Neurologic disorders ranging from headaches to brain injury, chronic pain to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS or multiple sclerosis are the largest contributor to disability around the world. In the US, more than one million adults are diagnosed with chronic brain conditions each year, and with age contributing to many conditions, these figures will undoubtedly increase.
While the statistics are alarming, there are many therapies for neurological conditions that may surprise you. Here at Causenta, we take an integrative medicine approach to neurologic conditions. Comprehensive testing allows us to create a treatment plan specific to the individual, intended to address the underlying cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
What causes Neurologic disorders?
Sometimes the cause is clear, such as genetics or a traumatic brain injury. In other cases, the cause of the chronic pain or condition may be a mystery. In the case where the cause is unknown, we go to great lengths to uncover the root of the issue. Extensive testing provides us clues to the cause as well as potential treatment options.
Exposure to chemical agents
Environmental contaminants have been strongly linked to increased risk of neurological disorders. Contaminants such as microplastics, heavy metals, particulate air, pesticides, naturally occurring mycotoxins, or secondhand smoke are neurotoxins affecting both children and adults. At Causenta, we test for over 100 environmental chemicals and have developed safe, natural strategies to reduce the damage they cause.
Infections and organisms
Did you know that the bacteria in the intestinal tract may provide clues to your neurologic condition? Changes in gut microbiota can cause neurodegenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and even certain psychiatric and neurological diseases like autism and depression. On the other hand, improvements in gut biome, through supplements such as polyphenols, has shown a positive effect on neurologic conditions.
Is my lifestyle contributing to my neurologic condition?
Nutrition plays a huge role in brain health. Dietary changes like restricting certain foods, or adding supplements to boost specific vitamins and minerals, can help to minimize and even treat many neurological disorders.
There’s an intricate dance within the body, and it is choreographed by micronutrients. Micronutrient levels play a role in controlling inflammation within the brain and spinal chord, altering our metabolism and ensuring that the intestinal tract communicates with our central nervous system – called the gut brain axis. Dietary changes can even alter epigenetics, and essentially silence certain genes that may be contributing to your neurologic condition.
Finding the right combination of dietary modifications is important to leave to professionals. The experts at Causenta test vitamins and minerals in serum and our patients’ intracellular samples with advanced food reactions as part of a cutting-edge personalized treatment plan. Nutrients inside and outside of your cells are tested to best optimize your diet and nutrition plan.
Physical activity plays a role in our physical health, but you may not realize that it can improve both neurologic and mental health conditions as well. Studies suggest that patients with neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, can delay the onset of more series symptoms through regular exercise. Resistance training and/or aerobic exercise can improve gait and balance asymmetry in persons with chronic neurological conditions, improving quality of life.
Our neurologic disorder treatment facility at Causenta is equipped with a state-of-the-art gym with technologies used to stimulate your nervous system to repair. In some cases, we have reversed or treated health problems people have had for over 20 years!
What are treatment options for Neurologic Conditions?
Every person is unique, with underlying conditions that differ. No single treatment has been proven to be 100% effective for patients with the same diagnosis, and with over 600 different neurologic disorders, there is no one-size fits all treatment protocol. Our neuro specialist team finds that a personalized treatment approach provides more successful outcomes for each person.
Here are some of the ways we combine our testing, lifestyle changes, and vital supplements to care for chronic neurologic conditions.
- We target areas within the nervous system and stimulate the formation of new neurons.
- We measure numerous biomarkers to understand the unique biological processes in our patient’s body.
- We suggest dietary modifications and use supplements and nutraceuticals
- We support aerobic/resistance exercise at our full gym in Scottsdale, AZ, helping patients improve balance and brain health.
- We use a wraparound, holistic approach with treatments such as Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy, Photobiomodulation and controlled oxidative stress therapies to treat neurological conditions.
We take a personalized treatment approach, based on individual testing, which research shows to provide more successful outcomes.
