cognitive problems cognitive issues short term memory loss brain health

Are you experiencing moments of uncertainty, asking yourself, "Where did my mind go?" Do you struggle with forgetting names, finding the right words, or notice these issues in a loved one? The fear of losing our memory and brain function looms large as we age, particularly when we have family members diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's disease. However, it's important to know that we can have an impact on how our brain ages. Our lifestyle choices can override the genetic predisposition for Alzheimer's!


At Radiantly Healthy MD, our medical director, Dr. Rebecca Hunton, specializes in proactive and personalized brain health. She remains up-to-date with the latest research and protocols, not only to support our patients but also their family members. Did you know that the brain changes associated with Alzheimer's can be detected up to 20 years before symptoms appear? Adopting a brain-healthy lifestyle can prevent the progression of degeneration and, in some cases, even lead to reversal. Through assessing genetics, lifestyle factors, and validated biomarkers, we create comprehensive personalized plans for patients who want to take a proactive approach to their brain health.


Understanding Dementia:

Dementia encompasses brain degeneration in three major areas:


  1. Memory

  2. Cognitive thinking

  3. Personality and behavior.

Alzheimer's disease is the most prevalent form of dementia, with over 5.7 million individuals carrying this diagnosis. Like many chronic diseases, its prevalence is rapidly increasing. While deaths from heart disease have decreased by 11% in the last 15 years, deaths from Alzheimer's have soared by 123%. Currently, Alzheimer's ranks as the sixth leading cause of death, claiming more lives than prostate and breast cancer combined. Unfortunately, women are the most affected, both in terms of susceptibility to the disease and being 2.5 times more likely to provide direct care to someone with dementia.


Several factors increase your risk of dementia and other brain degenerative diseases:

  • Genetics and family history of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) including concussions

  • Alcohol or substance abuse

  • Obesity

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Pre-diabetes or diabetes

  • Cancer chemotherapy

  • Sleep apnea

  • Female sex

  • Chronic infections


  • Mood changes (often precede other symptoms)

  • Difficulty learning new things and resistance to change

  • Physical changes in gait, balance, and dexterity

  • Word finding difficulty

  • Memory loss

  • Difficulty with previously mastered tasks (such as a checkbook)
