My wife is very moody, has got lot of fallacies, does not believe me for no reason, does exactly opposite to what I suggest, she makes small issues into big ones, least afraid of any one in the society we live or in relations and many more issues. Do we have medicines or required any brain surgery? will hypnotism will be a good idea? please let me know.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Dear , it appears to be a personality problem. It is not an illness. Firstly you should tell her that you all love her so much and you want her to be more lovable. Very politely she should be made aware that she should change her behaviour as it becomes awkward at times. You may make a request to visit a psychiatrist or psychologist who may interview your wife and you in a unbiased manner, to find out expectations and fears you both are harbouring for each other, and finally suggest remedy for it. It is a long process called family therapy. The effects will be long lasting. A few medicines may be required for some time, but brain surgery is definitely out of question. Hypnotism is not meant for that.

Homepathic Medicines to Deal With Stress

BHMS
Homeopath,
Homepathic Medicines to Deal With Stress

Stress is a condition in which we feel frustrated, angry or worried and anxious due to circumstances we find ourselves in.

Stress also takes the form of different diseases in your body, if it is left untreated. Even when you are faced with the same situations, it can cause a different stress response in different people.

Here are a few homeopathic remedies to help calm an anxious person:

  1. Argentum Nitricum: Argentum Nitricum is also known as nitrate of silver. This is helpful in cases where anxiety makes a person insecure and unsure of what to do. When you're anxious, you are likely to crave for something sweet and feel very hot. Both these are cyclic symptoms of anxiety, and can worsen the situation if not dealt with. However, Argentum Nitricum helps calm the digestive effects of sugar and cool the body to keep anxiety levels in check.
  2. Arsenicum Album: Arsenicum Album is a constitutional remedy that can treat both chronic and acute problems. This works well on people who are worried about safety and security. If issues like health, money and break-ins are the cause of your anxiety, this homeopathic remedy is ideal for you. It also helps deal with restlessness.
  3. Kali Phosphoricum: Kali Phosphoricum is a potassium phosphate that helps calm people when overwhelmed by anxiety attacks. This is suitable for people who are easily stressed, over sensitive, insecure, irritable and despondent. It also helps deal with the after effects of grief and fright. Physical ailments such as fatigue, dullness and lack of energy that are a result of anxiety can also be treated with this bio-chemic salt.
  4. Aconite Napellus: Aconite Napellus is made from a purple flowering plant by the same name. it has a number of uses, primary among which is to control anxiety. This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for sudden, intense anxiety attacks and for post traumatic anxiety. It also helps deal with after effects of anxiety such as memory weakness, restlessness, oversensitivity and spells of rage.

Dear, it is better to accept the problem, you have done it, bravo. You can change your mood by deep breathing. Inhale four seconds and exhale six seconds. Practice it for five minutes when you are calm. It will improve your awareness. Then whenever you feel angry or rejected start it you can regain your control. Best luck

I am chewing tobacco products from past 5 years. I want to quit with tobacco using but every time I try I fail. Please suggest a way?

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment. The same applies to chewing tobbacco.

You must immediately take him to a counselor because he is manifesting clear behavior of someone who is really very angry, and if you do not handle him well you may cause more problems. There is an unresolved issue from childhood which has surfaced just now and is looking for a resolution. You as parents may be aware of the event that might have caused this disturbance to surface now. Pleas accompany him to the counselor. Your role ass parents may have just been completed and he will need a good friend in you.

Hi I am a 25. Year old unmarried girl. I have been living away from my family from past 7 years now due to study, job etc. Currently I am working. Its been few months that I had an argument with my father regarding marriage stuff as I dnt feel like marrying anyone. Now I have been feeling a lot disconnected to everyone, my family, my frnds, I enjoy almost nothing. I feel blank about everyone. I barely talk to my family members. I barely enjoy any sort of moment. But I was not this kind of girl until that argument occurred. I used to enjoy alot but cannot figure it out what is wrong with me now. I also have a bf whom I am ok marrying with but now I guess I have ideal feeling for everyone. At one time I want to, the other time I am confused. I have few frnds in office with whom I am a completely different person. I njoy, I laugh, I joke but as soon as I return home everything changes. Though these people does not count much for me I stay happy wid them but not with the persons closely known to me. I am so annoyed with the way my life has become. I can not figure it out. Please let me know if this is any kind of depression or something. Thanks.

Hi. It could be a lot of things. May be due to stress in family your outlook towards rest of your friends and social circle has changed. It could be sub conciously there are lot of things on your mind and you do not have outlet for that thats making you feel sad and you are not aware of the reason. May be due to lot of things on your mind you are not able to share with any one. It could be that there is no happy life scenario for you right now. It could be leading to mild depression, but you need to talk it out. To understand it better, consult a psychologist online or in person. All the best. Don't worry it will be fine.

Please meet with an ENT specialist and investigate this throat problem. You have to quit smoking and need not wait for the results of the doctor's visit. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

How can I control depression and my emotional feelings. Please help me how can I manage it.

How can I control depression and my emotional feelings. Please help me how can I manage it.
You need to deal with your emotions and they are perhaps your most important area to focus on. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
