Foods for a Healthy Brain

Having a healthy brain is equally important as is staying physically fit. Good mental health is absolutely essential. Apart from regular exercises there are certain foods also which can help you to maintain good mental health.

Below mentioned are few foods, essential for having a healthy brain:

  1. Include Fish in your Diet: If you are a non- vegetarian then include oily fishes like salmon , sardines in your diet. These fishes are replete with omega -3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. All these are essential for the brain to function efficiently.
  2. Munch on Nuts: Nuts are rich sources of Vitamin E. Vitamin E can help you prevent your brain from Alzheimer's disease. Nuts are also beneficial for elderly people and can help them combat the problem of memory loss.
  3. Keep Preparations with Green Leafy Vegetables on your Menu: Vegetables like cabbage; broccoli is abundant in anti-oxidants. Broccoli is also a good supplement for Vitamin K. These help to develop your memory and also keep brain diseases like Alzheimer's, Dementia at bay.
  4. Have a Sweet Tooth for Blueberries: This fruit is rich in anti oxidants, vitamin C and K. It helps to deal with problems like memory loss, Alzheimer's and Dementia.
  5. Add Eggs to your Breakfast Menu: Eggs are rich in choline and also protein. It acts as a very good food for developing a healthy brain.
  6. Get Addicted to Avocadoes: Avocadoes help to tackle problems like hypertension, blood pressure and also help in smooth flowing of blood. They also contain Vitamin K and C which help in memory development.
  7. Go for Whole Grains: Whole grains like wheat flour, flour, oatmeal provide energy to your brain. They supply glucose and are thus considered to be very good brain foods.

The above mentioned foods are easily available and can help you to develop a healthy brain.

Any addiction is harmful for the body and so is marijuana. Drink lots of water and fresh fruit and vegetable juices to clear the toxins from your body. Take good sleep for 8-10 hours and exercise for 1 hour atleast 3-4 days a week for a better life.

I gave my exams and I am very depressed about the results and please suggest me to come out the tension and stress.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

I gave my exams and I am very depressed about the results and please suggest me to come out the tension and stress.
You are done giving your exam sang now you jaunt have to wait for results. You feel depressed because you are anticipating failure and as if something very wrong would happen. Let me tell you" you have no control on results" so your thinking is" not going to change results" also even if you fail" the world is not going to end" as you feel in your mind. When we can unconditionally accept success we should be welcoming failures also, and modify ourselves according to it and turn it into successes. If you still continue feeling sad and depressed you should be started on treatment.

My 16 years old son wants me to give him blow job? what do I do? does he need a psychiatrist.

MBBS, DPM

My 16 years old son wants me to give him blow job? what do I do? does he need a psychiatrist.
Dear lybrate-user, he may not need a psychiatrist. He needs sex education. If you can not give it, please ask other male members of the family to give. If all of you are uncomfortable with your growing son's sexual needs, of course any psychiatrist or psychologist will educate him. Find out from your son, how he views a psychiatrist. Only as a teacher - not someone who will correct his'abnormality' he is a normally growing adolescent.

Please consult a counsellor. Medicines along with counselling will help you a lot. A counsellor can help you to reduce your anxiety. You need systematic training for this. The counsellor will help you to modify your perceptions about different situations, causing anxiety so that you can get rid of this.

Why is that once a person starts taking alcohol or drugs, its is difficult to get rid of this habit?

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 Sonali. Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and drugs ultimately affect and trigger the pleasure center of the brain. Whenever these substances are used, the pleasure center get activated. Then on habituation, the pleasure center asks for more and more of the substance, just because it gets pleasure. De addiction therapy can help the addict. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user! Age doesn't matter the modern world and life style makes you think. It is like survival of the fittest. There is nothing wrong for thinking negatively, bcoz the world is like that, it is not that peaceful like what it was about 15 to 20 years ago, so the approach in facing situations should be different I mean you should face each and every walks of your life more positively. Ya it works "All is Well" to some extent, but you require a more impacting ways to convert your negativity into a more positive one. Of course world wide acceptable and effective way both physically and mentally is the more ancient way of following Yoga and meditation, which would suit you and your family better. Feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage. Take care. Do not worry. With regards, Psy. MSV.

An ulcer lasting that long may be misdiagnosed, insist on getting a tissue biopsy done. Meanwhile keep the mouth clean. Swish & spit with warm salt-water after meals, till suggested otherwise.
