Early Alzheimer’s disease and its forerunners, MCI (mild cognitive impairment) and SCI (subjective cognitive impairment) should be tested for everyone over 45.
At our centre we run full diagnostics and therapeutics for Alzheimer dementia and other forms of cognitive decline. A new course on the diagnostics and therapeutics will soon be available to practitioners as well on Goldinginstitute.com
In terms of diagnostics we include (and not limited to) ;
Treatments include :
Do you have one or two copies of the ApoE Ɛ4 Gene?
Genetic tests can tell!
YOU CAN IMPROVE MEMORY LOSS
Genes are the predisposition, NOT the determinant! Lifestyle matters
Some experts call Alzheimer’s type 3 diabetes due to a link between diabetes, obesity and Alzheimer dementia later
Millions of people all over the world have Alzheimer disease. Females outnumber males 2:1 and the number of new cases is expected to rise exponentially. For most Alzheimer’s specialists the disease is caused by a buildup of amyloid plaque, and another protein (Tau), which interferes with the functioning of the neurons. Because amyloid, (and tau protein), is seen as the major pathology present in AD, the goal of actual treatments has been consistent in giving a a drug to remove the plaque. But so far, there have been more failures than successes. Several companies are investigating drugs that target beta-amyloid, the protein considered by many to be the main culprit in Alzheimer’s not even making it out of the testing phase for 96% of them.
Of 244 AD drugs tested between 2000 and 2010, only one was approved.
If you have Alzheimer’s disease you know that you have been labeled with an almost universally fatal disease. if you have one copy of ApoE Ɛ4, you have an increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease over someone who has zero copies; and if you have two copies, of course that’s increased further and it’s very likely that you will develop it during your lifetime. Fortunately, entirely new thinking about dementia is emerging from the field of functional and Integrative medicine. Based on recognition that the disease process contributors may include chronic inflammation, insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity; gluten sensitivity; leaky gut; refined carbs; trans fats; chronic emotional stress; lack of exercise; nutrient-depleted diets; toxicities such as metal and mold toxicities; sleep problems; microbiome dysregulation; smoking; dental infections; exposure to environmental toxins; mycotoxins; infection with Borrellia (Lyme), Herpes, Babesia, and other common chronic infections.
We Identify The Subtypes And Source Of Your Cognitive Decline
Dr Golding has qualification and certification in The Bredesen Re CODE ® Protocol
Today , there is a new and proven approach to treating those with Alzheimer’s disease. Developed by Dale E. Bredesen, MD, – known as the Bredesen Protocol TM– after thirty years of research on Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Dale Bredesen, co-founder of MPI Cognition, is an internationally-recognized expert in aging and neurodegenerative diseases. He earned his MD at Duke University, served as Chief Resident in Neurology at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), was an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow in Nobel laureate Stanley Prusiner’s lab at UCSF, held faculty positions at UCSF, UCSD and UCLA, and was the founding President and CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. He has authored the book The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline.
The Memory Loss Recovery Program
Our unique program at the Golding Institute, and Dr Golding’s medical practice utilizes the tools of The Functional Medicine Matrix, advanced laboratory testing, Diet and supplements, Cutting-edge Technology for cognitive remediation, non invasive neurostimulation, Physical therapy, occupational therapy and a team of specialists to guide you on your journey.
We Identifies the root causes of your illness:
YOU CAN REVERSE MEMORY LOSS
Most patients treated scored higher in their Cognitive Assessment tests
This Is How You Will Improve
1.Nutrition and supplements
You will meet with our team to discuss nutrition and diet recommendations and meet for follow ups.
A comprehensive supplement program will be tailored to your needs based on history and lab investigations
You will have a personalized cognitive brain training to stimulate, train, and rehabilitate the main
cognitive skills (perception, attention, memory, reasoning, etc.) and the components that make them up.
3.Neurostimulation and neurofeedback referrals will be arranged where necessary
You will receive non invasive Brain stimulation sessions to modulate cortical excitability and
inducing lasting effects including low level light laser therapy transcranially and intravenously
4.Physical Training, yoga and meditation referrals
5.IV nutrient therapy
6.Detoxification of aluminium, mercury, copper and other heavy metals
7.Niacin and infra red saunas
8.Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
9.Ozone therapy intravenously
a. Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa: Ozone disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. In fungi, ozone inhibitscellular growth at certain critical stages. With viruses, theozone damages the lipid envelope and interrupts there productive cycle by disrupting the virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation.
b. Enhancement of circulation: in circulatory disease, a clumping of red blood cells hinders blood flow through the small capillaries and decreases Oxygen absorption due to reduced surface area. Ozone reduces or eliminates clumping and red cell flexibility is restored, along with Oxygen carrying ability. Oxygenation of the tissues increases as the arterial partial pressure increases
and viscosity decreases. Ozone also oxidizes the plaque in arteries, unclogging the blood vessels.
c. Stimulation of Oxygen metabolism: ozone causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate, stimulating (2,3-DPG) which leads to an increase in the amount of Oxygen released to the tissues. There is a stimulation of the enzymes, which act as free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalyse, and superoxide dismutase. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP.
d. Formation of peroxides: ozone reacts with the unsaturated fatty acids of the lipid layer in cellular membranes, forming hydro peroxides. Lipid peroxidation products include peroxyl radicals, singlet Oxygen and ozonides.
e. Dissolution of malignant tumours: ozone inhibits tumour metabolism. In addition, ozone oxidizes the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroys them through cell-lysis (break-down). Ozone stimulates conversion of L- arginine to citrulline, nitrite and nitrate by phagocytes, acting on tumours.
10. Live blood analysis and suitable treatments
11. PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy with Rife machine)
12. Coaching : You will have ongoing consultations with a trained Alzheimer’s/dementia coach to discover, define, and move towards your desired goals and track progress
How Do We Do It? Assess
We use advanced testing, genomics, neuro imaging, neuropsychologist testing for accurate diagnosis.
1 / Conprehensive Neuropsychological Testing
We will conduct an in-depth assessment of skills and abilities linked to brain function. The evaluation measures such areas as attention, problem solving, memory, language, I.Q., visual-spatial skills, academic skills, and social-emotional functioning.
2 / Medical
A comprehensive review of your symptoms, your history, your neurological examination, and any testing that has been done up to this point. So many patients we see have been given the wrong diagnosis! We use precision medicine laboratory testing .We may include MRI with 3D Volumetric Analysis, Positron Emission Tomography, EEG and biomarker identification and quantification.
3 / Lifestyle and Functional Assessment
A registered Occupational therapist will help patients live life to its fullest by adapting the environment and focusing on what they can do to maximize engagement in activity (occupation), promote safety, and enhance quality of life. It is essential to help clinicians and caregivers make decisions regarding the choice of suitable interventions and to monitor disease progression.
