Brain Health

Brain health is important to women and men of all ages. Common conditions associated with poor brain health include depression, anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, eating disorders, addiction, ADHD, learning disorders, aged-related cognitive impairment, and dementia. In many cases, by improving brain health these brain conditions can improve greatly and resolve with time.

Metabolic dementia is a growing problem in older persons in the United States. This dementia is caused by a change in the body’s metabolism. Metabolic dementia is oftentimes misdiagnosed and treated as Alzheimer’s Dementia. It can be reversed by treating the underlying problem, unlike Alzheimer’s Disease.

Common conditions that can lead to metabolic dementia are:

  • Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism
  • Hypo or Hyper Adrenal Gland Dysfunction
  • Hyperparathyroidism
  • Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Heavy Metal Toxicity
  • Liver Disease
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Dehydration
  • Prescription  and OTC drugs
