I am facing problem like hypertension because of my business is not going so well and also feel some time depressed please suggest some way to get out of this ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your business is not doing well, assess its worthiness. May be it is not a suitable business for that area or for you. If need be, cut your losses and start some other viable business, soon. Do talk with a business consultant to evaluate the situation. In most cases people who are suffering from hypertension have not developed proper coping skills. Your inability to respond properly to stress may only increase the problem. Take some lessons in stress management. Learn to deal with failure positively, and focus in the present. Make a detailed plan for your life and business and follow it with required support from your community or consultant.

I feel really worried for such teenagers who are ruining their and their parents life in fumes.myself is a homoeopath and I assure you that I will give my best in helping your son quit this menace but it can only be done if your son also want to quit this habit.We cannot implements our thoughts on others and especially if children then even more problem.So first ask him to talk to me.I think after talking to me for 10 minutes he will change his perception about smoking and can give a serious thought about quitting this habit.But important aspect is WHETHER HE WANT TO QUIT IT.

Better concentration and focus makes your daily life easier and productive. I have put down some pointers below that will help improve your concentration and memory. Get good nights rest 7-8 hours. Eat rights. Try and organise your day, this will help reduce anxiety and stress level during work. Don't try to do multitasking. Try to do most daunting task first thing in the morning. Don't try and look for perfection in everything you attempt. Take breaks from work or study at regular intervals this will help you unwind and concentrate better. Don't judge your work in comparison of others. Yoga, specially pranayaam will help. Attempt sudoko and crossword to improve your memory. Replace negative thoughts with productive thoughts. There is always room for improvement, channelise your energy to use your weakness as your strength. Jot down your thoughts to refer as a ready reckoner anything you do can we done better with a calm mind, have faith in yourself. Good luck & take care.

Hello dear, persistent feelings of tiredness, loss of interest & vague body symptoms of pain (creeping bones you said) is suggestive of depression. Now, the simplest solution to depression, tension, anxiety & similar problems ; is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things including a proper course of medicines to get rid of this problem plus meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!

1. Ginger Ginger can help reduce inflammation of the blood vessels in the head, thus providing relief from a headache. •Mix equal parts of ginger juice and lemon juice. Consume it once or twice a day. •Another option is to apply a paste of one teaspoon of dry ginger powder, also called sonth, and two tablespoons of water on the forehead for a few minutes. •You can also boil ginger powder or raw ginger in water, and inhale the vapor. •Chew one or two pieces of crystallized ginger candy. 2. Mint Juice Menthol and menthone are the primary components of mint which are very effective in alleviating headaches. Extract mint juice from a handful of mint leaves and apply it on forehead and temples to treat headache. You can also place mint tea compresses on the forehead to relieve discomfort. Along with mint juice, corainder juice is also effective in treating headaches. 3. Peppermint Oil Peppermint contains menthol that helps open up clogged blood vessels that cause headaches. It also has calming and soothing effects. •Mix three drops of peppermint essential oil in one tablespoon of almond oil, olive oil or just water. Massage your forehead and temples with it. Or, you can put crushed fresh peppermint leaves on your forehead. •Alternatively, you can prepare a steam treatment by adding a few drops of peppermint essential oil to a small pot of boiling water. Inhale the steam for a few minutes. 4. Basil Basil works as a muscle relaxant, making it a helpful treatment for mild headaches caused by tense muscles. Plus, it has calming and analgesic effects. •Put three or four fresh basil leaves in a cup of boiling water and let it simmer for a few minutes. Optionally, add a little honey and then sip the tea slowly. •You can also boil one tablespoon of basil leaves or a few drops of basil oil to a pot of boiling water and carefully lean over the pot to take in the steam. •Alternatively, chew some fresh basil leaves or massage your forehead with basil oil mixed with a base oil. 5. Lavender Oil Simply smelling the soothing scent of lavender essential oil can be of great help in relieving tension headaches. Research suggests that it can also help improve migraine symptoms. •Put a few drops of lavender essential oil on a tissue and inhale it. You can also add two drops of lavender oil to two cups of boiling water and inhale the steam. •Another option is to mix two or three drops of lavender essential oil in one tablespoon of carrier oil such as almond oil or olive oil and massage your forehead with it. Note: Do not take lavender oil orally. 6. Ice Pack The cold from ice helps reduce inflammation that contributes to headaches. Plus, it has a numbing effect on the pain. •Applying an ice pack to the back of your neck can give you relief from a migraine headache. •You can also place a washcloth dipped in ice-cold water over your head for five minutes. Repeat the process several times.

Sir I got nervous usually in any little problem. Usually got depress and it effects digestive system. Feel vomiting. Unwillingness for food. And at last week ness affect for long run. Although I back and recover in few days but it happen usually. Please suggest what should do.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Sir I got nervous usually in any little problem. Usually got depress and it effects digestive system. Feel vomiting. ...
Our body is linked to our mind and whenever we are emotionally disturbed, some part of the body which is weak already will get affected. You have very rightly connected your emotional state to your digestion. For nervousness, I suggest that you undergo counselling sessions to feel more confident from within and in control of yourself and the situation. The counsellor will help you to vent out whatever you are going through in a non judgemental and therapeutic space which is aimed at recovery from the stress and learning practical tips to handle stress better without feeling nervousness. Meanwhile some general tips foryou: 1. Keep in mind that you have some abilities and capabilities. If you are doing any work out of your comfort zone, then it's possible that you win feel nervous. All humans go through this and it is normal. But what helps to come out of nervousness and perform the job, is a core belief that I am capable and worthy of doing this job and I know how to do this job. If you don't have the knowledge then it is best to learn what is needed and then attempt the job. Eg. A receptionist must know how to type and answer phone calls. Thus it is important to know these skills before attempting to take this role. 2. Don't be afraid to make mistakes: all humans make mistakes even if they have been doing a particular work for many years. This is again human nature and tendency. So don't be hard on yourself and be ready to make mistakes. The best way is to learn from your error of judgement so that you don't do the same things next time. You will get hands on experience and know different ways of doing the same thing as well. People who succeed only make number of mistakes. Without making mistakes, nobody has yet succeeded. 3. From depressed I think that you feel disappointed in yourself. Please don't label yourself as depressed because disappointment is a normal emotion and nobody is immune to it. Life is dull of ups and downs. Your job is to bounce back and be ready to take the challenge again. The failure doesn't define you as a person. Failure and success are one part of life and you are much more than that. You might have not succeeded in one attempt. But you can make more attempts or try something new. There is no end to scope of exploration and learning. 4. Exercising regularly and eating light food full of lean proteins, complex carbs, good fats is very important for physical and mental health. Get your vit b 12 and vit d3 levels checked and if it's low then eat foods which will up this level or take supplements. Exercising is known to release natural and mood uplifting neuro transmitters to help feel good and confident about your self. And there are numerous health benefits including better digestion.

Do a deep breathing exercise. Deep breathing can help you relax and reduce any stress in your body, including your head. Take slow, even breaths and try to relax. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Exhale slowly, relaxing any areas in your body that feel tight. Picture a beautiful scene, like a sandy beach, a bright sunny garden, or a country road. Drop your chin toward your chest. Slowly rotate your head in a half circle from side to side. Take another deep breath and exhale slowly. Continue picturing the beautiful scene in your head. Repeat this exercise until you are in a state of relaxation.

I am a 22 years old and now I smoke cigarette can you suggest how I left cigarette.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am so glad that you want to give up smoking. Here is how to go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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 chewing gum or 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.

A lot of the physical problems that you have mentioned can occur due to stress. You may need some medication for the stuffy nose - for which you should consult an ENT - because a doctor can prescribe medication only after examining you. For the rest of the issues you should practice pranayama and yoga, do some relaxation exercises and consult a counsellor/ psychologist- who will be in a position to help you reduce your anxiety, build your self confidence, and help you overcome your fears.

I am 20 year old I also a engineering student I have not concrete in my study from 3 month before help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Retaining information to be recalled at will is the role of memory. For which you need to do the following: 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. Good social contacts are good for memory too: so make and keep good friends. 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.

Dear, please understand alcohol is not a reason for anything. It is acting as an inhibitor in the brain. Dopa-mine is released and you will be able to do anything when you are under the influence of alcohol. You will need self esteem and self confidence building psychotherapy.

Dear lybrate user, asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause behind asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your mother's blood for tc, dc, esr & ige. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via lybrate. In the mean-time she can take homoeopathic mother tincture aspidosperma q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Yes. You may take pain killers for relief from from body aches. But its always better to treat the cause than the symptoms, if you are sure that body aches are due to overwork and stress, then restrict your work load to human limits and find time to relax and relieve stress with rest.
