How to Regain Cognitive Function: A Systems Approach to Dementia

The answer to degenerative brain diseases is not an easy one. We have the brilliant Dr. David Haase with us to explain a systems medicine approach to treating dementia. One of his core ideologies? Stay humble, curious and have a love for being proven wrong. In this episode we discuss:

  • Young plasma therapy (“young blood”)
  • How the excess of damage over repair causes aging
  • Lifestyle interventions for dementia
  • Benefits of connections between younger and older people
  • How systems medicine will transform healthcare
  • Risk vs. benefit of plasma transfusions

Systems medicine is trying to honor reality and understand the person as a dynamic psychology, spirituality, structural, electrophysiologic, biochemical, behavioral being. -David Haase, MD

We don’t have all of the answers to solving dementia, but each day we get closer. Tune in to learn about the latest discoveries for treatment options.
