Avocados- one of the best ways to reduce high blood pressure is to get enough potassium, and half an avocado has more potassium than a medium-sized banana.

7.Almonds- vitamins E to bolster the immune system, plus B vitamins, which may make you more resilient during bouts of stress or depression.

8.Raw veggie- crunchy raw vegetables can help ease stress in a purely mechanical way. Munching celery or carrot sticks help release a clenched jaw that can ward off tension.

10. Milk- another bedtime stress buster is the time-honored glass of warm milk. Research shows that calcium eases anxiety and mood swings linked to PMS. ADIVCE TO TAKE LOW FAT AND SKIM MILK.

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.

If you need further assistance feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to cope up with your personal and marital relationship. For home remedies you have to change your sleeping habits, eating habits, exercise must to improve your sexual power, to know more in detail please contact me either through text chat or call online consultation so that I could help you overcome this problem. Take care. Be relaxed.

I have a habit of smattering. I always start smattering when I was speaking in public. That was very embarrassing for me. So I want to know how could I get rid from this.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

I am a bds student so lot of are for studying but I can't remember much more what I am studying. And inside my head sometime a vibration is feeling.

Dear , the best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. The vibration feeling could be due to anxiety and stress. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.

I used to chew tobacco for almost 20 years, which I could leave now since last one.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, 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.

Hello lybrate-user. You might be having symptoms of depression. The common symptoms include sadness of mood, decreased interest in work, lethargy, irritability, low energy levels, negative thoughts and suicidal thoughts, poor appetite and sleep. In case you have these symptoms, you should immediately start the treatment. Depression is a very common disorder and is easily treatable. A combination of medications and psychotherapy (counselling) is the most effective treatment. And please don't hesitate in meeting a doctor. The longer you wait, the more difficult it becomes to treat. So meet a nearby psychiatrist as soon as possible.

You are suffering with psychological phobia. Due to unprotected sex. Internally you feel guilty and now taking medicine. You do not capacity control your internal thoughts. In that case it is better to not take any risks in life. You are doing one mistake. Next time will not go risky process. Fear is more dangerous than disease. It is common.

It improves your life style modification. Do not think too much about this problem. Do not spend alone. It is very dangerous. Be share your personal feelings and problems with your closed friends and family members. Be sociable all the time. Be happy all the time. Do not repeat the mistake. It is better to keep away from this aspects. Be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

I don't know I am a OCD patient or not, but symptoms show that it is a psychological problem, every times I feel that all those things around me are contaminated, so I am habituated in washing hands legs and also in bathing, and many times it is feeling so scared and it becomes a feelings for suicide.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
You are suffering from OCD from what you say. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

I am a boy of age 16. Is it right to watch lesbian videos when my mind says me to watch it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am a boy of age 16. Is it right to watch lesbian videos when my mind says me to watch it.
You are still at a very impressionable age and anything that is suggestible can sway your opinions and also your choices. So, it is advisable to keep off these videos. You need to wait for at least four years to be able to discern these type of issues. Your male sex hormone, testosterone, is very active right now and lesbian videos can take your sexual leanings in another direction and it will then become difficult to reverse it easily.
