I am fifty years old active working women. Before I can sing a song nicely. But past one year, I am not able to speak also. My voice is low and it is not clear now. What is the solution for it. I am always having curd. Do not ask me to avoid curd.

Hello, if you are saying you cannot sing properly, that would still be okay, but if you are saying you cannot speak also properly. Then it's high time you should visit an ent specialist. Once after check up is done if there is no problem. Then take up your singing issue. Till then first take care of your voice.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice of you to notice and try to take steps to resolve this issue. Try and take an objective view of events, situations and people. As you are in business take some time out to figure out how best to serve your customers. Develop objectively plans for yourself and your business. If you do face some minor short comings handle them in a open manner keeping your long term interest in mind. The moment you do feel anger take a deep breath or two and again re look at the situation. It may be that you may find more effective way to handle the situation. I do wish you all the best. With regards,

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Ocd treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety and ocd compulsive behavior yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Doctor I have lot of problems, I thing it is due to over thinking. 1. When a person if it my teacher or neighbor look sharply on me I get frightened. 2. I have a tendency to overthink about my future. 3. When I prepared some question to ask a dignitary person with proper rehearsal on my'mind', the question I asking will be meaningless or other type 4. When ever I tell something to express my strong argument to a person who have a more age than me or to protest, suddenly I scan my thought to tell, then I think about my future of my words and its after effect. So I supposed to be silent. #All these problems are are started when I entered to a new school which is an aided school. I think these are problems on me are raised due to my strong protest against this school *it is may due to (may be) I thought that I will be humiliated soon &I will get punishment with out doing any bad things.(most important thought) Generally I behave mildly in the class and I always try to stay away from my friends.

Iam suffering from anxiety and panic attack. E. Agoraphobia kindly suggest me what to do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Iam suffering from anxiety and panic attack. E. Agoraphobia kindly suggest me what to do.
Hi Agoraphobia treatment usually includes both psychotherapy and medication. It may take some time, but treatment can help you get better. Psychotherapy Also known as talk therapy or psychological counseling, psychotherapy involves working with a therapist to reduce your anxiety symptoms. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most effective forms of psychotherapy for anxiety disorders, including agoraphobia. Generally a short-term treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on teaching you specific skills to gradually return to the activities you've avoided because of anxiety. Through this process, your symptoms improve as you build upon your initial success. You can learn: That your fears are unlikely to come true That your anxiety gradually decreases if you remain in public and you can manage those symptoms until they do What factors may trigger a panic attack or panic-like symptoms and what makes them worse How to cope with these symptoms How to change unwanted or unhealthy behaviors through desensitization, also called exposure therapy, to safely face the places and situations that cause fear and anxiety. You can also take these steps to cope and care for yourself when you have agoraphobia: Stick to your treatment plan. Take medications as directed. Keep therapy appointments. Consistency can make a big difference, especially when it comes to taking your medication. Try not to avoid feared situations. It's hard to go to places or be in situations that make you uncomfortable or that bring on symptoms of anxiety. But practicing going to more and more places can make them less frightening and anxiety provoking. Family, friends and your therapist can help you work on this. Learn calming skills. Working with your health care professional, you can learn how to calm and soothe yourself. You can practice these skills on your own, especially at the first hint of anxiety. Practice relaxation techniques. Meditation, yoga and imagery are simple relaxation techniques that may help — and you can do them in the comfort of your own home. Practice these techniques when you aren't anxious or worried, and then put them into action during stressful situations. Avoid alcohol and illegal drugs. These substances can worsen your panic or anxiety symptoms. Take care of yourself. Get enough sleep, be physically active every day, and eat a healthy diet, including lots of vegetables and fruits. Consult me for any query.

Sir I have low memory power. Some time I forgot something. So how to solve this problem.

PGDPC
Psychologist, Pune
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice of you to write about your issue, following are some ways in which you can enhance your memory. Live your life moment by moment and pay attention to all that is happening to you. If you are studying something focus your mind on it. You will remember something you learned if you focus on it adequately. In case there is noise or disturbance around go to a quite place and continue your studies. Try to involve more than one sense in the moment information like color, texture, smell etc. Write down the information learnt or read out loud what you want to remember. Relate the information learnt to something you already know. Form simple co relations in the mind connecting the information learnt to a subject, color, fruit etc. Rehearse the information learnt to someone else in your own words. Answer any questions on the subject when asked by others. Make a daily re view of all the information learnt in brief (short point form) daily before sleep. Above all relax and enjoy each moment and all that is happening to you. All the best.

I used to smoke 12-13 cigarettes everyday. So what is the damage I am getting can you tell me about that?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are too many harmful effects because of smoking. But here are a few to ruminate up on with the intention of either making you stop or to never start again. It has more than 4000 chemical substances most of which are harmful. It affects your stamina, breathing, forms skin wrinkles. Bad for your heart, bad for bad cholesterol, it can lead to strokes, dental problems, eye problems, cancer, brain cell death, vascular problems, throat problems, voice difficulties, etc. The list is quite endless. It is so bad that there is an international battle to dissuade smoking. Each cigarette you smoke has an effect on your erectile capacity: the nicotine in the cigarette is a vasoconstrictor i. E. It narrows the blood vessels to constrict the blood flow. The erection of the penis is caused by an extra flow of blood to the penis along with a shut down valve that facilitates its engorgement. This action will be compromised. Your bp rises with every cigarette you smoke. But to me the biggest danger is that, in time, dependence and tolerance will develop so that you will want more cigarettes in order to have the same effect as when you started smoking with only one or two. Now, the bluff that we all went through when we were teens was this belief (really a denial) that, if we want, we can stop at any time we choose. That unfortunately does not work: it is a deceptive bluff.

Yes there is no harm in taking ashwagandha and brahmi. You should start meditation and relaxation exercises daily in the morning to avoid anxiety. Eat satwik food and avoid spicy oily and fried food items. Music therapy is also a good option.

I am facing memory problems from 3 years. It has been enhancing since then. I'm also having problems when I speak, type. I forget the words which are needed at that time. Now I can't even remember what happened last 3 hours ago. My age is 18 years. Do I have dementia or nutrition problem or what? Which medical test I should prefer to know what's causing these problems.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need not panic and seek any medical help but it would do you good to talk to a counselor and see what can be discovered about your past that seems to affect your present from 3 years ago. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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. 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 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.

It's a good thing that you recognize that it's a problem and are willing to ask for help. First step done. Second step is starting treatment. Alcohol dependence is a brain-disease. Due to regular intake of this chemical, certain areas in your brain change. This leads mainly to tolerance (needing more and more alcohol), withdrawal (having problems like insomnia, tremors or craving on leaviqng alcohol) and craving. To make your brain come to a normal state, you need medicines. First phase would be detoxification. Here your withdrawal symptoms will be treated. After 2-3 weeks, rehab phase will start. Here you will need therapy to reduce craving, taking care of other problems, changing your lifestyle, etc. You need to be away from alcohol for 6-12 months at least to let your brain heal. Visit a qualified psychiatrist today and start your journey towards a healthier life. All the best.
