My friend is taking hukkah regularly is it harmful for him?

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Here, I am going ask a question about an illusion. I don't know it's true or not. My relative is working on govt job, he used to drink. He is about 48. From the last 4 days. He felt that there are some spirits or other things and those are talking about his household matters. And about other things. 4 days ago he felt the voice of those things in his ears. Next day at evening those were little bit visible to him. Then he realized that there were 10 or more things. And those were died years ago. Some about 4 other 5 years others 20 years ago. He never had it before. He was like they r gonna talking about his every thing and saying to kill him. Even when we called him on phone, he said those were listening us. Like if we said they r fake it's illusion. Those magical things replied it's true like that things. All people like our relatives were saying that it's black magic. Some people said that some spills hve been put on him. They said these type of things. We thought that maybe it's because of his drinking habit. But from last 5 days. He didn't touch whisky or other thing. Then he went to gurudwara and came home by chanting the name of some baani. He said he was listening the same chanted things when he used to stop chanting. Then last day. We went to a man suggested by people. He talked to dad on phone. And did some things. Then dad said those were starting going far. And today he didn't see anything Is it true that it's because of black magic?

Fear is a natural response to situational threats. If there is frequent response of fear without having any threats, then it is a symptom of mental illness which need to be treated by a Psychiatrist. Psychologist will help you to identify your fear related thoughts and to learn to distort these thoughts and implanting constructive positive thoughts. You will also learn to relax your mind

Hi. You seem to be carrying the burden of the past for too long. Mistakes happen and its very human to make mistakes. The lessons learnt from mistakes is the only thing to be carried along, rest all has to be let gone. You may not have got an outlet to vent out and let go. To be living in the present, you need to let go of the past and begin living your life in the present, in the here and now. Make a priority list of all the important things relevant to you today and lay down a path to walk on towards your goal/s. In order to do this, you will first have to make peace with your past. You can consult a counsellor to help you. All the best.

Dementia is a kind of progressive neuro dgenerative disorder occuring generally in older people. The chances of being affected by this condition are equal for both people with mental disorders and normal population due to various reasons. Early intervention, life style modification strategies, psycho education for the family members and social network of the affected person will help to lead a better life.

Dear lybrate-user, motivational enhancement therapy for 12 weeks is helpful. It is a weekly therapy - can be done by anyone who has specialised in addiction treatment. Many clinical psychologist, social workers, alternate medical specialists, general practitioners, counsellors are trained by nimhans for 1 month in house training or in weekly virtual classrooms. They are given certificates. You can approach anyone with such certification. Checking on breathanalyser gives only the 1-2 hours of alcohol use. Mainly helpful for police persons to find out drunken driving. There are other blood and liver tests (ggt, sgot and sgpt ratio) which give an indication of longer use. They are for legal, diagnostic and research purposes. As a daughter, why do you do that for your dad. You are not going to police him. You are going to help him come out of his addiction. Please play that role. Start with improving his liver function so that he can eat well and digest his food.

I am a 46 year old doctor having being diagnosed to have bipolar disorder. What do you suggest me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

Hello Doctor,
I am 28 yr, F.
How to get rid of anxiety and nervousness and be at peace naturally? Please guide me,
You have not been dealing with your fears for a long time, perhaps. All unexpressed feelings will find some other way of expressing itself in the body. These will lead to psychological problems of various kinds. You need to be trained in dealing with emotions and retain it as an ongoing process in life. Meet a counselor and get some guidance in this regard. In the meantime, please follow an exercise regiment, eat well and keep good company. Make your last meal, as far as possible, a pure carbohydrate meal. Eat early and make it a small meal too. Avoid all foods that cause flatulence. Sleep on your left ear most of the night. Every time you feel fear talk to someone about it. Do some deep breathing, with your left nostril shut, and you will immediately calm down. If it gets too much, place your index finger on your shut lips and puff up your cheeks tightly with air and hold it for some time. The back pressure of the air will press the vagus nerve at the rear of the throat and immediately reduce the heart rate to calm you down. If it is worse, please visit a counselor and if that person advises then meet with a psychiatrist too. If this is a recent phenomenon, you could just do all of the recommendations suggested below too. If the fear is more from childhood, you will need to work with a counselor. The counselor will help you see what are the things frightening you, and why now. Sometimes a recent event may have triggered what was lurking under the surface for a long time. That too must be identified and dealt with. In that case you may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Palpitation may be due to stress. Actually stress is the main cause of emergence of so many disease. Take sleep of at least 8 hours and do meditation daily for peaceful mind. Take homeopathic kali phos 6x, 4 tablet four times daily. Have a brisk walk daily in morning to burn extra calories, that help you in managing your diabetes also. For knee problem consult orthopedic. Take calcium rich diet.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

As you rightly said your interpersonal skills may be poor because of devoting too much time in your studies. But, it is no big deal. I think you are nearing completion of the studies you are pursuing now. No need to worry about anything except your studies. Concentrae at successful completion of your studies. Social and interpersonal skills can be developed afterwards.
