The brain is the most neglected organ when it comes to our health. You only have to look at how we so readily dismiss sleep as being important, or the significant impact that alcohol, marijuana and other drugs have on the brain. For some, the importance of the brain comes to their attention when they begin to experience memory issues or foggy brain, or worse…..dementia.
Forgetting someone’s name or where you left your car keys does not necessarily mean you are getting dementia.
However, progressive memory problems and a decline in cognitive skills may be warning signs of a more serious problem, such as Alzheimer’s disease, which is the most well-known and prevalent form of dementia.
Forgetfulness and memory loss are not only seen in the elderly. Children, young adults, and those in mid-life may also experience memory issues. Early intervention and lifestyle changes may have a significant impact on memory and may reduce ones risk of developing dementia.
A number of factors may contribute to memory problems, including:
Family history of Alzheimer’s disease/dementia
Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Obesity & Poor Diet
Exposure to toxins
Diabetes or prediabetes
Hypertension or prehypertension
At Neuroperformance, we use a Multi modal approach that includes Qeeg Brain Scans as part of a comprehensive evaluation that may also include lab testing and assessing the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual factors that may contribute to memory problems. Based on all of this information, we can identify the root causes of memory problems and develop a personalized treatment plan to improve memory and cognitive abilities.
