I think I have lost some memory or a center in my brain which controls understanding has slowed down. Can't keep a control over how I feel. Are blood pressure levels responsible for this? I feel either I have a psychiatric problem or a health problem.

You could have both in the form of stress. Stress is a memory buster. Even so you can do the following as meticulously as possible for the best results. You are young and if you implement my suggestions, you will carry good memory far into your future. Additionally there are these left brain exercises which are tremendously useful, if you need them, you will need to contact me on my private domain. But here goes for the other things that can be done with great success. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So catch a good 8 hours of sleep every day. 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, 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better 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.

Nothing good has happened in my life since a year I have terrible anxiety, Most of the time Too much negativity around me. So since a year I've been sitting completely alone in college and None of the girls want to talk to me Because the professors Try to like flirt with me. All the proffesors are really young. I give them hints to stop, bluntly confront them by saying sir, please don't make so much eye contact with me, the other people in the class feel bad but they never listen. The girls feel bad They keep on making eye contact with me. It looks really bad, know. I was even the CR Of the class So that added up to the problems. Class representative. I was give a lot of work. I got really frustrated with everything and I decided to leAve that post. My family knows about this and they too worry. The college professors are seeing me like for the 100th time not the first time then why do they have to act like that? 1st time they see me I can understand They will come next to my desk n teach n what not. It's annoying If I sit on the last bench also they will come and teach there. I've always respected teachers I can't live peacefully I don't give them any dirty hints. I'm suffering from a bad allergy too I have an allergy Of cold n dust I was earlier unaware of it So like previous October to cool myself I used to have a lot of cold water That's caused my allergy to become really severe So severe that I find it hard to breAthe So that also added to my anxiety I have usually had a good immunity However I had suffered once from vitamin D deficiency. That seemed to have made my immunity weakMy mother doesn't talk to me She went off to London [And after 2-3 months She completely stopped talking to me So since 4 months we have not spoken I told my family about all this My grandparents and my father stay with me My grandfather took it in a negative way He started misbehaving with me Doing a little drama. Acting weird Instead of helping n supporting me I broke down And I have around 4-5 close friends 2-3 of them ditched me in May They just completely stopped talking to me for no reason However that's not much of an issue now They suddenly started talking again also and I didn't push it further too And question them too much. I feel really anxious and low. How do I help myself?

After reading what you have asked, i would say that its not easy to tell you in few lines what to do to help yourself, I think the good idea would be to meet a counselor and discuss your concerns. There seem to be complicated things in your life and a counselor can help you learn skills to cope with these issues. It can take few sessions of intervention.

Bach Flower Remedies

MD - Homeopathy, Masters Degree of Homoeopathy
Homeopath, Mumbai
Bach Flower Remedies

We all realize that a person's well-being is a mix of physical and emotional health. It is never possible that a person suffering from major anxiety, depression, attention disorder, sleep disorders, stress, or mental trauma can have a perfectly normal physical health.  The Bach Flower remedies are one of the well-proven methods of healing one's emotional imbalances, helping mankind achieve happiness and joy.

Dr. Edward Bach discovered the benefits that flowering trees and plants can have on healing one's emotional problems.  These became extremely popular in the 1930s and help a person to positively deal with negative emotions and behavior patterns. The overall result is an improved well-being, both emotionally and physically, leading to overall happiness.

How it works: Dr. Bach discovered 38 flowers, each of them contributing in some way to the emotional well-being of a person. Each flower improves emotional negativity in some way. These 38 include some of the common ones like pine, mustard, oak, and walnut to rare ones like larch, rock rose, etc. Each flower is associated with an emotion. For instance, pine is associated with guilt, mustard with deep gloom for no reason, elm with overwhelmed feeling due to loaded responsibilities, etc.
  
Bach flower remedies or BFRs as they are called, are solutions containing brandy and water.  Dr. Bach believed that dew found on the flower petals had preserved the healing properties of the plant and can be used to heal.  While the water contains extreme dilutions of this dew material, the brandy acts as a preservative.

There is a Bach questionnaire that needs to be answered.  This will help identify the right flower remedies needed for a particular person.  In a vast majority of cases, it would be a combination of 6 to 7 remedies that are combined to make a personalized combination.  Over a period of time, the negative emotions will be replaced with positive ones.  The safety and popularity of this remedy is so wide that children, elderly people, pregnant women, and even pets and plants have benefited from this.

How do you make your customized therapy?

Take an empty 30 ml bottle that has a dropper in the lid, which you can get at the local pharmacy store. To this, add two drops of each selected remedy. Alternately, you could also use 4 drops of the formula that is available pre-mixed, which works in most cases.  To this bottle with drops of the flower remedies, add plain, mineral water.  Take 4 drops of this at least 4 times every day.

This is an extremely popular and well-proven method of healing, with the Bach foundation continuing to propagate the teachings and remedy of Dr. Bach.

I am feeling very depressed. All environment whether college or Home or anything else I just feel bad. So there is not a place where I am not under the scrutiny of people. I feel like Someone is Always Watching me. I am constantly anxious. Not a single place is there where I am not tensed. Whether it's eating or listening or driving or whatever. Be it motivational videos, Funny videos, waking up from sleep, music I feel OK for some time but I myself know that this is going to be over. What should I do doctor to have this effect over and be normalized. My parents, few Relatives, Some batch mates and unknown people all aggravate this problem. I am having some sort of ocd and all above mentioned people enjoy it .But I can tackle it. I will undoubtedly 100% follow your instructions.

You can send me a private message for same after being evaluated by a psychiatrist.

Dear Ajay. Welcome to lybrate. A person above 50 will be naturally ageing. Secondly there is no safe limit to alcohol consumption. Alcohol is a poison and your liver will be damaged even if you take a single peg. Take care.

To solve yoru sleep problem do the following: 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. For the depression you must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

You are living in a fantasy world of make-believe. In that state, nothing can happen nor be achieved. There could be something troubling you enough for you to want to live in this dream world. I suggest that you meet with a counselor and examine this tendency; It may be linked to something more serious. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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.

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.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Rules in a relationship must be consensual. If he is controlling you, he could be insecure about you. Anyway why would you want to live in such circumstances with your freedom curbed in such a manner? If his nature ?was? good, what has happened to it now? That was in his past. It is the present that matters. Normally every boy and girl show conscious and good behavior in the beginning just to win the other over. Once they have achieved that, they show their true colors. You are probably seeing his true nature now and if it does not look good, run far away from him. He has let you down and you were in love with his former self, which was a facade. I think that you should abandon this love and seek one from new pastures, however much you love him. You must learn fast and be true to yourself. I hope I am wrong and he is much better than your description of him. But be sensible and think rationally before you act.

please remember it is very easy to get addicted but very difficult to quit. You need to meditate and talk to your support groups and find what" you" really are and what you would like to" become. Also remember, for long term addictions it is common to relapse. It is like you are repeating the same mistake and wished if only you could help it! the point is to accept and forgive yourself and be stronger next time and make a commitment to yourself first.

Urine urgency and severe constipation. Taking medication for depression paroxetine.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Urine urgency and severe constipation. Taking medication for depression paroxetine.
Dear Naseem, Mild constipation may occur with paroxetine because, usually it decreases appetite and you tend to eat less. My patients have not reported severe constipation so far due to paroxetine. Mld one can be treated with more liquid intake, more fiber in diet or isabgol. Urine urgency may not be due to paroxetine. i feel it is due to anxiety associated with depression. Severe constipation also may be due to depression itself. Please consult your doctor again and she/he may increase the dose of paroxetine or add another antidepressant or anxiolytic. All the best.

Hi, I have a question, I think a friend of mine is going through depression. The cause for the same is she takes all the things negative on herself. This she is doing for years but never reflected but now this since she is thinking that nothing is happening as she wants, this negative behavior is reflected in her talks. I think this is a kind of depression only. Kindly let me know if this is a depression or only a behavior which will get resolved when the things get in her favor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Right now there are no signs of depression but over time she can develop it. To me she is sounding pessimistic and it may be because of the reason you mention. She should ideally examine herself and see why she is experiencing so many failures in life. How much is she the cause? Very often we precipitate negative happenings towards us by certain factors in our self. If she is suffering from a rejection issue from some events in childhood, she could be living and sending out signals to attract the same. Kindly get in touch with me for some literature on this that could help her get out of the failure mode and shift to the success mode. With so many failures I myself will be affected. But if she can prevent the failures by certain adaptations, she could turn the events in her life to great levels of achievement.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This could happen due to laziness. Lazyness at the age of 19 is rather related to hormones. You hace to overcome this hormonal compulsion by recreating your life style to a more creative fashion. Make a new habit. Be hard on old habits. I suggest online counselling. Take care.

Hi, get your blood tested for cbc, hb%, s. Calcium, s. Ferritin and esr. Simple nutritional deficiency can cause general weakness of the body. Would advise you to take homoeopathic medicines - alfaalfa tonic and five phos. - both thrice daily, and let me know about your condition after a month. Management: daily intake more of healthy, nutritious and balanced food which includes green vegetables, seasonal fruits, salads, legumes, pulses, eggs, milk & milk products, oats, cornflakes, muesli, nuts, lean meat (chicken & few seafood), etc. Keep yourself well-hydrated by taking at least 10-12 glasses of water in a day, also increase intake of other fluids like coconut water, shikanji, jaljeera, gulkand, rooh-afza, lassi, curd, etc. Which has got cooling effect on the body during this hot summer weather. Sleep for 6-9 hrs at night and 1-2 hrs. During daytime. Avoid going out or playing under the sun, best time is after sunset. Wear a hat with broad brim, wear sunglasses whenever you are out in the sun. Don't awake late nights, follow motto of'early to bed, early to rise' avoid unnecessary exertion or stress.

Hi. I am addicted to smoking, I have picked it up since last 3 years and till now continuing. I know its not good for heart as well as lungs. Please give your opinion about how do I quit this habit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, it is very harmful for more than the damage to heart and lungs. You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. 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. 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. 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 chewing 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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Addiction to alcohol can be treated. There are 2 main phases the first phase of treatment is called detoxification to help you tackle your withdrawal, then second phase is relapse prevention. It is a combination of medicines and counselling that helps.
