Tips On How to Improve Your Memory

thinking manAs we get older, we will notice that our ability to memorize or remember things is not as good as when we are young. If you are still sharp on things then good for you but what if you’re really noticing these things and even tend to be forgetful sometimes?

We always want our memories to stay sharp in order to continue to learn new things or updates around us. Learning never stops so we must always make sure to maintain and improve our memory. Here’s 7 tricks to improve your memory:

7 Tricks to Improve Your Memory

It was once believed that brain function peaked during early adulthood and then slowly declined, leading to lapses in memory and brain fog during your golden years.

Now it’s known that our modern lifestyle plays a significant role in contributing to cognitive decline, which is why exposure to toxins, chemicals, poor diet, lack of sleep, stress, and much more can actually hinder the functioning of your brain.

The flipside is also true in that a healthy lifestyle can support your brain health and even encourage your brain to grow new neurons, a process known as neurogenesis.

Your brain’s hippocampus, i.e. the memory center, is especially able to grow new cells and it’s now known that your hippocampus regenerates throughout your entire lifetime (even into your 90s), provided you give it the tools to do so.

These “tools” are primarily lifestyle-based, which is wonderful news. You don’t need an expensive prescription medication or any medical procedure at all to boost your brain, and your memory. You simply must try out the following tricks to improve your memory. Read full article here…

Aside from brain exercises and some habits that we need to practice in order to enhance our memory, we can also help improve it by eating what they call brain foods and they even have these so called beverages:

Enhance Your Memory With These 10 Brain Foods & Beverages!

Regardless of advances in technology, we still need to rely on the most massive computing system around – our brain – to remember ‘stuff’. So here they are folks, my top 10 Brain Foods…check them out!

With Microsoft Outlook, texting, emailing, iPhones and good old-fashioned sticky notes, who needs to remember anything? Just write it down. Or, alternatively, find an app for that. Preferably one that will beep, flash and shake like wild to remind you that it’s your sister’s birthday.

Regardless of advances in technology, we still need to rely on the most massive computing system around – our brain – to remember “stuff”. You see, there are those of us who do remember, which makes it much worse for those who don’t.

Like the guy you’ve known for 8 years, he dated your roommate, not once but twice, but still can’t get her name right. It’s Laurel, not Laura. Really, is it that difficult? Or your colleague who forgets just about everything, including the time you drove 30 minutes out of your way only to find out your meeting was canceled. See full article here…

No matter what age we are, there are always things that can help us improve or enhance our memories. Always remember these things and you won’t have to worry about remembering and keeping up with new things.

Chiropractic Care For Any Stage Of Life

We like to investigate a variety of natural treatments that help us feel better about ourselves. We know that when we feel physically stronger and fitter, that this in turn can help us feel mentally well too.

Chiropractic treatment took a while to be accepted amongst the wider medical community but has finally been welcomed and indeed recommended as an effective treatment that is also evidence based.

Some people believe that you have to be a healthy middle-aged person in order to benefit from chiropractic treatment, but as Dr Morgan Sheedy mentions in her article, this is certainly not true. In fact this method of treatment is extremely effective for pre-natal care.

Chiropractic care is good pre-natal care

“A woman’s body goes through so many changes during pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments can make sure everything in the spine, pelvis and low back are positioned correctly to allow the baby to develop normally,” Sheedy said. “And it can make delivery quicker and easier, too.”

Because of the changes in a woman’s body as the baby grows, the mother’s organs become constricted and have to work harder. The baby’s growth also puts stress on the low back in particular, and can cause lower back pain and sciatica.

If chiropractic treatment is safe for a heavily pregnant woman, it would seem to indicate that it should also be a safe method for treatment for other people who may fall into the category of being perhaps more ‘fragile’, such as when we get a little older.

Well interestingly enough, a recent study was carried out on people of an older age bracket, as described by Donald M Peterson here…

Chiropractic Safer than Medical for Seniors

An interesting study compared the risk of injury for seniors (age 66-99) who visited a doctor with neuromusculoskeletal complaints. The comparison was between cohorts (groups) that sought chiropractic care and those that sought medical care from a primary care physician.

So we know that chiropractic treatment is safe for expectant mothers, and those who are of an elderly persuasion. But what symptoms can this particular type of treatment help with?

Many of us are aware of the most common symptoms such as a bad back or a bad neck. Most of us already have a chiropractor at the top of the list when we suffer from those sorts of problems, but what exactly do they do when you go to see them? Well, The House Clinics explain things here…

How can Chiropractic help me?

Chiropractors use their hands to restore normal movement of restricted joints of the spine and limbs.  Incorrect joint movement leads to increased strain resulting in injury to the joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves and this will inevitably lead to pain.

By restoring normal movement to your joints you remove the strain on ligaments, relieve muscle spasm, improve how the spinal discs function and release nerves that may be ‘trapped’ so reducing pain.

All in all, chiropractic is a well established and evidence based method of helping you get rid of all of your aches and pains, regardless of your condition, or age. It can help prevent injuries as well as strengthen the body to full fitness and health.

Now you know a little bit more chiropractors, so it may be worth a visit to one that’s local to you!
