Whom do you choose the psychiatrist or a psychologist? How do you know who is the appropriate for you? How to choose ...
A psychiatrist is a doctor. A psychiatrist mainly deals with severe mental disorders or diseases and also patients with addictions. Prescribes medicines and suggest/monitor ect if required. A psychiatrist deals mostly with physical aspect of the disorder and does not engage in therapeutic work. A psychologist is a person who is not a doctor but has studied pschology. A psychologists mainly deals with patients with mild to moderate behaviour disorders. A psychologist has a number of tools for assessing the severity of disorder in the patient. A psychologist cannot prescribe medicines and deals with the emotional part of the disorder. Helps the patients by using various therapies - mainly focusing of thought processes and behaviours. There is no best psychiatrist or no best psychologist - each patient will have their own experience with these professionals. You may check with people known to you or may check on the net, and find the best one suited for your needs. The relation between the patient and the doctor/psychologist is a professional relation. Hence, once the rapport is build, the patient feels more comfortable. So enquire about the professionals suitable to your needs. Take an appointment and after 1 - 2 meetings you can decide whether they are appropriate for you or not.

Seeing your parents fighting would have left you insecure and fearful. Your trust in people and relationships has not developed because you haven't seen your parents modelling it for you. Yet it's not the end of the world. You can stay in your city and still work towards building your life and relationships. Try to remember those times when you did have a friend or cared for someone even briefly. Even if there were very few people who you cared for but still you did it. Inside the lonely person there is a gentle and beautiful person who wants to love and be loved. Nurture that part of you and let it grow. You will start living your life again. Change your counsellor if the other one didn't help you.

Dear lybrate user, **the food but ginger is well accepted as a traditional cure for indigestion. Ginger as a food ingredient or in a strong ginger tea helps in causing stimulation of saliva, bile juices and gastric juices while all these play important roles in digestion. Drinking ginger tea is certainly much more beneficially to get rid of gas and indigestion problems than coffee and soda.

My friend is smoking from 3 years. He wants to quit! Can his lungs get free and fresh again? Is there a probability that he is already suffering from lung problem?

BHMS, MD - Alternate Medicine
Homeopath, Nagpur
Ask him to quite step by step, one cigarette a week. The current status or his lungs damage is depends on the quantity and duration of his cigarettes smoking. Anyway the best thing that he do is decide to quite it step by step. However his current status of lung damage is to be seen by getting his x ray chest done. You may also try for pulmonary function test. In case you may find any difficulty in this you may get in touch if required.

I was a bright student since childhood I was a topper .but since last two years even can't pass in exams. I am in class 12 right now and merely 40 days are left for board exams which will indeed decide my future my entire life. When I sit to study my mind goes somewhere else and I don't even know when I got distracted. I study for long hours but then also I forget 80% matter studied. I can't remember things .when I sit in exam hall I feel a sort of tiredness a sort of sleepiness and so I can't even manage to pass I don't know how I got in this but I wanna get rid of all this. Also I sit for long hours but I can do very meagre very little study that's not enough to pass in board exams even most dull students are far ahead of me I feel very sad and my parents do not know all this is happening with me please help.

Every moment is precious for you now, as only 40 days are left for your exam. Rather than wasting your time thinking of the consequences of the exam, utilize the remaining time to the fullest & put your maximum effort in your preparation. Take the following measures to improve your concentration & prepare well: •Make a study routine giving maximum time for studies. Also give adequate time for sleep, rest & relaxation. Between studies you have to relax also. This will help in sustaining your interest & concentration. Try to stick to your routine. At night look back how much you could follow the routine & reward yourself if the day was productive & to your satisfaction. In the form of reward you can give little extra time for relaxation next day, watch TV or spend some with internet, eat something you like, meet a friend etc. Encourage yourself daily. •Revise your lessons regularly. •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Group studies & group discussions are also helpful. •Do not try to memorize blindly. Try to understand your lessons. •Write down the main points & form mnemonics from them. Mnemonic devices are techniques which help to remember something. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word. •Have a plan to manage your time of study. Make a routine for studying. Study for 30-45 minutes & then take 5-10 mins break. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •During these days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •Every morning relax yourself adequately before you sit for studies; go for a walk, spend some time with nature, go for a walk, do yoga, breathing exercise or relaxation techniques. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. All the best for your preparation & for your exam. Give your best.

Premature ejaculation is amongst the most easily treatable disorders. It s mostly due to anxiety and not related to habits you mentioned. Consult a psychiatrist, medications do wonder and you can be made to sustain intercourse for 10-15 mins or even more. All the best.

Hello, parkinsons is a progressive disease of the nervous system marked by tremor, muscular rigidity, and slow, imprecise movement, chiefly affecting middle-aged and elderly people. It is associated with degeneration of the basal ganglia of the brain and a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Consult a good homoeopath for the proper treatment. He will take a complete case history of your father and then accordingly give him a perfect suitable medication. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions always arise because of irritation, disappointment or events which were negative and not expected. But you should understand, these are common. You cannot change situations or circumstances. But we can always alter our perception and behavior about what is happening. This the core of anger management. I suggest online anger management training. Take care.

Must Have Brain Foods for Your Kids!

M.Phil biotech and PGD Dietitics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Panchkula
Must Have Brain Foods for Your Kids!

Early childhood is a time when the brain develops rapidly and nutrition is an important part of healthy brain development. It is important for children to eat a variety of foods that can provide them with the proper intake of carbohydrate, protein, good fats, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. There is a very strong mind-gut connection; therefore focusing on the food you choose to complete the nutritional needs of your child can make a great difference in their brain function.

Certain foods are better for our brains than others, these brain foods may help boost a child's brain growth and even improve the memory and cognitive development.

During infancy, the amino acids and fatty acids in breast milk are ideal for optimal brain development. The brain continues to grow throughout early childhood and children who do no consume a balanced diet are at risk of developing mental retardation and behavioral problem.

10 brain foods to feed the mind and body properly:

1. Whole grains: Brain needs a consistent supply of glucose, thus foods those are high in refined sugars and carbohydrates leads to rapid fluctuation in blood glucose levels and the brain doesn't get the steady fuel supply and energy for proper functioning, therefore to nourish the most active part of body include whole-grain breads, oatmeal, roasted grains in the diet of children for regular release of glucose in body. Oats are also rich in vitamin-B, Vitamin-E, potassium and zinc.

2. Eggs: The protein and nutrients in eggs help kids concentrate because the egg yolks are packed with choline which boosts memory. Eggs are also rich in protein, which provides energy to help the brain stay alert longer.

3. Fish: Fish is a good source of vitamin D and omega-3s, which protect the brain from declining mental skills and memory loss. Salmon, tuna, and sardines are all rich in Omega-3s. The more Omega-3s we can get to the brain, the better it will function and the better kids will be able to focus.

4. Seeds: Packed with protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Seeds may boost mood and keep your nervous system in check. For example sunflower seed butter as they are rich in folate, vitamin E and selenium and are safe for nut-free zones.try to include seeds directly to the meals.

5. Iron is important for brain development: Preschoolers and toddlers typically eat less iron-rich foods than they did in infancy. In addition, the iron that children get is usually non-Heme iron (from plant sources,) which has lower availability than heme iron (from animal source).sources beef, nuts and dark leafy vegetable (spinach) and tofu.

6. Milk and Yoghurt: Milk and yoghurt contains healthy fats and proteins those are important for brain health. The majority of the brain is made up of fat, so it is no wonder healthy fat is important to feed the developing brain. Protein is important as it can help brain cells send and receive information effectively. Yoghurt also contains good bacteria that will help boost your child's immune system as well as aid digestion, children need higher dose of vitamin D, which is present in dairy and its products.

7. Organic Foods and leafy vegetables: These organic foods are free from pesticides and insecticides and preservatives and do not cause neurodevelopment problems in children, which will impair proper brain functioning. Green leafy vegetables are loaded with vitamin A and K; these keep inflammation at bay .e.g. Spinach, kale, lettuce.

8. Walnuts: The high level of antioxidants, vitamin and minerals in walnuts improves the cognitive health of kids and improve their mental alertness also.

9. Colorful veggies: Vegetables with a rich, deep color such as tomatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, carrots, and spinach are the best sources of antioxidants that support brain health and keep brain cells strong. These foods can be given from weaning age.

10. Berries: The color of the food tells the nutritional value of it. All the berries like strawberry, cherries, blueberries and blackberries have intense color are especially rich in vitamin C and high levels of antioxidants. Blueberries have high levels of Gallic acid, which boost memory by preventing degeneration of brain cells.

So, go ahead and try to include different food group to your Child's plate for a better performance.

Good Morning ~ There are many problems surrounding caste in India and it is not only limited to Maharashtra. Although it is present all over the world, it seems to evoke more attention in India. I believe that you are a sensitive person and you would do well to make sure that you are getting all the kind of help that you need with the kind of understand of the system. If you are a person who becomes anxious about caste then it may be a good idea to give everyone due respect so that you get that back in equal amounts. I do not know your background, however you need to focus on your work and not worry about the results like they say in our traditional verses - karmanyevaadhikaaraste maa phaleshu kadachana.

How can I remove the bad thoughts from my mind? since last year I am facing this problem. There is fear of dying. How do I solve it?

M.Sc - Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
What bad thoughts you get? whenever you get such thoughts, change it to positive thoughts. Death is certain in everyone's life. Its already fixed. No one can change it. No need to get afraid of death. Simply thinking about it is useless. Do good things. Help the needy. Engage yourself in creative work. Concentrate on the work you do. There are many things you can do and be happy.

Dear , such an attitude is not normal but cannot be counted as rare. Such things are seen in many people and there is nothing to worry about. In due course you will learn how to manage that too. You may do well with psychological counseling. Take care.

OCD and Depression can co-exist, from what you say OCD symptoms are under control and depressive symptoms aren't. But you have not mentioned the medications, dose and how long you have been taking. If for 6 months your taking from a psychiatrist and you do not feel significant improvement, it's wise to get a second opinion. Also give the 2nd opinion same amount of time to show results. All the best.
