Over the ages, many learning disabilities have come to be recognized. Earlier, adults and children were considered slow learners, but with the increased awareness of various learning disabilities and symptoms, people have learned to understand and treat such disabilities. 
 
What is Dysnomia?
Dysnomia is a very peculiar disease. Patients cannot retrieve the required word from their memory when they need to speak or write or do both. Most of us experience forgetfulness in our lives. Dysnomia, an expressive language problem, becomes a medical condition when it begins interfering with the daily activities in an individual’s life. A few doctors disagree with this view. They attribute dysnomia to cranial trauma or as a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease.

Can a good diet control dysnomia?
Most doctors diagnose the condition using neuropsychological tests. That said, there is no special diet plan for dysnomia. The condition cannot be cured, but can certainly be controlled to a certain extent. Patients can learn to adapt to their daily chores with the help of special strategies. The power of the brain can be boosted with the help of a healthy diet.

Can herbs in the diet help boost memory and mental recollection in people with dysnomia?
Alternative medicine provides several alternatives that can improve the memory power as well as mental strength. Most alternative therapies recommend a balanced diet for dysnomia to improve body immunity and strength.

A few herbs commonly recommended in a dysnomia diet are:
  1. Gingko Biloba is one of the best herbs used to treat circulatory disorders and boost memory. The herb has been particularly useful in treating dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease and could help control dysnomia. If you have nutrition bars, soft drinks, and fruit smoothies, then gingko should form a part of your diet. Research is still being conducted to determine detailed effects.
  2. Soy and isoflavones help boost memory. Phytoestrogens present in soy are considered to boost mental function in men and women. Clinical trials are being conducted to check the efficiency of soy-based diets for dysnomia.
  3. Ginseng is another popular herb that could form a part of a memory boosting diet for dysnomia. Ginseng is used for improving stamina and concentration. Recent findings suggest that multivitamins and antioxidants can protect the brain and prevent the loss of memory associated with dysnomia. It is important to consult an allopathic physician and a naturopath to draw up a good diet plan for dysnomia. The diet should include herbs, medications, and mental exercises to control the problem.
