Gradual loss of memory due to age or any other factor is termed as Dementia. With age there is calcium deposit in the brain which makes the functioning of the brain less than normal. The ability to think and to remember things reduces and affects the daily functioning which makes dependence on others more pronounced. The most common type of dementia is caused by Alzheimer's Disease, however other forms of dementia also exist. Some people have a photographic memory till very late in their life while others start to forget things and events around the age of 60 years. In India this syndrome is called `Sathiya Jana' in common parlance. Excessive Alcohol or Caffeine usage can also dull the brain much faster and bring about dementia much earlier than others.
Dementia is quite easily diagnosed on a CT Scan as the radiologists are able to see the calcium deposits and compare it with the normal brain of a person of the same age. There is no definitive treatment for reversing dementia and the best course of treatment lies not in medications but in lifestyle modifications. Regular Exercise, staying stress free, doing yoga and meditation are all known to keep the brain sharp. Playing mental games like Chess or Crossword puzzles also keeps the brain cells active till a much advanced age than otherwise. Medicines are normally not prescribed for the treatment of dementia due to their side effects and limited benefits. Morning walk and Yoga will keep all the faculties of your body in top shape.
Since Morning Walk does not cost any money except the investment on a good pair of shoes, the best way to keep dementia away is keep walking all your life. Avoid lift and climb stairs to keep your bones, muscles and mental faculties in top shape. Doctors do not have the treatment for Dementia so the best doctor for the treatment of dementia is you only. If you follow a healthy lifestyle, stay stress free then your brain would be alive and kicking for a very long time. Age dulls your brain but look at people who are mentally agile even in their nineties and follow their footsteps. If there is any chance that you are losing memory then change the course of your life before it is too late.
