You may take homoeopathic medicine Lachesis 200 1 dose. This is a specific medicine but advise is to take a proper consultation and then take the best suitable medicine especially in homoeopathy. Still you may try.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

I lost somebody last month and feeling depressed since that incident so please help me.

I lost somebody last month and feeling depressed since that incident so please help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

3 Mental Disorders That Genes Can Pass!

Psychologist, Kakinada
3 Mental Disorders That Genes Can Pass!

The risk of a mental illness increases, if one or more of your family members have a mental disorder, but this increased risk doesn't guarantee that you will develop a mental illness. Not only have some mental illnesses been found to be hereditary in nature, but certain studies have found that some major mental illnesses can be traced to the same genetic variations.

Some hereditary psychiatric disorders are:

  1. Obsessive compulsive disorder: Obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD is a disorder of the brain and behavior. A person suffering from OCD has uncontrollable, recurring thoughts and behaviors they cannot stop repeating. Ocd also causes severe anxiety in such people. In 2000, a study conducted by researchers in Washington d. C. And Baltimore concluded that having one or more ocd family member (s) may increase the chances of you developing it too. In 2010, a study tracked down possible chromosomes that may be responsible for OCD.
  2. Schizophrenia: Schizophrenia is a chronic mental illness that affects and dictates how a person feels, thinks and behaves. Those suffering from schizophrenia may lose touch with reality and experience delusions, hallucinations, thought disorders and movement disorders. It has been seen that people who have an identical twin with schizophrenia are 50% more likely to develop the disorder and those who have one parent suffering from schizophrenia are 18% more likely to inherit the illness.
  3. Depression: Major depression or clinical depression is a common though severe mood disorder. It is characterized by an episode of sadness or apathy along with other symptoms that last at least for two consecutive weeks. Those suffering from depression may feel helpless and worthless, lose all interest in daily activities or activities they used to enjoy and feel unable to take part in normal day-to-day activities. Other symptoms of depression also include sleep pattern and appetite changes, chronic fatigue, concentration or focus problems and physical discomfort. Some patients with depression may become suicidal.

In 2011, a study pinned down a specific chromosome that may trigger depression development. Research on the hereditary properties of depression within families shows that some people are more prone to develop the disorder than others. If you have a parent or sibling that suffers from depression, you might be 1.5 to 3 times more likely to develop depression than those who do not have a close family member suffering from this condition. You are also more prone to developing bipolar disorder in such a scenario.

Hi, You would have not given much importance to your health during the anxiety and depression period and as a result your immunity also has decreased since you have not taken proper food, vegetables and fruits required to your body. Now start giving importance to your health firstly, drink as much water you can every day, take tender coconut, multigrains in some form or the other, fruits and vegetables also. Definitely you will become fit. Take care. Be healthy. With regards,

What you are experiencing is very common after a profound loss of life. The feeling that your gm is still present around will last for a few days or weeks. You will get over this feeling. No there are no souls or ghosts. It shows that you loved her very much and are missing her.

For depression counselling is first line and best treatment 1-2 sessions of counselling will change her life, in counselling counselor can analyze your issues and give you suggestions, counselling sessions can be in-person or audio (phone)/video many people stopped medicines after counselling. Many people cured with counselling and leading better life. Counselling means (caring conversation between doctor with patient motivates and helps in healing the person better than medicines)" it is known truth that counselling is better than medicine"

This is a critical age for a children, due to hormonal changes in their body they have many curiosities in their mind about themselves and about surroundings. Try to handle him with lots of patience and in friendly manner otherwise these curiosities may lead him to wrong path. Answer his questions. Also make him understand the importance of studies for his age. Encourage him to join some sport activities/classes that will make him active and divert his mind from any unhealthy thinking.

Hello Congratulations! You are towards a period when you are considered wise! So why not act wisely towards your health goals. Fad diets bring a bounce back effect and are not very successful in loosing weight. Try to small frequent meals 5-6 times a day. Exercise regularly 5-6 times a week minimum 45 mins a day. Include more of high fiber foods like salads, sprouts,whole grains, green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water 4-5 litres a day. Correct Nutritional Deficiencies if any like Calcium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3 deficiency. Eat right on right time & get enough sleep.
