Hello , my name is Dr. Gayatri Chaudhary. I work at Suasth One Step clinic as a consultant psychiatrist.

Today we are going to talk about common illness in children. The first illness that we are going to talk about is ADHD. Now what is the full form of ADHD? ADHD means Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. What are the symptoms of ADHD? So the children have hyperactivity as the name suggests. Hyperactivity means that the child has difficulty sitting at one place. Now this difficulty sitting in one place could be either in school or at home. Most of the times it could be at more than one place.

So the child is hyperactive, cannot sit at one place, is always on the go, cannot wait for his turn at class, is always disturbing other children in class and when the child is at home, again the child cannot stay at home, he cannot concentrate on activities and is driven by a motor of sorts.

There is another component to the illness that is inattention. Now in inattention the children are unable to concentrate or lack attention. As the name suggests, ADHD, this is the inattention part. Now in inattention, children usually lack their concentration levels. They are not able to concentrate in any activity. Primarily, patients complain about their lack of attention in studies, but their inattention very well be in other aspects like they are doing some project work from school, or any other task, or for that matter sports like playing cricket or playing football or any cube play.

The other component of ADHD is high impulsivity. So the child cannot wait for his turn in the class. He blurts out answers when its not needed. He is always on the go and the child usually wants to talk when not asked and he wants to leave his seat when he is not asked to. So there will be frequent complaints from the school teacher that the child is not sitting at one place, he’s disturbing others in school and he is not able to concentrate on his studies. One more common complaint that the school might complaint about is that the child is difficulty in remembering his syllabus or remembering what is taught in class. He forgets his belongings in school. He forgets his pencils, erasers and notebooks in school and because of these complaints.

We should be wary if our child has ADHD. Now the good part about this is that it can be treated. It can be treated with medication and it can be treated with therapy. Many a times we are sceptical about whether to start the child on medication, but, because the child is inattentive, because he is hyperactive, the child is not able to use his or her capabilities to her best, that’s why it causes problems in academics, it causes problems with peer relations with other children in the school and it causes problem in the households also. So it is very important to get the ADHD treated. Now medications that are available are, you can easily consult a psychiatrist and get the child evaluated and start on medication. There are therapies available.

Like you can take the child for occupational therapy or remedial education or remedial therapy. All these things are going to help the child to be good in academics as well as their peer relationships and it would help the child in their further studies. To know more about ADHD you can book an appointment with lybrate.com .

Hello everyone! I am Sheetal Bidkar and I am a clinical psychologist and addiction therapist at Suasth One Step Clinic, Kemps Corner.

So, lets start talking about sleep deprivation today. We know that sleep is a very important part of our lives and sleep deprivation can cause serious as well as psychological problems for each of us.

So, let’s understand what are the methods which can improve our quality of sleep and make us healthy. The very first thing is to avoid tea, coffee, any type of stimulant or alcohol after 6 pm. These stimulants will keep you more active, thus, giving you a poor quality sleep at night. Secondly, go on the bed only for sleeping. Any other activities like reading, watching TV, doing something on your laptop will hamper your association of sleep with the bed. The third thing, make changes to your room. If there is not enough darkness or a good temperature, it obviously will affect the chemical which is necessary for sleeping. In order to generate the sleep chemical, we need darkness and a right temperature in the room. Limit your screen time. We often see our mobile screens till we get a deep sleep. So, let’s have a habit that when you are about to sleep, keep your mobile phone aside at least half-an-hour before and see how your sleep improves. Do some exercise. If you do some physical exercises, then automatically the sleep schedule regains normalcy.

Another part is no self-medication. Most of us are aware that if we go to a medical store with any problem, they would suggest something, or even if we search on Google, it will also suggest us some medication to improve our sleep. But I strongly recommend not to have any self-medication for sleep because eventually they have more serious side-effects and even addiction as well. So make sure we are not doing any self-medication in order to improve the sleep. Minimum 7 to 7-and-a-half hour sleep is important to us. Don’t compromise on it like 3 hours at a time and then another 2-hour sleep later. In a single stretch, at least 7 or 7-and-a-half hours of sleep is important for adults. Next part, that when we are talking about sleep, we know that if I am not sleeping in the day time I feel very sleepy, and I am not able to concentrate on anything.

So if you start compromising the time in that the problem becomes worse. So always remember that if you have sleeping problem, control your daytime naps. The more you are sleeping in the day time, the more you are affecting your night sleep. So these are a few tips that may improve your sleep. These methods are called sleep hygiene techniques. I hope everyone of us will try and implement them for better results.

For more information, you can contact me on Lybrate. Thank you!

Hello Everyone,<br/><br/>My name is Sheetal Bidkar and I am a clinical psychologist and addiction...

Hello Everyone,

My name is Sheetal Bidkar and I am a clinical psychologist and addiction therapist at swasthya one step clinic Mumbai.

Let's talk about some digital Detox today, because use of internet, use of social media and Gadgets it's a very common thing. In a digital world, we are more isolated and rather depressed. So let's talk about how to handle this new digital depression. I will give you five simple tips to understand that digital detoxification. First, connect in real times. Forwarding a forwarded message to your friend doesn't convey the real message that you care for him and you are really interested in his world. But calling him for just a cup of tea and talking about his real-life situation will definitely convey that message. So remember to connect in real time. second and most important. Be a digital role model for your kids and even for your colleagues.

So when you want that people should not scroll their screens in front of you all the time you should not do that. So limit your period and be a really good role model to everyone around you. Third and most important create a digital free zone for yourself while exercising while travelling while being with self While having dinner or male with your family say no to any gadgets. Be it TV, be it your mobile laptop or any other screen. Another part, have a purpose for every platform say.

For example, I am on, Facebook I am on LinkedIn, ask yourself, why am I using this if you are on LinkedIn. the primary purpose is to search for a job. stick to that purpose. if you are on facebook, you are just trying to connect with other people like you. stick to that purpose .so don't wrong and waste your time on this app now and then. Fifth and more important thing. Limit your use, have a set timing for yourself. Ask for help if you are living with your family, if you find me using 45 minutes for more my mobile on my laptop please come to knock the door and tell me that 45 minutes are over ask for help for the betterment. Apply these 5 simple tips and let's see how this digital detoxification help us to be more happy. You can contact for book an appointment with me on lybrate.com. thank you.

Hello,<br/><br/>I am Sheetal Bidkar, I am a clinical psychologist and addiction therapist working...

Hello,

I am Sheetal Bidkar, I am a clinical psychologist and addiction therapist working with Suasth One Step Clinic. Suasth One Step Clinic is the deaddiction and Wellness clinic we treat people with substance abuse disorder and we treat people who has problem with mental health issues.

In a layman language, if I wanted to tell you that we deal with people who consume alcohol, drugs, tobacco, cigarettes or either they are suffering with habits like gambling, internet addiction, pornography, sex addiction and so on. Mental wellness issues, we talk with people, we cure people with those who are suffering with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, schizophrenia, psychosis fears and so on. Our service is balance both the things one is giving medicine, we have a team of psychiatrist and a psychologist who deal with people need help. Psychiatrists give you medication, so medicines help you to treat your biological dysfunctions and the chemical problems due to your disorder. Psychotherapy helps you to understand and overcome behavioural changes, psychotherapy helps you to deal with the life skills which helps you to deal with your disease in a better way. Now let's understand how psychotherapy works because medicine is something which we understand works very prominently and all of us aware that some people feel comfortable taking medicines, some people feel that medicine specially in psychiatry are not advisable. However, balance of medicine and balance of psychotherapy works better, if we want long term recovery we need medication along with therapy, in some cases if the disease is at early stage only psychotherapy also can help. Let's talk more about psychotherapy today, being a clinical psychologist and addiction therapist big part of my job is to talk to people about why they are suffering and how to deal with their present symptoms and lead towards a recovery and enjoy full life. Psychotherapy allows people to develop the inside about whether they have problem or not. Clinical assessments and psychological tests help people to understand the severity of their symptoms. If they are in a denial that I don't think that I have a problem but the family people can understand there is something really wrong with the individual. Then we conduct motivational interviewing and some sessions for inside building, we believe that if you know your problem you will deal with your problem effectively. The second part, once you know your problem, once you know your symptoms, once you have a inside, then the question is developing the life skills if you have a inside, if you already understanding that yes I am anxious many of times or I am consuming alcohol these days in a extra amount and then the million dollar question to you is why you are suffering, despite of you are having inside, what are the personality traits or what are the environmental triggers keeping you in the dysfunctional behaviour. Psychotherapy allows you to understand your thinking pattern, your behaviour pattern, your perceptions about the situation. It also allows you to learn many techniques like relaxation technique, thought stopping technique, in addiction particularly, craving management techniques these are the behavioural skills sets allow you to take charge of your life and symptoms and leave towards recovery. The third and most important part is about when I complete my treatment, I should not go back to the similar kind of symptoms again, so we call it as relapse prevention plan and continuous scare. So I am dealing with my condition now and I will see to that I will build the network around it, so that the recovery becomes easy. We involve family people, we call them for family sessions even after the individual therapy people need support for continuous recovery. If your family people are also aware about what precautions to be taken, what are the do's and don'ts for you for a long time recovery then a recovery becomes, the recovery journey become very enjoyable. The last part of the therapy is a continuous SCARE as I told you most of the diseases and symptoms are relapse prone, in the sense you may not experience after the treatment you may not experience these symptoms for a short period of time says 6 months, 1 year or one and a half year, some people complain that after a period they again start getting the similar kind of symptoms. In that case we can prevent you from going back to the same chronic conditions by a allowing you to come for follow ups, by allowing you to do the continuous SCARE program. The continuous SCARE program can be done 1 to 1 in the clinic or online.

I understand your concern about your child's recovery. Right kind of interventions only will bring Long term recovery. Any trial and error will make the patient suffer more and unknowingly the damages will be done which may or may not be reversible. The main points for you 1. Please let the psychiatrist decide which medicine he has to take. Do not stop or change any medicine without the detailed assessment with psychiatrists and/ or mental health professionals. 2. No psychologist is authorised or trained to give medicines. The clinical Psychologist can to the assessment and psychotherapy, counselling. 3. Any mental health issue can be effectively treated. The medicines are safe. Do not restrict the treatment with only homeopathy or etc. Your Child's recovery is more important than the type of treatment. 4. If you have concerns about medicines and it's effectiveness or side effects. Please do talk to doctors about it. Suffering is not an option. 5. Medicine along with therapy help client for long term recovery. 6. Symptoms like illusions etc indicates that there is a need for detailed assessment by psychiatrist. 7.

No amount of alcohol is safe to use. Alcohol intake aggravates the risk of depression because Alcohol is a depressant. Depressants are a class of drugs that inhibit the function of the central nervous system (CNS). Alcohol impairs and slows both physical and psychological activity. Medicine and Psychotherapy togather gives a better results. Psychotherapy sessions with psychologist will help you understand craving management, dealing with triggers and also how to prevent the relapse. Therapy will also equip you to learn how to deal with depression. Enjoy the long term recovery. A fresh start is always possible.

Details of my problem: I am getting sexual thoughts about god (images of I am doing the act) and feeling impulses (loosing control and may acting out) and feeling sexual arousal when ever I am getting these sexual thoughts about god. I informed about my issue to my brother and my friends and then I goggled about this issue in some article about OCD. And finally I took online counselling. I got information from physiatrist about sexual thoughts about god and impulses and sexual arousal as these are common things for a common human being But because of these are taboo thoughts no one in our society talk about this issue you feeling anxiety and the answers makes me feel relax. My problem for now: 1. I am getting some questions from inside of mind that: Written information about my issues will give more comfortable because that information read or known by most people but I not got many cases like me in Internet. Some cases I got in that cases they not mentioned about feeling of sexual arousal. That's why I feeling anxiety that I am feeling sexual arousal when ever I got the sexual thoughts about god. And getting much questions. I know this is a unwelcome and involuntarily coming Pls suggest me what to do. 2. I read many articles about ocd in online sites In many of that articles, they mentioned as the body physical sensation, the sufferer may get questions as this represents as may sexually attracted to that person. But my case I getting sexual thoughts about god and not the person's. So that's why I am getting much confused may everyone won't get any sexual arousal at the time sexual thought about god. And my anxiety level not getting lower. Pls clarify my question.

Medicine along with psychotherapy gives better results. once you develop healthy behaviour strategies and if there is no relapse the doctors may slowly cut down on medicine. It may take a while but there is hope. Psychotherapy helps to learn the triggers, nature of our disease and other coping mechanisms. Psychotherapy also effective in designing your relapse prevention plan. Bring the desirable change, maintain it and prevent the relapse is the key for long term recovery and psychotherapy will help you in each each. Suffering is not an option. A fresh start is always possible!
