Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I cannot memorize anything despite learning many times or reciting the speech. I find it very difficult to study. I become desperate when I cannot memorize anything. This has been present for the last five years. Please help. I am currently on Laroxyl to help me sleep.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Memory and mind power depends on three aspects: Understanding, retention, and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able to understand what you read or learn. To understand, you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, and socializing coupled with systematic learning improve your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits, and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like Sudoku and jigsaw puzzles help too. Avocados, beetroots, blueberries, broccoli, celery, coconut oil, dark chocolate etc. are good for improving concentration and memory. I also suggest online education counseling.

Thank you.
