Are You Experiencing Memory Loss or Cognitive Decline? You Can Reverse the Damage!
Memory Loss Major Symptoms include: • It’s increasingly difficult to remember things, express thoughts or make decisions. • You sometimes feel like your brain is foggy • You get embarrassed in social situations, concerned that you may not remember names or something someone told you. • You suspect you’re just not as sharp as you used to be. • Misplacing things, forgetting whether or not you paid your bills, or not feeling on top of everything you should be. These feelings can cause fatigue, depression, isolation, insecurity, and general lackluster for life.
Common things that can cause memory loss: • Medications. A number of prescription and over-the-counter medications can interfere with or cause loss of memory. These can include: antidepressants, antihistamines, anti-anxiety medications, muscle relaxants, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and pain medications given after surgery. • Smoking. Harms memory by reducing the amount of oxygen that gets to the brain. Studies have shown that people who smoke find it more difficult to put faces with names than nonsmokers. • Sleep Deprivation. Both quantity and quality of sleep are important to memory. Getting too little sleep or waking frequently in the night can lead to fatigue, which interferes with the ability to consolidate and retrieve information. • Depression & Stress. Being stressed, anxious or depressed can make it difficult to pay attention and focus, which can affect concentration and memory.  Stress caused by an emotional trauma can also lead to memory loss. • Nutritional deficiency. Good nutrition -- including high-quality proteins and fats -- is important to proper brain function. Deficiencies in vitamin B1 and B12 specifically can affect memory. • Head injury. A severe hit to the head -- from a fall or automobile accident, for example -- can injure the brain and cause both short- and long-term memory loss. Memory may gradually improve over time. • Stroke. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is stopped due to the blockage of a blood vessel to the brain or leakage of a vessel into the brain. Strokes often cause short-term memory loss.  A person who has had a stroke may have vivid memories of childhood events but be unable to recall what he or she had for lunch. • Dementia. Dementia is the name for progressive loss of memory and other aspects of thinking that are severe enough to interfere with the ability to function in daily activities. Although there are many causes of dementia -- including blood vessel disease, drug or alcohol abuse, or other causes of damage to the brain -- the most common and familiar is Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is characterized by a progressive loss of brain cells and other irregularities of the brain. • Other causes. Other possible causes of memory loss include an under active or over active thyroid gland and infections can affect the brain.
• Acupuncture – Acupuncture can be extremely quick and effective in reducing the symptoms such as pain, cognitive function, nerve function and assists in healthy sleep patterns. • Chiropractic Manipulation – Adjustments can help realign the the spine, restoring optimal nerve function and blood flow. • Diet / Nutritional Supplements – Diet changes are essential to reduce inflammation in the body, cutting out sugar, preservatives, caffeine etc., give the body the best chance to detox and  begin the process of healing. Hand picked Supplements feed the body’s needs, and promote optimum health • Neurofeedback - An effective program that allows those suffering from memory loss to become actively involved in his or her own recovery, promoting healthy brain function.  Neurofeedback techniques monitor brain wave activity, allowing our doctors to correct the waves that may be out of sync with the body’s natural frequency. Neurofeedback is an all natural,                      non- invasive way to train the brain and promote healthy improved function. Neurofeedback Training offers rewards through visual, auditory and tactile training or feedback. This training helps correct brainwave activity and improves brain to body connectivity making you stronger, and creating better functionality. It is personal training for the brain! Neurofeedback Can Improve: • Improve Brain-Body Connection • Improve Mental Clarity • Improve Sleep Rhythm When the imbalance is removed and brainwaves are regulated, cognitive function improves. The result is an improved ability to remember. Many complex factors contribute to declining memory, including brain wave imbalance. Neurofeedback can help to restore brainwave balance, when the imbalance is removed and brainwaves are regulated, cognitive function improves. The result is an improved ability to remember.
