Sir I am facing problems of memory loss and concentration lacking. This is due to side effects of allopathy antidepressant orange 5 mg medicine that I was taking for last 8 years. Now I am not taking. I have been advised to take ginkgo biloba 1x. It is improving my symptoms. Sir I want to know if I leave this medicine after 1 month then will I get the above problems back or not? For maintaining normal memory and concentration, how long I have to take this medicine? please reply me by homeopathic expert only.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Continue gingo biloba 1x tabs for 3 months. After that you take the medicine alternate days for a month. Then once in 3 days for a month. Then weekly once for 2 months. Then you can stop. Immediate stoppage can reverse the symptoms. Tapering the dose is the correct method. And also you must think positive always that my memory is good. Everything become alright even if I stop my medicines. Be cool be relaxed. Nothing to worry.

Every man claims that women are mysterious and it is difficult to guess what is in their minds. All of you who have ever pondered what women want must read this article since we’ll reveal some seriously unexpected things that will help you make women happy. Let’s jump to the relationship secrets we want you to know:

1) Women Love Caring Men
When you pat a puppy or kiss a baby, the woman sitting next to you develops interest in you because you’ve shown your sensitive side to her. A woman is a nurturing personality naturally and by using this tactic; you can win her heart in no time.

2) Women Love Courteous Men
No matter how brave a woman is, she still appreciates when a man takes time to play his masculine role. She is definitely capable of carrying her shopping bags or opening the door but when a man does this for her, she acknowledges his masculinity.

3) Women Love Well Kept Men
Yes, clean hands and feet as well as getting dressed to please her is an important part of a healthy and lasting relationship. Spend some time in knowing what she likes on you or what suits you more. If your woman likes you when you wear a tie, don’t mind wearing a cool tie with a casual shirt.

4) Women Prefer Men Who Wear Red
This tip is tested by gender psychologists and they have revealed by different studies that red is a powerful color and men who know how to wear red (sometimes just a glimpse of it) can win a woman’s heart. Although red is never going to make you look nicer or kinder but yes it will add to your sensuous appeal.

5) Women Love Men Who Make An Effort
When you plan her birthday party, buy her a unique gift on the wedding anniversary, or even just give her a call to know how her day was; she seriously feels herself blessed. You’ll wonder that pleasing women is quite an easy job and you don’t need a lot of money to make them happy. Simple gesture and care can take you to the special corner in their heart.

6) Women Love Self Served Men
No doubt, women have nurturing personality by nature but when you ask them cut your fruits into small pieces, they don’t feel good. They have not given birth to you, yes they prepare your food but they are not responsible to put that food in to your mouth so don’t expect too much and stop being a man-baby.

7) Women Love Men Who Notice Small Things
When they buy a new pair of shoes or jeans, or set a new vase into the corner of the bedroom; it is your duty to notice the change and ask about it. Appreciate those little efforts and give your comments about it. Women like listening positive comments and it is a quick and nice way to connect with them on an emotional level.

Just in case you require tips on how to keep your woman sexually happy, please fix up an appointment with Dr. Vinod Sablok.

What is depression. What's are symptoms. What's is cause .how it is possible I can save to depression.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
•A depressive disorder is a mood disorder that is characterized by a sad, blue mood that goes above and beyond normal sadness or grief. •A depressive disorder is a syndrome, meaning a group of symptoms. •Depressive disorders are feature not only negative thoughts, moods, and behaviors but also specific changes in bodily functions (like, eating, sleeping, energy and sexual activity). •One in 10 people will have a depression in their lifetime. •Because depression can lead to self-harm including suicide, it is important to note that one of every 25 suicide attempts results in death. •Some types of depression, especially bipolar depression, run in families. •While there are many social, psychological, and environmental risk factors for developing depression, some are particularly prevalent in one gender or the other, or in particular age or ethnic groups. •There can be some differences in symptoms of depression depending on age, gender, and ethnicity. •Depression is only diagnosed clinically in that there is no laboratory test or X-ray for depression. It is therefore crucial to see a health professional as soon as you notice symptoms of depression in yourself, your friends, or family. •The first step in getting appropriate treatment is a complete physical and psychological evaluation to determine whether the person, in fact, has a depressive disorder. •Depression is not a weakness but a serious illness with biological, psychological, and social aspects to its cause, symptoms, and treatment. A person cannot will it away. Untreated or undertreated, it can worsen or return. •There are many safe and effective medications, particularly the SSRIs, that can be of great help in the treatment of depression. Treatment- A variety of treatments, including medications and short-term psychotherapies (i.e. "talking" therapies), have proven effective for depressive disorders: more than 80 percent of people with a depressive illness improve with appropriate treatment. Not only can treatment lessen the severity of depression, but it may also reduce the duration of the episode and may help prevent additional bouts of depression.

I'm a chain smoker, and want to quit. But when I didn't smoke a day, I suffered from headache and that is not acceptable for me. Can you please help me out of this?

Smoking has many adverse effect on different system in your body. Congratulations that you are thinking about quitting it. Now you need to figure out the best strategy that works for you. Following information may help you. Along with biotin patch or nicotin gum. This is what I would advice. One of the few habits which takes very systematic approach and needs lot of support and individualized strategies to quit successfully. Data such as - since how long are you smoking and how many cigarettes a day you consume are important information. Also have you tried quitting it earlier? how successful were you? and what are your personal reasons to stop smoking? all these are also important part of your success strategy. Broadly speaking your reasons for not smoking work as your motivator. The stronger the reasons behind not smoking the higher the motivation and thus higher the chances for you to be successful. Also your body will have a withdrawal symptoms and it is very important to come up with strategies and solid plan to counter these withdrawal symptoms. These strategies should be tailor-maid as per your need and situation. If you consider these and many other individualized approach and if you have a solid support throughout your journey. You would be able to make a shift from being a smoker to a non smoker. Along with this eating healthy and having a good routine for eat and sleep is also very important. Exercise plays a huge roll when it comes to staying positively motivated and managing cravings. I hope this helps, wishing you very best.

Hello, I am married, I am fully depressing alone always nobody talk with me since from the year only my cell phone is my life. Why this life is too long? Always I felt like that I can't get any solution bcz around me r all fake people's I can't come out from them. What to do.

You are young and have a long life ahead of you. I would suggest to take positive steps towards your well being to lead a happy and fulfilling life. In any given situation we have two choice 1. Accept the situation as it is and feel bad about our self and do nothing to change it. 2. Accept the situation as it is and try and figure out what you could do so that you get the result you want and deserve. I would suggest you to take charge of your life. Think how would you like to feel when you are 40 years. What would make you proud of yourself. What will give you sense of contribution and accomplishment? You may try following things to help yourself come out of your current state of mind. When our mind is hooked into either past or worried about future it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive thinking and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. I would suggest few things below. If you are unable to follow these things suggested here you should consult a psychologist. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. If you are not able to take charge and bring yourself up then I would recommend consulting a psychologist and work with him or her for few months and learn how to manage your stress and resolve the current issue as well. Know if you need any further help. Feel free to contact me if you think I can help you in any way, Hope this help wishing you very best.

I am a 21 years old man. Studying now. Been smoking cigarettes from roughly the age of 16. Recently took a chest x-ray in which the doctor was quite vague in telling me about it. He just answered that if I stop now i'll be good. What do you think? and p. s its really hard to quit.

It is not necessarily the length of time that is the problem, it is the age at which you started smoking. During the teenage years the nerves are still taking its final form and any smoking or drinking during this time affects their normal development and may even destroy them. The damage mostly has to do with memory, taking responsibility and decision making. If you were someone who inhaled deeply, much lung damage is expected too. Your doctor is right in that if you stopped smoking a lot of damage can be reversed except the damaged brain cells. It is therefore a wise decision to quit as early as possible and minimize the harm. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. But try and try again until you succeed. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Move from your past if it gives you sadness only. You have to be optimistic for everything happens in your life if you want to be happy and want to distribute love and happiness to others. Be positive and keep yourself happy with the things which gives you light of happiness. Try to do yoga and meditation but in limited area it will gives you positivity and believe in your self. What you want from from life is very good it will surely help you. If you want any further help you can contact us.

Lybrate-user. Stress is very subjective phenomenon. So lets discuss how to overcome it. Try to analyse your thoughts coz abnormak thoughts many times create problem for u. And you must b keeping thinking lot about them. So you need to control your thiughts and for that start meditation and yoga which would strengthen your mind. Cultivate your hobbies start following an organised schedule for your day talk to your frndz except about steess. Give quality time time to your family. Write your good thoughts and achievements in a diary. Write your plans in a diary. And start brisk walk everyday or at least 4days a week.

I am a male aged 60. Mentally and physically of 35. Want to be female as well as my male penis and other male parts should be as it is. So in looks I should be male, with the female and male body. Is it possible? I am at Ahmedabad, having two children, both are married. Yet want to enjoy sex as a female.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may be a very confused individual. At the age of 60 years finding someone to relate to you as a female itself is a monumental task – I would imagine near impossible. You may have to resort to self gratification, which may not be so satiating. Further you say you want to retain your male apparatus. Do you not think that that will put off your counterpart, if you succeed in finding one. Sometimes some men feel like a woman in a man’s body and that is an unfortunate situation. However in spite of that you cannot be both sexes. I think you need to talk to a sexologist and sort out your conflict ridden body and emotions to seek one or the other recourse, not both.

Sir, it is unlikely because of medicines. It is due to your skin dryness. You can start applying Venusia Max cream twice a day for full body. Dont use soap everyday while bathing. When you want to apply soap, you can apply Zyndet bar. Please dont use scrub or loofah during bath and when you wear any wollen clothing, use a layer of cotton clothing in between

Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Friendship is the fuel that keeps life interesting. Imagine a robotic life where you do not have anyone with whom you can chill or unwind at the end of the day. Friends are people with whom you can be yourself without having to worry about needs and requirements or judgements, at least most of the time. They are the layer that lies between your family and the rest of the world and provide you with a balance of sorts as far as insights, outsider perspective, advice for meeting challenges and unadulterated enjoyment go. 

But many times, extreme shyness and an introvert nature can stop people from making friends easily. So how can you initiate friendships and keep them close? Here are a few tips!

  1. Understand Shyness: First of all, understand why you may be shy and how it makes your brain work. Shyness strips you of your security when you are faced with a new place or face. Also, it can lead to dismissive or avoidant behaviour, which keeps us from approaching people and learning more about them. Also, it keeps us anxious and preoccupied and makes us think that we will be met with rejection if we try to initiate friendship. Sounds vaguely familiar? Read on to know more.
  2. Eye Contact and First Impressions: The first way to initiate a new friendship is by making eye contact and following it up with a smile before the person in question averts his or her gaze. This is an unspoken language that is almost always answered similarly.
  3. Greeting: You can now approach the person and start by saying hello. It may be someone whom you have been seeing on your way to class or in the office cafeteria or even someone who lives in your building. So chances are, that this person would have noticed you too. Introduce yourself and ask for the person's name.
  4. Acknowledgement: Use the person's name often to show that you are acknowledging the friendship and ensuring that a bond begins to settle between the two of you from the word go. Offer to introduce this new friend to your other friends as further acknowledge of this new friendship.
  5. Information: In a new friendship, it is crucial to find common grounds without breaking the barriers of privacy. So ensure that you ask neutral questions about hobbies, family, education, work and other such issues without asking the when, where, what and how of things that might have to be explained by sharing personal details. In this way the person in front becomes more comfortable.

Be aware of the reasons that stop you and build your confidence when it comes to approaching people for friendship!
