Whether due to an aging global population or increased exposure to environmental toxins (or a combination of the two), neurological diseases are on the rise in the United States and beyond. Loosely defined as conditions that affect the brain and spinal cord, neurological disorders include chronic ailments such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease”), epilepsy/seizures, and muscular dystrophy, just to name a few. While there are effective conventional medications that work to treat symptoms of neurological disease, many of these medications pose serious risks of adverse side effects. At Rejuvenation Health Wellness Center in East Hampton, NY, our team of holistic doctors and experts is dedicated to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches that treat a variety of neurological disorders and ailments.
In addition to the specific diseases listed above, neurological disorders also include cerebrovascular conditions such as headache/migraine, stroke and multiple sclerosis. These conditions are incredibly broad in terms of their scope, and can occur as a result of the neurological condition itself or as a result of an autoimmune attack on otherwise healthy cells of the body. In terms of prevalence, hundreds of millions of people globally experience symptoms relating to neurological disease. In fact, an estimated 6 million people die each year from stroke alone! Most neurological conditions are also on the rise in terms of number of diagnoses; according to the World Health Organization, for example, Alzheimer’s disease now contributes to as much as 70% of dementia cases worldwide.
Due to the severe risk of side effects posed by most prescription medications, interest in complementary and alternative medicine treatments for neurological disease is on the rise. At our globally recognized wellness center in East Hampton, Dr. Gerry Curatola and a team of holistic health experts are developing a world-renowned approach to biological medicine treatment options for neurological disease.
