I just married 2 months back and my wife on 2nd day started crying and telling me you are avoiding me if you are not interested you should have not married. For small small things she will get angry and she won't understand the situation. Yesterday she was asking any good news, I told to my wife we have married just 2 months back and you are asking good news in short period. I have done intercourse but it will take time. Please give me good answer for this so that I can show to my wife she won't believe what I tell? Please advise.

Hello your wife wants you attention from you . Please give more important to her . Bcoz she is newly married she feels alone . Go for movie , go for dinner , give some gifts every week . Like flowers, dresses, saree, perfumes. Feel her she is special for u. Talk her with proper manner , she is only asking any good news . And you r giving a lecture about marriage duration. Its wrong . U can say her you r my good news . U came in life and my life is now beautiful . Becoz of you . If she making lunch dinner tell her you cook nice . 1.Talk to her respectfully without demeaning her or hurting her feelings. 2. Find something that makes you laugh together. 3. Put your arms around her when she needs comfort, holding her silently. 4.Surprise her by doing something you think she would want done before she asks. 5. Show interest in that which she values as important in her life. 6.Be a good listener. Show her you value what she says. 7.Plan a mini-honeymoon, where the two of you can spend quality time together. 8.Go shopping with her and don’t sigh or look at what time it is even once. 9.Be especially helpful when she is not feeling well. 10.When she asks how your day went, don’t just say “fine” —actually give her details. 11. Don’t embarrass her by arguing with her in front of others. 12. Make eye contact when she is talking to you and when you are talking with her. 13.Surprise her from time-to-time with a card and flowers or a little gift. 14.Give her your undivided attention when she wants to talk. 15.Sit close to her —even when you are just watching television. 16.Do not making plans without her agreeing with them 16. Ask her and then listen to what makes her fearful and insecure (without judging) 17. Be careful to choose your words, especially when angry. 18.Hold her close and verbally express your love when she is hurt or discouraged. 19. Allow her to express herself freely, without fear of being called illogical or dumb. 20. Fix dinner for her sometimes. 21. Tell her (and show her) you love her often. 22.Don’t ignore the small things that bother her and let them build into bigger issues. 23.Call, email or text her when you’re apart so she knows you are thinking of her. 24.Show her affection without sexual intentions. Take care of her.

My father who is 52 years of age has been diagnosed of multiple sclerosis but we do not know the basis of it and the cure for it. Can you please help?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, The name multiple sclerosis refers to the multiple scars (or scleroses) on the myelin sheaths. MS results from attacks by an individual’s immune system on his or her own nervous system, and it is therefore called an autoimmune disease. The various expressions of disease can be managed effectively, gently, and safely with Homeopathy. Early intervention with homeopathy can assist in preventing further progress and hence deterioration caused by disease. A complete case history is needed for the prescription. Thank you.

Hi, on reading your problem it appears that the person about whom you have talked is suffering from delusion of infidelity. In this, person who is suffering from this remains involved in such activity. The best way to get help is to get help from a psychiatrist. However it is very difficult to treat this but still many cases improved significantly specially in cases in which person suffering from this used to take alcohol.

Dealing With Anxiety Disorders in Youngsters

Dealing With Anxiety Disorders in Youngsters

In today's fast paced world, the number of cases of teenagers with serious mental health problems like anxiety disorders have quadrupled. An anxiety disorder affects the thinking, feelings as well as the behaviour of a young person. It is important to seek professional help if one sees any of the warning signs of anxiety disorder in a youngster. Most of the normal anxiety issues are short lived and the feelings may last for few hours. However, an anxiety problem becomes an anxiety disorder when anxious feelings are very intense, severe and last for weeks or months. They start interfering in a youngster's ability to socialise, learn and daily activities.

Let's talk specific:

1. Aviophobia: Fear of flying, also known as aviophobia, is an anxiety disorder classified as a situational Specific Phobia. The person with fear of flying, heights has a continuing and excessive fear triggered by flying or the thought of flying or heights. Typically, flying is avoided or endured with intense anxiety, which may take the form of a panic attack.

2. Claustrophobia: Claustrophobia is a fear of being in an enclosed space. Thus, being trapped in a lift scare those who have such phobia. Also, travelling through a tunnel or metro makes people anxious if you have claustrophobia. A person suffering can often feel distressed just with the thought of being in a bus, train or plane. Usually any small, enclosed space would trigger a panic attack, especially if you felt trapped.

The problem with this way of thinking is it spreads to other places. Subways, lifts, small rooms are the classic scenario, but the intense fear of the person  is not restricted just to these places. The fear and the panic can be experienced in any place where the person perceives a confinement, closeness or trapped feeling.

If anxiety disorder in a youngster is ignored and left untreated, it can have long-term consequences on the mental health and can hamper development. The first step is to talk with the youngster and others who might be able to help like a general practitioner, school counsellor, family members or other parents. Identification of a teenage anxiety problem is difficult as youngsters are good at hiding their feelings and thoughts. They are able to mask those feelings with aggressive behaviour or withdrawal.

Young people might be diagnosed with more than one type of anxiety disorder. Social phobia or social anxiety disorder occurs when one develops an intense fear of being judged or embarrassed in public. Excessive worry about everyday situations is called as generalised anxiety disorder. Panic disorder is repeated, unexpected panic attacks where one encounters panic in a situation where most people wouldn't be afraid. Excessive fear of being separated from home or a loved one is separation anxiety disorder.

There are many things that one can do to support the youngster mentally and reduce the risk. 

Strong family support and relationships have shown to help protect youngsters from anxiety disorders. Seeking professional help early for the youngster is the best thing one can do when symptoms are seen or the youngster is experiencing severe anxious feelings which are interfering with his normal activities.

One must not ignore or dismiss youngster's fears.

Encourage him gently to do things that make him anxious, but do not push him to situations that he does not want to face. Also, praise him for doing things he's anxious about. Refer the youngster as brave and not anxious or shy. Set up a role model for him by managing your own stress and anxiety. A professional help for an anxiety disorder is vital for youngster's healthy development. Psychological treatment concentrates on strategies to help youngsters cope up with anxiety. Anti-depressants drugs are used to reduce the symptoms of anxiety disorders. One should also stop or reduce consumption of caffeine products such as coffee, tea, cola, energy drinks and chocolate.

Respected Madam, Depression is a major psychiatric diagnosis of which a depressed mood is only one symptom. Other symptoms include decreased energy, loss of interest in activities, decreased concentration, changes in sleep/appetite/activity levels/weight along with depressive and even suicidal ideas. If you still believe that you are suffering from depression and if you have many of the symptoms mentioned above, the best course of action would be to consult with a local psychiatrist who could evaluate you in detail and confirm your diagnosis. He/she should also be able to treat your current depressive symptoms with medicines or therapy depending on the severity. Thank You Madam and Take Care.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Anxiety can be of various types and can be part of one's personality, be a disorder in its own right or present as a part of other psychiatric disorders. There is no one best treatment for all of anxiety. SO we will need to see the exact nature and characteristics of the anxiety and come up with a personalized solution. Exercise, good sleep, meditation, breathing exercises, balanced diet and plenty of water are advisable. Medicines, counseling/ therapy may be needed. Please see a professional in person for a proper evaluation and management. I am aware that it is tempting to have a quick solution, but the reality is it is best to deal with these kinds of problems after a proper evaluation. Take care!

Zaptra and depran belong to the same class of anti-depressant. If you didn't have any sexual side-effects with depran, then it is unlikely you may get any from zaptra. However, the known side effects are prolonged ejaculation, difficulty in orgasm and sometimes decreased sexual desire.

I tried to quit smoke but my mind divert now I will never do smoke but I do so what I have to for quit smoke please give me some tips but I played Daily volleyball ball then running and 2 hrs gym write now I doing gym bcz my exam es going on so now please give me a your advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is one thing to quit but it is another matter staying quit. 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.

How Stress Creates Depression: 6 Ways to Manage Stress

How Stress Creates Depression: 6 Ways to Manage Stress

Stress is a normal physical response to events that make us feel threatened or upset our balance in some way.

When we sense danger – whether real or imagined – the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction, or stress response. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting us. So it’s important to know effective ways to manage stress.

Stress can lead to depression. In fact depression is one of the major outcomes of stress.

How Stress Creates Depression

From the Ayurvedic point of view, most depression is an imbalance of doshas. A dosha is a fundamental principle in the body that goes out of balance. If left untreated imbalanced doshas can lead to more serious problems.

There are three doshas in the body.

Kapha dosha is the earth and water principle in the body. Kapha forms the glue and structure of our bodies. It’s qualities are heaviness, slowness and steadiness. Depression is an imbalance of kapha dosha that begins to set in when stress occurs.

In depression, first the air principle (Vata dosha) and then the fire principle (Pitta dosha) get out of balance. In other words, the brain’s electro chemistry has an erratic overreaction to a stressful circumstance. This triggers a loss of enzymatic activity in the metabolism.

The body responds by trying to glue everything down, bringing about heaviness, darkness, and stagnation. The mind-body interprets this as a negative message of hopelessness and depression ensues.

In other words, because of specific etiological factors, Vata from the colon, pitta from the intestine, or Kapha from the stomach enters the general circulation and lodges in the nervous system. These imbalanced doshas interfere with the normal functioning of the mind and nervous system and cause depression.

So before stress gets control over your body and mind you must learn ways to manage stress. It is actually easy to do.

6 Ways To Manage Stress

1. Keep a daily routine.

If you follow a daily routine, stress never can be a part of your life.

In Sanskrit the daily routine is called dinacharya. It means to merge your daily cycle with the natural cycle of the Sun, Moon, Earth and the other planets in our solar system.

Dinacharya is one of the best things that you can do to stay in balance, prevent disease and heal almost any disease. Set your daily routine from the moment you wake up to the time you go to bed in a correct manner and follow it regularly without any excuse.

Fix your time of waking up, breakfast, lunch, dinner, time with family and time you go to bed. To conquer stress, it is very important to manage your daily routine in this way.

2. Get A Relaxing Massage

An oil massage is an integral part of the daily routine recommended by Ayurveda for overall health and well-being. Traditional Ayurvedic texts wax eloquent on the benefits.

Give yourself a full body oil massage on a daily basis. It is nourishing, pacifies the doshas, relieves fatigue, provides stamina, pleasure and perfect sleep, enhances the complexion and the luster of the skin, promotes longevity and nourishes all parts of the body.

3. Do Yoga 

Make Yoga and Meditation a your part of your daily life. Yoga helps to connect our body to our mind and our mind to our soul. This is the best natural way to health and happiness, realizing our inner self and our true nature.

4. Meditate Daily

An ordinary person may consider meditation as worship or prayer. But it is not so. Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. Watching your breath is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation.

5. Receive Shirodhara

Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic therapy where warm oil or other liquid is poured in a continuous stream over the forehead. This treatment is perfect for stress and other imbalances of the nervous system. It’s deeply relaxing, rejuvenating and loved by all.

Shirodhara balances the doshas, soothes the mind and gives complete mental relaxation. Find shirodhara therapy near you.

6. Destress Your Life

There are lots of natural way to protect yourself from stress.

To remain healthy physically as well as mentally, live in harmony with nature. Go for Ayurveda procedures like Panchakarma and its associated treatments. Shirodhara, nasyam and massage will bring balance to the doshas. You can receive them at least once in a week or fortnightly.

milk secretion can come due to various reasons even in a virgin lady. Your suspicion based on this alone is not warranted. But explain to her that ur not a medical person, as u rightly did apologize and bring her back. Find the reason for the excessive milk and get her treated. All the best

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You do not mention your son?s age. You must meet with his teachers to find out, if there is something else happening to him. Often they open up to their teachers very frankly. If he is finding his studies difficult, find a tutor for him and that person will be able to help him. If he is in his teens, there will be quite a few distractions, apart from the hormonal imbalances. Is the home life normal and stable? It may also be because he may have learnt some wrong habits of learning or wrong foundation while he was younger. In both these cases he will need either a tutor or his teachers to help. He needs to be taught a smart way of learning rather than just working hard. You could also sit with him and help him, but with a lot of patience. You will come to know whether he is using any incorrect method to study. Take him to an academic counselor to check out for any emotional reasons for his performance.

Hello sir, I am 27 year old male. I have a strange problem which suffers me a lot mentally. My thoughts are not healthy and not constant. It seems my mind habituated to think negatively in every single thought. Give a situation, my mind use to think of negative side of it. May be this is the reason why i am very low in confidence and i am not able memorize what i read. Also i am not as energetic as others who are of my age. I am always dull and could not concentrate on anything. Please suggest any remedies. Thank you

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

We are all creatures of habit. If you form a regular pattern of thinking in the negative, then that is what you will tend to do. Perhaps it gives you satisfaction to be negatively oriented. Of course this will make you miserable because you are so focused on what is not there than what is there. You must now cultivate a positive outlook. Willfully chose to see the good side of things in life. This is a practice that will get perfect over a period of time, if you are consistent. You can see that it is demoralizing you, and you are suffering from memory problems. I have some exercises that will help. Exercise the positive by talking to someone and ask them to confront you each time you focus on the negative aspect. I don?t know if you are critical too. That will cause a social problem of isolation because people will not like to be with you or befriend you. This will then disturb you and make you more negative ? a vicious circle. Is this a family trait or where there influences in your upbringing that has contributed to this tendency. If so, work with a counselor to find the cause and to deal with it.
