Dr. Richard Sinda, DO / Edina, MN

Postby SunnySideUp » Mon May 24, 2021 4:59 pm

For 10 years, my husband and I are blessed to be patients at Innovative Directions in Health, a clinic located in a suburb of Minneapolis, that specializes in preventative aging & natural hormone therapy.

Our physician is Dr. Richard Sinda, DO, who has been working in functional medicine and bioidentical hormone replacement for the past decade and became certified through the Institute for Functional Medicine in 2018. Appointments (in-person, phone or video conferencing) with him are very thorough as he goes through our symptoms and lab reports. He takes particular care to work to get our labs into the optimal range, not just the normal range, and we quickly noticed a positive difference in our overall health and energy levels. He is friendly and easy to talk to.

Dr. Sinda became a Bredesen trained ReCode practitioner and is excited to bring the benefits of Dr. Bredesen's research to as many patients as possible. What he found in studying the dementia prevention program is that many of the treatments he has been using for years to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart attack, stroke and cancer are also important for dementia prevention. Adding the additional testing and interventions with lifestyle and supplements was a very logical addition to the practice.

Dr. Sinda told me, "Having watched several patients and families struggle with cognitive decline over my career in medicine, I am thrilled to be able to offer true hope in the form of effective prevention of Alzheimer's."

Dr. Sinda and his wonderful staff have been the foundation of our journey to good health into our very active senior years. Most insurance does not cover this therapy, unfortunately, but the way we see it, it has the highest return of any investment we could make.

As someone who lived near Edina decades ago and still has fond memories of Minnesota (not so much the winters!) I'm happy to say that you can see the addition of Dr. Sinda's information, with a link to your review of him, here: Apoe4-Aware Healthcare Practitioners: Richard Sinda, DO. Thanks for sharing!
4/4 and still an optimist!
