The global burden of Alzheimer’s Disease, neurodegenerative disorders, and cognitive decline is massive. Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death nationwide, and the only one amongst the top ten for which there is no cure. Attempts to find a viable pharmaceutical cure have, thus far, failed, and the tolls borne by victims and family members alike remain incalculable.
Research has confirmed Alzheimer’s to have a substantial prodrome; the biologic processes underlying progressive cognitive decline may in fact commence decades before symptoms begin to manifest. The discovery of a lengthy prodrome in Alzheimer’s and other dementias is cause for hope. A prodrome represents a window of opportunity, a chance to steer neurologic aging towards health, and to modify certain etiologic factors while they remain modifiable. Such factors are tools that can be wielded to potentially significant effect in a functional medicine model centered upon prevention.
