My dad's nature appears to be very unnatural for eg: yesterday he had gone out in a wedding and then after coming back home he was confused whether he had come back with his car only or with others car and then he was very stressed that he will be prisoned for the case of robbery of a car. So, is it a serious mental problem. Can you please suggest a solution for this.

Temperament or personalities are just a collection of repeated and learnt behaviours that we practice right from our past. Yes it is logically difficult to change personalities but not practically impossible to control unwanted and harmful behaviours. If your temperament or personality is casing problems that become uncontrollable at your end and you wish to prevent such untoward behaviours you may consider consulting a psychiatrist for evaluation, behaviour therapies and treatment with medications if necessary.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Dear Afnan, 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. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy.Take care.

Dear Lybrate user Recovering from a long-term relationship can be so challenging and painful. Chances are, this person was not only someone you loved romantically but also someone you called your best friend. He or she was the person you went to for pretty much anything and everything and now all of that has to change. Whether you were ready for it or not you have been thrust into a new phase of your life and when you look back in five years it will be nice to know you handled yourself with dignity and respect. Accept the truth and do yourself a favor and stop following your ex on social media. Stop discussing about her with your friends. Hangout with your friends. Do something and learn something. Let your mind occupied most of the time either with something productive or something you like doing like your hobbies. Your job is being affected and this is a matter of concern. Give yourself some time but also do not let your breakup ruin your life and career. If you waste your time thinking about her then you will regret in the future. Whenever you are haunted by her feelings just think about your future (how will it be like in the future you keep doing this and do not do anything productive) and visualize it and soon you will find yourself filled with motivation and energy to move on and concentrate properly. Make new friends. Get 7-8 hours of sleep and that too a sound sleep on time. Eat healthy food and keep yourself physically healthy. Go for a walk or do exercise. Do yoga or meditation or relaxation exercises. If it still does not work and you are not able to do all this on your own then you will need help. You can contact me for more information and also for a free consultation.

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. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Replace smoking with higher taste like" transcendental meditation. When you get higher taste, the lower taste of intoxicants like nicotine would no longer be able to distract you.

There are active people and there are proactive people. Who is more liable to blood pressure? Is blood pressure related to how we feel? Is blood pressure related to suppression of your desires and hence to anger within and hence your mental health? We keep giving medicines to the physiological system and never look into the cause of problem. Doctor, please advise as to synchronize psychological and physiological processes within our body system? B.

Hi blood pressure is caused by obstruction of arteries by deposition of fat in the side walls. Because of this heart has to exert more pressure to circulate the blood. Take your medicines prescribed by your doctor for bp. Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops to keep your mind calm. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of agrimony + 3 drops of water violet + 3 drops of mimulus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose).

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40

Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases.

31st May is ?World No Tobacco Day?
Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40.

However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 10% of all cardiac deaths.

My depression has been cured with lithium oratate supplement that I ordered from amazon. I do not feel any sideeffect. I heard lithium carbonate has sideeffects and it should be prescribed whereas lithium oratate has no such side effect. I want to ask whether lithium oratate is good to take in long run?

Dear Sahil, i do not have any experience of prescribing lithium oratate. You have to take it in the long run only, for few specific diagnostic disorders. In those disorders, the benefit outweighs the risk of side effect. Just because it is safer than lithium carbonate should not be the reason for taking it in long run.

You should both go to a sexologist and talk about your problem. It is very likely that she is gone off of sex because of the medication and also because of menopause. It is however possible to get her interested again if you approached her reasonably by talking about your need. You can also start with gentle that is non-sexual and gradually make it more physical and touch only non-sexual areas. As she gets comfortable you can touch her erogenous zones and gently coax her into more of that kind of contact. If she is amenable she may allow more of it. If you do it right and excite her, she may change her attitude. If she is experiencing genital dryness, as is expected, she may not be favorable. In that case a visit to her gynecologist is advised for a topical application.

Hello lybrate-user, since you have done the necessary checkup, and things sound normal as of now, then what you can do is: (1) started morning walks (2) start exercising (3) balanced diet (4) lots of water. For the psychological part you can visit a counsellor. Like if there is something which is disturbing you.

My advice to you will be to not to focus or analyse too much on your feeling s all the time. That is the trap bipolar & depression people fall into. Everyone has ups & downs in emotions every single day. Do not consider yourself as a bipolar patient. Set of emotional state oe repeated typed of thoughts vaguelyare grouped as a particular problemproblem for therapeutic convince. But if you are focused on it, trying hard to get over it, you may find yourself in a perpetuating conflict. Let life flow. As it has, and as it has to.
