Kick It With Donna episode 52 – Change in Perspective: Out of the Oblivion/How to reverse cognitive decline and Alzheimers
Continuing the series on Change in Perspective, my guest today will talk about how cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s can ruin your day. What can be done to help you or a loved one?
My guest today is Dr. Jade Malay. She is the Founder of Apex Physical Medicine and has practiced in the Dallas area since 1992. She is a chiropractor and RN. Her book, Out of the Oblivion, focuses on Alzheimer’s. It is the #3 cause of death and is also referred to as type 3 diabetes.
There are two types of people that exhibit signs of “something isn’t right”. One group is you. You forget things, miss appointments, lose navigational skills. The other group is you noticing that a loved one is having these issues that they may or may not be aware of. Not only are they not aware, but they are belligerent when you mention it. Many children are having to deal with putting a parent into an assisted living facility. This is not fun times. It is heartbreaking for so many reasons.
Inflammation in foods and blood sugar issues can cause worrisome problems in your body. Other issues are hormones, trauma, circulation, heavy metals in your system. Dr. Malay can send you to have a NeuroQuant Test. This is an MRI that focuses on your brain. It can provide specific information on problem areas that are present.
We all know that there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. There is no magic pill to make it go away. However, a change in lifestyle, nutrition, diet and exercise can be a positive step in managing the symptoms.
Dr. Malay’s approach is to put you on a protocol that works for YOU! She has a 92% success rate in helping people regain function by addressing the issues mentioned above.
You can learn more about Dr. Malay at dallasintegratedhealth.com. She does frequent seminars to educate people and gives out her book.
As someone with a traumatic brain injury, I made an appointment to talk to Dr. Malay and have the NeuroQuant Test done. Being proactive is better than being reactive.
