Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Concentration purely depends on interest, dedication and devotion. First you have to change your attitude so as to cultivate the above three. Nuts and fruits are good for memory. Proper sleep and rest are essential for concentration. Take care.

My weight is 51 kg ,height 173 cm and age 29. Whenever I try to increase my weight , I become anxious unnecessarily whether I will get affected by cardiac arrest and depart this world. I want to gain weight to 75 kg corresponding to my height in 2 months in a healthy way and stay strong without anxiety. What shall I do ? Advise me?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
You definitely need to consult a very good dietician. Also gaining almost 25 kg in 2 months is not a good goal. The proper way to gain or reduce weight is taking an approach that does it gradually. You also need to remember that when you gain weight gradually then you are not gaining only fat but also gaining muscle mass. Then yiu don't need to worry about cardiac and other health related issues. Hope this helps best wishes.

Depression

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
Depression

<a  data-cke-saved-href='https://www.lybrate.com/topic/depression' href='https://www.lybrate.com/topic/depression' target='_blank'>Depression</a> - Is it Curable?

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. 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.

How it can be treated?

  1. Role of anti-depressants: Depression has become rather common in the present day scenario. The treatment varies from prescription drugs to therapy. People who have depression are usually given mood enhancers and anti-depressants. Antidepressants are medicines used to help people who have depression. With the help of these depression medications, most people can achieve significant recovery from depression. Most antidepressants are believed to work by slowing the removal of certain chemicals from the brain. 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. Antidepressants help people with depression by making these natural chemicals more available to the brain. By restoring the brain’s chemical balance, antidepressants help relieve the symptoms of depression. Specifically, antidepressant drugs help reduce the extreme sadness, hopelessness, and lack of interest in life that are typical in people with 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 therapeutic techniques to solve the problem at the root level.
  2. Therapy: Different therapeutic techniques are used to treat depression depending majorly on the individual, the cause of depression and general history and state of mind. Research suggests that client centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are a good start with an average case of depression. The therapists usually incorporate several other methods based on the client’s need to get maximum effect. Adlerian techniques, where individuals are made to comprehend the thoughts and emotions which influence their lifestyles and adopt a more productive and positive way of life, are rather helpful with most clients who suffer from 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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am loosing my memory and attention towards work. I have been so absent of mind that I even forget the name of my coligues. Please help what should I do. Please suggest.

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. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, eat less fat, and use olive oil in your food, 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. 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. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too. Your hypertension is an indication that you are not dealing with your emotions well.

Dear, as you are already aware smoking is dangerous. Apart from the nicotine related addiction and health hazards, you inhale more than 4000 carcinogenic chemicals when you smoke. There is also a high risk of developing these problems to other people near you through passive smoking. Awareness is the basic for quitting smoking. Awareness provides will power. Know more about tobacco smoking health effects. For craving or withdrawal symptoms you can use nicotine chewing gums or nicotine patches. There are other way by gradual reducing and keeping some promises. Promise yourself, that you will not smoke in office, at home, in front of family members and dear friends etc. Never buy cigerettes in packets. Whenever you feel like smoking, go to the shop and buy one. Keep these promises strictly and you will see the quantity reduces drastically. Then you can stop it gradually. Take care.

I have a lot of dandruff in my hair which is very sticky and my whole scalp is full of whitish dandruff which I can not remove, not even in summer. I consulted a doctor previously he told me the name of the disease is oasis or soyasis (i forgot the name). Can you please tell me which medicine or lotion will help me to cure this kind of dandruff?

Hi effective method to treat dandruff would be to combine 2 tablespoons of fresh apple juice with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Dab this on the hair and keep it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Do this for once or twice a week to cure dandruff. Apply ketoconazole lotion on your scalp once in a week.

I was a very fun loving and happy go lucky boy but now I lack such confidence , energy and is a bit more agressive in nature. Sometimes I fill very low and emotional.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are suffering from depression, and I assume you have just entered your 20s age wise. Towards the later end of your adolescence most pathologies (if you have a predisposition for them) manifest and develop into serious conditions, if ignored. The aggression indicates that your depression could be anger related, which has other complications. Since you have had it for 2-3 years, I think you may be neglecting it too much. Kindly visit a psychiatrist but follow the prescription until advised. Also seek the help of a counselor to develop coping skills that will stand you in good stead for life.

I have always been a shy kid (somewhat unsteady emotionally: they have more control over me than I have over them). I often preferred keep things inside, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. Then a few years back, I failed my higher secondary exams, due to which I went into severe depression. I became even more isolated than before. And eventually, old wounds started to crop up, I ended up feeling even more hopeless (partly because my self esteem was close to zero, and partly because of my over-thinking nature. On top of everything, I faced more complications (a few failed friendships, and some relationships). There were not many with whom I could share my secrets with. And when I did, it made no difference, I felt nothing at all. Nowadays I have started to do a bit of part time work, which has helped me tremendously, mainly in regards with having a higher level of self esteem, being emotionally healthier and not feeling too nervous while surrounded by people who are practically strangers. But after suffering for quite some time, I have some distinct scars with me, which I am listing now: A) My memory power has dwindled down a lot. I was an above average student, now I am the perfect example of" outta sight, outta mind" B) I often misread words, I often mistake one word to be another, whenever I'm in a hurry. C) I often fail to notice that I have missed a word when writing something, if I have said it correctly to myself in my head. D) I feel bipolar-ish at times, I go from emotion to emotion quite quickly, without intending to do so, angry to sad to numb to unnaturally joyful. And also, there are times when I want to be sad (addicted. Etc. So what should I do?

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Your problem is gad. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

It is very hard to tell if the child will have down's syndrome or not. It is only time that will tell and for that matter of fact, it is only chance and please think positively about the situation. The chances are very less and even if it turns out to be so, downs kids are trainable. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Depression is comorbid with epilepsy.It can proceed epilepsy.It can post an epilepsy attack.Social factors also play a role in its occurrence.

Here it is essential for family members to be empathetic and supportive towards the patient.

I trust but no one is understanding me. This world is not for me I believe. I have no cause for anyone. I am getting insulted from everyone.

I can imagine how difficult life has been for you. I hope you are under medical care. Along with medicines, it will be very helpful for you to be under psychotherapy. The therapist will help you to understand why you are finding it difficult to trust other people and what is your perception about self and others. With a few modifications in behaviour and thinking patterns you would be able to cope up better.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear cause grief and grief related depression stays for some days or weeks. After some weeks, the depression vanishes. If you still have the symptoms ever after many days, I suggest online counselling and depression therapy. Take care.

I have been in a few relationships in the past but I wasn't really in love with anyone. But this relationship changed everything. It showed me all the sides of me that I hadn't seen before. I was a lot more attached, emotional, caring, concerned and most of all patient. I just feel that I've finally found someone I can land with. But since I have been in relationships before and I got over them pretty easily, my partner doesn't trust me and when he broke off I am completely devastated, in a way I have never been before. He says that my basic nature was being carefree and not attached to anyone. And what I am feeling is not real. But I don't think that. I think what I am feeling right now is actually real because breaking up and making up has been going on since a few months in this relationship. And I'm still unable to accept it. In the past, when the break ups occurred I could easily cope up with them in a day or two. So what I am asking here is can a person really change in such a way? And Can I be trusted for loyalty and everything even I've had relationships. I'm completely and entirely loyal to this particular person. I was pretty social nd materialistic before and and now I'm so much more comfortable being what I am now. I don't seek validation from others anymore and feel a lot more matured. Can people change really change the way I have? And also, how can I build up my credibility as a loyal person?

YOu have to be just what you are and credibility will be gained by your sincere dealings. If this guy cannot accept you as you are, relax and you will get a person who suits you well. Just be calm and patient and do meditaion.

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
1.Take balanced diet with proper combination of carbohydrate, protein and fat. Avoid diet high in saturated fats like red meat, whole milk, butter, cheese, cream, ice cream etc which hampers memory and concentration. Take complex carbohydrates like whole wheat bread, brown rice, oat meal, high fiber cereals, lentils, whole beans etc. Avoid processed foods like pasta, potato etc 2. Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits and drink green tea since they contain anti oxidants which enhance memory 3.Go for regular physical exercise like brisk walking, jogging, cycling etc for 30-45 minutes daily 4.Take some mental exercise like doing cross word puzzle, problem solving exercise, playing chess etc 5.Develop some new hobby and skill like learning music, dancing, playing new game etc 6.Take adequate rest. 7-8 hours of sound sleep in the night is required to remain healthy 7. Avoid alcoholic beverages, caffeinated drink, smoking and consumption of tobacco etc. 8. Develop healthy relationship with friends, relatives, family members for good emotional health 9. Avoid stress, anxiety, depression, agitation, severe physical and mental exertion 10. Focus on one task at a time rather than focusing on multiple task 11.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Balanced diet is the key. Whole grains, cereals, pulses, vegetables, egg white, fish, fruits, nuts etc do not cause obesity. Physical exercise and balanced life is another important factor. Take care.
