Dear lybrate user. Loosing someone or something very dear to you may cause grief and as per some studies grief may last even for longer times like 2 years. These studies have found that the void created by the loss may sometimes be found for as long as 2 years and intermittently you may fell lonely whenever you have the memories of that person. But if those periods are causing you severe impairments as to not allowing you to work with full efficiency or causing decreased social interactions as in your case, you may require help from a psychiatrist. Kindly get help and get your full assessment done so as to decide the further line of management. Take care.

Hi. First, learn to relax your mind! Taking unnecessary tension will stop your brain from functioning normally and it would never ever give you solution to your problem! Homoeopathic medicines are very effective for increasing concentration and if done with yoga, will give you great results! But practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Shashankasana: Sit in Vajrasana with hands on the thighs. The upper body is straight and relaxed. Inhaling raise both arms above the head. Exhaling keep the back straight and bend upper body and arms forward from the hips, until arms and forehead touch the floor. The buttocks remain on the heels. Breathing normally remain in this position for a while. Relax the whole body, especially the shoulders, neck and back. Inhaling keep the back straight and raise the upper body and arms. Exhaling return to the starting position. Practice the exercise 3 times in total. Remain bending forward for sometime and consciously perceive the movement of the breath on the spine. 2. Virasana: Sit in Vajrasana. Hands rest on the thighs and the body is relaxed. Bring the left foot beside the right knee with the sole of the foot flat on the floor. Place the left elbow on the left knee and rest the chin in the hand. Right hand rests on the right thigh. Tuck the toes of the right foot under. The right knee remains in contact with the floor. Transfer the weight onto the right heel. Concentrate on a fixed point in front. Breathing normally remain in this position for as long as comfortable. Return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side. 3. Sit in Vajrasana. Body is straight and hands rest on the thighs. Relax the whole body. Inhaling stretch the arms above the head, then bring them behind the back and grasp the left wrist with the right hand. Exhaling bend the body forward from the hips, keeping the back straight, until the forehead touches the floor. The buttocks remain on the heels. Breathing normally concentrate on the whole body and relax. Remain in this position for as long as comfortable. Inhaling slowly bring the body upright. At the same time stretch the arms above the head. Exhaling return to the starting position. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Hi, can depression, nervousness,tension b the cause f weight loss? If yes, then in what sense? Sm advise fr this? Thanx.
Hello lybrate user, yes there are many reasons for weight loss. 1. Depression depression has a number of symptoms. However, some people do not recognize that they have depression. They may feel low and not right but cannot say why. They may even think of it as just normal for them. Many people with depression can hide their true feelings from friends and family. Weight loss may develop due to not eating much. It is sometimes friends or family who may actually notice that a person has lost weight and it then turns out to be due to depression. 2. Dementia people in the early stages of dementia may appear to get by reasonably well but, in fact, they are not able to look after themselves very well. They may have a poor diet but appear happy in themselves. Again, it is sometimes friends or family who may first notice that a person is not right and has lost weight and it then turns out to be the early stages of dementia. Nervousness is not the reason for weight loss. Kindly consult any pediatrician or counsellor.

Hello dr I am from india. I am suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) for the past 22 years. I want to know the latest findings about the illness and treatments available. Also let me know where we currently stands in developing a gene therapy to cure ocd.

Mental health diseases cant be cured by medicines alone and that is the biggest mistake you did in last 22 years. Medicines can only treat. This is all stress and worries of life. You may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.

How To Deal With Anxiety?

How To Deal With Anxiety?

Living with anxiety on a daily basis can be really stressful. And while you are dealing with anxiety, it is very important not to sway away with the symptoms and commit yourself to a treatment. For instant release of anxiety, you really don't need to go for a vacation or to the spa or a weekend retreat. It is easy to beat anxiety within 5-15 minutes, just being where you are.

So don't think and instantly reduce your anxiety to give yourself a wonderful day. Here are 5 ways to reduce your anxiety immediately.

  1. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. As per a research, doing meditation daily changes the neural pathways of the brain, thereby making it more flexible towards stress. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  2. Deep Breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth. Psychologists state that deep breathing helps to bring down stress and anxiety by lowering the blood pressure.
  3. Laugh Aloud: A good laugh is a great way to shed off the stress and anxiety. When you laugh, chemical endorphins are released which elevate your mood. A good laugh also lowers the cortisol levels which are the stress hormone.
  4. Talk to someone: Distracting yourself by talking to friends and family helps. The mind starts wandering when in anxiety and alone and the effective technique to talk to some trusted person helps. The support you get from family and friends just boosts you back and wards you off the symptoms. In case of a panic attack, you can request the company of a friend and relative to watch over you.
  5. Trick your anxious thoughts: Anxiety does not happen suddenly but is due to the mind's tendency to have negative thoughts spiraling day in and day out and the worse is that you have no control over the thoughts. Learn to tame these thoughts and the triggers which cause these to keep anxiety at bay.

There are strategies which you can try to help you keep anxious thoughts away.

1. Question yourself when you experience anxiety. A long checklist helps you make your thoughts more realistic.
2. Give affirmations to yourself that everything is okay, you will get over the situation. Usually, affirmations are made to comfort one.
3. Know the physical symptoms as many times physical sensations like in case of a panic attack tend to trigger anxiety and stress. When you get used to the symptoms, the mind does not send signals for anxiety to the brain. Create exercise to habituate yourself to a panic attack. There is no cure for anxiety but the fastest way to get your anxiety under control is to simply manage it. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

I got a bad habit of chewing gutkha and tobacco since last 10 long years I really want to get escape from this kindly suggest what should I do?

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Chewing tobacco addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

You must immediately take him to a counselor because he is manifesting clear behavior of someone who is really very angry, and if you do not handle him well you may cause more problems. There is an unresolved issue from childhood which has surfaced just now and is looking for a resolution. You as parents may be aware of the event that might have caused this disturbance to surface now. Pleas accompany him to the counselor. Your role ass parents may have just been completed and he will need a good friend in you.

You do not deserve an unfaithful girl. So it is actually good riddance. If she has been unfaithful due to any contribution from you then you must look into that and take care of that adequately. You must also realise that if this had happened when you were married to her, it could be quite intolerable. So thank your good stars and move on fast. If it is too much, you must go and meet with a counselor immediately. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

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. If these tips do not help you, you can meet a sexologist and he will guide you more specifically.

Dear Mr Sachin....as you have stated your problem i would advise you to join gymn instantly and do weight training exercises for your pectoralis major muscle....also you could do push-ups at home....you can also do cardio exercise like running, swimming, skipping....the main reason behind your problem is accumulation of fat in your breast....so you have to burn the fat and pump the underlying pectoralis muscle of your chest.....also take care of your diet and avoid fatty foods.......at the same time conduct a blood test to know your Testosterone level....revert back after your blood test

My dad been treated with alcoholism and depression since last one year. he was taking Stablon 12.5,baclofen 10 ,amizep h 12.5, three times and stresnil 0.5 at night. He was good after 3 months. He was reading books. But most of the time he liked sitting and walking. He developed swelling in legs. He started to complain about pain in hands and legs. Also used to say his mind is not working well. After 6 more months he started reducing his daily doses thinking it may help. I ensured he takes at least 2 weeks to reduce any dose. Then after 2 more months he was confused. Standing for hour or sitting in washroom for hour. Wanted to go outside in midnight. Even if he just came from outside he will again like to go outside. We admitted him to psychiatrist, he was given Etizola plus 5, deven la 50 mg, baclofen 20 mg extended release, monotop 50 mg, genecephal trio in morning and excite plus, desvenlafaxine 100 mg, oliza 5, monotop 50 and felicita tab in night. after 3 months he improved in terms of going out. He go out look around himself and come back. And told us there is no one around him now. When asked he told he was seeing 5 ghost like faces earlier. Before this treatment he used to walk very fast like flying. But after this treatment he got slow. After few more days he again started to go outside. So now we went to a neurologist. He prescribed risperidone 2 mg, trihexyphenidyl 2 mg, lorazepam 2 mg, citicoline 500 mg. It really helped him. He was calm now. He started to respond faster than earlier. Memory improved. But issues still not fixed are - 1. He walk and sit like statue, not able to lift legs too much above ground. And walk straight. 2. Less control while walking specially while coming down from stairs. 3.will fall while sitting on ground and standing from ground. 4. Teary eyes as he don't blink eyes much. 5.face looks swelled. 6. Remember many things accurately but don't remember many things like his birthday. However he may remember something now but may forget when asked after few days. 7. Response is better but still slow when asked something.

Hi, I would suggest you to meet the neurologist and ask about the side effects of these medicines. Secondly if the neurologist permits then take help of a physiotherapist. Thirdly give him some memory booster activities like puzzle book or show him many different things for one minute then hide those things. Now tell him to write the name of those things. Take him to some social club. The side effects of medicines might have affected his memory and gait. please do not reduce and medicine without doctor's advice.
