Preventing Dementia and Alzheimer's - Brain Health

Preventing Dementia and Alzheimer's - Brain Health 

Optimal aging means more than just achieving peak physical health—it also means having a healthy brain. Much like physical health, brain health can be viewed along a continuum—from optimal function to mild cognitive impairment, to severe dementia or Alzheimer's. Brain or "cognitive function" includes your intelligence, memory, and creativity, and your ability to concentrate, communication, and interact with the world. Although you may notice some brain changes--memory lapses, decreased mental sharpness, slowed processing speed, poor attention span, or changes in mood--many forms of cognitive decline are too subtle to notice.

Mental decline does not have to be an inevitable part of aging. Early detection of cognitive decline is critical to reverse it, and to prevent further decline or dementia. Neurocognitive function testing establishes a baseline, and enables us to target treatments to your specific deficits. Follow up testing helps determine treatment success and guides future brain enhancement protocols.

HormoneSynergy offers inexpensive, thorough, computer-based neurocognitive function testing for patients and non-patients. This testing can be performed in our office or on your own home computer.
