Dementia is a general term used by the medical community to diagnose cognitive decline that is serious enough to interfere with a persons daily life.
Dementia is often incorrectly assumed to be a given part of advanced age, this widespread belief is incorrect serious cognitive decline is not associated with aging.
Dementia is caused by damage to different brain regions. As this damage occurs areas of the brain that are supposed to communicate are unable to do so. At Cognitive FX, our advanced fNCI technology allows use to analyze over sixty different brain regions. This scan reveals what areas have gone into decline and allows use to customize our therapy for each individual.
While most changes to the brain associated with dementia are permanent and decline over time, treatment and medication have been shown to slow this decline.
By slowing the cognitive decline, the patient is able to function normally for a longer period of time. Some dementia conditions may improve if they are a result of the following:
- Thyroid Problem
- Vitamin Deficiencies
- Medication Side Effects
