Ignite Your Nervous System

What is the difference between age related memory decline, and something more serious? Where is our ounce of prevention? vs. a pound of cure?

As we advance in years, our nervous tissue need a little more time to ignite. It’s a small amount in the beginning- As time goes by, the time it takes to fire the neurons seems to gap wider and wider. What you may notice is a slower process to bring what used to feel like a current event, to mind, some will notice changes earlier than others, due to their lifestyle choices. Another theory, is the theory of over, or hyper stimulation. Our threshold or tolerance for the pace of our thoughts or the amount it takes to get a thought out changes, leaving us frustrated and feeling old. Some might even say, you are just getting wiser and therefore have a file cabinet larger than in the past… Whatever your theory, Memory decline and problems with mental focus are a normal part of aging. However, Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. Alzheimer’s is progressive and non-reversible. The slow death of neurons on the Alzheimer’s patient is where we store memories, learning and thought take place as well as language development.

Taking a scientifically backed nutraceutical like ginkgo ( CI in the patient at risk for TIA), Bacopa, Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid are all beneficial in the prevention of age related memory loss. New studies on Curcumin, Selenium and Omega III fatty acids are showing promise in the care and prevention of Alzheimer’s
