Is my lover needed medical treatment for work addiction of 20 years for my friend who is 25 years just now?
Hi I will prescribe you some harmless flower remedy available at all homoeopathy shops. Mix 7 drops of impatiens + 7 drops of pine. Mix these with 50 ml water. Take this daily before sleeping. Consult me online if you have any problems. Ok do not worry.

I am 24.5 years old. I want to quit smoking tell me some easy but very effective methods. Just tell me how to control this feeling.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I can not concentrate on my study due to destruction of weird sex thinking.Is this a bad symptom of anything?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Absolutely not. Obsession about sex has been an old haunt of mankind. However, when it cripples you in anyway, then it is of concern. If it is occasional, like I imagine in your case, it may go away in the same manner it came. But if you indulged in it, it will continue and will plague you to distraction. So what to do? Just don?t indulge in it. When it comes, look at it, like it, and then let it go. Channelize your energy into some active contact games, regularly. Also meet up and socialize with heterogeneous groups and learn what it takes to relate to both sexes, comfortably. Learn that meeting with girls does not have to be only sexually oriented. There are so many things that happen between boys and girls and so much to learn about the opposite gender to help you to relate to them in a refined manner. Sex is sacred and you need to have respect for the opposite gender. Over time, you will develop a healthy attitude and good self-control around your sexual impulses and will turn out to be a thorough gentleman. I suggest you also get some sex education from a reliable source and know its nuances and impulse generation capacity. You will also learn how to deal with the sexual drive, whenever it comes on.

My son is 29 years old. Dr. diagnosed him as schizophrenia since last 8 years. Now a days he is refusing to take medicines. Antiphyscotic medicine was going on. We are giving him risperidone 1.5ml morning, 1.5 ml evening olanzapine 15mg evening and aripiprazole 10mg morning. We were giving these medicines without telling him. But alternative episodes are according after about every 15 days. I want to know such type of medicine which stop the symptoms and stop the future episodes. Is any medicine exist which prevent this disease and a person could live its normal life. Is ETC a better treatment for schizophrenia? Frequently ETC is required for this disease? kindly intimate.

Hello, schizophrenia is a disorder characterised by delusions, hallucinations, fear, anger, and negative symptoms like reduced motivation, speech and activity. It does have exacerbations and remissions, but frequent episodes every 15 days is seen more commonly in mood disorder. There are drugs available for refractory schizophrenia. Also optimising dose of current anti psychotics with addition of a mood stabilizer is helpful. Ect is used to treat schizophrenia, particularly for positive symptoms like delusions, hallucinations or suicidal ideas. Take care.

The most important thing is how are you feeling? no body can be in a better position than you, who can tell, whats good for you. So if you are feeling better without the medication, then you can continue without it. Do not be preoccupied by the feeling that you will not do good. More than the condition your thoughts will hurt you. So live freely, do your work, get active, do any form of exercise, do what makes you happy, drink lots of water. Try these things and get back to me and tell me how you feel.

Hi I am in 7 yrs relationship but now the man is changed and I am suffering from personal life carrer and from home please I have tried comitt sucide

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Suicide is no solution. Don? t ever die for another man unless you do so in an attempt to save the person. Your life is your gift to you by god: you must therefore treasure it and look after it as something very special and precious. I was not clear in your question when you say? the man is changed. Has he changed and become a bad person, or are you saying that he has left you for another? I suppose you mean the latter. I know that 7 years is a long time of knowing a person and presumably you thought that it was all sewed up and stitched. If he left because of something you did or said, you must introspect and see how serious that was, or has he chosen to make it bigger than what it is. If he was looking for a chance to get out of the relationship and found one, he is not worth the salt. Whatever the explanation, you must take it as good riddance to bad rubbish. But it is difficult and very painful, and perhaps disgraceful in front of all your friends. However, it is for this reason more so that you are saying you do not want to be in a relationship where the other person is not interested in you. You must get back to your career and get going with your life. There are three things you must do: be responsible, be respectful, and be functional, whatever happens. Get rid of all reminders of this guy and do not go to places, people and situations that you two used to frequent. And above all talk extensively about this relationship until it is exhausted from your system. But do not go around giving him bad publicity. Do talk to a confidante or counselor. At your age it must be extremely shattering but that gives you more reason to prove to yourself that you are made of better stuff than this. Love yourself enough to take this in your stride but do not go into victim mode. You will one day look back at this relationship and wonder why you were into it for so long. Believe me, it will defy all logic.

alcohol in any quantity is bad for health in a normal person and more so in a person with diabetes. Plus taking regular treatment for diabetes is a must. Please understand diabetes is just not increase in sugar, it affects every single organ in the body like eyes (retina- leading to blindness), affects blood vessels supplying lower limbs and heart, leading to ulcers on the non healing on foot, going up to amputation, coronary artery disease causing silent heart attacks, kidney damage and neuropathy. So controlling blood sugar effectively is absolutely essential as well as avoiding alcohol consumption. Alcohol affects liver, patient fail to recognise hypoglycemia, affects stomach causing gastritis. Talk to him about these things, may get convinced. Thanks for the question.

Break up means you learned good lesson. Do not do that mistake again. Take some gap of the relations. Better to maintain friendly relations with boys. Maintain distance with girls. Concentrate on your work. Better to spend most of the time with family members and friends. Dot be alone. Feel always comfortable. Do not feel and think about depression. Feel always I am ok. I have no problems. Think always in a positive manner, ok best wishes.

He is studying engineering, he has problem with memory power and concentration, so what is the solution and how to boost the memory power?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will benefit from these suggestions if you follow them meticulously. Meet with a counselor who will help you deal with the issues of youth and many problems will get resolved. Your age is a major factor in this problem of memory loss and what seems like a weak mind. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

No. Not at all we all are different as individuals. Feeling possessive is just an expression of ones internal insecurity. If you feel worried or insecure about losing him that in turn makes you more possessive. If he had felt the same he would have been possessive the same way.

How to improve our mental ability without any yoga and tell me also that how can I use time management at time of mental work like study, playing games, using any other activity?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
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 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation 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. Stop Using 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!

When you lost your dear one it is common to get anxious. This will remain for some time and will fade after some time. But in the mean time you should also concentrate in your present work. You need to plan short time goals and attain it. I can assist you by providing online counseling for the same.

There can be both reason simultaneously. Quit smoking, as it reduces oxygen level in body hence causes feeling of tiredness in body, because cells of body cannot get proper oxygen for working.

Is permanent cure of schizophrenia possible? If person stop medicine when he or she is normal and stable Is there is a chance to happen again?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Schizophrenia is treatable disorder just like diabetes and any metabolic disease. It requires a course of medications initially to bring severe symptoms under control and then stabilise with lesser doses. A maintenance therapy of minimal dose might be required to prevent relapses. This maintenance therapy (in a patient who has successfully achieved remission of symptoms with regular medications) may range from 2-5 years. In about 1/3 rd cases of frequent relapses or severer symptoms maintenance therapy may be required for even a longer time.

Her headaches might be because of tensions. From the symptoms you described, it does not appear to be like migraine. Encourage her to share her worries with you or someone who she can trust. Assure her of your support as well. Tell her that you love her and you care for her. Tell her that when she is worried you also get affected and you both together can find some solutions to your problems. Also ask her to avoid going out in the mornings presently, as it is very hot outside because of summers. Ask her to drink plenty of water. See if she is having her food properly or not. In spite of doing all this, if the headache continues then consult a doctor. Avoid self medication. Take care.
