What is the cause of headache? What should I do improve our brain power? Can I get medicine to improve my brain?
From fever to migrain and from sinus to meningitis and then to head injury there are more than 100 different causes. Doctor can help in short listing and then pinpointing the actual cause by going into complaints, clinical examination and may be different investigations (if found necessary). I don't think there any scientific medicinal remedies from improvement of a normal brain.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Seems to depressive disorder to me. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

We were happy but serious problem arise just before one year. Actually since past 4 year when one another family made entry between us as her friends up to 3 years of their friendship I ignored many mental distresses from her friends but from last one year this friendship turned into disruption of our relationship and it cured me a very largely mentally, physically and economically. So I took decisions to restrict relationship with her friends since last 6 months. This causes untrust between us husband and wife. She is not cooperating me. She is fighting with me. I tried a lot to make understand my wife with love and trust. I always used to get fight but she always produce cause to fight. Now I'm thinking what things I could not provide them to make my family happy. I did all best. She forget everything even my soul attachment to her my love to her. She kept remember one thing only her friends. Im not so important to her .she is crying ,I'm crying since 6 months but she is not ready to leave them. She is ready to leave me my children and my home. She is warning me to do suicide for these people. This lead me broken heart, untrust,losing everything. Feeling a defeated man. Im feel high great anxiety. Almost crying day night. Im not able to do everyday task normally. My soul is filled with darkness. Pls advise me. What should I do.

You should immediately visit a marriage counselor and sort this matter out. While it was not a good decision to make her abandon her friends, it may have been necessary for various reasons that you have mentioned. However, you will be quite subjective in your judgement and so it is advisable to get a professional opinion on the basis of facts as narrated to that person. Friends can have both good and bad influences but it depends a lot on perception too. It is likely that your wife does not have enough social life and she may be extrovertive in nature which will make her want company a lot. If she is not working, then that craving for company will be even more. These matters may be discussed opening with her but if you are insistent of your way only, then you will need a third person's intervention. Do not delay this any further because of the talk of suicide and also these may develop to a point of no return. Then it will be too late. Counseling should continue as an ongoing process until the matter is resolved completely.

THE IMPORTANCE AND THE ART OF SAYING NO
In our Indian culture, we are taught to be polite and respectful especially with elders, whatever the cost to us. We must be polite with our guests and other relationships and at the workplace. Women must be never say no their in laws if they want to be happy in their married life. Employees should never say no to their bosses or managers or else they will lose their jobs.

There are 6 main reasons why people hesitate in saying NO:

1. You want to help. You are a kind soul at heart. You don’t want to turn the person away and you want to help where possible, even if it may eat into your time.
2. Afraid of being rude. I was brought up under the notion that saying “No”, especially to people who are more senior, is rude and disrespectful.
3. Wanting to be agreeable. You don’t want to alienate yourself from the group because you’re not in agreement. So you confirm to others’ request.
4. Fear of conflict. You are afraid the person might be angry if you reject him/her. This might lead to an ugly confrontation. Even if there isn’t, there might be friction created which might lead to negative consequences in the future.
5. Fear of lost opportunities. Perhaps you are worried saying no means closing doors. For example, one of my clients’ wife was asked to transfer to another department in her company. Since she liked her team, she didn’t want to shift. However, she didn’t want to say no as she felt it would affect her promotion opportunities in the future.
6. Not burning bridges. Some people take “no” as a sign of rejection. It might lead to bridges being burned and relationships severed.

Well these reasons are not true if you are familiar with the art of saying NO. Remember those people who said no to you and you didn't feel bad about it. The trick lies in when and how to say NO.
At the end of the day, it’s about how you say “no”, rather than the fact you’re saying no, that affects the outcome. After all, you have your own priorities and needs, just like everyone has his/her own needs. Saying no is about respecting and valuing your time and space. Saying no is your prerogative.

7 SIMPLE WAYS TO SAY NO
Rather than avoid it altogether, it’s all about learning the right way to say no. After I began to say no to others, I realized it’s really not as bad as I thought. The other people were very understanding and didn’t put up any resistance. Really, the fears of saying no are just in our mind. If you are not sure how to do so, here are 7 simple ways for you to say no. Use the method that best meets your needs in the situation.

The art lies in using appropriate body language, tone and proper timing. Coming across as genuine, warm and friendly will help to set the tone of the interaction and you will be the winner.

1. “I can’t commit to this as I have other priorities at the moment.”
If you are too busy to engage in the request/offer, this will be applicable. This lets the person know your plate is full at the moment, so he/she should hold off on this as well as future requests. If it makes it easier, you can also share what you’re working on so the person can understand better. I use this when I have too many commitments to attend to.

2. “Now’s not a good time as I’m in the middle of something. How about we reconnect at X time?”
It’s common to get sudden requests for help when you are in the middle of something. Sometimes I get phone calls from friends or associates when I’m in a meeting or doing important work. This method is a great way to (temporarily) hold off the request. First, you let the person know it’s not a good time as you are doing something. Secondly, you make known your desire to help by suggesting another time (at your convenience). This way, the person doesn’t feel disappointed or rejected.

3. “I’d love to do this, but …”
I often use this as it’s a gentle way of breaking no to the other party. It’s encouraging as it lets the person know you like the idea (of course, only say this if you do like it) and there’s nothing wrong about it. I often use this line when I get invitations to late night dinners and parties. Their ideas are absolutely great, but I can’t take part due to other reasons such as prior commitments or different needs.

4. “Let me think about it first and I’ll get back to you.”
This is more like a “Maybe” than a straight out “No”. If you are interested but you don’t want to say ‘yes’ just yet, use this. Sometimes I’m pitched a great idea which meets my needs, but I want to hold off on committing as I want some time to think first. There are times when new considerations pop in and I want to be certain of the decision before committing myself. If the person is sincere about the request, he/she will be more than happy to wait a short while. Specify a date / time-range (say, in 1-2 weeks) where the person can expect a reply.

If you’re not interested in what the person has to offer at all, don’t lead him/her on. Use methods #5, #6 or #7 which are definitive.

5. “This doesn’t meet my needs now but I’ll be sure to keep you in mind.”
If someone is pitching a deal/opportunity which isn’t what you are looking for, let him/her know straight-out that it doesn’t meet your needs. Otherwise, the discussion can drag on longer than it should. It helps as the person know it’s nothing wrong about what he/she is offering, but that you are looking for something else. At the same time, by saying you’ll keep him/her in mind, it signals you are open to future opportunities.

6. “I’m not the best person to help on this. Why don’t you try X?”
If you are being asked for help in something which you (i) can’t contribute much to (ii) don’t have resources to help, let it be known they are looking at the wrong person. If possible, refer them to a lead they can follow-up on – whether it’s someone you know, someone who might know someone else, or even a department. I always make it a point to offer an alternate contact so the person doesn’t end up in a dead end. This way you help steer the person in the right place.

7. “No, I can’t.”
The simplest and most direct way to say no. We build up too many fears in our mind to saying no. As I shared earlier in this article, these fears are self-created and they are not true at all. Don’t think so much about saying no and just say it outright. You’ll be surprised when the reception isn’t half as bad as what you imagined it to be.

THE BENEFITS OF SAYING NO:

Overcommitting by trying to cram too many activities into too little time leads to stress. We are much more likely to get sick when we are stressed. And chronic stress can cause serious health risks including depression and heart attacks.

1. OPEN COMMUNICATION: this way you are able to tell people who you really are and what is your capabilities and responsibilities towards yourself. This fosters for honest communication. Other people also see you as a human with virtues and limitations. This builds genuine relationships. Nowadays working women are clear about asking their husbands to pitch in towards house work and husbands are open about wanting a working spouse to support the finances. This creates space for pooling our strengths and working in collaboration with each other.

2. BOUNDARIES: with this practice you will be able to take care of those people who like to push or boss around other people to get their way. Drinking, smoking, drugs are common ways that children and adults with weaker personal boundaries, get drawn into. Learning to say no protects you from potential damage.

3. TIME FOR YOUR GOALS: You make out time for what is important to you and your vision of life. By saying no to late night parties, I am able to eat less junk, get a good sleep and get up early to exercise. Saying no to unrelated office presentations gets you time to spend with family.

Learn to say no to requests that don’t meet your needs, and once you do that you’ll find how easy it actually is. You’ll get more time for yourself, your work and things that are most important to you. I know I do and I’m happy I started doing that.

Sir, I have weakness problem. I have eat all thing but my problem is not polluted. And my memory power not working properly what should I do?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, weakness could possibly be due to some wasting diseases. Please consult a physician to investigate your blood count. 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. Take care.

Dear, the clinical picture of schizophrenia is dominated by relatively stable, often paranoid, delusions, usually accompanied by hallucinations, particularly of the auditory variety (hearing voices), and perceptual disturbances. These symptoms can have a huge effect on functioning and can negatively impact a person? s quality of life. I am sorry to say, paranoid schizophrenia is a lifelong illness, but with proper treatment, a person suffering from the illness can live a higher quality of life. Please work with your psychiatrist for management of your symptoms. Take care.

Dear, I don't see the risk of amnesia in you at this age. Have you met with any accident or trauma? are you diagnosed with anxiety disorder or depression? busy and anxious people do forget many things, that does not mean they have amnesia. Therefore, usually, busy people keep everything in writing or appoint a personal assistant to help them out. Stress is also another factor behind forgetting. People also forget things which they feel unimportant. Therefore, I think, you do not have anything to worry. Still, if you insist, I can run a series of memory related tests to assess your memory. First screening test will be through mobile. Let me know if you are willing. Take care.

Supplements can not substitute healthy lifestyle and eating habits. Even if you work at night, incorporate some kind of exercise, jogging or yoga in your schedule. Generally, stress is when we are not able to do what you wish to do. Your day can ideally be divided into 3 parts of 8 hours each. 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work and you would have atleast 4 hours you can spend on things you want to do. Write down all that you want to finish and check your sleeping hours. When you are working at odd hours, you tend to waste some time feeling - you don't have enough time. Plan and you will be able to accomodate some things in your schedule, if not everything.

Hi lybrate-user, love is an experience that most of us face in our life, but if you want to forget for some reason which you are well aware and made up your mind to forget, then you can go ahead. There are many ways to forget love, you have to be crazy of something else may be what you like to spend more time in like swimming, music, etc. Once you divert yourself into something very strongly, then it is very easy to forget. First you should see beauty in each and every part of your life from nature to kids, which is the most easiest way to overcome depression, and I would suggest you to attend yoga classes also to gain concentration and make your mind more powerful. You can mail or call me if in case you have issues regarding the same. Hope you lead an happy and prosperous life ahead. Regards.

Hi you are not a psycho. I advice you refrain from sex before marriage. Most of the girls or ladies have sex only after marriage. Think positively. Your headache is because you want sex. Try to change your bent of mind. There is no need of frustration. Remember all controls are in the mind. It is only youself who can help yourself in this situation. You need no medicine.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology

Dear , memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

hi, according to the symptoms u told here your mother suffers from a panic attack. I would advise you to contact a good psychiatrist immediately whether she is having this attack or not. In this age due to some hormonal changes also these symptoms occur. So better if you first get her executive health check up done that includes some important blood tests and the major organs check up. All good hospitals are offering this check up now a days. For further discussion you may contact me by asking private question here on lybrate.
