  • AKulreet Chaudhary, MD, Neurology, answered
    Ayurveda, the traditional medical system of India, recommends some powerful mind-empowering herbs like brahmi, which enhance all three aspects of the mind, dhi (data acquisition), dhriti (retention), and smriti (recall). Legendary Ayurvedic botanicals include arjuna myrobalans, known for its ability to strengthen the heart and emotions; holy basil, with “adaptogenic” properties to assist the body’s natural resistance to stressful situations; winter cherry, adaptogenic and very effective in balancing the mind and improving emotional stability; and ailanthus excelsea, which helps strengthen the body’s natural rejuvenative processes, hastening the replacement of dead or weak cells with fresh, vital ones. Ask your physician for herb recommendations best suited to your health needs.
