As a matter of fact, many questions might be swirling in your head, with very few apparent answers; and, in the middle of all this, one thing you are very scared of is the wrong information that is quite commonly going around, concerning dementia. Fortunately, we are here to help you sort, all your confusion and to give you a brief idea about the facts; further to which, we urge you not to believe on those myths that have been conveyed to you.

Myth 1 # Dementia is just an old age syndrome

Many of us are having a general impression that dementia is just an old age syndrome; however, studies have indicated that dementia is a milder form of neurodegenerative disorder and is not just limited to the older population. Statistics tells us that out of more than 10 million of urban population that is being battling with the diseases, like Alzheimer and/or dementia; almost up to 7% are younger generation in their mid-30’s and 40’s, suffering with the early onset dementia.

Myth 2 # It is just another form of forgetfulness

If you are ignoring your early dementia, as just another form of forgetfulness, then you are sadly mistaken. Scientists, on the contrary have described the disease as a group of symptoms, which may severely hamper cognitive, memory, thinking and social abilities of a person.

Myth 4 # If you have no family history for Alzheimer, you are not at a risk

It is usually being believed that people without any genetic predisposition are not at a risk of being affected with dementia. However, it is not true; in the sense, there are lot of environmental triggers, like chronic fatigue, stress, vitamin deficiency, air and noise pollution, etc. that have been identified recently.

Myth 5 # Once you are diagnosed with Dementia; there is no cure!

You might have been consulted through your practitioner that nothing can be done, once you are diagnosed with dementia. However, this can be considered as partially true, because conventional medicines cannot cure the issue or reverse the damage for that matter; but with technical advancements it is possible to reverse the neuronal damage associated with the condition, through administration of autologous stem cells.

Various clinical studies in this regard, have been published in the international journals; suggesting a combination of exercises, mental stimulation programmes, nutrition and stemcells therapy, to bring in the possible regenerative effect.

Myth 6 # Dementia is a normal part of ageing

Most people are forced to believe that the dementia is a normal part of ageing; and is quite obvious, if you are passed through a certain age. However, they should understand that dementia is never to be considered as normal ageing, as it is associated with lot of severe indications, Alzheimer’s disorders, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, vitamin deficiency, etc. Thus, you should not expect your cognitive functions to go down suddenly without a solid reason; and hence need an immediate medical attention.
