Tobacco - How Yoga Can Help You Quit it?

A lot of smokers now are well aware of the dangers of smoking, but yet they find it hard to quit this habit. In fact, even repeated attempts to quit smoking fail after a few days as they tend to give in to a variety of withdrawal symptoms. In case you are searching for a permanent solution to de-focus and avoid tobacco intake, yoga is the way to venture out of the smoke and free yourself of the addiction.

Compelling well-being programs that plan to improve people and bring back their focus on things that help them lead a solid and happy life can be sought. In this manner, their friends and families get a chance to inhale fresh air as well. Yoga is one such measure which can be used.

Here are a couple of yoga poses that are helpful in getting rid of tobacco addiction:

  1. Kapal bhati pranayama (skull shining breathing procedure): This asana tends to enhance the blood flow, improve the sensory system, restore brain cells and quiet the mind. This pranayama likewise clears the nadis (the energy channels) and fights the temptation of smoking.
  2. Nadi shodhan pranayama (alternate nostril breathing procedure): Discharge accumulated stress, quiet your brain, sanitise and adjust your naadis (unobtrusive energy channels) with this pranayama. The nadi shodhan pranayama works effectively for some respiratory problems and helps you cope with your addiction of tobacco.
  3. Bhujanagasana (cobra posture): The cobra posture improves blood circulation and expands your abdomen. It lessens exhaustion and is additionally useful for people with respiratory illnesses. This yoga acts as a stress reliever and minimises the desire of smoking.
  4. Setu bandhasana (bridge posture): The bridge posture opens up the lungs and enhances the supply of oxygen to the body. It additionally extends different parts of the body, quiets the mind, diminishes tension, depression and stress, which keeps you far from smoking.
  5. Shishuasana (child posture): The child posture unwinds the body, quiets down the nervous system and eases the body from stress.
  6. Trikonasana (triangle posture): The triangle posture extends and strengthens different parts of the body. This yoga pose is an extremely powerful physical and mental balance for the body. It also diminishes nervousness and stress, and helps you fight the desire of tobacco.
  7. Sarvangasana (bear stand): The shoulder stand supplies the mind with more blood and also calms it down. It additionally mitigates stress and misery, thereby killing the desire of smoking.
  8. Shavasana (corpse posture): The corpse stance should be performed last as it releases the body into a profound, reflective condition of rest and alleviates tension. This yoga posture restores the body and diminishes stress and tension.

Yoga is a very beneficial form of releasing stress and tension as well as your addictions. It takes a long time to show results but the results are long-lasting and highly effective.

Take A Moment - Why It Is Important For Your Mental Health?

The pressing urge to do loads in a short span of time, to plan life in a day, to see dreams unfurl into reality at the slightest of efforts inundates millions across the world. It is neither about the goals one sets before oneself nor about rational expectations arising from the awareness of one's capabilities. The problem runs deeper. Happiness and health are two elemental factors discerning the quality of your life. Happiness is directly proportional to your personal health. Neglecting one will affect the other. The best way to cope in the given situation is to take a detour from the overriding rat race. While others are in a hurry, you must slow down and care to nurture your mind and body.

Take a look at the benefits of slowing down:

  1. It will give you ample time to interact: Moving out of your comfort zone in order to exchange ideas with colleagues or friends plays an eminent role in shaping your personality. Interaction provides a person with food for thought. Therefore slowing down a little will encourage a free flow of countless ideas.
  2. It will encourage you to pursue a hobby: Hobbies keep you alive. You should take out time to pursue an interest. This is a tried and tested way of rekindling happiness in one's life.
  3. It will make you attentive towards others: A fast life shelters you within its clutches. You fail to take note of the changes in and around you. Going slow will let you take care of your loved ones.
  4. It will enable you to see your inimitability: Once you slow down, you'll find time to introspect and retrospect as well. A person can come to realize how unique he or she is in this vast scope of things.
  5. It will improve your sex life: Dopamine is the chief chemical that regulates a person's sexual desires. Increased levels of stress can hamper the production of dopamine making you lax about sex. Taking an easy pace can add zing to your sex life.
  6. It will keep your heart healthy: Being overly hyper about delay subjects you to the risk of heart diseases. You should never be frantic about plans; this can lead to high blood pressure or can even cause severe harm to your heart health.

Bipolar Disorder - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Bipolar Disorder - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Bipolar disorder is a condition where the patient may go through certain periods of extreme happiness and joy which is known as mania. On the other hand, there may be other periods where the patient may be extremely sad and depressed and even suicidal.

In some individuals, these phases may last quite long whereas, in others, they may change very quickly. However, there are certain common symptoms displayed by patients with bipolar disorder. Let's look at a few of them.

  • Feeling extremely happy, to the point of being careless - Certain patients, at the onset of bipolar disorder, will feel extremely happy and have their sense of judgment hampered. When patients feel very elated without proper context, or for very small reasons, it could be an indication that the person is experiencing mania.
  • Feeling extremely depressed - Similarly, on the other end of the spectrum, if a person feels extremely depressed without an appropriate reason, it may be due to bipolar disorder. Also, the severity of depression and the length of time for which a person experiences it is also an indicator of the condition.
  • Lack of interest in activities which formerly interested you - You may suddenly lose interest in an activity that genuinely interested you earlier. This may include your profession or hobbies.
  • Loss of appetite during the depression phases - During the phases of depression or sadness, which may sometimes last for months, a person may rapidly lose weight due to lack of interest in food. Even for patients who have shorter cycles of changes lasting for only a few weeks, this will be noticeable.
  • Extreme restlessness and lack of sleep during the manic phases - When the person enters a manic or happy cycle, it may trigger over enthusiasm, restlessness and lack of sleep. This, like the depression phase, will also vary from patient to patient and may continue for the entire duration of the phase. A jump from a depression cycle into this phase will be definitely noticed by others.


If a few of these symptoms are detected, then the patient should be taken to a mental health professional for appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

Anxiety and depression often go together. The tremors could be related to hysterical behaviour and if you don't seek help it could only get worse. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am a 30 year old man. I have been suffering from fear and panic attack for ten years. Before that I used to have anxiety and I talked out myself and got rid of that often. Then I tried yoga to help myself and it went well for some months. Then one day I got panic attack in my thoughts and this time it completely overwhelmed me. I could not talk myself out of this and my body become very numb after this ,it became too difficult for me to concentrate in any work. Socially I used to be not that active and it became very difficult for me to socialize specially with girls. Old fears are now rises in terms of magnitude. I can't feel my breath. I feel my breathing mostly in upper chaste. Hard work, physical labor are no more luxury for me. Even in my youth my battery level is always drained out. Please suggest me some therapy and medication that can give me back my mojo. I feel myself not living my fullest.

It is very significant that you should have this at the time and age when you were in your late adolescence. There is something related to fear from your childhood that is surfacing seeking a resolution. Go to a counselor immediately and work out this fear. Anxiety is abnormal fear, or you are reacting to normal fear in an abnormal way. At your age the hormones will also trouble you to cause more difficulties, which is why it is so recent. It generally lasts for two years but if you do not resolve it now, you might carry a permanent negative trait into adulthood. In the meantime please do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. You may ask your parents about your developmental milestones, including that of your prenatal life to help with the therapy. Obviously meeting members of the opposite sex will make it even worse. You can attend personality development courses, public speaking courses, good conversational courses etc. to further boost your confidence.

Understand The Correlation Between Stress And HIV!

Understand The Correlation Between Stress And HIV!

Stress is a major factor that leads to various complications in most of the health conditions. Hence, it is essential to deal with stress because doctors emphasize that if you can manage your stress, then you are already halfway through the treatment. But with HIV building up in your body it can be challenging to stay stress-free.

Effect of stress on HIV patients
Evidence has been found after extensive research that death may increase at times by 22% when an HIV patient starts taking lots of stress. So you can guess from the number what a huge impact stress has on HIV. Some other studies had brought to light a different angle of the effect caused by stress on HIV. It is said that the CD4 count and viral load increases by many folds in patients who have HIV and are under stressful conditions which have made them fall into the clutches of depression.

Steps that can be taken to curb stress-

  1. As the first step, you must identify the reasons or factors that are leading you to take the stress. These factors may be straightforward ones and something from your day-to-day activities. For instance, some might feel depressed about consuming too many medicines for HIV on a daily basis while some others might feel stress out because of the financial strain imposed by the disease. Sometimes the stress results from emotional reasons like departing from a loved one or being separated from the mainstream life.
  2. Once you have identified the reason behind your stress, you must put in some effort to get back to your daily routine and make your day organized. Mostly, it happens that people tend to extend their hours of regular activities and mess up with their biological clock. This should be avoided. Always keep fixed hours for your sleep, work and other activities. Add appropriate physical activities and proper diet to your routine which will help with your general health and help with managing stress.
  3. You must also learn to handle your emotions. Seek help in this case by attending counseling sessions with trained professional, especially when it comes to managing your sex life. Talk to your doctor and get all your questions answered because sometimes lack of knowledge leads to the development of doubts which lead to anxiety and then depression. And most importantly, spend time with your loved ones to obtain complete stress relief. This is one of the best methods to have a positive outlook on life while suffering from HIV.

So, while under treatment for HIV make an effort to avoid stress entirely to improve the situation. Follow the advice of your doctor, take the necessary medications and adopt lifestyle changes to lead a happy life.

The fact is that there is a high correlation between nicotine abuse and bipolar disorder. This is merely an association and association does not prove causation. Hence, while stopping nicotine will definitely impact your health in a positive manner, you will need to do much more to reverse your disorders. In a case such as yours, I would include other positive lifestyle changes and plan a comprehensive management of metabolic and Hormonal imbalances.

Best Homeopathic Medicines For Depression!

Best Homeopathic Medicines For Depression!

Most people have felt depressed in their lives some time or the other. Depression can be a natural reaction to failure, injured self-esteem or loss but when the severity of the condition increases it is diagnosed as 'clinical' or 'major'. Subtle signs of depression usually go unnoticed because it is difficult to determine whether it is a phase or a chronic condition. It is important to recognize the symptoms of depression and get help at the earliest.

Some major symptoms are consistent sadness, feeling hopeless, thoughts of suicide, uninterested in life, low on energy, a persistent physical trauma that does not respond to medications.

Homeopathic Treatment

There are efficient homeopathic medicines that can work to reduce the illness, especially if treated in the early stages. Homeopathy is a reliable path to follow because it does not have any side effects, unlike antidepressants that tend to numb people. Here is a comprehensive list of homeopathic medicines which most doctors are likely to recommend for treating depression.

  • Arsenicum album - This medicine is prescribed to control the symptoms like diarrhea, gastric problems, indigestion which patients often suffer from as a result of intense anxiety. Patients, appropriate for this medicine tend to be fastidious and restless. It is made of white arsenic and should be taken in prescribed potency because an overdose can cause gastroenteritis.
  • Natrum muriaticum - This homeopathic treatment is useful for mild depression or for people suffering extreme bereavement due to loss or a sudden shock.
  • Sepia - This medicine is beneficial to women suffering from postpartum depression (sadness or emotional confliction after giving birth) and menopause. Feeling of solitude and hopelessness with no energy to continue with life are some common symptoms that can be reduced with Sepia.

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. It is not a heart problem, but a mind problem. Anxxiety and Panic occurs due to reduced serotonergic transmission in the mind. Since all organs have connections from the mind, when you have anxiety and panic there are changes in the BP/ and pulse rate. It is not a primary cardiac problem. So consult a psychiatrist and get your anxiety and panic treated.

Do not do anything. Relax. And just try to understand what I am trying to say below. Really try to understand. Just try to understand. You think you are depressed, suffering from anxiety and hence you keep getting negative thoughts: "I have low self esteem" "I will not be able to understand it" "I hate studying" "I do not have inner piece" Right? OK, let me say that again. You first think you are 'depressed' 'suffering from anxiety' and 'hence you keep getting negative thoughts' So when those negative thoughts increase. Like "I have low self esteem" "I will not be able to understand it" "I hate studying" "I do not have inner peace" you 'permit' them to hang around. Because they are 'justified'you are depressed after all "So no wonder such thoughts will come. This is not a 'mistake' you are committing. This is what's happening. That's how the process works. Negative thoughts come, often without any rhyme or reason. Most often we ignore them like we would ignore street noise while speaking on the phone. But at one point, we decide to dwell on them. We pay attention to them. Give them our energy. They gain power. Then we also decide that this must be a permanent "condition" If you are well read, then you might even give it a name like 'depression' and a cause like 'low self esteem' We assume that we feel and then think. But here's the surprise. It's the other way round. We feel our thinking. Two people see the same person and get different feelings. Because their thoughts about that person, or that circumstance are different. Maybe the thoughts come unconsciously. But they do come. And then we feel. We are not feeling other people or circumstances. We are feeling our thoughts about those people or circumstances. Let the line above sink in. It's not a theory. It's the truth. Now why are the thoughts different? Why do they become negative? Why positive? Who knows? Even if you do know ("when you were 4 years old, your Mom said .which left a trauma on you. Due to which you started doing .in school. Which was then reinforced and became part of your conditioning.) what's the use? You will find the SOURCE of your negative thoughts and might feel 'justified'but that will not make the thought go away. Plus there is no ONE way how the negative or positive thoughts come - which you will then "control" They keep arising like a radio playing in the background. You cannot decide which songs will play. But you do decide which songs to pay attention to. Sometimes the song is really irritating and nasty. Just cannot get it out of your head. But you do not diagnose yourself with a condition like "songression" and decide to listen to other songs etc. If you do that, the more you try, more the song will stick. We intuitively understand that. So we simply ignore the song, hard though it may be. We refuse to give them more energy. We know that's the only way. We know that's the natural way. So we cannot control which thoughts will arise. But we control which thoughts we choose to DWELL on. And then we will get the equivalent feelings. You dwell longer. Feelings stay longer. Then you think the feelings are real. No they are simply the result of the thoughts you chose to dwell on. Now you might think that this is all a load of BS. So tomorrow when you will again get some unwanted, useless, undesired, negative thoughts, you might choose to dwell on them. Cool! You might think that 'ignoring' will work only for 'trivial' cases, and that your's is a very serious case. That these thoughts cannot be ignored. So you will dwell on them. Cool! Or you might choose to ignore them. Cool! Or you might want to visit a psychiatrist and pop some pills and then choose to ignore them, because you think 'now you can ignore them' Or you might want to undergo some therapy. And then 'think' that that 'they are losing power' and hence you 'can now ignore them' and then choose to ignore them. Whatever your diagnosis or 'solution' is, the cure will be when the thoughts some come. And you choose to ignore them. See that you are not dealing with 'depression' You are simply always dealing with 'thoughts' that are depressing. RIGHT NOW. From moment to moment. And continuously making the choice. RIGHT NOW. To dwell on them. From moment to moment. Next time they come, you always have the freedom to ask: "Do I want to dwell on them? You cannot control the initiation of the loop, but you can decide when to break it. Note 1: This answer might be controversial, and I might get comments that 'depression' is a physical condition. It absolutely is. Like blushing causes blood to rush to your face. Mental conditions can manifest physically and vice versa. The point is no matter how old the physical condition, the thoughts are still being generated in the moment. You are free to ignore the negative thoughts or think that you cannot. I have no power to stop you. Whatever you choose to think, you will experience exactly that. Note 2: Ignoring negative thoughts should not be confused with 'denial' Denial is when you refuse to accept that you are getting negative thoughts, and the subsequent negative feelings. To pretend that everything is hunky dory. You are actually giving energy by labelling them as 'negative' being afraid enough to have to 'deny their existence' and then concoct some positive thoughts in order to justify that denial or use some 'technique' etc etc etc. That's a lot of invested energy! You then make the problem worse. I am saying that the negative thoughts will pop up sometimes, and they will cause negative feelings too. Nothing to resist. But if you want to, you can choose to simply ignore them. That's all. Just read this and implement in your life. Thank you all the best.

Bipolar is fed by anger. It is time you went for psychotherapy along with the medication. The medication will always have side-effects, which cannot be avoided. It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

I proposed the girl and she also love me but when I reach to her house she doesn't talk to me. And she avoid me in presence of his family members. Then I got depressed. I think she loves me or not. But I believe she loves me so much but when she does not talk to me I become worried. Why this happened?

It's very simple. She likes you. But she might not be in love with you. Infact love requires understanding between the two partners. It's not like look at someone e and you think that the other person has smiled means she/he loves you. She might be liking so many other people too. In case you want her to like you. You should go and start talking to her.
