Protecting Brain and Heart Health: A Comprehensive Approach to Preventing Alzheimer's Disease

Do you know someone who has suffered from Alzheimer's disease? Have you ever wondered how to prevent cognitive decline and promote brain health? With June being Alzheimer's Awareness Month, it is a timely reminder of the importance of brain health and the steps we can take to prevent chronic inflammatory diseases that can lead to Alzheimer's disease. We are here to be your guide towards prevention and lifelong health. The BaleDoneen Method, followed by Dr. Eric Goulder at the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio, is a comprehensive approach to cardiovascular health that also helps prevent and reverse heart attacks, strokes, and many other chronic conditions such as dementia, type 2 diabetes, erectile dysfunction, and kidney disease.

These chronic inflammatory diseases are major risk factors for heart disease and stroke, and they can also lead to Alzheimer's disease. Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury or infection, but chronic inflammation can damage blood vessels and promote the development of atherosclerosis, a condition in which fatty plaques build up inside artery walls, narrowing and hardening them. Atherosclerosis can cause heart attacks and strokes, and it can also lead to cognitive impairment and dementia.

Metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome can all trigger chronic inflammation, leading to a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer's disease. Inflammation is also implicated in the development of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles, the hallmark signs of Alzheimer's disease. Preventing these metabolic disorders is crucial for protecting both heart and brain health.

What's even more alarming is that when someone has a heart attack, it is often the very first symptom of heart disease that they have had. Over 75% of heart attacks are caused by a blockage that cannot be detected by a standard stress test or heart catheterization. This highlights the importance of taking action to prevent heart disease before it's too late.

The Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio, in partnership with Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus, offers a cutting-edge approach to cognitive health through the ReCODE Program, which is designed to prevent and even reverse cognitive decline. The program utilizes a comprehensive, personalized protocol developed by Dr. Dale Bredesen, which addresses 36 metabolic factors that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. By working with the results of the PreCODE and ReCODE Reports, individuals can rebalance these factors through lifestyle modifications and a community of professionals, including PreCODE and ReCODE certified practitioners, specialists, health coaches, and nutritionists.

The ReCODE Program is particularly important because more than half of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer's have no idea they have the disease. Clumps of amyloid protein can begin to build up in the brain some 15 or 20 years before symptoms appear. Regular cognitive assessments are crucial for early detection, yet only 16% of seniors receive them.

Dr. Eric Goulder, a certified provider of the ReCODE Program in Columbus, Ohio, is working to prevent Alzheimer's disease and promote brain health through comprehensive cardiovascular care. By addressing metabolic factors that can trigger cognitive decline, the ReCODE Program offers a personalized approach to brain health that can help prevent and even reverse cognitive decline. At the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio, we believe that proactive, preventative healthcare is the future, and we invite you to join us in taking action to protect your brain and heart health. We provide a guarantee of arterial wellness; no heart attack or stroke - or your money back!
