Eating chalk can be an indicator of calcium deficiency. You have not mentioned her. You can take her to a paediatrician if shes a kid or consult a physician who will diagnose and prescribe accordingly.

Hi. You seem to be carrying the burden of the past for too long. Mistakes happen and its very human to make mistakes. The lessons learnt from mistakes is the only thing to be carried along, rest all has to be let gone. You may not have got an outlet to vent out and let go. To be living in the present, you need to let go of the past and begin living your life in the present, in the here and now. Make a priority list of all the important things relevant to you today and lay down a path to walk on towards your goal/s. In order to do this, you will first have to make peace with your past. You can consult a counsellor to help you. All the best.

You appear to be having normal sleep pattern. The lucid dreams you describe, are dreams during the last phase of REM, or rapid eye movement sleep. You are likely to come out of sleep with the slightest of distraction during this phase. You need not worry. You don't need any intervention at present. Good luck.

After my result of gate exam I am very sad and nothing like to me please give me some suggestions for happiness life.

After my result of gate exam I am very sad and nothing like to me please give me some suggestions for happiness life.
1) Therapy: In some cases of depression, the root cause can be issues that have not been dealt with in a person’s life. The causes of depression are many because not all cases are alike. Some causes may be chemical and others emotional or it could be a combination of the two. Therapy has been known to be the most effective in dealing with depression. Lives can build up with pressures and work to the point of feeling run down and emotionally spent. People will most often seek the easiest alternative but sometimes just talking out your issues with someone trained to listen will help with depression. 2. Exercise: Exercise boosts every part of the body including blood flow to the arteries and endorphins which are naturally good for pain and even depression. Endorphins actually release other neurotransmitters in the body such as serotonin which is what antidepressants actually address. Endorphins release serotonin naturally and increase emotional health. Studies have proven that exercise improves cases of depression in patients suffering with this condition. 3. Iron: There are several studies that now indicate that a deficiency in iron is a cause of depression. There is a specific iron deficiency that is directly related to depression and some of the symptoms are lack of appetite, irritability and fatigue. There are many symptoms associated with this type of iron deficiency and it may be the underlying cause of a portion of people facing this issue. These underlying issues can lead to feelings of sadness and depression. An increase of iron in the diet can be the help needed to overcome issues of depression. 4. Fish Oil: Fish oil is known to boost many aspects of health and one of these is depression. When the body is getting all it needs nutritionally the mind follows. Fish oil contains a bevy of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids are known to improve emotional well-being naturally. You can buy fish oil that is molecularly distilled and you can ensure you are getting the purest form of fish oil available. 5. Folic Acid: Folic acid is an integral part of our dietary needs and should be considered when facing issues of depression. A deficiency of folate in the body is directly linked to depression in some cases and you can boost your happiness by adding foods rich in folate to your diet. Nutrition can play a large role in mood elevation. Folate is found naturally in foods such as grains, fruits and vegetables. Leafy greens that are rich in folate which are added to the diet have been shown to improve moods and emotional health as well as physical health. After each session you can feel the difference because you have come a little more closely to the root of your emotional issues. Boosting your happiness could just be talking out the things that cause you sadness in life. Gaining a Happy Perspective After dealing with nutritional deficiency or emotional deficiency it is important to put positive things forward in your life. Listen to positive affirmations during your day, avoid negative people and situations if you can do this. It is beneficial to emotional health to avoid drama and people who love drama. Boosting your happiness could be as simple as avoiding negative people and situations. Homeopathic medicine work for people and can be an alternative after normal remedies fail to boost happiness. However they should be a last resort not the first resort for boosting emotional health.

You have yourself mentioned your problem. If you are stressed because of your anger, you could be disturbed with poor sleep. If the workload is causing yo stress do speak to your boss or supervisor and find a way out of that dilemma. Perhaps you could also learn to delegate work to other people and get work done more efficiently. For any of these problems I suggest you meet a counselor and talk about your feelings. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day even on weekends; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i. E. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I guess by what you mean a glorious past 1 year you meant a high achievement and successful year. That's really great but than why you are having difficulty in remembering names and references is the question. You have high achievements and high expectations and thus high amount of stress in life. Stress does not come by high work load but comes by the attachments and associations we make with that work. We work hard so as to make our future bright and after one achievement we again work hard to make another achievement to brighten our future. So we are continually in the process of thinking about the future and not living our present. I hope this is making sense to you and you could relate it to your problem. What I would suggest to you is to work for your expectations and achievements but take a good amount of time to relax. Its simple to consciously adopt some stress management strategies in life so as to live our present to the best. 30 mins of daily aerobic exercise of your interest, fixed time schedule for work, fixed sleep - wake schedule, healthy nutritious diet at fixed schedules, avoid junk food. Spend 30 mins to 1 hour a day of quality time with your family say your wife and children. Quality time means just to be with them with no beeps of gadgets around us and no talks about work. These are some of the tips which may help you. Other than this you may learn mindfulness exercises and inculcate the same in your life for your best performance. There are cognitive enhancers available which helps to increase attention, concentration and memory of a person, but I personally feel that bringing stress management and mindfulness in your life will be sufficient. I hope this will help you. Take care.

Hello lybrate user, - when there is disturbed sleep, thus irritability is common - for female during menstrual cycle also these symptoms are common - better to analyse why this is happening - for the first time you are facing this problem, better to correct you sleep, do follow these instructions - have always freshly prepared food and maintain time of having food - reduced nutrition level also a cause so correct that - avoid day sleep avoid excess of tea/coffee - sleep before 12am - do foot massage with medicated oil like brahmi taila and also head massage before sleep - drink much of water - have dry fruits like figs, almond - have decoction of fresh ginger daily twice before food thank you.

I just broke up a few days ago after my gf cheated on me. I hadn't eaten for a week due to anxiety because I knew something was wrong but 3 days ago we broke up and she's gone to him. Now that I hadn't eaten for a week, my body can't intake that much of food and liquids (I'm trying) and I am really depressed, sometimes I'm happy but then again, depressed. Depressed because I lost my best friend who betrayed me and stole my gf and all my friends along with that because they think I'm blaming him and he never tried stealing her. How do I remove my depression? I've been trying everything. I've been successful too but I felt like sharing my story to you guys. (I am completely lonely now, no friends. I've just got my best friend who is a girl)

Well, it is a good thing to share your distress and get it off of your chest. However, that doesn't change much, does it? You are just all of 15 years old and you should not take the relationship too seriously. It is better you have discovered that she was two-timing you now than a lot later when you wold have been too much into her. It will certainly hurt to know that your best friend has snatched her away from you. Perhaps he was better for her for some reason and you can do some reasoning around that and see where you have to improve. It is not the end of the world and you can take it in your stride, if you learn the lessons you need to. Otherwise, you will tend to repeat them. You must now quickly move on and get rid of all reminders of her and stop visiting places you two used to frequent. You must talk a lot about your feelings to a close friend but do not malign her reputation. If you have lost to a better guy, then so may it be. You will still find your dream girl somewhere out there and do not rush into one right now until you have resolved this matter. If need be you could meet with a relationship copunselor and sort all your emotions to come out stronger and better.

Learning Disabilities and Dementia

Learning disabilities and dementia


Advances in medical and social care have led to a significant increase in the life expectancy of peoplewith learning disabilities. The effect of ageing on people with learning disabilities – including therisk of developing dementia – has, therefore, become increasingly important. This information sheetoutlines some of the issues concerning people with a learning disability who develop dementia.

The causes of learning disability are diverse. They include genetic disorders such as Down’s syndrome, pre- or post-natal infections, brain injury, and general individual differences.

What is dementia?

Dementia is a general term used to describe a group of diseases that affect the brain. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. The damage caused by all types of dementia leads to a progressive loss of brain tissue. As brain tissue cannot be replaced, symptoms become worse over time.

Symptoms may include:
Loss of memory
An inability to concentrate
Difficulty in finding the right words or understanding what other people are saying
A poor sense of time and place
Difficulty in completing self-care and domestic tasks and solving minor problems
Mood changes
Behavioural changes
There is no evidence that dementia has a different effect on people with learning disabilities than it does on other people. However, the early stages are more likely to be missed or misinterpreted, particularly if several professionals are involved in the person’s care. The person may find it hard to express how they feel that their abilities have deteriorated, and problems with communication may make it more difficult for others to assess change.

What are the risks?
Down’s syndrome and Alzheimer’s diseaseAbout 20 per cent of people with a learning disability have Down’s syndrome. People with Down’s syndrome are at particular risk of developing dementia.
Figures from one study (Prasher, 1995) suggest that the following percentages of people with Down’s syndrome have dementia:
30-39 years - 2 per cent40-49 years - 9.4 per cent50-59 years - 36.1 per cent60-69 years - 54.5 per cent
Studies have also shown that virtually all people with Down’s syndrome develop the plaques and tangles in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s disease, although not all will develop the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. The reason for this has not been fully explained. However, research has shown that amyloid protein found in these plaques and tangles is linked to a gene on chromosome 21. People with Down’s syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21, which may explain their increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Other learning disabilities and dementiaThe prevalence of dementia in people with other forms of learning disability is also higher than in the general population. Some studies (Cooper, 1997; Lund, 1985; Moss and Patel, 1993) suggest that the following percentages of people with learning disabilities not due to Down’s syndrome have dementia:
50 years + - 13 per cent65 years + - 22 per cent
This is about four times higher than in the general population. At present, we do not know why this is the case. Further research is needed. People with learning disabilities are vulnerable to the same risk factors as anyone else. Genetic factors may be involved, or a particular type of brain damage associated with a learning disability may be implicated.
How can you tell if someone is developing dementia?Carers play an important part in helping to identify dementia by recognising changes in behaviour or personality. It is not possible to diagnose dementia definitely from a simple assessment. A diagnosis is made by excluding other possible causes and comparing a person’s performance over time. The process should include:
A detailed personal historyThis is vital to establish the nature of any changes that have taken place. It will almost certainly include a discussion with the main carer and any care service staff.
A full health assessmentIt is important to exclude any physical causes that could account for changes taking place. There are a number of other conditions that have similar symptoms to dementia but are treatable: for example, hypothyroidism and depression. It is important not to assume that a person has dementia simply because they fall into a high risk group. A review of medication, vision andhearing should also be included.
Psychological and mental state assessmentIt is equally important to exclude any other psychological or psychiatric causes of memory loss. Standard tests that measure cognitive ability are not generally applicable as people with learning disabilities already have cognitive impairment and the tests are not designed for people without verbal language skills. New tests are being developed for people with learning disabilities.
Special investigationsBrain scans are not essential in the diagnosis of dementia, although they can be useful in excluding other conditions or in aiding diagnosis when other ssessments have been inconclusive.
What can be done if it is dementia?Although dementia is a progressive condition, the person will be able to continue with many activities for some time. It is important that the person’s skills and abilities are maintained and supported for as long as possible, and that they are given the opportunity to fulfil their potential. However, the experience of failure can be frustrating and upsetting, so it is important to find a balance between encouraging independence and ensuring that the person’s self-esteem and dignity are not undermined.
At present there is no cure for dementia. People progress from mild to moderate to more severe dementia over a period of years. New drug treatments seek to slow down or delay the progression of the disease and it is hoped that treatments will become more effective in the future. See the Society’s information sheet Drug treatments for Alzheimer’s disease – Aricept, Exelon, Reminyl and Ebixa.
Strategies for supporting the person with dementia People who develop dementia are, first and foremost, human beings with individual personalities, life histories, likes and dislikes. Dementia affects a person’s ability to communicate, so they may develop alternative ways of expressing their feelings. By understanding something of a person’s past and personality we can begin to understand what they might be feeling and why they respond in the way they do.
Many practical strategies have been developed to support people with dementia and their carers. Here are some ideas:
Enable individuals to have as much control over their life as possible. Use prompts and reassurance during tasks they now find more difficult.
Help the person by using visual clues and planners to structure the day.
Use visual labels on doors to help people find their way around their home in the early stages.
Try to structure the day so that activities happen in the same order. Routines should be individual and allow for flexibility.
A ‘life story book’ comprising photos and mementos from the person’s past may be a useful way to help the person interact and reminisce.
If speech is a problem make use of body language. Simplify sentences and instructions, listen carefully and give plenty of time for the person to respond.
If someone is agitated, the environment might be too busy or noisy.
Relaxation techniques such as massage, aromatherapy and music can be effective and enjoyable.
If someone becomes aggressive, carers and professionals should work together to try to establish reasons for the person’s frustration and find ways of preventing the behaviour or coping with the situation should it arise.
Medication may be used if someone is experiencing high levels of agitation, psychotic symptoms or depression. It is important that any prescribed medicine is monitored closely and that other ways of dealing with the situation are thoroughly explored.

I'm a heavy drinker since 3-4 and I want to take a firm decision to quit it permanently. I don't have family members or friends to help me with it. I myself want to be strong enough to quit it, and don't want to get urged for drinking and do many things in life. Its only that I have had faced few circumstances in life which lead me to this habit, and I couldn't control my mind from having alcohol. I have taken a first step by this decision to quit, and need advice for further details.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)

Remove all reminders of alcohol from home such as empty bottles, ashtray etc. Try to avoid the place from where you used to purchase alcohol. Take a different route. Have a readymade answer if someone offers a drink. Do not fall into the trap of thinking I shall drink only 1 peg and no more. Do not try to challenge yourself or test your will power by being at a place where alcohol is being served and you try to resist. Confidence is good, over confidence is not. Do not hesitate to take medicines and therapy if you are unable to quit on your own. Let your friends know that you have quit. Announce it to others so that you now have a greater responsibility. If you do drink by mistake on a particular day, do not think all is lost and go back to old ways. Its okay and start afresh the next day. A lapse and relapse are not the same.

I had a fun life a year ago. Had two close friends, a girl and a boy. We used to hangout with our friends every week and party quite frequently. We were too close as we shared many ups and downs of our lives together. But then I started liking the girl knowing the fact that those two love each other. And this somehow led me to become frustrated, irritated and reckless, which, at the end, resulted in a fight with them. The boy already left to his hometown 6 months back. I have been in touch with the girl, but always failed to behave normally to her. Now even she is leaving the city and moving back to her hometown. A lot of things coming into my mind, sadness, frustration, guilty and many more. This is effecting my work. Also, I feel directionless about my future. Having a difficult time. Feeling depressed. Can someone please help

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Well you were not a good friend, if you tried to make out with this girl when you knew she was in love with the other friend. Both of them must be disappointed and angry with you because they must have trusted you when you were close to them. Now that the boy is gone, you are still pursuing this girl, clearly not respecting their relationship. It often happens that with a lot of exposure to girls, you can fall in love with one of them, easily. That does not mean you can just barge in into another existing relationship. This is a lack of trust and respect. You must apologize to both of them, and look elsewhere for another girl. Anyway, it is not right that you love a girl and that she has to also fall in love with you. She must also genuinely feel love for you. It looks like she does not, and therefore, you must move on. Of course this will affect your work but it is for all the wrong reasons that you are feeling so bad. If you are true to yourself, you know that this is not right and therefore you must act like a gentleman and do the right thing. Do not repeat this ever again: nobody will trust you and your reputation may become tarnished. You must apologize and make amends with these two and hope that they will put this incident behind them. Do not spoil good relations for your own agenda. There are a lot of girls around, so stop obsessing about this girl.

I am 26 years old and I am addicted to alcohol from 2-3 years and I tried a lot to quit but I failed. Please give me some type of solution.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.
