My friend smokes 3 cigarette everyday what will be the consequence after 3 month.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

We cannot say anything about this level of consumption. Smoking is bad, period. If he is waiting for something to happen, then he is a reactive type. Once something happens healthwise, he will be too late and he will have to focus on cure. "whereas it is better for him to live on the preventive mode and quit smoking right now.

I know that I am a good debater and today first I spoke in hindi. I got 2nd prize but still I am not at all satisfied as the girl who got 1st was not deserving for it. This was even the choice of audience taht I should win. But luck was with her. So from that point of time, I am feeling as if I am fit for nothing. I am suffering from headache and a lot of tension. What should I do?

You need not lose heart and feel depressed. In competition it is natural to win or lose and you prepare better next time and always you will not win and have good sportsman spirit to take success and failure with calm mind for your better future , you can have talk with parents or elders for moral support/. Upi do meditaion and yoga for mind control and your headache will go then

How Do Doctors Cope With Mental Issues?

How Do Doctors Cope With Mental Issues?

Doctors are our real saviors. From physical problems to mental issues, a doctor is needed to guide us all along. The medical professional can be quite challenging and demanding. Dealing with numerous patients and their problems every day is no joke. It can leave a person completely exhausted and burnt out. Doctors are also human beings. All these activities and daily struggle often take a toll, both on their physical and mental health. Unable to cope with the stress, many doctors (especially the young physicians) get into depression. They suffer from different mental issues (minor to serious).

Of late, there has been a mercurial rise in the number of doctors suffering from mental issues (stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, to name a few). As per a survey, women practitioners are at a slightly greater risk of facing mental issues than their male counterparts. To make matters worse, many doctors live in self-denial. They just refuse to accept the fact that there can be some problem (mental) with them. Many contemplate treatment as they fear this can jeopardize their career forever. They feel they will be socially and professionally isolated. But delaying the treatment or counseling will not help either. Like any other patients, they too need love, care, and most importantly, proper assistance.

  1. The first and the most important step is to accept the fact gracefully that there is some problem.
  2. Do not shy away from seeking an expert opinion or assistance. If the need arises, go for counseling. It is for your good.
  3. Your patients are your priority but do not ignore your health in the process. Take short breaks to avoid exhaustion and professional monotony. Go on a small vacation.
  4. In trying to achieve professional excellence, do not ignore your family. Spend at least an hour of quality time with your family every day. Spending time with your loved ones can be a great stress buster.
  5. Try and stay relaxed as much as you can. Meditation, music therapy, yoga, light exercise are important for the mind and the body to function normally.
  6. Take care of your diet. Try and include foods that will enhance your mood and lift your spirits.
  7. For doctors who are into drinking and smoking, it is advised to keep it within healthy limits.
  8. If there is anything that is bothering you, just let it out. Do not suppress your emotions.
  9. Try and follow a healthy sleep routine (though difficult for doctors). At least get 6 hours of sleep daily.
  10. Do not isolate yourself from other people. Mental issues are not a very big deal. Being a doctor, you should know this better. Most importantly, accept and love yourself.

Anxiety and mental issues can affect anyone, irrespective of their profession. The sooner you accept this, the faster you recover. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. 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 your friend ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support she need, she can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless she feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that she have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for her actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. She 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 take her and stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Dr. can chocolate treat someone that have emotional problem, tension easily anger?

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), PGDEMS, DNHE, DYA
Ayurveda, Mumbai
For some people chocolate helps to reduce stress but it cannot be consumed regularly in large quantity as it has more calories and may lead to obesity. You can try breathing techniques and meditation or meet a counselor who can help you with techniques to overcome the emotional problem. Hope the above information helps you lead a good life. God bless!

If a Schizophreniform patient who mostly seems normal is kept (in a rehab) with other patients who are at a severe stage, will their behavior affect this patient? As he is right now complaining that we have kept him with mad people and this is making him mad and he will commit suicide if not taken out of that place. Thought the doctors there say its ok, I am very concerned if I am doing right keeping him in there with such patients. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Schizophrenics are very suggestible and vulnerable by the nature of the disease. If exposed to other more disturbed patients he will certainly get more perturbed and may collapse in such circumstances. In some centers the more functional patients are given responsibility and do very well even though there are other more disturbed individuals. But since this boy si already complaining of a problem it must be factored in about keeping him there. Schizophrenics are also known to feign problems because they may not like the institution or may not like being institutionalized. However, my biggest concern is that he is threatening to commit suicide, if not taken out, and that is a life-threatening matter. But then if you give into this blackmail now, he may manipulate you later for other things too. When people threaten like this they are immediately put on suicide supervision to safeguard them. Find out if there are other circumstances that are actually a problem and if those can be rectified, he may be more amenable. Managing a schizophrenic at home is very difficult too. But if he is docile like you say then you may consider taking him out but he must attend some therapy as an outpatient.

This is for child 4 year old. Studies in Jr. Kg. I feel that my child has difficulty in clarity of speech and speaking in complete sentences. He requires language development. He communicates his needs and is quite good with written work in academics but story telling, language related narration is difficult. Also he communicates only in English. Though he understands our mother tongue Malayalam and Hindi, he communicates back only in English. Is there any way you can help him develop language skills. FYI he was premature 8th month baby, but had all his milestones correctly. His birth weight was 1.8 kg. He is very active and playful child.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I don't see any problems in your child. If he is able to communicate, written work in academics etc, then the other aspects should be due to lack of proper training. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for assessment of learning disability areas including language ability. I too am from Kerala and I wish to speak to you as well as your child. You can contact me through Lybrate. Take care.

You must be under some stress. Meet with a counselor and do sort that out soon. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good nights sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called super brain yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hands thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Hi doctor, this is my life which im telling u, please read carefully and guide me, the decision which you tel will be...
You are a good girl and are very good at heart. Whatever happened in the past is beat forgotten but what you must learn about it is that you must never allow anyone too close to cheat you. I understand your nature. But never listen to people point of view think from your point of view. You are lucky as you have a good husband. You also have a situation of bleeding where there is no doubt about your past. Start your life afresh. Forget past. If you live your husband be good to him. Don't say anything about past because it's beat forgotten. Lead a good happy life with your husband. You are not a cheater. You got cheated. It's not your fault. Start a new chapter. Best wishes.

Hi I m vry addicted to smoke. I tried many times to leave but I can not. I feel relaxed after smoking. But its too much like 20-30 per day. How can I good bye to smoke plz.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1,Just think it yourself that was this the age to start smoking.This Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking .You just think how much money of your parents you have wasted till now. 2.Just ssee the poor people around you who cant make up for one time meals.Just think that if you were not ssmoking ,how many of them would you have fed during last 2 years and try to feel that happiness that you must have got and now you are deprived off. 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I uggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. 6.Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking. ALOM VILOM PRANAYAM daily for 15 minute any time during the day. Report after 30 days There is always written on every cigratte case that CIGRATTE IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH.It itself proves that we smoke only due to a habit or compulsion although understanding its after effects but reluctant

My fiance is controlling. She doesnt realise that i take offense for so many things she does. Even though she says she loves me but when she is angry i get stern responses from her. What should i do to communicate my feelings. Can my relationship ever improve?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
All relationships are based and strengthened by communication. In fact, if communication is blocked or restrained, this bodes the end of the relationship. You must communicate comfortably; and you cannot blame anyone else or later complain about not being able to confront the other for any reason. Each of you must be open to honest feedback. If you don?t do this now, you can never do so later. You will have to then live this lie for the rest of however long the relationship lasts. Now is the time to demand a change, if that is what is required. This girl may be meaning well but may not know how she is offending you. How is she going to know if you don?t tell her! This is the sign of her willingness and ability to adjust: a very important aspect of good unions ? adjustability. Whatever the consequences, be honest and face the sternness, and then confront the same to make her see how she behaves. Now, be gentle, kind, and loving when you do tell her. Inform her that she could get angry but she must look at what you are saying and see if she can adjust. If she does not respond appropriately, give her a few more chances and then let her know that this (i.E. The relationship) cannot carry on any further. Don?t be rude but be sensitive, especially if she is trying. If she is controlling this relationship, she has some insecurity which may or may not be related to you. Talk to her and see if she is amenable to look at it and reform. You may even share this response as a way to open up this issue. When she gets angry, she is actually escalating anger over her fear ? it will never help her deal with the real feeling of fear. The anger becomes the frontal feeling, getting all the attention and to no avail.
