Memory Loss Of






Source: Papers On Health

A more or less complete suspension of this faculty is
a not uncommon form of mental and bodily illness. We do not so much
mean the mere fading of past impressions as the loss of power to recall
them, so that we cannot recall what we wish to remember. This is a
result of any serious bodily weakness. It will come on through any
exhausting exertion, or prolonged and weakening illness. Stomach
disorder will also cause it. In this last case, drinking a little hot
water at intervals will usually put all right. A cup of very strong tea
will so derange the stomach in some cases as to cause temporary
suspension of memory. We mention these cases to prevent overdue alarm
at a perhaps sudden attack. The loss of mental power in such cases does
not always mean anything very serious.

Just as the stomach affects the memory, so also much use of memory and
mental strain tells severely upon the stomach. Digestive failures in
strictly temperate persons often arise from an overstrain of the mind.

We explain these two actions, the one of body on mind, and the other of
mind on body, so that care may be taken, on both sides, of the complex
nature we possess. If this is done, there will be little chance of
memory failing.
