Bill Gates recently sit down with the team at CNN to announce a $50 million dollar investment towards finding the cure for Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease is currently the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and affects over 5 million Americans every single day.
Over the last 12 years, the team at Carolina HealthSpan has focused on science and innovation to provide the best brain focused wellness program in the Charlotte area.

We currently believe these built up of proteins can be targeted with the help of our gut health programs. While we still can’t diagnose Alzheimer’s early, there are steps you can take today to minimize potential symptoms down the road. By focusing on your diet and challenging your brain to grow and learn you can take action today.

Our gut-health and brain focused programs are designed to tackle the root cause of cognitive issues.
