Dementia and Cognitive Decline

Conveniently located to serve the areas of New York, NY

Traditional doctors have very little to offer patients struggling with dementia and cognitive decline. However, from a functional medicine perspective, there are many ways we can improve cognitive function.

We treat patients looking to heal from dementia and cognitive decline by addressing the root causes, such as toxins, inflammation, and microbiome dysfunction.

After uncovering the root of your cognitive decline, will use natural-based treatment options proven to reduce brain inflammation and repair neurons to naturally improve your cognitive function.

Dr. Kellman has extensive experience treating dementia and cognitive decline with leading functional medicine treatments and has seen extraordinary results with his protocols.

What causes dementia and cognitive decline

You may have been told that the cause of dementia and cognitive decline is unknown. We have found that the following factors contribute to these neurological disorders, as well as sometimes genetics, injuries, or certain illnesses.

  • Heavy metals
  • Viruses
  • Toxicity levels
  • Lime Disease
  • Mold
  • Thyroid disorders

Dementia and cognitive decline testing

Here is where “modern” to “Conventional” medicine fails to identify the true source of dementia and cognitive decline. Our superior diagnostic protocols go above and beyond standard testing to provide the answers you have been looking for.

Mainstream medicine often misses the gut-brain association and the connection between underlying thyroid conditions and dementia. Dr. Kellman is a leading microbiome and thyroid health expert and understands their role in dementia and cognitive function.

Art + science = diagnosis

The microbiome is a significant contributor to your immune system. If your gut is unhealthy, your brain is unhealthy. We test for bacterial overgrowth and inflammation in your gut. Any microbiome abnormalities will be treated with targeted herbs, diet, and supplements.

Then we look for yeast or parasites by utilizing autonomic response testing. These factors drive chronic inflammation in the brain and may be an underlying contributor to your cognitive decline.

Additionally, we test for low thyroid. Low thyroid is a common root cause of dementia which is often missed by routine testing. Dr. Kellman uses the TRH Stimulation Test – the best possible testing available and the only thyroid testing that will give you accurate results.

Dementia and cognitive decline treatment

Our team creates custom treatment plans utilizing the most advanced functional medicine therapies and treatments that have proven to be successful.

We use a myriad of natural compounds and herbs that have been shown in studies to reduce brain inflammation and the amyloid plaque found in the brain of patients with dementia. The key is to know how to use them synergistically.

The Kellman Wellness Center is one of the few medical centers in the country that use exosomes harvested from stem cells. This treatment, along with the following protocols, has proven to be extremely successful.

  • TMS Therapy – Non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to help control mood and boost the brain’s neurotransmitter levels.
  • Bredesen Protocol – We go further than the Bredesen protocol by adding Exosomes, TMS, and more extensive use of herbs.
  • Exosome Therapy (reduces inflammation, rejuvenates and regenerates cells)
  • Novel compounds + supplements (methylene blue, nootropics, huperzine, Alpha GPC, CDP-Choline, and many others) to provide oxygenation, mitochondria regeneration, and more.
