Smoking - Why Is It So Bad During Pregnancy?

Smoking - Why Is It So Bad During Pregnancy?

As you know, several scientific studies have proven that smoking is one of the main causes of several serious ailments like cancer, lung diseases, asthma and so on. Pregnant women who smoke not only spoil their own health, but also the health of the lovely kid in their womb. Yet many women wonder whether smoking really affects pregnancy and the answer is quite in the affirmative.

  1. Cigarette chokes the baby in the womb: It is known that cigarette smoke contains more than 4000 chemicals including lead and cyanide. In fact, it is one of the few products that contain more than 60 different types of cancer causing chemicals and compounds. It would be interesting to note that none among these 4000 chemicals is beneficial to the expectant mother and to the baby in the womb. In fact, cigarette smoke chokes not only the expectant mother, but also the baby inside. As a result, frequent chocking causes serious effects on the health of the fetus.
  2. Grouped into three categories: Smoking directly affects the health of the fetus. Premature babies, still born babies and underweight babies are some of the results of smoking prior to pregnancy. As a matter of fact, smoking by women could be grouped into three namely smoking before, during and after pregnancy. This issue is further discussed here:
    • It is strongly suggested that women planning on pregnancy should stop smoking at least few months before they conceive. In the first place, smoking may affect the fertility of both men and women. Therefore, the couple should stop smoking, if they are planning to have a baby. Further, if the couple does not quit smoking and the woman becomes pregnant, then it can seriously affect the health of the baby.
    • Whether you smoke during the first three months or during the last phase of the pregnancy, tobacco can severely harm the health of the fetus. The increase of monoxide in the blood stream caused by smoking tobacco will enter the bloodstream of the mother and also of the child in the womb. Naturally, this will affect the growth of the child. It can cause visual and/or hearing impairment, behavioural problems and also mental disability of the baby.
    • Post pregnancy, the mother should breastfeed the baby. Smoking can retard the secretion of milk in the breast. Further, the dangerous chemicals present in the smoke of tobacco will make its presence in the breast milk. Naturally, this will affect the health of the baby.

Keeping in view the best interests of the mother and baby, it is strongly suggested that the couple should stop smoking, if they want to have a baby. After all, the health of the baby and of the couple is a matter of primary importance. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I easily get angry on small small things but why my nature has drastically change after marriage.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
If you have started getting angry after your marraige, if this is what you mean then.. it may be due to moving to a new place, leaving the comfort of your known environment and friends and family. Adjusting to new life, taking much more responsibilities etc. all might be creating lot of pressure on your. and when under stress being angry is a very normal respose. As you havenot given much details it is difficult to give you situation specific response. but you may try follwoing stress management and resilience building tips for few months and you will see the difference. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

mobile addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

5 Ways your Pet can Relieve You from Depression

5 Ways your Pet can Relieve You from Depression

Having pets around not only makes you feel better, but also teaches you compassion, empathy and loyalty. Spending quality time with your pets tends to have a positive effect on your mood and mental health. Pets can act as great stress relievers and actually uplift your mood when are depressed.

Connecting with your pet instantly improves your mood and makes you forget your worries with their unconditional love and care. Here are 5 ways in which your pet can relieve depression and make you feel better.

1. A healthy heart: If you own a dog, you are less likely to get heart diseases. Spending time with your dog, going for walks and jogs, playing in the park, etc. will keep you active and maintain a normal blood pressure. Activities with your pets will also curb any sadness in your heart, at least for the moment. You will have a routine to follow, and this will keep you distracted from your source of depression.


2. Stress relief: Petting your pet dog, cat or rabbit will soothe your mind and help you get rid of any kind of stress. Depression causes a lot of stress, and if you hug or lay down with your dog, you are likely to feel better and get much more relieved from stress. A relaxation hormone is released by the body which brings down stress levels.

3. Pets enable you to connect socially: If you are depressed, you may feel like connecting with new people for feeling better. Your pets can help you with this. If you walk down a road with your dog, it is likely that people approach you and start a conversation with you. 

4. A better mood: If you are depressed for a long time, getting a pet dog can change your life. Pet owners are happy people and are more trustworthy than normal people. If you feel lonely and depressed, a pet dog can provide you better company and happiness than a human at times. You will have a new meaning in life and would love to take care of your pet and raise him healthy. Your general mood will be much improved.

5. Unconditional love: The best thing about pets and especially dogs is that they will love you unconditionally. No matter what you do, they will always love you the most and come to you wagging their tail. A loving touch has an incredible healing power and hugging your pets will make you happy and less depressed.

Pets are an amazing way to get relief from depression. Having a pet around makes any atmosphere much livelier. Raising a pet is like raising a child, and thus you will remain distracted and won’t have time to think about your reason for depression.

My papa aged 60 had a very sharp memory till last three four years but now he bitterly forgets things even very important .Some times he in spite of carefully memorises the list of things to do in the market or work place has to make three four visits to the market for same one item .He is otherwise very healthy and we are a happy family.

shall I use saraswathi lehyam. Does it really works I mean does it really improves memory power. How should I use it?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Saraswatha lehyam is good for memory. You can take one spoon at night before bed time. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, sorry about your struggles. I would say that everything is possible if we desire. I understand you want to get better without medicines, are you open to taking cognitive behaviour therapy, I don't think your situation is too bad to be on medication. You should be able to respond to psychotherapy without medicines. I am willing to help and walk with you in this process. Regards.

Hii. My brother is 24 year old he is very addicted to cigarette before he have his breakfast he use to smoke in the early morning. For every hour he smokes. After lunch dinner before on bed. He also took nicotex gums before one month ago so after tat he left for 1 week again he started smoking regularly so please suggest me to help. Thank you.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear, This may not be totally medically proved fact however in my alternative practice, I ha e seen complaints like these improving after aura detox meditation. We have field of energy around us which gets contaminated by negativity and adverse thought energies. Aura cleansing through guided imagery meditation technique could give you immediate benefit. No harm in trying it out.

Sir, my name is Fazal Hussain, from Bhadradri Kothagudem Dist. For the last 15 years I have been suffering with anxiety neurosis, palpitation, hyper curiosity to do any work. I feel irritation to search any books or documents I require, and suddenly start shaking of limbs and irritation. I am also having insomnia. I am 57 years old now. I used to ride bicycle to my office. Do yoga, meditation, breathing exercises. No non veg. I have been contacting psychiatrists whenever the problem was more. They prescribed inderal, restyled, escitalopram, clonazepam, etc. I used to take the medicine for about a month or so and whenever I feel comfort I used to stop the medicine and sincerely tried to control by natural means of yoga, cycling, breathing exercises etc. With soft veg food. As per last year's test reports of ECG, 2D Echo, TMT, there is no heart related ailments. But for the last one year I am having high bp. Physicians prescribed 40 mg telma. Even with telma, the BP remains 160/100. At that time if I take 20 mg inderal+ 0.5 mg restyl, the BP remains normal temporarily. Psychiatrists advising inderal+clonazepam +escitalopram and physician advising telma. I am in the confused state. However as per the doctors advise I am taking telma, inderal, clonazepam, doth at present but the BP is always fluctuating. For hypothyroidism I am taking 20 mcg of thyroxine daily for the last one year. In view of the above, I would like to see you sir. Thanks for patience reading.

Dear user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I've been taking cymbalta for 8yrs for depression & chronic pain. I started having terrible sweating, short term memory loss, severe depression, worsening pain, & so many other side effects it would take an hour to write them all down! my Dr. Started slowly trying to get my dosage down from 90mgs, & after getting down from 60mgs to 30mgs, my side effects became unbareable. I forged on & now i'm on my 2nd day of taking just 5mgs of lexapro, after going 3 days w/out taking cymbalta. I'm curious if anyone has successfully conquered this transition, & how long it took to feel somewhat normal? i'm aware it doesn't happen overnight, & i'm not asking for rainbows & butterflies-but the way I feel now is not good! along w/the other stated side effects, i'm so lethargic & my brain is acting as if I turned the switch to off. i desperately need your advice.?

I can empathise with you. Your description is so elaborate that I could feel it. Though I don't know about the medication but your symptoms do look like coming from a long period of unaddressed stress and anxiety. You could take up counselling which can additionally help you to cope and manage with the chronic pain. Have you tried any of the alternative healing techniques for depression and pain management? you can also look into your exercising routine, food and lifestyle, all which play a role in these issues. Please contact me if you have any questions.
