Dear lybrate user. The addiction is your own creation and therefore there is no use worrying about it now. Because of the addiction you wasted time. Accept it and just appear in exam. Worrying about could further reduce your chances of passing. After the exam please go for counselling. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I am. Addicts of chewing tobacco Trying to quit. Is there any problem if quit suddenly. Is there any oral treatment. For my tough n. Cheeks.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can meet with an ENT specialist and determine what to do with your tongue and cheek, if there is any problem there. Chewing pan is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral sub mucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the sub mucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get into regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred. If he is unable to give it up on his own, he needs to be admitted into a rehabilitation center nearby until he is completely out of it. They will have him deal with all other issues also and so his anger outbursts will also get attention. The anger may or may not have anything to do with the addiction but still it is better he deals with it in the course of his therapy. Even after he comes out of the center, he must continue therapy and attend Smokers Anonymous meetings regularly.

I can not understanding what am studying. My exams are near. What I studied is forgetting. What I want to do?

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Best Homeopathic Remedies To Treat Epilepsy!

Best Homeopathic Remedies To Treat Epilepsy!

Epilepsy is a disease that affects the brain's nerve cells and triggers the release of abnormal electrical signals. This can cause temporary malfunctioning of the other brain cells and result in sudden loss of consciousness. Epilepsy can affect both children and adults.

Epilepsy can be treated in a number of ways. One of the most preferred forms of treatment is homeopathy. Homeopathy addresses both the physical symptoms of the disease and the underlying factors triggering it. Another big advantage of homeopathic treatment is that it has negligible side effects.

A few homeopathic remedies that can be used to treat epilepsy are:

  • Cicuta: Cicuta is very effective when used to treat cases of epilepsy where convulsions are marked by violent, body distortions. This can include the horrific backward bending of the spine. These convulsions also make the person's face turn blue and trigger a locked jaw. This can also be used to effectively treat epilepsy cases triggered by head injuries and worms.
  • Artemisia Vulgaris: This is used to often treat cases of Petit Mal Epilepsy which are characterized by staring into space, leaning forwards or backwards and stopping a sentence abruptly. It also addresses fear that triggers epileptic attacks.
  • Stramonium: Convulsions triggered by exposure to bright lights or shiny objects can be treated with this homeopathic remedy. In such cases, the patient may not lose consciousness but experiences jerks in the muscles of the upper body.
  • Cuprum Met: This homeopathic remedy is used to treat seizures that are preceded by experiencing an aura in the knees. Other symptoms that characterize this sort of an epileptic attack are spasms that begin in the fingers and toes and gradually spread to the rest of the body and jerking of muscles. This can also be used to treat convulsions that accompany menstruation and follow the delivery of a baby.
  • Bufo Rana: Not all epileptic attacks occur you are awake. Attacks that occur in your sleep can be treated with bufo rana. Such epileptic attacks are accompanied by experiencing an aura in the genital regions. This is especially helpful for women who experience seizures during menstruation.
  • Hyoscyamus: Some epileptic fits are followed by a deep sleep. This type of epileptic attacks can be treated with Hyoscyamus. Other symptoms addresses by this homeopathic medicine are fidgeting with bed clothes, fidgeting with fingers and muscular twitching.

These homeopathic remedies can be taken on their own or in combination with other medicines. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

I think my problem is related to psychiatrist or psychologist - I m not sure. Need that clarity. For long, I have been finding myself dull, not interested in life or work. At times I don't remember what I discussed with someone or I have promised to do. I even tend to forget things, tasks. I don't find energy in myself to do something or initiate something other than my regular office job or mandatory things required to do at home. Though I try but I don't enjoy with people companies or with family if I go outside. Feels depressed from a long time now. Sometimes have a pain at back of neck where the head joins but not always. There is a history of last 7 years when I got married and in parallel I switched job. One. My wife was not able to align with my side of family and in all that jugglery it have me a lot of stress. Though I was hyper active in my life before marriage foreg doing gym, joining dance class, going parties, doing adventurous activities but suddenly everything came to stop as she was and is not interested in any playful activity nor she was ever supportive if I propose to do the same. It continuously added onto my stress and my physical health deteriorated. Though my wife situation with my side of family improved now but now I m not able to aggregate any energy to do outside fun activities. Romance and sex also was hardly present between us which also caused added stress and life is running as it is as if I m living for some reason that is our daughter. Two. My job switch at the same time. I moved from a big firm to a small family company at the same time. The environment was too demanding and the boss behavior was unbearable. It was all time shouting, screaming environment, a lot of micro management was done from his side - which caused me a lot of stress. Though I tried to leave the job many times - resigned 3 times - but he did not allowed me to leave and created an environment that I could not leave it. But it never improved the situation. He has been very active to track our cvs on all job sites and everytime used to show printouts of our cv and forced us to remove the profiles. Though I have been finally able to quit last year still jobless that time. But now my new job does not have that kind of environment. And I feel lot relieved. But that previous job has created such an impact on my mental status that I m still struggling with my mental strengths, energy levels, no concentration power, low remembrance and a lost will-power that I used to have in ample. (symptoms mentioned in 1st para). Looking for some guidance how to come back to a better life and get back my will power, concentration power, stamina, remembrance power and so a happy un- depressed life.

Dear, all the problems you have mentioned in your quesion is related to attitude and related mood. If your attitude is not right, everything you look into will present itself as dull. That includes your body. You are feeling dull because you are not properly looking into the eventualities. Positive thinking will help you a lot. I suggest you to consult a psychologist. Take care.

I am feeling Killing stress. Some pressure in mind even thought to suicide how can be comfortable.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
The word stress is many a times loosely used. You seem to be depressed, as suicidal ideas are present in severe depression. The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.

IMPROVE YOUR CONCENTRATION

PG Hom, London, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
IMPROVE YOUR CONCENTRATION

with the exams approaching, the pressure increasing and the anxiety reaching the pinnacle; being able to concentrate on what you study and remembering it is the most important concern of the hour.

 Here are some tips which will help you to concentrate on your studies and remember whatever you have studied:-

* keep your cell phone aside. These days, the cell phone addiction has become more difficult to cure than any other addiction. It is better to switch off your cell phone and keep it in a place far from your reach so that you can concentrate on what you are needed to concentrate on rather than what is pulling your attention.

* make a timetable and stick to it. Make a proper schedule of each day which will include what time will you wake up, when you will eat, when you will take a nap etc. Even include what subject and what chapters you will study each day. This will make your revision planned and hassle free.

* take adequate sleep. It is necessary to sleep at least 6 hours in a day even during exams as your brain needs that much time to recuperate from the stress and strain. Studies have shown that taking an adequate sleep of 6 hours in a day, increases productivity and improves your ability to remember what you have studied that day.

* take a short nap after lunch. The grasping ability reduces after eating lunch and hence it is a good habit to take a power nap of 7 to 8 minutes after lunch.

* keep your body properly fed and properly hydrated. There is no specific food that will help you improve your grasping ability. All the foods are important enough to provide the necessary nutrition to your brain and, in turn, improve its grasping and retaining ability.

* lastly, don't over exert yourself. Stress is only going to make you forget what you have read. If possible, perform meditation for 10 to 15 minutes in the day to relax your mind and refresh you for the whole day of studying.

Hi,24, I am facing a difficult time due to my career and marriage. I am unmarried right now, but there is pressure on me for that. I was a calm person. Considerably calm person. But now I am getting irritable, and I loose control while reacting on very small things. I am never happy, I have lost interest in my favorite things, I do not like going out now, I just want to know, is it normal? Am I facing any kind of depression?

In an Indian family, a 24 year young girl is always a matter of concern in the family. It is our culture that forces parents under peer pressure to make sure you find a good suitable husband as soon as possible. It becomes a part of their social duty. If you do not want to get married as yet, you have to do something that will justify your remaining single for a while. Take up a course of study that will enhance your capabilities, even for a job in the future. Speak to your parents about your ambitions of what you would like to do in the next few years. It will be a great idea for you to take a few days off mentally for yourself and decide who you would like your future husband to be like and express this to your parents. It will make their efforts more worthy (because they will not stop tying) and you will be less irritated with rejections. Most of all, you are not Depressed. But you have to find time and make all effort to clear your mind first. And express it in clear terms to your parents. Remember, it may seem hurtful to be clear and direct with them, but in the long run, irritation from wrong choices will be avoided. You are a young girl of the new generation. It is better to be clear NOW. Than regret in the future. After-all, as parents, they have your good in heart, but as many many families, the generation gap and new thinking is not easy to deal with. Best of luck.

May b I am definitely wrong. But I can clearly see where my wife is wrong. Her negative feeling attitude for every person who is related or not related to her. This causes fights between us very often. Many a times I control my anger when she is like that. But sometimes in my anger I tell her something which according to her is wrong and we end up fights where I hear very harsh words for me and the situations goes to that extent where she wants to break our relation. She has to do drama of becoming unconscious and act of committing suicide. Today she hanged herself in such a way where she does not even die and scare me of committing suicide. I do not think one being negative every time and the other knowing her behaviour tries to be calm every time is possible. Sometimes anger do come out. Please guide me what can I do to change her behaviour or how can I be calm and accept everything she does every time.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Husband and wife come from two different families, with completely different backgrounds hence they both are likely to have completely different sets of values and beliefs and expectations from each other. And both may think that the" other person" is wrong. From you note it appears that your wife is very desperate to get what she wants from you. If she is talking or acting about committing suicide, then I think, you need to take some serious step to resolve your issues, at the earliest. Or you will have serious issues later on. Kindly consult a counsellor who will help you both to understand each other better, will teach you both some effective communication skills so that you both will be able to handle unpleasant situations in a better way. Kindly consult a counsellor at the earliest.

lybrate-user, 9-10 hours of sleep is little on the higher side. You can try studying in intervals. You must also exercise to remain fit and healthy which will enable you to stay focused and study better.
