I am a party alcoholic I have been using liv 52 ds regularly one per day past 3 years Can I continue to use it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu can continue Liv 52 but stop alcohol. Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

I CAN GUARANTEE YOU WILL BE FINE IF YOU GIVE ME THE GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL DAILY PRACTICE ALL THAT IS TAUGHT DAILY ON ASTHA CHANNEL 5.00 TO 7.30 AM. VERY VERY EFFECTIVE- ESP ANULOM-VILOM AND BRAMRI AND UDGIT. YOU WILL GET MIRACULOUS RESULTS FOR FREE AND WITHOUT ADVERSE EFFECTS OF ALLOPATHIC MEDICINES AND WILL GAIN GOOD PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH, INCREASE IN YOUR STAMINA, GOOD CONCENTRATION, IMPROVED MEMORY, ETC. IT IS EXCELLENT TO DRIVE DEPRESSION , NEGATIVE THINKING OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM. NOT NECESSARY, YOU HAVE TO BE PRESENT IN FRONT OF YOUR TV AT 5 AM. BEGIN BY SWITCHING ON YOUR TV JUST WHATEVER TIME YOU GET UP AND START PRACTICING AS BEING TAUGHT. GRADUALLY WHEN YOU REGULATE YOUR SLEEPING TIME, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET UP NEXT MORNING AT 5 AND WILL BE ABLE TO DO COMPLETE WORKOUT. THE TIME YOU SPEND HERE WILL ACTUALLY BE AN INVESTMENT THAT WILL REMOVE TENSION, STRESS, ETC. LEADING TO INCREASED POSITIVITY.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear Rajesh, Your father needs to consult a psychiatrist with all his medical reports. All psychiatric treatments take time to become effective. For that you need to consult the psychiatrist repeatedly. Of course you are welcome to change the doctor without discontinuing the treatment by the previous one and taking a referral letter from the previous psychiatrists. Otherwise each one will start with the first line, will not be able to assess you for the effectiveness. No one will be able to go for resistant depression treatment.

See a qualified and trained psychologist at the earliest. Psychologist is an expert in diagnosis by psychological testing and counselling/psychotherapy i. E. Treatment without medicines. Psychiatrist gives medicines only. Treatment started earlier will control the problem very fast. Get proper diagnosis first followed by right treatment. Please get diagnosis confirmed first then take medicines as advised. It is possible that problem is psychological-then it will not be cured by medicines. You will need psychotherapy.

Is Technology Ruining Your Love Life?

Is Technology Ruining Your Love Life?

Technology has become a major barrier in relationships these days. If you spend a lot of time with your laptop and phone, chances are that your love life may be getting affected without you knowing about it.

Here are a few instances when technology plays spoilsport in your relationship.

1. Tracking your ex’s social media profiles: Checking your ex’s Facebook and Instagram profile twice a day does more harm than good. Letting go of old flame is a good idea in order to thrive in your current relationship. While no one is advising you to stop using social networking sites, refraining from your ex’s profile will do a world of good to your relationship.

2. Your mailbox is bothering you way too much: People often become too engrossed in their professional life and tend to neglect their partner. The funny thing is, they don’t even realize it until the inevitable happens. While work is important, prioritizing your activities is the key here. It makes sense to completely stay from work related activities while you spend time with your partner. Your undivided attention to your partner will do the trick.

3.  You are involved with too many chat groups: Platforms like WhatsApp and wechat can greatly sabotage your love life. Your partner might get irritated with the fact that your whole attention lies on your phone rather than him. A reply to your school buddy group can wait for a few hours. It is a good idea to stay away from typing while you are with your partner.

4.  Planning a date is a nightmare for you: If you are too tech-savvy, it might take a long time for you to plan a date. Checking the feedback of every place you intend to visit not only consumes a lot of time, it drains your energy. While checking the star rating of a restaurant is a good idea, becoming over obsessive about the rating might ruin the whole idea of a date.

5. You have a super active twitter handle: A recent study has shown that people who are hyperactive on twitter often faces problems in their relationship. In your endeavor of updating your twitter handle, you become obsessed with it and end up spending a lot of time. This might greatly sabotage your relationship.

6. You take too much time deciphering texts: You might be dating for years yet get paranoid when it comes to texting your partner. You are too worried about the tone of the message, spelling of the words and punctuations marks of your text you are about to send. If this rings a bell, you surely need to mend your ways in order to save time and focus more on your relationship.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi I am suffering from Schizophrenia I've started doing pranayama for last 5 days I'm better also I really enjoy doing pranayama I'm not obsessed with pranayama Can I do pranayama twice a day 1 hour in morning n 45 minutes in evening Give me a positive response.

Good Morning ~ Yes, doing pranayama is good for health overall and not just mental health or physical health only. I would recommend that you continue your habit of the same. However if you are suffering from schizophrenia, medications can be extremely helpful and this may have an additive effect to the pranayama or other technique that you may be following. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment
