You can do meditation, it lets you meet with yourself & gives you inner peace. Understand yourself, try to rule out your problems. And write it down. Think of positive solution for each problem, change your attitude towards it and go for change within yourself. Sometimes, negative thoughts appear due to circumstances, hormonal changes and many other reasons. Its ok to have negative thoughts at times, just ignore it and involve yourself in something creative or productive work.

What precautions are taken to remove depression, how to develop self confidence to get good job?
Depression is just like any other illness. It cannot be removed once you are suffering from it. It has to be treated with medications and counselling. Do not label yourself as suffering from depression before consulting a psychiatrist. In order to prevent depression should develop healthier ways of dealing with daily stress and factors that may precipitate depression. For more queries or doubts consult online. Take care.

I don’t know if you are fully aware: you have mentioned that you are suffering from anxiety, which in itself can disturb your sleep. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i. E. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i. E. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night

I have been using pot of weed from past 3 years I want to get rid of that but it is very hard to do that is there any patron way to stop using.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Weed 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. Take care.

I'm 23 years old male. I'm unable to pronounce the letters r, re,RU, ir pls help me to find the solutions pls.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
One of the main reasons for difficulty to pronounce is fear and anxiety. Reduce your speed of speech for now, thus the pronouncing difficulty would decrease and fluency of your speech would become better. When fluency of speech reaches normal, then you gradually increase speed of speech, thus the overall speech can become as original. Because stress and anxiety increases difficulty of speech, you should also do transcendental meditation. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center. Hope this helps,

Symptoms of depression? And states how to cure it? When the symptoms are visible.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Symptoms of depression? And states how to cure it? When the symptoms are visible.
Symptoms of depression in women include: • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities, including sex. • Restlessness, irritability, or excessive crying. • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, pessimism. • Sleeping too much or too little, early-morning awakening. Depression in women differs from depression in men in several ways: • Depression in women may occur earlier, last longer, be more likely to reoccur, be more likely to be associated with stressful life events, and be more sensitive to seasonal changes • Women are more likely to experience guilty feelings and attempt suicide, although they actually commit suicide less often than men • Depression in women is more likely to be associated with anxiety disorders, especially panic and phobic symptoms, and eating disorders • Depressed women are less likely to abuse alcohol and other drugs • Symptoms of depression in MEN include: • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. • Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism. • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness. • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex. • Decreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down" If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

Hey I am 19 years 6months older Guy. Now recently I checked my height I am around 160cm and I am really want to grow ...
We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body. It is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed. .Homoeopathic medicines acts as a catalyst in increasing the production of these hormones. Increase in height at your age depends upon a no. of factors like 1.Heriditary factor 2.Recorded any increase in height in last 24 months 3.Amount of effort you are putting in for increase in height 4.How much serious are you for your height 5.Will you give 100% if I show you a direction 6.Just do your bit with full determination and leave the rest to time,exercises and medicines. Consult me Fast for Homoeopathic consultation as you short of time

I am a 25 years old female. I have a bad memory. Initially, I was only bad with names of people. I used to forget them easily. If I needed to remember the names, either I had to write the name down or keep on revising. But now I find myself forgetting words from my subject matters. I am not able to remember the meaning of a word I do not usually use. I know forgetting can be quit normal but this is something more than usual. Should I be concerned? Is this some problem?

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.

Sir I am having bipolar disorders mania and depression can I have problem in marriage life I mean in sex. I have not married.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No, you will not have a problem of the normal kind but you will have a vacillating nature to your sexual drive. During your manic phase you can have a heightened need and desire, and during the depressed phase, you can have a diminished need. Over a period of time, due to the effects of the medication, you could have a loss of sexual need. However, if you do exercise and keep yourself fit you could delay that effect and possibly can be weaned off of the medication if you had an episode-free three years. If you are concerned about it now, do visit a doctor for an examination for sexual functions.

It is quite natural in our country this sort of role transfer build up a conflict. You need to counsel your wife to adapt as the time changes and you can encourage your bahu to takeup the responsibility of the household and cousel her too. Hopefully acceptance is ultimate answer for such an issue.

Our brain generally begins to integrate what it receives with the previous information. Therefore, when we read long text at times we may deviate from the original content. 1. Stop reading the moment you realise that you are lost elsewhere. 2. Take a short break and start over. 3. Read aloud for sometime to regain focus.

BIOLOGICAL MARKERS FOR MENTAL ILLNESS
0 Comments / Jun 30, 2015

Psychiatry

Reliable indicators are of great help in the diagnosis of any disease. This fact assumes more importance in the diagnosis of mental illness because a clinician has to depend on interpretation of clues discernible from a patient’s behaviour, including emotional outbursts. Fortunately, researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine are reported to have identified, for the first time, a biological marker. Their study has been published in the journal EBioMedicine.



Researchers know that the XIST gene works overtime in female patients with mental illness. They also know that this gene inactivates one of the two copies of the X chromosome in cells that store genetic material. Keeping all this in view, they decided to focus on the identification of biomarkers for mental illness, which would, in turn, facilitate further research paving the way for the development of effective drugs.

The study was led by Xianjin Zhou, assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego School of Medicine and lead author. They carried out their study on 60 lymphoblastoid cell lines from female patients, most of whom were found with a family history of mental illness.

Results revealed that nearly 50 per cent of the female patients were found to have XIST gene and other genes related to the X chromosome. The team led by Zhou pointed out that a new treatment option for treating mental illness may be to reverse the abnormal activity of the inactive X chromosome in the patients.

The whole team is optimistic about the results, which have revealed the possibility of early diagnosis of mental illness with a simple blood test. Encouraged by the results, they intend to pursue their research, aimed at finding effective treatment options for mental illness.
