I am 28 years old. I got sometimes nervous when I speak. I am not able to introduce myself in a meeting. I have tried Siddha medicine. But I am not fully recovered. Could anyone help me regarding my problem.

I would suggest you to take any kind of medicines. For some people social anxiety is pretty pervasive. The most common example is anxiety over public speaking. Making small talk, eating in front of others and using public restrooms also can trigger worry and unease for some. 1. Try a self-help manual. Self-help manuals are designed to supplement therapy, but they’re also good tools for working on your own. 2. Work with a therapist. If social anxiety is stopping you from doing things you want or need to do, or you haven’t had much success with self-help, seek professional help. Find a therapist who specializes in anxiety disorders. You can start your search here. 3. Practice deep breathing every day. It’s helpful to engage in deep breathing before an anxiety-provoking social situation, But practice this technique every day. This way it becomes second nature, and you don’t hyper focus on deep breathing and miss an entire conversation. 5. Create objective goals. People tend to disqualify the positive when they feel anxious, That’s why therapists encourage clients to create objective behavioral goals, he said. These are behaviors that anyone in the room would be able to observe. It doesn’t matter how you feel or whether you’re blushing or sweating (which you can’t control anyway) in a social situation. For instance, if you’re working in a group setting, the objective behavior would be to make three comments. This also gives you a good barometer for judging your progress. Again, you’re not focusing on whether you felt nervous. Rather, you’re focusing on whether you performed the actual behavior. Also, avoid focusing on others’ reactions. It doesn’t matter how your colleagues received your idea in the meeting. What matters is that you actually spoke up. It doesn’t matter whether a girl or guy said yes to your dinner invite. What matters is that you actually asked. It doesn’t matter how your child’s teacher reacted when you declined to volunteer for yet another school trip. What matters is that you were assertive and respected your own needs. 6. Keep a rational outlook. Dispute both bleak thoughts that undermine your performance and fuel your anxiety, and equally unrealistic thoughts that are irrationally positive. If you’re asking someone out, it’s not rational to think, “They’re definitely going to say yes.” But it is rational to consider, “They might,”. If social anxiety is sabotaging your goals and stopping you from living the life you want, seek help and try the above strategies. Social anxiety is highly treatable, You can get better, and grow in the process. All the very best.

Dear, 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.

Consult a psychiatrist and discuss your concerns with him. Your psychiatrist may suggest either increasing the dose or changing the medicine or adding another medicine to overcome your depression. He may also discuss with you the option of shock treatment. Many options are available to overcome depression. Do not make any hasty decisions.

I am 64 year male married in 1980 and have two children, all grown up ad well settled. Children live independently and are not depending on me. My wife is not living with me physically for more than 30 years. For the sake of my children I sacrificed my sex life and have no sex with my wife or any other women ever since my wife started living separately from me. Now I feel insecurity in my old age and want a companion as I am living with depressed mind causing diabetes and blood pressure, for which I am taking medicines. I feel, if I live a female companion, I can get rid of diabetes and blood pressure at least to a great extent. I have contacted some women and there are women ready to come and live with me. But, I do not want to disturb my present wife as she feel exposed to society and find her living miserable as all these days she used to pretend living with me. My present wife is spiritual, though not religious and immersed in her spiritual activity with an organisation, which I do not like her association with other men, depriving me health and happiness. I know, being a Hindu, it is illegal to marry a second wife when the first one is alive. The women consented to live with me have agreed for live in relationship and do not need re marriage. Please advice how to proceed in this issue and go ahead with living with another woman depriving the social status of present wife.

You can get married with your 1st wife's consent. Else, just live with the 2nd woman like live-in relationship without marriage. Living with that woman will never cure your diabetes or blood pressure, but might help you to get out of depressed mood and if you can, it can get you some sexual pleasures. All the best.

I am a 20 year old male. I have been into the habit of jacking off for about 5 years. In the initial couple of years, the frequency was low and didn't seem to disturb my daily health and my abilities: both physical and mental. However, since last 3 years I have gone through a lot of stress and sleep deprivation which has caused me to masturbate too often. There is no fixed frequency which I could mention. Consequently I have noticed my body and mind to slow down, they have lost there former magnificence. I want it back at any cost. Need urgent help.

Dear patient I go through your problem and your complete history. You know the mastrubation has effected not only your sexual as well as physical stamina too. This affects whole body as the time and age progresses. Mastrubation will also make your penis muscles and nerves weak and slow down your daily activity of mind and health.

Mentally Retarded Children - How Homeopathy Can Help?

Mentally Retarded Children - How Homeopathy Can Help?

If your child is suffering from mental retardation, homeopathy can help. A system of complementary medicine, homeopathy works on the dictum of ‘like treats like’. It is able to treat some of the toughest disorders and illnesses that allopathy finds hard to contain.

Mental retardation: Definition

  • Mental retardation is a blanket term for a pattern of persistently slow learning of basic motor and language milestones during childhood.
  • The adult manifests a below-normal intellectual capacity too.Such people have an intelligence quotient (IQ) of 70 or below.
  • They usually have developmental disabilities, developmental delay, or learning difficulties.

Signs

These signs should alert parents and spur them to see a doctor-

  1. If your child learns to sit up, to crawl, or to walk later than other children
  2. Trouble speaking and forming words, remembering things, and having trouble understanding social rules
  3. Trouble solving problems
  4. Trouble thinking logically

What needs to be made clear is that poor academic performance by itself is not a sign of mental retardation. It can be due to multifarious reasons like behaviour problems.

Causes of mental retardation

  1. Down syndrome and Fragile X syndrome are the most common genetic causes of mental retardation.
  2. Problems during pregnancy and birth
  3. Rubella infection in pregnant mother
  4. Iodine deficiency in mothers
  5. Malnutrition is a common cause of reduced intelligence in children.

Here are some homoeopathic remedies for the treatment of mental retardation. All you have to keep in mind is to treat this article as a guide and take medicines only under the guidance of a certified and trained homeopath.

  1. Abrotanum: This remedy works when your child shows marked emaciation of legs, has ageing, flabby, and loose skin, and he cannot hold up his head.
  2. Baryta carb: This homeopathy remedy is very effective in treating cretinism which is marked by a dwarfish appearance, mental retardation, with swollen abdomen, puffy face, enlarged glands, thick lips and short stature. Such children also show delayed milestones like learning to walk and speak.
  3. Calcarea carb: When your child presents symptoms like obesity, a chalky look with red face, large belly, large head, pale skin, soft bones, increased sweating, mental slowness, de¬layed skills-walking, talking, etc., this remedy is indicated.
  4. Medorrinum: The remedy is prescribed by homeopaths when your child presents symptoms like dullness and sluggishness, extreme forgetfulness, imbecility, impatience, irritability, difficulty in concentration etc. The remedy is very good for treating delusions, hallucinations, and illusions.

There are other things that you as a parent can do to help your intellectually disabled child like learn everything you can about intellectual disabilities. This way you can guide your child to live a near-normal life successfully. Also get your child involved in group activities like art classes, drawing etc. This will help him learn social skills and become more independent. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Hi, many a times we are fearful of situations which are vague and unhappy with circumstances. Its very important we recognize that it will not remain same forever, moreover it not situation which is good or bad but how we see it and interpret. You need to have an attitude of" jo hoga dekha jayega" you need to be carefree life is not about taking stress but enjoying as it is otherwise whole point of living is missed.

I am 22 years and have been using weed since 2 years. As I saw in google that weed does not effect our body and I myself could not feel any side effect. So can you tell me if I continue smoking weed will it harm me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it? The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!! If you are finding it very difficult to give it up on your own then admit yourself in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep yourself clean forever. You will need to alter your lifestyle, change your friends, your haunts, your habits, etc. You must learn to have fun in clean ways. You must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally you must be able to handle your feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach you about emotions and how to handle them.

How a smoker can keep his lungs in a good condition without hampering smoking for at least of minimum of five cigarettes in a whole day?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That idea is a pipe dream. Even one cigarette a day is harmful because tobacco smoke contains at least 4000 chemical substances. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. Over a period of time lung patches form and those areas become defunct and will hamper oxygen absorption and you will feel loss of stamina and breathlessness. Things like how much you inhale, how long you retain the smoke and how many cigarettes you smoke will impact the effects of the substance. Ideally you should quit all smoking and live a healthy life, period.

I am experiencing some behavioural problems. I've started talking to myself a lot these days. Though this is my habit for the past few years but has considerably increased these days. I've started started to keep everything up to me only. My social life is almost zero . Now I don't like meeting people even my frnds. It's like I've become over shy and over introvert. I've even tried to hurt myself a few times. The main problem is that I act scenarios which are far away from reality when I am alone. I get completely involved in it till the time the scenario exists. My sleep is almost normal. I sleep like I am unconscious at that time. I feel very low self confidence. Do I have a mental disorder?

But social anxiety, or social phobia, is more than just shyness or occasional nerves.

No matter how painfully shy you may be and no matter how bad the butterflies, you can learn to be comfortable in social situations and reclaim your life.

Love at his age takes primacy over family, career and future. Bit after few years down the lane people who have not considered this regret. I suggest you consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist for counselling, in person or online. Focus on your career and future, you will get a good life partner. Marriage In India should give happiness to all, your family members brought you to this stage with lots of love and sacrifice, consider this all before deciding.

I m in relation with a guy now. I knw him for 6yrz. 7yrz back I was in frndshp with another guy whom I considered as my own brother. I gave him a kiss as a brother at that tym and not in wrong sense.Disturbing me very badly. I cant concentrate on anything thinking whether my liver will go away from me if I tel this to him. My. Minf is disturbed. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Absolutely no problem: you can tell him and have no fear of repercussions. If he reacts badly then he does not deserve you. The matter is so trivial I am surprised at your concerns. Kissing someone like that, and seeing him only as a brother, smacks of so much of cute puppy-love that by itself it is not a threat to any relationship. I am afraid that if you harbor this fear in you, you may communicate in such a fashion expecting some trouble and inadvertently set up such a reaction from your current boyfriend! There was no sex, no love and no physical involvement that this is innocent banter after all. So share this experience in a jocular manner and with the utmost confidence and have a good laugh. Your relationship should always be based on the truth; and must be resilient enough to take such tiny experiences. Also that relationship is all over and unless you still have feelings for that guy you could be doing some injustice to this relationship. This truth is not at all incriminating. Don?t share this with your boyfriend with any fear of some wrong-doing on your part, and say it in passing, confidently and very casually.
