You need to meet or speak to some qualified doctor in relationship and sexuality. Ignorance is one of the main reason for this situation. This is all stress and worries of life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Meet a relationship and sexuality super-specialist like me or anyone near by. Quality sexuality is a learned behavior which most of the people think that it comes by birth'wrong thinking'

That looks like an irrational thought. Challenge it with rational thoughts and logic. Everyone has tension and worry. Prioritising, time management, and critical problem solving will help you to regain your lost confidence and courage. Please go for counselling sessions.

I am aged 39Y. I'm unable to speak since 12/01/2016. I have contacted ENT specialist and undergone STOBORNOSCOPY on 19/01/2016 as suggested by the doctor. The doctor has written stobornoscopy report that PHONOTARY gap is positive. Please suggest, can I able to speak or Not?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
A positive phonatory gap means the vocal folds fail to close during phonation. A phonatory gap may be seen in patients who have muscle tension dysphonia, vocal fold paresis or paralysis, loss of tissue, or vocal fold flaccidity. Treatment aims to rectify the cause.

Nat. Mur 10 m single dose inform me after 8 days. Also just go throw following notes. Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. Homoeopathic medicine is mainly selected on the symptoms you give us. If we are to make a successful prescription, apart from the treatment through the remedies, a lot of counseling and appropriate diet regimen is required. Take care, god bless u, thnks.

How to improve our concentration power and thinking abilities? And what are the diet helpful for our brain.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

I have heard that dark chocolate is good for depression. Will I get same benefit if I take cocoa powder. Thanks.

I have heard that dark chocolate is good for depression. Will I get same benefit if I take cocoa powder. Thanks.
Dark chocolate along will not help in depression. Try following things to manage stress and over come depression. What you are feeling might be due to conic stress, result of our fast life style. You could also explain this as feeling burnout. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. 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. Thus 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. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and 3 rd rehbailitation, when anti cravinf medicines and counselling is given. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. You have to first understand that you are you. You have your own set of skills and capabilities, good points and bad points, good attitude and negative attitude. You are made by your own thinking and actions, never by others. Therefore, ignore what others say and be self respecting. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, kaafi baar cheezo per humara control nahi rehta. Ye acchi baat hai aap koshish karte hai ki galti nahi per galtiya to insaan se ho hi jaati hai, isme aap ka kya kasoor. Aagar aap ko apne decision me kam vishwaas hia to aap kisi aise se rai le sakte hai jinko aap apna adarsh mante hai ya sochte hai wo aap ko behter guide karenge. Itna gulti rakhenge to jo accha hone ja raha hai wo bhi kharab ho jayega.
