Just follow these instructions meticulously. At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 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. 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. 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 all junk food.

I don't want to be a gay. But I m interested to men? what I have to do?
Well, it's okay that you are interested in men. This means either you have more female members in your family or you have less unisex friends. It is natural that anybody is attracted towards handsome men and beautiful ladies. One another interpretation of this behaviour may be that you unconsciously feel uncomfortable with women due to whatever reasons ; or you feel inferior at some issues. All you do is to boost up your self confidence. Once you would start feeling handsome and confident internally you would be behaving with everybody normally. Don't think that others are looking at you and what they would be saying, instead think that you are looking at others and you are awesome. I hope this works for you.

Hallucinations - 5 Signs of it

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist

Serious mental disorders and side effects to varied medicines may cause hallucinations in many individuals. Psychosis and Schizophrenia are the most commonly known causes that may cause this condition. Hallucinations are sensations and feelings that may appear as real to the patient, convincing him or her of the occurrence of things that are not really happening in reality. Hearing voices, seeing people, and experiencing things that no one else can, are some of the ways in which hallucinations work.

Let us find out the varied signs and symptoms of this condition.

Hearing Voices: One of the most common signs of hallucinations includes hearing voices. You may hear voices from people who cannot be seen or heard by other people around you. In such cases, you may have the distinct feeling of hearing these voices from within or from a source outside your own mind and body. In many cases, you may feel like these voices are trying to talk to you or give you a certain message. Ringing of the ears on a persistent basis may also be experienced in such cases.

Visual Hallucinations: These hallucinations will make the patient see things. In such cases, the patient may be witness to a scene that cannot be seen by anyone else a scene that may not be happening in reality. In visual hallucinations, the patient may also see people that other people in the room or the area cannot see. The patient may also see objects and other creatures like insects crawling across his or her hand, and may react with fear or anxiety, when in reality, no such scene may be happening. These kind of hallucinations also cause occipital seizures where the patient will see spots, shapes and rings of brightly coloured lights that may be coming towards him or her, or even encircle him or her.

Feeling Things: These kinds of hallucinations will make the patient feel things that may not really be happening. For example, these hallucinations will make the patient feel hot during winters or feel a blast of air even when there has been none.

Taste Hallucinations: In these hallucinations, the patient may get a salty taste from sweet food, or vice versa. These hallucinations make the patient imagine that he or she tastes a certain flavor when in reality, this may not be true. These are also called gustatory hallucination.

Olfactory Hallucinations: These hallucinations have to do with odd smells that the patient may get a whiff of. In these hallucinations, the patient imagines certain smells like burning, or other odours. Patients may also feel that their own bodies are letting out certain odours which may not be the actual case.
Delusion vs. Hallucination

A delusion is a false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly sustained despite what almost everybody else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary. The belief is not one ordinarily accepted by other members of the person's culture or subculture (e.g., it is not an article of religious faith).

A hallucination occurs when environmental, emotional, or physical factors such as stress, medication, extreme fatigue, or mental illness cause the mechanism within the brain that helps to distinguish conscious perceptions from internal, memory-based perceptions to misfire. As a result, hallucinations occur during periods of consciousness. They can appear in the form of visions, voices or sounds, tactile feelings (known as haptic hallucinations), smells, or tastes.

Delusions are a common symptom of several mood and personality-related mental illnesses, including schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, shared psychotic disorder, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder. They are also the major feature of delusional disorder. Individuals with delusional disorder suffer from long-term, complex delusions that fall into one of six categories: persecutory, grandiose, jealousy, erotomanic, somatic, or mixed.

Hello sir, you asked me to be more clear about my anxiety condition. As I have mentioned earlier that I am asocial person so I have limited people in my life. I was advised by local doctor last year to enhance my social circle try socializing which has only lead to develop some expectations and has made me more social. I have a body shivering problem. I can not figure out the reason of sour relations with everyone including my parents which is disturbing me. Most of the time pessimistic no matter how much I try making it positive. Also have to deal with future oriented anxiety. Its been 6 days of chronic headache due to my decision of quiting smoking. No one is happy with me.

Good Morning ~ I am glad your social anxiety disorder or social phobia is gradually getting better and you are socializing more. Body shivering or tremors can be due to anxiety attacks or panic attacks and this can be easily treated with either therapy or medications. I recommend a combination of both which is more effective. With regards to your parents and your problems with relationship with them I would have to learn more so that I can understand and try to help with your condition a bit better. Underlying depression may be the cause of pessimism and procrastination, along with social phobia. Anticipatory anxiety which is being worried about becoming worried is something which needs to be treated medically.

There is very little urine pass (below 400 millilitre per day) since past two days. I had 4 alcoholic drinks two days ago. I am suffering from dehydration? While I had 6 glasses of water in the morning, does this low urine output mean that my body is still in dehydration mode despite consuming 6 glass of water. Do I shift to intake of electrolytes?

Hi, obesity is a serious problem in any age. The common causes are mostly sedentary life style, food habits and may be some medication related. Your father 1st has to be assessed for the reason of his obesity. Then only a proper planning for therapy can be done. But for the time being he can control his diet, has to prevent the total calorie intake as per his diet requirement. You can consult a dietician for that. You can motivate him for morning walk at least thrice in a wk for 30 mints duration. This will help him a lot. Once he starts walking he will feel good. You have to review his medication (with doctor). If wt gain is medication induced has to change or stop the offending agents. Thanks.

Sizodon ls is not a antidepressant medication, it s an antipsychotic. Your daughter must be suffering from psychosis, if the psychiatrist has prescribed this. If for past 1 year there is no recovery, you need to get a 2nd opinion. Since sizodon make the person drowsy, whether it is chronic schizophrenia, or something else.

Sometimes I am Short tempered when my beloved do some wrong and makes some bad behaviour and gets angry without logically, and sometimes I understand that she doesn't understand my feelings whenever she makes me angry again and again. I get a lot anger that time and wish to go an end. Please suggest me what must I do?

You definitely seem to have anger management issues. Let me first assure you that nobody around you is the cause for your distress. It is your belief system that judges every kind of outside behaviour irrationally so that you ending up in a problem. This is definitely not to blame you. Once you learn to deal with/ manage to rearrange your belief system to think rationally your negative emotions certainly won't remain harmful to you at all. I understand that this seems a bit complicated to you. But some sessions of ret with behaviour therapy would certainly help you come out of this. Consult a ret therapist or a psychiatrist for counseling and therapy.

Is smoking Marijuana/Ganja Harmful, because I heard its medicine and can even prevent cancer.

Marijuana has both useful and harmful substances. The useful substance will be extracted and formed in capsule forms and will be available in markets for cancer related pain and chemotherapy induced side effects. Consuming it whole may lead to more harm than benefits As it has addictive tendency, may alter behaviour, can lead to hallucinations. So it is not advisable to take thinking it's anticancerous.
