Avoid stress of office work. Take rest during work. Keep lookafter of your health. Eat salaad and juice. Avoid spicy and oily foods. It spoil your health and mind both. Try to eat home made foods. If not possible then eat salaad and juice. Drink plenty of water during day time.

I am 42 years old working woman and I am obsessed with daily horoscopes and astrology I read daily horoscope and fear all day what should I do also I have a friend on whom I have spent lakhs rupees but I feel unappreciated I take venize xr and etirest

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
If you don' t get help with reading horoscopes and astrology, then stop reading them. You are the best judge of what to do, when to do and how to do. Successful people don' t read horoscopes to excel in life. They go out and do things that are important for them. If you sit in fear and don' t do anything, you will never achieve anything. If you have to eat, then you have to learn to cook and then eat that food. You can take a horse to the pond, but the horse has to make the effort to drink the water.

How to reduce my anger, I am always shouting at my friends and family members, I can't control myself? pls give me gud suggestion.

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.

Stress and diabetes don't mix. Excess stress can elevate blood sugar levels. But you can find relief by sitting quietly for 15 minutes, meditating or practicing yoga.

I got severe ocd .now for 3 years am using clomipramine hydrochloride .I tried withdrawal once but my ocd relapsed after 2 months. Now my question is have I to continue this med lifelong? Am asking because of its severe side effects including total sexual dysfunction.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Yes you need to continue medications for OCD fro many years, may be life long. As you said clomipramine produces severe sexual dysfunction, but now newer drugs with lesser of these side effects have come. Discuss with your psychiatrist freely and seek and try alternative medications. All the best.

I failed very depressed due to studies as I have alot study nowadays by which I am always busy working.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I can give study tips to study better and easily. 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Hi My daughter 34 years old married for 13 years, having lovely daughter of 6 yrs old & 42yrs old husband software engineer. It earning high salary owning high rise flat working from residence & engaged all the time with laptop, tv mobile only. He is a perfect saint, has no vices. It appears now that my daughter is totally unhappy with marriage& considers us responsible. She is suffering from high depression & turns down all our advice's as if we are her enemy. I am afraid whether she will be mad. Please advise what we should do.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
If she is having marital problem, the best option would be marital therapy. The success of marriage depends on participation and compromises by both husband and wife. However if your daughter has developed depression, she must be treated first for that, before any counselling is started.

heel pain and treatment

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy)
Physiotherapist, Indore
heel pain and treatment
Heel pain?
Heel pain is a very common foot complaint and may involve injury to the bone, fat pad, ligaments, tendons or muscles. Heel pain can also be referred by a pinched nerve in your lower back.

It is important to have your heel pain thoroughly assessed to ensure an accurate diagnosis and subsequent treatment.

Anyone can suffer from heel pain, but certain groups seem to be at increased risk, including:

Middle aged men and women
Active people eg running sports
People who are very overweight
Children aged between 8 and 13 years
Pregnant women
People who stand for long periods of time.
Common sources of heel pain
Achilles tendon rupture
Achilles tendonitis / tendinitis
Heel spur
High ankle sprain
Muscle strain (muscle pain)
Overuse injuries
Peroneal tendonitis
Pinched nerve
Plantar fasciitis
Psoriatic arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis
Severs disease
Shin splints
Sprained ankle
Stress fracture feet
Common causes of heel pain?
Some of the many causes of heel pain can include:

Abnormal walking style (such as rolling the feet inwards)
Ill-fitting shoes eg narrow toe, worn out shoes
Standing, running or jumping on hard surfaces
Recent changes in exercise program
Heel trauma eg. Stress fractures
Bursitis (inflammation of a bursa)
Health disorders, including diabetes and arthritis.
Heel pain treatment
Most heel pain is caused by a combination of poor biomechanics, or muscle weakness or tightness. The good news is that heel pain can be effectively managed once the cause is identified.

Most heel pain can be successfully treated via:

Pain and pressure relief techniques
Biomechanical correction eg orthotics, taping, foot posture exercises
Muscle stretches and massage
Lower limb muscle strengthening
Proprioceptive and balance exercises to stimulate your foot intrinsic muscles.
If you feel that your footwear or sports training schedule are potentially causing your heel pain, then we recommend that you seek the advice of a sports physiotherapist, podiatrist or trained footwear specialist (not just a shop assistant) to see if your shoe is a match for your foot; or discuss your training regime to see if you are doing too much.

Heel pain and injury are extremely common. With accurate assessment and early treatment most heel pain injuries respond extremely quickly to physiotherapy allowing you to quickly resume pain-free and normal activities of daily living.

Please ask you physiotherapist for their professional treatment advice.

I am very much troubled. I am not happy from within. I keep on thinking about something that has never happened. I always think negative about everything. I keep talking to myself. Try to judge everything. Every small thing makes me judgemental. And one more thing. I can't stay happy. I don't enjoy when anything good happen. I don't like to celebrate festivals and my birthday. I get sad for no reason.
