My mom 30 years old sometimes getting pain in her body and feet I want to know the solution.

My mom 30 years old sometimes getting pain in her body and feet I want to know the solution.
First of all, make sure that your mom gets time for some relaxation for 15 mins. In those 15 mins, let her lie on the bed with no noise around and make her close her eyes. Then you apply some almond oil softly with the tip of your fingers around both her eyes for 10 mins and on her feet for 5 mins. Make the room cooler with air conditioning or high speed fan! spread some fragrance by a good quality room freshener and tell your mom to sleep with her hands open facing the ceiling. After 15 mins she will feel rejuvenated with much less pain! she can then take hot tea with ginger and restart her work. The most important thing. Do not give or let others give her any stress or tension which can scare her and eventually that will reflect in her bodily pains and the cycle will go on! so, now you take care of your mom like a mom daily for 15 mins and see the difference.

Hi there ~ Feeling scare while traveling alone may not be unusual however if you feel different and not able to function as in do other things during that time, please consider social phobia and read on. People with social phobia tend to: Be very anxious about being with other people and have a hard time talking to them, even though they wish they could Be very self-conscious in front of other people and feel embarrassed Be very afraid that other people will judge them Worry for days or weeks before an event where other people will be Stay away from places where there are other people Have a hard time making friends and keeping friends Blush, sweat, or tremble around other people Feel nauseous or sick to their stomach when with other people. Social phobia is generally treated with psychotherapy, medication, or both. Psychotherapy.

Why should you concentrate on depression? Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. The key to depression recovery is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Take things one day at a time and reward yourself for each accomplishment. The steps may seem small, but they’ll quickly add up. And for all the energy you put into your depression recovery, you’ll get back much more in return. Don’t feel guilty about anything. So, don’t seek for the symptoms of depression and just throw out the thought that you are depressed.

Hi, I am 26 and my getting married this November. The problem that i am facing is of anger. I get angry a lot and that too without any reason. Sometimes i feel like i'm exploding in my mind. I want to get out of it. I really want to get rid of this. I want to feel happy. I love the person m getting married to but i burst out to him all the time. Sometimes i feel like i do not want to go home. I really want to know what is happening in my mind. I get irritated easily with the small issues. M just not happy with the behavior of my family. I feel like they don't love me. I feel like ignored at my own house. Please help me or suggest me what to do to feel positive. I want to get rid of this anger.

First of all, don?t look at anger as a bad feeling. It is a good feeling and a very important emotion. The problem you are having is that it seems to rise in you fast and without any reason; and of course the inappropriate expression of it. But in your query, you have stated the possible reason: your family doesn?t show much affection towards you and because of that you may be suffering rejection from them. How true this is I do not know but several times I have found that there is a problem in perception. Since you are getting angry without reason it seems to suggest, that you may have experienced the rejection a long time ago, if it is true. Let us assume that it is true, then you can have a talk with them and find out how valid this feeling is and why they did that to you. Give them actual instances when they behaved like that. This is one of the most important suggestions I have to give you: you must express your anger just like I suggested ? talk to them about your anger. There may be a lot of sadness underlying the anger, and that will have to be dealt with as a second round after the expression of anger. If they are the ones who have arranged for this marriage, then they have done you a good turn by finding someone whom you can love! But this anger of yours won?t help. Remember, today many marriages have been breaking up due to the low tolerance level of the man and the woman, among other things. Anger can destroy relations. My advice to you is to talk with a counselor and get directions and advice about emotions and how to express them. Anger expressed well, will bring terrific results. Of course you cannot get angry without reason. The counselor will help you identify the reason, which I think is about rejection, anyway. Vigorous exercise will expend the energy related to anger but it will not actually deal with it.

I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1.Yash,it was 16 when you sstarted smoking.Just think it yourself that was this the age to start smoking.This Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking .You just think how much money of your parents you have wasted till now. 2.Just ssee the poor people around you who cant make up for one time meals.Just think that if you were not ssmoking ,how many of them would you have fed during last 2 years and try to feel that happiness that you must have got and now you are deprived off. 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I uggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. 6.Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking. ALOM VILOM PRANAYAM daily for 15 minute any time during the day. Report after 30 days There is always written on every cigratte case that CIGRATTE IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH.It itself proves that we smoke only due to a habit or compulsion although understanding its after effects but reluctant to leave this monster habit.I dont think there is a single advantage of smoking cigratte apart from its primary action in a Habitual smoker that it creates mental alertness immediately after smoking.But disadvantages of smoking are countless like Ageing,Lung and mouth cancer,Breathing prolems,Resp.allergy like Asthma,Heart insufficiencies and many more.

I'm a 20 year old male, recently having severe anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, and fear for no reason. I've been noticing new white hair on my head daily, and my eyebrows seem to be thinning quickly. I also feel great stress for no reason and breakout in nervous sweats randomly. Any help is much appreciated, curious if there is some connection between the hairloss/color change and the stress, or if its just an anxiety disorder. I should note I've always had a slight anxiety issue, but never this bad, worsened in the past several months.

Becoming less social is the main problem. You must realize that your present household situation is not going to change. Mother with an illness, brother with a mental illness these areas are to be constant. Two other areas which you can change is your marriage and your stress level. Once you accept the fact that the present scenario will change when you marry, your stress level will reduce. But this option could take time. Therefore, the alternative is to engage yourself in social circumstances, games, hobbies etc so that the" thinking" time is reduced to minimum. Take care.

Dear, 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. 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. I can help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for your decision not to smoke. When you are only one cigarette a day, it is easier to stop it fully. Sometimes stopping cigarettes give a mild headache. It will disappear after few weeks, if you don't restart smoking. However the site of your headache indicates, it might be an ENT problem. Consult ENT doctor.

Nicotine patch remains in direct contact with the skin of the person who wants to quit smoking and nicotine is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream and the person does not crave to smoke and thus lungs are saved.

Alternating between being happy and sad as you go through life's ups and downs is normal, but if you're sad most of the time, it could be a sign of being depressed. Depression takes the joy out of all your activities, and can make merely getting through a day feel overwhelming. The first step to overcoming this problem is to understand its symptoms and causes. Not everyone experiences depression the same way, but here are a few questions that can help tell you if you are depressed or not.

Do you feel helpless?
It is common for depressed people to feel helpless and that everything around them is out of their control. As a result, the person may either stop participating in activities all together or try to control things they can't. Both situations are cyclic and lead to further depression.

Have you lost interest in daily activities?
The feeling of helplessness is one of the main reasons depressed people lose interest in activities. Another reason is that activities that were once enjoyed now do not seem interesting enough. In most cases, this leads to the person isolating himself and withdrawing from all his family and friends.

Do you often feel angry or irritated?
Depression is almost always accompanied by irritability and anger. Small annoyances that would usually be overlooked quickly, take on an inappropriate significance. This can lead to poor impulse control, substance abuse and anxiety disorder. In most cases, anger and depression are related by the person trying to take accountability for things that are out of his control and hence feeling helpless.

Is there a change in your sleep pattern?
Your sleep quality is very closely related to the way you feel. Depressed people often suffer either from insomnia or oversleeping. Depressed people can have trouble going to sleep as well as staying asleep. This can cause drowsiness and lethargy during the day. Sleep apnea is also linked with depression. As you can imagine, if this is left untreated, it will only worsen your depression.

Do you feel tired?
When the body does not get adequate sleep, you begin the day feeling tired. Thus, depressed people often feel fatigued and complain of a number of muscle and joint pains. This is because the body has not had enough time to regenerate cells during the night. This is usually complemented by complains of persistent headache and stomach aches, both of which are emotionally connected to the way you feel.

The nature of depression is such that it lowers a person's self-esteem to the point of interfering with his ability to seek help. Hence, if you have a positive response to the above questions, it is time to address your problem before it worsens.

If you treasure your wife that much that you don't want to lose her, then it is a good sign. You must first of all consciously get that girl out of your mind, especially during sex, and her memory will slowly atrophy. Then it is important to explore a variety of sexual poses and acts that will be new and different to make your experience with your wife rather unique and highly pleasureful. If you seek the guidance of a sexologist he may help you along the way with different approaches but the person may also help you with all he five factors involved with the act: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual. This multi-dimensional approach will be wholesome and very gratifying and bring a lot of adventure into your sex life. Your history will fade away into oblivion, forever.

Yes, you must seek professional help at once. Perhaps you can take your parents with you to meet with a counselor. Suicied is finally enacted under an impulse and a beautiful life can be snuffed out just like that by an impulse. Even if you want to stop the attempt it might become too late. Therefore take the necessary precautions now. There is a lot to look forward to with the right help. Nothing in life is so serious that it can drive you to kill yourself but you can if you do not reach out. You are probably angry about something that needs serious discussion. Once the anger is out of the way, life will look and feel really different. Right now you are obsessing about it. If you continue it for long it will one day feed into an impulse and you will feel compelled to act on it. That time it will be rather difficult to reach you itself. You must also pray and have faith in god. Never ever withdraw from people right through all this. Keep yourself occupied and mix around with people who are your friends.
