Frequently Asked Questions
To help you navigate your cognitive health journey, here are answers to the most common questions about brain health, cognition, and RBI’s core services.
About RBI and Cognitive Health
What is cognitive health?
Cognitive health is a significant aspect of our overall brain health—specifically, our ability to clearly think, learn, and remember. Cognitive health is influenced by a number of physical, mental, social, and environmental factors. RBI helps people make integrated lifestyle changes that account for these factors to improve their overall cognition and brain function.
What does it mean to have a holistic approach to cognitive health?
Holistic healthcare focuses on a multi-factored approach to wellness. RBI takes an integrated, holistic approach to cognitive care through our six pillars: Sleeping Well, Eating Well, Staying Active, Embracing Stress, Discovering Purpose, and Connecting Deeply. By focusing on how all of these factors interact and affect your day-to-day life and brain function, we can guide you towards more comprehensive and long-lasting cognitive improvement.
Does RBI prescribe medication?
RBI is licensed to prescribe medication for Arizona and California residents. We are currently working to expand coverage more broadly. If you live elsewhere, please sign up for our mailing list, and we’ll make sure to inform you of when we expand to your state.
Where is RBI located? Do I need to attend physical appointments?
RBI is located in sunny Rancho Santa Fe, California near Encinitas and Del Mar (San Diego County). We're located at 16236 San Dieguito Road, Rancho Santa Fe, CA, #5-17 (By appointment upon purchase). Appointments can take place in person or via video conference call for your convenience.
Does RBI treat people with dementia?
RBI is experienced and equipped to deal with a number of cognitive health issues, including dementia. However, severe cases of dementia can require hospitalization and more aggressive therapeutics, which RBI is not able to provide. If you are unsure if the dementia you or a loved one is experiencing is severe, contact us about your specific cognitive health concerns to find out if an RBI program is right for you.
I don’t have any severe cognitive health issues now, but I’m worried about cognitive decline in my future. Can RBI help me?
Yes! Many people see the effects of cognitive decline in their loved ones and worry they will inherit the same challenges later in life. Others have noticed small but significant changes to their overall cognition, and want to find a way to optimize their brain. Regardless of what drives your concern for your cognitive health, RBI can help you take small steps now to improve your overall brain health and function in the future. Cognitive decline isn’t inevitable, unavoidable, or untreatable. Learn more about how RBI can help you optimize your brain and your life here.
Can physicians at RBI be my primary care physician?
No, we ask that you have your own primary care physician with whom we can work with to coordinate and manage your cognitive treatment plan.
