Hey doctor I smoke a lot and have been treated off of schizophrenia but still the medication is going on. Have minimal alcohol usage and have been on a ketogenic diet for the past 16 days. And before that for two weeks I was on paleo and am on a caloric deficit of around 1000 calories. The problem is I haven't had anything red or anything that gives off red colour no tomato no sauce no food colour or anything but today I puked after my breakfast and fist came out scrambled eggs and then what seemed to be a lot of red liquid like around 20 ml so to say. I feel pretty normal no upset stomach or anything should I worry?

Hi, lybrate-user  I suggest you consult your physician for smoking and if you think that you want to quit smoking so, I suggest you to take NICOTEX. NICOTEX is a chewing gum containing nicotine that helps smokers to quit smoking. It works on the proven principal of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). HOW TO QUIT SMOKING? YOU NEED TO HAVE strong will power, counselling by a psychologist & lots of motivation. I could help create a quit smoking plan and further guide you on how to take Nicotex for a period of 12 weeks. Stay committed, there are no side effects, and you can take it with your medication. Believe that you can quit. List down the reasons to quit e.g for your health, for your loved one. Schizophrenia is characteristic by thoughts or experiences that seem out of touch with reality, disorganized speech or behaviour and decreased participation in daily activities. Difficulty with concentration and memory may also be present. You will Experience with Behavioral, cognitive, mood,psychological, speech problems. I suggest you to consult a clinical psychologist immediately so that proper evaluation done. If done then attach the reports then I can help you and further therapy, activity will started accordingly. You can book your appointment.

Ayurveda and Smoking

MD - Ayurveda, BAMS

Ayurveda and Smoking

Every packet of cigarette comes with the warning 'Smoking is injurious to health'. With every national budget plan, the prices of nicotine based additives are hiked. Yet, you cannot quit smoking because you find it extremely difficult to resist the nicotine urge. Ayurveda says that the root cause of addiction is mental stress due to one of the 3 Doshas that are Vata, Pitta, Kapha. People try to terminate them through temporary, addictive methods rather than a bit more natural, holistic methods. Here's how it can be easier for you to quit smoking by adopting Ayurvedic remedies.

Ayurvedic remedies:

  1. Drink adequate amount of water, especially from a copper vessel. This helps to accumulate the wastes and release them.
  2. Perform the Neti Kriya (inhaling saline water through one nostril and releasing it through the other and then reversing the procedure).
  3. Performing the Bhastrika Pranayama twice every day, both in the morning and at night.
  4. Consume 3 tablets or 1  teaspoon of triphala everyday before going to bed, to eliminate the deposited nicotine tar in your system.
  5. Consumption of a measured mixture of ashwagandha, bala, shatavari and ginseng every day, or a chyawanprash containing these help in detoxification.

Changes in diet:

  1. Avoid consumption of alcohol and other addictive drugs, such as coffee, sugar, etc. because they increase the urge to smoke.
  2. Decrease intake of fatty foods because your metabolism rate is lower than at most other times, so you might risk gaining weight during this period.
  3. Try a vegetarian diet because it increases the Sattvik quality of your mind. Every fresh food item contains prana or life which rejuvenates both your body and mind.
  4. Chew anti-nicotine gums or suck on cinnamon sticks which curb your urge to smoke.
  5. Keep eating low-calorie food items like carrots, apples or celery.
  6. Incorporating regular exercise in your routine may help you to quit smoking more easily. It controls weight gain, which is a side-effect of quitting, and also offers you a fit and healthy lifestyle.
  7. Meditating and doing yoga regularly helps in relaxing your mind. Yogic postures like Sabasan help attain internal peace and divert your mind from craving to smoke.

Besides these techniques, there are various other ways like taking help from a professional ayurvedic counselor, which will help you quit smoking, socializing with friends or spending quality time with your family, will keep your mind diverted from the stress of quitting.

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.

I feel really depressed when I loose something and my head started paining and water started coming from my eyes.

I feel really depressed when I loose something and my head started paining and water started coming from my eyes.
Dear lybrate user. Here I need clarification that whether you have been like this by personality or you have become quiet sensitive since some days or months. If I consider you to be like this since childhood than there is nothing to worry. Every person when looses something close and dear to him feels terrible, its just the expression or external behavior which is different. Every person on this earth is different and we all fall on a range of personality traits say for example from extroversion to introversion. This range for a person is predecided by the genes he is having and getting expressed, while exactly where a person will fall is decided by his upbringing that is the environmental factors. So everyone is born with a rubber band personality traits which has a range to which it can be stretched but the exact stretch is decided by his upbringing for the initial 18 years. There is nothing wrong to be sensitive or anxious when there is a significant event like a loss of something close to you. You rather accept it as these are normal human emotions. But if I consider that this is something new happening to you since a while say few months, than for sure you have some underlying depressive illness which needs to be evaluated. For further queries get in touch. Take care

Good morning I have been suffering from depression since last 15 days thinking about a girl. I am unable to come out of her thoughts please suggest me what to do.

It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. Boy/girl relationship is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you that you are depressed, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

I smoke about3 year I am look very thin what to do for restore my health and remove smoking.
Please remember that smoking 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 smoking 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 smoking. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga and chant the names of god who you have faith in. It has been scientifically proved that by doing yoga and chanting, the habit of smoking can be stopped.

I am easily stressed and getting disappointed by others so can you please guide me to over come this and be successful.
I can give ou some stress control methods. There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1.Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2.Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3.Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4.Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5.Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6.Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7.Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8.Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9.Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10.Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11.Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less?

Is the treatment of atypical depression is different from melancholic depression?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Is the treatment of atypical depression is different from melancholic depression?
Melancholic depression is the classic form of biological depression. Its defining features are: A more severe depression than is the case with non-melancholic depression, with a lack of pleasure and difficulty in being cheered up Psychomotor disturbance (e. G. Low energy, poor concentration, slowed or agitated movements) Melancholic depression is a relatively uncommon type of depression. It affects less than 10 per cent of people presenting with a depression diagnosis. The numbers affected are roughly the same for men and women. Melancholic depression has a low spontaneous remission rate. It responds best to physical treatments (for example antidepressant drugs) and only minimally (at best) to non-physical treatments such as counselling or psychotherapy. Atypical depression is a name that has been given to expressions of depression that contrast with the usual characteristics of depression. For example, rather than experiencing appetite loss the person instead experiences appetite increase; and sleepiness rather than insomnia. Someone with atypical depression is also likely to have a personality style of interpersonal hypersensitivity (expecting others not to like or approve of them). The features of atypical depression include: Being able to be cheered up by pleasant events Significant weight gain or increase in appetite (especially to comfort foods) Excessive sleeping (hypersomnia) Heaviness in the arms and legs A long-standing sensitivity to interpersonal rejection —the individual is quick to feel that others are rejecting of them.
