Julie Rowin, MD / Westchester, IL

Postby WillsMeme » Wed May 16, 2018 1:27 pm

I found Dr. Julie Rowin on the Institute for Functional Medicine website. Here is information from her website: "Dr. Rowin is Board Certified in Neurology and Neuromuscular Medicine from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. She also holds diplomate status with the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine. She is a graduate from Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and completed her residency and her fellowship at Rush University Medical School. Dr. Rowin’s focus at APAC is on integrative and functional medicine relating to Neurological and autoimmune disorders. She specializes in Neuromuscular medicine, chronic pain, as well as medical acupuncture for a wide range of chronic conditions." I am ApoE3/4 with amyloid buildup shown on a brain PET scan, but I have no cognitive deficits. Dr. Rowin ordered multiple tests of blood, saliva and fecal materials. She spent an hour with me discussing the results, and recommended supplements as well as avoiding gluten, dairy, and sweets. Of course she also recommended exercise, meditation, adequate sleep and a healthy diet. I have just started the supplement regimen and will return for follow-up in three months. I was very impressed with Dr. Rowin and have recommended her to several people so far. Her website is http://www.apacgroupe.com.

Thank you for sharing, WillsMeme! Please keep us updated on your progress. I'm curious if Dr. Rowin ordered your PET/FDG scan? She sounds great and is not too far from me :D. I'll upload her info to our wiki.

Hi Julie, I am so glad you found such a wonderful provider! I am wondering if you know where you want to start with all these recommendations? The best part is that all those recommendations are just the right ticket to sidestep SOOO many of the chronic illnesses that are rampant in our society!
I hope you use some resources to make all those changes. Perhaps I can offer my very favorite place to start. If you have a smartphone you can download a free app called Calm. It offers meditations, relaxing music and my favorite- bedtime stories for adults. I have no idea what happens in these stories because the voice is so soothing I immediately fall asleep!
Best of luck to you!

Julie G, I had the PET scan as part of a Phase 3 clinical trial run-up. I "qualified" for the study and have been participating in the A4 trial for 3 years (recently extended from 3 to 4 1/2 years in length). I go for my next infusion tomorrow and will give them my list of supplements. I'm interested in how the study director will react. ;)

Really interesting, WillsMeme. So you have no idea if you're receiving the drug or a placebo? I love that you're open to concurrently applying other protective strategies... but I worry they will confound your current study. It WILL be very interesting to see how the A4 folks react. Please let us know & best of luck with your infusion tomorrow. -xo.

Waves, Maryann! Oops, is this meant for me or Dr. Rowin? Both Julies :D. FWIW, the thread was started by WillsMeme. Thanks for the Calm app tip. I'm going to check that out.

Hello WillsMeme, Does Dr Rowin submit the info to ReCODE Reports?

I’m not sure. I’ll ask when I go back in August for follow up. She gave me a list of supplements to take to optimize my levels, so I assumed she was using ReCODE. I’ll let you know.

Dr. Rowin says she uses the ReCODE protocol to achieve the levels recommended by Dr Bredesen but hasn’t taken his course. I’m very pleased with my results under her care so far.
