I'm 21years old male and I have problem of memory I can not remember things quickly or easily I have to memorized a particular thing to remember so is there any solution?

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
This usually happens when we are depression or any stress. You should start with yoga and meditation exercises. Take proper sleep at night. Avoid spicy fried and junk food. You may also take some ayurvedic drugs which may help you to gain your memory power.

Can I drink alcohol if I'm taking antidepressants? How should antidepressants be discontinued?

Can I drink alcohol if I'm taking antidepressants? How should antidepressants be discontinued?
Drinking alcohol is not prohibited but may interact with medications you are taking and may increase their sedation and side effects on liver. Discontinuation of antidepressants has to be meticulously done according to the case history, remission of symptoms achieved etc under the close supervision of a psychiatrist only.

Respected sir/madam, I am 24 years old student. I do not have study problem. I think I am suffering by anxiety disorder. I am having problem like excessive worry, sleep problems, irrational fears, muscle tension, and digestion problem. Please help me with complete solution. My life is going to worst day by day. Please provide me complete solution. Once I took melzap and sertraline for one month. It feel good that time. But I stopped those drugs and now my condition is bad. Please give me permanent and effective solution. Thank you.

The reason the improvement did not stay is because sertraline should not have been stopped in one month. It should have been continued for five months. This situation is similar to fracture followed by plaster of leg. In two weeks pain reduces, but if you remove plaster and start walking, it will re-fracture. So one must keep plaster for 6 weeks. Once plaster is removed graded physical exercise will strengthen bones and muscles. Similarly, once sertraline is taken for the said duration psychotherapy or specialized counselling may be done to strengthen the mind. Hope that helps!

This is not a good behavior and must be investigated by a doctor, especially because of your age. Withdrawing from people, even if you are comfortable with it, is extremely harmful for human beings, being social animals. The reason for your headaches it seems could be due to an anger-related depression i.e. There is some unresolved anger from the past that needs to be addressed. At your age this claim is serious. There are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention as mentioned earlier. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Actually since 10 years I am suffering from tricotillomania of hair pulling. My parents didn't understand what to do but they used to scold me. I was very much depressed but however I stood first division in matriculation. By god blessing, I completed master in tourism and now I am working for last 3 years in a travel company. But some secrets that I can't disclose to my parents as they are not so friendly and respect them very much. I am in a 8 years of distant relationship. I told everything about ourselves to my parents but after knew he was a muslim, I still accepted him without any hesitation as he promised me he will take care of me and my family. My family is hindu and they didn't accepted our togetherness. But I love both my parents and my love. He is now struggling for govt. Job. I don't know what to do? whenever I want someone behind me I never found anyone of them. I accepted all those hard days and day by day m getting weak by heart and I always try to consoul myself and now I am tired of working and can't concentrate on my work. Please guide me what to do. One thing is sure we both will struggle so that my parent accept us my heart.

This is all stress and worries of life. Issues of love life/future marriage, you are 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 relationship/marriage/life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Because of anxiety disorder can I forget even small things also. I am 26 yrs old.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You will have to address the cause of anxiety to help you overcome forgetfulness. A counsellor will be able to help you gently go through your life experiences and help you discover where anxiety is coming from. It's usually from the future and not feeling ready for some changes that it might bring along with it. Changes are inevitable in life and they will come. It is better to prepare ourselves and face them rather than avoiding them. A counsellor will help you to prepare yourself for the changes that you are expecting so that you feel more confident and in control of yourself. Having a realistic expectation from self and others will be essential. Looking for perfection in self and others also brings anxiety. Working for excellence is less stressful. You can contact me on private chat if you are interested.

I quite understand how difficult it must be to take care of two kids who are going for each other, hammer-and-tongs. In situations where there are sibling rivalries you have to be really careful to handle it without bias or at least appear to be so. Here are a few tips: be rational in any disputes; show that you care for both but more for the person who is right; reason out with both but expect the older one to be both considerate and understanding; teach the younger one obedience to the older one due to the age difference, if she is reasonable; sometimes you let them sort out their disputes by just monitoring the conversation; no violence is to be permitted, ever; no foul language also; settle disputes by yourself as early as possible and never tell them to wait till daddy comes home; do not punish them with physical beatings unless it calls for the same but it should be done with complete control over your own emotions and you need to be very careful what you say when you do so; do not compare the two with each other or with other people you know; and reward them when they are deserving with verbal or material forms of recognition. However much you show love to both of them equally (which is really not possible actually) both will claim that you love the other more. If they can justify that accusation, you must accept it and act accordingly. If they cannot justify it just ignore those comments. Never hesitate to apologize if you are wrong for any reason (they will really get overwhelmed by that). In terms of consequences (i like that term instead of punishments), use the following proven techniques: stick one or both in the corner of the room facing the corner and let them be there until they are ready to deal with the situation by giving you a very good explanation for their behavior; let them do a chore that is related to the crime; deprive them of tv, if they cannot agree amicably on a program with which you can help them initially; make them write a sentence several times that is meaningfully connected to the event; deprive them of chocolates, sweets etc. For a limited period of time and do specify that time; never give them unending consequences or undefined in terms of time or frequency; at the end of each such successful confrontation show them that you love them but do not do it from guilt, even if you feel really sorry for them; never, never, ever reject them whatever you do or say; and confront the behavior and not the person. Your daughter is in her early teens and will need special attention. She may display certain abnormal behaviors in which case, she is indicating that some unresolved childhood issues are surfacing seeking a resolution. Be there for her in a special way and if you know of any unresolved issues yourself do talk to her about it and help her out of it. If anything gets too serious, meet a professional counselor and work in league with them. Be in touch with their teachers and you will be surprised with how much more they know and how it is possible to work with them to help both your kids. But do not be a complainer to the teachers and in no way should you embarrass them in front of those faculties. Your disciplining is with motherly nurturing and do not hold that back for any reason. Involve the father where his role as a man is required and the kids will know that you both work together as parents for their welfare. There is so much more but space does not permit going into too much detail.

This seems to be a suicide attempt by your wife. Take her to a psychologist at the earliest for emotional support. Please go for couple therapy to resolve your marital issues. There could be chances that she will try to attempt suicide again. Please take care and take suitable steps.

I am 40 year old and use rajni Gandhi without tobacco and now my mouth not fully open it should be cancer tell me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, keeping zarda or pan masala in mouth can cause injury leading to fibrosis. Even injury from sharp teeth or ill fitting dentures may cause fibrosis, leading to a premalignant condition called submucosal fibrosis where the mouth opening is reduced as checked by number of fingers easily going in mouth between teeth. You must quit any kind of addiction, check with oncologist or ENT surgeon for any ulceration or even white or red patches, and consume antioxidants and preparation with lycopene. Do not ignore as cancer is increasing very fast.

I am a 20 years old student how I can manage my studies burden?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

My friend is a regular chain smoker he smoke more than 20 cigarette per day. I want him to leave smoking. What should be done. Any advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is indeed a very noble thought that you want to help your friend. However, it is now very clear that in any addiction, the addict must want to stop the habit himself for any success. All you can do is keep advising him, but also highlight the dangers of tobacco smoke with correct information. And believe me that it is indeed very scary. One thing that hits a lot of youngsters, boys in particular, is that you will lose your erectile capacity and over a period of time even your sexual potency can diminish. And of course everyone has heard about cancer, which is very frightful. You could take him to any police station or cancer hospital to view the condition of cancer-caused disfigurement and it is horrific. These things do help in dissuading people from smoking. In other words, create awareness such that it works as a deterrent to further smoking. You would have done him a great favor.

Hello Sir/madam Few days back One of my friend, s friend gave me a spiritual (panic healing) healing. I think it, s a hypnosis kind of healing. She made me sit by closing my eyes. Asked me to think about what is bothering me in life. I did so. I was fully aware of my body though. She put the CD of Om shanti Om. After doing all the spiritual healing she asked me to go and sleep. And she left. Since that day I started getting some flying and out of the body dreams very often. Which scared me in the night Sir! Kindly let me know Sir how to get rid of these dreams. I spoke to her she said you are born again now do forget your past. Kindly let me know is there something in the healing to worry about? Are it, s a normal thing after this healing? Thanks a lot regards

I am not aware of such spiritual healing. Healing is always supposed to calm you. I would suggest that you talk to a close family member or friend. Sleep with your mother or sister and pray before you sleep. Be confident...these things cannot disturb you for a long time. I am sure you will get over it very soon. Do talk to me if you need any counselling or just want to share your fears.

Homeopathic Remedies to Help You Manage Stress Symptoms, Before Stress Manages You

Stress affects every aspect of our lives. It does not allow you to think or focus on anything else, tempts you to binge eat and takes control of your lifestyle. Stress can also cause severe health problems that can result in heart disease. Thus it is very necessary to learn how to control and manage stress. Managing your stress effectively can help you cope with it better and let your remain in control of your life.

Homeopathy is based on the belief that the mind and body are connected. Thus by treating one, the other can benefit as well. Thus when prescribing a form of treatment for any health condition, attention is always paid to the mental state of the patient. Homeopathy can be very effective in treating and controlling stress and stress related problems. When treating stress with homeopathy, it is essential to first understand the cause of stress.

Some common homeopathic remedies for stress are:

  1. Arsenic Album: This is usually prescribed to people who are generally anxious and nervous. People affected by the stress of being late for an event or meeting can also be given this remedy to ease the stress. Patients who benefit from this form of treatment are also often hypochondriacs who constantly feel that every minor symptom is a sign of a major illness.
  2. Bryonia: This is very effective remedy for all kinds of stress. It can also be used to treat stress triggered by uncertainty at the workplace and insecurity about not having enough money even though they work very hard.
  3. Calcarea Carbonica: This is also a common homeopathic remedy for work place related stress. People who are concerned about being observed or stressed by an upcoming deadline can be benefited by this medication. This type of stress can commonly be seen at the time of appraisals.
  4. Staphysagria: People who are extremely sensitive and feel that the world is unjust and unfair to them cab be benefited by Staphysagria. This is often faced by children bullied in school and people in corporate work environments. Staphysagria boosts confidence levels and thus makes the person feel less vulnerable.
  5. Ignatia: Emotional stress is very well treated by Ignatia. This homeopathic remedy addresses feelings of disappointment and guilt and stress that follows an emotional loss such as the loss of a loved one or breaking up for a relationship. It also fights the desire to withdraw from family and friends and moodiness.
