Ayurveda a Solution for Loss of Memory or weak memory
Memory consists of remembering what has previously been learner. For example, when someone remembers a person’s name, for example, he demonstrates both that he learned the name at some previous time and he has retained it during the intervening time when he might never have once thought of it. Retention is inactive, remembering is active and both are included under the general head of memory.
Ayurveda considers both body and mind to be closely inter linked. According to Ayurveda, no phenomenon is exclusively physical or mental. The body or mind might predominate in one case and might work as a secondary factor in another case. Thus, for good memory as also for the treatment of loss of memory, both psychic and physical factors are held to be effective.
When the power of learning and remembering is impaired, to correct it, a drug brahmi is popularly used.it is of two types – one variety is called matsyakshi and the other variety is called mandukaparni. Both these herbs are equally useful in improving memory. They grow in marshy land near perennial streams. The juice of these plants is used in medicine. About 30 ml. of the juice is given to the patient twice daily on an empty stomach. Both of these are bitter and astringent. It is therefore administered with some honey to make it palatable. The fat soluble fraction of this drug is useful as a promoter of memory.
Cow’s ghee is well-known for its tonic effect on both the heart and brain. Therefore, medicated ghee is prepared by boiling brahmi, along with some other drugs, in pure cow’s ghee. This preparation is called brahmigrita.one teaspoonful of this ghee is given to the patient twice a day on empty stomach. This medicated ghee is added to a cup of warm milk, mixed with sugar, and taken after stirring well till it melts and gets well mixed with the milk. This preparation is found to be useful when the patient suffering from memory loss is emaciated
Other drug used for this condition is called vacha. This herb grows in marshy land. The rhizome or root of this plant is used in medicine. It is cleaned properly and then made to a fine powder by grinding.one teaspoonful of this powder should be given to the patient twice a day, mixed with honey or gow’s ghee. Many ayurvedic preparations for this promotion of memory like sarasvata churna, contain brahmi and vacha.
