The cerebral cortex of the brain controls memory function. Arteriosclerosis in the arteries leading to the brain, along with inorganic mineral deposits in the brain cells themselves, result in ischemia (cell starvation from lack of oxygen and nutrients). This interferes with the thinking processes and produces what is usually recognized as senile behaviour.

Recommended Action

Drink large amounts of clean water to leach out the inorganic deposits. Ensure that the brain receives proper nourishment to rebuild the deteriorating cells. Maintain and promote good circulation with an exercise and stretching program.
