Memory loss can be frightening as you find your life fading away quietly. It is a big problem, and it is becoming bigger every day with hundreds of people getting affected all over the world. Whether it is minor forgetfulness or a major problem due to Alzheimer’s, it can in most cases feel like a death sentence.
One of the important things that you need to understand is that memory loss is not an inevitable part of aging. Many types of medical issues can cause memory loss.
Stress, anxiety, depression, lack of sleep, high blood pressure and diabetics, increase the risk of memory loss. The good news as per a new research is that memory loss is reversible.
Factors Affecting Memory
Excess carbohydrates and sugar can affect the brain. People with diabetics have a higher risk of Alzheimer’s. Due to this researchers have started calling Alzheimer’s Type 3 Diabetics.
Some people may have an immune reaction to gluten foods, and this can cause memory loss by inflaming the brain. Gluten intolerance is often associated with digestive symptoms, but it can affect neurological tissues too.
Eliminating carbohydrates, gluten and processed foods from the diet can help reverse memory loss.
Good sleep is necessary for healthy memory. Lack of sleep or poor sleep can cause memory loss.
Brain waves originating during sleep help store memories. Brain waves relocate memory from hippocampus (area of short-term memory) to the prefrontal cortex (area of long-term memory). Poor quality sleep or lack of sleep can disrupt the process, and this can cause memory loss.
Enhancing sleep allows proper storage of memories, and this can reduce forgetfulness. When the quality of sleep improves, symptoms of memory loss tend to disappear.
Brain function improves when you make diet and lifestyle changes. Good diet, proper sleep, and daily exercise can help reverse the symptoms of memory loss.
