I am 31 year old male. From last one year I may be suffering from depression. I talk very less, doesn't meet anyone even my friends. In fact I am not enjoying anything. It is because of my marriage which is never been smooth. My wife's behaviour was very weird towards me. If I try to get her close she behaves in such a way that I am a stranger. I got married her in April 2015 but we hardly stay 30 days together. She never responding any of my question or even I tried to talk her she got violent. I wanted divorce from her but she doesn't want. She also not living with me. How can I focus on other things and I just want to forget her. please advise me.

I am 23 years old male and I got horrible dreams since last 6 months. What should i do?
You will need to look back 6 months ago and see what might have triggered this response. Then, if you deal with that, you will probably stop these bad dreams. You may meet with a dream analyst and help you decipher the meaning and implication of these dreams to help you use it productively. Apart from that you must make sure that you diet does not include foods that increase the fermentation that cause flatulence. This may also come from a lot of stress, for whatever reason, and a counselor will help you discover that and deal with it. You could also sleep on your left ear and change these dreams to cheerful ones.

How to prevent my stress? And how to growth my body? Daily routine main kya kare? Kya food khaye?
You can enrich your life by adding these habits to your life - 1. Exercise regularly - starting a regular exercise regimen can help you in getting fit. Apart from the physical benefits, exercise helps release endorphins in the body which are also known as the feel-good hormone as they make you happier. 2. Eat a healthy breakfast - the breakfast is the first meal of the day, so eating a nutritious breakfast that contains a healthy balance of carbohydrates, protein and fiber will keep you satiated and provide energy. Eating breakfast also helps to curb binge eating which may promote weight gain. 3. Stop smoking - smoking can cause damage to the cardiovascular system in the body which can lead to increased chances of blood pressure problems. 4. Take the stairs - using the stairs instead of the elevator burns more calories and also increases your aerobic fitness. 5. Avoid the phone before bedtime - if you use your phone before you go to sleep, then it can harm your quality of sleep. The light of the phone screen contains certain wavelengths which disrupt the hormone melatonin that is responsible for regulating sleep. 6. Meditate regularly - meditating on a regular basis reduces stress, enhances your concentration and promotes overall wellbeing. 7. Avoid processed foods - eating natural foods such as fruits and vegetables reduces chances of gaining weight and getting affected by disorders of the digestive system. It also helps in improving the health of your skin.

Hello- these symptoms are associated with irregular digestion as pitta dosha after meals moves toward the heart and thus causes anxiety and palpitation. There is no role of anti-depressants and psychotic medication in this as they provide symptomatic relief but worsens the conditions during next episode, they also have ill effects on your central nervous system by making it slow. Use these safe ayurvedic medicines- a) prabhakar vati 1 tab twice daily after meals. B) pitta shekhar ras 1 tab twice daily. C) manas mitra vatakam 1 tab use sos.

Masturbation does not directly cause anxiety or depression. However, if you think that it is wrong and feel guilty about it, this can secondarily produce these symptoms. Take care!

Relax and focus on self, let people talk whatever they want.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.

Hello lybrate-user, Post partum blues are common. During that depressive phase, you feel everything has vanished. You also feel that your husband has changed. He has to change, because he is not only a lover or a husband, but also a father. Post partum blues are common in fathers also. Please consult a psychiatrist or ask your obstetrician to refer. It is a completely treatable disorder with antidepressant tablets and counselling for hormonal changes and responsibilities of mother.

Hello David you have nicely wrote that if your exam phobia goes your interest in studies may also go. Well it is true but in correct sense if exam phobia goes then actually you won't take your exams seriously, which can worsen your performance. There will be always tension for any exam and it can't be erased. But our job is to make it not go out of bounds.Well my advice to you is plan early for exam, Reading daily, Revise topics regularly which is very important. Take adequate breaks, take notes, use sticks notes, eat healthy, sleep well, avoid bad habits and enjoy your time with family and friends.

Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.
