We understand the challenges faced by patients and their families when dealing with dementia, and we are here to offer comprehensive solutions tailored to each individual’s unique needs.
Understanding Dementia: Unraveling the Neurological Mysteries
Dementia is an umbrella term for a group of cognitive disorders that impair memory, thinking, and the ability to perform daily activities. While each form of dementia has distinct characteristics, they all share a commonality: they affect the brain’s functioning and lead to a decline in cognitive abilities.
Alzheimer’s Disease: This progressive and irreversible (seeing rebuttal for this is current research) brain disorder is the most prevalent form of dementia. It is characterized by the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaques and tau protein tangles in the brain, which disrupt communication between nerve cells, resulting in memory loss and cognitive decline. Mostly initiated or predetermined by a genetic variant however caused by poor diet and lifestyle and avoided all together by controlled diet and mild exercise.
Lewy Body Dementia: Lewy bodies are abnormal protein deposits in the brain that lead to cognitive fluctuations, visual hallucinations, and motor difficulties, akin to Parkinson’s disease. Memory loss and reasoning impairments are also prominent features. It is highly linked to diet and the vagus verve. Developing protein aggregates on the gut-brain axis from chronic poor diet and lack of exercise can lead to Lewy Body dementia.
Frontotemporal Dementia: This type of dementia primarily affects the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, leading to changes in personality, behavior, and language difficulties. Memory loss may not be as evident in the early stages. FTD has been shown to be highly unlikely in individuals with diverse friend groups and a healthy lifestyle of whole food and exercise. Research indicates individuals age 65 and older with 5 or more close friends have an 80% less likelihood of developing FTD.
Cutting-Edge Treatments: Pioneering Neurological Solutions
At Axon Integrative Health, we pride ourselves on offering cutting-edge treatments that go beyond conventional approaches. Our goal is to address the underlying physiological changes in the brain while promoting overall well-being. Here are some of the innovative treatments we offer:
Transcranial Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT or tPBM) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS): These non-invasive techniques use targeted light or magnetic pulses to stimulate specific areas of the brain. tPBM and TMS have shown promising results in enhancing cognitive function and reducing cognitive decline.
Translingual Neural Stimulation (TLNS): This form of electrical nerve stimulation targets the 4 large nerves we have in our tongue that synapse into the brainstem. By stimulating the tongue we enhance cortical (brain) excitability to learn and form new memories for hours after. It also helps improve balance, focus, and attention which can be all hindered with dementia.
Neuro-Acupuncture: Involves placing acupuncture needles in the scalp to encourage blood flow and neuronal connections of the underlying lobes or areas of the brain. This can encourage improved memory (retro – old memories and antero- future memory creation), balance, focus, and pain mitigation. Since the needles are in the scalp we typically couple this therapy with others to not only have outside stimulation but to activate internal stimulation during neuro-cognitive training.
IV Therapy with Hydration and Methylene Blue: Intravenous hydration therapy is an effective method to deliver essential nutrients and hydration directly to the body. Methylene Blue, a medication with potential neuroprotective effects, is also administered to support brain health and optimize cognition.
Neurofeedback Therapy: By providing real-time feedback on brainwave activity, neurofeedback helps patients improve cognitive function, reduce anxiety, and enhance overall brain performance.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: This treatment involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, increasing oxygen levels in the brain, and promoting cellular repair and regeneration.
Functional Movement and Full Body Vibration: Physical activity and full body vibration have been shown to support brain health and cognitive function, encouraging proper lymph drainage and blood flow, as well as improved muscle activation and brain-body connection to help patients lead an active lifestyle.
Nutraceutical Support: Our team of experts designs personalized nutraceutical plans to ensure patients receive the necessary vitamins, minerals, and supplements to support brain health based on the lab results that you have or we have taken for you.
Neuro Cognitive Training: Tailored cognitive training programs help enhance memory, problem-solving skills, and overall cognitive abilities, empowering patients to better manage their condition.
