I presently smoke about over a pack of cigarettes per day. Work odd hours 7 pm to 4 PM. I know its affecting my health. Need to know if there are medicines that can help quit smoking. If yes are there any known side effects.

Dear, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mustard + 3 drops of gentian + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of scleranthus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose. On empty stomach.

What can help me to lead ...
Dear fiend, too much thinking means too many desires, which are always in future. We all are obsessed with future, not too much concerned with present, but the life always throbs in the present. Enjoy your present, and avoid getting into the trap of what one should be all the time. Also the single pointed focus on the result of all the activities brings stress. Instead try being focused on the activity itself. You are young do not complicate your life. Cheers.

If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session.

Humans are not born with perfect bodies. Most gain or lose more weight than they intended. Some people feel full even after only eating half of the food on their plates. You can't gain weight if you don't have more healthy food inside of you. Eating more healthy food is essential to gaining weight. You cannot achieve your ideal weight by eating little. Here are some tips on how you can eat more food without feeling full: eat slowly some people chew and swallow their way into their plate in just minutes. You need to take it slow since eating faster will only make you feel fuller right away. Eating fast also causes you to overeat. Eat gluten-free food for weight watchers gluten is a kind of protein usually found in some grains, cereals and wheat. In food production, gluten is added to keep the elasticity of food, making bread more chewable. The presence of gluten also keeps other types of food from having a doughy texture. If you choose to be on a gluten-free diet, you will be actually keeping unhealthy food away from your body. Being on a gluten-free diet means steering clear of sugary sweet desserts and fried food. Processed food also contains gluten including artificial flavoring. Eliminating processed food from your diet will let you focus more on protein-rich food to help you gain weight. A gluten-free diet means eating more fruits and vegetables. These are non-starchy foods so eating them will take you a longer time to get full. Gluten-free grains are usually low in fiber. You can also eat more without feeling so full afterwards. Eating eating frequent small meals a day keeps you from overeating. Photo credit: venus buzz have frequent meals eating small meals a day instead of the regular 3 meals can help you eat more to gain weight. In order to put more meat into a skinny frame, you need to eat as much food as you can the healthy way. You can't do this if you feel full right away. To help you eat more without getting full, start eating small meals in a day. If you spread out your calorie-intake in certain times of a day, you can get more inside your stomach without feeling sick. Eat calorie-rich foods in your small meals. Don't eat junk food in between these meals since you increase your chances of being full without getting any calories. Learn the right serving size if there are 3 or more kinds of food on your table, you can eat all of them without feeling full. The secret is to portion each of the food so you can eat more. A serving of meat doesn't mean a whole slab of steak. You can cut and slice the meat into smaller portions. If there are vegetables, do not go overboard by getting a large bowl. You can enjoy eating more food if you take them in small portions throughout the day rather than in one sitting. Do cardio exercises working out before a meal will always make you hungry for food after. You can build a light sweat before a planned meal by doing cardio exercises. Not only is this good for keeping your heart healthy, exercising also lets you enjoy more food during a meal. An intense workout will stimulate your appetite for food since the body loses energy during exercise. If you are trying to gain weight, this is the time to eat calorie-dense foods. You'll be packing away the calories in no time. Avoid eating mashed potatoes mashed potatoes are fatty foods. The more fat is in the food, the longer time it will take to break it down and prepare it for digestion. If the breakdown of food inside your stomach is slow, the faster you will run out of space for more food. If you still want to eat more servings of food, it's better to avoid the fattiest food on your plate. Save drinks for last some people believe in drinking a glass of water in between courses to clamp down on food in your stomach. You should know this is only a myth. Drinking water or any kind of beverage during a meal will only make you feel fuller. You can actually feel full just by drinking liquids and eating a little amount of food. If you want to eat and enjoy more of your food, you can save the drinks until you have eaten your last bite. I hope this helps.

Dear, please understand, depressive disorder is a neuro chemical disorder. Therefore even allopathic medicines don't properly work. The best combination treatment is allopathic medicines and psychotherapy. Please follow the prescribed methods strictly. I assure you, you will not get any further relief from any alternative medicine systems. Please don't waste your time and money. Take care.

Dear, your mother could be disappointed. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were your mother disappointed in the near past? I think she is disappointed due to her health conditions. She needs your love and affection. Treat her as if she is your child and constantly motivate her. She could be sad because she fear to die and now tries to understand life and death. If you motivate her constantly, she may come back to life as a wise person. Take care. Convey my love to your mother.

IM injections of B12 work faster than oral tablets due to better absorption. Consult your doctor for the same, and only after approval from your doctor, start the treatment. Risk of allergy or any untoward incident is a possibility, hence do not take it on your own. With injections (usually given weekly or biweekly depending on the situation) changes are seen in about a month. Also change your diet to include foods rich in B12 and folate, like leafy green vegetables.

My son, age 4 yrs, can not speak but to gain attraction he usually cried out very loud. We consult ENT and did several tests like beta, tympanometry and audiometry. One doctor recommend cochlear implant, Another told to go for hearing aid. After various test the people who sell hearing aid are now demanding to deposit 60000 cash as security deposit for the hearing aid. Is this necessary? Can anybody help what should we do?

Ph.D

You have to pay for hearing aids. Free hearing aids are available only in some Government projects like ADIP in selected institutes. But quality of devices not assured. If hearing aids doesn't help, you may try cochlear implants. However, in spite of these amplification devices, auditory training and speech therapy decides the successful treatment.

Good Morning ~ Men do have a small amount of estrogen-like substance in their body that is autogenous and also extraneous i.e. From foods that contain estrogen like activity. I believe that you might be having problems with feeling like a female because of inadequacy in your sexual feelings and I believe that you are also in control of your mind in a very unusual way. You may need psychiatric help if you have mood swings as it may be a problem with men as well as women.

Peculiar time Management strategies of successful People

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Peculiar time Management strategies of successful People
It is often said that successful people right from sportsperson to movie stars to business tycoons & world leaders make things happen. They just don't let the things passively drift away from them! Success is never accidental for them. For them, success at any task or project is the direct result of preparing, planning, and aligning their time with their most important goals.
1.They Dont waste time on petty decisions: Only a few decisions truly matter. Successful people know that every decision need not be perfect. This frees them to make quick decisions most of the time. They automate and simplify day to day decisions.They don’t think about whether they will go to the gym. They don’t deliberate about what they will eat for breakfast. They workout at the same time every day. They eat the same breakfast every day. They use their willpower and flex their decision making muscles on the highest impact decisions they face each day.They insist on routine: A precise formula that produces an effective daily routine doesn’t exist. But,highly successful people experiment with different activities until they find the precise routine that fits their lifestyle and sets them up for a successful day. Successful people often compile a combination of the following activities throughout the day: meditate, read, journal, exercise, prioritize their tasks & activities, and eat multiple small meals to fuel their day.
2.They Plan Ahead: One of the major differences between highly successful people and average performers is detailed and strategic planning. Successful people spend more time thinking about their big picture goals and ideas. Average performers make those decisions in a reactive mode while they’re in the thick of the forest of their lives. Successful people plan thoroughly and reap the rewards down the road.Their detailed planning provides clarity on what they should be working on at any given time. Because, what doesn’t get scheduled, doesn’t get done; successful people regularly schedule time to review their priorities, goals, and road maps to achieve them. They schedule time to monitor their progress on key objectives and iterate their plans based on results and lessons learned. They schedule their projects on a daily and weekly basis. They set aside time to plan and execute those plans.They produce at high levels because they separate the planning and creation processes. They don’t plan on their whims & fancies but they make it a habit to plan meticulously.
3.They Prioritize & work on most important projects first: Willpower is a limited resource. As we make decisions, run errands, and work on various projects throughout the day, our willpower is depleted. Successful people leverage the full tank of willpower in the morning by working on their most important project first. In his book,''First Things First" author Stephen Covey lays out a quadrant with the following categories: urgent and important, not urgent and important, urgent and not important, and not urgent and not important. The quadrant where you spend the majority of your time determines your life’s destiny.Average performers live in the urgent quadrants. They are constantly putting out fires. On the other hand, highly successful people focus on activities that are important and not urgent. These activities don’t yield instant results. However, they produce massive long-term results.
