I have problem of concentration, I can not concentrate on anything more than 5 minutes, Interest doesn't come for doing work. When someone try to advice me I become fear in my mind & don't do work due to fear. Fear of failure comes within my mind.

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.

Dear sir, my wife got influenced by brahma kumaris organization. She is not cooperating in sexual life. Can this problem be solved. Regards

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I guess you mean that she has a spiritual calling. If that is genuine, I suppose you have to live with that fact that your sex life may be all but over. Not that it is necessary for her to curb sexual activity. It is just that people, once spiritually moved, give up all earthly desires and pleasures to sustain their spiritual sanctity, so that they do not get easily distracted by material pleasures and therefore from their spiritual pursuits. I don? t fully agree with this because it is very easy to do this to remain pious. The challenge is to be able to maintain this in the thick and thin of life and live a balanced life. But I could be a voice in the wilderness on this front because you have seen most holy people giving up all the pleasures of life to pursue a religious life. I don? t suppose they are doing it just to avoid it but are doing so to give it up as a sacrifice too. Whatever you believe, it now matters that your wife has given it up whether as a sacrifice or to preserve her spiritual state is for her to say. The other point of concern is that it is a unilateral decision, and I fail to see how that is justified when one has married to stay faithful to the nuptial obligations. But then spiritual callings can happen at any time and must be respected, if it is genuine. This position of mine could raise a lot of controversies but I am open to other differing opinions to help you understand your situation and learn to live with it. Of course nobody can stop you from leaving this marriage and going into another for your own needs. The fact that she is still living with you may be some consolation; and that she is not rejecting you for another, even if it is god.

I am suffering from depression. I take allopathic medicine for 7 months. It doesn't work . And Now I take homeopathic medicine. It works Is homeopathic treatment is right?

MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Pune
I would recommend you to really contribute he allopathic treatment. If the current regimen hasn't suited you, express tour concerns about it to your psychiatrist. The medicines can always be changed. Every person responds differently to a particular drug. Also there are other treatment options like therapy (counselling) which are highly effective in combination with the medication. You have to be patient, and stick with the treatment. Some times it takes time to find the right drug, which suits you best. Good luck.

Hi doctor, my full body in heavy pain and how to save from fever and yoga. Please advise.

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Jaipur
Hi, your body pain is due to fever you are suffering from. Fever may be simple/ self-limiting viral infection, or it may a symptom some serious illness like typhoid/ malaria/ dengue/ tb or many more like that. It is decided by symptoms provided by you, and a battery of investigations. But short term fever is most likely viral fever. Therefore, follow the advice and consult doctor with detail symptoms. 1. Take rest for 1-2 days. Wear light and cotton cloths, it helps in cooling of body. 2. Take tablet paracetamol 500 mg (as and when required; after food) for fever (more than 99 f) for 3 days. Maximum 3 tablets with gap of 8 hours can be taken in a day. 3. If fever persists, do cold sponging (with cold water even ice water if needed) to lower down temperature. 4. Drink plenty of fluids. 5. Take adequate rest and proper sleep. Going to work, working out may just make you feel worse as the extra action adds stress to your body. Inadequate sleep decreases immunity of body, which causes worsening of illness. 6. Take proper diet preferably homemade like dalia, khichdi, rice, dahl, chapatti, vegetable soups or steamed veggies. 7. This is season of dengue, therefore, if you have high grade fever, and body ache, then have platelet count from nearby laboratory.

6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

M.Sc - Disaster Mitigation, MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

Feelings of inadequacy for long durations and being extremely sensitive to what others think of you is a disorder called avoidant personality disorder symptom. Such feelings of inadequacy in turn push the person to become isolated from the society and the person avoids people, work, and other activities. Social and occupational functioning is affected as the person is extremely sensitive and has very low self-esteem. Symptoms of avoidant personality disorder are:

  1. Avoiding social interactions: people suffering from this disorder avoid almost all sorts of interpersonal contact since they lie with the fear of rejection, disapproval and criticism.
  2. Avoiding risks: they avoid taking personal risks or being involved in activities which seem new, because they fear that they will embarrass themselves.
  3. Socially unplugged: they are not willing to get involved with individuals unless they are absolutely certain of being liked by the person.
  4. Preoccupied with negative perception: the idea of being criticized or rejected in social functions is so deep within their psyche that they are often preoccupied with only this thought in their minds.
  5. Inferiority complex: people suffering from avoidant personality disorder consider themselves as good for nothing, unappealing, and inferior to everyone else.
  6. Avoid intimacy: they are always reluctant to get into intimate relationships because they feel that they will be shamed and ridiculed. Because of such fears, they let go of relationships where they would have been genuinely cherished too.

The only treatment possible for this disorder is psychotherapy. While some people opt for long term therapy, most people usually visit a psychotherapist only when they feel overwhelmed with their fear and emotions.

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.

I am 28 years old. I have smoking habit. I need to forget that habit. Pls help me.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Happy to know that you want to forget smoking. Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud.

My father have passed away a month ago. When ever I see his photo or thinking about him. I can't able to control myself. The same issue my mom is also facing. What can I do for it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You and your mom need to express your grief around the loss of this family member completely. A father and husband are a great loss for the both of you and that vacuum that he has created can never be filled adequately by anyone else. And the loss is, therefore, permanent. You need to talk about him and all the experiences he had brought into your lives to exhaust it out pf your system. Then gradually you will learn to accept it and come to terms with it too. This is a gradual process and at the end of it, you will have accepted the reality and can move on with your lives. If it is too intense, meet with a counselor and deal with it. It is better to deal with it now than to let it come up much later, which will affect your lives adversely. You will probably have to become the man of the house if there is no other male around. You will soon move on but for your mom, the loss is more difficult to handle. You must be there for her and support her extensively to come out of the grief.

I am not able to increase my memory power, what should I do to increase memory and to do studies?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Hello, You are lacking the focus and concentration. The best way of increasing the concentration is through exercises (sp. yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Bacopa Monierri Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You may have to examine both your study habits and how you answer at exams. I will give you some guidelines for the former but you need to check out the latter with a colleague, teacher, or tuition guide so that they may know your habits and give you more specific instructions. 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.
