I have a male child who is 12 years old. Since from the birth he is little hyper active and he is always a slow learner. He does not take interest in his study and he forgets faster. He is not interested in the study. He never forget anything what he has seen in the TV / movie. He has very little patience and gets irritated faster. Consulted a Psychologist earlier and advised for keeping him busy and doing some activities that was done in the center. Now he is getting angry also. Please advise what to do ?

For a depressed person withdrawal is very harmful. You have to make an effort to socialize with people whether you like them or not. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 scorching 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

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.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.

Are phychiartists good enough to cure depression? Or they just waste money? Are psychiatrist drugs trauma free?
Dear Suraj, Psychiatrists are medical doctors who have studied the mind and brain, brain chemicals like serotonin causing depression and developed drugs like antidepressants acting on various neurochemicals. They also know the dose, the effect and the side effect of drugs through many randomized controlled trails of many drugs. If there is clinical depression (not English term depression) and if it is with moderate to severe symptoms, antidepressants' side effect does not matter much. In the last 2 decades more and more antidepressants are coming out with less and less side effects. So far, no antidepressants' side effect is traumatic - they are only a nuisance. Antidepressants are given free in government, CGHS, ESI hospitals and many camps free of cost.

Memory loss is gradual pattren in aging process. But in few poeple, its drastic&quick. Its all depends on person's life style, their past h/o tensions n worries or any shock& their reaction towards such incidents. Some times, these factors will not show impact immediately&as degeneration starts organ or system wise, symptoms like these also will begin. That all depends on as I said earlier. After 50's as its initial stage of geriatric period, as usual in many people mood swings, physical health disturbances all will start due to the changed balance in immunity, harmones, biological/physiological functions. So, in this period (actually from younger age onwards, following some ypga/meditatipn/pranayama/breathing exercises will help to ovrcome all these type of problems engaging on your onterested hobby also will do good. In this age, though you feel like to be alone, you should nt be alone. Try to engage in some communitis like charity, old age clubs etc as per your comfort. Mood changes, depression etc all depends on one's life style, relations with family members (like staying away from children, retiring from job which suddenly make a person feel like to isolated or unoccupied. So try to folllow the above measires will help better.

STRESS -BUSTING FOODS

Stressful events cause our cortisol levels to rise.cortisol causes food cravings, and in women, those cravings tend to be strongest for carbs, especially sweet according to research.

Stress and nutrition have always been linked- it's a fact. Someone with a healthy and balanced diet is likely to be far less than those someone with a poor diet.

Healthy, nutritious food and breathing exercise are the simplest methods for relieving stress.

Food with high vitamin and minerals actively help to reduce stress levels.

Food and drinks that can trigger and aggravates stress includes.

*Tea, coffee, coca, energy drinks.

* Fast foods and takeways.

* Butter cheese.

* Meat and shellfish.

* sugar, alcohol, soda, soft drinks, chocolate drinks.

* Beverages like soft drinks which contain no vitamins and minerals.

STRESS - Busting food how they work:

1.Bowl of oatmeal boost levels of serotonine a calming brain chemical.

2.Complex carbs- All carbs prompt the brain to make more serotonine. whole grain bread, pasta, cereals, oatmeal.

3.Spinach- Too little magnesium may trigger a headache and fatigue compounding the effect of stress.other green leafy vegetables, cooked soybeans, fillet of salmon also high in magnesium.

4.Fish- omega 3 fatty acid found in fish such as salmon and tuna can prevent surges in stress hormone and may help to protect against heart disease, depression, and PMS.

5.Black tea- Drinking black tea may help you help recover from stressful events more quickly than tea drinkers.

6.Avocados- one of the best ways to reduce high blood pressure is to get enough potassium, and half an avocado has more potassium than a medium-sized banana.

7.Almonds- vitamins E to bolster the immune system, plus B vitamins, which may make you more resilient during bouts of stress or depression.

8.Raw veggie- crunchy raw vegetables can help ease stress in a purely mechanical way. Munching celery or carrot sticks help release a clenched jaw that can ward off tension.

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. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

You are just 19 years and you have already given your life away to someone else!!! Believe me this, no one is worth dying unless you are int eh act of saving them. You are too young to give your heart away like this and that too to someone who can believe you. If you have proven untrustworthy, then his lack of faith in you is understandable. But if that it not true, then this boy ahs a problem of insecurity around you and this could be detrimental to this relationship in the long run too. These signs are supposed to be eye-openers and should help you understand and therefore make the right decision to close this relationship now. Love does not secure a relationship, however intense it is. If you cannot make a decision even after this, then you have a weakness and a problem about discernment. So the writing is clearly on the wall: move out of this relationship because it is life-threatening. It is also disturbing your studies and your nature and your emotions. True love is supposed to bring the best out of you two. If it does not like it is now, run away from it.

Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Studying continuously will make your head spin and the very purpose of studies will go waste as you will not be in a position to reproduce whatever you may have learnt over three days. For best output, give yourself short breaks which both you and your body deserve.
