MEMORY AND ALZHEIMER’S SUPPORT

dementia_01

Who is this for?

Individuals who have an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s due to genetics

Anyone having challenges with memory and cognition

Those who have already been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment or Alzheimer’s disease

Research indicates that many factors leading to the development of Alzheimer’s and other forms of cognitive impairment are preventable.

Our team utilizes the work of Dr. Dale Bredesen through the ReCODE and REVERSE programs to do everything we can to help prevent and treat mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Programs

Individuals concerned about developing Dementia

Do you have a family history of dementia?

Are you experiencing episodes of memory loss or “senior moments”?

Do you want to do everything you can to avoid this omnipotent disease?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this four-month program is designed to help you.

This program aims to assess the approximately 40 known contributory factors to the development of Alzheimer’s disease, based on the work of world-renowned neurologist Dr. Dale Bredesen.

CONSULTATIONS AND ASSESSMENT

What is included in this four-month program?


  • A total of 9 visits with a Naturopathic Doctor, Nurse practitioner and nutrition consultant.

  • Initial consultation and exam and two follow up consultations with each practitioner:

    • Naturopathic Doctor: Initial 1.5-hour consult and two 45-minute follow up consultations.

    • Nurse practitioner: Initial 1-hour consult, and one 60 -minute follow up and one 30-minute follow up.

    • Nutrition consultant: three 1-hour consultations.

  • Complete nutrition assessment and two follow up consults to help support you on the best diet known to help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease.

  • Review of current medications and supplements to help provide the ideal individualized supportive program for you.

COGNITIVE ASSESSMENT

  • Neurocognitive test: A non-invasive clinical procedure to efficiently and objectively assess a broad spectrum of brain function performance or domains under challenge. Sample PDF Report.
  • MoCA test.

TESTING


  • ApoE4 gene risk factor assessment.

  • Full panel of blood work assessing vitamin levels, hormone levels, thyroid levels, general organ function, hydration levels, adequate protein intake, cholesterol and lipid levels, lipoprotein particle assessment, immune system function, inflammatory markers, iron levels, electrolyte markers and others.

  • Heavy metal toxicity testing.

  • Alzheimer’s LINX blood test to assess presence of risk factors and makers known to be associated with cognitive decline.

What happens in the initial evaluation?

We will review medical and family history, assess medications and supplements, identify the specifics surrounding the concerning family traits or personal episodic experiences, perform physical exams including a cognitive assessment exam, order individual extensive lab work, and initiate a personalized treatment plan.

What other tests might be recommended?

These items might be recommended based on an individuals’ case but are NOT included in the program:


  • Chronic viral infections panels.

  • Gastrointestinal assessment panels.

  • Cone Beam CT scan of Root canals.

  • MRI of your brain.

COSTS

  • Total cost for the 4 month program: $4,500CAD.

Individuals already struggling with cognitive impairment, memory loss, or Alzheimer’s Disease

Are you experiencing episodes of memory loss or “senior moments”?

Have you already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or mild cognitive impairment?

If you answered yes to one of the above questions, this six-month program is designed to help you.

This program aims to assess and support the approximately 40 known contributory factors to the development of Alzheimer’s disease, based on the work of world-renowned neurologist Dr. Dale Bredesen.

CONSULTATIONS AND ASSESSMENT

What is included in this six-month program?

  • A total of 15 visits with a Naturopathic Doctor, Nurse practitioner and nutrition consultant.
  • Initial consultation and exam and follow up consultations with each practitioner include:
    • Naturopathic Doctor: Initial 1.5-hour consult and four 45-minute follow up consultations.
    • Nurse practitioner: Initial 1-hour consult, one 60 -minute follow up and two 30-minute follow up consultations.
    • Nutrition consultant: Three 1-hour consultations and three 30-minute consultations.
  • Complete nutrition assessment and five follow up consults to help support you on the best diet known to help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease.
  • Review of current medications and supplements to help provide the ideal individualized supportive program for you.

COGNITIVE ASSESSMENT

  • Two Neurocognitive tests at the beginning and the end of the 6-month program: A non-invasive clinical procedure to efficiently and objectively assess a broad spectrum of brain function performance or domains under challenge. Sample PDF Report.
  • Two MoCA tests at the beginning and end of the program to assess for cognitive baseline levels and any changes.

TESTING


  • Full panel of blood work assessing vitamin levels, hormone levels, thyroid levels, general organ function, hydration levels, adequate protein intake, cholesterol and lipid levels, lipoprotein particle assessment, immune system function, inflammatory markers, iron levels, electrolyte markers and others.

  • Heavy metal toxicity testing.

  • Alzheimer’s LINX blood test to assess presence of risk factors and makers known to be associated with cognitive decline.

IV SUPPORT

A total of 6 IV nutrient therapy infusions containing Phosphatidylcholine, high levels and vitamins and minerals and Glutathione. IV’s are done weekly for four weeks and then every other week for four weeks. Each IV will take 2-2.5 hours.

Phosphatidylcholine has some preliminary evidence supporting its roll in memory and cognition.

Intravenous phosphatidylcholine (PC) is one of our staples supports for memory and cognition, liver detoxification and cardiac cell health. PC is one of the primary substances which makes up the white matter in your brain and around your other nervous tissue. By infusing PC we try to encourage the body to replace the older, less healthy PC around the cells with new, vibrant PC molecules. PC also helps form Acetylcholine in the brain which is one of the important neurotransmitters involved in memory and cognition.

Nutrient and vitamin IV

This IV combines a wide range of minerals and vitamins and delivers it right into the blood stream. These nutrients provide a boost to the immune system and can help supplement nutrients you are not getting elsewhere. Especially helpful individuals who have poor digestion and absorption, those with fatigue and those on a restricted diet.

Glutathione

This is known as the “master antioxidant.” As it is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants available. Glutathione (GSH) is an important compound naturally present in the body throughout life. Research indicated that production levels reduce substantially as we age. Glutathione plays an important roll in several reactions in the body. It is an antioxidant neutralizing free radicals and helps maintain levels of Vitamins C and E in their reduced (active) state.

What happens in the initial evaluation?

We will review medical and family history, assess medications and supplements, identify the specifics surrounding the concerning family traits or personal episodic experiences, perform physical exams including a cognitive assessment exam, order individual extensive lab work, and initiate a personalized treatment plan.

Additional Questions You May Have

Most labs are covered by AHS however some speciality labs are not. Unfortunately, consultations are not covered by health coverage.

We will review medical and family history, assess medications and supplements, identify the specifics surrounding the cognitive decline or concerning family traits, perform physical exams including a cognitive assessment exam, order individual extensive lab work, and initiate a personalized treatment plan

Treatment recommendations utilize nutrition changes, supplements, IV therapy, brain training stimulation, exercise recommendations, sleep and stress support, and interventions for hormones, inflammation, thyroid, blood sugar, toxicity and viral load when indicated.
