Alzheimers, like other forms of dementia, is a neurodegenerative condition that affects learning, memory, and behavior. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, and can progress very slowly, or quite rapidly, resulting in the loss of brain cell connections which impact mental and physical function.
The Integrative Approach to Alzheimer’s
CentreSpringMD brings a compassionate and comprehensive approach to brain health to address the underlying metabolic, inflammatory, and mitochondrial contributors to cognitive disorders like Alzheimers.
There is no cure for Alzheimer’s, but functional medicine can support the health of the brain by optimizing digestive health, neurotransmitter function, and micronutrient status.
What causes Alzheimer’s?
Alzheimer’s disease is thought to be caused by a buildup of a type of protein, called amyloid, around brain cells. This protein prohibits brain cells from communicating normally.
If you have a family history of Alzheimer’s, you may have a slightly heightened risk if you also have other risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease, such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, or heart disease.
Functional Medicine Treatment Options
Each patient diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia receives personalized care, and may benefit from treatment options including, but not limited to:
- Genetic testing
- Improving mitochondrial function
- Heavy metal toxicity and detoxification function
- Cognitive lifestyle interventions
- IV Drip Therapy
- Diet & supplement evaluation and recommendation
