Homeopath,
I want to quit smoking. But how. And I wanna to growth up in my body. But how?
Leaving any addiction very much depends upon the will power of the person. You need to promise yourself that you will quit. Also gradually decrease the no of cigrattes you are smoking, sudden leaving would result in withdrawal symptoms and you will get more craving for the pipe. Also take reckwedge no. 77, german homoeopathic medicine. Positive thinking and strong control along will medicine should be able to help you to quit smoking. To build the muscle mass, take more of protein rich diet and join a gym for muscle workout. It would definately add bulk to your body.

I think you need to know your legal rights. Talk to your father or brother about how you feel about all this. You will have to be more assertive. You may have to consult an advocate if you want to protect your property rights.

Hi. I'm 24 year old woman. I'm married from past 3 years. I'm under a severe stress due to both work and family. Because my husband is also my boss. He is a workaholic and I am not. I don't like bringing my work to home. And he says I'm unworthy and lazy. This breaks me. I love him. But he sees me more like an employee not like a wife. He doesn't agree for counselling. He says it's waste of time and money. I think I am going crazy.Please tell sir.

The best thing for you would be to not work at the same place. If you can try, go for some other working option. Difference in work attitude will interfere in your domestic well being.

Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc.

It appears that your husband is feeling neglected after the birth of your son. Please see that you spend some more time with your husband as well. At the same time see that you both have enough private time. You need to have active sex life again which will create a stronger bond between the two of you. He also will feel loved then. Apart from this, talk to him about what is bothering him. Ask him how will he feel loved, and try to do that for him. Tell him verbally as well that you love him. His silence for 2 days is his way of showing his frustration and anger. Try to listen to him and do what will please him. Also tell him how he can help you and share your burden. The birth of your son has changed lot many things in life for you both. Try to enjoy life with the new addition to your family. All the best.

I feel I am always at my emotional poles. Sometimes extremely happy or excited, other times dull. I have extreme absent mindedness. Since I was a kid, I have been forgetting keys, lost 2 mobile phones, forgot to pull my zip up. I have a chronic procrastination problem always doing things at the last minute and usually missing deadlines, I am going through the final year of medical school, and I haven't been able to study properly except the last 15 days before exams since my 10th grade. I have failed twice, and the others, just pass. I have also failed in class 11. I lose my patience when I start reading my books and immediately fall asleep. I get easily distracted by ideas in my head, and forget what I was originally doing. In fact I make hand and body gestures without even knowing. I plan to do a lot of things, but cannot follow on them. Also, I get very conscious in social situations and am not able to communicate properly. Usually I regret my social actions later on.

Hi lybrate-user! First of all do not worry. You actually need some treatment and counselling, it will be cured unless otherwise you volunteer to overcome. There may be many reasons because of which you are not able to overcome this problem from childhood, if at all this was corrected at an young age, you would not have faced this now. Anyway past is past, now it is not too late. I wanted you to not do things fast anytype of work. I wanted you to do your daily routines slowly like having food, drinking water etc. Each and everything just take sometime relax and then do your work. Regarding your studies study in portion by portion, study for some time when you are not able to you can always take break relax, and then start again, I wanted you to apply the same during your exams and studies. If you are finding difficulty can seek a Psychologist or a counsellor who will guide you through to overcome this problem. Take care. Everything is possible. With regards, Psy. MSV.

As a sports person, you will need your sleep to be normal always. Try these techniques and see how successful you are: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Nowadays my vocabulary sound is not good. It's very tough for others to understand . Mostly 'S' sound is coming while talking. What to do for this ? How can I change.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

At your age, you are hooked to wrong habit. You do pranayaam as taught by baba ramdev on astha channel 5.30 to 7 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom if you like or bramri and udgit are a must. You will get miraculous results that will change the direction of your thoughts from useless ones to highly constructive ones.

Hope is what makes the world go. You need to stop worrying and brooding about the issue and take some constructive actions. This would help you gain confidence and take correct decisions. Understand this is a phase which you can tide over by being positive

I am gone to depression from 1 year. About think my past situations. How can I get got of it? Any solution.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Please do not fight your symptoms, the more you fight to get rid of them, the more the conflict. Your condition is a result of faulty thinking over the years. Expectations, fear of outcome etc etc just be brave enough for any kind of outcome and trust destiny, your shoulders will get lighter.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.
