Hi, most importantly, meet him, sit down clarify whatever doubts you have whatever is making you uncomfortable. If he loves you he should comfort you and provide you the solution. You are planning your marriage with him 2 years is not a long time to know everything about each other. Please its advised to know and gather all information about him from all the sources and if all is positive marry him. Make sure this parents are aware about you. The behavior needs some modification, so sit down and talk about it. Tell him your expectations and ask him about his. Only when you are fully satisfied take this major step called marriage. Consult me for any doubts. All the best.

Foods That Help Fight Depression

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Foods That Help Fight Depression

Turkey

e traditional Thanksgiving bird has the protein building-block tryptophan, which your body uses to make serotonin. That's a brain chemical that plays a key role in depression, researchers say. In fact, some antidepressant drugs work by targeting the way your brain uses serotonin. You can get the same mood-boosting effect from chicken and soybeans.

Brazil Nuts

This snack is rich in selenium, which helps protect your body from tiny, damaging particles called free radicals. One study found that young people who didn't have enough of this nutrient in their diets were more likely to be depressed. The researchers couldn't say that low selenium caused depression, though. Just one Brazil nut has almost half your daily requirement of the mineral so be careful to limit how many you eat. Other foods with this mineral include brown rice, lean beef, sunflower seeds, and seafood.

Carrots

They're full of beta-carotene, which you can also get from pumpkin, spinach, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. Studies have linked this nutrient to lower levels of depression. There's not enough evidence to say that it can prevent the disorder, but it can't hurt to get more in your diet.

Coffee

A jolt of caffeine can be a pick-me-up that helps you feel more motivated. But if you have postpartum depression or panic disorder, some studies suggest that it might make your symptoms worse. Other researchers say a cup of joe can lower your risk of getting depression, though they're not sure why.

Leafy Greens

They're packed with folate, which your brain cells need to work well and which may help protect against depression. Food manufacturers in the U.S. add this vitamin, also known as B9, to enriched grains like pasta and rice. You can also get it from lentils, lima beans, and asparagus.

Milk

It's a good source of vitamin D. If you have very low levels of this nutrient in your body, that can sometimes cause depression. One Norwegian study found that people who took a vitamin D supplement were less depressed a year later than those who didn't. Don't like milk? Boost the D in your diet with enriched cereals and juices, and canned fish.

Caution: Alcohol

It might seem like just the thing to take the edge off your worries or make you feel more social. But most of the time, it's best if you drink wine, beer, and mixed drinks only in moderation. You might feel better in the moment, but heavy drinking can make depression symptoms worse over time, because alcohol makes your brain less active. It also can make antidepressant medications less effective.

Caution: Junk Food

It may be fast and filling, but these processed foods can be bad news for your mood. Scientists have studied how diets high in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and fatty foods affect how you feel. Many found some link between these unhealthy eats and depression. Your best bet: a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Dear Depak, Please write the diagnosis which the doctor made after examining you so that i may be able to catch up. Climbing stairs will raise the heat beating rate in any person. Feeling exhausted whenever you go out also may be a natural reaction of your body needing rest. With continued use of ointment your pain may subside, your back may relax.Please wait.

According to his age his weight is more. You have to work towards his weight loss programme. Overweight causes lot of lethargy and fatigue. Let him indulge in any outdoor activities like playing football or tennis, swimming ,cycling, jogging etc. Let him stop all kinds of junk food outside food and sweets chocolates cold drinks etc.

I am 30 years old, for the last 1 year I am facing memory problems, I can't remember names of people and places, even well known name's are taking more time to recall. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to look back to the last year and see if you can identify any stress that may be causing this memory loss, purely because of your age. Stress is a major reason for us to lose concentration and therefore loss to memory. You should then meet with a counselor and work this stress out of your system and memory will happily return. If it is not due to this stress you may then need to go for a thorough medical check up and see if there are other reasons to affect memory. You may also put in some extra effort to focus and note down some details of information that will help you recall. Make it a habit and perhaps a little bit of a game.

Premature ejaculation is common problem and has multiple reasons starting from anxiety, sensitive penis, masterbation in a fashion to ejaculate early, lifestyle etc. With ayurveda pe can be cured however before starting or suggesting any medicine it is very important to understand root cause of problem. Once root cause is found along with medicnes and lifestyle change problem can be cured. So do not worry discuss it in details. I am sure once root cause is found and treatment starts you will feel the change in 10 days. So do not worry.

Hie, M a girl N I smoke cigarette twice a day, is it okay or it will effect me badly?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Your lungs can be very badly affected by smoking. Coughs, colds, wheezing and asthma are just the start. Smoking can cause fatal diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema and lung cancer. Smoking causes 84% of deaths from lung cancer and 83% of deaths from chronic obstructive lung disease, including bronchitis. To leave that habit: sauna bath for 5 days which helps you to drain out nicotine from the sweat produced over skin. This will reduce your craving for smoking. Then revert me back with follow-up.

Lybrate-user, do a simple n exercise close your eyes and think of 4-5 unpleasant /hurtful interactions with your friend in past and play like a movie inside with your eyes closed, repeat it for 3-4 times. Do it for some days. Its a mere habit (of being with him), it will be replaced with another soon, life is flux, everything is an a process of change, nothing stops, e has moved on and so should you!

I have performance anxiety. How do I get rid of it? It spoils my performance badly.
Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.  If you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately.

Of course, it could change. However, he must want the change and with some therapy he could develop the natural tendency to love the members of the opposite sex. Have him visit a counselor or sexologist and explore this possibility.
