Memory Problems

Whether it’s forgetting you’ve where you put your keys or having someone’s name escape you, memory problems can crop up at the most inconvenient times and can be highly frustrating.

Although memory problems are commonly associated with old age, the truth is that memory loss can occur at any time and to anyone.

If you are looking to sharpen your memory skills to combat memory loss, then look no further than a home remedy. Natural cures are safe, easy to do and readily available to try at home.

Causes of Memory Loss:

Possible causes of memory loss include (but are not limited to):

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Toxicities (heavy metal poisoning)
  • Menopause
  • Pregnancy
  • Candida/ Yeast infection
  • Stress
  • Insomnia/ Lack of sleep
  • Low blood sugar

Natural Cures for Memory Problems:


Getting 30 minutes of exercise a day in the form of walking, swimming, jogging, and just about any other physical activity is a natural cure for memory loss that helps to increase blood flow and promote mental clarity.


Natural cures often involve alternative therapies. An easy home remedy for memory loss is meditation.

Sit comfortably in a chair and relax all of your muscles.

Make sure the environment is quiet and clear you mind, only focusing on your breathing.

Take long deep breaths, and exhale gently.

Do this for 5 minutes a day to improve focus and memory.


They resemble a brain for a reason! Walnuts contain fatty acids that improve motor skills and memory with remarkable results.

Eat 8-10 walnuts a day to keep your mind sharp.

Olive Oil:

The Mediterranean diet has long been a natural cure for everything from high blood pressure to memory loss, and with good reason.

The use of olive oil in the Mediterranean diet is highly beneficial when it comes to keeping memory function sharp and preventing many other age-related ailments.

Many people swear by a shot of olive oil first thing in the morning.


This fragrant herb has been noted as a home remedy for memory loss for centuries.

Steeped in tea or simply sniffed for an instant pick-me-up, basil promotes clear brain function.

It’s even better when eaten on a freshly made pizza!


Foods that are high in antioxidants are great home remedies for memory loss.

Spinach is high in antioxidants, iron and folic acid which are all important in maintaining a clear head and sharp memory.

Rosemary Tea:

Drinking one cup of rosemary tea a day is said to promote brain function and restore an ailing memory.

Memory Pills:

Clinical studies have shown that memory loss is literally “all in our heads”, as in double blind studies even the group receiving a placebo pill showed improved results.

Why not fill up a jar of your favorite sweets and label it “Memory Pills” and eat one every time you forget something?

Trials have shown that this is just as effective as taking prescription medication to improve memory loss.
