Reduce Your Risk

Finding Hope

Dementia occurence in the U.S. today has reached epidemic numbers. Everybody knows somebody with Alzheimer’s or some other type of dementia. Family members, friends and spouses that have watched a loved one go through a life with dementia are scared and worried. They know that it can be hereditary. They know that this increases their risk.

Many young people don’t know that the choices you make today have a correlation to your risk of developing dementia later in life.

Often, people in this situation aren’t sure what they can do to help themselves. Many people have misconceptions like “it’s a normal part of aging” and “there’s nothing I can do” because “it runs in my family”.


Another misconception is that it is an “old person’s disease” that just rears its ugly head randomly and spontaneously in your 70s or 80s. This simply is not true.

Healthy Body, Healthy Brain

The latest data and research shows that lifestyle choices that we make today directly correlate to our risk for developing Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia later in life.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.

The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers clients, health coaches and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each client's genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved client outcomes.
