Hi doctor. I have some problem in my brain. At midnight I have some unusual dreams. Seeing those dreams my brain starts thinking fast about my past. Though I dont remember about my past but my brain continues to do so. I just wanted to consult you about my problem. Everyone says its just a night mare but I think you will surely be able to help me.

It happens in case of some traumatic experiences in past. Our conscious brain does not want to recall that unfortunate event/experience but our subconscious mind has that remembrance. That is why although we claim to forget it comes in dream. Forgetting painful memories is a kind of defense mechanism of brain to reduce the stress. Try to avoid thinking about it and about the past. Have healthy meal at time, have regular exercise, meditation, yoga etc. Listen some relaxing music at evening, have adequate rest and recreation. At evening have early and light dinner, wear comfortable loose clothing and have a comfortable, mosquito free bed in a comfortable environment. Then you will have sound sleep and less dreams.

Sir I am taking alcohol from last 10 yrs, but in these 3-4 years I am taking daily with high volume 180-360 Ml quantity daily basis. Now I am addicted please suggest what I have to do? How can I get back to alcohol free days.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

My wife is having multiple personality disorder, she turns very dangerous if she don't take pills, it's hard to live with her, please guide me well.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The multiple personality can create multiple problems. It is a very complex disease and without knowing much of her background, I suppose you might be her only hope and solace. Since you are married to her and for several years perhaps too, you are the only person who has reached this level of intimacy with her. That could be the nemesis too but if you undertook to see her through her worst phase, then you could have a reasonable life with her. One thing is very clear and it seems like you have understood that too, is her strict adherence to the medical prescriptions. That is mandatory and that is important for you to personally monitor; and periodically take her for psychiatric reviews. Apart from that she needs intense psychotherapy with a dedicated professional competent in dealing with this condition. There will be a lot of follow-up from this therapy and again I see you taking an active role. If her parents or siblings are around or can come and relieve you periodically, that will give you welcome breaks that will be tremendously good to recharge yourself. The professional is sure to put her on a regimen of exercise, both physical and neurological, a tight time-schedule filled with important and interesting activities, and a socializing program. Consider this a lifetime task and you must dedicate yourself to it completely, if you want to spend a reasonable time with her for the rest of your lives.

I am 19 years old I am suffering with lack of concentration how to over come that problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 are 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.

This is a very serious condition but can be treated with both counseling and medication. The therapy will need to be very intense and long term. The medical consultation may be intermittent but the one-to-one counseling will be very demanding on both the professional and the counselee and must be pursued until the end. Apart from this there has to be adequate family investment of time, patience, money, and energy; and all of this must be done with utmost love. The MPD identifies with several personalities, and each one not much aware of the other. There is however one over-ruling personality and if that is brought into focus and if that personality can trust or develop the trust with the therapist your cousin can work out a way of accepting and working with the other personalities for favorable outcomes. Believe me though this is really quite tedious and sapping. Both the family and the therapist must be quite dedicated till the end. There may be a lot of relapses but that is to be expected but no one is to give up because every inch of progress has to be somehow retained and preserved like gold. If there is any doubt regarding the family?s commitment, then you may have to put her in a rehabilitation center that has experience working with MPDs.

My wife aged 47 years is suffering from depression (i doubt) need counselling please help.
She must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that she meets with a doctor she must do so and cooperate to her utmost. Please visit these professionals along with her parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because she could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest she does the opposite of what this depression makes her feel like doing (actually, not doing): she will need to fight this condition and you will need to give her a lot of support. She must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer herself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose herself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in her life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If she did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate her sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use her own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, she needs to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get her out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate her, all the hard word must come from her, and her cooperation with that person is very critical for her success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what she has. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please get her to cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for further advice. Take care.

Trust is precarious issue between married people. It is better to have clear talk and go through each others daily schedules instead of sitting around getting paranoid. Please note. Removing groin hair can be comfortable especially when one is travelling.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. 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 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. Take care.

I am 26 yrs old and I have a habit of smoking. I want to quit it completely. Please suggest any medicine or any other way to do so.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-addiction medications and de addiction treatment. Medicines like bupropion and verinicline also help in treating addiction of smoking. One can get the prescription of the same from a qualified psychiatrist.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

A positive phonatory gap means the vocal folds fail to close during phonation. A phonatory gap may be seen in patients who have muscle tension dysphonia, vocal fold paresis or paralysis, loss of tissue, or vocal fold flaccidity. Treatment aims to rectify the cause.
