you have to change your diet and lifestyle. take cold milk twice in a day. avoid tea coffee,chillies,spicy oily food. eat more of fruits and fresh vegetables. eat small meals frequently. never stay hungry. get an upper GI endoscopy to see if ur ulcers are healed. an uncomplicated ulcer heals in 4 to 6 wks.

Dear lybrate-user, it is not sometimes. You are unable to perform when you are dull, not interested condition. When you are interested, motivated, you are always perfect and do everything well. You need to be self motivated. Motivation therapy should help you. Consult psychologist online or offline for counseling. Take care.

How to increase the memory power to keep more and more times any things is remembered.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Dear, I understand that you are worried for his health and immediate treatment. But first he will need to see a psychiatrist and a counsellor to understand and diagnose what mental problem he has. After the diagnosis, treatment with medication, home remedies, stress counselling can be suggested. Counselling is a confidential and unbiased space for the client to talk and learn to solve their problems in an effective way without feeling too much tension. But, for any illness, eating a healthy diet, which is suitable to the patients needs is the first step. After that, exercising like walking, running, swimming is suggested for the fitness of body and mind. He might need some rest for mental, physical and emotional recuperation. I suggest that he could take a brief holiday to disconnect from his tensions, but later try to learn productive ways to either resolve or cope with his stress triggers.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment. The same applies to alcohol or chewing tobacco.

When you start to feel tense and angry, try to isolate yourself for 15 minutes and concentrate on relaxing and calm, steady breathing: Inhale and exhale deeply 3 or 4 times in a row. Count slowly to four as you inhale. Count slowly to eight as you exhale. Focus on feeling the air move in and out of your lungs. Concentrate and feel your ribs slowly rise and fall as you repeat the exercise. Stop and revert to normal breathing if you start to feel dizzy. Take Regular Exercise and Keep Fit The hormones that we release when we are angry - mainly cortisol and adrenaline - are similar to those produced when we are stressed to help us to escape from danger. The release of these hormones is an evolutionary trait, useful if you are trying to run away from a mammoth but maybe less important in modern life where, for most of us, such life-threatening situations do not occur regularly. When you exercise regularly your body learns how to regulate your adrenaline and cortisol levels more effectively. People who are physically fit have more optimum levels of endorphins; endorphins are hormones that make you feel good and therefore less likely to feel angry. Sleep Sleep is an important part of life and good quality sleep can help combat many physical, mental and emotional problems, including anger. When we sleep, the body and mind rest and rebuild damaged cells and neural pathways. We all know that people often feel better after a good night’s sleep. The optimum level of good quality sleep is about 7 hours a night, however everybody is different and you may need more or less than this. Don't Hold Grudges We all need to accept that everybody is different and that we cannot control the feelings, beliefs or behaviours of others. Try to be realistic and accept that people are the way they are, not how we would like them to be. Being resentful or holding a grudge against somebody will increase your anger and make it more difficult to control. You cannot change how other people behave or think but you can change how you deal with others but working on a positive attitude.

Dear Shital, Rahul can use nicotine gum with any other treatment for pancreatic problem. After all, Rahul was smoking with pancreatic problem and treatment. Now, Rahul wants to stop smoking.

Dear lybrate-user, smoking is injurious to health. Even when you take one cigarette per day, it is capable of cancer. Quitting is not that easy. Though deaddiction therapy is useful, I would suggest you to just quit it in one go on a fine day. You need to sustain it with the help of will power. Motivation therapy and mind power therapy should help you. Please consult a psychologist

Doctor, I'm a 36 year old girl. I have a slight loss of memory when it come to work that I keep forgetting about certain works I did the day before or the payments I made and received. This is creating a little problem at work. And I do keep over thinking about my future as I want a career and I have been getting proposals for marriage, when i'm not at all ready for it. I wish to work and make some money. I keep avoiding all the family get together and meetings with relatives as they keep asking me about my exams (I'm a CA student. I wanted to be a designer in the first place, but was ok with mothers choice. Even I agreed to it. But I regret it very badly now. I asked several times to switch my career choice and all I kept getting as reply was "try. Try" I am literally tired now. I could not pass the levels in B A and now I stand with a UG degree and 3 years experience. Best part is articleship is not counted as experience when you apply for jobs. I still tried and my applications are getting rejected. I sleep a lot. I keep thinking a lot. And I'm worried about my future. Above these worries to have a proper career, my parents want me to get married. I do not want to marry without my own job, and live the rest of my life with someones money. I want my own income. Doctor, I do not know if these are nonsense or if i'm being immature, but I do face a lot of mental stress and my friends say that I have changed and become more silent, when I used to be a very lively person. I want support from my parents side. All I want is that. If I should be able to do something, then I need only them to be strong and have faith in me and god. I tried convincing them, but every next time they come up with another proposal that too of 31 and 32 years old,(they think age defines maturity, but I do not believe when they them self is an example. As I have not mentioned anything about my choices. Please guide me if i'm wrong with my views regarding life and career. Thank you Doctor.

First of all, take a fresh diary and write on its first page as to. What do you want? there seems to be an amalgamation of lot of people's desires in your case. Of course I stand by your view that financial independence should be a first priority. Give everything to to your passion and work for it, you will succeed. Do not let the fear of outcome overshadow it. You should know if plan a doesn't work, one should move to. Plan b, plan c. Till one gets what one wants. It is better to take your own decision and fail rather than take someone else's and sulk all life. You should be ready to fail. Fail. And you will never fail eventually. What must happen will happen so just go for it!

Hi I want to know one thing and that is I have one family member who is 18 years old and does not have any friend and he does not like to talk with anyone occasionally, he also feels like he is in depression, he does not went outside from his house and he stays at his house almost whole day so sometimes he also takes the snaps of bad things etc. He also do takes the snaps of his house labours and the snaps of the roads. When we all asked him the reason behind all of these things then he simple says like this I always live inside in my house, I does not go outside at any point of time, so now I want to know that does all these things (behaviours) of my that family member are normal or not, the actual reason for this behaviour can be because my that family member lives almost in house (does not went outside, lack of having friends. Or not.

I don't think it is lybrate-user simple as that. Due to his age, it is very likely that there is some connection to events in his childhood or genes that has to be investigated. This can be ideally processed by a counselor and if that person thinks that he needs medical help then s/he may recommend a doctor. Then he would need to cooperate with both therapies for the best results. Anyway, in life we must follow these three important rules: Always Be responsible with everything we say and do; Always Be respectful with everything we say and do; and always be function with what we do. He is defaulting in all three.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Intelligence is experience and knowledge. The more you read the more intelligent you are. Don't confuse yourself. You can also achieve anything. Have high aspirations and try hard to achieve those aspirations. Nothing can stop uou except your attitude. Keep a positive attitude. I suggest online educational counselling. Take care.

You just do this small exercise: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall, straight up, making 90 degree angle for 10-15 mins. This will help you get you blood supply to brain and increase memory power too.

Dear friend, first know as what is it that you actually want. Sacrificing means doing something which is not a preferred choice. It is suppressing what you want in some way and what is suppressed does not evaporate but gets magnified. I hope you realize that an individual, because he is an individual is selfish to the core, the sooner you realize it the better it is. If you want money, draw a line and be one tracked and you will eventually get it. Try being honest to yourself. It is not very easy

Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for your query. Antidepressant need at least 2 week to show their effect. Unfortunately some patients do not get improvement on one medicine so we have to try 2 to 3 medicine. In such cases we also do cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) which has significantly good results. Get your thyroid profile, Vit B12, Vit D3 done. Start exercise and spent time with friend and family member. Listen to loud music. In your case CBT will work better. All d best!
