Hello All, Greetings, Here is my problem. Am over possessive on my friends. This is my character. Till my PG Studies i was in boys school and boys college. So there is no interaction with Girls. When i entered into a IT Company, The company is a small one. The Boys and Girls are taking very closely. Every girl has a close friend as boy and the girls are depending the boys. That makes me feels lonely. From that onwards i started to talking a girl. Finally she was very close to me and am also very close to her. Whatever it is she never forgot to call me. In that time her roomate loves a boy. Whenever her roommate going for outing with my friend only. I hate that and fight with her. She knows am loving her and she also loved me. In recent days my office boys 2 members talking to her. That makes more angry and argued with her daily. Finally she complaints me in the company and lost my job. Still am loving her deeply. I want her in my life. What can i do? How can i reduce my anger

You blew up a very good relationship due to your possessiveness and jealousy. When you are in love with someone, you do not own them, or their time, or their relations, or their thoughts. These are all signs that you are very insecure. Now, no girl will want to be in such a relationship. You angered her to such an extent that she complained against you and you lost your job. That only means that you crossed boundaries of decency. I also think that you have lost her forever. Before you get into another relationship, I advise you to meet with a counselor and deal with your insecurities and then when you have sorted that out, you will know how to respect the other person?s freedom and independence. Otherwise, you will be prone to repeat your mistakes. Your insecurity is based on fear, and your anger is an escalation over that fear ?o You may not like this advice and may believe that that girl still loves you and that you can approach her again. That will be a mistaken notion that may only hurt you more and make you very disheartened. Let go. If you love somebody, you must let them go and if they are meant for you, they will return ? this is an old adage that still holds true today. Believe me.

These symptoms can be seen in cardiac illness and also in anxiety disorder. So kindly consult a cardiologist and rule out any cardiac problem first and then you can consult a psychiatrist.

Is smoking Marijuana/Ganja Harmful, because I heard its medicine and can even prevent cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Marijuana has both useful and harmful substances. The useful substance will be extracted and formed in capsule forms and will be available in markets for cancer related pain and chemotherapy induced side effects. Consuming it whole may lead to more harm than benefits As it has addictive tendency, may alter behaviour, can lead to hallucinations. So it is not advisable to take thinking it's anticancerous.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

You seem to have invested a lot of time and emotion in this relationship which is why you are going through this agony. Also loving a person doesn't mean that you will get to spend your life with them. People will come and go but will you keep falling apart or will you take charge of your life? a deeper understanding of why this happened and how you can avoid such things later could help you to put this relationship behind you. Don't try to forget it because it'll cause you more agony. Learning from this breakup is one way forward. Also your life is in your hands. You will become what you make of it.

Dear , I can understand your problem. Psychiatric problems are always treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy and counseling. You are taking medicines but not supplementing it with psychotherapy and counseling. In fact, psychotherapy and counseling will help you to quit the medicine and continue without medicines. Please contact me with every detail and I will help you. Take care.

He just listen but utter no words. In school also he has one or two friends. His mother had high hopes on him and if it goes like this he may fail in 12th std. Some friends suggested to ask extra time in public exam after getting Doctor's certificate. But we are afraid that he will be shown as mentally disabled in future certificates. Pl. Guide us what to do in his case.

Sir from the information provided it is understood that child is in 12th grade and having problems in coping in studies. But as a parent I hope you have got the child evaluated for intellectual ability by a Clinical psychologist to know the IQ of child. This will help you know where the child is having problem and then work on those areas. Some child have good intellectual ability but have Learning Disability wherein problem is in reading, writing or maths. Hence an assessment is important before any thing else is decided.

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.

As you rightly said your interpersonal skills may be poor because of devoting too much time in your studies. But, it is no big deal. I think you are nearing completion of the studies you are pursuing now. No need to worry about anything except your studies. Concentrae at successful completion of your studies. Social and interpersonal skills can be developed afterwards.

She probably has postural hypotension. Bp has to be checked in lying and standing position. If it drops by more than 20 mm then she will need medications. Alternatively she may be having multisystem atropy or drug induced bp fall on standing.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Anxiety is the biggest enemy of concetration, when some one is stressed about a exam then till a certain level it is good but if the stress goes beyoned a particular point your performance will come down so the key is to keep yourself in optimal stress so that you can perform better, if the anxiety is too much then you need to take help for it.
