Estimated at a cost of 277 billion, over 6 million Americans have dementia, including Alzheimer's. Family members and friends provide an estimated 18 billion dollars of dementia care annually to family members. The greatest risk: age. The functional medicine approach to cognitive decline shows that imbalances in metabolic factors can trigger downsizing of the brain. Changing lifestyle factors can help a declining brain react, prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia via a highly individualized ReCode method.
