I am forgetting everything within 20 min My memory power became very low Wat should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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 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.

Someone has to gently e[palin to his parents or you have to take him to a psychiatrist and treat .Certain antidepressants can help prevent anxiety and reduce the frequency and severity of panic attacks, but are not used for immediate relief during an attack. Panic disorder is an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent unexpected panic attacks. Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, numbness, or a feeling that something really bad is going to happen.

I am in depression. How I get good sleep. What is useful any drink to good sleep.
Warm milk is good for sleep. As for depression, The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help

Cardiac problems have many risk factors like obesity, hypertension, smoking atherosclerosis, type A personality, depression and so on. So if you are underweight and depressed, you dont have one risk factor, but you still have other. In short, yes, even if you are underweight, depression, stress and anxiety can still influence cardiac health.

Dear Prabhakar, this behavior is normal. Stress means body needs satisfaction. Nicotine enhances the brain chemicals which gives body satisfaction. Therefore, during stress people smoke, drink, bite nails etc. Take care.

Hello, any kind of obsession (whether good or bad) is not good for us as it creates problem not for us but for our near and dear ones as well! you need to consult a psychologist for counselling sessions apart from intake homoeopathic medicines. Both together can give you the best results. Adding meditation and yoga will accentuate this effect. Medication: silicea 200/ twice daily, bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos 6x/ once at night. Take all of them for 1 month. Revert me back there after. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, Thanks for writing in. Welcome to the forum. The situation that you are describing is commonly seen wherein a relatively good control of symptoms is broken due to stress. There are many ways of solving this problem. The first and the recommended measure is to get psychotherapy or counseling. This will help improve your symptoms, solve the future/ career issue effectively and also equip and empower you with psychological skills that will be useful to face stressful situations in the future also. Moreover, it may also facilitate reduction of medicine dosage and also eventual stoppage of the same. The second option is to increase fluoxetine to 80 mg and there is a good chance that things will improve. However, this is a less satisfactory option when compared to the first one. Hope that helps. Take care!

My throat is not well as I have passion of singing light n semi classical vocal. I am in age of 62 years. I wish to have advise for a medicine to get cure of laryng.

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi The vocal cords get injured with singing and prolonged speaking. Especially since aging makes them dry and weak. You need to follow something known as voice hygiene which includes drinking sips of warm water every 30 minutes along with giving voice rest for 10-15 minutes every hour. Voice must not be excessively raised or lowered and whispering must be avoided. Medicines help only when there is laryngitis. See an ent specialist for a detailed assessment and advice.

You are going through a very important phase in your adolescence and will experience some distractions. 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.

This question is to a qualified, certified,experienced and competent psychiatrist only. I am 58 years old and Schizophrenic since 1987. I was put on various medications and I responded to them very well and hence there is a lot of relief now. Currently, I am on only one anti-psychotic viz Sizodon Forte 0-0-1 and there is tremendous relief. Of late, my body is showing showing side effects, probably due to the fact that I no longer need powerful anti-psychotics. Now, I don't have hallucinations & delusions. I have two questions here. (a) There are thought disturbances like, always preoccupied with thoughts, and get aggressive thoughts because I am not fully occupied. Is this due to the fact, that I am not working and absence of work is rust to the month Is this a positive symptom of Schizophrenia? (b) I have stammering since childhood and necessary action was taken by a speech therapist and now I speak almost fluently. Because of this, I developed inferiority complex and hence was not socializing, staying aloof from friends and relatives etc. I have this problem even now. My personal hygiene is good. Is this a negative symptom of Schizophrenia? Kindly answer to these two questions, as I can impress on my psychiatrist whom I am visiting next week. Thanks.

Good Morning ~ I appreciate your questions, and also appreciate the fact that you are taking and tolerating your medications with minimal side effects so far. I believe you need appreciation also for having asked questions on this forum. A) Though disturbances like preoccupation with certain types of thoughts and aggressive thoughts are certainly positive symptoms of schizophrenia and may be decreased by non-medication methods like yoga and pranayama or by medication augmentation of your current medications. Like you have said yourself, involving yourself in productive activity may also decrease the symptoms to the point that you may become comfortable without having aggressive thoughts. B) Stammering is a common problem and occurs in 1-2% of the general population. Most likely stammering is anxiety related and gets better over time or with less anxiety. Anxiety can be reduced with either medications or with counseling i.e. Anxiety reducing techniques. Exposing yourself to anxiety provoking situations will reduce your anxiety gradually. Counseling may be helpful in this case. Stammering is separate from schizophrenia. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment
