Recently, I read an article for an e-book about improving memory. Generally, I have a skeptical eye for anything that projects to cure or even help memory loss. I’ve seen too many photos of the plaques and tangles that eventually robbed my Mom of all memory.
When I have the slightest lapse of memory now, it makes me pause and ask what can I do now? Play more games, work more crossword puzzles, spend more hours on the computer. I know those things are beneficial to keep an active mind, but do they really work?
In October of last year the American Academy of Neurology came out with this stunning headline:
“Occasional Memory Loss Tied to Lower Brain Volume”
The study released in Neurology journal shows that you are not alone: of the 500 people tested aged over fifty, 453 of them had occasional memory or thinking problems. What is disturbing and exciting is that this was linked to smaller brain volumes. It is disturbing because it reveals that occasional memory lapses and thinking problems may be the earliest indication of brain decay and shrinkage. It is exciting because new research shows that the brain can be trained to grow again – with the right training you can increase the physical size of your brain.
Beginning to forget things is not enough to diagnose Alzheimer’s and in most cases Alzheimer’s is not the cause.
But it is a wake-up call.
Either your brain is out of shape and the wiring patterns are decaying or you are not using your brain effectively enough. You can recover from both of these causes with the correct training.
“You Can recover from both of these causes with the correct training.” That was music to my ears. And the blurb from the front of the e-book seems to offer a way to do just that–
“Improve Your Memory, Sharpen Your Thinking, Insure Your Brain Against Future Losses and Actually Regrow Your Brain”
Seven Second Memory
by Dr. Allison Lamont and Gillian M. Eadie
Speaks about the way the brain works. “– it’s not the number of brain cells that determines your intelligence, memory and your ability to learn new skills – NO – it’s the number of connections between the cells.”
Another exciting chapter is: “Insure Our Brain Against Future Losses”
With the Memory Capacity Improvement techniques, in this e-book, we can turn our brain into a powerhouse of memories.
If you’d like to read more about these techniques for improving your memory and growing your brain, the information can be found here. It’s an exciting and logical way to learn how to “regain lost performance, perform better than you did when you were years younger – and better than you ever have. …more information
