Sir go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's panchakarma therapy. It includes abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles.

My daughter who's age is 13 now. Monthly once she got depressed. For the past two month only we find that. She often says that I am unfit for everything. She told that I cannot lead life. But she is very intelligent and first rank holder in a reputed school. Now a days telling I like to die. I consult a psychiatrist here. He prescribed qutipin 25 mg tablet in nite and fluoxetine 10 mg in morning. Are these tablets good for her remedy? Is there any side effects to my daughter by these tablets? Please advice me.

Quetiapine and fluoxetine are safer psychoactive drugs. But no drug is free from side-effects. Dizziness, headache, constipation and tiredness are some of the common side effects of these two drugs. They are good in treating psychiatric conditions like your daughter's. You are on the right track in treating her by a psychiatrist. But, the causes of the problem may be 1. Biochemical changes (abnormal or subnormal levels of neurotransmitters in the brain). 2. There may be any underlying traumatic incidences which might have affected her mental health. 3. There may be the influence of hormonal surges since 13 is the age of puberty, which may cause mood disorders in some girls. And it resolves its own accord in months or a year. 4. Or a mix of all these thigs. Your psychiatist knows well all these issues. I think, along with medications some psychotherapies/counselling techniques will help a quick recovery.

Dear Lalit.....You should stop smoking immediately. You are just 18 years old....Quitting smoking only may not be sufficient for you.....Take 1 single bulb garlic every morning for at least 1 month....It will help to minimise the bad effects of smoking

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, my first point here is do not panic, it is a very normal experience any young male can encounter in this age. The main reasons for one to have these symptoms may be due to the following reasons: 1) Lack of knowledge about sexuality 2) Excessive self monitoring 3) Gulit about sex 4) Any previous negative sexual experience 5) side effects of usage of alcohol, drugs, 6) Life stressors, excessive anxiety, fear (most common in your age) My advice is be reassured, just do not think about it, have good social interactions and maintain a healthy life style. If your problem even then persist kindly consult a doctor.

Generalised anxiety disorder usually doesn't result form any brain pathology so MRI or CT scans might turn out to be normal, even if you go for them. Management of generalised anxiety includes medications and practising relaxation exercises in cohesion so that relapses are prevented. Also presence of other psychological problems or hormonal disturbances need to be evaluated too. Consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity for treatment. For online management and queries regarding the same you may consult me online with details of treatments done so far. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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.

From past of 5 years I had bad habits of masturbation and finally I quit this giant habit, that's why I lost my memory power, thinking ability What should I do for recover Brain power again. Professionally I am mechanical engineer.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Masturbation has nothing to do with brain power or memory. The guilt around it may have caused enough stress to cause a lot of distraction and therefore there might have been some memory loss.You may be under this stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out if there is any other disturbance and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

I am in depression, I am behaving like life is no more for me, Also I have stopped doing some things which I would love to do in the past. I just want to overcome this situation and just be like a normal person.

MBBS

Dear lybrate-user, Depression is a feeling we get, so we connect to our moods and emotions. Actually, it is related to Serotonin levels in the brain. These levels can go down or up, depending on many factors. Depression has grades. You can grade it by answering questions from a standard tool. If it is above a particular level, medication is required. These medicines bring the levels to normal within 3-4 weeks. They do not cause any addiction. If you are really serious about treatment, pl consult a psychiatrist and also a counselor. The cause-effect relationship can be very well understood by these methods Best wishes.

Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

Dear , relax! I understand how you must be feeling. I understand its difficult to trust in such conditions. But your imagination will definitely will spoil things. Don't feel rejected or dejected or ditched or feeling of being fooled. Sometimes such affairs just happen. These are insignificant events of life. Take charge of your life. And stay happy try to behave normally, meet any counsellor face to face.

May be for that I am forgetting the things immediately after the discussion. When I am trying to focus deeply or want to make interest on in the discussion my head started getting pain. But yea after doing that thing for several times I am ok in that. But my worry is how can I pickup the thing more first or at first time of discussion. Please help me in this. I am not able to compete with my colleagues.

Its nothing unusual it happens with every one, but only difference is that you are giving it more importance and so its causing more problem ,its like that if someone walks on rope without thinking anything else then he may walk on the rope but when that person will think what will happen if I will fall down and its consequences then surely that person will fall. Take healthy food increase fruits intake, egg, dairy products, you can follow my few suggestions it will help you 1.take 6-7 hours sleep everyday. 2.do some exercise like sit in the posture of yogi both hands on stomach then inhale and exhale air forcibly do it for 10 times it will not take more than 10 minutes. It will increase your concentration power. 3.Increase the intake of fruits ,green vegetables, and dairy products in partwise as this will not feel you sleepy. 4.don't take pressure before any conversation think it as a regular routine as much you will give importance to these things you will get nervous. If you need my help you can contact me. Good luck.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.
