My memory is temprary when I learn somthing then after some time I forgot everything so I need your help how could I increase my memory power?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, 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. 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. 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.

This may not be memory problem. May be related to concentration issues. Try to reduce your stress in your environment, cut down on to your mobile and computer sources. Go for regular exercise.

Hi Doctor, My partner gets hyper immediately, reacts immediately, shouts a lot on every little mistake you do. Never talks in soft tone. What should a I do to help, is this normal or I am thinking tooo much.

This must be getting difficult for you as you see your partner losing her temper often. In counselling you can vent out your feelings, learn to talk assertively and what you might be doing to earn her anger every time. It would be helpful if your partner also meets a counsellor and gets insights and awareness about herself and her behaviour.

Mr. Lybrate user, your brother is suffering from illusions/delusions like which cmes under schizophrenia under psychiatric illness. Inthis condition, he needs proper care& attention from family members, close intimate people, like wife or siblings, parents. First one should know the reason for developing such fears, & his original attitude, now the changed bhaviour& in b/w the reasons like any shocks, mental stress, any subconscious worries he has, any conflicts, his failures, etc all should be understood to treat him properly, he need counscelling also. In this condition, firts doctor also should be bery careful to understand the reason, so that they should be more friendly to develop frinedly intimacy. &moreover you should not say directly that its psychiatric propblem & need to see psychiatrist. In homeo, if patient& with the information given by family members, by understanding origin, causative factors, by giivng suitable medicines, he will develop gradual improvement. But not so quickly as you are expecting. In allopathy, by taking medicines, he will get improvement but there will be side effcets, & adverse effcts are there. He needs more famly members co operation& support now.

Hello, the best way of releasing the mental stress/ tension is through exercises (sp. Yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. But as you have high b. P, consult and do the exercises under a qualified instructor/ yoga-teacher only. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back. Stress can make mental health problems worse.

Relax and take it easy. Social adjustments at times becomes difficult specially if you find things r not moving as per your desire or expectation. You might be having your own views on so many things which donot match with others and that is where the conflict starts. For the time being I suggest- whenever you are talking with any family members/ friend/ relative first agree to their views and later on after some time - may be hrs / days you express your opinion after keeping and analysing the others point of view. That will establish a harmonious relationship with others and you will feel like staying with them and enjoy their company.

I am 31 year old , I have clear speech and stammering problem since childhood , till now very serious problem, so give me perfect solution.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Hello, there is no medicines and surgeries for stammering. It requires your dedicated and constant monitering and excerises of co-ordinating breathing voices and articulation. It takes your patience and persistance to stop stammering. 1) donot worry about why it came as science has been trying to prove the causes since they came to know about the stammering. 2) if your speaking very fast slowing your speech is very important and first in stammering. 3) there is a speech jammer apps available on android market freely downloadable which will help you spesk slowly and fluently. 4) practice reading slowly. 5) most importantly you need to consult an speech language pathologist at the earliest. Thank you.

I am in a physical relationship with a man who is married & who I love. I too am married. The man I love says he is committed & loves his wife and can never ever think of leaving her ever. While he also has multiple sexual relationships with other women. I fail to understand if he loves his wife truly and is committed to her than why does he opts for sexual relationships, that too with multiple women. What is his psyche behind this? Isn't he betraying his wife? If there is betrayl than how can he claim to love his wife? He also told me that once you are inyour 40s and 50s you need a support to look after you, to care for you and if you get a good person, you shouldn't ever leave her. While I am very straight forward, I will divorce my husband as I don't love him. Please help.

While you raise some pertinent questions about this man?s professed commitment to his wife and that he is fooling around with other women, I fail to understand how it matters to you! He is that kind of a man: he wants his cake and eat it too; and he is successfully doing it. What is baffling is that you know that this is not appropriate; you know that he is betraying his wife; you know that he is sleeping around with so many women, yet you yourself are bedding with him and have no qualms about letting down another woman i.e. his wife! You are also encouraging this man in his infidelity and making him feel that it is okay to sleep around. Even if you do not love your husband, you are in an unacceptable relationship for various reasons and I do not know what justifications you can cook up to make your aiding and abetting with this man?s unacceptable liaisons, look acceptable! It is almost like the frying pan calling the kettle black! You be the judge of your behavior and let him be answerable for his actions. Analyzing his actions, while encouraging them yourself is not in the right league at all. Just for your understanding anyway, men will justify and make something that is grossly illegitimate look very legitimate when they themselves are indulging in it. The explanation he gave you when being in your 40s and 50s is a whole lot of crap, but you seemed to have accepted it without question!

You need to develop your coping skills to reduce the stress and worries. Accumulated emotions often cause the stress and worries. Try to release your negative emotions through the different ways such as sharing, writing the emotions, yoga, deep breathing, acupressure etc.

Dear, the clinical picture of schizophrenia is dominated by relatively stable, often paranoid, delusions, usually accompanied by hallucinations, particularly of the auditory variety (hearing voices), and perceptual disturbances. These symptoms can have a huge effect on functioning and can negatively impact a person? s quality of life. I am sorry to say, paranoid schizophrenia is a lifelong illness, but with proper treatment, a person suffering from the illness can live a higher quality of life. Please work with your psychiatrist for management of your symptoms. Take care.

Hello, as per your complaints- weakness, easy fatiguability, low energy levels, hair loss, low stamina- it seems like you have some disturbance. It can be caused by both psychological causes such as underlying affective disorder in the form of depression; as well as an underlying endocrine dysfunction such as hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, hypopituitarism can also cause similar symptoms. It is also possible that you might have both the causes concurrently. Hence to find the cause, a detailed assessment is required which would involve a detailed discussion about your life style, work, affective state, family history, regarding any organic illness. Further on this basis a management plan would be made which will include investigations, therapeutic interventions in the form of medications and psychological interventions for complete recovery. Hence I would suggest you to consult me in private, so that your problems could be assessed in details, and a further plan action can be made.

Dear , I can understand your problem. Psychiatric problems are always treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy and counseling. You are taking medicines but not supplementing it with psychotherapy and counseling. In fact, psychotherapy and counseling will help you to quit the medicine and continue without medicines. Please contact me with every detail and I will help you. Take care.
