Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3.Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Hello sir. I have a query related to my mental issue. As doctors says I am suffering from ocd problem from last 2 yrs. There is no positive results are coming. There are 15 doctors treated me. And all are well experienced. So I am finally hopeless. Approx 14 hours I am sleeping in 24 hours. Because if I don't do this I just can't control my self. And there is no such thoughts are coming in my mind which are related to ocd. But it is true my problem was started with an word like- I wanted to forgot something and for this I was started to many things. And finally I have gone in very deep. But at this time I am not doing something for this but my illusion-"i have problem" are not going. Please answer me that is it any mental issues of human being are there that can't be treat.

I am sure you are one the many people who have not combined medication with therapy. You absolutely need this and so you must return to medication and counseling. OCD can be easily explained away by too obvious a cause like you mention but it is more complicated. However, the bottom line of OCD is fear. Some deep-rooted fear that has not been handled properly is causing this reaction in you. Normally, when one type of medication does not work within 8 weeks, another is resorted to. Nothing is, therefore, hopeless unless you yourself give up. This si where counseling comes in very handy: it will help you stay motivated and keeps the desire going too. There may be some childhood trauma or setting where this fear has found itself and since it has not been resolved it will continue to plague you like this. Deal with the fear and you will have some relief, if not complete​ recovery.

Good evening sir, my name is suresh. My parents are some kind of mental people. Our family is a very respectable and traditional family I want to mingle with all kind of people and I am interested in public relations. L love people and spending time with people. My parents don't understand the situation correctly they don't listen to any body. I am a btech student due to them inferiority was created in me and I could overcome with the help of a doctor. After that one day they said me as psycho from that day onwards even I want to concentrate on studies I cannot. I want to kill my parents. Don't think me as I have some kind of personality disorder.

Dear lybrate user, you said that your family is respectable family and what do you think who made your family respectable in society, of course parents. Parents are the root of the family. They grown up you and made you able to do a such prestigious course like btech. Then why you think like that. I think problem in your case is of understanding only. Talk openly to them about the real problem, you can take help of your other relative whom you and your parents both trust. Actually this is a type of generation gap, where you think on any matter in one way and your parents since they are experienced they think on the same in another way. Your future lies in your studies so concentrate on your studies, then you will find no time to think about all this. Do meditation and yoga daily to relax your self and for better concentration.

How helpful is puzzle solving to sharpen my memory?

Post Graduate Diploma In Rehabilitation Psychology, M A Clinical Psychology
Psychologist,
Hi Good question! Puzzles, brainteasers etc are indeed helpful to sharpen your memory. Every time we form a memory a neural brain connection is created. Memory creation is associated with the strengthening of existing connections or the growth of new connections between neurons_ which are specialized cells to transmit information.When we solve puzzles we brainstorm in order solve it, we apply available knowledge and logic, we recall facts, we try hit & trial from previous experiences. In doing so at neural level we help the neural synapses firing going and we revive the connection each time thus strengthening memory. I hope it help. ALL THE BEST.

I have been addicted to smoking from last 5 years. I wanna quit this but unable to overcome it. I have also tried nicotine gums but they are of no use. Please suggest me a better way to quit this habit.

MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi a better way to deal with smoking is to make a target date. A date beyond which you will stop buying or sharing cigarettes with friends. Thus inform everyone around you about your decision to stop smoking after a certain date. Doing this is known to improve motivation to achieve abstinence. Now until dat day you have to gradually and actively try to decrease one or two smokes a day. You can also stop buying packs and throw cigarettes before finishing. Avoid going into stressful situations as dat increases craving. There is a medication which you can buy from chemist called champax once daily. Use a nicotine gum for next 20_30days whenever you get craving. If you succeed in staying away from it for, 4-6days you will feel much confident in quitting. Hope this feels. Feel free to consult further.

I become angry so fast in seconds on my brother, sister and mother. My age is 16 and I am a student. I cry so much while anger on my family members only. Please give me a quick solution for these problems, due to these problems I am little hated by my family.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc.

How can I increase my memory? I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

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
Dear, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Hello Lybrate user, Please contact a professional, (such as a doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, counselor, social worker, etc.) if you have been feeling depressed for 2 or more weeks. Therapy/counseling with a psychologist can be very helpful for people suffering from depression. The length (number of weeks) of therapy however, depends on the individuals needs and/or the type insurance coverage a person may or may not have. Medication is also available for people who are" clinically" depressed and can be taken with or without therapy/counseling. Medication indicated for the treatment of depression must be prescribed by psychiatrist. And start following some exercise: 1. Meet with a friend for a walk Socializing can be exhausting even when we’re not depressed. But contact with a friend can be a great source of emotional support and compassion. Meeting a friend for a walk – with or without a dog – can be a great way of combining casual social interaction with moderate physical activity. If your friend doesn’t know you’re depressed, that’s OK. You’re not obligated to tell them. If they do, that’s OK too. Plus, being out walking can take the edge off any feelings of awkwardness or nervous anxiety, whether talking about depression or any other subject. You’re not exclusively focused on the conversation and person you’re with. Quick tip: If in the past you’ve tended to make plans, then felt too depressed to go ahead with them, see if your friend can come to your place to meet you. Unless you’re having a particularly bad day, knowing your friend is outside – and a polite but persistent knock on the door – may give you the extra kick to get you out and about. 2. Do some gardening or cleaning. Interestingly, the longitudinal review of over 26 years of research specifically included gardening as part of the daily moderate physical activity which can have a profound impact on treating and preventing depression. Have a garden? Get out there and plant some seeds, mow the lawn or get some pruning done. You don’t need to blitz the entire front or back yard in one go, but this activity has the added advantage of being able to see the results of your efforts, which can be a great motivator. Live in an apartment? Give it a little bit of a spruce. Clean a cupboard, the fridge or your bedroom. It’s all activity, particularly any scrubbing or washing. 3. Take a pet for a walk. I received so many positive stories from those with depression who were helped by having a furry friend that I wrote an article about it. Dogs in particular have a lot of rather infectious energy and need to walk (or run) it off every day. So why not combine the energy and love of a four-legged companion with the relatively moderate effort involved in walking and take a stroll in the park? Don’t have a dog? Offer to walk a friend or neighbor’s. That way you do your friend a favor and enjoy the benefits of dog-walking as part of your depression treatment strategy without having to worry about the responsibility of looking after the dog when the walk is over. Anything particularly strenuous in any of that? Didn’t think so, but it still counts as moderate physical activity and can help you feel better and beat or prevent depression if done for 30 minutes each day. Now, in my previous article on how to exercise when depressed, I emphasized the importance of whisker goals as a way to build up your level of physical activity by starting off in small, manageable chunks. Even the above suggestions for moderate exercise can be started off in small manageable chunks for just a few minutes each. Don’t try and do too much too quickly, else the anticipation of future exercise which again takes up lots of time and energy may be enough to put you off any more attempts. Interestingly, the study by Andrea Dunn helps here: it showed that three periods of 10 minutes’ exercise per day can have a similar effect to a single 30-minute block. So, when you feel ready, consider two or three whisker goals of 10 minutes’ period of exercise each day.
