Hi lybrate-user, do not worry, its okay if you can not pass stools for one or two days, just walk around and take bran or husk at night, start taking thronorm after consulting your physician again. You need a psychiatrist's advise too, since you have musltipple complaints making you anxious, go to a nearby hospital having a good psychiatry department .Wish you a speedy recovery, best of luck.

My wife aged, 52 years, a housewife, has of late been undergoing a lot of anxiety.
When anxiety comes analyse her situation. In that situation give proper support. Talk some general issues. Maintain good friendly rapport with her. Do not talk unnecessary issues with her. Talk always general matters. Do not tell your personal problems with her. Maintain reservedness with her. Provide good family environment. Treat to her as a friend. You can only helpful to come out of this problem. Better to her morning walking, marketing or evening walk. Go both of them temples or movies or parks. Better to give the most friendly environment. Listen patiently with her personal problems. Create you are the best friend of herself. Do some work above mentioned manner. Better to practice yoga and meditation. Do not use any medication for this problem. Do not allow her alone. Be share all her personal feelings and problems very patiently. If it is not possible to yourself. Then in that case it is better to consult qualified psychologist in hyderabad. Be sociable all the time and be friendly all the time. Ok all the best.

Sir i am drinking wine from last 35 year 360 ml daily. I want stop drinking please tell me how can I stop drinking.

You are indeed drinking too much per day. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, and how much you drink as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

My wife aged 38 yrs does house hold work while taking bath. She does not allow anyone to touch her belongings. She spents even 6-8 hours a day pouring water upon her and doing routine job. If someone interrupts she becomes furious. Sometimes she removes her clothes and lie down and becomes very abusive. She doesn't allow anyone to come my house. The problem persists since her adolescence. I feel very disturbed due to her habit. Please help me if there is any medication for her.

Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Stop smoking before it causes you any more harm. It should be done best with will power. Or consult a pulmonologist for the same. You might be having bronchitis due to smoking injury that is the reason for your cough. You will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis and also to assess severity of bronchitis based on which treatemnt can be started. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Hypnotherapy In Smoking Cessation

Hypnotherapy In Smoking Cessation

Smoking is a die hard habit and many people eventually die of the same. It remains one of the most common causes of cancer and lung diseases, which eventually lead to death. The irony is that almost all smokers know the harmful effects, but find it hard to quit.

With a firm determination, there are people who quit, but then the relapse rate is quite high too.

  • Many believe that quitting requires a behavioural change. From peer pressure to a lifestyle habit, smoking is a social phenomenon. There are various methods to help quit smoking like quitting cold turkey and nicotine substitutes. Hypnosis is also gaining popularity as a method to help quit smoking. Research has shown an encouraging success rate in the range of 30 to 40% in cases where the desire and commitment to quit are high. This of course is with people who have strong will and are able to be hypnotized.
  • Hypnosis or hypnotherapy is a psychological technique used as supplemental therapy in a lot of cases, such as weight loss, depression, speech disorders, pain management, de-addiction; the list can be quite long.  It puts the person undergoing therapy into a deep sleep or trance, where they get in touch with themselves and find answers to a lot of questions. It is believed that while hypnosis puts a person to sleep, it also induces a higher level of cognition and a higher level of neurological activity. 
  • During the actual session, the smoker is asked to imagine the numerous ill effects of smoking and the need to reduce its harmful effects on the body. This improves the willpower to quit smoking and reduces the desire. They are also advised of the benefits of quitting smoking, including longevity of life and better quality of life. The person is told that quitting smoking before 50 years of age gives a 50% chance of increasing the lifespan by 15 years. Now that is quite motivating for a lot of smokers to give up the habit.
  • It generally takes about 4 full sessions of hypnotherapy to reach a level where the patient is ready to kick the habits. Also, self hypnosis can be taught where the person can go into hypnosis on his own and enforce smoking cessation. There are even self hypnosis tapes that are available for aid.

However, a word of caution here, hypnosis is not for everybody as not everybody can be hypnotized easily and there has to be a strong belief that it will benefit, only then can smoking cessation be tried with hypnosis. It is still in the testing phase and is to be medically proven as a way to quit smoking.

People with low self esteem are 80 % more likely to criticize others & make efforts to embarrass others in order to make themselves feel better, smarter & tougher. There are better ways to feel good about yourself, one of it is end your day by affectionately looking directly into eyes of your mirror image & saying "I LOVE YOU". You will see the difference in a month.
