Balanced Brain Health Lifestyle

A brain health lifestyle includes aerobic exercise and strength training, combined with stretching, balance and flexibility as well as mental stimulation and computerized cognitive training.

Common Conditions Treated

Deficits in Attention

Problems with immediate memory can often be traced back to deficits in encoding and processing information. Normal aging can result in cognitive slowing, with chronic medical issues and neurodegenerative disorders increasing the risk of brain inflammation and cerebral vascular disease. In addition, environmental factors such as background noise or attempts at multitasking can result in decreased concentration. Information that is not well recorded cannot be retrieved at a later time.

Chronic and Acute Health Issues

Obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and obstructive sleep apnea are at near epidemic levels.  RMMC is attentive to chronic life style diseases which can magnify the normal process of aging, increase serious memory impairment and risk of cerebral vascular disease. Mixed dementia is now the most prevalent type of degenerative memory loss.  Acute medical issues can lead to confusion, disorientation or agitated behaviors.

Changes in Mood

We are all overloaded and trying to juggle too many plates. Insomnia, fatigue, stress, irritability and depression can result in immediate memory loss. Normal aging can magnify minor issues with anxiety, irritability, and compulsive behaviors. In addition, certain dementias can result in significant behavioral, mood and personality changes.
