Cognitive decline as we age is a widely accepted truth. What makes this such an unfortunate fate is that it doesn’t have to happen. Whether you are struggling with memory loss due to increased stress, aging, or a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or Dementia, we want you to know that you are not permanently stuck in the fog of a poor memory.
The Brain And Your Memory
We often think that our learning capacity, our intelligence, our memory - our brain - are fixed. It’s easy to believe that there is a ceiling to the amount of information we can know, comprehend, and remember, however, that is not the case. Neuroplasticity is your brain’s ability to create new neural pathways, thus allowing you to retain information, recover from trauma or injury, and improve your cognitive function. Improving your memory involves creating and training these new neural pathways and we can help you tap into that capability.
Causes Of Memory Loss
Do you ever find yourself looking for words that are sitting on the tip of your tongue? Have you walked into a room and completely forgot why you went there in the first place? Many of us are no stranger to minor memory loss like this, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating. From infrequent, short-term memory loss where the thoughts likely were never cataloged by your brain in the first place to long-term memory loss due to Alzheimer’s or Dementia, the causes of memory loss run far and wide. Most commonly, we see memory loss stem from:
- Alcohol and drug use
- Sleep deprivation or insomnia
- Nutritional deficiency
- Head injury
There are countless other factors that may be contributing to your memory loss, which is why qEEG brain mapping can be key in unlocking your memory and improving your cognitive function. Diagnosing the “why” of your memory loss is the first step in taking back control of your cognitive function.
Are There Really Drug-Free Treatments For Alzheimer’s And Dementia?
Yes! We’ve worked closely with a number of families who’ve received the devastating diagnosis. We know how lost and hopeless it feels to hear that there’s no coming back from the cognitive decline you or your loved one is experiencing, but permanent fog is not always the case. When it comes to Alzheimer’s and Dementia diagnoses, we find that many patients have no problems with their processing speed, but rather it is a slowing in the brain function that is impacting their memory. Our drug-free, non-invasive treatments help patients forge alignment between these two essential functions of the brain to improve memory and quality of life.
