I am 18 year old student. I am studying in class 12th. I have poor memory. So suggests diet and exercise to keep my brain sharp.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Here are several you might try. 1. Keep learning A higher level of education is associated with better mental functioning in old age. Experts think that advanced education may help keep memory strong by getting a person into the habit of being mentally active. Challenging your brain with mental exercise is believed to activate processes that help maintain individual brain cells and stimulate communication among them. Many people have jobs that keep them mentally active, but pursuing a hobby, learning a new skill, or volunteering for a project at work that involves a skill you don?t usually use can function the same way. 2. Use all your senses The more senses you use in learning something, the more of your brain will be involved in retaining the memory. In one study, adults were shown a series of emotionally neutral images, each presented along with a smell. They were not asked to remember what they saw. Later, they were shown a set of images, this time without odors, and asked to indicate which they?d seen before. They had excellent recall for all odor-paired pictures, and especially for those associated with pleasant smells. Brain imaging indicated that the piriform cortex, the main odor-processing region of the brain, became active when people saw objects originally paired with odors, even though the smells were no longer present and the subjects hadn?t tried to remember them. So challenge all your senses as you venture into the unfamiliar. 3. Believe in yourself Myths about aging can contribute to a failing memory. Middle-aged and older learners do worse on memory tasks when they?re exposed to negative stereotypes about aging and memory, and better when the messages are positive about memory preservation into old age. People who believe that they are not in control of their memory function ? joking about ?senior moments? too often, perhaps ? are less likely to work at maintaining or improving their memory skills and therefore are more likely to experience cognitive decline. If you believe you can improve and you translate that belief into practice, you have a better chance of keeping your mind sharp. 4. Prioritize your brain use If you don?t need to use mental energy remembering where you laid your keys or the time of your granddaughter?s birthday party, you?ll be better able to concentrate on learning and remembering new and important things. Take advantage of calendars and planners, maps, shopping lists, file folders, and address books to keep routine information accessible. Designate a place at home for your glasses, purse, keys, and other items you use often. 5. Repeat what you want to know When you want to remember something you?ve just heard, read, or thought about, repeat it out loud or write it down. That way, you reinforce the memory or connection. For example, if you?ve just been told someone?s name, use it when you speak with him or her: ?So, John, where did you meet Camille?? 6. Space it out Repetition is most potent as a learning tool when it?s properly timed. It?s best not to repeat something many times in a short period, as if you were cramming for an exam. Instead, re-study the essentials after increasingly longer periods of time ? once an hour, then every few hours, then every day. Spacing out periods of study is particularly valuable when you are trying to master complicated information, such as the details of a new work assignment.

Hi lybrate-userhere are 6 ways to gain weight healthily: 1. Eating 5 to 6 meals a day in order to gain weight, start eating 5-6 meals a day by breaking them into parts. Eating a lot at once may cause indigestion if the body fails to absorb all nutrients. Eat in small amounts, even if you are not hungry and there will be an increase in appetite from day to day. The aim should be to have a generously portioned breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as two to three snacks in between. 2. Start weight training if you build your muscles through weight training, it will convert the extra weight into lean body mass and also stimulate your appetite. The extra muscle increases the rate of metabolism. When you start exercising you will often experience extreme muscle soreness but it goes away in 3-5 days. 3. Load up on protein besides weight training, a protein-rich diet can help you gain mass. Eating a meal heavy in protein shortly after finishing exercise can be highly effective in adding extra pounds to your body. However, a diet focused only on lean protein is not helpful. It is important to make sure that your diet has plenty of fat in it. Eat foods rich in protein like cheese, meat, eggs, etc to gain weight in a healthy manner. 4. Workout your entire body a lot of people focus only on training the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Firstly, it will give you a disproportionate body; and it will make you prone to injuries. Therefore, it's important to work out the entire body for a complete and balanced look. 5. Drink your calories to reach the calorie requirement only by eating may be tough. Drinking milk, milkshakes or protein shakes with little or no sugar can be an effective way to load up on the calorie requirements. 6. Be patient and believe in yourself gaining weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Every body type is different and it takes months to gain weight. Living healthy by eating the right diet will increase your strength. It is also important to keep following the routine even if you don't see any gains. Caution: junk food and fried foods must be avoided; although have a tendency to add more fat to your body but are very low in vitamins and minerals which are essentially required to keep you really fit.

I had epilepsy problem some twenty five year ago. I gradually reduced the dosage and I was alright. Bud suddenly had an attack yesterday. What should I do.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Panchkula
Hello mam. You must contact your doctor without a delay as your condition needs re-evaluation and maybe, your medicines need to be continued. If you want to reduce or stop your medication, it must be done under guidance of your doctor only, as unsupervised change of medication is always harmful. Please take care.

Lybrate-user it is always good to do a full body check up, once, every year. Just see a good doctor in your city, do a full body basic check-up. Your general physician will prescribe medication as per your health reports after full-body check-up. All the best.

Plan ahead - write down things what you want to accomplish. Eat a good breakfast meditate- enhances certain brain functions linked to attention. Do smaller tasks - split up projects into individual tasks so they're easier to accomplish. Reward yourself take little breaks.

Living with Grief and Loss - How to Cope With it?

Living with Grief and Loss - How to Cope With it?

People often experience grief when they lose something special or someone very valuable to them. This feeling of grief and loss tends to have various adverse effects one one’s personality, relationships and health. The effects of grief on a person usually depend on different factors, which include the kind of loss suffered, the person’s beliefs, age and his mental or physical health.

Losing someone makes each one of us in a different way. Anxiety and feeling helpless are two things that mostly affect people. Feelings of anger and anxiety are also experienced in the early stages of coping with loss. The sadness creeps in eventually. Grief and loss can affect a person seriously and cause different health hazards. It is quite difficult for a person to heal instantly and they continue feeling bad for a long period of time. However, one day you will recover for sure.

Here are some ways to cope with grief and loss:

  1. You have to express yourself and share all the feelings bottled inside you. You should talk about your feelings with a close friend or family member. This is the beginning of the healing process.
  2. When you feel sad, you should not try to avoid it. Feeling sad is a healthy part of the process of grieving and instead of hiding the fact that you are sad under a mask, you should allow the sadness.
  3. Try to follow your regular schedule instead of isolating yourself. By following a schedule you will keep yourself active, which will help in healing. You should take walks and not lock yourself up in a room as this will make your condition worse.
  4. Plenty of sleep is required during the healing stage. Emotional strain makes you tired and hence, undisturbed sleep is very much essential for your health. If you do not get proper sleep, consult a doctor.
  5. A healthy, balanced diet is also important for coping with loss and grief. Avoid food that will wear you down. Eat light and healthy and do not skip meals.
  6. You must avoid intake of substances, which help in easing the pain. Do not consume too much alcohol. It may temporarily numb the pain, but afterwards you will feel worse.
  7. Counselling is important after you get through the initial healing stage on your own. After several weeks or a month, you should go to a counselor and have regular therapy sessions. The ideal time to start counselling depends wholly on you and your state.
  8. Antidepressant medicines can also be taken on prescription for feeling better.

Coping with grief and loss is quite a difficult task. A lot of patience is required and instead of giving into sorrow, one must get up and take all steps required for quick recovery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Yes it is! probably this is cervical factor infertility. You need to do a simple 7-14 day antibiotic course to finish the pelvic infection. Without that thin egg white discharge the sperms won't be able to climb up and reach the egg for pregnancy.

Feeling lonely and disinterested in surroundings and having a feeling of worthlessness are signs of depression. Depression like any another illness is treatable with medicines and counselling. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist.

Ok so i'm a 25 year old unmarried girl- singer and fashion blogger. In relationship with a divorced man (2 broken engagements earlier) with a 6 year old son. We fell in love and got engaged within a month. It's 2 years now and These days I'm full of negative thoughts and guilt and all tears. It was my birthday, and in his child's school a Mother's Day.(His parents and child live in Bangalore) we had made a 2 day holiday plan as relationship was getting worse each passing day. He chose to go visit son and spend time with him rather so he doesn't feel left out. I was thinking of first sorting things between us and then take step ahead. On my 25th birthday I was alone. He made me feel guilty that I don't care about child's emotions, I feel abandoned. Was my decision of not going without sorting our personal issues right? Or was it wrong on my part? Did he do the right thing by prioritising child over my emotions? I feel so lost n broken.

Dear lybrate-user, Firstly, a big hug for you. Relationships can be hard sometimes. Especially so if your partner has children, one has to keep juggling priorities. I feel that you both were right in your respective spaces. His child became the priority and for your resolving your personal issues became yours, it was a catch 22 situation. But all that is in the past. You are young, you have a wonderful life ahead of you. If you have chosen to be with this man then give it your best, accept him with his family, love them like your own. Things will start to change for the better. He has not abandoned you, birthdays are important but sometimes we cannot be together, that's life, you'll have more birthdays together. But be sure that he is the one for you, don't be in a hurry to marry, take your time. Try to resolve your issues first. Also, I feel individual and couples therapy is something that you both would benefit from. You can reach me here and we can set up a session if you feel that you're ready to resolve this and would like some support. Hope things work out for you. God bless.

If you didn't want to have sex with him and said no. It's ok because you have the right to do what you want. Your friend seems to be bisexual which is a variation of sexuality which is seen in very small percentage in humans. Though it's considered normal scientifically, but in indian society it is looked down upon and such people face a lot of marginalisation and rejection from the rest, which leads to mental and emotional trauma for them. I suggest that you don't try to change him at all. Try to understand him and his life. He might be having sex with men and women but in his private moments, he could be sad and disturbed. If he's interested to visit a psychiatrist / counsellor to vent out any emotional baggage.
