Hi Dr. My father is very addictive towards cigarettes. He is now suffering from ear problem because of smoking. What could he do to avoid cigarette.

Paste a big picture of smokers lungs in contrast with healthy lungs. And may be draw a big picture of ear with smoke coming out of it. Place it somewhere where he can see, esp while smoking. Try him to shift to nicotine chewing gums and gradually leave it. Hypnotherapy is also very effective. You may read my health tip on smoking cessation.

Dear lybrateuser. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. The more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are" effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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.

I had taken treatment for depression for 15 years has been found with bipolar mood disorder. I was addicted to alcohol and smoking but now I came totally out of it for past 3 years.

Dear lybrate user, if you were diagnosed with bipolar disorder and depression and if you were on medication for last 15 yrs, it will be harmful if you stop medication on your own. Your present anger and restlessness is a result of stopping this medication. I think, you need to understand your condition. You are going to need medication throughout your life for at least bipolar disorder. Please understand that it is like managing bp or sugar with medicines, where the disease is kept under control, with the help of medicines. Regarding your depression, you may start counselling sessions along with the medication, but you need to discuss with your psychiatrist before you stop medicines for depression. It might be frustrating for you to realise that you need to be under medication, life long; because it has side effects. But please understand that if you stop the medicines, it will cause more harm. Please consult a counsellor at the earliest.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I went through your query in detail and can understand what you must be going through in life. The symptoms that you have mentioned are definitely suggestive of depression. Feeling tired, lack of concentration, feeling sad, anxiety, sleep disturbances, headache are all symptoms of depression. You should consider getting yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist and accordingly initiate treatment. Medications ad psychotherapy will help you in getting over your symptoms and recover from depression. Although you have not mentioned details about the particular incidents, I am sure talking about them to your psychiatrist will help. Talk to someone close daily to vent out your feelings. You can also consider writing a diary daily. Start exercising daily. I do hope that you are soon able to recover from your symptoms. Best wishes.

Kindly accept my deep-felt condolences at your loss especially at such a prime age. Unexpected death is a shock and may take a long time to grieve, completely. I suggest you talk about your feelings to a confidante or counselor to express your grief, even if you have to do it bit-by-bit until it is completely out of your system. The shock may also induce personal fears of dying and death. I don? t know how your son expired but if you are following a healthy lifestyle, you are in no danger. I hope that you are fit and fine yourself. If not, kindly get into a regimen of exercise, rest, diet and stress-free living. Spiritual pursuits are very soothing and calming to your soul, mind and body. So develop some practice around it and attend important discourses. Yoga and meditation are excellent too. Keep good relations with everybody and live a life of love. If there is someone to be forgiven do so immediately. All the talking you can do is the best medicine for you right now to get over your son's death.

Dear lybrate user. Human brain never forget anything unless due to accident to brain or brain degenerative diseases. You are unable to remember because of tension. Reduce tension before going tomschool. Take care.
