Natural Amnesia Cures with Herbs
Several herbs are excellent for enhancing brain function. The following herbs are safe to take over a long period of time and
can be thought of as "brain tonics." In fact, they work best when taken for at least three months or longer.
Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is probably the best herb for improving mental functioning. Derived from the leaves of an ancient
tree that dates back to prehistoric times, ginkgo has been used for centuries in China to improve brain function. It contains
flavonoid compounds called ginkgo heterosides and terpene lactones that have potent antioxidant properties, enhance
circulation, and inhibit dangerous blood clots that can lead to brain-damaging strokes. Ginkgo has been proven in numerous
studies to improve symptoms of mental decline related to impaired blood flow to the brain such as memory loss, mental
confusion, and difficulties in concentrating. Ginkgo has even been shown to be beneficial in many cases of senile dementia,
including the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. Take an extract of ginkgo standardized to contain 24 percent ginkgo
hetero-sides (ginkgo flavone glycosides), 80 milligrams three times a day.
Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is a tonic herb that helps the body to more easily adapt to physical,
emotional stressors. It strengthens and balances the nervous system and provides a mild energy boost that helps to improve
mental focus. In several studies, people taking Siberian ginseng demonstrated marked improvement on cognitive function tests,
including an increased ability to concentrate, quicker reaction time, and improved memory. Take an extract standardized for
eleutherosides, 250 milligrams twice daily. Siberian ginseng is best used cyclically, taking the herb for two months followed by a
two-week break before resuming the dosage. If you have high blood pressure, consult your doctor before taking any type of
Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) is an Indian herb that is considered to be an important rejuvenative tonic in Ayurvedic
medicine for the brain and nerve cells. It has long been used in India as a brain tonic, where it is taken to increase intelligence
and memory and to ward off senility. Because of its calming properties, gotu kola is believed to be one of the most spiritual of
all herbs and is used to heighten awareness for meditation practices. Gotu kola is a pretty plant that is easily grown indoors.
You can add several leaves to a salad daily, or take one-half teaspoon of extract in warm water three times a day.
Natural Amnesia Cures with Rosemary:
The most remarkable remedy for loss of memory or forgetfulness is the use of the herb rosemary, botanically known as
Romarinus officinalis. Rosemary has long been regarded as a herb for remembrance. In ancient times, the Greeks and the
Romans prepared fragrant distilled water from the flowers of this plant and inhaled the odour so that "the evils were destroyed
from the mind and the memory no longer played tricks." Rosemary is considered to be an antidote for mental fatigue and
Forgetfulness. A tea made from this herb, taken once or twice a day, is a refreshing drink and an effective natural remedy for
enhancing menial agility.
Natural Amnesia Cures with Almonds:
Almonds are very valuable for restoring a poor memory caused by brain weakness. They contain unique properties to remove
brain debility and to strengthen the brain. Almonds preserve the vitality of the brain and cure ailments originating from nervous
disorders. Ten to twelve almonds should be immersed in water overnight and their outer skin removed. They should then be
made into a fine paste and taken, mixed with one teaspoonful of butter or even alone. Inhaling ten to fifteen drops of almond oil
through the nose, morning and evening, is also beneficial in the treatment of brain weakness.
Natural Amnesia Cures with Walnuts:
Walnut is another unique dry fruit valuable in countering brain weakness. About twenty grams of walnuts should be taken every
day. The value of walnuts is enhanced if they are taken with figs or raisins in a proportion of ten gram each, everyday.
Natural Amnesia Cures using Apples:
Apples are useful in amnesia. The various chemical substances contained in this fruit such as vitamin B,, phosphorus, and
potassium help in the synthesis of glutamic acid. This acid controls the wear and tear of nerve cells. Eating an apple a day with
one tea-spoon of honey and one cup of milk is beneficial in the treatment of loss of memory and mental irritability. It acts as an
effective nerve tonic and recharges the nerves with new energy and life.
Natural Amnesia Cures with Other Fruits
All fruits which are rich in phosphorus are valuable mitigations of amnesia, as they invigorate the brain cells and tissues. Apart
from apples, almonds, and walnuts, which have been discussed earlier, other phosphorus-rich fruits are figs, grapes, oranges,
and dates. Their intake is highly beneficial in loss of memory due to brain debility.
Natural Amnesia Cures with Black Pepper:
Five seeds of finely ground black pepper, mixed with one teaspoon of honey are also beneficial in the treatment of this
condition. This preparation should be taken both in the morning and evening.
If you simply want to preserve healthy mental functioning and are not suffering from memory loss, you can make your own
herbal formula to use as a brain tonic. However, if you currently have noticeable memory loss or other symptoms of decreased
cognitive functioning, it's best to take standardized extracts of ginkgo and Siberian ginseng.
Natural Amnesia Cures with Aromatherapy
Transient mental fogginess can be caused by overthinking, overworking, and fatigue. Essential oils can help to clear the mind,
relieve fatigue, and sharpen your mental' focus.
Rosemary and basil are two of the best essential oils for stimulating brain function. Place a drop or two of either one (or a
combination of both) on a handkerchief and inhale the fragrance as needed, or make the following air freshener to spray into
the air when you need a boost of mental clarity.
Natural Amnesia Cures - Lifestyle Suggestions for Improving Brain Function
The way you live on a daily basis has a great deal to do with how your brain functions today and how healthy your cognitive
abilities will remain as you age. Make sure that you are getting enough sleep, because sufficient rest is necessary for your brain
to function properly. Some of the primary symptoms of sleep deprivation are memory loss, difficulties concentrating, and
impairment in cognitive abilities. If you have trouble sleeping, try taking a warm bath before bed with two cups of Epsom salts
dissolved in the water; these are rich in magnesium and help to relax the body and the nervous system. Drinking a cup of
chamomile or passionflower tea can also help to calm the mind and induce restful sleep. For more suggestions for treating

As important as is proper rest, physical exercise is equally essential for healthy brain function. Aerobic exercise improves
circulation, which increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to your brain. Regular exercise also helps to prevent
atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, and other degenerative diseases that contribute to impaired mental function.
A daily walk is an excellent way to alleviate emotional stress. Yoga is also effective for cultivating mental clarity. The deep,
rhythmical breathing and gentle stretching of yoga help to calm the body and mind, increase circulation, and bring renewed
energy to the brain by enhancing oxygenation of the brain cells. Breathing exercises have been used for centuries by yoga
practitioners to cultivate increased mental clarity and focus.
Try the following yoga breathing exercise to refresh your mind. In this exercise, the exhalation is forceful, sharp, and quick,
while the inhalation is spontaneous, fluid, and easy.
