Why do I keep forgetting?

So im only 18 and going to college to become a pharmacist. Remembering things is crucial in this field. Can someone tell me how I can improve my memory? I'm tired of being a teen with Alzheimer's

    Ensure adequate sleep, and exercise moderately. Take at least 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, or the recommended dose of a high quality of fish oil daily, like Carlsons, or Melrose; (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or its FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it! Females may benefit by balancing the DHA, & EPA versions of Omega 3 in fish, or krill* oil with ALA flaxseed oil Omega 3, or at least one heaped tablespoonful of ground flaxseed, daily. Vegetarians: Google: "Omega 3; algae; supplies" and use with flaxseed. Vitamin and health food stores are good sources, because they specialise in this area, and have a high turnover, so their products are less likely to be old.

PUZZLES, ETC. www.brainbashers.com/index.php & http://www.everydayhealth.com/longevity/mental-fit... & www.onlinebraingamesblog.com I am informed that the recent Nintendo games console has some for improving memory, so you may wish to ask your retailer about Dr Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo DS. Also see http://www.bestfreetraining.net/?p=252 and www.luminosity.com have a free 3 week trial. Practice a mindfulness meditation method, daily, such as http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/mindbody/a/Meditat... or www.wikihow.com/Meditate

    Google: "nootropics" & "citicoline" http://www.raysahelian.com/citicoline.html 500mg citicoline, daily. "When choline and piracetam are taken together there is a synergistic effect that causes a greater improvement in memory than the sum of each when taken alone (Bartus, 1981)." These supplements are IQ and CNS stimulant with very few side effects. However, keep in mind that even natural supplements and herbs can interact with various medications. Before adding these to you daily regimen, check with a pharmacist to be sure there will be no interactions with anything you may already be taking. http://www.ceri.com/noot.htm Author: Ward Dean, MD. The supplements, DHEA & Phosphatidyl Serine are worth trying. See http://www.naturalnews.com/016646_Phosphatidylseri... A study has shown ginkgo biloba to be ineffective. See http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-lifestyle-guide/supp... ~~~ Hypnosis is merely a heightened state of suggestibility, in which you are better able to communicate with your subconscious mind. 85% of people are suggestible to some degree; 15% - 20% highly so, and 15% - 20% aren't much at all, so you could either preferably seek professional hypnotherapy, or, if not an option, more along such lines is at http://your-mental-health.weebly.com/g.html where this came from. Enter "krill oil" and "memory" in the searchbar at www.mercola.com **. Lecithin* (phosphatidyl choline). A phospholipid found mostly in high-fat foods. It is said to have the ability to improve memory and brain processes. Lecithin is necessary for normal brain development. Capsules are available, but many people prefer the soft lecithin granules. These are a nice addition to fruit juice smoothies, adding a thicker texture. Lecithin is oil-based, and it gets rancid easily. It should be refrigerated (from health food stores).

    Source(s): Also, some options: eat a daily ounce/30gm of almonds, or walnuts** (preferably not American, unless certified not irradiated! **) whole grain cereal, cauliflower, broccoli, sprouts, spinach, plums, berries, (particularly blueberries, red apples [Australia: avoid waxed ones, or peel them.

    I am the same exact way! I started working in Accounting, and too much papers, and too much things around me I get completely lost and forget what I'm doing or supposed to. You need to find something that relaxes you, take some time off and just relax. It helps me forget everything because my brain had no more room to process anything else.

    Just take it easy, and never rush yourself.

    Try to always keep a note book handy so you can write it down and always refer to when you forget.
