I am studying in class 11. When I study any subject like physics chemistry or maths I read the notes properly and after 24 hrs I forget what I read. I cannot remember for long time. So what I should do now.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Pune
1Keep a daily to-do list. Keep a small notepad where you can write down tasks that need to be done. If you are in the middle of something important and get interrupted, writing down what you need to do later will help you remember. 2.Use a calendar for scheduling activities. If you're busy with school, work, or caring for your family, it can be hard to keep track of all the assignments, meetings, and events going on each day, week, or month. A calendar will help you to avoid forgetting when something is due as well as the exact time and date. 3.Try creating habits. If, for example, you always forget to pack your yoga mat for class after work, you can work on making this part of your daily routine and create a new habit. Making something a habit takes time (longer for some than for others), but it can be done. Try forming habits by using the 3 Rs: Reminder, Routine, Reward. 4.Identify distractions that lead to forgetting. With a busy and stressful lifestyle, there may be things that you or others do that distract you from getting things done. Distractions can be your own avoidance technique, or they can be external forces that inhibit focus and concentration 5.Make time to relax. Avoid filling your day with too many meetings, events, or chores such that you have no "down time." Being busy is not a competition, and your mind shouldn't feel like it's on overdrive on a regular basis. Allow yourself to have time to yourself, so that you aren't overworked and overstressed. 6.Exercise your brain. Keeping your brain active through games or hobbies that stimulate focus and help you mental strength. While exercising the whole body keeps you healthy and reduces stress, try these activities to help you keep your brain healthy 7.Be aware of your family medical history. Does your family have a history of dementia, a thyroid disorder, or a mental health condition? 8.Eat healthy. Your diet affects all aspects of your body including the brain. Boost your body and brain's ability to focus and retain memories through healthy eating habits and avoiding junk food. Make sure to drink plenty of water. Consider these brain healthy foods 9.Get a good night's rest. Getting enough sleep (generally between seven to nine hours a night) will allow your mind and body time to recuperate and relax before another busy day begins. Denying yourself adequate sleep could lead to a lack of focus, forgetfulness, and impaired ability to do daily activities. 10.Exercise. Regular exercise has proven to not only help you stay in shape and keep your heart healthy, but it also helps to get the blood flowing to the brain. Keeping active therefore not only helps the body but also the mind. Consider these ways to keep fit For medication consult online in private.

Depression - Symptoms And How Homeopathy Can Help!

MD - Homeopathy
Psychiatrist, Kanpur
Depression - Symptoms And How Homeopathy Can Help!

Depression is recognized as a mood disorder characterized by the prolonged feeling of sadness and loss of interest in otherwise regular activities.

The symptoms include:

  • loss of sleep and appetite
  • loss of interest
  • persistent feeling of sadness and lowered self-esteem
  • difficulties with eating
  • difficulties with concentration or attention
  • feelings of guilt and worthlessness

These symptoms should last for a minimum of 4 weeks for the individual to be diagnosed with depression. Sometimes, at its later stages, depression can also be accompanied by suicidal tendencies. Most people who are feeling depressed don’t experience every symptom, and the presentation of symptoms varies in degree and intensity from person to person.

Can it be cured successfully?

The short answer is yes. According to central council of homoeopathy and countless research has showed that depression is readily treated with homoeopathic medicine and short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy. For most people, a combination of the two works best and is usually what is recommended. Psychotherapy approaches scientifically proven to work with depression include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.

What is the cause of depression?

The exact reason is not known to us but it is believed that the imbalance in trigger release of chemical system in brain is responsible for developing it. These chemicals are called neurotransmitters (such as serotonin and norepinephrine). Neurotransmitters are needed for normal brain function and are involved in the control of mood and in other responses and functions, such as eating, sleep, pain, and thinking. That’s the reason when a person suffers with depression; a lot of related functions get disturbed.

Why homoeopathy has a great therapeutic role in depression?

Homoeopathy medicine is given on the basis of person thinking, feeling, behavior, sleep pattern, eating behavior and mood. That’s why it is most appropriate to particular person in restoring the brain chemical balance. By restoring the brain’s chemical balance, the homoeopathic medicine help relieve the symptoms of depression. However, these are but short-term solutions to depression and don’t necessarily cure the individual completely. For the treatment to be effective, the drug intake must be combined with psychotherapy to solve the problem at the root level.

Advantages of using Homeopathy for Depression:

The best part of homeopathic treatment is that the homeopathic medicines are totally side effect free and its long-term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation. The options in conventional treatments are either to take antidepressant medications or to remain depressed, however, homeopathic medicines are said to be side-effect free and its long-term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation.

There are a lot of medications in homeopathy which are used, post understanding of the behaviour of a person; his/her complete biological and genetic status, his/her existing medical conditions. It is always recommended to consult a homeopath and not to go for self-medication, as it requires specific potencies of medicines for them to be effective on the medical condition.

Beyond Treatment: Things You Can Do​

  • Try to be active and do exercise regularly.
  • Set realistic goals everyday for yourself. Make a chart of it.
  • Try to spend time with other people and confide in a trusted friend or relative.
  • Try not to isolate yourself, and let others help you.
  • Expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately.
  • Postpone important decisions, such as getting married or divorced, or changing jobs until you feel better. Discuss decisions with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation.
  • Continue to educate yourself about depression.

Note: Depression is a fairly common mental health disorder today, affecting a large population. Depression must be acknowledged as a proper mood disorder and not just a passing phase. It is completely curable with proper medicine and therapeutic sessions. The individual is able to move over the feelings of unhappiness and lack of interest with proper care and acceptance from loved ones in addition to therapy and the drugs, of course.

I use to take alcohol daily I want to live it but with out alcohol I don't get sleep and some people say's if I live alcohol in will get some problems in my body is that true how should I overcome from this problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Even if you take alcohol daily, it depends on he amount and the effect it has on you. What they are talking about is called withdrawal syndrome i.e. There will be an adverse reaction due to the cessation of alcohol. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

13 Principal Reasons For Suicidal Ideation ?

13 Principal Reasons For Suicidal Ideation ?

Suicidal thoughts are quite universal and commonly experienced by people undergoing severe stressSuicidal ideations usually occur when a person feels that they are no longer able to cope, especially with an overwhelming situation. As these situations and thoughts are temporary; some do not carry it through, while others may be at a risk of attempting or committing suicide. Since the suicidal rate is increasing in today’s world; it becomes essential to identify the risk factors that are responsible for such behaviour and are given below:

  1. Many times students tend to have a high self-set standard for themselves, when they are unable to achieve those, they feel like a failure.
  2. In teenage or early adulthood academic pressureworkplace stresssocial pressuresrelationship concerns, and the lack of support systems are some of the reasons for suicidal ideation.
  3. High expectations from parents also have an impact on the child’s psyche and may lead to emotional instability. Mostly, parents put greater emphasis on marks, which soon starts to define the self-worth of the child.
  4. Children tend to take an extreme step because of stressfear of being scolded from parents or unhealthy parenting style. Later, stress grows into frustration and in extreme conditions, it can even turn into depression.
  5. The rise of suicide rate is due to urbanization and the disintegration of the traditional large family support system. As Indians become more progressive, their conservative households become less supportive of their choices pertaining to financial independencemarriagepremarital sexrehabilitation and taking care of the elderly.
  6. History of mental illnesssubstance abuseviolence, has a negative impact on the individual’s life and puts them at the very risk of suicidal tendency. The individual may be disposed to it directly or indirectly.
  7. Individuals with a history of traumatic events where the individual has been emotionalphysicallysexually abused or even bullied during the childhood, may develop a low self-esteem resulting in the feelings of worthlessness.
  8. Breakupinfidelity or death of a loved one can also create a negative perception of life, causing the very feelings and thoughts of ending one’s life.
  9. Deprived of family supportfinancially as well emotionallydeath of a parent or adverse parent interaction also has a toll towards feeling empty or isolated.
  10. Being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, especially when the individual is prone to devastating thoughts and feelings can increase the risk involved.
  11. Suicidal ideation is a common symptom in many psychiatric disorders and mental health issues like DepressionBipolar disorderBorderline Personality Disorder etc.
  12. Sometimes people get associated with peers having suicidal ideations, thus, identifying with them can push them at the risk of such behaviour.
  13. Overwhelming situations like unemploymentfinancial losses or being in a debt can also cause an inability to cope with the life stressors and can have a negative impact on the individuals thought process.

Ayurveda Approach On Alcohol And Nicotine De-addiction!

Ayurveda Approach On Alcohol And Nicotine De-addiction!

What happens when you are addicted to a chemical substance? You lose control of your life. It doesn’t matter what you are addicted to alcohol, nicotine or drugs the effects are the same. It is usually not easy to get rid of an alcohol and/or nicotine addiction. Most people find it difficult to give up these substances even after years in de-addiction therapy. Hence, it’s prudent to let Ayurveda, the ancient science of healing handhold us in getting rid of addictions. 

Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT. Perhaps this list of ingredients that are found in cigarettes is enough to make you want to quit smoking for good! - Lowell Kleinman, M.D., and Deborah Messina-Kleinman, M.P.H?

Addiction - The Ayurvedic View
Ayurveda considers alcohol and nicotine consumed in large quantities as ‘Visha’ or toxic. According to Ayurveda, alcohol has the following properties-

  1. Light or Laghu
  2. Hot or Ushna
  3. Sharp or Tikshna
  4. Drying or Visada
  5. Rough or Ruksha
  6. Expensive or Vikaasa
  7. Swift or Aasuga
  8. Sour or Amla
  9. Subtle or Sookshma

These properties are all opposite to the qualities that ojas possesses. Ojas has all life-giving properties and alcohol and nicotine have life-negating qualities.

Why do humans get addicted to alcohol and nicotine?
Human brain produces Dopamine normally and what alcohol does is to activate the nervous system to promote dopamine formation. The brain thus remembers the taste of alcohol and nicotine by creating special cells called receptor cells. As a person increases the quantity of alcohol, these cells also increase in numbers. When the person wants to give up his addictions these receptor cells agitate and create withdrawal symptoms with unpleasant and even dangerous symptoms.

De-addiction - Ayurveda Way
De-addiction treatments in Ayurveda comprise the following:

  1. Purification therapies or Panchkarma: These are used for getting rid of all toxins present in the patient’s body. These must always be done under the supervision of an ayurvedacharya as they are quite potent. After Panchakarma, the patient is given vomiting therapy or Vamana, followed by purgative therapy or Virechana, Basti or enema therapy and administration of Nasya or nasal drops therapy. All these help in detoxifying the body and mind and prepare the patient for further de-addiction ayurvedic treatments like Rasayana therapies which nourish and strengthen the body after Panchkarma. For treatment of addictions, Rasayana treatments include changes in diet and use of oral herbal medicines both.
  2. Herbal medicines used in de-addiction: A range of herbal medicines and their combinations are used in the treatment of addictive problems in Ayurveda and these are to be consumed orally. Ayurveda prescribes Chamomile and Ashwagandha in combination to heal the lungs. These help in cleansing lungs of smoke- related problems. Doctors also prescribe congestion relieving herbs like ginger and pepper mixed with honey or lemon. 

In addition, herbs to improve memory, concentration and to fight depression are also given. These are:

  1. Shankhpushpi
  2. Kanphool or dandelion
  3. Brahmi
  4. Ashwagandha

In addition, herbs to treat sleep disturbances like Jatamansi, Sarpgandha, Brahmi and Jaiphal are also prescribed. Since most addicts have impaired liver function, herbs that improve liver function like Aloe Vera, Punarnava, Long pepper, Kutki, Tulsi are given to revive the liver.

Mai apne cigarette ki aadat ko kaise band karu na chahte huye v mai smoke kar leta hu So please gave me useful idea.

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, MPHIL
Psychologist, Mumbai
Kisi bhi aadat ko stop karna toh hamare khud ke haath mein hota hai, agar aap na chahate hue bhi smoke kar lete hain toh kahin na kahin aap is aadat ko seriously drop karna nahin chahte. Agar aap smoking seriously drop karna chahte hain toh aap yeh try kijiye ke small goals set kar len, decide ki aap aane vale 1 week smoke nahin karenge, once you have achieved that, decide for the next one week, aise small goals se agar aap serious hain toh aapki aadat choot jaayegi. All the best!

My father is 60 years old and since the last few years, they face difficulty in understanding and analyzing complex thoughts. (They were extremely good in these tasks till their 40s). Besides, they loose their temper very quickly, irritated most of the time and never ever willing to take any external help. We tried certain puzzles, brain training apps and other things but they are always reluctant. With time, we feel their cognitive abilities are deteriorating very fast. What shall we do?

When intrusive thoughts are fear based, it's key not to push it away. Talk yourself down and tell yourself its fine. Accept that the obsessive thought is there and don't try to resist the experience. You may feel tension all throughout your body but it will pass.
