How is Heart Health Connected to Dementia Prevention?

There are 30,000 miles of arteries in your body. Just like the highways you drive on during your daily commute, the longer you live, the more you use them, the more wear and tear they get. If we don’t implement preventative care for the arteries, it can stop the flow of traffic–leading to a heart attack or stroke. These arteries are essential to carrying oxygen and nutrients to every cell of your body, including your brain.

What are the root causes of cardiovascular disease?

This damage to your cardiovascular system, over time, significantly increases your risk for developing Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia. Damage to your cardiovascular system can happen due to dozens of root causes, many of which you may not feel or be aware of.

Some of these root causes include:

  • Genetics

  • Lifestyle

  • Periodontal disease

  • Insulin resistance

  • Obstructive sleep apnea

  • Low Vitamin D

  • Hypertension

  • Gut Dysbiosis

  • And more!

The current standard of care in our country often waits until someone has a heart attack, stroke, or is experiencing symptoms of cognitive decline to determine that they are at risk. Often these root causes have been slowly developing over the course of decades, before they are noticed by you or by standard of care testing. A preventative approach to your overall health is critical to preventing a heart attack, stroke, or dementia. And if you are already experiencing signs and symptoms, it is not too late–cardiovascular disease can be reversed by following the BaleDoneen Method.

The BaleDoneen Method is a science-based methodology that is scientifically proven and accepted to both prevent and reverse heart attacks, strokes, and many other chronic conditions such as kidney disease, erectile dysfunction, type 2 diabetes, and dementia. It is focused on the specialty of arteriology, and is the cure for arterial disease.

The Heart Attack Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio and Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus is the first clinic in the nation to provide cardiology and dentistry under one roof, providing the holistic benefits of The BaleDoneen Method to our patients.
