My brain some time remain hang. I can't thik anything even my education hamper due this reason. What can I do?
Hello, The best way of increasing the concentration as well as releasing the mental stress/ tension is through exercises (sp. yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. Stress can make mental health problems worse. So, the another way by which you can help your body deal with stress by avoiding certain foods and eating a balanced diet. Things to avoid: Avoid or limit caffeine and "power drinks." Coffee, tea, some soda pop, and chocolate have caffeine. Caffeine causes you to feel "wound up," which can make stressful situations seem more intense. If you drink a lot of caffeine, reduce how much you drink gradually. If you stop drinking caffeine suddenly, you may have headaches and find it hard to focus. Power drinks, such as Red Bull, also have ingredients that keep you on edge. Don't skip meals or eat on the run. Skipping meals can make stress-related symptoms such as headaches or stomach tension worse. Use mealtimes to relax, enjoy the flavor of your food, and reflect on your day. Don't eat to relieve stress. This can lead to overeating and guilt. If you tend to do this, replace eating with other actions that relieve stress, such as taking a walk, playing with a pet, or taking a bath. Don't turn to alcohol if you feel stressed. Alcohol can make you feel worse and may change how well your medicines work. Try not to drink or drink only on special occasions. At these times limit yourself to 2 drinks if you're a man and 1 drink if you're a woman. Eat a balanced diet A balanced diet includes: Breads, cereals, pasta, and rice. Choose whole-grain breads, cold and cooked cereals and grains, pasta (without creamy sauces), hard rolls, or low-fat or fat-free crackers. Watch out for grain-based foods that have added fats and sugars, such as pastries, granola, snack crackers, and chips. These may cause weight gain or raise your cholesterol levels. Fruits and vegetables. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. They have little if any fat and lots of nutrients. Eat at least 2 cups of fruit and 2½ cups of vegetables every day. Meat and meat alternatives. Meat is a good source of protein. Choose fish and lean poultry instead of red meat and fried meats. Beans, tofu, and nuts are also good protein sources. Milk and milk products. Choose low-fat or fat-free products. If you have problems digesting milk, try eating cheese or yogurt instead, since these foods are low in lactose. Fats and oils. Limit fats and oils, including those you use in cooking. Choose oils that are liquid at room temperature (unsaturated fats), such as canola oil and olive oil. Avoid trans fats, which are found in margarines, crackers, cookies, and snack foods. Save sweets and high-fat snacks for special occasions. Nuts and seeds. Eating walnuts, almonds will no doubt increase your memory power! Also, includes seeds like sesame seeds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, etc. which are good sources of protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E. Water. Drink water when you are thirsty. For most people that means about 8 to 10 glasses of liquid a day. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Bacopa Monierri Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back.

My mother is a 58 year aged house wife. She has an extreme sort of depression that we understand. Initially from 3-4 years she used to ate sleeping pills in high numbers (10 to 16) but survived each time. We sometimes thought that she wanted to express her feeling to get attention but this time it was very high level but some how we were able to save her although she was kept on ventilator also in hospital for 7 days of the total 21 days. What we understand is that she wants to be taken care of on highest priority in any case or time otherwise she has a negative mindset and when she is given extra importance in daily routine then she use to dominate other people in the home. I am totally stuck in between. What to do because in any of the movement there happens a problem. Please advice.

Hi, it would be good if you could take your mother to a psychologist/ counsellor for weekly sessions to address her concerns. Psychologists are trained to handle depression and related concerns through one to one therapy wherein they not only give the patient empathy, positive regard but also become agents for positive change. I am not able to understand from your question whether she is on any anti depressant treatment as well. If not you need to see a psychiatrist since her symptoms seem acute and she needs medication as well. Meanwhile please ensure that she is not left unattended and does not have access to sleeping pills or sharp instruments etc easily.

5 Super Brain Drinks that Boost Your Memory

5 Super Brain Drinks that Boost Your Memory

When it comes to the brain, simple yet easy to make juices can make a lot of difference. These juices not only improve your memory, but are of great help to the cognitive functions as well. While green tea is a known component of increased brain function, there are other drinks too, which can charge your brain over the long term if consumed daily:

  1. Beet juice: Apart from being a nutritional powerhouse, beet juice is a great source of nitric acid. The latter helps with blood flow in the body. A smooth blood flow, on the other hand, helps the brain in functioning properly. A study has found that people who consume beet juice have an increased circulation in the white matter resulting from an increased brain activity. This juice is sweet in taste and can be consumed every alternate day.
  2. Berry Smoothies: Acai is a fruit which has a South African origin and hits the top of the list when it comes to brain assisting food. It increases the flow of the blood and dilates the blood vessels. However, this is extremely expensive. Berries also have a similar effect on the brain, but they are less powerful in nature. What can be done is to mix a little ingredient of Acai in frozen berries juice and drink the same every day. Frozen berries retain the freshness and the nutritional benefits. This drink will improvise your brain and increase blood flow in the body.
  3. Pomegranate juice: Pomegranate is a great antioxidant and it very aptly limits the free radicals from damaging the brain cells. Antioxidants are also credited with increased blood flow and protection of the heart. A healthy cardiovascular system is synonymous to an increased brain function. What is surprising is the fact that Pomegranate has more antioxidant content compared to red wine and green tea. Pomegranate juice can be consumed daily during the morning or afternoon.
  4. Carrot juice: Carrot is known for its healthy components that are beneficial for the eyes. Recent studies have revealed that they are great for the brain too. Like other colored vegetables, they are a great source of antioxidant and have a high content of beta-carotene. Carrot juice can reduce the inflammation of the brain cells and improve memory. Carrot juice is not at all bitter and the same can be consumed every alternate day after your meal.
  5. Cocoa: A Harvard study revealed that two cups of cocoa on a daily basis greatly helps a person in improving memory. Cocoa contains flavanols that keep the blood pressure normal and relaxes the blood vessel linings. Cocoa is also known to be a great antioxidant agent that limits the free radical to affect the brain cells. Cocoa should not be overloaded with sugar and should be consumed hot before starting your day.

The caffeine in chocolate, coffee, and tea are actually stimulants to which you can get addicted. If you stop taking caffeine abruptly, you may have symptoms for a day or more, especially if you consume two or more cups of coffee a day. Symptoms of withdrawal from caffeine include: headache, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, depressed mood, and difficulty concentrating. Caffeine does not cause anxiety but the withdrawal can.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help.

I am CA Final Student, cannot concentrate on my studies specially theory subjects, what to do to improve concentration & interests in subjects? Even sometimes I doubt myself whether I can clear the exam or not? please advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is a very tough exam and I m not surprised that all kinds of doubts can enter your mind. It would help to do group studies with with one more person or a small group of interested individuals. You may also try to make short notes of the theory subjects to study easily. You can follow these simple rules to improve your concentration: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises (in fact Yoga has some good exercises for focus and concentration like looking at your thumb and at candle light), 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. Afternoons are a bad time to do study by reading. 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. In a calm disposition concentration is much better and you will be able to study better. You may need to make notes and reduce the quantity of material to be studied and that will make it easier. Today the syllabi is very heavy and so it is difficult but you must find ways of giving more important topics more of your time and attention and that way you will prioritize y

Importance of Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry

Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT), Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (BOT)
Occupational Therapist, Delhi
Importance of Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry

Psychiatric treatment is never in the hands of a single person. Mental health treatment is a collaborative effort between the psychiatrist, occupational therapist, individual and his or her support system. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to engage people in some sort of activity to enhance their ability to lead a meaningful life. This need not be restricted to work but can include simple things like cooking, exercising, painting etc.

To understand what kind of treatment a patient needs, an occupational therapist will first assess the person, their needs and concerns. They understand how an illness or a particular life event can impact a person's ability to perform routine tasks. The counselor and therapist will then work together with the patient to explore possible lifestyle changes and set goals related to this. These changes are centered around the patient's strengths and preferences and take into consideration the occupations that are the most meaningful to the patient. An occupational therapist can then help the patient develop the necessary skills and find ways to make their daily lifestyle easier to handle. Thus, their lives become meaningful and satisfying and they feel a sense of achievement.

Occupational therapists also address social barriers towards the rehabilitation of a person in a community. This is done through interventions that focus on building the patient's existing skill set, creating opportunities for social integration, preventing a relapse and modifying the environment. Some of the barriers it addresses include:

  1. Stigma: By providing the patient with an opportunity to master a skill, occupational therapy boosts self confidence. This helps address the stigma against people with mental difficulties being able to form strong interpersonal relationships.
  2. Safety: A person suffering from a mental disorder is often understood to not be able to take care of himself. By helping the patient create routines for himself and giving him the confidence to perform daily tasks like cooking etc, he is at a much lower risk of accidents than before.
  3. Socioeconomic status: By giving the patient the necessary skill set to hold a job and collaborating with employers and educators, an occupational therapist can help raise a person's socioeconomic status.

Occupational therapy can benefit any person diagnosed with a mental illness or who has recently undergone a traumatic accident. It can also benefit this person's friends and family who form his support system by teaching them how to balance their caregiving with daily responsibilities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychiatry and ask a free question.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.
