She has what is called OCD, i.e. obsessive compulsive disorder and it can be quite crippling. She must meet with a counselor and doctor immediately and follow their prescriptions. It is good for you parents to attend the meeting with the doctor and throw some light about her childhood.This is a fear-based condition and for some reason, she has not been dealing with childhood fear which has now developed these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking like you describe and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making her believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This, of course, is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, her belief will defy any logic and she will continue behaving like that even if it cripples her in her daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that she is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince her of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though she just cannot help herself. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work she may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination, much work can be achieved.

Hello, any kind of obsession (whether good or bad) is not good for us as it creates problem not for us but for our near and dear ones as well! you need to consult a psychologist for counselling sessions apart from intake homoeopathic medicines. Both together can give you the best results. Adding meditation and yoga will accentuate this effect. Medication: silicea 200/ twice daily, bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos 6x/ once at night. Take all of them for 1 month. Revert me back there after. Take care.

Overweight problems are always related to high blood pressure and anxiety. Anxiety is one of the most distressing emotions because of the co related physiology is so severe - heart pounding, stomach churning, shaking, dizziness and variety of other symptoms give you further cause to worry. The physical symptoms of anxiety play a great part in this over estimation of threat perception, as they are seen themselves as significant indicators that something is seriously wrong. Participating in physical activity reduces these symptoms. Meditation and relaxation therapy are also useful. Mindfulness exercises help a lot in anxiety related issues.

Hello sir. I think I am suffering from phobia. Always in panic. What should I do. Please help me.
Hi lybrate-user, first of all if the anxiety symptoms are severe, seek medication from psychiatrist. If you are in a busy place, e. G. Work, school, or general public. Distance yourself, going to a quieter, more secluded place where you can refocus, out of range of surprising or load sounds or many people. Breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth. This helps to slow down your breathing whilst providing your body with the optimum amount of oxygen. It is often tempting to focus on the physical symptoms of an anxiety attack, e. G. Shaking, hot and cold flushes, short and quick breathes, feeling like you want to vomit etc. Definitely acknowledge the physical things you are feeling, but do not focus on them as this can often just make you more anxious. Slow down that breathing. In through your nose, out through your mouth. This is key. Step outside and get some fresh air, take a breather, fresh air definitely helps. Also helpful to remember the anxiety is only something you feel and experience. Anxiety is not who you are. Stay connected to the people around you. It can be tempting to isolate yourself, but friendship and support is so beneficial and everyone needs people around them to help them laugh, and keep things in perspective. Consult for any clarification.

MBBS

Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol. Also , remember that smoking is harmful to your body Please remember that alcohol is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of alcohol can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol.

I am Chaitanya 20 years old. I have short memory loss problem. When I want to remember something I can't. How I improve my memory power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are young and if you implemented my suggestions, you will carry good memory far into your future. Additionally there are these left brain exercises which are tremendously useful. But here goes for the other things that can be done with great success. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well 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, 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. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

You appear to be suffering from panic disorder. This is seen in 2-3% of the people in the general community. Clonazepam (clonotril) is used as part of initial treatment but is not a definitive treatment. Proper assessment followed by treatment with an ssri medication is definitive treatment. Also, we need to assess for any comorbidities and assess triggers for such panic attacks. Treatments including cognitive behaviour therapy & relaxation techniques would be extremely helpful. Take care.

This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles.

Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear.

Hi, If you're a chronic procrastinator, you know the pain and stress that comes with putting things off. Although you may have the desire to accomplish something, getting the motivation to do it is a different matter. Fortunately, overcoming your procrastination is easy to do when you put your mind to it. Here are few ways that can help you: 1 Remind yourself that there’s always more to be done than can be done. Then ask yourself if you’re getting the right things done. 2 Make a smart to-do list by including only the items that you’re avoiding, not the ones you know you’ll do anyway. Then set deadlines. 3 Break the task down to lessen the sense of being overwhelmed. Once you start to enjoy a small accomplishment or two, you’re more likely to finish. 4 Eliminate temptation to do something else (if your Siren song is the computer, see" Tuning out digital distractions" below). 5 Bargain with yourself. If you finish the business plan now, you can go to the movies later. 6 Focus on the success you will achieve and the joy you will feel. 7 Come up with a consequence that will deter you from avoiding the task. If you don’t exercise two times a week, you have to give up talking on the phone with your friends. 8 Ask someone to help you complete the task. 9 Make your intentions public. This will add pressure, but for some of us, avoiding embarrassment is the mightiest motivator.

Hi lybrate-user! You have gone through difficulties in life, struggled hard, as you told life in Kashmir is really tough, that is the reason your heart and mind is so soft and sensitive. I will suggest you it is up to you to carry out or not, you can do some social service like providing food for the poor, food or clothing or donation to the orphans or orphanage, which will give you emotional satisfaction. You need to keep going on and on right. There are people who are good as well as bad, it is a mixture of good and evil, you can't actually stay stagnant at one point and keep thinking about this 4G life, which is Kaliyug according to Lord Vishnu, if you do so people will cheat and let you down. You are good, be good, do good, live good, but do not interfere in others affair unless otherwise you have the power to do so, it is proverb survival of the fittest, that is this 4G LIFE AND WORLD. Everything has changed. So you need to do your duty alone cannot expect the result. Soul as you know is immortal, it takes the place of another body after one body is destructed just like tearing our clothes, that is the chain. Be strong. Be good. Live good till your breath. Take care.

*Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed*Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. The problem can be treated by homeopathy and without adverse effects. Take Nux vomica 200 twice daily. For further help,you may opt for private consultation. (Prime Rs. 149/)

Dear , why do you want to commit suicide? there are no problems in life which cannot be solved. Otherwise, because of the life given problems, almost half of the earth's population should commit suicide. See the fate of african country people. They are starving for everything and their suicide rate far too less than indian people. Wrong perception is the key. Please provide me more information and details. I will help you overcome any problems. Believe me. Take care.
