Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease are neurological disorders, meaning they affect the central nervous system which sends signals from the brain the rest of the body. Alzheimer’s disease mainly effects memory while Parkinson’s Disease has a larger impact on a person’s movement.
Although there is no cure for either of these diseases our doctors have the knowledge and experience necessary to combat, and lessen symptoms of them by addressing the host of the disease. We look to improve the health of the nervous system by correcting any imbalances rather than just using a different medication for each symptom individually.
During your initial appointment, your functional medicine provider will go over a detailed health history and discuss any current symptoms you are having. If the situation calls for it we have the ability run blood chemistry markers, and in serious cases an MRI may be run so they can evaluate what the next steps should be and create an individualized health care plan just for you. They will proceed to address your illness with supplementation and nutritional advice as well as any other treatment methods they believe will be beneficial to you, individually, depending on your current symptoms and severity of the case. You will also meet with a health coach to go over any nutritional and dietary changes, and a clinical psychologist to address any emotional or mental concerns.
