I am a 18 old male and have low memory power for last 3 months. What should I do.?

Dear , the best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.

Hello sir. I am 20 years old. I have stammering problem. I can't speak properly. Friends make laugh on me. I can't speak to anyone due to stammering. I became frustrated. I can not attend any social program. Can't attend lectures or group discussions. I am a engineering student. But my life became hell for stammering. Sir how can I get rid from it?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

It calls addiction of tranquilizer. please take him to any psychiatrist as soon as possible. If his dependency created on that then it is difficult for him to come out from the addiction. So do treatment from any psychiatrist. Don't get irritated on him. Need to do supportive hand to your brother to overcome from the disease. Try to understand his pain ,he is ill. So take care of him. Thank you, best luck. Don't worry.

Is psychologist treatment good enough to cure depression? Is it worth the effort invested?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
If the depression is mild, CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) can show good results. It can be given by a psychiatrist, clincal psychologist or trained person. All the best.

I am a student and whenever I tried to remember something I forget that after sometime. Whenever I studied some answers or words meaning I forget everything after sometime. What should I do please help me.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Just do this small exercise: Sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall straight up, making 90 degree angle for 5 mins. Its better you do in early morning, else you can do it anytime. This will make your blood flow increased towards brain and increase your memory and physical strength too will be increased. And try to have Naturamore Male powder 1 spoon in morning and evening as it has all nutrients supplements that our body needs which will give you relief. If you having problem in getting it, just let me know, I will send you. Still if you have any queries, please ask. Take care. :)

I am 35 year old I have been suffering from depression since 10 year. I am eating now fluvoxin CR100. But due to my bike accident I did stop this medicine since 2month. With out medicine I feel good. Weather this will continue or not.

The most important thing is how are you feeling? no body can be in a better position than you, who can tell, whats good for you. So if you are feeling better without the medication, then you can continue without it. Do not be preoccupied by the feeling that you will not do good. More than the condition your thoughts will hurt you. So live freely, do your work, get active, do any form of exercise, do what makes you happy, drink lots of water. Try these things and get back to me and tell me how you feel.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

I want to increase my concentration power so that I can stdy better And learn easily please suggest some tips I also forget the things and its hard for me to learn the things.

M.Sc Applied Psychology, Advanced Diploma Child Guidance & Counselling
Psychologist, Delhi
Hello try to study in a place where there are minimal distractions. Organise your study table. Form a schedule for your study. Try to break your study material in smaller chunks and then try to study. Don't study for longer duration, take break in between. This will help you to concentrate and learn better. For increasing concentration you can do simple crossword puzzles. Even practicing yoga and meditation could help. Also it is important to understand the reasons for low concentration. Try to reflect about it. Sometimes when we are stressed due to difficult life circumstances we do face such issues. I hope these tips will help you.

You have not mention here that you are in relation with her now a days or not. You are a student & you have to focus on your studies. When she comes in your mind take a deep breath and think about your priority that is your future. Again and again when her thought comes in your mind just do same as. When your mind recall your priority then only your future and future plans will come in your mind. This will take time but it will work. Have patience and be positive always.

Sir, I broke up with my girl 1 year and 6 months ago but still can not forget her what to do? this is harming my personal life also? Please advise.

Hi lybrate-user, you need to have proper counseling for the same. Break ups are tough and to manage your emotional well being is important. First thing to do is remove any painful triggers that you may have around. Try to be more active and social. See the bigger picture and realize if this break up will matter to you 5 years down the lane.

Mother feels discomfort and depressed. She doesn't get sleep although she doesn't have any sort of tension.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Diabetes and depression go together in many persons. Depression is a disorder of brain chemicals causing feelings. It does not come through only tension. Please request your doctor to refer her to psychiatrist or let him/her consult a psychiatrist on your mother's behalf. She may be given an antidepressant in addiction to other medicines. Let her not try any sleeping tablets on her own. Unless depression is treated, she will not be able to sleep with sleeping tablets also.
