Dr. William Lee Cowden believes in the power of integrative medicine to heal in the human body. He has co-founded the Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine and has mentored countless doctors. He joins us on the podcast to speak about the new hope for neurodegenerative conditions like ALS, advanced Lyme disease, and autism. 

Types of Chronic Neurodegenerative Diseases

Most people are aware and concerned about neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia with good reason. These diseases are on the rise an profoundly effect patients and their family’s quality of life.

Many don’t know about the different types of dementia that can affect the brain, like:

  • Vascular Dementia
  • Toxic Dementia

Other notable neurodegenerative diseases include:

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Post-Traumatic Brain Syndrome
  • Parkinsons disease
  • Autism
  • ALS

Causes of Neurodegenerative Diseases

The toxic load in the brain has been associated with the rise of neurodegenerative diseases.

This load can originate from: 

  • Heavy Metals
  • Pesticides
  • Solvents, chemicals, plastics

This microbial component of neurodegenerative disease was found in studies of the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s.  80% had a spirochete in their brains contributing to their neurodegenerative decline. This aspect of neurodegenerative disease is not well known and completely missed by conventional medicine. 

The unhealthy Standard Amercan Diet may be contributing to the sharp rise of neurodegenerative diseases. We will continue to see this and other types of diseases increase because the nutritional content of our food is so depleted.

Increasing the Likelihood of Successful Recovery

How do emotions play a role in neurodegenerative disease recovery? By actively reducing stress and trauma you can impact your health positively. According to research, resolving emotional conflict has been linked with a better 5-year survival rate in Stage 3 and Stage 4 cancer. 

The attitude with which people approach their illness also influences their chances of recovery. 

Expecting better outcomes and maintaining hope can help cope with chronic illnesses.

The nocebo effect describes a situation in which a negative outcome occurs because the intervention is perceived to be harmful. This effect may contribute to more adverse outcomes when a patient learns about the expected development of a disease.

Maintaining a positive attitude can improve the likelihood of recovery.

Neuron Regeneration

Recent research shows that the brain can regenerate new brain cells. Dr Cowden discusses neuroregeneraton and that pharmaceuticals show little promise for disease like ALS.
Some people have shown a remarkable halt in the progression and even recovery from ALS. Some are living decades after the diagnosis using holistc methods.

Dr Cowden explains that with the right integrative doctor using the right combination of treatments and lifestyle interventions, patients have reason to hope. Even with a diagnosis of ALS. Listen in to hear more
