Alzheimer’s disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Knowing this, it may come as a surprise to learn that only 16 percent of seniors are given cognitive evaluations during their routine medical check-ups.
Until recently, forgetfulness, lapses in judgment, and difficulty reasoning or solving problems have been thought to be a natural part of the aging process. Science is now coming to understand that what we often call “senior moments” are being caused by a downsizing of the brain’s neural network. These reductions within the brain can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Candice Hall is bringing her knowledge of functional medicine and nutritional based healthcare to the Keiro Symposium on Oct. 5th. As their keynote speaker, Dr. Hall will discuss the value of treating the contributing factors and causations of chronic and degenerative diseases, not just treating the symptoms.
Dr. Hall specializes in functional medicine which focuses on using integrative therapies to put the patient at the center of their treatment plan. Functional and integrative medicine aims to restore and manage a patient’s health and wellness across an entire lifespan. We address a broad range of physical, nutritional, emotional, mental and environmental influences that can be negatively impacting one’s health.
By shifting the focus off of the disease and redirecting our efforts towards the patient, Dr. Hall has found it leads to improved health in the long term. Our collective goal is to find the source of the problem and provide lasting wellness through personalized healthcare solutions and achievable lifestyle changes.
Dr. Candice Hall recently published an article on shifting the direction and progression of Alzheimer’s Disease on ThirdAge.com.
It is estimated that 5.8 million Americans are living with the effects of Alzheimer’s dementia. With a new case developing every 65 seconds, that figure is expected to surge to 7.1 million people by 2025.
People who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease experience a progressive escalation of symptoms that increase like the temperature of a pot of water over an open flame. The most common manifestations include memory loss, challenges solving problems, difficulty completing tasks, misplacing things, general confusion, and mood swings. When these signs reach a boiling point, it’s often too late to address them with any hope of long-lasting success.
However, there is hope for cases that are diagnosed and managed with early, customized treatment programs. Research has identified that combining the foundational tools of a keto diet, exercise, brain stimulation, sleep, and supplements is a useful way to start shifting the direction and progression of the disease.

Hydroponics often rely on the use of toxic materials like Styrofoam and plastics that contain harmful chemicals, flame-retardants, and phthalates. That’s what we and our organic farmer allies call ‘fake’ organic.
For me (and I think you’ll agree) organic means food that is grown in a way that is good for the eater, good for the farmer and good for the future. And this is the key – organic means so much more than the absence of chemicals. It means that we are also regenerating the earth, building community and supporting farmers.
If you rely upon organic food for your health and that of your family, as I do, please sign the letter as a first step to ‘take back’ organic.
Tell Jenny Tucker at the National Organic Program, who administers the certification standards, that if it’s not in the soil it’s not organic.
