For years, scientists have been striving to prevent the accumulation of beta-amyloid proteins in our brains. It’s important to note that these proteins are naturally formed molecules, and they play a vital role when there is brain trauma or bacterial infections such as herpes or pneumonia.
Beta amyloids are cytokines, killer peptides, acting as a part of the immune system as a toxin against bacteria. Clinicians are starting to understand that the presence of beta amyloids in the brain is more a result of leftover proteins after a successful attack against infection than the cause of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Over the years, there have been limited neural testing tools for detecting and tracking an aging brain’s functionality. MRI and CT scans of the brain have not displayed much help in identifying or monitoring aging-related diseases. The effect of the immune system on one’s mind has often gone overlooked – though Alzheimer’s inherently belongs to a category of autoimmune disorders that stem from protein interactions or antibodies heightened by our defense mechanisms.
Data is continuously emerging to illustrate the integral role of the immune system in managing brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases. Advanced neural testing has been developed to help researchers better understand the effects of beta amyloids on our brains. This type of testing examines how antibodies act against the brain and how they affect age, genetic expression, and environmental factors. Through advanced neural testing, scientists can better understand how different parts of the brain work together for optimal functioning.
In addition, the doctor may use several different tests to measure memory, thinking abilities, and problem-solving skills. These tests are called cognitive assessments of neuropsychological tests, and they help provide a comprehensive snapshot of the patient’s cognition and behavior.
The SAGE assessment tool effectively evaluates your thinking capabilities and detects the onset of cognitive difficulties. This self-administered, pen-and-paper exam can provide critical insights into how well your brain functions – helping you and your doctor identify any potential issues in its early stages.
Advanced Neural Testing
Advanced Neural Tests, such as Neural Zoomer by Vibrant Wellness, are designed to analyze a person’s response to 16 neurological antigens linked with various neurological illnesses. Our tests provide an in-depth analysis of immune system interaction with the brain through a single blood sample. These tests include antibodies associated with the following:
Demyelination (Anti-tubulin and Anti-myelin basic protein)
Brain barrier damage (Anti s100b)
Optical and autonomic nervous system issues (Anti-neuron specific enolase)
Peripheral neuropathy (Anti-GM1 and Anti-GM2), and
Brain autoimmunity markers include Anti HSV1, Anti cerebellum, and anti-Purkinje cells.
Through this Advanced Neural Testing, we can potentially reduce and prevent neurological conditions by providing people with an essential tool for early risk detection and emphasizing personalized primary prevention.
Which Cause of Aging Does Advanced Neural Testing Help Treat?
Our centers do Neural Zoomer Testing by Vibrant Wellness on our patients to evaluate:
As we age, our brains change, but this does not mean that Alzheimer's disease, cognitive decline, and dementia have to be inevitable.
