She will need medication to control her mood swings and counselling to adapt to situation without hurting others or herself. Lithium/Sodium valproate or Oxytal will do

Exercise may helps to quit smoking
A brief work out helps to reduce the urge for a cigarette for those trying to quit. People who do brisk walking or some other exercise experience less stress anxiety and fewer withdrawal symptoms when trying to give up smoking

There is no curative measures till now for alzheimer's disease. But some food can prevent progression of disease like fish liver oil and food items containing beta carotene and lecithin.

I have a problem of forgetting, I can remember easily but forget after sometime. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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. 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

I am 72 years old. My only daughter after marriage lives in Delhi happily. My wife after retirement works for social cause. For political reason, I left a lucrative job in 1970. The political situation changed and I left politics. My wife still has grievances as I left the job. I don't have any question on my action then. Our financial condition is so so. I don't have regular income. I am quite active, a free lance professional. But my wife's expectation is higher which I failed to fulfill. This is causing negative feelings in me often. How do I overcome the situation ?

Just like speed, tobacco also thrills but untimely kills.
People should understand this and stop use of tobacco smoking and chewing.

This problem related to psychological. No need of any medicines. Memory exercises, memory management are required to you. Write main thoughts on note book repeatedly read it. Always memorise your main thoughts. Do not give any chance of negative thoughts. Tell your main thoughts to your friendly. Write as a text in cell phone as a text read it every day. Write your today works in today arrangements column in cell phone read it do it. Urgent works also write in the urgent column in cell phone. Use cell phone as your own clinic. Read and think and tell always positive aspects only. Best of luck.

My husband is 26 years old, He is constantly taking alcohol on every sundays sometimes twice a week. He also smokes at least 1 or 2 cigarette per day. Would it affect his health If so how to stop it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
His level of drinking sounds okay unless he gets drunk and makes a scene every weekend. The smoking is never advised at all. If you talk to him about your concerns without nagging him, it is possible to seek his cooperation and get him to give it up easily. If he comes from a family background of alcoholics and addicts, then he may develop an addiction over a period of time and succumb to heavy drinking and smoking. Unfortunately many wives, with good intentions no doubt, actually drive a man to further drinking and into addictions too by being overly concerned and nagging that the man then challenges the controlling, and defiantly finds a resort in abuse levels of indulgence. So be very cautious, and with an amicable approach discuss the matter rationally and come to a consensual decision. In fact two drinks a day for a man is even good. The smoking is definitely not healthy for him, for you and the family. Since he is not smoking too many cigarettes, he should be able to give it up without much ado.

Hi lybrate-user, yes its true that even 3 cigs per day may increase your chance of getting cancer. Also over time no. Of cigerrettes increase as addiction level increases. So as doctor advise, its better you quit at early stage.
