Mild Cognitive Decline

Cognitive and neurological health refers to the health of the brain, how efficiently the brain communicates with the body while maintaining a host of other functions such as memory, judgment, language, spacial sensing, recognition, dealing with colors, images and numbers as well as the ability to learn.

Currently, one third of the population over the age of 65 will die from dementia. The rates of dementia are climbing at an unprecedented rate with the numbers expected to triple by 2050 and currently there are no medications that effectively slow or stop this process. Dementia can begin 30 years before first symptoms are present. 

With this growing epidemic, the research is becoming abundantly clear that dementia is a multi-factorial problem and no one therapeutic method will stop it. One of the main focuses for dementia is the health of your brain and  your immune system. Untreated concussions certainly play a role along with chronic infections that can increase your risk of dementia by nearly 30%. Monitoring your brain function while improving your immune response not only boosts overall health but can be an effective way for addressing dementia and lowering your risk.

We offer our Better Brain Program which incorporates the Bredesen  ReCode Protocol or you have the option to have Dr. Youngblood consult  and support you with just the ReCode Report.  To assess brain function, we perform a comprehensive neurological evaluation based on The Bredesen ReCode Protocol  which involves a Cognoscopy  which is a through review of your ReCode Report, blood and genetic test assessments.  It  evaluates the risk factors that can cause neurodegenerative disease like Alzheimer’s.  It helps the doctor and the patient chart a course to prevent or reverse cognitive decline.  Based upon the findings, a treatment plan is made to address the areas of dysfunction.

Individuals may also require additional lab work to evaluate immune function, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, undiagnosed autoimmune illness, and chronic viral infections that may have not been treated.

At YBI, Youngblood International, we put together a comprehensive treatment plan for you, using brain-based therapies, diet, lifestyle, and nutritional counseling to give you the support you need.
