How to avoid smoking? My friends always have urge to smoke as they r practicing from before 15 years. Its quite irritating to someone who is standing next to them.

Tell your friend that a boyfriend or a girl fried will be averse to talk to him as they can't bear the offensive smell from his mouth. Also tell your friend that his face will become dull, wrinkled and sickly apart from suffering many life threatening diseases at a later age. Homoeopathy has a treatment for this, which acts internally without adverse effects. 1. Homoeopathic medicines help in causing dislike and aversion towards tobacco. 2. If a person stops smoking, he may experience some discomforts, constipation which can be termed as'withdrawal symptoms' because of these symptoms, the person may revert back to smoking. Homoeo medicines help in overcoming such problems. 3. Homoeopathic medicines do not cause adverse effects. 4. Homoeopathic medicines are not addictive like some other medicines and drugs take arsenic alb 200---once daily in the morning.

Do not mind the mind. Let your random thoughts come and go. Do not wrestle with them, if you do, you are only increasing the momentum of thoughts. There are patterns and phases to sleep, some accumulated thought residues{insecurity, fear etc etc] buried deep often come to surface after a while. Let it go out of your system. Relax. This will pass.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Smoking can affect your appetite. Muscle gain is ideally attained with exercise and a proper diet. If you have hyperthyroidism, then you will have a problem gaining weight. Then there is the possibility that your level of metabolism is higher than normal due to many factors one of which is stress. So it is worth meeting with a counselor and talking about the stress and leading a more composed life.

Love is such a “mysterious phenomenon” and many people put it all down to their own personal destiny. But in reality, it has nothing to do with fate, it was all related to your subconscious, which was quietly figuring out whether the person matches your checklist or not. The truth of the matter is that if you’re able to grow more aware of your subconscious mind’s specific criteria, you’ll be able to quickly determine why you fall for some people and not for others. Of course each person’s checklist is different and unique. The items on your list depend on your: •Values •Beliefs •Past experiences •Background •Previous relationships Seek help from a counselor for better guidance.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi. My anxiety started from light headedness. Few weeks I became alright. I thought its general light headedness then I went to general physician. He did all blood tests in which my hemoglobin was low, my fbs was on borderline. Thyroid profile was lil bit high. Vit d was also low and cbc result was fine so he prescribed me medicines for all of that but suddenly I got panic attack and I that this lightheadedness is occurring due to cancer, infct my all tests were done as I hv mentioned above. Do not know y I got stuck on cancer word and I got panic attack. Although my treatment is going on for the same. Will I be fine? My question is only this all happened due to light headedness. So light headedness is part of anxiety? I mean is light headedness initial level of anxiety? Although I hv heard dat palpitations, fear etc happen first in anxiety. Thn y light headedness? please reply.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your feelings and your worries are not false. When some symptoms occur we tend to think negative outcomes first. So you thought of cancer. Here you have to educate yourself for various causes of lightheadedness. Analyse deeply when you felt it for the first time did you change your schedule suddenly? Or you were dehydrated? Or were you having any infection? Think and write down all the possible causes. You are now over thinking about it. So first pause and think of the causes of lightheadedness. You will be fine once you treat this. It may be due to your imbalanced thyroid levels or vit D level too. So don't worry. Also read about anxiety also. I would suggest you to get your vitamin B 12 check also. Have healthy diet and drink lots of water. For further consultation you may take appointment with me.

I feel very empty and depressed and directionless!just dont know what is right or wrong ,i just dnt want to wake up or do anything and i always have a sickening feeling inside like i am gross and i sick

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are certainly depressed and it is probably from being very angry. If you think that you cannot do anything with the anger (which incidentally is not true, but you believe so), then you will tend to turn the anger inwards toward yourself and blame yourself, and start to beat yourself black and blue. Anger, being energy, and when turned around will stifle your natural energy to make you feel lethargic and listless. Can you identify with the anger? If so, express it to someone, preferably to a counselor. Once this anger comes out, it will seem like a heavy weight has been lifted off of your back and your mood will return to normal. In the meantime, follow some simple guidelines: don?t sleep late or during daytime hours, exercise vigorously every day, eat proper food, go out and socialize, expose yourself in the sunlight for at least 30 minutes every day, be active and constructive, and if you?re spiritual, do spend time in some prayer too.

Dear madam cough syrups do have components to give you sleep ie technically speaking sedatives are included in small doses in cough syrup instead of taking cough syrups as sedatives, I would suggest you two alternatives alternative one: consult a neurologist. Alternative two: follow the following steps which will solve most of problems associated with sleep 1. You have to first have a natural circadian rhythm a. Try to go to sleep and get up at the same time every day. B. And wake at the same time 2. Food a. Do not take coffee or tea after 6 pm b. Milk can be taken 3. Light a. Cover the windows and doors with curtains and avoid light b. Avoid watching tv lying in bed c. Avoid mobile phones / tablets 4. Exercise a. Walk for 45 minutes after dinner b. Take a bath after that try the above simple techniques for two weeks and let me know how much you have improved.

Certain antidepressants can help prevent anxiety and reduce the frequency and severity of panic attacks, but are not used for immediate relief during an attack. Frequently used antidepressants are the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, and Zoloft.

Hi I am 30 year old man When I get angry, or too little, then I'll work with hand and leg is trembling. 2 minutes also can not have sex very lives weakness.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Hi lybrate-user, Do Moderate exercise can help in increasing sex energy to a great extent. Simple push-ups or 30 minutes of regularly walking or jogging can work wonders in building sex power. Sex and exercise both make a person sweat, increase blood circulation, diminish stress and burn calories. They make one feel better and confident. Exercise helps in making sex more enjoyable and satisfying. The exercises of the legs, backs and chest enhance the release of testosterones in men and women. It also increases the flexibility in one’s body in order to accommodate in different positions. Men need cardio exercises in order to have a sustained erection Certain foods are loaded with nutrients that boost sex drive and increase one’s staying power. Eating these foods help in increasing bedroom power. They help in increasing the production of sex hormones. Vitamins and minerals keep one sexually healthy. The diet that provides energy to sex contains vitamins, minerals and other nutrients required for a healthy body. Zinc is one of the most important ingredients for the proper functioning of the prostate glands of a man. It helps in prostate infections, prostate cancer andhelp sperm production. Oysters, almonds, cashew nuts, sesame seeds, and walnuts are best sources of zinc. Nuts and seeds are also rich sources of arginine, an amino acid which is essentially required for healthy erections and sperm production. Fruits like apples, apricots, blueberries, cherries, papayas etc. Play a vital role in keeping the body sexually healthy. Fresh and leafy green vegetables like asparagus, carrots, cucumber, and spinach are the best source for most vitamins and minerals. Dates – Eat 5 – 7 dates everyday for a week to see surprising sexual stamina. Aswagandha – It is a gift for Indians. Consume Aswagandha lehyam (paste) 10 grams for instant sexual stamina. You can find the result in few hours. You can find aswagandha in the nearest ayurvedic shop. Chocolates – There are antioxidants in chocolates. These are good for the body as it increases the excitement. The chemical called phenylethalmine is there in these foods and enhances the sexual drive of the people. Pumpkin seeds – These are rich in zinc and this is good for boosting the sperms of men. This again improves the deficiency of testosterone in some men. The seeds are full of vitamins that give energy to the libido of any human being. Fishes – The sea water fishes are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and these helps in improving the libido. This enhances the sexual stamina and the sexual urge for men and women. Eating of fish can diminish depression and give new hope and bright mood. The brain function is also improved with the omega 3 fatty acids and hence is good for all over improvement of sexual urge. Some such fishes are – trout, Tuna, Sardines, Herring, Anchovies, Mackerel and Wild Salmon. Onions – These are vegetables with aphrodisiac properties to help the libido. If you think you have low libido, you can take this by crushing them and frying them in butter. You must add honey with the golden onions and eat them in empty stomach for improving the sexual drive. Oysters – Oysters have been used since a long time as a love drug. Casanova and Cleopatra had one thing in common. They had a love for oysters. Oysters have been known to have been used by the Italian romancer to seduce women. In fact, research has proven that oysters are a good love drug. Oysters improve the levels of dopamine in the body and they are said to boost the libido levels both in men as well as in women. Oysters are rich in zinc, which is essential for the production of healthy sperms. Watermelon –Some experts have touted watermelon as the latest love drug. Since it contains citrulline amino acids, it helps relax the very blood vessels that enhance the sex drive in a person. If you want to get your partner in the mood, then prepare a watermelon sorbet and share it with him. Asparagus –Not only does asparagus have a suggestive shape, but it is also rich in a Vitamin B known as folate! This fosters the production of histamine, which is important for a healthy sex drive both in men as well as in women. If you want, you can even grow your own asparagus or buy it fresh from the Farmer’s Market. Avocados ­ – Not only are avocados known as fruits that increase the brain levels, but they are now being touted as love drugs. Celery –Eating celeries may be the last thing you would think of to boost the libido, but research goes to show that it increases the pheromone levels in the sweat of a person and makes the males more attractive to the females. Figs – Legend has it that figs were a hot favourite with Queen Cleopatra. The ancient Greeks also thought it improves the fertility levels of a person. Banana –This fruit that is rich in potassium can help boost your libido and your sexual performance. Red hot chilli peppers –Naturally hot and spicy, this food is known to boost both the libido of a person, as well as their sexual performance. Eggs –Eggs can help balance the hormone levels of a person and improve the sexual performance of a person by decreasing their stress levels. Consult a psychologist for same.
