Suggestions Pray daily, ask for the gifts of the Spirit, that which will strengthen you against temptation. Pray fervently and out lout when the temptations are the strongest. Follow a program of vigorous daily exercise. The exercises reduce emotional tension and depression and are absolutely basic to the solution of this problem. Double your physical activity when you feel stress increasing. When the temptation to masturbate is strong, yell STOP to those thoughts as loudly as you can in your mind and then recite a prechosen Scripture or sing an inspirational hymn. It is important to turn your thoughts away from the selfish need to indulge. Set goals of abstinence, begin with a day, then a week, month, year and finally commit to never doing it again. Until you commit yourself to _never again_ you will always be open to temptation. Change in behavior and attitude is most easily achieved through a changed self-image. Spend time every day imagining yourself strong and in control, easily overcoming tempting situations. Begin to work daily on a self-improvement program. Relate this plan to improving your Church service, to improving your relationships with your family, God and others. Strive to enhance your strengths and talents. Be outgoing and friendly. Force yourself to be with others and learn to enjoy working and talking to them. Use principles of developing friendships found in books such as How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. Be aware of situations that depress you or that cause you to feel lonely, bored, frustrated or discouraged. These emotional states can trigger the desire to masturbate as a way of escape. Plan in advance to counter these low periods through various activities, such as reading a book, visiting a friend, doing something athletic, etc. Make a pocket calendar for a month on a small card. Carry it with you, but show it to no one. If you have a lapse of self control, color the day black. Your goal will be to have no black days. The calendar becomes a strong visual reminder of self control and should be looked at when you are tempted to add another black day. Keep your calendar up until you have at least three clear months. A careful study will indicate you have had the problem at certain times and under certain conditions. Try and recall, in detail, what your particular times and conditions were. Now that you understand how it happens, plan to break the pattern through counter activities. In the field of psychotherapy there is a very effective technique called aversion therapy. When we associate or think of something very distasteful with something which has been pleasurable, but undesirable, the distasteful thought and feeling will begin to cancel out that which was pleasurable. If you associate something very distasteful with your loss of self-control it will help you to stop the act. For example, if you are tempted to masturbate, think of having to bathe in a tub of worms, and eating several of them as you do the act. During your toileting and shower activities leave the bathroom door or shower curtain partly open, to discourage being alone in total privacy. Take cool brief showers. Arise immediately in the mornings. Do not lie in bed awake, no matter what time of day it is. Get up and do something. Start each day with an enthusiastic activity. Keep your bladder empty. Refrain from drinking large amounts of fluids before retiring. Reduce the amount of spices and condiments in your food. Eat as lightly as possible at night. Wear pajamas that are difficult to open, yet loose and not binding. Avoid people, situations, pictures or reading materials that might create sexual excitement. It is sometimes helpful to have a physical object to use in overcoming this problem. A Book of Mormon, firmly held in hand, even in bed at night has proven helpful in extreme cases. In very severe cases it may be necessary to tie a hand to the bed frame with a tie in order that the habit of masturbating in a semi-sleep condition can be broken. This can also be accomplished by wearing several layers of clothing which would be difficult to remove while half asleep. Set up a reward system for your successes. It does not have to be a big reward. A quarter in a receptacle each time you overcome or reach a goal. Spend it on something which delights you and will be a continuing reminder of your progress. Do not let yourself return to any past habit or attitude patterns which were part of your problem. Satan never gives up. Be calmly and confidently on guard. Keep a positive mental attitude. You can win this fight! The joy and strength you will feel when you do will give your whole life a radiant and spiritual glow of satisfaction and fulfillment.

Hii lybrate-user. First of all thank you for approaching us for your query. According to your query, first regarding toilet issue it can be due to some gastric problem please you may have to meet a gastroenterologist for that. Secondly the bad mouth smell problem can be due to so many reasons like decayed tooth, sinusitis, or can be due to gastric causes like regurgitation ,or can be due to debris and caluculus in the teeth. We have to find out the cause and remove it. In my opinion it can be mostly due to gastric cause as you hav said you have other gastric issues (frequent toilet) So once gastric cause is treated bad mouth smell will also be prevented. If still you hav problem after that let us know we will find out other ways to treat that problem. Meantime brush twice daily do tongue scraping and drink lots of water. Above all these be calm n cool. Stressfree calm mind can solve any problem. Hope I hav replied to your query. Any more queries you can approach me through private questions. Thank you and have a healthy day.

Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As" per your clinical history is concerned please do a clinical examination by your Doctor(Urologist) and to confirm any pathological causes do few investigations like (Cystoscopy and urine exam RE/ME) and take right treatment if any cause is detected. Do follow lifestyle modifications like this - 1) Try to reducing foods in your diet that are potential bladder irritants may help to relieve the discomfort. Common bladder irritants known as the "four Cs" include: carbonated beverages, caffeine in all forms (including chocolate), citrus products and food containing high concentrations of vitamin C. Also consider avoiding similar foods, such as tomatoes, pickled foods, alcohol, and spices. 2) Do go to the toilet according to the clock rather than waiting for the need to go. You start by urinating at set intervals, such as every half-hour whether you have to go or not. Then you gradually wait longer between bathroom visits. During bladder training, you may learn to control urinary urges by using relaxation techniques, such as breathing slowly and deeply or distracting yourself with another activity. 3) Try to avoid belts or clothes that put pressure on your bladder. 4) Try to reduce stress and stop smoking. 5) Do exercise regularly. Easy stretching exercises may help reduce your bladder symptoms. Hope that helps.

Hello, thank you for informing me about your problem, Constipation is a condition of the digestive system where an individual has hard feces that are difficult to expel. In most cases, this occurs because the colon has absorbed too much water from the food that is in the colon. The slower the food moves through the digestive tract, the more water the colon will absorb from it. Consequently, the feces become dry and hard. When this happens, emptying the bowels can become very painful. This article will cover the main causes of constipation and how it can be treated and prevented. Fast facts on constipation Here are some key points about constipation. More detail and supporting information is in the main article. * Constipation generally occurs because too much water is absorbed from food * Causes of constipation include physical inactivity, certain medications, and aging * Some cases of constipation can be relieved by lifestyle changes * Laxatives should only be used as a last resort Symptoms A diet that contains a good quantity of fiber helps prevent constipation. The main symptoms of constipation are increased difficulty and straining when passing stools. Passing fewer stools than usual can be a sign of constipation. Other symptoms include: * stomach ache * stomach cramps * feeling bloated and nauseous * losing appetite Causes Constipation happens when the colon absorbs too much water. This can occur if the muscles in the colon are contracting slowly or poorly, causing the stool to move too slowly and lose more water. These are the most common causes of constipation: 1) Lack of fiber in the diet People whose diets include a good quantity of fiber are significantly less likely to suffer from constipation. It is important to consume foods rich in fiber such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Fiber promotes bowel movements and prevents constipation. Foods that are low in fiber include high-fat foods, such as cheese, meat, and eggs. 2) Physical inactivity Constipation can occur if someone becomes too physically inactive. This is especially the case in older adults. For individuals who have been bedridden for a long time, perhaps for several days or weeks, their risk of having constipation is significantly increased. Experts are not sure why. Some believe that physical activity keeps the metabolism high, making the processes in the body happen more rapidly. Older adults tend to have a more sedentary life compared with younger people and are therefore at higher risk of constipation. Physically active people are much less likely to become constipated than inactive people. 3) Medications The most common medications to cause constipation are: * narcotic (opioid) pain drugs including codeine (Tylenol), oxycodone (Percocet), and hydromorphone (Dilaudid) * antidepressants including amitriptyline (Elavil) and imipramine (Tofranil) * anticonvulsants including phenytoin (Dilantin) and carbamazepine (Tegretol) iron supplements * calcium channel blocking drugs including diltiazem (Cardizem) and nifedipine (Procardia) * aluminum-containing antacids including Amphojel and Basaljel * diuretics including chlorothiazide (Diuril) 4) Milk Some people become constipated when they consume milk and dairy products. 5) Irritable bowel syndrome People who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) get constipation much more frequently, compared with the rest of the population. 6) Pregnancy Pregnancy brings about hormonal changes that can make a woman more susceptible to constipation. Also, the uterus may compress the intestine, slowing down the passage of food. 7) Aging As a person gets older, the metabolism slows down, resulting in less intestinal activity. The muscles in the digestive tract do not work as well as they used to. 8) Changes in routine When a person travels, their normal routine changes. This can affect the digestive system, which sometimes results in constipation. Meals are eaten at different times, or a person might go to bed, get up, and go to the toilet at different times. All these changes can raise the risk of constipation. 9) Overuse of laxatives Some people believe a person should go to the toilet at least once a day - this is not true. However, to make sure this happens, some people self-medicate with laxatives. Laxatives are effective at helping bowel movements. However, using them regularly allows the body to get used to their action and gradually the dose needs to increase to get the same effect. Laxatives can be habit-forming. When a person becomes dependent on them, there is a significant risk of constipation when they are stopped. 10) Not going to the toilet when needed If individuals ignore the urge to have a bowel movement, the urge can gradually go away until the individual no longer feels the need to go. The longer it is delayed, the drier and harder the stool will become. 11) Not drinking enough water If constipation is already present, drinking more liquids might not relieve it. However, regularly drinking plenty of water reduces the risk of constipation. Many sodas and drinks contain caffeine which can cause dehydration and worsen constipation. Alcohol also dehydrates the body and should be avoided by individuals who are constipated or very susceptible to constipation. 12) Problems with the colon or rectum Tumors can compress or restrict the passages and cause constipation. Also, scar tissue, diverticulosis, and abnormal narrowing of the colon or rectum, known as colorectal stricture. People with Hirschsprung disease are susceptible to constipation (a birth defect in which some nerve cells are absent in the large intestine). 13) Some diseases and conditions Diseases that tend to slow down the movement of feces through the colon, rectum, or anus can cause constipation. These include the following: * Neurological disorders: Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, stroke, spinal cord injuries, and chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction can lead to constipation. * Endocrine and metabolic conditions: Uremia, diabetes, hypercalcemia, poor glycemic control, and hypothyroidism. * Systemic diseases: These are diseases that affect a number of organs and tissues, or affect the body as a whole, they include lupus, scleroderma, amyloidosis. * Cancer: Constipation occurs in people with cancer, mainly due to pain medications and chemotherapy. Also, if a tumor blocks or squeezes the digestive system. Treatment In the majority of cases, constipation resolves itself without any treatment or risk to health. The treatment of recurring constipation can include lifestyle changes such as doing more exercise, eating more fiber, and drinking more water. Usually, laxatives will successfully treat most cases of constipation - but should be used with care and only when necessary. In more difficult cases, the person may need a prescription medication. It is important to understand the cause of constipation - there could be an underlying illness or condition. Some people with recurring constipation use a daily diary where they record their bowel movements, stool characteristics, and other factors that may help both the doctor and patient devise the best treatment. Some gastroenterologists comment that there are people who do not allocate enough time for their defecation. Set aside enough time to allow your toilet visit to be unstressed and uninterrupted, and do not ignore an urge to have a bowel movement. OTC laxatives Only use these laxatives as a last resort: * Stimulants: These make the muscles in the intestines contract rhythmically. These include Correctol, Dulcolax, and Senokot. * Lubricants: These help the stool move down the colon more easily. These include mineral oil and Fleet. * Stool softeners: These moisten the stool. Stool softeners include Colace and Surfak. * Fiber supplements: These are perhaps the safest laxatives. They are also called bulk laxatives. They include FiberCon, Metamucil, Konsyl, Serutan, and Citrucel and should be taken with plenty of water. If you want to buy bulk laxatives, then there is an excellent selection online with thousands of customer reviews. * Osmotics: These facilitate the movement of fluids through the colon. These include Cephulac, Sorbitol, and Miralax. * Saline laxatives: These draw water into the colon and include milk of magnesia. * Chloride channel activators: These require a prescription and include lubiprostone (Amitiza). * 5-HT-4 agonists: They increase the secretion of fluid in the intestines and speed up the rate at which food passes through the colon. They include Prucalopride. If the constipation does not respond to any treatment, as a last resort, surgery to remove part of the colon may be undertaken. In the procedure, the segment of the anal sphincter or rectum that causes the constipation is removed. Natural remedies There are a few ways to ease the symptoms of constipation without using medication. These include: * Increasing fiber intake: People with constipation should eat between 18 and 30 grams (g) of fiber every day. Fresh fruits and vegetables and fortified cereals have high fiber content. * Drinking water: Consuming lots of water can help to rehydrate the body. * Bulking agents: Adding these to your diet can help soften stools and make them easier to pass. Examples of bulking agents include wheat bran. * Regular exercise: This can help to make bodily processes more regular, including the passing of stools. * Routine: Having a place and time of day where you can put aside time to visit the bathroom without forcing a stool. * Avoiding holding in stools: Responding to your body's natural urges to pass stools when they happen is key to reducing the impact of constipation. * Elevate your feet: Place your feet short platform, such as a step, and make sure the knees are above hip-level while passing stools. This can reduce constipation. * Homeopathic remedies: While their effectiveness is disputed, some studies have suggested that treatments for constipation offered by homeopathic doctors can be successful. These include calcarea carbonica, nux vomica, silica, bryonia, and lycopodium. Speak with your doctor about the best course of action if symptoms are not responding to natural or home remedies. Complications Constipation on its own can be uncomfortable but not life-threatening. However, severe constipation can develop into more serious conditions, including: * rectal bleeding after continually straining to pass stools * anal fissure, or a small tear around the anus * hemorrhoids, or swollen, inflamed blood vessels of veins in the rectum * faecal impaction, in which dried stools collect in the anus and rectum, leading to an obstruction in the path stool would take to leave the body Dealing with constipation before it becomes one of these conditions can prevent further discomfort.
