Dr. I always suffer with white flow because of that I fell weakness body pain head ache many more things street.
By white flow I suppose you are referring to white vaginal discharge. It is a myth that vaginal discharge causes weakness, pain or tiredness. Vaginal discharge is normal. It's color, consistency and amount varies according to the time of the month and sexual arousal. You may be simply stressed out due to this misconception. That may be causing the weakness. Visit a psychiatrist to rule out depression or anxiety.

The success of every relationship is built on selective acts of blindness and deafness and bouts of forgetfulness

Honesty and transparency are laudable qualities in principle but when translated to reality the blinding light they throw on families and relationships is too harsh a glare to bear up to. Very few can take that kind of blinding truth in their stride

Hello, give her eupatorium perfoliatum 30 (homoeopathic medicine) 5 globules, twice a day for 3 days. She will be alright within 3-4 days. Let me know if you need any other help. How to take homoeopathic medicine? don't touch the globules, put it directly in to the mouth via cap of medicine bottle. Just chew the globules, don't take water with it. You should not eat or drink anything before and after 15 minutes of taking medicines.

Dear, aapko obsessive thoughts aatha hai, pooja ke samai. Obsessive thoughts mane ocd nahi. Aap un thoughts se darte ho, is liye woh thoughts baar baar aatha hai. Aap pareshaan hote hai, or jyaada pareshaan hote ho, aur thoughts fir aate hai. Aap to bhakth hai. Ache dil wale ho. Bura kaam nahi karte ho. Aap jo bhi karte ho, aapse bhagwaan karaata hai. Samaj lo, bhagwan aapka dushman nahi, balki dosth hai. Dosth kabhi dosth ko pareshaan kar saktha hai? vishwaas karo, bhagwaan sabh sambhaal lega. Take care.

I am suffering from stammering from the age of 5 now I am 18 but still I haven't cured it. But this time I am pursuing professional courses therefore I need to get it correct but I can't pay fees of speech therapists as they charge in thousands a month. Therefore please suggest me ways to cure it at home itself.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

How can we manage stress? I dont usually take stress easily but once it gets too much I turn out to be an outburst of wrath I am 18 and am a student I just feel headaches eye aches and I feel I cannot breathe once I lose my patience.

You need to attend anger management sessions with a counsellor. Anger is a healthy emotion as it helps yo to know that your needs and expectations are not being met, someone is misusing you or you are getting hurt. Yet if you resort to anger too often and get abusive, then it can become difficult as it will start affecting your relationships. Teens have been known for their anger as they are at the threshold of discovering themselves and establishing an identity for themselves in the world. They are also idealistic in nature and emotionally sway from one extreme to the other. Often they find the world an oppressive place, where people tell a bunch of lies and are often fake. Please meet a counsellor in your city to help you come out of this situation and develop a more realistic view of self and the world.

I am addicted to chewing tobacco I want to know how I can release my addiction give me few tips.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is Hans and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit these habits. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Both are tobacco products and will therefore have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco 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 consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to 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 tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming Hans. 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.

How to solve the problem of depression and dyslexia. These two diseases are connected.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, dyslexia, also known as reading disorder, is a learning disability characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence. Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. Dyslexia and depression are not related. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist.

Your weight gain may be related to emotional eating. If so I suggest that you go for counseling to learn to handle your emotions appropriately. Apart from that you need to increase your metabolic rate through exercise: ideally the aerobic kind and at least half an hour of vigorous levels. Reduce your intake of fried foods and high carbohydrates. Eat a lot of high fiber in the form of vegetables and fruits. Cut down on sugar and sweets. Eat a good breakfast, a smaller lunch and a very small helping for dinner. Have your dinner before 8 pm every day. Before every meal have a cucumber and drink a glass of water. Drink a lot of water during the day anyway. There is a very good health supplement which helps you reduce your weight without any side-effects and is very nutritious. You will need to contact me for that food supplement.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I am coward and I want to be very brave means bravest of all but I found it impossible to be brave.

Hi there ~ I appreciate your question. The answer to your first question as to why some are brave and why some aren't is due to the fact that they are raised differently and they have different life experiences that make their brains react the way they do when faced with a certain situation. I believe that it is therefore a conditioning process. Like I have mentioned before, your friends were not brave by birth itself, and so you can also be brave similar to them but not same as them. Your bravery may be in different aspects compared to them. However you are brave too and you should hone the kind of bravery that comes naturally to you. Although genetics (nature) plays a part in anxiety, upbringing and life experiences (nurture) also play a large role in anxiety formation. I recommend that you visit with a psychologist to get any other questions answered that you are not able to express in the written format in this forum. However I also strongly suggest that you visit with a neuropsychiatrist to get yourself evaluated for any generalized anxiety disorder and thus get help for the same by the use of appropriate medications. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Palakkad
Self effort is the first step in any of de addiction. So now you are mentally prepared to quit smoking which itself is 50% you are in track to stop it completely. Now you have to do few things. When the desire come in mind to smoke immediately change the position, just talk with your friend or family or prepare some fruit juice and drink. When you stop smoking completely first 7 days you may get headache, loss of appetite, constipation etc. During this time you must take homoeopathic medicine nux vomica 30 4 pills morning and night and also tabacum 200 4 pills daily morning. After 2 nd week you can stop all these medicines. Now your body is perfectly ok after complete stoppage of smoking in a week. Let me know your feedback.
