The brain is a very fascinated organ. Although a very complex system, the brain is involved in functions of movement, sensation, memory, emotions, and hormonal balance. In order to maintain quality of life, it is important to optimize your brain health to prevent conditions such as Dementia and Stroke. We can help lower your risk.
When there is inadequate blood flow to our brain, we can have symptoms of brain dysfunction. This includes both sensational changes and/or movement issues. These symptoms can be temporary, which can be warning signs of something more major, or longer lasting, which are concerning for a stroke.
If you are experiencing stroke like symptoms, please seek emergent medical attention.
Conditions leading to decreased blood flow to our brain include blood vessel atherosclerotic disease, heart rhythm problems, or conditions increasing the risk for blood to clot or thicken.
Factors associated with increased risk of stroke include high blood pressure, smoking, heart conditions (abnormal rhythms, carotid disease, and heart attack), diabetes, depression, stress, poor diet, and abnormal cholesterol.

Memory impairment can decrease your quality of life.
Dementia is defined by decreased memory associated with thinking and judgment. This impairment can affect both short and long term memory. There is an association with personality change which can interfere with work, activities and relationships.
There are many causes of this condition and not all forms of memory impairment originate the same way. We are here to help you navigate this concern with a goal to help improve symptoms and delay the progression of disease.
There is good evidence that improvement in blood pressure control can reduce the incidence of dementia. Optimal lifestyle changes help decrease the risk as well. This includes high level exercise, optimized dietary choices and eating habits, appropriate management of chronic conditions and in some cases vitamin/herbal supplementations.
There are medications available to prevent the progression of dementia.
