Maintaining Cognitive Function Q&A

What should I do if I need help maintaining cognitive function?

Step one is a thorough assessment. At La Mer Holistic Medicine, the experienced team uses the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) to assess patients for dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. The MoCA evaluates your cognitive function in many ways, including: 

  • Orientation
  • Short-term memory
  • Executive function
  • Language
  • Abstract reasoning
  • Naming
  • Attention/focus
  • Drawing


The team assigns a specific number of points to each category and then adjusts the score to account for your education level. The results from the MoCA can help the team identify cognitive function issues, and they can also help determine whether you need further testing.

What is the process for maintaining cognitive function?

Maintaining cognitive function is different for everyone because it’s tailored for your needs. The La Mer Holistic Medicine team uses your test results and considers all aspects of your whole-body health when designing a healthy brain plan for you. 

The plan for maintaining cognitive function often involves making simple but highly impactful changes in your diet, exercise, sleep, and other areas of your life. You’d be amazed at what a big difference science-based changes can make in your cognitive health!

Can you fight Alzheimer’s or other types of cognitive decline?

Yes, thanks to cutting-edge protocols, it may be possible to fight Alzheimer’s and other types of cognitive decline. Combating cognitive decline focuses on finding the root cause of many conditions that cause cognitive decline, such as Alzheimer’s disease, and then treating the disease from the inside out. 

Often, cognitive decline is rooted in brain neuroplasticity imbalance. With the specialized protocol the La Mer Holistic Medicine team uses, they’re able to address your particular imbalances through individualized strategies. 

The strategy to fight and prevent cognitive decline is usually a multipart one that emphasizes your whole-body health. Your treatment providers can guide you through all of the following as you fight cognitive damage and maintain maximum cognitive function. 

  • Dietary changes
