Most of us complain at some time about our poor memories – especially when we forget things that are important, such as birthdays, anniversaries and meetings.

Memory loss probably affects the majority of us in one way or another. More often than not, it is 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

"Sorry to say, our brains naturally start slowing down at the cruelly young age of 30 (yes, 30). It used to be thought that this couldn’t be helped, but a barrage of new studies show that people of any age can train their brains to be faster and, in effect, younger. “Your brain is a learning machine,” says Michael Merzenich, PhD, a neuroscientist at the University of California, San Francisco. Given the right tools, we can train our brains to act like they did when we were younger. All that’s required is dedicated practice: exercises for the mind. " William Speed Weed from Reader's Digest

" I remember it like it was yesterday!" you say. But how well do you really remember it? How well do you remember yesterday? Here's a quick quiz:
What time did you have lunch yesterday? What exactly did you eat? What did you say? What did the people around you say? If you read the paper yesterday, name all the stories you read and summarize them briefly.

Don't remember yesterday as well as you thought? Don't worry, nobody does. Our memories are often thought of as recording devices, mechanically noting what has happened during the day and replaying these events like a tape. In truth, memory is a function of the brain, which is constantly in flux, organic, and does not behave like a machine. Your memory can be affected in many ways by many things, which can cause you to forget, to change memories around, to repress memories, and even to invent completely new ones!

 

Eg: Memory can be affected by a number of factors, some more sinister than others: it may simply be lack of sleep; fatigue due to over-work, lack of exercise, or poor diet; or stress-related. These are all issue about which we can do something constructive to help us. However, memory problems can also be the result of deeper-rooted issues such as brain disease, tumors, or the onset of a brain cell deteriorating disease such as Alzheimer’s. Sufferers that have any doubts at all should always seek medical advice with regards to continued memory loss

Forgetting names of people one rarely sees, such as a former neighbor

•Forgetting parts of an experience, such as parts of a vacation trip with a friend

•Occasionally misplacing an item, such as car keys or a cell phone

•Extreme mood changes related to a relevant or appropriate cause, such as recalling the death of a spouse

•Temporarily being unable to recall a specific fact while telling a story or a past event or experience

•Change and loss of interest in various age-related activities

The human brain contains more than 100 billion brain cells called nerve cells or neurons. All neurons have same basic structure. Many number of nerves cells together are called nerve. Nerve is a pale, tough and string like structure and acts as a living telephone wire.
A neuron is a long cell that has a thick central area containing the nucleus; it also has one long structure called an axon and one or more short, bushy structures called dendrites. Dendrites receive impulses from other neurons. These impulses propagate electrically along the cell membrane to the end of the axon. At the tip of the axon the signal is chemically transmitted to an adjacent neuron or muscle cell.

BRAIN CELL GROWTH AFFECTED BY STRESS
For years, neurobiologists clung to a fundamental truth: as animals and people reach adulthood, they lose brain cells and they never grow new ones. There were a couple of exceptions such as birds and rats, but the thought was that these were peculiarities of nature and not evidence of a general principle.

Now, in experiments that experts call amazing, that dogma has been overturned because scientists have found that monkeys are constantly making new brain cells in the hippocampus, an area of the brain used for forming long-term memories. Moreover, they report, the production of new cells is squelched when the animals are under extreme stress.

Experts say they fully expect that humans are no different and that they, too, make new brain cells in adult life. That raises the glimmer of a possibility of eventually treating degenerative disorders like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease and injuries such as those resulting from stroke or trauma — by prompting the brain to grow replacement cells.>>>Source

What is Alzheimer's Disease?

Most don't understand how great Cranial Electrical Stimulation is!!!

The external addition of microcurrent will increase the production of ATP, protein synthesis, oxygenation, ion exchange, absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste products, and neutralizes the oscillating polarity of deficient cells. Homeostasis is restored.By normalizing cell activity, inflammation is reduced while collagen producing cells are increased. Healthy cell metabolism creates a healthy, pain free internal environment.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) is non-invasive alternative therapy that involves passing very small electrical impulses (micro-currents) across the base of the skull. This is done by placing electrodes or clips on or near both ears. Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation alters the electrical activity of the brain and is being considered a safer alternative to drug treatments for conditions such as insomnia, depression, memory loss Alzheimer's or Dementia,drug addiction, headaches and even ADHD.

Its tiny “microcurrents” are thought to stimulate the areas of the brain responsible for neurotransmitter and hormone production. Clinical tests back this up. Increases in cerebrospinal fluid level beta-endorphins up to 219%, plasma beta-endorphins up to 98%, and cerebrospinal fluid serotonin up to 200% have been demonstrated in normal volunteers receiving just 20 minutes of CES treatment. In addition, many patients report a feeling of slight to moderate euphoria after use

 

How often have you asked yourself the question:
" Why can't I remember everything I read?"

The problem with poor memory is not confined to reading. It is more generalized in that we also have difficulty remembering: names of people dates and times telephone numbers codes, passwords
events and occasions business facts and figures jokes etc, etc.

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".

Robert O. Becker, M.D., reports that naturally occurring electric currents are measurable in the body, which send electrical signals through the Schwann and glial cell sheaths surrounding neurons to an area of injury. This process triggers the repair and regeneration process. he found that the human body is normally polarized positively along the central spinal axis and negatively peripherally.

Delivering tiny electrical currents to the brain could help
women with breast cancer head off side effects from chemotherapy.

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.

"After just five days of non-invasive brain stimulation and a bit of cognitive training, researchers at Oxford University were able to enhance people's high-level abilities, such as mental arithmetic and manual calculations. And remarkably, the effect lasts for months.

The discovery was made by scientists working at Oxford's Department of Experimental Psychology, and it could lead to entirely new education strategies. But more immediately, it could also help people with learning disabilities or neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. We contacted the lead researcher to learn more."

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.

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.

At present, there are over 125 research studies on CES in humans and 29 experimental animal studies. The overwhelming majority of the scientific research is extremely positive. No significant lasting side effects have been reported. Harvard University School of Public Health, Department of Health Policy and Management found: "The meta-analysis of anxiety showed CES to be significantly more effective than sham (P<.05)

Effects of Low-Frequency Cranial Electro stimulation on the Rest-Activity Rhythm and Salivary Cortisol in Alzheimer's Disease
Erik Scherder , Dirk Knol , Eus van Someren ,Jan-Berend Deijen ,Rob Binnekade,Fred Tilders ,Joseph Sergeant

Objective. In previous studies, cranial electro stimulation (CES) had positive effects on sleep in depressed patients and in patients with vascular dementia. The present study examined the effects of low-frequency CES on the rest-activity rhythm and cortisol levels of patients with probable Alzheimer's disease (AD). Method. It was hypothesised that a decreased level of cortisol would parallel a positive effect of low-frequency CES on nocturnal restlessness. Sixteen AD patients were randomly assigned to an experimental group (n = 8) or a control group (n = 8). The experimental group was treated with CES, whereas the control group received sham stimulation, for 30 minutes a day, during 6 weeks. The rest-activity rhythm was assessed by actigraphy. Cortisol was measured repeatedly in the saliva throughout the day by means of salivette tubes. Results. Low-frequency CES did not improve the rest-activity rhythm in AD patients. Moreover, both groups showed an increase instead of a decrease in the level of cortisol. Conclusions: These preliminary results suggest that low-frequency CES has no positive effect on the rest-activity rhythm in AD patients. An alternative research design with high-frequency CES in AD is discussed.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) for dementia
Michelle H Cameron1, Edmund Lonergan2, Helen Lee3
Nine trials were included in the review but only 3 trials could be included in the meta-analysis. Sufficient data to include the other trials in the meta-analysis could not be obtained. From this limited analysis it appears that TENS produced a statistically significant improvement directly after treatment in: delayed recall of 8 words in one trial, face recognition in two trials and motivation in one trial.

Mild Cognitive Impairment: TENS Reported Helped: Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) has been applied to patients with either Alzheimer's disease (AD) or incipient dementia, resulting in an enhancement in memory and verbal fluency. Moreover, affective behavior was shown to improve. In a study of non demented elderly with mild cognitive impairment living in a residential home, TENS resulted a mild improvement in self-efficacy and mood, while the placebo group showed a considerable reduction in self-efficacy and an increase in depression. Effects of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) on self-efficacy and mood in elderly with mild cognitive impairment. Luijpen MW, et al.

Trans cranial Direct Current Stimulation
in Stroke Recovery

A total of 54 patients with acute cerebral infarction were selected from the Department of Neurology, the Second People's Hospital of Xinxiang from December 2005 to December 2006. There were 31 males and 23 females, and their ages ranged from 56 to 80 years. All patients met the diagnostic criteria of the Fourth National Cerebrovascular Academic Meeting, were finally diagnosed by using CT examination, and provided the confirmed consent. Based on therapeutic demands, patients were divided into electric stimulation group and routine treatment group with 27 cases in each group. In addition, 21 healthy subjects, including 11 males and 10 females and aging 53–78 years, were selected as the control group. All the subjects in the control group did not have any histories of cerebrovascular diseases and severe body diseases.
Conclusion
Electric stimulation at cerebellar fastigial nucleus can decrease level of serum C-reactive protein in patients with acute cerebral infarction, and this may be one of the therapeutic mechanisms for curing acute cerebral infarction.

Childs & Crismon (1988) reported improvement in immediate and delayed memory recall in a report of 2 case studies with TBI.

Sending tiny electric pulses to a part of the brain controlling motor function helps ischemic stroke survivors regain partial use of a weakened hand, new Oregon Health & Science University research shows. More

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.

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is an acute medical condition that results from a significant impact to the human skull. Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) occurs when mTBI symptoms, such as dysphoria, anxiety, and chronic pain continue for an extended period. There is much debate over the causes of PCS with physical attributions (i.e., physiological/neurological changes) on one side of the continuum and purely psychological explanations on the other. McCrea (2008) argues that PCS reflects a psychological state best described as Undifferentiated Somatization Disorder*. Although his conclusions are not without debate, if true, this squarely places the treatment of PCS in the psychological realm. CES represents one obvious potential treatment as it has been shown to safely reduce several of the most common symptoms associated with mTBI/PCS, albeit with different populations (non-mTBI), and is available for a modest cost compared to medications.

Anxiety: Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation: Reported to Help During Dental Procedures: In a DB PC study of 33 dental patients, the active CES treatment group was significantly less anxious than the placebo group at the conclusion of various dental procedures. CES was used starting 5 minutes before the procedure and continued during the procedure. Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES): a safe and effective low cost means of anxiety control in a dental practice. Winick RL. Gen Dent 1999 Jan-Feb;47(1):50-5.

We all worry about Alzheimer's disease from time-to-time, especially if we've had the unfortunate experience of watching a loved one suffer from it late in life. Now new research has revealed that a key hallmark of the encroaching disease, the accumulation of an abnormal protein in the brain, can start in people as young as 20 years old - younger than scientists ever imagined.

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, stress-related problems account for 80-85% of all visits to medical offices. Research indicates that 80-85% of all diseases are caused by stress which plays a major role in aggravating up to 90% of all illnesses and some part in the development of every disease, from cancer to the common cold.
It has been estimated that 80% of the populace of the United States alone react to life adjustment problems with the "flight" or "fight" anxiety reaction. And that a similar percentage of our hospitals are filled with persons who have channeled anxiety released energies into their bodies resulting in psychogenic illnesses.

 

"Over 10,000 medical practitioners in the US alone made use of electro therapeutic modalities until publication of the 1910 Flexner report, which stated that there was no specific basis for electro medicine (at that time). Dr. Flexner's report was originally prepared by the AMA and sponsored by the Carnegie Endowment for the Advancement of Teaching. Since the Carnegie family was heavily invested in the young pharmaceutical industry it is no wonder their report declared allopathic medicine superior.>>> Source

 

Other possible applications of the CES are menstrual cramping, stiff neck, allergic reactions, headache, temporal lobe disorders, etc. The bio electrical approach may be useful to modulate neurotransmitters in the brain such that they may re balance the immune system and help with aspects of all depression and anxiety type symptoms. Patients who first use the cranial electrical stimulation (CES) device can often experience benefit in the first 30 minute session. Often a good marker of its benefits is that it will produce good relaxation and even improve sleep. For other individuals an appropriate trial may be concurrent use with amino acids or antidepressants, which require at least three weeks to reach their full effect, and sometimes as much as two months to reach the full benefit.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES): CES is "the application of low-level, pulsed electrical currents usually not exceeding 1 milliampere) applied to the head for medical and/or psychological purposes .... CES leaves the user alert while inducing a relaxed state." According to the authors, most of these devices are limited to about 11,000 times less power than the 60 watt light bulb.... "The significance of CES research for treating anxiety has been reconfirmed through meta-analysis conducted at the University of Tulsa...[and at] the Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public Health.... In addition to primary claims for anxiety, depression and insomnia...favorable results have also been reported for labor, epilepsy, glossalgia, hypertension, surgery, spinal cord injuries, chronic pain, arthritis, cerebral atherosclerosis, eczema, dental pain, asthma, ischemic heart disease, stroke, motion sickness, digestive disorders as well as various addictive disorders including cocaine, marijuana, heroin and alcohol abuse." Robert O. Becker, MD, author of The Body Electric

 

There is a synergistic relationship between nutrients and CES. Think of the brain as a car battery, some cells of which may not be fully functioning. To achieve that end one needs both water and the trickle charge--This is analogous to the brain, amino acids and the CES. The brain uses amino acids as the raw materials, the building blocks or precursors with which to build its neurotransmitters. It is necessary for these amino acids to be present in the bloodstream in adequate amounts for the maximum impact/benefit of CES to be realized. These precursors, if present will be taken up and synthesized into neurohormones much more effectively when CES is added. These neurotransmitter precursor amino acids can be taken orally as food supplements.

To experience an even more dramatic impact of CES, it should be done in conjunction with amino acid supplements

Rife machines and Multiwave oscillators are claimed to complement each other based on the principle that life forms absorb energy. A multiwave Oscillator uses this principle to strengthen cells within the body to resist disease while a Rife machine uses this principle to destroy microorganisms with an overdose of frequency energy.
