The Doctors welcome psychiatrist Dr. Ish Major to help a viewer figure out how to best move on from her recent breakup. She asks for tips on "how to detox her life and move forward."
Dr. Ish says, "If you can see it, touch it, taste it, hear it, and especially smell it and it is [the other person's] - get rid of it!" He feels that this includes mementos, pictures, and tokens of your ex.
He tells The Doctors that items belonging to your ex will keep you connected to them in a way you might not want after a breakup. The psychiatrist says the power of smell is directly connecting to how the brain accesses memories, and being reminded of an ex through a smell can be particularly difficult.
As for which gender deals with a breakup worse, Dr. Ish says it traditionally takes men twice as long to get over a bad breakup, due to how it is more difficult for men to access the brain's amygdala, which is the part of the brain that processes our deep emotions.
