Dear Lybrate user. Smoking weed as well as cigarette are harmful to the body in many ways and therefore you should not use both of them. You ask to any doctor everyone will say so because no one can advise you to take the better one. Quit both. Take care.

Hello Mady, Firstly, it is so difficult to understand problems in one go, it is easy to give solutions, but much important is the root cause of the problem. If you can find a qualified therapist then that may be a good idea for her. Some sessions will help her to bring herself back together. Therapist can help her to overcome the underlying (stressors) It is important that each stressor is addressed and dealt with appropriately. After few interventions she will be able to help herself in becoming normal again. Regards Stuti

Start doing exercises for cervical spondylosis. These will contribute for 50% in relief. Ypu can also opt for physiotherpy sessions. Proper Ayurvedic treatment taken within 1 year of apperrance of symptom will dimish the possibility of frequent repeated episodes añd further progression of the disease.

I get palpitations. I feel devastated. I do not want to talk to any one. I just remain in my room 24*7 lost in thoughts and imagination. I get angry at everything. I cry at everything. I can not concentrate on my studies. I throw my books away and sit at a fixed place. I do not want to talk to anyone. Sometimes the condition is such that I really do not get any emotion. Just emotionless. I do not know what I am feeling. I like sitting in darkness. I hate people around me. I feel lost in thoughts. What is happening to me.

Your many problem lies within you, so you can solve it easily, what it requires is someone who can show the way which leads to solution of your problem. Everyone is unique and everyone has some quality ,you need to recognise that quality after knowing that quality you will start loving yourself ,stop fighting with yourself. For few days forget everything only focus on yourself your liking, your hobby, you can go with your friend somewhere and when you become relax then analyse the problem, At that time you will be able to rule out the reason for your depression and after that if you feel the same and not able to diagnose the problem then you must go for medication along with counselling. In the meantime try few things when you get irritated or angry you can divert your mind some where else ,make any good friend and share your feelings. We can't change the thinking of people around us but we can change our approach. When some thing disturbs you write it on paper, best way is to avoid and involve yourself in some other activity. Take care.

Superb effect! You will arrest whatever damage you have been doing to your body and mind. You will save tons of money not spent on alcohol, and the huge medical bills that ensue with alcohol-related diseases. Quite a few of the organs could return to close-to-normal functioning, if you cease consuming alcohol. If you have children and a wife, they will marvel at the example you give of stopping such a difficult addiction and bring a lot of joy and retribution to their lives. They will now have belief in themselves. The wife will step out of her codependency role and the children will work out of their issues of Adult Children of Alcoholic Syndrome. You will sleep will return. Your sexual potency may be revived to normal levels. Your social image and self-confidence will get a huge boost. People will look up to you. Your job performance will improve by yards, and job stability will be ensured. Normally, alcoholics are good people, very intelligent and talented ? these will now get a chance to prove itself. Your economic situation and debts can all only get better. You may be able to save and give your family a good life, henceforth. There will be peace and harmony at home. There is a host of other benefits too that cannot be put down for want of space.

Please don't use any creams or lotions. It suppress the sebum secretion and block the pores which leads to bacterial contamination and results in more pimples. The other causes of pimples are hormonal imbalance, dandruff, diet rich in oil and non veg, poor hygiene etc. Treating acne in the right way at the earliest will remove pimples without any scarring and gives a long lasting results. But acne patients are more concern about the pimples and try all creams and soaps available in markets which creates much worse their condition. There are very good homoeopathic medicines for pimples which gives rapid and permanent results without any side effects. Along with the medicines there are some specific food which should be avoided for the effectiveness of treatment. You should take plenty of vegetables and fruits. Drink 3-4 litres of water. Homoeopathic cream topi berberis (wilmar schwabe) daily night apply. Internal medicines are better than external application.

I am a 26 years old and in a long distance relationship since 5 years. I am very much emotionally attached to this guy but we don't share a very good understanding. I get hurt very easily and cry a lot. Also because of my day to day dealing of people, I easily get hurt over what others do to me, I have lost trust in all, I have developed severe anger, I don't feel like sharing my feelings with anyone because no body will understand. I don't talk to my parents about what is bothering me. I have become silent and have bottled up all my feelings. My parents get upset and scolds me that I am always sad and don't talk but they never try to understand what is going inside me. Please help. Thank you in advance.

Since you get easily hurt, you are genetically programmed that way so ideal partner for you is someone who is sensitive more than anything. Else then you should realize, why do you get hurt most of the times. Isn't it because you expect a certain behavior from the other, you have this ideal image of other which is the root of all this frustration. There is nothing ideal in this world except the word ideal, everyone is a mixture of desirable and undesirable and one has to accept or choose the entire package. Neither you will change nor the other, so can this demand for the other to change go? take a counseling session if you feel so. Bottling up is still more hazardous speak out to a friend or a professional!

I have low memory skills so its getting difficult in my studies please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If you are young, you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night? s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Hi, dizziness could be caused due to spondylosis, anaemia, dehydration, high or low blood pressure, or low sugar levels in blood. In your case, I assume you have ruled out bp, diabetes, and anaemia. Drink plentyful of water, (around 3 litres) specially if you are working in a heated environment and see the difference. If not better, go to your physician for further investigations. All the best.

The psychologist who told there is no medicine to cure anxiety is a quack (non-medico), trying to portray he knows everything. It s easy for you to google and find there are wonderful medicines for anxiety, but should be taken with psychiatrist advise only. Anxiety occurs due to reduced Serotonin levels/ transmission in the mind (brain), when SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) are given, this is restored and the symtpoms resolve in 2-6 weeks. Kindly do not consult many quacks (non-medical, yappers) in this forum and in reality, who know nothing about medicine, but use prefix as doctors and behave like medical doctors advising innocent people like you wrongly.

You need Behavior Therapy for this. Your behavior and thought process needs to change. You have fears in approaching girls for which you need to understand what makes you to hesitate. You may not be having any healthy relationship with any girl in the past. This has made you insecure. When you approach girls, you fear that they may know about your sexual needs and ditch you. So you must approach them with a friendly attitude. Sexual fantasies is absolutely normal and healthy. But if they make you anxious and worried about your sexual potency then you need professional counseling.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. You could forget the location of items after keeping it somewhere. This is normal and happens with almost everyone. This forgetting happens due to preoccupation with other priorities or obsessive thinking. I suggest online counselling and cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

Let go of people when they no longer want you because by doing this you are making space for new people who may want to stay with you forever. You are young lot of girls will still enter your life do not run after someone who did not understood your worth. Focus on career and establishing yourself. Get yourself busy, try to be away from all painful triggers it will take time but everyone gets over it.

Dear , quitting bad habits are tricky but very easy task. There are several methods in psychotherapy to quit habits. Initially you need to show will power which we will impart through motivation therapy and mind power building therapy. Then slowly you learn to adjust yourself with the habitless regime. It will take time, but will be a success. Consult me for more online therapy and counseling. Take care.

Hi, I have a question, I think a friend of mine is going through depression. The cause for the same is she takes all the things negative on herself. This she is doing for years but never reflected but now this since she is thinking that nothing is happening as she wants, this negative behavior is reflected in her talks. I think this is a kind of depression only. Kindly let me know if this is a depression or only a behavior which will get resolved when the things get in her favor.

Right now there are no signs of depression but over time she can develop it. To me she is sounding pessimistic and it may be because of the reason you mention. She should ideally examine herself and see why she is experiencing so many failures in life. How much is she the cause? Very often we precipitate negative happenings towards us by certain factors in our self. If she is suffering from a rejection issue from some events in childhood, she could be living and sending out signals to attract the same. Kindly get in touch with me for some literature on this that could help her get out of the failure mode and shift to the success mode. With so many failures I myself will be affected. But if she can prevent the failures by certain adaptations, she could turn the events in her life to great levels of achievement.
