You are under some stress to suffer poor memory. But if you want to get super memory or become a genius you can do the following: One way to reduce stress in an emergency is to puff up your cheek with air pressure and hold it for about ten counts. The back pressure it creates presses the back of your throat where the vagus nerve is present. Because of this pressure it will immediately slow down your heart rate and calm you down since the vagus nerve is directly connected to the heart. If the stress comes back then repeat it until it gives up. 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. 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 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. I am not aware of any medicines available to improve memory, in spite​ of all the claims.

This is clearly an anxiety disorder. Treatment is possible and can be done in many different ways. Medicines alone, psychotherapy alone or a combination of both can be used. We routinely encounter clients with such problems at our center and treat them with good results. It will need some basic evaluation and difficult to suggest it in a brief text. You must consult an expert at the earliest in order to prevent yourself on missing out from many good things in life!

Doctor I have everything in life a good father and a mother n good family and I am 29 year old male but I have some problem since childhood only I am suffering from depression now here only I am showing psychiatric doctor and been on medication. I think my reason behind my depression is since childhood only I am attracted to male I donno why? Does it mean I am gay? Now I am almost came for marriage stage and I do not know I am gay or wht? And another thing is that I do not want to be a gay at all need heterosexual lifestyle so please tel me doctor can I marry a girl and lead a good life? And is it necessary to change the thought process?

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your sexual attraction towards other males is not because of your thought process. It is probably because of your sexual inclination, or some childhood experience and it is your physical need. I can imagine that you are not comfortable accepting this fact. Actually, to find out whether you are gay or heterosexual, it is advisable to talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Some encounters with males in you childhood does not make you gay, but now how you feel matters more. So please consult a counsellor or a sexologist. Till then do not get married, because you will not be happy in heterosexual marriage if you are gay. If in spite of knowing that you are getting attracted to males if you marry a girl, you will have trouble when she will find out. Once your sexuality is understood by you, you are likely to get rid you your depression and anxiety.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing balance while bending down etc can be caused by a variety of reasons. Most common reason is anxiety and obsession. Still I suggest you to consult a physician for investigation and guidance. Take care.

Psychologist, Chennai
Dear lybrate-user, this is not a mental problem. It may be due to some hormonal changes and this is common in this age, you first try to control seeing porn movies and clips. This will mostly occurs while you are alone, so please spend time with your friends and relatives. Concentrate in some other work its also help you to reduce this thought. Try to reduce it, If you can not reduce this activity then consult with psychologist for counselling they will provide you solution.

I am depressed and I am consulting a psychologist. How much time it can take for the treatment?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, I don't know what type of treatment you are taking from psychologist. If it is cognitive therapy it can be anywhere between 5 months to 6 months of weekly sessions. One needs to go step by step in therapy and it takes many sessions. Usually 18-20 sessions will do if you are regular to sessions.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Quitting alcohol is a stepwise process. It is good to know that you accept the fact that you are dependent on alcohol. I need to get a complete information on following lines before I suggest a treatment plan for you - how long have you been drinking, how much daily - do you get problems on stopping or reducing dose of alcohol like inability to sleep, tremors, irritability etc, how often - do you have morning drinks - do you have faced problems like suspicion about people, fear that people will harm you, hearing voices that are unheard by others etc - how many attempts at quitting alcohol you had in past? what were reasons for relapse? what other addictions you have please get back to me with these important details so that we can go ahead. Good luck.

I feel I am depressed. I am employed handsomely but still do not feel job satisfaction. I feel I could have done better as I was always a bright student. I always wake up sad and gloomy. What to do.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Yu have to make up mind to think positively and get satisfied fro life. Read books and listen to music and mingle with good people 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal.

I have some fear to go foreign countries and unknown places. How can I avoid it and what is the remedy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is a combination of the fear of change and the fear of the unknown. Do you know that this is normal and that a lot of people experience this? now because of this there is what is called resistance to change: some people will not venture to go abroad and to unknown places. Now that means it is crippling them. If that is how intense your problem is, then you need to work with a counselor. Often the fear is an exaggeration and there may be some contaminated thoughts that play tricks with your mind to stop you from going out. If you externalized these fears, the other person will give you assuring feedback based on facts and that will help you respond differently. You are missing fabulous trips, and visits to countries and places that offer so much excitement. One trip will prove your theory wrong, and another may reduce it even further. Gradually, the fear will dissipate based on your experience and not on your fantasy.

Hello sir/mam. I love to watch my girlfriend while sex with other. This is my fantasy want to see her sex with other one and in middle I also join. I talked to my gf regarding this. Initially she was not ready but now she turns on when we talk about two men one women intercourse fantasy. She is ready to get sex by two person she is excited too much. Should we go for this? she is my life and I am her life we love each other. We are in a relationship from last 12 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The idea is exciting and may be a huge turn on. If she is your life and you are hers, why would you want to expose it to possibilities! You will put your 12 year relationship to risk and the love of your life too. Let me explain: once this is carried out there is a grave danger that this friend of yours might be more impressive in the bed and she may love that too much to want to give up! Strange things happen when passions are whipped up: she may fall endlessly in love with him and you may be conveniently eased out. He may fall in love with her and look to eliminate you by whatever means he chooses; love being as blind as it is known to be! After this experience she has a choice to make to be with one or the other at her whim, and many things can go wrong with that. You can be in charge of your emotions but never of another. The respect you have for each other and your bodies is now subject to anyone?s carnal desires. Anyway these things do not last and the end result may not look at all what you desired. You need to respect and preserve this relationship with a lot of regard and sanctity and not objectify your girlfriend?s body or her character to such fleeting whims. The choice is yours and my opinion is that it is ill-advised. Just because an idea is fantastic and turns one on does not mean it is safe for many reasons.

Hi I have reading and writing now but after one (or) two days I was forgeting that what I read? Please help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

Hi, lack of energy could be owing to a host of reasons--nutrient deficiencies, sporadic sleep cycles, under-eating and subsequently overeating, dehydration, skipping breakfast to name only a few reasons. To regain energy, ensure you drink ample water through the day and that your meals are wholesome and complete and that your daily diet includes fruits and fresh vegetables. Hope this helps.

Psychologist, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user, Through your query I can interpret that you are very emotional, and its the awesome quality But don't make your quality as your weakness, you need to channelise this energy in positive direction. When we try to hold something very tightly it goes away from us with double intensity. Every relation demands some space and when ever this space lacks in any relation it lead to abrupt end of relation, it cannot last longer. As per many research if we involve in 2-3 activity at a time our energy divides and our dependency on thing decrease, so what you have to do is to involve yourself in other activities whether you are in any relation or not it does't matter ,remain in contact with friends ,relatives ,continue your hobbies, involve yourself in other activities, do yoga ,meditation.

Do allopathic medicines along with counselling or therapy cure anxiety disorder. Or generally how much time it will take to cure this disorder.

MD, Fellowship in Intergrative Medicine, MBBS
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Kochi
Medicine may or may not be required .Counselling is a must. Detailed Medical history, dietary history, stress history are all required to treat the root cause. Anxiety may also be a symptom of other disorders eg -thyroid disease the time taken depends on how long you have this issue and the magnitude of the trigger factor which is causing this issue. Just remember you cannot fix your health without fixing your diet. Take a consult for specific advice.
