There are no medicines for this. Please follow the recommended exercises suggested below: 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.

Dear , video game addictions are latest development. Many people are addicted to such games. Many are addicted to face book or whatsup. The method is to find a more entertaining activity like games (indoor or outdoor) or some more entertaining pass time like going to movie or outing etc. Once you find your passion into these activities, automatically game addiction will wane off. Don't worry. I suggest you to have an online counseling session with me. Take care.

There may be some organicity to investigate too. However, if you have tried flashcards to improve your visual and auditory recall, then you can continue to repeat it often until noticeable change occurs. If you have not tried that, then please get those cards to help your dyslexia. You must also employ the kinesthetic, tactile, auditory, and visual modes of learning and practice daily. The tactile gives you a 'feel' of the letters and words, and the kinesthetic will give you movement symbols of letters and words to help you store permanent memories associated with words and the phonetics associated with them. It will also be good to seek counseling for the emotions that have built up over the years and take care of them too.

My son is very nervous type. During his first admission to school, he used to become soft prey for bullying. Gradually days passed. Now after doing post graduation, recently he joined a private bank. Now again I find, he becomes nervous whenever his collegues pointing out the negative aspects of sevice like losing job for proper reason my question is how he can get rid of these nervousness. I am scary because he has to take so many challenges in life as he is aiming for higher position too.

Since you are the parent you will know if there is any genetic or family trait prevailing in your clan. If so, he will need to factor that in and know that he is merely projecting that innate trait. Apart from that he may have a nervous disposition due to parental strictness at home, or particularly with him. If he has always been a weak child, he could fear others from the size aspect of this. Also you could take him to a counselor and that person will be able to not only explore the causes but will also be able to help him get out of this problem. They can find out if he is under any kind of chronic stress as well. In the meantime let him go a gym and do some bodybuilding exercises. He will develop a good self-image and body-image if he develops some physical strength. You need to give him a good diet of high fiber foods and a good mix of fruits and vegetables. He has to learn about emotions and how to deal with them, particularly fear. Let him attend a personality development course, join groups, conferences, meetings, workshops, and seminars. He can take a multivitamin and multi-mineral along with calcium, regularly. I hope he has no sleep problem because that could make it more difficult for him. If he loses a job, he may definitely want to do something. So do not panic for him and increase his discomfort. Let him face the world but be there to help him resolve these issues over time and with some therapy.

It is normal to lose about 30-80 strands of hair in a day. The common reasons behind hair fall are lack of essential nutrients in the body, improper and unhealthy dietary habits, hormonal imbalance, certain medications, dandruff, alopecia and other scalp disorders, stress and tension etc. Natural oils such as coconut, olive, jojoba, almond etc. Can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall. Gently massage the scalp prior to head bath twice a week. Also check hemoglobin for anaemia and thyroid status with serum tsh. Have more proteins and trace minerals like copper, zinc, selenium in diet. Start taking a hair nutrition supplement. Keep stress away with regular exercise, yoga, meditation. Get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated.

How should I deal with my father? Actually he is very male-dominated person, he thinks that he know every thing (he is only 8th passed). He is very cheap person too as he stares at" females" cheaply and he fought with me and my mother very aggressively whenever he comes home after drinking (he is a baptized Sikh), he even consumes illegal drugs, he acts very badly and uses abusive words. He fight with us in very high volume and with this neighbors peek out from their homes and see. He thinks that in home the members especially" female members" like me and my mother are not supposed to argue with the main member of the family. Due to lot of arguments in my home, I can't concentrate on my studies which is resulting in bad results. What should I do, please guide me.

What you describe is a very addictive personality and almost without exception you as his child will suffer from what is known as Adult Children of Alcoholics Syndrome. There are about 32 issues you will be afflicted with because of this, and you will also carry a genetic inheritance for alcoholism. The combination of drugs and alcohol will lead to a chronic state. Before that happens you can take these measures. There are some rehabilitation centers that will come home and take him by force when he is highly intoxicated and admit him for detoxification and rehabilitation. This will of course require your mom’s approval and signed consent. This is better than suffering with all the ignominy currently and it is better to take effective measures, even if you are wrong, than to remain idle. For yourself, you can ask to be admitted into a boarding house or hostel or paying guest until you complete your studies. These are effective measures, and will definitely produce results and never feel embarrassed because you are suffering a lot of shame living like this.

It will be in your best interest if you contact local psychiatrist. If this is not possible then give him tab olimelt 10 mg at night by mixing in some food. If he is diabetic then don't give this medicine.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? 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, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me.

Respected Sir, there are medicines available to control a person's anger, but it can only be done after evaluating the cause. More often than not, it might subside without medicines with the help of anger management therapy. So please get that person evaluated at the earliest to identify the cause of anger.

Lack of self confidence .Feeling like a coward and lot of inferiority complex.How to beat all these?

The fear complex is doing you in. Please attend a personality development course that highlights the five-factorial approach: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual quotients. If you develop in these five areas, you will certainly improve your confidence. Some personality courses emphasize and focus on public speaking to a large extend. It is not too bad an idea but it is a little narrow in perspective. You could instead attend a Toast Masters Club, which does the same thing in a more organized manner. Apart from regular and aerobic exercising, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don?t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals.

I suspect that you have made a slight blunder that may be the cause of this despair. You must go for career guidance tests and also an aptitude test. These will determine what you are made for and tailor your skills set to the most desirable career. The career guidance counselor will then help with several professional options and match your favorite subjects that suit a particular course to be pursued. You are so young that mistakes can be easily and quickly rectified. Why trouble yourself and get into a depression when these matters can be sorted out in style. Cheer up and take your world by storm. There is so much waiting for you to do. In the meantime do regular exercise, eat well and get adequate sleep every day. Do not withdraw, and meet people in activity oriented settings so that mixing with them will be a whole lot comfortable. But do go through a little discomfort in the beginning, and in time it will ease up considerably. Keep me posted about your progress.
