I am 16 years old male and I am suffering from psychosis such as chemical imbalance, does transcranial magnetic stimulation is done for psychosis .does it works?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Shaik, rTMS is repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. It is one of the modes of treatment - but not the only mode. If drugs do not work or if you can not tolerate drugs and if you are suicidal, it will be advised. You can take it at conscious level unlike ECT that is done under anaesthesia. It needs a number of sessions. Please discuss with you r doctor about it. You can assess the improvement yourself. But you need to continue the medicines also along with rTMS.

Dear, this is the fate of many young married girls across india. And therefore it is quite common. Being common is your motivation. You cannot change your mother in law. Instead, love your husband and do not complain about mother in law to your husband. If you do so, you will get the support of your husband. Understand the situation and get positive motivation from helpless compulsion. Take care.

Major depressive disorder and Anxiety could be effectively managed with the help of a combination of psychotherapy, exercise, meditation and medicines.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy is found to be much effective in this case. Therapies could be lengthy procedure. But patients should understand that, they are not focusing on cure, but effective management. Effective management is equivalent to cure.

I noticed my hand shiver when I do some work sometime, I am a smoker but only smoke 3 cigratees daily. Is smoking is the reason behind it? Please guide me. Thanks.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, it could be if you have been smoking for a long time especially during your adolescence period. It is not enough to quit smoking, which is in itself an excellent thing, but now you must do something to return your ravaged body, mind, and brain back to a healthy state. Depending on when you quit and how much you have smoked, it will take time for your health to revert to old times. To hasten it you must do some effective things immediately. You must take one day at a time when quitting. 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.

My friend has a habit of drinking alcohol. Because of that he face many family problem also. And he want to give up drinking but he can't. What should he do to do that?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is really heartening to know that he himself wants to give up the habit. Since the habit has become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a 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 him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

Dear Sravan, i don't know your age now. But at the age of 17 years masturbating 2 times daily is normal. Masturbation relieves anxiety in teenagers. It can not cause anxiety by itself. But feeling guilty of masturbation and trying not to masturbate may cause anxiety and increase it.

Dear lybrate-user, probably it is your brain neurochemical that is making you feel like committing suicide. Please go to a psychiatrist and get treated. Depression is like a passing cloud. You yourself can observe that there is few hours when you feel good also. Whenever you felt hopeless in the past how did you cope up. Use the same coping now also. Now you have few more strengths with you to cope up. Actually if you think of your life you can see many good things happened. You are not disabled in any way. Many of your main organs are functioning well. Nobody can be 100% fine. Just some chemicals are low - they can be corrected.

I turned 18 this september and I have been going through maladaptive daydreaming since 2 years. I am thereby not able to concentrate on my studies and I just keep on imagining. I have researched for so many times on internet and concerned various doctors. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
A huge part of the problem will be the fact that you are in your late adolescence. As a result I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. This might be the least of your problems though. Normally most disturbances that were not resolved earlier will come up for the last time during this age seeking a resolution. So what you are looking at in effect is that this may be a sign of something that needs attention and you and your parents are well advised to meet with a counselor and describe what is going on with you. The combination of unresolved childhood issues with the hormonal disturbances will have a serious impact. Your parents may be able to throw light about any developmental issues that may be contributing to this situation. Then a treatment course could be safely devised and the necessary follow up could be planned. If done soon the possibilities are really good. So don’t waste time and seek help immediately. The late adolescence is a period of two years and so it is not surprising that you have had these problems for this long. The day dreaming is not a good sign because you are disconnecting from the reality and it may be an avoidance mechanism to face the reality which may have something bothering you that you don’t want to look at. If you know of anything true in this sense please meet with a counselor soon. You must face your problem and if the issues seem too difficult then some more intense intervention may be needed. The prognosis is good if you work on this early. If this gets worse I do not know if you will be willing to even accept you have a problem.

In depression negative thoughts and suspiciousness happen it is the symptom of depression. Your loneliness is your enemy. Why do not you share your personal feelings with your wife. Do not think unnecessary matters. You have one daughter think about her. Do not spoil your marital status with unnecessary doubts. Financial problems are the main cause of all these problems. Better to analyse your financial problems and think about how to overcome from it. This is the work and think about these situations. Take the help of friends and family members. Do not be alone. Share your internal frustrated thoughts to your close mates and friends. Be friends and be sociable. Do not be depressed. Be create your own entertainment channels. Best of luck.

in this stage better to join small job. if you go regularly job. your moods are very good. searching for good job. thinking always about job. it is not good to you. better to join small job. after joining job. do the job perfect manner. not for money. it improves your personal status. later search for good job. at the time of doing job. we search so many good jobs. if not come good job. then search another one. but you always do some job. you may not control yourself with out job. so it is better to do small job. then you search. dont think aloneness. dont sit in home. spend most of the time with your friends and family members. take some one help regarding job. talk your elders about job matters. share your internal feelings and problems with them. no one is not settled in one day. every one crossed this stage. so opportunities are come in future. dont feel depressive. be positive and be optimistic and be sociable. your alone thing is the result of bad thoughts. so better to share others. it is always good to you. be friendly with others. read some good inspirational books. make a busy schedule. always feel comfortable and relaxed manner. ok all the best.

Scott m peck in his book? the road less travelled, begins with a three word statement. It stands alone like a one-line paragraph and it reads? life is difficult. Then he suggests that we should not attempt to change this fact but that we should change ourselves to approach this situation by, discipline. Now even if you are depressed, do not give in to it. In fact I always recommend that this is the only condition that you must fight by doing the opposite of what you feel like doing. You must exercise vigorously to counter the depression. Exercise is the best holistic medicine for almost all diseases. Perseverance is the key to getting a job. I hope you have registered with all the online and other placement agencies to widen the scope of getting a job. You must cultivate hope and those who are positive attract positive forces and events towards themselves. I hope you have faith in god because ultimately he is the one who is in command. Pray and keep the faith and surely things will suddenly turn around. In hope there is health but in despair there is failure and loss. You can meet with a counselor to generate hope and cultivate hope.

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.

You are 23 years, you should be able to do the same without any medications. Passionate sex lies in the mind of the partners. Make sure both of you are attractive to each other and have a blast. If you had been 40 or 50 plus, I can understand the need for medicines. This age it s not necessary, unless there is an underlying disorder.

Can Yoga Improve Your IQ?

Can Yoga Improve Your IQ?

When you get a compliment, 'smart thinking or you are intelligent or that was intelligent of you', you definitely feel good. These comments fill us with confidence, admiration and pride and we want it to happen to us again and again. But owing to a busy schedule and long working hours it might not be possible. Having said this, it does not mean that a person cannot stay intelligent throughout. This can be easily achieved by regular meditation. Regular meditation and yoga helps the mind to be more reflective and efficient.

Here are reasons how yoga and meditation lead to an intellectual learning and growth:

  1. Utilizes the brain: Almost everyone uses one half of their brain more and this leads to imbalance. Meditation is believed to sync the left and the right hemispheres, thereby allowing neural connection and great processing power. When logical left and creative right brains start working in harmony, then solving problems becomes easy; and it also increases creativity, deep thinking comes to be known of and concentration and focus magnifies. Highly successful people usually display whole brain synchronization.
  2. Functional capabilities of brain enhance due to meditation: Research backs it that meditation increases the gray matter thickness of the brain regions, thus making the brain smarter, bigger and faster. This is very similar to doing physical exercise which makes the muscles denser and stronger. The increase in Functional Capabilities of brain is based on the concept of neuroplasticity, which states that our intelligence is not based on genetics and there are some things which can be done to improve the way our brain works. Meditation is a good brain enhancer with an ability to increase intelligence.
  3. Beneficial brainwave patterns can be seen: Meditation can help to guide the brainwaves into beneficial frequencies. The frequencies: alpha, theta and delta when guided can show case a myriad of benefits including idea generation, creativity, cognitive functioning, and intellectual capacity. Meditation helps to transform these beneficial states of mind and help boost the IQ.
  4. Develops intuition and insights: These are generally obtained through listening and developing to the inner voice. Thus meditation forms to be the basic key to tap these latent abilities. The intelligence can be mapped through tests and quizzes and is valuable at each level to stimulate insights and creativity. As per some people, inner intelligence, is considered to be the most important and best success in the world. Successful people including Steve Jobs have stated that their super revolutionary ideas and business acumen came through their intuition.
  5. Meditation helps in improving both short and long term memory: The key memory areas hippocampus and frontal lobe show increase in activity during meditation. By stimulating these areas, the short and long term memories are improved.

Do People Really Suffer from Mood Disorders?

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Do People Really Suffer from Mood Disorders?

Do people really suffer from mood disorders?

Mood disorders are common psychological problems that affect a vast portion of the human populace all over the world every year. These occur when there is a shift or imbalance in a person's psyche which affects his or her daily function and interpersonal relations in varying degrees. Each individual is affected by these conditions in a different capacity and responds to them in a distinct manner.

Mood disorders generally manifest themselves as fluctuations in a person's temperament. It is triggered by various factors. These mental illnesses range from mild to severe, the latter requiring urgent psychological counseling and treatment. A mild condition may even develop into a painful and chronic one without any form of remedial intervention.

What are the most common types of mood disorders?

There are many distinctive categories of mood disorders that can affect a person. The most commonly occurring ones are as follows:

- major depressive disorder

- bipolar disorder

- dysthymia

- cyclothymia

- seasonal affective disorder (sad)

Major depression is the most frequently occurring type of mood disorder. It causes mental and emotional turmoil, as well as physical anguish. Those affected by it may experience a single episode in isolation or multiple episodes over a period of time. The milder version of this condition is known as dysthymia.

Bipolar disorder is a comparatively rare condition that causes alternating states of extreme mania and depression. It is also known as manic-depressive illness. The mild version of this is called cyclothymia.

Seasonal affective disorder or sad is a depressive disorder that is known to affect those living in colder climes. It is caused generally by the lack of warmth and light, the onset of which begins in late autumn and lasts till the end of winter.

What causes a mood disorder?

Mood disorders are very difficult to diagnose as they can be caused by an assortment of triggers and the symptoms are not always apparent. This is particularly true in the case of dysthymia and cyclothymia.

Some of the usual factors that lead to mood disorders are:

- chronic stress and anxiety

- anomalies in the functioning of the nervous system

- prolonged periods of isolation

- genetics

- childhood abuse and trauma

- ineffectual coping mechanisms

- insufficient nourishment/malnutrition

In most cases, a combination of multiple factors usually leads to the development of mood disorders and other mental illnesses.

Dear semen production started in your teenage like all other boys. Semen will go out of your body either in urine or in masturbation or in dreams, if you don't have a sexual partner. Nothing will happen to your body because of loss of semen. It will be produced again. And it will go on for life. You will not lose weight, nor you will become weak, not that is dangerous, if semen is lost. All these things may be happening to you because of depressive disorder. You are already taking sertraline tablets for it. Please go again to the psychiatrist and request him to put you on weight gaining antidepressant. You need talk therapy including sex education from a clinical psychologist. It may take many session. But it is worth since you will use your capacities to full extent, not idling at home.

You must meet with a counselor to deal with the regression you experience, especially when you are angry. This is an indication that there is a fixation with anger due to some unresolved childhood experience. When this is resolved you will experience a lot of relief even in areas that you do not know about as yet. All feelings must be expressed appropriately every time. The over thinking is a right brain function that you resort to when in distress.
