Brain Health & Cognition

Medical innovation and knowledge has created an unprecedented expectation of
prolonged life expectancy throughout the world. Proactive lifestyle changes,
cognitive retraining, and nutritional interventions have been shown to decrease the
rate of intellectual decay and potentially reverse age-related cognitive decline. At the
Institute, we use Longevity Medicine to optimize one’s physical and mental health by
providing personalized health evaluations and customized treatments which
incorporate cognitive lifestyle changes, dietary health, and supplements for your
unique condition.

Causes of Age-Related Cognitive Decline:

Many factors contribute to age-related cognitive decline including:

  • Oxidative stress and free radical damage

  • Declining hormone levels

  • Insulin resistance

  • Obesity

  • Suboptimal nutrition

  • High stress

Symptoms of Cognitive Decline:

Everyone will develop some degree of decline in cognitive capacity, usually including
the following symptoms:

  • Forgetfulness

  • Decreased ability to maintain focus

  • Decreased problem solving capacity

If left unchecked, symptoms often progress into more serious conditions. Book an
appointment with our Cognitive Impairment Specialist, Dr. Harlan South, M.D., for a
personalized health evaluation for your unique condition. Dr. South works closely
with Dr. Lonnele Ball PhD, Chief Endocrinologist and Senior Scientist at the Institute
for Predictive Medicine & Longevity. They apply state-of-the-art technologies
towards the analysis of genetics, diagnostic and behavioral data in order to predict
an individual’s disease risk.
