You need to get your friend evaluated as it could be depression, anxiety disorder or a personality problem. The treatment varies for all these conditions and once the evaluation is done we can start the treatment according to the requirement.

Oral Submucous Fibrosis is a precancerous condition. It is caused mainly due to the habit of chewing betelnut and tobacco.

In this condition, the mouth opening is reduced and the patient has burning sensation in mouth while consumption of spicy and hot foods.

Patients with Submucous fibrosis should quit the habit of betel nut and tobacco, should take an antioxidant rich diet. They should visit an Oral Medicine Specialist for its treatment so that cancer can be prevented.

You could be developing a serious problem if you continue to neglect this condition. Passivity is criminal and it is the devil's workshop to be idle. So get up and do regular exercises, sleep well and eat healthily. In the meantime, it is very important to visit a counselor and get some therapy done. You may get depressed and find it more difficult later. So immediately go and seek some professional help. It is possible that if you are on time that you could manage with counseling alone or else you may have to take medication also.

Smoking chodne k liye koi medicine le sakte hai kya ya aisa koi medicine hai jiska koi side effects na ho.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
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 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Do it for some days. Its a mere habit (of being with him), it will be replaced with another soon, life is flux, everything is an a process of change, nothing stops, e has moved on and so should you!

Sir, I am school student of 17 age. I am having a severe bipolar disorder. But I have not visited any doctor. I am a severe maladaptive daydreamer too. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You talk about this condition rather casually. It is very, very serious and the earlier it is resolved the better. Because you are young the prognosis is good. Apart from that this the last time you will get to sort it out in your teens. If done well now, you could save a lot of time, money, and pain. Meet with a doctor immediately. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

We cannot say anything about this level of consumption. Smoking is bad, period. If he is waiting for something to happen, then he is a reactive type. Once something happens healthwise, he will be too late and he will have to focus on cure. "whereas it is better for him to live on the preventive mode and quit smoking right now.

Relax dear lybrate user. You have to understand one basic thing. The ultimate target of love, of particularly your age group is sex. And, a healthy love must be a blend of both psychological and physical attachments to each other. Both kind of attraction and attachment is needed by both male and female. The problem here is, boys generally prefer sexual intimacy to psychological intimacy. In girls it is Vice versa. Moreover, love cant be got by forcing anybody. It should be spontaneous. Just think of a situation in which this break-up happens after marrying and having children? The pain will be tremendous. In this line of thinking, you are a lucky girl. Dont try to forget him. At the same time never beg him for love. If possible, try to keep in touch with him as good friends. Set apart time to think and talk about him to a good friend of you everyday. Other times learn something new or socialize as much as possible. Never be alone. By and by, the memories of him will start vanishing. Finally, it seems to me that yours is not of a healthy love. It is like drug dependence such as smoking, alcohol etc., which can be UNLEARNED by replacing it with other healthy habits, possibly by getting married. I hope you would understand.

8 Tips to Deal With Depression In Young Adults!

8 Tips to Deal With Depression In Young Adults!

Is your teenager child suffering from depression?? Young adults or teenagers are quite moody. Hormonal fluctuations leads to irritability, outburst of anger, defiant behavior, weepiness, and emotional hysteria. It is important for you to differentiate between depression, teenage drama, and other mood disorders that are likely during teenage days. Depression in your child from an early age can have serious effects late in life.

Hence, it is very important for you to deal with your teenager’s depression. Here are some important tips you should apply:

  1. Get proper diagnosis
    • A proper and accurate diagnosis of your child’s depression is very important.
    • It is the first step that you should take to be certain about the condition.
  2. Choose the right therapist or doctor
    • Finding a good therapist or doctor is the second step you need to take.
    • Take opinions of people, and explore well to come across an ideal therapist who would be perfect for dealing with your depressed teenager.
    • You may need a doctor’s assistance and advice for a long term basis, and thus it is important to choose a trustworthy doctor.
  3. Observe the negative thoughts
    • Several negative thoughts manipulate our feelings. Something that starts with a negative thought can become a source of depression and anxiety.
    • However, by recognizing these thoughts, it becomes easier to cope with them and their consequences.
  4. Outsmart the brain
    • Our brain has two sides that respond to different kinds of inputs.
    • While a negative situation confronts us, the right brain circuits come into play; while in case of positive situations, the left brain responds.
    • It is important to create a bridge across the brain, so that you can travel to both the sides.
  5. Take mood boosters
    • There are certain food items that help in uplifting your mood.
    • If you are a depressed teenager, you should consume foods containing omega-3 fatty acids which are beneficial for alleviating your depression.
    • You should take foods such as salmon, sardines, ground flaxseeds and walnuts.
    • You should also consume vitamin B12 and Folate as these produce serotonin and act as effective mood stabilizers.
  6. Quit alcohol
    • Alcohol is harmful when you are depressed and anxious, and it also alters your brain while you are a teenager. This can have adverse effects later in life.
  7. Workout
    • Working out for uplifiting your mood and distress by swimming, running, boxing, or walking provides instant relief from depression.
    • Exercises boosts the activity of serotonin and norepinehrine.
    • It also helps in stimulation of the brain chemicals that encourage the growth of nerve cells.

As a teenager suffering from depression, it is very important for you to seek help from places and people your trust. You may approach a person outside of your family as well, if you are not comfortable with letting your parents know.

I am a female of 27 years I am emotionally imbalance. Mai bahut jaldi gas ho jati hu. Bahut jaldi udas ho jati hu. Emotionally bahut jyada week hu. I want to be normal how this is possible?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have to meditation and yoga and control anxiety .Suffering unwanted anxiety is very much prevalent nowadays! It is common complaint that" I Suffer from anxiety. Please help me" Anxiety is a very normal emotion, which gives rise to feelings of nervousness every now and then. An anxiety disorder is a serious medical condition in which people experience a high degree of distress and mental trauma, which hinders a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the cardinal symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder. 1. Troublesome & Excess worry - This condition prevails if you worry about the day to day activities too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very common and routine things, related to life or work which tends to affect you in an adverse way. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue. 2. Lack of Sleep/irregular, disturbed sleep - Problems in falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining an uninterrupted sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder. 3. Baseless / Irrational fears - This symptom is not generalized; instead, it is specific and subjective in relation to a particular thing or situation. The fears that are experienced under this category are sudden and unexpected in nature and there is no fixed rationale behind these fears. One may ear of death or accident or fall from a plane and so on. 4. Muscle pain - Muscle discomfort and pain is one of the leading physiological causes of an anxiety disorder. The pain felt is chronic and pervasive, and is very common among people facing situations of anxiety. If you are exposed to constant periods of anxiety, you will experience fatigue, muscle pains and lethargy or unwillingness to work. 5. Unexplained indigestion - Problems related to the digestive system are also a sign of anxiety disorder. In this case, you may face constant digestive problems accompanied by a common disorder called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS refers to an anxiety situation in the digestive tract, which is characterized by sudden urge to defecate on eating, stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhoea. Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviours, self- doubt, and such others. Symptoms vary depending on the type of anxiety disorder, but general symptoms include: • Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness. • Problems sleeping. • Cold or sweaty hands and/or feet. • Shortness of breath. • Heart palpitations. • An inability to be still and calm. • Dry mouth. • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet. Anxiety is a normal, predictable part of life. However, people with an anxiety disorder are essentially phobic about anxiety feeling. And they’ll go to any lengths to avoid it. Some people experience generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), excessive anxiety about real-life concerns, such as money, relationships, health and academics, Others struggle with social anxiety, and worry about being evaluated or embarrassing themselves. People with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) might become preoccupied with symmetry or potential contamination. The bottom line is that people can experience anxiety, and anxiety disorders, related to just about anything. Most of these steps contribute to a healthy and fulfilling life, overall. To sum up, making some basic lifestyle changes can do wonders for someone coping with elevated anxiety. Take these steps from today. 1. Take a deep breath. Deep diaphragmatic breathing triggers our relaxation response, switching from our fight-or-flight response of the sympathetic nervous system, to the relaxed, balanced response of our parasympathetic nervous system, according to, clinical psychologists, who have suggested the following exercise, which you can repeat several times: #Inhale slowly to a count of four, starting at your belly and then moving into your chest. Gently hold your breath for four counts. Then slowly exhale to four counts. 2 Be active. One of the most important things one can do to cope with anxiety] is to get regular cardiovascular exercise,” For instance, a brisk 30- to 60-minute walk “releases endorphins that lead to a reduction in anxiety.” You can start today by taking a walk. Or create a list of physical activities that you enjoy, and put them on your schedule for the week. Other options include: running, rowing, rollerblading, hiking, biking, dancing, swimming, surfing, step aerobics, kickboxing and sports such as soccer, tennis and basketball, in short just anything you can do to be physically active 3. Sleep well. Not getting enough sleep can trigger anxiety. If you’re having trouble sleeping, tonight, engage in a relaxing activity before bedtime, such as taking a warm bath, listening to soothing music or taking several deep breaths and meditation is excellent .If you’re like many people with anxiety whose brains start buzzing right before bed, jot down your worries earlier in the day for 10 to 15 minutes, or try a mental exercise like thinking of fruits with the same letter. 4. Fight an anxious thought. We all have moments wherein we unintentionally increase or maintain our own worry by thinking unhelpful thoughts. These thoughts are often unrealistic, inaccurate, or, to some extent, unreasonable. Thankfully, we can change these thoughts. The first step is to identify them. Consider how a specific thought affects your feelings and behaviours. Is it helpful or unhelpful? These are the types of thoughts you want to challenge. Therefore it is suggested asking yourself: “Is this worry real?” “Is this going to happen?” “If the worst possible outcome happens, what would be so bad about that?” “Could I handle that?” “What might I do?” “If something bad happens, what might that mean to me?” “Is this really true or does it just seem so. Then, reframe or correct that thought to make it more accurate, realistic and more adaptive. For example: “I would feel embarrassed if I tripped on the stage, but that’s just a feeling; and it won't last forever, and I would get through it.” 5. Say an encouraging statement. Positive, accurate statements can help to put things into perspective. See these examples: “Anxiety is just a feeling, like any other feeling.” and “This feels bad, but I can use some strategies to cope with it.” 6. Stay connected to others. Social support is vital to managing stress, Today, call a loved one, schedule to go to lunch with a close friend. Talking with others can do a world of good. Another option is to get together and engage in an activity that improves your anxiety, such as taking a walk, sitting on the beach or going to a yoga class. 7. Avoid Alcohol and caffeine. Managing anxiety is as much about what you do as what you don’t do. And there are some substances that exacerbate anxiety. Caffeine/alcohol is one of those substances. The last thing people with anxiety need is a substance that makes them feel more turned on, which is exactly what caffeine/alcohol does. 8. Avoid mood changing drugs. “While drugs and alcohol might help to reduce anxiety in the short term, they often do just the opposite in the long term,” Even the short-term effect can be harmful. Experts have treated countless clients whose first panic attack occurred while they were taking drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy or LSD. “Panic attacks are bad enough if you are straight and sober, so imagine how bad they are if you are high, and can’t get untied until the drug wears off.” 9. Do something you enjoy. Engaging in enjoyable activities helps to soothe your anxiety. For instance, today, you might take a walk, listen to music or read a book, 10. Take a break. It’s also helpful to build breaks into your day. As it is said, this might be a “simple change of pace or scenery, enjoying a hobby, or switching ‘to-do’ tasks.” “Breaking from concerted effort can be refreshing.” 11. Solve Problem It is suggested considering how you can address the stressors that are causing your anxiety. Today, make a list of these stressors and next to each one, jot down one or two solutions.

Hey doc, I am a very cheerful person on the outside or I should say that I pretend to be happy in front of my family and friends but somewhere inside I am really disturbed. I feel really insecure in relationships. I am afraid of losing people whom i love. Therefore I don't express much about my feelings to them. I don't want to lose someone I love and thus that keeps me away from them. I am seeking your help and would be grateful if you revert to the same .

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are two harmful things you are doing that have no reasonable basis to be taken as facts: one, with the fear of losing them, you are not expressing your feelings; and secondly, you are afraid of their loss for no apparent reason. Now expressing feelings, you may be surprised actually brings people closer, and improves intimacy. It is not the feeling per se that is the problem but it is the way we express them ? you just have to be appropriate in the expression. The other fact is that people will not leave without a reason! What reason do you have that will make people abandon you just like that? Perhaps you think that you are not good enough for them to want to stay with you for long. Depending on how long you have lived with them, they would have already left you, if there was any concern about this. Talk to them about this and see what they have to say. I am absolutely sure that they will be shocked that you are entertaining such false thoughts. They may then give you sureties and loving assurance about how much they love you and that they will never ever do such a thing. Then you owe me a treat, and I so look forward to that.

The Stress-Sex Connection

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda

The Stress-Sex Connection

Stress can take a toll on your health in more ways than one and your sexual health is greatly and adversely impacted by stress. Stress can take a toll on the emotional relationship you share with your partner and also your own physical health, thus resulting in a hampered sex life.

Stress and Our Libido:

By now, we know that hormones affect our bodies in numerous ways from childhood to adolescence, pregnancy, menopause and beyond. Cortisol is one of the hormones produced by stress, and you might have heard of it if you’ve ever seen those late night diet pill commercials with the image of the pixelated woman gaining weight in her abdomen. Our bodies need this hormone, but in small doses for short bursts of time. If elevated levels of Cortisol are being produced for a prolonged period of time, they suppress our sex hormones. Lower quantity of sex hormones equals lower libido.

Impact of Stress on Sex-

  1. Stress takes a toll on libido.
  2. Low levels of libido imply lesser secretion of sex hormones, thus, affecting your sex life.
  3. Stress can interfere with your fertility, ovulation and sperm count.
  4. Stress can cause a shift in the hormones. In women, the change in hormones manifests in the form of an irregular ovulatory cycle.
  5. Loss of intimacy.
  6. Being under stress constantly can lead to anger, emotional outbursts, depression and loss of intimacy with your partner; thus affecting your sexual relations.
  7. Stress also affects your body image negatively, thus leading to unpleasant and bad sex.

How to rejuvenate your sex life?

Ayurvedic medicines help to overcome the stress related conditions without any side effects. Some herbs proved to be helpful in relieving stress & increasing libido like Ashwagandha,
safed musali, Shatavari, Manaskalp capsule, Ozaup  capsule. These are beneficial in all stress-related sexual problems. Other tips are:

  1. Communicate your feelings: Many-a-times, communicating and sharing your feelings, desires and anxiety with your partner might be all that you need to rejuvenate your sex life.
  2. Regular exercise and proper sleep: 20-30 minutes of body work out or a session of yoga everyday helps you to de-stress. A proper eight-hour sleep cycle will also go a long way in de-stressing you.
  3. Supplements to boost your libido and energy: Taking multivitamins, minerals, zinc and other supplements helps to boost your energy levels and libido, thus allowing you to enjoy your sex life to the fullest.
  4. Set the mood correctly: Set the right mood before your intimate sessions; with some soothing music, aromatic fragrance and dim lights. This can and will enhance your sex life by promoting relaxation, happiness and overall emotional well being. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.
