My voice is too low to be heard. My friends suggest me to increase my pitch. Sometimes I am not audible to my friends also. Suggest me some tips to improve my voice.

Hi! I am 21 years old and I have been smoking for past 3 years. I started with 2-3 cigarettes a day then near to a packet. Now I have reduced it to 2-3 again. Is there any way that I can detoxify my body completely and quit smoking?

MD - Alternative Therapies, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hello Happy Singh , For deep detoxifying effect take 4-5 sittings of steam suana . Some home remedies are - # consumption of citrus fruits. # chew cinnamon stick whenever you feel the urge to smoke. # chewing of neem or basil leaves is also effective. # But complete detoxification and to kill the habit you need the support of medicines adviced after detailed case taking , for which you can consult me. Regards, Dr. Heena

Cramps generally occurs because of hampered blood circulation (like prolonged folding, sitting etc) or impaired electrolyte levels. add milk and fruits in your diet and keep your posture changed after some time.

Sleep is very essential for all. Lack of which can lead to impaired concentration. I suggest you indulge in some heavy physical activity during the day - e. G. Walk or exercise. Don't have heavy meals at night. Avoid coffee, tea after sunset. Donot take naps during the day. Make a schedule for studying. Donot use mobiles in bed. Keep them out of reach. The light from smartphones keeps our body clock away. If all these fail, you may need to see a psychiatrist.

Though your general physician might have got the symptoms under control. Anxiety and depression are under the speciality of psychiatry. They more trained and have the expertise to manage the medications on a longer run, with better symptom control and without harm, for example drugs like alprazolam, clonazepam are avoided by psychiatrists on longer run, because they can produce cognitive deficits, personality changes, etc. I suggest you also get a psychiatrist opinion to make sure the medications prescribed are adequate and appropriate.

It is possible for a person with bipolar disorder to experience ups and downs in mood, i.e. Mania and depression. Medication you mentioned are used to treat mania. If you are feeling sad, other medications are required to be added.

My daughter age is 20 is really depressed after a failed relationship and has been getting really low grades in class. She goes through prolonged bouts of crying every night and does not want to go out. She feels she has been duped by her ex- boyfriend (who is close to all her friends) and she has been defiled. How can I help her?

You daugher is very sensitive. She is upset and in depressive thoughts. Please sit with her. Please listen every statement. Better to take her outside. Cook different items of food every day. Give some work when she feels loneliness. Develop a very good friendly environment in home. Better to consult psychologist. She must explore before him. She needs psychological counselling and behaviour therapy. Better to consult avery good psychologist. My best wishes.

I'm so depressed because of a love failure. I'm not able to forget him, even though he have done so many brutal things to me. Something is pulling me back to forget him. I lost my studies for a year because of mental depression. And I'm always thinking of ending up my life. I can't even think of a new life. I have been spending my 6 six years in my home itself. Nowhere to go. And nothing to move on. In getting mad of thinking about my love in my home. And sometimes I'm too aggressive. What should I do? Please tell me a way to forget him.

No body is worth dying for, period. Your life is too precious and if that guy had not appreciated it, you dump him. If you had broken up and you are still thinking about him, it only means that you loved this boy very much. I hope you were not the one to break up with him. If it was, then you have played a game and now you have regrets. The clock cannot be turned back again, I suppose. The trouble is that you want to attempted suicide over this love affair. This means that you might have entered into a symbiosis and him leaving has become life-threatening. That itself might be the reason for the breakup. Boys want a relationship where independence is respected and there is no clingy behavior. You have got to look into this aspect of your personality. Are you becoming too dependent on the boy and therefore demanding? This is not a welcome feature for a boy to want to maintain this relationship. You must develop yourself to become independent and responsible. Maintain respectful distance. There are three important developments in an individual that creates an autonomous personality: intimacy, awareness, and spontaneity. Of these, awareness is of great importance: it will help you know yourself internally and to also make you conscious of other people around you. This person is able to meet her needs and that of the other in a balanced manner. You must learn to do this soon. If you resolve the symbiosis, you will do really well. Meet with a counselor and describe your longings, needs and wants, openly. Take your parents along and let them describe your entire life till now and the counselor will get an understanding of your plight. Remove everything that is a reminder of this boy in the meantime and start working on your development. Life is too precious and no one is worth dying for. Demonstrate how you will look after yourself and work on doing that. Learn independence skills and do a personality development course too. By sitting at home you will brood and think of this boy more. So get out and socialize and that is how you are going to meet other boys, and make a new relationships: this time do not hurry and learn lessons from the past.

I'm 43 yrs. Old male and suffering full body pain and weakness since three years like cervical spondylitis, lower back pain, tennis elbow, shoulder pain etc. I never took any painkiller or medicine for these.

Your besty appears to be self focused than unconditional lover. You are trying to please him. Let him learn through counselling that both of you are important to maintain a relationship and not over expecting but to respect each other and overall be ready to sacrifice for each other. You need relationship counselling,

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.
