Supplements cannot substitute for a healthy diet. Have a balanced meal with dal, curd, fresh seasonal vegetables, sprouts, fresh fruits and milk . Have at least 2 litres of water everyday and exercise to improve your metabolism . All this will help you gain strength and also improve your concentration.

Prevention of Seizure

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Chennai
Since the cause of epilepsy is often unknown, it can't be prevented, but the seizures associated with epilepsy can be.

Seizures can occur for a number of reasons and often they can be prevented. One common cause of seizures is epilepsy, and in most cases, seizures associated with the condition can be prevented if you know what's triggering them and take steps to modify or avoid those triggers.

Epilepsy Causes, Treatment, and Prevention

Epilepsy — a disorder in which a person has recurring, unprompted seizures due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain — affects an estimated 50 million people worldwide. In about half of those people, the cause of the epilepsy is unknown. Among the other 25 million individuals, the cause may be a defect in the structure of the brain, a tumor or stroke, or a severe head injury — the most common known cause in young adults, according to the Epilepsy Therapy Project. Therefore, it's important to protect your head with a helmet any time you're engaged in an activity in which your head could be damaged, such as playing a contact sport like football or riding a bicycle, all-terrain vehicle, or motorcycle.

There are several medications that can successfully treat and manage epilepsy and help keep seizures to a minimum. Anticonvulsant drugs can work if taken correctly. In some cases, a low carbohydrate, high-fat diet known as the ketogenic diet may be prescribed to help treat children with epilepsy and prevent seizures.

Know Your Triggers, Prevent Seizures

Epileptic seizures are often associated with particular triggers or changes in your daily habits or routine. Here are some common behaviors and factors that may trigger an epileptic seizure:

.Stress, anxiety, or other emotional issues
.Alcohol or drug abuse or the process of quitting alcohol or drugs
.Change in sleep schedules, feeling very tired, or significant sleep deprivation
.A change in medications, or skipping or missing a dose of .anti-seizure medication
.Something that overstimulates the senses, like lights that flash brightly, watching television, playing video or computer games, or working on a computer
.Hormonal changes in women, often from pregnancy or menstruation
.Mental strain, such as from solving complex problems

You can't always predict what will trigger an epileptic seizure; sometimes they'll occur for no apparent reason. But many people are able to see a correlation between certain behaviors and their seizures. By taking steps to minimize these factors, you may be able to prevent seizures.

Seizure Prevention Tips

Here are some tips that may help reduce your risk of having an epilepsy seizure:

Get plenty of sleep each night — set a regular sleep schedule, and stick to it.
Learn stress management and relaxation techniques.
Avoid drugs and alcohol.
Take all of your medications as prescribed by your doctor.
Avoid bright, flashing lights and other visual stimuli.
Skip TV and computer time whenever possible.
Avoid playing video games.
Eat a healthy diet.
Until more is known about the causes of epilepsy and how it can be prevented, your best bet to prevent seizures associated with epilepsy is to avoid the things that can trigger your seizures. This can make a measurable difference in the number of seizures you have.

Mai kuch bhi padhai karne ke baad jaldi bhul jata hu aur mera memory power bhi bahut kamzor h so please help me.

Dear 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. Take care.

Clonotril is a benzodiazeine. It has addictive potential. Talk to your doctor to wean off clonotril and try on something else which is non-addictive.

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 her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Write few lines on how and what you feel when he acts possessive. If you too feel good then he will no longer be depressed but if hinders your well being then he will learn to adjust to what you write. He will try to give you good and better feelings in others ways.

Sir, I am 21yrs old male. I'm continuing b.Tech. I could not understand my problems. I have very serious problem. But I have no one to discuss my problem. Daily i'm trying to sleep at night but I couldn't sleep. When I am going to bed I feel so uncomfortable. It means I couldn't control my sexual activities. Like I am holding pillow to sleep. Some other things also runs on mind which I can't say. From last 3 years I have some bad habits. Like watching porn, smoking cigarette. But from last three months I have left one activity which is watching porns. But still i am going through same problem. There are so many pressure on my head. As I am only one earning member of my home. My father left me from 2006. And another thing I have broke a relationship from last years due to some family issues. But till now I could not forgot her. Everyday I am trying to forget her but I couldn't. So for this I couldn't handle the pressure. Plz help me.

Dear, I sincerely opine that your current stress is self created obsession. Sexual fantasies, masturbation, watching porn movies etc are not sin and is good in many ways to deviate our minds from stress. Smoking cigerettes are bad for health. You should stop it. I think you are worried about something else rather than the sexual problems or relationshop problem. You need to be more clear and precise. I will help you to overcome your problems. Be brave. Take care.

What do you think is the reason of your blankness? it is just fear. Fear of negative outcome and it is funny it will hamper your performance. If you do not overvalue the interview and the interviewer, and do not give a damn to the result of the interview. You would be soon sitting in the company's office as an employee! take counseling if you need help! all the best.

This is a sign of stress and your mind will wander frequently because of this. Meet with a counselor and sort out that stress. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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 too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

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.

I am not able to relax. My mind feels bruised from inside. I am not able to enjoy with friends. In the morning after sleep also mind feels bruised and exhausted. My mind gets hanged over pity things. I got a CT scan and the neurologist said everything is OK. He prescribed medicine, but it was tough to work in office after his medicine. Today after 10 years of suffering, the problem is only getting worse.

Dear lybrate-user, You seem to have hypothyroidism and diabetes mellitus also. Both these disorders may cause depressive disorder and anxiety disorder at some point of time. They also need treatment in collaboration with a psychiatrist. Please request your physician to do the same or refer. You are lucky that neurologically you are OK and CT scan is also OK. That means there is nothing wrong in the brain structure and blood supply. But brain chemicals are not shown in CT scan and neurological examination. The psychiatrists are able to diagnose them and treat with appropriate tablets in addition to thyronorm and gluconorm. You will feel much better and your quality of life will improve. All the best.

Me and my boyfriend are in relationship from 1 year. We truly love each other. But he already said that he can't marry me as his parents will never agree for love marriage and after completion of our studies i.e. After 1 year, his parents will arrange his marriage. I am very much attached to him. Should I break up with him or should I remain in relation with him until he get married after 1 year? Please suggest.

Dear lybrate user. You don't have to worry about it now. Your mind knows he is going to marry another person in near future. Automatically your mind will adjust with the forth coming event even though you don't agree. You will be in normal relationship with him, but your mind will see only friendship. Go ahead. Take care.

You are distracting from your aim. It shows weakness of your mind and nothing else. Just control your mind and think about your future. Studies is the easiest way to attain success and sometimes even glory. You will realise my words after few years. Just concentrate your mind on your studies and be focused because you will be known by your own name only after you attain heights and studies is a short cut to attain new heights. So always keep this in mind and target your goals, you will never forget. I will help you in this direction by prescribing you homoeopathic medicines------------------------------ bacoppa monneri (wilmar schwabe india) chew 2 tab twice daily------- bren-up (allen) drink 2 spoon 3 times daily-------- bramhari pranayam daily for 15 minutes ------------ report after 30 days--------------------

If they are stress related, the hair will grow back as soon as you reduce your stress and live healthily. If there are other issues that got triggered off because of this breakup, then you are well advised to look into them now. Sdtress is bad for anyone for that matter. If you take care of yourself physically, emotionally, mentally, socially and spiritually, stress can wish you goodbye, forever.

On the positive side, confusion only means that you have many options. If you have too many, then there will be a problem of choice. But if you are habituated to stay confused even in the midst of good choices, then you may be obsessing and becoming indecisive. If you are not able to chose, then find someone whose opinions you trust to see what his/her choices will be and for what reason. That will help you. Since you had depression, there may be residual effects of depression and anxiety that needs some attention. I suggest you meet with a counselor and get some help to reduce anxiety and depression and help make healthy choices decisively.

Hello From the details given and from the nature of pain described it is more unlikely to be a cardiac. Pain. But given the high cholesterol and Triglycerides you have a risk factor for getting cardiac issues .So take a baseline ECG. Nothing to worry. Please change your food habits Stop all dairy products stop animal products unless it is grass fed meat and organic. Go on a plant based diet if you want to stop your cholesterol medications eat a high fiber diet sleep for 8 hrs do daily exercise what is the stress issues you have .Is it at work or home I am a lifestyle and wellness physician based overseas. If you want specific advise take a consult. Remember You cannot fix your health without fixing your diet.
