The purpose of this post is to disseminate information regarding how you and your loved ones can use natural medicine to overcome many different types of ailments, as well as helping to improve your general health and well-being.

I don’t think there is anybody reading this who would disagree that ANY improvement in memory is most welcome, and much appreciated by all! Well, how about a tremendous increase in memory – over 50% increase – and with absolutely minimal effort! This is now a reality as you will see, with no arduous “mental exercises” to perform, or other cognitive brain teasers. All you need do is pop a couple of small tabs daily, and YOU WILL see the benefits in memory in less than one month.

I have tried this wonder herb for over 4 months now and I have experienced what I estimate is at least 50% improvement in short-term memory functioning. I no longer need to write my “TO DO” lists every day, I just remember a lot of the things that I have to do – it is simply quite effortless! So what is this wonder herb that can improve memory by so much with so little effort? Read on, and I will reveal all her secrets!

GINGKO BILOBA – the memory herb!

Before we start to explore in detail everything modern research has discovered about what gingko can do and how it works, let’s stop to review, in simple terms, one of the bodily processes that are essential for good health – blood circulation. It cannot be overemphasized how vital blood circulation is to our health and well-being. The quality of circulation and how freely blood can move through the vessels to all parts of the body and how well it can carry nutrients (such as oxygen, sugars, enzymes and other life-giving nutrients) and remove the waste products of cellular metabolism directly affects the health of every cell in the body.

When all these nutrients are not supplied to the body every minute of the day and the wastes are not constantly removed, the body begins to age more rapidly. We begin to experience aches and pains, we get stiff, our joints start to weaken, our energy levels dwindle rapidly, our senses become dulled, and the brain and memory become sluggish. We cannot learn new things as well, we forget important telephone numbers, names of friends, and generally we have trouble keeping up with all the changes going on around us.

Today we are going to talk about how a wonderful herb can REALLY help to increase your memory power. Is there anyone that does not want to improve his or her memory? I don’t think so, as memory is crucial to everything that we learn every day, whether you are a student, professor or a lay person.

What is it?
The herb that I am talking about is Gingko biloba. Gingko is the oldest living tree species – over 150 million years old. It is also one of the most well researched herbs in the world, with over 400 studies to date.

What’s the evidence?
According to one German study, blood flow increased 57 per cent one hour after Gingko was taken. Another study found that gingko improved brain function by a striking 72 per cent on average after three months of use. In yet another study of 200 patients who endured memory problems for about 4 years, 71 per cent improved after 3 months on gingko, compared with 32 per cent on placebo (an inactive sugar pill).

What is it used for generally?
Apart from its memory enhancing qualities, it is also used by many Health care practitioners for the treatment of vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and a variety of neurological and circulation problems, including impotence. Gingko can also help to counteract the effects of aging, including mental fatigue and lack of energy.

How does Gingko work?
Gingko works by increasing blood flow to the brain and other body tissues by helping to dilate the tiny capillary networks that run throughout the body. It has two groups of active substances, flavonoids and terpene lactones, including ginkgolides A, B and C, bilobalide, quercetin and kaempferol.

What are the benefits?
As the blood circulation in the brain is improved with the continual use of gingko, this helps to improve short and long term memory, increased reaction time and improved mental clarity. It is now the natural treatment of choice in Europe for Alzheimer’s disease (a type of senile dementia) that includes difficulties of concentration, memory, absentmindedness and confusion, lack of energy, depressive mood, anxiety, dizziness, tinnitus and headache.

Other benefits from using gingko, based upon scientific studies, include: complications from stroke and skull injuries, the treatment of eye and ear disorders (can increase blood flow to the retina and slow down deterioration), improving circulation in the extremities, which is common in diabetics.

Who can use it?
Gingko is used both by clinical professionals with their patients, but also by the ordinary layperson to help boost memory, relieve tension and anxiety and improve mental alertness, elevate mood and restore energy. Research has shown that side effects are very rare and reversible. These include upset stomach and headaches in a very small handful of people. If in doubt, always ask your health practitioner.

How much do you need?
The dosage of gingko that was used in these studies was about 120 mg daily – the gingko that was used in these studies was a manufactured extract. A well-tested effective dose is a total of 120 milligrams daily, divided into three doses of 40-milligram pills. However, about 8 “00” capsules of the whole herb, good quality, dried and powdered, would provide the same amount of those active ingredients (plus whatever the researchers threw away) – and be more economical to boot.

The Butterfly

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So to help the butterfly, he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.

What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!

I asked for Strength………
And God gave me Difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for Wisdom………
And God gave me Problems to solve.

I asked for Prosperity………
And God gave me Brain and Brawn to work.

I asked for Courage………
And God gave me Danger to overcome.

I asked for Love………
And God gave me Troubled people to help.

I asked for Favors………
And God gave me Opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted ……..
I received everything I needed!

May God Bless You with unspeakable joy, not only in the world to come, but in this world also.

May your path be bright and full of light everywhere you go.

May God tell darkness that it must flee at your command.

And, I pray your feet will never stumble out of God’s plan.

May the desires of your heart come true, and may you experience Peace in everything you do.

May Goodness, Kindness, and Mercy come your way.

And, may you gain Wisdom and grow in the Lord everyday.

Please send this Blessing to those you care about. It may be just what they need to hear, at just the right time.

    Hi, I am truly elated to be blessed with such a refreshing word as the above. Especially today as Father’s (GOD’S) children seem to be timid to express how much he means to us.

    I will indeed share this with as many persons as I can in every way possible.

    Thank you very much for this very timely uplifting.

    Edith.
