Mild Cognitive Impairment Treatment

Mild cognitive impairment treatment, (MCI) is there anything out there that will actually work?

While the medical community is split with their opinions, there is some new evidence coming out that will be documented at the bottom of the page for you to review and make your own decision.

Mild Cognitive Impairment Treatment

However, much like the foods for your brain, there is always proactive steps that you can take even as we hit our 50’s and beyond.

And remember, it is never too late to feed your brain and help stop memory loss.

In looking at a Mild cognitive impairment treatment, (MCI), it is helpful to really understand what it is.

According to the Mayo Clinic, it may possibly be a stage that lies between the effect of normal aging and a much more serious condition, dementia.

The key to actually treating it or better yet taking proactive steps to slow any type of memory loss, is to understand the symptoms and not ignore them

All of us have throughout our lives have forgotten things, misplaced things, or “spaced things out” as that is normal for any human being.

However, if it becomes persistent, it is no longer normal.  

Symptoms of MCI

The symptoms of MCI can be very gradual or in advanced conditions, really start to become an issue.  

Our brains are no different than the rest of our body as we advance in years, as it will wear down and weaken unless you “feed it properly”.

However, if you have not, there are some very distinct signs and warning signals you can watch for.

The earlier that you can identify them, the sooner you can test and try the right Mild cognitive impairment treatment yourself.

Here are some of the symptoms

  • You are starting to forget things a lot more frequently
  • You are forgetting birthdays and special dates
  • You are starting to forget people’s names
  • You are in the middle of talking and forget your train of thought
  • You are suddenly feeling overwhelmed by mundane tasks
  • You do  not remember land marks or locations as quickly
  • You are hesitate to make very easy decisions
  • Your immediate circle of family, friends, and coworkers are noticing these changes
  • You are starting to feel depressed
  • You are starting to be agitated very easily

Any type of Mild cognitive impairment treatment will never be exact, as the actual cause is still not fully understood.

However, what is understood is that your brain is shrinking; or is it?

Could it be that Atrophy, Demyelination, or Ischemia is actually affecting your brain?

MCI Causes

While it is extensively documented that Mild cognitive impairment causes is still not known, there are some very strong theories.

The first of those is referred to as Atrophy, which is shrinkage of your brain believed to be the result of a lower amount of brain cells being made.

Demyelination is where your sheathing that surrounds your neurons has weakened.  

I am a firm believer that if you build and protect your “myelin sheath” you may never face memory loss and this is covered in depth on another page.

Ischemia is the restriction of blood flow to the brain, another potential by product of a weak “myelin sheath”.

Treatments

Mild cognitive impairment treatment will all center on your diet and some little known nutritional supplements that may have a huge impact.

Here is the list of potential treatments. 

  • Gastrodin
  • Vitamin D
  • Methylcobalamin—a form of B-12
  • Ashwagandha
  • Vinpocetine
  • Blueberry extract

OK, so what exactly are these supplements and how and why can they possibly help as a mild cognitive impairment treatment.

Let’s start with Gastrodin. Gastrodin is an extract form the root of an exotic orchid, and has been used for centuries by the Chinese.

It has been used for a wide range of mild cognitive issues including seizures, vertigo, and severe headaches.

In the Far East it is considered the “brain shield” that helps to prevent the aging of the brain.

Its major role is increasing blood circulation to your brain as well as neural plasticity, which helps send signals to the brain.

Vitamin D has been long associated with promoting brain health and several experts agree that this is the most prevalent vitamin deficiency in seniors.

Low levels are believed to trigger several memory issues and conditions.

Methylcobalamin, a form of Vitamin B-12 is emerging as a real leader in neural myelination, strengthening your “myelin sheath”, as well as basic cognitive functions.

Next on the list of possible mild cognitive impairment treatment is Ashwagandha.

Ashwagandha is better known as Indian ginseng as well as gooseberry. This supplement has been used for centuries as well to reduce stress and stabilizing brain rhythms.

Vinpocetine, a plant derivative, is found in the leaves of the periwinkle plant.

In Europe and Japan it is a prescription. However, in the US and Canada it is a supplement that helps blood circulation to your brain.

Last on the list of a possible treatment is Blueberry extract.

Blueberry extract is believed to also increase your brains plasticity.

These potential treatments are at least worth trying if you start to develop any of the MCI symptoms.
