My father is a smoker since more than 20 years, can you prescribe me with something to help him quit smoking?

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Suggest you to take proper medicines from psychiatrist for anxiety. Once anxiety is controlled, then you can consult a psychologist to learn on Relaxation therapy which helps the body and mind to relax. The relaxation therapy once taught can be practiced at home and during it would help your mind and body to relax which makes the flow of blood and oxygen smooth, resulting in feeling of lightness. Other best suggested method is to meet a clinical hypnotherapist for same, but only after medicines have controlled anxiety. You can contact me on private message for more info on hypnotherapy.

I am suffering from fever in Two days, and pain in my body. Now what I can do for myself.

I am suffering from fever in Two days, and pain in my body.
Now what I can do for myself.
Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.

Hi if you really need help, you need emotional regulation for which you need to take therapy. The reason behind your anger and triggers need to be understood by me. You can consult me. Till then, you can try deep breathing exercise. Distance yourself from the situation when you feel angry. count backwards 20 to 1. realize if this situation can be handled differently. Dont worry you can get over it soon. all the best :)

I am 35 years old and suffering with sinus and allergy problems like sneezing all the time I had operation 2 years back and I feel that my through is filled with water like I have given up smoking 1 year back.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Mr, lybrate-user if you have been operated earlier than I have some thing for you and read this carefully, sinus is a normal roomy structure around nasal cavity its infection called sinusitis, if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusits. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopic-ally.

Well your child may have shyness issues and if it becomes very pronounced, as in, she avoids looking up completely then you do need to get her help. Right now she is young and she can grow out of this behavior. You must encourage her to look up when speaking and never label her or embarrass her in public. You could actually talk to her about this behavior and find out what she is shy of. If you have too high expectations, or reprimanded her for not being good enough, or pointed out some short comings, she may use that to feel inadequate, especially in a social setting. She may also be afraid of older people and this intimidation may also have some history to it. First, you can ask her to look up when she speaks at home and help her become comfortable looking into familiar people’s faces. If you know that you had embarrassed her in the past and this is affecting her, apologize for the same and explain that you were too harsh perhaps, and rectify the issue or incident with some truth. You can ideally make her change in playful situations where the ease and comfort of the game will help her overcome her inhibitions. She must be given a lot of opportunities to play around with her peers. You may also check her behavior in school but very non-intrusively, and with the help of the teacher a lot of progress can be initiated. If there was any incident in the institution that contributed to this behavior then that can be looked at and some measures taken but it is to be very discreetly.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. I will help you. Don't worry. Take care.

Can activated charcoal be taken for cleansing of stomach? I have digestion problems due to anxiety, fear and stress.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Can activated charcoal be taken for cleansing of stomach? I have digestion problems due to anxiety, fear and stress.
Cleansing stomach is a misnomer believed by common men and quacks. STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or “deep breathing” exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or guided imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga.
