Can your brain and mind can be strengthened at any age—even if injury, stroke or Alzheimer’s is present? “Yes!” says brain and memory expert Vicki Mizel, creator of the revolutionary Brain Sprouts memory system that stimulates neuro-branch growth in the brain, thus improving memory. You’ll never worry again about losing information that’s important, remembering key points for a speech or meeting, or losing your memory with age. Vicki’s entertaining presentation gives you a memory system in one hour that you’ll use for the rest of your life. Want to banish your fear of Alzheimer’s, even if you’ve seen a family member suffer? “One out of four people gets dementia or dies after retirement,” says Vicki, “but you can be free from worry about age-related decline when you spend just a few minutes a day regenerating your brain.”
You and your group will learn simple, fun exercises that strengthen your brain in just 10-15 minutes a day, revealing remarkable skills you didn’t know you had. “You’ll improve memory, imagination, test-taking ability, creativity and happiness levels,” says Vicki, “and when that happens it can lead to better career choices, greater confidence, and overall satisfaction with your life.”
You’ll learn how to:
- Increase memory, comprehension and retention
- Strengthen visual and creative imagination
- Remember names instantly
- Think faster
- Raise test scores
- Speak without notes
- End fear of Alzheimer’s, age decline and memory loss
- Sharpen analytical skills and test-taking techniques
- Develop the ‘mind’s eye’
- Improve critical thinking
- Remember lines (for actors)
- Take control of your mental and physical health
“No one has to be limited by age or infirmity,” says Vicki, a consultant in health care and education who’s been giving speeches and seminars, nationally and internationally, for over 20 years. She’s worked with IBM, ROLM, Hewlett Packard, Prudential, Chase Manhattan, and Apple Bank, improving employee motivation and work quality, corporate goals, customer service, and performance skills. “When there are fewer mistakes, it improves the bottom line and employee morale,” she explains.
And if you or a loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s, Vicki’s talk can change your life. “A dementia or Alzheimer’s person who asks the same question sixty times an hour will stop asking that question within five minutes of practicing multi-sensory modalities and improvisation,” says Vicki.
Vicki speaks from first-hand experience, having used her breakthrough system to speed her own recovery. “I was brain-injured from a severe truck/car accident and recovered,” she says. She used her techniques again following an illness from chemical toxicity. “I’ve witnessed memory enhancements in my students, patients, and now my own brain,” she adds. “I even developed new skills I didn’t know I had prior to using these memory methods. Now, I want everyone to know their God-given talents and develop their skills so they can thrive and flourish in their lives.”
Your audience leaves Vicki Mizel’s energetic talk confident that memory and mind strength can improve over time, free of worry about Alzheimer’s or decline, and with simple techniques that sharpen the mind and help them renew their passion and purpose in life.

How to Remember Names (Even if you’ve had a few drinks)
Every day, every aspect of our lives requires us to use our memory. We’re constantly memorizing or calling on information we have memorized, but we all know from experience that we are not always successful in recalling the information we need when we need it. The Brain Sprouts Memory system solves that problem.
In this fun, interactive talk, Vicki Mizel shows how to make associations and turn intangible items and information into visual pictures. You’ll learn fun techniques like how to remember names by recalling an outstanding characteristic on the person’s face and associating it with a picture that reminds you of the name. The audience leaves Vicki’s presentation knowing how to remember names, faces and facts and change short-term memory into long-term recall.

This system is easy to use and you can practice it on whatever matters to you.

Books by Vicki Mizel
Forty-seven million adults presently suffer from Alzheimer’s. This number will only increase. Employ the methods shared in this important book to keep yourself mentally well and to help loved ones who may suffer memory loss. In 400 BC, Aristotle taught memory improvement by using “visual, sensory, auditory, tactile modes, with an emotional component.” Vicki Mizel uses the same approach, updated for our contemporary world. When no one believed the brain could regenerate, she was improving the brain function of Alzheimer’s patients, successfully helping them recall information.
Vicki’s pioneering work, starting in 1984, has now been verified by the medical profession. The brain can regenerate! You can start now employing memory methods to exercise and assist brain function. Daily practice of only five to ten minutes can help prevent memory loss from worsening. Eventually, if 60 percent of our baby boomers are in nursing homes, debilitated because of Alzheimer’s, it could bankrupt our economy, disrupt families, and ruin lives that might have remained active into old, old age. Vicki Mizel’s book offers her proven memory methods to you now.
