Bodily damage is directly proportional to the number of cigs smoked per day. It causes lung cancer, stomach cancer, intestinal cancer, reduced sexual performance, sterility, chronic lung inflammation and so on.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

I have been feeling low and sad earlier in previous months from time to time due to some issues but dt I tried to ignore and frgt and get along well. Bt since past 2-3 months its like a constant thing now. I am numb and neither do feel sad or happy. If something gd happens m fine and if I have an issue or a fight or an argument m like numb. Like I don't even get angry nor anything and don't even want to discuss or say anything abt it. I was a social person but now m not. I don't want to meet or see any1. I don't wanna talk or even listen to any1. It irritates me a lot when someone is trying to explain me or is trying to make me understand abt my life. I feel like I should either walk away or bang d phone, to me its useless and just want to end it. I don't remember when was d last tym I laughed its been a month I guess. Nothing delights me not even music which was my all tym fav. I want to stay in my room n just sleep. I have 104/63 bp and 95 pulse normally. I feel tired and hopeless and sick. I don't know whether is it depression or not. But m no more What I was. Need help badly.

Dear user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Foods Good For Stress Management!

Foods Good For Stress Management!

When you're under fire at work, juggling multiple responsibilities at home, or going through a difficult time emotionally, these are the foods you should reach for. 

You should strive to eat these foods regularly (not just in times of stress) to help maintain mental, emotional, and physical balance in your body.

1. Dark chocolate

  • If you're one of these individuals who get a nice mood boost whenever you sink your teeth into a bar of pure, unadulterated chocolate, it is not happenstance.
  • There's actually a chemical reason called anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced in your brain that temporarily blocks feelings of pain and depression.
  • It's a derivative of the sanskrit word" bliss" and one of the great things about chocolate is that it not only produces this compound, it also contains other chemicals that prolong the" feel-good" aspects of anandamide. Chocolate has even been referred to as" the new anti-anxiety drug"
  • One study in the journal of psychopharmacology2 also revealed that people who drank an antioxidant-rich chocolate drink equal to about 1.5 ounces of dark chocolate daily felt calmer than those who did not.

2. Protein

A small amount of high-quality source of protein – like organic eggs, a piece of gouda cheese, or a handful of macadamia nuts or pecans – helps keep your blood sugar levels steady for enhanced energy and mood.

3. Bananas

Bananas contain dopamine, a natural reward chemical that boosts your mood. They're also rich in b vitamins, including vitamin b6, which help soothe your nervous system, and magnesium, another nutrient associated with positive mood.

4. Coffee

Coffee appears to affect a number of neurotransmitters related to mood control, so drinking a morning cup could have an effect on your general sense of wellbeing. Research has also shown that coffee triggers a mechanism in your brain that releases bdnf, which activates your brain stem cells to produce new neurons, thereby improving your brain health.

Interestingly enough, research also suggests that low bdnf levels may play a significant role in depression, and that increasing neurogenesis has an antidepressant effect! 3

5. Turmeric (curcumin)

Curcumin, the pigment that gives the spice turmeric its yellow-orange color, is thought to be responsible for many of its medicinal effects. Among them, curcumin has neuroprotective properties and may enhance mood and possibly help with depression. 4

6. Purple berries

Anthocyanins are the pigments that give berries like blueberries and blackberries their deep color. These antioxidants aid your brain in the production of dopamine, a chemical that is critical to coordination, memory function, and your mood.

7. Omega-3 fats

Found in salmon or supplement form, such as krill oil, the omega-3 fats epa and dha play a role in your emotional well-being. One study in brain behavior and immunity5 showed a dramatic 20 percent reduction in anxiety among medical students taking omega-3, while past research has shown omega-3 fats work just as well as antidepressants6 in preventing the signs of depression, but without any of the side effects.

8. Oolong tea

Sipping oolong tea might help you feel calm, as it contains high levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (gaba), an amino acid that helps inhibit the firing of neurons in your brain for an overall calming, anti-anxiety effect.

9. Fermented foods

  • Fermented foods like fermented vegetables and kefir are rich in beneficial bacteria that have a marked impact on your gut health, which in turn impacts your mood. Your gut is literally your second brain – created from the identical tissue as your brain during gestation – and contains larger amounts of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is associated with mood control.
  • Beneficial bacteria have a direct effect on brain chemistry, transmitting mood- and behavior-regulating signals to your brain via your vagus nerve. For instance, the probiotic lactobacillus rhamnosus was found to have a marked effect on gaba levels in certain brain regions and lowered the stress-induced hormone corticosterone, resulting in reduced anxiety- and depression-related behavior.

10. Kiwifruit

One kiwifruit contains more than 85 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin c, and that's good news for your stress levels. Vitamin c actually helps reduce your body's production of stress hormones8 while boosting your immune function (so much the better for warding off stress-induced illness)

Hi Doc, I have been suffering from an anxiety disorder with intrusive thoughts rendering more anxiety. I do not feel sad or depressed at all, I get random intrusive thoughts in unexpected situations, for example if am in a work meeting in a conference hall, I get a sudden intrusive thought which is" what if I say something abusive / offensive to my superior" and this thought although irrational triggers some anxiety and then there is that fear of having an anxiety attack which is whats more intense. I am PERFECTLY normal when the thought fades off or after we step out of the room. Please help me understand the nature of this problem. I have never acted upon my intrusive thoughts but the intense anxiety is troubling.

It is common problem and this is human psychology as our past experiences reflect on current mental status. Do any meditation process which you know is bonafide and can help you. Drink cow's milk in night as this is proven to improve clarity of thought sequence in mind. Avoid foods which are too spicy,oily, and bitter. Strictly take to vegetarian foods and fruits but avoid non-vegetarian foods which are not natural on human gastrointestinal tract and adversely mind,body and wellbeing

I have a great addiction problem. I call this addiction because whenever I stop smoking, I feel tons of Anxiety, Depression rising in my head. I felt so scared and all. I feel numb, dead and I can not concentrate on anything. Like I was not here. I feel life so distance away. Also I was diagnosed with Body dysmorphic amd have strong obsessions surfacing when I stop smoking. This continuous smoking cycle I am in makes me less caring, and I am a ignorant one ignoring every my duties as a man. I live in a very lazy way. I used Nicotex for sometimes and it helped me alleviate craving for someday.
