How can I increase my memory? I usually forget things after few days, I'm unable to make remember an iota of things.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Lybrate-user it is always good to do a full body check up, once, every year. Just see a good doctor in your city, do a full body basic check-up. Your general physician will prescribe medication as per your health reports after full-body check-up. All the best.

Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Procrastination is process of putting of things that are important and indulging into not that important things. It is like doing activities which are preferred over activities which are not preferred but important. To stay away from procrastination 1. Identify that you are procrastinating on some activity 2. Find out the reason for procrastination 3. Use strategies against procrastination eg: rewarding yourself on completing the unpleasant task, ask someone to keep a tab on your work, make a to do list. Finally always remember these tips will only help if you work on them there is no substitute for hard work.

Some initial courage is needed, when one has to end any sort of black-mailing. Facing the ill -effect is better than continuous blackmailing, which is like slow poison. You explain it to him that you wish to end it on a happy note. If he is more keen on exploitation tell him, it will also be him and his family, who will have there pride at stake as well. Lastly life never stops, you will eventually find another way. At this time and age, one should not consider it as a fault, despite the social conditioning. Remember you have done nothing wrong, you have a right to say yes and no whenever you want and your family will be more troubled if you carry on with this forceful relationship

Depression - Role Of Homeopathy In Treating It!

Depression - Role Of Homeopathy In Treating It!

Depression is a mental-emotional disorder that reflects signs of severe sadness, pessimism and a general indifference towards life. There are major changes in physical activities as well. It is a little difficult to identify in the initial stages and it can move on to a more serious condition wherein a person turns suicidal. People suffering from depression may intentionally inflict physical pain on themselves as an outlet to relieve their psychological suffering.

Symptoms of Depression-

  1. Loss of interest towards their hobbies.
  2. A laidback, indifferent attitude towards life.
  3. Persistent sadness.
  4. Irritability for causes unknown.
  5. Pessimism.
  6. Sudden weeping outbursts.
  7. Restlessness.
  8. Inability to concentrate on something for a long period of time.
  9. Inability to apply the mind to work.
  10. Lack of rational or logical thinking.

Causes of Depression-

  1. A sad, difficult event in life. For example, a major failure, loss of a loved one, separation from a loved one, a disturbed family life or any other form of tragedy.
  2. Reaction to certain medication that has affected the neuro-transmitters or bio-chemicals present in the brain.
  3. Hormonal imbalance, especially during the peri-menopausal (marked by the ovaries secreting lesser oestrogen) years of a woman.
  4. Any physical disability or chronic illness such as cancer can contribute to depression.

Treatment for Depression-

  1. Counselling sessions with a psycho-therapist.
  2. Consultation with a neurologist.
  3. Spiritual healing through chants, guidance, positive thoughts.
  4. Medication.
  5. Spending time with friends, loved ones.

Healing Depression With Homeopathy-

Homeopathy is a natural and non-toxic remedy for several diseases. The major advantage of homeopathy over other medication is that it does not cause any adverse side effect. It is safe and can be used at all ages without worrying about any detrimental consequence. Homeopathy is known to be very effective in treating depression. Homeopathy medicines are prescribed after a thorough study of the symptoms. Homeopathy first treats the symptoms and then provides relief; for example, the constant mental exhaustion or some unexplained physical pain. It then works on the cause of the disease. In this case, the medicines will affect and treat the hormonal disorders or neurological disorders. Following this, homeopathy medicines will try to prevent the onset of depression in future.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sayings Like masturbation helps to free from stress, get a better sleep etc. But why I am so addicted to it when I am seeing any kind of attractive thing like beautiful or sexy girls I just feels that I want to sex with her and I rushes to somewhere to masturbate and after that it feels me very lazy. I even controls my self but I couldn't. It makes me like I am doing any kind of drugs. And I am so addict a day will not pass without doing this even some days 3 or 4 times. So please let me know any kind suggestion while I can get free from it.

Yes this is clearly a sign of addiction. It is a type of'procedural addiction' masturabation gives you the same high (dopamine high) that a drug of abuse would give. It is safe when it's done under control. You seem to be getting excessively and easily aroused. You need to exert control over your arousal, not on masturabation. When you get sexual thoughts distract your mind with something neutral. Make a list of distractions, like listening to a song, calling someone, thinking about a non arousing topic, looking at different things in the surroundings, etc. Do not go to a place where you can relieve yourself, because every time you do it, your brain gets a'kick' and this action becomes more reinforced. It will reduce gradually. There are medicines available for hyper sexuality, that you can take temporarily while you practice more self-control. Visit a psychiatrist for complete guidance.

Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, the perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

For a diabetic person, it is very important to take medication on time. You also need to have food suggested by your doctor. Regular exercise helps in maintaining healthy sugar levels. If you are going for a walk for 15 mts every day, but if you are skipping your medicines, it wil not be helpful. You need to do both - take prescribed medicines and do suggested exercise every day. You will be harming yourself by not taking the medicines. And in future, you will have to take more medicines and the increased sugar levels will harm your body. So please follow your doctor's advice. Please understand that you will be able to work only if you are fit to work. So do not skip medicines because of work pressure or stress.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

5 steps to a stress free life (part 1)

It is commonly being said and discussed everywhere that a life without stress and worry is impossible to exist. While some of us consider stress as natural, there are others who even say stress is good and some even go to the extent of saying that becoming stressful and worrying will bring us to solutions to problems. While the bandwidth of common views and opinions is vast, it is fair to say that there is no common consensus on the wordstress. We are all confused and misled by our own beliefs, others’ opinions, information from outside sources as well as most importantly, a lack of correct wisdom on the 21st century favourite topic. A shift of consciousness at 5 levels can lead to a stress free life. Let’s take 5 such steps:

Step 1 – relax! it is all happening for the good – when this was told to some worriers, they laughed it out. The demotion at the office, the critical illness, the demonetization, the absolutely negative relationship with my spouse, where nothing but disagreement exists – and you say it is all happening for the good. Spiritual wisdom when learnt makes us relaxed and easy that whatever is happening at the current moment is right. Also, anything happening will strengthen you, make you wiser spiritually and emotionally, is settling negative karmic bondages created by us in the past and making us lighter. Also, most important of all, it is a test for us, by passing which, we will create better future realities for ourselves. So, always remember the slogan – what has passed was good, what is in front of us now is very good and whatever future we create by remaining stable and content in the present difficult situation, will be very very good. Why? because we are born winners! starting the day with this consciousness will make you a self-success story, which you take pride in. 

(to be continued tomorrow …)

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.
