Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Chewing tobacco is also as dangerous as cigarette smoking. In the long run, chewing tobacco habit can cause, mouth, throat or stomach cancer, ulcers, mental disorders and addiction disorders etc. I suggest you to quit the habit using your mind power. I will help you with motivation therapy. Take care.

Therapy along cognitive behavioural therapy will help. Start by recognising your thought processes just before and during a panic attack. Medication may have some benefit but unlikely to cure it on its own.

Hello. Having prolonged bouts of negativity loss of confidence, depressed mood are all indicators of stress. If not taken care of properly, many times this stress causes a person to land up in mental illnesses like depression. One of the simplest tricks to beat stress is creative diary writing. For that, all you have to do is simply write a few lines about what good events happened in the day & what went wrong. Next, also try to write a few lines about how you can correct what went wrong. This exercise should be done at the end of the day. This wont take more than 30 minutes of your time but I can assure you that this can do wonders for your confidence & mood. Do this for next 10 days & get back to me with your experience. Good luck.

Last 6 months I am suffering from anxiety and also I am taking prescription from neuro psychologist now I am feeling better but my question is when I will stop my tablets.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will stop taking medication when you get well and work along with a counselor to develop skills and techniques and tools to handle the daily stresses of life. Please combine the two and get the best results. Then as you improve, anywhere between 6 months to three years, with no episodes of anxiety, you can be weaned off of the medication. Anxiety is fear based, and it is an abnormal reaction to fear. These adaptations are not working for you and so the medication. In counseling you could identify the source of this fear and deal with that event in the present and gradually reduce the scare and face it with confidence. In the meantime, do aerobic exercises, yoga and meditation, have a good diet, sleep well and do not increase your stress. In other words; just be responsible, be respectful, and be functional always.

3 Ways To Manage Chronic Depression!

3 Ways To Manage Chronic Depression!

Are you suffering from extreme depression? Does your depression episode continues for a long time and makes you feel too tired to get out of bed? Chronic depression is capable of turning your life upside down, causing turmoil with all your activities, thereby, spoiling your regular life totally. At times, a person can get so drained by depression that getting out of bed seems impossible because of fatigue. It is quite difficult to deal with such situations.

Here are some important tips on how to overcome your chronic depression and get out of bed.

  1. Be depressed upright: It is likely to be driven by the voices in your head during your depression. You should respond by replying to the voices that you are depressed, but you are going to be depressed outside. This is important, as activity and depression do not go well together. You should try to stop your thinking totally and put yourself in an automatic mode. Preparing to deal with thoughts from before is beneficial. When your body is in motion, it is easier to deal with the thoughts.
  2. Try to make it to the shower: When you do not feel like leaving your bed at all, you should try making it to the shower somehow. Taking a shower makes you a bit relaxed and diverted and you can expect relief from your depressive episode. This is an effective way to get yourself up and running from bed, instead of isolating yourself under the blanket. Taking a shower might bring you some hope and encourage you to step out of bed and do something productive. Even if you decided to be in bed all day strictly, a refreshing shower is likely to change your mind.
  3. Bribe yourself: You can try bribing yourself as a reason for getting out of bed. You can remind yourself how good you will feel after having a cup of hot coffee, or how nice it would feel to listen to a certain song while going to work.

It is important to give yourself a purpose or reason to get out of bed. Many people believe that they might feel like leaving the bed in spite of being heavily depressed, if they had a worthy purpose. It is very important for you to get involved in something. You might hate a job, or hate working, but it will give you a reason to divert from your depressive thoughts. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

I have a chain smoker & a very bad habit. please suggest me some good medicine for this bad habit.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are medicines to help in the initial stages and you meet with a doctor for the prescription. You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

You both may be having different ideas and fatancies about sexual relationship. It is also possible that your urge is stronger than hers. But to learn more about it talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Sexual satisfaction is very important for a marriage to sustain. Any dissatisfaction of sexual needs will complicate the relation further. Kindly seek professional help at the earliest.

This phenomenon has been studied. The persons who have mental illness or epilepsy and organic brain damage are more susceptible to either suggestions of something like magnetic changes might cause such a phenomenon. Treatment is to give a minor tranquilizer or sedative injection or antipsychotics or antiepileptic dose increase well in advance by own doctor.

Hello, blood sugar level of 320 mg (fasting or pp not mentioned) is very high, suggesting uncontrolled diabetes. Needs urgent treatment so as to control the sugar level. It is essential to bring fasting glucose to about 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. Otherwise a lot of long term complications related to diabetes can set in causing severe difficulties. Foods to be avoided are sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, items made out of maida. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Should exercise daily at least for 1 hour, brisk walking is a better option. If you need any specific guidelines please come in a private conversation with all the above details plus her weight, height and dietary pattern, then I will be able to guide better. Thanks.

Hi Lybrate user Try to stay positive. Remember that your value does not decrease just because someone else fails to see it. Remind yourself you have successfully completed your b tech. Just think about your past hard works, and don't give up. Make a list of 10 things you have done, and are thankful for. Try to focus on what you have done for improving your self confidence. And for your laziness- develop a routine or create a everyday list of all things you have to do and try to follow it, at least one weeks. All the Best.

Depression: Know Its Homeopathic Treatment

Depression is a state of mind that adversely affects the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. It’s becoming an unpleasant existence in everyone’s life these days due to lot of factors such as:

  1. Competition with Others,
  2. Desires not getting fulfilled,
  3. Relationship related concerns,
  4. Performance Pressures,
  5. Societal Pressures etc.

In most cases, depression does not have a single cause. Rather, it results from a mix of factors i.e. your genes, events in your past, your current circumstances, and much more.

Depression, like many other behavioral health issues, has complex interacting Biological, Psychological, Social and Environmental contributing factors.

Depression in teenagers is very common owing to hormonal changes and increased stress of coping with studies and the social world. Genetic factors also play an important role in triggering depression in teenagers.

Signs and Symptoms:

  1. Persistent Sadness: Constant feeling of sadness irrespective of the company.
  2. Thoughts or attempts of suicide: Thinking that suicide will solve all problems.
  3. Fatigue: A state of decreased energy levels.
  4. Helplessness and Hopelessness: Living with a though that nothing will ever get better.
  5. Loss of interest in daily activities: Lack of interest in your hobbies, your favourite pastimes or social activities, or sex etc.

  10. Self-loathing: Feeling of worthlessness or guilt.
  11. Concentration Issues: Trouble focusing or remembering things.

Homeopathy For Depression-

Homeopathic remedies for depression in teenagers are no different from those used for treating depression in adults.

In the initial stages or in the milder forms or in people who are not aware of the disease, depression can go unidentified till its implications become too obvious. People often overlook it as a mere low mood or some start assuming it as a part of their psychological makeup. Even families or spouse start accommodating accordingly, thereby making identification of depression all the more difficult. Homeopathic treatment for depression is great form of alternative medicine and natural therapy for depression.

Advantages of using Homeopathy for Depression:

  1. The best part of homeopathic treatment is that the homeopathic medicines are totally side effect free and its long term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation.
  2. The options in conventional treatments are either to take antidepressant medications or to remain depressed, however, homeopathic medicines are said to be side effect free and its long term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation.
  3. There are lot of medications in homeopathy which are used, post understanding of the behaviour of a person; his/her complete biological and genetic status, his/her existing medical conditions. 
  4. It is always recommended to consult a homeopath and not to go for self-medication, as it requires specific potencies of medicines for them to be effective on the medical condition.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Upto an extent psychologist will be able to remove a particular traumatic incident from the brain with the help of hypnotherapy. More important is to overcome those thoughts. That can be easily done than employing hypnotherapy. Take care.
