Am not getting to control the masturbation since 5 to 6 years am dng how to avoid this problem.
Masturbation is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity. In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. It will not affect you or your ability to have children in the future. If you wish to reduce the frequency of masturbation: It originates from brain, due to thinking about sex. Hence: ·     Do not watch adult material. ·     Concentrate more on your studies or work. ·     Exercise regularly.

I like to drink coffee everyday in the morning. So, which coffee is better coffee or black coffee? Please advise.

I like to drink coffee everyday in the morning. So, which coffee is better coffee or black coffee? Please advise.
1. Black coffee for weight loss If you are looking to lose weight, then you should definitely have black coffee as it has comparatively lower calories than coffee with milk and sugar. A cup of black coffee has just 4.7 calories while a cuppa prepared with milk and sugar has 56.6 calories. 2. Coffee with milk and sugar after evening Black coffee will energize you and give you more mental clarity than normal coffee as there is no milk or cream to slow down it’s effects. So drinking it after evening might keep you wide awake until late into the night which will disrupt your circadian rhythm. Taking the extra 50 calories instead would be healthier. If you already have issues with sleep, then don’t have coffee at all after sunset. Here are some tips to sleep like a baby. Alternatively, if you have something important to do and are feeling sleepy, then you should go for a black coffee. 3. Coffee with milk and sugar if you have acidity In case you have aciditiy, you should avoid having coffee (especially black coffee) as it has a very high pH. Also, having concentrated coffee can increase the concentration of acid in your urine. So make sure you have enough water or foods like cucumber to neutralize its effect.

I am seeing my friend bipolar in nature? his expressions, thoughts are changing immediately what should we do?

You cannot identify bipolar easily as a lay person. So without wasting time do take the person to a doctor and to a counselor for diagnosis and treatment immediately. You must make sure that the person cooperates because many times they do not believe that there is something wrong and would love to quit the medication. Complying with all the medical prescriptions and working in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learning coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges the person will face is very important. There are certain adaptations that will suit him during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime he can do certain things that will give him benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. He needs to particularly look at his levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that he may never be aware of now. Let him talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also he will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. He must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If his motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. He must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times he will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that he can do without the medication. This will set him back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned he is forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in him for a personal understanding.

CONTROL OF ASTHMA
*******************************
Most uncontrolled asthmatics think they are controlled

Two thirds of patients with uncontrolled asthma think that their disease is well under control. Asthmatics on proper medicines can not only live a normal life but also reduce their future complications.

Uncontrolled asthmatics invariably end up with complications related to right heart due to persistent lack of oxygenation in the blood.

Dr Eric van Ganse, of University of Lyon, France, in a study published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, examined 1,048 subjects with inadequate asthma control. When asked how they would rate their asthma control over the past 14 days, over 69 percent considered themselves to be completely or well controlled. Failure to perceive inadequate asthma control was more likely to be found in patients between the ages of 41 and 50 years.

The reasons are:
Most asthmatics fail to perceive their level of disease control and with an uncontrolled state they often feel that their asthma is under control.
In severe asthma, low blood oxygen levels might impair a person’s ability to assess their own breathing difficulty.
The notion of asthma control seems poorly understood by asthmatic patients.
Mild to moderate asthma limits the activities of a person and over a period of time they take that as their normal limits.
