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 am drinking daily one beer containing 5 percent alcohol. Is it good for health?
Dear Sir It is recommended that you should not drink more than 14 units of alcohol in a week. If you are driving 1 bottle (330 ml) of beer containing. 5% alcohol it will amount to 1.7 units a day, so you are just under the recommended units. However, it is not advisable to drink daily as even drinking small amount of alcohol daily can damage your physical health as well can lead to psychological issues like addiction. Drinking beer has no known health benefits.

Can OCD relapse? Also can OCD cause decrease in libido and increased restlessness?

MBBS, D.P.M, MD, PLAB, MRCPsych
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Dear Sir Chances of relapse in ocd especially if you have stopped the treatment is high. OCD can lead to anxiety and restlessness and constant preoccupation with obsessive thoughts may sometimes lead to decreased sex drive. Also, many times ocd is associated with depression which can result in decreased libido. Thanks Regards Dr. Ankita Mishra.

Dear Sir I an Sorry you are feeling this way. There are no tests to determine whether it is genetics. Also the brain scan is unlikely to show any changes in depression. We routinely do not recommend these tests. If there is a family history of depression or mood disorder, then it suggests a genetic component. However, it really does not matter as the treatment remains the same. There is no point in worrying whether your depression is caused by genetic factor or not .what is important is that you take treatment at the earliest. Please see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and Treatment. Depression is a treatable medical conditions and I am certain that you will feel better with right treatment and support.

Dear Mam Thank you for your query. Many patients who are prescribed oleanz complain of sleepiness. However, for most of them this side effect goes away with continued use. Please do not stop the medication without consulting your psychiatrist. If the problem persists, discuss with your psychiatrist regarding other options which are less sedating. Thanks Regards Dr. Ankita Mishra.

Dear Sir I will strongly recommend not to take any medication without seeing a psychiatrist. If a person is suffering from depression, then first of all he / she will need an evaluation. We need to rule out if there are any physical health problems contributing to the symptoms. Then the treatment plan needs to be formulated depending upon the outcome of assessment which may consists of medications as well as psychological therapy. Please consult a psychiatrist as it is not advisable to start these medications without supervision. Hope this helps Regards.
