I am going to depressed. There have no reason for it .I don't know how to recover it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am going to depressed. There have no reason for it .I don't know how to recover it.
10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

I am feeling very low, mentally. I haven't done anything in my life, the girl I like, left me and got a good job. I failed two years in college, people like to not talk with me, I don't have anyone to share my story. People are very judgmental this days. I can do better than the whole batch do. I lost my respect, my money and my love. Nothing left. But I want to rebuild all but now mental health is weaker to do new things, I feels sad, I like to go and do things for myself but I can't, I can't understand myself what I want, what I wanna do and what I am doing. I have no controls of my thoughts process. I am feeling depressed because I don't have a clue what direction I am going. People of my age going America and getting job in MNC. I feels very lonely, I can't take this more. I wanna free, happy with no worries, I don't wanna money, I wanna happiness. People are judging me on my marksheet and it's horrible and I am feeling not ok. What should I do?

Hi Lybrate user First of all, try to increase your self- esteem and in order to increase your self - esteem, you have to challenge and change the negative beliefs you have about yourself. At first you may feel like it is impossible but there are a lot of different techniques you can try to help youself - Do some activities daily that you enjoy. Try not to compare yourself to other people. Try to do regular exercise, eat healthy and get enough sleep. Set a goal for yourself and try to achieve them, it may be small but when you achieve them, you feel satisfied and proud of yourself and certainly you will feel more positive about yourself. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Ocd medications cannot reduce your iq. No misconceptions please. Ocd is treated with a combination of psychotherapy and medicine. Once you learn to manage symptoms, medicines can be stopped easily. Consult a psychologist. Take care.

Any condition that alters the normal walking pattern places increased stress on the si joints. This could include a leg length discrepancy (one leg longer than the other), or pain in the hip, knee, ankle, or foot. Patients with severe pain in the lower extremity often develop problems with either the lower back (lumbar spine) or si joints. Usually, if the underlying problem is treated, the associated lumbar spine or si joint dysfunction will also improve. There are many disorders that affect the joints of the body that can also cause inflammation in the si joints. These include gout, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. These are all various forms of arthritis that can affect all joints. Ankylosing spondylitis is an inflammatory arthritis that always affects the si joints. It can lead to stiffness and severe pain in the si joints, due to inflammation in the sacroiliac joints (sacroiliitis). As the disease process continues, the si joints can fuse together and have no range of motion. Once this occurs, there is no further pain associated with the si joints. Rarely, bacterial infection can involve the sacroiliac joints you need a check up.

She requires immediate medication from a good psychiatrist. All allopathic medicines have side-effects. You may try at nearest patanjali chikitsalaya for medicines without side-effects. Plus, if you help her practice all that is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit. You will get miraculous results. But, medicines definitely required, without delay.

I do not understand the connection between the accident and the depression. It is better for you to meet with a counselor and explore the reasons behind the depression. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you 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.

These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness.

Dear doctor, my father's age is 85, for the last 15 days he is suffering with the symptoms parkinson, he right hand and right leg is stiff while he is walking for his nature calls. Approached to neuro physician they daignise the medicines nurokind plus and syndropa 1mg. While administering these medicines he is so sleepy. So kindly advice me to prescribe some good medicines to recover as well as he himself to do his nature calls. Psychologically he is feeling as dependency on others. Several times we counseled him to boost up his willpower.

Hello, thanks for the query. Syndopa as a medication causes drowsiness in initial few days but I can assure you that the drowsiness wears off over a period of few weeks; so keep patience. Also benefits of syndopa shall become evident over next few days in form of decreased stiffness in limbs. At present, my main concern is your father might also be suffering from depression which is evident from his feelings of dependency, reduced willpower etc. So it will be wise to also consult a psychiatrist & take his/her opinion. Good luck.

Dear Vidhyasagar, Welcome to lybrate. At your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

At your age, you are walking on a path that is taking you away from success. At present your focus is studies+career but you dream of girls. When you will be at the age of marriage or girlfriend, you would have no career to support you. So, you will be nowhere. Stick to what is right as per age, everything else will be in line after that, as per your wish.

Media addiction in any form like tv, mobiles, I pads, gaming, movies etc are catching up in youngsters and need to be dealt with seriously. This is because it occupies quality time to be spent in more essential activities and disrupts attention span adversely. It is a sort of dependence and difficult to deal with. You may follow some suggestions - restrict your timings of watching tv to not more than 1-2 hours a day - identify your needs from tv and try to address then with innovative things - for entertainment engage in more constructive activities like talking and sis cussing things with friends and family. - playoutdoor games, exercise in gym, even a brisk walk with your dog is fine. - have a relaxing sleep at night, eat healthy - do relaxation exercises like yoga and meditation when feeling tense or anxious if still not working consult a psychiatrist.

Dear , congratulations on your quitting smoking. You could take lung function test to know the current condition of your lungs. To stop the urge to smoke, you could exercise, engage in physical activities, family outings, temples, fruit juices and tender coconut water etc. As a last resort you can use nicotine chewing gums or patches. Please post a private question to me with all the details. I am happy to help you with more tips. Take care.
