Don't worry, you are perfectly normal. Some people are more hygiene conscious than others. All of us have a habit of doing something in our daily routine and if we don't do that we start feeling low. Try to meditate every morning for 5 minutes to keep yourself calm and composed.

Instead of worrying or being anxious, meditate and feel peaceful and happy. It has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So take to and feel peaceful and happy by finding and reading books, either from internet. Hope this helps, sincerely.

Hello, the best way of getting rid of any mental/ mind problem as well as 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 and makes your mind calm! 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.

General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Do not panic. In anxiety people tend to amplify their symptoms or whatever little sensation they are having in the body and see it as life threatening. Continue to take mediation for anxiety and do some deep breathing exercises. Pay less attention to your body.

I am 29 years old arranged married and mother of a 6 years old boy I believe in love and love stories. I could not find or others words I didn't find anyone to be loved. After 5 years of marriage I met someone whom I love more than anything. I feel he is my soulmate. But I could never fullfill his dreamt criteria. I feel as a failure I feel very lonely.

The grass will seem greener on the other side, always: more so because you are not happy in your current marriage. Arranged marriages have their pluses and minuses. You have to make good with what you have. You will always find better men and soul mates in life because of your dissatisfaction. I don?t know what is wrong with your present relationship but, if you work on it, maybe it will improve. There is a child too to consider. Love and romance in novels are portrayed with some drama, and cannot be taken for real. They do appeal to the fantasizing mind, and to people who are chronic and diehard romantics. But real life is different; and fiction can eulogize it beyond proportion for dramatic effect and for commercial marketability. Come down to mother earth and face the issues in your current marriage, and only if that cannot be sorted out because of the other?s unwillingness or irreconcilable differences, you can decide to call it quits. As a principle, it is always advisable never to get into another relationship while still in one. Now let me give you the bad news: a true soul mate is one with whom you find the perfect chemistry, both ways. The last couple of words are the crux: if you do not ?fulfill his dreamt criteria, you do not have the right chemistry. Even in normal relationships, it is a two-way street: you must both feel the need for each other. Any one-way relationship does not have the right ingredients to make a good match: which is often called compatibility. So then you are being very unfair to yourself to come to the conclusion that you are a failure because you cannot meet up to his expectations. He needs to accept you as you are, otherwise he can lump it, period. That does not determine your worthiness. Go back to the drawing board and work out the criteria in your marriage before looking out for another.

Hi doctor, I have been consuming excessive alcohol for the past few days. Please suggest or advice a home remedy to get the alcohol out of my life soon.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You can try the recommendations I propose but it depends a lot on your cooperation. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

You have essential fatty deficiency along with several other vitamins as a result your seretonin (neuro transmitter) and other feel good enzyme levels are low as a result your body is not capable of stress management. You must eat walnuts, flex seeds, fishes like salmon, mackerel, sardines etc. Severe deficiency is treated nutritional supplements, especially when the soils are depleted and our diet is unable to provide our body with essential nutrients.

Hi i am Feeling depressed, tired after sleep, weight loss. Mood swings, no hunger. Thts all wrong with me.
Causes and Symptoms of Depression Physical inactivity or hyperactivity. Insomnia or sleeping too much. Poor or an increased appetite. Weight loss or weight gain. Decreased interest in pleasurable activities, like sex. Decreased energy and fatigue. Feelings of guilt. Worthlessness, pessimism, and hopelessness. Another remedy that can bottle things up, but reacts quite differently to the Ignatia patient is Natrum muriaticum. This is one of my most frequently used homeopathic treatments for symptoms of stress, such as those typified by mild depression.

My mother has been suffering from schizophrenia for almost 36 years. Although she is on medication, yet she is nt able to live in a healthy way. I dnt think the treatment is working. She get these phases of relapse every year or whenever there is some important event . I want her to live a happy life and get well. I am searching for a good doctor who cn actually help .

Dear lybrate user, it is very difficult to manage a person with schizophrenia. The care givers need lots of patience to deal with the person. It would help if you start counselling for your mother, along with the medication. It needs to be explored what is the trigger for her when there is some important event at home. I think even you and other people at home also need to seek help from the counsellor so that you are not drained out completely while looking after your mother. The counsellor will help you to manage her emotions and explore more resources for yourself. Take care.

Suffering From Mental And Physical Stress? Try Homeopathy

Suffering From Mental And Physical Stress? Try Homeopathy

For the past two centuries, Homeopaths have concentrated on the interconnection between psychology and physiology. It has been known for long that Homeopathy has no side effects on a person's overall health and thus, it should be implemented in curing mental and physical stress. Mental stress may result from a person's coping skills. You may respond to stress in a wrong way and this further complicates your situation.

You may fail to control your instinctive reactions. Medications in Homeopathy can actually remedy disorders regarding stress management. In many cases, it has been noticed that a physiological disease has a psychological impetus to itself. For instance, people falling under the 'Type A personality' category are more susceptible to heart problems. Their heart problems can be serious enough to make them undergo bypass surgeries. 

An operation can be avoided, if only reasons behind problems at the surface are understood. Patients belonging to the 'Type A personality' category can suffer from 'hurry sickness' with symptoms like bouts of anger, impatience, aggression and hurriedness. These factors together enhance the risk of having heart problems later in life.

The following medicines tackle disorders without any side effects:

  1. Homeopaths advise you to take Aconitum napellus to reduce physical stress. Aconite napellus is known to treat problems such as a dry mouth, an irritable skin, a pounding heart and so on so forth. This can even cure problems resulting from a traumatic episode in past.
  2. Another Homeopathic medicine prescribed to deal with anxieties about future is Arsenicum album. If you have fears about your safety, about certainty or about what future has in store for you, this medicine can help you out.
  3. The medicine Phosphorus is known to treat fears of being alone. Many people are afraid of being alone. They need company all the time. Phosphorus also tackles common fears, such as fear of thunderstorms, fear of the dark or fear of ghosts for that matter.
  4. People facing anxieties about health or anxieties about death often evade sleeping at night. They hallucinate and see apparitions. Mental stress therefore, leads to physical stress. Kali- arsenicosum is one Homeopathic medicine to take care of such problems.

Homeopathy as an alternative branch of medicine, which comes to your relief without causing other bodily problems during the course of treatment. Hence, to fight mental or physical stress you must try out Homeopathy.

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.
