Cognitive decline and lipid profiles.
A recent study found that total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins and triglycerides in mid-life were associated with greater 20-year cognitive decline. Higher total cholesterol and triglycerides were also associated with greater 20-year decline in memory scores and a measure summarizing performance on all 3 tests.
We have options for both cardiovascular and cognitive health. We offer baseline lipid testing and cardio genomics at Second Nature. We focus on stabilizing blood sugar levels with a whole foods diet, improving sleep hygiene and promoting daily exercise for better cardiac support. Reducing stress and supporting adrenal function is critical to normal physiological function and this can be accomplished with yoga, meditation, massage and nutraceuticals like: Adrenal Essence, Adrenal Manager and AdrenaMax. There are many quality products from Xymogen for heart health - Cardiac Essentials, NiaVasc, N.O.max ER, Xcellent E, 5 MTHF and CoQmax Ubiquinol are just a few nutraceuticals that neutralize free radicals and toxic superoxides which create systemic inflammation.
Probiotics support healthy bile metabolism, maintain normal cholesterol levels and reduce INFLAMMATION

We recognize elevated heavy metals that cross the blood brain barrier as risk factors for Alzheimer disease. We test and treat heavy metal toxicity with I.V. ozone chelation therapy. It's safe, effective, advanced treatment that prevents further damage. We have specialized German biologics to support good brain function. All ozone and I.V. nutrient therapies are MD ordered in NYS.
