The human brain is a hierarchy of 100 billion neurons that are precisely organized into functional neurological networks that directly interact with all functions of the human body. Research shows that these neurological networks function sub-optimally in a state of disease, inflammation, and poor nutrition. Age Management of West Michigan utilizes an integrative approach of diagnostic testing, functional medicine, and EEG Neurofeedback to rebalance underlying physiological systems and address lifestyle factors to optimize brain function and alleviate behavioral symptoms.
The Gut-Brain Axis comprises a complex connection of 500 million neurons and trillions of microbes that make up the enteric nervous system that is often referred to as the body’s “second brain.” Research shows that disruptions in this physical and biochemical connection directly affects digestion, mood, inflammation, cognitive decline, and overall brain function. Age Management of West Michigan utilizes diagnostic testing, along with a comprehensive gastrointestinal repair and restore program to address and repair GI dysfunction, so optimal Gut-Brain Axis function can be restored. Research show that Gut-Brain Axis dysfunction is a primary underlying contributor to cognitive decline and most mood disorders.
