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.

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.

Hello, There are few food items 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. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers.

How can we reduce over thinking and flashbacks and boredom. Feeling confused about anything. Doubt the life's Decision. Why can't we let go.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Vadodara
HI Minakshi.. This are many ways.. like changing our association which is very crucial.. it depends on with whom we associate.. they have very deep influence on our mind. Second thing is occupying our mind in productive or creative activity and accomplishment of which gives us self satisfaction. Third... sometimes the flashbacks or past matters keeps us disturbing as we left it in the middle.. so you may finish it either way by talking through.. And sometimes homoeopathic medicines help us to vent the inner conflicts..

Dear lybrate-user, during pregnancy and for about a year after your delivery you have certain hormones that are in excess in your body which make you feel more emotional. Don't worry, your condition will improve, slowly. First focus over your body's healing and take care of your baby well. Walk for 10-15 minutes, everyday and take light, non-oily and non-spicy food. You will see a differnece in a couple of months. Good luck.

I have real problem with my concentration. I can't remember what I read nd not able do better in exams. What should I do get my concentration?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The proverbial exam fever is capable of causing a lot of stress. Stress is not a good indicator for studies. Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 are 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.

I am suffering from OCD for the last ten years. Can you suggest what should be done?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (ocd) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to" clean off the germs" however, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (cbt), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (ssri) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of ocd greatly. Kindly consult a psychiatrist.

Hello lybrate-user irshad pre-mature graying of hair is mainly genetic. Unfortunately theres very little we can do to make the natural hair colour to return. Vitamin b 12 deficiency or thyroid related are few other factors that can cause graying.

I am very short tempered sometimes I feel very depressed. My mood get change very soon is it common?

Ph.D - Psychology, M.Phil - Psychology

I am very short tempered sometimes I feel very depressed. My mood get change very soon is it common?
This is due to underlying tensions, frustrations that you have suppressed inside you. If you can take sessions with a psychologist you will be able to find the reasons and cure. You can begin by an online consultation with me from the comfort of your home/office and talk about your problem in a totally confidential manner. Online consultation will help you to assess for yourself if you at all need to go for face to face treatment or a video chat from your room/office is good enough. If you find an online consultation helpful, you may continue with it.

I am a OCD patient I have been taking paroxetine cr for the last 6 and half years. I have adjusted to this tablet and it's working for me since ocd is a chronic illness I want to know to know whether this tablet will work for me throughout my life. As I heard about drug tolerance is there such in psychiatric drugs.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Yes there are chances of tolerance and variable response. Also the medications come under scheduled drugs and it is illegal to get the same without prescription. So consult your psychiatrist and take them as advised. All the best.

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.

I am a 20 year old male. From the past 2-3 years I have been having a problem where I would feel that everybody is constantly looking at me and judging me negatively. From the last 1 year I have started panicking. Whenever I go out I feel that everyone is judging me, when I interact with people I constantly think that they must be thinking this and that about me and I try to be nicer and nicer to them which harms sometimes because they dominate me.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.
