Hello doctor I have a question from you about my cousin and he is about 20 years old. He is well and fit physically but due to some unavoidable natural misfortune he got orphan at the age of 15 and from five years yet he is very disturbed physiologically and continuously in deep stress. I have a also pity and sympathy for him. The question is from about five to six month his behaviour is strange and abnormal. He often times does like a complete mad, after some times he becomes as usual. Please tell me what should be done to reduce his stress and to vanish his that memory of those incident from his mind. And to make his livehood better. Thanks and will be waiting for reply.

Hello, welcome to lybrate sorry to hear about the tragic incident that happened to your cousin. Such traumatic life events are a source of immense stress. Such stressful conditions can trigger the development of an abnormal personality, an underlying mental illness, which might remain hidden till a new triggering factor is encountered in life. Also such life events makes an individual more vulnerable for stressful situation in future, reduces stress coping abilities and can lead to maladaptive changes in ones behaviour. As you told that since last 5-6 month he had started behaving abnormally, with increased aggression. This might be triggered by some other incident which need to be explored. Also it can be the beginning of an underlying mental illness. Hence before going for managing these symptoms, a thorough assessment is necessary in order to understand his emotional and psychological state. This will help in understanding him better, & would help in making a better management plan for his issues. If you consider that you need detailed evaluation for your cousin, and want to seek an expert advice pertaining to his problems, you can a private session with me.

Dear Rohit, At your age night fall is common. There is no need to stop it. You mature hormonally at adolescent age itself. But economically and socially, even legally you are not fit for marriage. What happens to the semen produced in your body? Think. It has to get out. You are not married. So it goes out in the dream stage of sleep.Otherwise you have to masturbate and release it. Going to other women may be risky with diseases. So, accept night fall as a natural way of letting the unused fluid (semen) out. As age advances, it will reduce because of your other interests in life. Now also if you concentrate on your studies and learning many skills for your life, night fall will be reduced.

Don't tell. There's no need to advertise your shyness. Keep it light. Change your tone. Avoid the label. Stop self-sabotaging. Know your strengths. Choose relationships carefully. Avoid bullies and teases.

I feel suicidal for no reason, I often try to slit my wrist. What do I do to make these thoughts go away?

I feel suicidal for no reason, I often try to slit my wrist. What do I do to make these thoughts go away?
They are not just thoughts alone; there is a lot of unexpressed anger lurking within you that needs to desperately express itself. This anger is turned inwards and the result is this tendency to hurt yourself or terminate yourself. Whenever it seems that there is no specific reason, then it is bound to be something from early childhood that needs to be dealt with. Meet with a counselor and identify the feeling and thoroughly expend it out of your system. Your parents will know a lot of factors that may have contributed to this situation. Life is extremely precious and no one has a right to willfully end it unless there are very justifiable reasons. If you visit a geriatric ward in any hospital you will know the premium that is placed on survival, and how every possible way you can stretch life is attempted on frail and weak bodies that are in the twilight of their lives. You must also show that regard for your life, especially when you are that young and life is just beginning. You are obviously a bankrupt person spiritually: no spiritually sound person will contemplate suicide. Life is a gift of God and to be held in high esteem and preserved at all costs. You are probably depressed and when people are in that state, life looks miserable, hopeless, and futile. Depression can be resolved and if you have not used all the options to resolve depression, you would be inadvertently throwing away your precious life, never to get it back again. This life is an opportunity and since you have probably not utilized it well for various unfounded reasons please look at it with other people for other options and it will seem better. People who contemplate suicide are lonely people: just addressing that problem alone you will find good reasons to live. Failed or the threat of failed relationships are at the bottom of most suicides. A newer theory about suicide, devised by an American psychologist called Thomas Joiner, states that three main factors can cause someone to turn to suicide. They are: •A perception (usually mistaken) that they are alone and no one cares about them. •A feeling (again, usually mistaken) that they are a burden on others and that people would be better off if they were dead. •Fearlessness towards pain and death. Fearlessness poses the biggest risk that someone will commit a successful suicide attempt – they may fear the pain more than the fear of death. Go out there and conquer the world and don't ever let it get the better of you, ever.

Depression - 8 Steps To Help You Get Rid Of It!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Depression - 8 Steps To Help You Get Rid Of It!

We all have those days when we seem to have hit an all time low. We feel bad, sad, mad, and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. However, this is a temporary, passing phase for most of us. But for people with depression, this is not the case.

Chronic depression, which is more common in women than men, can arise due to different reasons. Major life changes, marital issues, relationship issues, financial problems, chronic medical problems, death of loved ones, life stressors, weather changes, etc. can lead to depression.

This leads to prolonged periods of sadness, feeling of emptiness, loss of interest in activities which were normally pleasurable, irritability, sleeplessness, loss of appetite, weight gain, worthless and hopeless feeling, and feeling of doom. This can result in dejection, social withdrawal, poor performance at work/school, and an overall declining quality of life.

In most cases, there is usually a past, unpleasant experience which leads to depression. This could be different for different people, depending on their tolerance. While some may go into depression over minor relationship issues, for others, it could be as severe as sexual abuse in the past.

Ayurveda recognizes “sadhaka agni” as a fire that helps a person to digest trauma. People with a strong sadhaka agni have a higher tolerance and take more time to get depressed compared to people who have a weak fire in them.

The following are some simple changes that can be very useful in overcoming depression.

  1. Meditate for about 20 minutes every day.
  2. Realize and practice detachment. Most people with depression have a loss of something they were closely attached to. Realizing that nothing in life is permanent and letting it go will play a major role in feeling better.
  3. Get a sound, restful sleep. Stick to a routine by going to bed and getting up at the same time every day.
  4. Walk out in the sun and get a good dose of sunlight. Add exercise to sun exposure to feel elated and upbeat about life in general.
  5. Exercises such as yoga, walking, and cycling also are useful in improving overall balance and health. A healthy and fitter body definitely leaves one in a better mood.
  6. Eat healthy food. Avoid packaged, canned, and processed food. Include a lot of nuts and seeds in your diet, be it roasted or soaked.
  7. Try mood uplifting food items like black pepper, dry ginger, turmeric, amla, cloves, and cardamom.
  8. Herbs like ashwagandha, shatavari, brahmi are highly useful in curing depression. They also treat fluid balance, govern energy and creativity in the body, improve metabolism, and clear toxins.

Ayurveda believes in not just making one feel better, but improving his/her overall well-being by getting to the root of the issue. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Continue treatment for BP. Try to stabilize your mood with exercise/ meditation/ prayers at home/ walking with your husband. Try to figure out with your husband as to why he is hurting you. No point in getting stressful or running away. Face it and be prepared for the worse. You cannot change anyone as you did not cause it/ you cant control it/ and you cant cure it/ only you change your attitude find some hobbies when lonely.

Dear user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

hi, I can understand your feelings. I think here your mother's age to be blamed for her depression. In India most of the senior citizens just leave the hope for living because of their weak physical health and thus make themselves mentally and physically weak too. Try to make her happy by providing the atmosphere which she likes. You may invite someone whom she likes to talk to. Provide her with the food which she likes. Don't restrict her to eat . let her move on her own just keep an eye so that she doesn't fall. Put some nice music which she enjoys. Take her to the places like temple or satsang where she used to go when she was well. Tell other family members also to talk to her nicely. Take photographs with her. In short do all the activities which include laughter and happiness. Best wishes for you. regards Sunita

Hello, premature ejaculation needs a detailed evaluation. We need to understand how this started and has this been specifically associated with a particular partner or in all situations. Also of this happens with a particular setting etc. You will definitely benefit from medications, therapy and also a detailed evaluation. It is also important to understand if your partner has any specific problems too. Therapies such as sensate focus techniques, relaxation strategies and stop sqeeze techniques are known to help all the best!
