I am 20 years old I have light depression that whats going to happen internally in my body what should I do know.

General Physician,
I am 20 years old I have light depression that whats going to happen internally in my body what should I do know.
5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Your son is also having anxiety disorder. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I am 47 Yrs male. Anxiety Disorder from last one year for unnecessary reasons. Pls help. Some times panic attack.
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. Consult a psychiatrist and get remedy. All the best.

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Mental strength of each individual varies according to the parenting they get in the childhood days, school environment, behaviour of friends circle, relatives etc. Most of depressed patients are of thinking more about their sins or guilt too much. Gulity conscious is good to some extent but beyond a limit leads to lack of interest in daily activities, poor concentration, indifference towards parents, relatives and friends whom you loved much. This again makes your mind much more worse. There are few simple tips to get rid of too much sensitive nature of mind and guilty conscious through counselling. Medical required or not is judged only after consulting patient mental status either directly or online. For treatment consult a qualified homoeopath.

Panic Disorder - 12 Signs You Are Suffering From it!

Panic Disorder - 12 Signs You Are Suffering From it!

Panic disorder is a condition that strikes without reason or caution and can be serious. Indications of panic disorder usually include sudden attacks of panic and anxiety, in addition to physical side effects, such as sweating and a pounding heart. During a fit of panic, the reaction is based on the circumstances, which may not be threatening in general, but triggers a feeling of panic. After some time, a person with a panic disorder builds up a consistent fear of having another fit of anxiety, which can influence the every day functioning and lifestyle in general. Panic disorder usually occurs alongside other conditions like depression, liquor abuse, or drug abuse.

You might experience the ill effects of a panic disorder if you:

  1. Encounter frequent, unforeseen fits of anxiety that are not attached to a particular circumstance or event
  2. Stress over having another fit of anxiety
  3. Are trying to avoid the places of your precious panic attacks

The most common symptoms of a panic disorder are as follows:

  1. Trouble relaxing and feeling uneasy most of the time
  2. Beating heart or abdominal pain with a feeling of nervousness
  3. Serious irrational and emotional fear
  4. Feeling as if you are out of breath
  5. Feeling as if you are being choked or smothered
  6. Dizzy spells
  7. Trembling or shaking
  8. Sweating constantly
  9. Feeling nauseous or having a stomach ache
  10. Shivering or numbness in the fingers and toes
  11. Sudden chills or hot flashes
  12. A fear that you are losing control or are about to die

While a single panic attack may just last a couple of minutes, the impact of the experience can leave a long lasting impression and make you susceptible to more such attacks. In case you have this issue, the repetitive fits of panic take an emotional toll. The memory of the fear that you felt during these attacks can affect your self-confidence and cause interruption to your regular day-to-day existence. In the end, this prompts to the following panic disorder effects:

  1. Expectant uneasiness: Instead of feeling like yourself in the middle of panic attacks, you feel tensed and on edge. This uneasiness originates from a dread of having future attacks of anxiety. This fear is seen more often than not, and can be extremely disabling at times.
  2. Phobic avoidance: You start to stay away from specific circumstances or situations. This might happen since you are maintaining a strategic distance because of your previous panic attack. On the other hand, you may stay away from areas where escape would be troublesome or help would be inaccessible in case you had a fit of panic.
  3. Medicines: Medicines can be used to control or decrease a majority of the side effects of panic disorder. Even if medicines do not form a part of the main treatment, when combined with other treatments, medicines are very effective. Eg. therapy and lifestyle changes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

First reason you already explained smoking, second main reason for this is iron deficiency which leads to dehydration by ceasing mucus production, smoking also causes dryness, so keep your throat hydrated with fresh fruits with pulp like banana, guava, mango chickoo, papaya, do not take cold drinks, junk food, start with iron rich diet, honey jaggery, raisins and most imprtant in your case do not do salt water gargling, this will further dehydrate your throat.

It is upto you , to take or not to take the negative opinions or comments of others. You may dump it in a dustbin outside your home. Tell them that you dont think that they are describing you..as you know how you are people are free to criticize or tease....but that should not effect your life. Just show them that you do not care abt it and are not affected by it and they will gradually stop!

He is very week having very low stamina .He is deeply addict for cigarette .please suggest me homeopathic medicine for quitting this smoking problem.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User, He may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. He could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking he will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever he faces any tense situation. Here lies his real test. He will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, he can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture DAPHNE INDICA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce his craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking he should take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing his teeth.
