I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

General Physician, Nashik
Consuming foods such as ginger, green tea, fatty fish, soy products, blueberries, and other dark berries may protect these important cells from damage. Evidence suggests that the DHA found in omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia by reducing beta-amyloid plaques. Food sources include cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel, and sardines. You can also supplement with fish oil.

Dear lybrate-user, some amount of fear and anxiety are good for studies but if it starts to interfere with your performance, then its bad. You should have a specific task list for each day- wherein you write somewhere the topics that you want to finish in a particular day. Start by reading it - at times aloud, make points, write down keywords and draw diagrams to understand the concept. After finishing the topic, revise with points, as if explaining the topic to someone. You'll feel more confident and remember things for long. Exercise and practise some relaxation techniques to keep fear at bay.

I am sorry for your loss. Feeling sad during this time is normal. There is nothing you can do other than giving yourself some time. After sometime you should be able to feel better and move ahead. But if the symptoms continue over few months then you should get yourself evaluated.

6 Common Mental Problems Faced By Women!

The period around the age of 45 to 50 is very delicate for most women as many changes occur within the body. The changes occur due to menopause or a cessation of the menstrual cycle for a period of at least 12 months or so. Along with a host of physical changes, post-menopausal women tend to suffer from mental problems as well. Some of the factors could be physical changes such as a decline or stop in hormone productions while some of them are psychological effects as well. Some of the common mental problems faced by women are mentioned below:

  1. DepressionThis is by far the most common mental disorder and affects women while they are going through the process of menopause. After a few years, post-menopausal women tend to recover from this or the symptoms at least taper off. It is estimated that almost 20% of women undergoing menopause suffer from this problem, although the risk of depression is much higher if you have prior history of it.

  2. Sleep Disorders: This can be described as not only a mental disorder that affects women but also a symptom of menopause. Sleep disorders can range anywhere between disturbed sleep, insomnia or sleep apnea (breathing difficulty while sleeping), especially in older women. Women undergoing menopause may suffer from this due to hormonal changes which result in hot flashes. These can wake you up in the middle of the night almost daily.

  3. Schizophrenia: This is a serious mental disorder and is mostly noticed in women who have a prior history of the disorder. This condition is characterized by delusions and a detachment from reality which often pushes the person to act on their inappropriate imaginations. Schizophrenia usually manifests itself in young adulthood and peaks again at the age of around 45 to 50. If you had episodes of schizophrenia in your early adulthood, then it may resurface during menopause, although most women do see a subsiding of symptoms some time after menopause has occurred.

  4. Panic Disorder: Women tend to experience this problem, during or even after menopause, as a new disorder that suddenly develops. This can be quite disruptive in your life. Also, if you have a history of this disorder, menopause may trigger it to show up again.

  5. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: This disorder is another mental health issue that can cause you to be overly obsessive, more so among menopausal women. If you already have had OCD in the past, menopause can trigger a relapse or a bad episode.

  6. Bipolar Disorder: In this case as well, menopausal women have a higher tendency for a relapse or the start of a bad episode if they already had even mild signs of it. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I feel so lonely and depressed bcoz I do not have any close friends to share with them. What should I do? Pls suggest me.

Psychologist, Pune
I feel so lonely and depressed bcoz I do not have any close friends to share with them. What should I do? Pls suggest...
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice to see that you have openly expressed your situation. Each individual has his or her own likes / dislikes hobbies, interests. Invest some time in your self and develop your own long term and short term goals. Try to live your life according to the goals you have set for your self. During the course of your life you will come across some people with whom you will have common interests or with whom you can share your feelings. Develop friendship and relationships with such people. Always remember that the other person is also looking for some one to talk to or share his/ her feelings. Being a good listener will give you an opportunity to meet up with such people. Wishing you all the best!

My husband always in aggressive mood always possessive and don't lyk my praises and always says to me that I have a depression problem. Please tell me what can I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your husband was a doctor, I would have said your need some treatment. But if he is trying to scare you and blame your behavior by throwing diagnoses around, it must not be allowed to work. If you are indeed doubtful, then you can meet with a counselor to know, if his accusations are true. But if he harasses you like this then it is possible that you could get depressed because of it. Now if you let him do that, then that will be an unfortunate neglect on your part. You must stand up for yourself and be counted. You should both go for marital counseling and sort out your differences and find out what is his insecurity. Are you making him insecure or is he suffering from this problem apart from you? if it is the former then you need to work on that. If it is the latter, then he has much to work on. If he is not willing to come for therapy, you go at least and learn how to cope and deal with this situation. Sometimes when he sees you working on your issues he may feel encouraged to come and then you will have the best situation for marital counseling. But do not be passive and take all this nonsense. This can lead to a grossly mismanaged relationship in the long run because you failed to take prompt action.

Few Warning Signs of Parkinson's Disease You Should Know!

Neurosurgeon, Chennai
Few Warning Signs of Parkinson's Disease You Should Know!

Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative condition that affects your brain cells which produce dopamine and thus hampering all kinds of motor functioning and other emotional responses. After the disease is diagnosed, medication and therapy can help to provide relief from the symptoms to a large extent but a permanent cure is not possible.


The disorder does not have a definite set of causes. A small percentage of the cases have been related to hereditary factors and others have a range of environmental causes associated with them.

1. Genetic factors:

Specific gene mutations and gene variations have been proved to cause Parkinson's, such as SNCA, PARK2, PARK7, PINK1 and LRRK2. These make or recycle proteins which are linked to the disease.

Research shows that men are at a 1.75 times greater risk of developing the condition than women are. Also, age plays a role with most cases occurring after the age of 60.

2. Environmental factors:

Regular exposure to inorganic insecticides, pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals or other toxins may cause the disorder. In rare cases, Parkinson's disease occurs in the aftermath of a severe head injury or immune disorders.


The symptoms can be classified into two broad categories-

1. Motor symptoms:

  • The hand tremors when in resting position
  • The grip loosens
  • Walking slows down
  • Facial muscles freeze partially
  • Speech is slurred
  • Balance is disturbed
  • Swallowing is painful
  • Urination is abnormally frequent
  • Dementia-like symptoms are seen
  • There is involuntary twitching of the fingers and toes
  • Repetition of the same movement in quick succession is nearly impossible

2. Non-motor symptoms:

  • Dental problems
  • Vision impairment
  • Skin disorders
  • Panic attacks
  • Excessive secretion of saliva
  • Extreme weight loss or gain
  • Sexual problems
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Lowering of the pitch of the voice
  • Fatigue

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

You are having pain on position you may be having muscular spasm may be due to overwork and exhaustion and less water intake required for the body. Go for morning walk followed by free hand exercises regular early.
