Do alcohol, drug abuse or masturbation kill brain cells? Can dead brain cells recover?

Do alcohol, drug abuse or masturbation kill brain cells? Can dead brain cells recover?
Dead brain cells will not recover. Alcohol and drugs, when overused, can cause brain cell damage. When a person drinks till he is sloshed, for example, 10000 brain cells can be damaged forever. Masturbation is not known to cause any brain cell damage.

Hello, parkinson's desease can cause skin changes making skin extremely dry. It could also be a side-effect of a medicine as the medicines given for parkinson's are strong. For cracked and painful heels, the solution is moisturizing and nuetralising the dryness. I don't know what medicines you have used, -use polysporin cracked heels cream or put vaseline petroleum jelly on the cracks, put in good amount. -massage feet with a lot of moisturiser. -try to scrape the dry skin by dipping feet in hot water for some time.(avoid the areas that are painful) - never let the feet dry, apply moisturiser and vaseline repeatedly. -at last, in the night before bed, make her wear cotton socks after moisturising. -do not walk bare feet, wear soft chappal, if possible, wear socks most of the time. You will have to help her for applying moisturiser and make her follow all the instructions as she is suffering from parkinson's and might not be able to take so much care on her own.

I am 30 years old male and consume tobacco for many years. I am now worried for my teeth. What shall I do ?

General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available.

There may be some organicity to investigate too. However, if you have tried flashcards to improve your visual and auditory recall, then you can continue to repeat it often until noticeable change occurs. If you have not tried that, then please get those cards to help your dyslexia. You must also employ the kinesthetic, tactile, auditory, and visual modes of learning and practice daily. The tactile gives you a 'feel' of the letters and words, and the kinesthetic will give you movement symbols of letters and words to help you store permanent memories associated with words and the phonetics associated with them. It will also be good to seek counseling for the emotions that have built up over the years and take care of them too.

I am too Lazy Nd Cannot Do Anything Nd Feeling Depression Sometimes What Should Be Done In This Can You Suggest.
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

Hello. I m student and I m getting tired from my study. actually I am preparing for competitive exam. I can't concentration on my studies please help me.

I suspect that the adolescent issues (If you are in your teens) 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 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. 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.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Smoking addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Spend your time in nice activities like nice books and articles , and avoid cheap and flickering pleasure of smoking weed which can damage your life. Smoking weed is an intoxicant which is bad for body, mind and well-being. One should be ready to realize the bad effects, then one can avoid smoking weeds by engaging mind and body in more constructive activities Please remember that Smoking weed is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga. To know about sources of books and articles kindly contact me
