There are a lot of reasons why someone may feel like their memory is fading. It could be the cholesterol meds, it could be a thyroid condition or it could be too much sugar (diabetes type 3) and diet soda (a known neurotoxin). However, the most common reason I have come across in the last few months is the cell phone.
When people come to me with memory issues and the traditional means don’t change anything, I ask them where their cell phone is at night. Most people then inform me that it is either under their pillow or on their night stand because it is their alarm.
More times than not, once we discuss the danger of having the cell phone in the bedroom–especially next to their head–they move it away from their head at night and their memory slowly starts to improve.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to keep cell phones out of the bedroom. It is constantly sending out signals all night long retrieving email, media and updating. It is constantly searching for a signal and radiating while you sleep.
If you or a loved one are sleeping with the cell phone next to your head or in your bedroom I would strongly encourage you to remove it. The dangers that cell phones possess are only slightly well known so it is extremely important to be proactive and err on the side of caution where new technology is concerned.
Yours in health,
