Hello, these are the home remedies:- 1. Garlic gives good results when it comes to cervical spondylosis symptoms. Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties help treat pain, swelling and inflammation in the neck and surrounding areas. Eat a couple of raw garlic buds on an empty stomach each morning with water. You can also take garlic capsules but only after consulting your doctor. Another option is to heat 2 to 3 crushed garlic cloves in a pan with some vegetable oil. Allow it to cool, then use it to massage the painful area for 5 to 10 minutes. Follow this with a warm bath. Do this 2 times daily. Take Hypericum 1X , 2 tabs twice daily with warm water. Revert me after 7 days.

This involves long term treatment and he must also get counseling from a professional. He can be taught about handling his feelings particularly fear, and to distinguish reality from fiction. This may take a lot of time but the slow process is better to develop trust. He should be taken for regular exercise, and put on a tight program of interesting activities and productive functions. The more one can get him out of his disturbed mind by distracting things to do the result will be very useful. The consistent use of the medication will gradually subdue him from any violent outbursts and make him more amenable to therapy. Even if that does not get the desired outcomes then consult with the doctor to treat him with a course of ECTs or electroconvulsive therapy. The ECTs are a last resort and is decided by the doctor only. If you let him be idle or let him decide what he is willing to do, he will rule you all completely and will not be functional. So at any cost do not let him choose and you may have to force him to comply with the therapeutic needs. If all of this fails, then you may have to look at institutionalizing him, which is a tough call but may become absolutely necessary.

There is something that is bothering you (like stress and boredom) and nail biting helps to calm you down. It is a fixation around an oral need and acts as the best way that you have found to deal with anxiety. Do look back into your childhood and see what type of anxiety you have not dealt with and that you had to resort to this adaptation to reduce the tension. Obviously, this will not sort out the problem and so you will continue this behavior even as a habit, for all and any troublesome situation. Once you learn how to deal with life?s pressures, you will not need this self-consoling pacifier. If necessary you could seek the help of a counselor and with his/her directions you could resolve this for good. There are some material means to make it difficult but they are cosmetic: you could wear gloves or mittens, and you could buy a liquid like ?Thum? or some equivalent like that to paint on your thumb twice a day. It will leave a harmless bitter taste to dissuade your biting that digit. Sometimes nail biters have other serious problems too like ADHD, separation anxiety or bed-wetting and so on. I advise, for a permanent solution, to work with a counselor. Studies show 60% of children and 45% of teenagers bite their nails.

Dear lybrate user, it appears that you are very sad, frustrated and feeling hopeless for something in your life. Suicide is not the solution to any problems in life. If you try to commit suicide and if you do not succeed you will be in greater trouble. If you succeed, you will create problems for your loved ones who will be left behind. Please consult a counsellor who will help you in this difficult situation. Presently, you are not able to think rationally. The counsellor will give you a different perspective about your life and also will help you to explore a number of options, so that you can move ahead in life. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Once you know that it is your irritating behavior is the reason, please change your behavior. Go and apologize with that friend and plead him to be your friend again. There is nothing wrong in it. Take care.

My boyfriend for 2.5 years, who is also my childhood friend, is my 3rd boyfriend and this time friendship being the base, we have that'thing' My problem is that we are mostly in a casual mood, teasing each other (which most often turns out to be a debate and then heats up). I would always prefer having a'hot' talk instead of a'heated' on. We are happy when we are together but this long distance relationship leads us to quarrel ultimately usually. We have great sex but it's only upto the time we are together. Yes, we don't talk about'those' things like sexting and talking dirty and all, though I have a serious desire to go for it. I know it will add on to our relationship and even talked to him very direct many times. I even started once or twice saying something hot but cutely because he always turns me down. He thinks talking about it will distract both of us in our goals and always has a big no-no to it. I made a reference as to if it doesn't make a difference while having sex then why shall he be thinking about it now. I am very devastated by trying and because of his irritatedness on my sexual fantasies (which he set aside all the time). I don't want to push him to it, I just want to experience talking things we never did with him. I usually tell him my fantasies but I want to know his too. Though he doesn't respond to my requests I would still want to go further in this fantasising part of love. Now, I seriously seek suggestions as to what ingredient to pit next.

Hello lybrate-user, you report you and your current boyfriend are sexually involved with each other, but, he refuses to talk about your sexual fantasies over the phone/ while he is away from you. He seems to believe such conversations will distract you both from your goals. In such a case it would be useful to self-evaluate what your goals are and also talk with your partner what his gaols are. This will help you both map your future and reduce some anxiety. It will also give you more clarity on why he is so reluctant to indulge your fantasies. This should help you move further. I hope this helps you. Good luck.

How the smoking is affecting in the behaviour of a person?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Smoking is a curse, especially when it becomes compulsive. People who smoke sometimes cannot think without first lighting up a cigarette. Smoking gives people a false sense of confidence. Silently they are actually destroying their confidence. The nicotine is a mood modifier, and temporarily calms you when you are agitated and stimulates you when you are down. This dies down soon enough. When you are in the company of smokers inevitably one day you will also tend to smoke. However strong you are, you will eventually succumb. It is sometimes a distraction from addressing your real issues. It can get so under your skin that you cannot see yourself without smoking because you are so enslaved to it. You develop nerve damage over a period of time and your skin gets wrinkled up. Worse of all, your erectile capacity is affected by each cigarette, that you would not be able to perform sexually over time. You lose your sense of smell and taste so that food is not so tasty! Now, why would a sensible man want to do all this for a few minutes of pleasure?! And to add to this senselessness women are joining the ‘club’ in large numbers every day. Smoking affects woman in worse ways than it does men.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 AM and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times, "Practice makes Perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing . Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6AM. Example some people they don't like Mathematics but it is essential for Life everyday and every time we are depended on Mathematics, Right from Doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds It is like love issues. still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

The medication you are taking for bipolar is one of the best medications for this disorder. However, a thorough evaluation and review of illness history and treatment records will be needed to comment on the duration of treatment. There are alternative medicines available, but the need for them can only be determined after examination. Additionally, considering that the medication is being consumed for a long time, it will be advisable to get certain blood tests to rule out common adverse effects of the medicine, at regular intervals. I advise you to get in touch with a psychiatrist for the above. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to consult a psychologist for counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.
