I am seeing porn videos everyday! Is this a good thing, will it cause any effect to the mental behaviour?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Watching porn once a day is not much, and definitely isn't addiction (unless it goes for hours and hours every time). A good indicator whether it's healthy or not, it's your feelings afterwards: if you feel good, then it's likely ok; if you feel bad or sad then it might be harmful. Porn can peacefully coexist with real life (and that's what happen for most people using it); you could even have a partner and still enjoy porn" on the side" every now and then. But, if you're escaping into porn instead of living real life, that's a problem. When we use something (anything) to escape from life, we're in trouble; if that's your case, seek help: talk with some friends, your parents, a mentor, or some professionals. On the other hand, if you enjoy porn a lot and - at the same time - you have a fulfilling, active and thriving real life, then do not worry and enjoy what makes you happy. And" happy" is the key here. Notice your feelings (both emotional and bodily) after you've watched porn: if you feel good, then it's most likely okay. If you feel bad, sad or unhappy, then it's a sign porn may not be healthy for you. Lastly, keep in mind porn doesn't represent reality. Yes, it's fun and you might learn some trick from it, but a good chunk of what you see in porn will never happen in your life. That's because porn is the visual representation of (average) male sexual fantasies. And fantasy is (more often than not) different from reality.

Effects of Smoking and Drinking on Oral Hygiene

There is a very famous quote that smoking is a very classy way to commit suicide. Its adverse effects is not only evident on the smoker's lungs and respiratory system but on his health as a whole. The mouth suffers the immediate consequences - gums become pale, teeth lose their white color and the taste buds and the tongue get affected. It also has a damaging effect on the mouth muscles and lead to frequent mouth and tongue dryness ultimately leading to oral cancer.

Smoking during pregnancy affects the embryo formation and very often leads to the delivery of abnormal children or physical deformities in them.

The Role of Nicotine

The concoction of chemicals like nicotine in tobacco or smoke, and plaque bacteria leads to deterioration of the teeth. Before you realize, the teeth and the gums get considerably damaged which is irreversible. This paves the way to cavities and loosening of teeth that eventually have to be pulled out.


Alcohol contains good amount of sugars, which very easily settle in the mouth making it a bacteria-breeding place that feed on gums and teeth. The smoke which is drawn from a cigarette and the bacteria present together release a dangerous acid which results in stomach acidity initially and ultimately leads to oral cancer. This is also another reason to throat and intestine cancers as well.

Limiting the Damage

It is always good to quit smoking and drinking. Even though being addicted is not good, keeping the damage at its minimum is advisable. It is very important not only to brush and floss your teeth every morning but also after every meal. It is a good habit to rinse the mouth with water very often when you are drinking to normalize the saliva flow. Do not forget to keep chewing sugar free gums very often if you are a regular drinker.
Regular visits to the dentist is almost a mandate for regular smokers and drinkers. If you or any of your family members are facing oral hygiene problems and looking for suggestions or treatment

How to enhance the capacity of brain power for means of memorizing any things related to study?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am not at all surprised by your plight. But there is a god reason for it and that itself is good news.I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your 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. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you 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 you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you 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 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 are 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.

Be more confident and overcome your fears. Deal with situations as and when they come. Do not try to project your fears. In case of any situation and anybody tries to poke you be courageous and confident enough to not let anybody ride over you. You are the controller of your situation.

OCD - Can It Be Controlled?

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine

OCD - Can It Be Controlled?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder in which a person has recurring thoughts and feels the urge to perform certain specific tasks at regular intervals. Living with OCD can very difficult and medications or therapy alone cannot guarantee complete recovery. The patient himself/herself has to take certain steps to win against the disease.

Here are some measures you can take to control the symptoms of OCD to recover faster.

1. Accept the truth: If you cultivate an accepting approach towards the fact that you are suffering from OCD and will experience obsessive thoughts then it will be easier to cope with the situation. You have to convince yourself that the recurring thoughts and compulsions you're having are not real, do not imply anything and will go away soon. This helps you maintain an optimistic approach and accelerate your recovery process.

2. Try to postpone your compulsions: When you have the urge to do certain ritualistic tasks try not to give in to them. Try to suppress the urges by saying to yourself that you will do it later and then involve yourself in normal day to day activities so that the compulsions can't rule you anymore.

3. Divert your attention: When you feel that you are having a recurring thought or compulsion, try to distract yourself by channelizing your thoughts towards some other activity. You will find that as you engage yourself in other activities, the obsessive compulsive thoughts will lose their impact on you and will prove to be less bothering.

4. Tell yourself that ocd is one of the most insignificant things of your life: Reduce the amount of value you impart to the disorder. Try to convince yourself that ocd cannot change your way of living life and you don't need to give in to your recurring thoughts and compulsions every time. Try to believe that you will not let this disorder affect your life in anyway and it's just your brain bringing these thoughts, not you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

HELLO lybrate-user, Please note. Systemic lupus erythematosus, often abbreviated as SLE or lupus, is a systemic autoimmune disease (or autoimmune connective tissue disease) in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. There are many kinds of lupus. The most common type is systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which affects many internal organs in the body. SLE most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable, with periods of illness (called flare-ups) alternating with remissions. Remidies. If you keep on signs and symptoms Try to: See your doctor regularly. Having regular checkups instead of only seeing your doctor when your symptoms worsen may help your doctor prevent flare-ups, and can be useful in addressing routine health concerns, such as stress, diet and exercise that can be helpful in preventing lupus complications. Get adequate rest. People with lupus often experience persistent fatigue that's different from normal tiredness and that isn't necessarily relieved by rest. For that reason, it can be hard to judge when you need to slow down. Get plenty of sleep at night and naps or breaks during the day as needed. Be sun smart. Because ultraviolet light can trigger a flare, wear protective clothing — such as a hat, long-sleeved shirt and long pants — and use sunscreens with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 55 every time you go outside. Get regular exercise. Exercise can help you recover from a flare, reduce your risk of heart attack, help fight depression and promote general well-being. Don't smoke. Smoking increases your risk of cardiovascular disease and can worsen the effects of lupus on your heart and blood vessels. Eat a healthy diet. A healthy diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Sometimes you may have dietary restrictions, especially if you have high blood pressure, kidney damage or gastrointestinal problems. Otherwise, get 5 to 6 treatments of acupuncture it will be of great help.

Masturbation once in a week or twice a week is not harmful. But try to control your desire to do it. As such there are no scientific back up for bad things about it.

I am a suffering from depression. I am not able to focus on what I want to achieve. I have one friend without him I am unable to live. He is whole and sole for me. But after his marriage he started ignoring me on the demand of his wife. What to do I am not able to understand. I have started thinking about suicide attempts. My mind think like that only. What to do, his wife think that we both are gay. I am also married. But don't know how to handle the situation. And get out of this. Can you please help me. Please.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Kaustubh, It is difficult to cut off from someone you love so much. But you have to do, since you don't want your friend to have problems with his wife. You also need to spend more time with your wife, other family members and other friends. May be, you are suffering from Major Depressive disorder and that is why you are thinking of suicide. You need treatment with antidepressants and talk therapy. That will take your mind to larger world of friends and relatives and other fun things.

My heart is beating more and I am feeling tensed and some times I am thinking negatively, there is no problem when I feel alone, once I am in a group or with a stranger, I feel much tense. Please help me.

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
You may be suffering from anxiety. Your body is simply reacting to your mental anxiety. Don't worry about the fast heart rate. You need therapy to control the mental anxiety. If your fear is limited to social situations then it could be social phobia. There are medicines available for it. There are many behavior and cognitive therapies also available that can teach you to control your reactions in a public situation. For a start you can try to learn controlled breathing when you are alone. Then practice the same in a social situation. If you are able to keep your breathing slow and steady, your heart rate will normalize. Once that happens, your mind will relax.

Weight gain after quitting smoking does not increase the risk of heart disease

In a study published in Journal of American Association, researchers from Switzerland have shown that in non?diabetics, weight gain after quitting smoking does not take away the cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking.

There is a net cardiovascular benefit of smoking cessation despite subsequent weight gain. Smoking cessation is always beneficial for smokers.

People gain 6 to 8 pounds of weight after quitting smoking. In the study, quitting smoking was also linked with a decreased risk of heart attack or cardiac death compared to smokers.

My dear doctor, I'm underweight, age- 29, height-169 cm, weight- 48. Due to chronic anxiety, I can't gain my weight. My anxiety is whether I would get any health problem if I gain weight. Is chronic anxiety like a harmful disease which can bring many dangerous health issues to human body?

Acupressurist, Chandigarh
Dear Lybrate user, You should take banana and mango shake daily. Soaked black raisions daily morning you should take for increase of weight. Try to keep yourself busy all the time. Almonds. Soak 10 raw almonds overnight in water to soften, then peel off the skins. Put almonds in blender with 1 cup warm milk, a pinch of ginger, and a pinch of nutmeg. Drink at night to help you relax before going to bed.

Yours is not a healthy love at all. Maintain your friendship as such. Maintain neither like nor dislike attitude toward him. Do not bother about believing in or doubting the boys and its not the right time to think over such things. A true love is beyond such things. Love your noble creer of medicine, you will find how foolishly you are being trapped by the so called hormonal influences.
