1) use natural oils such as coconut, almond etc. To massage gently the scalp for countering hair fall. 2) have more proteins and trace minerals in diet. 3) start taking ayurvedic hair nutrition supplement. 4) keep stress away & take proper 8 hr calm sleep 5) get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated. 6) start 2 spoon cow ghee with milk - empty stomach; will provide you essential nutrition. 7) use soft water to wash your hairs.(alternate day is limit) 8) do regular exercise, yoga, meditation. 9) keep your body cool & calm to avoid hairfall.

Dear lybrate-user. You are talking about stress due to education. Many students travel long distance to study daily. Everyone will be tired. Naturally the food habit has to be modified so as to help in overcoming tiredness. Whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals etc help a lot. Protein supplements are excellent. Take care.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

There are no health benefits of smoking. Smoking causes lung and oral cancer as well as interstitial lung disease. It affects peripheral blood vessels adversely and can cause respiratory and circulatory issues. It is advisable to quit immediately. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction. With the right medication and counseling it is likely that you will be able to quit smoking successfully.

I'm a 17 year old boy and I'm really scared because 2 years ago when I was in my 10th grade, one of my female teachers tried to take advantage of me and since I was just a kid back then and was curious about such stuff, I just flowed with the situation and we had sex. In 10th grade which is a crucial year for me, she tried to do it multiple times. The other day she took me to an empty room and opened up my pants to see my penis and she was like" oh my my, you've grown your penis so big" and I just wanted to get out of there but then she started blackmailing me, she said" I have a videotape of you and me having sex and I will show it to your parents if you don't obey me and I will also request the principal to suspend you" and I got really scared and was standing there helpless. Then she sucked me off and she didn't do it just once, she did it thrice in a row and my penis was paining so much. However, some of the teachers found out about her activities and got her jailed but I'm still in a trauma. Do you think you can help me out?

Yes lybrate-user you can be helped. Seek counseling from a psychologist. We need to remove this fear from your mind which is there post the trauma it's natural to happen but it should be worked on otherwise it will hamper the way you think in general about females you are young and have your future infront of you so you should be able to get out of quickly.

Due to severe chronic anxiety, my weight is reduced a lot. My bmi is 17.3 so obviously I'm underweight. Is it harmful for health. Can it cause heart problem and cancer? If you tell me definitely I will get rid of it. Unnecessarily my mind forces me to reduce my weight still for prevention of heart attack by anxiety and stress and confusion since hearing the news that my Friend's father died of heart attack a few weeks ago. And I follow like a fool what my mind says. Please tell me the details in a clear manner. Is chronic anxiety harmful for health?

Dear You seem to be having disease phobia in addition to chronic anxiety. You need talk therapy in addition to sertraline and clonazepam. You friend's father had other factors causing heart attack, like age, may be smoking, diabetes or blood pressure or lack of exercise or family history of heart attacks. I don't know whether you have any of them except chronic anxiety Cutting down on eating and loss of weight is not the only method to prevent heart attack. You need healthy food and a BMI of at least 23-24. Please come online for audio or video consultation.

My partner is over possessive. He does not like me talking to anyone. I cannot have male friends. If I miss his phone calls he starts shouting and crosses all limits of decency gets into verbal abuse. Please suggest what can be done to cure this and how.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

This is not sounding like a good relationship, and your partner’s insecurity is going to be a problem, if you have not given him any cause. You must both go for relationship counseling and work out the insecurity. If he feels inferior to you for whatever reasons, then he could identify them and work on them to separate some fact from fiction too. If you on the other hand behave in a way to induce the insecurity because of your ways, perhaps you are more extroversive and jovial and free with boys etc, then these must be curtailed and sorted out for the good of the relationship. If his insecurity is unfounded then there may be a serious problem and if he does not work on it you may have to take a call. Abuse and lack of respect are not good signs of a relationship that is not yet in marriage. I shudder to think of what can transpire, later. So have a good talk to him and have him and you seek professional help before it gets worse and you are too far into the relationship to back out!

I am not able to control my smoking. have tried many medicines bt couldnt get rid of it. What should I do now?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Dear , the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please provide me with more information and post a private question. I will help you with this. Take care.

Hi, It seems like anixety disorder. You need to consult a psychiatrist for proper medication. There are many good psychiatrists in mumbai. Also, It's time to get into the relaxation technique. Remember, you need to commit to it for it to work, and you can't expect huge changes right away. It takes some time for these to become natural, and you need to do it every day so that it starts to become part of your lifestyle, not just something you're doing in a panic. Its a must along with medication Close Your Eyes Start by breathing calmly. Breathe in slow and deep with your eyes closed, using your entire diaphragm. You want to fill your stomach first and your chest second, and you want to breath slowly both in and out. At the peak of your breath (when you have filled up your lungs), hold for a few seconds before you exhale. Breathe in through your nose and breathe out through pursed lips, almost like you're whistling. It's a good idea to practice this type of breathing for a while to get used to it before moving onward. Once you feel your breathing is under control, move forward. Count Backwards Slowly count backwards from five to one. You can do this in your mind, or you can do this out loud. Start over every time you reach one. Remember, slow, measured breathing is important. If you count slowly, you'll be able to breathe at a better pace. Repeat this until you feel your mind focus less on your stressful thoughts. Focus on Your Body Try to concentrate on the way your body feels. Notice the areas of your body that are tense and relax them. You should feel yourself slumping in your chair. You should feel your muscles let go of your legs. Every muscle in your body should be let go, almost as if your entire body has gone limp and boneless and is now just a puddle of skin. If it helps, try to imagine yourself feeling heavy, warm, and tingly. You want yourself to feel heavy, as though your tense muscles are no longer holding you up. Remember to also relax your face and eyes. You may even want to relax your jaw. It's okay if it opens slightly. Turn Off Each Muscle The best way to do the above step is to turn off each muscle one at a time. Start with your right foot. Relax it by imagining it feeling heavy and weak. Then move to your left foot. Then your right leg. Then your left leg. Keep moving your way up until you've reached your face. Then go through it one more round, and make sure that each and every muscle feels turned off. Start Visualizing Your next step is to try to mentally transport yourself somewhere truly relaxing. Remember, your eyes should be closed throughout this whole process. Visualize yourself on a relaxing beach, or a pretty park. Try to imagine this place with all of your senses. Focus on the details. What does each flower smell like? What noises are you hearing? Envelop yourself in this location. Don't forget to continue your slow and measured breathing. Wipe Negative Thoughts Away When you do have a negative thought or some type of stressor enter into your imagination, visualize it turning into some type of object, and then have some relaxing thing take it away. For example, a stressful boss could be lifted up and taken away by a dove until it's gone. Then go back to imagining all of the relaxing world around you. Start Positive Affirmations Now that you're in a relaxing place, start giving yourself positive affirmations or suggestions. These are often the part that feels the most awkward to those new to the technique. But the goal is to make sure that you're thinking about and listening to positive things. It distracts your mind from the negative and provides you with something happy that you can focus on. Examples of these positive suggestions include: I feel calm and serene.I am having a good day.I am a great person.I have and will have a pleasant attitude.I will cure my anxiety.I love my body.I love my life.I believe in myself.Continue this process until you can't focus on your negative thoughts anymore. Try to do it as long as possible, and any time stress or a negative thought enters, have it taken away and keep yourself transported into that new environment, breathing slowly. For any query consult me

I am an iit aspirant and I am not able to learn so quickly as my other friends. My learning power getting low day by day. How to improve my mind power? I could not focus on one thing. My mind set changes so quickly. What to do?

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 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.

Tensaril is for hypertension, you have to continue it. Depranil is for reducing anxiety and inducing sleep. It is habit forming. Discontinuing suddenly may cause insomnia and anxiety. You may try to reduce the dose gradually over o period of three months.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
No. But manageable. It can be treated with drugs so that there is symptomatic relief and quality of life can be improved. This disease is a degenerative one, which once starts gradually progresses over a period of time. Taking treatment in adequate dosage will delay severe disability. Associated symptoms like depression and intellectual deterioration can be largely treated.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

You need to be investigated for your turns. Since you are able to recall that the episodes of turns happen, it is less likely to be a genuine fit.
