Dear sir, my wife got influenced by brahma kumaris organization. She is not cooperating in sexual life. Can this problem be solved. Regards

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I guess you mean that she has a spiritual calling. If that is genuine, I suppose you have to live with that fact that your sex life may be all but over. Not that it is necessary for her to curb sexual activity. It is just that people, once spiritually moved, give up all earthly desires and pleasures to sustain their spiritual sanctity, so that they do not get easily distracted by material pleasures and therefore from their spiritual pursuits. I don? t fully agree with this because it is very easy to do this to remain pious. The challenge is to be able to maintain this in the thick and thin of life and live a balanced life. But I could be a voice in the wilderness on this front because you have seen most holy people giving up all the pleasures of life to pursue a religious life. I don? t suppose they are doing it just to avoid it but are doing so to give it up as a sacrifice too. Whatever you believe, it now matters that your wife has given it up whether as a sacrifice or to preserve her spiritual state is for her to say. The other point of concern is that it is a unilateral decision, and I fail to see how that is justified when one has married to stay faithful to the nuptial obligations. But then spiritual callings can happen at any time and must be respected, if it is genuine. This position of mine could raise a lot of controversies but I am open to other differing opinions to help you understand your situation and learn to live with it. Of course nobody can stop you from leaving this marriage and going into another for your own needs. The fact that she is still living with you may be some consolation; and that she is not rejecting you for another, even if it is god.

Depression - How To Deal With It?

PG Diploma in Clinical Training, Psychology, MA - Psychology, BA - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Depression - How To Deal With It?

Depression is an addictive state, which is hard to get rid of. Everybody who suffers from it encounters it in an unexpected way, yet we all agree that it can be a major well-being issue. It makes a person miserable, disappointed, restless or numb for long and tedious timeframes, and is debilitating, particularly when you can't demonstrate your feelings and worries to anybody. It can meddle with your productivity and can become a concern not only in workplaces, but also in social circles.

So here's how to deal with a friend or family member in a depressed state of mind:

  1. Never Say 'You're Too Much': When someone with depression is told "you're too much," particularly by somebody near them, it can send them spiralling into blame and nervousness and bitterness. Being encouraging and empowering is likewise useful.
  2. Try not to Shame People for Being Negative: Dejection changes the world into a scene of pessimism. Discouraged individuals don't just focus on the negatives, but they also disregard the positives.
  3. Do Understand That Depression Doesn't Mean "Trouble": Melancholy is a condition with an assortment of side effects like exhaustion, confused mind state and rest issues. These are all side effects of melancholy. Crabbiness is an exceptionally basic side effect, which once in a while is encountered by many individuals, and can lead to an expanded sensitivity. Normally, it's difficult to be sympathetic with someone who is behaving grumpily. But you need to make a conscious effort to still see the positive in depressed individuals and lead them to hope.
  4. Do Validate: Approval can help manage a depressed state, and can wean a friend or family member out of depression. Remember that someone with dejection is not living in the same universe as you. The laws that oversee your universe don't exist in theirs.

Depressed individuals require your understanding, your empathy, and your affection, considerably more when they are having a troublesome day, week or month. It is hard, but possible. Discouraged individuals value a positive backing in particular. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

My uncle is having some suspicious behavior and very short tempered. He is greedy and not at all honest. He was having some extra marital affair and beaten my aunt few times. He is living in same house with my aunt but in separate room. He always lock his room when away. Even long years back he manipulated and had sex with one of my cousin when she was minor. Now whenever we speak with my aunt she is never happy with her life. She is a working lady. Is my uncle is curable? Is my aunt can have any counselling to be happy?

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
From your account, your Uncle is a habitual Sexual Offender and is a criminal according to the law. Kindly take advice from an advocate or File an FIR with the Police as he can be attempting to harm other minors or girls, or women as well. As for your aunt, if she is aware of such things happening at home and is facilitating these things to happen, then she would be considered as accomplice to crime. If not she could be suffering from depressive illness and refer her to a psychiatrist as early as possible. It takes a braveheart to prevent crimes. Such crimes are very common in indian households. Most of the Sexual Crimes are perpetuated by brothers, stepfathers, fathers, uncles, cousins, grandparents, close friends and family friends and because of STIGMA and FAMILY HONOR and "I DONT BELIEVE HE WILL DO THAT" such people get away and commit sexual crimes again and again.

I am having some short temper what can be done? I workout daily have a good diet too.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must find out if there was any reason in childhood for you to have a short fuse. When you have done that go and meet with a counselor and deal with that. It is good that you are doing exercise and eating well. The anger must be expressed all the time and every time. The only problem is that you must express it appropriately. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them is the issue. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands, scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. Now, it is also wise to find out why you get angry: is it too fast, is it too high, or is it without provocation? These will help you to determine whether it is worth getting angry at all, in some instances. These can be discussed with a counselor, in case you are still having problems.

Suffering From Parkinson's Disease - How You Can Maximise The Effect Of Levodopa?

MBBS, MHS, MD - Neurology (USA), Fellowship in Epilepsy, Clinical Attachment in Movement disorders
Neurologist,
Suffering From Parkinson's Disease - How You Can Maximise The Effect Of Levodopa?

If you are being treated for Parkinson's disease. How can you maximize the effect of Levodopa? The effect of levodopa can be maximized by increasing its absorption from the digestive system. In particular, taking levodopa on an empty stomach is very important. 

  1. Take on an empty stomach: Do not eat anything 1 hour before taking levodopa. Do not eat anything for at least 30 minutes and if possible 1 hour after taking it. Take the pill with 2 glasses of water so that it can dissolve. If taking the levodopa on an empty stomach makes you nauseous, confirm that your medication has the right amount of carbidopa in relation to the levodopa (25%). If you continue to feel nauseous, you can eat a piece of white bread around the time that you take levodopa. Do not apply any butter, yogurt, cheese or similar high protein spreads. Protein can drastically decrease the absorption of levodopa. 
  2. Get your constipation treated: This is critically important too. Being constipated can slow down the passage of levodopa through the digestive system. In most patients, drinking adequate water and taking stool softeners is helpful. 
  3. Get your ulcer treated: It can be difficult to recognize that you have a gastric ulcer. However, if you have a burning sensation in your stomach at any time, or belch frequently, you may have a gastric ulcer. If you think you have an ulcer you should get tested (there is a simple breath test now) and treated with antibiotics (not antacids!) 
  4. Do not take levodopa with iron tablets: The iron binds to levodopa and prevents its absorption. Keep a gap of at least two hours between these two medications. 
  5. Try taking levodopa with orange juice and carbonated water (soda): Mix equal quantities of orange juice and carbonated water (soda). Take your regular levodopa with a glass of this preparation instead of water. The carbonated water hastens disintegration of the tablet, and the acidity of both things helps in levodopa absorption. There are special tablets of levodopa (dispersible levodopa, Madopar) which can be dissolved in this preparation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurologist.

MBBS
General Physician,
It is smoker cough. So try to further reduce the smoking if not leave it completely it is better. Do warm saline gargle regularly. Have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevents infection. Go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises. It will improve.

I stopped smoking from past 20 days, I use to smoke for 6 years tell me how to make my body clean now.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Just keeping away from smoke will help you a lot eat healthy, have lot of fruits everyday, do breathing exercises for relaxation, have a good relaxing sleep daily. Avoid alcohol or tobacco of any form.
