I have lost my concentration towards study. There was a time I use to study daily as I am growing up I lost this habit. How can I get it back I tried meditation but I can't even meditate for 10 min with concentration.

You may have lost that since you have just been through the late adolescence and the hormonal imbalance that follows it. If it is too bad you may need some academic counseling and advice. Learn to develop habits which can form by doing something everyday for 21 days. Then continue the reinforcement for another 7 weeks and you will be done. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 all junk food.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

You will need the medicine as long as the doctor knows that you need them. Now if you want to come off of medication you will need to work with a counselor too so that you develop good coping mechanisms to meet the everyday challenges life. Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! If you stay episode-free for at least three years then the doctor may decide to take you off of the medication!!! You can follow these simple rules too: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Dear lybrate user any medication taken so long will be a mere palliative or suppressive and may lead to side effects too, ocd is related to mental level which is the higher function and needs to be cured by constitutional treatment.

I have a flight fobia. When I entered into the flight I am getting tensed every time. And while the flight gets ready to take off I feel my all pressures from my belly comes to my chest. That time I feel that I do not breath properly mainly while the flight is in air. But while the plane landed that time I feel easy and feel OK. That time I realise may be my feeling of uneasiness comes due to my anxiety. Pls advice how can I overcome from this type of phobia.

Please take Aconite 30 - at an interval of 15 minutes when you are about to take off - perhaps when you reach and have had your seat take the first dose. Also you need to plug your ear with cotton before the flight is read to take off - this can ease your problem.

I have a breathing difficulty problem. Tests like ECG, Stress ECG, 2D ECO, LFT, Chest CT scan are all OK. I was under treatment for depression and was treated with Bupron SR 150, which I had stopped now. I was OK for some time but now problem persists. What next?.

Get a simple breathing test called spirometry done which will reveal any underlying obstructive airway disease like asthma. If you feel like impending doom with muscle spasm during breathlessness then get an ABG done during the episode. Visit with ABG report then.

Hello, the presence of high pitch voice in males is known as puberphonia. It could be caused due to inability of your vocal folds to decend thus causing high pitch voice. You can consult a speech therapist for that matter. Regards.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand the situation you are going through the only person help you is you yourself. Because of one person you can't burden your mind up to the level which take away your peace. Darkness is created by you and you can convert it in to light. Just catch up with your old friends go and do the activities you do earlier. Life means moving on. Don't make your self servant of your thoughts control them. Do one activity stand in front of mirror and say all your thoughts in front of that. Then say I am the best and I love my self a lot. This will really help you in overcoming with your problem. Try this for a week then message me. Life is a gift so never think of sucide again.

Dear Lybrate user Yes therapy has provided great results in any kind of addiction. Addiction is psychological and thus psychotherapy is supposed to be taken. I have had many clients who have got rid off their addiction. As there are some causes for any addiction and until and unless those causes are not resolved the addiction will not go away. Thats the reason many people get addicted again after they come back from deaddiction centers. You can contact me for more information.

Hi lybrate-user, you are such a supportive wife, kudos to you! has he been taking medication, if yes, since how long? may be its time to change the doctor or the medication. People do stabilize after taking right kind of medication. More than that I think he requires psychotherapy from a counselor. Coax him into going to a psychotherapist for dealing with his thoughts and emotions. He might be having negative attitude and thoughts which may come in form of irritability and aggression. So proper emotional regulation is also important. You can give him more green leafy vegetables, salad, fruits- banana's, less caffeine, tell him to start exercising you can exercise along with him or do yoga/ meditation. If the loss of libido is due to medication it can be addressed if there is some other reason, you can share so that we can work on a solution. All the best.

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.
