Better to do weekly once of masturabation. Smoking is always not good. Better to stop smoking. Masturbation is a healthy habit. But it is not good repeatedly. Weekly once it is normal status. Masturabtion is not cause for low weight. So do not think too much about it. Take very good food. Take rest. Sleep well. Develop a very good friendly circle. Be share and be friendly with others. Do not be alone. Feel always comfortable. Be think in positive manner. Do not develop negative thinking. Be positive and be friendly. Ok best of luck.

You may need to review your medication with these types of symptoms. The alcohol and smoking is not at all helping and the prognosis for your depression will only worsen with the continued use of these two substances: Kindly work towards stopping the same, immediately. I do not believe in astrologers or astrology, so kindly excuse my saying that they do not help at all. I would rather suggest you work with a counselor to deal with a lot of your issues and find ways to develop skills to cope with life. Your depression is clearly anger related and the suicidal drive must be worked on with counseling. Your disinterest in life itself is of concern. So do treat this as urgent and seek both psychiatric and counseling help.

It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. Boy/girl relationships are very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

De-Stress Yourself with Homeopathy

BHMS, C.S.D.(Skin Diseases), M.D.(Medicine), M.Sc. in Counselling and Psychotherapy
Homeopath, Delhi
De-Stress Yourself with Homeopathy

Feeling stressed out? Don’t reach for the pills just yet; there is a better option out there. Almost all conventional methods of treatment come with side effects, no matter how effective they are. Why not opt for an equally effective method, but without side effects, yes you heard it right! Homeopathy is a method of treatment that is effective and free from side effects.

Here are some homeopathic remedies that can help you de-stress:

1. Be active: Feeling stressed of late? Time to get your running shoes on. Research proves that exercise is one of the best remedies for stress, activities such as running and swimming release ‘endorphins’ in the system, which uplift your mood. So go for an early morning jog or a late evening swim, whatever suits you just make sure that you get some exercise on a regular basis.

2. Diet: Stress can result from an improper diet where the body is not well nourished. The body needs its share of various vitamins and minerals to function optimally. So it is important to eat a well balanced meal and avoid eating junk food. Eating unhealthy food can cause reactions in the body that lead to various diseases.

3. Be connected: Being connected does not mean being connected on social media, rather forming and nurturing ‘people to people’ connections. Talk to people, getting involved in team activities and participating in various sports. Form meaningful relationships with others so that you have someone to listen to you when you feel weary and low. Staying isolated can cause symptoms of stress to aggravate.

4. Start a hobby: If you don’t already have one, spend some time doing things that give you pleasure. It can be something that gives you a sense of accomplishment. Doing such activities will keep your mind active and reduce stress levels.

5. Medications: Apart from the above, homeopathy has medications such as Nux Vomica which is used to reduce anger and impatience. For people who are stressed due to overwork, Kali Phos is an effective remedy. In case of prolonged grief such as the one resulting from a sudden demise in the family, Natrum Mur and Ignatia are advised. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

Hi, I am 26 years old married and separated woman. Why am I often getting anger for no reason?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If this anger is of recent origin, it could be related to your separation. If you have been struggling with this all your life, it may have to do with something from your background. So assuming it is from your separation, then may be feelings you have regarding the manner of separation or some injustice you feel, or there may be some unsavory developments since. You want to identify other feelings apart from anger and meet with a counselor to help you deal with it appropriately. Exercise is very good to expend the energy of anger. Talking to a listening friend/counselor will do it best.

Fight for the relationship not against your partner
Don't don't suppress feelings. Every marriage has its ups and downs. One must learn to accept that there will be times when ideas of partners collide to create negative emotions. You will need to be calm and express yourself. It is very important to express your emotions.
Unspoken assumptions and hidden meanings lead to greater misunderstandings. Clear things within a reasonable time span. Do not wait for the new year to sort things out.
Intimacy cannot be ascertained by frequency of sex. A gentle caress, holding of hands or a mere eye contact can be sensual too.
Instead of spewing anger at your partner after a fight, sleep over it. You may want to express in a toned down manner the next day. How you say things can be more damaging than what you actually say.
Actions speak louder than words at times. In case you cannot get yourself to say sorry to your spouse, you can say it by actions. Something as simple as putting on your spouse's favorite music or slipping in a piece of chocolate into his/her bag can send the right message.
It's very essential to move on. Do not hang on to grudges or bring a controversial matter again after you've buried the hatchet.
Please give your partner space. If your partner needs to be left alone for a while, you must respect that.
Never speak ill about your partner's family. If your partner is frustrated with his/her parents, just lend a patient ear. Do not add comments that show his/her parents in bad light.
Your partner can be a great companion. Empathy and communication are very essential for a happy marriage.

His hemoglobin level is high but the bigger concern is his fatty liver. He needs to address his alcoholism immediately. If he is not willing it will become more difficult. But then he has no choice in this matter. He may be taken by force to the rehabilitation center after he is drunk or something like that if his wife gives her permission. The center themselves may come and pick him up. They will also address the high levels of hemoglobin as part of the treatment.

General Physician,
EPILEPSY OR FITS (As laymen say )
***********************************************
Seizure is a sudden change in behavior that is the consequence of brain dysfunction.
Approximately 0.5–1% of population has epilepsy.
ome seizures are provoked i.e. that occur in the metabolic derangement, drug or alcohol withdrawal and in situations like acute paralysis or acute encephalitis. Such patients are not considered to have epilepsy because these seizures would not recur in the absence of the provocation.
Less than 50% of epilepsy cases will have an identifiable cause such as head trauma, brain tumor, paralysis, infection, brain malformation etc.
Having one seizure does not always mean that the patient would always get a seizure.
One episode of seizure may not require treatment.
Hospitalization is required in the first seizure only if it is associated with prolonged post seizure altered level of consciousness.
Patients with unprovoked seizure may not be allowed to drive for some time.
In children, seizure can occur with high grade fever.
In adults, the first episode of seizure may be due to worms in the brain. In such a situation, it may be necessary to do an MRI test.
A patient with seizure can get married, live a normal life and produce children.
It is a misnomer that during a fit you need to make the person smell a shoe.
During epilepsy, never put the fingers inside the mouth of the patient as you could be bitten. Use a spoon instead to prevent tongue bite.
A patient with epilepsy fall will have stiffness in the body; on the contrary, patient with cardiac loss of consciousness will fall loose.
A seizure that lasts for more than 5–10 minutes requires specialized attention.

One of the reasons for hallucinations is psychotic disorder, but keep mind healthy, Simply drink cow's milk in night about 2 hours after dinner three times in a week strictly. Keep your mind busy in reading, studies or services which are constructive. Do take multivitamin tablet like Becozinc two or three times in a week after food. Keep discipline in eating, rest and work timings. Make it a point to do meditation of any genuine process, preferably transcendental meditation. Pl establish your divinity by chanting any Names of God Who you have faith in. Be tolerant and have patience. Pl see" For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy. And also" From wherever the mind wanders due to its flickering and unsteady nature, one must certainly withdraw it and bring it back under the control of the Self. Hope this helps.

You do this: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall and upper part of body lying down making 90 degree with legs for 10 mins. Your mind will be relaxed of all stress within 5-7 mins temporarily. Secondly, meditation also helps to reduce stress and depressed feeling. For permanent cure, please consult.

I have severe anxiety. I do sleep about 7.5 hours. But it doesn't seem to be enough. However I can't prolong my sleeping hours. What should I do to get a good sleep.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I have severe anxiety. I do sleep about 7.5 hours.
But it doesn't seem to be enough. However I can't prolong my sleep...
I don’t know if you are fully aware: you have mentioned that you are suffering from anxiety, 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 (check this out either on YouTube or Google), 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.

You may be an introvert. This is a problem of fearing people for what they think about you, especially the ones who know you best. Yes, people will often judge you but that is not the final word. When we try to read other people’s mind we will always think that they know the worst things about you, that your flaws are easily visible, and then you feel self-conscious and guilty. This is all far from the truth. People do not know you, even if they are married to you for many years! In fact, you do not know yourself for many years and may go to your grave with a minimum understanding of yourself. So, face people with confidence, knowing that they are the least knowledgeable about you. Sometimes, your family may not have socialized much and that can also give you a disadvantage about mixing and meeting people. This can be unlearned and you can make a new beginning and easily become a social butterfly. Many people have hesitations about social situations and are in the same boat: you have a lot of company. The bottom line is that you have afraid: deal with your fear and people will seem different, and not so threatening. This ability is a natural ability in all of us. If it was not stimulated early in your life, now is not too late. We are all gregarious by nature, and need each other, to the extent that we are all interdependent. I recommend that you attend a personality development course, attend the Toastmasters Club, and meet people by attending conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings, and social clubs. In time, this anxiety will dissipate and disappear, completely.

It looks like you are anaemic. If you have pain then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons.

Nidaanparivarjan means avoid the cause. You may avoid ac rooms. However pl boil sonth, kali mirch, tulsi, and small peepal in water and drink one cup thrice a day or make tea of it. Amritarishta liquid 20 ml + water tds for two week will not only cure fever but enhance appetite, blood (hb) level and detoxify the blood.
