I am suffering from fever and cold from two day and also from body pain pls advice me. I am 20 year old.
Take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3 days. Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue. For further queries get back to me.

No its not due to masturbation. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

Hi! I am 21 years old and I have been smoking for past 3 years. I started with 2-3 cigarettes a day then near to a packet. Now I have reduced it to 2-3 again. Is there any way that I can detoxify my body completely and quit smoking?

MD - Alternative Therapies, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hello Happy Singh , For deep detoxifying effect take 4-5 sittings of steam suana . Some home remedies are - # consumption of citrus fruits. # chew cinnamon stick whenever you feel the urge to smoke. # chewing of neem or basil leaves is also effective. # But complete detoxification and to kill the habit you need the support of medicines adviced after detailed case taking , for which you can consult me. Regards, Dr. Heena

Specialist in Psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Please don't encourage her any surgery if it's not necessary! also, it doesn't make much sense to rush into a marriage. No point dreading the next 50 years of your life just because you can't handle your parents' pressure or because you can't think straight. She needs to decide if she wants to have a successful married life.

Both can occur together and overlap. No problem treatment is similar. In anxiety you feel discomfort, weakness, can not rest, palpitations etc Your sleeplessness social withdrawal poor feeding weeping etc are more in favour of depression So please get treated for depression and you will be alright.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand the situation you are going through the only person help you is you yourself. Because of one person you can't burden your mind up to the level which take away your peace. Darkness is created by you and you can convert it in to light. Just catch up with your old friends go and do the activities you do earlier. Life means moving on. Don't make your self servant of your thoughts control them. Do one activity stand in front of mirror and say all your thoughts in front of that. Then say I am the best and I love my self a lot. This will really help you in overcoming with your problem. Try this for a week then message me. Life is a gift so never think of sucide again.

Autism - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

BHMS, MD, P.G Homeopathy

Autism - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

The human brain is a unique and intricate organ, which performs many functions both consciously and subconsciously. However, during the formation of the brain within the mother's womb, the slightest of changes can cause damage to it, which manifest in many forms after birth. One of the forms it may manifest in is Autism.

What is Autism?
Autism, sometimes also classified as part of the Autism Spectrum disorder or ASD is a disorder of brain development, which will affect a child's capability to interact socially, in communicating through verbal and nonverbal means as well as exhibit repetitive behaviors. Some severe cases of these behaviors may also result in self-harm as well. 

Other than this some other characteristics may be:

  1. Major to minor difficulties in motor coordination
  2. Intellectual disabilities
  3. Attention problems
  4. Gastrointestinal problems
  5. Sleep related problems among others

How homeopathy can help
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. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  4. 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. 
  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. However, you may need to consult a homeopathic doctor who can tailor make doses and medications after diagnosing the specific symptoms that you child may be having.

She is suffering with ocd which is fear of contamination she always thinks about purification of house due to fear from religious value and consequently she will wash hand even her own hair touched and will do for a longer than normally we do. As it is normal to touch all these thing she becomes busy towards her compulsion. If we try to stop her she starts abusing loudly so that we feel embarrassed but she doesn't think. She always talk about how poisonous it is? As lizard and any wasp, mosquito etc. She washes her hand after feeling to be touched but really she didn't touch it. When we try to stop we feel embarrassing due to dirty words language used by her. If I do not interrupt how she will overcome from it as she also frustrates with these activity and if I leave alone again there is problem she always makes situation quarrelsome and then after she calms for some duration. So very disgusting situation we face she doesn't care about her activity and never regret for embarrassment due to slang and abusive word which cannot be expected from a good family. She always feels herself right. Pls give a proper solution to resolve issue as it is frustrating too much me.

It is likely she is having OCD. Fear of contamination, excess hand washing, checking, anxiety and irritability are some of the features. Consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. The best treatment is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy.

Actually your loneliness is due to 2 reasons------ 1.Rude behaviour of you husband as you had high expectations from him. 2.Mentally diverted your thoughts towards your boyfriend who is abroad as you think that he care for you a lot than your husband. But you are wrong here.Yes ,I am sorry to say but we call it cheating only Pooja.See this is just the beginning of your life and this is the time to enjoy life.Be loyal to your husband.It is a universal fact that FEELINGS ATTRACTS FEELINGS and you have no feelings for your husband and in return you also get the same neglected feelings from your husband.So just try to forget your friend abroad and give your full love ,attention and care to your husband and see how beautiful is your life.Dont try to travel in two boats simultaneously,you will drown one day and ruin your life.

Depression - 4 Ways You Can Manage It

M.Phil in Clinical Psychology, Ph.D. Psychology
Psychologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Depression - 4 Ways You Can Manage It

Depression is a psychological condition, which can develop in men and women of any age. No one can identify the cause of depression. It can be excessive stress, failure in relationships, academic pressure and various other issues of these sorts. But depression in itself is a serious condition and needs to be treated as soon as possible, lest it aggravates.

Before trying to deal with depression through medicines and counselling, it is important to recognise the signs and symptoms of this condition and try as much as possible to come out of it on your own. There are certain natural remedies, which work during the initial stages of depression. It is only when these fail or it aggravates that the patient must be rushed for immediate counselling. Here are certain natural ways of treating depression.

  1. Sleep well: A sign that you are suffering from depression is lack of sleep. One does not get sleep no matter how hard he/she tries. Even after having sleeping pills, one does not get the correct amount of sleep that he/she requires. This triggers insomnia, thereby causing other health problems to develop. Thus, sleeping is mandatory. If needed, you must force yourself to sleep.
  2. Eat well: It is often said and seen that depression leads you to binge eat or over eat. Overeating would include indulging yourself to too much chips, chocolates, junk food and the like. This would unnecessarily make you gain extra pounds and can trigger obesity. Alternately, it has been seen that the patient lacks the desire to eat anything. This too can lead to adverse effects as the body balance gets disturbed.
  3. Exercise: Regular exercise helps in diverting your mind to something else for a little while. It also helps in keeping you fit and healthy. In case you do not like to exercise, you can opt for jogging or running or even simply taking a walk out in the open. Going out and inhaling fresh air, makes you focus on positive thoughts for a while. A daily dose of positive thoughts can do wonders for you.
  4. Experiment with yourself: Try something new each day that you have not tried ever before. This might include cooking, knitting, riding a bike and the likes. This keeps you busy and keeps your mind off the negative thoughts. What’s more, you might discover some of your hidden talents.

These are some of the natural remedies that you can opt for to fight depression before consulting a psychologist for the same.

Dear , amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant. It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression. I am sure the medicine was prescribed by a psychiatrist because your mother needed such a treatment. The medicine is not harmful for her. Work with your psychiatrist for proper care and cure. No self judgement. Take care.

Six hours of sleep is good enough, if you're having a sound sleep. Some changes in your eating habits are a must. Eat small portions of food at small intervals. Add more of fresh fruits and salads to your diet. Have lots of water- it keeps your body hydrated and improves your blood circulation, therby keeping you alert. While studying read aloud whatever you are studying - explain the content to someone, or an imaginary friend- pretend to teach someone- your understanding will improve, so will your concentration and memory. Make points of the content. Revise more often. Before sleeping just repeat the points to yourself. Exercise, or play some outdoor sport everyday for at least 40-60 mins.
