Help Reverse Cognitive Decline with

Bredesen Protocol Alzheimers Treatment in Mantua, 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 Mantua, 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 Mantua 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 Mantua, 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 Mantua, 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 Mantua, 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 Mantua, 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 Mantua, 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.

Why a Fairfax Co. math teacher used the Green Bay Packers to teach math lessons

A sixth grade math teacher breaks down his probability lessons to his class by discussing desperation plays for Super Bowl Sunday.

MANTUA, Va. — As we inch closer to the Super Bowl, students at a Fairfax County elementary school are getting excited, but not for the actual game. Sixth graders at Mantua Elementary School are ready to see the math lessons they have been taught all year play out in the big game.

Mantua Elementary School math teacher Paul Malc is taking things a yard further for his students. He's using the game of football to keep things interesting for students.

When you walk into Mr. Malc's classroom, it's easy to miss the small hints of green and gold but listen in on a class, or talk to his students, and you'll quickly understand how being a Green Bay Packers fan has inspired his lessons.

“I taught and I talked to pythagorean theorem using Aaron Rodgers, throwing the ball across the field, which would represent the hypotenuse of a triangle. Randall Cobb, the receiver, around the vertical leg of triangle," Malc said explaining his methods. “A lot of teaching takes place with a textbook ... I wanted them to have reality.”

While the method helps Malc stay connected to the younger gernations, he also says his students have been more engaged, taking more notes, asking questions and taking their lessons home to their families, too.

“I thought it was really cool since I play multiple sports," sixth grader John DeSimone said. "I think it’s really fun.”

When WUSA9 visited Malc's classroom, his lesson featured probabilities for different plays that could be made in Sunday's Super Bowl. The students discussed desperation plays that could be seen Sunday and their success rate, ranging from Hail Mary passes to two-point conversions and onside kicks.

“There’s math all around us," Malc said. "Everything is math, everything is probabilities.”

Students said they already had a love for math but this helps them relate.

“I understood because I know some stuff about football from my brother and dad and so I just kind of followed along with what he was saying," sixth grader Julie Hatapogleo said.

The method is something Malc said he started nearly 20 years ago after working on the sideline of Packer's games as a statistician.

Malc has taught math at Mantua for 20 years. He said he also uses the probabilities of other realities, including when he was diagnosed in 2014 with colon cancer. Malc told WUSA9 that if the lesson doesn't apply to football, he adjusts depending on what reality fits best.

Mantua senior living community unveils first renovation in 43 years

At 43 years old, The Virginian decided the time has come for a fresh look.

The senior living community held a grand opening last Friday (Nov. 17) to reveal the results of its first renovation since getting established at 9229 Arlington Blvd in Mantua more than four decades ago.

The $67 million renovation overhauled the facility’s assisted living wing, adding a restaurant and bistro, a movie theater, a library, a fitness center, a salon and other amenities for residents and their families.

“We wanted to refresh the building and bring a new product to the market that the new generation of seniors were really looking for, providing more of an independent living setting, more flexibility and options,” The Virginian Director of Sales and Marketing Jenna Ballard said. “So, that’s really what drove this.”

According to Ballard, design work on the renovation got underway before the pandemic, but the project got put on hold during the early months of COVID-19. Construction took about three years and is expected to fully finish by the end of this year.

A 32-acre property surrounded by Mantua Park, The Virginian was acquired by an affiliate of the Chicago-based private equity firm Focus Healthcare Partners in 2019. The new owner said it would undertake a “substantial renovation that will transform the property into a true Class A asset,” the Washington Business Journal reported at the time.

The Virginian consists of 330 rental apartments, including assisted living, independent living, memory care and skilled nursing units. It currently has about 275 residents, Ballard told FFXnow.

While the renovation didn’t significantly expand the 367,000-square-foot building, it provided more amenities and common areas for residents, according to Ballard.

“It’s like a one-stop shop. Everything is here for them,” Ballard said. “They could have meals in different restaurants. They could have a number of different activities and programs all here on campus. They don’t ever have to leave if they don’t want to.”

The design by interior designer Meyer Senior Living Studio and architect Moseley Architects aimed to “honor the old town charm of colonial Virginia with a new, hospitality-inspired contemporary flair,” according to a preview in Environments for Aging magazine.

More than 100 prospective residents, community partners and members of the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce attended last week’s grand opening, which featured a ribbon-cutting, champagne, hors d’oeuvres and a VIP tour.

Ballard says The Virginian’s goal going forward is to ensure residents have access to all the services they need on campus, regardless of “what stage they are in life.” In addition to long-term residences, the facility offers outpatient rehabilitation services, including a program specifically for people who have Parkinson’s disease.

“This is one of the best communities I’ve ever seen,” Ballard said. “It’s extremely attractive to our prospects and their families, because it provides them with so many options where they can be here for life and have peace of mind when they make this decision that it was the right move for them. So, I think from the design aspect to all the new amenities and resources that we have here, I think the entire project was incredible.”

Nearly one week ago, firefighters battled a large house fire in Lorton, Virginia. Flames destroyed the Fairfax County home, but all people inside were able to escape, firefighters said.

A spokesperson with Fairfax Fire and Rescue Services said units were dispatched to the 11300 block of River Road in the Lorton area for a report of a fire around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday When crews arrived on the scene they found flames had engulfed the home on all sides. Firefighters said all people inside the home were accounted for.

The decision was made to ensure student safety, Mantua Elementary Principal Linda Shannon said in a letter to parents.

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — Mantua Elementary School Principal Linda Shannon sent a letter home to families Friday announcing that students will be banned from engaging in contact sports during recess from here on out.

The Mantua Administration made the decision Thursday to effectively ban team recreational sports that can't be supervised.

Shannon said the decision was made to ensure student safety, as there have been several avoidable injuries and spirited play that has resulted in fights that impact the school day.

Students will still be able to toss the football, shoot hoops, and play with the soccer ball at recess.

Anyone with questions or concerns regarding the allowed activities at recess is asked to contact Principal Shannon at lcshannon@fcps.edu.

Read the full letter sent to families below:

Dear Mantua Community,

Yesterday, Mantua Administration made the decision to adjust the allowable activities for students during their scheduled recess. Mantua will, for the foreseeable future, no longer allow students to play competitive, team-based contact or semi-contact sports.

It is my belief that above all else, recess needs to first and foremost be safe. In recreational settings, these team versus team sports require a referee, there are coaches, and often participants wear specialized clothing or protective equipment.

This decision was made to ensure student safety, as there have been avoidable injuries and spirited play has resulted in altercations impacting the school day.

I know this decision will be met with mixed feelings, please know that students will still be able to toss the football, they will be able to shoot hoops and play with the soccer ball – recess will still be fun!

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me at lcshannon@fcps.edu

Take good care,

Linda Shannon

Principal

Roughly 450 students in Fairfax County are in quarantine, according to FCPS.

FAIRFAX, Va. — Teachers with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) are adjusting to another way of conducting class to help accommodate students impacted by COVID-19.

The school system began offering a virtual learning option this week to children who are on pause, in quarantine or in isolation.

The StreamIN/CheckIN program allows students to watch and hear what is happening in the classroom remotely. However, they are not able to participate during the class since the mic and camera are turned off.

The livestream capability is also not required since students are able to work on their own using the material assigned by the teacher online.

Mantua Elementary School teacher Lucy Bartges has been using her laptop to pull up Zoom for her one student in quarantine. The laptop is pointed at her while she teaches although she cannot see the student.

"At first I was wondering how that was going to go because it felt weird that I'm not talking back and forth," Bartges told WUSA9. "But this still gives them a classroom experience in a way they're still able to log in and hear my instruction instead of just trying to figure it out on their own at home."

Teachers can set up a time to check in with their students at least twice a week for emotional and academic support.

"I can focus and be an in-person teacher, but I also have a peace of mind that she can hear and I can meet with her at a separate time to check-in," Bartges said.

Mantua Elementary has more than a dozen kids out of school because of COVID-19. The number has remained consistently within the last few weeks.

FCPS said out of the roughly 180,000 students, about 540 are on quarantine. The number does not include kids who are on pause pending analysis from the Virginia Department of Health.

Mantua Elementary principal Linda Shannon said while a teacher having to readjust protocols to provide a virtual learning option, it helps avoid added stress and put continued emphasis on in-person lessons.

"It's not like we're sending 20 to 30 kids so if we keep the focus on the kids that are here and ensure access to those kids that aren't with us for the period of time, I think that's the best we can do for both of these worlds," Shannon said. "This is the best for now I think, and I think teachers want to do it because they don't want students going to 10 to 14 days without interacting with them."

Parents started a petition to push for FCPS to allow remote learning options for all students. While some consider the latest option as a step forward, they plan to meet with school officials to continue the effort.

Meanwhile, Fairfax Education Association President Kimberly Adams is concerned about the increased work of having to check in with students and is asking the school district to compensate teachers for the hours.
