How to increase memory power and problem solving skills for maths and how to make brain sharp.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

I am 22 years old person studying in college. From my childhood I was not good in interacting with people. When someone come to me and asked something I couldn't reply in a good manner. So I didn't have that much friends. Anyway I understood I was not good in socially at later 16s. I started changing my self but there where any good results (some slight changes are there). I am always dreaming about past incidents as making my self good and find pleasure in it. I visualise the same in my mind repeatedly sometimes. I was good at delivering speech during my schooling and got many prizes. But at the same time very low behavioural skills. Now in my hostel everyone teasing me but I can't oppose them. If someone asked something in a tweezing way I get silent and failing to handle the situation and sometimes I hide from that persons. In my dreams I am OK but in real situations I am far behind. Please resolve my problems and suggest me some some ideas to overcome.

Dear Lybrate User. You have expressed the issues you are facing in a clear and lucid manner, kudos for that .You have mentioned you are good in public speaking and have won prizes for that, it shows you are bold and articulate. Rather than dwelling on the past live in the present moment and day to day. Make friends with those with whom you can share interests and hobbies. Ask your close friends and relatives what you can do to improve your inter- personal skills. If you feel you might require a language course / accent or soft skills training, go ahead and do a course for that. Take some time out and set up goals for yourself - long term and short term. Live your life according to that .Re look at your self and your situation objectively and make a plan accordingly. Enjoy life and all the opportunities that come your way and look at obstacles as areas where you can learn something new. Do write to me if you do want any further assistance. Wishing you all the best. With Regards,

What is chromophobia? How many of world population is suffering from this one? Is this genetically happen?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is chromophobia? How many of world population is suffering from this one? Is this genetically happen?
Fear of colors is called Chromophobia. Some sufferers may be afraid of only certain shades of colors- for example, red. Many are known to fear this color (specifically known as Erythrophobia in scientific parlance) as it is symbolic of blood, death or violence. In other cases, the phobic might fear all bright colors in general. For such individuals, day to day life can be difficult as the sight and presence of the specific colors can induce anxiety or panic attack. People with the fear of colors tend to suffer from many debilitating symptoms,

I have a anxiety problem and stress and memory and concentration problem for last 6 to 7 years. I got tension and shiver to speak when I got calls from company numbers, interview persons and stranger (officials) etc. Sometimes I tremble and shiver and forgot words and forgot what to speak with them. I got phone speaking problem around 15 years back when I call my brothers office, his manager picked the call due to network call disconnected and I need to call several time then that manager scolded me. That time onwards when speaking to strangers or any officials my voice shivers and heart beat raises. I feel so much anxious and feel tension before attending interview face to face or interview call and heart beat raises. Finally cancels my interview or disconnect/switch off my phone with out attending interview. Before interview or travelling feels very anxiety and goto urinate atleat 1 or 2 times and can not eat food. Even when I go to doctor before meeting him feels a lot of tension and forgets my problem which I need to tell even if I rehearse internally several times. I feel lot of fear and gets negative thoughts like if I drive I skids my bike and hurts or gets accident or what if bike brakes down when driving alone etc. Almost every aspect I get negative thoughts. I thinks alot unnecessarily and thinks about why I am think etc without my control. I cannot concentrate and I forgot very easily and unable to memorize my subject answers.

Since then trying to get a job in software but due to above problems I did not get a job because of not attending interviews or forgetting words/answers in interview. How to deal this problem.

Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc.

I want to quit smoking. But how. And I wanna to growth up in my body. But how?

M.D. homoeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath,
I want to quit smoking. But how. And I wanna to growth up in my body. But how?
Leaving any addiction very much depends upon the will power of the person. You need to promise yourself that you will quit. Also gradually decrease the no of cigrattes you are smoking, sudden leaving would result in withdrawal symptoms and you will get more craving for the pipe. Also take reckwedge no. 77, german homoeopathic medicine. Positive thinking and strong control along will medicine should be able to help you to quit smoking. To build the muscle mass, take more of protein rich diet and join a gym for muscle workout. It would definately add bulk to your body.

Hi, This is regarding someone I know, Male 29 years old and currently pursuing his masters. I wanted to ask whether he needs any kind of treatment for mood disorder, depression, etc. There are mood swings and sometimes he is very confident to discuss about the opportunities he has got in the business plans he is making but this lasts for a short span of time and later he would be regretting about the life decisions he has made till now and not being able to do anything of his life till now and wasting the parent’s money on some worthless college where he is not being able perform. He is unable to take any decision on his own and would a consultation a thousand times to take a step forward. He has not been able to concentrate on his assignments and now fear failing in assignments and examinations, for which his excuse is that he is just thinking about it and when it comes to transformation of his thoughts, I think he is not been able to perform to his maximum threshold. He always has a fear that he is not doing worthy enough and has not done anything in the past also. He would keep to himself in the college and not talk much to anyone during normal course but when excited he would share ideas to many people and talk to people he hasn’t during years of time, but will also be very sensitive to get aggravated on small matters also and would then spoil the relations sometimes. I hope this leads anywhere to you, if you need any-more information regarding this, let me know. Thanks in advance.

The person you are referring to is probably having a bipolar spectrum disorder, with predominantly depressive phases more than manic. If these phases are affecting his daily functioning and life, he should be definitely given some treatment.

Express your emotions is not a disease. Why you want to control your emotions. Don't control them just change the way of express. When you feel happy help needy persons. Not only by money by physical help also. This make you feel happy more but keep calm your mind. When you feel angry do activities like making drawing and colouring what make you angry. When you want to cry just cry. It clear your inner soul. Write down your emotions any why they rise daily. Just clear every thing be positive always. Accept what happen always.

I am getting immediately anger.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Dear, for anger do the following:- 1. Take some deep breaths from the abdomen, getting as much fresh air as possible into your lungs. 2. A brisk walk around to cool down so you can approach the situation with a cooler head. 3. Take advantage of the relaxing power of your sense of sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste. 4. Listen to your favourite music/sound track 5. Stretch or massage areas of tension.

I have reduce my smoking I have to quit it tell me certain measures to quit smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Dear Lybrate User, I am very concerned to see you in this condition. Have you ever taken any professional help for this condition? If not, please consult a Counsellor at the earliest. The Counsellor will help you to understand what is happening to you and what are the causes. I guess that you have had a difficult childhood. Probably your emotions and feelings were not validated by your loved ones. All those suppressed emotions are making you hyper sensitive now. Since you have attempted suicide twice, then it is clear that you are desperate to leave this world which seems an unhappy place for you. I think, suicide is not a solution, it might create more problems for you. It is advisable to consult a Counsellor at the earliest. The Counsellor will listen to you and will accept you unconditionally. The Counsellor will also help you to understand what is happening to you and what is the cause behind your negative thinking. By modifying your thoughts and behaviour you may bring some pleasant change in your life. The Counselling process will help you to explore other options. All the best and take care.

At the age of 28, I had got the opportunity to hv sec but could not as the moment I was ready my erection went off. At age age of 36 again I got the opportunity twice but then the same happened. Now I am into a stable relationship. I want sex now. Its not that I do not get erection or its a case of erectile dysfunction. Also on getting second opportunity to hv sex I consumed a pill vigora for stable erection but that did not work. Suggest what could be d possible cause. What precaution should I take to make it happen. Thanx n regards,

The center of sex is in the mind and not in the organs. The fear of outcome in any action hampers it. So the performance pressure, you are putting on yourself is causing the current problem just go with a mind-set of having good time and not as if you are going for a competitive exam, where you should outscore others! also don't fear of losing her. Just relax.
