If Learning Fails: a Memory Problem in Children with Epilepsy

„I feel like my school-age child is left behind in writing. The letters described are interchanged, sometimes read in the opposite direction. Reading is not his strength either, and it is difficult for him to remember the text read a few minutes earlier. I think all of this is hindering his integration into school. It affects his mood because he doesn’t feel productive, he doesn’t feel motivated to improve.”

Do you experience similar things with your child and wonder how could you help with that problem? Then you are in the right place. The learning disability can be treated by Ayurveda. The Neeraj Epilepsy Clinic provides a personalized, comprehensive treatment with the Combination of Ayurvedic + Regular Psychological Counseling + Nature Therapy + Prayers = Successful Treatment available, accessible, and affordable to patients.

Ayurveda and the Memory of your child

Memory impairments in children can interfere with daily functioning, lead to poor academic achievement, and hinder the acquisition of new abilities.

By enhancing memory and mental performance, Ayurveda has a safe and long-term impact on your child's mental health. Poor memory and IQ can be caused by a variety of factors, the most common of which are malnutrition and chemical imbalances in brain activities, which can be physiological or altered by medicines and antibodies.

Memory issues are caused by a vitiated kapha dosha, which causes a dull mind and indifference to things.

Because vata is important for all neurological functions and memory, a vitiated vata dosha can cause tension and confusion, obstructing knowledge and memory.

Both vata and kapha should be harmonized in order to boost your child's memory. A balanced vata and kapha dosha helps to improve memory, while a balanced pitta dosha helps to improve mental sharpness and IQ.

The Ayurvedic technique balances the doshas by altering one's lifestyle, taking medications, and eliminating poisons from one's body and mind.

Will my child have learning and behavioral issues?

Children with epilepsy are more likely to have learning and behavioral challenges than children who do not have epilepsy. Such children require special care, and parents are urged to follow certain parenting rules.

As a parent, it is critical to research the child's developmental milestones. If a difference is discovered, it is vital to see a doctor for a screening.

Some of the signs of a learning problem include:

• Difficulty learning the alphabet.
• Unable to tell the difference between similar words.
• Unable to comprehend what they are reading.
• Handwriting is messy.
• Unable to comprehend humor.
• Have trouble following directions.

What can I do if I suspect my child is having learning difficulties?

To ensure that your child's mental health remains optimal till adulthood, you must start early with the correct food and instill the right behaviors in him/her.

To ensure optimal mental health, your child should avoid the following:

• Excessive consumption of ice cream, chocolate, cold beverages, dairy products, and other cold foods. Their difficulties are exacerbated further by the meals and beverages they consume. Ice cream, chilled drinks, and dairy items all enhance vata in the body. In Ayurveda, an irritated vata condition causes memory loss, which is one of the reasons why a youngster does not recall his or her lessons.
• Chips, cookies, processed and tinned meals, etc. Junk food should be avoided at all costs because it is harmful to the digestive system.
• Foods devoid of prana, or life power, such as meat, stale food, or food that has not been freshly prepared.
• Getting up late and staying up late playing video games or watching TV.
• Excessive loud music, as well as stimulating liquids such as tea, coffee, and hot chocolate

Ayurveda Can Assist Students in Exam Preparation Anxiety and Stress

Memory problems can also be caused by the emotional and mood degeneration that is commonly associated with epilepsy, which is usually caused by stress, anxiety, or sadness.

Anxiety can impair a student's ability to think clearly. If the child is under too much strain, he will most likely not perform to his full potential.

Students require additional assistance from family and friends. The role of parents is critical in the life of a child. Parents should spend more time with their children. This would aid children in overcoming their worries and controlling their overthinking.

How to Improve Memory

The human brain can store information almost indefinitely, but we also need to pay attention to the health of the brain:
       • Get enough sleep
       • Eat healthy foods
      • Balance the body's energies.
       • Working out (Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama)
Note: Although Pranayam and Yoga are beneficial, they should not be done by young children.

Herbs that Aid Memory and Brain Health

Ayurvedic medications have a high success rate in treating learning and mental problems. Herbal remedies function by relaxing the nerves and balancing all three doshas, which aids a child's learning handicap.

Some herbs have been shown in studies to aid learning by:
      • Managing the dopamine levels in the system.
       • Reducing stress to improve concentration.
       • Boosting antioxidant activity in the body.
       • promoting better sleep.
       • Assisting with anxiety relief.

Shankhapushpi , which is contained in the Rasayana, is particularly beneficial in improving memory, soothing the mind, and lowering worry and anxiety. It also aids in the improvement of the circadian rhythm, which is required for the brain to function properly.
Ashwagandha aids in the reduction of stress and the strengthening of the nervous system.
Brahmi helps to strengthen the neurological system, increase focus and intelligence, and has a cooling impact on the body.
Vacha boosts memory and speaking.

Finally, here are a few easy-to-prepare home remedies for improving Memory:

Soak 7–8 almonds in 7–8 cups of water overnight (this helps the nutrients be easily absorbed by the body). You can consume them on an empty stomach the next morning or blend them with milk.
A few drops of almond oil in the nose can help lubricate nasal passageways, improve sleep, and improve memory.
A cup of ash gourd juice first thing in the morning is a little-known memory booster.
Including black sesame in your salads and vegetables might also help improve brain function.
Ghee has the ability to boost memory. Ghee from cows has memory-booster effects. Consistently consume it.
