South Florida residents, don’t miss this opportunity to schedule an appointment with Eric R Braverman MD March 26-April 7.
Eric R. Braverman, MD, one of the foremost integrative medical experts, will be visiting South Florida and conducting individual screening and diagnostic procedures at the Life Extension Medical Center, located at 1100 West Commercial Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.
Dr. Braverman will be utilizing the Brain Electrical Activity Mapping (BEAM) machines that measure the speed and strength of neurotransmissions via electrical activity. These tests, known as brain mapping, allow early diagnosis of such degenerative conditions that can affect all aspects of our metabolism, immune system, cognitive functions, hormone balance, and cellular integrity. With the results of these tests, early intervention through integrative medicine can mean the difference between optimal longevity and rapid decline.
Mini Mental Status exams done by neurologists and Wechlser Memory Scales do not pick up the brain's age. Only P300 testing or brain processing speed and other studies of brain quickness identify the brain's age. Here is what researchers say about BEAM:
“Braverman and Blum have conducted an excellent study assessing event related potential in a large clinical and control population. They found that P300 latency, an objective measure of brain function, accurately predicts memory impairment. At a time when the US population is aging the electrophysiological findings bode well as a valuable prognostic tool for brain impairment." - Ernest P. Noble, PhD, MD, Former Director of NIAAA (division of NIH), Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA
"This study provides a potential avenue to earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and further insights into how the early stages of the disease impair cognition. The use of quantitative EEG measures is a promising technique to access memory and other cognitive functions." - Orrin Devinsky, MD, Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, NYU School of Medicine and Director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at the NYU School of Medicine.
"It's a better cornerstone than anything available today for Alzheimer's early detection." - John Polich, PhD, Associate Professor of Neuropharmacology at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla , CA.
