Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Have you had a significant bump to the head? Recent research is finding that concussions and other TBI's (traumatic brain injuries) can increase the risk for Alzheimer's disease in later life. UT Southwestern Peter O"Donnell Jr. Brain Institute conducted an autopsy study on 2100 cases. Their conclusion with the study, is that a TBI that occurred with a loss of consciousness greater than 5 minutes can lead to a diagnosis of dementia 2 1/2 years earlier than cases with no TBI.
Some TBI's can accelerate the onset of Alzheimer's by 9 years. Some doctors and researchers point to the inflammation that occurs after TBI's. This inflammation can set the stage for later neurodegenerative diseases. There are also other factors such as genetics, unknown triggers or risk factors that need to be taken into consideration.
Researchers are also looking into the role of TBI's and depression. Long term studies are being conducted with athletes, these could take up to 60 or 70 years to come to a conclusion.
LENS neurofeedback can correct the neurological problems in the brain. Why wait to see what happens. I worked in a care facility for dementia. This is not an easy way to go, for yourself or your family.
