We all have forgetful moments but there is a difference between harmless lapses and memory lapses that indicate dementia.
Memory Loss: When to Worry
- changes in your thinking or memory skills are noticed by your family and friends
- a slight decline in cognitive abilities increase the risk of Alzheimer`s disease
- changes that are affecting your ability to function properly could be dementia
- if you have difficulties finding the right word or you keep forgetting words and repeat stories during a conversation
- difficulty making choices
- exhibiting poor judgment or inappropriate social behaviors
- changes in personality
- loss of interest in favorite activities
- inability to recognize faces or familiar objects
- denying a memory problem exists
- getting angry when others bring it up
- leaving the stove on
- difficulty performing daily tasks
- asking the same question over and over
Scary fact: 5 million Americans have Alzheimer`s disease means that someone in the U.S develops Alzheimer`s every 66 seconds.

If Your Memory Is Slipping, Switch to a Ketogenic Diet NOW
- high-fat, moderate-protein and low-net-carb ketogenic diet protects brain health
- based on restriction of all but non-starchy vegetable carbs
- a diet that helps convert from carb-burning mode to fat-burning mode
- it stimulates the body to produce ketones.
British Journal of Nutrition:
“Unlike most other dietary fats that are high in long-chain fatty acids, coconut oilcomprises medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA). MCFA are unique in that they are easily absorbed and metabolised [sic] by the liver, and can be converted to ketones. Ketone bodies are an important alternative energy source in the brain, and may be beneficial to people developing or already with memory impairment, as in Alzheimer‘s disease(AD).”
