Please exercise atleast 20 minutes to 30 minutes even normal walk is good for increasing blood circulation. Revital tables are good as these help in improving. Improves mental alertness & concentration increases ability to handle stress helps improve your health, immunity & stamina supplements diet for increased well-being even if you are healthy, you can take revital as it gives all the vitamins and minerals your body needs on a daily basis. These days we do not eat the right quantity & quality of food that is required to fulfill all the daily requirements of vitamins & minerals, so we all need revital to stay fit and active. Take with water once a day after breakfast. Good luck and god bless you.

I feel very fatigue and restlessness is there for whole of the day. I feel sleepy all the day! What should I do to cure it? What is this mean? Is it sign of nicotine withdrawal or anything else?

Home Remedies for Stress

Ayurveda, Hapur
Home Remedies for Stress
1. Slow and Deep Breathing
Slow and deep breathing can help you cool off in a stressful situation. With deep breathing, more oxygen enters the body, which has a calming effect on your mind and body. In fact, 15 to 30 minutes of slow, deep breathing daily can help prevent stress. It can even help you think more clearly, so that you can deal with stress more easily.
1. When you are under stress, sit or lie down in a quiet, comfortable place.
2. Close your eyes and take a deep breath through your nose to the count of 5.
3. Hold your breath for 5 counts, then exhale for 5 counts.
4. Repeat 5 or 6 more times or until you calm down and feel relaxed.

2. Epsom Salt
Epsom salt is another useful and effective remedy to help you calm down when you are under stress. Stress causes low magnesium levels in the body and increases adrenaline levels.
Epsom salt is high in magnesium, which helps increase the mood-elevating serotonin chemical in the brain. This in turn helps reduce stress, promote relaxation and ease anxiety, irritability, insomnia and abnormal heart rhythms.
1. Add 1 cup of Epsom salt and a few drops of an aromatic essential oil of your choice to warm bathwater.
2. Stir thoroughly, until the salt granules dissolve in the water.
3. Soak in this soothing water for 20 minutes.
4. You can enjoy this soothing bath 2 or 3 times a week.

3. Chamomile Tea
Chamomile is an effective herb for reducing stress. Its calming and soothing nature has a sedative effect on the central nervous system. It helps relax the muscles, ease anxiety and promote better sleep.
• You can drink up to 4 cups of chamomile tea a day to fight stress. To make the tea, add 2 teaspoons of dried chamomile to a cup of hot water. Cover and steep for 10 minutes. Strain, add raw honey as per taste and drink it.
• You can also add fresh chamomile flowers or a few drops of chamomile essential oil to warm bathwater for a nerve-soothing soak.
• You can even take this herb in supplement form. Consult your doctor for proper dosage.

4. Massage
Body massage also works as a stress reliever for many. According to traditional Chinese medicine, massage helps open blocked energy channels to reduce stress and improve overall health.
A warm oil massage of the feet, hands, back and head helps relax tense muscles, improve circulation and fight anxiety.
For a relaxing massage, you can use sesame, olive or coconut oil.
1. Slightly warm the oil of your choice.
2. Use the warm oil to massage your forehead, neck, shoulders, back and bottom of your feet.
3. Then, take a warm bath.
4. Massage your body daily or as needed to reduce stress.

5. Ashwagandha
Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng or Withania somnifera, is an effective herb for stress.
A 2012 study published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine found that ashwagandha root is effective in reducing stress and anxiety in adults by lowering levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. It also improves resistance to stress, which in turn improves the quality of life.
In addition, ashwagandha strengthens the nervous system, boosts energy, fights fatigue and improves the quality of sleep.
This herb is readily available in the market in fresh root, dried root, powdered or supplement form. The recommended dose is 1 to 2 grams of the fresh or dried root boiled in 1 cup of milk or water, 3 times daily. If taking a supplement, consult your doctor first.
Note: Pregnant women and young children should not take this herb.

6. Holy Basil
Holy basil is another cherished Ayurvedic herb that works as a natural anti-stress agent. Being an adaptogenic herb, it enhances the body’s natural response to physical and emotional stress. Plus, it helps the body function properly during times of stress.
According to a 2006 study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, holy basil protects against chronic restraint stress-induced changes, through its central effect.
• Chew 10 to 12 fresh holy basil leaves twice daily.
• You can even drink a cup of basil tea to reduce stress. To make the tea, put 1 tablespoon of fresh basil leaves in a cup of boiling water. Cover and steep for 5 minutes. Strain, add some raw honey and sip the tea slowly.

7. Green Tea

You can also sip away your stress with a cup of green tea. Green tea contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that promotes the production of alpha brain waves, which in turn reduce stress, encourage relaxation and improve focus and mental alertness.
In addition, this amino acid plays an important role in the development of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that promotes relaxation.
Add 2 teaspoons of green tea leaves to a cup of hot water.
1. Cover and steep for 5 minutes.
2. Strain and add some fresh lemon juice and raw honey.
3. You can drink 2 to 3 cups of green tea a day to reduce stress.

8. Passionflower

Another effective folk remedy for stress is passionflower. Passionflower can increase GABA levels in the brain, which helps reduce stress as well as anxiety and panic attacks.
• Drink a cup of passionflower tea to reduce stress. To make the tea, add 1 tablespoon of the dried herb to 1 cup of hot water. Cover and steep for about 10 minutes. Strain and drink this tea while it is still warm.
• Passionflower is also available in liquid extract, tincture and tablet forms. Always consult your doctor before taking a supplement as it may interact with certain medications.
Note: Small children and women who are pregnant or nursing must not take this herb.

9. Exercise

Exercise works as a great stress reliever, be it aerobic, moderate-intensity or high-intensity exercise. It helps reduce the stress hormones and increase the “feel good” hormones in your body. In addition, it improves your mood and distracts you from daily worries.
Try to make time to do some kind of exercise when you are under stress. You can just take a short walk, swim, dance or play some sports.
You can also practice yoga to fight stress. Yoga works as a meditation, which helps calm both your mind and body. It also improves your focus and helps you remain calm and clear in everything you do.

10. B Vitamins

To prevent stress and improve your mood, start taking B vitamins. The eight B vitamins — B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12 —promote proper functioning of the brain and nervous system, as well as help promote relaxation and fight stress and fatigue.
In fact, B vitamin deficiency in the body can cause irritability, depression and apathy. So, when you are under stress, eat more foods rich in B vitamins.
• Foods high in B vitamins include whole grains, beans, peas, peanuts, spinach, kale, blackstrap molasses, avocados, potatoes, bananas, legumes, eggs and dairy products.
• You can also take B vitamin supplements. Consult a doctor first to find out what type of B vitamin your body needs.

Dear lybrate-user. These types of adult thoughts are normal and there is nothing to worry about it. But these thoughts should not be a problem for your daily routine. If the thoughts hinder your daily life, you should think about diversions. Physical exercise, entertainment, social interaction etc will help you divert yourself from those thoughts. Take care.

Voice rest is need be cautious with medications. Many can directly or indirectly affect your voice. Avoid habitual and frequent throat clearing and excessive coughing. Avoid speaking in noisy environments and open spaces such as playgrounds. Avoid intake of spicy, oily and fast food. Avoid caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea and colas. Do not smoke & avoid alcohol intake. Do not sing or mimic natural sounds or animal cries to train your voice. Consult a speech-language pathologist.

Regularly smoking and drinking alcohol, so that I need to check my body for present status. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to go for a complete medical check up since you have been into these habits regularly to know your present status vis-a-vis the addiction. The combination of alcohol and smoking is deadly for your health. I am so glad that you are seeking to get rid of these habits and that will play a major role in your recovery. You must stop them both, abruptly and immediately. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of these habits. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the smoking and drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as your primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after whichever treatment approach you choose, you must attend AA meetings and your family must also attend some Al-anon meetings to help them deal with their own issues regarding your alcoholism and to support you too in the recovery process. I congratulate you on this fabulous decision that will benefit you firstly and your entire family. You are taking action that will have major bearing to many lives.

I think I have a more of a mental or a psychological problem. I cannot open up my feelings with other people whether they may be my family or friends. Also I keep constantly lying to them for no apparent reason. I think I need some help in this part. Also my attitude towards any work is not serious at all. I need to improvise on that. Any good suggestions?

You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I am 26 year old male, I think my problem is more psychological than physical and it is affecting my real life by the way there is no problem in my life. So the problem is" Every night I dream about my teenage time and it seems that I am cheating to my parents I don't know why but it happens more often, sometime I dream about I am in class 12th or sometime about my father who is angry on me" now I am thinking if everyday I wake up with a bad dream so how could I be motivate, and that the reason I am not able to put hundred percent on my work this is what I am thinking.

Having disturbing dreams so frequently, that you so vividly remember is suggestive of a disturbed sleep pattern and distorted sleep architecture. This may occur due to various reasons. Also having similar dreams so often suggests an underlying psychological issue which needs attention and management. Consult a psychiatrist for evaluation and management.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory!’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Ditch the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Sat Nav may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Ban the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables?! It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain! 7 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.

How to do away with fear and existential anxiety permanently without taking any pills. Its making me go paranoid and nuts.

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Well, if your anxiety is overwhelming (which it seems from your phrasing the question & your medicine Melzap-MD 0.25 mg) you will need a combined approach of medicines & lifestyle changes. First is deliberately put yourself in way of your FEARS Second keep a diary & make a list of all your fears. Grade these fears 1-10 (1 being highest & 10 being lowest) Third, go to a Psychiatrist & keep discussing your progress in conquering this fear hierarchy/fear list. He/she can give you valuable inputs/modifications/suggestions to make your progress easier & faster. Lastly with suggestion of Psychiatrist, take regular course of medications to hasten your recovery. All the Best.

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand. There are many people out there like you. Sex with wife is surely boring because people see the act as a ritual and continuous, thereby percieving it as boring. Sex is divine and it should be approached with passion and dedication. If you love your wife from the heart, have passion in her, automatically the pleasure will be different from each sexual experience. Start loving your wife and be passionate towards sex. Take care.

I have taken alprax from last two nights and still I was not able to sleep, I wish to know that I hope I am not in depression but it is true that I am not able to face reality in life and I am loosing my will each day to fight against struggles which I am going through.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, loosing sleep for 2 nights does not mean you are depressed. Please avoid self medication, it is harmful. You are definable under lot of stress. Your mind is disturbed. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to face the realities of life. Acceptance is not easy. But please remember that life is full of challenges and the situations in life keep changing. So even if you are going through hard time in your life right now, this will change. You need to understand what exactly is bothering you and what are your options. Every challenge help you to grow personally. I guess you are feeling stuck at this point of time in your life. It is advisable to consult a counsellor who will help you in resolving your issues rationally. Take care.
