If you are able to attach a positive meaning to your hard work then there's a way to be motivated and study again. Imagine how successful and happy you will be after clearing and getting a good job. You will be able to achieve some of your goals and dreams and some, friends, young cousin or sibling might be inspired by your hard work. Humans always want to live happily and achieve something in life and have influence on others so that they feel important and acceptable in society. If your friendship and phone can find you long lasting happiness and satisfaction then do that by all means. You can only decide what is the best for you. Take care.

You could be under some stress that you are not aware of. Meet with a counselor and sort that out for better memory. In the meantime do some of the following meticulously: 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. 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.

Stress - Good and Bad

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
Stress is sometimes good for you. When you stretch yourself beyond your capacity, your body accepts challenge and increase the capacity to cope up with challenge. To a certain extent, it is good for body. But when the stress crosses the limits, it starts hurting you. That's the bad stress for you. Moderate stress for too long a time also is bad for you. Most of the hormonal diseases like diabetes, thyroid etc. Occur because of long standing underlying moderate stress.

Stress can be physical or mental. Physical stress is due to long and continuous physical activities like walking, jogging, travelling, cycling. Mental stress is mainly because of financial tension or relationship distress. Both types of stress cause similar damages to body. Stress is the main underlying cause behind diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid, diabetes, kidney disease, peptic ulcer, bleeding disorders, cancer, recurrent infections etc.

Finding out the reason of stress and removal of cause of stress should be the main line of treatment of such diseases.

Dear sir, anxiety and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called anxiety disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding anxiety helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which anxiety disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.

Hoarseness of voice could be due to chronic laryngitis or polyp in vocal cord. Get your throat examined by ent specialist and follow the advice and treatment. Do warm saline gargling 2-3 times daily. Give voice rest. Take throat lozenges. Avoid smoking, if you smoke.

I do not know of ayurvedic medicines that will help but do consider the following and if they apply and if you apply them you will notice a lot of changes. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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.

Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Can bipolar depression be cured, if not how is the balance between a high and low phase maintained?
Respected lybrate-user Ma'am. Bipolar disorder can not be cured. We use mood stabilizer to to prevent high and low phase and maintain a stable phase. Mood stabilizer can be stopped after 3 to 5 years if there is no episode during these years. All thing need to be under strict psychiatric supervision. All d best!

It means that he is possessively in love with you at the same time he wants you to know more about your past life, which is not a healthy one. I suggest you to have an open communication with him about your past life after receiving an agreement or promise from him that he would never talk or think about it in future and accept you as you are. Otherwise, it will act as a thorn between your relationship causing pain to both of you.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Watching porn is never unhealthy in direct terms. But indirectly it could harm your intellects. This also shows that you do not have any serious things to do. 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.

Your doctor obviously has diagnosed anxiety disorder, but has not referred you to the right specialist, i. E. A psychiatrist, rather decided to treat on his own with beta blockers, which act only one the symptoms of anxiety.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Yoga alone can never cure depression. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hello- kulathi is a very good stone dissolver, if you are not facing any stone than it might be possible that your stone is flushed out or it might become so small to cause obstruction hence pain. Don't stop kulthi, stop your alpha blocker and continue neeri syrup 2 tsp twice daily from now on to remove stone completely and to prevent its recurrence.

OCD and Depression can co-exist, from what you say OCD symptoms are under control and depressive symptoms aren't. But you have not mentioned the medications, dose and how long you have been taking. If for 6 months your taking from a psychiatrist and you do not feel significant improvement, it's wise to get a second opinion. Also give the 2nd opinion same amount of time to show results. All the best.
