HOME TREATMENT OF BRAIN WEAKNESS
Almonds are very valuable for restoring a poor memory caused by brain weakness. 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.
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.
Apples are useful in amnesia. The various chemical substances contained in this fruit such as vitamin B1, 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.
All fruits such as figs, grapes, oranges, and dates, rich in phosphorus are valuable mitigators of amnesia, as they invigorate the brain cells and tissues. Their intake is highly beneficial in loss of memory due to brain debility.
The use of cumin seeds is another valuable remedy for amnesia or dullness of memory. Three grams of black cumin seeds should be mixed with two teaspoonfuls of pure honey and taken once a day, preferably, in the morning.
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.
Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) is lipid-soluble and interacts with cell membranes, traps free radicals, and disrupts the pathway that leads to cell damage.
Vitamins B1 and B12-Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is water-soluble and necessary for the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
Rosemary (Romarinus officinalis)
Rosemary is considered to be the most remarkable remedy for loss of memory. It is 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 mental agility.
Brahmi Booti (Bacopa scrophulariaceae)
About seven grams of this herb should be dried in the shade and ground in water, along with seven kernels of almonds and half a gram of pepper. This mixture should be strained and sweetened with twenty-five gm of sugar. It should be drunk every morning for a fortnight on an empty stomach.
The herb sage has also been found beneficial in the treatment of a weak memory or loss of memory. It acts on the cortex of the brain, mitigates mental exhaustion and strengthens the ability to concentrate. A tea prepared from dried sage leaves can be used regularly for this purpose.
Ashwagandha - A medicinal plant used in India to treat a wide range of age-related disorders. Its most remarkable effect may involve its ability to preserve the health of the aging brain.
Grape seed extract may play a specific role in protecting the brain by preventing the kind of neuronal toxicity experienced by patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
Ginkgo biloba leaf extract is the most widely used in the treatment of memory loss in the elderly.
Vinpocetine is a synthetic compound extracted from the seeds of the periwinkle plant. It has several pharmacological properties, including antioxidant, vasodilator, and neuroprotective benefits.
Huperzine A., derived from the leaves of the Chinese club moss Huperzia serrata, demonstrates beneficial characteristics similar to those of ginkgo.

SOME AMAZING FACTS ABOUT BRAIN
1. Human brain, which is only 3% of our body's mass, uses 20% of all the oxygen we breathe?
2. Our brain needs a continuous supply of oxygen. A 10-minute loss of oxygen will usually cause significant damage to brain cells.
3. Our brain uses a fifth of all our blood. This is because it needs it to keep up with the heavy metabolic demands of its neurons. It needs both the glucose and the oxygen.
4. Our brain feels no pain. There are no nerves that register pain within the brain itself. Due to this reason, neurosurgeons can probe the brain even when a patient is conscious. By doing this, they can use feedback from the patient to identify important regions, such as those used for speech, or visualization.
5. The cerebellum, sometimes called the "little brain," weighs about 150 grams (a little over five ounces). Found at the lower back side of brain, its function is to maintain posture, to walk, and to perform any coordinated movements. It may also play a role in your sense of smell. The human brain weighs an average of a little over three pounds, or 1.4 kilograms. Albert Einstein's brain may have been smaller than average, because he was smaller in body size than average. There is a general correlation between body size and the size of our brains.
6. An elephant's brain is about six times as large as a human brain. However, in relation to body size, humans have the largest brain of all the animals, averaging about 2% of body weight.
7. There are about 100,000 miles of blood vessels in the brain. If they were stretched out they could measure four times the circle of the earth.
8. An average sized brain has about 100 billion neurons.
9. Brain loses about 85,000 neurons each day. Fortunately, this is covered up due to the built-in redundancies and the fact that even after three years this loss adds up to less than 1% of the total.
10. Our brain continues to produce new neurons throughout our life. It does so in response to stimulation created by brain improving exercises, such as learning something new, a language, music, mathematical problem etc. The scientists agree that brain is a plastic muscle, which grows with exercise; in the same way our body muscles grow with exercise. In an experiment, it was discovered that the brains of laboratory rats showed physical changes when their environment was enriched with toys such as ladders and wheels, as well as other rats for company. Their brains were larger by 4% than those of another group of rats that were kept in ordinary environment.
11. Brain does not contain any fats in it like the rest of our body.
12. Brain consumes 40% of water consumed by the body. It may need about six glasses or one and a half liter of water per day. Therefore, on an average, we should drink at least 15 glasses of water to make our brain function to it optimum capacity. But if we drink higher quantity of water, it is even more useful, as it is helpful not only in flushing out the rejects from our body, but in further increasing brain efficiency.
13. A study has shown that the children of mothers, who frequently speak to them, learn about 300 more words by the age of 2 as compared to the children whose mothers rarely speak to them.
14. Our brain is generally more active and thinks more efficiently at night than during the day.
15. Our human brain generates more electric impulses in one day than all the telephones of world put together.
