Hi, lybrate-user I can understand that weight gain is a big problem now a day. The main reason behind weight gain is eating more of the processed food, less of exercise and drinking less water. You observe the habit of him, you will find that these three reasons. Hence to lose weight cutting on processed food, sugary food, drinking 3-4 liter of water daily and exercise for min of 30 min per day is essential. Balanced food is the key to long term weight loss. I can suggest a diet plan and some dietary supplement for quick weight loss. I am suggesting a general diet and supplement for him. Sample Diet PlanBreakfast – green Juice.Lunch – vegetable pulao with pineapple fruits. Dinner – paneer with green salad. Snacks – 25g almonds with green tea. Suggested supplement Microfruit tab after breakfast Cytofresh tab after breakfast Lipolyzer tummy tab after lunch Lipolyzer hips and thigh tab after dinner.

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?
Age is nothing to do with enjoying your activities and not wanting to visit friends and family. And you are just 22! it is a person's mental and emotional state that is responsible for such thoughts and behaviours. I have seen 75 year old people enjoying tremendously in social gatherings and enjoying their life. Yet I have also seen 15 year olds so disappointed in life that they have cut them selves from active social interactions. This means that it is your own experiences which make you respond to life in different ways. 1. I am sensing disappointment and sadness with yourself and others, from your statements. I suggest that you undergo counselling to learn tips and techniques to manage social relationships and expectations from self and others which seems to have taken a hit in your case. Withdrawing from people may be a short term solution but never a long term solution because humans are social animals and need each other for their survival and achieve their fullest potential. 2. Some amount of self awareness and" other" awareness can help you to build bridges again with your friends and being able to appreciate differences while accepting similarities is definitely a desirable trait in people in these fast changing times. 3. Disinterest in your own actions might be coming from doing stuff that you don't want to do or may be below your skill level or some other reason. A counsellor will be able to help you to direct your daily and weekly activities in a direction which makes sense and meaning to you so that you feel a sense of achievement and fulfillment.

I get angry at small things and cant control it. I even get violent once angry. I wish I could control my angle but I cant.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Anger is a healthy emotion if expressed in an appropriate manner. It helps to protect your personal boundaries and indicates that some of your needs are not being met. Your anger over small issues suggests that you have become habitual to it and need anger management. When you get angry and violent then you are suppressing someone else by showing your power and that is counter productive and anti social behaviour. Please take counselling sessions to take control of your anger.

Homeopathic Remedies for Mental And Physical Stress!

Bsc(Med.), DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery), NDDY(Naturopathy and Yoga)
Homeopath, Mohali
Homeopathic Remedies for Mental And Physical Stress!

Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person’s thoughts, feelings, behavior and sense of well-being.

Depressed people can feel sad, empty, anxious, worried, hopeless, helpless, worthless, irritable, guilty, hurt, or restless. They may lose interest in activities that once were pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details, or making decisions, and may contemplate, attempt, or commit suicide. Insomnia, excessive sleeping, fatigue, loss of energy, or aches, pains, or digestive problems may also be present.

Causes of Depression

  1. Lifestyle: Lifestyle factors that may play a role in depressed moods include irregular sleep, poor diet, and lack of exercise. Poor diet may contribute to a depressed mood.
  2. Life events: Life events and changes that may precipitate depressed mood include childbirth, menopause, financial difficulties, job problems, a medical diagnosis (cancer, HIV, etc.), bullying, loss of a loved one, natural disasters, social isolation, relationship troubles, separation, and catastrophic injury. Serious injuries may predispose a person to have a depressed mood.
  3. Medical treatments: Certain medications are known to cause depressed mood in a significant number of patients. These include hepatitis C drug therapy and some drugs used to treat high blood pressure, such as beta-blockers or reserpine.
  4. Non-psychiatric illnesses: Depressed mood can be the result of a number of infectious diseases, neurological conditions and physiological problems including hypoandrogenism (in men), Addison’s disease, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, stroke, diabetes, cancer, sleep apnea, and disturbed circadian rhythm.
  5. Psychiatric syndromes: A number of psychiatric syndromes feature depressed mood as a main symptom.

Types of Depression

  1. Major depression: Major depression is characterized by a combination of symptoms that last for at least two weeks in a row, including sad and/or irritable mood that restricts the ability to work, sleep, eat, and enjoy once-pleasurable activities. Difficulties in sleeping or eating can take the form of excessive or insufficient of either behavior.
  2. Dysthymia: Dysthymia is a less severe but usually more long-lasting type of depression compared to major depression. It involves long-term (chronic) symptoms that do not disable but yet prevent the affected person from functioning at “full steam” or from feeling good.
  3. Bipolar disorder (manic depression): Another type of depression is bipolar disorder, which encompasses a group of mood disorders that were formerly called manic-depressive illness or manic depression. These conditions show a particular pattern of inheritance. Bipolar disorders are often chronic and recurring. Sometimes, the mood switches are dramatic and rapid, but most often they are gradual.

Complications of Depression

Depression can have a significant impact on the structure and function of many parts of the brain. This can result in many negative consequences. People with severe depression are at higher risk of suffering from anxiety, chronic depression, other emotional issues or having more medical problems or chronic pain. People with a chronic illness, such as diabetes and heart disease, who also have depression tend to have a worse outcome of their medical illness.

Treatment of Depression

Depressed mood may not require any professional treatment, and may be a normal reaction to certain life events, a symptom of some medical conditions. Lifestyle strategies that may improve depressed mood include wake therapy, light therapy, eating a healthy diet, meditation, exercise, and smoking cessation.

Homeopathic medicines for Depression

The homeopathic understanding of health is intimately connected to its understanding of the mind in general. Homeopaths don't separate the mind and body in the usual way; they generally assume that body and mind are dynamically interconnected and that both directly influence each other. Homeopaths base virtually every homeopathic prescription on the physical and psychological symptoms of the sick person. Psychological symptoms often play a primary role in the selection of the correct medicine. Trying to determine whether a person's mental state caused his physical disease or vice versa is rarely helpful in discovering the correct homeopathic medicine. The homeopath seeks to find a medicine that matches the totality of the person's physical and psychological symptoms, irrespective of "which came first."

Homeopathic medicines for Depression

  1. Arsenicum album
  2. Aurum metallicum
  3. Calcarea carbonica
  4. Causticum 
  5. Cimicifuga
  6. Ignatia amara
  7. Kali phosphoricum
  8. Natrum carbonicum
  9. Natrum muriaticum
  10. Pulsatilla

The homeopathic treatment for depression is customized for you so that you get long term relief. The homeopathic treatment for depression is 100% safe and proven to be effective in most of our patients. The right homeopathic medicines for depression has to be chosen by a qualified and an experienced Homeopathic doctor. So, always consult a specialized homeopath.

In homeopathy, the practitioner prescribes the medicine after considering the totality of symptoms. He takes the elaborate history. Sometimes, it is important to know whether physical symptoms appeared first or mental symptoms appeared first to differentiate between the most similar medicines.

There are about 150 medicines indicated for this purpose. To find out the similimum or the most appropriate medicine a qualified homeopathic doctor takes an extensive account of patient's case taking the process and the chose it. Always consult a qualified homeopathic doctor, as your mental health is important.

Your tests came back negative and therefore Your increased Blood pressure, surely could be due to your anxiety. That is also natural. Anxiety, in any kind is supposed to hike your BP by around 30 mmgg. You need to answer your anxiety problem first. For that you should diagnose your type of anxiety with a psychologist, get psychotherapy treatment.

Hi Lybrate user you should continue medicine as per your psychiatric prescription. My advice is - Take a short break from your job, work responsibility minimum 2-3 weaks, go for a family holiday, do something creative, spend sometime with nature, feel the natures beauty, identify your hobby and enjoy it. Do some deep breathing exercise, listen your favourite songs, forget everything about your profession for one week. After one week try to remind and write your achiements, studies, positive feedbacks from your patients, your inner strength's, etc. You feel better and some amazing benefits just by taking a short break for yourself. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, 2.5 year age is very young to be diagnosed as having Autism though there are possibilities. It would be great if you could share more information regarding the diagnosis, tests done, and which specialist has done the evaluation. This would give us a clear picture on what to suggest. Meanwhile, spend time with your daughter in more creative way, get to understand her needs, expect nothing, but celebrate everything. This will connect you with your daughter.

Hello doctor I am a very introvert person and quiet also. I generally keep most of my emotions to myself. In my class also I have many things (doubts) to ask but I am unable to do so as I am introvert and self conscious ,unconfident and I barely talk to anyone. I do not feel like interacting with anyone but when I want to talk to somebody my introvertness stops me. Nowadays, it bothers me alot as I am not able to express myself and people around me thinks that I am a timid and unfriendly person. And whenever anyone says that I am a quiet person it hurts me badly .because I know earlier I wasn't a quiet and dull kind of girl but for some years I hv became so. People take me for granted they come to me when they need help. Currently I do not have any friends. Also I hv developed a negative mindset I find negativity in everything . And I feel sad for no reason. And I get easily affected by what people say. I am always sad and always think negative about myself and feels people around me do not like me and will target me & make fun of me that stops me from going out . I get worried easily on small day to day things. please suggest me what should I do to change myself and improve my personality & thinking .

You are indeed unique and there is no one who is going to be like you, ever! You have a problem of self-acceptance, and if I may venture to say may be a rejection issue. This latter may have happened due to an actual rejection which you may have experienced very early in your life. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socializing skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally!

Hello lybrate-user, there are many reason due to which you may be sexually inactive for sometime. It may be because of low energy level, or some illness, or may be some tensions etc. Give time for yourself, at least a week or so and work on any stress or anxiety that you are facing, diet, sleep, exercise, smoking habits to be revived. Inspite of all this if you are facing the same difficulty consult a expert or do contact us.

I don't think this itching has anything to do with your depression. Yes, if you are obsessed with itching, then yes, you scratch the area without having any reasons.

Your weight is controlled by 4 major factors (1) refined sugar consumption (2) exercise and hydration (3) posture and sitting (4) how many times do you indulge yourself - alcohol, binge eating at parties, overeating etc. Step 01: refined sugar 1. Avoid all snacks and commercial products with sugar in them - biscuits, cakes, bournvita, horlicks, coke, pepsi, energy drinks, sweetened yogurt etc. 2. Cut down on your daily intake of tea/coffee and maintain it at 3-4 cups a day. 3. Try to add little sugar to any beverage (coffee, tea, milk, lemon water etc.) that you have and ideally you should refrain from adding any sugar altogether. Step 02: get exercise and proper hydration 1. Try to work out for 20 minutes each day. You do not necessarily have to go to the gym. You can incorporate some pretty powerful exercises in your daily routine like - squats, skipping, surya namaskar and core exercises. 2. Drink 8-10 glasses of water everyday but remember that tea/coffee are not substitutes for pure water. Step 03: improve posture and sitting habits if you have a sitting job then ensure that you do not sit for more than 30 minutes at one stretch. Get up and move a little after every 30 minutes. Step 04: stop indulging and eat more of raw natural stuff 1. No more than 60 ml of hard liqour or 2 glasses of beer per day. 2. Try to eliminate the urge to overeat but if you do overeat try to limit the incidents to two times per week. 3. Eat 4 servings of fruits per day. 4. Each of your meal should contain 50% of raw vegetables. Once you incorporate the above points in your routine you will see a dramatic difference in your weight, physical shape and energy levels. You will find that there are a lot of companies out there that are trying to sell expensive products to naive consumers in the name of weight loss. These products may not necessarily be good for you. Losing and maintaining weight is something which is totally in your hands, it is easy and it is free of cost if you follow the above mentioned points.
