trouble thinking in a light pink box with the caption: Are you forgetting things? Memory loss does not have to be a normal part of aging. Improve your brain health with our guide on the 8 memory-inhibitors to avoid and the three steps you can take today to improve your brain health.
If you find yourself losing the car keys, mixing up your children’s names or starting something and forgetting what you were about to do, you might be worried about your brain health.
The thing is, “forgetfulness” as we age seems so common that it receives cute names like “having a senior moment.”
There are reasons why so many people forget things as they age, but what’s important to know is that YOU don’t have to lose your memory or brain health as you age.
In this article, we’ll cover the eight key reasons memory starts to fail as people age and what YOU can do to keep your brain in tip-top shape.
There are eight key reasons that people experience memory loss with age:
The good news is, if you look at the list of these eight memory-inhibitors, none of them are really due to aging…instead, they are all due to lifestyle choices.
So how can you make a change to improve your memory AND your overall well-being?
1. Improve your diet. Following a whole-foods Body Ecology diet is one of the most important steps you can take to improving your memory and overall health. The Body Ecology system of health and healing is more than a diet. It is a system of nutrition that helps correct digestive health, cleanse your body of toxins, boost your immunity and create energy.
Most people following Body Ecology report that they are feeling better, sleeping better and that they have the energy to take on life’s challenges. Healing your gut is one of the most effective ways to heal your brain.
In fact, this step is so important that it may be all you need to combat each of the items in the list of eight memory-inhibitors above. From improving your digestive health to better assimilation of vitamins and minerals to improving your mood and thyroid health, good nutrition is key when it comes to your health.
2. Consume fermented foods and drinks. Fermented foods and drinks, like cultured vegetables and probiotic liquids are cornerstones of the Body Ecology Way of Life. These forgotten foods are the greatest secret our ancestors, from almost every culture worldwide, used to stay healthy and strong.
Adding ½ cup of cultured vegetables or 3 oz. of a probiotic liquid, like Passion Fruit Biotic, to your daily meals is a great way to boost your health, immunity, energy, beauty and memory.
In today’s modern world, with pesticides and toxins in our food, water and the environment, it’s important to detoxify. Most people don’t know how and when to detoxify...and after thousands of requests for training, Body Ecology founder Donna Gates is has created a convenient, affordable detoxification training that you can attend online!
Now you can join Donna Gates and her team of medical and natural health experts for Body Ecology’s Detoxification Training.
3. Detoxify. We can’t emphasize enough the importance of detoxification. In fact, it is our theme for the month because spring is the ideal time to detoxify. While you can change many of your habits from the list above, like getting more sleep, eating a Body Ecology diet and reducing your exposure to toxins, there will still be some level of toxins we are all exposed too.
Pollution, cigarette smoke and toxins in the workplace (carpets, fabrics, heating and cooling systems, etc.) are all largely unavoidable. But you don’t need to live in a bubble to protect yourself! Instead, you can take the time to detoxify regularly.
Most people do not know how to detoxify, including the steps to take, the right detox diet to follow and how to tell the difference between illness and detox symptoms. For this reason, Body Ecology founder Donna Gates is offering her first-ever online training event: Body Ecology’s Detoxification Training. In this exclusive training event, Donna Gates will be joined by her team of top medical and natural health experts to teach you the secrets of detoxification so you can look and feel your best at any age.
Memory loss does not have to be a part of your experience. Just a few steps and you can change the course of your brain health – and your overall health – no matter what your age!
