Stops Memory Loss in its Tracks and Reverses Dementia

Doctors in Britain have found a cure for Alzheimers that can stop the spread of Dementia and partially reverse it. The technology is actually pretty simple. The doctors discovered the break through when pointing infra-red light on mice in a maze cage each day for a few minutes. This few miutes of time under the low level infra-red light improved the mices perfomance in the maze cage. The experiment done was a controlled scientific experiment with verifiable results.

Alzheimers Helmet

The new experiment will now be with people. The helmet is safe and does not require then use of drugs. What the  infra-red light will do is assist in telling old cells to go ahead and try to repair yourselves. Old people generally see there cells grow old and die and with it their memory. This new technology helps to encourage cells that are not in the business any longer of regenerating to go ahead and start regrowing new cells again.

The plight of people with Alzheimers and Dimentia related diseases could quickly become an easy curable and preventable ailment and will bring youth back to many lives. The potential is there to see elderly people leaving in droves from Assisted Living facilities and nursing homes throughout the world. Of course, this technology is just beginning to be tested with humans but the testing results so far show a remarkable likelyhood that this new device will indeed cure the elderly disease.

Memory exercises for the elderly

Great memory exercise to help regain memory and keep it longer


Here is a very useful memory technique. If you feel as though your memory is going you can draw the memory back out of you. Scientists now agree, use it or lose it! So get started, here is a really good technique for starters:

Mnemonic Techniques

Memory exercises and techniques involving “peg words” and other mnemonic devices work well if you master them. They really do! Scores of books have been written on the subject. But do you want to study and master a mnemonic technique? Honestly, most of us don’t want to take the time and effort to do so. The good news is that not all memory techniques are that complicated or time-consuming.

One memory technique you can learn and use right now starts with a walk around the house. Pick ten locations or permanent objects in your home or office. Memorize these in some logical order (this is the hardest part). Now when you want to remember a list of things, associate each item on the list with with one of your ten locations or objects. Do this with mental imagery and even sounds, always in a ridiculous way. When you need to consult your list, you’ll simply walk around your home in your mind, and you will “see” the items on the list.

Make the images very vivid and this technique rarely fails. It was used two thousand years ago by Roman orators who would “place” parts of their speech in locations along a garden path, then mentally walk the garden “picking up” the topics as they gave the speech. I use this one a lot, when I can remember to, and it always works.
