From Dysfunctio​n to Function-A Functional Approach to Neurology

Many neurologic diagnoses can make it seem as if one is being robbed of life and that there is nowhere to go, and no answers to find. While a diagnosis such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, ALS, and neuropathies can seem overwhelming, some common nutritional interventions can make a huge difference in the progression of these conditions. Diet interventions have strong evidence in neurologic conditions for greatly improving and slowing disease. Ataxias and tremors can completely resolve with certain dietary modifications and changes. Neurologic conditions can improve when antioxidant status improves as well. The brain and therefore all things neurologic improve when brain nutrients are given. Nutritional IVs, certain probiotics, and healthy fats will all improve outcomes in a neurologic approach. Mitochondrial assessment can also be very valuable and nutrients are one of the key ways to improve this. There is hope, and there is health in the maze of neurologic treatment.
Progressive Medical Center has decades of experience in treating these condition and supporting patients learning how to handle autoimmune and neurological diagnoses. From IV therapy, to consultations with our expert nutritionists, all orchestrated by our integrative and functional medicine MDs, we can help you through a combination of traditional and nutritional therapies. 
“Adequate food intake and relative abundance of dietary nutrients have undisputed effects on the brain function. There is now substantial evidence that dietary nutrition aids in the prevention and remediation of neurologic symptoms in diverse pathological conditions. The newly described influences of dietary factors on the alterations of mitochondrial dysfunction, epigenetic modification and neuroinflammation are important mechanisms that are responsible for the action of nutrients on the brain health.” (Mao XY, Yin XX, Guan QW, Xia QX, Yang N, Zhou HH, Liu ZQ, Jin WL.
