Memory loss probably affects
the majority of us in one way or another. More often than not, it
a momentary memory lapse; nothing to worry about – it happens
to the best of us. However, when memory lapses begin to become a
regular occurrence, it is wise to dig a little deeper and seek .
Short-term memory provides a small storage space for daily tasks and lists, and is more likely to be affected with age. Forgetfulness is not a symptom of a serious problem, unless it becomes debilitating or accompanied by other symptoms of mental instability such as confusion or behavioral changes.
Memory is also affected by lack of sleep or by stress and anxiety. Conversely, if the mind is dull from depression or boredom, short-term memory becomes rusty from lack of use. Long-term memory tends to remain stable with age. Childhood memories remain in the mind better than adult memories.
Memory can be affected by a number of factors and there are many possible causes of patches of memory being lost, some more sinister than others. A high fever, an attack of epilepsy, severe alcohol intoxication or surgery can erase memory. A stroke can cause sudden memory loss (accompanied by other neurological symptoms, such as dizziness, visual changes, buckling knees or slurred speech.) A passing loss of short-term memory, or ischemic attack, lasts only a few minutes and can precede a stroke.
Memory problems can also be the result of deeper-rooted issues such as brain disease, tumors, or the onset of a disease such as Alzheimer’s that causes brain cell deterioration. Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia are sources of memory loss in older persons and are associated with the gradual erosion of the personality. Sufferers who have any doubts at all should always seek medical advice with regards to continued memory loss.
affect memory, including prescription drugs, such as sleeping
pills and antidepressants, and chronic alcohol abuse. Nutritional
deficiencies should also be evaluated, especially in older people
who do not always eat well. Problems with memory are often associated
with physical fatigue that causes inattention. Some women experience
memory loss in conjunction with menopause as a result of hormonal
imbalances. Usually short-term memory loss is a side-effect of
too much stress and an overload of information. There are many
illnesses related to fatigue and poor attention span, including
anemia, underactive thyroid and hyperactivity.
Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that what and how much we eat profoundly affects growth, development, aging, and the ability to enjoy life to its fullest. Dietary intake and lack of exercise is linked to risks for development of a variety of common, chronic diseases that are disabling and life-threatening.
those diseases linked strongly to diet, the cost for medical treatment and care exceeds $200 billion per year. The annual economic impact of cardiovascular disease in the U.S. exceeds $80 billion, that of obesity exceeds $86 billion, osteoporosis $10 billion for care alone, cancer $104 billion, and cataract surgery $4 billion. The American Cancer Society estimated in 1996 that one-third of the 500,000 cancer deaths annually in the U.S. are due to a variety of dietary factors.
Dietetics has a long history that
stretches back at least to Hippocrates, who regarded it as virtually
inseparable from medicine. Four of the 10 leading causes of death in
the United States are diet-related conditions - diabetes, heart disease,
stroke and cancer. The effort to drive health care costs down has encouraged
many physicians to shift their focus from the treatment of diseases
to their prevention, which, of course, involves nutrition. There is
no question that better nutrition can result in delaying the onset
of many chronic diseases and significantly improve the quality of life.
often have you asked yourself the question:
with poor memory is not confined to reading.
It is not ONLY remembering what you have now read, but remembering what you read yesterday, last week, a month ago, a year ago, and so on.
The problem is not because you are running out of brain storage space. Even when we reach old age, we still have plenty of unused brain capacity available.
The problem is not TIME. Information simply cannot "leak" out of our ears over time. Why can we remember vivid details of childhood yet the details of last week's newspaper are vague? We remember perfect details of scenes that only happened once, yet information drummed into the brain just simply will not "stick".
So, what Perhaps is the cause of the memory problem?
Every computer's hard drive is organized. The aim of loading information onto the hard drive is not to leave it there, untouched and inaccessible, but to use it. Much thought was put into how the information will be filed away so that when it is needed it can be accessed quickly and easily. Your computer has a filing system to access all information placed in any possible location.
The key to enhancing human memory is very similar to the thinking behind a hard drive's storage and retrieval system. To now, you have been uploading your information to your brain without an organized system. Getting the information in is no problem; it’s the retrieval process that needs polishing.

Note: the possible range of benefits listed above are based upon years of experience working with CES. Because there are currently no published research studies involving the Alph-Theta Stim individual results will vary and must be considered personal and subjective. Typically, individuals will report a range of improvements - from very substantial - to very little.
Century Medicine & Learning
Slow learners and, or, those with
impaired nervous system development may have their brains and nervous
system jumpstarted. Little did we know back in the 1950s when the movie,
Forbidden Planet, with Leslie Nielson, Ann Francis and Walter Pidgeon,
that the Krell technology to stimulate brain growth, with a form of
cranial electrical stimulation, might be in use in the 21st century.
Cranial electrical stimulation (CES) may improve memory, attention and focus; important studies are emerging on the uses of mild electrical current to enhance cognition and aspects of intelligence.
While inducing replenishment of general deficiency states through direct oral supplementation, particularly necessary substrates may be electroporated into brain and nervous tissue via electroporation through cranial electrical nerve stimulation, via an electrical current. This is the equivalent, by analogy, to putting the plug of a toaster into an electric socket in order to toast the bread.
For those of you that still think this is voodoo medicine, do a google search for electroporation, electropharmacology and cell biomembrane transport. Also do a PUB MED search for Saul Liss, PhD, to pull up actual abstracts.
The brain is a highly pliant, flexible organ that has greater capacity than we ever imagined.....
Dr. Tomatis found that low-frequency sounds act as brain drains. Low frequency noise from traffic, airports, or construction sites not only induce hearing loss, but can actually drain the brain of energy. Sound pollution is yet another contributor to memory smog. Low pounding sounds of rock music are designed to force you into mechanical movement. Tomatis says this rock music can discharge your mental and physical energy. European studies show noxious environmental noise can cause high blood pressure and heart disease.
Magnetic brain mapping reveals the specific areas of the brain tuned to specific tone frequencies. It seems that our brains are like tuning forks. As Drs. Sam Williamson and Lloyd Kauffman of New York University beam different tones at the brain, magnetic fields shifted, indicating that different frequencies do resonate different brain areas. Because low frequency sound discharges brain/body energy, when Tomatis linked his Electronic Ear with classical music, he found benefits increased when notes in the music under 2000 Hz were filtered out.
This opening paragraph in the introduction of Alfred Tomatis seminal work provides a basis for the invigorating clearness ahead. Tomatis has opened a high-tech route to the inner power of sound that holds a super power to expand mental ability, to heal and to energize. According to his work, the design of the ear promotes not only hearing, but energizes the brain and the body! This discovery emerged from studies of Bach, Mozart, Gregorian chants and the singing of Om as readouts on scientific instruments demonstrating the release of fatigue, burnout, and stress as indicated by electrical potential. The central gray nuclei cells in the brain become low in electrical potential. The above list of sounds regenerate the brain's electricity as measured by EEG patterns. In particular, the high frequency sounds power this recharge. In particular the 24,600 long-stemmed Corti cells in the cochlea of the inner ear produce the energy that flows to the brain and the vestibular branch of the auditory nerve. This high frequency sound energizes the brain and releases muscle tension. Even posture alters for the better.
Cultural aspects don't permit Westerners
to fully appreciate this high-frequency lift; East Europeans that have
not been assaulted with loud noise pollution easily get this burst
of vitality. According to Tomatis, a major reason for feeling tired
stems from the inability to hear the higher pitched sounds needed to
properly reenergize us.
Work with geraniums
proved that the lower end of energy is 5,000 hz. When music was "spiked" with
giant cricket sounding frequencies of 5,000 and sprayed with nutrients
the plants absorbed the nutrients with 700% greater efficiency. The
sprang up to a 99% growth increase and some even waltzed into the Guiness
Book of World Records. The "musical fertilizer" transformed
farms with severely depleted soil. Other extraordinary work by independent
researchers exhaustively proves these results and extends the boundaries
of this imaginative technique
What we are trying to show here is that, possibly with the correct diet, some good supplements and a very good CES/FREQUENCY SYSTEM, One can by all accounts, and, our many years of experience, improve your memory in a high percentage of cases...
