Management Options

Dementia is extremely hard to manage once it has been diagnosed. The doctor first gets a thorough background as well as runs appropriate tests. He then can develop a management plan based on each individual patient's test results. A combination of options may be advised such as specific diet, supplements, lifestyle changes, as well as certain other therapies including intravenous therapy.

However, the most successful managements actually come before dementia is diagnosed. Do you have a family history of dementia? Are you concerned as to whether you will become affected? At the Houston Wellness Clinic we will guide you as to what tests you need ran to see whether or not you have an increased likelihood of developing this, or more specifically, the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer's disease.

Only 10% of Alzheimer's disease is inherited whereas the rest is from a variety of other sources. We can assist you with dietary counseling, supplemental additions, and mineral/vitamins support that will significantly decrease your chances of developing Alzheimer's disease. Merely a phone call to make an appointment and a 45-minute consultation will go a long way in educating you concerning this malady and setting your mind at ease by taking action in helping to prevent and minimize the chances of contracting Alzheimer's disease. Our counseling and advice will also prevent the factors that lead to cardiovascular disease, the second major cause of dementia.
