Neuro-Degeneration / Parkinsons / Alzheimers
It’s one thing to lose your energy, or your waistline, or your looks.
It’s another thing to lose your brain.
Losing one’s brain with close-to-end of life aging was once an accepted occurrence. Tough on the spouse, tough on the kids.
In the past few decades we’ve seen a different phenomenon:
- Alzheimer’s “Pre-Senile” Dementia occuring earlier and earlier, sometimes in the mid-fifties
- the same with Parkinson’s Disease
- increasing number and earlier onset of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- an epidemic of Neuro-degeneration in infants called Autism
The phenomenology is so overwhelming we’ve been searching for laboratory markers and aggressive, early treatments which may, in not cure, certainly mitigate the progression of these horrible conditions.
While Big Pharma would love to find the ‘magic pill’, the Center for Wellness & Integrative Medicine continues to work with colleagues around the world in both diagnostics and innovative Regenerative therapies for these disabiling conditions.
If you have someone you love with a NeuroDegenerative Condition, please make the no-charge appointment to consult with Dr Tom. It’s a rapidly evolving field, and earlier is certainly better.
