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.

Does Daxid 50 mg (two tablets daily) have a role to play in curing sleep apnea? Or is it only to treat depression?

Does Daxid 50 mg (two tablets daily) have a role to play in curing sleep apnea? Or is it only to treat depression?
Daxid is sertraline which is an antidepressant which increases the serotonin uptake in neurons of brain. It is usually prescribed for depression or anxiety symptoms primarily. Now in sleep apnea it can be prescribed for the secondary mood symptoms of the disorder but if it is prescribed only for sleep apnea symptoms then it's not a rational prescription.

Dear , from that negative incident, you could learn many things. Instead, you chose to dwell yourself into negative thoughts. Many people, after such negative incidents, learn to control the whole happenings surrounding their husband and the husband himself. You did not. Their started your problem. You are in a dilemma. You could not control your husband. Along with that you feel helpless and curse yourself for what happened and what is happening. You do not have any mental disease. Your thoughts are a little awkward. We need to correct your attitude and thought process. Rational emotive therapy should work well for you. I can provide you online counseling as well as ret. Please let me know your willingness. Take care.

My friend wants to leave smoking but he can't because every 3 hours he gets sweat n headache if he doesn't smoke. He also can't run more due to this n his breathing becomes fast. He haa tried all nicotine chewing gums but all in vain. What to do?

He will have these reactions as a sign of the withdrawal symptoms but that should not deter him from going ahead. Give him these suggestions: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear lybrate user. Lung function test may not be detecting smoking habit. But blood test may. Nicotine content in blood can be detected. You should stop smoking at least a week before blood test so that nicotine content is not detected. Take care.

You might be under stress. Since you are preparing for final year mbbs exams, please schedule your studies in such a way that you get enough breaks in between. Kindly try to relax your body and mind during these breaks. If possible, go for walk, jog, or some other games or exercise at least for half an hour per day. Have healthy food at regular time and have plenty of water and fruit juices. Learn deep breathing techniques, which will calm your mind. If still the music in your ears persists and if you feel that someone is whispering in your ears, then see a psychiatrist immediately. All the best.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 4 drops of Aspen + 4 drops of Mimulus . Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose). If any problems consult me online.

Hello, I am 18 and belongs to baptized sikh community. My parents are" amritdharis" but I believe in pantheism. So my problem is that my father is very annoying because he consumes illegal drugs and dyes his hair which is against the rules of baptized sikhism. Though he thinks that" sikhism" is great than any other religion. (i am not against any religion or discouraging any other religion or faiths). He beats me, my elder sister and my mother when he didn't get his drugs. Once he had beaten my sister on her birthday very aggressively that she had serious mental issues. Doctors had said that this condition can even kill her, but my father said that this is all due to her that is my elder sister. Secondly, my father is cheap too (i don't mind by saying this because I know how he is). Whenever there something insane is coming on television, he come closer to the tv! sometimes he even record those things on his mobile. He is 8th passed and thinks that he is the most literate person. He know everything. Once I locked some english channels because he is that type of person (i hope you understand what I mean?). He said" what is the need of locking the channels. I used to watch those channels because of bhajan. Hah! he do not understand the language then how will it become his bhajan channel. Thirdly, he is very cheap person because he stares females excluding his family members. Once in our township, an indian idol among the top finalist was invited. Any my father was so excited that he asked for the no. And, as a girl or female, we have the power to sense someone's intention. The idol sensed this thing. And was so irritated with that she rushed from the hall with her family. My father ran after her. But couldn't get to the idol. Then, a friend of my great father asked him why you took the no. Of the idol? then he said that children were forcing for the no. Even everyone know about my father's nature because once he had married a woman and had a daughter too but unfortunately the baby died unexpectedly. The president of the company had given the warning to him but after this he did not changed himself or realized his deed. I am 18 years old girl and in this age temper gets high sometimes very high. Once I argued on some topic with my father and my father fought with me very aggressively because he believes in male domination. And in my school, we had been taught to fought against wrong (as because I am a humanities student). He said that i'll beat you in that way that you'll never be able to argue with me again. Sorry for taking such a long time of yours but this is my problem which I need to solve because with this I can't concentrate on my studies. Thank you.

It may not be possible to change your father. More so since he's under the influence of drugs. What I can see is your safety at stake as you wrote that he beats you. If you can take the support of your family or relatives to intervene and restrict his behavior or inform the police if you can afford to take that step. Here you need to be sure about certain consequences of push back from family and relatives, financial and home security being withdrawn from you etc. Are you in a position to shift elsewhere and someone else bears your expenses etc? you also need to know what you can change and what you cannot change. This will alone bring a lot of peace of mind for you. When he looks at women in the wrong sense, it must be embarrassing for you. But can you do anything about it? you must only learn to take care of your own anger and embarrassment at that time. Counselling will help you to tackle this situation with practical and workable solutions and reduce the emotional stress that you are going through.

It's completely your decision to continue having bisexual relationships but be ready to face consequences if ever your spouse knows about it. Homosexuality or bisexuality is a lifestyle and not a psychiatric disorder. To come out of homosexuality you have to decide for yourself what lifestyle you would like to choose, it becomes difficult when family and society don't accept the lifestyle. A homosexual or bisexual has no less dignity than others but most of these have anxiety or depression related to their orientation. These thoughts of anxiety and depression can be resolved by a psychiatrist or counselor.

If he is currently showing any violent behaviour which could be the worsening condition of his disease. He needs to get admitted in a hospital for treatment. At least he need to get admitted for 15 days of hospitalization. With proper medications and guidance he can get cured but it takes at least 6 to 8 weeks for his recovery. He also needs support from his family members so as to accelerate his recovery.
