Hi, obesity is a serious problem in any age. The common causes are mostly sedentary life style, food habits and may be some medication related. Your father 1st has to be assessed for the reason of his obesity. Then only a proper planning for therapy can be done. But for the time being he can control his diet, has to prevent the total calorie intake as per his diet requirement. You can consult a dietician for that. You can motivate him for morning walk at least thrice in a wk for 30 mints duration. This will help him a lot. Once he starts walking he will feel good. You have to review his medication (with doctor). If wt gain is medication induced has to change or stop the offending agents. Thanks.

I'm suffering from depression and I'm very critical conditions at a age of 23. please help me.
Hello, I am sorry to hear that you are going through depression. I understand and empathize with your condition. Since when have you been prescribed anti-depressants. Are you able to take help online? if so then depression can be treated with psychotherapy; especially cognitive behavioral therapy. Experienced professionals may be where you are, or here may also help you with alternatives other than taking anti-depressants. I hope you will be able to receive professional assistance either online or where you reside. Regards stuti.

Anxiety Disorder - An Ayurvedic Aspect

Anxiety Disorder - An Ayurvedic Aspect
Anxiety Disorder

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) patients suffer from excessive, unrealistic worry that lasts through six months or more; the issues could be health, money, career problems, or just about anything. Its symptoms could include trembling, muscular aches, insomnia/sleep disorders, abdominal upsets, dizziness, irritability and poor concentration.
Causes

The various biological, psychological, and social factors that may cause Anxiety Disorder include: Heredity, Brain chemistry, Personality and Life experiences.
Symptoms

Nausea

Palpitations

Sleep disturbances

Breathlessness

Dry mouth

Feeling of panic, fear & uneasiness

Cold or sweaty extremities

Ayurvedic View

Ayurveda, which takes a comprehensive view of an individual's physical, emotional and spiritual conditions, attributes anxiety disorder symptoms to aggravated prana vata, a subsidiary of vata dosha which is associated with worry, anxiety and depression. Prana vata weakens the nervous system and triggers mental imbalance. It also weakens the neuro-hormonal system and nerve impulses. Ayurvedic treatment of anxiety disorder would involve curbing aggravated prana vata and increasing sattva guna, which envisages a stable and peaceful mind through self-realization and self-control, and appropriate changes in diet and lifestyle.
Diet & Lifestyle Advice

Fresh fruits, fruit juices, vegetables (raw or cooked or boiled), vegetable juices, sprouts, nuts, dry fruits, honey, milk, ghee, fresh butter, and buttermilk are the best to increase sattva and enrich the mind. Try to cut down, or if possible stop, the use of black tea, coffee, white flour products, chocolates, white sugar products, deep fried foods, hot spices, meat, fish, and eggs. Such restrictions benefit in anxiety disorders.

Breathing exercises: Mind has a very close relation with breathing. A person has short and shallow breathing when anxious or stressed and has deep breathing when relaxed and happy. Next time you become stressed, watch your breathing. Try to slow it down. Take a relaxed position and breathe deep using the abdomen muscles. Let the diaphragm expand while breathing in, and contract while breathing out. This will immediately relax you and reduce anxiety attacks. Exercise, meditation, relaxation techniques and Yoga postures are also recommended.

Home Remedies

Take grated fresh coconut 10g, paste of 2-3 almonds (soaked for 6 to 7 hours and peeled), powdered fennel seeds 5g , black pepper powder 2g, and powdered rock candy or raw sugar 20g. Mix all the ingredients and drink with saffron milk. To prepare saffron milk, soak 5 to 6 threads of saffron in one teaspoon of milk for 5 to 6 hours. Chew well and eat.

Have 1 teaspoonful of licorice root powder with water empty stomach in the morning. This is mentioned as a medhya rasayana in Ayurveda i.e. a mind rejuvenator.

Add some fresh rose petals in a cup of boiling water. Keep it aside till it is lukewarm. Add ½ teaspoonful of sugar to it and have this twice a day. This is a good drink to uplift mood.

This is not truly depression. You are just possessive about him. Give little space in every relation.

Depression - Top Ways To Detect It

DPM, MBBS

Depression -  Top Ways To Detect It

Depression is a serious yet common mental health problem that can affect all age groups ranging from young children to the elderly. It is found to be more common among women when compared to men. It can take a toll over one’s peace of mind, physical health, interpersonal relationships as well as job performance (or academic performance). What is deceiving is, the person can also be functioning well, in which case, it can go unnoticed, leading to grave consequences. The good news is that depression is treatable and individuals are able to function much better with treatment. Affected individuals feel sad most of the time. He/she loses the ability to enjoy/be happy. 

As a result of this, the daily activities that he/she participates in do not seem to appeal to him/her anymore. This is especially true in the case of socialising. The affected person will just seem to drop out of social circles. This can be said to be ironic because it is times like these when the individual with depression is in need of friends the most! 

The individual seems to have an overriding belief that the status quo will not be altered by anything and he or she will be stuck in a rut in perpetuity. In other words, depressed people experience a perennial feeling of helplessness. Negative thoughts can also drive one to commit suicide. 

A lot of people who have depression tend to experience a loss of energy. As a matter of fact, this is quite the case with men who enter a phase of depression, as the symptoms which are displayed by them can contrast sharply to those displayed by women. One of the reasons for men tending to report a higher chance of this than women is the fact that they are less likely to express feelings of self loathing. Rather, they usually talk about sleep problems and a loss of interest in things that once they might have found to be interesting or even captivating. They also gradually get quite irritable.

When it comes to women, guilt is quite likely to be felt. They may also sleep a lot longer than what is considered to be normal. Eating habits are a better indication of the presence or absence of depression than most people would realise. Overeating is one of the prime signs, especially in the case of women who are depressed. This leads to them putting on weight, as the rise in the intake of food is compounded by a drop in the amount of healthy physical activity. On the other hand, many may also experience loss of appetite, which over a period of time can even lead to weight loss. Some women who are depressed also complain of aches and pains in the body.

A few individuals who are depressed also complain of weird experiences, like being able to hear voices calling out to them, abusing them in dirty language, asking them to hurt themselves (hallucinations). Some may be found to be extremely suspicious about people around them. If you wish to discuss about any spIfecific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Hello doctor, I want to check with you regarding my 5 years old son. It's very difficult for me to make him listen to me. He troubles me a lot in day to day activities. Convincing him for studies, eating,drinking milk etc. At times I get upset and I shout on him and at times beats him as well. Which is making things worst. I feel the bond in between us is not that strong and it getting weak only. I have been a working mother and some how I have managed kid with my work. I take help of story books to make him understand difference between good and bad habits and all. When I dint fulfill his wishes he shouts on me. If I say no for anything he will try to get that thing knowing that I won't like it. He tries to snatch things from me. I feel very bad as I feel my parenting is not going on a right way. Please help.

Hello, It's quite natural ,your child is missing your attention & affection losing bond becoming rash to torture himself and none, else, challenging your parenting, of course. Your child is psychologically sick for want of your love & affection. Its more important to pay attention to your child instead of giving various things to play. Allow him to play with his friends instead of keeping him alone. However, give him the under noted homoeopathic medicind: @ Gelsemium 30 2 drops. Thrice. Take care.

I hav some fear in attending interviews or taliking to others , recently i attend one interview in that interview my hands and legs are shivering , can you please tell me how to overcome these

The fear is similar to what we cal stage fright. Fear of facing people or an audience. It is common and many people go through it, but they can also overcome it. Its a fear of making a mistake or making a fool of yourself in front of an audience. Which makes you hyper alert and panicky. Try some breathing exercises which can relax you just before going for an interview. Understand that everyone makes a mistake, and you should not be ashamed of it. Have self confidence and be prepared to make mistakes. Tell yourself it is fine to make a mistake and your anxiety will be fine. You will be better able to cope with it. Understand that if you do a mistake its not the end of the world.
