I have been consuming alcohol from last 35 years and when it gets over its limit I keep on drinking continuously for 3-4 days until my stomach starts paining. I have been hospitalized 2-3 times before due to this drinking problem causing severe pain in stomach and I am not addicted to this but wants to quit. Can I take disulfram drug.

Doctor, I am a smoker I want to know amount of tar in my lungs, I am smoking from last 4 years daily 3 cigarettes. Now a days m feeling weak. I want to know what test are recommended. Is chest xray enough for it?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Chest x ray will just show the superficial extent of damage. For knowing the functional capacity of your lungs, get a pulmonary function test done, it a test done wherein you will be asked to blow inside a machine in various ways, so that your lung capacity can be plotted. Stop smoking immediately, all the best. For lung damage consult a pulmonologist, for smoking cessation if you are not able to do on your own, consult a psychiatrist.

How would quitting tobacco now help,if I have been a life long consumer of it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Quitting tobacco at any time is good because you can reverse most of the damage it has done to your body and brain. Continuing the smoking can only hasten disease or death. If you have been healthy in spite of smoking, you are still at risk because the effects may be silently developing. Smoking is bad, period. It is harmful to you, your family, and to the public through side stream smoke and secondhand smoke. Come on, don’t get stuck at debating reasons, just do it and save a lot of medical expenses and suffering to so many affected. The fact that you are asking this question itself gives me the impression that you are contemplating quitting. That is the best for prognosis. I recommend you read my book on addictions to understand more and know recovery strategies. On the receipt of Rs. 250/-, I can send you a copy, postage free.

It s not depression, seems drugs are for schizophrenia, a major psychiatric illness, which has long term treatment. There are newer medications for the negative symptoms you say. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for the same.

Low cholesterol linked to anxiety, depression, suicide, hemorrhagic stroke and cancers

People with very low cholesterol levels are at increased risk of developing stomach cancer, according to a study published in the International Journal of Cancer.

The study involved 2,600 residents of Hisayama, Japan, who were followed for 14 years. Gastric cancers developed in 97 subjects. After accounting for age and gender, stomach cancer rates rose significantly with descending cholesterol level. For example, among subjects with the highest cholesterol levels, the gastric cancer rate was the equivalent of 2.1 cases per 1000 persons per year; among those with the lowest cholesterol, the rate was 3.9 per 1000 persons per year.

Patients with low serum cholesterol should consider periodic gastrointestinal examination for the prevention of stomach cancer.

Low cholesterol has been earlier linked to depression, anxiety and suicide in both men and women. Another earlier report has also shown that people with cholesterol level below 180 had twice the risk of brain hemorrhage as compared to those with cholesterol levels of 230.

I am from a decent family with good culture. I am in relation with a girl of 17 years from past 3 years. She used to cheat me and flirt with guys at the starting of relationship. I changed her and explained that it is not good. The problem is that whenever I see her with any guy talking or texting. I get the same feeling that she has started her old habit of flirting. I am so passive. I can't bear it. From this I can't concentrate on studies! feeling lonely always. She just want to enjoy her life with other guys more. She just escapes giving reasons that her mom is permitting and she is forcing to go with others. So please help me how to control myself and being sad and unsatisfying always. I just don't wanna be passive!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is good that she is social with other boys but not that she is flirting with them. If you think she has genuinely changed then you must learn to trust her. You see you cannot forever keep a tab on your girl and live a life of suspicion and insecurity. On the other hand there is a saying that a ‘leopard cannot change its spots’. If you want this girl, you must accept her the way she is, otherwise give her up. If you have to control and keep an eye on her, life can become very miserable, like it has already become for you. It may be in her culture or her mother’s culture to be playful and mix around freely but quite innocently. If you think that that could be risky behavior and that some boys will mistake her for a fast girl, then you could caution her and if she does not heed your advice, then she is going to be difficult to reason with. If you are brave or free enough why don’t you talk to her mother and find out the scenario and her take on the matter. She may give you an explanation that you or I may not understand or know about! The other problem is that there may be insecurities in you that may be the problem and as soon as you work that out, it could be a different scene altogether. Whatever happens you must be able to trust the girl; and if that is not there because of her or you, the relationship is not meant to be, period.

Sir I m B. Tech student. How to increase my memory? I am 25 years old. Please solve my problem or give me solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Healthy and balanced diet is important in reducing risk of memory loss. Green leafy vegetables reduce the risk of decline of memory with age. Good social relationships and interactions can help reduce risk of memory loss. Brain activity should be maintained. This can be regular reading, writing, learning a new skill, or instrument, doing crossword or puzzles etc. stimulates brain cells and lower risk of memory loss. For further queries get back to me.

Hi doctor, I am 56 year old I am suffering from anxiety and depression pl. Solve my problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hi doctor, I am 56 year old I am suffering from anxiety and depression pl. Solve my problem.
You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi sir, I am addicted to alcohol from past one year. I can not live without it at least for some days. suggest some remedy for that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Depending on how much you drink and how addicted you are to drinking, you may need to go for detoxification. This may be done either in a hospital or in a rehabilitation center itself. It is a way of clearing all the toxins related to the alcohol and this will make it easy for you to remove the physical craving. It will also help to deal with the withdrawal syndrome when abstaining from alcohol consumption. You will need the help of a therapist and a support group called the aa, alcoholics anonymous. They follow a very effective and time-tested 12 step program for the recovery. You will need to avoid all associations to drinking: friends, places, habits, companions, and times, for a short period until you get over the addictive drive. You may take liquid substitutes when the drinking urge is strongest as an oral stimulant. Examples of these would be: soups, buttermilk, juices, pepper water, tender coconut water etc. Start a completely new set of habits, behaviors, social circles, entertainment sources, and learn to be happy without the drink. There is a concept called script work, which is where the success of your recovery can have a lasting and effective impact. You must make some plans around salary time, and how to save money, and clear debts that you might have accumulated when you were drinking. Ideally, you should admit yourself to the rehabilitation center where all these things and more are done and practiced.

What if depression left untreated.Please tell

Psychiatrist,
Your quality of life will gradually decline and can develop many psychosomatic diseases like hypertension, diabetes etc etc. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

Is memory loss always a part of aging? how much loss is considered normal?

MD - Psychiatry, PDO, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Is memory loss always a part of aging? how much loss is considered normal?
Memory loss is no longer considered a normal part of ageing. An evaluation by a psychiatrist or neurologist would be advisable to quantify the memory loss, if any, and to ascertain if there are other related issues which may occur along with or contribute to diminishing memory. It is important that you seek an evaluation at the earliest, since a lot of conditions causing memory loss are reversible, if detected and treated in time.
