My query is my husband lives in abroad. Daily he masturbates by forcing me to do sex chat. Having 5 year old boy & 5months old small girl baby with being neutral family I find difficult to chat. I am not at all interested to do so. This makes my husband angry & daily we fight. He always threatening about divorce. Kindly suggest me your valuable solution.

Sex chat can be done, if both partner's consent for it. It is completely your decision to do it or not. Try to persuade your spouse diplomatically for his requests. Tip: telephonic chats are better than sms/written chats as there are no documentary evidences which can be used later maliciously by anybody.

Hello lybrate user, some people become uncomfortable to get accustomed to new environments like new people, new course, new syllabus, new food. But this is unavoidable situation to every one, some may not handle better, so this is not a grave problem. You r completely normal, all you need is good friend s, good movies and good books. Don't think too much, that doesn't change any thing. Try to accept the people around. Ever body around us may not be 100% the way we like but we need to see the good side of them and move on. Every body is not 100% perfect. Don't try to stay lonely. Share you problem with you r siblings. Go for evening walk and have bath to get good sleep. I advise you to watch the following video in you tube -' meet nick vijucic. The man with no limbs. Last but not least: never hesitate to consult a qualified doctor along with you r parents if you feel the same for few more weeks. It does not make you a psychiatric patient. Every body consults in this competitive world. Don't use any quack remedies. Keep smiling for few minutes that my consultation fee for typing this message. God bless u, make you r parents proud.

How to remember biology fast. And how to concentrate on study. And how to do smart study.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of aspen + 3 drops of rock rose.+ 3 drops of mimulus. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose) on empty stomach.

You are perhaps suffering from a condition called as phobia which basically means that you are uncomfortable visiting public places. There can also be other undisclosed issues which needs to be discussed. However in the mean time you can continue using the same medicine and feel better. For long run I would recommend you that you also perhaps see a psychologist as they will able to help you with strategies to deal when faced with such situations. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Regular Exercise Is The Key To Fight Dementia, Shows Study!

According to a recent study conducted, researchers found that a healthy lifestyle can help fight dementia. As physical activity will help in stimulating the blood circulation in areas that are at risk. 

Alice Hollamby, study’s lead author stated, "We understand that living with dementia poses many challenges to individuals and their families and the idea of improving their physical fitness may seem like an unachievable target."

And, Dr. Eddy J Davelaar, study co-author, mentioned, "We all know we should embrace a healthy lifestyle to strengthen our physical and mental wellbeing. However, this is not to say that when one develops dementia, all hope is lost."

Also, as per previously conducted studies, it was found that physical fitness may help prevent dementia, the current study further showed that it can ward off further memory loss in patients suffering from it.

13 Symptoms Of Alzheimer's!

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
13 Symptoms Of Alzheimer's!

With age, most body organs begin to deteriorate in their function. This happens to the brain also, thereby reducing the overall speed of functioning of most organs. While slowing of bodily movement is visible, the internal organs functioning also slows down, which is not that obvious. Memory loss or dementia is one of the main manifestations of this degeneration of the brain.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, and the associated symptoms includes reduced reasoning abilities and cognitive defects. Though it is seen only in the elderly, not all elderly people will have Alzheimer’s. The overall quality of life of the affected person is reduced with difficulty remembering things that were recently learned. It is a progressive disease and as it gets more severe, a full-time caretaker may be required.

Causes: The brain cells are affected by protein masses known as plaques and tangles. These hamper the way communication between the brain cells happens as well as affect nutrition from reaching all parts of the brain. This leads to shrinking of the brain, eventually leading to memory loss and other problems. There is also a strong genetic linkage, as most people with Alzheimer’s have the lipoprotein A gene.

Symptoms: Though memory loss is the most common symptom, there are other symptoms:

  1. Being confused about places, people, and times
  2. Inability to find the right words during conversations
  3. Regular objects are misplaced
  4. Becoming irritable, (in someone who was not so previously)
  5. Mood swings
  6. Personality changes
  7. Inability to organise thoughts
  8. Not able to make the right decisions
  9. Repetitive talks and actions
  10. Forgetfulness (not something the person always does)
  11. Difficulty with numbers (again, not something calculations
  12. Difficulty managing everyday tasks and minor problems
  13. Suspicion of others (like immediate family members and friends)

Risk factors: While age is definitely a risk factor, the fact that not all aged people develop Alzheimer’s is to be borne in mind. Other risk factors include the history of stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressurediabetessmokingobesity, and poor lifestyle choices.

Diagnosis: While there is no definitive way to diagnose Alzheimer’s, symptoms along with brain scans and neuropsychological function testing are useful ways to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: This is aimed at two things reducing the rate of disease progression and treat (or reverse) symptoms if possible.

Cholinesterase inhibitors improve cellular communication in the brain and also manage depression and agitation. Memantine is used to slow the pace of disease progression.
In people with the disease, small changes are useful to help them with the symptoms. These include keeping essential things like keys and wallet in the same place, keep a daily diary to help them remember things, keep pictures of friends and family within visible distance. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
