Tips For Improving Memory

There are so many ways to keep your memory sharp besides the old saying use it or lose it. I have found the following to be useful for my self and my patients…

Physical exercise                                                    

Believe it or not, when you’re exercising your body, you’re exercising your mind as well. Aerobic exercise gets your blood pumping, which increases the oxygen going to your brain and lowers your risk of disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease that can lead to memory loss. If you can, start with some exercise in the morning. This can clear your head right off the bat to stay focused and alert during the day. Exercises that require coordination are especially helpful for keeping the mind active such as simply throwing a ball back and forth. 
I have also found the Brain Gym methods very useful http://braingym.org/

2. Adequate sleep

Sleep is one of the best ways to make sure your brain and memory are in tip-top shape on a daily basis. To get the most out of your sleep, aim for 7.5-9 hours every night. Make sure to shut off the electronics at least an hour before bed to help the mind shut off as well. Try to limit your caffeine and alcohol intake earlier in the day. Both can result in a shallow sleep. 
Acupuncture is a great way to improve your quality and quantity of sleep. Here is a link to one such study http://www.healthcmi.com/Acupuncture-Continuing-Education-News/1550-acupuncture-relieves-insomnia-and-extends-sleep

3. Keep your brain stimulated

Research has shown that keeping mental stimulation as we age is very important for lowering the risk of dementia. Stay social, interact with others, learn new skills, play mind-exercise games like crossword puzzles or Sudoku. Interacting with others and continuing to learn is vital for keeping the brain healthy at any age.

4. Decrease stress

Chronic stress can not only make someone miserable, but also cause serious long term effects. Stress over time has been shown to destroy brain cells and damage the area of the brain that creates new memories and recalls past ones. To avoid memory loss, minimize your stress. Don’t take on too many tasks if they overwhelm you, sometimes it is okay to say no. Make sure you have outlets to relieve stress whether it is physical exercise or talking with someone about your frustrations. Acupuncture has a profound effect on relieving stress and helping you keep that “zen” feeling all day long.

5. Superfoods and herbs are super important

Certain superfoods have shown to be significant in preventing memory loss. Make sure to get your 8-10 fruit and vegetable servings in, many are filled with antioxidants that help protect your brain cells. Eat more foods with omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, tuna and foods cooked with olive oil. Some of my favorite herbs and foods for improving memory and cognition are: ginkgo biloba, ginseng, gotu kola, green tea, rosemary, goji berrries, bacopa and periwinkle.

The mother of all antioxidants is GLUTATHIONE and is only made by our body, not consumed in our diet. To help your body make more glutathione, try consuming avocados, asparagus, broccoli, garlic, raw eggs, spinach, tomatoes, and tumeric. Another sure fire way to boost glutathione by over 500% is by consuming 2 ounces twice a day of Asea~ the redox signaling drink. It is a scientific breakthrough that is improving peoples health all over the globe…including my own! I have been consuming Asea and its partner the topical gel called Renu 28 for almost 3 months now. So far I have noticed: 90 % decrease in eye floaters, 90% reduction in muscle & joint pain from a tick borne illness, better sleep, 95% improvement in energy levels, eczema is gone, palpitations are 98% gone, scars are disappearing, wrinkles and cellulite are disappearing, circulation has improved 90%, endurance and stamina has increased 85%, mood is balanced, menses are 90% less painful, memory is better, cognition is better, allergies are less, dry skin is much less, digestion is better, my hair and nails are growing twice as fast and gallbladder pain is less. This stuff is amazing!

There are over 100 ailments associated with low glutathione levels such as: ADD, Aging, ALS, Alzheimer’s, Autism, CFS, Diabetes, MS, Neurodegenerative disorders and trauma.

Increase your energy, strengthen your immune system, increase your mental focus and clarity, decrease your muscle/joint discomfort and improve your athletic performance with GLUTATHIONE.
