If you are already on medication for anxiety, depression, or blood pressure, there is risk of interaction between that and ginseng. Do not self medicate or take any over the counter medication/ health supplements without the advice of your doctor. Adverse side effects can occur.

Dear doctor

You need to examine if your work is too stressful for various reasons. It is the one place you will be spending the greatest part of your awake life, more than even with your family! This being the case any stress there can take a severe toll: the stress in the work is mostly related to relationships. We are always into relationships and you need to find a very amicable way to interact with people. If it is people related, you will need to examine whether you are the cause or others the cause. If it has to do with workload, then you will need to discuss that with your colleagues first and if they think you are justified, then you will have to take it to the immediate boss. If it is injustice in the work spot, you will need to discuss it with the HR department. If you feel that you are doing more than you can manage or are qualified for, again you can consult the HR department. If you are emotionally distraught, then there may be some work for you to do with a counselor. This is where stress is mostly felt. When you do not express feelings you will land up with stress. Check what feelings you are not dealing with and then tackle that to find relief which is a permanent solution. To resolve it you need to deal with the unexpressed feelings which may have become a habit from childhood. Meet with a counselor and that person will help you process your feelings and find ways to express them once and for all and give you permanent relief. Your weight loss and dependence on medication will reduce drastically if you go for counseling also.

How to increase our grasping power of our brain which we help in our study as well as can keep us happy in our life and keep a big smile on our face and never be give us false thinking?

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Hi Librate user Very good question. Grasping power depends upon practice and concentration. If you keep a focused mind only one thing at a time, that you would like to achieve, then your grasping power will definitely increase. Make a short notes of your studies, and try to recall them, and for your happiness try to make a short list of the simple things that give you pleasure, and keep them in front of your consciousness and make sure you engage with them at least few times in a week. Whatever movements inspires you do it, observe it and feel the happiness, its brings for you. Live in the moment is the key of individuals happiness, you can't change the past, no control of the future so try to live in the moment and enjoy what's in front of you right here, right now. Thanks.

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. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

A heart-break or rejection in a relationship is processed by our brain in the same way as physical pain. So the pain you are feeling is very natural and very normal. Your mind will take time to come out of it. Like any other wound, emotional wounds also take time to heal. On an average, a time of 6 months is required for the grief to reduce. Of course you can make this process faster or slower. If you want to come out of this, then first thing you need to realize is that you need your love and attention right now. You have to treat yourself as the most valuable person in the world. You need to figure out ways to please and pamper yourself, respect yourself and love yourself. Giving a small treat like a new shirt or a hairstyle will boost your self-esteem. Meeting old friends and new people will work wonders. On the other hand, if you want to delay this process then you will remain in the self- pity mode. You will keep thinking that you are a victim and you are the most deprived person in the world. You will keep blaming someone or something for your misery. You will keep calling yourself a failure. The fact is, most relationships in your age'fail' people don't fail. You are not the only one. Lastly and most importantly, seek professional help because you have constant low mood, suicidal thoughts, lack of sleep, sadness, etc. Please go to a psychiatrist as soon as possible. This could be depression. It will not let you come out of this phase unless you take treatment.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, I think the very first thing you need to do is to speak to your lawyer. Talk about it with your friends and relatives who can actually speak with your kids and make them understand that it is their father's property and they do not have any right on it and teach them their responsibilities towards parents. You are already a strong person by doing all which you have mentioned. You just need to trust yourself and stop worrying. No body can snatch what you own. If it still threatening you can speak to a lawyer and take some NGO's, Society or Police's help. Thank

Hello- follow these rules, it will surely help you- 1) think before you speak. In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. 2) once you're calm, express your anger. 3) get some exercise. 4) take a timeout. 5) identify possible solutions.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Smoking cigarettes can cause cancer and many other respiratory problems and physical and mental health problems in the long run. Your boy friend must be relatively new to smoking. Therefore you can easily motivate him to quit smoking. I also suggest online deaddiction counselling for him. Take care.

If you are liking to keep to yourself. Keep to yourself. Do not resist or struggle to be otherwise. This too will pass. You should keep in mind that he/she will always remain with you in your memory. You can always recall him, when you want. All the best.

Hello, There are few food 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 addicted to smoke less tobacco, day by day addiction is going to be more, I want to quit tobacco but I can't, I tried many times but I can not quit. Can you please help me? I am taking 10-15 times in a day.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are smoking way too much at your age. Quitting will seem difficult but it is in the repeated attempts at giving it up that you will eventually succeed. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
