Try to drink three cups of chamomile tea a day when you're feeling anxious. Chamomile contains two chemicals that promote relaxation. Eat 2 cups celery, onions, or a mixture of the two, raw or cooked, with your meals for a week or two. Both vegetables contain large amounts of potassium and folic acid, deficiencies of which can cause nervousness. Keep a diary to track -- and then eliminate -- events that might trigger anxiety. Also make note of foods, as some of the things you eat may be responsible for the symptoms. Indulge in noncompetitive exercising, such as walking, bicycling, or swimming. It's good for you, both physically and emotionally. Meditate, pray, or indulge in a mental flight of fantasy. Do whatever it takes to give your mind a break. Breathe in, breathe out. Slowly, deeply. This is relaxing. Chat with a friend, a psychotherapist, a clergyman. Talking about your anxiety can relieve it. Make a mental list and check it twice. It doesn't matter what's on the list. This is simply an exercise in repetitive thinking that can distract you from what's causing the anxiety.

Yes. Cigarette smoking can reduce appetite apart from other many adverse effects on body. You should exercise, eat healthy and lead a healthy lifestyle. If unable to abstain you should take psychiatric treatment for kicking the smoking habit. It is very helpful.

This is not a disease and could be a defense mechanism to evade looking at your reality and shirking responsibility for your actions. It sometimes borders on magical thinking and the ‘Santa Claus’ wish that somehow your problems will be solved by someone who has great magical powers. As you know that is a pipedream and life has to be faced head on and it involves hard work. So roll up your sleeves and get down to brass-tacks. Nothing comes easy in life, and if it ever does then, ‘easy comes, easy goes’. You should not waste time dreaming like so except when you are ruminating on some bright idea that needs a final flourish of brilliance. Organize your life and establish some clear goals and set about achieving them, one by one. A schedule of steps to reach your goals is also advisable. If not, you could become dangerously disconnected from reality, in the long run.

Your mom may be suffering temporary amnesia from an emotional high, especially due to anger. You must discuss this with her doctor and see what s/he suggests. In the meantime have her talk to a counselor and continue with that for many months until he does better. She needs to learn how to handle her emotions and there are signs that her anger is too deeply pent up. This is not a good sign in the long run and she may have a severe outburst where she may not be in control of her actions and may inadvertently do something irreparable.

It is possible she is having migraine, as the symptoms like one sided headache and nausea/vomiting are going towards that. I suggest you consult a psychiatrist for further management. Consider getting a CT or MRI brain done to rule out other things.

There may be some things from your past that is looking for a resolution and unless that is done you will continue to remember the past. Do go for some counseling and identify what these items are and deal with them and you will experience some relief. This can cause undue discomfort and the memories may not be too pleasant either. Stress is not a good indicator for studies. Because of your age 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 callisthenic 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.

As you r telling the problem, there may be hoarseness of your throat. Avoid cold drink and curd etc. Do gargles of hot water with salt three times a day. Also at night hot milk adding turmeric, sugar ghee you may take 3 days.

My query is my husband lives in abroad. Daily he masturbates by forcing me to do sex chat. Having 5 year old boy & 5months old small girl baby with being neutral family I find difficult to chat. I am not at all interested to do so. This makes my husband angry & daily we fight. He always threatening about divorce. Kindly suggest me your valuable solution.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS

Sex chat can be done, if both partner's consent for it. It is completely your decision to do it or not. Try to persuade your spouse diplomatically for his requests. Tip: telephonic chats are better than sms/written chats as there are no documentary evidences which can be used later maliciously by anybody.

You are happily substituting one substance with another. In other words, you probably have an addictive personality for various reasons and may need top enter a rehabilitation program to completely deal with the issue of addiction. All these substances are known to cause damage to your system and are therefore ill-advised.

How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling
Psychologist, Jalandhar
How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you. 
Depressive disorders make one feel exhausted, worthless, helpless, and hopeless. Such negative thoughts and feelings make some people feel like giving up. It is important to realize that these negative views are part of the depression and typically do not accurately reflect the actual circumstances. Negative thinking fades as treatment begins to take effect. In the meantime:

set realistic goals in light of the depression and assume a reasonable amount of responsibility. 

break large tasks into small ones, set some priorities, and do what you can as you can. 

try to be with other people and to confide in someone; it is usually better than being alone and secretive. 

participate in activities that may make you feel better. 

mild exercise, going to a movie, a ballgame, or participating in religious, social, or other activities may help. 

expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately. Feeling better takes time. 

it is advisable to postpone important decisions until the depression has lifted. Before deciding to make a significant transition change jobs, get married or divorced discuss it with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation. 

people rarely" snap out of" a depression. But they can feel a little better day-by-day. 

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you.

Masturbation is almost certainly good for your sex life. Masturbating doesn't reflect on your relationship. Masturbation doesn't have the health benefits that sex does. Masturbation is not risk, free. There's no" normal" amount of masturbation. Guys can get hung up on whether they masturbate too much. But it's not how many times you masturbate in a week (or day) that really matters, says logan levkoff, phd, a sexologist and sex educator. It's how it fits into your life. If you masturbate many times a day and have a healthy, satisfying life, good for you. But if you masturbate many times a day and you're missing work or giving up on sex with your partner because of it, consider seeing a sex therapist.

Is it medically possible to erase a bad incident from your memory. And if it happened because of your own mistake and now you are unable to accept that you could do such a filthy act? I am regretting it badly. It's been a month and I cry for almost whole day, daily! I just can't accept that I did the act. Sometimes I feel like killing myself. Is there any way to completely erase it from my memory. I can not feel anything. No happiness no excitement nothing. I have lost interest in everything I do. I don't care if I am driving watching movie or bathing I keep thinking about that mistake over and over again and now I can't undo it. I don't feel hunger or thirst. I don't enjoy anything. Not even the things I was excited about before, I just keep on thinking about that mistake. I want to run away. I am completely detached from this world and I think about my mistake for every moment of the day, its out if my control to stop the thought and there is no relief. I just want to die. I don't know for how long I can handle it. Is there any way to relieve my pain. Can doctors erase that event from my brain? Can I get relief by any therapy? Can you help me forget that incident like it never happened? Can you take away that part of my life? Please?

Dear Lybrate user. You must understand repression. Your mind itself is capable to erase a memory which is painful or causing anxiety and worries. If it has not done, according to your mind, the memories are not that painful. In modern medicine, there are no medicines which can erase memories. But many medicines are there which can help you reduce those thoughts. Hypnotherapy can help remove the memories. Take care.
