Hello, this could be due to stress factors, you need to meet nearby psychiatrist who would get your detailed history. If you fit in any kind of diagnosis, he/she may suggest treatment options, medicines if require or different techniques like stress management, anger management, relaxation techniques or techniques to cope up with your problems. However this all depends on your history. Nothing to worry this is treatable condition. Good luck.

I think I am getting addicted on tobacco. I can't stop smoking. How to get rid of it?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Hello doctor, my daughter is 3.6 years old and studying in a good school, BT she does not reply if we asked something, she replies rarely, she does not speak clear also can not jump.

She is only 3.6 years old. It looks like you are being overprotective mother. Give her space to grow mentally, it does not look like any disease. If she cannot jump due to any physical reasons, do get her checked by doctor, but if she is stubborn, leave her alone, let her jump around at her will, let her study in a play school/ regular school. Remember too much discipline can be binding for growth of a kid.

I am 39 years old, and I am being treated for bipolar affective disorder alongwith counselling and a specified course of medications. But I have a laziness throughout the day but in the evening time I feel better. Please tell me whether I should consult a hypnotherapist /not? I am from family with severe socio-economic problems.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
I think your psychiatrist is taking care. Why thinking of hypnotherapy? if required your psychiatrist might suggest. That method is also not full proof. Continue his medicines. If feel not satisfied take a second opinion. But remember, you need to continue meds for longtime. Don't discontinue treatment without your doctor's advice.

Hi my cousins brother has epilepsy since last 9 years with medicines. How much time he need to continue with medicine. Is it curable epilepsy completely ?Please tell.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Epilepsy is a treatable disorder. Medicines have to be taken for atleast 3 years after the last fit has occurred. If seizures keep on occurring at intervals then medicines need to be changed or added accordingly, and further continued for 3 years. For any further queries on the disorder or treatment options, you may consult online.

Dear Lybtrate User, I think you need a companion. You need someone who will listen to you, will share your worries. You mentioned that you are living alone in Chennai. If possible, talk your husband everyday share your routine with him, ask him about his daily routine. Communicate with your son, understand his challenges and also share your thoughts with him. If this is not possible, talk to a Counsellor either personally or on phone. You are sad and lonely. You need to give an outlet to your chocked up emotions. Please talk to a Counsellor. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, its sad to loose somebody close, of course this pain can never be healed completely. But one has to carry his life forward in a happy manner. Usually after 3 months people tend get recovered from the loss and do not feed sad. Since you are still having these symptoms you may need therapy in form of counselling sessions or medicines. More so, if this is effecting your daily routine and work, you do need treatment.

How Stress Creates Depression: 6 Ways to Manage Stress

B.A.M.S.
Ayurveda, Dehradun
How Stress Creates Depression: 6 Ways to Manage Stress

Stress is a normal physical response to events that make us feel threatened or upset our balance in some way.

When we sense danger – whether real or imagined – the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction, or stress response. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting us. So it’s important to know effective ways to manage stress.

Stress can lead to depression. In fact depression is one of the major outcomes of stress.

How Stress Creates Depression

From the Ayurvedic point of view, most depression is an imbalance of doshas. A dosha is a fundamental principle in the body that goes out of balance. If left untreated imbalanced doshas can lead to more serious problems.

There are three doshas in the body.

Kapha dosha is the earth and water principle in the body. Kapha forms the glue and structure of our bodies. It’s qualities are heaviness, slowness and steadiness. Depression is an imbalance of kapha dosha that begins to set in when stress occurs.

In depression, first the air principle (Vata dosha) and then the fire principle (Pitta dosha) get out of balance. In other words, the brain’s electro chemistry has an erratic overreaction to a stressful circumstance. This triggers a loss of enzymatic activity in the metabolism.

The body responds by trying to glue everything down, bringing about heaviness, darkness, and stagnation. The mind-body interprets this as a negative message of hopelessness and depression ensues.

In other words, because of specific etiological factors, Vata from the colon, pitta from the intestine, or Kapha from the stomach enters the general circulation and lodges in the nervous system. These imbalanced doshas interfere with the normal functioning of the mind and nervous system and cause depression.

So before stress gets control over your body and mind you must learn ways to manage stress. It is actually easy to do.

6 Ways To Manage Stress

1. Keep a daily routine.

If you follow a daily routine, stress never can be a part of your life.

In Sanskrit the daily routine is called dinacharya. It means to merge your daily cycle with the natural cycle of the Sun, Moon, Earth and the other planets in our solar system.

Dinacharya is one of the best things that you can do to stay in balance, prevent disease and heal almost any disease. Set your daily routine from the moment you wake up to the time you go to bed in a correct manner and follow it regularly without any excuse.

Fix your time of waking up, breakfast, lunch, dinner, time with family and time you go to bed. To conquer stress, it is very important to manage your daily routine in this way.

2. Get A Relaxing Massage

An oil massage is an integral part of the daily routine recommended by Ayurveda for overall health and well-being. Traditional Ayurvedic texts wax eloquent on the benefits.

Give yourself a full body oil massage on a daily basis. It is nourishing, pacifies the doshas, relieves fatigue, provides stamina, pleasure and perfect sleep, enhances the complexion and the luster of the skin, promotes longevity and nourishes all parts of the body.

3. Do Yoga 

Make Yoga and Meditation a your part of your daily life. Yoga helps to connect our body to our mind and our mind to our soul. This is the best natural way to health and happiness, realizing our inner self and our true nature.

4. Meditate Daily

An ordinary person may consider meditation as worship or prayer. But it is not so. Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. Watching your breath is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation.

5. Receive Shirodhara

Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic therapy where warm oil or other liquid is poured in a continuous stream over the forehead. This treatment is perfect for stress and other imbalances of the nervous system. It’s deeply relaxing, rejuvenating and loved by all.

Shirodhara balances the doshas, soothes the mind and gives complete mental relaxation. Find shirodhara therapy near you.

6. Destress Your Life

There are lots of natural way to protect yourself from stress.

To remain healthy physically as well as mentally, live in harmony with nature. Go for Ayurveda procedures like Panchakarma and its associated treatments. Shirodhara, nasyam and massage will bring balance to the doshas. You can receive them at least once in a week or fortnightly.

Psychologist, Delhi
I hope that the new course that you have joined is of your choice and liking. First and foremost, do not hold any guilt of having dropped engg. It is not the end of the world. We all make wrong decisions at times and there is no harm in realising it changing course. Right from the beginning, start to set goals for yourself with respect to your studies. Be regular with your classes and engage yourself in discussions with friends regarding issues related to your course. Be confident, focus on yourself- avoid any kind of comparison with anyone. You are unique and so are your abilities. Find your strength area and work on it. Have faith in yourself, you'll be able to complete this new course, if you approach it with the right attitude. Start some physical exercise, yoga or meditation to improve your confidence and concentration.
