It appears that your wife is suffering from schizophrenia not depression. The medicines can have side effects that can cause giddiness and falls. So kindly get back to your doctor and get the dose adjusted. The might be other reasons for falls. Needs evaluation by a doctor.

Decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Distractions like mobile phones, computers can also cause decreased concentration. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, all these will improve concentration.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mustard + 3 drops of gentian + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of scleranthus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose. On empty stomach.

Hi, Same-sex attraction is an intense interest in others of the same sex. This interest may include desires for their attention, friendship, intimacy, or a fascination with their bodies and other gender traits. It may also include erotic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors directed toward the same sex. The term homosexuality refers to the entire range of issues that includes attractions, feelings, desires, sexual behavior, identity, and all its associated aspects, such as gender identity, self-perception, emotional dependencies, and relationship issues. Same-sex attractions develop over time and almost always without any conscious choice. At some point in your life, you may have realized that you were sexually attracted to other men.* These inner attractions can become intense and compelling sexual thoughts toward other men and may consume a great deal of your thoughts and energy. If the sexual attractions are not understood and addressed, they can grow into obsessions that interfere with your ability to function at work and at home, and can be destructive spiritually. Same-sex attractions are often more compelling than attractions toward the opposite sex because they may be symptomatic of more than sexual desires—they may be attempts to fill unmet emotional and social needs. Same-sex attractions can be strong if you entertain sexual fantasies. Because of the intensity of these sexual desires, you may have participated in sexual activities to fill the void you feel. The satisfaction of the sexual activity causes further confusion, leading you to believe that your needs are sexual rather than emotional. In a desperate attempt to satisfy these building tensions, you may have become involved in sexual activities that provide a temporary gratification of the sex drive, but leave you with deeper feelings of emptiness, loneliness and frustration. Rather than satisfying the real needs for acceptance and companionship, the sexual behavior only intensifies the needs. One of the greatest tragedies of same-sex attraction is the unawareness in most men that their needs are emotional. All they know is that they are sexually attracted to other men and they seek sexual contacts, which ironically do not fill their need for love from a friend. It is completely fine if you are fine with what you think, how you feel. You have a right to live your life your way. Revert to me in case of any queries.

I am a student. 18 years old. I am smoking since last 4 months. But I want to quit smoking. Please help me!

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User, You may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture DAPHNE INDICA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

My brother is not concentrating in his studies he can't learn long answers. What he want to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He may be going through the onset of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which will cause a lot of distractions. Even so he can continue some stretching and light weight training to guide the energy to desirable directions. During this time the body will grow faster than usual. This spurt in growth will take away all the energy and make him feel exhausted. If not he may not be interested in his study course for various reasons in which case I recommend that he does an aptitude course and seek career guidance and opt for a course that is close to his heart and natural talents. Also at this age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting his ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time he could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: he will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, he will become sexually active, and he will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact his memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But he may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if he goes to a gym, let him ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else he is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that the 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. He needs to check out if he is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if he combines the two modes, he will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When he gets bored, study by writing. If he repeats learning at least five to seven times, he will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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 his left nostril and breathe, move his 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that his teacher will be able to guide him with. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect his memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

Dear Rishab, Welcome to lybrate. Smoking addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hello doctor. I have been married since 5 years. I like my husband very much n he likes me. But we have till date not consummated. He avoids me always since the day of our marriage. I feel too depressed n avoided. He tells he likes me but never accept me n not tell me the reason also. Please help me wat should I do.

Consummation of marriage is an essential and integral part of completion of marital agreement. Avoiding sexual contact with a married partner may have several implications and reasons thereof. This may start with a partner specific reason to altered sexual preferences too. A 5 year marriage is too long a time to consider anticipatory fear and anxiety as a reason to avoid sex. It is always worthwhile to report such a thing to your doctor, discuss the problems with a sexual counsellor, psychiatrist if needed, to sort out the issues completely.

Yaa can understand your feelings of pain. Don't worry. Addiction is a disease which is controllable. Due to addiction lots of health issues can create. Whatever you explained that calls the symptoms of the disease. You can take help from psychiatrist to deal with the withdrawals or U can get admission in rehab center / deaddiction center if you want for 1 month which helps you to understand the disease & how to cope with it. If you have any questions you can ask me through private question. Thank you, don't worry Best luck.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

This type of forgetfulness is not normal and is definitely stress induced. It is referred to as discounting: which is really a loss of awareness though we wrongly describe it as forgetting, for want of a better word. You are discounting almost like that of an aged person. You need to identify the stress and do some work with a counselor to sort it out. You may be aware of the stress but have not done anything substantial to deal with it and so the extent of discounting. It has to do with an emotion, normally. Are you sad, scared, or angry, and are you not expressing the same? There are other reasons for discounting but I will not go into that to avoid confusing you. If you are not able to relate to he emotional factor, let me know and we can explore the other contributing factors.

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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40

Dear , miscarriage is not your fault. Your husband should understand that. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. You are disappointed because of the twin troubles you are facing. I suggest online psychological counseling sessions. Contact me. Take care.
