About The Alzheimer's Integrative Medicine Foundation
The Alzheimer’s Integrative Medicine Foundation is devoted to the education of individuals, families, the public, and health professionals with respect to the prevention, treatment and reversal of Alzheimer’s utilizing the principles of integrative medicine.
An estimated 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's dementia in 2019. One in 10 people age 65 and older (10 percent) has Alzheimer's dementia, and approximately 200,000 individuals under age 65 have younger-onset Alzheimer’s. While deaths from other major causes have decreased significantly, deaths from Alzheimer's disease have increased significantly. Between 2000 and 2017, the number of deaths has more than doubled, increasing 145 percent, while the number of deaths from the number one cause of death (heart disease) has decreased 9 percent.
We all know that Alzheimer's and dementia place a huge burden on individuals, caregivers, the government and the nation's health care system. I know, not only from a substantial and growing body of research but also from over two decades of both personal and clinical experience with literally thousands of patients, that Alzheimer’s and dementia is in most cases preventable, treatable and reversible, utilizing the principles of integrative medicine.
What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine emphasizes the innate healing capacities of the human body; addresses the whole being—body, mind and spirit; addresses all aspects of lifestyle in evaluating health and illness; recognizes the significance of the practitioner-patient relationship in the healing process; uses less invasive, less expensive, and more natural treatments whenever possible; makes use of all appropriate therapies—neither rejecting conventional therapies not accepting alternative ones uncritically, believing that good medicine is based in science that it is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.
Everything we do is to help people be well - so that they can live a life that is full of health, joy, love and happiness.
Alzheimer’s Integrative Medicine Foundation is committed to:
Providing education and research for the prevention and reversal of Alzheimer’s disease, utilizing an integrative medicine approach; welcoming and valuing all individuals regardless of culture, race, class, gender, sexual orientation and degree of disability; partnering with other organizations as appropriate to increase visibility and impact; providing clear and honest information to donors and the public regarding our practices, goals, policies, and finances.
Donors join us as partners in furthering our mission to provide education and research for the prevention and reversal of Alzheimer’s. Any contributions are greatly appreciated.
