How to live peacefully without any other tension? Does hairfall occurs due to tension and stress? Suggest me some diet to control hairfall and daily life food. I am 17 years old completed 12th I am about to join bachelor's course. Thank you.

How to live peacefully without any other tension?
Does hairfall occurs due to tension and stress?
Suggest me some die...
1. Wash hair sparingly and use a good-quality shampoo. Washing hair too often can leave hair dried out, leached of its natural oils, and may damage your hair. Aim to shampoo your hair at most every other day or even only twice a week. 2. Try shampoos that do not contain sulfates or parabens. Sulfates are the chemicals that make shampoos lather up. Parabens are preservatives that cause irritation and eye problems after prolonged use. Both of these chemicals aren't healthy for you or the environment so try to use shampoos with natural cleansers 3. Use conditioner that matches your hair type, length, and treatment damage. A good rule of thumb is to condition every time you shampoo your hair, although very processed or dyed hair probably needs a little more love than natural hair 4. Be careful about using hair care products with too much protein. Too much protein can leave your hair feeling desiccated and brittle. While protein is the building block of healthy hair, use conditioners that come with balanced ingredients. 5. Rinse your hair with vinegar before shampooing, twice a year. Doing this helps to make your hair look shinier and cleaner; plus, it treats dandruff. Use 1 part vinegar (preferably organic apple cider vinegar) to 3 parts warm water, then rinse and wash your hair as normal. 6. Moisturize your hair. Use five oils: almond, castor, olive, coconut and lavender oils. Mix together equal proportions of each. Alternately, use egg oil. Apply to the hair and leave in for four hours prior to showering out. Repeat twice a week. 7. Eat healthily. Give your hair the right amount of vitamins. Since hair is made of proteins, eat a balanced diet rich in lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet will ensure hair that looks and feels better. Make sure you get plenty of vitamin C. This vitamin strengthens hair. In addition, iron helps transport oxygen to blood vessels, zinc grows and repairs tissue, and omega-3 fatty acids grow healthy hair. Give your hair some time to show new brilliance. What you eat will not have an immediate difference on the hair you already have, but it will help with hair that is newly growing. 8. Remove stress from your life. Physical and mental stressors will keep your hair from realizing its full potential. Stress can cause hair loss, so try not to let stress overcome you. This means finding healthy emotional outlets for your stress: yoga, biking, meditation, or other forms of exercise all work well. 9. Tips Stress has a bigger impact than you think. Meditation can be very helpful, as well as exercise. --Put an oil on your hair at night before going to shower because this makes your hair shiny. --Do not sleep with wet or damp hair. This will weaken the follicles and make hair strands brittle. Blow dry in low heat at the roots before bed. --Most people use more shampoo than they need. Depending on hair length, you probably only need about a quarter sized dollop. --Don't blow dry hair too frequently. Frequent blow drying, or use of other heat products, can stress your hair. --Rinse your hair under cold water after you finish shampooing and conditioning to make it shine and look even more luscious than it was before. •When towel drying, don't rub the hair vigorously. This splits the hair. Try using a micro fiber towel as they soak up lots of moisture. --You can naturally strengthen your hair by mixing carrots, or Vitamin Water together in a blender and rubbing gently into hair before you wash. Be sure to wash out well.

Sex Life & Depression - 3 Tips That Might Help

Sex Life & Depression - 3 Tips That Might Help

Depression is one of those experiences when one may feel sad, lonely, dejected and discouraged. Doubt, anxiety and uncertainty crawl in so much so that they may lead to problems in decision making. A depressed person feels devoid of energy and the motivation to do anything at all seems to have disappeared.

Depression and some antidepressants curb sexual drive. This has a negative effect on the depression as sex releases 'happy hormones'. Thus, depression and your sex life share a cyclic relationship. The effect of depression on your sex life is a result of both brain functioning and physical changes in the body.

So if depression is badly ruining your sex life, doing these will help big time:

  1. Depression often makes a person withdraw from others and cease to enjoy any experience. This becomes a thought pattern that cannot be cured with medication. Talking to a counselor can help unlearn these thought patterns and help people form new social bonds. As part of the treatment, the patient will need to find and explore new ways of enjoying sex that can strengthen strained relationships.
  2. Having an open conversation with your partner is key to improving relationships and one's sex life. Talk about your sexual needs and help your partner understand your mental barriers to sex. Find forms of foreplay that appeal to both of you. It is also important for you and your partner to understand that there is no 'standard' to how often you should have sex or how you should feel after it.
  3. Ask your doctor to adjust medication In cases where the antidepressant curbs libido, lowering or adjusting the drug dosage can be a solution to treat the depression without curbing sexual desire. Do not attempt to adjust your medication on your own. Your doctor may also change the drug to another that does not affect your sex drive. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Hello. Hairfall of 500-600 strands per day is really a depressing thing but worrying abt it more will not solve any problem. First check your haemoglobin n thyroid levels n let me know. Hairfall are due to many reasons like inadequate balanced diet, crash diet for weight loss, low haemoglobin levels, thyroid problems, stress, hereditary, smoking, alcohol consumption, etc. For hairfall use minotress 5% solution on scalp two times per day for 3 months. Trilast hair solution on scalp at night time. Use medicated shampoo like triclenz or hair 4 you for regular use. Juene hairoil 2-3 times per week. Tab nutricap-h once a day after food for 3 months. Apply home made hair masks once in month, ripe banana, honey, curd, egg white, you can use these. Include protein rich food, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits n juices in your diet. Drink 2-3 lit of water daily n 45 min of exercise is must. Thanx.

Https://www.Dropbox.Com/s/99zlkbsyit9yyh7/Lab%20Results%20-%20WellnessFXf.Pdf?dl=0 Lab results are a little over year old but my issues are getting worse now and I don't have a lot of money to blow on a lot of test. I wake up with a really bad headache Evey morning and it goes down a couple hours later but never really leaves. It feels like when you stand up really quick and you get dizzy for a while but all the time. Also I'm really fatigued all the time. Sometimes ill have a good day but most of the time after working 8 hours all I want to do is rest. I sleep 9 to 12 hours a day some times more if I feel horrible. If I sleep less I can't get though my work day. I have really bad pain behide my eyes making it really have to concentrate on anything. I'm really thirsty for water and urinate more than most people. I pee clear almost always. My stools change allot but I get the runs often. I eat a lot of fryed foods. Sweets and fruit make me feel worse. I don't drink pop or coffee cause they make me feel worse. I'm would not blame this on depression because on good days I'm happy with my life. When I feel like crap I don't feel motivated to do anything. I googled a lot already and it sounds like diabetes but my a1c test from the lab results said levels were normal. I wanted to post a few places before I go to the doctors and demand a fasting glucose test. So please help me out and tell me what you think.

General Physician,
Managing grief by free expressive writing
====================================
The loss of a loved is often painful. The resultant grief makes it hard to eat, sleep and leads to loss of interest in routine life affecting behavior and judgment.

Some can feel agitated or exhausted, to sob unexpectedly, or to withdraw from the world and others may find themselves struggling with feelings of sorrow, numbness, anger, guilt, despair, irritability, relief, or anxiety.

It is well known that disclosing deep emotions through writing can boost immune function as well as mood and well–being. Conversely, the stress of holding in strong feelings can ratchet up blood pressure and heart rate and increase muscle tension.

One can write on a piece of paper, in your personal book, on the open website with nick name or keep it in the mind. One doesn’t have to preserve the emotions and can through away the writings

In absence of deeply troubling situations, such as suicide or a violent death which are best explored with the help of an experienced therapist, one can choose writing as a way to express out the grief.
Start writing for 15 to 30 minutes a day for three to four days
Continue up to a week if it is helping.
Continue writing for 15 to 30 minutes once a week for a month.
Writing has stronger effects when it extends over more days.
Remember writing about grief and loss can trigger strong emotions (one may cry or feel deeply upset).
Many people find journal writing valuable and meaningful and report feeling better afterward.
Don’t worry about grammar or sentence structure.
Truly let go. Write down how you feel and why you feel that way. You’re writing for yourself, not others.

This range of fasting sugar test is true but not always if you have doubt for diabetes then get oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) done. This is another test used to diagnose prediabetes. The doctor will give you instructions on how to prepare for the test, but you won’t be able to eat anything for eight hours before the test; you’ll be fasting. This test give accurate result for test.

Hello, i'm assuming that when you say'dreams disturbing you' you mean nightmares. If that is the case, it could be that you are distirbed with something else that is causing the nightmares. It would help if you could meet a psychotherapist that will focus on that aspect. Sleeplessness can have an adverse effect on our function areas of work, emotional stability, physicality & personal relationships.

You have an anger-related depression and the incidents around your family may be great contributors towards it. I suspect you are not expressing this feeling and therefore the depression. Sometimes you act your anger out with your wife and children making them hapless victims of your inability to express to the elder family members for their gross indifference towards to and your wife and kids. Procrastination is also indicative of anger not expressed. Headaches are directly related to anger. All this stress is causing acidity in your system. This is not laziness in the traditional sense but a lethargy or inertia prompted by unexpressed feelings of anger. You must do regular and vigorous exercise every day. Yoga and meditation is also good to calm you down. Force yourself to do the opposite of what your mind and body feel like doing or not doing. Depression is the only condition I recommend that you must fight with all your might. Work with a counselor and particularly learn to express your anger at home. Many years of suppressed emotions are playing havoc in your system. If none of these have the desired effect, do go to a psychiatrist and seek medical intervention to help with the depression. Whatever happens please do continue with the counseling.

It is normal to feel low after losing a close one. But continuing to feel depressed will not help you in any manner. You can keep the person alive in your thoughts and heart always, try and do some charitable act in their name or anything else you feel they liked and would appreciate you doing. This should help you to look forward to life and also give you some motivation.

I hope you are taking these tablets after consulting a psychiatrist. If not please consult a psychiatrist and follow his advice. Some medicines may have some side effects, and the headache and the feeling of current passing through your nerves might be the side effects of the tablets. Please discuss this with your doctor who might change your medication. But please do not start or stop medicines on your own, it will be harmful for you. There are a number of causes for depression and the severity of depressive mood also differs from person to person. I think, along with the medication, counselling and psychotherapy would be of great help to you. The counsellor can help you to understand your own behavior patterns and thought processes and help you to modify the same. There might be some heredity of depression, you might be having some suppressed emotions or unresolved issues of the past, which might be affecting your mind now. The counsellor can help you to identify and manage such emotions and will help you to move on with life and enjoy life. Take care.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,
