Which fruit drink controls body pains and improves blood count and its circulation to reduce fatigue.
Natural fruit juices are as healthy as fruits. But always avoid sweetened and artificial flavoured fruit juices available in the market as these can cause weight gain and even diabetes in the long run. Fruit as such is best because it also provides much needed fibre content in the diet which helps with digestion and proper evacuation of the bowel.

I am a 26 year old male. Lately I've been feeling unhappy, I have a good paying job, a good girlfriend, family but despite all this I don't feel the energy and happiness I used to feel. My mind is on a constant thinking mode and it never stops, I don't sleep well I don't feel like eating much (less than how it used to be earlier). My head feels heavy and I never feel fresh and not energetic. Also I don't feel anything, I feel numb to most of the things around me. Is it depression or any other r disease? How can I be normal? Please help.

Hi, Its is advised you show yourself to a psychiatrist your symptoms point out towards mild depression and it has nothing to do with having everything going perfect in life. It can happen to anyone just like BP, Sugar etc. The earlier its treated the better it is. Apart from that consult a psychologist for psychotherapy who will help you to manage your stress as a result of depression. I would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Practice it daily 15 minutes morning evening or whenever your consciousness is clouded with thoughts.

Hi, in the theatrical activities you are with the people who are known to you but in other situations you r with the group of unknown people. So basically your fear is for unknown people. Try systematic desensitization. In this you first take your friend or relative with you on a bus ride or the place where you fear to go alone. Continue this for some days. After few days you go alone on the same bus route or same places. Continue this again for some days then go to some new but less crowded place or new bus route. This exercise will help you. During this exercise when ever you feel scared or tensed close your eyes and take deep breaths. Keep a water bottle with you and take few sips at regular intervals. You can put some music on your earphones too during this exercise when you are going alone. I believe this exercise will remove your fobia for unknown people and places.

Drink water:- drinking water is great for your vocal health. Load up on h20 to keep your vocal folds hydrated, healthy and ready to go. Breath down low:- in order to get a strong, healthy singing voice, you must utilize your lungs and diaphragm, breathing low and deep. Tighten your diaphragm when you sing:- this will make your voice stronger. Keep good posture.

Depression is not a habit. It's an emotional and lifestyle problem which could also have genetic predisposition. You might have to go along with her and give a detailed medical history to the psychiatrist. Her hair fall could be because of depression. She can go for psychiatrist and counselling sessions as depression is treatable and curable. Some people have also tried ayurveda and homeopathy and found relief in that. Lifestyle changes that she will need to make are: healthy eating habits, sleeping well for 7-8 hours, exercising regularly, having a positive metal attitude towards self, others and life, managing difficult emotional situations and developing personal psychological immunity towards ups and downs of life. Maintaining relajiinships and having some people whom peope are close to can have a very beneficial affect on the mental health of the person.

Generalised body pain with high ESR could be due to arthritis specially in young males it can be due to Spondyloarthropathy (Ankylosing Spondylitis ). You need to undergo detailed evaluation and other blood tests too . Consult a Pain specialist or Rheumatologist. Physical therapy plays an important role in such diseases. 1. Get involved in exercise regimen like swimming and walking daily 2. Perform back stretching and strengthening exercises daily. 3. Avoid prolonged standing or sitting. 4.Apply warm fomentation on back muscles. Consult again for further queries.

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

Autism spectrum disorders (asd) are developmental disorders that affect children by disrupting their ability to communicate and interact socially. To reduce a child's symptoms of autism, parents often try alternative treatments such as specialized diets. Lately, the gluten-free/casein-free diet has grown in popularity. Some parents report improvements in autism symptoms with this dietary regimen. Little research has been done, though, on the gluten-free/casein-free diet for autism. When following this strict elimination diet, all foods containing gluten (found in wheat, barley and rye) and casein (found in milk and dairy products) are removed from the child's daily food intake.

Dear Afnan, Welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy.Take care.

First off all not having dreams is completely normal. Dreams are your mind's creation. The human brain never sleeps. Even when you're sleeping your brain is still awake. You wouldn't be waking up the next day, if for any reason your brain slept off, to be funny, for the in-numerous functions it does even while you think you're sleeping. When you sleep your brain turns off certain nervous responses from organs like eyes, mouth, your hands, legs and so on, giving you a sense of relief from the busy day you just had which gives you the feeling of being energetic when you wake up, because then your whole system is re-invoked by your brain, theoretically. Interestingly, dreams don't occur the same way in every person's head. Sometimes, the dream may be related to his/her life, or a current real life situation, or sometimes a completely new and different world in itself. The human brain is interestingly creative, that is one argument no one has ever dared to ask, thanks to such creativity around us. But don't be dis-hearted. Having no dreams does not mean you're not creative or you cannot imagine. Another theory recently suggested that many people, in a world of only 25% of whom under a certain stress level which scientists call the minimum, have dreams that have been driven because" they are stressed" not having dreams might be a sign that you just fall under that 25% of the world human population. It can also be that you don't remember your dreams. What you experience must be deja-vu a feeling that something has happened before not sure when.

Currently I am facing these problems 1.cracking sounds between jaws of my mouth when I move up and down and between joints 2.

Engaging in masturbation -'unnatural sex activities', is not bad - it is a natural feeling for every growing individual. There are no side effects of these activities. It doesn't effect your life in any adverse way, now or in the future. You should take a healthy diet- have fresh fruits salads, exercise regularly and drink lots of water. This should help you be healthy and reduce the cracking sounds. Keep taking these medicines, they are multi vitamins. Consult an ent for the sounds in the ear. Focus on what you are capable of doing and work out a daily plan on what you want to study on any particular day. Make a time table in terms of the topics you wish to prepare in a day. Trust yourself and you will be able to achieve whatever you wish to achieve.

Panic attacks maybe controlled by medicines, but they are rooted in your thinking- they are triggered by your perception. If you really wish to get rid of the problem take psychotherapy/ counselling sessions along with medicines. Depending on medicines for relief will only result in a lifetime dependence on medicines with increasing dosages.

Dear lybrate-user, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.
