Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

There are some brain enhancing techniques which is called cognitive training. But some vitamins are supposed to increase blood circulation to brain which is a faster method. For eg. Vitamin b3. Don't go for any chemical drugs or medicines.

Asperger's Syndrome - Causes And Diagnosis

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Asperger's Syndrome - Causes And Diagnosis

Asperger's syndrome has been found to affect people at a tender age. The augmented impacts of this syndrome are felt as you grow up. It is a neurological disorder falling under the scope of Autistic Spectrum Disorders. However, it is a milder form of autism and has similarly unidentifiable causes. A person afflicted with Asperger's syndrome will not exhibit stark signs of the disorder. These persons are usually smart and brilliant but face issues in communicating or interacting socially.  

Factors that may result in this disorder

  • Genetic factors could also afflict you with such a syndrome. Thus, it is important to carry your family history while consulting a doctor.
  • Certain changes in a person's brain could create trouble. 
  • Your body could be susceptible to external toxins: many times bacteria and viruses from a polluted environment can lead you to such a serious neurological condition.

Ways to diagnose Asperger's syndrome

  1. A doctor would concentrate on your child's speech: Language development can hint at many underlying health issues. Your child might fail to process speech around him or her which impairs its own speech.
  2. Exchanges in a social setup could be indicative of something: Children or adults could find social gatherings challenging. They feel awkward to interact with friends, relatives and colleagues. It takes a lot of effort on their part to exchange basic pleasantries. A doctor will be able to deduce from such symptoms.
  3. Facial expressions while conversing could help diagnosis: A person's facial expressions tell a lot about how they formulate or feel about things. Their words, at the same time, could be contrary. Counselors lay stress on frequent sittings to closely note the gestures made by a patient. 
  4. Comprehension and coordination capabilities: Your child or loved one might find it difficult to handle motor regulated appliances. Comprehending instructions could also be a test. People suffering from Asperger's syndrome face problems in understanding simple things. 
  5. Responding to change will also be taken into consideration: Patients trying to cope with this syndrome are usually not open to change. They take a very long time to adapt to a given way of life; a sudden change will thwart their idea of normalcy.

Worked in Dubai for 9 years and now back to india but working in low salary and on top of that handling lots of humiliation and work burden. Cant adjust in this situation and in house also too much money pressure to handle and give answer to all about salary matter. Kindly help to maintain my balance in mind and also too much confuse to what to do and what not do in solving all this issue. Cant sleep and indulge in too much thinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You have probably lived a fairly good life and given your family some luxuries while you worked in Dubai for 9 years! They would have gotten used to that and are feeling the pinch now because money is not flowing as much. At work the same thing is probably happening. You might have had some dignity and respect in your job in Dubai but that will never be the same here. You will have to make everyone understand your financial crunch and get their cooperation. At work you will have to do likewise: accept the situation and learn to enjoy the same. If this is not possible, you may have to return to the Gulf. One other option for you to consider is to enter into the many networking businesses, if you have the investment capital. Now you have to choose very carefully. I know of a few that can become your primary source of income or even supplementary source, by working in your spare time. If interested, get in touch with me. Most people who return prematurely from a foreign jaunt do so because of some idea of starting a business. If you have not done that, then this is your best alternative.

I am psychologically down although I do not have nagging reasons to worry or be unhappy. Anxiety has become a part of my life for unknown reasons. I don't get sleep and have been using tranquilizers for the past one year. Even then, my sleep is less than 4 to 5 hours a day. Twice I am taking Zolsoma 0.5 mg at 11 PM and again around 3/3.30 AM. The dependance has become so worse, many a time, I am using the same during the day also to get a serene feeling. Can Ayurveda help?

You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

I am 30 years old. My son is 8 years old. He behaves very aggressively even with the elders of house. I am worried because of his disrespectful nature, disobedience and foul language. Even when he is happy he finds a reason to be sad. Also does not want to study, always starts crying. His father completes his all demands but he has no value of it. I am afraid to take him along to somebody's place because he might behave rudely. please help me understand the cause for his behaviour. His grandparents also live with us. When he is in aggression he is not aware of what he is speaking.

He definitely needs some professional help from a child psychologist. This extent of loss of control and poor behavior needs some attention. You may also know some reasons for this behavior because of any problems you encountered when you were pregnant for him or during his developmental years. You will need to check the family history to see if here are any genetic concerns to take into account too.

Hello sir, My problem is I am feeling sleepy every time I am not concentrate on my study's Give me solution what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please go for a complete medical examination to find out he cause of your sleepiness. If you are sleeping well at night, there may be other causes for this extent of sleepiness. In the meantime, you may follow these recommendations to improve concentration: 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. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: 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. 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.

Sorry for your loss of your parents bereavement is a state of feeling aroused by loss of loved one's. It's quite normal to feel sad and low and have recurrent thoughts of the deceased person, but if these thoughts continue for long period and one is unable to concentrate in work or social life, it is advisable to consult a psychiatrist for therapy. Share your feelings with someone close you might feel relieved. It's advisable to go for counseling sessions from a qualified psychologist.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.
