Alzheimer’s & Dementia

November 2017

We want to strive to ensure the best quality of life as well as search for a cure. 

It can effect anyone at any age, however, as of now it effects mostly are those who are 60 years of age or older. Alzheimer’s is consequently a more progressive type of Dementia. This disease progressively destroys important mental functions especially the memory. Dementia can be caused by brain disease or injury. Some scholars believe genetics, environment, and behavior have a role in a person developing brain disease that can lead to Alzheimer’s or Dementia. We live in a time where the understanding of the human body and brain is ever developing. Scientists find new information about functionality, purpose, and structure of the brain. With this, new perspectives on all information we have and find are changing. To illustrate, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Studies have shown that patients with neurofeedback treatment improve in learning and memory cognitive functions. In addition, neurofeedback may also slow down the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s. Neurofeedback is an especially promising treatment for anyone suffering from these conditions as there are several studies that have been completed to date. Research shows that the brain is not fixed at a certain age but remains changeable over time. This is called neuroplasticity and it is changing the way scientists approach their study of the brain. The brain maintains this capability of learning and growing at any age.  A brain that continues to learn and grow will have stronger connections and be much healthier than a brain that is stagnant and not functioning optimally. Neurofeedback gives the individual whole brain intelligence as they train to control their own brain activity and capable to activate their brain at their own choosing. Science's develops new strategies constantly, which gives us hope for a cure.  When that day comes we all can and will rejoice. Until then, for those who are suffering, we can band together to ensure a better quality of life. The more we understand, the better we can react to how this disease progresses. Whether you are a medical professional, child, spouse, or friend of a patient, enhancing their quality of life should be the number one priority. Focusing on their feelings, needs, and showing love and kindness. Providing patience on having to repeat information over and over.  And compassion to their hearts and feelings. We at Balanced Mind Centers want to assist in the possibility of a cure, but we also what to assist families in providing the best quality of life their family member. Understanding that when their family member leaves this temporary world, this condition will be there. This disease takes from, but as a team, we can give in those places that are still thriving. Making more good days than bad. And in some way claiming victory as human kind. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
