General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Brain Size and Intelligence - Are the Two Related?

DM - Neurology

Brain Size and Intelligence - Are the Two Related?

When it comes to the brain and IQ, is bigger better? Does size really matter? Is there really a connection between the size of your brain and intelligence? With the help of findings by neurologists and scientists, we seek to find out!

  1. Ailments and the brain: Scientists have found that children with autism have a brain that has grown in a disproportionate manner in the very first year of their life. This prevents the child from making connection in a normal manner. On the other hand, children and adolescents who suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD show sign of having a much smaller brain size. Many scientists have shown that the size of the brain shrinks as we age and this does not have any visible effect on our cognitive abilities.
  2. It’s all relative: The size of the brain does not really have a bearing on the way a person’s cognition gets shaped. Even large mammals like elephants and whales are finally hunted and tamed by humans who have smaller brains in comparison. The brain is made up of billions of neurons, which need to function properly. It may be seen that scientists consider the brain mass in relation with the rest of the body so as to speculate about the cognitive abilities of the person. Why is this required? Large animals need a well functioning and proportionate brain size to control and run their organs with proper cognition for satisfactory results, which is what we humans seem to have done.
  3. Neanderthal brain: Historically, the earliest man or the Neanderthals are said to have had larger brains than we do. These people are believed to have brains that are at least 10% larger than the brains that we have in our modern times. The shape of their brain was different too. They were also heavily muscled people which had a bearing on the size and shape of the brain and bodies as well as the lean tissue within the brain. They also survived very successfully for a period of over 200,000 years, which obviously points to some form of elevated cognition, as per many scientists.
  4. Animals: While animals with small brains like lizards and reptiles do not perform too well on IQ tests, the animals with bigger brains like elephants and dolphins perform much better. But the medium sized brain of monkeys, lemurs and other animals are said to perform in the best manner. The correlation between the body size and the brain does not seem to hold good here, as per various researches.

So the verdict as per medical science and research stands divided! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Whenever I sit down to study, going well for sometime I want to relax and don't have full concentration on studies. How to increase concentration?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly.

Discussing ed problems with your partner

Discussing ed problems with your partner

Discussing ed problems with your partner

Communication plays one of the most important roles in any sexual relationship.

For most men who begin to detect the signs of erectile dysfunction, it can be a big challenge to admit it to their partner about the problem.

Emotions may run high and you may feel nervous or awkward and get stressed about your partner's reaction to it.

But always remember that your problem is also affecting your partner. And a clear discussion may be the first step to the diagnosis and treatment of your problem.

Try and get past the initial hesitation and talk it out to your partner. Feeling embarrassed about discussing your problem of erectile dysfunction can make your relationship even worse.

While it is not easy to communicate with your partner about your erection problems, it is imperative that you do so.

Here are a few tips for getting the conversation started.

1. Don't hesitate

Sometimes the most difficult part is just starting the conversation on this subject. Yet you need to explain the issue in plain simple words.

Admitting it your partner can be the first step to getting started on the road to recovery.

Make sure that you and your partner are comfortable and not stressed out at the time you choose to discuss the matter.

It might feel awkward at the beginning but once the conversation flows, it will be much easier for you to explain. Talking frankly about your problem will also increase the chances of winning the emotional support of your partner.

2. Discuss the treatment options

Because of the advancement in medicine, erection problems are much easily treated than ever before.

Once you have opened the discussion on this subject let your partner know that there are treatments available for this problem. This will give her hope and a positive attitude towards the situation.

Having your partner's support in taking the treatment will make it much easier for both of you to deal with it.

3. Be positive

Stay supportive and positive. Be more expressive about your feelings of love and attraction towards her. Let her know you care.

Focus more on emotional intimacy. Sometimes going bravely through such difficulties together makes the relationship even stronger.

Avoiding the issue of impotence will not make it disappear but will just raise the level of tension and frustration in the relationship.

Therefore, it's very important to discuss the issue with your partner and subsequently, seek medical help and counseling as soon as possible.

Keeping these things in mind, you can deal better with the problem of erectile dysfunction and reduce its impact on your relationship.

He might be having emotionally unstable personality, accept what he is, and ignore his negatives and take his positives. Speak with him softly when he is a good mood and you can encourage him to get the help of a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist to control his outbursts. All the best.

Dear user. I can understand. But do not get disappointed. You should ask yourself. Sit on a calm place and introspect. Why you are not getting your job? Are you well qualified? Are you looking for a specific job with specific salary? Are you looking for a specific city or place? What ability you have in addition? Once you introspect, you will come to know your plus and minus points. You can go ahead with correction. I suggest online career counseling. Take care.

Don’t divert or try to perform multiple tasks at a time If the subject appears difficult, tackle bit by bit. *If you don’t understand first time, leave some time and try again when your mind is fresh. *Any amount of reading without understanding is a waste. *Jot down points in your note book and you remember the points better. *Underline important points. You remember them better. *Have good night’s sleep. Maintain timings. *. Give task to your brain. Avoid idling. *Stop multitasking.. *Play brain games.. *Master a new skill.. *.

Sir. I have a habit of cigarette. I puff at least 6 cigarettes in a day. please give me the suggestions to leave that one. Thanks.

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.

I have agoraphobia. I Rarely leave the house, feel nauseous on public transport, in shops and anywhere else confined. Can any psychiatrist please tell me some tips to help cope with my agoraphobia? And some over the counter medications I could get for it?

Agoraphobia can be effectively helped by seeking session from a clinical psychologist. We use two methods in these cases. Systematic desentisitation where we expose person slowing to these places first with pictures, then with videos, then at the actual place. Along this relaxation therapy is taught. The person is taught how to feel relaxed in these situations - the body finally gets accustomed and results are seen. This takes between 5-6sessions. Another new and effective method is Cognitive Drill Therapy. Here we use effective skills as a therapist to drill the mind and overcome the fear. You can google above methods to find more information. And accordingly get sessions done to help with your problem.

Drinking alcohol while taking antidepressants is generally not advised because alcohol can make depression worse. It can also increase the side effects of some antidepressants, such as drowsiness, dizziness and co-ordination problems. Therefore, it’s best to avoid drinking alcohol if you're taking antidepressants, particularly if you're going to drive or operate machinery.

Hello, my grandpa is suffering from skin cancer. Because of smoking continues cigarette from last 40 years. Now he is of 75 years. So is there any idea to how to reduce his cigarette.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Quitting smoking is done slowly and steadily managing the withdrawal symptoms. First you have to motivate him to stop smoking. If he is motivated for 12 weeks or so you need to nicotine gum or patch to control withdrawal symptoms. Encourage and appreciate him even for any small stp he takes towards it. Skin cancer needs other treatment apart from stop smoking. Try your best.

Many individuals have heightened sex drives that cause them to become distracted in the workplace and at home. An increased sex drive often correlates with heightened aggression, and it can also lead to sex addiction. If you have an increased sex drive and want to relieve yourself of its constant presence, there are a number of things you can do to decrease your libido and keep it under control. Step 1 infuse your diet with soy. Soy has been proven to reduce testosterone levels, which will in turn reduce libido. Step 2 eat a low-fat diet. Increased consumption of fat is associated with an increase of testosterone levels, but cutting back on fats--particularly saturated fats--will help bring your sex drive down. Step 3 eat the herb caste tree berry. Also known as" monk's pepper, this supplement has been used to reduce libido since the middle ages. But unlike most other herbs, it has retained its use, as it has been proven over time to be effective in combating a high sex drive. Step 4 stay away from animal proteins. The proteins and hormones found in meats like beef, chicken, pork and turkey can contribute to high testosterone levels. Vegetarians tend to have lower testosterone levels than omnivores, and thus lower libidos. Step 5 exercise frequently. Working out reduces your testosterone levels while increasing cortisol. Marathon runners frequently have lower-than-average testosterone levels because of this.

Overall you must be fit physically by regular exercise and proper diet, mentally strong by meditation, good sleep, and practicing mental hygiene, and emotionally strong by dealing with your feelings as soon as they arise. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Antidepressants at the earliest should be given. Nowadays many new latest drugs are available which can treat his depression that too with minimal/simple side effects. Counselling after few weeks of antidepressants also will help. He should try to be social, follow his hobbies, do some sporting activities etc. By doing these he can overcome depression.
