Dear Lybrate user. Your anxiety could be due to stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Hi, you are weak you should take proper diet you take 5 meals in a day in frequent intervals and don't skip breakfast. Include fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Include protein rich food in your diet. Take healthy and heavy breakfast. You need to go for meditation to reduce your stress and to build up your stamina as well to feel strong from within.

Dear Sandhya, It is sad that marital life is completed. But marital life alone, is not your full life. It is only a part of life. You have parents, friends, uncles, aunts, cousins, may be brothers and sisters also. You are still young. You can even try to restart marital life. You can discuss with people like you living with thoughts only. When you think of many different ways of dealing with the problem, you will feel better. What are your phobias and fears?

Please get yourself evaluated thoroughly by medical expert to rule out any medical problem. In case that is ruled out, then this is a case of Anxiety which leads to Panic attack and shows in form of breathlessness. Anxiety issues can be helped effectively by getting Jacobson Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy from a psychologist. It can be taught by them ad you can practice at home. It is a therapy where each and every muscle of body is relaxed and with continuous practice, this helps in easing the anxiety. Other method is hypnotherapy to help find the root cause of anxiety as there are many reasons for anxiety to be present. Hypnotherapy is a well known tool for helping in anxiety.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Doctors some days ago I have asked for medicine for removing habits for smoking and drinking but is there any medicine jisko power form me kisi bhi food me mix kar ke dia jaa sakke. please help I am really worried for my papa. Recently my tau ji passed away due to cancer.

if your dad is not suffering from Kidney stones or gall bladder stones, than mix 1 gram lime stone (choona) in 100 gram curd and ask him to eat. lime stone is the best medicine to heal the damage done by alcohol, secondly talk to your father about the horrors of smoking, make him emotional, this is the best way. Some natural tips: The grape diet can actually help you to get rid of alcohol cravings. It is one of the most popular home remedies for quitting alcohol. In this diet, you have to eat grapes for about 25 days. You are not allowed to eat anything else. Wines are made of grapes and if you eat them, you will not crave for alcohol at all. This diet should be followed for about a month in order to leave alcohol completely. This will surely work for you! However if you feel unwell in the middle of this diet then it is advisable that you should discontinue. Dates are one of the oldest and most popular home remedy for getting rid of alcoholism. If you are not able to quit alcohol then this will help you to get rid of it instantly. Alcoholism can be easily treated with the help of dates. You can rub some dates in water and drink the solution twice or thrice in a day. This will help you to get rid of alcohol completely. This remedy has been used by many people and it worked wonders too! You would need to drink the solution for a month in order to see visible results. Alcohol addition is something that affects your body in a negative way. So, have dates as much as you can! Bitter gourd can help you get rid of alcohol and also cure your damaged kidney. alcohol damages the kidney which can also lead to death. You can have bitter gourd juice early in the morning on a daily basis in order to quit alcohol. This remedy will surely work as it has worked for other people. The taste is bitter and not great but you can mix the juice with buttermilk for better taste. Thanks Consult me if still he drinks

I am not able to concentrate on anything. I have frequent headaches. My highers studies (research) are in a complete mess. I had a breakup recently after a long relationship just before it was time to get married. I dont like doing anything. I can hardly eat or sleep. I forget things and do stuffs rather weirdly. Is it affecting my mental status? Any medicine? I want my life back on track! Please advise.

You are emotionally distraught. Perhaps the recent breakup may be a compelling cause, especially since it was a long courtship and collapsed so close to marriage. Look at how angry you are, and the quicker you deal with that, the faster your recovery. Not expressing anger is one aspect of the problem, but when anger is turned inwards, it can make you depressed. The signs are already manifesting in you. Emotions that have not been expressed can play havoc with balance and mental stability. You have to put your life back on track but you need help and support. Do seek the counsel of a therapist and discuss all that is disturbing you to put the zip back into your life. If the counselor feels that you need some medication, s/he will recommend you to a psychiatrist. Do not delay and do cooperate with the therapy, completely.

I have been in a relation with a guy who after one month of relation told me that his family has already fixed my marriage to his Bhabhi s sister due to family issues. And he is from a very rich family background and small caste . And he respects his family a lot and scared of his family. I had told him that u have to try for me in ur family and convince them . And now he told me that he asked abt me in his family but they said no and he has to marry that girl.And he was veri firm on it. What should I do? should I be rigid to convince his parents or jus be silent . Now its been 2.5 years v in a relation. And v had an amazing compatability

Please gracefully accept the fact that you are no longer a contender for the post of his wife. You tried your best to convince him and he did not budge. That is not your or his fault. Circumstances are to blame and there is no use blaming circumstances. Concentrate on your education and career. Take care.

My sister having hearing and speaking problems from birth. She's now 18 years old. Is it possible to rectify her problems? How much it will cost?

Dear lybrate-user it's depends on hearing loss and how much she benefits with the hearing aid. There are hearing aids and cochlear implants are available for the severe to profound loss also. Since the age is 18 it is difficult to achieve speech in this age. Usually it's easy to improve speech in younger age. If at all you go for hearing aid or implant which will make them aware of the sound but it will not improve the speech understanding and speaking much at this age. My advice is go go for hearing aid and go for listening training to improve the awareness of the sound.

My mother has a depression .She is going through with some hallucinations like to see colours by watching video songs n movies .She called her siblings n friends when she feel something is going wrong n shouting start for 1-2 hrs until she feel relaxed .Sometimes she feel someone in home is doing black magic . What to do doctor HELP her .EVERY YEAR she has a same problem For 2--3 months.

It is much more than depression. She is being treated for psychosis. Are you keeping the doctor informed of these developments? I suggest that you meet with a counselor too to help her with skills to understand the disease and what to do when she has certain impulses. She needs to bring in some discipline into her life, set up certain routines, and follow a tight time-schedule. There must be some interesting activities she needs to do every day. She must exercise both Yoga and some aerobic ones too. Gradually help her meet people. Over a period of time these episodes will disappear with this kind of follow up. If she loves certain hobbies, facilitate that. Let her become productive and occupied with something constructive. If she cooperates, maybe she could be weaned off of the medication to a lower dose. Please do not neglect this any further. At her age she could only degenerate without the combination therapy approach.

My aunt is very sweet and loving. But on the contrary she gets violent even at 60 and hardly can control her anger. At times she gets very depressed about life and actually it is increasing day by day and she keeps ruminating over the past and recalling the past unpleasant memories. She feels alienated but it is not so. It is in her thought process. Everyone in the family loves n cares for her but she feels insecure. And one thing lastly she gets panicky about petty matters.

Your aunt is becoming old now and life becomes more difficult at this age. It becomes difficult for a person, to see that the body and mind is getting older. Older people have lesser patience. Because of this she might be feeling frustrated and sad. She might be having some health issues, which may be making her insecure and angry. Encourage her to talk about her past life experiences and when she is ruminating over it, validate her feelings. Try to understand the situations from her view point. All she needs is more love and respect. Give her responsibilities that she can shoulder. Involve her in family decisions. Make her feel important. Talk to her about "letting go" of things so that she will not keep worrying unnecessarily. Encourage her to pursue some hobbies or activities she could not undertake till now. Encourage her to have her own social circle. She needs to understand that if she becomes more positive and flexible about life, she can still enjoy life to the fullest and ultimately her anger will reduce.

Sir I m B. Tech student. How to increase my memory? I am 25 years old. Please solve my problem or give me solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Healthy and balanced diet is important in reducing risk of memory loss. Green leafy vegetables reduce the risk of decline of memory with age. Good social relationships and interactions can help reduce risk of memory loss. Brain activity should be maintained. This can be regular reading, writing, learning a new skill, or instrument, doing crossword or puzzles etc. stimulates brain cells and lower risk of memory loss. For further queries get back to me.

Hi, I am very depressed from last 4-5 months and even taken medicines for stress and depression as well. It was ok for some time when i took one month break but after joining the work it again started, I am thinking so much negative and always think to quit job and sit idle or change the carrier where there is less pressure. I don't know, very confused in the life now. Please advice. Thanks.

You better consult a good homoeopath for this. Because depressed patients need to be cured as a person.Not as a patient to the doctor.This may happen to you may be because of you may not be able to handle loads of work together.Or may be another reason.
