Doctors some days ago I have asked for medicine for removing habits for smoking and drinking but is there any medicine jisko power form me kisi bhi food me mix kar ke dia jaa sakke. please help I am really worried for my papa. Recently my tau ji passed away due to cancer.

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Agra
if your dad is not suffering from Kidney stones or gall bladder stones, than mix 1 gram lime stone (choona) in 100 gram curd and ask him to eat. lime stone is the best medicine to heal the damage done by alcohol, secondly talk to your father about the horrors of smoking, make him emotional, this is the best way. Some natural tips: The grape diet can actually help you to get rid of alcohol cravings. It is one of the most popular home remedies for quitting alcohol. In this diet, you have to eat grapes for about 25 days. You are not allowed to eat anything else. Wines are made of grapes and if you eat them, you will not crave for alcohol at all. This diet should be followed for about a month in order to leave alcohol completely. This will surely work for you! However if you feel unwell in the middle of this diet then it is advisable that you should discontinue. Dates are one of the oldest and most popular home remedy for getting rid of alcoholism. If you are not able to quit alcohol then this will help you to get rid of it instantly. Alcoholism can be easily treated with the help of dates. You can rub some dates in water and drink the solution twice or thrice in a day. This will help you to get rid of alcohol completely. This remedy has been used by many people and it worked wonders too! You would need to drink the solution for a month in order to see visible results. Alcohol addition is something that affects your body in a negative way. So, have dates as much as you can! Bitter gourd can help you get rid of alcohol and also cure your damaged kidney. alcohol damages the kidney which can also lead to death. You can have bitter gourd juice early in the morning on a daily basis in order to quit alcohol. This remedy will surely work as it has worked for other people. The taste is bitter and not great but you can mix the juice with buttermilk for better taste. Thanks Consult me if still he drinks

Dear Lybrate user lybrate-user ,every thing happens for reason so there must be some reason for your sadness, may be due to any reason or lonliness or bitter exprience with friends or anyone. We can not make everyone happy its just impossible what maximum any one can do is to make himself/herself happy, and its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy. We get only one life after that we don't know what will happen in future, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things first start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything .you can take help of any counsellor ,you can also contact me regarding this. Take care.

I'm addicted to the drugs so what can I do to get away from it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You definitely need rehabilitation immediately, where they will first take you through the detoxification process, to remove all the toxins related to the drug in use. This will lighten the physical craving to a large extent and enable you to then do the follow up course of rehabilitation through the 12 Step program. If you have a family, they will be asked to attend some sessions both with you and independently, to facilitate their role during and after the recovery program. Besides any known illnesses, other health parameters will need to be examined and treated. A psychological assessment is advised too. The rate of relapse is rather high but an addict who has ?hit rock bottom? is ripe for intervention. If you are there, then your prognosis in your very first attempt at rehabilitation looks encouraging. This is a situation that cannot be treated without a residential setting for the best outcomes. This itself will be used by you to claim inability for various reasons and is part of the denial mechanism used by addicts. So do not show resistance to the proposals initiated by the recovery therapists, and just comply, for your own good and for that of others who are surely affected.

Anxiety
When you Feel Anxious …

1. Relax your breathing. Take deliberate slow, deep breaths, and feel the tension begin to subside.

2. Clear your mind of disturbing thoughts. Remind yourself of all your strengths, of those occasions when you’ve coped in the past, and of things you still have to look forward to.

3. Shut off the critical parent in your head. We all have weaknesses and make mistakes. Don’t abandon, attack, or reject yourself. You need to support, and to nurture, yourself.

4. Practice self-care. Temporarily step back from the stressful situation. Maybe listen to some music, or message a friend, or play with your pet, or go for a walk.

5. Respond – don’t react. You don’t have to do anything right now. Take a moment to take control of your feelings and your thoughts. Then assess the situations, and think through different options.

6. You may have to put up protective boundaries. We often don’t have the energy to give at these times – so withdraw from people who would drain your energy.

7. A burden shared is a burden halved. Share how you feel with someone who cares. It’s good to ask for help when you’re worried or afraid.

I have a problem in vision. When I see on white objects or shiny objects. A black spot appears before my left eye. When I rotate my eye that spot moves along with the eye. Even if I see at sky, I would see that black spot in front of my eye. Which rotates along with my eye. It disturbs me mostly during studies as a black spot appears on the pages, that diverts my attention.

Hello lybrate-user good morning 1. That black spot is floater 2. Floaters are due to vitreous (gel in eye) liquifaction. Which is natural phenomenon 3. This floater will not affect your vision 4. There is no cure/treatment for floater 5. One solution is to avoid it. Try to avoid it. Keep doing your work. After few days. Your brain will start neglecting it. Avoid it and concentrate on your studies. I hope this will help you.

What are some symptoms of depression? Are anti depressant pills have some bad effect in our health?

What are some symptoms of depression? Are anti depressant pills have some bad effect in our health?
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, symptoms of depression may include the following: • Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions • Fatigue and decreased energy • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness • Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism • Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping • Irritability, restlessness • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, includingsex • Overeating or appetite loss • Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings • Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts Almost all psychotropic drugs have side effects and you cannot help that. But if you maintain a healthy lifestyle these effects can always be minimized. Also if you go episode-free for at least three years on medication, the doctor will gradually wean you off of the medication forever.

Start counting the achievements in life and feel happy about it. You have made a worthwhile contribution and now is the time to sit back and relax. If possible, try to reach out to those who are less better off than you. Try to give them what they need most- maybe just a few caring words---see the smile on their face brought on by your words,--you will feel elated!

Getting Over Anxiety With Homeopathy

Homeopath, Amravati
Getting Over Anxiety With Homeopathy

It is normal to feel nervous before an interview or be anxious about certain things, but letting that fear take over your life is not normal. If your worries and stress interfere with day-to-day life, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Fear not, this is treatable with homeopathy. 

Here are a few homeopathic remedies to help calm an anxious person:

  1. Kali Phosphoricum: Kali Phosphoricum is potassium phosphate that helps calm people when overwhelmed by anxiety attacks. This is suitable for people who are easily stressed, over sensitive, insecure, irritable and despondent. It also helps deal with the after effects of grief and fright. Physical ailments such as fatigue, dullness and lack of energy that are a result of anxiety can also be treated with this biochemic salt. 
  2. Aconite Napellus: Aconite Napellus is made from a purple flowering plant by the same name. It has a number of uses, primary among which is to control anxiety. This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for sudden, intense anxiety attacks and for post traumatic anxiety. It also helps deal with after effects of anxiety such as memory weakness, restlessness, oversensitivity and spells of rage. 
  3. Argentum Nitricum: Argentum Nitricum is also known as nitrate of silver. This is helpful in cases where anxiety makes a person insecure and unsure of what to do. When you're anxious, you are likely to crave for something sweet and feel very hot. Both these are cyclic symptoms of anxiety, and can worsen the situation, if not dealt with. However, Argentum Nitricum helps calm the digestive effects of sugar and cool the body to keep anxiety levels in check. 
  4. Arsenicum Album: Arsenicum Album is a constitutional remedy that can treat both chronic and acute problems. This works well on people who are worried about safety and security. If issues like health, money and break-ins are the cause of your anxiety, this homeopathic remedy is ideal for you. It also helps deal with restlessness. 
  5. Calcarea Carbonica: This is a homeopathic remedy made from the middle layer of sea shells that has a number of applications. When it comes to anxiety, Calcarea Carbonica is well suited for people who are scared of change and over controlling. This anxiety is accompanied by excessive sweating due to any exertion and stubbornness. Such people are also often afraid of animals and of the dark and get easily confused. One of the biggest advantages of homeopathy over allopathic treatment is the absence of side effects when taken in low doses. 

However, even homeopathic medication can have side effects when taken in high doses. Therefore, it is a good idea to consult a doctor before self medicating.

There are methods by which you can gain centimeters of height. 1. Follow these exercises regularly and you get the goal of height gain: * first stand straight bare foot on floor, then raise your arms upwards then raise your heels of foot with breathing in, try to stand on heels for 10-12 seconds and slowly lower down your heels back on the floor and breath out the air. Repeat this exercise 5-8 times in morning. *sit on the floor, stretch you legs together so that both foot touch each other. Now raise your arms upwards together with back straight, now move your hands towards toes of feet and touch them. Your forehead touching your knees. Slowly revert back the arms and move back arms in normal position. Repeat this exercise 2-4 times daily. * first stand barefoot on flat surface, now move your heels upwards and raise your arms up. Start walk on the front part of feet with heels upwards. Walk At Least 8-10 steps. Repeat this exercise for 2-3 times in a day. 2. Take 300 ml of rich cream milk, 200 gm of cheese and 2-3 eggs regularly. It will definitely give boost to your bone growth. 3. Sit in sun rays for at least 8-10 minutes in morning of evenings when the sun rays are not so strong. It will help you by getting adequate quantity of vitamin-d. 4. The growth and height is controlled by growth hormone which is secreted by pituitary gland situated in the brain. So take meditation and have a stress free lifestyle. Take 6-8 hours of sleep daily. Meditation makes your pituitary gland healthy and working properly. 5. You can also adopt the surgical techniques which helps you gaining desired height. 6. You can take 1/2 teaspoon of dhatupaushtik churna of baidyanath daily with milk once a day.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Masters in psychology counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues.

DNB (PSYCHIATRY), DPM, MBBS,
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Feeling low or depressed which affects your personal, social and occupational life and continues for more than 2 weeks may be clinical depression. It needs adequate evaluation by a qualified psychiatrist and treatment. For mild to moderate cases, psychotherapy may be adequate but in most cases, antidepressant medicines are safe and effective.

Hello and thanks for your query let me tell you that depression is not synonymous to day to day stress with which we deal. It is a diagnosis which needs to fulfil certain criteria to be labelled as major depressive disorder. Its symptoms are sadness of mood, loss of interest in routine activities, decreased or increased sleep/appetite, fatigue, guilt, suicidal thoughts. Depending upon the severity of depressive disorder, certain medications along with psychotherapy and relaxation exercises can help. I advise you to consult a psychiatrist for proper diagnosis and management. Hope it helps. Regards Dr. Gourav monga consultant psychiatrist.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

My son he is 13 year old had speaking disorder stammering how to solve this disorder.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Anamika, 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. One. Vocal chord misalignment. Two. 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, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.
