Alzheimer’s Disease

Conveniently located to serve the areas of New York, NY

There is hope for Alzheimer’s Disease. It all starts with working with the right specialist who utilizes top functional medicine treatment options to improve your cognitive decline. Traditional medical clinics simply prescribe medication to mask symptoms. Our functional approach goes much deeper.
 
Because we understand that certain factors, such as toxins and viruses, can cause Alzheimer’s disease, we address every aspect of your health, such as your microbiome, thyroid, and other conditions that may be causing inflammation. Dr. Kellman is highly experienced in treating Alzheimer’s Disease by creating custom treatment plans to address these contributing factors.

Condition

Alzheimer’s Disease is a neurological disorder that affects more than 6 million Americans. Patients with Alzheimer’s experience gradual loss of the structure and function of neurons which causes a progressive decline in behavior, memory, and thinking.

How to adequately treat Alzheimer’s remains primarily unknown to traditional medicine, which is why working with an experienced functional medicine doctor is imperative. We get to the bottom of the missing link to why you are experiencing cognitive decline.

Symptoms

Gastrointestinal disorders can produce a wide range of symptoms, many of which seem unrelated to the digestive system:

  • Confusion or cognitive changes
  • Decreased alertness
  • Loss of balance and coordination
  • Memory loss
  • Disorientation
  • Difficulty performing everyday tasks
  • Difficulty thinking or concentrating
  • Changes in mood or behavior
  • Challenges in planning or problem-solving
  • Experiencing poor judgment or decision-making
  • Difficulty holding or following a conversation

Causes

You may be experiencing Alzheimer’s due to a genetic abnormality, or it may have been triggered by an injury, another medical condition, or environmental toxins. Our job is to look at your health history and conduct accurate testing to determine the specific cause of your condition.

As functional medicine experts, we know there are specific causes that lead to amyloid plaque in the brain, which may result in Alzheimer’s disease. These factors that cause amyloid plaque include:

  • Heavy metals
  • Viruses
  • Toxicity levels
  • Lyme disease
  • Mold exposure
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Infections
  • Other causes of inflammation

Alzheimer’s testing

Accurate testing is a key component of any neurological disorder. At the Kellman Wellness Center, we utilize the best testing and diagnostics available for Alzheimer’s in New York to ensure we uncover the contributing factors to your condition.

Once we have a deeper understanding of what factors are at play, we then treat you accordingly with the best evidence-based and science-based treatments that functional medicine has to offer.

Art + science = diagnosis

Dr. Kellman is known worldwide as an expert in the microbiome and has extensive knowledge of the gut-brain connection. The microbiome has a profound influence on the brain. An unhealthy gut can contribute to Alzheimer’s.

First, we test for bacterial overgrowth and inflammation to rule out any gut disruptions. We will treat what we find with targeted herbs, diet, and other supplements to bring back balance to your gut. We will also use autonomic response testing to look for yeast or parasites and the TRH Stimulation Test to test for low thyroid.

Treatment

At the Kellman wellness center, we understand that every patient is unique, meaning this is not a one-size-fits-all disease. Dr. Kellman and our team of Alzheimer’s specialists will create a tailored treatment plan for your body.

All systems in the body are interconnected and affect the brain; therefore, a holistic approach to treating Alzheimer’s is critical. We harness the power of nature and technology to augment and accelerate your ability to heal.
