Mind & Memory

Our mind and memory are two of the great wonders of humanity, making us who we are. The ability to think, to have intelligence and to create cherished memories are some of our greatest assets as humans, yet many people neglect taking care of them before it’s too late.

There are many warning signs that can flag up potential problems with our mind and memory, like inexplicable sudden forgetfulness and other often missed neurological problems. While forgetfulness may be one of the first signs of normal ageing, you don’t have to accept the fact that declining brain function “happens to all of us” as we grow older. A bit of forgetfulness as you age is normal, however in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and the onset of dementia, this decline will be much more pronounced. For example, it’s common in normal ageing to have to pause to remember directions or to forget words occasionally, but it’s not normal to become lost in familiar places or to forget the names of close family members.

The normal signs of ageing set aside, protecting your mind and memory also involves being aware of other risk factors like how to spot neurological problems and how sleeping problems can affect how your brain and nervous system functions. There are in fact easy ways in which you can help preserve your mind as you progress into old age and we shall inform of all the natural tips and tricks you can add to your life today. These include the diet that can help keep your memory sharp or the worrying side effects of some antidepressants.

The Daily Health offers the latest research breakthroughs on how to keep your mind clear and healthy well into your old age by avoiding certain drugs and using brain-protecting alternatives remedies.
