Hi Lybrate user, Basically, Memory, is like muscular strength, requires you to “use it or lose it.” The more you work out your brain, the better you’ll be able to process and remember stuff. The best brain exercises break your routine and challenge you to use and develop new brain pathways. Following are the tips that will help you deal with memory issues- 1. Get on a regular sleep schedule 2. Avoid all screens for at least an hour before bed 3. Meditation 2 times a day will help you alot 4. Take breaks throughout the day 5. Set healthy a balance between work and leisure time 6. Focus on one task at a time, rather than trying to multi-task 7. Spend time with fun, playful people 8. Cut down on caffeine 9. Limit calories and saturated fat 10. Eat more fruit and vegetables 11. Get your omega-3s like- fish (salmon, tuna) 12. Eat dark chocolate and almonds Will help you boost memory Good Luck!

Dear lybrate user, You get angry when a set of expectation is not met, what is it that you must explore within. And don't try to control your behavior, controlling is violence, a suppression which will push the problem deeper. Have patience,It will go!.Can go for a COUNSELING SESSION, Let me know, if you want one tc

Ask yourself, What is making u feel low? What are things which are bothering u. Why u want to cry? Have a positive self-talk, and learn What are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on.You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ Stress Management Super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, u will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear lybrate-user, somatization disorders take many weeks to improve. Probably in 3-6 weeks with sufficient dose. Because you are young, the psychiatrist would have started on a low dose. If you are able to tolerate it, he may increase the dose. You will improve with sufficient dose for sufficient time. Go back to the same psychiatrist. He may even change the medicine.

I am not remember any thing after 3 hours. Whet I thought that time I have facing many types of problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 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. 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.

I hope you are aware that the lack of sleep alone can cause all of the other symptoms. It is also possible that these other symptoms can cause the lack of sleep too. So what to do? Meet with a counselor and sort your emotional disturbance first and see what happens. In the meantime. Follow these recommendations to get some sleep: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Sex Therapy - Best Way to Handle Sexual Problems

Over the last couple of decades, there has been a steady increase in the number of issues pertaining to sex. While there are a variety of reasons attributed to it including more exposure to sex through media forums, the changing lifestyle of people is said to be a bigger reason.

With people connected to their work all through the day and multitasking on the rise, work is never complete.  Even when retiring for the night, there are always things running about what next to do.  In cases where both couples are working, there is no match of timings either. That being the case, sex has taken a backseat, almost the last seat.

In addition, the altered Indian lifestyle also has led to greater exposure to sex leading to increased cases of abuse (family/friends circle), past unpleasant experiences, relationship failures, etc.  All these have changed the equations in relationships.

More and more couples are worried about a number of sexual issues, including:

  • Loss of desire 
  • Anxiety about sex
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Orgasmic disorder
  • Premature or delayed ejaculation
  • Conflicting sexual desires 
  • Past sexual abuse or assault
  • Loneliness
  • Image issues 
  • Promiscuity 

Sex therapy is on the rise, and 90% of the therapy consists of getting the couples to have a frank, open discussion. As much as it is a private topic, the problem can only be solved when an open discussion happens, both with the doctor and with the partner.

Whether it is past abuse or erectile dysfunction, the first step is to acknowledge the problem and discuss about it. If you are not able to confide in your partner or a good friend, it is advisable to seek a therapist.  

It is wise to pick a therapist who comes through referral. Some things to keep in mind are:

  1. Be open - Like any other counseling, sex therapy also involves a frank discussion with complete confidence in the person. The therapist will understand your concerns about anxiety or problem and help you how to communicate your desires and needs with your partner.
  2. It does not end with one discussion - Starting to work with a sex therapist is just the first step. It might take a while (a few months) to completely resolve the issue and identify the solution.
  3. Involve your partner - Though it is advisable to start talking alone with the therapist, after a couple of sessions, the partner may also be called in to see if there is something that needs to be worked upon.

Sex therapy can definitely help to resolve the above noted issues and improve sex life, which is very essential for a healthy body and relationship.

Headaches is something which is very tricky. It is one of the commonest physical symptom arising due to inability to cope with excessive stress. But it is something which can be a presentation of grave medical illness as well. This is why you should get yourself evaluated to rule out any physical cause of headache. If they are ruled out managing stress by pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods is recommended.

Hello sir, I have a doubt if a person born with less intelligence have to be that like only till his end or he can improve his intelligence. If we can intelligence means how can we improve ? Please suggest answer.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
By improving brainpower as this. Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

Let it be occupational, or any other, Not getting interest to continue and close the activity which ever started.. Say for ex., if I start doing some body exercises in the morning for some time 20 to 30 mts, I was starting but after two to three days or a max of a week the same activity was getting discontinued and not getting interest to continue, not only that, even on most interested activity...I found through some magazines that after checking the symptoms I am having clinical Depression, Not getting sound sleep, Having indigestion for which had some medicines for a period of one two months as a course but no result found..In-stabled mind always think to do something but due to instability of concentration unable to continue, suggested for meditation/yoga, but the same thing unable to concentrate to continue, BP and Urine/blood sugar checked and its Ok.. If I am reading some magazine/news paper article/watching TV/doing some work/chanting some thing in pooja room, if I found somebody is talking/some noise observed, immediately the mind diverts and I need to start from the beginning to follow.. consulted one of the physicians, but could not get me correct treatment... Can any doctor give me suggestion which can be more helpful to correct myself

Along with psychiatric treatment please follow it up with counselling and psychotherapy to identify the underlying cause for disinterest in daily activities. It will help you to modify some of your behaviour as you are unable to achieve your goals. Removing things which distract you can be a good starter. CBT would also help you.

Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison. You must understand, liver digests the poison in order to safeguard your body organs. In that process, liver gets damaged. Even a single drop of alcohol can damage liver. Quit alcohol. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, don't worry for some people break ups helped them after that they got better ones, from teenage to till marriage love is very common, but every individual thinks that it is only her problem it is not, some people they express some people will not, when you love you need to build family 1. To have family life we need money 2. To earn money we need to have good job to get into this cycle, most important don't spoil your career, true love always comes back, 1 or 2 sessions of counseling will change your life, counseling can be in-person or audio/video.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.
