Help Reverse Cognitive Decline with

Bredesen Protocol Alzheimers Treatment in Chantilly, VA

There's no way around it: Getting diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease can be both scary and disheartening for patients and their loved ones. The cognitive impairment, memory loss, and eventual cognitive decline can seem like a grim prognosis. Unfortunately, the standard reductionist approach seeking to identify a single silver bullet cure doesn't account for the multifactorial nature of Alzheimer's disease.

That's why treating Alzheimer's disease requires a multifaceted response from functional medicine. While there is no single drug that can cure Alzheimer's, protocols addressing the nuanced factors contributing to the disease can make a difference. That's where Proactive Wellness Centers and Bredesen protocol treatment in Chantilly, VA comes into play.

The Proactive Wellness Approach to Brain Health

At Proactive Wellness, we firmly believe that brain health is an essential part of your overall well-being. However, despite the emergence of new research, there has been limited understanding of how to promote brain health effectively. This includes reducing the risk of dementia/Alzheimer's and stabilizing cognitive decline in patients with early symptoms. Dr. Lawson, an esteemed Bredesen Protocol practitioner and ReCode 2.0 Certified with 17 years of experience in functional medicine can identify and address the root cause of cognitive decline in you or your loved one.

Dr. Lawson's goal isn't to replace the role of family physicians. Rather, we collaborate with primary care physicians, internists, and other medical professionals to provide a comprehensive approach to care. We believe that every individual is unique from a physiological perspective, and therefore, we avoid a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, our programs focus on a customized approach, addressing risk factors that, if avoided or modified, could have beneficial effects for men and women who have dementia.

Our programs have a strong emphasis on slowing down and reversing the aging process, preventing diseases, and treating chronically ill patients. To achieve this, we employ a three-pronged approach:

  • We empower patients with the knowledge they need to manage their health and attain optimal well-being.
  • We prioritize disease prevention by conducting a thorough evaluation with the help of comprehensive diagnostics and the patient's health history form.
  • We collaborate with patients to implement a rejuvenation program that includes various science-based treatments, like our Brain Health Optimization Program (BHOP) for people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's

One of the most popular and effective programs we offer includes Bredesen protocol treatment in Chantilly VA. This revolutionary approach to dementia has provided hope and improved cognitive function for countless people in the US. But to understand the importance of the Bredesen protocol, it's important that you first understand dementia, Alzheimer's, and its effect on people across the world.

The Wide-Reaching Effects of

Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia

There are currently more than 5.8 million individuals in the United States who are living with Alzheimer's disease. It is predicted that the number of individuals with Alzheimer's disease will more than double by 2050.

Dementia is a type of cognitive decline that affects mental abilities. There are many different causes and complex layers involved. Cognitive impairment is characterized by abnormal results on tests measuring memory, speech, critical thinking, and other cognitive abilities, but individuals with this diagnosis are still capable of performing daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating. Without proper treatment, Alzheimer's disease is likely to follow within a few years. Alzheimer's disease is the most prevalent form of dementia, and it is diagnosed through neuro-imaging and analysis of cerebrospinal fluid.

In the past, being diagnosed with Alzheimer's was often worse than receiving a death sentence. It was dehumanizing and stripped individuals of their memories, thinking abilities, and independence. However, after three decades of research, we now have a greater understanding of this devastating illness and even solutions like Bredesen protocol treatment in Chantilly, VA that can help patients deal with dementia.

What Causes Dementia?

Dementia is caused by a normal and healthy brain process that malfunctions due to a toxic environment, inflammation, and a lack of necessary nutrients and hormones. The brain's defense mechanism produces amyloid plaques, which serve as a protective helmet around the brain. Unfortunately, these plaques destroy connections between nerve cells, ultimately affecting comprehension, recollection, and clarity.

Bredesen Protocol Alzheimers Treatment Chantilly, VA

Dementia by the Numbers

It's important to understand the impact of Alzheimer's disease (AD) around the world. According to the CDC, AD is present in 50% of patients in nursing homes and causes more than 110,000 deaths annually in the US. It was the 6th leading cause of death in 2015. More than 5 million people in the US are affected by AD, and recent data indicates that the problem is getting worse.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 47 million people around the world are currently living with dementia, and this number is expected to rise to 75 million by 2030 and 132 million by 2050. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60 to 80 percent of all cases.

While reading those statistics can be disheartening, there's reason to be hopeful. New therapies and treatments offered at Proactive Wellness - like Bredesen protocol treatment - can help patients deal with dementia and cognitive decline.

The Power of

Bredesen Protocol Treatment in Chantilly, VA

The Bredesen Protocol is a highly personalized treatment program that aims to reverse cognitive decline and improve brain function in patients. Dr. Bredesen has designed the protocol to be adaptable and customizable, tailored to the specific symptoms and needs of each patient.

The program is centered around lifestyle changes, medication, and nutritional adjustments, all of which are tailored to address the unique symptoms and environmental factors that may be contributing to cognitive decline. This approach, referred to as ReCODE, helps patients to combat brain fog and prevent the onset of dementia.

It has also helped patients improve cognitive function significantly, reverse symptoms, and even return to work. The ReCODE program comprises lifestyle interventions, therapeutic diets, and targeted nutrients. Proactive Wellness Centers is thrilled to offer this promising treatment modality for Alzheimer's disease to benefit our patients.

It all starts with a baseline Bredesen evaluation at our wellness clinic in Chantilly, VA.

Baseline Bredesen Evaluation from

Proactive Wellness Centers

At Proactive Wellness Centers, we have two ways to help patients who are in search of Bredesen protocol treatment in Chantilly, VA. The first option is our Baseline Bredesen Evaluation, which is best suited for asymptomatic patients - that is, individuals who do not exhibit any significant cognitive decline beyond what is expected with age. Dr. Bredesen classifies such patients as "PreCode."

This evaluation serves as a starting point for PreCode patients, as well as those who are unsure of their cognitive status and potential risk factors. Our baseline evaluation includes the following:

The first step involves conducting a comprehensive set of baseline labs to evaluate your overall health, closely following the Bredesen protocol. This step goes beyond standard labs that you might have for a physical. It includes tests for magnesium, zinc, and selenium levels, B6, B12, and folate levels, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid levels.

It also includes

  • Pre-Diabetes Evaluation
  • Hormone Level Evaluation
  • Thyroid Level Evaluation
  • Specific Immune Marker Evaluation such as TH1, TH2, IL6, and TNF.

Our goal with this assessment is to establish a starting point and compare your cognitive function against what is typical for your age group. We have chosen to use the CNS Vital Signs cognitive assessment, which is widely recognized as one of the best in the industry. Additionally, we will be conducting the standard MoCA test as part of the evaluation.

A DNA test is performed to identify the specific APOE genotype present in your DNA. APOE e4 has been shown to be associated with an increased chance of late-onset Alzheimer's disease, which occurs after a person is 65 years old.

This step covers your lab results and includes a detailed plan of action to address areas of improvement as identified in your baseline evaluation.

What are the Early Signs of

Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease?

As we grow older, it can be difficult to distinguish between normal changes in our cognitive abilities and the initial signs of dementia. The issue with preventing chronic illnesses is that we often believe we are healthy as long as we don't experience any symptoms, but this is not entirely accurate. Symptoms are typically the last indicator of a disease, meaning it has already progressed by the time they appear.

While it's always best to catch diseases before you notice symptoms, taking proactive measures at the first sign of cognitive changes can greatly impact the aging of your brain and body. It's crucial to act immediately if you're experiencing the following symptoms of Mild Cognitive Impairment. That way, ,you have a better chance of preventing the development of Alzheimer's.

CHANTILLY, Va. — With a ceremonial ribbon cutting, the Space Systems Command on June 6 marked the opening of its new office and conference center dedicated to doing business with the commercial space industry.

The command named the facility COSMIC, short for Commercial Space Marketplace for Innovation and Collaboration.

The Space Systems Command, which is headquartered in Los Angeles, oversees the majority of military space acquisitions programs. The new workspace in Northern Virginia will serve as the headquarters for the command’s new Commercial Space Office.

In remarks at the grand opening, Lt. Gen. Michael Guetlein, head of Space Systems Command, said COSMIC is a recognition of the critical role that commercial space technologies play in maintaining a competitive edge in modern warfare and national security.

The sleek facility has 10,000 square feet of conference space and offices for unclassified gatherings. The Air Force Research Laboratory and the nonprofit Virginia Tech Applied Research Corp. are partners sharing the facility.

Guetlein said that soon after the command established a Commercial Services Office last year — later rebranded as Commercial Space Office — he told its director to seek a location in Chantilly because of its proximity to the National Reconnaissance Office, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and other government organizations that work with commercial space firms.

“We needed a place where we could collaborate, a place where we didn’t have to fight through a lot of security to get to have conversations,” said Guetlein.

The Commercial Space Office, or COMSO, is led by Col. Richard Kniseley, who is based in Los Angeles. There will be a small permanent staff in Chantilly, mostly responsible for administration and contracts.

COMSO is an umbrella organization for units that already existed, including the Commercial Satellite Communications Office (CSCO), the Space Domain Awareness Marketplace, the SSC Front Door, SpaceWERX and the Commercial Augmentation Space Reserve program (CASR).

‘All in the same fight’

Guetlein noted that the military for decades has worked closely with the private space industry but the environment is changing as DoD becomes more dependent on commercial systems. He alluded to the conflict in Ukraine where commercial satellite networks were targeted and are still under threat.

“The thing that has really changed in the space environment is that we’re all in the exact same fight at the exact same time,” he said.

“We’re all on the adversary’s threat list. They’ve declared every single one of us a target. Whether you are a government civil ally or even our commercial partners,” Guetlein added. “We’re all operating in the exact same environment subject to the exact same physics trying to vie for the exact same spectrum allocation. So we are all in this together.”

The CASR commercial augmentation initiative will look at ways to partner with commercial space companies so their services can be accessed during national security emergencies.

One option is to create the space equivalent of the civil reserve air fleet, or CRAF, a program the Pentagon conceived 70 years ago to gain access to commercial airlift capacity in emergencies.

COMSO plans to hold another round of discussions with industry executives in July to figure out the way forward.

“We need to make sure that we can rely on our partners to be there during a crisis,” said Guetlein. “Commercial partners have proven they are dedicated to being there during times of conflict. And commercial innovation is accelerating to a point where they are an absolutely incredible capability,” he said. “This is absolutely the right time to build new partnerships.

‘Where’s the money?’

Guetlein noted that there is still skepticism in the space industry about government promises to spend more money on commercial products and services.

“The one question I always get from industry every single time is ‘where’s the money?” he said. The Space Systems Command estimated it currently spends about $4 billion a year on commercial space services, mostly on satellite communications and data from commercial satellites.

The goal is to create a dedicated budget line for commercial services “to get better visibility into where those efforts are … and more importantly, so that we can be transparent with industry on where we are invested.”

Demand for commercial tech

During a meeting with reporters June 6, Kniseley said his office is working on several efforts to attract commercial vendors and create a demand from military users.

The biggest piece will continue to be satellite communications, with about $850 million in commercial contracts projected per year across DoD.

COMSO wants to expand online marketplaces, said Kniseley, similar to the one that already exists for space domain awareness data.

The SDA marketplace now has 11 vendors offering commercial data on space objects and traffic in orbit. Companies have complained, however, that the marketplace does not generate significant revenue and that the Space Force is not fully taking advantage of commercial capabilities.

Kniseley said his office is working with U.S. Space Command to help build the SDA marketplace and integrate commercial data so it’s useful to operational commanders.

A new marketplace was recently introduced for surveillance, reconnaissance and tracking (STR). This includes electro-optical and radar satellite imagery, and data analysis, although the specifics are still being hashed out with the NRO and NGA, the intelligence agencies that oversee procurement of imagery and analytics.

In recent weeks, U.S. Africa Command reached out to COMSO for help to pinpoint the origin of a chemical spill that was affecting hundreds of fishermen in Guinea, West Africa. “With commercial SRT data, we actually necked down the suspected culprits from 350 ships down to five. And we think we’ve already found who that culprit was,” said Kniseley.

In the SRT marketplace, he said, “we’ll work with the NRO on commercial imagery, but there are other vendors out there that aren’t necessarily on contract with the NRO that fill a different mission area,” he said. “I’m looking at this more from a tactical standpoint and less from a strategic standpoint, because we’re going to have to get quicker responses out to the tactical edge.”

Some new areas where the Space Force is considering buying commercial services include positioning, navigation and timing that does not rely on GPS, and weather data in support of military operations.

Guetlein mentioned another potential marketplace is for data analytics focused on infrared satellite sensors.

There is already significant work going on in that area at the Space Systems Command’s Tools Applications and Processing (TAP) lab in Boulder, Colorado, he said, where government analysts, private contractors and university researchers use artificial intelligence to analyze data from the military’s missile-warning satellites.

The data is being applied not just for national defense uses but also for natural disaster response, fire fighting and other applications.

“We’re going to stand up a similar lab in Colorado Springs for space domain awareness and a similar lab for surveillance, reconnaissance and tracking to expose all of that data at the unclassified level,” said Guetlein.

Space Force commercial office to open new facility in Virginia

WASHINGTON — A Space Force office created to work with the commercial space industry is opening up a new facility in Chantilly, Virginia.

Col. Richard Kniseley, head of the Commercial Space Office at Space Systems Command, said May 11 the location was chosen for its proximity to other government agencies that also work with the commercial space industry.

“We wanted to be close to the intelligence community, NASA, and the Space Development Agency,” Kniseley said on a webcast hosted by the National Security Space Association.

The commercial services office, known as COMSO, will oversee the procurement of satellite-based services from the private sector such as communications, imagery and weather data. It also will absorb other organizations that work with the commercial space industry, including SpaceWERX, the Space Domain Awareness data marketplace, the SSC Front Door initiative and a new program that is looking at ways the space industry could support the military during conflicts.

The Chantilly facility will be a “commercial collaboration center,” said Kniseley. The grand opening is planned for June 7 when the office will host an industry day focused on space-based navigation, positioning and timing services.

Kniseley said there is a “huge appetite” for commercial space services but it will take some time to work through bureaucratic and budgeting hurdles in order to fund these services.

Most of the funding for commercial services today is for satellite-based communications and space domain awareness data. Emerging areas of interest, he said, include space-based PNT that is not reliant on GPS, weather data and space-based data transport.

Services get a small share of Space Force funding

Industry analyst Mike Tierney, head of legislative affairs at the National Security Space Association, noted that the companies in the space sector may have set expectations too high when it comes to Space Force procurement of services.

Spending on commercial space domain awareness data, for example, is about $18 million in the 2024 budget, compared to hundreds of millions of dollars budgeted for government-owned systems.

There is a disconnect between industry’s expectations and the budget reality, he said May 9. “The COMSO office has an opportunity to clarify” what it realistically plans to buy, said Tierney. “And if we can get alignment in terms of expectations, I think we’d have a lot better dialogue between commercial and government about where the right areas are.”

Todd Harrison, managing director of Metrea Strategic Insights, said the Space Force needs to “show us their plan for how they’re going to fully leverage commercial space.”

Speaking May 9 at an NSSA webinar, said the industry has heard “a lot of talk” from the government and now wants to see more specifics.

“Where could the Space Force be leveraging commercial space services? There’s all kinds of electro optical imagery, space-based radar, radio-frequency sensing, on-orbit servicing of satellites, you can go down the list,” said Harrison. “And I don’t really see much of a plan at all. And most importantly, I don’t see it in the budget request.”

“Commercial services don’t work for everything,” he said. “But where appropriate, we should see that in the budget. We should see real funding streams. And for the most part, we’re not seeing that,” Harrison said. “The commercial space office has got a lot of work to do to catch up.”

There is a risk, said Harrison, that if the government doesn’t support some of these services, companies may not survive and “the Space Force could lose this opportunity to leverage what a lot of private capital has already invested in.”

Lidl is almost ready to introduce itself to the Chantilly community.

The German grocer announced today (Thursday) that its store at the Chantilly Crossing shopping center (14445 Chantilly Crossing Lane) will officially open to customers on Wednesday, May 3.

However, for anyone who can’t wait quite that long to get a glimpse of the new store, there will be an open house from 5-6 p.m. on May 2, where attendees can tour the space, try samples and learn more about Lidl, according to a press release.

Then, on May 3, doors will open at 8 a.m. following a 7:40 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony. The grand opening will include giveaways of gift cards worth up to $100 for the first 100 people in line, along with a raffle for a $500 gift card.

In addition, Lidl will donate $1 to Capital Area Food Bank for every customer who signs up for its myLidl membership program and sets Chantilly as their “home store.”

Occupying a previously undeveloped lot at the corner of Chantilly Crossing Lane and Lee Road, Lidl joins a shopping center already anchored by Costco and Target. The addition will support a community expected to grow after Fairfax County adopted rules allowing more residential development in the area, Sully District Supervisor Kathy Smith noted.

“This is a great addition for the community and with the approval of more residential units in the area Lidl will provide another grocery store option for the residents,” Smith said in the press release. “I was pleased to work with Lidl as they went through the County land use process and welcome them to the Sully District.”

The Chantilly store will be Lidl’s 33rd in Virginia and seventh in Fairfax County. The company has also established locations in Merrifield, Fairfax, Burke, Springfield, Lincolnia, and most recently, McLean.

Known for its discounted prices and eclectic assortment of products, Lidl says it invested “millions of dollars” into the Chantilly site and brought more than 40 new jobs to the community.

The store’s regular operating hours will be from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on all seven days of the week.

The company has additional stores in the works at Liberty Market in Lorton and Pike 7 Plaza in Tysons.

“We are in the final stages of construction for both stores and expect to have more to share on both over the coming months,” Lidl spokesperson Chandler Spivey said.

The winner of the ticket is asked to contact the Virginia Lottery as soon as possible or present the ticket to the lottery's customer service center or prize zone.

CHANTILLY, Va. — Did you buy a New Year's Millionaire Raffle ticket in Chantilly for this year's drawing? If so, you might want to check your ticket because you could be the winner of $100,000.

Virginia Lottery officials said it's been more than five months since the Jan. 1 drawing which had five tickets each winning $1 million and seven tickets winning $100,000.

But, one of those $100,000 prizes remains unclaimed - and the clock is ticking. By law, winning tickets in the Commonwealth state expire within 180 days after the drawing. This means that the ticket will become worthless on Friday, June 30 at 5 p.m. - unless the winner comes forward to claim.

The winning ticket was bought at Wegman's, located at 14361 Newbrook Drive in Chantilly. The ticket number is 410073. The winner of the ticket is asked to contact the Virginia Lottery as soon as possible or present the ticket to the lottery's customer service center or prize zone.

Unclaimed prize money from the state's lottery goes to Virginia's Literary Fund. The fund is used solely for educational purposes, such as providing low-interest loans to localities for public school construction, and since the start of the fund more than $337 million has been transferred from unclaimed prizes.
