For becoming a famous singer, avoid foods which are not too salty, oily, pungent or bitter. Best and safest food for singing is strict vegetarian diet and to take fruits in day time and cow's milk in night time about three hours after dinner.

Dear , relax! I understand how you must be feeling. I understand its difficult to trust in such conditions. But your imagination will definitely will spoil things. Don't feel rejected or dejected or ditched or feeling of being fooled. Sometimes such affairs just happen. These are insignificant events of life. Take charge of your life. And stay happy try to behave normally, meet any counsellor face to face.

I think that you are having panic attacks with palpitations. You are overacting to the fear of rejection. This may have come from actually being rejected at sometime early in your life, and as well as too much authority exercised over you at home. There is normal fear for everyone about public speaking and some to interviews. But to have this level of reaction is because of poor self-image and self-esteem. One immediate thing you can do is to place your index finger on your closed lips and blow into your cheeks to build back pressure into your throat. You are to hold this for 10 seconds and within that time your heart will slow down to a lower level and make you calm immediately. You can repeat this every time you experience these panic attacks. It will help tremendously to meet with a counselor and deal with all your fears and reactions to that emotion with healthy responses. In the meantime please 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.

My son is 9 year old he is studying in class v but his mind is not concentrate on his study els e mind if diverted to other things as playing go to park and he also forget his things in school. These type of prob. What is the solution for this please suggest.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He may be hyper active and will have a mind that has a very short attention span. He will do well, if he is allowed to play a lot and tire himself out. After he is exhausted, strangely, he will concentrate better with his studies. Also you can reduce high-energy foods that feed the high levels of energy he already has. Make a list of to-do things on a daily basis and have him read it every three or four hours to check against the list whether he has done all the things he is supposed to do. Keep a periodic watch on this to see if he is still unable to track his things and activities. You must spend more time with him also because all this behavior may be his way of grabbing your attention. Why let him choose an unhealthy way when he can be shown love and affection abundantly just as a matter of course! one more thing to be aware of: there is too much pressure by parents, schools, and the society on academic pursuits and less on overall development. They lose their childhood and may never regain it ever later. Such children end up depressed and badly adjusted personalities. Find a suitable balance between play and study and he will respond much better. He may be rebelling against the imbalance, innocuously.

What are the side effects of antidepressant? what is alternative therapy for anxiety disorder?
Hello sir, which antidepressant are you currently taking? as such every antidepressant will have its own specific side effects but in general antidepressants prescribed for anxiety disorders belong to category of ssri. They all have common side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, worsening anxiety, reduced sleep etc. Which occur only for first 1-2 weeks. After which body starts adapting & these problems disappear. Alternate therapy for anxiety disorder depends on the type of disorder you are suffering. You can get back to me for further help. Good luck.

How can I get rid of stress, strain and pressure that had been repeatedly creating a problem for my mind.

How can I get rid of stress, strain and pressure that had been repeatedly creating a problem for my mind.
Dear Samboj, Welcome to lybrate. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

My grand mother is suffering from Parkinson but the bigger problem is that she gets fainted when she walks or sits. Is there any thing by which she can walk properly or even sit properly. Her age is about 75 years. She has problem of even getting up from bed.

FRACP, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Ludhiana
She probably has postural hypotension. Bp has to be checked in lying and standing position. If it drops by more than 20 mm then she will need medications. Alternatively she may be having multisystem atropy or drug induced bp fall on standing.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Sometimes I am Short tempered when my beloved do some wrong and makes some bad behaviour and gets angry without logically, and sometimes I understand that she doesn't understand my feelings whenever she makes me angry again and again. I get a lot anger that time and wish to go an end. Please suggest me what must I do?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
You definitely seem to have anger management issues. Let me first assure you that nobody around you is the cause for your distress. It is your belief system that judges every kind of outside behaviour irrationally so that you ending up in a problem. This is definitely not to blame you. Once you learn to deal with/ manage to rearrange your belief system to think rationally your negative emotions certainly won't remain harmful to you at all. I understand that this seems a bit complicated to you. But some sessions of ret with behaviour therapy would certainly help you come out of this. Consult a ret therapist or a psychiatrist for counseling and therapy.

What is effects in body by smoking Then how to effect and which disease are created.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Masters in psychology counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear Lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to know about smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help by in-person or audio/video.

Anxiety and stomach flatulence ,hard breathing most of the times,alcohol and smoking in evenings .

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
It looks like you might be suffering from anxiety disorder that would explain the stomach problems ( ibs) and difficulty in breathing. May be that is why you need alcohol to calm your self. However you need to describe your shortness of breath in detail, as it could suggest some serious heart condition because of your drinking habit.

Hello, I'M studying in engineering 2nd year. Since from my childhood I am not people person. I don't talk to anyone much. I'm mostly alone all time living in my dreams. I am passionate about science till my SSC. Upto SSC I have a feeling that I'm the most talented and always felt like king. During intermediate I was in hostel .there I did not adjust first. I was hyper active that time I thought I was special and talked to everyone. While talking I talked nonsense too. Many thought I was stupid, as I was in top section many thought I was topper .then I met a person who was silent and decent we because frnds .I saw how people respected him and how I was treated. So I also wanted to be like him and because silent. Which failed my confidence. So I thought when I leave this campus and go to another CLG I will be like him .my studies too fell I felt alone, depressed. Some how I completed my intermediate with 96%. I went to hyd for EAMCET coaching. I was there in my aunt's house. Got a seat in Mohan babu CLG in Tirupati. I took cse, because I thought I can talk well and I have interest in coding. But when l in CLG I did not made any frnds. I was very egotic for 2 weeks then I realized I need frnds but they were habituated to CLG so I thought what if I create a situation that I have made frnds correctly, this is my stupidity I know some where in me telling this is wrong, I locked myself in my hostel room and started thinking that. I know there is much world which I should know days passed I didn't changed I not even talked to many if they will know I did not group so I acted Daily thinking of my past. Small things became big to me .I don't know what I am doing. Its like if I slept for 2 years and just woke up. Condition became worse I forgot myself I was not talking to anyone that they will know I did not group to things. Many boys became friends with girls some fell in love .(In school I was talking well with girls in fact I used to talk mostly with them. I thought playing outside was nonsense so I only watched TV. During school days ,and also my parents made me to study all Time. My dad didn't have a job my mom is a school teacher. My dad did not want smaller jobs to do so he did not do any .they were fighting all time because of that I full of ego .)now I don't know what to do all got frnds I am single. All came to I am stupid. So tell how to get out of this.

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.
