hello doctor. Some one in my circle is very much addicted toward alcohol. He is about 30 years old, he consumed alcohol in large amount. And and perform unacceptable activities. After drunk he can't able to take a step. He also abuse family member. please suggest what step taken to get rid off. Is it right to admit him in any hospital like (nisha mukti kendra).

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, before taking him to any rehabilitation centre kindly try the following therapy at home:- mix 30 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q in a bottle of 2litres of water. Keep that medicine mixed bottle isolated. Whenever the patient asks for water to drink give him that medicine mixed water to drink. Since the medicine is colourless, odourless & tasteless, the patient would not be able to identify the medicine present in water. He will easily drink 2 litres of water in a day. Thus he will intake the medicine along with water without even knowing it. Repeat the same process everyday. This medicine shows effective result by decreasing the craving for alcohol within just 2 weeks.

hello lybrate user, do regular exercise, like brisk walk in open air. mindfulness meditation at least for 15 mins and pranayam especially anulom vilom for 5 mins is effective in stress reduction and increases positive thinking. have enough sleep, 7-8 hrs of sound sleep is good for physical and mental health. have healthy diet. if nothing helps then take homeopathic treatment for constant anxiety. it's safe, natural and holistic way of treatment. homeopathic medicine strikes at root of problem to ensure complete relief. medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details of patient; such well selected remedy gives complete relief and cure. message back for proper consultation.

Dear Lybrate user Low self-esteem is the cause behind this. Stress also plays a role in this. People having low self esteem often seek approval from others. When others talks to them understand them when they be with people they like this gives them happiness and pleasure. When they do not get it and get rejection ignorance etc then they get stressed anxious and even depressed. This is a habit and mind training is required in such cases. When the self esteem self concept get stronger when you are focused then you get self centered and emotional stable and also you get more success in every aspect of life. I would recommend you to have a psychotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy. You can contact me for more information and also a free voice consultation. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I went through the question and I do understand your problems. The duty of mind is to think and if you are unable to provide any creative task to your mind, it will always think. Naturally the thinking process will drift towards negative teritory. To control thinking you should always try to be creative, entertaining yourself and be busy. During work, you should be passionate and dedicated. Always try to learn something from the work which makes your mind engaged. I hope my answer is satisfatory. I am further available for clarifications. Take care.

It is seen that people who are repeatedly dominated and bullied over are usually submissive in that relationship. To regain control and be able to fend off such unwarranted interactions, it is important to know what stops you from talking assertively and what are you losing and gaining in the bargain. Learning some assertive skills would go a long way.

Dear lybrate user, nice of you to share your concerns bed time is a time for relaxation. If you do have any issues of concern think of them and an how to deal with them before you go to bed. Say a prayer or sit in silence for 5 minutes when you feel totally relaxed then go to bed. A good nights sleep is important for physical, emotional and mental well being. Do consult a medical doctor for the physical symptoms mentioned. Wishing you all the best.

Cocaine Detoxification

Medical Detoxification is a process that systematically and safely withdraws people from addicting drugs, usually under the care of a physician. Drinking alcohol or using drugs can cause physical dependence over time and stopping them can result in withdrawal symptoms in people with this dependence. The detoxification process is designed to treat the immediate bodily effects of stopping drug use and to remove toxins left in the body as a result of the chemicals found in drugs and/or alcohol.

While at the present time, no proven pharmacologic therapy for cocaine addiction exists, several kinds of medications have been used in the detoxification of cocaine. Withdrawal from chronic cocaine use produces anxiety, depression and intense cravings for the drug. Several types of medications address these issues in different ways.

Antidepressant drugs such as desipramine or a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine have been used to reduce cocaine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Benzodiazepines, tranquilizers such as Diazepam, have been used to reverse anxiety induced by cocaine withdrawal. Amantadine, a drug used to treat Parkinson's Disease, may be an effective treatment for cocaine-dependent patients with severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms and may reduce cocaine craving. Bromocriptine, a drug that works on the brain's dopamine system, has been used to decrease the craving for cocaine during detoxification and to reduce mood disturbance.

Propanolol, a beta-blocker drug used to treat high blood pressure, may be useful for severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms, as it slows down the effects of adrenaline, thereby calming the body's "fight or flight" response to stressful situations. This type of drug has been used to treat general anxiety and anxiety associated with alcohol withdrawal. Propranolol's lessening of symptoms such as palpitations and sweating has helped reduce cocaine craving. Its use, however, is not risk free in patients who have taken cocaine and can be associated with decreased blood flow to the heart and other changes that predispose patients to arrhythmia and a severe increase in blood pressure that can lead to a stroke. Delayed toxic effects are possible. Any use of beta-blockers in this setting requires careful monitoring and caution

One of my friends bf wants to do sex with her. But she do not want to do it before their marriage. Thats the reason their relationship are in a very bad condition. Her bf always upset .he starts ignoring her. What she can do .to save their relationship.& she is virgin too. So she is little bit scared to do sex. Suggest some solution.

hi, Ask your friend to talk to him and understand what sex really means to him, listen to him patiently acknowledging his frustration along with explaining to him about her concern and why the decision is important for her. If your friends bf really loves her then he will have regard for her concern and will be supportive and understanding. But if he is continuing his distancing and hurting behaviour then she needs to consider whether she's willing to bear with such kind of forceful and manipulative behaviour for rest of her life or she can look for other options .

Dear lybrate-user, why do you want to abort the child? think before you decide to abort. Think of the advantages of aborting and disadvantages of aborting. The same exercise for continuing the pregnancy. Remember that there is no option with all advantages only. For the advantages of that option you need to carry the disadvantages along. You have another 4-8 weeks time to think and to act on these options. At the end of this exercise, if you plan to abort for the advantages of it, here are the disadvantages. Your health may be at risk during abortion. If the uterus does not heal well or get infected, there are more chances for tubes to be blocked. That means you may not bear a child later on your life. Remember that abortion is legalised in india. No questions will be asked. You can go to any government gynecologist and demand abortion without giving reasons. You can sign the consent form yourself, because you are major. Discuss your options with your close friend/boy friend. You will be able to hear your voice. Or write them slowly on a piece of paper and send it to me. It will help you to make informed decisions. Don't be worried about the disadvantages of your decision. You have many strengths in your life with which you can deal with those disadvantages. All the best. Get back on private consultation after doing the homework exercise. You have time. With knowledge, you will make better decisions.

You must forgive for your own sake. The poison that is meant for the other is going to eat you up like a consumptive disease. Forgetting is trying to remove a memory which is, near impossible. However, if you express the emotions behind the memory it is possible to make the memory less powerful and therefore less harmful. You can also deal with that past in what is called Gestalt therapy and remove the pain of the past. Meet with a counselor and get the necessary help to enable this. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear doctor I am facing more depression, lack of confidence & others. Can I take PRODEP 20 TABLETS? For this problems.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

It may take years to get the problem solved by medicines but may take 2-3 months by surgical procedures in which they will relive the fibrosis at temporomandibular joint causing restrictions in opening mouth. The surgical treatment may cost you about 20,000 Rs by an cosmetic ENT surgeon.

It is not related to madness or unsound mind. Everyone have two dimensional thoughts. One is good and another is bad. No need of shy it is your interest. Do not feel it is wrong. You feel insecure and inferiority complex. When we are not perfect we satisfy in dreams. It is common thing. Hanuman chalisa reading it is a very good habit. Absentmindness it is common. Concentrate on your work. Relax yourself. Do not be confused each and every aspect. Do not think too much about past incidents. Feel always happy. It will give very good motivation. Do sincere work each movement of the life feel always confident. Do not feel it is my mistake and etc. Be share all your personal feelings with your friends and family members. Be happy all time. Spend for your relaxation. Go movies and temples. Visit new places. Enjoy every movement of life. You are always normal. Your thoughts are normal. It is common factors. Ok all the best.
