My friend smoked every time, he finished 7-8 cigarette in one day, that's why gather some cough on his neck, what's can he do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is the way to give up smoking anyway: suddenly and immediately. The effects will be just great but depending on the amount of cigarettes he smokes, there will be a withdrawal reaction. That can be countered by some substitution methods that are useful and eases the withdrawal. His decision to want to quit is very welcome and you must do all you can to encourage and support him. Here are the ways to stop the smoking: First of all it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night!!! When he decides, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since he wants to do it I recommend that he seeks the help of a counselor and do it with support. He needs to identify with why he smokes: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. He may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because he has become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may join Smokers Anonymous in his city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep him 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 he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. To help process all of the above and to get support, let him go for counseling and persevere with it until he is completely over it.

I have mild breathing problem, I was a good smoker till two years back for more than a decade. Nos am 64 yrs. Generally I feel some sort of whistling sound from inside, may be some time while sleeping also some time. When I take inhaler forocart 200, in 5 to 19 min, breathing will be alright. Last week I could not take in immediately when I felt short breathing while in market, but I could not reach home by walk, in between I felt uneasiness with cough, motion also came out, in the road itself I felt unconscious. People feathered informed my wife and took me to borrow hospital. In the way to hospital I have been given mouth to mouth respiration by pressing chest continuously. After reaching hospital I regained conscious and given nebulisation and became alright in one hour. I like to know, whyit happened to me? is there some thing serious in such condition? what are the precautions I should take while travelling by air or rail or by walk? please revert and thanks.

You are more likly to have copd, considering your smoking history. Kindly get a spirometry done and post bronchodialator spirometry also to decide reversibility of airway obstruction, its severity, its diagnosis, asthma/copd. If copd change to tiomate 2puff once day with spacer. Also check your spo2 concentration and its fall on exersion. Get an holter done to r/o any arrythmia. Better consult a local pulmonologist for better planning your treatment.

My grandma is over 60 Nowadays she is suffering from cough (Suki khansi) maximum at night What is the natural remedy for her cough problem?

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

First of all Congretulations for taking a first step towards quitting smoking. Smoking is one of the few habits which takes very systematic approach and needs lot of support and individualized stretagies to quit successfully. Data such as - since how long are you smoking and how many cigarettes a day you consume are important information. Also have you tried quitting it earlier? How successful were you? And what are your personal reasons to stop smoking? All these are also important part of your success stretagy. Broadly speaking your reasons for not smoking work as your motivator. The stronger the reasons behind not smoking the higher the motivation and thus higher the chances for you to be successful. Also your body will have a withdrawal symptoms and it is very important to come up with strategies and solid plan to counter these withdrawal symptoms. These strategies should be tailormaid as per your need and situation. If you consider these and many other individualized approach and if you have a solid support through out your journey. You would be able to make a shift from being a smoker to a non smoker. I do have a 3 to 6 month package to help smokers step by step. To come up with stretagies that work and to customise the support system. You could either contact someone in your city or contact me to work either telephonically or via Internet based system.  Hope this helps Wishing you very best Try long distance running as a form of exercise. Join runner's group. That might help as well.

I am suffering from sinusitis. And headache. headache from from since 2-3 year. Can you suggest what should be don.
Hi  If you are  having a sinus  problems for so long we have to rule out Allergic  Rhinitis and sinusitis.  Get a CT PNS done. Or if you have one  done share the CT. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic sinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays. *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. If headache due to sinusitis it will get better. Do a eye refraction to check eyesight. Hope this helps.

खांसी के लिए घरेलू उपचार

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
खांसी से बचाव के लिए घरेलू उपचार

• गाय के दूध का 15-20 ग्राम घी और काली मिर्च को एक कटोरी में लेकर हल्की आंच में गरम कीजिए। जब काली मिर्च गरम हो जाए तो उसे थोडा सा ठंडा करके लगभग 20 ग्राम पीसी मिश्री मिला दीजिए। उसके बाद काली मिर्च निकालकर खा लीजिए। इस खुराक को दो-तीन दिन तक लेने से खांसी बंद हो जाएगी।
• तुलसी के पत्ते 5 काली मिर्च, 5 नग काला मनुक्का, 5 ग्राम चोकर (गेहूं के आटे का छान), 6 ग्राम मुलहठी, 3 ग्राम बनफशा के फूल लेकर 200 ग्राम पानी में उबाल लीजिए। जब पानी आधा हो जाए तो उसे ठंडा करके छान लीजिए। फिर गर्म करें और बताशे डालकर रात को सोते समय गरम-गरम पी लीजिए। इस खुराक को 3-4 दिन तक लेने से खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• खांसी होने पर सेंधा नमक की डली को आग पर अच्छे से गरम कर लीजिए। जब नमक की डली गर्म होकर लाल हो जाए तो तुरंत आधा कप पानी में डालकर निकाल लीजिए। सोने से पहले इस पानी को पीने से खांसी में काफी आराम मिलता है।
• एक ग्राम सेंधा नमक और 125 ग्राम पानी को आधा होने तक उबालिये। सुबह-शाम इस पानी को पीने से खांसी में आराम मिलता है।
• खांसी आने पर सोंठ को दूध में डालकर उबाल लीजिए। शाम को सोते वक्त इस दूध को पी लीजिए। ऐसा करने से कुछ दिनों में खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• शहद, किशमिश और मुनक्के को मिलाकर खाने से खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• त्रिफला में बराबर मात्रा में शहद मिलाकर पीने से खांसी में फायदा होता है।
• तुलसी, कालीमिर्च और अदरक की चाय पीने से भी खांसी समाप्त होती है।
• हींग, त्रिफला, मुलेठी और मिश्री को नींबू के रस में मिलाकर चाटने से भी खांसी में फायदा मिलता है।

सूखी खांसी कुछ ज्यादा ही तकलीफदेह होती है। सूखी खांसी में कफ नहीं आता सिर्फ खांसी आती है जो परेशान करती है। खांसी अगर ज्यादा दिन तक आए तो उसे नजरअंदाज नहीं करना चाहिए। दो हफ्ते से ज्यांदा खांसी आने पर चिकित्सक से संपर्क अवश्य करना चाहिए।
