I am addict of Alcohol. Now I want quit this. My age is 36, weight is 72. Daily capacity 2 beer. Please advice any effective medicine.

It is best that you 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 and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. 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 take a 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. The 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. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with your wife and the children and whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast.

poor academic performance and Learning disability an eye opener

Psychologist, Mumbai
poor academic performance and Learning disability an eye opener
How often have you reprimanded your child. Write neatly! stop being so careless. Why are you so distracted. You cant remember any thing. You are hopeless at studies. And so on and so forth. Your child could be having a learning disability and you haven't even noticed it. And your young child is emotionally scarred, has lost his/her self confidence and gone into a downward spiral both academically and psychologically.

Today ld is prevalent among 12% of school going children and is often left unnoticed. If identified at an early stage it can be remidiated (if not cured).

Unidentified ld can leave a child emotionally scared and academically backward.

What is learning disability?
Learning disability is a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language -spoken or written, which may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell or do basic mathematical calculations. It is characterised by
A) disorder of attention and hyperactivity.
B) memory disorders.
C) academic characteristics (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculcia).
D) disorder of listening.
E) disorder of spoken language.
F) visual, auditory, haptic perception deficits
G) motor deficits in fine and gross motor skills

Some common signs of learning disabilities
1) does your child have a illegible handwriting,
2) mixture of cursive and print writing,
3) unfinished or omitted words in a sentence,
4) difficulty mastering rules of language,
5) remembering facts and numbers,
6) poor handwriting,
7) awkward pencil grip,
8) trouble with word problems in maths,
9) frequent reading and spelling errors (d, b) or (left, felt),
10) difficulty following sequence of directions,
11) trouble with word problem in maths
12, trouble learning maths facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, difficulty measuring things

If you notice at least four of the above signs you need to consult a professional.

Health tip to treat Depression without drugs :

Vitamin D:
Have your physician check your vitamin D level and supplement at least 2000IU of D3 or 15-20 minutes of sunlight daily. Optimal serum levels of 25(OH) Vitamin D should be 50-80 ng/ml.

Fish Oil:
Supplement omega-3 fatty acids with fish oil or eat wild salmon at least twice weekly. The brain is made up of fats and health ratios of omega 3: omega 6 fatty acids are absolutely essential to happy mood and healthy brain function.

Food Allergies:
Chronic inflammation from food sensitivities may play a role in causing symptoms of depression and anxiety. Keeping inflammation at bay is critical if you want great sleep and a happy mood! Gluten and other common foods may be causing hidden inflammation. I suggest trying the elimination of gluten, dairy and sugar for a minimum of 30 days to see if this plays a role in your mood.

Probiotics:
Unbalanced gut microbes can contribute to depression, too.

5HTP:
Aid your body's natural production of serotonin. A few essential ingredients for production of this "happy neurotransmitter" are 5HTP 100-150mg, vitamin B6 10-25mg, and Magnesium Citramate 250-500mg at bedtime.

Methyl-folate and B12:
Support methylation. Some patients respond well to sublingual methylcobalamin 2500-5000mcg and oral methyl-folate 1-5mg daily. Be sure to avoid processed cereals and breads which contain synthetic folic acid and may make mood worse.

I am boy aged 24 years, most of times I lost in my own thoughts and start talking to my self loudly, what should I do?

I am boy aged 24 years, most of times I lost in my own thoughts and start talking to my self loudly, what should I do?
If you are aware that you speak to yourself loudly then that is not a problem. But if you are not then we have a concern and you should meet a counselor immediately. Anyway you will need to speak to a counselor to find out the nature of the stress you manifest. If that person feels that you need to meet a doctor please do so without hesitation. Even if you are put on medication do not discontinue the counseling which you will require for quite some time. It will help if you know your family history and your developmental background and furnish the same to the counselor to trace the origins of the stress. Are you aware of any fear that is overwhelming you? that could just be a simple beginning to get you started. Please cooperate promptly with the therapies because the prognosis will be very good if you start early before it gets chronic.

I will suggest your father to get a pet scan done to know the stage of the disease and we can plan treatment accordingly and stent in food pipe is usually put to dilate the oesophagus where there is obstruction which might be causing pain.

I have been suffering from adult adhd (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and some form of depression for some years now. It is distracting me from career development and and my social life making me absolutely mentally paralyzed. The most active symptoms that I am facing are as below: 1. Concentration problem 2. Confused thinking 3. Facial muscle twitching and expressionless talking. 4. High speech disorder/mumbles 5. Lack of confidence 6. Sudden blankness during communication 7. Career/future anxieties 8. Sudden mood swings 9. Word salad during communication 10. Memory issues (very short memory) 11. Dullness/depression 12. Poverty of speech would really appreciate your help on this as is even developing suicidal tendencies in me and ruing everything.

The symptoms you are facing are not unusual but the treatment approach may be in question. Have you not sought psychotherapy or counseling from a professional apart from the medication? if not this is the lacuna in your recovery program that is hampering you from making adequate progress. The problem in your case is usually one of the lack of cooperation. If you are determined, a lot of good work and results can be achieved. Any way the choices you have are very limited and you must do whatever you can now, and not wait for a later period because the condition will get worse and your cooperation will be even more remote. Please take it seriously and meet with a counselor and a psychiatrist. I have assumed that you are already on medication although you have not mentioned that. But if you are not you need both therapies to successfully work through this situation. It might be worth going to a clinical psychologist for a thorough testing to be absolutely sure that it is adhd that you have and that there are no overlapping pathologies to compound the condition. It will also help gear the treatment in the desirable direction.

How can I improve my memory power on study? Besides please suggest me ways to overcome my boredom on study and I feel...
Study becomes stressful when you make unreasonable expectations. Unreasonable expectations lead to failure and boredom, just because you seem to be unable to achieve your goals. Memory in fact is affected due to stress and emotions. An anxious and depressed mind keeps your thoughts and cognition occupied and hence your brain is unable to free itself to learn new things. Improving memory is an art and it has to be practised. The first step would be an evaluation of your stress and your depressed feelings about studies. It is advisable that you consult a good psychiatrist nearby, discuss your problems in details and get treated for anxiety and depression if needed. Counselling an d therapy may help a lot in narrowing down your aims and rationalising your beliefs on success in studies. For further queries or assistance you may consult me online.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Depression is a loosely termed adjective for feeling sad and upset. If you are suffering from depression, it has to be diagnosed by a psychiatrist. Please avoid staying alone and discuss your problems with someone who is close to you.

Dear Abby. Any student can study any amount of time in a given day provide he gets enough sleep and mental rest. 7 hour sleep is ideal. One hour for entertainment. One hour for physical exercise. One hour for mental number games. That means a student can study upto 14 hours a day. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.
