Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

It will help you to know your anger triggers and managing them. Learning safe ways to express anger is also important. Don't bottle up your anger. Writing a personal journal and counselling will help you to assert yourself without getting angry.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), PGDEMS, DNHE, DYA

For some people chocolate helps to reduce stress but it cannot be consumed regularly in large quantity as it has more calories and may lead to obesity. You can try breathing techniques and meditation or meet a counselor who can help you with techniques to overcome the emotional problem. Hope the above information helps you lead a good life. God bless!

Hello doctor, I am 20 years old women. Day after tomorrow my final examination. I am notable to cover all topics. Infact I am not able to remember what I have read. Please give me some advice to overcome this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
First of all it is too late to pile in all that information in such a short time and hope to remember all that stuff. You are putting yourself under a lot of stress which will also jeopardize your memory. Instead study only the most important and often repeated questions, and rely on your previous memory to answer the not-so-important topics, if they appear. You could use some of these tips even though it is rather late in the day they will be still be useful: 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 or coconut 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

Smoking and Its Effect on Teeth

Smoking and Its Effect on Teeth

Smoking is a phenomenon where the smoke emanated from a burning substance, usually tobacco, is inhaled. Smoking is a major cause for multiple diseases such as lung cancer, mouth cancer, blood pressure disorders etc.

Smoking tends to limit the capabilities of the immune system and this makes it easier for various diseases to affect the body. Smoking can lead to problems in the teeth where the gum tissues that attach the bone with the teeth are affected. This may cause the blood flow to the gums to be impaired and affect the functioning of the teeth.

The changes that the teeth undergo due to smoking are -

1. It may increase teeth sensitivity.
2. Smoking causes the teeth to be pulled away from the gums.
3. It can result in swollen and bleeding gums.
4. It may cause pain while chewing food.
5. Bone loss around the jawline occurs in smokers.
6. It can result in stained teeth and bad breath.

Disorders related to the teeth caused by smoking

There are various disorders of the teeth which are directly linked to smoking, they are -

  • Mouth cancer - in this condition tumors are formed in the mouth
  • It can cause plaque to accumulate in the teeth
  • It may cause gum disease that can result in tooth loss
  • It may interfere with healing period of any dental treatment
  • It reduces the success rates of teeth implants
  • Sweeteners present in the tobacco can also cause tooth decay

The effects of smoking on the tooth can be minimized by avoiding smoking altogether. Apart from that, following proper dental hygiene such regular brushing and flossing of the teeth will keep the teeth healthy. Avoiding smoking also reduces chances of lesion leukoplakia (white patches near teeth and gums).

Dear doctor, I am 41 years old from mumbai, india & suffering from moderate levels of obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) which is hereditry (my father is suffering from ocd & alzheimers too). Although my ocd is under control but at times, I feel it becomes uncontrollable despite myself knowing very well that the kind of repetitive acts (common symptoms of ocd) I am doing are totally needless. I can see all traits & symptoms of ocd in myself viz. Rechecking several times, the door lock, geyser, gas etc. Etc. & feeling insecure about the same. I am totally aware that what I am indulging is absolutely needless. Ocd is impairing my daily life & routine. Tasks which should take not more than a few moments take me hours to finish. I have apprehensions that if my ocd gets out-of-control, my life might become miserable & pathetic in future (it is already on that track). It has already affected my career & life adversely since I keep on getting repetitive thought-patterns through-out the day about the conversations I have had with people in person or on the phone i. E. Flashback thoughts about such conversations go through my mind recursively hence I am unable to concentrate & focus on any constructive work because of these endless repetitive thoughts. I have also been suffering from the mental illness viz. Trichotillomania (nose hair pulling, impulse control disorder) since last 5 years. Whenever I am deeply engrossed in some work and/or thoughts, my hands inadvertently & invariably go in the nostrils area & start plucking the nose hair strands continuously. The urges are very strong at times whenever I am tensed & anxious or under severe pressure or stress. This has ruined my career & impaired my life immensely. I don't do the hair-pulling act in public but whenever I am alone. I don't have any control whatsoever over it though mostly I am fully aware whenever i'm pulling but really can't help stop it; the urges are really that strong. This annoying & irritating habit consumes lots of precious time & hampers my work. So much so that, I leave my work & stand in front of the mirror looking for hair strands to pull-out. What are the possible treatment lines for ocd & trichotillomania? please help me, i'm terribly depressed. Kindly advice the treatment & the therapy I need to undergo to cure myself of ocd & trichotillomania thanks in anticipation. Warm regards

Dear user, welcome to lybrate-user. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You must quit smoking immediately. Gymnasium exercises and smoking never go hand in hand. Please quit smoking. Regarding your building of muscles, you have to make a chart of food you take and then consult me again. You may have to alter your diet so that you get all the required nutrients. Also let me know for how many hours you exercise in gym, and what types of exercises you do and how many times. Take care.

This is all because of poor posture for prolonged period of time, you need to do some hot fomentation, local application of any pain relieving gel after that, and some gentle stretches and strengthening exercises considering your age.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help

I suggest online education counseling. Take care.
