Alzheimer’s and Our Future: Where there Is No Cure, Prevention Is Key
by Beata Molnar
Close to five million Americans live with Alzheimer's today, and this number is expected to rise to 15 million by 2030. These numbers and statistics are staggering, and in some capacity, soon everyone will be affected. As of today, there seems to be no cure for the illness, so it’s crucial to emphasize prevention and slowing of the actual symptoms.
Alzheimer’s damage can take root in the brain 15–20 years before clinical symptoms appear, so it’s imperative to be aware of what is happening inside the skull when we still posses our cognitive functions. One of the leading figures in this field is Dr. Amen whose work resulted in the development of SPECT scanning. SPECT is a single photon emission computed tomography that shows how blood flows to tissues and organs. It appears this test might be more sensitive to brain injury than MRI and CT because it can detect reduced blood-flow to injured sites.
Apart from assessing the brain to look for damages, it’s also important to know the possible causes and factors which might raise the chances of the disease’s onset. According to research conducted over the years, these following factors are considered major culprits in the development of Alzheimer’s: blood sugar issues, circadian rhythm disturbances, emotional trauma, environmental factors, genetic disposition, heavy metals, brain injury, poor quality of life and stagnated learning can contribute to Alzheimer's. In order to avoid cognitive decline, these are the many preventative measures we can take during our younger years.
In addition to SPECT scanning, which is often expensive, another option is to undergo a biofeedback scan that picks up energetic markers which are visible before a physical symptom actually develops. You can contact the Healing Room here in Sarasota to receive this type of scanning. They have a specialized Alzheimer's Panel which is the diligent work of Dr. Ariel Policano. This scan pinpoints warning signs and also provides energetic solutions, as well as take-home data customized for each individual client.
The Healing Room has just moved into a new location in the Tuttle Wellness Center. In this center, there are numerous practitioners serving the community with the most cutting-edge technologies. For example, the complex includes Blufit Recovery and Nutrition next door to The Healing Room which offers cryotherapy, infrared sauna, compression therapy and more. The Healing Room itself features energy healing, biofeedback evaluation, stress management, PEMF therapy and sound healing.
The Healing Room and the entire Tuttle Wellness Center is located at 3525 South Tuttle Ave., Sarasota. For more information and to schedule an appointment with energy practitioner Beata Molnar, call 941-586-9539.
