Memory Loss Q & A

What is dementia?

Dementia is an umbrella term that describes changes in your brain function characterized by difficulties with thinking and remembering. Symptoms of dementia begin when nerve cells in your brain stop communicating properly. Signs that you may be experiencing dementia include:

  • Trouble focusing
  • Forgetfulness
  • Getting lost in familiar places
  • Disorientation about people and places
  • Repeating the same questions
  • Inattentiveness to personal hygiene
  • Inability to express what you want to say
  • Inaccurate distinction between colors
  • Sluggish detection of peripheral movement

Dementia usually comes on gradually and eventually impairs daily function. Because there are so many types of dementia, Dr. Naiden performs a whole health analysis and investigates your medical history before she makes a conclusive diagnosis.

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is the most well-known form of dementia. The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta reports that more than half and as many as 70% of all dementia cases are in fact Alzheimer’s disease. The debilitating disease is expected to triple in the next two decades. The risk for Alzheimer’s increases with age. 

To determine if you have Alzheimer’s, Dr. Naiden tests your vision, language, memory, focus, and attention. She'll also use braining mapping which takes pictures of your brain for analysis.

What is cognitive testing?

Advancing Health & Healing LLC conducts cognitive testing with a proprietary Brain Mapping Program. The innovative program uses biofeedback to understand and manage cognitive malfunctions and memory loss.

Dr. Naiden knows that stress is a culprit in many disease processes, including weight gain, depression, sleep problems, and memory impairment. Therefore, stress reduction is critical to memory improvement. Once stress is under control, the brain mapping protocol works to repair your cognitive function.

The cutting-edge Brain Mapping system uses the eVox System to evaluate your brain function. The machine provides a report that Dr. Naiden uses to visually display how well your memory is working and how recommended therapies may improve overall function.

Dr. Naiden and the knowledgeable team at Advancing Health & Healing LLC help you counteract and manage cognitive decline with dignity, compassion, and excellence. For your confidential assessment, call one of the offices in Tucker, Georgia or click to book online.
