I am also taking medha vati of patanjali product. Is it good for brain enhancement. In this it is written that it help in depression. And used as brain tonic and memory enhancer. I do not have depression but I want to improve my brain memory.

Memory improvement happens if you exercise your brain just like when we exercise our body, the muscles and the bones become strong and overall the body become well toned and flexible . Medicines or nutrients do play a role but with out practicing it would not be effective. Develop a habit of revising what ever you read or study. Do creative things like drawing or painting or any hobby of your choice. When the mind is relaxed it can focus in a better way and grasp things more efficiently. Therefore sports or exercise is also essential as it relaxes the mind and the body. Also solve puzzles or mind games to sharpen your brain power. Learn the skills that do not have from others and share your skill with others.

Hi I'm a 19 year old male and I'm suffering from canker sore, I know that it is mainly due to lack of water for me and sometimes I just forget to drink water at all due my concentration level I guess such as while playing games and doing interesting research or working on some project. Please tell me how to inculcate such a habit so that I never forget to drink water. Thanks.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by making it a habit to carry water with you and drink every half hour Most canker sores clear on their own in one to two weeks. Treatments, if needed, include mouth rinses, pastes and medication..

Control your Anxiety:

Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).
These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.
Examples of anxiety disorders include social anxiety disorder (social phobia), specific phobias and separation anxiety disorder. A person can have more than one anxiety disorder.
Sometimes anxiety results from a medical condition that needs treatment.
Acupuncture Treatment for Anxiety:
The realities of treating anxiety are that different people require different treatments, even when suffering from the same type of anxiety. That's because different people have different personalities, different needs, and of course, different symptoms. That's why to get a personalized treatment and depending on root cause Acupuncture will give long lasting results,

Dear Lybrate user. Feeling nauseated or giddy could be due to many physiological reasons like acute fever, ear imbalance, neurological issues etc. You need to consult a physician to analyze the cause. Take care.

My mother put a thing and after some time, She forget that where does she put the thing. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your mother could be under a lot of stress and that is why she is forgetting little things. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if she goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else she is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that her 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. 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. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect her memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. See how many of these exercises she can incorporate in her daily life and if the problem persists let her meet with a counselor to deal with the stress.

If I occasionally dream of someone I lost a few years ago in an accident, what does it mean?

Psychologist, Bangalore
If I occasionally dream of someone I lost a few years ago in an accident, what does it mean?
It probably means that you are either missing that person or still have strong memories of that person. Our dreams are a combination of our own desires, memories, experiences, imagination etc. Hence all dreams may not really mean anything. But if you occasionally have this dream then you need to understand your more subtle feelings about losing that person. If it was after an accident, then it was a shock for you. It might have caused some trauma for you. Understand and accept your feelings of loss, sadness, pain and grief. Eventually you need to" let it go" life is a flow. We lose some people but for the survivors, the journey continues. When your mind accepts that, the deceased person is not going to come back and you need to move ahead in life, tell yourself that, that person has gone away and you have a life ahead without you. You will learn to let go of that person and move on.

I am addict to alcohol what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Depending on how much you drink and how long you have been drinking, you may need to go for detoxification. This may be done either in a hospital or in a rehabilitation center itself. It is a way of clearing all the toxins related to the alcohol and this will make it easy for you to remove the physical craving. It will also help to deal with the withdrawal syndrome when abstaining from alcohol consumption. You will need the help of a therapist and a support group called the aa, alcoholics anonymous. They follow a very effective and time-tested 12 step program for the recovery. You will need to avoid all associations to drinking: friends, places, habits, companions, and times, for a short period until you get over the addictive drive. You may take liquid substitutes when the drinking urge is strongest as an oral stimulant. Examples of these would be: soups, buttermilk, juices, pepper water, tender coconut water etc. Start a completely new set of habits, behaviors, social circles, entertainment sources, and learn to be happy without the drink. There is a concept called script work, which is where the success of your recovery can have a lasting and effective impact. You must make some plans around salary time, and how to save money, and clear debts that you might have accumulated when you were drinking. Ideally, you should admit yourself to the rehabilitation center where all these things and more are done and practiced.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Dear Akash. Welcome to lybrate. Watching sex videos repeatedly comes under addiction. Because your brain pleasure centre is activated during watching porn and because it became a habit, you are addicted. You should try to engage in other activities such as physical exercises, games and entertainment. Slowly this addiction will wean off. Worrying about this habit can cause anxiety and therefore, stop worrying. Take care.

You are distracting from your aim. It shows weakness of your mind and nothing else. Just control your mind and think about your future. Studies is the easiest way to attain success and sometimes even glory. You will realise my words after few years. Just concentrate your mind on your studies and be focused because you will be known by your own name only after you attain heights and studies is a short cut to attain new heights. So always keep this in mind and target your goals, you will never forget. I will help you in this direction by prescribing you homoeopathic medicines----------- bacoppa monneri (wilmar schwabe india) chew 2 tab twice daily------- bren-up (allen) drink 2 spoon 3 times daily------------- bramhari pranayam daily for 15 minutes ------- report after 30 days-----------------

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Dear friend, thanks for the query. Are you married or unmarried? Are you sexually active or recently being involved in any physical relationship? Do you also have problems of night falls or passage of semen (DHATU) in urine? If YES, then you need Psychiatric consultation in addition to urology/nephrology referral. If you need further clarification, you can contact me. Regards
