Evaluating the most effective methods of preventing dementia is difficult. By the time a person shows the signs of dementia, the changes to the brain have been taking place for many years. It addition, to slow the progression of dementia, a patient may need to combine several preventative strategies. Developing clinical trials to evaluate the different types of dementia, and all of the possible lifestyle factors that might reduce, or increase, a person’s risk of developing dementia is difficult. There are lifestyle modification recommendations that will help a person live a healthy lifestyle but they have not yet been proven to prevent or slow the progression of dementia. Stem cell therapy at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica may help improve the symptoms of dementia and potentially slow or reverse the progression of the disease but it is still unclear how a person can stop the disease from developing in the first place.
Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities. However, stem cell treatments are legal in Costa Rica.
