Sir my mind is controlling me not I am. I got angry on my family member I do not know what to do I want to relax my give some exercise or any activity from which I can get control over my mind.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

hi, Anger management concerns recognising the triggers for anger as early as possible and expressing these feelings and frustrations in a cool, calm and collected way. Do regular physical exercise anything like brisk walk, gym, jogging When you exercise regularly your body learns how to regulate your adrenaline and cortisol levels more effectively. People who are physically fit have more optimum levels of endorphins; endorphins are hormones that make you feel good and therefore less likely to feel angry. Breathe slow and Relax: When you start to feel tense and angry, try to isolate yourself for 15 minutes and concentrate on relaxing and calm, steady breathing: Inhale and exhale deeply 3 or 4 times in a row. Count slowly to four as you inhale. Count slowly to eight as you exhale. Focus on feeling the air move in and out of your lungs. Concentrate and feel your ribs slowly rise and fall as you repeat the exercise. Stop and revert to normal breathing if you start to feel dizzy at any time. try this and for any more questions revert to me all the best :) you will get better

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 4 drops of chestnut bud + 4 drops of scleranthus + 4 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of mimulus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every night once before sleeping.

Quit Smoking

Dentist, Mumbai

Remember tobacco companies KILL their best customers.. so quit today for a better tomorrow.

I am a college student. I have recently developed an urge for smoking. I smoke 4 cigarettes a day. But the fact is I still have control over myself and I want to discontinue it. Little bit of guidance and suggestion would surely benefit me to quit smoking now as I believe in the latter stages it's might turn into dire consequences if I keep smoking. Please help.

Homeopath, Ludhiana
I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1Tishya,this Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking . 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I suggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. Myself is a homoeopathic doctor and I can also suggest you medcines which can help you quitting this habit but I think you have that guts to quit this habit on your own and if you still feels like to start a medicine then consult me.

Hi lybrate-user, what you are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, stress which ensues after a trauma in your case accident.

Psychotherapy helps a lot in depression. You should strengthen your mind to get out from this situation and also to get rid off medication. Do meditation daily for mental strength. Taking stress will not solve your problem, but will affect your health. Take homeopathic medicine brynoia 30, 4 dose daily and kali phos 6x, 4 pills 4 times daily.

Control your Anxiety:

Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).
These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.
Examples of anxiety disorders include social anxiety disorder (social phobia), specific phobias and separation anxiety disorder. A person can have more than one anxiety disorder.
Sometimes anxiety results from a medical condition that needs treatment.
Acupuncture Treatment for Anxiety:
The realities of treating anxiety are that different people require different treatments, even when suffering from the same type of anxiety. That's because different people have different personalities, different needs, and of course, different symptoms. That's why to get a personalized treatment and depending on root cause Acupuncture will give long lasting results,

Dear lybrate user...As per your details you are on prothiaden which is the class of antidepressant usually prescribed in depression when anxiety symptoms are significant, so I assume that along with the depressive illness you also have significant anxiety since the beginning of illness. Now again the anxiety features what you have stated as fear are increasing. Assuming that you have depression since a while which has been taken care of with prothiaden and fluoxetine, my suggestion would be to increase the dose of fluoxetine as its dose can be optimised till 60mg in depression. But still I would suggest you for a detailed interview before taking any step. Take care

Dear lybrate-user, When you have a break up and the person you loved gets married, a vacuum and emptiness gets created in your life. Time will heal it. This is a time to rediscover yourself and look at your life from a new perspective. It is not easy but suffering helps you become stronger and happier if you deal with it productively. Take care.

Lybrate user what ever you said is outer reaction to something hidden in your self. Need to touch the root cause of it then easy to work in outer reaction. Try to go out in open air. Go for walks do excersise, listen music if you like it. Stop being negative all the time. Life is very precious. Please don't think so much.

5 Things to Know about Chronic Pain

5 Things to Know about Chronic Pain

Aside from the obvious problem with chronic pain - there are many other downsides to chronic pain that are important to know about. For those living with and enduring chronic pain, pass this along to your loved ones to help them understand and be supportive.

1. Pain is rarely 'all in your head'
People in pain are often treated as if their pain is actually made up or greatly exaggerated. While it is true that pain is subjective (people simply perceive pain differently) and some people may report pain because they have other agendas - for the vast majority, the pain is real and present. It is not made up. The problem is that chronic pain is often caused by types of anatomical problems that are difficult or impossible to diagnose using standard medical tests, and pain cannot be diagnosed like other medical problems (such as a broken bone that can be seen on an X-ray).

Fortunately, most in the medical community are now trying to understand and appreciate that chronic pain is real and needs to be treated and managed differently.

2. Pain is not the only problem - it breeds other health problems
Thoughts and emotions related to the pain also can come into play and aggravate or alleviate the pain. For example,depression, which is a serious disease, can worsen the pain. Sleep problems again caused by the pain, can also make the pain worse. And increased pain usually leads to increased sleep problems.

Often all conditions related to the pain need to be treated concurrently in order for the patient to get any relief.

3. Pain is deeply personal
Everyone experiences and expresses pain differently. Any two people with the exact same health condition are likely to feel and express their pain in unique ways depending on a number of factors. Newer chronic pain theories now have physiological explanations for how and why people experience pain differently.

When it comes to back pain, this is especially true. Two people can have the same type of herniated disc, but one feels only slight discomfort and the other feels intense, burning pain that is unresponsive to conventional treatment. It is also not uncommon that no anatomical cause of the pain can be detected.

Why is this point important? It means that chronic pain often needs to be treated as the primary problem, which is different than the conventional medical approach of identifying and treating the underlying problem causing the pain.

4. Chronic pain is its own beast
Unlike acute pain, which functions as a warning signal (e.g. I just stepped on a nail - better move my foot!), chronic pain does not have any useful function. It just is.

Often, chronic pain is caused by nerves that continue to send pain signals to the brain. When dealing with chronic pain, often one of the most frustrating things is that there is nothing to 'fix'. It just exists in your body.

5. Chronic pain is LONELY
After awhile, many people with chronic pain - especially pain that is caused by a condition that cannot be seen - begin to feel isolated. Here the Internet has done a world of good helping people in pain connect with others in similar situations and find a supportive peer group through online communities of people in similar situations.

Having a clearer understanding of how chronic pain works, as well as the central role that the mind plays in the experience of chronic pain, is becoming more mainstream in the medical community. Patients who start to gain more understanding of their own chronic pain may also benefit in terms of gaining increased emotional support, more effective and sustainable pain management, and even possibly harnessing the power of their minds to assist in coping with the pain.

Hey Dr. My memory become week what should do. Whatever I studied in past I have forgot. If work yesterday today become clean many thing. If am too confuse from this. Plc help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, 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. 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. 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.

Continuing smoking in spite of knowing its harms and side effects is a sign of nicotine dependence. You need a thorough evaluation of the withdrawal symptoms that you get on decreasing or stopping smoking. According to that we can plan a deaddiction program for you.

Dear user. Homosexual means men having sexual relationship with men. Homo sexual people are of two types. First type of people will have only sex with male and they can't have sex with female because they are not interested. Second type are those who can have sex with male and female. Straight male is not homosexual Take care.
