Denver Acupuncture Memory Loss Treatment Works Best
There are times when all of us struggle with memory and concentration. In our acupuncture practice, we treat a broad spectrum of people with these issues. Some examples include 90 year old’s wanting to improve their bridge game, college students looking for better grades, women going through menopause feeling like they are losing their minds, and young parents who can’t remember where they put their car keys. There are many reasons why memory and concentration decline. Those reasons will vary. No matter what the reason, the Denver Acupuncture memory loss treatment can help restore your memory and concentration.
Denver Acupuncture Memory Loss Treatment and the Older Patient
For an older patient, like our 90 year old bridge player, memory and concentration decline due to reduced blood flow to the brain, declining Kidney function, and reduced marrow production. In Chinese medicine, the Kidneys are responsible for the aging process. The stronger your Kidneys, the slower you will age. Also, the brain is thought to contain marrow. Reduced marrow production will affect brain function. These three functions naturally decline with age, even in healthy people. For the senior, acupuncture serves to bolster, nourish and replenish. Treatment will increase blood flow to the brain, boost Kidney function, and increase marrow production.
Denver Acupuncture Memory Loss Treatment and the College Student
For the college student (or anyone young facing memory and concentration issues), the situation will be quite different. A student appoaching finals week might have poor concentration due to stress, exhaustion and fear. While we can’t change the situation, we can affect how the student reacts to the situation. Acupuncture will focus on helping them naturally manage the stressful situation, replenish their energy by strengthening their metabolism, and calming their fear by nourishing their Kidneys. Yes, that’s right. Kidneys again! In Chinese medicine, fear is rooted in Kidney function. This type of approach will help the student be more calm, more focused, have better recall and concentration, and have less fear as they take their exams.
Denver Acupuncture Memory Loss Treatment and Menopause
Women going through menopause have trouble with memory and concentration due to dramatic hormone changes in the body. It is very common for women going through menopause to feel they are losing their memory. They also often feel unable to concentrate for any length of time. Much of this is caused by hormone changes. Your body and mind have been used to functioning in a certain chemical environment over the past 35 years. All of a sudden that environment is completely changed. Your brain is rightly confused and disoriented.
Acupuncture helps you adjust to the new hormone levels and claim them as your own. In Chinese medicine we are not big advocates for hormone replacement therapy as a way to avoid the unpleasant side effects of menopause. We would much rather help you adjust to the new hormone levels and move forward with your life naturally. Once you have adjusted to these new levels, the side effects generally resolve themselves. This treatment for memory and concentration will also help resolve the other common symptoms of menopause like hot flashes, night sweats and insomnia.
Denver Acupuncture Memory Loss Treatment and Moms
Mom’s with young children often have memory and concentration challenges. It is due to a combination of blood deficiency and exhaustion. Why blood deficiency? Women loose a great deal of blood during child birth and it takes time to replenish. Also, breast milk is considered like blood in Chinese medicine, so a woman breast feeding is using more blood. Blood is needed for brain function and a lack of sufficient blood can impact memory and concentration.
Every mom also knows that having young children means not getting enough sleep. And we know that lack of sleep directly affects memory and concentration. So the strategy here is first to help nourish blood, and second, to boost metabolism to generate more energy from the food you eat. Acupuncture can not provide you with more sleep, but it can maximize the energy you gain from the sleep you get and from the food you eat. Efficient metabolism also allows you to lose weight, as your body turns food into energy and not fat. More blood and energy will help improve memory and concentration.
There are many more situations that result in poor memory and concentration. The Denver Acupuncture memory loss treatment handles them in a case by case fashion, providing the support each person needs to overcome the obstacles causing their problems. Acupuncture is a custom made medicine, individualized and specific for the person and their unique situation.
