I do not have a speech therapist in my locality. I stammer very badly, I cannot communicate normally with people. I even cannot say my name. Can anyone tell me home remedies to cure stammering?

I am 25 years old. I am feeling better when I'm drinking codeine cough syrup. That I am fully addictive with this. Please save me. I want to forget it. But what shall I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is the attraction to drugs: it makes you feel better. If that was not so who would take it anyway? Codeine addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If you are having a serious addiction and you cannot quit its use, you will have to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend NA meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. to be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

You seem to be in stress. You will have to face whatever situation is bothering you. Fear is our biggest enemy- there is no problem in this world that doesn't have a solution. If there is no solution, then except the situation. Indulge in some relaxation exercises and meditation, talk to someone close and pour out your problems (share only with someone who can be of help), and tell yourself- this too shall pass- everything is going to be okay. Consult a psychologist, for better understanding of your problem.

Yes, your concern is right. Tobacco products abuse may lead to oral and throat carcinoma. He must quit his addiction at the earliest. All family members should persuade him to do that with positive attitude and motivate him. There are medicines which can be used to get faster results.

I am 24 years old and I am in a relationship with a man. I am insecure towards this relationship. I have fallen in love for the first time and it is long distance relationship. I am anxious that he does not love me. As there are no attempts from his side to nurture the relationship. In my opinion, when a person is in love. A person should do things that love can grow healthy. A surprise call in the middle of the day would do. But I thing my boyfriend do not care that much. I have discussed things with him earlier about it but there is no improvement or any change in his behaviour. He does not understand my emotional needs. Please help me. All these things are making me awake all night and over stressed.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand. It is important to remember we are only in control of our own emotions, thoughts and behaviors, we cannot control what another persons thinks, feels and does. Many times there is a miscommunication among partners in relationships due to varied expectations. It is important to sit down with your partner and list out your expectations and allow for your partner to do the same. From this you can create common goals and work towards it to improve your relationship. I hope this helps you and your partner better understand each others emotional needs. Please consult privately for further help. Good Luck.

Take rest for two days. Don't look at any screen of tv, mobile, or computor. Drink water, eat only fruits and natural or home made food and just listen to work. It is related to stress. So go for a 10 days holidays to a hill station.

Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Depression - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Depression - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Depression is a mental state which is not easily identified in its early stages; it is evident only when the symptoms become obvious. You may overlook it as a passing phase, and assume it to be normal. The people around you may also get used to the symptoms and accommodate accordingly. This can make the identification of depression even more complicated. Homeopathic treatments are entirely natural and do not carry any side effects. They are holistic treatments that get rid of the cause instead of just treating the symptoms of depression. The various homeopathic remedies for depression are:

  1. For anxiety related depression: Aconite is a homeopathic remedy that is used in the treatment of anxiety. The symptoms that it is used to treat are the ones, which occur suddenly and make you extremely pessimistic. For acute panic attacks, this medicine is very effective. Some other medicines that are also used to treat anxiety are Argentum Nitricum and Arsenic album.
  2. For depression in teenagers: Kali phos is a very effective homeopathic remedy for treating depression in teenagers, the causes of which are usually hormonal changes and high levels of stress. In some cases, depression may also be triggered by genetic factors. Ignatia is also used to treat depression in teenagers.
  3. Stress related depression: Kali phos is used to treat stress-related depression. It also helps in treating fatigue with homeopathy.
  4. Insomnia that results from depression: To remedy insomnia resulting from depression, you can opt for Kali Phos and Coffea Cruda.
  5. Severe depression: If the symptoms of depression are very severe and include suicidal tendencies, Aurum Metallicum may be recommended.
  6. Depression resulting from menopause: It is common for a woman to undergo a phase(s) of depression during menopause. The homeopathic remedies that are used in the treatment of this condition are Lachesis and sepia.
  7. Seasonal affective disorder: This type of disorder usually occurs during the winter season. The treatment for this disorder is prescribed after a proper diagnosis of the symptoms. Ignatia is a remedy that is usually recommended. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

It seems that due to study pressure you are in continuous stress. That might make you feel low and not interested. This stress is also affecting perhaps your focus, concentration and motivation for study. This in turn comes out as an exam anxiety. When you are worried before and/or during your exams that makes you forget your answers and blank out. I would strongly advice you to try things I am suggesting below. If you try these stress management techniques on a regular basis you will see positive changes in 2 to 4 weeks time. And then you may use 3 deep breath technique during your exam to stay calm. This will help you with recalling and figuring out the correct answer during exams. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

Dear lybrate-user, It is nice of you to come out with the smoking of joint and weed openly. All your symptoms are due to Cannabis. If you have a bad trip, your chances of repeating it and becoming dependent is low. This is the time to stop the routine cigarettes too. Plan for it step by step in the next 12 weeks.

My wife is very moody, has got lot of fallacies, does not believe me for no reason, does exactly opposite to what I suggest, she makes small issues into big ones, least afraid of any one in the society we live or in relations and many more issues. Do we have medicines or required any brain surgery? will hypnotism will be a good idea? please let me know.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Dear , it appears to be a personality problem. It is not an illness. Firstly you should tell her that you all love her so much and you want her to be more lovable. Very politely she should be made aware that she should change her behaviour as it becomes awkward at times. You may make a request to visit a psychiatrist or psychologist who may interview your wife and you in a unbiased manner, to find out expectations and fears you both are harbouring for each other, and finally suggest remedy for it. It is a long process called family therapy. The effects will be long lasting. A few medicines may be required for some time, but brain surgery is definitely out of question. Hypnotism is not meant for that.

Since childhood I speak very fast and some times I feel difficult in speaking few words. How to reduce it.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, speaking fast is a common phenomenon. However, if it makes your speech unclear, its always a problem. In order to be clear, you need to slow your speed of speech. Practice reading news paper with slow speed. Make it your habit. Explain your problem to your friends who understand you and practice slow speaking with them as much as possible till you get used to it. Always remember, your speech is not clear because you speak fast. Thank you.

Something is obviously not right with him and he needs help immediately. Take him to a counselor and if that person advises him to meet a doctor have him meet him too. Some people go blank when they are very angry and they have a temporary blackout at that time. So he may need anger management classes apart from some medical intervention.

My husband is 35 years old. He is very aggressive and violent. He never lets me express my feelings when he hurts me with his behaviour. On the contrary he starts blaming me giving superstitious reasons. This is affecting our marriage very badly. He is irregular in his work. Spending days at home, watching tv, playing games on mobile or else sleeping but not going to work giving some reason or the other. If he does any work of an hour or so he talks high of it but not regularly going for job. He lies too much to escape confrontation. There is always fight between us and he blames me for it calling me jinx. Although ours is a love marriage. Suddenly he has turned hostile towards me. He misbehaves and quarrels with me when his mother is around specifically. I have been very patient with his violent behaviour but I also retaliate at times due to the physical and verbal abuses everyday. He never accepts his mistake and behaves very abnormal by shouting, pulling his own hair, making weird voices, making big eyes etc. This is very disturbing for me. I come from a family where my parents never raised their voices at me. Forget about beating. I have only my father in my family. My mother is no more. He knew everything from the very beginning and he was ok with it. Gradually he has started blaming my father for our bad relationship. Although my father never interferes. My father intervened once when he was physically abusing me and my husband raised his hands on my father too. I am unable to cope up with his behaviour. Kindly advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am a little concerned that he is becoming so dysfunctional and finding excuses to justify it. Also a lot of his behavior could come under some pathological condition that he may need immediate help. I suggest that you both go for marriage counseling and work out your issues and if that counselor sees the need for him to seek psychiatric intervention, he would need to do so, and maybe he will be more receptive if the suggestion came from the professional. If he is unwilling to come with you, you at least go and meet with the counselor and describe the situation as objectively as you can. You will be guided as to what can be done to help you cope. You should not tolerate violence at any cost: this will lead to a pattern so that later it will become near impossible to correct it. If he has any disturbance in his personality, then he himself may not realize his misdeeds. If left untreated, he could become worse. Keep your father out of this as much as possible and seek professional help soon.
