Hi Mood swings and feeling low is common in female life.... Due to the hormonal imbalance. Following satvik diet and regimen like dinacharya and rituchary With walking early morning and yoga improves the secretion of serotonin harmone and keeps the mind happy and energetic.

Hello doctor. My sister is feeling restless since 1 week. Unable to sleep. Unable to concentrate on work and even a small sound is disturbing her. She is 38 years old. Please tell me what could that be.

Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ There are many psychiatric conditions with the symptoms you describe and I would need more information to diagnose the condition and suggest appropriate medications or investigations or both. I believe the insomnia may be the cause of her restlessness and poor concentration, however you might feel better to know that your sister is just having insomnia, for which there are many medical and psychological therapies. If the concentration problems as well as disturbed sleep is due to anxiety, counseling may be helpful, however more information is needed and a thorough evaluation will lead to a better diagnosis and appropriate recommendation.

Please note if any physiological illness is ruled out, suggest to meet a qualified psychologist who can assess through standardized psychological testing and interviewing if your wife is meeting criteria of depression or not. In case testing and interviewing shows depression - then psychiatric medicine for depression would help. In case no - then this problem is best solved by taking services of a clinical hypnotherapist. It is based on guided relaxation to help client master in coping with problems and can also accelerate the healing process in many physiological problems. Hypnotherapy is one of the safest, quickest and most effective forms of treatment for the majority of psychological and emotional problems.

Male 26 yrs, having fear that no one is with me although I live with my joint family of 11 members (including me). Say if I divert my mind in some work then its ok but post completion of that event the same thought of loneliness is on my mind and which makes me cry sometimes. Don't have much friends n which I have are busy in their own lives which is normal. Sometimes I feel like to kill myself but on the other hand I have my family too, also I am newly married but my wife doesn't feel to talk too much or express, she only keep finding demerits in others as she thinks she is so smart n other are idiot. 6 months ago I got married n We have hardly lived 60 days together and if bifurcate the days we had lived together then calculation would be 60 days = 50 days of fighting + 10 days normal (may be). No doubt I am trying my best in this relationship but her words are THE MARRIAGE WAS DONE JUST BECAUSE HER FAMILY HAD FORCED HER. I am emotional guy which means WORDS HIT ME HARDER THEN PUNCHES. Don't know how to get rid of tension. Even I had word with my family in this regards but all of them says it will take sometime to get all issues resolved. My wife is a very good liar, at the time of our marriage she said there was minor injury in her waist but on our wedding night she told me that she is suffering from Pott's Spine/ Bone TB. Although she had recovered alot from that time but if I ask something from her she says I DON'T REMEMBER even she forget what had happen 2-3 days back and take cover and says MAY BE MEMORY IS GETTING WEAK DUE TO THE MEDICINES OF BONE TB. Even after all this I am ready to accept her but she is very careless also had word with her in this regards and she said WE CAN SEPARATE IF YOU WANT BUT I WILL NOT GO MY HOME OR I WILL SUICIDE OR WILL GO SOME ANONYMOUS PLACE WHERE NOBODY WILL KNOWS ME. She's 23 and we both are from different regions I am from delhi and she is from UP but our family background are from same caste and religion, she is educated but I am still not able to trace out why this is happening to me. Usually I talk too much but with limited people but everyone is busy in their own life which good but I need some hope of light for my life. Please suggest me something.

If you are experiencing these symptoms more often, then you need to seek help. These are the symptoms of depression. Also, if you are thinking about harming yourself, you need to tell someone right away. Because depression can drain you of energy and hope, taking the first step can be hard. Start getting help for depression by telling someone how you feel. If you don't have the will to call the doctor and make an appointment, a friend or loved one can do it for you. Your doctor can also decide if you have clinical depression or if your depression is due to another medical condition. Your marital issues will also be taken care during your session with the psychologist or psychiatrist. Getting help for depression starts with reaching out. So please go ahead and seek help.

I want to write a book.
I want to lose weight.
I want to make more money.
I want to change the world.
I want to….

Most of us have a list of “I want to’s” but far fewer of us go any further than that.

Why?

It’s not because we can't, although sometimes we like to tell ourselves that.

It’s really because we don't want to bad enough.

“If it’s important you’ll find a way. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse.”

It’s time to take inventory and decide.

Who do you want to become? What do you want to achieve?

There’s no better day than today to start turning those “I want to’s” into “to do’s.”

It might not be easy and it probably won't happen overnight but your life, your mission, whatever it is you were called to do is too important for you to settle. Don't keep putting it off. Don't keep wishing and dreaming. Start doing.

And, when you want to give up… read this again and keep going.

Every success comes at a price (time, effort, attention). You just need to be willing to pay it.

Dear Roshan. The duty of your mind is to think. If you allow your mind to think without control, it will uncontrollably think and often wander into negative territory. The best option is to be creative and busy. Engage yourself in creative activities and sports. Along with that, learn to talk and think positive. Please consult a psychologist online for counseling, advice and therapy. Take care,

I am having a voice problem the words spoke by me could not be understandable to the another man to whom I answered it is because I have paralysis 3 years back which I recovered but the voice is not proper.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

5 Tips to Enjoy & Maintain a Passionate Sex Life

5 Tips to Enjoy & Maintain a Passionate Sex Life

Maintaining a healthy relation with your partner in bed is of utmost importance for your relationship, but it should also kept in mind that it is not the only factor which is important. Your sex life is one of the keys to a successful relationship. With the advent of time, your sexual relationship with your partner may start to fade and seem uninteresting. 

Here are 5 tips following which you can maintain a passionate sex life:

  1. Maintain overall intimacy: Regular good sex is important as it helps you to forget your daily hustle and bustle and end up in a different kind of world. Sexual intimacy is a key factor in living up your relationship. However, you should keep in mind that intimacy is not just confined to the bedroom. To maintain your spark, you must be intimate in other aspects of life as well with your partner. Preparing a meal together, dancing together, going for vacations enable to maintain intimacy in other sections instead of just the sex.
  2. Communicate: Tell your partner about your sexual preferences. Mention what you like and what is not suitable for you. Getting comfortable with each other is the most vital aspect in maintaining continued passion in your sex life. If you are not totally at ease with your partner, you may never find yourself experimenting or trying new moves in bed. Moreover, your partner is your counterpart and your most trusted companion. Communication at the level of friendship is also very important.
  3. Make Efforts and Moves: For people who are very busy and have got no time for their partners, a change in mentality is required. Instead of giving up on your sex life because of lack of time, make a move to find time and solve the problem. Taking time off will also relax your mind on account of which you can enjoy the sex better. Little things like dinner together, a shower together can be great boosters. So never ignore them. All you need is give some effort.
  4. Maintain a playful relationship: Always maintain a playful nature with your partner. Instead of pertaining to the bed, spice up your sex by choosing different locations. Indulging in sex on your rooftop under a full moon, or buying innovative, naughty sex toys allows you to gel better with your partner. Sex is enjoyed more when accompanied with laughter and fun.
  5. Be unpredictable: An ever static, same old routine dampens your sex life. Making unpredictable moves, which have got something new in them as these add new life to your sexual relationship. Try the funniest and most charming moves to surprise your partner. This ensures everlasting freshness.

Your sex life is an important part of your relationship and you should try your best to maintain the passion throughout.

Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol. Also , remember that smoking is harmful to your body Please remember that alcohol is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of alcohol can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol.

I have issue in understanding things, and getting an overall picture of things. Can not memorise well. Forgets easily.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Hello I would suggest that you continue the medicines. It takes some time however after that you will be able to experience significant improvement. Also most likely your doctor will decrease and stop fee medicines in due course. As far as counselling is concerned, it's usually quite helpful. If you felt that you didn't benefit from it, you should share this thought with your doctor who would make changes to make it better for you. Finally I would advise you to complete the course of treatment so that any chances of relapse becomes minimal. Good luck.
