Hello, here are some tips to increase your weight, but most important is your confidence. Your looks don't define you, your talent does, so cheer up and go with the confidence for your interviews: ok so let's talk about weight gain, healthy weight gain: eat more often. Frequent meals. Min 6 meals in a day. Increase your protein intake. Have nuts, eggs, soyabean, soya paneer, cheese, milk. Don't drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and can affect your appetite. Eat plenty of calories at each meal. In between you meals you can have nuts or milkshakes. Like banana milkshake, chikku milk shake. Get quality sleep. Heavy stress can also affect your weight gain. Avoid stress. Keep your body hydrated. Drink plenty of water. Try to avoid junk and fried foods. They can affect your metabolism and can cause you to gain fat instead of muscles.

Headaches is something which is very tricky. It is one of the commonest physical symptom arising due to inability to cope with excessive stress. But it is something which can be a presentation of grave medical illness as well. This is why you should get yourself evaluated to rule out any physical cause of headache. If they are ruled out managing stress by pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods is recommended.

Dear lybrate-user. The surgical procedure must have given her the mental trauma and thereby she is upset, weak and in depressed mood. I see this is continuing for the last three months. In fact, she is living in her own obsessive world. Motivate her and encourage her to go outside and live a normal life. Patients with such disappointed mood disorder consume less food. Encouragement should help improve the food. Take care.

You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I always keep thinking about something like my past, people who hurted me, negative thoughts

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Well your past will always be there especially if there are impactful memories. It is good when you learn from it, then it will move out of your memory on its own. Those negative thoughts and people who have hurt you will come back until you resolve them. Note down all the past bad memories and deal with each one individually with someone like a counselor. Over time these memories will gradually fade. If you are matured enough, you can even drop those events as forgotten and forgiven. Forgiveness is more important for your sake than for the perpetrator’s sake, so just go ahead and do it fast. If you think that those people may be amenable to your expressions of distress done directly to them, then do so. Otherwise just express yourself to a counselor and get going. You may even write down all the bad memories on a piece of paper and burn it down as though you have finished with those events and people. That will also help purge it out of system. These are the ghosts of the past that will continue to haunt you, until it has been dealt with adequately.

This is all stress and worries of life. You may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. 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. Want to meet/speak to connect me.

Hi I am giving CA final exam in next 2 months but I am finding difficulties in concentration n focusing on studies.My mind starts day dreaming. Please help

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Obviously, to complete your CA that won?t do. Something is bothering you, and it could be the very exams you are attempting to do. CA is a demanding and challenging exam in itself. If you have prepared well all these months and perhaps years too, you should feel good. But your level of fear may be rocketing up to shake up your confidence. Check with fellow-students with group study whether you are prepared, and that will give you an idea to build up your self-assessment. Do some relaxation exercises, and sort out your fear on sound basis, and remove all irrational notions. Do not attach yourself to the results. Pay attention to the process i.E. Your studying, to see that you are doing the right thing. Take small breaks often between studies to break the monotony. Exercise every day, sleep well, and eat nourishing food. Meditation and some Yoga exercises do help too. For more exercises to help concentration, you may write to me.

Dear, quitting tobacco is no child's play and it takes time and courage. Best method is to completely quit today (now) and sustain with the help of your mind power. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you.

Homeopathy: Best to Deal to With Mental & Physical Stress

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath
Ask Free Question

Stress is the physical or emotional response of the body to an internal or external stimulus that upsets the equilibrium of the body. The stress hormones which are secreted in animals only during starvation, childbirth or torture are secreted in human beings all the time.

Medically, the mental or emotional aspects of stress are exceedingly important. Unhappiness, shock, illness, fear and much else can cause stress, which in turn can make people vulnerable to so many different illnesses both mental and physical. Stress and anxiety go hand in hand; every illness has a degree of anxiety. Even a predominantly physical illness like a sore throat can cause some stress. Certain illnesses have a very large stress component; particularly illnesses like depression, anxiety states and panic attacks.

A person’s tolerance of stress varies enormously – some people thrive on it; high-powered businessmen, for instance, who constantly have to make important decisions. Others buckle under quite small stresses and this may lead to illness.

For the past two centuries, Homeopaths have concentrated on the interconnection between psychology and physiology.

To start with, the homeopathic enquiry is a very profound one and very often during a consultation various factors come to light, which may be creating some degree of anxiety or stress in the patient’s life. A discussion as to how they may be overcome, removed or mitigated, can often be very helpful. Discussion itself can be extremely therapeutic. In many cases, the patient is anxious or worried because nobody has taken time to talk to them. The homeopathic physician spends a lot of time with patients. It is however very important that the practitioner should have a sound knowledge of conventional medical diagnosis because during the discussion signs and symptoms of disease which need conventional (sometimes urgent) treatment may emerge and a qualified doctor with a knowledge of diagnosis knows when to refer a patient urgently to the appropriate specialist and is able to do so.

Having carefully assessed the patient, taking into account not only his illness and how he is reacting to it, but his whole make-up, the homeopathic physician then tries to work out the patient’s constitutional remedy. If he succeeds in selecting the right remedy, the patient’s well­being, resistance, resilience, general health and ability to cope are enhanced and many stress symptoms can be helped.

There are a number of polychrests (medicines of many uses) often prescribed constitutionally, which are particularly appropriate for different sorts of worry and stress. The following I have used to good effect on many occasions: Lycopodium for the patient who greatly underestimates their abilities and anticipates every ordeal however small with pessimism; Silica patients are terrified of failure and Calc carbs are just too weak and exhausted to attempt anything! These medicines are only effective, of course, if they “fit” the patient so far as his whole constitution and make up is concerned.
