Functional Medicine Approach to Neurodegenerative Diseases (NDDs) from Parkinson’s Disease, to Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Neurodegenerative disease (NDDs) is an umbrella term for a range of conditions that primarily affect the neurons in the human brain. Neurodegenerative diseases are the result of damage that occurs at a cellular level.
More specifically, neurons are the building blocks of the nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Neurons normally don’t reproduce or replace themselves. This means the body cannot replace them when they become damaged or die. Examples of neurodegenerative diseases include Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s disease.
Neurodegenerative diseases are incurable and debilitating conditions that result in progressive degeneration or death of nerve cells. This causes problems with movement or mental functioning.
At Peak Health Institute, our approach aims to restore cellular efficiency, repair oxidative stress, and enhance neuroprotection. Due to the nature of neurodegenerative diseases, we understand the urgency of finding solutions and offering treatments that work.
Functional medicine is a holistic approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of diseases rather than just treating symptoms. Regarding neurodegenerative diseases, we focus on the immune system’s role in those diseases and adopt a unique and comprehensive approach to treating these complex conditions.Schedule a Consultation Today!
