Diet & Prevention
Poor memory is related to blood deficiency; not sleeping well; or not sleeping enough for a long period of time. According to TCM’s circadian clock, being in deep sleep from 11pm to 7am is crucial for your brain and organs to recuperate. Go to bed by 11 pm at the latest and sleep soundly through the night so that all systems can recover from the day’s activities. Do Qigong, Yoga, Tai Chi or walk in the morning.
Avoid consuming caffeinated products after 11am. Completely avoiding caffeine is best. Do not eat late at night. Allow 3 hours after dinner before going to bed. Smoking cigarettes or tobacco products close to bedtime can make it hard to fall asleep. Alcohol can make you fall asleep initially, but may disrupt your sleep later in the night.
Consume more of these foods: pumpkin, banana, avocado, egg, beet, pumpkin seed, fish, long yellow daylily, nuts, peanuts or walnuts.
