I think start speech therapy for her. Give her reward if she tries to speak properly. Let do her practice to speak infront of mirror. Best luck.

Some times I feel unhappiness. I blame others what I do, not find result what I have to do face depression.
Feeling unhappy and sad persistently for no apparent reasons is a sign of underlying depressive disorder. It's just an escape for the mind to blame others for our happiness, it's another sign of a weakened mind. Consult a psychiatrist for counseling and medical help if required. Depression like any other illness is completely treatable. You may consult me online for any queries or treatment thereof.

Yes anxiety and ibs are very much related. We haven't concluded whether anxiety is the cause of IBS or IBS causes the anxiety in those pt. But one thing is for sure anxiety worsen infact makes it difficult to cure of this disease. All you need to do is control your anxiety. Do meditation. And relax a bit. Take food in every 4 hrs. With this you need proper homeopathic treatment for cure. If you can continued with homoeopathic treatment you will definitely get some better result. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate. One more thing you need to boost up your confidence level.

Looking like narcolepsy. Which is a kind of sleep dissorder where, exactly your c/o. Will be there. Its a kind of stress /psychological based dissorder. To treat it in homeo, needs full detailed h/o. Along with that, you need to follow few health tips like practicing yoga/meditation/pranayama etc. Neglecting this will be a serious issue&risk factor.

I am an introvert guy. But want to talk to people but i'm not able to do that. How can I become extrovert?

I am an introvert guy. But want to talk to people but i'm not able to do that. How can I become extrovert?
Your intrinsic nature of being an introvert cannot be completely altered and there is no need to do so because being an introvert has several advantages. But, the disadvantages of being an introvert can be modified, thus getting benefits of both worlds. This is generally done by way of intensive psychotherapy. Medicines may help to some extent. If you are really keen on this and willing to put in effort and time, you can get back to me on this. Take care!

Sir, past 2 years i taking Provinol,rexipra,petril & tryptomer for stress and anixity. Before taking the medicine i feel normal sexual feelings. After taking 4-5 months i feel uncomforted in my sexual feelings like my penis not having strength and the liquid releasing very small like drops. Can I get reason ?

MSc-Psychology, MHSc-Reproductive and Sexual Medicine, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Yes. People on psychiatric medication can have less desire ,less erection, and delayed or no ejaculation. 10- 30 % of patients can have it. Reversal takes place after a few months of stopping the drugs. Switching to some other drug may drug help. Inform the the psychiatrist about your sex problem.

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 am 54 years old. My son is married but I am feeling loneliness  not interested in anything. what should i do?
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.

I have alcohol habit what should I do to leave it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called? cross addictions? i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend aa meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father? s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. They will need the family? s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else? s support you can get and act on it fast.

How to remember answers fast and for longer time How to get a sharp mind. I forgot answer in one day which I learned yesterday. please plz help. Me im fyb. Com student.

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
We generally forget things that have been crammed and not properly understood. Try to understand the concepts and then explain them to yourself or someone else in your own words - in high probability you will remember it for a longer time. Make points and revise them again before sleeping. To have a sharp mind - take a balanced diet, avoid junk food and have plenty of water. Exercise everyday for better blood circulation and increased concentration. Remain focused on your goal - set daily targets for yourself.

All About Melasma

Diploma in Dermatology, Venereology and Leprosy - , MBBS

All About Melasma

A common skin condition, which causes the discoloration of your skin in patches across the face, melasma is more of a social embarrassment and cause for distress rather than being a serious condition. Although it affects men as well, studies have shown that over 90 percent of patients are women. It is also known as the mask of pregnancy as many pregnant women develop this skin condition.

Causes of Melasma
Primary causes of melasma have been attributed to various hormonal changes within the body. Let's look at some of the factors that may cause this disorder:
1. Pregnancy: This is often attributed as the leading cause of melasma, the primary cause has often been attributed to hormonal changes that a woman may experience due to pregnancy.

2. Treatments that may change hormonal balance: Women on contraceptive pills or who have implants such as intrauterine devices may also develop this disorder. This is due to the balance of estrogen and progesterone being changed within the body.

3. Sun exposure: Continued sun exposure may also lead to melasma. This is due to the activation of melanocytes within the body which start producing more melanin.

4. Stress: Long periods of stress on the body can also trigger hormonal changes and cause melasma.

5. Thyroid problems: If someone suffers from Hypothyroidism or low levels of the thyroid hormone, it can trigger other hormonal changes and also cause this skin disorder. 
It has also been noticed that people with generally a darker skin tone tend to get melasma and it is less common in people with fairer skin.

Certain characteristics of Melasma
Melasma develops in certain patterns which can be easily diagnosed either as spots on the skin similar to freckles or brown patches of skin that grow bigger. Some of these patterns are:
a. Malar pattern: This grows on the nose and cheeks
b. Mandibular pattern: Starts growing around the jaw line
c. Brachial melasma: This grows on the upper arms and shoulders
d. Lateral cheek pattern: Grows on the cheek on both sides of the face
e. Centrofacial pattern: Nose, upper lips, forehead and cheeks

Treatment of Melasma
Most women who develop melasma during pregnancy report that it goes away after childbirth. However certain forms of melasma may appear in non-pregnant women due to hormonal changes. Treating the underlying hormonal changes usually resolves the problem. However certain other methods may be required to resolve the issues such as skin creams, chemical peels, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion.

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,
For vitamin d levels as low as 4, I would suggest arachitol injection of 6 lac units taken once every 15 days for 3 cycles. Follow up with the satchet later on. Also take diet consisting of ragi, fruits, milk and milk products. Add some regular exercise.

Sir actually I smoke weed and want to leave smoking but I can't. Actually I tried alot but I can move on from smoking weed. How can I quit smoking weed? Please help me out of this. Thank you.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Spend your time in nice activities like nice books and articles , and avoid cheap and flickering pleasure of smoking weed which can damage your life. Smoking weed is an intoxicant which is bad for body, mind and well-being. One should be ready to realize the bad effects, then one can avoid smoking weeds by engaging mind and body in more constructive activities Please remember that Smoking weed is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga. To know about sources of books and articles kindly contact me

Psychiatrist,
Your quality of life will gradually decline and can develop many psychosomatic diseases like hypertension, diabetes etc etc. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.
