Alzheimer's is a neuro-degenerative disease in which the size of the brain cells decreases and leads to problems in thinking and memory. As far as management of this condition is concerned, it is not a one time process. It is a long term process, however somethings that you can control are, make sure he is not smoking, if he is, engage him into tobacco cessation counselling. Make sure he is taking a healthy and a balanced diet and get him involved in some sort of physical exercise after consulting your physician. Get his routine tests done on to rule out hypertenstion, diabetes and high cholesterol levels that aggravates the condition. You can always stay in touch to keep me posted about his condition and progress. If still the condition deteriorates, please visit a psychiatirst.

How to avoid Cigerate smoking. My Father is 46 years of old he smokes every day. I want to make him to stop smoking cigerate. Slowly how to make him to stop ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally you must send a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of his age and quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even harder. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But his desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep him occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds.

Dear lybrate-user, 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 psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Dear lybrate user...Lack of concentration and making careless mistakes, being restless and anxious about everything, being on the edge always shows that you have a lot of anxiety. If this anxiety is pervasive and is interfering with your social and functional domains of life it is more of an anxiety disorder. I need to know more about your symptom duration for suggesting a better management plan. Take care

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

MBBS, DPM

Dear lybrate-user, considering your wife's age and symptom of burning sensation, I would advise her to do few blood check ups like fasting sugar, vit b12 and folate level, serum calcium level, d3 and thyroid profile. After seeing the reports appropriate supplements have to be added. Till then let her continue all the tablets as prescribed so that she continues to cook and keep the house.

4 Everyday Habits That Can Kill Your Love Life

MBBS, MCCEE, Fellowship in Sexual Medicine
Sexologist, Jaipur
4 Everyday Habits That Can Kill Your Love Life

Daily habits have the power to leave you limp during or after intercourse. These habits can result in low libido and low desire to engage in intercourse with your partner. However, once you identify them, it is easier to rectify them.

Here are a few daily things which might leave you limp:

  1. Not nourishing your libido enough: One major reason of a depreciating sex drive can be attributed to low libido, which can be an outcome of poor dietary choices. Add more aphrodisiacs to your diet such as oysters, dark chocolates, bananas, strawberries and yogurt which are rich in zinc, magnesium and other minerals which help in increasing your sex drive.
  2. Over-masturbation: Engaging in self-stimulation too many times a day can result in fatigue and other health problems. The acceptable number of times a person should masturbate in a day is 2-3 times, however, if you engage in masturbation more than that, you can experience problems like a limp, flaccid penis and reduced sexual drive.
  3. Increase in insulin levels: Consuming too much sugar during the day can result in spiked insulin (blood sugar levels) in your body. This ends up making you feel more lethargic. It was recently discovered that in men, insulin raises ‘oestrogen’, leading to low libido and in graver cases, erectile dysfunction. Another study linked excess glucose or blood sugar with a dip in the levels of testosterone, thus, leaving you limp before/after intercourse.
  4. Stress: Though some amount of stress is considered normal, when the levels of distress go sky-rocketing, it might leave you limp as if affects your sexual performance. Instead of relieving stress, sex ends up feeling more like a liability which can result in you having problems getting an erection or getting an orgasm. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am fed up from my family issues and I feel hopeless, I feel uncontrollably and insecure like personal as well as family. How I can come out this situation.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Family is a get together of two or more entirely different personalities who are compelled to who are almost everything among themselves. In that scenario, it is quite natural, differences crop up. Each member of the family should learn to respect the other. It takes time and effort and self understanding. In most of the cases, an effective family counseling will do the trick. I suggest online family counseling. Take care.

Dear, That is natural. Some medicines act as suppressing agents and if you don't take those medicines, brain craves for it. You should try to manage your anxiety with psychotherapy techniques and then slowly taper the medicine down under the supervision of your psychiatrist or psychologist. Do not stop the medicine suddenly. Take care.

I am suffering from mental disorders like stress and depression. I don't want to take medicines. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are serious about not taking medication, you will have to work very hard and it is difficult but not impossible. In that case you will need to go for intense counselling and work out the depression. S/he will guide you to work on several other related issues to help you walk through life and handle every day routines very effectively. If not, you may also consider working with medication and counseling and if you are without depression break down for three years at least, you could be weaned off of the medication! It is not enough to rely only on medication, alone. So consider what I suggest really well. Any which way, you need to do the following: this is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of 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 scotching heat. I hope you have someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings too.

I am suffering from depression from quiet some time now and I do not want to take medicines. What should I do to avoid depression without taking medicines?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Treating a long standing depression without medicines is like treating a fracture with getting a plaster done. However you may opt for congnitive behaviour therapy sessions under a trained therapist. The therapist may decide the number of sessions required according to the type and severity of depression that you have. You may also try lifestyle modifications like daily exercises, relaxation techniques like deep breathing, joining groups, communities, nurturing your hobbies etc. These help in alleviation of symptoms of depression too.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I agree that this is not that serious a problem. There have been many cases of relationships developing through these social networks, which have destroyed many families. But I like that in your case you seem to have your head on your shoulders and seem to be a sensible girl. Your husband may be feeling insecure and is probably taking precautionary measures. You must have a serious talk with him about being bored at home the whole day and having nothing to do. He may suggest some good activities that will help you. Being idle is the devil?s workshop and that could be worse. It is also very difficult for him to keep tabs on you, if he travels out of the country so often. However, it still does not help to do things behind his back when he doesn?t like it. There is a trust problem, and either it his difficulty to trust you or you have given him cause for concern. If it is the latter, you must assure him. Sometimes, this is a good sign of how much he wants you all for himself, but to control you over this matter may be a bit far-fetched. Negotiate with him and find a via media approach. My suggestion is to tell him that he can check all your contacts and correspondence, until he is really assured and can trust you completely. Even when he is out of the country, keep everything for him to see as it is without any editing. Share the password so that he can examine the interactions even when he is away to be able to trust you. You must also tell your contacts not to address you with endearments that may be misunderstood, especially by your in-laws (as an excuse). I recommend that you find something that is not threatening to him and do that instead. For example, meet with your friends over meals, start a ladies? club, a women?s clubs, social get-togethers etc.

General Physician,
Ou have to get mind control by meditaion and yoga and control your anger and a counselling is the best for you . Ican give anger control tips ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Anger is among the gamut of emotions we exhibit as a reaction to a situation, and it is a 'normal' emotion too as long as it is kept under control. Some people have the propensity to explode when pushed to the extreme. They keep swallowing their emotions until they can finally do it no more, and erupt like a volcano. Others dealing with extreme anger are like a ticking time bomb. You'll never know what you unwittingly say or do can trigger an explosion. In either case, anger that cannot be controlled comes with a physical reaction. Your heart beats faster preparing you for both action and reaction. Your breathing quickens. You may clench your fist, tighten your shoulders and go into a defensive position. The problem arises out of the fact that it is almost impossible to feel anger and empathy at the same time. An angry person is seldom sensitive to the wellbeing of his victim, and hence may lash out verbally and sometimes physically. Such things done in the heat of the moment mostly leaves us with regrets.

HELLO lybrate-user, Please note. Systemic lupus erythematosus, often abbreviated as SLE or lupus, is a systemic autoimmune disease (or autoimmune connective tissue disease) in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. There are many kinds of lupus. The most common type is systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which affects many internal organs in the body. SLE most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable, with periods of illness (called flare-ups) alternating with remissions. Remidies. If you keep on signs and symptoms Try to: See your doctor regularly. Having regular checkups instead of only seeing your doctor when your symptoms worsen may help your doctor prevent flare-ups, and can be useful in addressing routine health concerns, such as stress, diet and exercise that can be helpful in preventing lupus complications. Get adequate rest. People with lupus often experience persistent fatigue that's different from normal tiredness and that isn't necessarily relieved by rest. For that reason, it can be hard to judge when you need to slow down. Get plenty of sleep at night and naps or breaks during the day as needed. Be sun smart. Because ultraviolet light can trigger a flare, wear protective clothing — such as a hat, long-sleeved shirt and long pants — and use sunscreens with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 55 every time you go outside. Get regular exercise. Exercise can help you recover from a flare, reduce your risk of heart attack, help fight depression and promote general well-being. Don't smoke. Smoking increases your risk of cardiovascular disease and can worsen the effects of lupus on your heart and blood vessels. Eat a healthy diet. A healthy diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Sometimes you may have dietary restrictions, especially if you have high blood pressure, kidney damage or gastrointestinal problems. Otherwise, get 5 to 6 treatments of acupuncture it will be of great help.
