Dementia is diagnosed as a noticeable loss of mental functioning caused any number of brain diseases. For years the medical profession thought there was little hope, now neuroscientists and researchers have never been more optimistic about their ability to help people with the disease. Refocusing their attention on health rather than disease is a big factor in this renewed optimism.
The brain has so many unknowns but with the aid of MRI equipment neuroscientists have realized our brains are remarkably resilient. They have identified a condition of healing referred to as plasticity that is responsible for restoring brain function. This is a factor in how stroke victims recover and regain the ability to talk and move again. Now we know that the brain heals best when provided with the building blocks of high quality nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Although neither revelation is news, our part in mitigating the risk of developing chronic brain disease is.
It’s now clear how important eating a brain-healthy diet is for the brain. Ingesting adequate essential nutrients, getting proper sleep and rest, and engaging in stimulating social, cognitive, and physical activities reduces the risk of dementia. Although some people fall in a higher risk category than others because of genes, history of concussions, and high blood pressure, it has been proven that everyone must be hands-on by subscribing to a brain-healthy lifestyle.
If you are reading this website then it is highly likely that you, or someone you know is suffering from“concerning” symptoms or may have already been diagnosed with dementia. Remember: It’s never too late to improve your health. Taking care of yourself before the onset of disease, or as early as possible, is the first step to maintaining a high quality of life.
“If I live long enough, I will get it.”
Many assume forgetfulness and lack of mental clarity are normal with aging. They are not.
“If dementia runs in the family, I’ll eventually get it no matter what I do.”
While the presence of the genetic risk factor, ApoE4, associated with Alzheimer’s might raise the risk, other genes may be present that lower the risk. New research is showing promise that you might outsmart genetic factors diminishing the likelihood of future cognitive impairment.
“I don’t need to worry about dementia, no one in my family has it.”
We are all at risk of developing dementia. Lifestyle, history of concussions, genetics, high blood pressure, and other health problems affect whether or not we do.
How does one reduce the risk of developing this debilitating brain disease? Becoming proactive and taking preemptive measures to improve your brain health is a first step. It is important to learn how to manage symptoms to improve your quality of life and maintain your current lifestyle for as long as possible.
