While Alzheimer’s disease continues to be the most recognized type of dementia, older men should also be mindful about the second most common: vascular dementia.
In vascular dementia, memory problems result from damage to large and small blood vessels in the brain. It develops when cholesterol-clogged blood vessels can’t deliver enough oxygen to the brain. Small blockages deprive some brain cells of oxygen, which causes a series of small strokes that kill brain cells. This can lead to episodes of confusion, slurred speech, and problems thinking or remembering.
Acupuncture helps to unblock the blockages, improve blood flow to the brain, and increase oxygen in the brain cells, so that it helps to prevent small strokes which could lead to vascular dementia.
