What are neurodegenerative disorders?

Degenerative disorders occur when cells break down over time, leading to problems like tissue and organ breakdown. This type of disease can affect any part of your body, but neurodegenerative diseases specifically affect cells within your central nervous system. 

In neurodegenerative disorders, the neurons — the nerve cells that transmit and receive signals — change in structure, function, or both. This leads to various health issues, depending on the specific neurons affected.

Some of the best-known neurodegenerative disorders are: 

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Huntington’s disease

As many as a billion people worldwide have neurological conditions, with a significant portion of them having neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. 

What causes neurodegenerative disorders?

Many factors may contribute to neuron deterioration and death, which means the causes of neurodegenerative disorders can be quite complex. According to the National Library of Medicine, neurodegenerative diseases are often tied to genetics. 

However, other causes may include toxins, viruses, tumors, and chemicals. Some neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, are associated with chronic inflammation. 

Are there new treatments for neurodegenerative disorders? 

Treatment of neurodegenerative disorders traditionally focuses on relieving the symptoms of the specific disorder as much as possible. But, at Infinite Health Integrative Medicine Center, Dr. Goolsby takes your care to the next level using the latest testing protocols and treatment innovations. 

Quantitative electroencephalogram (EEG) testing technology can effectively measure the biomarkers connected to memory loss, seizures, cognitive impairment, and other stress-related neurological conditions. This type of testing helps Dr. Goolsby design and enact the ideal treatment plan for you. 

Mesenchymal cell treatments are among the most exciting innovations in treating neurodegenerative disorders. These cells have potent properties, including the triggering of natural healing and regeneration of damaged neurons. Mesenchymal cells work from within your body.

Recent studies show that mesenchymal cell treatments offer great potential for patients with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders. Patients at Infinite Health Integrative Medicine Center have experienced results that are nothing short of transformational with mesenchymal cell treatments.
