Hi lybrate-user, Different people have different perceptions about homeopathy and alopathy. Whatever line of treatment you chose, please stick to it for long and consistently for everything takes its own time. Full benefit of any treatment will come if you combine it with counseling intervention for it is through counseling only will you be able to learn new ways of behaving and being. Until you don't address the root cause of your emorions they will continue to trouble you. So seek help from a good therapist/ Counselor to find the list happiness. As far as diet is concerned- eating healthy foods such as green vegetables, proteins and exercising atleast for an hour daily will help you uplift your mood. You can choose any form of cardio from walking, swimming, playing a sport, yoga, dance. Do whatever you find joy in. All the best!

Dear lybrate user, I see that you are really concerned about your friend. I guess she is taking this medicine on her own, which can be harmful. She has got used to these tablets and hence she cannot sleep without taking these tablets. Please make her understand that the tablets might have some side effects which would harm her body. Also the tablets will give her symptomatic relief, and the root cause of depression would remain untreated. Please encourage her to seek help from a counsellor, who will help her to find out the root cause of her depression. The counsellor will also help her to modify her self defeating thoughts and behaviours. Once she is relieved of her negative thoughts and stress, she will be able to think rationally and will have better control on her habits.

There is, Both you and sister have 5 to 15 times more chances of suffering from BPD, compared with people with non-affected parents. But dont worry there are significant chances of not suffering too. Have a stress free happy life and make sure both of u get sleep for 8 hours a day

Dear Atul, If you are sure that you are hearing noises which others cannot hear, you may be suffering from hallucinations. Paranoid schizophrenia, paranoia, delusional disorders are related to this. Do consult a psychologist regarding your problem and proceed as advised. Take care.

Hi May be you are too stressed and under pressure. Manage your work and time properly. Give yourself some time. Deep breathing is a good way to control anger. Whenever you get angry, leave that place and take deep breaths. Find out the triggers for your anger.Daily go for walking and do some meditation. This will definitely help you.

Hello doctors, I have a question about relationship issue. My girlfriend who lives far from my country, does not chat with me anymore online, as I broke her feelings too rushy and too straight to speak about our future. My question is what should I do to get us back in line? Thank you.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Hello, I can understand long distant relationships are very hard and get very difficult during a bad phase where you have a fight. Communication is the key to this. If you feel you have done something wrong please express it to her and apologize, give her sometime to think about it don't try to rush her but at the same time don't be too laid back also. When you want to apologize since you live in a different country please do it over a phone call or Video call, chatting and messaging may not fully communicate the feelings. If you are going to visit then do it in person also. DON'T waste your time thinking what to do. Take action. Do your part apologize and take responsibility for your actions. All the best.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Dear pinky, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

Consult a psychiatrist and get your sleep disorder evlauated. It can be idiopathic insomnia, or secondary sleep disorder. Follow sleep hygienehe most important sleep hygiene measure is to maintain a regular wake and sleep pattern seven days a week. It is also important to spend an appropriate amount of time in bed, not too little, or too excessive. This may vary by individual; for example, if someone has a problem with daytime sleepiness, they should spend a minimum of eight hours in bed, if they have difficulty sleeping at night, they should limit themselves to 7 hours in bed in order to keep the sleep pattern consolidated. In addition, good sleep hygiene practices include: Avoid napping during the day. It can disturb the normal pattern of sleep and wakefulness. Avoid stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol too close to bedtime. While alcohol is well known to speed the onset of sleep, it disrupts sleep in the second half as the body begins to metabolize the alcohol, causing arousal. Exercise can promote good sleep. Vigorous exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. A relaxing exercise, like yoga, can be done before bed to help initiate a restful night's sleep. Food can be disruptive right before sleep. Stay away from large meals close to bedtime. Also dietary changes can cause sleep problems, if someone is struggling with a sleep problem, it's not a good time to start experimenting with spicy dishes. And, remember, chocolate has caffeine. Ensure adequate exposure to natural light. This is particularly important for older people who may not venture outside as frequently as children and adults. Light exposure helps maintain a healthy sleep-wake cycle. Establish a regular relaxing bedtime routine. Try to avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Don't dwell on, or bring your problems to bed. Associate your bed with sleep. It's not a good idea to use your bed to watch TV, listen to the radio, or read.

He is not feeling any kind of emotions and is never excited about something new. Not even he feels excited when he is back to his home, to his parents and nor when he is visiting some other country. Is that normal to behave on his part? He himself admits that he is feeling way too casual about all things. Could you please provide any solution to overcome this.

Its quite natural to feel frustrated due to your overall tragic condition. But let me assure you that the human mind has a great capacity to bounce back. You just have to become realistic and accept the present situation without any sense of denial. Go slow and have patience. Have courage to face the situation by having faith in yourself. Start with a positive thought and affirm yourself that you will one day be out of this situation. Keep your efforts to become active by moving as much as possible. Eat a wholesome diet with lots of vegetables and fruits which will help you feel fresh and energetic. You can also try Homeopathy which is safe and effective. You an contact me for a private consultation and further details. You can also avail discounts if financial problem is constraining you.

You may be under some stress from the last two years and have not dealt with it as yet. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory (of which you say you have no problem) is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.
