That is very unfortunate. What made you to stop your medication. Please see your doctor and start your medicines again. Also counselling can be helpful in hyperactivity. Do try yoga, meditation to help you feel more calmer and grounded.

I don't want to live feel unwanted in family friends. No one bothers to even talk to me and friends try to take advantage. At times feel I should do something drastically wrong and finish offyself. Have a few friends but no one wants me to be introduced in there family and want them to know about me. All want a secret relationship which at time hurts a lot. Why people are so rude and nasty to me. As a family I don't have anyone and I think friends are my family but me always proved wrong. Why.

Hello there, 1) depression has to be treated scientific way & at all levels simultaneously. 2) counselling is a supportive management. 3) you have to treated at disease level & root cause level. 4) we have to improve - increase joy - happy hormone. 5) we have minimise - decrease sad - depression hormone. 6) patient has to be rehabilitate at home, society & work place. Nap therapy, medicines & nap yoga is very effective. Consult for further management.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. No cigarette is good for health or harmless. Every cigarette smoking is addictive and can cause many diseases including cancer. Quit smoking. Take care.

How should I concentrate and study motivated for long hours. (Though if there are personal issues or not)

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Try these ideas out: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

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.

Just do this small exercise: Sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall straight up, making 90 degree angle for 5 mins. Its better you do in early morning, else you can do it anytime. This will make your blood flow increased towards brain and increase your memory and physical strength too. All the best. For any more queries you are most welcomed. :)

Is there are any health problem after quiting smoking or chewing tobacco without any medical treatment?

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Not at all. Most people who quit smoking or chewing tobacco do so by going cold turkey. That is, they stop everything suddenly. Medical help is only required for the withdrawal symptoms, if they are severe or unmanageable.

How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling
Psychologist, Jalandhar
How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you. 
Depressive disorders make one feel exhausted, worthless, helpless, and hopeless. Such negative thoughts and feelings make some people feel like giving up. It is important to realize that these negative views are part of the depression and typically do not accurately reflect the actual circumstances. Negative thinking fades as treatment begins to take effect. In the meantime:

set realistic goals in light of the depression and assume a reasonable amount of responsibility. 

break large tasks into small ones, set some priorities, and do what you can as you can. 

try to be with other people and to confide in someone; it is usually better than being alone and secretive. 

participate in activities that may make you feel better. 

mild exercise, going to a movie, a ballgame, or participating in religious, social, or other activities may help. 

expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately. Feeling better takes time. 

it is advisable to postpone important decisions until the depression has lifted. Before deciding to make a significant transition change jobs, get married or divorced discuss it with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation. 

people rarely" snap out of" a depression. But they can feel a little better day-by-day. 

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you.

Dear sir/mam, I am male 40 my wife at 33 married since 15 years having two children she at 14 and son is at 7.this is my short and sweet family. We were happy but serious problem arise just before one year. Actually since past 4 year when one another family made entry between us as her friends up to 3 years of their friendship I ignored many mental distresses from her friends but from last one year this friendship turned into disruption of our relationship and it cured me a very largely mentally, physically and economically. So I took decisions to restrict relationship with her friends since last 6 months. This causes untrust between us husband and wife. She is not cooperating me. She is fighting with me. I tried a lot to make understand my wife with love and trust. I always used to get fight but she always produce cause to fight. Now I'm thinking what things I could not provide them to make my family happy. I did all best. She forget everything even my soul attachment to her my love to her. She kept remember one thing only her friends. Im not so important to her .she is crying ,I'm crying since 6 months but she is not ready to leave them. She is ready to leave me my children and my home. She is warning me to do suicide for these people. This lead me broken heart, untrust,losing everything. Feeling a defeated man. Im feel high great anxiety. Almost crying day night. Im not able to do everyday task normally. My soul is filled with darkness. Pls advise me. What should I do.

You should immediately visit a marriage counselor and sort this matter out. While it was not a good decision to make her abandon her friends, it may have been necessary for various reasons that you have mentioned. However, you will be quite subjective in your judgement and so it is advisable to get a professional opinion on the basis of facts as narrated to that person. Friends can have both good and bad influences but it depends a lot on perception too. It is likely that your wife does not have enough social life and she may be extrovertive in nature which will make her want company a lot. If she is not working, then that craving for company will be even more. These matters may be discussed opening with her but if you are insistent of your way only, then you will need a third person's intervention. Do not delay this any further because of the talk of suicide and also these may develop to a point of no return. Then it will be too late. Counseling should continue as an ongoing process until the matter is resolved completely.

I am 45 years man. I wish to stop my smoking and I am not able to do it. So how can I stop my smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Hello, there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc.
