Alzheimer’s accounts for 60% to 80% of dementia cases. Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia characterized by progressive memory loss over time; it starts slow and grows more aggressive as time goes on. This disease can become severe enough to where daily functioning and physical capabilities are impaired. Alzheimer’s is not due to aging, in fact, about 200,000 Americans have early-onset Alzheimer’s before they reach 65 years old.Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. With research still developing and becoming more advanced, it is clear there is not one form of treatment. One of the main focuses for Alzheimer’s is the health of your brain and behavior. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s yet, there are treatments that can temporarily slow memory degradation and improve the quality of life for those diagnosed with it and their caregivers. Becoming aware of the early signs of Alzheimer’s will ensure that you and your loved one are ready to seek treatment as soon as possible.

Idaho Brain And Body Institute will provide you with treatment plans and comprehensive lab work so you receive the proper support and counseling. Our treatment plans incorporate diet, lifestyle, brain-based therapies, and nutritional counseling. These can be completed in office and at home for your convenience.
To assess the different parts of the brain we use balance, neurocognitive, and eye movement tests. We then create a treatment plan after performing these comprehensive neurological evaluations to find and address dysfunctional areas.
We provide not only a treatment plan, but also lab work so we can evaluate any nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, chronic viral infections, and any undiagnosed autoimmune illnesses.
