Stress - Special diet for stress.

STRESS -BUSTING FOODS

Stressful events cause our cortisol levels to rise.cortisol causes food cravings, and in women, those cravings tend to be strongest for carbs, especially sweet according to research.

Stress and nutrition have always been linked- it's a fact. Someone with a healthy and balanced diet is likely to be far less than those someone with a poor diet.

Healthy, nutritious food and breathing exercise are the simplest methods for relieving stress.

Food with high vitamin and minerals actively help to reduce stress levels.

Food and drinks that can trigger and aggravates stress includes.

*Tea, coffee, coca, energy drinks.
* Fast foods and takeways.
* Butter cheese.
* Meat and shellfish.
* Sugar, alcohol, soda, soft drinks, chocolate drinks.
* Beverages like soft drinks which contain no vitamins and minerals.

STRESS - Busting food how they work:

1.Bowl of oatmeal boost levels of serotonine a calming brain chemical.

2.Complex carbs- All carbs prompt the brain to make more serotonine. whole grain bread, pasta, cereals, oatmeal.

3.Spinach- Too little magnesium may trigger a headache and fatigue compounding the effect of stress.other green leafy vegetables, cooked soybeans, fillet of salmon also high in magnesium.

4.Fish- omega 3 fatty acid found in fish such as salmon and tuna can prevent surges in stress hormone and may help to protect against heart disease, depression, and PMS.

5.Black tea- Drinking black tea may help you help recover from stressful events more quickly than tea drinkers.

6.Avocados- one of the best ways to reduce high blood pressure is to get enough potassium, and half an avocado has more potassium than a medium-sized banana.

7.Almonds- vitamins E to bolster the immune system, plus B vitamins, which may make you more resilient during bouts of stress or depression.

8.Raw veggie- crunchy raw vegetables can help ease stress in a purely mechanical way. Munching celery or carrot sticks help release a clenched jaw that can ward off tension.

10. Milk- another bedtime stress buster is the time-honored glass of warm milk. Research shows that calcium eases anxiety and mood swings linked to PMS. ADIVCE TO TAKE LOW FAT AND SKIM MILK.

My wife is suffering from Bipolar disorder. She had had an episode of Mania in August after which this condition was diagnosed. Doctor had prescribed Divalpro 750 mg as maintenance drug which was later reduced to 500 mg as she was experiencing dizziness. She is facing weight gain and hair fall which is probably the side effects of this. Can we have some other alternatives to this to avoid these side effects?

8 Warning Signs for Silent Domestic Abuse Victims

B.A.(H)Psychology, M.A.Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Noida
8 Warning Signs for Silent Domestic Abuse Victims

As much as we would like to ignore it, domestic abuse is a very common problem. Not every woman has the strength to fight against it and confide in someone. As a friend, it is your duty to look out for them. You don’t have to be an expert in psychology to know the warning signs of domestic violence. Here are 8 such warning signs.

  1. She is quiet when he is around: If your friend is normally jovial and suddenly becomes quiet the moment her partner is around, don’t overlook the change. She may be scared of saying something that might upset him and start a fight.
  2. She allows herself to be put down: In almost all cases of domestic violence, the woman is made to feel guilty about everything. This becomes habit and she loses her will to fight back. If you notice you’re friend allowing her partner to walk over her and put her down, she may be facing abuse at home.
  3. She withdraws from friends and family: Social withdrawal is another major sign of domestic violence. There may be a number of reasons for this; he is too possessive of her, she is injured and scared of letting people see her injuries etc.
  4. Unexplained injuries: Making an excuse that walking into a door caused a black eye isn’t only a scene from the movies. If your friend suddenly starts wearing inappropriate clothes such as long sleeved tops in summer, she may be a victim of domestic abuse. Look out for such excuses and injuries.
  5. Plans that are frequently cancelled at the last moment: Victims of domestic abuse often make plans, but never keep them. This could be because their partner does not like them going out without them or because she is injured and doesn’t want you to see her injuries.
  6. She has casually mentioned violent behavior, but dismissed it lightly: Casually mentioning violent behavior at home could be your friend’s way of trying to tell you that something is wrong. We fear being judged and hence it is sometimes very difficult to speak openly about facing domestic abuse. If you feel a friend is being domestically abused, encourage her to share her problems with you.
  7. Her finances and personal choices are not controlled by her: Domestic abuse victims usually have most of their lives controlled by their partners. This includes finances, choice of clothing, social attendance etc.
  8. The children seem nervous and frequently upset: Children may not say much, but notice a lot. Even if they are not abused, seeing their mother hurt can affect a child and make them moody, withdrawn and upset.

It's good that you acknowledge the fact that you are unable to control use of your mobile. This usually happens when you start feeling a" vaccum" when you are away from your mobile, a feeling that" you are disconnected from" the world. This feeling itself is false. I may need a complete daily schedule of mobile use as to how much time you talk, you message, you use fb, what's app, games etc. Let me also know the symptoms you face when you try to be away from your mobile? you need a behavior therapy along with some anxiolytics to keep your urge under control.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Hai I'm 21 years old I'm smoking 4- 6 cigarettes daily but I feel that I can't do any heavy work like running and gym workouts will you please give solution to quite smoking.

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
Recommended - proper treatment is essential for this problem Homeopathic treatment is best, safe and effective for this Problem, - Caladium - 200 Morning before meal, Tabacaum - 200 afternoon before meal. Then let me know the results after 15 days through private chat on Lybrate. Reasons why people start to use tobacco: -On a dare to show that you are not timid or afraid. -To fit with the crowd (all my friends do it) -To appear sophisticated or cool -To be grown-up -To assert your independence -As a sign of protest, rebellion, or to defy authority -Free samples from friends or advertisers -Influences from people you respect and admire -Parents or relatives smoked -Images of famous actors, movie stars, or role models -Famous sports players who use chewing tobacco or smoking cigarettes. -Famous scientists (Einstein is the prototype of intellectual smokers. -He looks so proud with a pipe in his mouth.) -Portrayals by cigarette advertisements -To calm your nerves -As a kind of “air freshener” when using the toilet -Adverse effects of Smoking. -Heart disease. Smoking is responsible for 30 percent of all heart attacks and cardiovascular deaths. -Cancer. It is responsible for 30 percent of all cancer deaths and 87 percent of lung cancer deaths each year. -Lung problems. Smoking is responsible for 82 percent of deaths due to emphysema and chronic bronchitis. -Smoking delays healing of peptic ulcers of the stomach and duodenum. - Its effects on blood vessels cause chronic pains in the legs (claudication) which can progress to gangrene and amputations of the toes or feet. -Causes wrinkling of the skin of the face to develop earlier in chronic smokers. On average they look 5 years older than non-smokers of the same age do. -It impairs erections in middle-aged and older men and may affect the quality of their sperm. It seems to “sedate” sperm and to impair their motility. This is reversed after stopping smoking. -Smoking accelerates the rate of osteoporosis, a disease which causes bones to weaken and fracture more easily.

One of my family member is addicted with smoking and is unable to relax. How can he quit smoking?

Psychologist, Pune
Hi does the family member really want to quit smoking? you can start with opd treatment he will be prescribed with some medication which help him to relax also counseling will prove effective but for that to happen he has to stop now. As a well wisher you can give him positve support give him positive strokes tell him you r there for him and will help him come out of this habbit. Whenever he gets the urge to smoke he shud call you talk to him tell him to drink lots of water brisk walking will help. Take it each day as it comes indulge in some activity which will keep his mind busy. Pursue hobbies.

Talking to your wife about this is the only solution. No couple is perfect. There will be some qualities in your wife that you like- highlight them more - appreciate whatever you like in what she does. Most of the times problems in relationships arise due to miscommunication, over expectations and lack of trust. Spend more time with your wife and child and try to find out her likes and dislikes. Avoid discussing your problem with family members because that gives a signal to your spouse that you don't trust and love her - and this increases your problems.

Our is a love marriage and we have a healthy relationship for past 12 years. But for the past few months there has been some problems in our relationship that is what I feel. My wife had taken a break from her work for the last 3 years and now she has again started working and is very ambitious about her career. I too am supportive for the same. Currently she is away for 3 months for a training and whenever we meet we spend good time throughout the day but have arguments or fights on any small thing. I am unable to understand that whether she is into relationship with some other person. As we have also spoken on this too as she has a friend who is overseas and he keeps on calling her and they speak to each other for hours that is what I have found out. When I have discussed with her she says that he is just a very good friend of her. I do not know how to tackle this situation or is that I am doubting on her. I do not want to lose her and also do not want our relationship to get affected. Please advice.

Dear friend, you sound stressed and very concerned. As you are happily married for 12 years now I am sure you have understood that love is not just a feeling, it's a verb - an action word. This is the time in your relationship that you really love her and show your love towards her in your actions. I am sure you have that in you and you would be able to focus on it once you are clear about what needs to be done. When we are stressed doubtful or ambiguous it shows in our tone our body language and in our energy. So first of all change the energy within you. Replace what you have with love care and understanding. She has started working after 3 years break and also she us away. This might be a stressful time for her. She might have one or other kind of fear about how will you respond if she talks with you about her struggles. That could be the reason for her to turn to a friend for guidance and support. Or there could be any such reason for her current behavior. When you two are togather next time, tell her genuinely that yiu really want to understand how she feels and what are her struggles. You want to be there for her in her time of need. And listen deeply to what she says. And when you listen deeply there is no judgement there is no right or wrong. Just understanding thing as it is. Ask her how could you support her. What she needs from you? she may want to hear that everything will be okay. Even the strong individual's needs to listen this sometimes. In nut she'll be there for her and love her. If you would like to discuss specific situation and your response to it and if yiu are open for online consultation feel free to contact me. My ph. D. Is in marriage and relationship counselling and it's my passion. Hope this helps wishing you very best.
