Hello Wasim, this is quite common problem nowadays. Because focus of self satisfaction has shifted to gadgets rather than self improvement. Thats why more & more people are shifting / spending much time to mobiles. Please try to find out your aim for self satisfaction keeping future in mind & try to read newspaper as well as develop habit of reading books. That will help eventually in long run. Thanks.

How To Get Rid Of Ache And Pain With Help Of Ayurveda?

How To Get Rid Of Ache And Pain With Help Of Ayurveda?

It’s not just painful but also very irritating to have that odd neck, back, knee or any other muscular pain. Just sitting and waiting for the pain to go is something that we just cannot do. We want instant relief! Some of us wonder how we even got this pain. Asking around we find answers such as an incorrect posture of the body, too much of physical stress on a particular muscle or staying still in one position for a long time. Right, long working hours sitting in front of a computer.

  • Ayurveda dives a bit deeper to find out the cause of muscular pain. According to Ayurveda, the muscle pain is caused by collection of harmful toxins in a particular area of the body which blocks the smooth transportation of essential nutrients, which leads to the aggravation of the “Vata” element in the body and causing muscular pain. There is no exception to any age group from this pain.
  • Once again, body, diet and health, are all inter- linked. Ayurveda says a prominent way to avoid muscular pain is our diet. Cheese, cakes, meat, processed food, caffeine are strictly to be avoided by Ayurveda. This is because these kinds of foods dry up the muscles making them stiff and causing pain.
  • If a person experiences muscular pain, Ayurveda has natural and chemical free methods to manage the pain. The main method is the practice of Abhyanga. It includes the application of oil all over the body, and massaging the areas where pain is experienced gently. This improves blood circulation with the nutrients needed all over the body. The heating properties of the oil stimulate the same.
  • At Dr. Vaidya’s, we have innovative products which help in prevention and management of muscular pain. One of them is the evergreen super popular, Rumox Balm. Rumox balm is a special Ayurvedic formulation that has an anti-inflammatory properties and an analgesic effect. Apart from treating swelling and muscular pain, it also provides relief from all types of arthritic pain.
  • Another product tried by thousands of our loyal customers is Sandhivati, which is a strong formulation for treatment of arthritis. Composed of Maharasnadi Quath Ghan powder and Mahayograj Guggul powder, this product is used for effective treatment of muscular, joint and arthritic pain.
  • We also have special herbal massage oil called Nirgundi Oil, a formulation of Til Oil, Castor Oil, Sarsav Oil and Nirgundi Extract. It is to be gently applied over the pain affected area.
  • We have a range over thirty products that include your daily use products such as Herbodanty, medicine for cold, cough, shampoo etc. Our in-house doctor, Dr. (Mrs.) Surya Bhagwati (BAMS, DHA, DHHCM, and DHBTC) can help you build your Ayurveda knowledge and help diagnose any medical issues you may be suffering from. Following our founder, Dr.Natoobhai Vaidya. Legacy we continue to offer free consultation to all our patients. We strive to be one of the best Ayurvedic Clinics in Mumbai while following his beliefs of providing high quality medicine, superior customer care and to be dedicated to our patients welfare.

Hello dear the dreams ars representative of our subconscious. Dreams of dying might reflect some sort of fear in your mind regarding your life. Try to introspect and work on that negative thinking by indulging in positive thinking. Also try meditation to calm your mind before sleeping.

You are an adult and if in the past you felt you lost your child due to physical and mental stress caused at your in-laws house we suggest you should get the second child delivery done at your own mom's place and then with passage of time everything will be fine and your husband will also be bonded to you more strongly. In case you still need any further information or assistance or any advice you may get back to us on a private consultation.

What Suicidal Depression Feels Like!

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
What Suicidal Depression Feels Like!

Depression is an illness which has a direct impact on the brain. People feel that it’s just feeling down but it is more than that. It is a serious illness caused by changes in brain chemistry. There are other factors also that contribute to the onset of depression, including

  1. Genetics,

  2. Changes in hormone levels,

  3. Stress,

  4. Difficult life circumstances.

Any of the above mentioned factors or combination can precipitate changes in brain chemistry and may lead to depression. Depression is a serious and a very common condition these days which may lead to suicide in extreme cases.

Signs of Depression:

  1. Loss of pleasure in virtually all activities,

  2. Feeling of fatigue or lack of energy,

  3. Difficulty with concentration or memory,

  4. An increase or decrease in appetite, with a corresponding change in weight.

  5. Thoughts of suicide Depression & Suicide.

A major cause of suicide is mental illness, very commonly depression. People feeling suicidal are overwhelmed by painful emotions and see death as the only way out, losing sight of the fact that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary state. Most people who succeed with living feel glad that they resist and are alive today. Suicidal thoughts may be fleeting or more frequent, passive or active. People who are in depress state often start preparing for death, such as giving away possessions or acquiring a gun and these are cause of great concern and should be taken very seriously.

How to judge if suicide is a possibility?

There may be some warning signs, though hard to predict but can be an area of concern:

  1. Being depressed or signs of some mental disorders.

  2. Talking about the loss of interest in living or not to be around.

  3. Increased social isolation.

  4. Mood swings very often.

  5. Buying suicide materials.

  6. Preoccupation with death.

While anyone can become suicidal, there are certain risk factors that make suicide more likely:

  1. Previous suicide attempts.

  2. Recent losses like loss of a relationship or job.

  3. Cultural and religious beliefs supporting suicide.

  4. Access to means of suicide.

How to help a depressed person?

  • Let the person know if you've noticed a change in their behaviour.

  • Spend time talking with the person about their experiences and let them know that you're there to listen without being judgmental.

  • Suggest the person see a doctor or health professional and/or help them to make an appointment.

  • Offer to go with the person to the doctor or health professional.

  • Help the person to find information about depression and anxiety from a website or library.

  • Encourage the person to try to get enough sleep, exercise and eat healthy food.

  • Discourage the person from using alcohol or other drugs to feel better.

  • Encourage friends and family members to invite the person out and keep in touch, but don't pressure the person to participate in activities.

  • Encourage the person to face their fears with support from their doctor/psychologist.

Remember that your loved one's depression isn't anyone's fault. You can't fix the person's depression — but your support and understanding can help.

Hi, I am 21 Female. I am in a relationship. It's been 5 years now but our relationship doesn't look good. There is no understanding between us. He can't understand me he loves me but he takes everything so easy. He can live for months without talking to me but I can't even be a day without communicating him. I don't know how to change him. I just want to live happily without him but I'm failing every time he convinces me so quickly and easily but I'm not getting that how to change him and convince him I just want to live happily without him but I don't know how. Please suggest me either to change him or to leave him please I am almost getting mad. I'm always thinking about him and I have no thought. I'm unable to eat and sleep. Please suggest me.

One of the major issues appears to be your pre-occupation with the partner and relationship. It appears to be a good time to rekindle with your original self, the way you were before the relationship. Allow yourself to nurture your original hobbies and activities, your previously pleasurable activities eg. Meeting up with other people (friends/cousins. But with a focus on yourself and not to change him. Let time take it's course from there on. Try and meet a counsellor for individual therapy. Best of luck.

I have smoking problem how should I stop this problem and also my penis is small how to big it.Please suggest me something.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, P.G.Dip.in Guidance &Counselling, B.A., Psychology, Dip.in Pharmacy, 6-month Internship
Psychologist, Madurai
Smoking is not only your problem, but also a global problem. I suggest you some practices to get rid of the habit. But it is only Your Own will power/fortitude/guts, say whatever it is, it will only lead you to success. 1)Announce a particular date (within a week) on which you are going to stop smoking, to all your friends, neighbors, family members etc., 2) Enjoy smoking as much as possible till that date, but with 100% consciousness (just like meditation you should concentrate only at the smoking activity itself). 3)Make some arrangements so that you and your family members, particularly your parents, should be inside your home for a few days(more is better). 4) Be psychologically prepared to face some mood changes like feeling of losing something, thoughts about life without smoking is not possible, even headache, constipation, restlessness etc., all these are withdrawal symptoms and only temporary. Will loose strength day after day. 5)On the particular day close yourself inside home and start meditating (recite the mantra "I WILL NEVER SMOKE EVEN AT THE COST OF MY DEATH' to yourself very strongly and repeatedly). For the next few days do nothing else except this meditation. You will have the positive energy to fight against the habit. And again, it's your strong will power that gives you what you want. Your second question, size of the penis doesn't matter, it matters only the Erection of the penis. Bcs even a two-inche erect penis is sufficient to satisfy a woman sexually. So nothing to worry about it.

It sounds good that you are well aware of your own personality and have taken initiative to change for the better. But it is a gradual process that takes time and efforts with patience. You can find a good counselor in Delhi who can provide proper training in overcoming your shyness and social anxiety, probably by means of a technic called CBT. If you're unable to afford to it, contact me through Lybrate's video counseling mode.

Whenever one starts anything new, to some extent apprehension & anxiety comes normally. As you are new to riding bike, you are experiencing the anxiety & fear. Do not stop riding because of it. Stay focused & positive, & continue riding regularly. With regular practice you will gradually become expert & habituated to riding. Your confidence will grow, & anxiety & fear will disappear. Rather than concentrating on what people will think about you, focus on your priorities & your goals. Systematize your thoughts. Before doing any work plan properly regarding how you will do the work to your best capabilities & proceed accordingly. When you will do your works to your best abilities, your confidence will grow, you will feel good about your performance, & you will become more focused on doing your tasks better & better. Then you will become more busy with & concentrated on your own life rather than on your surroundings.

Actually, I want to become scientist but I am loosing my concentration, can you please tell me the solution?

MD Hom., Certificate in Food and Nutrition, BHMS, Diploma In Yoga, PGDM
Homeopath, Indore
The following are some simple strategies that anyone can use to improve the amount of information that they take in and remember to increase concentration are - 1. Pay attention. You cannot take in information unless you are paying attention, and you cannot memorize information unless you are taking it in. Get enough food and sleep, and avoid distractions such as a background radio or television. 2. Involve as many senses as possible. For example, if you are sitting in a lecture, you will remember more of what is being said if you listen and scribble down a few notes. Or if you are reading a letter or an article, you will remember more of what is written if you read it aloud to yourself. 3. Relate new information to what you already know. New information is much easier to remember if it can be contextualized. 4. Structure information. For example, if you need to remember what ingredients you need to cook a meal, think of them under the subheadings of starter, main course, and desert, and visualize how many ingredients there are under each sub-heading. Or if you need to remember a telephone number, think of it in terms of the five first digits, the middle three digits, and the last three digits. 5. Use mnemonics. That is, tie information to visual images, sentences, acronyms, or rhymes. For example, you might remember, as medical students do, the symptoms of varicose veins with the acronym ‘AEIOU’: aching, eczema, itching, oedema, and ulceration. 6. Understand information. Try to understand more complex material before you try to remember it. If possible, summarize the material in your own words and write or type out your summary. 7. Rehearse information. Review the information later on the same day or sleep over it and review it the following day. Thereafter, review it at regular, spaced intervals until you feel comfortable that you know it well enough. 8. Exercise your mind. Mental challenge can help to create new wire connections in the brain, which makes it more effective and more resistant to memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. So develop a new hobby, read a novel, learn a foreign language, or practice yourself at crosswords or sudoku. 9. Develop a healthy lifestyle. Eat a healthy, balanced diet, take regular exercise, and avoid smoking. A healthy lifestyle increases the amount of blood and oxygen that is delivered to the brain, and reduces the risk of medical conditions that can lead to memory loss such as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and diabetes. Exercise also increases your ‘feel-good’ endorphins, which improves your mood and prevents depression. Depression results in impaired attention and concentration, and is also a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. 10. Get sufficient sleep. Sleep is necessary for memory consolidation, and feeling alert and refreshed improves your attention and concentration. 11. Visit to a doctor -Certain prescribed and over-the-counter drugs can impair your attention and concentration, and hence your memory. If you suspect that this is the case for you, see your doctor. You should also see your doctor if you begin having memory problems that affect your ability to get by on a day-to-day basis. For more queries contact us.

3 Mental Disorders That Genes Can Pass!

Ph.D - Ph.D in Psychology, Ph. D - Education
Psychologist, Kakinada
3 Mental Disorders That Genes Can Pass!

The risk of a mental illness increases, if one or more of your family members have a mental disorder, but this increased risk doesn't guarantee that you will develop a mental illness. Not only have some mental illnesses been found to be hereditary in nature, but certain studies have found that some major mental illnesses can be traced to the same genetic variations.

Some hereditary psychiatric disorders are:

  1. Obsessive compulsive disorder: Obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD is a disorder of the brain and behavior. A person suffering from OCD has uncontrollable, recurring thoughts and behaviors they cannot stop repeating. Ocd also causes severe anxiety in such people. In 2000, a study conducted by researchers in Washington d. C. And Baltimore concluded that having one or more ocd family member (s) may increase the chances of you developing it too. In 2010, a study tracked down possible chromosomes that may be responsible for OCD.
  2. Schizophrenia: Schizophrenia is a chronic mental illness that affects and dictates how a person feels, thinks and behaves. Those suffering from schizophrenia may lose touch with reality and experience delusions, hallucinations, thought disorders and movement disorders. It has been seen that people who have an identical twin with schizophrenia are 50% more likely to develop the disorder and those who have one parent suffering from schizophrenia are 18% more likely to inherit the illness.
  3. Depression: Major depression or clinical depression is a common though severe mood disorder. It is characterized by an episode of sadness or apathy along with other symptoms that last at least for two consecutive weeks. Those suffering from depression may feel helpless and worthless, lose all interest in daily activities or activities they used to enjoy and feel unable to take part in normal day-to-day activities. Other symptoms of depression also include sleep pattern and appetite changes, chronic fatigue, concentration or focus problems and physical discomfort. Some patients with depression may become suicidal.

In 2011, a study pinned down a specific chromosome that may trigger depression development. Research on the hereditary properties of depression within families shows that some people are more prone to develop the disorder than others. If you have a parent or sibling that suffers from depression, you might be 1.5 to 3 times more likely to develop depression than those who do not have a close family member suffering from this condition. You are also more prone to developing bipolar disorder in such a scenario.
