Hi !i am a stammer since when I was 5 years old @ 17 years I have started trying to over come it but it's not really working I had tried in many ways it really pushing me down in all aspects can any one help me?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

How can I avoid a cigrate. I started smoking since 8 month ago pls tell me I want to avoid smoking.

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Hello For stress management one can try physical exercises, meditation, discussing the problems with someone close, spending time with loved ones and by doing activities that you like to feel better.

I always think negative. Lots of thoughts go through my mind. I try to ignore but it continues. What to do?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
I always think negative. Lots of thoughts go through my mind. I try to ignore but it continues. What to do?
When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
To concentrate on something at your age you needs to------------ 1. Have a positive approach towards life--------------------- 2. Finds pleasure in what you are doing-------------------- 3. Have a strong mind --------------- and for this do not take help of medicines but bramari pranayam is the answer------------------------ bramari pranayam or bee breath -------------------------------1. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. ---------------------------------2. Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each pinky finger near a nostril.------------------------------------- 3. Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last.------------------------------4. Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled.------------------------------------5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils.------------------------------------- 6. Repeat twenty times. Starting from 5 times--------------------- homoeopathic medicine--------------------------- bren-up syrup (allen) drink 2 spoon twice daily.

I am a Cigarette smoker. I want to know how to clean my lungs. And how to dilute this effect on lungs.?

M.A in Clinical psychology, B.A - Psychology
Psychologist, Faridabad
Hi, lybrate-user,need more information about your smoking habit How many cigarette a day do you smoke? From how many years you are smoking need brief evaluation I suggest you consult your pulmonologist for cleaning your lungs. Damages your lungs from inside and without quit smoking you can't clean your lungs as you know it's effect on your lungs. If you think that you want to quit smoking so, I suggest you to take NICOTEX. NICOTEX is a chewing gum containing nicotine that helps smokers to quit smoking. It works on the proven principal of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). HOW TO QUIT SMOKING? YOU NEED TO HAVE strong will power, counselling by a psychologist & lots of motivation. I could help create a quit smoking plan and further guide you on how to take Nicotex for a period of 12 weeks. Stay committed, there are no side effects, and you can take it with your medication. Believe that you can quit. List down the reasons to quit e.g for your health, for your loved one. Health hazards of smoking: Brain: increases the risk of having a stroke. Eyes: Smoking can lead to vision loss Mouth: Darkens gums. Creates white sports on the tongue. Reduces the ability to taste and smell. Skin: Risk of premature wrinkling and greying. Leads to dryness Hair: Reduces the nutrients that reach the hair, leaving it lustreless. Accelerates hair loss and greying Hands: Discolours fingers and fingernails on the hand used to hold cigarettes Lungs: Retards lung development and result in mild air way obstruction during adolescence. Increases the risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adulthood. Smoking is the major cause of all type of lung cancer. Heart: Chronic smoking increases blood pressure, heart rate and arterial stiffness. Bones: Associated with loss of bone mineral density. YOU CAN QUIT SMOKING STAY HEALTHY.

Struggling with Stress?

Impact of Stress on our health

Mera naam Dr. B S Arora hai. Mai peshe se ek manochikitsak hoon. Kya aap apni Zindagi Tanav Mukt Jeena Chahte Hain? Kya aap Chahte Hain ki aap ke Jeevan Mein Koi Tanav Na Ho? Agar aap ka Uttar haan me Hai To Mujhe Gaur Se suniye. Aaj Mai aap se Tanav aur Tanav se Mukti ke upaay ke baare mein sankshipt vartalap karunga. Pehle tanav Kya Hota Hai? Tanav ke kya Karan Hote Hain? Tanav Mujhe Kaise prabhavit karta hai aur Tanav ki avastha kya hoti hai? Aur fir mai aap ko bataunga Tanav Mukti ke upay. Pehla toh tanav Kahin Bhi, Kisi Ko Bhi, Kabhi Bhi Prabhavit kar sakta hai. Tanav Zindagi Ki Ek Sacchai hai. Tanav ka Sahi Prabhadhan hi ek upaay hai.

Pehla tanav Hota kya hai? Ek avastha Hai jis mein kisi kaaran se mera Shaareerik, Mera maansik Mera Bhavnatmak santolan Bigad jaata hai. Yeh Karan antrik bhi ho sakte hain aur Bahri bhi ho sakte hain. Ye vastavik bhi ho sakte hai ya Kalpanik bhi ho sakte hain. Tanav ko do bhago Me Baanta Gaya Hai 1 positive or negative. Jaise aap apni Pariksha ke liye taiyari karte hai, agar tanav na ho to aap apni Pariksha ki taiyari nahi kar Payenge. Isliye Hum usko kehte hain positive tanav, Ek positive tension. Ab humein dekhna chahiye ki tanav ki avastha kya kya hai. Tanav ki teen avastha hoti hai. Jaise ki hum Apne Jeevan Kaal Ke Andar 3 Kaal Se Guzarte Hain - balyavastha, Yuva avastha aur vridhavastha.

Tanav ki bhi theek 3 Avasthaayein hoti hai. Pehli stage Hoti Hai alarming stage, 2nd Stage hoti hai stage of resistance and Third stage hoti hai stage of exhaustion. Jab Ek vaigyanik addhyyan kia gaya Pata Laga ki Hamare Tanav Ke Karan alag alag ho sakte hain lekin Hum usko Jis Tarah se pratikriya karte hai uska 1 definite pattern hai Jisko Hum Log Kehte Hai generalized adaptation system. Ye ek jatil prakriya hai. Mainw uska Ek thoda sa sarili Karan aap logo ke liye Kiya Hai. Ab Hum Chalte Hain Tanav ke kya kya Karan ho sakte hain. Pehla Karan Ghar Mein Kisi ki mrityu ho jana. Kisika ghar mein janam lena. Kisi Ko Kisi ke ghar mein Achanak aapka financial status ya Naukri ka chhoot Jaana. Ya phir ek samay nirdharit k andar aapka Karya ko karna.

Tanav ke aur bhi Karan ho sakte hain jaise aapka traffic me fas Jana, Pariksha ka nazdeek Aa Jana aur ek pariwarik Kalah jisske anar Divorce Bhi Ek pramukh Tanav ka Karan Hota Hai. Ab Hum Chalte Hain Tanav ke baare mein Humne Charcha kar li. Tanav ke Karan, tanav ki avasthayein. Ab baat karenge tanav Hame Kaise prabhavit karta hai. Hum Shareerik taur pe baat kare to Tanav Hame Rakta Chap yani hypertension, BP Ka mareez Bana sakta hai. Humko Heart Attack De sakta hai. Agar ye tanav accumulated hokar daily Jo Hamare tanav hai Aage chal kar Hame hriday Rog se bhi Prabhavit kar sakta hain. Tanav Hume anxiety, depression, psychosis Ka mareez Bhi Bana sakta hai. Agar tanav bahut jyada ho To kitne log Tanav se prabhavit hokar aatmhatya Tak kar lete hai. Abhi jo vaigyanik addhyyan Huye hai usse ye Pata Chala Hai ki Bada Tanav ek ho toh itna prabhavit nahi karta Magar Chote Chote Kah tanav Hame Jyada prabhavit karte hai. Aur Ek Aur tathya nikla hai. Cancer of tanav. Jo log bahut sara tanav lete hain unke andar Yeh Pata Chala Hai cancer hone ke Pravarti bad rahi hai. Ab mai aap ko Tanav Nivaran or tanav ka prabhandhan Hum Kaise Kare.

Agar Aap iske baare mein mujhse koi sujhaav ya mujhse koi suggestion chahte ho toh aap lybrate ke through Mujhse Sampark kar sakte hain.

How can I control peace of mind .while studying without diverting my mind on other topics.

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 user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.
