When our mental abilities decline to the point that it affects our daily life…
When we lose our memory, language skills, making sense of the things we see, solving problems, doing every day tasks, and have a hard time focusing and paying attention…
It can be dementia. The most common form is Alzheimer’s disease. It occurs when there are plaques and tangles inside the brain. It also includes brain cells becoming disconnected. 
But what about Sauna? If it’s good for heart health, is it also good for brain health?
The answer is yes, provided sauna is used most days of the week... similar to exercise.
For people who used sauna for 4–7 days a week, they were half as likely to have dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
