Unique Tools to Help Chronic Stress from Destroying Your Memory

May 22, 2019 • Fenny Peiffer


Chances are that if you’re reading this article, you’re familiar with the more significant impacts of stress, like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, gastrointestinal problems, Alzheimer’s, accelerated aging and even premature death.
But there’s another less-widely known group of low-grade symptoms that come from what are considered low-grade chronic stress and anxiety.

This is the kind that lurks just below your surface of awareness–the chronic worrying or uneasiness, the vague fears or preoccupations that may come and go without you even knowing and contributes to these symptoms:

  • An inability to focus and concentrate
  • Make clear decisions
  • Remember things
  • Have a sharp mental acuity
  • Insomnia
  • Attention deficit
  • Low energy
  • Chronic fatigue

If you’ve been experiencing any one of these low-grade symptoms, there’s a very high probability that chronic stress is at the root cause.

Chronic Stress is the New Way of Life

According to the American Psychological Association, over 50% of Americans are living with chronic stress. And, when you factor in the number of people living with low-grade stress operating silently in the background, that number is many, many more.

Whether you’re currently among the long term unemployed, have an upside down mortgage, are at a crossroads in your career, having relationship issues, or have this nagging resentment at your neighbor because he leaves the empty trash cans on the curb days after trash pick-up, stress has become your new standard of living and for many, the only way of life.

And it has become the new way of life because your brain has re-wired itself adopting stress as the new standard.

What Your Brain Does Under Chronic Stress

Cellular biologists have long understood the physiological, “fight or flight” response from sudden, short-term external threats like coming face to face with a shark, or stepping back from an oncoming car.

The brain’s built-in control and response system regulate the flow of stress hormones from the adrenal glands warning the body’s 50 trillion cells to “run for cover” in the face of this perceived threat and retreat back to normal once the threat has passed.

Less understood, however, was the biological impact of exposure to prolonged and persistent threats or “stresses”, like the new normal, day to day stresses mentioned above.

After 40 years of brain research however, we now know that the brain re-wires itself, forming new neurological pathways to accommodate this state of continuous chronic stress – something known as neuroplasticity –a state in which the brain spends more effort directing the cells of the body to protect themselves and less effort doing its primary functions of delivering oxygen and nutrition to the cells for “normal” functioning and starving them.

In the short term this chronic cellular “stress” produce all kinds of system imbalances which manifest themselves is an inability to focus, a lack of concentration, an inability to make clear decisions, declining memory, low energy, insomnia, etc…long term these symptoms, undiagnosed and untreated at the level of cause, become more serious diagnosable diseases.

Why Your Doctor Can’t Tell You What’s Wrong

Most troubling is that if and when you seek medical attention for these symptoms, your doctor, and conventional medicine as a whole, doesn’t “connect the dots” and look far enough below the surface to identify the root cause— which are the system imbalances caused by the cells under stress.
Instead, they assign a name (and a billing code) to the symptoms, then follow a ‘standard of care’ protocol to treat the symptom.

The good news for people living with these chronic, unresolved symptoms who have been everywhere and seen everyone, is the emergence of new technologies – robust, yet simple tools– now available to identify the root cause of these symptoms.

One of these technologies is a home-based evaluation process called The MAP, or The Matrix Assessment Profile.

With a small sample of urine and saliva The MAP’s fluid analyzer—originally developed by a team of bio-engineers at NASA—will peek into your biochemistry and spot the imbalances contributing to these symptoms, right at the root cause, which is something that conventional lab work just doesn’t do.

While The MAP is not a ‘test’ used to diagnose disease, it does identify biochemical ‘markers’, or imbalances that could lead to less than optimal health in the future. And, you’re able to get real answers to chronic health care concerns that your doctor might not have been able to provide.

With The MAP evaluation process – you can narrow in on and determine what’s really wrong and finally relieve chronic stress, anxiety, low energy, failing memory so you can begin to focus, concentrate and remember like you used to.

Get the full story from Optimal Wellness Labs on how this safe and accurate unique home-based biological evaluation (originally developed by NASA engineers) has been administered to thousands of chronic symptom sufferers worldwide to identify the SOURCE of unresolved cognitive and physiological symptoms.

Dr. Richard DiCenso has over 30 years treating patients with chronic and acute, unsolvable symptoms and the early detection of disease. He is the author of “Beyond Medicine, Exploring a New Way of Thinking”, and the developer of solutions to help symptom sufferers identify what’s wrong with their bodies.
