Boosting Memory through Ayurveda

06 Sep

You won’t hesitate in appreciating your friend or a family member who’s got a sharp memory. Right? You might be getting amazed with their strength to recall things at times, but having a sharp memory rests on the perfect chemical balance and supply of nutrients to the brain – in the right quantity and at the right time.

A good memory is quite advantageous, especially when you are young it helps with learning, studying, and remembering better. As you grow older, your memory helps in recalling and completing personal tasks and office work. It makes your life easier.

By the time you enter your youth, your focus shifts from proper health care to personal and professional achievements. Health is dumped on the back seat.

Remember, bad health severely affects your memory. As you age, it starts to fail. You may start forgetting names, faces, phone numbers, important dates, etc. In critical cases, you might even forget turning off the gas-stove or air conditioner or locking the house while going out.

Relax! We do not want to scare you, but we want to share with you genuine Ayurvedic tips that will help you boost your memory. Wouldn’t you be happy, if you too had a memory better others?
We know you sure would be.

Before that let us take a look at the causes of poor memory:

  • Lack of nutrients to the brain.
  • Imbalance of chemicals in the brain.
  • Experiences affecting natural thought process.
  • Thoughts or feelings of insecurity causing mental stress.
  • Underactive thyroid gland.
  • Consuming unprescribed medicines.
  • Hormonal imbalances in women.
  • Suppressing natural urges such as hunger, thirst, sneezing, vomiting, yawning, sleeping, etc.
  • Aging.

You cannot reverse ageing, but you can change your dietary habits which can improve your memory. Here are a few tips.

  • Eat fresh vegetables and drink vegetable juices, preferably raw.
  • Include carrot and beetroot in your daily intake.
  • Eat 3-4 almonds daily.
  • Drink cow milk and cook with Ghee extracted from cow milk.
  • Bake your food with spices such as black pepper and turmeric.
  • Include herbs such as Brahmi, Bhringraj, Jatamansi, Shankhpushpi, and Ashwagandha in your diet.
  • Avoid spicy and pungent foods.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, refined sugar, refined oil.
  • Avoid consuming heavy to digest foods like eggs, meat, cheese, etc.
  • Inhibit lazy lifestyle and lazy habits.
  • Try to overcome mental (anger, fear for eg.), vocal (speaking loudly/shouting due to anger for eg), and physical (undisciplined actions for eg) urges. These urges can affect your memory very badly.

Besides dietary changes, Ayurveda recommends modifying your lifestyle that helps in improving your memory. Start exercising to improve the blood flow and flush out the toxins. Stimulate your mind by meditation, solving crossword puzzles, playing quizzes. Remember, sleep plays an important role in developing your memory. So, get 6-8 hours of good sleep. Avoid stress and emotional upheavals as far as possible. Lastly, massaging with your scalp and the soles with oil, preferably Bhringraj oil will help you to calm your nervous system.
