Brief Answer: Few steps that you can follow Detailed Answer: HI Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query. Stress increases underline gastric upset. If you have stress or IBS both, in that case, you need low dose antidepressant that would decrease level of stress. You have follow certain steps to get good digestive balance: 1. Maintain sleep. You should get minimum 6 hours sleep daily. In case, you are not getting it due to stressful life, then you can start a low dose sleeping pills after psychiatrist consultation. 2. Do regular morning exercise. This would help to keep the digestive system in proper circulation. After exercise blood circulation would increase and that would keep you healthy. 3. Avoid excessive tea or coffee. It would increase gastric upset and sleep disturbance. Try to avoid them. 4. Take healthy diet. Diet should include fibers in form of salad, fruits. That would help to take proper motion. Usually people avoid salad, but this is one of the reason for constipation. Salad would not show result immediately. It would take a week to show response, but after that you would feel better. 5.If you have underline depression or stress, can take low dose antidepressant after psychiatrist consultation. I would prefer des-venlafaxine in your case due to its less gastric side effects. Rest you can discuss with your psychiatrist. You can carry on these herbal products. In case, you need further help, you can ask. Regards Dr. Abhishek Kapoor Psychiatrist

Brief Answer: Life style modification Detailed Answer: HI I do not know about your personal and professional life. Stress is related to our personal and professional work. I suggest the following to all my patients who look for natural means to combat stress and IBS. 1. Relaxation exercise in form of yoga, meditation etc. It would help you to keep calm even in stressful condition. 2. Life style modification by spending weekend with your family or away from the work. Sometime due to continuous work, people feel stressful and would not enjoy their life. Better to go for outing when ever you get time. 3. Morning walk is one of best medicine to keep healthy and active. It would keep you energetic for rest of day. 4. For sound sleep, you can do evening walk after dinner. That would help in digestion as well as keep you fit. These are not miracle cure that work immediately; however there are lot of satisfied patients who follow the above regiment religiously. I recommend that you follow them. Besides those, it is important that you consume plenty of fluids and fibre rice food. Additional salads in your food is a means to make sure you have enough fibre and fluid. These are few general tips which you can follow. Rest, tell me something about your profession or personal life like your working hour or any issue in personal life, so I can suggest you few more alternative.

Brief Answer: Read this Detailed Answer: Hi If your sister is not ready for marriage, i think, there is no need to force her. Marriage is not about a year or two. You can not force any one for marriage. It should be someone personal decision. Let her plan her life, she wants to plan. I think, you should get married as soon as possible. May be the moment she sees you happy in married life, she would change her mind. Few people need some motivation to do something. May be your sister is that kind of girl who is looking for some motivation for marriage. You could motivate her by getting yourself married. May be possible, you would become her source of motivation. This would also give you some relaxation. After marriage, you would get one partner with whom you can share your feeling. This is the best way to stress yourself out. More you would share your feeling, more you would feel better. In this situation, your partner would be the best person. At least after daughter marriage, your mom would be little bit relax. Rest this would be your personal decision. Regards Dr. Abhishek Kapoor Psychiatrist
