How can i make sombody stop smoking and drinking how can i get him out of this habit plz help there should be some medications by which i get rid of this harmful habits

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some medicines that help with smoking cessation. But with the drinking the medication involves your son?s full knowledge and cooperation. You may consult a psychiatrist regarding this. Now making him stop, is a very difficult and near impossible task. Even if it appears that you have succeeded, I can guarantee it will end up a failure: his willingness is paramount to his recovery. What you can do is to make it difficult for him to smoke and drink; and do not give him the money to indulge in the habits. This will put him under pressure to want to quit. A counselor will also help him realize and help him to want to give it up. There are some rehabilitation centers who will take him by force and treat him through what is known as ?cold turkey: this is a treatment which is done without the use of medications and he is made to suffer the withdrawal symptoms hoping that the discomfort will be so severe that it will act as a deterrent in the future. Of course he is carefully monitored but its success is suspect and claims are rather dubious. However, it is still worth the try. I always suggest that everything possible must be thrown into the ring. If I am not wrong, this suggestion may have pulled some heart strings in you! If so, this is another reason why parents will not succeed easily because you may feel sorry for him and prevent him having what is really required for his recovery. You then become enablers to the disease. So make a firm decision and act in the guise of ?tough love? to do the right thing for him, however, uncomfortable it is for you or him. Focus on the results and not the process.

I lost somebody who was very close to me, I feel very depressed. Please help me to forget that person.
Losing someone close is definitely a painful process and it takes time one to recover from it. It is important for you to distract yourself and engage yourself in activities that can help you manage you depressive thinking and which you find meaningful and enjoyable to work. Also, I would like you to say to consult a psychologist who will understand in detail your problem and helps you to overcome depression.

Hello, I am vedika 18 years. I just want to improve my concentration and sitting capacity to study. I usually study for 1 to 2 hrs. After that I get bored then I just keeps my books away so please suggest something. That increase my concentration.

Psychologist, Mumbai
Hi , Do'nt worry short term intervals are good for your studies. For improving your concentration at first you have to eliminate all the distractions from your study room. Try to take one task at a time. Our attention is limited, when you try to do several things at one time, then you necessarily have to divide your attention. Try to focus on the task at hand, if you are reading a book ask yourself how would you summarize it, and then try to recall it. Meditation is also helpful for improving your concentration. Thanks.

Actually I'm face a lot of mentally problem regarding my career, and get depress. How I solve it?
Dear lybrate user. There is no need to get depressed about your future and career. You have to concentrate on your present, study and perform well today. Do everything perfectly today and stop worrying about tomorrow. Automatically you will do well in your future and get good career. At the same time, if you worry about your future, you will not be able to perform today. That means your future will be spoiled automatically. Hope you can understand. You need counseling. Take care.

Frozen Shoulder- Ayurvedic Treatment

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

Frozen Shoulder- Ayurvedic Treatment

A Frozen shoulder is a shoulder joint with significant loss of its range of motion in all directions, especially when we turn the arm upwards and away from the body. It is also known as Adhesive Capsulitis. According to ayurveda it is known as Avabahuk and it is caused by vitiated vata dosha. Due to faulty dietary habits and life style vata dosha is vitiated and it travels throughout the whole body. Where it finds the blockage of channels it accumulates there and in avbahuk the channels of the shoulder joint get blocked and it causes accumulation of vata dosha there. Vata dosha causes symptoms like pain, pricking sensation, stiffness and difficulty in movements.

Causes of Frozen Shoulder 

  1. Inflammation, scarring, thickening and shrinkage of the capsule surrounding shoulder joint.
  2.  Injury to the shoulder joint
  3. Tendinitis, bursitis and rotator cuff injury

Prevalence of Frozen Shoulder

It is more prevalent in patients of Diabetes and chronic inflammatory arthritis of shoulder joint, after chest or breast surgery. Long-term immobility of the shoulder joint can put the people at risk to develop frozen shoulder.

Management of Frozen Shoulder

1) Sukhayurveda Detox and Purification therapy

We at Sukhayurveda concentrate on treating the root cause of the disease. Frozen shoulder is mainly a disease of vata dosha and first of all we give the therapy to pacify vata dosha. Our detox therapy includes abhyangam, Oil Bath i.e. Pizichil and Herbal Bun Massage medicated enema and nasayam i.e. nasal insufflations in case of frozen shoulder. These therapies vary from person to person according to their constitution and disease causing factors. This gives a lot of relaxation to muscles surrounding shoulder joint.

The above mentioned drugs should be taken only after consulting a Qualified Ayurvedic Physician. We at Sukhayurveda provide various formulations of all these and many more herbs.

Some people find it difficult to see blood and the sight of blood induces some kind of emotional distress in them. In your case after seeing blood you fainted, so in a way, it is your body's defence mechanism that has worked for you to save you from that emotional distress after seeing blood. This is not a very serious matter. But in life, you will have situations where you might have to see blood and act courageously. Hence, to get rid of this sort of blood phobia you can talk to a counsellor who by using different therapies will help you to manage your fear of blood.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. I presume you are a student. At adolescent and young adult development period, many sort of role confusions, conflicts etc are common because you have to overcome these hurdles so as to achieve things. Setbacks are normal. You have to learn. Understand circumstances and failures, leap back and get onto the path with renewed vigor, failure is stopping stone towards success. I suggest counselling. Take care.

I have adjusting problem and do not how to control my anger. I lost many jobs due to anger. I become angry when someone cheats. I am doing exercises and yoga. But still I can not control anger.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Follow these anger management tips 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of, "You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

This is in furterance to my earlier query regarding speech problem. Root canal was done on lower right side molar and premolar. It was done in last year June. But other dentist neurologists here did not agree with the anesthesia effect. It is almost 10 months. Any medication or exercise for it.

hypoglossal nerve injury can be diagnosed easily, but who is performing that nerve testing matters. RCT might be just a coincidence after which problem starts or can be a trumatic needle injury during root canal procedure which is very rare to damage hypoglossal nerve but chances are and hence can not be ignored. Now if 10 months has been elapsed for mri also you can get it done again for any visible changes related to your problem. After reports you can connect with us if required. THANK YOU.

Dear Bikas, Welcome to lybrate. At your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.
