Sir I want to know that how to improve my memory power bcs I forget some thing very early.

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
Hello Lybrate User, Memory problems are a quite common complaint, it is a fact that memory power diminishes with age, but when it incarcerates children and youngsters, it becomes something to seriously watch over. Mother Nature has provided us with a number of power-packed natural foods.  Various other factors can affect your memory like sleep deprivation, nutritional deficiencies (particularly B vitamins), drinking alcohol and smoking habits and use of certain medications. Here are tips to increase memory - * Eat a well-balanced and nutritious diet including vitamins A, B12, C, beta-carotene, folic acid, zinc, iron, calcium and magnesium. * Avoid high-fat diets and replace saturated fats in your diet with healthy fats. * Include herbs and spices like holy basil, turmeric and black pepper in your regular diet as they help boost memory. You can also drink green tea as it is full of antioxidants. * Give your brain a workout by practicing brain exercises, such as solving a challenging Sudoku puzzle or crossword. * Engage in regular physical exercise as it increases oxygen to the brain and stimulates nerve cells to multiply. * Get proper sleep. Sleep deprivation compromises your brain’s ability to operate at full capacity. * Keep stress in check. Along with that follow this, Almonds - These are an excellent remedy to help improve memory and brainpower. They are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that boost memory. Due to their rich antioxidant content, almonds are good for your eyes, too. - Soak 5 to 10 almonds in water overnight. - The next morning, peel the skin and grind the almonds. - Boil this paste with one glass of milk. - Add some sugar or honey for taste. - Drink it daily for 30 or 40 days. Take care.

My uncle is drinking wine everyday, it became hobby for them, please tell the simple treatment for my uncle?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Hello there are two types of urges mentioned in ayurveda 1) dharniya vega (urges, should b controlled, but you aren't) like chinta-stress, bhaya-fear, shoka-, krodha-short temper, maan- ego, lobha-greedy etc mental condition you should control yourself 2) adharniya vega (urges that should not be controlled, but you are controling) like sleep, urine, stool, hunger, thirst, yawn, sneeze, vomit etc. So it's too bad live with anxiety. Life is a gift. A beautiful phrase: life has either problem or not. If no problem, then why worry? if you have problem, two possibility. Either you can handle or not. If you can handle, why worry? if you can not do anything for problem, then again why worry?) my advises to you are * take life lightly * main problem is how you are reacting matters & incidence of your life & day to day * you can see half filled glass of water by two way: half is still empty (nagative attitude) or half full (positive) * take balance diet * give time for yoga

U are doing very wrong by skipping your chapatti intake. You will never reduce weight like this. You need to take a proper balanced diet for weight loss. Every meal is very important. Pls do not pick up weights in the gym. Just go for cardio and stretching. You do not hve to take only fruits and vegetables for reducing weight. 1) start your day with a fruit 2) take frequent small meals 3) do not skip any meals 4) take your dinner by 7: 30 p. M 5) avoid carbohydrates 2 times a week for dinner. Just go for proteins 2 times a week for dinner.

I get aggressive suddenly. What should I do. please suggest me what to do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
For anger do the following:- 1. You may leave from that place, go into fresh air and take some deep breaths from the abdomen, getting as much fresh air as possible into your lungs. 2. Inner restlessness may be relieved by 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. See natural scene, spend some time with pet. 4. Listen to your favourite music/sound track 5. Stretch or massage areas of tension. 6. Write down the triggering factors and try to avoid those situations.

If you get irritated on their comments, they win, you loose. If you ignore their comments, I mean, if you don't react/respond to their comment then you win, they loose and ultimately the frequency of that behaviour will decrease. It is not the problems/stressors in our life, it is how we react to them that counts.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Pursuit of Happiness

For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you are not going to be very happy.

If someoneone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness dpends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.
