Not all of us will have to have their head injured to end up with memory loss. Sadly, memory loss will happen, sooner or later, to many of us. Numerous factors affect our memory loss, no matter if it’s the loss of short-term memory or occasional forgetfulness.
Even if the list of possible causes for depression is a lot longer, some factors cause memory loss more often than others.
Drinking too much alcohol will make you experience memory difficulties, and alcoholism is defined as a leading cause for memory loss.
As treatment centers for alcoholism, addictions, or mental health issues, the treatment should be comprehensive, addressing all problems. For example, at Holistic Sanctuary, the cure for alcoholism aims to heal the mind, body, and soul of the patient. Innovative protocols, sacred plant medicine, and new therapies are also utilized for a comprehensive approach to the disease. The primary purpose is to take the brain to the pre-addicted state when memory and cognitive functions were functioning correctly.
Many prescription and over-the-counter medications may affect and even cause memory loss. Antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication, sleeping pills, and pain medication can alter the brain and memory functions.
At Holistic Sanctuary, the patient will go through a natural detox, so that all chemical and toxic substances and medication residues are eliminated from the body. Coffee enemas, liver detox, mitochondria repair protocol, and parasite/candida cleanse is used to clean the patient’s body. No medications are used for treatment, and all methods and substances are natural for complete recovery after depression, PTSD, addiction of all kinds.
Moreover, new and alternative therapies are used for managing pain at The Holistic Sanctuary. HBOT therapy, massage, acupuncture, proprietary chakra rebalancing will help patients with pain, reducing, and even eliminating it.
Both quantity and quality of sleep will matter for memory functioning. Waking up frequently throughout the night or not getting enough sleep will affect the capacity of storing and recalling information.
The professionals at Holistic Sanctuary know about the role of sleep for recovery and the brain’s functioning, including memory. Ozone therapy, HBOT therapy, meditation, breathing exercises, kundalini yoga, and therapeutic massages are used, reducing the level of stress, relaxing, and helping the patients get better sleep.
Physical activities are suitable for the body and mind. When people engage in physical activities, they get happier (it’s the hormones that come into play) and more energetic, but they also sleep better at night. Patients have daily access to the gym and spa, which relax and improve the quality of sleep.
Sleeping in a beautiful, comfortable bed with organic linens will also help the clients rest throughout the night. That’s another thing that patients at Holistic Sanctuary will benefit from.
When people are depressed, it’s challenging for them to focus and pay attention. Stress and anxiety consume many of the brain’s resources, so it’s essential to keep them under control. When the patient is continuously tensed, distracted, or overstimulated, the memory functioning will suffer. At Holistic Sanctuary, patients are helped to identify the deep causes of their stress, emotional trauma. Later on, they also learn healthy and new ways to cope with life’s challenges. Sacred plant medicine, but also individual counseling sessions are used for that purpose, pushing the patient to heal from PTSD, depression, anxiety, or other mental health conditions.
Healthy dieting isn’t important only for the heart, but also for the mind. Dieting should include high-quality proteins and fats, with B1 and B12 deficiency as contributing factors for memory loss.
Unlike other treatment centers, the Holistic Sanctuary helps the patients start raw, plant-based, vegan, organic, and non-GMO dieting. Also, the patients benefit from daily NAD IV vitamin drips that will give the body the vitamins and amino acids it needs for proper functioning.
A healthy diet will give the body the proper amount of nutrients, sustaining the brain’s capacity, and improving memory.
Smoking will affect the brain as it reduces the amount of oxygen getting to the brain. Several studies revealed that smokers would have difficulties to associate faces to names, as opposed to non-smokers. It’s the chemicals in the smoke that affect the brain.
Ozone therapy and HBOT therapy will give the patients 100% pure oxygen at high pressure, which will help with restoring neural pathways affects by smoking and other drugs.
A head injury may also affect the brain, causing short and even long term memory loss. The memory may improve in time, but treatment should be consistent and complex.
When we look at memory loss and depression, we will notice that how we deal with stress will affect both. The connection between depression, anxiety, and physical fatigue goes round and round. When people feel very stressed, they will almost always end up feeling depressed. As you’re fighting with chronic stress, the body will produce high amounts of stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline), but they will affect the other bodily functions. A high level of cortisol will alter the primary neurotransmitters, changing the mood, sleep, and, eventually, the memory.
Poor balance of neurotransmitters adrenaline and dopamine is a crucial aspect of memory loss and depression. They are fundamental for focus, power of concentration, affecting the memory functions.
Depression doesn’t go away on its own, and neither makes memory difficulties. Physical exercise, healthy dieting, or positive thinking may help you for a while, but they’re not going to bring the long-lasting change you need.
At Holistic Sanctuary, patients are advised by a team of professionals from many areas of expertise.
