Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Sir, I was in touch with a girl since last 3 years. Actually I really liked her and she also knew about it. We have been friends since 7 years and from last 3 years our conversations increased a lot. Nov-4-2014 was her birthday, we spent the day together and I proposed her, she said that her family won't agree to our relationship that's why she can't say yes and then she blocked me on Facebook and WhatsApp. I tried calling her a lot but she never picked my phone. Later after 8 months she unblocked me and gave a text on Facebook asking me if I have moved on or not and then we started talking. She used to show a lot of care and whenever I asked her about a relationship, her answer was same, she said "i'm her very good friend, she can't see me in trouble in future because her family will not agree and we will have to part our ways. I always said "its ok" I asked her to meet up a lot of times, she agreed and never came. One day I asked her in anger why she does this, she said she can't face me and asked me to move on. In between all these she also used to say that her parents want to get her married and prove that we both don't have a future. All her chats and conversations made me realize that she also feels the same but don't admit. These things kept on going until we met on Sept-9-2016. We had a good day together, she clicked a lot of pictures in my phone. We started talking a little more after that day. After few weeks again we met, we were roaming in a not so crowded mall, it was only for 2-3 hours but we had a good time talking. These were the days when she made me realize that she want me to stay by her side. We always met when she wanted to meet, whenever I asked her to meet up she used to make excuses and said no, we also had fights over this. Again after a few weeks she asked me to meet. I picked her from her college hostel in morning and we started roaming in my car. After sometime she asked me to park the car as she wanted to say something. She said, 2 years back a guy proposed her and she said yes only for timepass and broke up in 10 days but the guy didn't agree. The guy has been assuming him as her boyfriend since 2 years but there was nothing from her side - this is what she said. I was very angry after hearing all this but I didn't say much to her. She said from now on she will do everything as I say. After that we both started behaving like GF BF but none of us said something like 'love you' This thing went on for 3 weeks. We were talking on phone, she told me that her parents are getting her married and she don't want to marry now. It was Friday night, on Saturday I accidentally found her at a restaurant with her friend. We talked for about an hour and she asked me to meet up the next Day, I said yes. Next day morning she called and said she won't be able to come. I said its OK but I was angry. I didn't text her after that. On Tuesday I gave her a call, she said she is having dinner and will call back in 5 mins but she didn't. Next day again I called her and again she said she will call in 5 mins but didn't. After that I called her on Saturday and again the same happened. The next morning i.e. Sunday I called and asked why is she doing this, she said "I'm busy, I have a lot of work to do, I can't talk to you all the time" I also said a few words and then she asked me to meet up on tuesday, I said OK. On Monday we were testing on WhatsApp, she was talking very rudely I was very surprised with this change in her behavior and I said I'll never talk to her. After a few days she deleted my number and unfollowed me on Instagram and even uploaded a pic with a guy whom I never liked and she knew about it and when I asked her about the pic she said "you don't have any right to question me" I didn't reply and blocked her everywhere. Now I have unblocked her. I don't understand why all this happened. Could you please help me out?

There is a possibility that she really likes your company but is constrained due to family issues. I feel this may go on and on and one day you will get frustrated and do something silly. Instead you can just be a good friend and enjoy her company and nothing else. You can get hurt badly someday. I advise you to move on and find another girl of yoru fancy who is reciprocal and wants you too. You cannot be in a relationship with other partner not wanting you. So, don't waste your time and energy and life pursuing this relationship anymore. You will be better off and the danger is that you may get of off girls forever!!! Just a possibility. If not that, then you may not trust girls and your wife later because of this experience.

It looks like you are having a particular situation induced guilt. It can be made better by taking counselling. If it is not any situation induced one then it could be obsession. To differentiate you can take professional help.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Every person likes to have massage when their body is tired or stressed especially when going to bed and when they wake up. This is quite common and this is not any disease. Therefore please do not worry. Secondly every person cannot fulfill each and every wishes of him or her. Therefore please ignore this. Take care.

Please consult psychiatrist again and discuss about frequent anxiety and depression. She/he may 1. Increase the dose 2. Add another drug 3. Change the tablets 4. Look for other medical, hormonal and social causes and treat them appropriately. All the best.

Why does PAIN occur? Understand the Mechanism of Pain

Why does PAIN occur? Understand the Mechanism of Pain

Why does pain occur? The mechanism of pain explained

Pain is an unpleasant and distressing physical sensation caused by disease or injury, which induces hurt and anxiety in those suffering from it.
There are many different manifestations of pain, ranging from short term (acute pain) to long term (chronic pain). Other classifications include pain in the internal organs (visceral pain), injured tissue (inflammatory pain), nerves (neuropathic pain), etc.

The reason for the occurrence of pain depends on the cause and kind of pain being experienced. In most cases, pain acts as a warning sign that the body has been afflicted by a disorder of some sort, which may have arisen due to internal sickness or external wounding. Acute pains are generally cured on their own through rest or simple medication. Chronic pains, on the other hand, are more complicated in nature and the treatment requires more elaborate diagnosis.

The mechanism of pain

Pain is an extremely personal and subjective experience and affects each individual to varying degrees. The pain signals, which can arise in any part of the body, travel through the spinal cord to the brain along thousands of specialized nerves and nerve fibres. In the brain, it is processed in the centres associated with anxiety, emotions, memory, appetite, etc. Signals and pain inputs are then returned from the brain to the spinal cord, which may heighten or diminish pain.

In some cases, pain may also be induced by damage to the brain and spinal cord, which happens after a stroke.
A constant barrage of pain signals may cause the cells at the end of nerve fibres to become over-sensitized. This is known as ‘wind-up’ and is one of the most common causes of chronic pain that occurs even though the root of the problem has been identified and treated.

The causes and effects of pain differ from case to case depending on the signals received by the brain and its interpretation. It affects the individual’s day to day activities and if persistent, can also have a harmful impact on mental health and psychosis. Pain is always handled, diagnosed and treated differently in all patients by drawing out the best possible solution to the problem.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Sorry to hear of your personal loss. But it is high time you come out of it. Grief is normal but continued grief is very harmful and requires treatment. If you see a psychologist regularly, you may feel much better and gain control over negativity. GENERALLY SPEAKING, BEFORE STARTING MEDICINES FROM A PSYCHIATRIST, IT IS ADVISABLE TO GET PSYCHO-DIAGNOSTIC TESTING DONE TO DETERMINE WHAT IS THE NATURE OF SYMPTOMS- IS IT PSYCHOLOGICAL –REQUIRING COUNSELLING/PSYCHOTHERAPY FROM A PSYCHOLOGIST OR DOES THE SYMPTOM REQUIRE MEDICINES FROM A PSYCHIATRIST. HOWEVER, WHEN SYMPTOMS ARE NO LONGER NORMAL OR TOUCHING UPON INSANITY, SEE A PSYCHIATRIST IMMEDIATELY. TREATMENT STARTED EARLIER WILL CONTROL THE PROBLEM VERY FAST. GET PROPER DIAGNOSIS FIRST FOLLOWED BY RIGHT TREATMENT. PLEASE GET DIAGNOSIS CONFIRMED FIRST THEN TAKE MEDICINES AS ADVISED. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT PROBLEM IS PSYCHOLOGICAL-THEN IT WILL NEVER BE CURED BY MEDICINES. YOU WILL NEED PSYCHOTHERAPY. YOU CAN BEGIN BY ONLINE CONSULTATION WITH DOCTOR OF YOUR CHOICE FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME/OFFICE. YOU CAN TALK ABOUT YOUR PROBLEM IN A TOTALLY CONFIDENTIAL MANNER AND GET TO KNOW THE DOCTOR WITH WHOM YOU ARE LIKELY TO INTERACT ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR TREATMENT.

My friend is a struggling director in the film industry, and has no income. He is having severe anxiety and depression disorder. And he's been suppressing it for a year or more. His family is in a horrible shape to support him for doctor's appointments and medicines. Neither do I have anything to help him. It's getting worse day by day. Every night he feels like as though he is going to die. Apart from his family really not being able to afford treatment, they do not understand why it is important to treat this, they don't understand the hell, and the severity of this. But I do as a year ago I had been through the same. What can be done?

There are a lot of social work organizations that help with free counseling and sometimes offer medications as well. If he contacts them he can get their support and seek professional help immediately. Any delay will only worsen his condition and he desperately needs timely help. If you are in a position to extend some financial help especially to meet the psychiatrist's help, it will go a long way. These visits are not so frequent and medication is a must, apart from the counseling. Therapy can be availed from the free counseling services that are surely available in your city. In the meantime please guide him with these guidelines to do the following sincerely because he could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Thank you for the query. Fever, body ache and headache are all suggestive of a probable viral infection (the prodromal phase of viral hepatitis may present in this way). Viral hepatitis generally begins with symptoms of fever and malaise, once the fever subsides, jaundice is manifested. Sometimes, it may not be clinically possible to detect jaundice, specially when bilirubin < 3 mg%. The tightness of her abdomen may be manifested, if she is having constipation though some other causes may be responsible. Since, there is a probable viral hepatitis (jaundice in simple words), outbreak in you area please get the following tests done (if not done already) - liver function test, anti hav igm and anti hev igm. You can get a dengue igm done also. An abdominal ultrasonography may be done, since she is complaining of abdominal symptoms. I would suggest you to visit your physician for a thorough clinical examination.

Dear lybrate user, nice of you to write to me and express your issue of concern. The fact that you have taken out the time to write to me about is shows that you would like to resolve the issue. I appreciate the concern for your kids and family. View life and the events that you pass through in an objective way.

Live your life according to that. In your free time pursue an interesting hobby. Take out some time also for meditation and silent reflection. If any event takes place that angers you look at it objectively, take 2/3 deep breaths before you respond. Do meet a counselor / therapist for further assistance. You are welcome to write to me and contact me if you do require any further assistance. Wishing you all the best!

I m 19 years old. From last two years I m feeling my brain is not as sharp as before. I am forgetting things too quickly. Please Suggest me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not clear why you feel so. ANy way for sharpening brain, there is no medicine and I can tell you these. Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it:) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory!’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory. 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i. E. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep!
