Brain Health

Do you think losing your memory or having “senior moments” are just part of the “normal” aging process?

Well, that could not be further from the truth! Your brain is one of the most vital and complex organs in your body. For one, your brain is essentially who you are. It allows you to think, learn, make decisions, feel and understand emotions all while sending signals to control the rest of your body! The brain is a beautiful creation which should be nourished and taken care of. This can be achieved though proper nutrition, lifestyle, and the environment in which you are exposed to.

Do you have a family member who has struggled with Alzheimer’s or Dementia?

Just because you may have a genetic predisposition to cognitive decline does not mean that it is your destiny! Having gene for cognitive decline does not mean it will become activated. The environment in which you expose your body to will determine if this gene will be switched on. A poor diet and a lack of sleep are among the biggest offenders in contributing to poor brain health.

Alzheimer’s and Dementia, which are diseases resulting from neurodegeneration, can be prevented. However, if start having symptoms of cognitive decline it can often be too late. There are many aspects that contribute your brain health. Brain degeneration often starts a decade before the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and Dementia occur. Alzheimer’s and Dementia develop later in life, that is why it is so IMPORTANT that you take care of your brain now because it is the only one you have! The old saying is true… If you do not USE it, you LOSE it!

At AMP Chiropractic & Integrative Wellness, the utilization of Functional Medicine is a great way to combat the declining brain. In our practice test, we do not guess! Many people have also never had  a simple neurological exam. This exam can give us a piece of the picture as to what is happening in your brain.

  • Brain fog
  • Poor digestion and/or irregular bowel movements
  • Fatigue
  • High or low blood pressure
