I have had a depression after loosing my uncle and aunt at the same year. I.E 2006. Is there a way to feel better?
It is completely understandable that you had a big trauma losing both your family members in the same year, i. E. 10 years back 2006 but if you continue to feel depressed then you need help with medicines along with counselling. So consult a psychiatrsist for medications and therapy. Also you may follow general suggestions - do not stay alone - spend time with family and friends and people whom feel comfortable with. - do not keep your feelings to yourself talk them out - eat healthy, avoid smoking and alcohol, have a good sleep at night - exercise daily, do deep breathing exercises, yoga/ meditation for relaxation consult online for any further queries and assistance.

Sir. I am mentally depressed because of my love failure. And my blood pressure is about 163/110. How can I recover?

Sir. I am mentally depressed because of my love failure. And my blood pressure is about 163/110. How can I recover?
Do get your health assessed by a physician to rule out any other physiological issue. Does any family member in your family suffer from bp? as for feeling depressed over love is concerned, yes you might be hurting but a failed love is in no way a symbol of failed life. You are just 17 years old and have a long and wonderful part of life waiting for you, you need to divert your mind from love to look around what you want to achieve with your life, what you want to do and give back to the society, your parents, siblings, friends etc. You are capable of much more than just withering away due to a failed love. You still have to understand about relationships, how to build one, how to maintain one and that takes time. Pull yourself up and focus on your studies and set goals for your future. Take steps towards disciplining and following through to reach your goal. All the best!

You must meet with a counselor to deal with the regression you experience, especially when you are angry. This is an indication that there is a fixation with anger due to some unresolved childhood experience. When this is resolved you will experience a lot of relief even in areas that you do not know about as yet. All feelings must be expressed appropriately every time. The over thinking is a right brain function that you resort to when in distress.

How to detoxify lungs? When it gets effected by smoking. Please give some suggestion to detoxify my lung.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Perhaps it means that you are already afraid that you have damaged your lungs from years of smoking. The tobacco tar, which is the carcinogenic substance in tobacco smoke, lines your lungs with patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke affects the oxygen carrying capacity of the hemoglobin or red blood cells to make you gasp for breath. 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. Because smoking uses the respiratory system it gives you a faster kick. The lining of your throat is also affected and damaged over the years that you begin to experience the smokers’ cough. Obviously this tobacco tar is the cancer causing agent and that is horrible way to end your life. There are a host of other dangerous substances in tobacco smoke (in fact 7000 of them) that it is difficult to put the whole list here, and it is not enough to focus on only the effects to lungs. Because cigarette smoke is ingested through the respiratory system, it is the lungs which are directly affected. So 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. 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. You need to now bring improvement to your lungs by doing a lot of aerobic exercise while breathing through your nostrils only. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health.

Homeopathic Remedies for Depression

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
Homeopathic Remedies for Depression

Depression is a psychiatric disorder that is characterized by constant feelings of sadness, low self-esteem and loss of interest in daily affairs. Depression is most likely caused by hormonal imbalances, genetic problems, drug addiction and grief.

Depression can be characterized by its symptoms:

  1. You will experience constant feeling of sadness
  2. There may be sudden outbursts of anger
  3. You may have difficulties in concentrating and executing various tasks
  4. Constant feeling of tiredness
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Changes in weight
  7. Social withdrawal
  8. Difficulties in sleeping at night

Homeopathy focuses on treating disorders by rooting out the cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms. Homeopathic treatments also do not cause any side effect to the body.

The various remedies that are used to treat depression are:

  1. Causticum: It is used to treat symptoms of depression that occurs after losing someone. It can also help in episodes of frequent crying, mental dullness and forgetfulness.
  2. Arsenicum album: This remedy is used to treat excessive worrying. Usually people who worry about not meeting their expectations benefit most from this remedy.
  3. Aurum metallicum: This remedy is used to treat symptoms of suicidal thoughts, despair and low self-esteem. These symptoms may aggravate during colder months.
  4. Cimicifuga: This treatment is recommended if you feel extremely upset and gloomy. If you face symptoms of neck pain and headaches during depression, then this remedy might help you.
  5. Phosphoric acid: If you face symptoms of introversion and loss of appetite, this remedy should work wonders.
  6. Sepia: This remedy is recommended when you face symptoms of loneliness, anger and are easily disturbed. It may also cure symptoms of digestive disorders during depression.
  7. Pulsatilla nigricans: Pulsatilla nigricans is used to treat symptoms of whining, jealousy and mood disorders. It is usually recommended for women who have depression along with menopause or puberty.
  8. Kali phosphoricum: This is used to treat symptoms of emotional stress, lack of concentration and fatigue resulting from depression.

A Note of Caution: Even though the names of the medicines have been listed above, still it is advisable to consult a trained homeopathic practitioner as the potency and dosage of the medicine will differ from person to person and can only be decided by the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized homeopathy and ask a free question.

I am suffering from depression and severe headache from long time. Can you suggest me some medicines to cure?

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM

I am suffering from depression and severe headache from long time. Can you suggest me some medicines to cure?
Depression and headaches can lead to one another or coexist. In your case, further details like character of headache and feature of depression are needed. Specially any treatment you have taken so far. Both conditions can be managed by medicines, lifestyle changes and intervention if needed. For headache treatment like botulinum injection or occipital nerve blocks can help depending on the cause of headache. Follow these lifestyle changes to avoid headache 1. Maintain regular sleep wake cycle, even on holiday's. 2. Don't skip meals. Take regular healthy diet with adequate fluids 3. Do not consume excess caffeine / carbohydrates / alcohol or smoke. 4. Exercise daily ( aerobics and cardiovascular) 5. Identify your headache trigger and try to avoid it.

Please consult your doctor again and update him on your son's health. He might change the medicines or reduce the dose. You also have the option of changing your doctor. These medications usually come with many side effects. I suggest that you do your own research, read up and educate yourself and take an informed decision. The health of your son could be because of this medicine or something in his diet or the seasonal changes. Though allopathy medicines bring faster relief, they come with numerous side effects. On the other hand, ayurveda and homeopathy are gentler on the mind and body and fewer side effects and sometimes slow to show improvement. Nevertheless, you are doing a wonderful job as a parent and taking care of your son. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

My boyfriend broke up with me a month back. We broke up exactly 2 days after we went on a long distance. We both were very serious in the relationship. I had been fighting with him a lot for stupid reasons. I am so full of guilt and begged him to take me back. He has been refusing me constantly and says that he does not love me anymore and he has thought over his decisions again. I am tired of hearing all the advice from all kind of people. Grieve, start loving yourself, concentrate on work, pray, meditate, date other people etc. Nothing seems to be working for me. Please help.

Psychiatrist,
Hello lybrate-user I understand you are currently going through emotional crisis. Life sometimes throw challenges which can be overwhelming. All I would say is take few days to first comfort yourself. It's never wise to take decisions in crisis. So just get yourself into other tasks which are easy to handle. If needed talk to professional counsellors. Only when you are back in your old frame of mind think about best way to deal with this issue.

Dear Seshuk, Shivering may be due to anxiety, or due to thyroid problem or due to some drugs you use or smoking or other neurological causes. Please don't avoid taking selfie or other scary moments. If you continue, the fear and shivering will be reduced. However consult a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

This is all stress and worries of life. She is having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask her to read this. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me.

What I do in mental depression ? My body is so sensitive so depression is very effect on me so what I do?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
What I do in mental depression ? My body is so sensitive so depression is very effect on me so what I do?
Get urself evaluated by a psychiatrist and get treated. By cbt (cognitive behavior therapy) and antidepressants depression can be reduced. The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks.

Dear lybrate-user, Stopping the medicine and restartin it agin shows that you want to experiment with yourself. It can be dangerous. Talk to your doctor as the medicines will be prescribed after assessing the severity of symptoms. Ask for help. Help yourself to recover. Don't contribute anything to disease. When you can see the positive change after medicines you should go for follow up and ask wheather the same dose of medicine is required or not? Most of the times doctors taper off the medicine. Let he give his expert advice. If you have any doubts or side effects talk openly to your psychiatrist but don't stop the medicines. Enjoy the recovery by adhering to medicine, counselling and follow up as well.

Hi lybrate-user user Scary thoughts are a complex anxiety symptoms and it creates enormous amount of anxiety. There are some steps you can take to help break the cycle of scary thoughts-- Take a few times throughout the day where you can seat comfortably and visualize your scary thought in a less threatening way. You can use humour to downplay those thoughts to less threatening thoughts. Use self - talk that reassures you that you would never carry out the thoughts you think. Try to remind yourself that it's Okay that those thoughts are there don't resist them but try to accept them as just Thoughts, and nothing more. They can't hurt you. Daily meditation is very helpful for you. If you try and work hard you can feel comfortable again in your mind. Thanks.

Stress is a by product of our modern life style. Due to chronic stress you have a negative chain of thought repeating in your mind. The wonderful new is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.
