Hi I am newly married boy. It's arranged marriage. After 2 months later of my marriage my wife disclose me her four yera relationship with a boy but there was no physical relationship made during that period. After that I am in depression,. I am very confused, and feel that I made a mistake after marriage of this type of girl. What should I do tell me I am taking pills for sleep. Problem of headache occur. Please tell what should I do?

Hi. You are feeling distressed, betrayed and thinking too much. Look at the other side. Your wife put in so much trust on you that she opened her heart to you by telling honestly about her life before marriage. She had all the options not to say anything but she chose to share a very personal part of her life with you. You may have difficulty digesting it, but if you see her faith in you then probably your anger may reduce. What she did before marriage has nothing to do with today. Anybody can have a relationship that may not have worked for them and so they move on. She has moved on too. Taking her past and judging her for it is not going to help you in anyway. Instead of brooding over something that has happened before and not at all related to your present, it will be appropriate if you can build a healthy relationship with her now. She is a human being, just like you, with feelings. So give her your love, which is her right and lead a fulfilling life. Past is past. All that you have now is your present, so live it to the fullest. If you are unable to make peace with yourself then do consult a counsellor to explore your value and belief systems.

Good Morning ~ Performance anxiety or social anxiety disorder is way too common and the most common among the psychiatric group of anxiety disorders. Cure is effective when both medical and talk therapy or counseling approaches are used and it will help with overcoming this problem sooner than later. I also believe that you may be able to learn some mind controlling exercises using yoga, pranayama and mindfulness meditation. I can certainly help with the medications part of the problem. Look forward to hearing from you.

My Memory is too sharp before half year but I don't know what happens to me now it's difficult for me to remember thing that I read one aur two days before. Before a year everything that I read it would be stored at my brain fir year as it is read. As I am student it very important for me to memorize the thing properly. So it can't effect my studies. Please advise me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain! CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs . If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Effects of Smoking and Drinking on Oral Hygiene
Smoking

There is a very famous quote that smoking is a very classy way to commit suicide. Its adverse effects is not only evident on the smoker's lungs and respiratory system but on his health as a whole. The mouth suffers the immediate consequences - gums become pale, teeth lose their white color and the taste buds and the tongue get affected. It also has a damaging effect on the mouth muscles and lead to frequent mouth and tongue dryness ultimately leading to oral cancer.

Smoking during pregnancy affects the embryo formation and very often leads to the delivery of abnormal children or physical deformities in them.

The Role of Nicotine

The concoction of chemicals like nicotine in tobacco or smoke, and plaque bacteria leads to deterioration of the teeth. Before you realize, the teeth and the gums get considerably damaged which is irreversible. This paves the way to cavities and loosening of teeth that eventually have to be pulled out.

Alcohol

Alcohol contains good amount of sugars, which very easily settle in the mouth making it a bacteria-breeding place that feed on gums and teeth. The smoke which is drawn from a cigarette and the bacteria present together release a dangerous acid which results in stomach acidity initially and ultimately leads to oral cancer. This is also another reason to throat and intestine cancers as well.

Limiting the Damage

It is always good to quit smoking and drinking. Even though being addicted is not good, keeping the damage at its minimum is advisable. It is very important not only to brush and floss your teeth every morning but also after every meal. It is a good habit to rinse the mouth with water very often when you are drinking to normalize the saliva flow. Do not forget to keep chewing sugar free gums very often if you are a regular drinker.
Regular visits to the dentist is almost a mandate for regular smokers and drinkers. If you or any of your family members are facing oral hygiene problems and looking for suggestions or treatment

Drink two litres of water. Eat plenty of pulses, meat, fish and milk. Avoid hair cosmetics. Wash hair twice or thrice a week. Shampoo should be done to wash dirt, dust and grime and not for anything else. Don't use dyes, bleaches or straighteners. Massage scalp to improve circulation. After a bath, don't blow dry your hair instead naturally dry hair. If any scalp infection, get it treated. Any allergy should be taken care of. 1.tab biotin daily for 1 month 2.tab fe ( if your fe level is reeduce ) 3.scalp massage with antioxidant oil

I am suffering from obsessive compulsive diorder i have seen a lot of pshychtrists i have taken a lot of antideppresents but nothing is working this time i am taking cipralex 150.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obsession is a repeating thought pattern that is not concrete; and compulsion is a repeating behavior pattern that is non-productive. As a combination they occupy the individual to the point of stagnating in their state for long durations of time. Sometimes, it can cripple the person from doing normal chores, and sometimes the OCD will place some importance to the frequency of an action to again slow down their function. There is a tendency to attribute some magical thinking to it too. All this boils down to the fact that underlying this behavior is some irrational fear. This may have been triggered off during a very vulnerable time in your life, especially during adolescence. The medication you are taking is for OCD but I do not know that you have mentioned the right dose. I think you need to reach out to a talk therapist too. S/He will help you look at the fear and deal with it appropriately. This will give you skills and techniques instead of merely depending on the action of medicine. And stop seeing so many psychiatrists. Trust one person and work with that person only. But you do need counseling along with medication.

Dear lybrate-user, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

Psychologist,
Your son is entering his teenage life and emotional imbalance is one part of their growing up due to their hormones levels changing. And anger is one such emotion that teens express a lot. As a father, you need to understand his physical and emotional needs as a growing teen. He doesn't need medication unless he has mental illness. He simply needs to see an adolescent counsellor, who will help him to navigate the adolescent years with more confidence and control, which he might be missing in his life right now. Counselling is done through talking only and no medications are given.

When I was at the mid of 11th class whatever I read that will be atlest for 3-4 months but now it's a matter of 1 week or sometimes 1 day's. And for these bluddy back bones they start paining within half an hour even if I walk, start etc till my back Bones bend somewhat or I get led somewhere. Please Help me to get out of these things. I'm in very big Trouble.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

For your backbone problems please meet with an orthopedic doctor. It may or may not have to do with stress. But your problems with memory that started about two years ago has some bearing towards the late adolescence. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. 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 chemical: 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 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. There is 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. 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 sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week
