Nutritional Medicine Specialist and Bredesen Protocol Certified
Apart from being a person with a passion to help our clients in clinic, a nerdy scientist at times, someone that enjoys/ enjoyed running, road cycling and playing lacrosse (even played in the 1998 World Lacrosse Championship in Baltimore USA in the German National Lacrosse Team) and someone busy doing all the other ‘things’ we do and think are so important in our lives, I’m really and most importantly a father and husband and lastly a friend to all the people in my life.
I have to remind myself of this importance, when things get busy and I don’t stop to enjoy what I have
Ok, so why did I get to this place in my life.
The short story is when I met my wife I was introduced to her dad, Umberto Martino.
He was a man who I never truly got to know and not because he was difficult or hard to understand but because he actually had undiagnosed Alzheimer’s and for many years had probably being experiencing slow cognitive decline. At first you might have been able to label it SCI (subjective cognitive impairment, only really noticed by the person themselves and may be other close friends or family) and then MCI (mild cognitive impairment, measureable and can be noticed by many of the people around them) but it was passed off as ‘getting old’.
So you see I never got to meet the funny, inventive, high skilled, stubborn and gentle man he actually was or had been for most of his life and so a singular event and date marked what would become the moment I would change how I thought and what I wanted to do in my life.
On the 20 August, 2010 and a meeting with a caring neurologist made me stop and finally start to read that book on Alzheimer’s I had bought 2 years before, and the rest, as they say, is history.
I started reading and I never really stopped, as well as reading up on Alzheimer’s, specifically, I started to read everything and anything that was related to health, so here we are now a qualified Nutritional Medicine Specialist with a bent for science and a realisation that there is so much more and that there is no one. singular absolute answer.
We are all our own N=1 experiment, all individuals and that’s where we at Jaeger Health come in.
We are your bridge, your coach, your nutritionist, your naturopath, your technical support and your very own research scientist.
As you can guess I specialise in treating cognitive decline but we all work on many other body systems including digestion/ gastrointestinal function/ SIBO, autoimmunity, fatigue, hormones and CVD (cardiovascular disease).
Please join us, take care, Tim Jaeger.
