Hey sir I am student I m unable to concentrate on my study please suggest something.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 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 am a regular smoker; now I am unable to run and facing breathing problems. How can I control smoking.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
One of the few habits which takes very systematic approach and needs lot of support and individualized stretagies to quit successfully. Data such as - since how long are you smoking and how many cigarettes a day you consume are important information. Also have you tried quitting it earlier? how successful were you? and what are your personal reasons to stop smoking? all these are also important part of your success stretagy. Broadly speaking your reasons for not smoking work as your motivator. The stronger the reasons behind not smoking the higher the motivation and thus higher the chances for you to be successful. Also your body will have a withdrawal symptoms and it is very important to come up with strategies and solid plan to counter these withdrawal symptoms. These strategies should be tailormaid as per your need and situation. If you consider these and many other individualized approach and if you have a solid support through out your journey. You would be able to make a shift from being a smoker to a non smoker. You could either contact someone in your city or contact me to work either telephonically or via internet based system. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

I am 36 yrs old, and I want to enhance the brain memory. Please provide your valuable answer.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Live a relaxed life by adopting following in life:- -- having healthy diet, -- early morning awakening, -- doing yoga/meditation, -- daily jog/exercise, -- listen soothing music at evening, -- some time for rest, recreation and socialization and -- adequate sleep. If you have anxiety/stress, your mind will be pre-occupied with worries and fears and as a result you may feel yourself absent minded. So get yourself treated if you feel so. For enhancing memory otherwise-- -- repetition of task and recalling in mind, -- and referring. Immediately to source/book in case of any doubt. -- write down the important points. -- try to discuss your lesson among your peer groups. Take care.

Why do you want to end something, which has not started by your own will. How are you sure that it will end your problem permanently. What are the set of expectations you have built in all these years, which have given this frustration, remember without expectation there is no frustration. Fixity of thoughts lead to frustration, you should keep on changing your course of action till you get what you want. Do not feel guilty about the past, it happened as it was to happen. Trust destiny and leave everything on it. Find your happiness in a different way, through different people. Static things become dull and polluted, only what is flowing is joyous and alive!

My brother imagine a story and he is telling tht this story is real nd day by day telling a new story his brain is not stable so wat 2 do

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think that your brother may be suffering from the early stages of psychosis (if this is a recent development), and needs the urgent intervention of a psychiatrist. He will tend to make-up situations and then feel compelled to believe or assume them to be real. He may be gradually getting disconnected from reality. I, myself, am presuming this from the limited information you have given. Ideally you should take him to a psychiatrist soon for an assessment and some medical intervention as the doctor feels fit. Along with the medical advice he will need to seek parallel therapy, so seek the help of a counselor is advised too. The combination of medicine and counseling will help him stabilize and lead a normal life. Otherwise his condition may deteriorate and it may become very difficult to alleviate later on.

What are the disadvantages of smoking weed (marijuana)? My cousin is a chain smoker?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Now we all spoke the same language: we can stop whenever we want, it is not addictive, it is fun after all, there are so many medical benefits etc. All meant to justify the consumption. There are so many other healthy ways to be creative or to stimulate the creativity in you; and there are so many ways to ‘open’ your mind. Why choose the easy way out when it is a chemical way out? Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat a baked good or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!!

I'll get body pains and specially legs pains allot after completing my bathroom. What to do? Please advise.
pain is complex phenomenon, so there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I eat daily tobacco pan masala from last 15 years. So I want leave that bad habit what I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting do visit a dentist and get a thorough cleanup as a definite measure about your determination. You will feel and look fresh when you start your life without he substance. Chewing pan is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral sub mucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the sub mucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get into regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred.

Dear doctor, I am 41 years old from mumbai, india & suffering from moderate levels of obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) which is hereditry (my father is suffering from ocd & alzheimers too). Although my ocd is under control but at times, I feel it becomes uncontrollable despite myself knowing very well that the kind of repetitive acts (common symptoms of ocd) I am doing are totally needless. I can see all traits & symptoms of ocd in myself viz. Rechecking several times, the door lock, geyser, gas etc. Etc. & feeling insecure about the same. I am totally aware that what I am indulging is absolutely needless. Ocd is impairing my daily life & routine. Tasks which should take not more than a few moments take me hours to finish. I have apprehensions that if my ocd gets out-of-control, my life might become miserable & pathetic in future (it is already on that track). It has already affected my career & life adversely since I keep on getting repetitive thought-patterns through-out the day about the conversations I have had with people in person or on the phone i. E. Flashback thoughts about such conversations go through my mind recursively hence I am unable to concentrate & focus on any constructive work because of these endless repetitive thoughts. I have also been suffering from the mental illness viz. Trichotillomania (nose hair pulling, impulse control disorder) since last 5 years. Whenever I am deeply engrossed in some work and/or thoughts, my hands inadvertently & invariably go in the nostrils area & start plucking the nose hair strands continuously. The urges are very strong at times whenever I am tensed & anxious or under severe pressure or stress. This has ruined my career & impaired my life immensely. I don't do the hair-pulling act in public but whenever I am alone. I don't have any control whatsoever over it though mostly I am fully aware whenever i'm pulling but really can't help stop it; the urges are really that strong. This annoying & irritating habit consumes lots of precious time & hampers my work. So much so that, I leave my work & stand in front of the mirror looking for hair strands to pull-out. What are the possible treatment lines for ocd & trichotillomania? please help me, i'm terribly depressed. Kindly advice the treatment & the therapy I need to undergo to cure myself of ocd & trichotillomania thanks in anticipation. Warm regards
