Hello! I am 22 years old male and my memory is becoming weak. Would plss suggest me the ways so that I can improve my memory power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You may be under stress fro some reason and you will need to meet with a counselor to sort that out. Do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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 junk food.

Hi my problem is that i am in a love affair from last 8 year. It was pretty good for first 2 years den afterwards she got admission in MCA and got spoiled like her friends. She started speaking lies every now and then and started hiding many things. Last year I came to know that she was talking to a friend of her on regular basis that too after my instruction to not to talk to him since he was taking too much interest in her. But 1 day she forgot her phone in my car where I read that they are still in contact. On my confrontation she told me that she was only helping him due to some problem in his home. Although I couldn't find any message which anything wrong. But since then I have become very insecure because she use to take my guidance in her every decision then how come she took such a big decision without my consent and that too after my restriction to talk to him.Although she says she has never ever thought of any other person in her life. I am getting very insecure now and whenever she talks about her collegue n friends I start doubting. This insecurity is affecting me like hell and bring my morale down quite frequently. Although we love each other but we fight a lot. I am not even able to leave her as the relationship is so old and she love me a lot. But I am scared if later I came to know that she even had a fling then I wont be able to control myself. I don't know what to do as neither I am able to leave her nor accept her totally. Moreover after that incidence I am finding myself unable to trust her and thats why not able to love her or trust her completely. How can I know the truth behind this. I tried many things but dont have any proof. I beg you please help me out of this condition.

Dear , you are already 30. You have crossed your marriage age. Why don't you get married? what is stopping you? the more you delay in the marriage, the more you will get confused. That is because, the more you know that girl before marriage, the more you will not like her, and you will feel depressed. As of now, I suggest you should not further proceed with the present affair. Because you already have many doubts in your mind. True love do not carry doubts and suspicion. Love carries only love and affection. Because you are suspicious, you are actually possessive. Possession upto one extent is alright. Here you are more possessive. If you are sure, after marriage, you will be able to 100% control your suspicion and possessiveness, you may go forward with the marriage, and that too as soon as possible. Otherwise look for another alliance. Don't take my advise lightly, because married life is more trouble than love life. Take care.

How I can improve my brain memory because it is very poor. I forget many thing during examination which is prepared by me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I lost somebody very much near to me last year since I was depressed. Please help me.

Psychologist,
I lost somebody very much near to me last year since I was depressed. Please help me.
Hello User, I had read a story. Two persons were walking along towards a village. It was summer time. A large tree came on their way. They lie down below the tree to save themselves from heat. Looking at the tree, one commented that the tree was not bearing any fruit, so was not of no use. Tree listened to them, and replied silently,” I provided you shed. I saved you from heat. And you call me good-for-nothing”. God has created every living being with a purpose behind. You too carry a purpose. H. You are fortunate to have taken birth as a human being. Please thank Him from your heart, for being born as human being. Now, you say that you do not have any friends, and you are very lonely. You feel depressed. Let us analyse the cause of disturbance. I have learnt one line in my life. That is ,” Answer lies in your question”. It means all unsolved items only comes up to the surface from your mind. You remain disturbed within that boundary. Then you look outside for solution. Disturbance inside frames the periphery around it. Hence, your question shows the boundary. You feel lonely. Such feeling arises when you feel the absence of other. The presence was giving you a lot of pleasure. If that is the reason, then the solution is attachment. May be someone was listening to you, you could share your unhappiness and pleasure. Of course, we all do it in our day to day life. It gives a relaxation when we share our feelings. But, it has a opposite effect ,when the other is not there. In other words, dependency on others bring pleasure and unhappiness. Hence, it is advised to learn to live alone. Aloneness is staying within oneself independently. You are not affected by other’s absence or presence. You are within yourself. And you feel completely filled within all the time. To reach such a state you need to do meditation daily. I will suggest you to get some guided type meditation from net. Do practice daily with them. Those will reduce the disturbance your mind. Follow one only, which you feel more effective. After doing so for someday, you will not look forward the presence of others. You feel so complete within yourself. Best of luck. Keep me informed on your progress.

Sir, my question is a men can do after breakup when he loves her very much. Because I am shocked for this.
what I can say you only is that this is not end of the world.We have to come across many failures in life.Life is very harsh but a true human being is that who make these failures his power and makes history.Make her realise her mistake and this you can do by a pure mind and hard work.Dont have a grudge against her in mind and think that God has some other more important work for you.These failures always teach us and I am sure you must have got a lesson by this breakup.Fix that lesson in your mind and move forward as if nothing had happened.Myself is a homoeopathic doctor and I will recommend you following homoeopathic medicine to take alongwith IGNATIA AMARA 1M ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 3rd day P.L.30 (Dr Reckeweg) Ask the homoeopathic pharmacist to prepare this medicine in 30 number globules and quantity 2 drahm.Start taking 4 tab 3 times daily.

I think I suffer from depression I have all d symptoms I need to know wat can help me to feel better.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear lybrate-user, if this is her personality trait and she is not having any trouble with such a personality trait, it is better to leave her alone. Introversion is a blessing. You may talk to her regarding this and motivate her. Take care.

If she does not love you, then there is no use wasting time and energy on her. A relationship has to be two way. You have to consider a someone who did not exist and move on. The fact is that you need to love someone who appreciates you and wants to love you back in return. Since this girl does not love you, there is no point pining for her. This does not make her a bad girl: she just does not fancy you or whatever. You cannot force her to love you. So just carry on with life. You can talk about your feelings to someone but do not talk ill of her. Over a period of time you will get over her and may even kick yourself for having lost yourself in such a girl because there will be many lovely girls you will meet in life and they will all be different. In that midst you will find your true love.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

How to improve memory power and to remember things for long time, medicines to cure memory loss.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

I am in fever and I am fevering from 2 weeks and I want to cure myself fast. Because my exams was on tomorrow.
Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.
