Hey My ques is that if a person smoke more then there is anything get damage in his or her body?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Smoking even a single cigarette is extremely harmful. Cigarette smoke has more than 4000 chemicals and most of them are dangerous. Your skin, heart, eyes, liver, lungs, esophagus, etc. Are the many organs to name just a few that will get seriously affected. Please do not believe anyone who says anything different. It is a lie to justify smoking and the harm is real and very bad.

You are probably making an unfair comparison with other people when you meet them. If you truly have faith in the strength of your personality, why do you abandon it when you meet other people? So there could be low self-esteem, poor self-image, and low self-confidence. May be you have incorporated these from somewhere in your childhood, inadvertently. I suspect this is so because in your true mind you believe otherwise but you can see that what is embedded in your unconscious mind is more powerful and you may have incorporated something contraindicative to your true self. Your reactions are really gross as a result. You could use affirmations quite effectively but I advise you to work with a counselor and identify that input from childhood and sort that out. Your emotions would play a very significant role too and it would help to go through some emotional therapy too. We are what we think we are, and since you have a huge difference when compared to others (mostly in the mind) your whole world changes. True faith in yourself must go deep down and cannot be easily shaken, which I think is lacking. In the bible there is a fabulous and true statement, ?Where there is true love, there is no fear.? And likewise I can confidently say, where there is true and complete faith, there is no fear.? Build your faith in yourself, and nothing can stop you.

Why most of the teenagers can't concentrate on their studies. Why do they get pimples n how to over come pimples marks.

Why most of the teenagers can't concentrate on their studies. Why do they get pimples n how to over come pimples marks.
Answering the second question first- due to hormonal changes, the sweat glands and other glands become more active and lead to release of oil from the skin, people who have oily skin develop pimples. You need to change some habits- like avoid oily and fried foods, wash your face often with a good face wash. As for concentration- it comes from focus- serious goals. If they have goals and have plans to achieve them concentration will follow.

For a good and glowing skin, take a proper sleep, plenty of water./ do not step out in the sun, without wearing a sunscreen. Nutritious diet rich in antioxidants (green vegetables and fresh fruits) and avoidance of stress will help. Depigmenting cream or facewash can be recommended to you for improving your condition depending upon your specific hyperpigmentation problem/ skin type.

What is the effect to stop adwize tablet after taking this tablet for 3 and half years to cure my autistic child now aged 13 years, who is also is an epilectic patient.

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Your child has to continue Antiepileptic medication. As regards Autism ia an associated disorder, hence advisable not to stop medication. You can see Autism is a condition that affects mental and physical well being. In fact autism is not a single disorder rather a group of ailments that is classified as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Autistic children have problems with social interactions. They may also encounter problems with verbal and non-verbal communication, exhibit pattern of repetitive behavior with narrow, restricted interests, hyper sensitive to light, sound, touch etc (sensory overload). Otherwise majority of the cases are diagnosed anywhere between the age of 2-5 years. Interestingly, there are many individuals who may have ASD but never aware of it. Though the exact cause for autism is unknown, genetics plays an important part. Environmental, immunological and metabolic factors may have a contributory role. Since, it is a spectrum of disorders, there is no single reason attributed to this condition. Genetic, environmental, immunological and metabolic causes may be the contributing factor. Where genetic basis is identified as a cause, palliative measures are initiated immediately. When the reasons are not clear, diagnosis, classification and management invariably gets delayed. As stated earlier under watchful eyes of parents or family physicians, autistic symptoms could be recognized early. Severely autistic infants do not make normal babbling sound and have abnormal eye movements. Some of the symptoms include but restricted to limited vocabulary, unable to follow verbal or facial cues, abnormal eye movement or hand eye co-ordination etc. They also tend to make incoherent sounds. These children also do not follow simple commands. Many times these symptoms are glossed over delaying early diagnosis. Denial, my child is normal attitudes contribute to the delay in early diagnosis. In general ASD is loosely classified into five different types. However, this classification is hotly debated. 1. Pervasive developmental disorder(PDD) - Children suffering from PDD show delay in development of social and language skills 2. Kanner?s syndrome - This is most common type of autistic disorder. They live in their own world and have poor social interactions. They do not like any change in their routine. Individuals with this disorder get affected by loud sounds and cannot lead a normal life as they have low communication skills 3. Rett?s syndrome - Usually seen in females and is quite rare. They are mentally retarded and show muscle atrophy. The individuals show repetitive hand movements. 4. Childhood disintegrative disorder- The symptoms starts to appear in otherwise normal children between 2-4 years of age. They stop talking and interacting with people around them. Individuals start losing motor skills after the age of two 5. Asperger syndrome- Often misdiagnosed as obsessive ?Compulsive disorder or Attention ?Deficit disorder. They don?t show normal social interactions and have problems communicating. Children with Asperger syndrome show repetitive actions and exhibit poor motor skills. Some are thought have talent on which if they focus on could reach great height. Autism is known for decades, unfortunately, there are very few medications available to treat ASD. However, not all hopes are lost. In contemporary medical system (allopathic medicine) different symptom specific treatment options are offered for autistic patients. It is to be noted that these are mood altering medicines. Therefore, qualified physicians should be consulted and the medications administered under care. Ayruvedic approach: In ayurveda there are some herbal medications prescribed for autistic individuals. These are more of remedial measures than cure. Therefore, these medications are to be taken for life. As in many mood altering disorders, besides medications, management is suggested. Very interestingly, an Indian mother of an autistic son, Mrs. Soma Mukhopadhyay, developed Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) to train autistic children to lead near normal life. This has been demonstrated to be a boon for several severely autistic children. Her son Tito Mukhopadhyay is indisputably the most famous Indian with autism. With his mother?s guidance he had written many poems and authored a book titled ?Beyond the Silence: My Life, The World and Autism. Noting her revolutionary method she was brought to the United States by Cure Autism Now Foundation. Since then she had refined her techniques. Currently she is running ?Helping Autism through Learning and Outreach ? HALO? foundation (www.Halo-soma.Org). Recently, she had published a book ?Understanding autism Through Rapid Prompting Method? that details the technique developed by her.

Homeopathic Remedies for Depression

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
Homeopathic Remedies for Depression

Depression is a psychiatric disorder that is characterized by constant feelings of sadness, low self-esteem and loss of interest in daily affairs. Depression is most likely caused by hormonal imbalances, genetic problems, drug addiction and grief.

Depression can be characterized by its symptoms:

  1. You will experience constant feeling of sadness
  2. There may be sudden outbursts of anger
  3. You may have difficulties in concentrating and executing various tasks
  4. Constant feeling of tiredness
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Changes in weight
  7. Social withdrawal
  8. Difficulties in sleeping at night

Homeopathy focuses on treating disorders by rooting out the cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms. Homeopathic treatments also do not cause any side effect to the body.

The various remedies that are used to treat depression are:

  1. Causticum: It is used to treat symptoms of depression that occurs after losing someone. It can also help in episodes of frequent crying, mental dullness and forgetfulness.
  2. Arsenicum album: This remedy is used to treat excessive worrying. Usually people who worry about not meeting their expectations benefit most from this remedy.
  3. Aurum metallicum: This remedy is used to treat symptoms of suicidal thoughts, despair and low self-esteem. These symptoms may aggravate during colder months.
  4. Cimicifuga: This treatment is recommended if you feel extremely upset and gloomy. If you face symptoms of neck pain and headaches during depression, then this remedy might help you.
  5. Phosphoric acid: If you face symptoms of introversion and loss of appetite, this remedy should work wonders.
  6. Sepia: This remedy is recommended when you face symptoms of loneliness, anger and are easily disturbed. It may also cure symptoms of digestive disorders during depression.
  7. Pulsatilla nigricans: Pulsatilla nigricans is used to treat symptoms of whining, jealousy and mood disorders. It is usually recommended for women who have depression along with menopause or puberty.
  8. Kali phosphoricum: This is used to treat symptoms of emotional stress, lack of concentration and fatigue resulting from depression.

A Note of Caution: Even though the names of the medicines have been listed above, still it is advisable to consult a trained homeopathic practitioner as the potency and dosage of the medicine will differ from person to person and can only be decided by the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized homeopathy and ask a free question.

I am aged 39Y. I'm unable to speak since 12/01/2016. I have contacted ENT specialist and undergone STOBORNOSCOPY on 19/01/2016 as suggested by the doctor. The doctor has written stobornoscopy report that PHONOTARY gap is positive. Please suggest, can I able to speak or Not?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
A positive phonatory gap means the vocal folds fail to close during phonation. A phonatory gap may be seen in patients who have muscle tension dysphonia, vocal fold paresis or paralysis, loss of tissue, or vocal fold flaccidity. Treatment aims to rectify the cause.

Are there side effects in prolonging the consumption of antidepressants? Do we become dependent on antidepressants?

Are there side effects in prolonging the consumption of antidepressants?
Do we become dependent on antidepressants?
Antidepressant drugs are inherently incapable of being addictive. However, many people misunderstand the continued need to take antidepressants for long periods as addiction. it is like antihypertensive and antidiabetic medicines. But there is scope for stoppage here. Side effects depend upon the exact medicine you are using. In general they are very safe. Side effects are usually due to improper usage.

Neither Melzap nor trapex is a antidepressant, they are primarily sleeping and anxiety reducing medications. If you are still experiencing any symptoms of depression you need to see a Psychiatrist and discuss options.

Signs That Show You Need a Mental Health Checkup

Stress is very common these days due to the busy modern lifestyle and can cause symptoms of disorders of the mind. There are certain signs that foretell an impending mental problem, these signs should be taken seriously and a mental health professional should be consulted.

Some of these signs that indicate that you should go for a mental health checkup include:

1. Appetite disorder - Appetite problems such as loss of appetite or overeating may indicate mental problems. Moreover, eating foods excess in fat and sugar can indicate signs of stress.

2. Difficulties in interpersonal communication - Progressive reduction in interaction with people to no communication at all indicates signs of stress and a mental health professional should be consulted in this case.

3. Insomnia - Significant modifications in sleeping patterns or not being able to sleep due to stress for a long duration of time need to be addressed as they can result in complications.

4. Overactive mind - The overactive mind is a cause of anxiety where the mind is always thinking and thoughts race through causing anxiety and an inability to relax. A normally active mind is healthy but an overactive mind which can't seem to relax for extended periods of time should be looked into.

5. Lack of interest in activities - Showing symptoms were once fun activities seem worrisome and fearful can indicate signs of mental disorders.

6. Emotional distress causing problems at work and home - Inability to focus at work or everyday activities due to emotional stress can result in depression. Thus, symptoms such as these should be diagnosed at the earliest to prevent complications.

Dear , anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.
