How does a person gets rid of chewing tobacco . Is there any medicine or any therapy centre.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

I can not be positive. When I want, even I can not be happy. I just want to be me. Want to love myself. Please help.
To love yourself , begin with respecting your self . Be grateful for what you have . Stop comparing yourself with others. Every individual is different and unique . Remind yourself of all your assets/ qualities that make you the unique person are. If you wish to see yourself as a different person , start to practice those qualities that you like in others.

Yesss, smoking creates lots of health problems. If you want to quit your addiction of smoking you need to create motivation in urself that you can stay without smoking. It helps to create your self confidence to quit it. Try to attaind narcotics anonymous meetings. Or you can take help from psychiatrist to deal with your withdrawal symptoms. Use positive substitutes like chewing chocklate, mithi soanf etc. But do not use smoking if you r going through craving. If you have any questions you can ask me anytime. Not to worry, best luck. I know you have the ability as well as power to come out from the disease of smoking addiction. Have a nice day.

I have all the symptoms of ADD what should I do. I cannot concentrate on anything and I get bored with everything.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Try to exercise on most days. You don’t have to go to the gym. A 30-minute walk four times a week is enough to provide benefits. Thirty minutes of activity every day is even better. Pick something enjoyable, so you’ll stick with it. Choose activities that play to your physical strengths or that you find challenging yet fun. Team sports can be a good choice because the social element keeps them interesting. Get out into nature. Studies show that spending time in nature can reduce the symptoms of ADD/ADHD. Double up on the benefits by combining “green time” with exercise. Try hiking, trail running, or walking in a local park or scenic area. Tips for getting better sleep Have a set bedtime and stick to it, and get up at the same time each morning, even if you’re tired. Make sure your bedroom is completely dark and keep electronics out (even the dim light from digital clocks or your cellphone can disrupt sleep). Avoid caffeine later in the day, or consider cutting it out entirely. Implement a quiet hour or two before bed. Try to turn off all screens (TV, computer, smartphone, etc.) at least an hour before bedtime. If your medication is keeping you up at night, talk with your doctor about taking a lower dose or taking it earlier in the day.

Dear, according to your situation, you should not try to mend up the issue. Because later, after marriage, the problem could escalate. The best option is to forget the episode. When you decide to forget the episode, the psychological trauma will end within some time. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

My brother sickness was identified  schizophrenia in iran and we have done so much treatment in India, Turkey, Turkmenistan, iran Pakistan  so he is still is not good Please help them. He is sick more than 25 years will pay your fees if he get will.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)

Dear, schizophrenia is a severe mental illness that is primarily treated with medicines and other brain stimulation techniques. We will have to carefully review the treatment records and whether any brain stimulation methods have been used or not. Many times medicines are used for inadequate period of time or at inadequate doses. Sometimes medicine doses are missed. Finally we have to see if the diagnosis of schizophrenia is accurate or not. Based on all these information, advice can be suggested.

Clinical depression in any neurological patient is common. Since your father tried to attempt suicide also, it is severe depression. He needs antidepressant treatment. It will take around 3 weeks for him to improve and agree for surgery. The surgeons will wait since they want your dad to improve after operation. With depression even after operation, the improvement will be slow. Please request your neurosurgeon only to find a psychiatrist for your dad at the earliest. Otherwise you can also find one in online site. Please don't leave him alone at any time. Remove all objects which he can take to attempt like tablets, knife, etc.

Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

Can the Immune System Trigger Alzheimer's Disease

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Rajkot
Can the Immune System Trigger Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease is a neurological problem that is characterised by a cognitive decline and memory loss. It is a type of neurodegenerative dementia. The symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease include not being able to absorb and retain new information, lack of reasoning and judging, not being able to take on complex tasks, impaired visuospatial abilities, problems in reading, writing and speech, among many others. If a person has at least two of these symptoms in a debilitating manner, then the diagnosis can be made in favour of Alzheimer's Disease. The main causes of Alzheimer's are shrinkage of the brain size and death of the brain cells. The immune system is also said to trigger this neurodegenerative disease.

Let us find out what medical science has found so far:

  1. Connections: Many a times, in Alzheimer's disease, the memory and behaviour of the person changes because the brain is unable to make proper neural connections which can lead to memory loss of how a person behaved and the elements that formed the basis of the patient's cognition. Apparently, the immune system behaves in the same way within the brain and blocks the connection. This happens because there is constant communication between the brain and immune system along neurological lines, which is where the disease first emanates.
  2. Inflammation: The brain is prone to inflammation or swelling that is not the normal kind. This inflammation happens as a result of the activation of the infection fighting neurotransmitters and the chemical changes that happen in the brain when an infection strikes. The inflammation usually happens in the plaques or clumps which the brain tries to protect. These clumps are made up of a protein called Amyloid. The immune system is responsible for creating this inflammation in the brain of the patient.
  3. Pattern Recognition Receptors: Many of these receptors work in different manners and cooperate with each other to create a response in the brain. These PRRs can be found in the brain plaques, and they develop the signs of danger which further fuels the inflammation in the brain as a matter of protection.
  4. Activation of Cells Linked with the Immune System: When the PRRs begin to respond, it basically activates the immune system and the cells of the same. This is the basic reaction that causes the changes in brain which then leads to the attachment of the protein to the tissue that is diseased, in which case Alzheimer's Disease starts. The inflammation that we had spoken about earlier basically happens in the nervous tissue.

It is important to recognise and act on the initial signs of Alzheimer's Disease before it progresses beyond one's control.

Depression can be due to various reasons and you can improve with other interventions mentioned below along with medication. 1. Eat light food with lean proteins, low carbohydrates, sugars and fats. Eat more of whole grains, fish, chicken, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid all junk and processed foods as they are loaded with chemicals and have a direct impact on brain functioning. Junk food, high sugars and fats in diet are directly linked to causing depression and anxiety. If your vitamin b12 and d3 levels are low then please take the supplements after consulting your psychiatrist. 2. Take out time to exercise regularly and give your brain the oxygen boost that it needs to combat depression. Aerobics, gym, cycling, walking, yoga. Anything that'll freshen you up. Additionally exercising releases natural anti depressants in the blood thus cutting down the needfor artificial medication which often has side effects. Exercising will reduce your weight, make you active and improve your self image and confidence. 3. There are natural antidepressants in homeopathy and ayurveda with fewer side effects. Please check out those after doing your research. 5. You must catch on your beauty sleep for the brain to rest adequately as sleep is disturbed in depression. Our brain gets tired and needs to rest after a heavy activity to release all the toxins and repair damages. Dreams are a way to remove unhealthy thoughts which is important at this time. Try a rural sleep aids like pranayama, music, bath etc to help you sleep. Avoid any activity which awake she mind or creates tension. Stop using computer at least an hour before you sleep. 6. Seek counselling for your depression. You willbe able to unload your stress in an unbiased space and learn tips to handle it effectively as well. Depression is linked with unhelpful thoughts which are repetitive in nature. Cognitive behaviour therapy will help you to reduce over thinkingand rumination and teach you more updated and helpful thoughts to get the best out of your life. These are general tips.

Where there is smoke, there is always fire. I am sure you cannot be all that innocent and suffering like this without reason. In every situation, we contribute in some way or the other to our problems. So if you look at what you are contributing to your situation, then you can change that and expect better results. If you know them apologise and meet her again and invite her back. But you must guarantee not to re[peat those problems. It is true that there are people who can be problematic even with the best of situations, yet I recommend that you try to win her over with love. You must also visit a counselor and sort out your issues under that person's guidance. Trying to resolve your problems without professional help will never work out because it seems like the problems are deep-rooted and needs external help. I don't know if the discord is beyond repair but it is worth trying with help from others, but seek the help of a professional only. You must own responsibility for your actions and change your behavior first. Both partners contribute to the situation though it may not be equal contribution. But the solution lies in both of you dealing with your own contributions to make a success out of the reconciliation.

I guess by upset you mean depressed. But for 8 months if you so upset then this relationship must have meant a lot to you. Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.

Suffering From Mental And Physical Stress? Try Homeopathy

Suffering From Mental And Physical Stress? Try Homeopathy

For the past two centuries, Homeopaths have concentrated on the interconnection between psychology and physiology. It has been known for long that Homeopathy has no side effects on a person's overall health and thus, it should be implemented in curing mental and physical stress. Mental stress may result from a person's coping skills. You may respond to stress in a wrong way and this further complicates your situation.

You may fail to control your instinctive reactions. Medications in Homeopathy can actually remedy disorders regarding stress management. In many cases, it has been noticed that a physiological disease has a psychological impetus to itself. For instance, people falling under the 'Type A personality' category are more susceptible to heart problems. Their heart problems can be serious enough to make them undergo bypass surgeries. 

An operation can be avoided, if only reasons behind problems at the surface are understood. Patients belonging to the 'Type A personality' category can suffer from 'hurry sickness' with symptoms like bouts of anger, impatience, aggression and hurriedness. These factors together enhance the risk of having heart problems later in life.

The following medicines tackle disorders without any side effects:

  1. Homeopaths advise you to take Aconitum napellus to reduce physical stress. Aconite napellus is known to treat problems such as a dry mouth, an irritable skin, a pounding heart and so on so forth. This can even cure problems resulting from a traumatic episode in past.
  2. Another Homeopathic medicine prescribed to deal with anxieties about future is Arsenicum album. If you have fears about your safety, about certainty or about what future has in store for you, this medicine can help you out.
  3. The medicine Phosphorus is known to treat fears of being alone. Many people are afraid of being alone. They need company all the time. Phosphorus also tackles common fears, such as fear of thunderstorms, fear of the dark or fear of ghosts for that matter.
  4. People facing anxieties about health or anxieties about death often evade sleeping at night. They hallucinate and see apparitions. Mental stress therefore, leads to physical stress. Kali- arsenicosum is one Homeopathic medicine to take care of such problems.

Homeopathy as an alternative branch of medicine, which comes to your relief without causing other bodily problems during the course of treatment. Hence, to fight mental or physical stress you must try out Homeopathy.
