Hi, i'm 24 years old, I'm addicted to internet. I'm using it quite often. Due to to this I'm unable to concentrate on studies. How to overcome from this?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify what it is in the internet that you are addicted to: facebook, twitter, emails etc. These are all social sites and the most likely reason you feel addicted to them is that they provide a platform of interacting, without facing them, and getting much desired attention. This is usually an indication of the need for attention, which you may not be receiving adequately from your family and immediate circles. In other words, if you get good attention with some excitement, you will be able to give up this addiction rather, easily. Then, there is the problem of obsession and compulsion to want to do the net, leaving you little choice but to continue the behavior. You could also be covering up another deep need in you that is being met by being occupied and distracted into something else. Sometimes, it is related to a deep-rooted pain that needs some therapeutic attention. It will be good for you to attend some counseling in this regard. If you stayed away from the internet for 21 days, you can, to some extent, overcome the tendency. Then, you need to spend another 7 weeks reinforcing this new behavior. Most addicts are very intelligent people and it is sometimes their frustration that they are not getting what they deserve and are capable of, that leads to a lot of disenchantment in life: the addiction somehow gives them some outlet for that frustration. The addictive behavior has an element of being destructive too and so you need to address that drive in you to choose life instead of death! this is well dealt with in the script issue, then, there is the rigid value system, and some contribution from some genetic influences that may seem unrelated but will have an influence. These can be addressed through counseling, and must be kept up for nearly three years to completely resolve it. You need to find alternative interesting activities and create a new set of friends and social circles. Get into a tight time-schedule and fill it will mind and body occupying activities. Exercise must be an integral part of your daily life too. Sleep well and eat healthily too. Look at your career and see if changes need to be made in that area of your life. New study courses and skills set can be acquired to make some important successes in your professional life: most people from good families, successful careers, and good jobs have a faster and better recovery from addictions!

I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Several epidemiological studies show that eating a Mediterranean diet dramatically reduces the risk of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease. That means plenty of vegetables, beans, whole grains, fish, and olive oil—and limited dairy and meat.

Hi I am regular smoker from last 7 year. Today I got very little bleeding during cough. Suggest me what to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could be in danger if you do not quit immediately. You should visit a doctor first and get an immediate assessment of your problem and take the necessary medications. In the meantime you can follow these directions regarding quitting: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Tell your family psychiatrist s treat not only psychosis, when people may lose in touch with reality, but also common disorders like anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, adjustment problems, etc come under psychiatric disorders. Many lives have been lost or affected due to STIGMA held by family members and caregivers. You family needs to be properly educated and guided by someone.

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all 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 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

One of my friend is drinking alcohol daily, his addicted to alcohol, smoking also his not able to stop it, kindly suggest me how it's stop it permanently.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some medicines that help with smoking cessation. But with the drinking the medication involves your cousin’s full knowledge and cooperation. He may consult a psychiatrist regarding this. Now making him stop, is a very difficult and near impossible task. Even if it appears that you have succeeded, I can guarantee it will end up a failure: his willingness is paramount to his recovery, which you say is fortunately there. The combination of alcohol and smoking is deadly for his health. I am so glad that he is seeking to get rid of these habits and that will play a major role in his recovery. He must stop them both, abruptly and immediately. If he thinks that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and let him go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of these habits. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the smoking and drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as his primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after whichever treatment approach he chooses, he must attend AA meetings, and his family must also attend some Al-anon meetings to help them deal with their own issues regarding his alcoholism and to support him too in the recovery process. This fabulous decision will benefit him firstly, and his entire family. He is taking action that will have major bearing to many lives.

If you often feel tired, exhausted, fatigued, stressed or suffer from aches and pains or other chronic ailments, we have the ultimate solution. If you seek a deep level of luxurious pampering, relaxation and revitalization to carry your body, mind and spirit to another plane then Panchakarma is for you!

With much love and care Arogyam Ayurveda designed this therapy package to eliminate the internal causes of diseases and release the burden on your whole being. Large quantities of toxic bi-products are formed in the body as a result of numerous factors, including the body’s continuous metabolic processes, wrong body habits, wrong food habits, incompatible combination of food items, suppression of body urges, emotional imbalances, etc..

If your elimination system is functioning well most of these toxins are eliminated naturally. However, if it’s mal-functioning damaging toxins are deposited in various parts of the body. This toxic load results in the impairment of the Doshas, Dhatus (tissues), etc.. Consequently, normal functioning of the body systems are also impaired and we feel the many symptoms of toxicity and general ill health.

Your problem is termed as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS)and it is a condition in which people are highly sensitive to electromagnetic fields. In an area such as a wireless hotspot or Internet connection, they experience Headache and a variety of other symptoms including fatigue, nausea, burning and itchy skin, and muscle aches. These symptoms are subjective and vary between individuals.There are also some indications that these symptoms may be due to pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions as a result of worrying about believed EMF( Electromagnetic Frequency) health effects, rather than the EMF exposure itself but whatever is the cause, EHS is a real and sometimes a disabling problem for the affected persons. The five most common symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity are: 1. skin itch/rash/flushing/burning, and/or tingling 2. confusion/poor concentration, and/or memory loss 3. fatigue and weakness 4. headache 5. chest pain and heart problems

I am a 27yr old and have alcoholism last 6 months can you give suggestion for to stop drinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I do not know how much alcohol you have been consuming but you can follow these guidelines anyway. It is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with your family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.
