I feel that some one is coming behind me to kill me in my dreams daily, Is it some kind of illness?

I feel that some one is coming behind me to kill me in my dreams daily, Is it some kind of illness?
No, it is not an illness. Your dreams reveal what is in the unconscious mind and in this case it is indicative of some danger to your life. Even if it not danger, this is certainly a manifestation of fear. If you are aware of this fear then talk to a counselor and as you deal with it these dreams may disappear. Dream interpretation is so subjective that it could men that you are very close to completing a difficult task, or that there is impending danger to not doing something important, or that you need to push yourself to complete an important decision or job.

Hello sir, I'm a 20 year old girl. I have been fairly well in my studies throughout. Since the time I had come to know that my grandpa is suffering from Multiple Myeloma (cancer), I am totally depressed and sad, thinking about him every moment, good old memories. As I am too connected to him. Although he's my grandpa, but I have considered him to be my brother as I am a single child to my parents. On 14th of December, he expired from heart failure. All he wanted is I pursue my PhD in future, and so do I wish. Problem is, I really cannot focus in my studies. All I do is try to sleep, otherwise when I am awake, just the thought of him makes me cry. I really miss him a lot. Even though I had studied and had been preparing while he was alive, what all I have studied then, I cannot recall anything. Everything seems new from the books. I am really petrified. Please suggest me Sir/Ma'am, what should be my initiative?

Dear lybrate-user, don't worry. You will come out of the present depressed situation really fast because there are no other alternatives. If you want to study and pursue phd, and if you want to live successful and peaceful life, you have to come out of the present depression. Refusing to do so, can play havoc in your life. People come and go, we should go forward. Take care.

Schizophrenia is a lifelong disease and the treatment is good for her and must be continuously monitored by the doctor. However, I advise you to take her for therapy as well to provide her with skills and techniques to understand her condition and the measures she can take to have a relatively fulfilling life. This combination will help her tremendously but do not expect great changes. It will be a gradual process but somewhat rewarding. I commend you for having lived with her and helped her this far. The journey is, however, not complete and you will need to give her all he support until the end. If you have other people at home, they could all help too. If you notice any unusual symptoms, immediately inform the doctor. I wish you had started therapy a long time ago. Anyway do seek this help from a professional comp[etent to handle psychotic disorders like schizophrenia.

Improve Your Brain Power

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,

3 smart tips for brainpower

If you're serious about improving your memory and your cognitive function, you need to know about these three important variables for brain health.

Vitamin D

Activated, vitamin D receptors increase nerve growth in your brain, and researchers have also located metabolic pathways for vitamin d in the hippocampus and cerebellum of the brain, areas that are involved in planning, processing of information, and the formation of new memories. In older adults, research has shown that low vitamin d levels are associated with poorer brain function, and increasing levels may help keep older adults mentally fit. Appropriate sun exposure is all it takes to keep your levels where they need to be for healthy brain function. If this is not an option, a safe tanning bed is the next best alternative, followed by a vitamin D3 supplement

Intermittent fasting

Contrary to popular belief, the ideal fuel for your brain is not glucose but ketones, which is the fat that your body mobilizes when you stop feeding it carbs and introduce coconut oil and other sources of healthy fats into your diet. A one-day fast can help your body to "reset" itself, and start to burn fat instead of sugar. Further, it will help you to reduce your overall calorie consumption, which promotes brain cell growth and connectivity. As part of a healthy lifestyle, however, I prefer an intermittent fasting schedule that simply calls for limiting your eating to a narrower window of time each day. By restricting your eating to a 6-8 hour window, you effectively fast 16-18 hours each day. 

Gut health

Your gut is your " second brain" and your gut bacteria transmits information to your brain via the vagus nerve, the tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem into your enteric nervous system (the nervous system of your gastrointestinal tract). There is a close connection between abnormal gut flora and abnormal brain development, and just as you have neurons in your brain, you also have neurons in your gut -- including neurons that produce neurotransmitters like serotonin, which is also found in your brain and is linked to mood. Quite simply, your gut health can impact your brain function, psyche, and behavior, as they are interconnected and interdependent in a number of different ways. In addition to avoiding sugar, one of the best ways to support gut health is to consume beneficial bacteria. You can use a probiotic supplement for this, but i'm particularly fond of using fermented vegetables, because they can deliver extraordinarily high levels of beneficial bacteria. Most people aren't aware that in a healthy serving of sauerkraut – two to three ounces or so – you're getting the equivalent of nearly 100 capsules of the highest-potency probiotic you can buy. It's clearly one of the most cost-effective alternatives.

I am a 27 yrs old male and I am occasional smoker. Please let me explain stop smoking steps. How should I stop cancer in future?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, PDO
Psychiatrist, Delhi
There are various psychological as well as medication based methods available to quit smoking, and results are the best when both of these approaches are combined. Nicotine replacement therapy, in addition to motivation enhancement therapy, would be advisable. Please get in touch with a psychiatrist for the above.

Hello Doctor, I would like to know how i can remove my mental blocks from mind as i fear sometimes to take decision that is this correct for me or not and i loose opportunities because of this. Kindly help me how i can build up my self-confidence that i lost a bit. I have motivation to achieve my life goals but some negative thoughts hinder me to take decisions on time.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology

There are two aspects I wish to educate you. 1. Mental blocks and indecisive conflicts are natural with every person. People are able to take decisions if they are experienced in an aspect. If not experienced, they cannot take any decisions, but they request help from other experienced persons. To take proper thought over decisions, you need to be experienced, otherwise you can take help from others. That is the correct attitude. There are other incidents where you are supposed to take split second decisions and I am sure that you are able to take those decisions. 2. Self confidence depends on your attitude and experience. If you are experienced in an aspect, you are already self confident. For example swimming or cycling. If you are experienced, you will have confidence in doing any tasks in that aspect. Self confidence at Every skill is determined by your experience in that particular skill. You cannot drive a car with the confidence in cycling. The confidence you are asking about here is , I think, about risk taking. That is strictly a No. Be confident only when you have experience.

Hi eating sweet things is not a problem. Masturbation is a problem if you daily do it. Once in a week is not a problem. Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of olive + 3 drops of hornbeam. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose. On empty stomach.

Hi dear, Well done! At least you came so much closer to clear that exam! You are just 18 yrs. Old and started taking so much stress and tension in your life? It's just the starting of your life, long way to go! You can prepare again and attempt it one more time. Don't lose your confidence, just boost up self to acheive more goals in you life (but at the same time keep a balance between you and your expectations). Trying again in life is not a big problem as you will get many opportunities to prove yourself, don't be dishearted! Such a hard-working person you are, keeping doing hard-work, keeping giving your performances, one day result would surely be in your favour. Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Kindly visit a psychiatrist who will after proper evaluation confirm if it is a case of anxiety or depression. As just one or two symptoms does not make it a diagnose of anxiety or depression. Medicines prescribed by doctor would help. You can along with above consult a clinical psychologist who can help you teach strategies to overcome stress and anxiety and think positively.

Hi if your girl friend left you for the sake of her father it only means that she does not give importance to you or the realtionship. The best way is to break the contact completely and focus on building a new trust worthy realtionship. But the way you have expressed the problem it seems that you have very limited friends and social circle which make you give too much of value to ant realtionship you get into. So better try to develop more friendships, increase your social circle and also start focusing on the goals in your life which can protect you from getting into such emotional tangles. If you have difficulty in doing this better consult a psychologist in your vicinity at the earliest.

People with Myocardial Infarction (Heart attack), can be depressed. But his physical condition and cardiac condition needs to be known and depressive symptoms further elaborated to suggest an appropriate antidepressant, which would most likely show significant improvement in his depressive symptoms. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy. All the best.

Dear friend, please introspect what kind of expectations from others are part of your thinking pattern. One gets angry when things are not going your way or people are not behaving as you want them too. You must realize that you cannot change anyone as they cannot change you. There is nothing wrong in throwing things as long as they are inexpensive and not directed at someone:) do not judge yourself on your short-tempered-ness, it will aggravate the problem. Sit back let things happen as they have to happen. Relax take a counseling session if you must! cheers.

HI. The best decision is move away from this negativity and people who value money more than your worth. its good that you got rid of her and you should not ever think of going back to the same person. You are very very young. A lot of girls will enter your life and you will form meaningful relations. Tell your friends strictly not to mention about her. The best way to make someone realize is MOVE ON. Focus on building a career and have meaningful relation and friendship. Soon it will be fine.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You must quit smoking immediately. Gymnasium exercises and smoking never go hand in hand. Please quit smoking. Regarding your building of muscles, you have to make a chart of food you take and then consult me again. You may have to alter your diet so that you get all the required nutrients. Also let me know for how many hours you exercise in gym, and what types of exercises you do and how many times. Take care.
