HEALTH in BALANCE
Holistic Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine
Our brain is perhaps our most important organ, and the most complex.
We need to take care of it, just as we do the rest of our body to prevent or slow the age-related degenerative processes that lead to cognitive decline and dementia.
It is now the beginning of an exciting era as 2021 heralded the groundbreaking large-scale clinical-trial of Dale Bredesen and colleagues, demonstrating REVERSAL of COGNITIVE DECLINE with an individualised nutrition & lifestyle medicine approach.
If you notice a decline in cognitive function, worsening memory, this is the time to do something about it. There are different factors causing and driving cognitive decline in different individuals. Identifying these makes it easier to correct them, and restore optimal function.
Factors such as blood sugar dysregulation, infections, an inflammatory diet, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal deficiencies, stress, sleep deprivation, poor circulation, toxin exposure and trauma can all contribute to worsening brain function and development of Alzheimer's or related dementias.
The fantastic news is that these are largely REVERSIBLE factors. Whilst dead neurons cannot be recovered, poor cellular function can often be improved, when the imbalances are addressed.
Addressing cognitive decline requires an individualised approach, and the sooner you take the first steps, the better capacity for improvement.
Initial consultation and assessment based on your health history, signs, symptoms, dietary habits and any existing test results.
Comprehensive blood panel to identify imbalances and areas needing attention.
(Referral to your GP if required)
