Last week my uncle had a block in his coronary artery and Angioplasty has been done. He was a chain smoker. I am having a doubt that, how the smoking causes the block?

Homeopath, Gurgaon
Tobacco smoke contains co gas, which helps bad cholesterol to adhere to arteries, particularly coronary artery, so smokers are prone to coronary artery disease.

It is called mental disturbances. Now you are in unknown position. Better to relax yourself. Spend much time with your friends and family members. Share all your internal feelings who close to you. Better to spend some time for your internal happiness. Eat anything when you have feeling of smoking. Or drink anything. Do not be alone. Be sociable all the time. All the best.

I am 20 years old. I am an architecture student so I have a lot of pressure and stress everyday. I cant sleep properly in the night. My presentations are also very weak. When I go on stage I sweat a lot and I am very feared. I forget what I have to explain. Even in class I cannot participate in group discussions. What should I do. Please help me.

You re all of 20 years old and have so many what I consider stress-related disorders. Many students are doing architecture but you are probably the only one with so many complications. The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us pressure beyond our capacity. If you look at life with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. Attend personality development course, good conversations skills course and public speaking skills course.

What kind of pill would be best for a severe stress, anxiety level and also help with depression?
Sir, instead of using any Pill - go for a complete detox of ur body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. this wud rejuvenate ur body - improving ur work efficiency and bettering ur sleep. It will also strengthen ur nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of ur body - cleansing ur body. Also take Shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of ur body and u will feel light, fresh and full of energy.

My father isn't stop drinking, but his health is too bad and he is not listening to our words. Doctors telling there is no cure for his problem. What should I do now?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It sounds like he is an advanced stage of alcoholism and needs admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help him deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one?s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent.

Why Smoking Impacts Your Crucial Organs the Most?

Why Smoking Impacts Your Crucial Organs the Most?

How Smoking Impacts Your Organs

As you inhale cigarette smoke, about 7000 carcinogens stir the crevices of your body. In India, about 3,00,000 people die every year due to smoking-related issues.

Here's a list of 5 such organs, which are the most affected by cigarette smoke.

1. Your lungs - Your lungs are probably the first organs to bear the wrath of cigarette smoke. Majority of the lung cancer cases are due to smoking. Other diseases include bronchitis and emphysema. This smoke paralyzes the cilia lining the inner walls so much so that it overproduces mucous. When the mucous builds, respiration suffers. Asthma and cancer follow.

2. Your Skin - Your skin also gets affected up to a huge extent if you smoke. You could have deep circles under your eyes, wrinkles on your skin, and stretch marks, if you continue smoking over time. Also, there lies the risk of major health issues like skin warts, psoriasis, skin cancer, and wounds, which may take longer to heal.

3. Your Penis - Studies revealed that you can take longer for an erection and find it difficult to maintain it if you are a heavy smoker. Studies have also revealed that men who quit smoking had longer and firmer erections.

4. Your Liver - Smoking increases the chances of you suffering from liver cancer dramatically. According to studies, half of the liver cancer cases are due to smoking. Obesity can also take place if you're a heavy smoker.

5. Your Eyes - Smoking affects your eyes to the extent of making you blind. Partial vision loss, glaucoma, cataracts, dry eye syndrome, and diabetic retinopathy are some of the other diseases you are susceptible to if you smoke.

Despite the negative effects, quitting smoking can save you from all of these potential health hazards.

Here are some ways to help you quit smoking.

1. Nicotine Replacement Therapy - There are a few nicotine replacement tools in the form of nicotine nasal sprays and nicotine inhaler, which you can use to quit smoking.

2. Chew on something - You should try to chew on some candy, or a gum, or anything crunchy and satisfying once you start getting restless for a cigarette or any other form of nicotine. That usually helps.

3. Relaxation techniques - If you are resisting tobacco strongly, it can be very stressful indeed. Take a break from whatever you are doing and go out for a walk, practice muscle relaxation, yoga or deep breathing to keep the craving out of the way.

4. Get involved in some physical work - Getting involved in some work will surely go a long way in reducing your craving. You can also try out physical exercises like squats, running, or jogging. Otherwise, you can also indulge in some needlework, or anything, which involves concentration or physical work.

Pregnancy can occur only one day of cycle that is ovulation day which is 14 th day in a woman having regular 28 days cycle. Unprotected sex around that day only is important for conceiving. As only one day in month, nature should be given 12-24 trials before you need any active management by Gynecologist or infertility specialist.

Respected Sir, Even though I practice allopathy, I am aware that there are medicines in ayurveda also for depression. However I chose to reply to your query as I wanted to know the reason why you wanted to stop Ventab. If it is due to side effects, there are numerous allopathic alternatives available with fewer side effects and better efficacy than ayurvedic medicines. On the other hand, if it is due to an inadequate response, you are taking a pretty low dose of Ventab which can be hiked up for better results. However I would advise you to do the same after consultation with a psychiatrist. Also, both ayurvedic and allopathic medicines have numerous drug interactions, hence I would caution you against the use of both at the same time and once again ask you to reconsider shifting from allopathy to ayurveda.

148/98 at this age is a warning sign. Please rule out any blood sugar and blood lipid abnormalities. The best diet modification is avoiding salt. Totally. Not even the regular that you use in curry and roti and dal and etc. Totally avoid pickles and papad. And never never add salt in pre cooked items.

I have loss memory power. When I learn something I forget that thing. So how can I improve my memory power.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I used to smoke and from last two days I have stopped smoking it once for all so I want to know is it safe to stop smoking at once? If yes then what are quick effects of quitting smoking and what precautions should be taken after stopping smoking.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
It is safe to stop smoking at once. Your peripheral circulation may also begin to improve during this time. However, during this time you may also begin to experience some of the adverse effects of quitting smoking: withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms may include anxiety, increased appetite, irritability, sleeplessness, and intense cravings. When you quit smoking, the inflammation in the airways goes down. The little hair-like projections in the airways that we call cilia — which are paralyzed by smoke — begin to work again. So the lungs will get better in weeks to months.

My father-in-law takes alcohol every day 750 ml and kutka at least 8 packets. Help me.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and ghutka addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Get your anxiety treated properly instead of consuming alcohol, which worsens your anxiety disorder. Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. You need to consult a psychiatrist for anxiety and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

Being concerned about ones health issues is not anxiety. Swimming more than your usual, means you crossed your usual physical limits, that is natural to create strain on your physical health. I think rest and relaxation should bring you relief. About your capacities, physical I assume, being less as compared to people of your age ma need some evaluation.
