Temporary memory loss or amnesia can be caused by severe shock often following an accident, and sometimes illness. Meningitis, epilepsy or brain tumour can trigger amnesia.

In Chinese Medicine amnesia is considered a kidney weakness, so the “essence” of the kidney is toned with the eucommia bark, wolfberry seed, mulberry fruit or dodder seed. Once the function of the kidney has been strengthened, it will nourish the brain, improving the memory. A common Chinese Medicine saying is that “kidneys nourish the marrow and marrow feeds the brain”.
