1. avoid caffeine found in coffee,tea , chocolate,cola,and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. . [Use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, TVs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.

Smoking Reduces Penis Size and Causes Erectile Dysfunction

Homeopath,
Smoking Reduces Penis Size and Causes Erectile Dysfunction
Smoking reduces penis size and causes erectile dysfunction


We all know that smoking can adverse effects on one's health. However, not many people out there are aware of the fact that smoking can also affect their penis.

To understand the bad effects of smoking on your penis, you first need to know a little bit about how your manhood works. The penis is made up three large chambers that hold blood. When a man starts to get an erection, blood rushes into these chambers and the size depends upon how much blood flows into these chambers.
Smoking has been known to reduce the quality of blood circulation by clogging arteries. The arteries that connect the chambers in the penis are especially narrow and can very easily be affected by continuous smoking. Overall, one can experience some kind of impact on one's sexual performance.
Reduced blood flow or poor quality blood flow is the most frequent cause of erectile dysfunction or ed and smoking increases the risk of ed. The risk of smoking is increased in middle aged men or men older than 30 years. The penis is the quickest and first part of the body to be affected by clogged arteries and the oncoming of ed must be taken as a strong warning of potentially far worse problems such as possible heart attacks.
Recent studies have highlighted the fact that smoking increases the risk of impotence in men, especially in their thirties and forties. Individuals who smoke regularly often suffer from low sperm counts. 

Homoeopathy reverse the bad effects of smoking on your penis - homeopathic remedies help to increase enough blood supply to the penis and make the nerve strong. Identifying the main reason homeopathic remedy can easily regain the lost vigor. The average girth for an erect penis length from 4.5 to 7 inches are enough to perform a successful sexual intercourse. When the length of the erect organ is below 4.5 or 4 inches then we call it micro penis. Some reasons are responsible for this problem such hormone, masturbation habit from childhood, infection in the prostate gland, smoking etc. Homeopathic remedies are very helpful to increase the size or length of the male organ and make it strong. Homeopath can give good solution of that problem using proper homeopathic remedies consult me by clicking on consult option for homoeopathic treatment.

I am 25 years old and feel totally detached from everything primarily because of a change in my lifestyle 3 years back where I have seen people very different than me. Since then I want to be like them. Rich, smart, confident, etc. But because of this I am losing my focus, interest, have become indecisive, have lost confidence even more. In a way, I have taken life for granted and I do not care about anything. My love life sucks, so does my work life.

Goal is misery. Psychological goals split you into two, what you are and what you want to be. There is great amount of unrest in this. If you wish to be rich, draw a line and work for it single pointedly and you will get there. The problem is so many desires at a time. Love life also may suck as there has to be what should be in the relationship. Remember life is always in present, not in future. So what you are is imp. Not what you ought to be. Take care.

Is bright light therapy useful in non seasonal depression also. If yes how can be this done at home.

Bright light therapy is shown to be effective only I seasonal affective disorders particularly in mediterranean countries where sunlight is scarce or seen very less often. Also it remains only a adjunctive therapy in addition to medications and counseling. I doubt about its use in other types of depression particularly in indian subcontinent.

Practice yoga and meditation. You have to stop worrying about it, start concentration on your schedules and try repeat in your mind once at least. And recall frequently if you wish or follow a diary with plan for the day/ thing to do/ learn. Once you try this frequently you will remember better. Keep up up physical health and mental rest fully frequently. Practice mental relaxation and breathing exercises.

Hello! I want to study hard but not able to concentrate what should I do? Water time I got to study I was busy with social networking at going on phone. I want to make a proper schedule for every thing. May you help me please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, you must schedule your day giving a lot of emphasis to your study routine. You will get lots of time later on in life to do networking and talking on the phone. Do not lose this opportunity by messing up your performance. You are already displaying some loss of self-control and this could work against you in the long run too. 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, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. 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. If you plan any studying in the afternoon, do only written work, because your biorhythms dip during this time. For subjects that have lengthy portions you can reduce them by making short notes and studying smaller portions instead. If you still find it difficult to study do group study with seriously interested students. If you need some external pressure, then you can go for tuitions or attend tutorials. 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.

It is true that the you have symptoms of anxiety. It would have started around age of 23 which is when your personality is completely formed. I want to emphasise that it could be a part of your personality rather than psychiatric illness because it has not cause social, occupational or interpersonal dysfunction, at least from your question I can conclude the same I.e. Your are going to your job albeit with some problems continuing your responsibilities that is expected from you in all circles of life. So for this YOGA has been found to be useful or at least deep breathing exercise for 20 -30 mins a day.

Meet another doctor near you to review your condition and the medication. But whatever happens, do not self-medicate and stop medication even if you are feeling good because there has to be a sustained dosage for some time to get the brain used to that dosage and to encourage it to produce the same. I also recommend that you go foer counseling to develop new skills and techniques to cope with the daily scourge of life for one with depression.

I am 35 year old and alcoHolic person. My weight is 90 kg. I wanna stop alcohol. Any medicine for that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to meet with a doctor who will prescribe disulfiram, an antabuse, which when taken cannot be mixed with any alcohol. If you so much as consumed even small quantities found in medicines, you an have an adverse reaction and may involve hospitalization. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.

How Your Own Mind Work

M.Phil - Psychology, Master in Psychology, Internship
Psychologist, Lucknow
How Your Own Mind Work

- There are two level of your mind: conscious or subconscious.
- You think with your conscious mind & whatever you habitually think sinks down into your subconscious mind, which create according to the nature of your thoughts.
- Subsconscious mind is the seat of your emotions & is the creative mind. If you think good, good will follow; if you think evil, evil will follow. This is the way your mind works.
- Your subconscious mind accepts what is impressed upon it or what you consciously believe. It does not reason things out like your conscious mind,& it does not argue with you controversially.
- Your subconscious mind is like a soil, which accepts any kind of seed, good or bad. 

Your thoughts are active and might be likened unto seeds. Negative, destructive 
thoughts continue to work negatively in your subconscious mind, and in due time will come forth into outer experience which corresponds with them.
- Subsconsious mind does not engage in proving whether your thoughts are good or bad, true or false, but it responds according to the nature of your thoughts or suggestions. Example if you consciously assume something as true, even though it may be false, your subsconscious mind will accepts it as true and proceed to bring about results, which must necessarily follow, because you consciously assumed it to be true.
- The law of your mind is this: you will get a reaction or response from your subsconscious mind according to the nature of the thought you hold your conscious mind.

To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase" I understand" this phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to" shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener'can notered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view.
