Why Brain Health Check
Your brain is the most remarkable and miraculous organ ever created. In this three pound organ contains our thoughts, emotions, imagination and the control centre for just about every one of our bodily functions.
In spite of its prominent position in our bodily heirachy, it is seldom an organ which commands much attention – until something happens! Stroke is the 3rd commonest cause of disability and death; and Alzheimer’s Disease, dementias and emotional disorders are becoming a worldwide epidemic.
In these days of high stress, poor diet and sedentary lifestyle, doctors are increasingly confronted with patients with mental, emotional and physical symptoms relating to the nervous system. Poor memory, poor concentration, anxiety and emotional disorders are such common complaints! Do I have Alzheimer’s Disease? Do I have Parkinson’s Disease? Did I have a stroke?
The purpose of the Brain Health Clinic (BHC) is to assess one’s brain function status and to prevent the development of degenerative brain disorders.
