As people are living longer we are finding they are not necessarily living stronger. The conversations around Dementia have increased and many people are not afraid of what may happen to them as they age; especially those who have family members who they have watched this horrible disease take over and eventually take their lives.
Dementia no longer categorized an “old peoples” disease. It is now affecting younger people. The Alzheimer Disease Association reports the disease is in a class all by itself. They also state there can be signs of the disease without having the disease. “It is important to note that Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging, and older age alone is not sufficient to cause Alzheimer’s dementia.”
Dr. DeWitt is a Vanderbilt University graduate who earned a full athletic scholarship after his first semester. He went on to become the starting defensive end for the next four years and was awarded the Wade Looney Award for outstanding work ethic. He continued his football career with the NFL Houston Oilers, NFL Europe Champion Scottish Claymores, Montreal Alouettes of the CFL, San Francisco Demons of the XFL, and several teams in the AFL including three seasons with the LA Avengers.
After retiring from football, Dr. DeWitt earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Los Angeles Chiropractic College. He is practicing in Orange County, at Bergman Family Chiropractic, specializing in personal injury cases and corrective chiropractic care. He is certified as a Golf Injury Specialist and an Advanced Sports Nutrition Specialist. Nutrition-based healing for concussions is gaining recognition for the vast research supporting not only how to treat a concussion more effectively and naturally, but also because nutrition helps prevent serious effects of traumatic brain injuries. Dr. DeWitt provides an “in the trenches” perspective on concussions and what they can do over the course of a lifetime for anyone in almost any sport.
