Dear, 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.

Some times the periods may get delayed naturally. Sometimes the use of pills also may interfere with the natural rhythm .Still one should be careful about the overall health including the menstrual periods. Its better to get an annual checkup by a gynaecologist who can also suggest a healthy life style for protecting health from diseases.

I feel that some one is coming behind me to kill me in my dreams daily, Is it some kind of illness?

I feel that some one is coming behind me to kill me in my dreams daily, Is it some kind of illness?
No, it is not an illness. Your dreams reveal what is in the unconscious mind and in this case it is indicative of some danger to your life. Even if it not danger, this is certainly a manifestation of fear. If you are aware of this fear then talk to a counselor and as you deal with it these dreams may disappear. Dream interpretation is so subjective that it could men that you are very close to completing a difficult task, or that there is impending danger to not doing something important, or that you need to push yourself to complete an important decision or job.

I am sure there are other symptoms and this is rather serious and you should visit a doctor and a counselor and work with both in tandem for the best results. At her age, this may be more complicated but something can be done with medication and counseling.

Two drinks a day for a male person is okay subject to his being in good health otherwise and is exercising. Tolerance does change with age: you can stand only lower dozes.

A lot of people have tremors, mostly without any major reason. Anxiety increases tremors. So to reduce them you need to relax. First thing you need to work upon is try not to worry about the tremor itself! let it happen. It's no big deal. Next, practice simple relaxation techniques like slow and deep breathing, imagery, etc. Learn muscle relaxation. Once practised, you can apply these techniques in public to further reduce your tremors.

That looks like an irrational thought. Challenge it with rational thoughts and logic. Everyone has tension and worry. Prioritising, time management, and critical problem solving will help you to regain your lost confidence and courage. Please go for counselling sessions.

Dear, Weight loss in itself is tricky and a dogma. If you worry yourself and try to hard to reduce your weight and proovide a time limit for it, by strict following, you may loose weight. But it will be in the expense of peace and health. You will be stressed. Try to be happy and do your duties and you will start loosing weight. Alter your habit one by one. For a week reduce sugar in tea and enjoy it. Next week run for a mile and enjoy it. Start cultivating healthy habits and stick to it. Slowly you will loose weight. That is the correct procedure. Take care.

I want to quite smoke. But iam not able to do this. Please help me to live as non smoker.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

Habitual smoking or chain smoking increases the Tar content in our lungs thus decreasing our lungs Air spaces called Alveolar sacs.Due to this decrease in air spaces,we cant exert much as our lungs cant carry more volumes of air due to decreased lung spaces.This leads to shortness of breath when we exert thus loosing our stamina.So to increase stamina,the first and foremost thing a chain smoker should do is ti quit smoking cigrattes and start doing morning cardio exercises or breathing exercises to increase lung spaces.It sounds very easy but my friend it is not that easy as it requires a lot of Determination and will power because you will have to face a lot of challenges while quitting this habit and you must have to be head strong.Once you quit your smoking habit,the things will automatically becomes easy for you.

I received HEPATITIS B VACCINE on my left shoulder almost four years ago back then I was a regular at GYM- used to lift 100 kg without much unease used to do treadmill walking without getting exhausted no persistent pain anywhere in the body. Post vaccination, I started experiencing various ACHES AND PAIN - started with left shoulder pain spontaneously (just the left not the right) making me unable to lift even half the weights i.e. 50 kg (used to lift 100 kg earlier). Thereafter series of unexplained pain started my toes began to hurt while walking - sometimes left and sometimes right. The pain isn’t there at rest. I am sure it is not due to shoes, as the pain occurs irrespective of the type of shoes I wear. Following the vaccination, there is also perceivable significant LOSS IN STAMINA I experience breathlessness in the initial phase of walking on the treadmill - earlier I used to walk on treadmill for quite some time with ease. There is persistent feeling of fatigue exhaustion which does not alleviate with rest. There is presence of persistent dry cough which cannot be accounted for. Also, to add on, there is a constant pain that I experience in my LEFT UPPER ABDOMEN in a specific area while I am seated. Hence I feel very uncomfortable whenever I am sitting on a chair or a couch, or in the bus. The pain I perceive is connected to posture and a change in the same eliminates it which makes me feel that it is muscular in origin. There is absolutely no abdominal pain when I am standing or lying down. No pain medicines have helped so far. I am sure the cause does not lie in the digestive tract i.e. Stomach, small intestines or large intestines as I don’t have any indigestion problem. My appetite is just fine, I eat well and at proper times. To summarise my agony- I was absolutely alright and pain free 4-years ago before I received the HEPATITIS B VACCINE, used to work out regularly. But now, I am left debilitated, feel tired all the time.

This is an unfounded fear of people developed from sometime in your childhood perhaps or because it could be a family trait or behavior. We are all social animals and need to learn to live and be with people all through our lives. If this is crippling you, you need to meet with a counselor and sort out this fear of people. The counselor will guide you and help you will some measures to build self-image, self-esteem and to learn to love yourself. You need to believe that people are basically good and the threat you envisage may be ill-founded on some misconstrued notion developed over many years and experiences. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. 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 upon now. Accordingly, you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and will 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, 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. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too, though not to this extent! There are three important developments to have to create an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy, and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social panic to disappear from your life for good.

Will there will be a cure of schizophrenia or chemical imbalance in brain in 3 years of time.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, schizophrenia is a chemical imbalance within our body and there are many reasons for such an imbalance. Treatment depends on many things including heredity and present life style. Because of the breadth of the problem, effective treatment always focuses on management of the symptoms rather than cure. The best thing you can do is not to think about cure, but concentrate on management. Once you learn how to manage schizophrenia, cure happens. Talk to your psychiatrist in detail and work with him. Take care.
