I am not feeling well, feeling tired, feeling pain in whole body specially in legs please suggest some medicines.
Hello lybrate user, - more than medications you need some physical exercise or adopt yogasanas that will keep your body active always - look at what exactly causing this tiredness to you - try to sleep within 12am daily and not to cross that time. - do apply mahanarayana taila to thelegs and even to full body daily once before bath - take triphala ras 20 ml with 20ml water daily twice this will make you feel better. Thank you.

There is no such thing to my knowledge at all. Nightfall is the body?s natural way of excreting the buildup of semen, and when it does not it is reabsorbed. There are too many fallacies built up among young people about masturbation too. It is better if you check with someone who has the right information than to rely on books and your interpretation. Look at how long you have suffered believing this information and 32 years later you are clarifying the facts. This fact should now help you to dispel these myths and live life fully and happily with authentic knowledge.

What type of foods should I eat to have a healthy and disease free life. As I have acidity problem. And can I have tips of how to improve my memory any exercise or something else, as I heard that to take daily 7 leaves of tulsi with water 1 glass, is it true?

Take plenty of salads, fruits and sprouts. Avoid fatty and spicy foods. To avoid acidity avoid alcohol/nicotine/excess of tea/coffee. For improving brain power solve puzzles and reasoning. Repetition of lesson and recalling in mind and referring immediately to source/book in case of any doubt is a good way to enhance memory. Live a de-stressing life with early morning awakening, doing yoga/meditation, daily jog/exercise, listen soothing music at evening, some time for rest, recreation and socialization and adequate sleep. Taking tulsi is a good habit as it has certain medicinal properties, but it does not increase memory.

Hi lybrate-user, Getting easily agitated and angry is not only troublesome for you, but harmful for relationships. Your underlying cause can be unraveled by a competent counselor/doctor. Do not expect that with time this will disappear on its own. It can only aggravate with time. Either meet a counselor personally or at least seek consultations on phone at the earliest. Best wishes

Depression - Symptoms And Homeopathic Remedies

B.H.M.S, M.D.(Hom.)
Homeopath, Kolkata
Depression - Symptoms And Homeopathic Remedies

Depression is a psychiatric disorder that is characterized by constant feelings of sadness, low self-esteem and loss of interest in daily affairs. Depression is most likely caused by hormonal imbalances, genetic problems, drug addiction and grief.

Depression can be characterized by its symptoms:

  1. You will experience constant feeling of sadness
  2. There may be sudden outbursts of anger
  3. You may have difficulties in concentrating and executing various tasks
  4. Constant feeling of tiredness
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Changes in weight
  7. Social withdrawal
  8. Difficulties in sleeping at night

Homeopathy focuses on treating disorders by rooting out the cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms. Homeopathic treatments also do not cause any side effect to the body.

The various remedies that are used to treat depression are:

  1. Causticum: It is used to treat symptoms of depression that occurs after losing someone. It can also help in episodes of frequent crying, mental dullness and forgetfulness.
  2. Arsenicum album: This remedy is used to treat excessive worrying. Usually people who worry about not meeting their expectations benefit most from this remedy.
  3. Aurum metallicum: This remedy is used to treat symptoms of suicidal thoughts, despair and low self-esteem. These symptoms may aggravate during colder months.
  4. Cimicifuga: This treatment is recommended if you feel extremely upset and gloomy. If you face symptoms of neck pain and headaches during depression, then this remedy might help you.
  5. Phosphoric acid: If you face symptoms of introversion and loss of appetite, this remedy should work wonders.
  6. Sepia: This remedy is recommended when you face symptoms of loneliness, anger and are easily disturbed. It may also cure symptoms of digestive disorders during depression.
  7. Pulsatilla nigricans: Pulsatilla nigricans is used to treat symptoms of whining, jealousy and mood disorders. It is usually recommended for women who have depression along with menopause or puberty.
  8. Kali phosphoricum: This is used to treat symptoms of emotional stress, lack of concentration and fatigue resulting from depression.

A Note of Caution: Even though the names of the medicines have been listed above, still it is advisable to consult a trained homeopathic practitioner as the potency and dosage of the medicine will differ from person to person and can only be decided by the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized homeopathy and ask a free question.

That might be frustrating for you. You might not be able to live a life of your choice and not accomplished what you wanted to. However, allopathic treatment can only offer symptomatic relief with some side effects of the medicines but no long term resolution. Alternative treatment like homeopathy and ayurveda offer gentle and holistic treatment which is safer and remove the problem from its roots. Counselling is another such intervention which has helped many individuals suffering from anxiety and sleep issues by teaching them practical tips and techniques to sleep naturally and also learn how to manage stress and tension better without losing your equilibrium. You will be able to modify the unhealthy and irrational thoughts due to which you feel anxious and replace them with healthy and rational thoughts and behaviours which will make you feel confident and liberated from within to take on tasks which caused anxiety before. Exercise every day and do deep breathing and pranaymas for calming down and feel functional.

Sir I am doing hard work on studies but I will forget answers very soon .so can you help me how to increase my memory power.

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 lybrateuser. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. The more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are" effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

My one friend use to smoke rarely like once in 3 weeks and when I ask him why he smokes he says I was tensed, so.please tell me is it fine for him. Tk smoke sometimes or I should stop him completely, plzz help.

Psychologist,
Hi, lybrate-user. Smoke is definitely not a solution to any problem, it may definitely add problems. It will be great if you could help your friend to look at a more practical solution rather than relying on smoke. Also, will power is a strong component here. He needa to acknowledge the harm smoke is causing to his health. Just by you asking him to quit smoking may not help. A logical thought may break his irrational behavior.

I am 55 years old. Suffering from depression/anxiety/bipolar disorder. Taking medicines since 1979. Have no pleasure in life. Also suicidal thoughts. What is the remedy? how to get better?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, you will have suicidal thoughts but not if you were also working on these issues with a counselor. For all of these many years you have delayed getting better by failing to combine therapy with medicines. The challenges of everyday living pose a major stress to people and they learn to cope with it through various adaptations, techniques, and tools. In the case of the bipolar condition your adjustability is more difficult than the normal population. Apart from this there are many issues of the mind that medication cannot address, and these are ideally worked out in therapy. Please put yourself on a tight time-schedule with exercises, interesting activities, functional occupations; and being a contributor to your family and society at large. Eat healthily, sleep well, and go for regular counseling. There is a lot of anger that is not being dealt with for many years too. Suicide is not an option even though it may appeal to you because of your struggles. You can live a good life subject to your doing more in the manner explained above. Life will then look full of hope; and many of your desires will and can be fulfilled.

Dear lybrate-user, don't worry for some people break ups helped them after that they got better ones, from teenage to till marriage love is very common, but every individual thinks that it is only her problem it is not, some people they express some people will not, when you love you need to build family 1. To have family life we need money 2. To earn money we need to have good job to get into this cycle, most important don't spoil your career, true love always comes back.

I have pain at right bottom of my head above right ear. I regularly smoke one or two times a day. But I try to stop smoking. Whenever I got pain usually I get relief by smoke. If I avoiding smoke it get start pain. Pls help me. It is brain problem or simple pain or major issue.

ENT Specialist, Solapur
Hello, You get relief after smoking that is the temporary effect of tobacco on your body which indirectly acts as an analgesic and the pain subsides for some hours. As per symptoms you will need an otoscopic examination of the ear which is possible only if you visit an ENT specialist. Rest I can advise you is try to quit smoking because it is harmful for your lungs and body and it will also subside body signals such as pain and other symptoms which are seen in some diseases. For detailed history taking and treatment you can take my online consultation here: www.Lybrate.com/dr-prashantpawar Thank you.

1. depression treatment doesn't work the same for everyone. 2. It also doesn't work immediately. You need to stick with it . 3. Many people don't recover with their first treatment. 4. Antidepressants are effective. But you may need to try more than one -- or a combination -- to find what works for you. U should not stop taking your antidepressant on your own. Some can cause withdrawal symptoms -- and you run the risk of your depression coming back, too. 5 . no negative thinking 6. talk about ur problem with some one u believe , ur family members , friends . Interact with them 7. start the day with a walk or jog .exercise releases chemicals in the brain called endorphins, which boost your mood. Studies have shown that regular exercise -- even just walking -- can make you happier, build your stamina, and boost your self-esteem. Start with 10 mts with friends/ family member or any body u like 8. Sticking with treatment is the best way to prevent it from happening again or controlling a relapse before it becomes serious. 9.Avoid a. Stress. b. No alcohol. 10 .Stick to your treatment plan and be willing to ask for help. Keep in touch for further help and advise Good luck
