Dear lybrate-user. You are a student. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Green vegetables and nuts are good for memory. Physical activity also helps. Take care.

Dear user. I can understand. Thinking is a complex mechanism and your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and or callisthenic exercise 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, 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. The right brain also indulges in a lot of lateral thinking, which is normally good for creativity. But in your case it will creatively increase the problem and make you more disturbed. 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 the family goes for counseling.

Hi. I can understand your distress. Having severe anxiety is very incapacitating. Having this much anxiety usually results from imbalance of chemicals (neurotransmitters) in brain. As a result, our autonomic system is activated to more than usual level, which produces these symptoms. And these are not fully under our control and require some medication, at least initially, to control them. So, you should consult a psychiatrist who will help you understand your problem after thorough check up (as we need to rule out other physical causes of anxiety as well). We see a marked improvement in people having such symptoms and overall functioning with adequate treatment. So do not delay treatment!

I am smoking for 6 months but I need to stop it. My ambition is join in army, navy, air force is there any problem in future for selection.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE 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. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Homeopathic Treatment For Mental Problems

Homeopathic treatment is not only confined to physical health problems but can also be used effectively against mental imbalances. Some doctors have recommended homeopathy over conventional medicines as the latter carry the risk of adverse side effects. Homeopathy can treat various kinds of mental illnesses including but not limited to bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, and general anxiety disorder. Homeopathic treatment also involves intake of lesser quantity of medicine, shorter stay at hospital and laboratory examinations. What’s more, you could also combine homeopathy with conventional forms of medication.

The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using a holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat mental problems but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to treat mental problems that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints.  For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. There are following remedies which are helpful in the treatment of different mental problems:

  1. Bipolar Disorder- Homeopathic medicine, Belladonna is quite effective against bipolar disorder. This is a condition in which there are symptoms of violent behavior. For example the patient may even strike the person near him for no particular reason. Another symptom for which belladonna works quite well is when the patient indulges in anti-social behavior such as spitting on other people. An alternative medication that is generally prescribed for symptoms like destructive behavior and screaming is Veratrum Album.

  2. Schizophrenia- Hyoscyamus Niger is the recommended homeopathic treatment for a patient who shows symptoms of schizophrenia. The main symptom of schizophrenia is a feeling in which the patient may think that there is a plot against him/her. This feeling may result in the patient avoiding everything offered to him/her, which could potentially include medicine. Another effective homeopathic medicine generally used for treating symptoms of jealousy and suspicion is Lachesis.

  3. Depression- Ignatia Amara has proven to be effective for patients with depression. This homeopathic medicine can treat symptoms such as non-communicative behavior and dull mood along with the inability to enjoy the company of others. Aurum metallicum is typically prescribed if your patients have suicidal tendencies. Carcinosin is generally used to treat chronic and severe forms of depression.

  4. Generalized Anxiety Disorder- If a person tends to feel worried and uneasy constantly for around 6 months or more then he/she may be suffering from generalized anxiety disorder. A medical practitioner could provide an accurate diagnosis. The patient may find difficulty in concentrating and falling asleep. He/she may also get fatigued easily and have frequent urges to urinate. The Homeopathic medicine, Aconitum Napellus is very effective against Generalized Anxiety Disorder wherein the patient may also suffer from frequent panic attacks. Trembling and palpitations resulting from the anxiety can be controlled by the homeopathic medicine Gelsemium Sempervirens. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Please do not loose heart. You are very brave and I am very proud of you that for your parents sake- you gave up your interest and took the subjects they wanted for you. I respect your feelings. And I strongly advise you to -respect yourself. You deserve it. How few children are there who go by the wishes of their parents. You are one of those few! so, be proud of yourself. Next, you could not carry on with their choice. Does not matter at all, because you tried to give them happiness but could not cope with the change. This is perfectly acceptable as we are all like that. Many times we fail to do well in a stream we dislike. I recommend talking it out with your parents, trying to tell them what makes you happy. Seek help of a good counsellor and go for interest and aptitude testing. Based on these question-answer tests you will find your strengths and weakness and get guidance on which stream is best for you. If you want take a private online consultation with me alongwith your parents.

Male 26 yrs, having fear that no one is with me although I live with my joint family of 11 members (including me). Say if I divert my mind in some work then its ok but post completion of that event the same thought of loneliness is on my mind and which makes me cry sometimes. Don't have much friends n which I have are busy in their own lives which is normal. Sometimes I feel like to kill myself but on the other hand I have my family too, also I am newly married but my wife doesn't feel to talk too much or express, she only keep finding demerits in others as she thinks she is so smart n other are idiot. 6 months ago I got married n We have hardly lived 60 days together and if bifurcate the days we had lived together then calculation would be 60 days = 50 days of fighting + 10 days normal (may be). No doubt I am trying my best in this relationship but her words are THE MARRIAGE WAS DONE JUST BECAUSE HER FAMILY HAD FORCED HER. I am emotional guy which means WORDS HIT ME HARDER THEN PUNCHES. Don't know how to get rid of tension. Even I had word with my family in this regards but all of them says it will take sometime to get all issues resolved. My wife is a very good liar, at the time of our marriage she said there was minor injury in her waist but on our wedding night she told me that she is suffering from Pott's Spine/ Bone TB. Although she had recovered alot from that time but if I ask something from her she says I DON'T REMEMBER even she forget what had happen 2-3 days back and take cover and says MAY BE MEMORY IS GETTING WEAK DUE TO THE MEDICINES OF BONE TB. Even after all this I am ready to accept her but she is very careless also had word with her in this regards and she said WE CAN SEPARATE IF YOU WANT BUT I WILL NOT GO MY HOME OR I WILL SUICIDE OR WILL GO SOME ANONYMOUS PLACE WHERE NOBODY WILL KNOWS ME. She's 23 and we both are from different regions I am from delhi and she is from UP but our family background are from same caste and religion, she is educated but I am still not able to trace out why this is happening to me. Usually I talk too much but with limited people but everyone is busy in their own life which good but I need some hope of light for my life. Please suggest me something.

If you are experiencing these symptoms more often, then you need to seek help. These are the symptoms of depression. Also, if you are thinking about harming yourself, you need to tell someone right away. Because depression can drain you of energy and hope, taking the first step can be hard. Start getting help for depression by telling someone how you feel. If you don't have the will to call the doctor and make an appointment, a friend or loved one can do it for you. Your doctor can also decide if you have clinical depression or if your depression is due to another medical condition. Your marital issues will also be taken care during your session with the psychologist or psychiatrist. Getting help for depression starts with reaching out. So please go ahead and seek help.

I'm smoking since 1 year. But I'm giving a gap between the days from the day I'm smoking. Likely if I smoke 2 cigars on Monday again I'll smoke on Friday. Does it effects badly more than a chain smoker? I'm trying to stop but I'm smoking one cigar in a week.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Jagadish, If you are able to give a gap in between, it is good for you. Definitely better than a chain smoker. It is good for you to give up smoking without withdrawal symptoms making you crave for nicotine. Check whether you need to smoke cigar early in the morning. If it is so, you may need some kind of help to quit smoking. Don't use daily a bit of cigar instead of only a full cigar on mondays and fridays.

How to Overcome Stage Fright

How to Overcome Stage Fright

You are about to go on stage to face an audience. Palms sweaty, heart racing and a fear gripping your in such a way that your feet or tongue refuse to move? Relax. You are having a bout of stage fright. The first and most comforting thing to know is that the biggest and most popular performers and speakers also go through a bout of nervousness before their big show. And yet, when you see them on stage, you'll not detect an ounce of it. You can be that person too.

Why do you experience stage fright? Being the center of attention among an audience focused only on you can trigger thoughts of a bad or unconvincing performance resulting in loss of reputation, mockery and a perception of failure. The physical response your body has to this is called "fight or flight" syndrome which is a natural process designed to protect you.

So how do you face the situation and get better of it? Here are a few steps to get you there:

  • Self-hypnosis / Hypnotherapy for stage fright: Imagine if you believed that you are a master public speaker and can feel calm and confident during every performance! A self-hypnosis or hypnortherapy session allows you to reach out into the recesses of your subconscious mind and harness its power to handle stressful situations like a stage performance. You may have heard the common adage of - You are what you believe; and this therapy proves it. The process will help you visualize your actual performance and link it with positive, encouraging and enjoyable images which will replace your anxiety with confidence. You can either visit a consultant or buy a CD online.
  • NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) for stage fright: NLP was created in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California as a connection between neurological process, linguistic and behavioural patterns learnt through experience or programming. NLP claims to cure everything from phobias to depression to even the common cold. Though not scientifically proven, NLP uses a set of mental exercises to allow you to change your perception and blockages and hesitation into positive actions. Similar to hypnosis, it'll allow you to program yourself to believe and practice for a positive outcome in order to achieve it.
  • Add the wow factor: Anyone giving you their time deserves to leave with a 'wow'. Add facts, figures or moves that'll give them that. Add 'your' touch and style to it.

Ways To Deal With Anxiety!

PhD - Clinical Psychology, Diploma in Clinical and Community Psychology, MA - Clinical Psychology, BA - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Ways To Deal With Anxiety!

Anxiety is a common issue with growing teenagers. It is not the typical anxiety before exams or academic projects. It is more than that. Anxiety may be the result of the hormonal changes, which predominantly affect the adolescent years of growth. While your body copes with different changes, your mind tangles between the future liberty and present restrictions. Knowing certain facts about this anxiety trail can help you to cope with it.

1. Anxiety is not always a disease: Anxiety is not always a disease. It is a normal phenomenon among adolescent teenagers. However, in certain cases it may be severe for some teenagers. They may feel crippled with anxiety. Under such cases, one would require psychiatric help.

2. Talk to someone: A great way to relieve yourself from stress due to anxiety is to speak with someone. It can be a friend or someone close to share your thoughts. If you know the reason of your anxiety, share it, discuss it. You will definitely feel better.

3. Take a break: Entertainment and break from academic work and schedule is necessary for teenagers to lower anxiety traits. However, if the anxiety is due to peers, you may even take a break from them and engage in family.

4. Cry out loud: It is not a silly thing to cry when you are stressed under anxiety. Crying is an emotional outburst which essentially relieves the stress due to anxiety and lets you control the emotional disturbed state of mind.

5. Good sleep: Sleep is necessary for both mental and physical rest. You need to overcome from the fatigue of routine works, stressful events, peer factor, etc. Catching the essential 8 hour sleep is a great way to overcome anxiety issues.

6. Don’t be conscious: Anxiety is a common factor among all your peers. You are not the only one coping with anxiety stress. So, take it light. Relax and don’t be conscious about your anxiety problems. Consider them to be temporary.

7. Be confident: Losing confidence under the stress due to anxiety can be even more disastrous. The effects will never be better. So be confident about whatever you do, whether right or wrong. Every person learns from his own activities. Whether right or wrong, everything will give you a lesson. So you will never be a loser, you will win a lesson.

8. Don’t feel stupid: Being stressed with anxiety is not abnormal or stupid. Everything is okay with you, and you are not the stupid fellow out there.

9. You are not weak: Anxiety is not a sign of weakness. You can rather make it your strength. Fight it back and keep your energy and enthusiasm high.

10. Anxiety is temporary: As you move ahead of the adolescent period, anxiety will faint. You will be more confident and matured, able to tackle anxiety. So consider it to be an affair of a few years. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

From past few months I am consuming a lot of liquor. Almost every weekend. I am sure its going to harm my body a lot. Is there something I can do to avoid it as I am unable to control my will power at the moment.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, - Even if you have liquor on the week end restrict it to two pegs at the most as more will lead to harmful effects on the body, also it provides empty calories to the body which in turn leads to increase in weight - have a snack before a drink & also along with it to reduce the intake & the harmful effects - also do not fall for peer pressure, try to restrict yourself by slow drinking & sipping .
