Hello dear friend, sorry to hear your plight. If you want to live a healthy & fulfilling life; then we need to first understand your current set of problems, how they started & evolved; what medications you are currently taking, whether at any point in your treatment you felt better with medications etc. So I would suggest that you write your problems in detail in your own words & also write about your current medications (or attach snapshots of your medical records) & get back to me so that we can formulate an EFFECTIVE plan of action. Good Luck

Dear, I can understand your emotions. From the given information, it is not possible to diagnose your mother for mental illness. I request you to provide all the symptoms she shows so that I can analyze the problem and provide curative measures. In any case, worrying is not at all a solution. You may contact me in case you want further clarification. Take care.

Dear , I too feel you are wasting your time going behind him. He has a wife. He is playing with your emotions. You blame him and suspect him. All these are enough for you to leave him. You are still clinging to him because you are infactuated, not loving. Please understand. You cannot be happy with him. Be practical and let your parents decide about your marriage. God bless you. Take care.

I am 18 years old and student of class 12th. Sir,whenever I go to any of my coaching Phy, che and maths and in schools when I attend class then in between studies my brain goes somewhere else for 20 seconds - 2 minutes. During this period I also don't know where I am between this duration of time. Suddenly my eyes focused on particular thing and after 20 seconds - 2 minutes spends I also thing where I am between this period. And during this period my teacher taught many things but I not always tell the teacher repeat which you taught 2 mins before. And this is not only happen during studies also in watching T.V. (like movies, discovery, news) and also sometimes when I talk to someone and in self studies. I think this I not only the problem of concentration. Sir,Please tell me if it is any diseases. One more thing, Sir,I also drink some poison before 2 years when I am in class 10th before Board exam in December due to not good preparation for exam. I also think I am the worst in every thing.So, I drink all out 5 ml - 10 ml almost 2 - 3 times (sometimes directly and one times by mixing little water in 15 ml of allot).can this be the poison's effect on my brain?

Your 'spacing out' or wild imagination may or may not be a problem depending on the frequency and how far detached you get to the reality. If the frequency and detachment gets too much as in too long, then you may be developing a problem of disassociation which can lead to a lot of complications. Kindly meet with a counselor and if that person wants you to meet a doctor then please do so with full cooperation in both therapies. If it is a passing phase, as it often happens in teenage years, then you do not have to worry too much but let your counselor tell you that. Now for your memory enhancement and concentration and focus: I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week

How should I increase my concentration?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection.

You are suffering from anxiety disorder and Flight Phobia. You also know that this kind of fear is mostly irrational, it is a fear of escape from the flight if something unwanted events happens. millions of people are travelling by flight daily. Flight is one of the most safest mode of transport in comparison to other transport. There are more accidents on ground than on the air. So nothing to scared. During flight close your eyes, take deep and long breathe. Try to relax on board by hearing some relaxation music. Hope everything will be okay....Have a safe journey... Thanks.

I lost my somebody close last year so I am very depressed and lost my strongness please help me.

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
I lost my somebody close last year so I am very depressed and lost my strongness 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. You can contact me for further help, if required.

My sister is a drug addict what should I do now to stop her from having drugs and all these things.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to admit your sister into a rehabilitation program for at least 6 months to cure her of this addiction. If she has had mental problems too then she may require psychiatric care as well. Even after rehabilitation she must continue addiction counseling for at least three years to completely remove the physical and psychological conditioning and craving. She will be told and taught new lifestyles, schedules, habits etc. to totally recover. She must work on the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factor and the script issue. Many people will not be able to resolve drug addiction in particular if they do not reach their ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, i.e. the worst stage in their addiction to finally want to reform. Unfortunately for some unlucky few that can be death. So do be careful and do not delay seeking help now. If there are relapses, do not get too alarmed and give up. She must again persevere and fight this battle until she comes out victorious. The family members and medical fraternity must be there for her right through this recovery. She will also need to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings for a long time too after the treatment is over. The worse is if she is not yet ready and willing you will most likely fight a losing battle. But keep trying until you succeed.

It appears that probably you have performance anxiety. If you are feeling stressed, then that means there is some reason but you are not able to understand what is causing this stress. Try to find out the source/trigger of your stress and then work on it. Each person in this world is different. You will not find a person who's ideas and thoughts will mactch with you 100%. But definitely you will have like minded people, you need to search for them. The people with whom you generally interact with may not be sharing your thoughts, ideas, and likes because of their different backgrounds and different life experiences. That is why you are finding it difficult to connect with them. There are many groups online also where you can find like minded people. About your anxiety about talking to people, do you worry about how they will perceive you? are you not confident about your social skills? if it is so, please practice the conversations when you are alone. Have realistic expectations from yourself. You also can take help of a counsellor who will help you in improving your social and interpersonal skills.

Drink plenty of fluids that suit you, including, water, tender coconut water, buttermilk or sweetlime. 3. Do brisk walking for at least 30 minutes, everyday in a park with a well-constructed pathway for walking and jogging. This will boost up your ability to handle stress.
