Hi, I'm 20 year old boy, my mom age 49. She always says that everyone around her is trying to kill her she even doubted me. She is not coming to the doctor for consultation. I and my father tried many things to take her to the doctor but she is not coming. Over 15 yrs she is like this only. What I have to do now for her.

Hi. I'm sorry to hear about your mother. From what you describe, she seems to be suffering from mental illness, the nature of which can only be clearly ascertained after detailed evaluation. Many people suffering from mental illness are resistant to visiting doctors, and families are often not able to force them to consult a doctor, leading to a delay in commencement of care, and consequent long term damage. I would suggest you to take the assistance of the local police for escorting her to a psychiatrist. Another option is to contact your local hospital's psychiatry department. Many hospitals (especially government run mental health institutions, such as ihbas, in delhi) have mobile mental health units for this very purpose. Take care.

Lot of questions running in my mind while going to bed so I couldn't have sound sleep. Mostly, negative thoughts are coming in my mind in series and trying to resolve the problems and ultimately I couldn't slept. Pl suggest what to do to have sound sleep at least for 6-8 hrs.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I don’t know if you are fully aware: you have mentioned that you are suffering from a lot of questions running through your mind, which can cause a lot of anxiety or the other way around; the anxiety can cause a lot of questions, which in itself can disturb your sleep. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i. E. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i. E. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT, then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear Doctor, My 28 years old unmarried daughter feels that her parents do not have emotional bonding with her so she wants to stay away from them and doesn't want to share her feelings. She has an online affair with a guy with whom she keeps on chatting. As a parent what should we say to make her emotionally secure from our side, should we let her stay alone somewhere else?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Your daughter is grown up and upto some extent matured. If she feels that parents are emotionally nonmsupportive, then, there has to be a reason. Don't get agitated and be patient. Talk to your daughter regarding this. No need to let her stay alone. If you desire so,

I was feeling so depressed. I was not interested in doing any thing. I need to be active please help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, you are feeling sad because may be some of your expectations are not met. It will be helpful if you can talk about your feelings. Talk to someone who you can trust and who will be able to guide you properly. Talk to your parents, teachers, relatives who are close to you. By doing this you will get a different perspective about your life and you may also get some direction in life. Life is difficult for most of the people, but how they want to live it makes them happy or sad. Imagine, how and where you would like to see yourself after 10 years. Then make a concrete plan to attain that goal. Remember, what you do today is going to affect your future. If you want a better future, work for it now. Try to understand the reason for your inactivity. If it is laziness, make a conscious effort to get out of if. Stay in the company of positive people. Take charge of your life. 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!

Hi need advice for my wife who does not believe in normal way of living. She has peculiar food habits, she does not like to be with people and prefer being alone, her thought process on life, job, children, family, home is very different to majority of the population. She has high temper and forgets things fast. Her hobbies are colouring pictures, collect small pieces of cloth from tailor shop and make packets. She has asked me to leave job and settle in place away for civilization. She questions me if I like to go to restaurant or stay in hotel, for her important is to stay in open maybe in campervan staying in hotel. She does not like clean house and will keep the cloths all a cross the floor and will not care to even clean. Even though I try to stay with her most of the time and take care of most of her request, she believes I do not care for her and wants to leave me. She does not have too many friends and would not like to go home and stay with her mother. Her thinking is very different from common people and I want to know if it is normal. She does not believe in medicines or doctor and hence cannot convince her to meet a doctor.

If a person is in depression, taking too much tension for his carrier or studies, Is it normal that the person may face hairfall or other health related issues?

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Yes, stress will induce the vagus nerve which increases the heart rate, acidity and adrenalin secretion. To avoid this do regular exercise and meditation. Walking alone is also a kind of meditation and avoid using music while you walk.

Autism: Treat It With Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Autism: Treat It With Homeopathy

Autism is defined as a neurobiological pervasive development disorder that includes lack of social skills and inability to reciprocate to social interactions. The patient may also have intellectual and cognitive deficits and problems in communication (verbal as well as non-verbal).

Conventional medicine is mostly used to treat some of the symptoms but is never used to cure or provide remedies for autism. A proper professional homeopath will be able to guide you to get the best results for your child and reduce all the problems of autism, if not outright cure it.

Some of the medications that could be used to treat autism are as follows:

  1. Cuprum Metallicum: This works wonders when the child is being very obsessive, angry and is inflexible, tense and is very aggressive towards their parents. Some of these children may even exhibit malicious behaviors and are usually averse to touch or being approached.
  2. Androctonus: A child or a patient who tends to swing wildly from a stable good mood to a destructive mode can be calmed down or evened out by Androctonus. These children also exhibit behaviors of suspiciousness and quickness to act on their compulsion.
  3. Carcinosin: This is very helpful in children affected by autism who are talented, but are obsessive, compulsive, stubborn and also have sleep related issues. These children may also have addictive disorders.
  4. Agaricus: This medication is very good for children who may be mentally and physically awkward and show symptoms like indifference, muttering, talking, shouting or singing but not answering to direct calls or questions. Agaricus is very effective for children who suffer from involuntary jerking when they are awake.
  5. Helleborus: This is a very effective medication when the child is slow and under active and seems to be depressed most of the time. Some of these children may also have muscular weakness and helleborus is very effective in treating them. These are only a few examples of how homeopathy can provide remedies for your autistic child and thus is an effective solution.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Dear, are you sure, this is depression? you should be able to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. You are disappointed because of some reason you know very well and therefore you are worried, sleepless, sad etc. These things happen. Nothing to worry. Ask yourself, why should I worry and cry over and over again instead of finding an alternative? once you introspect, your problem will start solving itself. Take care.

Hi, This is regarding someone I know, Male 29 years old and currently pursuing his masters. I wanted to ask whether he needs any kind of treatment for mood disorder, depression, etc. There are mood swings and sometimes he is very confident to discuss about the opportunities he has got in the business plans he is making but this lasts for a short span of time and later he would be regretting about the life decisions he has made till now and not being able to do anything of his life till now and wasting the parent’s money on some worthless college where he is not being able perform. He is unable to take any decision on his own and would a consultation a thousand times to take a step forward. He has not been able to concentrate on his assignments and now fear failing in assignments and examinations, for which his excuse is that he is just thinking about it and when it comes to transformation of his thoughts, I think he is not been able to perform to his maximum threshold. He always has a fear that he is not doing worthy enough and has not done anything in the past also. He would keep to himself in the college and not talk much to anyone during normal course but when excited he would share ideas to many people and talk to people he hasn’t during years of time, but will also be very sensitive to get aggravated on small matters also and would then spoil the relations sometimes. I hope this leads anywhere to you, if you need any-more information regarding this, let me know. Thanks in advance.

I have this prob for more than a month. I had a similar issue earlier sometime before. Could you pls suggest if I can take Ecitane (Trihexyphenidyl) 2 mg - 1 tablet in the morning and 1 tablet in the night along with the above tablets to reduce muscle stiffness and excessive shaking of leg? Note: I am under regular medication since 2011.

I think. As you r on medication since 2011 for ocd wid relieving symptoms. Symptoms you mentioned might be part of restless leg syndrome. Which can be because of medications ,anxiety. And other causes. Usually benzodiazepine like clonazepam is used which you r already taking. Yes in addition to this you can try trihexyphendyl or levodopa carbamamazapine. For your symptoms. U can also avoid caffeine. Maintain sleep hygiene. Leg massage can also help.
