I have less memory power. Will you give me suggestion. How I increase my memory power?

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I am a 27 years old female. I got married one and a half years back. I am a working woman. For the last two years my health is deteriorating. Its reflecting on my face in particular. I have always been thin. My body structure still remains the same but somehow my face is like degenerating. I am losing my looks. My skin is darkening continuously. I have a lot of pain in my legs all the time as well as a little pain in my body all over. My periods are irregular. Earlier they used to be after 2-2. 5 months. Nowadays for the last one year or so they lag by around 10-12 days. During my six months courtship I had seen two doctors as my health started getting affected and every one was saying bridal glow is missing. No issues from me being happy with the marriage or not, absolutely fine there. But the doctor gave me few medicines which I came to know dealt with depression. Moreover at that time I skipped my periods for around 3 months. After testing it came out to be polycystic ovary syndrome. I started medication, but discontinued as I felt it did not suit me and I started keeping unwell and my wedding day was approaching. At that I fell very ill with not feeling like being around people. I wanted to just sleep and be alone. Byt right after my wedding I was very fine. But of late I have a feeling at times that I am not happy. I want to cry. I suddenly become sad. I infact think a lot. If any one around me is not smiling or not talking to me I think that person is angry at me and get tensed. I feel mostly people must be talking bad about me. Earlier I never used to get angry. But now I get angry and pissed off at smallest of things. I feel suffocated at times and also feel heavy weight on my head. I dont shout out my anger but burn inside. I myself feel my blood burning when I get angry or feel like crying. I have a continuous feeling of my short comings and incapabilities and feel no one is happy with me. I also get jealous if someone is good at something particularly in which I lag like talking to people. I am an introvert and cannot striike a conversation. So if someone is very talkative I get angry. I am drowsy very often and I can sleep 24*7. I am not sure what am I suffering from if suffering at all. In text it may sound very severe though it is not that high as it appears. Please help.

Hello sir I am forgetting what I am currently doing. Especially while playing badminton. I take a serve and for the second one I forget what I did first.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

There are mehods like nicotine replacement therapy, usage of nicotine gums etc. But in my opinion you should try online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

I am 26 years old. I smoke regularly and my stamina is low day by day. I am addicted to smoke. How can I increase my stamina and quit smoking.

Homeopath, Chennai
Stamina" is the strength and energy needed to exert oneself for an extended period of time. Tips to increase stamina:- 1. Eat a healthy, balanced diet. Food is the fuel your body gets its energy from. A healthy, well-balanced diet keeps your body healthy and energized, raising your stamina. Try to eat a well-balanced, low-fat diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables and lean meats. For long-lasting energy, having up to a third of your diet be composed of starches and carbohydrates (whole wheat varieties are preferable. To keep your body steadily supplied with energy throughout get energy by eating several smaller meals throughout the day rather than one or two large meals. Snack on fruits, raw vegetables, nuts and other lean proteins between meals. Carry high-energy fruit and nut mixes with you during times of extended performance, such as hiking, cycling or cramming for final exams. 2. Stay hydrated. The health benefits of drinking lots of water are numerous - it can help you lose weight, prevent kidney stones, and much more. Water can also increase stamina by fighting muscle fatigue. Muscle tissue that is under-hydrated can under-perform, so keep your stamina up by drinking about 17 ounces of water a few hours before strenuous exercise. If you're starting on a long distance run or an extended exercise, have plenty of fluids with you so they'll be available if you get thirsty later. 3. Get plenty of physical exercise. Though it will tire you out in the short term, physical exercise increases your overall energy level and stamina over a long period of time. For optimal health and increased stamina, make time in your schedule for regular exercise. For adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate cardiovascular exercise per week (or 75 minutes of intense cardiovascular exercise), along with strength-building exercise sessions at least twice a week. 4. Sleep 7-8 hrs 5. Quit smoking and alcohol You have to increase your will power to stop smoking, be determined, homoeopathic medicines also reduce this addiction, go for constitutional homoeopathic treatment for complete cure.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. “Effective learning” techniques should help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Understanding Depression - Frequently Asked Questions About Depression!

Q. What is depression?

A: Depression is a common medical illness that affects the way one feels and thinks. It causes feeling of sadness and decreased enthusiasm/interest in life activities.

Q. What are the symptoms of depression?

A: The following are the common symptoms of depression:

  • Feeling sad most of the time 
  • Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed
  • Repeated crying spells for no reasons
  • Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Loss of energy, getting tired easily
  • Negative thinking
  • Poor concentration
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

Q. How common is depression?

A. It is one of the commonest medical illness and around one in six people will experience depression once in their life time. 

Q. How is depression different from normal sadness?

A. Feeling sad once in a while is normal however in depression sadness stays for most of the day and one is not able to feel good despite trying to do so. Even if a person cheers up once in a while, its very short lasting and gloom tends to return back.

Q. What causes depression?

A. Multiple factors are responsible. Changes in levels of certain brain chemicals such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine are the main cause. Also, genetics is an important factor. Depression tends to run in families. Finally, any stressful life event can trigger the depression. 

Q. What is “smiling depression”?

A. In some cases depression is not so evident. Patients are able to hide it from others and may keep a smile on their face, however they suffer from inside.

Q. Is depression a dangerous disorder?

A. Not really. Since its easily treatable, it can’t be called as ‘dangerous’. However, it should not be taken lightly. Depressed patients can develop medical complications like high blood pressure, diabetes etc. Also, depression is the most common cause of suicide. So prompt treatment is important.

Q. If i am feeling depressed, does that mean i am  a ‘weak person’ ?

A. Not at all. Any one can develop depression. It has got nothing to do with being strong or weak. The important thing is to accept the problem and to work on it. If someone develops ‘high blood pressure’, we don't call that person weak , similarly, we should not presume that depression occurs in weak people.

Q. But i was a very ‘positive person’. How can i develop depression?

A. You are still a ‘positive person’. Thats why you have come to seek help and get better. Please remember depression is a medical illness. Once it gets treated, you will be back to your normal happy self.

Q. Is depression treatable?

A. Absolutely yes. Between 80-90% of patients respond to treatment. A combination of medications and psychotherapy (counselling sessions) is the best approach.

Q. Do I need to take treatment lifelong?

A. Absolutely not. In majority of patients, a course of six months to one year is enough. If one have had multiple episodes of depression in the past, treatment may be longer.

Q.  But antidepressants are habit forming and have serious side effects?

A. Totally untrue. Antidepressants are not habit forming. There is no possibility of developing addiction to antidepressants. However one should not stop them suddenly. Its important to gradually decrease the dosage of medicines before stopping it. The side effects are uncommonly seen and even when they occur they are mild such as acidity, stomach upset etc. You should discuss about the side effects with your doctor.

Q. But the google search shows a lot of side effects of medications?

A. Anybody can write anything on the internet. You should not blindly trust it. The list of side effects that you see on internet includes the ones which are extremely rare, so no need to get scared of those. The doctor sitting inside the chamber has put tens of years in studying about these illnesses and treatment. Please trust your doctor more than any random google search. 

Q.  Can i do something on my own to get better?

A. Yes, many things. To start with, go for a short ten minutes run everyday. Practice yoga or meditation. Try not to be alone. But most importantly, take medicines regularly and come for therapy sessions regularly.

Depression and Anxiety Treatment Without Medication

Depression and Anxiety Treatment Without Medication

"Is there a recovery from depression without medication?"

This is a question that many people ask Dr R K Aggarwal and rather they also search for the web, talk to other doctors to seek alternative then treatment hoping that they can recover on their own without taking any treatment. Well for that answer can be very complicated as well as simple. It basically depends on the severity and persistence of the symptoms on is having.

Few people with whom Dr R K Aggarwal has had experience with has recovered fully from depression entirely on their own using some of the natural tips and treatments which are i am going to mention in this article as well.

If anyone needs to directly come and talk with, He/She is welcome to come and talk with Dr R K Aggarwal directly.

Reaching out for a help is an important part of the recovery process but to get that help can take many forms and what works for one person may not also work for another so be careful before using any methods without prescriptions.

There are effective non-drug treatment options for mild to moderate depression.

Many people with mild to moderate depression, where sleep is adequate, can recover from depression with talk therapy and adjudicative strategies such as exercise, improved nutrition, mindfulness techniques, sunlight or light therapy, support from friends, family or a support group, and lifestyle changes. All individuals with depression should rule out a medical issue which may contribute to their depressed mood. Many medical problems, including vitamin deficiencies and hormone imbalances, can contribute to depression. Getting a thorough physical exam to rule out a medical cause is important.

If there is no clear medical cause, psychotherapy which focuses on improving self-care, reengaging in pleasurable and meaningful activities, and managing negative thoughts can be helpful in many cases. Working on issues that are impacting relationships with friends, loved ones, and

family can also greatly relieve depression in some individuals.

And for some,

exploring and resolving unresolved grief or early childhood trauma may be important.

Other approaches that can contribute to recovery include bodywork, acupuncture or other alternative medical approaches, meditation, yoga, or spiritual exploration.
Taking medication for depression, when needed, should not be viewed as a failure.

However, it is important to recognize that depression is an issue as serious as diabetes, epilepsy, or even cancer. Because it involves mood, thoughts, and behavior, it can often be treated through those channels. But there are also genetic and environmental factors that make some individuals susceptible to depression and which may result in a more persistent condition that is more difficult to treat.

 Depression Symptoms, Warning Signs, Types, and Warning Signs 

Just as other conditions sometimes require medication for their treatment, depression may also require medication to fully resolve. And it is important to recover fully rather than settle for persistent mild depression. Persistent depression can become chronic and more severe over time as the brain becomes accustomed to the depressed state. Therapy and medication combined have the highest success rate in terms of resolving depression, and when therapy alone is not sufficient, it may help to consult with a doctor to discuss medication options.

It is important to remember that, when it comes to treating depression,

There is no prize for recovering “better” than another person.

Recovering without therapy, without medication—literally “on your own”— does not earn you any awards.

The prize is being emotionally healthy.

Alchol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.
