Dear lybrate user. Every young adult goes through such a dilemma and therefore trying to take decision yourself is not advisable. Concentration and focus do not come in confused mind. Talk to me. I will tell you hos. First you have to be clear about yourself, career and education. Then concentration and focus comes. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Serta is not a sleep inducing antidepressant. Your sleep will improve if your depression is lifted. Even after 4 years, if you have a sleeping problem, please consult your psychiatrist again. Please try taking serta in the morning.

Due to slump in Business and worry about the current situation I am feeling very depressed and not being able to sleep properly and get only about three hours . Please help.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your stress is of a high level. This shortage of sleep portends serious repercussions for your health, let alone your business. You must be aware that many businesses do not last for various reasons. If you have to cut your losses and shut down the business for another, do it fast and consult a professional. Sometimes the location may not be suitable, the business may have run out its course, new approaches and competition can all put you out of your venture. Change is the only constant in life: innovate or perish. Passivity is criminal to the situation. Do something, even if it wrong. Try many options before you settle with the right one. But get on with your life, and soon too. Your sleep will return to normal levels and your health will not be threatened.

Take sauna bath for 5 days. This is because it helps to release the nicotine along with the perspiration that happens during taking it. So the craving for smoking is reduced. Later, inform me after 2 weeks the changes.

I have lack sleep due to stress. How can I overcome this?
You can benefit from learning to manage stress more effectively as stress is a part of everyone's life. Please remove all things like computer, loud music, tv etc fro your bedroom and make it sleep conducive. You can also have milk and honey before going to bed. But managing your tension will bring the ultimate result as you might be thinking about your problems repetitively during the night.

Homoeopathic treatment ACONITE NAPELLUS 200 ( Dr.Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water twice daily ALPHA T.S Drops ( Wilmar Schwab India) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 time daily ACONITE NAPELLUS 200 ----During acute anxious state of mind start take ACONITE 200 1-2 drop direct on tongue every 5-10 minutes until symptoms subsides. Santoh the above medicines will help you 100% but I want that you adopt naturopathy in your life style nd for that I will recommend you to do BHRAMARI PRANAYAM daily morning as this Pranayam is a very good tress burster nd relieve you from anxiety related problems. 1.Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing 2.Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each little finger near a nostril 3.Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4.Use your Little fingers to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5.Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6.Repeat three times Tips • Always do what is most comfortable for you. If any of these exercises makes you feel light-headed or uncomfortable, stop or slow down immediately. Take breaks often as necessary. • If you have a medical condition, consult with your doctor before doing pranayama. For example, if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, labored breathing, a hernia, or any other condition that could be exacerbated by especially fast, deep, or intense breathing, you may have to modify or skip some of the following exercises. • Make sure your nose isn’t stuffy. Nostril breathing is crucial in yoga, so if you have a head cold, you won’t be able to complete these exercise. • Don’t suck in your gut. Unless otherwise noted, it’s important that you relax your stomach muscles when doing yoga breathing exercises; when they’re held tight like a corset, you can’t take oxygen as deeply into your lungs. •If you prefer to do Pranayam in the evening, do it on an empty stomach; keep a several-hour gap between your meals and Pranayam. •Sit comfortably with your spine erect. You can sit in the traditional lotus position or simply make yourself comfortable in a chair. For additional tips, •It’s preferable to practice Pranayam in the morning. Warnings • People with abdominal wounds, surgical operations, hernias, peritonitis, appendicitis, a prolapsed rectum or uterus, or a hiatus hernia, as well as women who have recently delivered, should completely avoid Kapalbhati Pranayam,

I was feeling nervous more than month ago I am 18 yr old.what can be the treatment for my nervousness

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I was feeling nervous more than month ago I am 18 yr old.what can be the treatment for my nervousness
It is very significant that you should have this at this time and age. There is something related to fear from your childhood that is surfacing seeking a resolution. Go to a counselor immediately and work out this fear. Nervousness is abnormal fear, or you are reacting to normal fear in an abnormal way. At your age the hormones will also trouble you to cause more difficulties, which is why it is so recent. It generally lasts for two years but if you do not resolve it now, you might carry a permanent negative trait into adulthood. In the meantime please do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. You may ask your parents about your developmental milestones, including that of your prenatal life to help with the therapy. Yo can also attend a personality development course and learn to meet and mix with a lot of people.

I was diagnosed with mild anxiety 5months back. My symptoms include mild palpitations that last for 20-45 minutes. I had checked my BP once when I had these palpitations, it was 150/95. When I checked it otherwise when I wasn't anxious, it was 130/85. Does anxiety cause long term BP issues? I am currently on clonazepam 0.5 mg and etizolam 0.5 mg for anxiety. I am considering pranayam and yoga too as a longer term solution. Should I consider visiting a doctor for my BP or is it normal during anxiety?

Anxiety affects your heart rate and muscle contractions and cause considerable stress. Long term anxiety can cause changes in blood pressure and lead to hypertension. A reduction in stress and anxiety with exercises, meditation, medications etc definitely reduces the blood pressure. Monitor your blood pressure very 10-12 days so as to notice the change. Visit your psychiatrist at scheduled follow ups to consider modifications in medicines accordingly. Consult online for further queries and assitance.

I am 62 years old man suffering from anxiety and depression with insomnia. Please suggest any remedy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am 62 years old man suffering from anxiety and depression with insomnia. Please suggest any remedy.
I suspect that you are one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years you have been letting the medicine do all the work on your depression and very little effort from your side. This will not do at all. So please start counseling immediately. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 scotching 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 things, 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. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success. For the insomnia please do the following: Yoga, meditation, and stress management exercises with definitely help. You must also do vigorous exercise every day, whether you get sleep or not. You should wake up at a uniform time every day, even if you don’t get sleep. You could sleep in the afternoon but try not to exceed 20 minutes to catch up with lost sleep, and that too only if necessary. Ideally, it is better not to sleep during the day at all. Even if you do not get sleep get to bed at a uniform time like 10.30 and just lie down and read some non-stimulating material. In the lying down position the body tends to regress to a childlike state and will induce sleep. Do not get up to switch off the light, and so you need to arrange for a bed lamp that can be put off at a stretch of a hand. Do not take alcohol, tea, coffee, soft drinks etc. before going to bed. A warm glass of milk before bedtime improves sleep for various reasons. Have dinner early and always make it a pure carbohydrate meal that can be had with any vegetables. Make the room as dark as possible but warm and cozy. Block out all forms of light entering the room through windows. The room must have reasonable cross-ventilation. There must not be any LED lights nearby your bed. Reduce all kinds of sounds around you: light music may be put on if it induces sleep for you with the ‘sleep’ function on. In rare cases you could watch TV in a lying position and switch off when you feel drowsy. There are some odors that could stimulate you and prevent sleep from happening; kindly examine that – this includes perfumes, soap scents, and even laundry detergents. Check out if a warm or cold bath induces sleep for you, and do that before retiring. If you have exhausted yourself through exercise, you will find it easier to relax into a stupor. Contemplate on calm and relaxing thoughts while in bed: decontaminate your mind from all the stresses of the day before going to bed. You could acquire a recording of gradual relaxation and guided relaxation routines. Sleep with your head facing North, and do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. Sleep as far as possible on your left ear. Try these for now and if these fail you must meet with a counselor and work out other matters that may be causing the insomnia.

Psychiatrist,
This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

First reason you already explained smoking, second main reason for this is iron deficiency which leads to dehydration by ceasing mucus production, smoking also causes dryness, so keep your throat hydrated with fresh fruits with pulp like banana, guava, mango chickoo, papaya, do not take cold drinks, junk food, start with iron rich diet, honey jaggery, raisins and most imprtant in your case do not do salt water gargling, this will further dehydrate your throat.
