In our great country, we are seeing growing numbers of patients who have been diagnosed with diseases such as dementia, strokes, ADHD, autism, brain tumors, Parkinson’s disease, MS, and the list goes on.  One thing that all of these diseases have in common is brain inflammation.  This inflammation is multifactorial and we work with each patient to look for underlying causes of these problems.  Toxicities, nutritional deficiencies, heavy metals, high blood sugar, infection, overmedication and other factors can each play a significant role in causing these diseases.  We can use detoxification strategies, medical ozone therapies, stem cells, IV nutrition, and other interventions to improve these conditions.  Treatment is more likely to be effective if the conditions are caught and treated earlier.  One of Dr. Offutt’s favorite things to do is to help people get off of mind-altering medications who are motivated to do so.  Many people do not realize when certain medications are prescribed, such as Adderall, Ritalin, Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, opioids and other mind altering medications, these can be very habit forming.  Discontinuing these can be difficult, but staying on them for years is detrimental to the delicate balance of neurotransmitters that help us be alert, keep our memory active and healthy, have motivation, and focus and concentration.  It is never too late to consider working on this and Dr. Offutt has several success stories of patients who have been able to reduce their medication burdens significantly to be healthier, more vital, and have a better quality of life.
