One of the reasons for hallucinations is psychotic disorder, but keep mind healthy, Simply drink cow's milk in night about 2 hours after dinner three times in a week strictly. Keep your mind busy in reading, studies or services which are constructive. Do take multivitamin tablet like Becozinc two or three times in a week after food. Keep discipline in eating, rest and work timings. Make it a point to do meditation of any genuine process, preferably transcendental meditation. Pl establish your divinity by chanting any Names of God Who you have faith in. Be tolerant and have patience. Pl see" For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy. And also" From wherever the mind wanders due to its flickering and unsteady nature, one must certainly withdraw it and bring it back under the control of the Self. Hope this helps.

Hello Sir, I'm a 24 year old male and suffering from depression due to lack of study. I'm appearing for this year's civil services exam which will be held in August. Thoughts like whether I would be able to clear it or not, if not what will I do in my career etc comes frequently in my mind. So I urgently need your help?

Hello Sir, I'm a 24 year old male and suffering from depression due to lack of study. I'm appearing for this year's c...
Please don't label yourself with depression if you haven't gotten a professional diagnosis. This will only hamper your recovery and taking proactive steps to help you out of your emotional stress. 1. It seems that the results will impact your life a lot and decide your future. Please remember to give these exams and results only that much importance that they are due for. Ovethinking aboit it is only adding stress and not helping you at all. Life is much more than these exams. In the longer run, your mental, physical and emotional wellbeing will help you find solutions to all your problems. So take care of your body and mind. 2. The studies and preparations are in your control so focus on that. Do your best to prepare well and cover all the necessary portions well. Join study groups etc to get a stronger grip of your subjects. The result is not in your control. So stop over thinking and catastrophising. If you do well you will get a job. If you don't get a job, have a plan b and c in mind. Talk to other students and hear what they would do in a worst case scenario. In india, there are always other options available but you need to be open and flexible for making this change. 3. Even if you don't do well in the exams then try to find out the reasons and know your role in it. If the examiner was in a foul mood and didn't give you marks that you deserved then don't blame yourself. Public exams have this element of grey area and it's best to factor it into your planning. Remember that it's the survival of the fittest and very few seats are available for which lakh of candidates apply. You need to be mentally, physically and emotionally fit to cross all stages and beat all competion. Get a grip of yourself and study well but don't forget to enjoy life with friends and have some fun times to relax yourself.

The dead are no more but memories will longer. It is no use wallowing in the past. You will tend to do so if you have not learned some lessons. In this case, you must treasure the good moments and move on. The living are really important i. E. You and your life. If you have weak ego boundaries, you will tend to stay stuck with this person for a long time. You must learn to detach and enjoy the life ahead with the other people around. You will and can make new friends but you will do so only if you socialize. If this person you lost knows how you are wasting your life, s/he will not be pleased at all. You must also work with a counselor to deal with your grief and that will help you tremendously to move on. Please reach out soon for your own sake. If there is some unfinished business that you needed to complete that can be done too in gestalt therapy.

I am 23 old, and I am studying CA. I have lot to study, the exams are coming. But I can not put my concentration in my studies. Always I am busy with my phones or laptop or other things. Look like not interested in studies. But I want to become a CA. I feel my memory power getting lower day by day, and physically and mentally I am not fit, I do not know what to do. How can I put time into studies effectively. Please help me with this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu have to use willpower to put the phone away. And try these study tips 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Dear Rohit, At your age night fall is common. There is no need to stop it. You mature hormonally at adolescent age itself. But economically and socially, even legally you are not fit for marriage. What happens to the semen produced in your body? Think. It has to get out. You are not married. So it goes out in the dream stage of sleep.Otherwise you have to masturbate and release it. Going to other women may be risky with diseases. So, accept night fall as a natural way of letting the unused fluid (semen) out. As age advances, it will reduce because of your other interests in life. Now also if you concentrate on your studies and learning many skills for your life, night fall will be reduced.

Iam 20 years old male, I had habituated to smokingSo please, advice me how to stop smoking.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Habitual smoking or chain smoking increases the Tar content in our lungs thus decreasing our lungs Air spaces called Alveolar sacs.Due to this decrease in air spaces,we cant exert much as our lungs cant carry more volumes of air due to decreased lung spaces.This leads to shortness of breath when we exert thus loosing our stamina.So to increase stamina,the first and foremost thing a chain smoker should do is ti quit smoking cigrattes and start doing morning cardio exercises or breathing exercises to increase lung spaces.It sounds very easy but my friend it is not that easy as it requires a lot of Determination and will power because you will have to face a lot of challenges while quitting this habit and you must have to be head strong.Once you quit your smoking habit,the things will automatically becomes easy for you. Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking.

Recently I lost my dad & elder brother before 2 years and my mom is not behaving in normal way how we are she not eat properly, no sleeping, having sense of black magic i only the one person who run the home now so i want my mom in normal way plz help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please take your mom to meet with a psychiatrist soon. There have been some incredible stories of people recovering well from timely intervention. Also let her go for counseling. It seems your family has suffered some untimely deaths and this will affect even normal people. Considering that, your mom?s reaction, if it is due to these deaths, is quite understandable. Now, do not look for a total return to normal behavior. Whatever improvement is possible is better than no treatment, in which case she can only degenerate further. There is no stigma but what is found in the head of people ? misperception, superstition, and complete ignorance. Even so, do not bother about public opinion: her health is very important. Having to live with a disturbed individual is very difficult and sometimes traumatizing. For your own relief and that of your mom?s please attend to her immediately through professional help.

How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

Is depression eating you up from within? Are you facing severe emotional meltdown? Emotional disturbances can ruin your life and this is why you have to look for the best preventive ways. You can have a consultation with any counsellor so that you can share your problems. Your counsellor will definitely help you to get some potential way out. 

Best ways for preventing emotional meltdown:

  1. Detecting the signs: The actual signs of emotional meltdown need to be detected and then only you can get rid of the same. Both your facial expressions and behavioural changes are to be observed carefully as these will help you to detect the signs. If you are remaining silent for most of the times, then there is something going on in your mind for sure. 
  2. Early intervention: You should rely on your intuition or sixth sense so that you can sense the troubles you are going to face. You should have a good observation power so that you can sense things easily. Remain quiet and calm so that you can take the right decisions. 
  3. Living well: You need to choose a completely healthy way of living, otherwise you will never get freedom from emotional troubles. Do not think much about past incidents, rather you should look forward so that you can go ahead. You should develop only positive mentality in order to discharge your duties in a perfect manner. Remain happy and keep everybody happy and then only you will be able to get the actual essence of life. Healthy eating and good habits are also needed so that your life can become more lively and refreshing. 
  4. Have proper communication: If you think that your friends or family members are pretty reliable, then you can openly communicate with them. This would help you to get mental relief and relaxation.  If you open up your emotions and share them with anybody, then you will feel relaxed and your mind will be calm at all times. 
  5. Have counselling: It is not always possible to share all your secrets with your loved ones and this is the reason you have to look for the most reliable option. You can go for thorough counselling, and this can help you to get rid of depressing thoughts and other mental troubles. In this case, you have to look for the best counsellor in your locality so that you can disclose all your hidden secrets.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Forgetfulness and Age

By the time we cross 40, most of us suffer from minimal cognitive impairment and have a memory loss of very recent events or objects. This is age related and should not be confused with dementia.

This can also happen in patients who are vegetarians and vitamin B12 deficient. People often have difficulty in naming objects and name of the people.

Just as a computer hangs up while doing multiple tasks, so does the human mind. When you handle multiple projects at the same time, you may experience thought blocks, which is natural and not a sign of a disease.

When we introduce ourselves to a new person, we often tell our name first. It is possible that by the time you finish your conversation, the person may forget your name. Therefore, one should either introduce themselves last after the conversation is over or introduce oneself at the start and also at the end of the conversation.

Some people introduce themselves before the conversation and hand over their visiting card at the end of a conversation. This is also taught in how to market yourself.

As medical doctors, we face these difficulties quite often. People send SMSs without their names or call without telling their names. For example, I once got a call "Malhotra Bol Raha Hoon Pehchana Kya" As a doctor, we may have had hundreds of Malhotras as our patients and it is not expected from us, especially after the age of 40 to recall a person just by his surname. Unless we are given complete information by the patient on phone, mistakes can be made, especially if it is a phone consultation. In any way, phone consultation needs to be avoided. Even Supreme Court in one of its judgments said that giving phone consultation may amount to professional misconduct on the part of the doctor.
