Dear , the best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.

I can understand your hypersexuality, the girls you have been with, a few may have been hypersexual, few might have really loved and got disappointed. To reduce your obsession about having these multiple affairs at the same time, you need to consult a psychiatrist (preferably male) and get treated, as there are medications which can reduce your obsession on these fronts. All the best.

How far the drug ;"Five Phos", can be useful for a patient undergoing treatment of Schizophrenia with allopathic medicine" Oleanz RT 20? And can it be combined together with Oleanz & its usage shall not add any side effects? Our family is a staunch believers of Homeopathy & from our very childhoods we took only Homeopathic drugs & are happy even today. Kindly revert with your valuable advice.

MPhil (Clinical Psychology), MSc (Psychology)

Follow either one stream of medicine, if you and your family believe homeopathy so much, why take oleanz, take either only homeopathy or allopathy, sometimes drug interaction can lead to total kidney shutdown.

I could not concentrate on my studies properly. So could you please advice me what to do n what is the cause of it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thanks for the query. Since when do have these concentration difficulties in studies? Starting from simple to more complex issues; we usually are able to concentrate better when whatever we are reading/doing is interesting for us & NOT MERELY DRAB WORK! Hence, you can try to make studies interesting by devising punmonics, trying to figure out practical applications of whatever you are studying with help of teachers & elders around. Secondly, try & choose subjects/courses which you are really interested in studying & just do not study for the heck of getting a degree/academic qualification. Lastly, studies have time & again proven that average concentration span of human mind is around 30 minutes. Hence, if you are able to study for 30 minutes; you are actually doing good! You can devise a 30 minutes study-10 minutes break (strictly 10 minutes!) schedule to improve your concentration. Good Luck.

I am 58, in service and therefore have tremendous pressure in my mind what should i do to relax free my mind ?

I am 58, in service and therefore have tremendous pressure in my mind what should i do to relax free my mind ?
When we are stressed it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

26 year man can marry a 35 year old lady. Nothing wrong, love has no boundaries. But make sure it stays till the life time. She will be more affectionate, mature, might be also dominating in the relationship. You have to have kids early as later the woman gives birth to a child more the chances of anomalies. All the best

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Bipolar disorder, with its extreme mood swings from depression to mania, used to be called manic depressive disorder. Bipolar disorder is very serious and can cause risky behavior, even suicidal tendencies, and can be treated with therapy and medication. Please work with your psychiatrist for a cure. Take care.

It is quite obvious that smoking tobacco does not agree with your constitution. It is not that it is good for others but your body reacts like it cannot tolerate the effects of tobacco smoke. The only solution is for you to give it up completely. Anyway, who would want to continue in a habit that gives you so much of discomfort?

Dear , anxiety and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called anxiety disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding anxiety helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which anxiety disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.

Infertility - Its Impact on a Person s Mental Health

Infertility - Its Impact on a Person s Mental Health

Almost every man and woman craves to have a child they can call their own. This makes an inability to procreate one of the most dreaded situations. Infertility can be defined as the inability to conceive a child within 12 months of biologically appropriately timed intercourse. Infertility exacts a huge psychological toll on the person.

Infertility often triggers depression in a person. This may be acute and result from specific events such as the holidays, family celebrations of the news of a someone else having conceived a child or could be cyclic and coincide with phases of their fertility cycle. This depression could lead to problems at work and communication with the spouse.

Infertility can also make a person feel helpless and affect their self esteem. Infertility accompanied by depression can trigger the feeling of having lost control over one’s life and can make people withdraw into themselves.

An infertile person may also often feel guilty and make them blame themselves and their prior actions for the condition. This leads them to question their worthiness of being a good spouse and potential parent. A woman who has suffered from an STD earlier or has undergone an abortion earlier can become obsessed with blaming herself for being infertile. 

This affects their daily lives and ability to work. An infertile person may also feel guilty for having robbed their partner of the chance to become a parent. This can put a strain on their relationship and in many cases lead to a broken marriage.

When they find themselves unable to conceive a child, a couple may try to time their intercourse with ovulation tools, such as an ovulation thermometer etc. and may try different positions, some of which may be fairly uncomfortable. They may also end up having intercourse more often than desired. In order to prevent sperm from leaking out of the vagina, a woman may also find herself lying in an awkward supine position after intercourse. A combination of all these factors makes the act a chore and with time can lead to a loss of libido.

Infertility can also trigger anger against life for having been treated unfairly or towards other parents. This may also be displaced towards their family and friends leading to situations where they feel ostracized and unsupported.

When dealing with infertility, it is important to understand that neither partner is to blame. Infertility is a physiological condition and can be treated in most cases. It is important for both partners to support each other during this process and if need be consult a counselor.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Frequent hand washing can be a sign of OCD. Please take her to a psychiatrist who will assess her in detail and prescribe medication. The best treatment for OCD is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. Also consult a dermatologist for the skin related issues.

You don't mention here that what is the reason of your depression. Any way consult with a psychologist near from you because with some therapies you feel relaxed and get relieved from your depression. You can go for a walk in morning and join any yoga and meditation center which is committed for their work. It will gives you a peaceful mind and a healthy body you can keep your self calm by breathing exercise and give yourself positive affirmations during this exercise like (I AM ENJOYING MY LIFE, I AM A HAPPY PERSON, I AM FULLY RELAXED. Try this and if you any other help you can contact us for telephonic counseling. And for phone for some days say goodbye to your phone and keep it some where and think that you have no need of this phone and you don't want to keep it with you. You can live without this phone. Try this also.
