Speak slowly. Hold a clove or elaichi in it mouth initially and suckle on a toffee slowly you will be trained to limit is saliva. Also show a dentist to correct the underlying cause of access saliva.

I am suffering from schizophrenia for past 24 years. I am stable with alopathic treatment. Is there a better cure in ayurveda.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Mr. lybrate-user it is better to stay this way. Schizophrenia is a highly complex disorder with relapses and poor response in at least 20 to 30 percent patients according to many studies. Once you are stable with drugs it is better to stay that way rather than shifting yourself to ayurveda and get relapsed. To my knowledge I have seen many clients who have shifted to naturopathy, ayurveda trt getting worsening of symptoms and coming back. Do get confused. Kindly consult your psychiatrist for further help. All the best. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Hello lybrate-user please go and consult Psychologist of your near by area .they will guide you properly and will show you the path for overcome with your depression. Depression is a term very often misused to describe unhappiness. Being depressed can be a very deep feeling of pain with no reason, where one feels imprisoned in a dark room. In order to learn how to overcome depression, one has to stop trying to find the cause for it. We get unhappy for various reasons in our daily life. It could be anything from small and simple to large and complex. It all depends on our own strength and weakness. Usually multiple reasons of unhappiness over a prolonged time leads to a Depression. In my opinion these are the simple ways to engage yourself at some positive work you love to do. 1. Set Goals Something special happens the moment the paper meets the pen and we write down our goals. Our brain chemistry changes, neurons fire, hormones are deployed, and we start thinking about how we can achieve those goals. 2. Sleep Getting the right amount of sleep is healthy for our body and mind. Some argue that sleep deprivation treats depression, but I don’t buy it. I think it’s a cheap distraction that catches up to you within days. Get enough rest. 3.Exercise If you’re physically capable, try one hour of cardio (or as much as you can). If you’re tee-shirt is soaking wet, you’re standing in a puddle of your own sweat, and you can feel the endorphins pumping through your body, you did it right. Shower up and try not being happy, I dare you. Exercise as an antidepressant The following exercise tips offer a powerful prescription for boosting mood: Exercise now… and again. A 10-minute walk can improve your mood for two hours. The key to sustaining mood benefits is to exercise regularly. Choose activities that are moderately intense. Aerobic exercise undoubtedly has mental health benefits, but you don't need to sweat strenuously to see results. Find exercises that are continuous and rhythmic (rather than intermittent. Walking, swimming, dancing, yoga, and cycling or stationery biking are good choices. Add a mind-body element. Activities such as yoga and tai chi rest your mind and increase your energy. You can also add a meditative element to walking or swimming by repeating a mantra (a word or phrase) as you move. Start slowly, and don't overdo it. More isn't better. Athletes who over train find their moods drop rather than lift. 4.Forgiveness Many times we’re making ourselves sad for no good reason at all. People have been known to keep grudges for lifetimes (most religions and nationalities keep them for generations). When you forgive, you remove this weight off your shoulders and put yourself in a position to be happier. 5.Gratitude Many times when we complain we can cause ourselves to be sad. Complaining is just a factor of not taking into account what we’re grateful for. Sit down and make a list of 100 things you’re grateful for right now (and I dare you not to feel better). 6.Sunlight Certain people have a disorder, in which, due to a lack of sunlight, they experience seasonal sadness. I’m somewhat affected by this in the winter when the days are shorter. That’s why it pays to grab your iPod (or your friend) and go for 30 minute walks each day and embrace the sunlight. 7.Hydration This has always been my downfall; I don’t drink enough and chances are you don’t either. Some days I drink only 1 cup of water, and I feel horrible. When I remember, and drink 2-3 liters, I’m happy as a kitten on cat-nip, and productive as a bat out of hell. 8.Friendships Your life force, support system, and everything that matters. It’s not hard to make friends if you put the time in. Everyone wants to be heard, appreciated, and loved. Start off by listening, appreciating and loving, and it will come back your way. And remember, it’s never too late to build new friendships and improve your support network. Turn to friends and family members who make you feel loved and cared for. .Spend time talking and listening face-to-face with trusted people and share what you’re going through. The people you talk to don’t have to be able to fix you; they just need to be good listeners. Ask for the help and support you need. You may have retreated from your most treasured relationships, but emotional connection can get you through this tough time. Try to keep up with social activities even if you don’t feel like it. Often when you’re depressed, it feels more comfortable to retreat into your shell, but being around other people will make you feel less depressed. Join a support group for depression. Being with others dealing with depression can go a long way in reducing your sense of isolation. You can also encourage each other, give and receive advice on how to cope, and share your experiences. 10 tips for reaching out and building friendships Talk to one person about your feelings Help someone else by volunteering Have lunch or coffee with a friend Ask a loved one to check in with you regularly Accompany someone to the movies, a concert, or a small get-together Call or email an old friend Go for a walk with a workout buddy Schedule a weekly dinner date Meet new people by taking a class or joining a club Confide in a clergy member, teacher, or sports coach 9.Reading Take a temporary leave from reality and bury yourself in one of your favorite books. A lot of wise people have been through what you’re going through and they made it through to the other side to tell about it. 10. Challenge negative thinking Depression puts a negative spin on everything, including the way you see yourself, the situations you encounter, and your expectations for the future. But you can’t break out of this pessimistic mind frame by “just thinking positive.” Happy thoughts or wishful thinking won’t cut it. Rather, the trick is to replace negative thoughts with more balanced thoughts. Ways to challenge negative thinking: Think outside yourself. Ask yourself if you’d say what you’re thinking about yourself to someone else. If not, stop being so hard on yourself. Think about less harsh statements that offer more realistic descriptions. Allow yourself to be less than perfect. Many depressed people are perfectionists, holding themselves to impossibly high standards and then beating themselves up when they fail to meet them. Battle this source of self-imposed stress by challenging your negative ways of thinking Socialize with positive people. Notice how people who always look on the bright side deal with challenges, even minor ones, like not being able to find a parking space. Then consider how you would react in the same situation. Even if you have to pretend, try to adopt their optimism and persistence in the face of difficulty. Keep a "negative thought log. Whenever you experience a negative thought, jot down the thought and what triggered it in a notebook. Review your log when you’re in a good mood. Consider if the negativity was truly warranted. Ask yourself if there’s another way to view the situation. For example, let’s say your boyfriend was short with you and you automatically assumed that the relationship was in trouble. It's possible, though, he’s just having a bad day. Thank you and have a nice day.

I don't want to smoke. Can you suggest ways to stop nicotine intake. I really want to stop this addiction. Also I think due to smoking my stomach has too much acid. And I keep on farting pls suggest something for this too.

MD - Psychiatry
Decide a quit date. Stop the cigarette smoked of the day for which you have the least desire. Say you smoke 3 cigarettes 6 am, 3 pm and 9 pm Decide on, by your judgement which one you like to stop and go on. It is not a one day process it may take weeks but achieve one by one. Still your accomplishment would help you to stop the next one. There are nicorette chewing gum available which help you to reduce the irritability during the period of abstinence. You can go to the nearby psychiatrist for the dosing. But it has to be borne in mind the stooping can happen only if you wish for it rather than forcing through medicines.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

HI my name is Ajeet Kumar. I am 21 years old. I am suffered from short term memory. I am try but not useful. What should I do for this. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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 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 junk food.

Smoking - 7 Effects On Sexual Health

Smoking in general, has a negative effect on the human body. It can cause a host of disorders such as mouth cancerblood pressure problems, and lung cancer. Smoking affects the sexual performance of both men and women.

Here are some effects that smoking has on sex :-
1. ImpotenceSmoking can damage the blood vessels that lead to erectile dysfunction (a condition where the penis cannot sustain an erection).
2. Decrease in libido: Smoking can cause various physical problems such as stamina reduction and lack of desire for sex. An individual who smokes won't be able to give an optimal sexual performance and this can further lower satisfaction levels.
3. Erectile dysfunction: Smoking can cause problems related to the circulation of the blood in the body. It can narrow the arteries that supply blood and this is directly linked with erectile dysfunction.
4. Tissue damage: Smoking can damage the tissues inside the penis thus impairing your ability to have an erection during sexual intercourse.
5. Early onset of menopause: It can affect the estrogen (a sex hormone) levels in the female body; so, women who smoke tend to reach menopause early.
6. Reduction in penis size: It can reduce the penis size in men by damaging the blood vessels and the structure of the tissue around the penis. This is more common in younger men.
7. Reduction in stamina: Smoking can cause a reduction in the stamina, thus a person will not be able to perform well sexually. It can lead to fatigue and tiredness during sex.

Of course, there are a lot of therapies which can help you recover from the damage already happened because of smoking and prevent further damage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

What Is Stress ?

General Physician, Pune
What Is Stress ?

Stress is not mental tension. Stress is burden on your body and mind. When it is within your capacity, it improves your system. You feel energetic. When it outgrows your capacity, you feel tired and weak. Burden could be physical, like working day and night without rest. Or it could be financial burden. An impending wedding or hospitalization can be a cause of your stress. If you are hiding something in the mind for a long time, it becomes a cause of your stress. 

Work related stress is usually overworking beyond 8 hours. Continuous focussing on job cause mental fatigue. Young persons don't feel it. So they overlook it and continue working. Initial first symptoms could be heartburn, indigestion, headache, bodyache or infections. Later you have high blood pressure, kidney stone, gout, skin diseases. Still later thyroid, diabetes, pcod, liver disease raise their head. 

Stress is the root cause. If it is not treated, your disease will keep on increasing and your dependence on medicine will continue.

I married in 2012, was arrange. Before the wedding we were talking on the phone. Then I was think . She is a good girl and will be a good life partner. But after marriage it was not certain. As soon as I had thought it was the opposite. She not like to live with my family in it together . They all want something separate and individual and some of his childish antics have hatred in my heart for her. An act of her has always hated the feeling throughout. Which has resulted in the recent. Those that I was upset with the private job pressure. For this, I wanted to own a small business. Something for which lack of money was falling. For this I wanted to sell our gold jewelery . But she did not support me, and My dream was break to a small business. Am now unemployed because of its 6 months. That's one reason that I 'll hate my wife . And I do not like to be with her. Now I am so frustrated and depressed. I do not think there ever will be able to forget this. Some time ago, for not getting a job because I had decided to commit suicide. But I have avoided death . But I do not think I have much time venture to avoid death. So doctor tell me how to adjust in this situation. My big problem is m not want to live my life with wife because I so hate her.

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology

Marriage is about love, understanding and adjustments. But expectations are the biggest hurdle in all these. Marriage is about what two people as a couple want to do, unfortunately in indian joint families it is what the family wants from the daughter in law, which seems to be the case in your marriage. From what you are describing it seems that you two have not developed a relationship of trust. In the absence of trust their cannot be any love. When a woman marries a man, it becomes his duty to uphold her respect in the family, by giving that respect to the woman in your life, you ensure that she will stand by you in all times. But in the absence of trust, and in a situation where the husband is not supportive, she will also decide not to support. The best for you would be to develop a relationship with your wife, try to know her likes and dislikes. It is not fair to ask her to adjust to other people's or your likes all the time. At times you will also have to let her do what she likes. Keeping a family together doesn't mean that everyone has to do, see or eat the same thing. Only those relationships and families can be happy where everyone has the freedom to what they like within some boundaries. If you keep hating her, then you can't be happy. And thinking of dying is a very childish thought- why do you want to run away from the situation, without trying. If you can't bear to live with her, then it would be better to separate rather than dying.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS

Four" a" of challenging smoking habit. Avoid: certain places and people can tempt you to smoke, stay away. Alter: take a walk when you used to take a smoke break. Alternatives: use oral substitutes like gum, cloves or sauf activities: exercise or hobby that keep your hands busy can help to distract the urge to smoke. Consultation with a deaddiction specialist/ psychiatrist can help you more if above measures are not helping.
