Reversing Cognitive Decline
Dementia & memory loss are on the rise, and many people think this is a normal part of aging. However, cognitive decline CAN be prevented and even reversed! As the number of people with Alzheimer’s disease grows, it is currently the seventh leading cause of death in our society.
While many people think that having memory loss is a normal part of aging, cognitive decline can be prevented and even reversed using methods of Functional Medicine. The current diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease remains imperfect. True diagnosis is only possible upon examining the brain after death. Modern pharmaceuticals address only the symptoms of cognitive decline. Functional Medicine seeks to find the underlying cause of cognitive decline and treat memory loss & dementia using an ‘upstream’ approach.
Signs of cognitive disorders may include confusion, poor motor coordination, loss of short-term or long-term memory, identity confusion, changes in mood, difficulty completing normal tasks and impaired judgment.
Personalized medicine helps us to think about the individual rather than the disease. Functional Medicine allows us to review genetic predisposition, environmental factors, and assess nutrition & metabolic needs to determine root causes to cognitive decline. Functional Medicine combines cutting edge scientific resources such as genomics with a whole-body approach in treating the patient, rather than merely the symptoms. Some contributing factors may include impaired gut health, stress, lack of exercise and movement, sleep, metabolic conditions, nutritional deficiencies, heavy metal toxicity, and genetic predisposition, among others.
At Advanced Metabolic & Functional Medicine Center, our team has access to the most recent insights about the root causes of cognitive decline. We will have a detailed conversation with you about your medical history and the severity of your symptoms before developing an effective root cause treatment method.
