Are you finding it harder to remember simple things? Things like, where you put your keys, names, places, dates or phone numbers? It can be scary to feel like your memory is fading.
Many of us just assume that memory problems are part of the normal aging process and assume a little loss is okay. Your fuzzy memory can progress to a loss of motivation, foggy thinking, decreased attention span or difficulty performing simple tasks like balancing your check book.
According to the Alzheimer Association:
- As many as 5.3 million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer’s.
- Every 70 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s.
- Alzheimer’s is the seventh-leading cause of death.
Neurodegeneration is an accelerating and progressive condition.
Early detection is key. Outside of traditional methods what else can be done to extend the quality of day to day life? We are not here to replace your traditional care options, only enhance your outcomes and give you the best chance to live well.
Are there ways to increase blood flow and decrease the inflammation that bring about these problems?
Are you looking for cutting edge scientific treatment methods that provide a safe, natural way of protecting the brain from further damage?
If you have been diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s, Dementia or any other neurodegenerative disorder, we can help.
In our office, we start with a comprehensive history and questionnaire that provides a starting point for care. We look at lab work for important neuro-inflammatory markers (Homocysteine, highly sensitive C-reactive protein, blood glucose, serum fibrinogen, cortisol and hormones).
We also check the integrity of the blood brain barrier. The blood brain barrier is your brain’s defense against bacteria, viruses, chemicals and other invaders. A GABA challenge test will tell us if your blood brain barrier is intact. This is very important to stop inflammation and accelerated degeneration!
We also test to see if you have other factors (too numerous to mention) that can affect your condition.
There are safe, effective therapies along with metabolic and nutritional protocols that can help rejuvenate and repair damaged nerves.
