Hello, Vitamin B12 supplements helps to relieve anxiety. It is also available in eggs, and lean meat, mushrooms and to some extent sprouts. You feel anxiety if you are very much stressed and have poor gut bacteria which are responsible for production and absorption of vit B12. Try eating yogurt and fermented food to replenish good gut bacteria and follow relaxation techniques to cope up from stress. Deep breaths works excellent as stress buster. Dark chocolate also helps to relieve stress. Hope you find this helpful. stay healthy stay fit.☺

So sit now, give some time to your mind, think clearly, give more time for practice in which arena you r week but it is important for exam, make your time table and follow for three weeks religiously. Feel change and self confidence.

Good morning sir. I am suffering from ocd and I wash my anal area for a long time than generally a man do. I insert my finger to clean it thoroughly as I read somewhere that if I clean inserting finger I would not have disease like piles. Should I do so or just wash externally as I do not like inserting finger. Thank you.

You have no need to insert your finger to wash your anal area. By this you can damage your tissues. Make a chart and note down the time you spent every time to wash your anal area. Day by day reduce the time. If you feel anxious starts breathing exercise it keeps you calm. And go for consultation to any psychologist.

Dear , I can understand. You are just 25 and I just don' t see any impending problem to your memory. Please introspect. If you can recall the story of a popular movie you last seen, or if you can remember the names of your favorite friends, or if you can remember what you ate for yesterday' s break fast and dinner, possibly you do not have any memory problems. If you feel memory problems in your education, then the problem lies in your interest to the subject and the way you study. If you get bored while studying, naturally, you understand nothing, thereby no recollection. After going through the above two paragraphs, you please introspect, and come back if you still want to clarify something. Take care.

Sir I am addicted of smoking. So please advise me to quit smoking. Soon please tell me soon. I am waiting.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

10 Signs That You May Be Bipolar DISORDER

When it comes to mental illness, there are plenty of stereotypes. But in reality, mood disorders can be hard to pinpoint?particularly in people with bipolar disorder symptoms.
Here are 10 signs that mood problems may be due to more than a quirky or difficult personality:

Greater Than Great Mood
Bipolar disorder is characterized by up-and-down episodes of mania and depression. During a manic phase, some patients can have a total break from reality. But hypomania, which is also a symptom of the disorder, is a high-energy state in which a person feels exuberant but hasn?t lost his or her grip on reality. ?Hypomania can be a pretty enjoyable state, really,? A person?s mood can be elevated, they may have a lot of energy and creativity, and they may experience euphoria. This is the ?up? side of bipolar disorder that some people with the condition actually enjoy?while it lasts.
Inability To Complete Tasks
Having a house full of half-completed projects is a hallmark of bipolar disorder. People who can harness their energy when they are in a hypomanic phase can be really productive. Those who can?t often go from task to task, planning grand, unrealistic projects that are never finished before moving on to something else. ?They can be quite distractible and may start a million things and never finish them,?
Depression
A person who is in a bipolar depressive state is going to look just like someone who has regular depression. ?They have the same problems with energy, appetite, sleep, and focus as others who have ?plain old depression,?? Unfortunately, typical antidepressants alone don?t work well in patients who are bipolar. They can even make people cycle more frequently, worsening their condition, or send someone into a break-with-reality episode. ?Antidepressants can be downright dangerous in people with bipolar because they can send them into mania,?

Irritability
Some people with this condition suffer from ?mixed mania,? where they experience symptoms of mania and depression at the same time. During this state, they are often extremely irritable. Everyone has bad days, which is one reason this kind of bipolarity is much harder to recognize. ?We are all irritable or moody sometimes,? . ?But in people with bipolar disorder it often becomes so severe that it interferes with their relationships?especially if the person is saying, ?I don?t know why I?m so irritable?I can't control it.??
Rapid Speech
Some people are naturally talkative; we all know a motormouth or Chatty Cathy. But ?pressured speech? is one of the most common symptoms of bipolar disorder. This kind of speech occurs when someone is really not in a two-way conversation, The person will talk rapidly and if you try to speak, they will likely just talk over you. They will also sometimes jump around to different topics. ?What?s kind of a red flag is when it is atypical for the person to talk like this,? doing it only when they are in a manic cycle but not at other times,
Problems At Work
People with this disorder often have difficulty in the workplace because so many of their symptoms can interfere with their ability to show up for work, do their job, and interact productively with others. In addition to having problems completing tasks, they may have difficulty sleeping, irritability, and an inflated ego during a manic phase, and depression at other times, which causes excessive sleeping and additional mood problems. A lot of the workplace problems can be interpersonal ones,
Substance Abuse
About 50% of people with bipolar disorder also have a substance abuse problem, particularly alcohol use, . Many people will drink when they are in a manic phase to slow themselves down, and use alcohol to improve their mood when they are depressed.
Erratic Behavior
When they are in a manic phase, people with bipolar disorder can have an inflated self-esteem. ?They feel grandiose and don?t consider consequences; everything sounds good to them,? . Two of the most common types of behavior that can result from this are spending sprees and unusual sexual behavior. ?I have had a number of patients who have had affairs who never would have done that if they weren't in a manic episode?during this episode they exhibited behavior that is not consistent with what they would do normally,?

Dear , When you get distracting thoughts, please do not fight them. Simply let them pass. When you fight the distracting thoughts and feeling, you are actually energising them. When you get time you can learn vipassana meditation. Or some of the wonderful online meditation techniques which are easy to learn and easy to practice.
