Hi Indian food which help to increase memory power? And some fruits and vegetables that give brain high power.

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
1.Take balanced diet with proper combination of carbohydrate, protein and fat. Avoid diet high in saturated fats like red meat, whole milk, butter, cheese, cream, ice cream etc which hampers memory and concentration. Take complex carbohydrates like whole wheat bread, brown rice, oat meal, high fiber cereals, lentils, whole beans etc. Avoid processed foods like pasta, potato etc 2. Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits and drink green tea since they contain anti oxidants which enhance memory 3.Go for regular physical exercise like brisk walking, jogging, cycling etc for 30-45 minutes daily 4.Take some mental exercise like doing cross word puzzle, problem solving exercise, playing chess etc 5.Develop some new hobby and skill like learning music, dancing, playing new game etc 6.Take adequate rest. 7-8 hours of sound sleep in the night is required to remain healthy 7. Avoid alcoholic beverages, caffeinated drink, smoking and consumption of tobacco etc. 8. Develop healthy relationship with friends, relatives, family members for good emotional health 9. Avoid stress, anxiety, depression, agitation, severe physical and mental exertion 10. Focus on one task at a time rather than focusing on multiple task 11. Practice yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control emotion, increase concentration and enhancing memory.

Improve Your Brain Power

3 smart tips for brainpower

If you're serious about improving your memory and your cognitive function, you need to know about these three important variables for brain health.

Vitamin D

Activated, vitamin D receptors increase nerve growth in your brain, and researchers have also located metabolic pathways for vitamin d in the hippocampus and cerebellum of the brain, areas that are involved in planning, processing of information, and the formation of new memories. In older adults, research has shown that low vitamin d levels are associated with poorer brain function, and increasing levels may help keep older adults mentally fit. Appropriate sun exposure is all it takes to keep your levels where they need to be for healthy brain function. If this is not an option, a safe tanning bed is the next best alternative, followed by a vitamin D3 supplement

Intermittent fasting

Contrary to popular belief, the ideal fuel for your brain is not glucose but ketones, which is the fat that your body mobilizes when you stop feeding it carbs and introduce coconut oil and other sources of healthy fats into your diet. A one-day fast can help your body to "reset" itself, and start to burn fat instead of sugar. Further, it will help you to reduce your overall calorie consumption, which promotes brain cell growth and connectivity. As part of a healthy lifestyle, however, I prefer an intermittent fasting schedule that simply calls for limiting your eating to a narrower window of time each day. By restricting your eating to a 6-8 hour window, you effectively fast 16-18 hours each day. 

Gut health

Your gut is your " second brain" and your gut bacteria transmits information to your brain via the vagus nerve, the tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem into your enteric nervous system (the nervous system of your gastrointestinal tract). There is a close connection between abnormal gut flora and abnormal brain development, and just as you have neurons in your brain, you also have neurons in your gut -- including neurons that produce neurotransmitters like serotonin, which is also found in your brain and is linked to mood. Quite simply, your gut health can impact your brain function, psyche, and behavior, as they are interconnected and interdependent in a number of different ways. In addition to avoiding sugar, one of the best ways to support gut health is to consume beneficial bacteria. You can use a probiotic supplement for this, but i'm particularly fond of using fermented vegetables, because they can deliver extraordinarily high levels of beneficial bacteria. Most people aren't aware that in a healthy serving of sauerkraut – two to three ounces or so – you're getting the equivalent of nearly 100 capsules of the highest-potency probiotic you can buy. It's clearly one of the most cost-effective alternatives.

You are into an abusive relationship and there may be other problems that make you still remain in such love with the abuser. You may be needing abuse as a way of feeling wanted anyway! The boy does not sound a suitable match for you. But if you are still unable to come out of this relationship I suggest you meet with a counselor and get some guidance as to how you can deal with this situation. There must be love, respect, and commitment, and he must bring out the best in you. You are not even prepared for he exams and busy caught up with boy who is causing the depression. It sounds all wrong and you must either get out of this relationship or go for counseling.

My close friend is a retired person. He gets lot of love and respect from his family. His family loves him intensely. His family is quite literate and can handle any situation after his death. He has started feeling that his life is now useless just because whatever he can do today, his family can also do so what is the use of him to be in this world.

It's great that your friend successfully completed all his responsibilities and the whole family loves him. Now he could get involved in social work either individually or in association with others or through some ngo to give something back to the society. This will give him a sense of purpose and satisfaction for further life. Hope this answers your query. Thanks.

Hi sir/mam myself bharath n im 27yrs old. From past 5 yrs im smoking cigarettes in an average 5sticks a day. And now I decided quit this. And I tried 2 times to quit that but I can't.. During that time I felt lazy, weak and anger. So I need your help to quit. Is there any procedure to quit or any medicine.. please refer me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Nicotine gums are just an aid and need not be mandatorily used. You may use nicotine patches if you want any help to curb the physical urge since nicotine is the dependency causing substance in tobacco smoke. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

It is not good to use medicine for small reasons. It leads to some other problems. It has a chance to effect to side effects. Better to change the friend circle. Or make a very good friend with another one. Spend most of the time with remaining friends they are not related to him. Develop a very good new friends. Talk some of them. Who may have a positive opinion on you. Express your all internal feelings and problems with family members and close friends. Do not be alone. Develop a very good busy schedule. Visit remaining friends homes or relatives homes etc. Visit temples, parks or very new places. If it is possible better to change the place. Spend most of the time in happy mood. Better to remove his memories in your books. Do not think his name and others. Give suggestions that I am always well and I have no problems. Feel always confident and comfortable manner. Be sociable and be happy. Ok all the best.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You need to describe these symptoms immediately to your doctor. You need to also meet with a counselor and learn certain skills to cope with everyday happenings. The medication you are on needs to be closely monitored and if there is any change in behavior, you must report the same to the doctor. Other than that you need to put yourself on a tight time schedule and follow it regularly. You must do vigorous exercise and include Yoga and meditation. Please eat healthily, and get enough sleep every day. Do not withdraw and keep a social life that is active and with lots of friends. I hope you are either working or studying. Don?t let this condition make you dysfunctional. The mood swings and blank moments are not a good sign. So a review and follow up with the doctor is due.

Dear, quitting drug addiction is not child play. De-addiction therapy is an option for you. But in my suggestion, the best option would be, quit it now (today) and sustain it with your will power. Motivation therapy and mind power building therapy should help you. Take care.

Fregoli Syndrome Vs Capgras Syndrome - Causes + Symptoms

MBBS, M.D Psychiatry , Diploma in Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Navi Mumbai
Fregoli Syndrome Vs Capgras Syndrome - Causes + Symptoms

Fregoli syndrome and Capgras syndrome are psychological disorders which cause the patients to develop delusions regarding the people around him and his social interaction. They are called delusional misidentification syndromes (DMs). Both conditions are extremely rare and are believed to develop in patients who already have other psychiatric disorders. The two conditions can be compared in the following ways:

  1. Nature of the disease: Patients with Fregoli delusion believe that the many people around him or her are actually the same person in many different disguises. Capgras syndrome, on the other hand, causes the patient to think that someone who he or she interacts with on a daily basis has been replaced by an impostor.
  2. History: Fregoli syndrome was discovered in 1927 in a woman who thought her favorite actresses were disguising themselves as her friends, her employers and even strangers. The doctors named the condition after Italian entertainer Leopoldo Fregoli who did excellent impersonations of contemporary political figures. Less than 50 cases of the disorder have been reported worldwide since then.

Capgras syndrome was discovered in 1922 by French psychiatrist Joseph Capgras. The patient claimed that identical impostors had taken the places of her husband and some of her friends. This disorder is seen more commonly in women than in men and has more reported cases than Fregoli syndrome.

What causes it?
Fregoli delusions can be caused by severe injury to the temporal and parietal areas of the brain or other neural pathways.

Capgras syndrome has more complicated neuroanatomical causes. It is often seen in patients of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia and sometimes in patients of bipolar disorder and paranoia.

Symptoms behind them
The symptoms of Fregoli syndrome are delusions, visual and auditory hallucinations, cognitive defects, problems in visual memory and motor functioning.

Capgras syndrome is characterized by delusions, lack of emotional response to a familiar face, constant anxiety and depression.

Treatment
Antipsychotic medication is generally used to treat Fregoli delusions. Anti-seizure drugs and anti-depressants are prescribed to combat other symptoms of the disorder. The family members of the patient are also counselled so that they do not feel insulted by the patient's behavior.

Individualized cognitive therapy is much more beneficial in case of Capgras syndrome than medication. Habilitation therapy is a form of treatment where the patient is not repeatedly contradicted and corrected. Usually the patients' family members are made to talk to them about their mistakes gently without arguing with them. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

You cannot have memory problems at the age of 26 unless you have any shock or wasting or brain degenerating diseases. Simple and routine memory problems occur to everyone because of their overwhelming tasks or overwhelming lazyness. This cannot be considered as memory loss. If you have memory problems, keep things in writings according to priority. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
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.

Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation.
