I am 23 years old my prblm is that when I'm studying my concentration is very low so please help mi to how increased my confidence.

I suppose you mean your confidence in studying. Here goes: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your 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, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Hello doctor, my husband is 44 years old. He is an alcoholic. I wanted to stop his this bad habit. But he does not believe that he is alcoholic nor interested visiting anti alcoholic center. Now a days, for no reason he is showing his anger on everyone i.e me, kids, road side passers by. Using abusing languages, yelling / shouting for no reasons. Please help me out with some medicine so that, he unknowingly stops his drinking habit.

DNB, DPM, MBBS

The elements of treatment appropriate for patients with severe alcohol problems are fairly straightforward. The core of these efforts involves steps to maximize motivation for abstinence, helping alcoholics to restructure their lives without alcohol, and taking steps to minimize a return, or relapse, to substance-using behaviors. Intervention The goal in this step is to break through feelings of denial and to help the patient recognize the adverse consequences likely to occur if the disorder is not treated. Reaching out to the Family The family can be of great help in the intervention. Detoxification Most people with alcohol dependence have relatively mild symptoms when they stop drinking Mild or Moderate Withdrawal--can be managed by giving medicine for 3 to 5days. Severe Withdrawal --in hospital. Rehabilitation For most patients, rehabilitation includes three major components: (1) continued efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, (2) work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and (3) relapse prevention. if any further details are required Let me know.

I am getting sex thoughts every day if I have seen a lady who seems sexy and I am unable to control. Please help.

I am getting sex thoughts every day if I have seen a lady who seems sexy and I am unable to control. Please help.
There is no need to be alarmed to this extent. Between the ages of 16 to 18 years, for a duration of almost exactly two years, all boys and girls will have a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone. Due to this hormone there are three identified effects, all because of this chemical: you will become sexually active; you will become aggressive and rebellious; and you will all suffer acne and pimple problems. You have no choice because this is a body clock mechanism that gets activated and over the two years that it prevails, it will gradually subside and return to normal. But during this time you could (driven by the hormones) do something inadvertent that there may be no turning the clock back. So you need to exercise control and channelize this energy through games and sports and hobbies. Also you would have developed secondary sexual characteristics and they seek to be used and seek fulfillment. Again this is not a problem but the drive can be very bad for those who do not have sufficiently well developed value systems or a good conscience. These kids can lose control and become reckless. Most kids have a problem, like you do, around their sexual urges and may resort to acting out in the form of masturbation, pornography, and other sexual exploits. If you indulge in any of these you can get into a guilt trip or develop an addiction that may plague you for a long time. There is no threat to your mental well being. Your character will certainly be tested, and it will reflect your development in this regard. The best thing to do is to get a sex education from a counselor and ask all the questions you wish answered. Otherwise you will want to experiment or seek information from your peers who are not adequately qualified to really do justice to your queries.

Addiction of tobacco, smoking , drinking or drugs only depends on yours mind. You have to exercise your mind only. Eat green food and fruits more . Take apple in breakfast daily. Do walk in park and do yoga, exercise and meditation are golden remedies . Which trains your mind within a week. If you do it in an appropriate manner. Close your eyes and feel fresh air think that you do not have a need of any kind of addiction. Do it again and again. Try to find out other good things of your interest. Which will be more fruitful for whole life. Remember. Life is not for wasting. Make it useful and fruitful for urself and for others. make life worth living. dont just pass life, live life....

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.

Dear lybrate user. You have to first understand that you are you. You have your own set of skills and capabilities, good points and bad points, good attitude and negative attitude. You are made by your own thinking and actions, never by others. Therefore, ignore what others say and be self respecting. Take care.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear, you are in love with your wife. Aren't you? if your answer is no, you should introspect. Wife is your companion. If you see only sex and pleasure, then the relationship has no meaning. I suggest you to change your attitude towards your wife. You can have feelings and crunches towards other woman. But you should love your wife. You should be passionate towards your wife. Please consult a psychologist for online relationship counseling or face to face counseling. Take care.

Mr. lybrate-user the description of the symptoms you have described suggest you have predominantly anxiety problem. Anxiety symptoms occur in any individual due to neurotransmitter changes, in the brain which doesn't have any clear cut structural abnormalities in Mri or CT scan. So brain imaging usually is not necessary. But you need detailed evaluation. Few medical conditions like hypertension, hypoglycaemia, hyperthyroidism, anemia etc can also produce the same symptoms. Victofol inj is not going to help you for anxiety problem. Kindly consult a psychiatrist immediately for detailed evaluation and treatment.

Treatment for smoking and drinking varies according to the degree of addiction. Some medicines, nicotine patches, nicotine gum, lozenges etc should help tobacco craving. You, being a good loving and affectionate wife should be able to motivate him to quit smoking and drinking. Take care.

Good Morning ~ Fear is not an uncommon feature in anxiety problems and will usually result in inability to maintain normal physiological functions like sleep and daytime daily routine activities. If the problem is occurring for the last one year and has recently worsened, I will certainly be able to help you with medications and you need to book an appointment with the undersigned as soon as possible. I hope you have had a cardiac investigation done to rule out any cardiac issues.

I had quit smoking, what the the steps, exercises and anything more to do for having good health?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on your success with quitting smoking. This is incredible and you must keep it up under any circumstances. You have also stopped the damage smoking does to sperm and to your erectile capacity. You need to now bring improvement to your lungs by doing a lot of aerobic exercise while breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. Exercise regularly and eat healthily. Avoid the company of smokers always until you have passed three years of abstinence and you will find it easier to refuse. Never try it at any time although it is possible to go back to smoking, it is equally possible to stop again. But why would you want to trouble yourself again. You have succeeded so enjoy that victory over this evil habit. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.
