You seem to have lead a life living in fear of many things and looks like it would have hampered your lifestyle and potential to do any kind of activity. Such fears usually start early in life and take deep roots as you grow older. It undermines your self confidence and stops you from achieving your dreams. Are you on any psychiatric medication at the moment or is it happening on its own? I suggest that you see a psychiatrist for your fears and try to reduce them by medications first and later undergo counselling to help you to reduce further by replacing unhelpful thoughts with more encouraging and realistic thoughts that will help you feel more confident, relaxed and secure to undertake some activities which you can enjoy doing. You must not let your fears take control of your life because most of the things that you imagined will happen, actually don't happen. You need to assess situations realistically and take small steps towards building your confidence back.

Hi. I am unable to concentrate for longer time. I can not keep focus for long. Also I sleep in lectures. Please help to increase concentration in studies.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are under some stress and you are not aware of it. Meet with a counselor and sort that out. 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. 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. 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 have a desk job. I have anxiety & panic attacks sooooooo bad my heart goes 100 I really feel like I'm gonna die?
Hello- according to ayurveda, this symptoms occur due to vitiated pitta dosha. If you go for modern medicine, than the doctor will surely prescribe you any anti-depressant or anti-psychotic drugs which have well known side effects on body metabolism. Instead try this safe and effective ayurvedic treatment- a) divya mukta vati 1 bd. B) manas mitra vatak 1 tab twice daily. C) pittahsekhar ras 1 tab twice. D) wear rudraksha / moti necklase to calm your heart (gem must touch the chest portion). E) avoid spicy food and late night workout.

I am suffering from depression since last 15 years. Getting medication but not getting fully cured. Why?
Depression not responding or partially responding to treatment could be due to various reasons. At times depression may become less responsive it resistant to some medications. In that case we need to change the medications to the ones that benefit you. Also we can switch to some other adjuvant therapies that can also help. Many a times depression may be bipolar in origin and turtle r needs to be modifies accordingly

Hi if you really need help, you need emotional regulation for which you need to take therapy. The reason behind your anger and triggers need to be understood by me. You can consult me. Till then, you can try deep breathing exercise. Distance yourself from the situation when you feel angry. count backwards 20 to 1. realize if this situation can be handled differently. Dont worry you can get over it soon. all the best :)

Dear lybrate-user ji, first of all believe in god and have patience, these bad days will pass definitely and again you will feel the joyful days with your family - have faith in your destiny. As per your medical problems - go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's panchakarma therapy. It includes abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of your body - cleansing your body. Also take shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of your body and you will feel light, fresh and full of energy. Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear.

Because anxiety and depression have same serotonin pathways as the cause. Though classified as antidepressants, for anxiety, these are the medications of choice. They can be safely taken on a longer run. Pure anxiety reducing benzodiazepine group of drugs like anxit, restyl, are very harmful on a longer run, in fact the name it self on these by drug companies are misleading. Psychiatrists and neurologists, dont prescribe them on a longer run, but for short term use only. SSRI group can be safely taken for long term

I am an chain smoker and I want to quit it by homeopathic medicines. Please do suggest me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Concentration purely depends on interest, dedication and devotion. First you have to change your attitude so as to cultivate the above three. Nuts and fruits are good for memory. Proper sleep and rest are essential for concentration. Take care.

It is good you realized the fact. It happens because of excessive friendly relations with boys. Sharing problems, mutual contact, excessive privacy, no objections, no risks from law. No one is not suspected your relations. Availability of boys in sex mood. There are so many reasons to be attracted towards boys. Initial days onwards negativity towards girls. Rejection from girls also reason to develop homo sexuality thoughts. Once you do it may be addiction. Your mind repeatedly ask homosex. It is also no cost also. Then you easily go. But in future you may not enjoy with girls. Your life is miserable when you marry. So initial time onwards you please erase thought in your friend. Touch lady skin then you get more satisfaction. Better to make friendliness with girls. Then you enjoy natural sex in healthy manner. So please change your mind set. Enjoy real taste of sex. Ok best wishes.

If you had broken up and you are still thinking about her, it only means that you loved this girl very much.If you were not the one to break up with her, then she has played a game and now you have regrets. The clock cannot be turned back again, I suppose. You are pining for her too much and that can be your weakness that she can either exploit or abuse. This means that you might have entered into a symbiosis and her leaving has become life-threatening. That itself might be the reason for the breakup. Girls want a relationship where independence is respected and there is no clingy behavior. You have got to look into this aspect of your personality. Are you becoming too dependent on the girl and therefore demanding, even if it appears that you are protecting her? This is not a welcome feature for a girl to want to maintain this relationship. If she is willfully meeting with your opponents then the message is very clear : she just does not want you! You must therefore develop yourself to become independent and responsible. Maintain respectful distance. There are three important developments in an individual that creates an autonomous personality: intimacy, awareness, and spontaneity. Of these, awareness is of great importance: it will help you know yourself internally and to also make you conscious of other people around you. Such a person is able to meet his needs and that of the other in a balanced manner. You must learn to do this soon. You are still young and have a lot to learn. In fact when you enter college, you will meet many girls and will interact with them. If you resolve the symbiosis, you will do really well. Meet with a counselor and describe your longings, needs and wants, openly. Take your parents along and let them describe your entire life till now and the counselor will get an understanding of your plight. Remove everything that is a reminder of this girl and start working on your development. Demonstrate how you will look after yourself and work on doing that. Learn independence skills and do a personality development course too. You are still so young that when this relationship started you were only 15 years: too young to get serious with any one. And never get serious with anyone unless all the compatibility issues and the adjustability is really well understood and established.

Hello doctor, my cousin is suffering with schizophrenia. We visited so many hospitals. But the treatment is temporary. She was not recovered. Would like to speak with you before visiting you. Is this problem permanently cured? Please let me know.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Schizophrenia is not curable but you can make the person quite functional when you combine good therapy with medication. The medication may have to be lifelong. Schizophrenia is a very complex and difficult disease to treat, even with medication. All psychotropic medicines have side-effects: that is inescapable. But I suspect that she is depending entirely on medication when in reality she needs to combine it with counseling or therapy. In therapy she will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. She will also learn about emotions and how they can impact her condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip her for life. Talking and sharing about the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand herself and moderate her responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training her mind. Exercise must be a regular part of her life for various reasons. Put her on a productive and strict schedule. The idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure, and more so for a schizophrenic.
