I am 21 years old boy. Due to some depression I am smoking daily basis. How much it can harm me.

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user, if you know that excessive smoking is due to depression then that should be dealt with first. As depression is caused due to an imbalance of a chemical in the brain, hence to restore that balance medicines would be required and simultaneously we can also deal with your smoking problem too. As per your question regarding how much smoking could harm you. Smoking might be helping you to release your tensions and that is the reason you might be smoking on a daily basis, but it is only temporary and in turn harms your body too. If it could help people in releasing tension then it would have been prescribed by doctors as a medicine but unfortunately it doesn't:) hope you find this answer useful.

I agree that this is not that serious a problem. There have been many cases of relationships developing through these social networks, which have destroyed many families. But I like that in your case you seem to have your head on your shoulders and seem to be a sensible girl. Your husband may be feeling insecure and is probably taking precautionary measures. You must have a serious talk with him about being bored at home the whole day and having nothing to do. He may suggest some good activities that will help you. Being idle is the devil?s workshop and that could be worse. It is also very difficult for him to keep tabs on you, if he travels out of the country so often. However, it still does not help to do things behind his back when he doesn?t like it. There is a trust problem, and either it his difficulty to trust you or you have given him cause for concern. If it is the latter, you must assure him. Sometimes, this is a good sign of how much he wants you all for himself, but to control you over this matter may be a bit far-fetched. Negotiate with him and find a via media approach. My suggestion is to tell him that he can check all your contacts and correspondence, until he is really assured and can trust you completely. Even when he is out of the country, keep everything for him to see as it is without any editing. Share the password so that he can examine the interactions even when he is away to be able to trust you. You must also tell your contacts not to address you with endearments that may be misunderstood, especially by your in-laws (as an excuse). I recommend that you find something that is not threatening to him and do that instead. For example, meet with your friends over meals, start a ladies? club, a women?s clubs, social get-togethers etc.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help me.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free revert and we could work together for few weeks to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Hello. Smoking causes about 9 out of 10 of all lung cancer deaths in men and women. -Smokers are more likely than nonsmokers to develop heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. -Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body (Bladder, Blood (acute myeloid leukemia), Cervix, Colon and rectum (colorectal), Esophagus, Kidney and ureter, Larynx, Liver, Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils), Pancreas, Stomach, Trachea, bronchus, and lung. -Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. -Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. -Smoking can affect bone health. -Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. -Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. -Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. -Nicotine (which is present in cigarette) stimulates the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and acetylcholine, all of which have been linked to wakefulness, and blood nicotine levels of smokers are highest at bedtime. Thus, smokers spent more time in light sleep and less time in deep sleep. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you to get rid of your habit of smoking and it’s side-effects. Schwabe's Daphne Indica/ thrice daily for 3 months. After a month, report back to me.

Drinking coffee prevents Parkinson’s disease

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Nicotine present in the tobacco has been used for its medicinal value for quite some time for diseases like Parkinson’s disease and ulcerative colitis. A study from University of Miami School of Medicine, USA, now has shown that people from families prone to Parkinson’s disease are less likely to develop the disease if they drink coffee on a regular basis.

Both coffee and nicotine have a link with dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical that decreases in patients with Parkinson’s disease. It is possible that people who are going to have Parkinson’s disease have lower levels of dopamine. Those with low levels of dopamine may be more likely to enjoy caffeine.

Parkinson’s disease is caused when brain cells that produce dopamine die. The disease is progressive, affecting about one percent of people older than 65. Symptoms start out with shaking and can progress to paralysis. There is no cure, although a number of drugs can make symptoms better for a time.

You are going through anxiety and panic attacks. If it's not taken a deep root within your system then you can benefit from counselling. It will teach you ways to respond in which you remain in control of yourself and different and safer ways to show your displeasure to others. But if the problem is deep seated and chronic, you can need psychiatric treatment additionally. But you must start exercises and yoga daily basis, with pranayam and meditation.

You are in your forties only. You should try doing something. Some kind of work or small business. This will give you your lost self-esteem. Also try to get a counseling done. Do not unnecessarily torture yourself. Find your own happiness in whatever way.

Even Inn education matter the same is valid. Interest needs to be created. Attitude helps you to like what you are doing. I suggest online counselling and career development. Take care.

I am not too clear about some aspects of your question. First of all, this is not a compatible marriage due to the age difference and that this'kid' is still a minor and this whole matter is illegal. Just because no one else will marry you it does not mean that you should sleep with anyone who is there. It is also not true that no one will marry you: there are plenty of people around who will marry you. It is pure superstition and irrational conclusions. If you are pregnant, you can have the child and even if it is out-of-wedlock, and even after that you can get married to someone else but not to this boy. He is already setting terms and conditions without even being matured. At any cost, you must get out of this arrangement, whatever people say and think. This is illegal and grossly inappropriate. At least you should be sensible about all this although already you have not acted sensibly while allowing sexual contact.

Treatment for thalassemia major often involves regular blood transfusions and folate supplements. If you receive blood transfusions, you should not take iron supplements. Doing so can cause a high amount of iron to build up in the body, which can be harmful. Persons who receive a lot of blood transfusions need a treatment called chelation therapy. This is done to remove excess iron from the body. A bone marrow transplant may help treat the disease in some patients, especially children.

Obviously if you do not even study your results will reflect that. The stress of depression maybe affecting your study program. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. As regards depression kindly do the following: I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue 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 scotching 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
