Without reason you should not take this decision. Discuss with her about her expectation & your expectation or try compromise her if you done any mistake or strengthen your mind & body. This is my idea. If you want you may contact me in person at chennai. Psychologist rajendran.

Consult speech therapist. He will help to develop some vocal exercises. At the same time it is better to consult psychologist. May be it may cause for personality problems. Do not use any medicine. Therapy it is always best. Psychological counselling it improves your method of good thought process. It helps to improve your life style management. It improves your concentration levels. It is better to practice yoga and meditation. Do not be alone. Better to share your inner feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. It is better to spend most of the time with friends. Study hour completed later give priority for friends. Do not waste your time. Feel always comfortable and be flexible. Think always in a positive manner. Better to imitate to some one talk like them. Practice is very important at this stage. Better to communicate with new people it reduces your inferiority complex. Feel good always it is best method to entire life situations. Ok all the best.

I just want to ask about my son. He is 18 years old now, just admitted to engineering in mangalore, karnataka. He has some problem, does all studies but when it comes to show his talent through exam or oral he is not doing well. He says whatever he studies he forgets 80% of it, even I make to write. If this continues he may not do well further in his exams. If possible kindly give advise by giving some remedial solutions. (He plays daily basket ball and also goes for swimming)

Dear , at the age of 18, memory problems like amnesia are not possible. He must be forgetiing what he studied due to performance anxiety or simply because he don't study systematically and effectively. First of all I need to test his memory abilities. If it is ok I will go ahead with further psychotherapy treatment to motivate him and sharpen his understanding skills. Post a detailed private question to me. You can also consult me online. Take care.

Grieving for the loss of a loved an absolutely normal reaction, and at times necessary, for one to achieve closure. Give yourselves some time to cope with the loss. Try and distract yourself by doing things you enjoy doing. If it continues to be difficult, and you remain withdrawn, seek professional therapy, which can help to get over your loss more easily. Don't continue to suffer for too long, else you run the risk of spiraling into depression. Good luck.

At your age this is not surprising due to hormonal factors but this could also mean that there may be may be some developmental factors that are disturbing you too. Please meet with a counselor and attend to these problems. 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 are 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.

There is some stress which you have no0t yet dealt with and so the sleep problem will continue until that is dealt with. In the meantime you may follow these measures: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Hello, I am married few months ago. I and my husband stayed in 2 different countries after marriage, so there was no physical relationship. Now we are together and I am not ready for kids now as I want to spend some time with him, where as my husband is against using any precautions. And he has an opinion of following the natural process. I do not want more time but, to spend at least 3-4 months before planning for a baby. Please suggest the precautions I can take!

Dear , you are already 26. I suggest you to start the process of conception. That is because of the cumbersome problems associated with life. I don't know your husband's age. Must be atleast 30. For him, this is the ideal time to have a kid. Otherwise in old age, you will be in trouble. As well as you may not provide the child with good education and career. Talk to your husband regarding this. It is a myth that you cannot enjoy life with your husband after having child. Life becomes more beautiful for you and your husband after the child is born. Please keep away from myths and from people who advise you without knowing your family situation. I need to talk toyou more on this regard. If you are interested, please book an online counseling session. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. In no way you can control what others are going to sy or others says. Even if you do good, there will be people who ridicule and even if you do bad, there will be people who justify you. Therefore do not heed to people who are in no way going shape your life. I suggest you online counseling. Take care.

I was diagnosed with mild anxiety 5months back. My symptoms include mild palpitations that last for 20-45 minutes. I had checked my BP once when I had these palpitations, it was 150/95. When I checked it otherwise when I wasn't anxious, it was 130/85. Does anxiety cause long term BP issues? I am currently on clonazepam 0.5 mg and etizolam 0.5 mg for anxiety. I am considering pranayam and yoga too as a longer term solution. Should I consider visiting a doctor for my BP or is it normal during anxiety?

Anxiety affects your heart rate and muscle contractions and cause considerable stress. Long term anxiety can cause changes in blood pressure and lead to hypertension. A reduction in stress and anxiety with exercises, meditation, medications etc definitely reduces the blood pressure. Monitor your blood pressure very 10-12 days so as to notice the change. Visit your psychiatrist at scheduled follow ups to consider modifications in medicines accordingly. Consult online for further queries and assitance.

I want you to help me out with a problem that I am enduring right now. I have been married for 10+ years with two kids. My husband has been suffering from erectile dysfunction for quite sometime and we had gone to a sexologist who suggested some routine tests and a penile doppler but the doctor had said that everything was normal with him but gave him Sifasi 5000 IU and asked him to inject it once in three days and also gave Arginitric to consume daily. This happened two months ago and he has been taking the meds off and on. The problem is that he still has the same problem and is anxious most of the time. He has lost interest in everything and he does not like to spend time with either me, the kids or his dog though he claims most of the time that I do not spend time with him. Last week he lied to me and spent time from morning till night with a colleague of his with whom he worked five years back (unmarried girl) and had gone to a film, restaurant and ECR and when he returned home at 10 p.m. I questioned him to which he said I did not have any right to question him. We had a fight and from then he is not talking to me. I want to know what his problem is and why he did such a thing all of a sudden. My kids and I are very upset because of his weird behaviour. Please help.

Dear ns, liking girs or not liking is linked with your experience. When we are born, our mind was like a clean slate. Circumstances and our experience started writing on that slate and those writings became our rules. In this case too, you dislike girls because of your past experience and perception. We need to change that. Better option is to get marrieage. Rational emotive therapy and cognitive restructuring should help you. Post a private question to me with every details and I will help you with this problem. Take care.

The Surprising Role of Nutrition in Mental Health

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
The Surprising Role of Nutrition in Mental Health

The human body can be compared to a very sophisticated engine that gets its power supply from the food that is eaten. Various organs require fuel for different activities be it walking, standing, stretching or even just regular maintenance where cells are constantly replaced.

The brain is one of the most complex organs in the human body. While it may not do a stretching or a jogging, it constantly needs power supply to function effectively. And as is very obvious, the body reflects the eating patterns. It is not likely that a person eating a very healthy diet would end up obese; nor does a person who is athletic eat a lot of unrefined and processed foods.

The power supply also defines how effectively the organs function, especially in the brain. Good nutrition helps good functioning of the brain. Recent studies have shown that a healthy diet can help avoid mental disorders like depression, schizophrenia problem, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), etc. This field of study is called the nutritional psychiatry.

Listed below are some food substances and how they affect brain functioning:

  1. Carbohydrates: These induce the production of insulin, which causes release of sugar into the body. Increased amount of sugar in the body produces better activity and mood. Tryptophan, a significant neurotransmitter is also released and further enhances mood and well-being. Eating fruits and whole grains, which contain a good amount of carbohydrates is believed to have beneficial effects on the brain, albeit slower in onset.
  2. Proteins:  Foods such as fish, eggs, dairy, greens, peas, legumes are rich in protein and contain amino acids, which are the essential ingredients of the various neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. Lack of amino acids like tyrosine can impair production of serotonin, leading to decreased feeling of well-being.
  3. Fats: The gray matter of the brain contains about 50% polyunsaturated fats, and various essential fatty acids are very essential for optimal brain functioning. Decreased levels of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are shown to cause depression. Decreased levels of Omega-3 also leads to dyslexia and autism.
  4. Minerals: Various minerals are very essential for proper functioning of the brain, though they are required in very minute quantities. Calcium, chromium, iodine, iron, lithium, selenium, and zinc are some of the minerals identified as important for brain function.
  5. Vitamins:
  • B-complex: Vitamin B2 and B6 have been proven to enhance mood and improve cognitive performance.
  • Vitamin B12: In addition to delaying the onset of dementia, it also improves cerebral functioning.
  • Folate: Reduced levels lead to depression and also limit the functioning of antidepressants.

As is evident, nutrition plays a very important role and a little care can help improve brain functioning to a large extent. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized dietitian and nutritionist and ask a free question.
