Assesses your risk and identifies predisposing factors to Alzheimer's disease & dementia

Alzheimer’s disease is not a mysterious, untreatable brain disease – It is a reversible, metabolic/toxic, usually systemic illness with a relatively large
window for treatment
.” Dr Dale Bredesen MD

 

Multiple factors link to this devastating condition

The condition that is referred to as “Alzheimer’s disease” is a protective response to several metabolic and toxic insults. The barrage of environmental factors to which most of us are exposed can eventually turn the brain towards sickness and neurodegeneration, neuronal death and brain atrophy associated with Alzheimer's disease, cognitive decline and dementia. For example, a brain that is exposed to mercury is liable to make amyloid to bind the mercury – as a protective response. Likewise with many other toxins.

 

Functional medicine approach seeks to identify and remove those factors that are inducing the amyloid in each patient, and then nourish and strengthen the brain with appropriate nutrients and supporting molecules. Cyrex Alzheimer's test offers a unique testing panel to help make this possible. 

 

Alzheimer's disease can begin many years before symptoms become obvious, but this test can identify problems early and help pave the way for a healthy brain.

 

Cyrex Alzheimer's LINX: Alzheimer's-Associated Immune Reactivity Screen

 

Cyrex Alzheimer’s LINX – Alzheimer’s-Associated Immune Reactivity

 

 

The all-new Cyrex Alzheimer's Test is a cutting-edge test panel designed to identify key risk factors that the latest medical research has linked to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. It detects immune reactivity to specific environmental antigens and self-tissues, which potentially can contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s, as well as other neurodegenerative conditions. This creates an important window of opportunity for preclinical management of those higher risk individuals, even years before the clinical onset of disease. Alzheimer’s LINX is the result of years of intense research and development, led by Dr. Aristo Vojdani, a pioneering immunologist, recognized by many as the Father of Functional Immunology. It is a strategically planned panel of biomarkers revealing never-before-seen clinical perspectives of brain-related immune reactivity.

Possible Interferences with the Results of Cyrex Tests:

 

While Cyrex is unable to provide an exhaustive list of medications, foods, conditions or other factors that could interfere with the results of a Cyrex test, please note that:

  • Immunosuppressant and corticosteroid drugs can reduce antibody production and cause false-negative results.
  • Recent antigen exposure is necessary in order to measure antibody responses.
  • Infections can interfere with test results.
  • Please get in touch if you are concerned about possible interferences that may relate to you.
