Dear , Greetings! Anxiety is at core of IBS and resultant constipation and piles. Physically you need to add running to your schedule. For anxiety here is a short technique to help you. But along with this technique you require therapeutic intervention to alleviate the cause of chronic anxiety. Hypnotherapy (child and life regression) might help you too depending upon the psychologist's perspective. Technique- breathing. Whenever you feel anxiety take deep breaths. Inhale with count of 4-Hold for 2 seconds-Exhale with count 8. Exhale = 2 Inhale. This technique helps in reducing anxiety. Another method, try Progressive Muscle Relaxation technique. For faster results twice a day is recommended.

Dear lybrate user. You seem to have early onset parkinson disease. There are questions to clarify like do you have a family history of parkinsons etc. There are medications which may help your condition but further clarifications are needed, like having any other medical or surgical illnesses or are you on any other medications other than what you have written. Get in touch with the stated information.

There is something distracting you and it usually is related to stress, even if you don't feel it or know it. But because of your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Main problem is after having 4 pegs he will not have any sense to talk and he start abusing language and after me.He had gastric bypass in 2006 after his surgery he became wild and arrogant . Plz help me out . He is diabetic also

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your husband is complicating matters by consuming alcohol after this surgery and also being a diabetic. You must take him to his doctor and find out from him how dangerous alcohol is for his condition. It seems that he has a strong oral issue which has switched from heavy eating to heavy drinking, after the surgery. This may indicate some issue stemming from his early childhood ? normally some deep pain that he is smothering by intoxication. He will need to be hospitalized to detoxify him and then for some extensive addiction counseling to resolve this for good. You could then both go for AA meetings and Al-anon support groups: the former for your husband and the latter for family members of alcoholics like you. You could also contact me for the book on addictions, for a fee of Rs. 250/- only.

Hi. Is smoking marijuana bad for health? It is considered as medicine nowadays in european countries. If it is a medicine How can it be harmful?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Smoking it is harmful and the medicine you refer may the extract from the plant and we are not yet aware of which medicine you are talking about The term medical marijuana refers to using the whole unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat a disease or symptom. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine. However, scientific study of the chemicals in marijuana, called cannabinoids, has led to two FDA-approved medications that contain cannabinoid chemicals in pill form. Continued research may lead to more medications..

My wife is 27, she is very aggressive in nature and negative thinker. When she is angry she starts blaming me for she not being happy. She starts the work and leaves half way and she get bored of things very fast. If she is tense she just doesn't do anything except for sleeping. When she is angry she gets violent. She doesn't even come to doctor. What should I do.

Looks like you both are going through a difficult time in your marriage. Since you have only written about what she does but not about your behaviour, I sense that you either withdraw and remain quiet or both of you argue and it leads to fights between the 2 of you. In either case you will benefit with couple counselling so that you are able to talk to each other openly and transparently so that the actual problems can be spoken about openly. Communications styles differ in all people which leads to many misunderstandings and differences. A succesful marriage requires both parties to understand each other and participate in a manner to support the relationship, as well as personal goals and interests. A visit to the doctor will not be wrong either. Maybe both of you can go as a couple instead of making her as the" identified patient" (she seems to be feeling blamed and cornered hence refusing to cooperate). You could suggest to her that you want to see a doctor" for both of us" so that we can work out the differences between us. Say what you mean and do it genuinely.

Death is inevitable in human life, no doubt it is painful but one has to accept this reality. There is no point in remain in grief and keeping away from others, this will make you mentally weak. Be happy and remain in good relatives, friends company. Do some yoga and meditation, visit near by religious place to get mental peace. Time is god a great healer, every thing will be alright, wait and watch with calm and cool mind.

Bipolar disorder was earlier called as Manic Depressive psychosis. It's a major illness that needs medical management by an expert. ICD 10 F31 is the international classification of this disorder. People who are in the high phase lose insight. Meaning they don't know their behavior is different and far away from normal. They feel on the top of the world. Who wants medication in such a high feeling? It is the close relatives who can tell unmistakably about the altered behavior. Sleep is reduced. Speaking and flow of thoughts increases in the hypomania phase and it is common to find that the person revolts against medication. The same person when in depression feels opposite. Dull and lethargic he lacks enthusiasm and zest in life's activities. In the depression phase he is willing to take medicines, which he rebels against in the high phase. If in doubt meet another psychiatrist with a close relative. My best wishes are with you, Happiness doctor

How To Deal With Someone Who Is Suffering From Depression

Depression is an addictive state, which is hard to get rid of. Everybody who suffers from it encounters it in an unexpected way, yet we all agree that it can be a major well-being issue. It makes a person miserable, disappointed, restless or numb for long and tedious timeframes, and is debilitating, particularly when you can't demonstrate your feelings and worries to anybody. It can meddle with your productivity and can become a concern not only in workplaces, but also in social circles.

So here's how to deal with a friend or family member in a depressed state of mind:

  1. Never Say 'You're Too Much': When someone with depression is told "you're too much," particularly by somebody near them, it can send them spiralling into blame and nervousness and bitterness. Being encouraging and empowering is likewise useful.
  2. Try not to Shame People for Being Negative: Dejection changes the world into a scene of pessimism. Discouraged individuals don't just focus on the negatives, but they also disregard the positives.
  3. Do Understand That Depression Doesn't Mean "Trouble": Melancholy is a condition with an assortment of side effects like exhaustion, confused mind state and rest issues. These are all side effects of melancholy. Crabbiness is an exceptionally basic side effect, which once in a while is encountered by many individuals, and can lead to an expanded sensitivity. Normally, it's difficult to be sympathetic with someone who is behaving grumpily. But you need to make a conscious effort to still see the positive in depressed individuals and lead them to hope.
  4. Do Validate: Approval can help manage a depressed state, and can wean a friend or family member out of depression. Remember that someone with dejection is not living in the same universe as you. The laws that oversee your universe don't exist in theirs.

Depressed individuals require your understanding, your empathy, and your affection,  considerably more when they are having a troublesome day, week or month. It is hard, but possible. Discouraged individuals value a positive backing in particular.

Hi lybrate-user, this is because of anxiety, you need to practice deep breathing exercise: find a quiet space where you can be alone with no distractions. Close the door, if possible. As you get used to this breathing exercise, you may be able to close out distractions and perform the exercise around others. Sit upright, with your back straight. You can sit in a chair, or sit on the floor with your legs crossed, whatever feels more natural. You can lie down if you must. Keep in mind, however, that sitting upright allows your lungs to fill to maximum capacity, which is best when practicing deep breathing place your arms on the arms of a chair or resting on your thighs. This removes the burden from your shoulders and aids in relaxation. For a count of four seconds, breathe deeply through your nose. Your lower belly should expand with the breath. For one to two seconds, simply hold the breath inside your chest. Now, exhale all of the air out of your lungs through your mouth. You should hear a" whoosh" sound as it leaves your mouth. Notice your belly deflating as you release the breath. To avoid hyperventilating, pause for a few seconds before taking a new breath. Do this entire sequence again for about five minutes. About six to eight cycles of breathing per minutes is considered effective at relieving anxiety. Nonetheless, you should find your own natural breathing rhythm that makes you comfortable. Practice deep breathing at least twice a day for five minutes each session. All the best.

Right before you begin your interviews or public speech, just practice some breathing exercises. Take some deep breaths, inhale, hold your breath for five seconds and then exhale. Take atleast six to ten such deep breaths for 10 minutes before any public talk, and you will feel much more confident.

How do smoking and using alcohol and drugs affect sexual health?

We all know that tobacco contributes to lung and heart disease, but many people don’t realize that it seriously affects sexual health as well. Smoking damages the arteries affecting blood flow to the genitals, and it leads to a loss of desire and arousal in both men and women. In terms of alcohol consumption, most of us know that having a drink or two before sex may help us relax and ease our inhibitions. But high levels of consumption can also result in sexual dysfunction. From causing the loss of erections to preventing your ability to get or stay aroused, alcohol disables the natural sexual response of the autonomic nervous system. Other chemical substances, like marijuana and cocaine, also have known links to low sex drive and sexual dysfunction.
