Memory Frustration and a Healthy Body

I have to vent and educate in this article/blog. I get EXTREMLY FRUSTRATED BY, and made fun of, for my poor memory both of which are getting worse.

Itís been said that people who have suffered head injuries, have seizures, take anticonvulsants, or suffer any kind of chronic pain tend to be more forgetful. The article by Daniel Pendick refers to epilepsy as a storm in the brain and that memory loss is one of the most common and disabling effects of epilepsy. I want to add that itís even more damaging in a person with active epilepsy, i.e. still having seizures not in the ones they had in a distance past.
Also, chronic pain and anti-convulsants can lead to brain shrinkage and degradation of neurons. People with emotional distress and chronic pain are more susceptible to brain atrophy. Varying pains have varying effects on brain and affects different regions in our brain. Such conditions can be improved and memory can be improvised by realistic psychotherapy and medication. If youíre already taking pain medicine or AEDs then the taking meds option is not something you or I want to do.
It is often observed that we remember traumatic events better than happier moments. Of course, I forget both happy and not so happy eventís that have occurred in my life and at times that may be a good thing. Itís the things I did yesterday or last week that frustrates me beyond no end. A study is being used now to improve memory conditions by treating our brains with a kind of protein to make our memory everlasting. Another study goes on to prove that zinc helps to improve memory especially in children. This study has been used at the grass root level by more health drink and medical supplement manufacturers who target their zinc fortified drinks, cereal, and nutritional supplements to adolescents.
There are ayurvedic, alternative medicine, cures in the market that claim to guarantee similar results like "Memocare", http://www.ayurvediccure.com/memocarecapsules.htm, This product is a mix of herbs that promises to reduce stress and anxiety. It also promises to accelerate brain function and improve memory. There are hosts of other companies too offering similar promises like Brain quicken that claims to be effective in one hour but it mainly targets to improve short-term memory. Its constituents are a complex mix of nutrients and other propriety constituents.
The reliability of memory is still a question as in most cases it is distorted by suggestions. The certainty of memory depends on the encryption it had on the minds of individuals and the duration too. Diminishing memory is a result of neurons malfunction, there are three ways that can help us identify factors that can stimulate are memory. We should figure out ways to stop neurons from dying and stimulate growth of new neurons and by getting to have the existing neurons function efficiently. Memory i.e., is a chemical compound known as Ampakines that enhances neurons functioning. Other generic ways to improve memory is to start taking memory training and practicing games such as cross words, brainteasers and other memory exercises. Apart from them consuming healthy diet rich in Omega 3 fats and antioxidants also helps. Five small meal patterns should be followed as it prevents blood sugar from lowering i.e the primary source of energy to the brain. Jogging and brisk walks helps in blood circulation and have been proved to reduce the risk of Alzheimer disease. Getting proper sleep and stress reduction helps curtailing the production of cortisol in our body that harms memory and is known to shrink memory center in brain.

Regular practice helps us give a jog to our memory that is as fruitful as the physical jogging. We should let our brain run thru as many facts as it can to retain and associate each memory with some picture, color or number to make it easier for recall. But accuracy of recall depends on proper functioning of three aspects of the brain that form, stores, and receives memory.
So next time, for me itís all the time, your memory fails you just know there is help.
