Hello, It seems you are in depressive stage. Practicing yoga helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor. 3.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. .

DEAR Lybrate USER. A) apply paste of fresh lemon juice and fine powder of turmeric on face with gentle massage, two times in a day. B) take 30 ml of triphala juice and 10 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep…. C) take 2-2 tablets of chandraprabha vati and sutshekhar rasa after meals. D) take 2 tablet of vasantkusumakar rasa early in the morning on empty stomach with triphala juice…. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions.

My son is 33 years old, married for three years, achiever, working in a MNC, everything is hunky dory but in d last one year he is very obsessed with abs, pumping up and body building and has been taking zomacton (somatotropin) hormones for the last one year. He is very withdrawn, has mood swings. My daughter in law says he is absolutely disinterested in physical activity. Has no vices whatsoever. Well behaved, is not very social and is an introvert .He is feeling life is meaningless and has suicidal feelings at times (he has contemplated suicide when he was alone) he is not gregarious by nature. His routine is office, gym,eat n sleep and on weekends sleep a lot. His life has all d pluses, loving wife, v Good education, loving sibling and parents. V good job U name it n he has it all but of late he asks about d purpose of life and wants to write a book on it. Doesn't party, v occasional drinker, no subs abuse ever, no smoking or womanizing. While talking to his wife also, at times goes into a shell and wants to b left alone. What could b wrong? His wife is v chirpy and not at all demanding.

Dear Lybrate User, I think it will be helpful if your son and daughter in law seek help from a Couple Counsellor. It appears to me that either your son has had some difficult/traumatic childhood experiences or he might be having some doubts about his sexuality and sexual desire. The Counsellor will help them. If your son refuses to go to the Counsellor please ask your daughter in law to take the appointment and start the process. Many times young couples may not be able to share their sexual concerns with the elders in the house. The Counsellor will be of great help. Seek Counsellor's help at the earliest. All the best.

My girlfriend is very nice generally but sometimes I feel sudden changes in her mood. And this change appear so drastically that some times I feel she is a mental patient. If she is saying something, she keeps repeating that thing. At that time, no matter what happens to her she never cries. At some points, her talks I feel like she is going to end her life. But again the situation changes. She starts behaving normal, says sorry for what ever she said or done. Generally she is a normal and cool tempered girl but if any of her friends ever flirts with me just for fun, she takes it seriously. Once she attacked one of her friends just bcoz she took a selfie with me very closely. But on the other hand, she is ok with my friends on fb who are girls. Some of them are our common friends. Can you tell me what kind of nature is that? Or is it ok to be with her or its not going to be a good relation in future. please let me understand this.

It sounds like she could be quite an insecure person, especially around your relationship. The other behaviors need to be investigated with a counselor to see whether it is prevalent behavior under any and all circumstances. If this is her nature around you, it may have to do with her insecurity with you, and you may be contributing to it by playing psychological games, unconsciously. Fb relations are quite impersonal and will not be as threatening as fact-to-fact meetings and contact with girls: that is not abnormal. You must talk about the suicide threats and whether she is using it to leverage anything out of you. It does not augur well to be in such a relationship for the long haul. Have a serious talk with her about all these concerns and see how she responds. Ideally, it is best done before a counselor who can discern whether it is serious or she is playing some games. The counselor could also identify whether you are the initiator of the games, in which case you could do with some guidance too.

How can we increase our memory and concentration/focusing power while studying ?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Social anxiety symptoms could be reduced effectively. First requirement for bringing change is that you need to completely dedicated and committed towards becoming more positive and confident. Second, something tht is repeatedly reminded yet a lot of us fail to do is, exercise. Few minutes of working out for your own self will lift up your mood and give you a new kind of confidence. This confidence becomes a stepping stone in your journey to unfold a new “you”. Next, create a list of situations that triggers anxiety and fear in you, beggining with the most anxious situation at top to the least anxiety provoking situation at the bottom. Do relaxation exercise and relax your body, then visualize the least anxiety proviking situation in your mind, with that also visualize a situation in which you are coping with it effectively. Only for brief moments but try and expose yourself to anxiety proviking situations and then utilise your relaxation techniques to calm yourself. The best would be consult a psychologist who could assist you with psychotherapy and suppirt you in overcoming your anxieties. Wish you good luck.

You have an anger-related depression and will need immediate attention from a professional. You should first meet with a counselor and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you should do so immediately. You must then work with both professionals until you get out of the depression. Since the depression is of recent origin, the prognosis will be very good if you cooperate. 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 scorching 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. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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.

Yes, there is a permanent solution if you cooperate. You must go for counseling too and the combination of the two will fetch you better results. So apart from the medication, you need the help of a counselor who will equip you with coping skills and techniques to handle the daily pressures in life. You can also speak about the recent developments and find a way of sorting those out too. Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! You can follow these simple rules too: 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.

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. 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 contented 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. If you are consistent and cooperative and do not have any episodes for at least three years, you could be taken off of the medication with the doctor's consent only.

M.Sc Applied Psychology, Advanced Diploma Child Guidance & Counselling

Dear Lybrate user the information you have provided is not enough to be labelled as learning disorder. for calling it a learning problem we need to understand that if there is real difference in her class performance and performance at home or is she unable to recall the answers or is she makes too many spelling mistakes, or unable to write proper sentences etc. etc. simply writing same numeral or word in the answer sheet could be just a doodles by the child or may be she z not able to recall full answers so just to fill up the answer sheet she may be writing repeated words or numerals. so pls provide clear in depth information so that further help could be provided. take care

Stammering is a speech disorder which affects your and personality. I can understand it has been giving you lot of anxiety and doubts. What you need is a therapist who can retrain the way you speak. As a start I would like you to read aloud as much as possible by taking each letter of a word at a time. L- e- t - t - e - r. Llllllllllll. Each word should extended as much as you can. This should continue for half an hour daily. Then you need to do relaxation exercises. After practicing this for one week. I will tell you next step.

Mu friend want to left tobacco, he had this habit from last 5 years, when he tries to control this, his health become down and he feels unconscious and sleep. please tell whats the alternate for this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
These are all withdrawal symptoms and he must go through these reactions but still adhere to the abstinence. If you admit him in one of the naturopathy institutes, he will have to abstain from the consumption and that will help him to quit. Do not take him out for at least one month or more. When he comes back keep him under vigil and monitor him so that neither he nor other domestic staff will pick cigarettes for him. He may experience a spurt in eating or drinking juices etc. Let him indulge in those foods for some time, only. Put him on an exercise program, and have a thorough medical check up to identify any other damage to his system. If he is unwilling to visit a counselor, get one to come home and talk to him. He can be coaxed to maintain his abstinence under the guidance of a counselor. Make him do meditation; make him stick to a regular schedule of activities, have him involved in interesting and responsible activities. Educate him about all the harmful effects of tobacco smoke and the damage it brings others in the house who smoke both the side-stream smoke and the second-hand smoke. Acupuncture is excellent treatment too.

How to quiet cigarette? I was addicted to cigarettes since 5 years. Please give me a solution to this.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of will power to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of will power to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.
