I can imagine how traumatic it is when someone close to you starts avoiding you. In different phases of life we need different kind of support. In your case, you tried to find comfort, care and trust in that person but in return you apparently did not received the same kind of affection and care. If he is not committed to you, and if he goes away from life, it is good for you in long term. Once or twice physical intimacy can not guarantee stability of the relationship. For depressive symptoms- get back to your normal routine. To relax yourself and stopping your worrying thoughts, do Yog Nidra, Pranayama & meditation. Go for a regular walk just to have exposure of first ray of sun, spend more time with your child, take sprouts, salads, fruits, walnut and curd along with your daily diet, watch good movies, listen to your favourite music, nurture your hobbies, take a vacation and visit beautiful destinations. After some time you will find much better. If still not improving, you may take professional help of a therapist/psychiatrist. All the best for your speedy recovery.

5 Proven Hacks to Keep Your Kids Away From Junk Food!

5 Proven Hacks to Keep Your Kids Away From Junk Food!
5 Proven ways to keep your child away from junk food

In India, 2% of urban children are obese, 8-10% are overweight and the number of children likely to be obese is on the rise. Junk food seems to be the major cause behind this recent trend.

Low in nutrient but high on calories, junk food has been found to adversely affect not only energy levels but also brain function. With junk food being easily available, it could be tough to keep your child away from it while nudging him on to eat healthily. However, there are ways in which you can keep your child away from junk food, and consequently lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular problems etc. Read on...

1. Always keep healthy snacks easily accessible
Children have a tendency to have foods that are visible and easy to reach. So, if you have packaged foods that your child can get his hands on very easily, it’s time to remove them. From vegetables, fruits to wholegrain crackers, such healthy snack options should be within the reach of your child. Place them in easy to reach food cabinets or on the lower shelves of the fridge, so that whenever your child feels hungry, he can go straight for them rather than opting for unhealthy food options.

2. Say no to junk food when at home
You have the power to create a home environment where you can control what can be eaten and what goes into your pantry. The home should be a place where healthy food should be in and junk food should be out. This way, you get to control the amount of junk food your child has as well as present healthier alternatives to him.

3. Don’t reward your child with junk food
It is very common for parents to reward their children with junk food. This shouldn’t be done as it only makes junk food an even more appealing option for children. Instead opt for non-food rewards such as extra pocket money, or a new toy etc.
Moreover, you shouldn’t use junk food as a bargaining chip either, i.e. by telling him he can have an ice cream if he eats his vegetables first. This would do more harm than good as your child would find processed foods more appealing and healthy food alternatives less appealing.

4. Lead by example
In order for your child to eat healthily, you need to lead by example. Limit your own consumption of junk food first. If you want to take your child away from junk food, you need to be a role-model yourself. Furthermore, it is good to include your child on your plans for healthy eating as it allows them to have a say in what they would and wouldn’t like to eat instead of foodstuffs being imposed on them. Make a meal plan together to figure out healthier eating alternatives for your child.

5. Teach moderation to your child
Don’t completely ban junk food as this move can backfire. This is because, by doing so, the moment your child gets the opportunity to have junk food items, he will most likely overindulge. On the other hand, teach him about moderation and the importance of having small quantities of this type of food from time to time.
Teaching your child to eat healthily is not an easy task, but is also not impossible to achieve. With a little bit of guidance and perseverance, you can easily achieve the goal of keeping your child away from junk foods.

My friend joined military force last year. He is telling me some problems like sexual dysfunctionality and low libido problems and also less growth of men's facial hairs due to exhaustive exercise and all. I am going to join the same soon. Please help me in this regard. Does Exhaustive exercise and physical work affect your sex potential?

Exhaustive exercise and physical work does not affect sex potential. It is important part of initial training. You must go ahead.

This is not by birth. It is up to you which way you want to go. Sexual orientation is far away from relationship. Relationship with a lady will make you a complete man having his family and responsibility. Sexual contact with another man will not give you anything except fulfilling your unnatural wish. Hope you understand.

4 Lessons To Take From ‘The King's Speech’ For Your Child’s Speech Disability

4 Lessons To Take From ‘The King's Speech’ For Your Child’s Speech Disability
4 Lessons To Take From ‘The King's Speech’ For Your Child’s Speech Disability

Back in 2010, Colin Firth delivered an emotionally moving performance as Bertie, the man who becomes King George VI, in the movie ‘The King’s Speech’. Bertie developed a speech disability at the tender age of 8 when he was forced by his teacher to write with his right hand instead of his left one. Traumatic experiences like this can hamper your child’s speech as well.

Read on to find out how lessons learnt from ‘The King’s Speech’ can help your child face daily life with confidence.

1. King George admitted his problem:

The first thing Bertie teaches your child is to admit he has a problem. Playing blame games or hiding from it doesn’t sort out the problem at hand. Teach your child to embrace his flaws and accept himself for the way he is, and not withdraw himself into a cocoon. This is the first step in eliminating the hindrance that is speech disability.

2. He had a purpose in life:

Bertie is a resounding reminder of the fact that no matter how we are, our lives have a purpose to fulfil. But if a problem stands in the way of that purpose, then we should know that the problem has to go. Instil a sense of purpose in your child. If he wants to be singer or even a leader like Bertie, then let him know he can.

3. He found his inner power:

Once you find your purpose and know that your problem stands in the way of it; you have to dig deep to find your inner power. Help your child to see past the disappointment, the shame, the embarrassment and humiliation to discover his inner power. Bertie couldn’t have done this without his wife and Logue (his speech therapist). So as parents you have to be pillars of support for your child too.

4. He persevered to achieve his goals:

Bertie may have identified his problem, found his purpose and power, and planned a path to success. But none of this would be of any use to him if he didn’t have the strength to persevere. Despite his initial stuttering at the national radio speech, Bertie didn’t give up. Bertie never gave up. He was a fighter, not a quitter. It is important to inculcate this sense in your child just as Bertie puts it, “Because I have a right to be heard! I have a voice!” Your child has the same right.

The movie ‘The King’s Speech’ reminds us that though Bertie was a king, in the end he was flesh and bones like the rest of us. He faces the problems we do; and we can learn a lot from him.

Hi doctors, I have visited a dance bar 2 months before, I fingered a women's vagina at that time. After that I doubt about hiv. Do I need to go for Elisa check up. Please inform me about this.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
If your finger had a cut prior to the act or if you licked your fingers after the act, then you must get yourself checked. If not so, get relaxed. But in future avoid these kind of risks.

My right testis is big in size like 13 times bigger than in comparison to left one. What should I do? Please suggest!

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
If there is only increase in size, no pain, then most probably it is'hydrocele. It occurs due to collection of fluid in between coverings of testis. It can be treated very easily by a minor operation under local anaesthesia. It is better to be operated on healthy side also to avoid recurrence on healthy side. I advise you to go to a surgeon nearby for physical examination and confirmation of diagnosis and treatment accordingly. Take care.

My father had recently get bypass operation and didn't quit smoking. What should I do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Motivate him for gradually stopping it by reducing the frequency of cigarettes per day. He may take nicotine buffered chewing gums for few days as a substitute of smoking. Gradually he has to reduce these chewing gums & ultimately stop it. If needed take help of a psychiatrist for de-addiction.
