Hi I will prescribe you some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeo shops. Try to get original medicines. Mix 5 drops of white chestnut + 5 drops of aspen + 5 drops of cherry plum + 4 drops of mimulus. Add these to 100 ml water and drink twice daily (morning and night) for 6 months.

I have been suffering from stress and insomnia for the last couple of years. On an average, I am able to sleep for less than six hours a day. For the last few months, I am feeling weak, physically and sexually. It feels like that there is some sort of hormonal imbalance. I also have been suffering from IBS for the last six years. It suddenly started in late 2010, when I was still attending college. Then it stopped for around a month, then restarted, and any gastroenterologist is unable to cure this. However, I feel both these issues (weakness and IBS) are not directly related, as IBS is six years old, but this feeling of physical and sexual weakness is just a few months old. Please advise.

Your stress is causing all these problems. Meet with a counselor and sort out your stress for vast imp[rovement. In the meantime, do the following for your sleep problems: 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.

Dear lybrate user...I can understand your agony, but in life there will be numerous instances when it will be mandatory for you to take your stand and disagree with other people. Always the one's who keep their own point at the top priority are the one's who leave a mark behind them. Everyone is different and everyone has different body structure and shape. No one gets greatness for their external appearances even the movie stars, but what they get greatness for is the expertise they have got. You need to be proud to be yourself, to be a human being and once you start respecting yourself, people around you will start respecting you. There is no reason always for people who bully others, but the motivation for them to bully is the distress and reaction they produce in the other individual. Stop giving them the thrill they get by bullying you and this will mark the beginning of change. I hope this is useful to you. Take care

Hello lybrate-user, I understand that dealing with mood related disorders are always challenging where deciding the time frame for recovery is not realistic. Psychiatrist prescribes medicine bases on various factors which are case specific and always takes review after a short priods. The reason is to modify the dosage best suitable to patient. Remember medicine itself doesn't cure everything the patient also have to adapt the healthy lifestyle. Recovery is process and medicines are part of it other than this patients should actively participate in self help groups, self care techniques. The complete treatment model consist medicines, psychotherapy, scientific approach of psychological assessment and counselling. Patient's family work as a support network and patient empowerment themselves for continuous care. To prevent relapse patients need to adhere to life style changes, medicine and counselling.

Dear lybrate user. You just feel weak and sad, like going in great despair. But formal talking is ok. Are you disappointed due to some life events or academic events? otherwise, this could be just your personality type. Change your attitude according to your personality type. Take care.

I am a college student. I have recently developed an urge for smoking. I smoke 4 cigarettes a day. But the fact is I still have control over myself and I want to discontinue it. Little bit of guidance and suggestion would surely benefit me to quit smoking now as I believe in the latter stages it's might turn into dire consequences if I keep smoking. Please help.

I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1Tishya,this Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking . 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I suggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. Myself is a homoeopathic doctor and I can also suggest you medcines which can help you quitting this habit but I think you have that guts to quit this habit on your own and if you still feels like to start a medicine then consult me.

Dear. From the given description, it seems that you are not actually enjoying the job you are doing. Or you are just doing it mechanically. Did you like your present job? if no, the best option is to change your job. But make sure you select your type of job. Take care.

Yes definitely we can help you. I would have been happy had you told me, your age, marital status and who care your family members. Anyway, it seems you had a recent set back and you want to lower your burden by sharing with your close confidants. That is exactlycwhat we also suggest. You need to see a therapist who will help in ventilation. You also have features of depression. This is why you have craving for food and disturbed sleep. Your Neural psychiatrist will decide you about whether you need a medicine as well. I think you need. Also if you get any thoughts about ending your life, please seek help immediately. Please revert to me telling what steps you have taken.

If a mother has seizures is there any possibly that even child could have the same after birth? And what difficulties or problem will the fetus have during pregnancy when the mother have epilepsy during her pregnancy? mainly in the first trimester?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Epilepsy is a neurological disease and children of person suffering from epilepsy are more vulnerable to have seizure disorder. This means children may have or may not have the disease. If a pregnant lady suffers from epileptic fits it may cause abortion or some birth defects. Secondly few anti epileptic drugs may also harm the fetus. So before planning pregnancy the lady should be put on some safer anti epileptic drug. Folic acid prevents the harmful effects of anti epileptic drugs and reduces the chances of birth defects in child.
