Brain health throughout the lifespan

Memory and dementia 

 

Memory loss is a common condition occurring with age.  Because there are over 40 causes of progressive memory loss in addition to Alzheimer's disease, comprehensive and accurate diagnosis is essential to effectively treat the underlying cause of cognitive decline. 

 

Our comprehensive evaluation targets identification of the following conditions:

  • Nutritional deficiencies including B12, thiamine

  • Microvascular disease affecting the smallest blood vessels in the brain

  • Post-concussive disorder and traumatic brain injury

  • Mood disorders including depression and anxiety

  • Hydrocephalus

  • Seizure disorders

  • Medication side effects

  • Neuro-inflamamtory and infectious disease affecting the brain

  • Sleep disorders including insomnia and apnea

  • Neuro-degenerative disease including Alzheimer's and fronto-temporal dementia

 

We believe that all patients, regardless of the causes of cognitive decline, have the potential for significant improvement in memory and other brain functions with the correct combination of treatments.  Our treatment regimen for a patient diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease typically combines the following  elements:

  • FDA-approved treatments approved for Alzheimer's disease

  • Adjustments to diet and the addition of specific nutritional supplements

  • Evaluation of exercise and referral for physical training or therapies

  • Adjustment of psychoactive medications that can interfere with memory and cognitive functioning

  • Effective treatment of mood disorders including anxiety, insomnia and other sleep disorders, other general medical conditions
