There is Hope

Forgetting things you used to recall easily can be frightening, but there are things you can do to improve your memory.

Ever misplace your phone, forget someone’s name, or struggle to find the right words? Of course, you have. It happens to all of us. But if you find it happening more and more, it may predict trouble, especially if your memory is worse than it was 10 years ago. People who complain about memory loss and declining cognitive skills have an 80% chance that it will get worse unless they do something about it!

When forgetfulness begins to affect your daily life – and the lives of those close to you – that’s when you need to seek help.

Many people don’t seek treatment because they mistakenly believe there’s nothing you can do about memory loss. After all, you may have heard that as we get older, we lose about 85,000 brain cells a day. Sounds scary, but in spite of the natural aging process, you have a choice in how fast your brain ages. Of course, not everyone can prevent memory loss, but there are so many things you CAN do to help your brain.

Is it Dementia or Something Else?

Did you know that some people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, really have something else? And that by treating the underlying condition, their memory improves?

At Amen Clinics, we have identified 11 major risk factors that steal your mind. Knowing your risk factors and how to overcome them is critical to rescuing your memory. We developed the mnemonic “BRIGHT MINDS” to help you remember the 11 risk factors.

BRIGHT MINDS stands for:

  • B is for Blood Flow
  • R is for Retirement/Aging
  • I is for Inflammation
  • G is for Genetics
  • H is for Head Trauma
  • T is for Toxins
  • M is for Mental Health
  • I is for Immunity/Infections
  • N is for Neurohormone Issues
  • D is for Diabesity
  • S is for Sleep

When Memory Loss Is a Sign of Dementia

Progressive memory problems and a decline in cognitive skills may be warning signs of dementia—especially when combined with any of the BRIGHT MINDS risk factors listed above. Research has revealed that processes involved in dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, start in the brain decades before symptoms appear.

At Amen Clinics, we use leading-edge brain imaging technology that can detect abnormal patterns in the brain early in the course of the disease, and in some instances, even before symptoms develop. Early detection with brain imaging gives people the opportunity to get treatment in the beginning stages of the disease, when it is most effective.

Getting the Right Treatment Depends on the Right Diagnosis

Dementia isn’t a simple or single disorder. One size does NOT fit all. Treatment that works for one person won’t work for everybody, and it could even make you worse!

Our brain imaging allows us to identify common types of dementia, including:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Frontal-Temporal Lobe Dementia
  • Alcohol-Related Dementia
  • Vascular Dementia
  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
  • Pseudodementia

With the world’s largest database of functional brain scans — 150,000 and growing — from patients from all 50 states and 120 countries, our physicians are able to more accurately diagnose dementia and related conditions than any other healthcare professionals.
