Hello doctor, I am 42 year old man and I have drinking problem since last 7 months. What should i do to quit please help me.

Psychologist, Calicut
Firstly try to understand yourself" why you drink? and" why you want to quit drinking? no-one can help if you do not actually want to stop. There are various treatments available to help people to stop drinking. The most important of these is the psychological counselling help available. However, there are also important medical treatments available to help you to stop drinking in the first place, and then to help you to stop drinking in the longer term. There are various medicines available to help you to stop drinking in the longer term. You should consult a doctor for the medication advice. Another way is to engage yourself to a period of residential rehabilitation which is another effective way to learn the skills to stop drinking and stay stopped. This involves a period of weeks or months living with others who are learning how to stop drinking for good. It is an intensive form of treatment, but has excellent outcomes for those who are truly committed to stop drinking.

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 causes difficulties in leading a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder. 1. Excessive worry - This condition persists if you worry about the day to day activities a bit too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very petty things, which tends to affect you in an adverse manner. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue. 2. Sleep problems - Problems falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining a sound sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder. 3. 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. 4. Muscle tension - 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 unwillingness to work. 5. Chronic 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 stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhea. Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self- doubt, and such others. But id you have serious problem you may see a psychiatrist and discuss.

General Physician,

This is age related and due to separation from son. You understand that this is normal part of life in all persons and you spend time by reading, books and music, meditaion and yoga. Your menopause also may add to depression. Move with your age group people around your area and find time for some social work. Be positive in life. You can discuss itha gynecologist if you need hormone replacement for depression from menopause.

Hello lybrate-user, more than the foods, performing meditation and yoga will help you better. You can however eat walnuts as they are proven to have lot of benefits on brain development and maintenance. Besides, you must eat all fruits and vegetables. Every food stuff have some benefits of their own and are helpful to you and your body in some way or other.

Masturbation is a problem due to the addiction aspect of it but not the infertility part. The infertility is not the concern anyway with both of your addictions, it is the addiction itself that indicates a very vulnerable personality. Does your wife to be and her family know about the marijuana addiction at all? this is also of big concern. You must tell them and hold up this marriage until you have resolved both the addictions. This is very unfair and deceptive to keep them in the dark. Apart from that, there is concern about the driving factors that have led you to this extent of addiction. For the infertility, you must visit a doctor (sexologist) and check out through an infertility test whether that is of serious concern. In all this, you must act in a responsible manner but being os an addictive person you may not take these measures and certainly not in the right spirit. But to do fair justice to this marriage, everything must be above board and in the open. In spite od this, if the family is willing for you to go through the marriage, then that is a different matter. Personally, I do not support you're going through with this under these circumstances.

Hello, Homoeopathic medicines are less invasive and have more herbal approach towards gaining the weight. There are a number of homoeopathic medicines, which treat the root cause behind the body’s inability to gain weight or bulk up. 1. Take alfalfa tonic (wsi), 2 – 2 tsp. Thrice a day, half an hour before meals. 2. Calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, once in aweek, morning empty stomach for 2 weeks. 3. Take eggs, milk, butter, bananas, potatoes, mangoes, figs, oats, soyabean and dry fruits. 4. Do light exercises regularly to keep your body active. These homoeopathic medicines and dietary addition will increase your appetite and give your metabolism a healthy boost.

Ways to Cope with Grief and Loss

Ways to Cope with Grief and Loss

Every person faces ups and downs in life, the difference lies in how we deal with the low points of our life. Losing someone you love is probably the saddest experience anyone can go through. Our natural reaction to such a loss is grief. The more significant the loss; the more intense your grief will be. There is no right or wrong way to grieve and everyone grieves in a different way.

However, here are a few healthy ways you can cope with your loss to move on with your life.

1. Build a support system: When you are grieving, you may feel that nobody understands how you feel and would want to isolate yourself. Do not allow yourself to withdraw into a shell and instead build a support system of friends and family who you trust. You could also visit a counselor who is trained to deal with such situations. Joining a support group can also help.

2. Face your grief: Not allowing yourself to grieve can do more harm than good. You can suppress your grief for a short time but you cannot avoid it forever. The longer you avoid facing it, the more difficult it will be. Suppressing grief can also lead to a number of health problems such as depression, substance abuse and anxiety.

3. Look after your health: When grieving for the loss of a loved one, you may not feel hungry and may want to simply lie in bed all day. But you must instead get out, eat right and exercise regularly. When the body is healthy, you not only feel better physically but also emotionally. Avoid turning to alcohol and drugs to lift your mood.

4. Express yourself: Bottling up your emotions is never a good idea. However, sometimes talking about how you feel can be difficult. In such situations, look for alternate means of expressing yourself. For examples, you could try painting or start a scrapbook.

5. Look out for grief triggers: What makes coping with the loss of a loved one difficult is the fact that you share a number of life events with them. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and festive occasions can bring back memories of the person and overwhelm you. To successfully heal, you must plan ahead for events like this that will trigger grief. Do not allow yourself to be alone at such times.

6. Seek professional help: Sometimes, when you are dealing with the loss of a loved one, you find yourself sinking into depression or find it difficult to resume your normal lifestyle. It is a good idea to consult a mental health practitioner or counselor.

I have been drinking alcohol since 20 Years regularly, And suddenly I stopped drinking. Is there will be any withdrawal effect on my body ? Does it harmful? Does it life threatening ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It depends because some people react badly and some don't. If you have had no problems so far, no worry. If in case you experience any difficulties of any kind, just visit a doctor and he can treat it immediately with some medication. He will also tell you whether is a withdrawal reaction to alcohol or not. These reactions are hardly ever life-threatening.

Hi I just failed in my part 2 exam, I am really distorted and disappointed,Please help me.I am in depression
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Plan ahead - write down things what you want to accomplish. Eat a good breakfast meditate- enhances certain brain functions linked to attention. Do smaller tasks - split up projects into individual tasks so they're easier to accomplish. Reward yourself take little breaks.

I smoke cannabis (ganja) for first time on 24 September. Till now I am affecting by it.In previous two days suddenly I had in a dream. When will I get relief from it & how?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your constitution is obviously not made to tolerate cannabis very well. It is also likely that the substance has provoked some underlying or buried issues that have been locked up because of how serious the issues is. It is therefore advisable never to indulge in this use at all. Normally, tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient in cannabis, takes about a month to clear out of your system. If you exercise, sleep well, meditate, and drink a lot of fluids including juices you will hasten the process of detoxification. Cannabis is a hallucinogen and can cause a lot of distortion of dreams and give you bad trips.
