Dear , anxiety disorder is not a disease. It is a disorder. Mental disorder not requires medicines. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation etc are enough to cure your problem. You must learn and educate yourself about your anxiety disorder. The more you try to" cure" your anxiety, anxiety increases and cure is not possible. You have to change your mindset.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, I can understand what you must be going through. The symptoms that you have mentioned definitely suggests underlying psychological disorder. However, to understand the exact nature of the disorder, a detailed evaluation will be required. Depression and anxiety spectrum disorders are treatable. Depending on the exact diagnosis, treatment will include medications or psychotherapy or a combination of both. You should consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated. Treatment is usually long term and you will need to be patient regarding the response. Best wishes.

The person who smokes, how can he prevent his lungs from tar. Means how can we reduce the level of tar from the lungs of a smoker?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
1. Don’t Smoke This one is a no-brainer, the detrimental effect of cigarette smoke on the lungs has been known and documented for over a hundred years… yet some people continue to do it. Smoking deposits harmful and obstructive tar in the lungs, not to mention a phone-book sized list of chemicals. The chemicals in cigarette smoke, like carbon monoxide, inhibit mechanical lung function and contribute to the development of big, big problems like emphysema and cancer. Smoking is bad for your health and it’s bad for everyone around you. There’s no need to rehash what we all know, let’s just shut the book on this one- don’t smoke! 2. Perform Lung Cleansing Exercises Did you know breathing exercises can strengthen your lungs and help clear toxins? Just as bicep curls will strengthen your arms, deep breathing exercises will strengthen your lungs and clear your airways. Deep breathing provides a secondary benefit in that they deliver more nourishing oxygen to your body. Shallow breathing is often a product of weak lung function or sedentary habits. It’s a bad habit and if you’re guilty, stop! Once or twice a day, find a quiet place and perform the deep breathing exercises that tap into the full capacity of your lungs! 3. Eat Lung Cleansing Foods Did you know pistachios, plantain leaf, and cayenne pepper are all foods that promote healthy lung function? Pistachios contain gamma-tocopherol, a type of vitamin E that is believed to reduce risk of lung cancer. Plantain leaf, popular in Latin American cuisine, is useful suppressing mucous and may help respiratory problems that involve congestion. Cayenne peppers are potent foods whose benefits are equal to their heat. Cayenne has been shown to relieve irritation which is great news when you’re suffering from coughs and sore throats. 4. Reduce Your Indoor Air Pollution Exposure Indoor environments can be contaminated with over 1,000 species of mold and mildew. Pet dander is a common indoor pollutant that is notorious for antagonizing allergies. Synthetic, chemical-based cleaning products are toxic substances with toxic fumes, just check the warning label! (and make your own natural alternatives instead). Upholstery, carpet, paint, and building materials are also all common sources of indoor pollution. The indoor air pollution problem is compounded by the fact that home construction has become more airtight in the last 30 years which traps pollutants inside. A drafty house may not seem the most efficient when the electricity bill arrives but there is something to be said about the constant airflow. Aside from ridding your home of the sources of pollution, air exchange systems and indoor air purification systems are good proactive approaches to purifying the air in your home. 5. Make a Castor Oil Pack for Lung Cleansing Castor oil packs are easy to make at home and work great for drawing toxins out of the body! Castor oil has long been appreciated as a general health tonic and is believed to stimulate lymphatic circulation and waste elimination. Castor oil packs are placed on the chest, perhaps similar to vapor rubs, and are thought to break up congestion and toxins. Easy, effective, and inexpensive, try it! 6. Take Lung Cleansing Herbs Plants like oregano, orange peel, elecampane, eucalyptus, peppermint, lungwort, osha root, chaparral, and lobelia have been used for hundreds of years, if not longer, as natural remedies for respiratory conditions. Individual herbal tinctures and extracts are available, or, rather than purchasing and taking each separately, There are natural lung cleansing supplement that contains organic and wildcrafted herbs known to support respiratory ailments, help with normal lung functions, and cleanse your lungs of harmful agents.

Sir, I am 21yrs old male. I'm continuing b.Tech. I could not understand my problems. I have very serious problem. But I have no one to discuss my problem. Daily i'm trying to sleep at night but I couldn't sleep. When I am going to bed I feel so uncomfortable. It means I couldn't control my sexual activities. Like I am holding pillow to sleep. Some other things also runs on mind which I can't say. From last 3 years I have some bad habits. Like watching porn, smoking cigarette. But from last three months I have left one activity which is watching porns. But still i am going through same problem. There are so many pressure on my head.

Dear, I sincerely opine that your current stress is self created obsession. Sexual fantasies, masturbation, watching porn movies etc are not sin and is good in many ways to deviate our minds from stress. Smoking cigerettes are bad for health. You should stop it. I think you are worried about something else rather than the sexual problems or relationshop problem. You need to be more clear and precise. I will help you to overcome your problems. Be brave. Take care.

Mecobalamin has negligible role in controlling anxiety. Unless you have viatmin b12 deficiency it is hardly needed as a supplement if you have a good diet. Anyways its safe to take oral mecobalamin 1500mcg if you wish so.

You have a phobia, which is fear-based and will haunt you because you tend to exaggerate a normal stimulus and therefore there is also an abnormal reaction. You should never stop drugs prescribed by a doctor without his approval. The problem is not resolved, and all that you have done is shifted the phobia to another one. You will continue to do this until you resolve this completely. The ideal way would have been for you to have sought psychotherapy simultaneously with the medical treatment. You can still do this and combine the two to get you the best results, over time. Your mind, body and emotions are now susceptible to suggestions and you will tend to do a lot of lateral thinking to increase the threatening possibilities. You need to strengthen all three while learning to handle this fear. You will need to identify this fear as to its origin, the unhealthy pattern you have developed and the over-reaction to it. Yoga and meditation will go a long way to ease it for you. You must also do regular exercise, eat healthily, sleep well, and in therapy work with your emotions to develop balance and composure. You can also do some de-conditioning work while going through these frightful journeys with a strong parent-like figure and learn and develop the confidence and discernment that the reality is quite different from what you believe. The facts and the truth has to prevail, but like you said, you know all this but to actually experience it is like a learning lesson, and if it is repeated often enough it can completely dispel the phobia.

I'm angry natured person and if someone speaks with roughly I also speaks with same as every reaction there is equal and opposite reaction. But it irritates me lot and for some longer period of this I can't come on my original stage and feel good. please tell what can I do to overcome this?

None of the feelings are to be controlled. So in that sense what you are doing is good except that you must express your feelings appropriately. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

If you are not able to study due to being depressed, it is quite understandable since concentration loss is one of the key criteria for depression. Counseling can help, as can medications if you do not have the time. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

My 15 year old daughter otherwise an intelligent girl gets v depressed in the evenings. Shes going to appear for her 10th board exams in March. She says she can't define what she feels but she feels like crying as evenings make her sad. How can I help her?

Well she might be having apprehensive anxiety about doing well in the exam. Excessive anxiety leads to depression. Depression caused by stress or exogenous depression tend to be worse in the evening. Please start talking to her, tell you love her and would continue to love her irrespective of the result. Reinforce the hardworking she has been doing and that is what is on her control. Exams are merely a way to test your knowledge and is not the ultimate. You can see a counsellor if necessary.

How to Beat Your Fears

1. First, acknowledge your fear. This is a huge first step. If you do just this today, you’ve done something great. Many of us have these fears, but they are at the back of our mind, unnoticed, unacknowledged, as we try to ignore them and pretend they’re not there. But they are there. And they affect us. So acknowledge the fear.

2. Write it down. What’s your fear? Write it on a piece of paper. Writing it down takes the fear from the dark lurking places in the back of your mind, where it has power over you, out into the light of day, where you have power over the fear.

3. Feel the fear. Recognize that you’re not alone, that we ALL have these fears. There’s nothing wrong with having this fear. Allow yourself to feel it. It’s a part of you, but it doesn’t control you. Remember you can “feel the fear and do it anyway.”

4. Ask yourself: what’s the worst thing that can happen? Often it’s not as bad as we think. Do you fear being rejected by someone? What would happen if you were? You’d lick your wounds, you’d find someone else, and you’d go on living.

5. Just do it. To beat the fear, you have to just do it. Ignore your fears and just go for it!

6. Be in the moment. Fear of failure (and other similar fears) are fears of the future. We get caught up in worrying about what might happen. When you find yourself thinking about the past or future, bring yourself back in the moment and focus on what you’re doing right at this moment.

7. Small steps. Start small. Do something you know you can do. Allow yourself to feel good about that - and then take another small baby step. Keep doing this …

8. Celebrate every success! Make a note of every single thing you do right, even the smallest little thing. Use this feeling of success to propel yourself forward and take the next step. Then keep building on each previous success ….
