What is the best way to cure reducing hair line apart from proper sleep & taking care of stress ?
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Receding hairline is a cosmetic problem for many youngsters like you. Proper sleep, stress management and physical exercise can help you maintain the hair line. There are many treatments that you could opt for to stop hairline from receding. Some of the common ones include hair transplant surgeries, use of laser combs, use of medications such as minoxidil, propecia, rogaine and other solutions. Please consult your dermatologist. Take care.

I have always been a shy kid (somewhat unsteady emotionally: they have more control over me than I have over them). I often preferred keep things inside, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. Then a few years back, I failed my higher secondary exams, due to which I went into severe depression. I became even more isolated than before. And eventually, old wounds started to crop up, I ended up feeling even more hopeless (partly because my self esteem was close to zero, and partly because of my over-thinking nature. On top of everything, I faced more complications (a few failed friendships, and some relationships). There were not many with whom I could share my secrets with. And when I did, it made no difference, I felt nothing at all. Nowadays I have started to do a bit of part time work, which has helped me tremendously, mainly in regards with having a higher level of self esteem, being emotionally healthier and not feeling too nervous while surrounded by people who are practically strangers. But after suffering for quite some time, I have some distinct scars with me, which I am listing now: A) My memory power has dwindled down a lot. I was an above average student, now I am the perfect example of" outta sight, outta mind" B) I often misread words, I often mistake one word to be another, whenever I'm in a hurry. C) I often fail to notice that I have missed a word when writing something, if I have said it correctly to myself in my head. D) I feel bipolar-ish at times, I go from emotion to emotion quite quickly, without intending to do so, angry to sad to numb to unnaturally joyful. And also, there are times when I want to be sad (addicted. Etc. So what should I do?

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Your problem is gad. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

If you continue to withdraw, you will easily get into a depression, which is worse to deal with. It does not matter what the college did last year, it really matters that you take your life and future into hands and do something constructive. The college will never be affected by your actions: you are hurting yourself only. So give up on your anger and ego and go and finish your studies. You are at the very fag-end of your academic performance and can easily jeopardize your entire life by your stubbornness. If it is still difficult, meet with a counselor who will probably advise you on the same course of action I recommend. April is just a few months away and will pass by quickly. Go and finish your last year successfully. Anyway you will have to complete your studies and dealying it further will be a lifelong regret for you.

My son is 15years old, can not concentrate on studies, very fickle, bites nails, gets irritated very soon. Please suggest.

It looks like he may have both the spurt in the production of the male sex hormone called testosterone, and there may be something stressing him. Please go with him and visit a counselor because there may be some contributing factors from his childhood that is causing much of the problem. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting his ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time he could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: he will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, he will become sexually active, and he will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact his memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. Here are some things he can do to get back your concentration and memory: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if he goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else he is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that his 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. He needs to check out if he is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if he combines the two modes, he 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 he gets bored, he should study by writing. If he repeats learning at least five to seven times, he 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 he must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that his teacher will be able to guide him with. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect his 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.

Tips to Combat Depression

Tips to Combat Depression

For human beings, the body is considered the temple, one that they strive to keep fit and in shape. In fact, the plethora of ailments, which people complain of suffering from, almost always deal with their physical health. In this over engagement to restore the physical health, the well being of the mental health is never considered. However truth remains that the health of the mind is equally if not more important and must be given its share of priority. With the growing age and times, depression has emerged as a gnawing problem, one that is plaguing individuals indiscriminately and one that must be eradicated as soon as possible. 

Some of the ways to combat this fatal ailment are: 

  1. Exercises: Everyday a bit of exercise not only keeps the body fit and healthy, but also goes a long way in easing and calming the mind. You need not indulge in strenuous exercises, but must make it a conscientious habit to work out a bit daily.
  2. Talk to people: Though depression makes one inexorably quiet and silent, the first thing that is prescribed as a remedial measure is talk to people. Engaging in conversations with people, telling them what exactly is troubling you are proven ways to combat depression.
  3. Meditate: There is no better way to treat mental ailment than meditating.  When you suffer from depression, your body undergoes severe conflict. Meditating not only calms the mind, but also soothes away the worries.
  4. Develop a support system: Depression is almost always followed by an unfathomable sense of loneliness. Talking to others does help, but at the same time try to develop a support system. Find an individual, be it parents, relatives or friends and confide in him or her. Not sharing what you are going through is never a solution and only exacerbates the fatality of the situation.
  5. Change the daily routine: Monotony is never exciting and it is only time, before the humdrum of life gets to you. Changing the daily routine and incorporating something new and exciting go a long way in recuperating you from the mental dullness and fatigue.

How can I quit smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol as soon as possible because sometimes I feel like I should quit smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol.

General Physician, Alappuzha
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, in fact do not start all only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like nicorette and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement.
