Memory problems - don't put off treatment until it's too late

"There is a lot of talk out there in the media about memory problems, dementia and Alzheimers.  Unfortunately once you develop Alzheimers disease it is not reversible.  Before we ever get to that point and to try and prevent it altogether, here are some tips to help your memory.  

1.  Get your thyroid and adrenals checked.  Both of of these endocrine organs are vital in the proper function of our memories.  I have heard several patients tell me how bad their memory has been then we find out they are hypothyroid and have low adrenal function too.   

2.  Get some good sleep.  Sleep is vitally important for memory as well as all healing in the body.  If cortisol (an adrenal hormone) is high at night it will affect sleep and therefore will affect memory.  

3.  There are many different herbs and supplements for memory and they work differently and with different effectiveness. 

Just working on the first 2 things will be a great start!!"
