homeopathy for memory loss


This homeopathic medicines listed below are simply the ones that are most often used for memory loss. There are hundreds of other medicines that may be better suited for you. What the list does show, however, is that each homeopathic medicine has its own personality and character. 

Ambra Grisea helps those who are shy and easily embarrassed. They blush easily, dread the company of unfamiliar people, are anxious about what people think of them, and want to be left alone. While forgetful and dreamy, they may also jump from one subject to another when talking, or ask questions without waiting for an answer. They find it difficult to understand what has just been read and have trouble with calculations – even simple mathematics. Sometimes they will sit for hours or days crying from sadness. Premature aging and senility often indicates the need for Ambra Grisea.


Anacadium Orientale is for those who have sudden loss of memory as though something is blocking their thoughts. They become hesitant, suddenly forget the names of people and things, and can even feel as if they are going insane. It’s a useful remedy for the sudden forgetfulness of anxious and under-confident students before an exam but also treats forms of senile dementia. Anacadium types are often confused about their identity, feeling and behaving as if they have ‘an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other.’ They can be cruel, irritable and hard-hearted with a tendency to swear but also struggle with lack confidence or feeling helpless, hopeless and needy.


Cannabis Indica helps those whose memory-related symptoms are very similar to someone who smokes marijuana. Things seem unreal to the point of disorientation or ecstasy and they may describe out of body experiences or say their body, or parts of their body, feel as if floating. The person is forgetful, often unable to finish a sentence and has a fear of losing control and of insanity. They feel confused and lose their way even in well-known streets.


Helleborus Niger helps for dullness, haziness and blankness of mind. It is often needed for poor memory following a stroke. The person finds it hard to concentrate and has a weakness of memory for what was just read, said or done. Often, things are not heard or seen properly. They are apathetic, concentration is difficult and they answer slowly.


Lycopodium Clavatum suits those who once may have enjoyed intellectual activities but, because of their gradually deteriorating memory, now feel confused. It also helps people with dyslexia, learning difficulties and behavioural problems. They often misspell words or misplace words or syllables while talking. They are bossy and rude at home, irritable in the morning on waking, but polite and friendly with strangers. 


Nux Moschata is indicated for those who feel vague or spaced-out – as if intoxicated. They are absent-minded, forgetful of what they were about to do, and use the wrong words, especially during headaches. Their minds are dull and they feel confused or bewildered. Thoughts suddenly vanish while talking, reading or writing and there may be complete loss of memory about the past.


Phosphoricum Acidum is for those who slip into indifference and apathy from grief or a significant disappointment. They brood, avoid talking to people, and dread the future. They cannot collect their thoughts, answer slowly, and are forgetful – especially for words – they hunt for words when talking. Their weakness of memory gradually leads to physical weakness.


Sulphur is for those who become increasingly absent-minded and find it difficult to concentrate. They have trouble thinking of correct words when talking or writing, often replacing correct words with incorrect ones. They may also repeat the question before answering to give their brain time to catch up and have a reputation of being itchy, lazy, tired, or untidy.
