Hello, these are the home remedies:- 1. Garlic gives good results when it comes to cervical spondylosis symptoms. Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties help treat pain, swelling and inflammation in the neck and surrounding areas. Eat a couple of raw garlic buds on an empty stomach each morning with water. You can also take garlic capsules but only after consulting your doctor. Another option is to heat 2 to 3 crushed garlic cloves in a pan with some vegetable oil. Allow it to cool, then use it to massage the painful area for 5 to 10 minutes. Follow this with a warm bath. Do this 2 times daily. Take Hypericum 1X , 2 tabs twice daily with warm water. Revert me after 7 days.

It is never advisable to take medicine right away for feeling low without consulting psychologist or psychiatrist. Many times these feeling low. Is part of life's normal ups and downs and we all have ability to bounce back. So I would suggest you to talk to a professional adviser first. If yoh would like to try something on your own then exercise is the number one mood lifter. Physical activity at least 30 minutes a day will help you change the chemical imbalance and lift your mood. You may also try simple meditation or chanting etc for 5 minutes daily. Engaging yourself in music either playing music or listening to music, reading a good book, gardening, coloring those adult color books etc will also help. Do let me know if I can help you in any way. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

I am undergoing a very bad depression. My sex desire is driving more and I could not resist. I'm 28 years and used to masturbate for more than 12 years now I reduced it because of weight loss small penis size premature ejaculation etc and I feel like I have been affected psychologically because whom ever I saw I started to imagine sexually that too the age of above 30 years female. I feel very hateful about myself and I dint know how to control everything to have a normal life, Now it's time for me to marry a girl I'm afraid too since I feel like it's like a cheat not being loyal with oneself. Pls suggest to overcome all these things.

Dear lybrate user, you are 28 and at this age you will have higher sexual desire. And if you are single, you will get attracted towards women. And to relieve yourself from an intense sexual urge, masturbation is a healthy option. So you need not feel guilty about it, do not hate yourself. You are not cheating anyone. This is very much normal at this age. You are normal. Masturbating will not reduce your penis size, but you need to be careful about your habit to masturbate. If you are doing it just because you have got used it, or under compulsion, or have got addicted to it, then it is harmful. Then, try to control your behaviour. Thinking sexually about every woman you see, will get you into trouble. This is happening because your sexual urge is not satisfied. I think you need to search for your life partner as early as possible, so that your sexual needs are satisfied and you will have many things to look forward to in life. Life will become more interesting for you. If you are still concerned about your penis size or if you think you are ejaculating prematuredly, then please get in touch with a counsellor/sexologist.

My girlfriend cheated with me before 3 months. After our break up i'm feeling very lonely. Can you help me?

My girlfriend cheated with me before 3 months. After our break up i'm feeling very lonely. Can you help me?
You sound like you could be depressed. Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of 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. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.

Nitrosun is meant for occasional use, suppose if she needs regular medications for stress, she will be requiring sedative antidepressants, which reduce stress, give good sleep and also not addicitve. Consult a psychiatrist and get remedy. All the best.

Take sauna bath for 5 days. This is because it helps to release the nicotine along with the perspiration that happens during taking it. So the craving for smoking is reduced. Later, inform me after 2 weeks the changes.

Obviously, your boyfriend's marriage is disturbing you even though you have broken up. It will take some time to overcome your missing him. It is not at all depression but the stress is taking a toll on your sleep too. Meet with a counselor and talk about your feelings and the stress. In the meantime you may follow these instructions to get better sleep: do not sleep during the day; 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.

Smoking 4 cigrate a day can cause cancer. As I used to smoke 6 a day and reduced to 4 now. I also get throat infection easily n cough n cold too. Pls suggest some remedy n do's n don't.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Badshah, Congratulations for reducing to 4 cigarettes a day. Please try to stop smoking. It has many health benefits in the long run apart from throat infection and cough.. Why wait for cancer with 4 cigarettes a day. You are young. With 4 a day also in the long run your risk for cancer is higher than a non smoker. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it, like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon or clove may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud. All the best.

I get tired and stressed daily due to office work. What must be done to stay relaxed?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I get tired and stressed daily due to office work. What must be done to stay relaxed?
STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or “deep breathing” exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or guided imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback. 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14. Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15. Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16. Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17. Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh. 18. Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19. Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20. Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive

Yes fluonxol is anti anxiety drug but even it is not prefferred much for long term therapy. Rexipra is also not advisable for long term therapy. Imo you should try other stress minimizing therapies like yoga, meditation etc for long term.

I just had breakup with my gf. From then I am feeling depressed and lost. please help me.
This is a hard time for you. Please tell yourself that these are all valid feelings. It is a loss for you and your mind will take its time to cope with the loss. Give yourself that tie and don't be in a rush. In the meanwhile, try to seek support from your closed ones, read stories of people who have suffered loses and what helped them come out of it, make healthy friendships, follow your interests etc. When gloom and grief takes you over, quickly remind yourself that these are normal feelings and it too shall pass. Nothing in the world is permanent. It would be a good idea to do lot of physical activity at this time. For further help you can contact me.

Psychologist,
In india, it is not yet legal to help in euthanasia. I doubt, if anyone will suggest anything in this regard. Yet, I do suggest that whatever days of your life are left, live it with an attitude, that this life will never come back again. Have an attitude of gratitude and remember all those things that were good in your life. People who were good to you, you were good to some people etc. Try to give back a little to the society, because this brings a happiness, which no amount of money can. This make your last days more peaceful and happier. If you have any queries, please contact me on private chat. Take care.
