Dear, loneliness, sadness, anger and aggression are emotions. You could be disappointed or stressed. You must know what is emotional intelligence and how important emotional intelligence. Emotional quotient measures a person emotional management ability and total emotional intelligence. I suggest you to take an eq test. Controlling emotions are not advised. But if you know how to stop being emotional, your problem is solved. We have rational emotive therapy (ret) to clear your problems. Contact me for more. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I am given medicines for schizophrenia though I feel I do not belong to that category. What to do, they are also increasing the dosage of Amisulpride to check the maximum limit of 400 mg *twice a day. How can I get rid of the doctor's treatment for a non-entity and be free from Medicines?

Hi lybrate-user, it's the doctor who decides which category you belong to, they know it better. So if he has prescribed medicines for you, you should take it first and when it's under control you can go for therapy sessions.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of your mind is to think. If you are unable to control your thoughts, mind will wander into negative territories. Creative thinking, positive attitude, exercise, entertainment, good sleep etc will keep you creative and positive. I suggest online personality development counselling. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

5 Ayurvedic Tips To Improve Memory

5 Ayurvedic Tips To Improve Memory

If you're suffering from weak memory or memory loss, Ayurveda might be able to solve your problems. Ayurveda uses natural remedies to cure many diseases, and even though forgetting where you put your glasses or cell phones may not sound discrete enough, it may be early signs of dementia. Before it escalates to that level, here are 5 foods that you may try to curb it as the first signs appear.

  1. Almonds are the most effective food items to increase your brain power and cure amnesia. They are a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants that hike up your mental prowess. It is best to have them early in the morning, grinded and mixed with milk and sugar (or a healthier supplement being honey), or otherwise, after being soaked overnight in water.
  2. Ayurvedic herbs, like rosemary, brahmi, ashwagandha, shankhapushpi, licorice plant, etc., are all known to have medicinal properties that improve your brain power. Regulated incorporation of these herbs in your diet in requisite amount relaxes your mind, and thereby improves its functioning capacity.
  3. Indian Gooseberry or amla, is rich in Vitamin C, as well as antioxidants, which helps boost immunity, but other than that, amla is also known to have properties to strengthen your nervous system. It is one of the best remedies for managing Alzheimer's disease. It can be consumed raw or dried, and at times along with white sesame seeds.
  4. Fish oil is an excellent way to enhance your memory, especially if you are a non-vegetarian. It contains rich quantities of Omega-3 fatty acids, which help rejuvenate your brain cells. But if you are a vegetarian or vegan, fish oil or even fishes like salmon, might not be best suited to your dietary preference, in which case it may be more helpful to consume Omega-3 supplements which are readily available in the market, or even fenugreek seeds.
  5. Cinnamon helps in revitalizing your mental health, when consumed, or even when smelled. Add a pinch of cinnamon to your food, or mix a teaspoon with honey, and it will work wonders for your mental health.

Dear lybrate-user, the given tilted eye looking may not be a symptom at all in case of the social phobia. But as you got 63 percentile marks in your social phobia test, we can address it as social phobia. Social phobia is fear to be in public situations, feeling anxious or nervous to speak to strangers, entering into a crowd etc. If you have all these symptoms, I suggest you to consult a psychologist for psychotherapy treatment. Take care.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder - 6 Ways You Can Deal with Kids Suffering from it

D.P.M, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Oppositional Defiant Disorder - 6 Ways You Can Deal with Kids Suffering from it

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) is a disorder found in young children. Some common traits of a kid suffering from ODD include disobedient behavior, vindictiveness, manipulation, anger issues and irritability. These kids are known to have a negative mindset and are very difficult to get along with.

Here is a list of ways to deal with a kid suffering from ODD

  1. Communicate you expectations clearly: Kids suffering from this disorder feels an irresistible urge to control the environment they are residing in. It helps when you lay down simple, but mandatory house rules such as not raising the voice, being kind to others, refraining from hurting family and friends etc. This will not only keep their behavior in check, but will help them to make better choices.
  2. Be calm: Make sure you don’t give your kids any room to argue. Remind them that house rules apply for everyone. A back-and-forth argument will give your kids to impose his will on you. Explain in short the parental requirement that is expected. While giving instructions make sure you maintain a calm and collective dialect. Scolding or arguing your kid will do more harm than good.
  3. Use empathy: Instead of imposing parental will, it is best to be empathetic towards your defiant kid. For instance despite your repeated warnings, if your kid continues to watch TV or hook to the play station, remind them why it is important to go to bed early. Explain to them that you understand his feeling of having to leave the day for the night, but also tell them how his favorite activities can be continued the next day.
  4. Reward scheme: Kids with ODD reacts wonderfully to a reward system. For instance, if he successfully sticks to the rules laid in the house or behaves the way he is expected, he should be rewarded for the job well done. This reward scheme should be declared well in advance. As a parent, your job is to continuously remind him about the reward if he manages to do a job well. This incentive scheme will force your kid to be obedient.
  5. Don’t use false threats: Be very precise with your kid about the instruction you want them to follow. If you want him to brush his teeth before going to sleep, make it very clear to him what would be the consequences if the instruction is not followed. Do not use empty threats. As a parent, if you fail to keep your end of the bargain, your kid will not value your word anymore.
  6. Create a routine: A routine works well with kids suffering from ODD disorder. Every task should be time bound with more than one choice. For instance, between 5 PM to 7 PM allow them to do either of the two things like playing outdoor games or spending time with the play station. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

I am a 24 year old, work for a multinational consulting firm. My father has been suffering from paranoid schizophrenia from past 20 years. I consider myself to be an introvert and had a rough time growing up. Should I be concerned about my overall mental health?

Dear , hereditary schizophrenia transfer is less than 5%. Over and above it happens never to immediate off spring. You don't have to worry. You should also not worry about your introversion. Rather you should be proud of it. Because almost all famous people, scientists etc were introverts. Introversion is good in many aspects. I suggest you to consult me online for a psychological counseling. Take care.

You need to consult a psychiatrist. You seem to have classical anxiety symptoms. Anxiety is due to altered serotonergic system in the brain, and can very well treated with medications, All the best.

I feel very depressed after a failure in my academics. So please suggest me some solution.
Feeling depressed for failure in academics at your age seems very less likely. It could be that you are not satisfied with your life achievements and that is making you feel low, sad and depressed, if i am not wrong. Depression can occur to anyone at any moment in life. It is treatable. You might need a short medicine prescription to get over your feelings of depression with counseling. Contact me personally if possible

Hello lybrate-user. Depression has become a very common problem in teenage these days. You need to ascertain the cause of your low mood and energy and then find a solution for that. It seems easy to escape the situation but facing it is actually the solution. Other than this I would suggest you to involve yourself in something of your interest.

A relationship which did not work out as per your expectations is likely to cause pain and sadness. Please try to analyse what caused this break up. What was your contribution to it? was it an impulsive decision or a well thought one? who decided to call it off, you both or you/he alone? since you have decided to part ways, something must have really bothered you about the relationship. How you could have handled it better? do you want to patch up? if you want to patch up and if similar situation arises again in future, will you be able to take it? please answer these questions for yourself and decide what you want to do about your future. Also think about how important this relationship is/was for you? give yourself some time to come out of it. Try to be in the company of family and friends who love and respect you. Try to develop a hobby. Respect and love yourself. Failures and disappointments are part of life. Take a firm and rational decision and move ahead.
